Surviving 2012 ? While there is no such thing as a guarantee of living or dying in the next five minutes, many people insist on thinking that prophets have a better chance of determining what will happen to all of us.
That said, if you are expecting disaster, it is wise to give some thought to the fact that true disaster rarely comes from the direction you are prepared to deal with.
Can the convergence of several prophetic sources mean that the world will come to an end on the 21st of December 2012?
Let's take a look at three common prophetic sources that appear to support the idea that humanity will be destroyed in December 2012.
Uncategorically speaking, Nostradamus does not come right out and name the year 2012 in his quatrains. On the other hand, if you read carefully, he does speak of disasters occurring at the turn of the century. Unfortunately, we cannot be certain that he referred to this century, let alone the next one. As you may be aware, Nostradamus's predictions cover several thousand years of history. It can be said that according to Nostradamus, we are surviving 2012 because humanity may have several thousand years to go before there is even a remote chance of an end in sight.
If you talk to the indigenous Maya of Mexico and the Yucatan, they will tell you that the December 2012 prophecy is pure bunk. In fact, some legitimate elders and daykeepers are coming out and speaking more plainly about the hijacking of their spiritualism for the sake of wrangling money from adventure seekers.
Individuals that seek the truth about the Mayan view of what will happen in December 2012 should learn more about the native people and their history before assigning a future global meaning to a few tablets that may have been designed during a time when the Mayan people were experience severe turbulence and a number of threats to their own existence.
Astrologically speaking, there are some interesting celestial events that will occur on 21 December 2012. For example, with Western Astrology 2012, on this particular solstice date, the Earth will be aligned with both the galactic center of the Milky Way, and a specific region known as the Galactic Rift. Even though the Maya refer to this area as the Galactic Womb, it is important to realize that all kinds of “meaningful celestial” events occur on a daily basis. In fact, the individuals that killed themselves during Heaven's Gate were all busy waiting for a comet named Hale Bopp to take them to paradise. Needless to say, the vast majority of celestial events fail to meet the expectations created by our human minds and we will be surviving 2012.
Even though you may want to know more about the prophets and what they have to say, you may also want to prepare yourself for a perfectly normal day on 12/21/2012. In fact, you may want to create a disaster plan that includes filing your taxes on time, and continuing with your mortgage payments. Unfortunately, if you focus only on all kinds of doom, then you may well forget that failure to take care of daily needs can lead to just as many problems.
Be in the know about December 2012 and prepare yourself for every possible situation that could occur. If nothing happens, Great! But what if it does and this was your warning to prepare for surviving 2012 ?
