2012 The Movie and the Laws of Attraction 

If people were better educated about the power of individual and mass thoughts, words, and images, they would not make movies like this. I post the image here only to make a point.

It is possible that scenarios like 2012 do offer a way for people to express their subconscious fears about death in a way that is somewhat superficial and make-believe and thus avoid dealing with the reality of life and death in this world. My guru, Baba Muktananda, used to say that you should remember two things - God and death. Creating these make-believe frightening scenarios may help people remember that life in this world is temporary - even for a couple hours. So in this way, it is possible that watching movies like 2012 serves some useful purpose along those lines. However, it can also set the stage for more disasters to take place.

I remember when the Independence Day movie came out five years before the 9-11 terrorist events with all those national landmarks being blown up, and I thought, "This can't be good to put such images so vividly and emotionally into minds all around the world." When the pentagon burst into flames on 9-11, I remembered that movie.

According to ancient spiritual scriptures that form the underlying spiritual science behind contemporary spiritual "use your mind to get what you want" fads, the mind is a contracted form of the same Universal Consciousness that creates this entire universe. Therefore, what we think and visualize affects that creation to some degree - and to a greater degree when millions of people are seeing and thinking about the same things.
