2012: End of the Mayan Calendar,Year of Change

2012-End of the Mayan Calendar, Year of change

Will the world end on December, 21, 2012?

The year 2012 will see many changes, some of  which are beginning to take place in the now, 2009.
2012 is the end of the current Mayan calendar and many have thought this would be the end of the world as we know it. For all you fatalists, I regret to inform you that the world isn’t going to explode, it will always be here.

There is a certain segment of the human  race that seems to always assume we are in the final days, especially when a certain mile stone is reached, such as the turn of the century, a new millennium, or an event such as  the Mayan calendar coming to an end.  This is never the case, although such an event can signify a change in human consciousness, because perhaps the earth enters into another dimension or zodiac sign, or maybe just because people evolve.

The major cause for alarm at this particular time is because  the place where the December Solstice sun crosses the Milky Way is precisely the location of the “dark rift in the Milky Way”, the road to the underworld, or the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.

In other words, on Dec. 21,2012 at 11.11 AM GMT, during the December Solstice the sun will be at the exact center of the Milky Way Galaxy. According to the Maya, the center of the Galaxy is the cosmic womb: the place of the dead, transformation, regeneration and rebirth. That is why this moment shows the end of their calendar.

This event has been developing for thousands of years, and will climax on 12/21/2012 at 11:11AM,GMT.

In actuality, the Mayan calendar will not end ,it will  just recycle and start over on a new cycle, just as it has done many times before, much like an odometer on a car when the mileage reaches 100,000 miles. It will be a time of rebirth and renewal. Many worn out values and traditions no longer deemed appropriate will be discarded and replaced with customs more in line with universal knowledgeand the teachings of our fathers. As we travel through time , more and more people will see the error of their ways and align themselves with the God Source.

As we race towards this date in time, the earth will experience many changes, there could possibly be some climate changes and changes in land mass. However, most of the change will come on an emotional and spiritual level, it certainly won’t be the change that some politicians are hoping for.
Quite to the contrary, humans are going to become more aware of the shenanigans of our public officials and personalities, they will no longer be able to pull the wool over our eyes as they have in the past,much more will be demanded of them in the areas of accountability and trust.
America will once again return to it’s roots, realizing that the human race thrives on competition, doing your best, and solving problems, the human spirit was created to be free and to make decisions based on the soul’s desires. The soul was not created to be subject to domination and control, only freedom and self government can give the individual the environment it needs to fully express itself and thrive.

As the world enters this period in time, many forces are at work to strip the soul of it’s ability to prosper and grow. Many people in government, not only in America, but around the world are power crazy and think they know what is best for every one else.People will begin to realize this is not the case, only the individual human soul ,because of each one’s individual experiences and perspective is capable of deciding what is best for it. Only when individual souls are in line with like minded spirits can they live, work and love together.

As12/21/2012 approaches and passes this is what is going to evolve, more like minded people will be coming together,to work and live in harmony for the good of all, not as Communists, Marxists, or Socialists, but rather as free individuals, enjoying all the benefits of a society created by our founding fathers, a country created  so each spirit can expand it’s horizons to the fullest.

Hernando de Soto

Born in 1496, just four short years after Christopher Columbus’s historic journey to America, Hernando De Soto soon followed in his footsteps.
Desoto monument marker In May 1539 de Soto one of the early Spanish explorers landed nine ships with  620 men, and 220 surviving horses at Shaw’s Point near  present day Bradenton,  Florida,which he named Espiritu Santo after the Holy Spirit. The ships carried  priests, farmers, craftsmen,engineers and merchants. Although a few came from  Cuba, most were from Europe and Africa,and many brought their families .Very  few of them had ever traveled outside of Spain and many had never left their tiny  home villages.

For the next three years, De Soto lead many expeditions  into what is now the southeastern United States. In the  search for gold and a passage to China, de Soto traveled extensively through what is now the Carolina’s, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and  Arkansas. There is now much evidence that de Soto and his men traveled through Kentucky,entered  Indiana near present day Evansville and ventured as far north as Chicago, turning back south through Illinois and Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.

