For those expecting the Rapture to hit and spirit them up to the sky on 12/21/12, yes, it will be a big disappointment. That is not what the end of the Mayan calendar signifies. Not the end of the world. Dawning of a new age. I'm trying not to have expectations, but it would be oh so lovely if it is an ENLIGHTENED age with thinking people instead of gullible sheeple.
Agreed Mom! Each moment in time has a Universe of information for us. We tap into the 4th Dimension. It only needs "Me" to open up the window, hang out the antenna, tune in and listen to that "still small voice." Some would call it the Holy Spirit. Some would say it is "OM Namah Shivia." "The Divine Hint."
Whatever name you use, it cannot be heard unless one drops the guard. All preconceptions need to be thrown out of that window first. Let the Breath of Fresh Air come in and bathe your entire being. Be quiet. Be still. Be humble.
JCL, I'm not sure how many are even aware. I think less misunderstanding and more ignorance. For most, just plain ignorance. Haven't a clue and will never get a clue. For those in power, willfull ignorance. Doesn't fit with their agenda.
