I recently came across a site, Experience Festival, that has many articles surrounding the year 2012 with regards to it's spiritual symbolism in a section titled: Even More Wisdom: 2012 - Year 2012.
Kalki, or Sri Kalki Bhagavan, is the founder of Golden Age Foundation. Kalki was recently posed the question: What is the significance of the year 2012?
Here is his response: "Most of you know that the earth has got a magnetic field. As the earth's molten core is rotating; the magnetic field is created. The thought sphere of the human mind is located in the earth's magnetic field. This magnetic field has been weakening dramatically over last ten years.
Now, in physics there is a parameter called Schumann's Resonance. Using that we can determine the strength of the earth's magnetic field. While for many centuries, it was constant around 7.80 cycles per second, during the last 7-8 years, it has risen to 11 cycles per second and is continuing to increase dramatically.
If you work it out mathematically, it appears that, by the year 2012, the "Schuman's" is likely to be 13 cycles per second. When this resonance is 13 cycles per second, the earth's core would stop rotating with magnetic field gone, your mind is gone. When I say "your mind", what I mean is your "samskaras".
The pressure of the past 11.000 years of samskaras will vanish. In the Dharma, we also say, Mind is Karma. All actions start from your mind. The mind is nothing but a storehouse of samskaras or past life vasanas from which all action emanates. This is stored in the earth's magnetic field.
So in the year 2012, it will become zero for a few days. After that the core will start rotating again. This would be a fresh beginning for man or the dawn of the Golden Age.
This is the significance of the year 2012.
How do we know, it will happen? The study of fossil records has shown that, it happens roughly after 11.000 years. Man will enter into a new state of altered consciousness. As I told you already, the earth's resonance is increasing which means the earth's heart is undergoing a transformation.
The earth has got a physical body, like you have a body. It has got a consciousness as well. As the resonance is increasing the earth's heart is functioning very differently from before."
I'd like to take a poll here and I'll post all your comments, positive and negative. Let's see what people - real everyday people - have to say about this. There are many views, theories, and concepts surrounding the significance of this date - and we will all form our own opinions about it - or simply have no opinion at all. So, can you tell me. . . . . What is yours?
