The Mayan Prophecy.

So for years and years and years we’ve been hearing that something exciting/awful/exhilarating/enlightening is going to happen on December 21, 2012. Legend says that this is the date that the Mayan Long Count Calendar comes to an end. Apparently, it is also the date that the Sun, the Earth and the center of the Milky Way Galaxy are in perfect alignment.

Now, of course this whole Mayan Prophecy thing isn’t based on the fact that it’s 12/21/12. Numbers, or rather, the value that we assign to a specific point in time, have nothing to do with it. The fact of the matter is, for some reason, the Mayan Long Count Calendar ends with this particular Winter Solstice. That’s why the Mayans didn’t mention anything about Time Zones or clock positions or the International Date Line.

Okay, then.

The truth of the matter is, I hope that something does happen this Friday during the Winter Solstice. I hope that people start finding the good instead of the bad. I hope that people start finding common sense again and I hope that people start thinking along the lines of the Greater Good instead of just concentrating on the Richer Self.

Do I think there’s going to be some sort of cosmic or galactic shift? I hope there will be, a shift in perception and a shift in attitude.

I know that I’m not going to wait for the New Year to try to better myself with a bunch of resolutions. I’m going to start the next Mayan Long Calendar with an open heart and an open mind. Maybe the Galactic Alignment will help others do the same.
