In 1987, the 2012 odyssey marked the beginning or the winding down of a distinct paradigm shift for planet earth. What does that really mean? The End? The Beginning? Both?
According the Mayan Calendar, December 21, 2012 marks the end of an epoch and the beginning of another, meaning an epoch or long count was based upon a recurring time period of precisely 1872000 days, approximately equal to 5125.36 years. The actual time cycle of 13 Baktuns, or 1872000 days, is sometimes referred to as a Great Cycle of the Maya. Or even a World Age.
We are ending the last cycle or Baktun meaning that’s as far as the Mayan calendar extends. Many take this as a literal end, but most think of it as The New Age of Spiritual Enlightenment, the end of the earth as we know it and the beginning of a the New Earth, where consciousness is higher, people have stronger, more capable bodies, the destruction from wars no longer plague humans, people work together to build, help one another, and innovative political systems actually serves everyone.
Many wish to spread fear; firm believers are positive that the world is going out with a big bang. Some intelligentsia offers fear-provoking theories that termination is the fate of our home. A few examples are physicist, Richard Hoagland: “Regarding mainstream scientists who dismiss the idea of a 2012 event, Hoagland explained that this is because they refuse to examine the emerging science of torsion physics,” which he believes play a major role in the cycle coming to an end.”
Survivalists are heading underground, taking families, friends, food, medicine, guns and ammunition and anything that is thought of to survive ten years and re-populate the earth after the radiation disappears.
Popular biblical scholar Ronald Weinland advises that the end is found in Revelations in the bible and his own thoughts: “On December 14, 2008, the First Trumpet of the Seventh Seal of the Book of Revelation sounded, which announced the beginning collapse of the economy of the United States and great destruction that will follow.
For the people who subscribe to these unhealthy and unhappy visions of the future this could very well be a personal reality unless the visualization changes, 360°. Why would the The Source of all Love and Wisdom destroy one of its most wondrous creations?
Best selling author Gregg Braden, computer systems designer and many other titles advises:
”From cycles of weather to the balance of carbon dioxide between the oceans and the atmosphere, nature shows us that a pattern will repeat until something new replaces it. The change that accompanies the 2012 convergence of cycles is a rare opportunity to wipe away the patterns that we’ve outgrown from the past. At the same time, it’s also a precious choice point to set healthy, new patterns in place for our future and the future that belongs to our children . . . and to theirs.”
Admired self-healing author, lecturer and all-around intellect Dr. Wayne Dyer provides compelling thoughts regarding 2012: “I think there’s a major shift taking place on the planet, and at the completion of it there’s going to be a lot of talk about the Mayan Calendar and 2012. There’s a major shift taking place in the world politically, religiously, spiritually. Even the election of Obama is a very significant thing taking place. When Colin Powell said that he is a transformational figure, he is right. Th[ere] is a shift, a real shift, away from ego, away from ambition, away from the way that we are going to solve the problems of this planet, which is through power, and bombs, and war, which has been the way, especially for the last eight years, into a way of cooperation and reaching out. I think the line in Obama’s inaugural address, in which he said “we will extend a hand to you if you’ll unclench your fist”, I think that’ll be the line he will be remembered for. Not only that, but it’s being done. We are talking about moving to a place where we can leave this planet secure for our children and our grandchildren. I think the shift is going to be happening all over.”
There are as many differing opinions about world changes as consciousness allows. For those who truly believe the big bang destruction theory—it may well be their personal reality. The Law of Attraction is absolute, whether for abundance or destruction.
The Odyssey, like any unknown adventures, can be debilitating, depressing, and fearful where hopelessness abounds. OR. . .the unknown Odyssey towards a new and better way for our lives, as well as our children and grandchildren can be exciting, exhilarating, and healing all at once. Don’t worry if fear grips you when an earthquake or tsunami takes place. That’s normal. Just change the focus to re-building, hope and enlightenment.
Just breathe. . .Know all is well, and everything that is happening is for purpose. We are creating reality each and every day for yourself and your world. As REM, the musical group, states in a song, “It’s the end of the world as we know it—and I feel fine.
Namasté to the inhabitants of our home, Planet Earth.
