2012 end of the world: the truth (and lies) behind the movie

This is a short article on 2012 end of the world that I created for those who are seeking reliable information on this topic. This article is not about the movie: it’s about the truth the movie covered up.

“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the master calls a butterfly.”
– Richard Bach

2012: end of the world is a Hollywood science fiction disaster movie which references the end of the Mayan long count calendar. However, this is where the truth ends.

Yes, 2012 end of the world is about an end (of sorts). But it’s also a new beginning. One that’s unfolding now and will continue to unfold for many years, long after 2012. It's also about a choice we have: grow into a new dimension - or not.

2012 end of the world: the truth behind the movie

2012 end of the world movie: lies (scared yet?) lies

In the years leading up to December 21, 2012, everywhere I turned it was one of two extremes. Either 2012: end of the world (literally). Or, in 2012 we’d instantly ascend and (poof) be in a golden age. Neither felt right to me. But as I was curious to know what the hoopla was about, I began researching.

Keep in mind while reading...

I’ve derived this short article from literally hundreds of hours of research on 2012 end of the world and related topics over years. As you peel away the layers, remain curious and hold each lightly. It’s like a big jigsaw puzzle! No one person has all the answers and that includes me.

2012 end of the world: what it DOES NOT mean

Allow me to state the obvious. 2012 end of the world NEVER meant that the earth would end in 2012 and we'd all be destroyed. Nuff said.

2012 end of the world: what is really ending

What’s ending is a dimension, era, cycle or way of being. While there was an ending, there is now also a beginning. But to step into this new way of being, we’re going to have to leave some old (comfy) habits behind.

Here are my thoughts on what 2012: end of the world means.

End of ancient calendar systems

Yes, 2012 marked the end of the Mayan long count Calendar. However, the Mayans were not the only ancient people who understood the importance of 2012. Many ancient cultures all over the world identified this time period as significant. For more on this, listen to the CD set 2012 Mayan Date of Destiny. It’s rather academic, but worth it if you really want to dive in.

End of astronomical cycles

Measured by astronomy and astrology, 2012 marked the end of not only a major earth cycle of 25,920 years, but many other cycles (and cycles within cycles).

For more on the cycles, read Richard Tarnas Cosmos and Psyche. He doesn’t get into 2012 end of the world topics, but focuses on astrological cycles and their relationship to world events.

Another good source of information is David Wilcock. I like David’s work as he’s good at explaining complex things simply. He’s been accused of being rather optimistic about the shift from 3D to 4D, but he’s never got caught in 2012 end of the world fear-mongering. I find him human and if he makes a mistake, he admits it. He’s one of the people I keep my eye on.

In his work, David explains how the 25,920 year cycle is derived and talks about the shift and 2012. Here’s a good introductory video by David that’s a few years old, but a good place to start.

2012 Event Horizon: Prophecies and Science of a Golden Age

End of Earth’s time in third dimension (3D)

Our universe is made up of many dimensions, some of which we can see and some of which we can’t. The earth is shifting now from 3D reality to 4D (the earth shifted in 2012). So this is another way of seeing 2012 end of the world. 4D is more harmonious than 3D and this is why some call 4D a golden age.

Anyone or anything that isn’t aligned with 4D will no longer be compatible with the earth. To learn more about 3D and 4D, you can search the online database The Law of One. This shift won’t happen overnight by the way... and we’re in this shift now.

I resonate with The Law of One personally because it empowers us and ties in with science. Give it a read. If it doesn’t feel right to you, then go on to something that does. By the way, David Wilcock also speaks of the Law of One and I’ve heard Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot mention it too.

Having said that, I've also heard a great deal controversy about The Law of One: that it contains some truth and some disinformation. So as it is with all of this type of "out there" information, it always comes back to us and our own discernment. So learn, expand your mind - and come back to your own knowing.

What you need to do

What 2012 end of the world really means is that we (humanity) have a choice to make. Go with (grow with) the earth into the more harmonious 4D. Or remain in 3D. The choice is ours as we have complete free will.

Don’t get caught up in fear about “making it” to 4D. There is no heaven or hell (so to speak). Those souls and entities in 3D will, after their lifetimes here on earth, move on to planets and dimensions which are compatible with 3D.

If you want to grow on the positive path...

  • Seek the truth
  • Become a kinder person
  • Stop judging others
  • Forgive yourself and others
  • Let go of bitterness, resentment, anger (3D) AND any apocalyptic fears around 2012 end of the world
  • Respect others’ free will (this is a biggy: not doing this breaks a cosmic law and I understand, creates karma)
  • Think of and do for others slightly more than you do yourself (Law of One calls this spiritual path Service to Others).

Use your discernment and continue to seek!

One thing I’ve learned from studying the 2012 end of the world topic is that there are many opinions out there, many layers and many rabbit holes. To really get to the bottom of things and see the big picture, you may not only have to tumble down one or two (I sure have!).

So remain curious. Hold things lightly. Add the meaning of life to your spiritual development. Use discernment. Take a break from the topic if you need to. In the end, always come back to your heart.

Above all, enjoy the journey. For the shift we’re in is not one not of end, but big change and in time: a world with more harmony and love.
