Mayan Calendar-Disaster or New Life??

As you know, everyone's talking about the Mayan Calendar ever since the movie 2012 been released. What you can see, the picture beside its the actual Mayan Calendar by the MesoAmericans of the Pre-Columbian times.

Each picture on the Calendar has its own meaning. For example, The Face in the middle is called Tonatiuh's face which means, the face of the Sun. The Lord of Heaven. Thats not all, when i checked on the net, this is what I got for the defination of its whole face ' The Lord of Heaven, around which took place all daily or periodic Phenomena. The crown, nose pendant, earrings & necklace falls under luxy and the ornaments proper for the deity. Wherelse the hair represents the golden apprearance of the star. The wrinkles on the face is to show how matured is he and the tongue, like an obsidian knife stuck outward indicates the need of being fed blood and human hearts. According to the Mayan calendar, there are only 260 days in a year.

But what the question runs in all our minds is, whether or not the world ends in 2012 as per the movie said.... Is the disasters takes place as such before we all are long gone??

There are 5 elements, the fire, wind, water, metal & earth. World ends with disasters taken place by this elements but how far is this true,we ain't so sure.... But what we know is 'Precaution is better than Cure' So, be careful with whats happening around you. Everyday, there's a disaster happening around us. Mexico has volcano eruption(Fire), Indonesia's on fire(Fire), Philippines in hit of Thyphoon(Water & Wind), Australia suffering from climate change(Wind), China with Religion War Between the Xinjiang-Urumqi & China-Chinese(Water-related to blood & Earth).... What more could happen? Families are killing each other, animals & humans are dying of sickness.... Are all this the signs of world ending or maybe its the end for a New Beginning of a New Era like the Mayans said?

At right is the ancient Mayan Pyramid Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico. The Pyramid of Kukulkan at Chichén Itzá, constructed circa 1050 was built during the late Mayan period, when Toltecs from Tula became politically powerful. The pyramid was used as a calendar: four stairways, each with 91 steps and a platform at the top, making a total of 365, equivalent to the number of days in a calendar year. Because the two calendars were based on 260 days and 365 days respectively, the whole cycle would repeat itself every 52 Haab' years exactly. This period was known as a Calendar Round. The end of the Calendar Round was a period of unrest and bad luck among the Mayans, as they waited in expectation to see if the gods would grant them another cycle of 52 years. Haab is the name for the Maya Calendric System.

Hope this awares everyone to look into what lies ahead of us to educate themself for self-improving & to be prepared.... But i know i'm not prepared yet!!! Hehehehehe
