Understand the Deeper Meaning Behind 2012
2012 represents two very important events: historically, it represents the so-called ending of the Mayan calendar, and astronomically, December 21, 2012 is a once-in-26,000 years or so time when our sun is poised in a very specific and rare placement in the Milky Way galaxy.
The more one studies the Mayan calendar history and prophecies, one ends up having more questions than answers. It’s quite possible that asking questions is what the Mayans wanted us to do in these modern times. Imagine that centuries ago the powerful Mayan culture and people reached forward into our future and said, through their amazingly accurate calender calculations, “don’t miss this important date and year!”
So important was the future for the Mayans that these calendars were carved in stone, and look like a mandala which is a circular piece of art. The Mayans thought of time as circular, and rather than the calendars we have of one day, month, and year following after each other, the Mayans thought of and documented time as flowing in a circle. Sounds very similar to modern clocks.
The Mayans didn’t really lay out any specific prophecies as much as they carved in stone specific astrologic events. An extremely advanced culture of mathemeticians, their astrologic calculations are near-perfect. The steps of Mayan stone pyramids are also said to be a series of calculations of the passage of time. So everywhere you looked in the Mayan culture there was a huge obsession with time.
Sounds pretty modern, doesn’t it? Aren’t most modern cultures pretty obsessed with time and making sure everything is happening according the clock? The Mayans obviously had a very sophisticated timing system for the events that affected their world.
Why are there so many dire prophecies right now about catastrophies in 2012? If the Mayans created a circular calendar indicating time was never-ending, why then are there so many people saying that because there are no more Mayan calculations after 2012 this means that time ends for the world?
There are no specific Mayan prophecies saying that 2012 is the end. It may be the end of the calculations, but it also looks like the Mayans were trying to tell us it was a tremendous beginning by carving in stone the very important date of 12/21/2012.
The Mayans left us a very positive sign by calling 12/21/2012 a sacred doorway. That day, all of us on Earth lucky enough to be born at the right time, will experience our sun being in alignment with the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
It is possible that the Mayans wanted to send this message to us alive on planet Earth now of how fortunate we will be to experience the “sacred tree,” and that they wished they could be with us. Through these very special calendars, they are. What we will make of the day and the year of the sacred tree is up to us.
