Hollywood and popular media has amassed forturne from 2012 doomsday interpretations. Books, documentaries, movies, and many other things have clogged our atmosphere as many of us were seeking to interpret the meaning of the end of the Mayan calendar. Was it the end of the world? Perhaps, was this the end of an era or world as we understood it? Or was it all hype? In other words, December 21 might have been just a regular day like any other. Asking these questions is a moot point as it appears that the world has not ended in the literal sense. In fact, the money that has been spent to encourage coversations, focus our attention and create human worry has succeeded to a point. It created buzz, but I wonder what the focus will be now? I can see it either in theaters or upon the cover of a new book, “2012: Mayan Prophecy Revisited.”
Many of us listened to December 21st interpretations as background noise to everyday life or as an entertaining addition to our many other interests. As a lover of mythology and ancient civilizations, the Mayan prophecy fed my appetite for story and mystery. Then there is a segment of the population who looked upon this moment as an invitation to a rebirth of self, planet, and human consciousness.
Maybe the world did end for some and for others it continues as it always was. Most who became oblivious to all of this might say that nothing has changed. The many who were busy trying to figure out what it all means missed an opportunity to make these moments most meaningful. Then there are the others who created the story and thus a reality of December 21, 2012 as the portal to an alternate and different reality. For whatever it is worth, 12/21/12 has come and gone and all of us have this moment to create or live the reality we wish.
