The End of the World Project

Some say that the ancient Mayan civilization believed the world would end in 2012. Other people say the Mayans did not believe this. We are on the brink of discovering who is right. In the meantime, we can make art in celebration of this auspicious event. Friday, December 28, 2012 Post-Apocalyptic Entries These are the final submissions that came to the 12-12-12 End of the World Project.

December 21, 2012 (or December 12, 2012): Bible, 12/12/12 and Mayan calendar. (Dec. 12, 2012 and Dec. 21, 2012 are not dates to worry about.) December 21, 2012 (or December 12, 2012), the Bible and the Mayan calendar: The Mayan calendar stops and restarts Dec. 21, 2012 (or Dec. 12, 2012). Many expect big things to happen 12/12/12 (or 12/21/12) . But the Bible tells us not to focus on sure-to-fail predictions, and instead to focus on responding to God himself. Dec. 21, 2012 (or Dec. 12, 2012) will not have the impact many expect.     Free online Bible study —       Online Christian Bible studies and Bible verses for daily living           Visit www.DougBrittonBooks.com . . .

12/12/12: What's Going to Happen December 21, 2012
According to the Mayan Calendar? (Don't worry. Dec. 21, 2012 is a day like any other day.)

(c) 2006 Doug Britton (Permission granted to print for personal use)

Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the sky, though the nations are terrified by them (Jeremiah 10:1-2).

No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father (Matthew 24:36).

12/12/12: What's the significance of December 21, 2012 (or December 12, 2012)? Many spiritualists, astrologers, and other people involved in "New Age" religions or other approaches to spirituality think December 21, 2012 (or December 12, 2012) is going to be a big day. They say that the ancient Mayan calendar's cycle will stop and then restart then, and that something significant will take place. Their predictions range from cataclysmic events to the world being "reborn" Dec. 21, 2012 (or Dec. 12, 2012).

History is full of failed predictions. It's understandable that many people would get caught up with this idea about 12/12/2012. Throughout history people have been fascinated (or scared) by predictions about coming cataclysmic events or the world's end. There have been countless failed predictions, but people either re-interpret what was said ... or they simply forget and look for the next big thing.

Spiritualists and astrologers are not the only ones to get caught up with false predictions about "big" days. Many Christians thought the first millennium would see the return of Jesus Christ, and again many expected earth-shaking events a few years ago at the second millennium. (Do you remember the Y2K fears?) Dec. 12, 2012 and Dec. 21, 2012 will be no more significant than those days. The Bible warns us not to trust in astrology. In another online Bible study, I summarized God's warning in the Bible about astrology, the occult, mediums, divination and sorcery.

The main problem with these practices is that they cause us to look to other sources of "power," not to God himself. God created everyone alive. He loves us and wants a close personal relationship with us. When we get caught up with "spiritual" ideas, we often think we are seeing the bigger picture when in fact we miss God himself.

God is not simply a "force," an idea or a nebulous spirit. He is real, and his passionate love for you is real.

God communicated his message of love through Jesus. Jesus' message of love is very different from that of the many "New Age" religions and schools of thought. The Bible does predict cataclysmic future events. God's Word, the Bible, tells us that someday Jesus will return to earth. Momentous things will happen around that time. We are encouraged to live lives worthy of God and to be ready for that day. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord (Acts 2:20).

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare (2 Peter 3:10). But the Bible also tells us that no one knows when that day will take place. That includes 12/12/12. Numerous people have claimed to know and have been proven wrong. It shouldn't be a surprise that they were wrong, because the Bible says no one knows.

December 21, 2012 (or December 12, 2012) is no more likely than any other day to be the day when Jesus returns or when anything else of significance happens. No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father (Matthew 24:36). Don't get sidetracked by Dec. 21, 2012 (or Dec. 12, 2012). Focus on what is really important, not on 12/12/12: God loves you and doesn't want you to worry about the December 21, 2012 (or December 12, 2012) predictions. Instead, he wants you to enter into an intimate relationship with him and to grow in his Spirit. Don't get distracted! Instead, "Come near to God and he will come near to you" (James 4:8). Ask God to reveal his love for you. (Click here for info on God's love for you.) Sometimes we think of God as being a big meanie in the sky, yet just the opposite is true. God's love for us—and God's love for you—is amazing. Even his commands, which sometime seem like a bummer, are for our good. Take a minute to read this Bible study on God's love for us. There's nothing more strengthening than to bask in God's love. Bookmark this "Mayan calendar" page and add it to your Favorites.

