What will happen on December 21st?

Five years ago, on the Religion discussion forum, I learned for the first time about the belief that the world will end on December 21st. Someone asked "What will happen in 2012?"

I gave the question some thought, and then answered, "Seriously then? I think mankind is at a crossroads here. We can choose which direction we want to head - towards an Apocalypse (which I swear some people actually seem to be praying for) or away from one. My dad was talking with some friends, once - great, cynical old farts - and one of them said something like, `The meek will inherit the earth - sure - because nobody else will want it by the time everybody else is done with it.' I thought that was funny, and really, really sad, too. I think we're at a place in our history where mankind has to learn some lessons, and learn them really fast. The first thing we have to learn is to be kind to our environment. But we need to learn to be kind to each other, too - no matter what beliefs or non-beliefs we each have. We've got to give up that whole `eye for an eye' mentality - learn forgiveness, and generosity. I have hope for us. I think there's a movement of good in the world. I believe Good (Love, Truth) will win in the end."

I think the world manifests what's going on in the collective "thought" of mankind. I believe a lack of appreciation for God's beautiful creation - choosing an accumulation of material "Things" (money and personal possessions) over the expressions of Spirit (the beauty of a clean and healthy environment) is causing mankind some problems.And I believe if mankind is full of fear - if people come to expect doom in our future - then doom might be what they see manifested.

A friend of mine was telling me about this book - The Hundredth Monkey - that talks about how this group of monkeys started doing something different in their community and - without ever going to another monkey community - other monkeys in other communities started doing the same thing. It was like the idea, or the thought, was contagious - even without any physical connection between these animals. Anyway, I think thoughts can be contagious - and I think good thoughts can be contagious, too - and if mankind comes to expect good, good will happen.

I believe that if we really want to help our world, we need to stop living in fear. Stop being afraid of each other. Stop being afraid of what the future holds for us. We need to fill our mental atmosphere with love, joy, and hope - with heaven. In the book of Luke in the Bible, we read: "And when he (Jesus) was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you." And in II Corinthians, Paul says: "...behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."

I don't think the world has to end, or we have to die, to experience heaven and salvation. Jesus said the kingdom of God is within us - in our thoughts. If our thoughts are full of hope, joy, and love we're in heaven right now. Likewise, if our thoughts are full of hate, fear, and anger we're experiencing hell right here, and right now. In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy has this to say about "Heaven": "Heaven is not a locality, but a divine state of Mind..." and she defines "Heaven" as "Harmony; the reign of Spirit; government by divine Principle'; spirituality; bliss; the atmosphere of Soul."

What does our future hold? Good. Our future holds Good. Nothing can destroy Love or Truth - God - we will always have Good in our future. Count on it.

Buck up, my friends! It is our duty - maybe the greatest thing we can do for our world - to stop being afraid. We need to be alert, yes. We need to be aware and we need to be wise. And we really need to stop being afraid.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. - Isaiah 41: 9-11

"Christian scientific practice begins with Christ's keynote of harmony, `Be not afraid!'" - from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy

"[T]he belief that the world will end on December 21st..."

BPL: nonsense.

Well, I'm with you on that one.

There's a great cartoon going around - shows these two Mayans - one of them asks the other one, who's busy drawing something - if he wants to go get a tequila. And the one who's drawing says: "I'm working on this calendar. But I guess if I don't finish it, it won't be the end of the world." There's another good one, too - shows the weather forecast for this week (not sure if you can get to this one without a facebook account:

Today, December 21, 2012, a great galactic alignment is happening that occurs only once every 25,800 years! On this winter solstice, the "end of the age" occurs that Jesus son of Joseph and his disciples spoke of in Matthew 24:3. The Christ has, in fact, returned and 12/21/12 marks the beginning of the 'New Age' or 'Messianic Age'.

I've produced the "book/scroll with the 7 seals that only the Lion/Lamb can receive from the right hand of GOD" - The Revelation 5:1-10:10. The "7 seals" are 'beyond Einstein theories'.

Since the UN Resolution of 1947 recognizing the Nation of Israel, we've seen the prophecies fulfilled that herald the return of the Christ.

Ronald(6 letters) Wilson(6) Reagan(6) was the "1st Beast".

George Walker Bush Jr. was/is the "2nd Beast".

United(6) States(6) Dollar(6) is the "mark of the Beast that everyone must have to buy & sell with" - The Revelation Chapter 13 (the US $1 Dollar Bill has the #13 encoded 13 times on the back).

There's been discussion that 12/21/12 marks the end of the Age of Pisces and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius, but there is great debate here based on the position of those Zodiacal signs. But there is no debate that a great cosmic event happens on that day, that I've produced the "7 Seals"/'beyond Einstein theories' and that 'There Are No Coincidences - there is synchronism'.

Okay, Brad, now that we know all that, what do we do?

Barton Paul,

Spread the news. Spread the truth. Spread knowledge especially re: reincarnation. Spread peace and love. Promote science, math, and comparitive religion. And through non-violence means, attack those who are evil, i.e. the NRA and Republicons in Congress.
