Ancient Prophecies of the End of Civilization

Ancient traditions of the religion of the sun preserve accounts of a series of world ages that were destroyed by global catastrophes. They describe how civilization periodically goes through golden and dark ages, and declines over time to be destroyed and spiritually renewed over again. Their ancient texts and teachings state that such a catastrophe lies ahead for our civilization too.

    Thank you for researching and presenting this information in such a clear way.

    It may well be the case that karma for humanities sinful actions is being collectively administered to us in this dark time with a lot worse to come. Some of the signs of the end of times that the ancient wise men warned us about appear to be cropping up everywhere. It seems that in amongst the tragedy of it all there is opportunity to take with us learning from a uniquely dark period on this planet, if we can put in the effort to wake up to it and do what is necessary.

      I’m sometimes wondering whether we are still in a stage where humanity, by daily making bad choices, cooperatively adds karma at a faster rate to its account than it is being administered…what I mean is that perhaps it is not unlikely that the total amount of collective karma is getting heavier by day.

    Thanks again for the timely reminder and fro not pulling any punches it really hits home, and something you easily dismiss that is until it comes and its to late

    Thankyo Lara and Mark. The evidence is certainly mounting up about a depopulation event we are our own worst enemies. In some ways the process has started climate change will bring drought flood scarcity of food not to mention the right food to prolong life. and all thatis associatef with the food chain has neen disrupted. The spiritual practices of the religion of the sun can make a difference and should be usedto seek guidance .

    Thank you, Mark and Lara, for this video.
    It is interesting that this message is repeated throughout different unrelated (externally) cultures, but it is also shocked that the humanity insists to ignore it, probably considering figment of the imagination.

    It is dazzling to consider how even the tiniest remnants of these ancient apocolyptic accounts still exist. It is a marvel to be able to ‘re thread’ these remnants into a whole and to be able to provide a video on the matter.

    It makes one wonder the purpose of it all, these endless cycles within cycles, epoch after epoch. Without the spiritual teachings that this site provides, there can only be despair at the knowledge that it will be all be broken down, and recycled. Even the scientific methods which claim our physical bodies are the result of exploding stars, that there are also cycles that exist outside the sphere of this planet that we habitually destroy.

    To also have had OBEs that witness the end of this current age is very sobering indeed, as others have mentioned.

    Thank you for such a powerful video to reflect upon. It makes me want to change, in order to break the cycle!

    Thank you for the video Lara and Mark. Certainly it is in human nature to postpone anything that requires sustained effort and significant sacrifices.

    I’m just thinking out loud and wondering if negative entities get reduced in numbers and/or somehow restricted in their ability to influence people to ensure there is a golden spiritual age after a restart.

    • Vadim March 11, 2018 at 12:35 pm - Reply

      I feel that ultimately negative entities are at the “mercy of the divine”, they exercise their free will for darkness while still functioning within the laws of the Creation. They didn’t create our world, neither they preserve it, neither they can destroy it..

      They can not stop the “Golden Age” from happening, but they will certainly influence the way things unfold on the way there, on both collective and individual levels. Dark beings fight hard to get as many souls as they can to fall into the darkness, while still functioning within the context of the great master plan of God. They are as strong, as we are weak.

    Many thanks Lara for this video. That’s very sobering indeed. There is a sense that time is running out, and I find it scary, and it can bring up a lot of anxiety. On the other hand, there seems to be a sense of hope in it all. I just pray that we are given enough time and guidance to make the very best of opportunities given.

    Thank you very much. This is such a powerful video – so many things to reflect on.

    I really enjoyed the quotes at the end of the video. There is so much wisdom there but also similarities between the people who wrote them.
    What is startling is the signs they describe as that of the end are clearly already with us.

    Thank you for this reminder of what we need to focus on

    This is an amazing video – the signs are all around us that things are rapidly deteriorating.

    It’s a timely message that we need to make the most of the time that we have.

    Thanks for this great video.

    Hey Lara,

    Great presentation and video. I have watched it three times in the last 10 days and I discover something new every time I watch it.
    I love the stuff on Plato.

    My understanding is that we al have to increase our efforts in regards to the work as time is running short.

    Many Thanks

    Thank you Lara and Mark all those who assisted in creating this video. It’s a dire reality that is easy to forget but as time goes on it’s a certainty closer to fulfillment. Being reminded of what is at stake and the context of fleeting time is a powerful wake up call and motivation to do more to help myself and others.

    A strong message with an equally strong warning. Time for a ‘reality check’. Humanity does seem to be on a path of destruction, yet again. This may be part of the ‘cycle of life’ as explained in this video, but there also seems to be a greater purpose built into this life cycle, which this humanity has forgotten or is ignoring. Thank you for this timely reminder Lara and Mark.

    I think it’s interesting how the current flow of society and those in power making decisions and setting trends that impact the planet and the future of our civilization are all very rapidly accelerating in the wrong direction but that the larger outcome of it all doesn’t seem a part of the vision for the future — I mean that for example those seeking power at the expense of dragging others down maybe don’t see / believe that putting an end to that type of “power” is so simple and that this has already happened in our planet’s past. Likewise, on a personal level and leaving “powers” and people with ill intentions out of the equation, it’s so easy to go off track unknowingly and live life as though it’s a given everything will always be as it is (or somehow better). Very powerful message in the video to consider.

    • Michael February 9, 2018 at 8:30 am - Reply

      Yes, that’s a very good point Jenny. The power of those in authority is actually limited, as there is a much greater power, which can affect everyone in the world, regardless of their status.

    Thanks very much Mark, Lara and everyone involved in producing this extraordinary video, which contains a vital message for humanity. I sincerely hope that as many of us as possible will gain the strength to put its message of spiritual change into practice, while there is still time to do so.

    Thankyou for the video Lara, and thanks to Mark to for inspiring the research and sharing his experiences on it. It really puts things into perspective. If this were to happen next year, or tomorrow I don’t think I’d be happy with myself and the current efforts I’m making to try and become a more spiritual person. A good reminder to not waste any time like Geraldine mentioned.

    • Slawek February 11, 2018 at 3:21 am - Reply

      Totally agree with you David. It can be quite an eye opener to honestly look at one’s level of being and see if we managed to make any meaningful improvement in this life, or have we gotten worse…

    Thanks Mark and Lara for sharing this additional information, I got a lot out of the video .

    The evidence of the end of our civilisation is certainly a topic which need of serious attention from all of us. Hopefully we can take it more seriously and make the necessary steps to make a difference.

    Thank you Lara and Mark for the guidance found within this very serious message – I hope to be able to make true use of it and not waste the precious time that I am given. Sending you much love and strength.

    Thank you so much dear Mark and Lara for kindly sharing with us your spiritual insight and research.

    I don’t even know now what to make out of all this information… but it definitely resonates with me, as I saw references to the end of the world in my dream experiences, sacred texts and ancient sacred sites.

    Some of the most amazing megalithic sites that I ever saw, were in Peru, and in some places I saw the signs of a terrible catastrophic destruction…

    You just can not imagine primitive humans (or even our civilization) being able to move or even have a motivation to move those enormous stones perfectly put together in harmony with the environment… and some of those ancient constructions looked destroyed by some enormous force, as there was some apocalyptic flood moving those stones, or advanced weapons were used to throw them around.

    I wonder now how to put together all this information to make the best use of it in our inner work and helping the humanity.
