As fascinating as the Mayan calendar is, it is important to note that they slaughtered thousands of innocent people hoping to appease their gods and save their dying culture. Only, they turned out to be nonexistent while the remnants of their bizarre culture are being uncovered by today’s self-proclaimed know-it-all archaeologists. No one knows everything. In a world influenced by gods, there is no such thing as time. Time translates into a mere fraction of eternity. This means without tampering with free will, it is already predetermined what’s going to happen a billion trillion years from now. Even then everlasting life would not have been consumed. There’s no such thing as a day, a week, a month or a year in eternity.
…how would you remember someone in a timeless dispensation?”
Humans created time and calendars because the infinite nature of eternity was so cosmic, our feeble minds created times as milestones in our human existence on earth. Egotistic rulers who realized they could never cheat death sort for the next best thing in life and that’s to be remembered. But how would you recognize someone in a timeless dispensation? We were not meant to be appreciated we were intended to serve. When our purpose is fulfilled we pass on to the next plane of life and help our following goal; enhancing a higher purer self which ultimately becomes eligible to deserve the privilege of serving in the sacredness of divine presences. This, in order words, is basically the grand scheme within the perimeter of what really matters beyond this existence.
Every man, woman or child will answer for their actions or decisions in life. Earth does not belong to humans. We are the earth itself; hence everything came from the ground, and everything returns to it. We are spiritual beings living as earthlings temporarily placed here to serve as caretakers. Being mortal we exist at the kindness of Mother Nature. You may ask, what does a calendar have to do with Mother Nature? How religion connect with time and why relate that to the Mayan Calendar? But then you sat back and thought about it, and it hit you, the Mayan culture was massively evolved around spirituality. Their ability to foretell the future was a spiritual gift of higher knowledge.
We are the inhabitants who marveled at our own creation – skyscrapers, jet planes, ships, trains, atomic bombs, battleships, space rockets…”
Since they (the Mayans) were not God, they could only see beyond a certain point in eternity. Think about it, even they and their culture only lasted for a time. If you look closely, you will see that our group of earth inhabitants is among few who boldly defied the magnificence of paranormal unworldliness. We are the inhabitants who marveled at our own creation – skyscrapers, jet planes, ships, trains, atomic bombs, battleships, space rockets, digital gadgets, etc. This is why we disrespect ancient religious institutions to implement our own none god related institutions. Today’s man has become bold enough to think that he can save the planet when he cannot protect himself from the wrath of Mother Nature (be it under these borrowed skies or in the vast galaxies of universes.
It shouldn’t matter what mode of spirituality one adheres to; be it Christianity or Islam, Judaism or even none Abrahamic religions like Buddhism and Hinduism and/or earth worshiping nature preserves. The fact remains that all virtues lead to God. With our arrogance today, we’ve abandoned the notion of God in society. We have questioned religion because of the suffering of the innocent, failures of religious leaders, the painful loss of loved ones and/or unanswered prayers. We have forgotten that we were already empowered to heal the world, but our own selfishness led us to destroy it instead. So where our God-fearing ancestors created time and marked it by the birth of a holy prophet or messiah, we are going to stamp our time with the godless essence of our own self-marvel.
With our arrogance today, we’ve abandoned the notion of God in society.”
This is why we’ve removed religion from our courts, we’ve removed prayer from our schools, and we’ve overturned religious taboos and norms in a vain attempt to disperse some level of fairness in the world. But we cannot balance nature’s imbalance. This is why a terrorist may get the electric chair for his act of destruction while a hurricane destroys three times more rendering us helpless to the effect. The end of the Mayan calendar proves the mortality of a great civilization leaving evidence that tries as we may but our time will inevitably come to an end. What would the next dispensation of earth inhabitants discover from our remains in earth’s bowels?*
