Taoism’s view on “End of World” or even the 2012 apocalypse
Taoism is about wisdom and wisdom tells us the “end of the world” and 2012 apocalypse is all bullsh-t. Why? Because why do you even have to care? If the world is going to end, you can’t stop it anyway. If it doesn’t end, then what do you do with all the stupid prep work you did? If it will end, no matter how you prep yourself, it is going to end anyway. That’s like saying it will rain, and you want to stop it or something? Oh yeah, some people will say “at least I can prepare for it, and if it happens, I might survive!”. Well, great, you can survive on a nice plain island with nobody on the planet then, have fun! How does Taoism explain the cycle of nature anyway? Let’s take a look!
From the ancient time, when Chinese started off with learning how to measure the day and night, time and seasons, it’s always a non-stop cycling system that they were talking about. If you look at the five elements, yin yang, tai chi, i-ching, bagwa, it is all a cycle that loop over and over again with time. It never ends, and it never stops. But why?
The ancient Chinese realize that nature is a cycling system, it just cycle over and over again every day, every month and every year. It’s true, this cycle never stops and never ends. What if a planet explode or get busted? Well, that is indeed part of the cycle too! When the planet explode, new things will be formed, and so there isn’t even an end in the big picture. Planets being born and ended are just part of nature’s cycle, it’s natural! Just like flower will be born, grown and die, then grow again. Trees, animals, even human are the same. We know this theory from the beginning already – nothing in nature will live forever. It will always dies out one day. But then, the end of one is the birth of another. Now what about the human being then? What if the planet earth die or get busted? What happen to us?
Take a look at this video!
The video above shows the cycle of life explained by me. This is actually going to be what you are all looking for! If our world here ends, our souls will all evaporates into space and be attracted to a pre-heaven state to waits for another cycle of life! This can be a new planet, a new realm or even new world. There isn’t an end to the cycle, but maybe just to another place. But well, that doesn’t matter anyway, we don’t need to worry about that part since we are not even going to go through this process in our lifetime anyway. Therefore, we don’t even need to think about that day coming to us!
The 2012 apocalypse is all a stupid rumor, even NASA had stated facts to proof it is fake and false! If you still believe in that 2012 Dec thing, you better look at what the NASA say about it!
Taoism is really like science, and it IS indeed a form of ancient science. Even if there is a polar shift, solar storms, it won’t affect Taoism’s theory and Taoism’s knowledge. It’s because we know how our ancestors found the data they recorded such as the astronomy data, the yin yang, i-ching and so on. Therefore, if they were not useful anymore because the world’s energy field changed, sure, all we need to do is to use the same formula to rebuild the whole system again, and there we will have the updated version of ancient science! How hard can it be for a genuine Taoist master like me to re-build the formulas? Not really hard!
But yes, thinking about the apocalypse and end of the world is really meaningless because it will surely not happen as stated by NASA, but also surely not going to be what we have to worry about. It’s not our responsibility to worry about it too! It’s more of the government’s job to worry about these things because they are the one to beef up on preparations and get our home safe. Such as the Sandy storm in the states awhile back, it’s the government’s problem that they did not get ready for it enough and caused too much damage. If the government had been more prepared, probably the storm won’t be that bad too. Look at Japan and Taiwan, they always have earthquakes, and their houses are all build to standard to withstand these earthquakes. I don’t even see what you can do as a citizen to help get the world more prepared for this kind of storm. Now, the end of the world thing is much greater in size, and it’s much more dangerous too. (if whatever claimed is going to happen) If you are silly enough to start your prep work today, what do you think these prep work can do at the end?
Who need to care about the “end of the world”? Maybe only the governments. They are the one who need to be responsible for the land we live on. Just having a family of two or four caring about this thing won’t do anything. Look at the Sandy storm in US awhile back, can you really do anything when that kind of storm strike? No. It’s up to the government to save your life or not. If a disaster come in the future and your home got nuked, guess who’s fault is it? It’s the government fault because they did not do a good job to prepare for the worse, or protect your homeland. We support the government, pay the taxes, and it’s their responsibility to protect us and not the other way around! If government lack the wisdom to lead the country or protect our homeland, they should be fired and have someone else get up that chair. Look at how beefy their salaries are, can’t you see they are over-paid sometimes? Just fire one or two top-level crooked govs and that money saved is already enough to feed a few cities of homeless people. It’s always not that the government cannot help, it’s they don’t want to help because most of the time they are only up for 4 years and they are gone. Why do they even care about the long term planning? You see the flaw to our political system now? Nobody who got elected even have to care about the long term stuff because they don’t even need to. All they care is a 4 years term and that’s all they need to get all the money they can. If a storm or disaster happen to end our planet, the first guy to blame should be the governments and the politicians. They are not even doing a good job to keep our homeland safe.
For Taoist, we only can do our best to make our individual life better, and that’s it. We don’t even have to care about this “end of the world” non-sense. If it comes, let it be and let those who can take care of it (government) do the job. If it doesn’t come, we just run our day as usual and live a happy life. There is no need to freak out, panic, or even get all prep up for this kind of thing. No matter how you prepare, as an individual in the big piece of land we live on, we can’t do anything to the big picture anyway. Let the one who are responsible for this kind of thing do the prep work, that’s why we pay taxes and invest in them all the time! We all have our own responsibility, and saving the world is not what we are here for. There are people who “run the world” now, such as the rich gov’s. Let them do the job they are suppose to do. We have a family to take care, we have ourselves to take care, that’s all we need to do as an ordinary man or woman. Saving the world is not our job. Oh, by the way, there is no batman or superman in the real world! So… let’s hope all the conspiracy and corruption can end one day and our world will already be much better.
At last but not least, let’s quote a nice phrase from a Taoist text. “There are no doors for fortune and disasters to come, only human welcome them into their own life by their own actions”. You see? If there is an end of the world crap that is going to happen, it should be human who dug their own grave… If that happens, who cause all the problems? Now let’s see who controls the world all year around?!
