2012 and the End of the World

I’m sure you’ve heard about it.  The Mayan calendar ends in 2012, and there are signs in so many places … the world is going to end in 2012.  I get at least 3 or 4 emails per week asking if I believe the world will really end in 2012 or if there will be a spiritual awakening, or if God is coming down to select his top 100 people to take to Heaven while the rest of us go to Hell.  “Ask your guides, Erin.  Is the world going to end?”  If it is, I haven’t gotten the memo.

People ask me if the world is going to end as punishment for how we behave.  Have you been to planet Earth?  This is punishment. ;)  The world ending would be a blessing.  That would mean we got it right.  I told someone recently that if you wake up one morning and there is no more war, famine, or poverty and the world is in a state of love, peace and harmony, then you should worry about the world ending.  Experiment done.  Mission accomplished.  Until then, uh no, we’re not getting off that easy.

Do I think the world is going to end in 2012?  No.  Could it end in 2012?  Sure.  Anything’s possible.  I wouldn’t worry about it though.  If it’s going to end in some cataclysm there isn’t much you can do about it now.  If some government decides to blow up the world, oh well, back to the ether we go, hand in hand, singing Kumbaya, in perfect harmony no less.

Put your focus on today.  Put your focus on what we can do right now about what’s happening with ourselves and the rest of planet Earth.  God doesn’t save you, you save yourself.  Be at peace.  Be kind to others.  Love.  Help.  Care.  Right now.

I’ve actually had people tell me they are so excited about the world ending in 2012 because then they’ll finally be able to “quit” their job.  Uh, if you’re waiting for the world to end so you can quit your miserable job, might I suggest you quit now?  And when has the world actually ended when it was supposed to?  Isn’t this the bazillionth prophecy about when the world is going to end?  Someone is making fools of us, methinks.  And methinks some people are getting rich off the whole thing too.

If I do get a memo, I’ll let you guys know.  My guides look at me with great amusement when I ask about 2012.  They think it’s a great way to whip people into shape.  Repent now sinners! ;)  And when 2012 comes around and nothing bad happens to us?  Someone will find the lost Incan calendar that ends in 2064 and we’ll have another 52 years to get it right.  But you may as well start working on it now.
