2012: Armageddon or the Second Eden? – Gregg Braden

Ancient traditions viewed time as a never-ending dance of cycles  – great waves of energy that pulse across the universe, linking the past and the future in their journey. Modern science seems to agree.

A growing body of evidence suggests that time’s waves, and the history within them, repeat as cycles within cycles. As each new cycle begins, it carries the same conditions as the past, but with a greater intensity. It’s this fractal time that becomes the events of the universe and life.

Using a code that we’re only beginning to understand, the ancient Maya charted fractal time on a series of calendars unlike anything the world has seen since. Because they understood the cycles, they knew that the conditions of the future are also etched into the record of the past. This includes the mysterious end date of the present world-age cycle: December 21, 2012.

“Once you have glimpsed the world as it might be, it is impossible to live anymore complacent in the world as it is.

December 21, 2012 is a rare and powerful window of opportunity for our collective emergence into our greatest potential. The possibilities for such an emergence bring to mind the ancient accounts of the Garden of Eden, a place that once held all of the possibilities of our greatest joys and heartfelt desires. If we’re to believe the calendars, myths, and prophecies, it is just such a potential that awaits us following 2012. We could create a second Eden that picks up where the first one left off.

Biblical correlations do suggest, in fact, that the last time an Eden appeared upon the earth was about 5,000 years ago, at the end of the last cycle. During that time, the planet’s inhabitants had everything they needed to live in balance with the earth, enjoying vital, healthy lives. As the choices of our post-Eden ancestors planted the seed events for everything that would unfold as the cycle that followed, they set into motion the patterns that define our world today. Some, such as forgiveness and peace, serve as powerful reminders of what is possible in our lives; while others, such as betrayal and war, have become great challenges that divide us as people, families and nations.

It’s an undeniable fact that in the presence of the greatest challenges to our world, we are also changed as people. Can we recognise that the greatest threats to our familiar way of life are really nature’s “nudge” toward a new way of being? What instructions will we leave from our time to those who will go through the next world age and remember us as their ancestors?

We’ve already answered these questions in our hearts. Now is the time for us to live what we’ve chosen as we emerge from the mystery of 2012 into a new world age. The stage is set. The choice is ours. The cosmos is waiting.

  1. From Zero oint on, Gregg Braden has never failed to to create alternative perceptions. Really worth keeping up with.
