The apocalyptic predictions are looming in the horizon, with more and more skeptics trying to unlock the mystery of the dooms day predictions, which has become more of a business of blind faith and fear. In fact, we find that more and more books, films, and other commercialization of the same are being done without any basis of understanding the real truth. Many prophets and seers of yore have given varied prognosis on the same using divination and epiphany as the tool. But for a contemporary human being, these cannot be validated without scientific rationale and thus it is imperative to dispel myths and ignorance revolving around this concept.
Mythology by itself cannot be considered as a concrete documentation of reality, but just a reference of cryptic symbolism which can be decoded in a number of ways, with varied extractions of illusionary truths by different individuals. Thus the authenticity of the predictions cannot be clarified.
When we look around, we do realize that we are living in a dangerous world and it seems death is lurking in every corner. In fact, when we look at the complete world picture and events surrounding it, we are finding fear all around. Thus the apocalyptic concept cannot be eliminated as a mere imagination also. As it could be the harsh reality that major portions of the human race could be eliminated in one cataclysmic event of enormous proportions. So there lies the intrigue surrounding this concept.
The world has all the raw materials for a fiery end, which is true. We find nuclear arsenal, carbon emissions, global warming, tsunami, earthquakes, asteroids, solar flares all coming into picture as the means for the end of this world drama. Also, when we look at all the world religions the concept of dooms day is clearly mentioned. Many civilizations have predicted this, the most famous prediction being the Mayan prediction. According to the Mayan calendar the world as we know of today is going to completely change come Dec 21, 2012. This is the day of closure as some would put it. So looking at the proximity to that date, we should all ask ourselves whether this is reality or an illusionary logic.
The concept of a world wide change might be true, but ascribing a date to the same might not be so, without evidence backing it. So rather than blindly believing random dates let us look at the larger picture.
We observe that human beings have violated nature and moral laws more and more with the passage of time, so we can infer that ultimately the gross violation of nature laws by mankind might call for a divine justice which some may term self destruction of sorts.
We need to look around, and contemplate hard on our mundane existence, how can we contribute to a positive world change is the relevant question. Now, here comes the role of spirituality and reasoning which gives us ample room for reflection. The essential contribution which each one of us can make is the spirit of harmony and peace among each other.
But, unfortunately this feeling of universal love is lacking, which is evident. Then the question arises as to why we complain about world peace when we ourselves are not in peace, as the world reflects nothing but the collective consciousness of all of us.
So let us all solemnly take a vow that we shall harbor positive and love full thoughts for one another and contribute to world peace in our own way. Having said that, let us also prepare for hard and stormy days ahead which might well come to pass…
