The Unification Epicenter of True Lightworkers
To answer the question in your post, is it not the Federation's goal to save us: it is not.
Quite frequently they've told us that they are /not/ saviors of any kind. Neither are they gods, miracle workers or a quick fix for the problems we have created. They are here to assist and guide, but no more than that.
Lately I hear more and more doom stories about the end of the planet in 2012, or tales of ghastly doom and gloom. Quite often the question 'how can we possibly avoid all this?' is tacked onto that, and every answer under the sun from written treatise to prayer rounds has been offered. I'm not singling out anyone here, just observing what I have seen happen in recent past.
To be blunt about it: if you doubt you can do it, you cannot. This fear we are seeing now is akin to stage fright. The doubt of personal abilities personified (excuse the subeism) into fear which is starting to paralyze. To this I offer one insight: if 2012 is the end of the world through a global cataclysmic event, chances are you won't even have time to think about it happening as it does. World destroying events are by definition mercifully quick ways of perishing, so if your fear is based around suffering or hardship, fear no more. Blunt enough? Wait, there's more. If you truly believe the world is going to end by force, fire and brimstone in 2012, then there is nothing you can do about it. You have already chosen for it to be so, and hence your reality shall accommodate you in this matter.
Personally, I'm not worried. Come what may, I refuse to be either afraid or apprehensive. If we all die in 2012, then we all die, and there is nothing to worry about. If we do not, then we don't, and there is equally nothing to worry about.
Part of the human condition is that we frequently act like (are you ready for it? I've used the term before) Pan Narrans, the storytelling chimpanzee. Constructing a tale of the future including doom and death and then believing it to be inevitable because you use the same reasoning to remember getting up late on a workday will get you in trouble, is a self defeating purpose and neither confirms your vision nor does it do anything constructive to avoid it. In short, useless baggage, to be tossed overboard.
If we truly are Homo Sapiens, the thinking man (a vaunted title we give ourselves) then you must trust that no future is set in stone, and that each and every one of us has within them the capacity to come to their senses and do what needs doing when it needs doing.
Blunt yet? I am that I am.