Many battles with the American Indian tribes were fought, often times causalities among the native Indians would be in the thousands. Many times de Soto and his men lost supplies, horses, and equipment .Starvation, disease, and hostile natives were thought to be just  minor inconveniences, as the promises of riches was greatly exaggerated. DeSoto was expected to colonize the area for Spain within four years and as a result his family would acquire great wealth from the mother country.
The wealth was never realized, however, because of his vast explorations, de Soto was the first documented European to reach the Mississippi River.

De Soto died of a fever on May 21, 1542 in the Indian village of Guachoya on the banks of the Mississippi River. Although many of the natives doubted this, de Soto had convinced the Indians he was an immortal sun God ( as a ploy to gain their submission without conflict).

To ensure their safety after his death, his men concealed his corpse by hiding it in a blanket, weighted it with sand and then sank it in the middle of the Mississippi River in the dark of  night.
Even though De Soto failed to find the riches or a passage to China,his impact was greatly felt in America. They brought horses and pigs to the new world, the pigs being the ancestors of the now famous razorback hogs of the southeast. Where would Arkansas be without their Razorbacks?

As with many of the earlier explorers, some of the negative influences were the swapping of disease, the Europeans brought with them small pox, and received in return syphilis and tobacco.

His explorations as well as those that followed opened the western hemisphere to others and eventually paved the way for the formation of a new country where freedom and prosperity would be available to every one who would desire it.

church and state

There has been much debate over the years about what the founding fathers meant about the separation of church and state. In recent times there has been much disinformation about how they actually believed, especially George Washington. In this short Ebook the author tries to explain how they actually felt.

Weather:The Blizzard of 1978

The Blizzard

 

Your favorite INDIANA store

Living in Southeastern Indiana, most our winters were relatively mild. A normal winter would consist of maybe two feet of snow spread over the entire season and a couple of weeks of zero weather. The rest of the winter would be cloudy and dreary, with highs just above freezing.

Starting in 1976, we experienced three increasingly several winters, with the grand daddy of them all in 1978. The winter started out innocently enough with a fairly mild pre-Christmas period. I remember thinking that this winter would probably see little or no snow, since the previous two had been so severe. Boy was I in for a rude awakening!

Everything went well until the third week in January, which is notorious for  blizzards and bad weather. The week-end saw blizzard warnings being posted on TV and radio, however as is often the case nothing develops and not much attention is given to them. Things changed on Sunday as the first wave of snow descended upon us. Over two feet fell in a short period of time and coupled with high winds, our world was paralyzed.

I had been working for UPS for 9 years and this was the first day that nothing moved. Most of the roads had been cleared so  things were better Tuesday,  life was kind of back to normal.

Then the warnings kept coming, a major blizzard was on it’s way . The weather service was predicting several feet of snow . Most thought we couldn’t have two blizzards in a week, however as the sun sat on Wednesday it became apparent that something major was in the making.

The wind had turned to the northwest and the temperature dropped. Soon the snow was falling faster the stock market in ’29. Looking out my front window and seeing nothing but snow, it was evident we were in for the “big” one.

UPS and it’s drivers had the attitude that we could handle anything and weather couldn’t stop us. We had never had a day before this week where deliveries couldn’t be made. As a result, they were sending “feeders “to Indianapolis from Cincinnati, after the freeway had been closed. About 200 units became stranded in the snow, with some isolated for up to 2 months. Needless to say that policy was soon changed, after that, when a severe blizzard was forecast, everyone was pulled off the roads at sundown.

Nothing moved until the following Monday, needless to say the highway department didn’t have the equipment to handle all the snow. Many areas were isolated, in some locations snow was piled up as high as 20 feet .The roads would be opened and no sooner than the snow plows went through, the wind would blow them shut again. Soon every farmer with a tractor and construction worker that owned a bulldozer had been hired by the state to help clean the roads.

The local Dairy Queen housed about  200 stranded truckers and motorists. After they ran out of food, more food was air lifted in by helicopter. Most were stranded for over  a week, that’s a long time to eat brazers and hot fudge sundaes.

All in all , over 60 inches of snow fell that winter.

It didn’t let up or thaw out until the last week in March, making it over two months that many people were isolated, many without heat or electricity.

My grandpa had always talked about how bad the winter of ’06 had been.I noticed he had quit talking about ’06, so I asked him why.
He just responded, ” ’78 was worse.”

Enlightenment

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search,at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source
