2012 – “THE END OF THE WORLD”??

In the Beginning, there were seven days of Creation. So at the End of the tale, there must be seven reciprocal days of Destruction.
“Seven” is the number that symbolizes complete accomplishment. The Creation of the world was accomplished in seven days. The soul completed its descent from “Abraham” to “Joseph” and into the bondage of illusion, through seven levels. Under the guidance of Moses and Joshua, the soul returns to the “Promised Land” by re-ascending these same seven levels. So when the story gets to Jericho (a symbolic place, which, by the way – speaking literally, historically and archaeologically – had ceased to exist long before the Israelites got there around 1200 BCE), God will completely destroy His Creation in seven days.
But this allegory of Destruction is, again, only a symbol – a symbol that really only relates to the personal‘world’ that is being left behind by one enlightened soul. In other words, if we spiritually succeed in reuniting with the Divine, our experience of this world of suffering and illusion ‘disappears’ and everything merges into the One.
This is the esoteric (and only actual) meaning of the oft-awaited ‘End of the World’.  –  THE DOOR IS OPEN, p. 138
