I am not sure this fits under the forum description, but I put it here because it feels like the best forum for it.
United Nation members are aware 2012 is going to have something happen. I live in Crestone, CO which was developed into a spiritual community by Maurice and Hannah Strong. Maurice Strong worked on the Earth Summit for the UN. He is a Canadian billionaire and his wife is from a wealthy Dutch family. I have never seen Maurice, but I have seen Hannah and her sisters. They spend more time here in Crestone, and some of her family members live here year round. When I was working in a local restaurant, Hannah came in with some friends for lunch. I overheard them talking a lot about 2012. Most of the talk was about the procession of the equinoxes. I also heard Hannah speak at a Shumei anniversary. The Shumei Center was brought to Crestone with a grant from a foundation developed by Hannah- the Manitou Foundation. It is a Japanese spiritual group who believes in surrounding yourself with beauty and in growing your own food. They teach locals who are interested how to grow food right here in our region. Anyway, two years ago when I heard Hannah speak here, she said that shortly people would be realizing the leaders of nations are corrupt. She said that there will be a lot of chaos and disorder. Her point was we need to learn to live sustainably. She said people will need to grow their own food and provide their own energy for their homes. She said community will be more important than ever. I recently was shown this video of her husband speaking about a meeting happening in Rio in 2012. He said he believes by then the nations will adopt the Earth Charter which is something he helped write during the Earth Summit.
I have thoughts and questions about this that I will post later. Just wanted to put this up for now. The link to Maurice Strong speaking is posted below.
