2012-What is this World coming to?
What is this world coming to? How many times have you heard that expression? It used to be a rhetorical question, but in the year 2009, people are anxious to know the answer. I don’t think anyone really has an answer to that question.
Let’s look at what is being said about “2012” and the years leading up to it. Supposedly, 2008 to 2012 will be the years of change, positive or negative depending on who you speak to, in the way we live our lives. Pretty general, huh? I don’t claim to know more than anyone else what to expect. Do I think it will be the end of the world? Nah, I don’t think so. However, I do think that this year and the next couple of years will be a time of major changes in just about everything that has to do with our Earth. We have really abused Mother Earth and it seems she refuses to take it anymore. I can’t blame her.
The year 2012 is being labeled as the end of “The World as we know it.” As I sit here I ask myself, Is this a bad thing? Take a look at our world. What a mess we humans have made here! I have been doing a little bit of research on the subject of “2012” and I find it more interesting than scary. Mayan prophecy claims that the year 2012 will be a year of spiritual transformation or apocalypse. Mayan prophecy also claims that we are entering our Galactic Day. Although the Mayan prophecies tend to be accurate, keep in mind it is a prophecy and prophecies are read differently by various people.
On December 21, 2012 there is talk of a cosmic event that will result in humans being pushed toward a readiness to enter The Golden Age. After more research I came across a site with information regard the galactic alignment. The Galactic Alignment is the alignment of the December solstice sun with the Galactic equator. The galactic equator is pretty much the same as the Earth’s equator, only it helps people understand the geography of the galaxy.
Okay, so the planets in our Milky Way Galaxy will be in alignment with the Sun. I don’t see what harm that should do, but then I’m not a scientist. Even if I was a scientist or astronomer, I don’t see how we can change what the planets and Sun will be doing in the year 2012.
Well, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see, but I don’t think it’s Armageddon. I do, however, think it’s time that we all woke up and became responsible. It’s time to take an interest in what we contribute to the Earth and it’s needs, and begin to treat our planet with care. This is the only world we have.
