In recent years, the news has been ripe with stories, conspiracy theories and even films such as 2012 (about the end of the world as we know it). December 21, 2012 is regarded as the end-date of the Mayan calendar, leading many to believe that cataclysmic or transformative events will occur on this date. Some have gone so far as to interpret this as being a potential “doomsday” and end of mankind. But is there any truth in this so-called prediction?
According to Diana Magaloni Kerpel, Museum Director at the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City, “the world coming to an end in 2012—that’s an idea of the 21st century. It’s not about the world ending; it’s about cycles of time. They [the Maya] are really in love with those calculations and they are discovering the Universe through their calculations.”
Also, a recent discovery of 1,300 year old Mayan inscriptions refers to the start of a new era and the end of a cycle of 5,125 years.
So what is the significance of the end of this cycle?
Life coach and transformational expert Doc Barham sheds some light on this topic and explains why it is no coincidence that Awesomeness Fest 2012 is being held at the Mayan Riviera.
Aside from the stunning location, the region is home to important Mayan ruins and offers a link to a very important time for the Universe. Watch the above short video to find out the significance of December 2012 and what it has in store for you.
