Pt 4 - a new humanity: evolution towards 2012 and beyond - a tantric path to global transformation; awakening to greater reality; the great turning as compass and lens;
The book is very readable and extremely interesting in the breadth of information covered. 2012 is not just about a calendar - there is so much more - it makes us question our conceptions of time itself and how arbitrary everything material is. But the technology is so fantastic - calibrated to pretty great accuracies and it's hard to be overly sceptical - how can we when we're mere grains in a universe that's within multiple universes that is all so intricately infinite.
There has definitely been a lot of peoples who existed before us who knew a lot more than us and they keep leaving clues and information everywhere for us to discover and get our thick heads round . . .
It's not far off and I'd rather be ready than not!
Like they say, it's up to each of us to make up our own minds - but I can't help but feel that there's a lot to it . . . mostly the science is very convincing.
Mankind really does need to wake up - It cannot happen fast enough.
2012 is getting VERY close - there is a REAL sense of URGENCY that we ALL need to act to ensure our home planet is not destroyed. So much of the natural resources are WASTED. [There is a limit to how much abuse our planet can take before it packs in and stuff the humans and leave us to our own sorry demise!]
This book is highly recommended which looks at 2012 from many angles - spiritual, economical, ecological and Scientific. It's fascinating but moreover, it IS VERY IMPORTANT that we all wake up and take responsibility for what goes on around us all the time. 21 Dec 2012 seems to be the end date of a calendar but does not seem to mean the end of the world but a new era - but what could it mean? This book explores the possible answers.
Hope that helps - thanks for reading this far.
It sheds light on all the hyperbole and nonsense that has cropped up around the subject on the internet and elsewhere.
More than that, this book has given me hope.
Yes, the state of the world is pretty critical right now. But maybe, just maybe, the forces of change are powerful enough to transform humanity.
In this book we read about the many very positive things that are going on in the world right now that could indeed lead to a new and golden age for the world.
Overall a thoughtful, well put together book which is balanced in its treatment of all the people who gave their time and effort to this book. I think all views and levels of education are catered for so that everyone will be able to take out of the book something which will be of use. Highly recommended.
1) the evolution of human consciousness
2) the influence that energy has on physical manifestation
and most of all how we can use this wisdom, to change the world for the better in the short window of opportunity we are currently in.
not only a knowledgeable book but one that will influence the way you conduct your self through life, and allow you to understand the real reality.
