Gerald Benedict uncovers the real meaning behind the Mayan Prophecies for 2012, and rather than being a disastrous cataclysmic change he reveals that it is the dawn of a new age - an evolutionary development away from materialism and cynicism towards a more spiritual and ethical stance, and a true understanding of our place in the universe
