Via Zen Gardner we received this interesting take on the Mayan Calendar.
It won’t be long now. Just over 90 days until the end of the Mayan calendar arrives. Normally such well publicized ‘apocalyptic’ dates come and go without much serious notice from me. My friends all warned me not to buy a ten thousand dollar computer software program in 1999, but I did; just wasn’t too worried about Y2K, and was, by that time, immune to the media hype which always swarms around such events.
It’s different this time
The Mayans were all about time, hence the infamous calendar getting so much press lately. I began studying the Mayan calendar some 15 years or so ago, by reading the works of Jose Arguelles, especially a book called The Mayan Factor. Over the years Arguelles and other Mayan experts have added greatly to our understanding of this lost culture. The one thing I brought away from these studies was that all the chaos and destruction were side effects, and not the whole deal…which is all about the evolution of humankind from childhood to adolescence…not the end of mankind, but rather the end of doing all the wrong things for the wrong reasons; the end of greed! A new great Age.
The calendar speaks of the ending of one cosmic era, and the beginning of the next, and all the changes, including earth changes that will result from it. This era change has been going on for some decades now, with the last 25 years seeing most of the eye-popping stuff, a time known as ‘The Quickening’. Now the lamestream media knows one thing better than anything else, and that is how to sell fear…and the 2012 Mayan Calendar is like Christmas to them. As is their style, they will milk it for all it’s worth, and then some. What they won’t tell you however are two things. First that it isn’t at all about the end of everything…and second; the year 2012 is the year the calendar ends, not us. The year 2012 was marked as the time when all these changes that have been happening for decades would culminate, not begin.
So, the calendar is all about the evolution of mankind, a time when humanities’ spiritual vibration hits critical mass, and we are on our way to the next step, the next phase of our evolution as a species. The problem is that the psychopaths in power have spent the last 25 years or so tirelessly coming up with various nasty ways to ‘arrest’ humanities collective vibration, preventing us from reaching that threshold of evolution; and keeping us as their economic slaves on a prison planet. Chemtrails, GWEN towers, HAARP, and at least a dozen other DARPA programs all are designed for that one goal. (Then came the news that DARPA wanted to assimilate Google.)
If you only look with attention span of the average news cycle, you naturally will come to the conclusion that yes the world is about to end. (Isn’t it always?) Only when we look with new eyes, taking in the broad landscape of time, do we see all this escalating chaos in proper perspective. You’re gonna need that to deal with what all this chaos is leading up to. An entire paradigm is collapsing under the weight of its own corruption, and unfortunately most of us are more dependent than we like upon its decaying infrastructure. The trick, I suppose, if there is one ~ is thru awareness; don’t be there when the heavy stuff comes down.
The Mayans were onto something…
The Mayans were obsessed with time. They charted the heavens for countless generations to arrive at mathematical solutions as accurate as any modern technology. They knew what they were doing. Being able to accurately predict the current state of the human condition wasn’t really so difficult when you understand as they did, that such chaos, violence and upheaval always occurs at the end of every long count, like clockwork. Cycles and patterns: Creation ~ Chaos ~ Renewal.
It’s quite likely that they also knew something else that we have only recently come to realize. Five times in the last 500 million years one catastrophic event or another has wiped out the dominant species on Earth. Like a cosmic shuffling of the deck, to give other life forms a shot at the big chair. Roughly every 100 million years or so, the Earth is hit with some form of extinction level event. The most recent of which conveniently wiped out the dinosaurs, leaving the way clear for us mammals to get a foothold, then a stranglehold on this planet.
That was 65 million years ago
The first five of these great extinctions were all naturally occurring events. There is mounting evidence and concern that the sixth extinction will be man made, and thus could manifest any time after the tipping point is reached. (Does anyone have a tipping point app for their iphone?) The thing is, and this is key… “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature”, and as we learned in ‘Jurassic Park’, Nature will find a way… a way to facilitate humanities’ spiritual evolution despite all that is being done to stop it.
The accumulated radiation and fallout from that still erupting nuclear volcano is going to have its worst and longest lasting effects on our children, and their children, and their grand children many times over. There will be cancers, leukemia, and God only knows what other insidious diseases in near epidemic numbers as the years go by. There will also be birth defects, deformities, and genetic mutations. Infinite diversity with infinite complexity. Then there is the impact on the global food chain to consider after the untold millions upon millions of gallons of radioactive waste water being dumped directly into the Pacific Ocean for 18 months now.
Consider what the future of Japan will look like as the health care costs start piling up and the cost of caring for the deformed, mutated children further burdens an already crippled national economy. It is an economy which can no longer feed itself from the sea, nor export radioactive goods and products.
Now, extrapolate these effects to the rest of the world, because what melts down in Japan doesn’t stay in Japan. The computer models for the global distribution of just the airborne radiation are frightening, which is precisely why they are always scrubbed from the net, sometimes within minutes, (no doubt by DARPA and Google.) I doubt if we’re going to see a real life “Godzilla” as Fukushima radiation permeates the ecosystem we live in, but I’d give good odds that “Nature will find a way…” and somewhere, sometime, the cosmic dice are gonna hit, allowing humanities’ DNA to adapt, overcome, and evolve ~ maybe.
So here we are 90 some days out from the strong>endand the end of The great Age of Pisces ~ the time referred to by the Hindu as the Kali Yuga, translated as ‘The Age of the Demon’ and ‘The Age of Vice’.
Personally that sounds pretty good to me, the end of demons and vice at precisely the point where all the really cool things associated with the Age of Aquarius are supposed to begin. This is the show I signed up for, and I managed to get a really good seat. What is about to happen is epic in the original sense of the word. All these powerful forces of the universe showing up on the same stage at the same time. Yeah I know, its gonna get noisy, some fights will break out, and there’ll be a hell of a mess afterward; but things are going to work out alright. You may ask “How do I know that?” Well, Nostradamus said so!
