There is a lot of speculation regarding the date of December 22, 2012. Some people believe that it means the end of the world. In a sense those people are correct but it is not the end of the world as in Armageddon. The Mayan calendar ends on December 22, 2012 to signal the end of the age of man and the beginning of the age of Christ consciousness. December 23, 2012 marks the first day of the Seventh Golden Age on earth. The world is not going to be destroyed in a dooms day kind of way. The physical sun with begin to change and at some point we will have a new calendar.
The Seventh Golden Age is about the ending of selfishness, greed, and the altered ego making life hell upon the earth. I say Amen to that!
Speaking of the Mayans, I went to Cancun Mexico many years ago and visited the Mayan Pyramids in Chichen Itza. It was one of the most awesome experiences of my life. The Mayans were very advanced people and even had their own observatory. The Mayans were a lot smarter than many people give them credit for. I have so much respect for the Mayans and the civilization they had on earth.
Standing in front of this enormous Mayan pyramid I felt such a sense of awe.
