What is your one prediction for 2012?

    What is your one prediction for 2012?

    What will the new year bring? Will the world economy bounce back? Will the United States have a new President? Will Pakistan still be our 'ally' ? Will Justin Bieber still be around?

    The government will get worse.  Obama will lose the presidency only causing us more grief.  The economy will not improve until the defecit is paid off.  We will invade Iran.

    That we will live on as is. The mayans who predicted our demise stopped their calendar due to the fact that they fouled their own water by making human sacrifices and had to move on to another location.
    This is why the calendar supposedly stops in 2012.
    People need to do a bit more research and see it for what it actually is.
    There is no end of the world.

    The euro will collapse and the UK will make more steps to distance itself from Europe and take back its powers.

    It is a shame that our island doesn't start floating westwards and join up with the USA! I think that Churchill and Roosevelt discussed this possibility after the World War 2.

    That the predictions people (including me) make will turn out to be wrong.

    The worldwide criminal financial system will collapse, a new social and cultural design of humanity will be on the way.

    Ok lets get something straight the mayan calender stopped because the stone masons formed a union and went on strike for fewer sacrifices better lighting and when they got the  astronomers union on their side all predictions and carvings stopped as they chanted "we dont care chaumbalaum unfair". At that point there was gridlock until their leader killed most of them and ate their hearts...but  that still doesnt mean the world wont end in 2013.....

    The new year will replay the yearly routine with some few alterations. The World Economy will bounce back but in a gradual manner, President Obama will gain re-election, Pakistan is not an Ally to the US and will never be, Justin Bieber will definitely be around.

    I will have found a way to turn my passion for writing into an excellent source of income. :-)

    Also, President Obama will continue into a second term. People are looking at the alternatives and saying, ""

    The Mayans like all people were a spiritual people.  They saw the future.  They saw men in space suits as a future occurence not as a something that had happened in the past.

    If you turned off your television, ipod, radio, and spent long periods of time in meditative spiritual introspection.  Two things would happen to you.

    1)You would have dreams of future events. Hundreds and thousands of years in advance.

    2)You would be able to very accurately predict things that were going to happen.

    All peoples have this ability; some have written down the things they have seen.

    I don't know exactly what the Mayans saw in the year 2012 but I know enough about my own spirituality to know that something that has never happened before; something extraordinary is going to happen.  The Mayans like a lot of early civilizations were unencumbered by the busyness of twenty-first century life so their minds were finely tuned and in harmony with the earth and the entire collective consciousness of the entire universe.


    I'll just wait to see what they saw.
