So the World didn’t go up in a puff of smoke, explode, disintegrate or end on December 21st 2012 as hyped and predicted by those in the so called know.
Oh stupid Mayans, how could they get it so wrong? So much for being some sort of super intelligent civilisation who could predict the future. We are still here, very much alive and going about business as usual.
Contemplate for one moment though that the Mayans were actually very accurate with their prediction and perhaps the reason the World didn’t end is not because they Mayans got it wrong but because we have reinterpreted what the Mayans meant by the word “apocalypse”.
Time for some linguistics and word derivations:
Apocalypse comes from the Greek apocálypsis, meaning uncovering or literally – disclosure of knowledge that was hidden from humanity in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception. This is also termed lifting of the veil or revelation.
Thus simply put Apocalypse means Revelation or Enlightenment.
The Ancient Civilisations possessed enormous knowledge, wisdom and powers. Its irrefutable, just take a look at the pyramids and ancient superstructures and explain how they were constructed with only simple tools and manpower alone. But I digress….
It was known by the ancients that this power could be misused and cause great harm to mankind. And so the wisdom was passed down to a select few via hidden meanings in ancient texts and religious scriptures. This scared knowledge was possessed by the likes of Galileo, Da Vinci, Newton and many many more; but was kept hidden from society under a code of silence and the use of symbolism and metaphors that only a mind and heart capable of aligning to the wisdom could unravel and understand.
The ‘End of the world’ or apocalypse, literally means to uncover or to reveal that which is hidden and is a metaphor used by the Ancients to symbolise the end of the darkness.
Every religion mentions the End of Time and the coming of a New Era, bringing with it a period of enlightenment where mankind would come to immense knowledge and wisdom. An Era when the veils would be lifted and we would realise that there is so much more to us than this physical form.
The Mayans weren’t telling us the World would end, they were predicting the end of the darkness and the beginning of a new way for humanity.
But it is WE who have failed to grasp the real meaning of the predictions as throughout history words have been bastardised to keep us from their real meaning, not by those who possessed the wisdom but those who did not want us to have it.
Obviously the predicted upheaval and destruction of the Earth was a damp squib, a none event and will be seen by many as media hype and somewhat of a joke as our interpretation of events was misguided. And once again many in humanity will miss the truth of what could be.
Yet we have lived to see a new dawn.
And now the question is will we live to see a new way, a way that allows us to see who we really are, a way that fosters our inner wisdom, a way that embraces the New Era of Light as predicted by the great wisdom of the Ancients, a wisdom that comes from the heart, a wisdom that resides equally in everyone.
