On Wednesday morning a large part of Australia woke to a very red dawn. A huge dust storm brought huge amounts of copper-red dust across town and country alike.
It was a very biblical site. That may seem a strange thing to say on a pagan site, but this red dawn had many people thinking the end of the world was here. And with the consuming red glow and the sun a fluorescent bright blue it really was life inspiring.
What if that red dawn had sparked the end of the world? Would it have been carried out as it is stated in the Christian bible or would there be another turn of events? And what you do about it?
The coming of the end of the world has been prophesied since the dawn of man. The most recent date is infamously 2012 when the Myan calendar ceases. It will be interesting to see what will happen to say the least because the date has a lot of people quoting the date. If this date were correct, then we only have a few years left. It begs the question….what will you do with your time?
But many religions, and therefore peoples perspectives of the end of the world vary greatly. The Ancient Egyptians and the Indigenous Australians believe that time is cyclical and not linear. So how can there possibly be an end of the world?
If the end of the world did have a specific date, would we as humans be better off knowing of it’s existance because, quite frankly there isn’t a damn thing we could do about it. So what would be the point? The point as I see it would be very interesting. If we all had the same finite amount of time to live would we begin to see each other as different parts of the same whole and start to accept one another and our life on this planet?
Would peace reign?
Could we finally embrace our differences and see our similarities?
Would you live your dreams and love all while you have the chance?
