You Remember 2012?

Dear Reader,

It is more than 10 years since people were being alerted to the phenomenon called the end of the Mayan calendar - 21st December 2012. People popularly thought that this was another "End Of The World" hoax, but its meaning was a lot more profound. Since then it has fast disappeared from our consciousness. Should we still be concerned about it? This article discusses why it is still relevant.

An alert to the 2012 event was made manifest as a crop circle in 2008. The picture below shows this in the form of a diagram of our solar system.
The place and the date of a crop circle is shown, but the most interesting thing is that from the positions of the planets in this crop circle it was possible to calculate a date that corresponded quite accurately to the planetary positions that would occur on the aforementioned 21st December 2012. 

Significantly on this date, our Sun and the Earth crossed the Milky Way galactic plane –  an event that only occurs approximately every 26,000 years – heralding a change from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. About this, cosmologist John Major Jenkins wrote:
For human beings on earth, the period of increasing spiritual darkness is about to end. We are going to ‘turn the corner’ and enter a phase of ascension toward the next Golden Age, when spiritual light and consciousness will dawn into the world again. The coming galactic alignment is a cosmic event that invites us to grow spiritually. It is built into the Divine Plan and identifies the time we live in as a time of rare opportunity for our growth.

We can identify this period of shift, the Global Shift, as stretching between 1980 and 2016. It is fascinating how the Maya insightfully encoded knowledge of this future alignment into their calendar. They also encoded this galactic alignment into their basic institutions. For example, the Mayan ballgame is a metaphor for the sun (the game-ball) moving into Galactic Center (the goal-ring). 
On top of that, there are messages in the Great Pyramid of Egypt that indicate changes (as indicated in The Great Pyramid Decoded by Peter Lemesurier, 1977 (reprinted 1996):
Between 2004 and 2025 (+/- 3 years): the collapse of materialist civilisation.
Between 2014 and 2032 (+/- 3 years): a spiritual low-point among mankind.
From around 2025 there begins an upward change in societies …
Are we not seeing - right now - evidence of these shifts actually taking place?

All this does not mean the end of the Earth. The end of the Mayan calendar (2012) did not mean the end of the Earth. What it does mean is that there will be plenty of change and, to add hope about the new age, Aquarius symbolizes freedom, equality, co-operation, global consciousness and reason prevailing over emotional reactions. All the signs of change that we are currently seeing are pointing in this general direction.

How are we to deal with the forthcoming changes, for it is already proven that the old materialistic/mechanistic ways will not do?

Mankind has been given an ideal path to tread by particularly great spiritual messengers from time immemorial. They include Rama, Krishna, Lao Tsu, Confucious, Zoroaster, the Buddha, Mahavira and Jesus. These personages delivered the spiritual message according to place and the ways and the time of the people.

When Jesus said, “I am the Way”, he was not saying that he, exclusively, was the only person via whom persons could reach salvation. Jesus was in fact referring to the teachings that should be followed to attain salvation – the way of egoless-ness, the teaching of not only Jesus but all the other great messengers. But ego-lessness indicates the need for action - to work on one-self.

Moses and Mohammed were also great messengers, but they were essentially law-givers. However, even in Judaism we find the central spiritual teaching contained in the Kabbalah and, in Islam, in the teachings of the Sufis, and others.

Recently, mankind had the physical presence of Sathya Sai Baba, who passed from this life in 2011. Before he ‘left’, he stated that the Golden Age is already upon us. It would seem that there will be many incredible things that we shall behold, but during all this we should remain steadfast, be quiet and inwardly seek help from the Almighty.

I have been reading about the accounts of these matters for over 40 years and have experienced the many teachings and practices of Christianity, Islam and Hinduism. I believe in these occurrences and meanings. I am aware of how civilisations such as the Sumerian and Egyptian (and, some say, the Atlantean) all failed. They eventually lost contact with the true unitarian faith; intellectual knowledge became their pride. And that is our problem today; now is the time when we need to adjust to the Truth. The Heart is the true centre of intelligence, not the brain.

The Truth can only be known by the application of right values through self-knowledge. Values profoundly influence our lives. They are part of the very reality that each of us experience daily. They give structure to a life and point the way into the future. They help supply meaning to existence. They create specific motives, influence how we will perceive things, and help determine our thinking. They are prominent in the major choices of life, of partners, friends, occupations, and social groups. They are implicit in our conceptions of the good life. Values function both as constraints and stimuli.

Therefore, if we would take some time to think about it, there is a need to reflect and determine what is of true value. Even to review our existing belief system.

An example of spiritual idealism is taken from anthropological literature concerning the Hopi Indians of North-Eastern Arizona, indicating that an ideal individual can be summed up by the term "hopi". This is usually translated as ‘peaceful’. It includes the following values:

(a) Strength – physical and psychic including self-control, wisdom, and intelligence
(b) Poise – tranquillity, and ‘good’ thinking
(c) Obedience – cooperation, unselfishness, responsibility, kindness
(d) Peace – absence of aggressive, quarrelsome or boastful behaviour
(e) Protectiveness – preserving and protecting human, animal and plant life
(f) Health
These values make up the Hopi – the one-hearted, good, personality.

The Hopi universal view is explained beautifully in this short video.
As Sathya Sai Baba revealed in the following statements, our values and actions can so easily permeate through the whole world:
If there is righteousness in the heart there will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character there will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home there will be order in the nation.
When there is order in the nation there will be peace in the world.
Lastly, let us return to the matter of crop circles. This video reveals a lot more about crop circles that appeared during July-August 2008. And they did not stop there: they have been 'cropping' up ever since, but most of us have forgotten to look out for them.

A rational explanation? Well, Colin Andrews tries to explain in this video (and part 2). Before you say it, Colin himself admits that many of these shapes are made by people. But what about the others? The ones that are made without signs of ground activity and have left traces of magnetic influence...

This is surely a time to deeply reflect on our existence.

Thank you for reading this.
