For those “12/21Mayan Believers” Please read Matthew 24:36 (Jesus said) “But as for that day and hour no one knows it – not even the angels in heaven – except the “Father” alone.

I agree. It doesn’t say no one will “believe.” It says know one will “know.”To me, this date simply marks the last day of a COLOSSALLY LONG CALENDAR…So, what generally happens after the LAST DAY of any cyclical calendar (or means by which we measure TIME: a second, minute, hour, day, week, …century, millennium)?We celebrate the FIRST DAY of the NEW CALENDAR!!!For example, the first day of our Western (Gregorian) Calendar is on January 1st. This is a mere “time-stamp” allowing us to functionally (or perhaps dis-functionality) indicate that we now have been given permission to PASS GO…
…and begin another lap around The Sun!
Sorry to burst the narrow-minded bubble of our Western culture, but the “Infinite Expanse of the Cosmos” does not schedule itself by our Earth’s orbit, around our Sun, in our Solar System, in our Milky Way Galaxy.There are scores if not hundred of calendars, by which ancient and modern cultures (other than our own) mark time. The Ancient Egyptians, alone, had THREE different calendars
- Lunar/Sothic: 1460 Years
- Civil: 25 Years
- Solar/Seasonal: 360 (30 x 12) + 5 days
The first day of the Ancient Egyptian Calendar is our July 19th. It marked the beginning of the “Season of Inundation” (The Flooding of The Nile River), which brought and deposited nutrient rich soil for a new harvest. This anticipation symbolized The Divine Gift of Abundance, Redemption, Rebirth, Renewal and so on!!! (Not disaster, calamity, and chaos.)Furthermore, their is no indication of the use “tense” (past/future) in the Ancient Egyptian language. All events (past/present/future) can only happen NOW. They understood everything as “happening NOW.” There is no beginning and no end; no birth and no death. The Spirt is eternal and infinite. Transmutation Spirit into the form of a Soul was the required for—incarnation (entry into the human vessel) and—birth to occur. A Soul exists in time; The Spirit is omnipresent and limitless.It is well known in quantum physics that time is NOT LINEAR. “Time” is a subjective experience, measured mostly by man’s objective calculations and instrumentations. However, as MODERN humans in this tangible plane, most of us have a become slaves to objective time—living in the future” (or the past)—rather then THE MOMENT.
The MOMENT of NOW is ETERNAL..
