Question: "Which will be the end of all the world or of humankind?"

The Great Adi Shakti Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
The Paraclete Shri Mataji
"Which will be the end of world? Again, futuristic, very futuristic. Let's not talk about the end. Just now is the beginning. When the child is born we just don't think about his death, do we?

So better be worried about the beginning of this new world that we have started and don't think of the death and all those things. Forget it for the time being."

"God has a project. He won't let his fallen creation go. Jesus Christ is the linchpin of the divine plan. The primordial promise found in the protoevangelium has its fulfillment in him. The promises of Abraham and their realization find their focus in him (Gen. 3:15). The people of the Messiah have life in the Spirit. A new age has dawned but the best is yet to be. As Charles H.H. Scobie observes, 'In keeping with the 'already-not yet' tension so characteristic of the NT, the presence of the Spirit not only is evidence that the new order has dawned, but also points forward to the final consummation of God's purposes.'" (Cole 2007, 209)

"Then I realized one thing that we cannot have the whole world to get Self-realization. This is the Last Judgment. At this time people have to decide what is the most important. They have to know themselves and understand what they are doing. Its not just having the big number that will help us but really solid Sahaja Yogis (baptized/Self-realized souls).

Then I found there were people who got cured of many diseases but most of them got lost. Some of them who were drug addicts, drinking, they gave up, smoking they gave up. I have never said a word, that you give up this or give up that. I know, when the Kundalini rises they will automatically give up and it happened and that's how people became so clean, so beautiful and started enjoying their lives.

But nobody would believe them. When they went round and talked to people,they would say they have gone mad! They could not believe how they have stopped drinking, how they are not smoking . So the identification I found of these people were mostly with the very loose type of enjoyment. They enjoyed very loose type of enjoyment, which has nothing to do with the Spirit.

Gradually of course it started working out. But still I must say that we cannot expect, in this Kaliyuga, to have billions and billions of people in Sahaja Yoga (spontaneous baptism/Self-realization), though it is my desire, it is your desire, and you want them to get their Self-realization, by which so many good things can happen."

"The best way to approach the Kundalini is to recognize that it is the power and the presence of the Goddess within us. We must first honor and revere the Kundalini as a manifestation of the Divine Mother in order to unfold its energy in a truly harmonious manner...
Kundalini is the highest manifestation of Shakti within our individual nature. It is the spiritual power of the soul, the portion of Divinity that we are in out deeper identity. Kundalini supports the body and mind during our lifetime, sustaining even our autonomic reflexes in the physical body. Kundalini holds the potential for the development of higher consciousness within us. Honouring the Kundalini as a form of the Goddess ensures our proper relationship with her and the harmonious enfoldment of all our inner energies." (Frawley 2009, 161-2)
"The parable of the four soils (Matt. 13:1-9, 18-23 par.) teaches a number of different truths... A striking feature of the parable is that when the kingdom is proclaimed, not all accept its message. There are four different kinds of soil, and only the last bears genuine fruit. All other soils fail to persevere in bearing fruit, and they represent the people who are unsaved on the day of judgment. One of the mysteries of the kingdom communicated here is that the word of the kingdom will not immediately have overwhelming success in this world. Many will reject the good news about the kingdom, but they will not be judged instantly... This parable communicates the secret of the kingdom: it is already here through the preached word, but the day of judgment is reserved for the future." (Schreiner 2008, 60)

The Maya believed that the 26,000 Great Year of precession is a spiritual gestation period for humanity

The Maya Book of Life: Understanding the Xultun Tarot
"The winter solstice in 2012 is the knot in the Loom of Time that holds all these physical and spiritual events together in the dream—the World Tree, the cross roads of the Milky Way and the ecliptic, the rebirth of the sun from the darkness, the hope of resurrection, the hope that human love and the warmth of life will prevail against the coldness of the galactic night, the hope that the universe in on our side and we are not just an accident lost amongst the stars, and the hope that life will jump and live again in a time beyond our own.

On the morning after the shortest night on December 21, 2012 an event will occur that has not happened for 26,000 years. The sun will be in the centre of the Sacred Tree, the Heart of Heaven, and First Father, our sun, will be reborn from this Cosmic Womb of the Milky Way, the Great Mother. John Major Henkins concludes:

'The 260-day tzolkin calendar is based upon the 260-day period of human embryogenesis, and, on a higher level, the 260-day tzolkin symbolises, or structures, the 26,000 year period of precession, what we might call human spiritual embryogenesis. The Maya believed that the 26,000 Great Year of precession is a spiritual gestation period for humanity, and that the 2012 alignment will catalyse the birth of what has been growing on this planet for 26,000 years. For the Maya, Father Sun's movement into union with Cosmic Mother's heart also signified the insemination, or seeding of what will come to fruition in 26,000 years.'

