The End of the World or the End of Consumerism As We Know It?

We love finding new soulful quotations which pay direct respect to considering our planet. We recently came across this one:

“Humanity must shift from living on the earth to living with her” – Tiokasin Ghosthorse

Another picture of a hand holding a baby earth. Nevertheless ... the earth is still in our hands.
It’s a profound and eloquent statement which befits our current consumerist culture in the developed countries.

We are less than 9 months away from, according to the people of one of the greatest cultures in the world, the Maya, the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle.

According to the Maya December 21, 2012 marks the end of the fourth cycle known as the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar – a non-repeating calendar used by several Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican cultures, most notably the Maya.

Hollywood has cashed in on the mystery surrounding this date, with its over-the-top apocalyptic doomsday disaster movie 2012 which screened in cinemas three years ago. Other theories range from mass alien contact to galactic alignments.
