2012 – The End or New Beginning?

As the relentless march of time brings us closer to another presidential election here in America, our planet is plunging ever closer to the ominous portents concerning the ending of 2012. I have always been a student of spiritual knowledge, but it wasn’t until I saw the movie 2012 that my interest in the subject was piqued. Since seeing the movie in 2009, I have been exposed to a wide range of theories that run the full gamut from total evolutionary extinction to the dawning of a golden age. Much of the uproar about 2012 revolves around the interpretation of the Mayan long count calendar which ominously ends on December 21, 2012, and also just so happens to coincide with an event being called the galactic alignment.

In case there are any folks not familiar with the 2012 controversy, it concerns the astronomical event involving our sun aligning to the central plane of the super massive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy and the precession of the equinoxes. The precession of the equinoxes is caused by the gravitational pull of the Sun and Moon on the Earth’s equator which in turn produces a slow wobbling of the earth’s polar axis. This wobbling of earth’s axis changes our orientation to the stars and constellations that we see in the night sky and a complete precession requires 25,800 years to 25,920 years.

The precession of the equinoxes is a phenomenon that has been observed throughout history by many cultures and civilizations. The Mayans are one of many cultures in earth’s history that tracked the movements of the heavens and assigned great importance to the position of the stars in their culture and lives. What I find fascinating about the Mayans as well as the other ancient cultures that record knowledge of celestial events involving our galaxy and the universe, is the technology paradox.

Historians tell us that these ancient civilizations were primitive and had no technology, yet they knew about stars, galaxies and cycles of time that we have only recently been able to verify with our sophisticated technology. To me, this lends credence to the notion that earth’s history has many secrets and many messages that need to be uncovered. It also makes me think that some of the theories about the meaning of this knowledge just might have some truth in them.

Another aspect of the precession of the equinoxes is the changing of ages. This is also a concept that was embraced by many cultures of antiquity. According to astrological beliefs, as the constellations move across the sky, so does the earth move through the zodiac. Generally speaking, the earth is ending the Age of Pisces and entering the Age of Aquarius.

Earth’s history has been violent and there have been many cataclysmic events, and I don’t know about you, but I’m not quite ready for the end of the world. In addition to my personal feelings, I too have my own vision about the meaning of this knowledge, and I tend to side with those that consider the message to be one of hope and not destruction.

It is therefore my interpretation that much of the turmoil in the world today has to do with all of these cosmic events and the turning of cycles to a new age of freedom and enlightenment. It is my belief that we all have a purpose as individuals and humanity has a purpose in the grand design of creation. I choose to have the vision that humanity is entering the Aquarian age and that means we will have the choice of a path which repeats our history of ignorance, violence and destruction, or a path that begins a golden age renaissance of cooperation and prosperity. In the course of my research and pursuit of knowledge, I have found many that share this vision of Aquarius.

There are no coincidences or accidents. We live in a universe of cause and effect. All of human history is a result of choices and free will. America is the result of a grand design and we stand at the cusp of fulfilling our destiny. It is no accident that this momentous presidential election takes place at such a time in cosmic cycles.

America has begun the process of rebuilding, and repairing the damage that George Bush inflicted on our nation, but we cannot waver at this crucial turning point. We have a President that will challenge the lawless deregulation and excesses of Wall Street and the corporate welfare state we had under Republican rule.

In the Presidents own words.

This is the choice we now face; this is what the election comes down to. Over and over we’ve been told by our opponents that bigger tax cuts and fewer regulations are the only way, that since government can’t do everything it should do almost nothing.

If you can’t afford health insurance, hope that you don’t get sick. If a company releases toxic pollution into the air your children breathe, well that’s the price of progress. If you can’t afford to start a business or go to college, take my opponents advice and borrow money from your parents.

Ya know what, that’s not who we are! That’s not what this country’s about! As Americans we believe we are endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, rights that no man or government can take away. We insist on personal responsibility and we celebrate individual initiative. We’re not entitled to success, we have to earn it. We honor the strivers, the dreamers, the risk takers, the entrepreneurs who have always been the driving force behind our free enterprise system, the greatest engine of growth and prosperity the world has ever known.

At this time Romania also immediately organized this routine event. Presidential election held in 2019 will be the determination of the fate of Romanian people in the next 10 years. Is this new president will provide Invatamant in every place, or also provide a uniform water supply throughout the region.

But we also believe in something called citizenship, CITIZENSHIP, a word at the very heart of our founding, a word at the very essence of our democracy, the idea that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and to future generations.

This was a portion of President Obama’s acceptance speech at the DNC. I see the clear choice here between these two candidates as the fulfillment of the 2012 prophecy. With Obama we choose the prophecy of hope and with Romney we choose destruction.