End of Days

Our hearts have overbrimmed with new agonies, with new lustre and silence. The mystery has grown savage, and God has grown greater. The dark powers ascend, for they have grown greater, and the entire human island quakes.—Niklos Kazantzakis

The day of December 21, 2012 will dawn just like any other day, no different from the millions of days before and the millions after. It does not matter whether the astronomical events happen on the specific day or not. It does not matter what people do on that day. Life will go on. The archetype of the rebirth of the sun, which gives light, life and joy to the People, is happening in the dream all the time. In star time, a day, a year, or a decade does not make much difference—it is the process not the event.

However, this archetypal and spiritual potential can only come into being and know itself if there is a human container to hold it, human consciousness to give it witness, human longing for its presence, human joy to celebrate it, and human grief to mourn its passing. So indeed, the day and the year does not matter. Not because anything apocalyptic will happen on that day (that's just good copy for The Skeptical Inquirer or New Age magazines) but because the event attracts human attention, interest, fear, and fascination. All of which are a landing beacon for spirit. They call down power.

The moment, which is just like any other, is like the alchemical earth that is common and is found everywhere, but it can be transformed into gold. It is a point in time and space where two worlds can touch through the actions and choices of humans. We can align ourselves with the greater rhythms of the cosmos and both spirit and matter can be changed. Our ceremonies are magnified by the fact that this major ending and beginning resonates with all other endings and beginnings past and future. This is why Maya rulers conjured and ceremonialised at the katun and baktun endings to plant seeds for a time beyond their own.

There is great hope in the Fifth Age, the fifth Movement of humanity's Book of Life, the age of Assuming Authority at the end of this Great Year. It may be the first time in history where sufficient human consciousness has accrued for the personal history of previous ages to be erased and to make passage from one Great Year to the next possible without destruction. Moreover, to make the shift, one that is a quantum leap in human evolution."

The fulfillment of the promised divine eschatological instruction
“The original meaning of the word ‘apocalypse’, derived from the Greek apokalypsis, is in fact not the cataclysmic end of the world, but an ‘unveiling’, or ‘revelation’, a means whereby one gains insight into the present.” (Kovacs, 2013, 2) An apocalypse (Greek: apokalypsis meaning “an uncovering”) is in religious contexts knowledge or revelation, a disclosure of something hidden, “a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities.” (Ehrman 2014, 59)
Shri Mataji
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011) was Christian by birth, Hindu by marriage, and Paraclete by duty.
“The Paraclete will come (15:26; 16:7, 8, 13) as Jesus has come into the world (5:43; 16:28; 18:37)... The Paraclete will take the things of Christ (the things that are mine, ek tou emou) and declare them (16:14-15). Bishop Fison describes the humility of the Spirit, 'The true Holy Spirit of God does not advertise Herself: She effaces Herself and advertises Jesus.' ...
It is by the outgoing activity of the Spirit that the divine life communicates itself in and to the creation. The Spirit is God-in-relations. The Paraclete is the divine self-expression which will be and abide with you, and be in you (14:16-17). The Spirit's work is described in terms of utterance: teach you, didasko (14:26), remind you, hypomimnesko (14:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elencho (16:8), guide into truth, hodego (16:13), speak, laleo (16:13, twice), declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15). The johannine terms describe verbal actions which intend a response in others who will receive (lambano), see (theoreo), or know (ginosko) the Spirit. Such speech-terms link the Spirit with the divine Word. The Spirit's initiatives imply God's personal engagement with humanity. The Spirit comes to be with others; the teaching Spirit implies a community of learners; forgetful persons need a prompter to remind them; one testifies expecting heed to be paid; one speaks and declares in order to be heard. The articulate Spirit is the correlative of the listening, Spirit-informed community.
The final Paraclete passage closes with a threefold repetition of the verb she will declare (anangello), 16:13-15. The Spirit will declare the things that are to come (v.13), and she will declare what is Christ's (vv. 14, 15). The things of Christ are a message that must be heralded...
The intention of the Spirit of truth is the restoration of an alienated, deceived humanity... The teaching role of the Paraclete tends to be remembered as a major emphasis of the Farewell Discourses, yet only 14:26 says She will teach you all things. (Teaching is, however, implied when 16:13-15 says that the Spirit will guide you into all truth, and will speak and declare.) Franz Mussner remarks that the word used in 14:26, didaskein, "means literally 'teach, instruct,' but in John it nearly always means to reveal.” (Stevick 2011, 292-7)