"12-12-12" The Concert for Sandy Relief The Robin Hood Relief Fund

Robin Hood has launched a large-scale relief effort to aid our neighbors in the tri-state area whose lives have been shattered by Hurricane Sandy. Within hours of the storm, Robin Hood- funded non-profits were providing blankets, hot food, heaters, generators and more to residents in Red Hook, Coney Island, the Rockaways and all across the region. Now, more than one month out from the storm, thanks to our supporters, Robin Hood has been able to provide over $17.6 million in grants to more than 160 different groups.

We are now moving into phase two of our recovery effort, providing for the long-term needs created by the storm including: housing, job-training, legal counseling and more. The need is great. Please contribute generously, and know that every cent of every dollar you donate will go to the best community organizations that are working to help those whose lives have been torn apart.

(Newser) – If 12 is your lucky number, today is as good as it gets. This is 12-12-12, the last repeating date of its kind any of us are likely to ever see, and the superstitious are marking it in a lot more than 12 ways, the AP reports. Huge numbers of weddings are planned around the world, including more than 100 at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. "The 'go-getting' 1 and the 'sensitive' 2 make this a very balanced number," the chapel explains.

Casinos are offering 12-themed promotions and stars including Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, and Bon Jovi are headlining the "12-12-12" Superstorm Sandy benefit concert in New York City. Lots of children will be celebrating their 12th birthdays on the auspicious date, including Kiam Moriya of Alabama—who was born at 12:12pm. The "one-two" has caused today to be nicknamed "National Soundcheck Day," Mashable notes. After today, there won't be another triple date to match until Jan. 1, 2101.

however we have two very similar tours
that celebrate 12/12/12
Please CLICK HERE for more information


 The Ancient Mayan calendar speaks of 12-12-2012 as the end of times as we know it, and the beginning of a new cycle of evolution for planet earth, humanity and the cosmos. Mayan elders say that the Ancients were informing the modern world to be ready for a giant transformation for the human race. Interestingly, traditions across the world including Buddhism, Tao, Hopi and Vedic knowledge predict a ‘Golden Age’ or ‘Satyug’ in their calendars around the same period. December 2012 is being looked upon as a significant spiritual event and a momentous shift in the collective consciousness of the planet.

 12-12-12 is a beautiful opportunity for transformation and healing on a personal and global level. We are invited to allow the supportive energies of Mother Earth to open our hearts and be ready for expansion. BMSJourneys with Diomira, faery healer and channel, as she leads you through this enchanting part of the country and guides you to gently open your heart and prepare your “field” to sow seeds of love that are in harmony with the frequency of Mother Earth. On this enchanting adventure, through softening of the heart space, we will connect with the nature spirits and faeries of this wondrous region. In doing so, we say yes to aligning our hearts to the heartbeat of the planet so that we may be joyfully lifted as the Earth lifts in her awakening. Come ready to step into the Age of Peace, Love and Brotherhood!

This is a one-time event in our lifetime and the Earth’s history as our planet enters galactic alignment with the Great central Sun. BMSJ invites all those who would like to be part of this sacred journey to the powerful region of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico where we will join the special events to take place in Chichen-Itza on 12/12/12.

Your Hostess: Diomira D’Agostino is a channel, faery crystal light healer and originator, energy healer, breathworker and intuitive. In addition to this, she holds a BA in Modern Language and Culture: Spanish and Italian. She has made traveling part of her spiritual practice and her travels include Machu Picchu, Stonehenge, Avebury, Glastonbury, Ireland, Turkey, rainforests in Costa Rica and the pyramids of Egypt. She has lived in six different countries always striving to understand other cultures. She has always had an affinity for the world of Nature and in 2008 while on a Meditation retreat, she was told by Spirit that she would begin to remember and work with crystals and the faeries, the realm of light beings that guides and assists the growth process of the planet. Shortly thereafter she began a personal journey delving into her relationship with the devic and mineral kingdoms. She began channeling information resulting in material for workshops, classes and healings. They explained that the planet is shifting and so are we. In order to make this transition smoother for all, and assist in our awakening process, we must align our frequency to that of Mother Earth. They have asked her to help facilitate the reconnection between humans and the Earth.

