2012 - The Facts, Just the Facts
Based upon what is called the 13-Baktun cycle (a standard
cyclic era length for the Mayans), it is implied
that December 21, 2012 will be the end of one cycle and the beginning of
another. The time we are nearing is the
13 Baktun and 13 Ahau - the return of the men of wisdom according to some
It is the current belief
that the present 13 Baktun cycle began August 11, 3114.B.C. and ends on
December 21, 2012; this is called the Long Count calendar. It is the ending of a solar period of 5,200
years (or approximately 5,125.36 years).
On that date the December solstice sun aligns with the
galactic equator (that dark rift you can see in the Milky Way); it takes place
within the bulge of the Milky Way seen with the naked eye.
The Mayans viewed the night sky with their naked eye and
created their calendars based upon the various cycles they observed there. Mayan civilization believed that galactic alignments within cycles were
involved in human beings having a potential awakening experience - waking up.
The Mayans did not
believe that any beginning or ending of a cycle portended an apocalypse.
All cycle endings are construed as indicative of
transformation, renewal - humanity's opportunity to open its collective eyes. Challenges
and chaos? There is always chaos
before there is a new transition into a new order, a new paradigm, a new way of
The Mayans embraced many stories explaining creation, (Popol
Vuh/Creation Myth) evolution and the part humanity was playing in their "divine ballgame". Within their teachings, they explained that
the self-serving ego personality would eventually begin to ruin planet earth
due to a disconnection between humanity's consciousness and its Source.
The Mayan theories expressed an understanding of the effect
human thought and action can have on the planet. What
does this mean to humanity right now?
Human beings live within an individualized consciousness
sometimes called the ego personality emanating from a Source Reality. The human mind is unable to directly
experience its own existence without a shift in consciousness allowing the knower to step outside of the known and
become an observer of both knower and known.
1. Few human beings allow this
transformative state to take place yet if one observes the changes within the
environment of humanity it is easy to see that cyclic changes occur within the
2. Few human beings allow acceptance of
transformative states due to the ego personality's desire to remain as the
sovereign authority controlling its world.
3. Few human beings are able to see the
bigger picture remaining stuck in and reliant upon the smaller self's viewpoint
of the one material life he or she is experiencing.
The one Source
Reality encompasses the material and the non-material unfolding within
subjective and supposedly objective realms.
Denial of either the material or the non-material sets the stage for
humanity's transformation into the observer of both for the species is an emanation
of Source Reality. Within humanity's
denial of oneness with all life, the ego personalities grouped into
conglomerates of control are destroying the planet.
Within the Mayan's stories, they tell of the individual's
ego drive to wield power no matter how deceiving the appearance. Eventually, in their cosmology, the ego's soul is reborn after being
realigned within the Heart of Divinity
The Mayan's cosmology
has the ability to offer a new glimpse into the true mystery of life - "as
above, so below". This opens
the door to union of heart, mind and body and a restoration of the bigger
picture within human consciousness. It
is what humanity is yearning for in its deepest core - even the power brokers
who only pay attention to how much they can control, how much power they can
achieve and how much wealth they can amass.
Their striving is their yearning for the restoration of their heart,
mind and body in conscious awareness of their Source emanation.
The outcome of the
upcoming alignment is neither frightening nor traumatic. It is the revolution of the heavens in their
cycles and has been given a day and name by a culture we call Maya.
Embrace this new
awakening that you are creating.
If the Mayan calendar
did not exist, the awareness of humanity would still be given this remarkable
