According to the Mayan Calendar the long running show (Life as We Know it) comes to a close on

12/21/2012.  The Mayans predicted this sometime during 250 through 900 AD.  That’s a long time ago.  Hard to be accurate so far before an event.  I guess they figured that since they would pull a disappearing act some twelve hundred years ago it would be a real yuk to stir things up way into the future.  Afterall, no ramifications would be felt by the perpetrators, and it has kept them in the news ad nauseam.  Actually, the Mayans didn’t really disappear, but became assimilated about the time the Spanish showed up.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of modern men and women who are in a frenzy over this prediction.  Some people aren’t sleeping, others spending more money on the holiday season then they would normally.  Still others are taking this wake up call to appreciate and recognize the importance of family and friends.  How we shouldn’t take anyone for granted and savor the time to appreciate the life that we have.

What if the world does end on the twenty-first, have I made the most of the years I’ve had so far?   It’s a great excuse to take stock.  I can think of much wasted time in my past.  Staying angry at people over petty incidents.  Worrying about a few extra pounds and not getting up to dance to a favorite song.  Washing the kitchen floor instead of laying out on a beautiful sunshiny day.  I’m not going to do any of that from the 22nd forward.  Nope, I’m turning over a new leaf. 

I don’t really believe we are interpreting the Mayan prediction correctly. The world will be here rotating on it axis long after I’ve made my own exit.  I’m going to continue to plan and shop for the Holiday Season.  Buy a New Year’s Eve outfit.  Schedule a Vacation.  And catch up with friends, even into 2013.

Perhaps, in the future, I will reconsider anything that does not make the most of my life. Watch out world its time to reinvent myself once again. And, oh yeah, I’m not sending in my Property Tax Payment until after December 21st!


Mayan End Age 12-21-2012 heralds a New Age of spiritual enlightenment

Mayan calender
Mayan Calender “Both the Hopis and Mayans recognize that we are approaching the end of a World Age… In both cases, however, the Hopi and Mayan elders do not prophesy that everything will come to an end. Rather, this is a time of transition from one World Age into another. The message they give concerns our making a choice of how we enter the future ahead. Our moving through with either resistance or acceptance will determine whether the transition will happen with cataclysmic changes or gradual peace and tranquility. The same theme can be found reflected in the prophecies of many other Native American visionaries from Black Elk to Sun Bear.” — Joseph Robert Jochmans

“An Apocalypse (Greek: “lifting of the veil” or “revelation”) is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e. the veil to be lifted.” — Wikipedia

“BIG SUR, Calif. — At twilight, not far from a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, a Mayan shaman spoke of the return of Kukulkan to dozens of listeners sitting on the floor inside a yurt: As Venus, a planet of special significance to the ancient Mayans, passed directly between the Sun and Earth in June, the forces out there were heralding the return of Kukulkan, the snake deity, and the start of a new age of spiritual enlightenment in 2012.

‘The cosmos is talking to us — we need to listen,’ said the shaman, Miguel Angel Vergara. ‘Kukulkan shines in the infinite. Kukulkan is the sacred energy beating in every atom. Kukulkan is the feathered serpent living in your heart forever.’ ”
