Mayan Mystery – Welcome 2012!

By

Every End is a New Beginning – Proverbs

And so another year ends and a New one begins. Welcome 2012! 

Everything that was a mystery at the start of the year is now ancient history and the best as always, is yet to come.

We can look back at a year that was loaded with new opportunities for growth, new friendships made, unique challenges, most of which were overcome with great determination, experiences of new emotions, places, accomplishments.

Just look at all we are hearing about the Mystery of the Mayan Calendar and the escalating predictions of the end of the world as we know it on December 21st, 2012.

The doomsday theories abound.  Is there any truth in this? But does it mean the end of the world or is it just a routine end of one calendar cycle and the beginning of a new one? Only Time will tell.

For those who have not been watching television , reading the news or listening to the radio could be disturbing as the media are rife with doomsday stories about the predictions (and interpretations) of the Mayan calendar.

But are these predictions just more grist for the sensational mills of tabloid journalism or is there something we do not know, that the ancient Mayans did?

So here are some facts to consider:

1. What is a Calendar?

 A calendar is an agreement of a society or a civilization; in fact it is the pinpoint centre of a civilization.

The absolute dead centre of our civilization is called the Gregorian calendar. Nobody even questions it. It was the physical measurement of earth around sun.The measurement of physical objects moving through space.

One year ends and another begins. With every ending comes a new beginning! Nothing new about that!

 2. The  Mayan Calendar.

The Maya have two calendars at the very centre of this equation. The Tzolk’in calendar is 260 days long. This was celebrated every day by every person. Then we have the Tun calendar- 360 days long. And this calendar is known as the divine calendar. Every 52 revolutions of this calendar, the cogs of the wheels of these two calendars  match back up. Every 52 Tun, all debts are absolved. and they started all over again.

 Our calendar only has to do with our speck of mud going around this little speck of light we call the sun, in a  sea of a 100 billion stars, in a galaxy which is one of a  100 billion galaxies in the universe.

So just how big is our calendar? And what were the Mayans timing ?

3. Nine different levels

 The Mayan calendar is in nine different levels. Thats why all those pyramids in Mexico have nine levels.

 Each one of these levels is subdivided into thirteen individual sections called baktuns.  There are seven periods of light and there are six periods of dark. Seven days and six nights for each level of creation. 

Each day is a period of increase in consciousness. And each night is a period of applying that consciousness.

The very first cycle started 16.4 billion years ago. Its called the cellular cycle. 16.4 billion years is divided into 13 different sections, each  1.26 billion years long.

The very next cycle was called the mammalian cycle  started 820 million years ago and it started going though these same 13 steps. Each period was only 63. 4 million years each.

Every subsequent cycle has been shorter than the one that went before. And now we are approaching the end of the ninth cycle heading towards a global consciousness that will raise our awareness to the fact that we are indeed one.

Its not a coincidence. We’re on a schedule.

 4.  The Mystery of the Mayan Calendar

Now comes the interesting part as many separate cultures and wisdom converge on one central date. December 21st, 2012. The winter solstice of this year. Something MAJOR seems poised to happen.

The interlocking time scales of lunar, solar and planetary cycles of the Mayan Calendar could accurately predit a solar eclipe 1000s of years into the future

It is also prophetic – in the 8th century A.D.  it had predicted that  white skinned bearded guards would arrive from across the sea on March 5th, 1519. On that precise date Cortez and his conquistadors arrived in the New World. was it co-incidence? Or was the calendar prophetically accurate?

On the winter solstice there wll be a cosmic rift in the black hole and its only in the last 5 years that astronomers have discoverd that there is an enormous black hole in the centre of the milky way

They concur that on Dec 21st the earth will be in exact alignment with the sun and the centre of the milky way galaxy – a galactic event that only takes place once every 25,800 years

No one knows what effect this extraordinary alignment will have on the earth but the Mayans believed it would be dire

Geophysicists have a theory that is in alignment with the Mayan calendar that the entire mantle of the earth would shift in a matter of days , perhaps hours, changing the position of the north and south pole, causing world wide disaster, earthquakes would rock every continent, massive tsunamis would inundate coastal cities, it would be the ultimate planetary catastrophe.

As unlikely as this theory is, it is backed by science.  Albert Einstein first suggested it in 1955 and a new study from Princeton university has revealed that the poles have shifted before.

The north pole rested in the middle of the pacific 800, million years ago placing Alaska at the equator

Even if it took place slowly it would cause global climate change and a shifting of the seas. If it took place rapidly it would mean planetwide disaster and mass extinction of species.

Through the work of the late Terence MacKenna, who mapped the 64 hexagrams of  china’s oldest text the i ching or book of changes, against a timeline of all recorded history, a strange thing was observed by someone who was not even aware of  the Mayan calendar. The timeline appears to stops at the identical date. December 21st, 2012.

Did the i ching from ancient China and the mayan calendar from medieal Mexico independently arrive at the same date for doomsday? What we have is a consistency in prophecy that both seem to imply that something is going to happen in the 21st century.

5.  Fact or Fiction?

So what does all this mean? Is it a herald of  something major that is about to happen? Or are we putting too much credence in the past. Should we take heed of ancient warnings? Or should we focus instead on expanding our own awareness and raising our consciousness for global unity?

If we refer to our own calendar…we consider that Dec 31st ends one year and heralds the start of a New year. It doesnt mean that time stops on this day. It simply means it is the start of the new calendar.

There are still Mayans living today and they are not preparing for an apocalypse. Even if the ancients were alive today they would just have prepared a celebration to mark the completion of such a large calendar cycle

There are some Mayan scholars who believe that one cycle was 20 baktuns instead of  13  which would mean it would take many more centuries instead to complete one cycle.

According to living Mayan Elders it is the time for the  return o f the ancestors and men of wisdom. They say, ” Let the morning come, let the dawn come, I am here giving you the message not to be afraid , but to take this message and spread it to the world”.

Start valuing every moment of this year as if it might be your last. It might be later than you think!

But it is certainly a time for New Beginnings! Happy New Year! Make it your best one!