Day 1, December 8: To Cancun and MERIDA (D)

Tour starts in Cancun. Please be sure to be at the Cancun Airport no later than 12 noon where we all meet and transfer to Merida. Check into our hotel and some time to relax before our “Welcome to Mexico” dinner. Here we will do an opening meditation to set intention for the trip. We will receive a personal guide that will be with us for the duration of the journey. Overnight Merida

Day 2, December 9: In MERIDA – Excursion to Uxmal (B/D):

Breakfast at our hotel and then we are off to visit the ruins of Uxmal in the arid Puuc Hills where Chac the Rain God ruled supreme. Our sightseeing will include the Pyramid of the Magician, at 120 feet the easiest of the Mayan Pyramids to scale. Here we will ground down into the Earth to help us immerse into the energy of this new land. We will begin to integrate this new energy, so that we may more easily navigate it. It is here that we will lay a foundation for a new relationship with the Earth and ourselves; we begin to open ourselves up to the nature spirits of the land. Next we go to the Palace of the Masks in Kabah, with its 300 masks of Chac. Kabah has the energy of the Solar Plexus chakra. It is here that we will plant our seeds of intention. Return to Merida and dinner at our hotel.

Day 3, December 10: MERIDA-CHICHEN ITZA (B/L/D):

We visit Dzibilchaltun this morning, one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in the Americas, where the Temple of the Seven Dolls aligns to the rising of the sun at the Vernal Equinox. We then continue to Chichen Itza to inspect “El Castillo”, the Temple of Kukulcan. Here we will see an extraordinary event–the light-and-shadow illusion of the body of the serpent slithering up the north face staircase. The day ends with a Sound & Light show. Dinner at our hotel Overnight Chichen-Itza

Day 4, December 11: in CHICHEN ITZA (B/D)
“Chichen Itza, a transcendent of the great Mayan soul, a transcendent of the human soul”. You won’t believe your eyes, on this visit to Chichen Itza. It is an amazing experience. The morning tour will leave you breathless and longing for more. The Great Pyramid, The Ball Park, The Observatory, The Monk Convent, and The Water Well are just a few of the magnificent buildings and sites you tour and admire as you learn every custom, hear mystical stories and learn how the Mayas became the most powerful civilization in the area, and why we still don’t know for sure how, why or when they ceased to exist.

We will gather here to connect in brotherhood with the devic council of the region. Then we will move into a meditation that aligns us with the heart chakra of Mother Earth. In this way, we will calibrate our frequency to the Earth’s frequency to bring about harmony. After we will spend the rest of the day integrating the experience. You will be able to explore more of Chichen Itza on your own. Now you can re-visit your favorite building, take pictures, mingle with the locals and, best of all, meditate, relax and soak up the energy of this amazing and magical site before returning to the hotel to relax before dinner. Overnight Chichen-Itza

Day 5, December 12: in CHICHEN ITZA (B/D)

After Breakfast, take part in the momentous 12-12-12 ceremonies.

Today is a national holiday and Chichen-Itza is going to be buzzing. Thousands of colorfully dressed Yucatec Maya will come from far and near to celebrate this special event with the assembled crowds who will be sharing their spiritual input with all who are present. Dinner at our hotel. Overnight Chichen-Itza

Day 6, December 13: To Tulum and Cancun (B/L)

After breakfast, we depart for Tulum. In this sacred Mayan center we will see an image of the “Descending God” that represents the planet Venus. Xaman Don Beto said once about this planet: “Venus and Earth are like twin brothers. When the human beings lose the energy of their fluids in their bones, they must request Venus for help”. We also explore platforms, ruined palaces and elevated temples, and the impressive El Castillo, a temple with two columns portraying serpents. Lunch before we continue to Cancun for our overnight and dinner on our own. Overnight Cancun

Day 7, December 14: In Cancun (B/D)

This morning a choice of two activities. You can relax by the pool and beach. Or we have an Optional special event – A Swim with the Dolphins in Paradise at nearby Xel-Há, with dolphinariums designed to reproduce natural conditions, providing you with an opportunity to experience the dolphins in an ocean like habitat. Enjoy touching, seeing, hearing and feeling the wonderful world of the six resident dolphins, as they swim among the group during a prolonged period of time, allowing themselves to be petted freely. Their gift to us is that of unconditional and pure love. It is in this space of acceptance, that we can truly experience freedom, love, peace, true brotherhood. What a beautiful way to integrate and assimilate our experience that we have shared over that last few days. Return to the hotel in Cancun for lunch on our own before our evening farewell dinner. Cost for the Optional Dolphin swim is from $175 to $200 depending on how many take the tour. Overnight Cancun

