The Perception of 2012



So, it has already begun. The drumbeat of doom and gloom about the so-called end of the Mayan Calendar in December 2012 can now be heard, seen and read with increasing frequency in all forms of media.

Apocalyptic books about 2012 are on publishing schedules worldwide. Networks are preparing documentaries and series about the “end times.” A recent search of – the movie business go-to website for past, present and future films – lists these upcoming titles from now through 2010:

  • Nostradamus: 2012
  • 2012:The Earth Was No More
  • 2012: The War for Souls
  • And my personal favorite title so far…2012:The Day the Earth Bent Over.

And that doesn’t even include what will be forthcoming in 2011 and 2012!

An entire industry is being fashioned around that December 2012 date, almost all of which is designed to worry, terrify and depress as many people as possible. To which I have three responses:

  • Phooey!
  • Your electricity and credit card bills will still have to be paid in January 2013, so please don’t assume otherwise.
  • There is one new film, 2012: Science or Superstition that puts all of this fear mongering in the proper perspective.

Millions of us who have made a commitment in this lifetime to evolution and hope, rather than despair and destruction, must now be vocal and steadfast. If we’re right, and I personally know we are, we can help ease the fear for so many others who truly do fear that the world will physically end in 2012. If we’re wrong, and they’re right, they can scold us when we all pass over together in whatever cataclysm descends upon us. But, don’t count on that fire and brimstone moment and, for goodness sakes, please don’t bet on it, financially or otherwise.

A whole lot of people are going to be shocked to see that the outer appearance of life is going to look awfully similar in January 2013 as it did the month before.

Remember the last “disaster” moment of Y2K? New Year’s Eve of 1999? People who awakened on January 1, 2000, found that Hal of 2001: A Space Odyssey had not become the ruler of the world, and then they told us that the next New Year’s Eve would be the moment of mayhem. Well, unless you drank too much on Dec. 31, 2000, or had a terrible date or something, January 1, 2001, looked pretty much the same as the day before.

That is one reason why I so passionately recommend 2012: Science or Superstition.

This wonderful documentary calmly and accurately explains all the theories that have led some people to believe that the end-times are near. The extraordinary author Graham Hancock is an integral aspect of the film, and deservedly so. Hancock’s epic book Fingerprints of the Gods features the best explanations of flood myths, equinox mysteries, extraterrestrial astronomy, etc.

In the film, Hancock and many others patiently illuminate all of the underpinnings of the 2012 phenomenon. They show, with clarity and insight, that there is no reason for us to assume that our outer, physical world is coming to an end in 2012. There is at least as much evidence, if not more, that the 2012 phenomenon bespeaks an inner, spiritual demarcation point for humanity. And that is the crucial distinction that those of us who believe in the manifest destiny of human evolution must champion as we approach December 2012. (The film will, by the way, be the feature selection that we send to all the members of the Spiritual Cinema Circle in July of this year.)

The choice is ours, and ours alone. We indeed can choose light over darkness, evolution over destruction, and enlightenment over extinction. This is our exquisite moment. We have the power now to assure not only our survival but also the manifestation of our most profound dreams for our species.

I choose the light and invite you to stand with me.
