Flipping the page

A short statement on Dec. 21, 2012:

The Mayan Long Count Calendar is coming to the end of a b’ak’tun, a time period of 144,000 days.  The b’ak’tun is not the largest division of the Mayan calendar; because the Maya civilization took place over a relatively short span of less than 2,000 years, they didn’t write the dates of their calendar any further than the numeral place for the b’ak’tun.

In other words, while this is a significant milestone in the Mayan calendar, it is not the end.

So, if you are changing your calendar from one month to the next, does the world end?  How about at the end of a century and the beginning of another?  Even though we saw considerable fear in many people as we approached the change of the millennium, when that end came, the world continued to spin quietly in its place.

Of course, if the world does end next week, I’ll feel pretty dumb.  But my bet is on the 21st passing like any other day, and a lot of people waking up on the 22nd with egg all over their faces.  Think carefully, whether you want one of those over-easy countenances, or whether you’ll be waking up calmly, peacefully, and ready to face the beginning of the next b’ak’tun with hope in your heart.

  1. My Guru is a prophet. She has predicted so much that has happened throughout the years. She also says it is not going to be the end of the world. But she does say there will be a lot of changes because of the planetary alignments. The weather will be a huge factor, and also the fear in people because most do believe it will be the end. Stay safe.

I love to read your thoughts...
