Orin on December 19, 2012 at 8:03 am Hahahahahahahaha!!! Well keeping the jokes going. The Mayans predicted the end of the world? They didn’t see the Spanish coming! Marianne on December 19, 2012 at 8:30 am The end of the world as they knew it, possibly. What does it mean to say the end of the world, anyways? Too much gets lost in translation, doesn’t it, such as the ‘translation’ from what the teacher says to what the student hears. Do we really know what the Mayans said or has it been too filtered through so many translations of culture and mind and conditioning? Personally, I don’t know. brahmarshi on December 19, 2012 at 9:10 am Yes, I do have tremendous respect for the ancient Mayan wisdom. However, I do also feel certain that the quality of the interpretations of any great teaching are determined by the nature of the interpreter. Meghan on December 19, 2012 at 12:01 pm Hahaha I love this. Nina on December 19, 2012 at 6:06 pm Good reminder to turn the heat off on Thursday night to reduce the fuel bill. Adrienne on December 19, 2012 at 7:02 pm I am giggling. THAT is a good one. Most people have heard of the “end of the world” version of the Mayan calendar. I have a friend who is at the opposite end of the dooms day version. He believes that there is a transition into the age of enlightenment that locks in on Dec 21, 2012. But he believes it will be instant. He believes the there will be in instantaneous change where there will be no more pain, illness, hunger, war, strife or anger in the hearts of men. There will be no more need for lawyers, doctors or fireman and that life will be heaven on earth. Oh I wish it was that easy. That’s not the way the laws of nature work though. When there are extremes, there is an innate imbalance. That’s when thins get unpleasant and dicey. So – one step at a time, one meditation at a time, the hare wins the race. God willing, Friday will be another beautiful winter day, and the transition will continue as it has. Marty on December 20, 2012 at 4:30 am We’re due for -26/-29 temps….I’ve been getting emails with similar weather charts like this the past 2 weeks, obviously somebody is having fun. Easan on December 23, 2012 at 12:01 pm Friday has come and gone —that was the most boring apocalypse ever !
