Besides, the Mayan calendar always describes all shifts as a longterm developments. It wasn't even the Mayans who "invented" the predictions or the cosmic forces that is interpreted by their calendar, they just had a pretty nice tool for recording the data.
The 2012 shift is by all means real, it is all whether you are interested in seeing it or not. It is of course an ontological issue, but I'd like to think that it is indeed really taking place (in an objective way).
I'll keep watching how it unfolds and wishes myself a life as long as possible so that I may witness, and be a part of this exciting unravelling and upgrade of humanity.
People are starting to understand that much of our most basic values and institutions are flawed.
There is really no need for me to tell you "what to see". Either you start see it yet or you don't. I can't and shouldn't tell you more than that the process is well underway. Connect the dots yourselves and defy your self-centristic perception. There is truly more than meets the eye
I have learned that very many of us are blocked out from this influence, whether they intend to (not likely) or not.
Calling all of the Mayan "prophecy" (another diluted term) a hoax is a little strong, I think.
I have a hard time thinking that the Mayans as a tribe did all this for the sake of a scam. I've been into the calendar and its deeper philosophical/spiritual nature way before the hype came to be. I'm not the least worried about having my leg pulled in that aspect

Thank you for this post OP . I resonate with what you have to share with us in this message . I believe on the same Level as yourself.
In the process of getting older, you pass through states of mental development, i.e. you mature.
Still, the insights and the clarity I am always looking for have really rushed forward in a crazy pace lately. During the latter half of 2012 up until recently, my inner self has received so much "astral" influence, so to speak (hard to find a suiting synonym for what I mean), which has helped me gain a much greater glimpse of "the big picture".
I can't possibly be the only one.
However, as a part of my expanded awareness, I have learned that very many of us are blocked out from this influence, whether they intend to (not likely) or not. The "epic awakenings" of the good ol' 2012-sagas was maybe a very optimistic outlook (when it come to the expectation of everything happening at once), but I am certain that the "awakening" is de facto in motion, and nothing can stop it really. I think everyone will come along in due time.
It also appears as if a lot of this process seems to spill over into very harmful behavior (war, crime, oppression, fear and intolerance, etc.). I absolutely do not justify any such acts- I'd like to be very clear on that, but I am not surprised that it happens that way either. Wars have been fought on this planet for ages, but the motives change. This erratic, unstable and sometimes hostile world has this destructive tendencies; people are afraid and fear breeds hate.
I am very hopeful though that this will come to pass in the times ahead. The previous era (the history of modern mankind) is in decay and many things will crumble and crash. But as they say; from the ashes, a new world rises (and this time on a completely new level).
Im a 23 year old with no high school diploma and for the most part I have made the connections from the micro and macro and taught myself simple physics, studied many religions, and philosophies just from the internet and observing the world around me. For those who want to know the mysteries of life, they will connect the dots if they put the time in!

Alvin Toffler wrote a book called Future Shock a while ago and claimed that the acceleration of technology would leave most people in the dust. Not true was it? The idea of a rising awareness was a common theme of the 60s. So why are people claiming it is happening around 50 years later?