Day 8, December 15: Depart Home (B) – Tour ends after breakfast

Breakfast at your leisure as you depart on your own for the Cancun airport and your flights home

It’s the century’s last sequential date. For some, it represents luck. For others, it’s a day of romance. For most of us, it’s just another Wednesday. Regardless of your beliefs, 12/12/12 comes along with some rather amusing facts and superstitions.

Ballons fly in air as newlywed couples celebrate their mass wedding in conjunction with the date 12.12.12 outside a Chinese temple in Kuala Lumpur on December 12, 2012. Some 200 couples gathered at the temple to attend a grand colourful wedding ceremony on December 12, 2012, which many in Asia marks an auspicious date on the calendar. (AFP Photo / Saeed Khan)

1. Wedding bells will be ringing in Hong Kong and Singapore, where couples are keen to tie the knot on a day which they say symbolizes love. But it’s not just Asia which will see an increase in love birds heading to the altar. A survey conducted by US-based David’s Bridal estimates that around 7,500 brides will be getting hitched in America – a 1,446 per cent increase from the less significant 12/12/11. The surge comes as no surprise, considering the sharp increases in marriages which took place on 11/11/11 and 10/10/10.

(Reuters / Daniel Munoz)

2. For some, the day will be anything but joyful. Many doomsdayers believe 12/12/12 will be the end of the world, thanks to an interpretation of the Mayan calendar. But, most of the end-of-the-world believers are convinced that the actual doomsday is on 12/21/12, when the Mayan calendar is set to end.

3. In response to “end of the world” preparations taking place across the globe, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific has declared 12/12/12 “Anti-Doomsday Day,” in celebration of rational thinking and reasoned discourse.

4. Palindrome lovers will rejoice in the fact that at 1:21:02 am, they can celebrate the second which marks a date-time combination which will be read the same both backwards and forwards. 2012-12-12 1:21:02 = 201212-1-212102.

5. Those who wish to take part in yet another time-based phenomenon but find themselves snoring away at 1:21:02 will be given a second chance. At 12:12:12 pm, the number 12 will be given a “sixer” – 12/12/12 12:12:12.

6. Number crunchers have a profound respect for the number 12, mainly because of its divisibility capabilities. After all, it can divided into halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, and twelfths. So it can only be assumed that mathematicians will find 12/12/12 to be three times more exciting than a normal “12” day.  

7. According to Chinese numerology, the number one is a yang number which is ruled by the sun and represents independence and individualism. Two is a yin number which is ruled by the moon and represents symmetry and balance. When placed together, the number 12 brings harmony to the yin and yang, balancing the feminine energy of the moon with the masculine energy of the sun. So, what we can gather is that 12/12/12 equals lots of harmony.

8. Three is generally considered a heavenly number and often represents the soul or godhead. Four is the number of earth and mankind – for example, there are four elements (earth, air, fire, and water) and four cardinal directions (north, south, east, and west). Because of this, the product of the two numbers, 12, has been said to encompass both the secular and the sacred. So 12/12/12 should mean that both sides will be represented more than usual.

9. December 12, 2012 is exactly 6 years, 6 months, 6 days from June 6, 2006, or 06/06/06.

10. From culinary cuisine to calendars, 12 has been a significant number since its creation. Just think about it – 12 months in the year, 12 hours of night and day, 12 astrological signs, 12 Olympic gods and goddesses, 12 days of Christmas, and Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Oh, and let’s not forget about eggs – which are cheaper by the dozen! With so much significance on its side, 12/12/12 was seemingly destined to be a meaningful day.

11. Kiam Moriya of Birmingham, Alabama will turn 12 at 12:12pm on 12/12/12. Since approximately 267 babies are born every minute, many other people will share the same moment – in their respective timezones, of course!

12. Students at Moscow State University have been given motivation to study after their professor posted a sign on his door stating, “The last chance to retake your History of Foreign Literature exam will be 12/12/12. If you choose not to take it, it will not only be the end of the world…but also the end of you.”
