So now the buzz for the next two years, will be about the end of life as we know it, on this great planet earth. According to what you believe, we are either headed for an apocalyptic type end of the world, or an earth shattering enlightenment on December 21, 2012, aka twenty-twelve.
The mythology behind the 2012 enigma focuses on the ancient Mayan Calendar which mysteriously ends on December 21, 2012. Interestingly enough, that date also coincides with the winter solstice, which brings about a predicted "galactic alignment" believed to occur when our solar system passes directly through the Galactic Equator. Pretty scary stuff, right?
But not to worry, because I have it on great authority that there is nothing in Mayan belief that envisages a scenario which determines the demise of the planet earth and the end of mankind. Rather, the idea is one of amazing and collective rebirth. A period of new found cosmic awareness. An era in which humanity expands their collective conscious awareness. Kind of like one, big, collective Oprah "AHA" MOMENT, where everyone, everywhere in the Universe will finally get it.
So be prepared, for the next two years you are going to be hearing the following buzz words, ad nausium:
End of mankind, "Sacred Tree", magnetic pole shift, black hole in the Milky Way, reverse rotation, depletion of the ozone, increase in volcanic activity, shift in human consciousness, supernova explosions, torsion waves and so on and so on. The good news is that It will give everyone something to think about, other than the economy. The bad news is that it will give us one more thing to worry about. Don't say I didn't warn you.