Robert Kysar, John The Meverick Gospel

“The remembrance is to relive and re-enact the Christ event, to bring about new eschatological decision in time and space.”
Daniel Rathnakara Sadananda, The Johannine Exegesis of God

“The Spirit acts in such an international situation as the revealer of 'judgment' on the powers that rule the world.”
Michael Welker, God the Spirit

The Paraclete's “Appearance means that sin, righteousness, and judgment will be revealed.”
Georg Strecker, Theology of the New Testament

“While the Spirit-Paraclete is the true broker, the brokers they rely on are impostors.”
T. G. Brown, Spirit in the writings of John

“The pneumatological activity ... of the Paraclete ... may most helpfully be considered in terms of the salvific working of the hidden Spirit.”
Michael Welker, The work of the Spirit

“The pneuma is the peculiar power by which the word becomes the words of eternal life.”
Robert Kysar, Voyages with John

“The gift of peace, therefore, is intimately associated with the gift of the Spirit-Paraclete.”
Francis J. Moloney, The Gospel of John

“This utopian hope, even when modestly expressed, links Jesus and the prophets to a much wider history of human longing.”
Harvey Cox, The Future of Faith

“Because of the presence of the Paraclete in the life of the believer, the blessings of the end-times—the eschaton—are already present.”
Robert Kysar, John

“They are going, by the Holy Spirit's power, to be part of the greatest miracle of all, bringing men to salvation.”
R. Picirilli, The Randall House Bible Commentary

“The Kingdom of God stands as a comprehensive term for all that the messianic salvation included... is something to be sought here and now (Mt. 6:33) and to be received as children receive a gift (Mk. 10:15 = Lk. 18:16-17).”
G. Ladd, A Theology of the New Testament

“But today is the day I declare that I am the one who has to save the humanity. I declare I am the one who is Adishakti, who is the Mother of all the Mothers, who is the Primordial Mother, the Shakti, the desire of God, who has incarnated on this Earth to give its meaning to itself; to this creation, to human beings and I am sure through My Love and patience and My powers I am going to achieve it.

I was the one who was born again and again. But now in my complete form and complete powers I have come on this Earth not only for salvation of human beings, not only for their emancipation, but for granting them the Kingdom of Heaven, the joy, the bliss that your Father wants to bestow upon you.”

“The main thing that one has to understand is that the time has come for you to get all that is promised in the scriptures, not only in the Bible but all all the scriptures of the world. The time has come today that you have to become a Christian, a Brahmin, a Pir, through your Kundalini awakening only. There is no other way. And that your Last Judgment is also now.”

“You see, the Holy Ghost is the Mother. When they say about the Holy Ghost, She is the Mother... Now, the principle of Mother is in every, every scripture — has to be there. Now, the Mother's character is that She is the one who is the Womb, She is the one who is the Mother Earth, and She is the one who nourishes you. She nourishes us. You know that. And this Feminine thing in every human being resides as this Kundalini.”

“It is the Mother who can awaken the Kundalini, and that the Kundalini is your own Mother. She is the Holy Ghost within you, the Adi Shakti, and She Herself achieves your transformation. By any talk, by any rationality, by anything, it cannot be done.”

“She is your pure Mother. She is the Mother who is individually with you. Forget your concepts, and forget your identifications. Please try to understand She is your Mother, waiting for ages to give you your real birth. She is the Holy Ghost within you. She has to give you your realization, and She's just waiting and waiting to do it.”

“The Kundalini is your own mother; your individual mother. And She has tape-recorded all your past and your aspirations. Everything! And She rises because She wants to give you your second birth. But She is your individual mother. You don't share Her with anybody else. Yours is a different, somebody else's is different because the tape-recording is different. We say She is the reflection of the Adi Shakti who is called as Holy Ghost in the Bible.”

Press Conference July 08 1999—London, UK

The Great Goddess is both wholly transcendent and fully immanent: beyond space and time, she is yet embodied within all existent beings; without form as pure, infinite consciousness (cit) ... She is the universal, cosmic energy known as Sakti, and the psychophysical, guiding force designated as the Kundalini (Serpent Power) resident within each individual. She is eternal, without origin or birth, yet she is born in this world in age after age, to support those who seek her assistance. Precisely to provide comfort and guidance to her devotees, she presents herself in the Devi Gita to reveal the truths leading both to worldly happiness and to the supreme spiritual goals: dwelling in her Jeweled Island and mergence into her own perfect being.” (Brown, 1998, 2)
