There are few topics that were born from the alternative movements have had an impact on society in general is so important. From a reflection domain of specialists of Mexico, as it was in the 90s, is now in the public domain.
So many things you say today about what should happen in 2012. So much so that today there are articles in journals dedicated to the subject of widely distributed.
Unfortunately, it is often synonymous with spreading misinformation. From the initial reflection, which was deep and enriching, sometimes become simplistic idea that conveys an old reflex of fear.
Surprised by the interest of the public on the subject, an Italian publisher told me five years ago that it was only an effect of fashion. We must now admit that it is a groundswell that is only beginning.
November 13, 2009 was released in the United States in a movie called 2012. It is a film which depicts the events in the most dramatic way imaginable …
Possible representation of Bolon Yokte, Dresden Codex, Villacorta edition, p. 28
Why December 21, 2012?
The Mayan calendar consists of years of 360 days (tun). 400 years form a baktun, that is 144,000 days. The Mayan calendar consists of 13 baktun in total. Since the end of the previous world has been fixed by the Maya to August 11, 3114 BC, the calendar cycle will resume December 21, 2012.
Entry Monument No. 6 on the 2012, the site “El Tortuguero»
This entry primordial and a half cleared, the monument no. 6 Site of El Tortuguero in Mexico, indicates that at the end of the 13th baktun, the god Bolon Yokte descend on earth. This God is often represented as the God of the conflict, the war and the lower worlds. It is therefore no destruction of what it is, but the descent of a god as in the case of other ancient civilizations, we must translate “down” with a change of attitude of humanity.
To understand, you have to put this movement in a more general context. From the birth of the great religions today, the notion of “end times” is a constant. This eschatological vision is very developed within Christianity. Just read the Gospel of Luke for: “Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all things to happen” (1). The apostles themselves were convinced that they would be witnesses of Christ’s return. John does not say, perhaps: “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you?” (2).
Then, there was the fear of the year 1000 when many people thought the world was coming to an end. This fear was triggered by the Apocalypse of St. John: “Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven which had the keys to the abyss and a great chain in his hand. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. The jet into the abyss, locked and sealed the entrance to above him, so that would not deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years pass. (…) And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison. Go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth. “(3)
In another order of ideas, let us remember the fear experienced on the eve of the year 2000. Anyway, for twenty years, this phenomenon is accelerating. There are more and more regularly hear announcements of upheaval. All these movements have in common the announcement of a deadline beyond which nothing will be as before. On the after-scandenza remains unclear, which leaves the door open to all the unconscious fears.
The end of the world?
All sorts circulating in the newspapers, on certain books and on the Internet. How not to be surprised at the number of things that can be said to be contradictory at times here and there. It is quite difficult to find in such a mass of information.
What Counts as possible and what would fall more in the imagination of unsuccessful authors? The first thing that we must not lose sight of the time when you deal with such a subject, it is common sense. This profound sense, land is a real compass to understand the situation. The real things are often simple and easy to understand.
So many major climatic upheavals, earthquakes, disasters of all kinds feel? The earth, as everything that exists, has experienced a start and then know an end. Feeding these kinds of ideas is filling a tank fears. This catastrophe, is it not the leverage that they use the most governments to blow up the wars and to limit freedom? It is towards this way of working that we have to go?
This mechanism is quite common throughout history. You have to play the famous fear of the year 1000, in which preachers passed in review the countryside preaching repentance? I am amazed by the pessimism of theories about 2012. 2000 years ago, a man repeated to those who wished to hear him: “O ye of little faith” (4). This speech did not bat an eyelid.
The descendants of the Mayans themselves say it, it’s not the end of the world, but at the end of a world. They thought patterns, old reflexes are in the process of change. It goes humanity and ourselves, changes need time to mature. A quick and sudden change would not help anyone.
The need for consistency with our inner commitment makes us bearers of hope. Carriers not only through words but also through concrete acts. Participate, accompany the change, and sometimes even ahead of him.
What change awaits us?
The stele of the Maya site of El Tortuguero reveals that the god Bolon Yokte “descend” on earth. Beyond the unpronounceable name, we know a few things about him. We find in him the characteristics of the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet who, according to tradition she would come upon the earth. She shares with Bolon Yokte the characteristics of Deity, the war and the lower worlds.
You have to understand that the “lower worlds” of the era, not the underworld that we have the vision of us today. They reflect our own inner demons.
The coming of Sekhmet on earth, it meant the unleashing of passions, the liberation of the inner forces. It is no coincidence that his name has become synonymous with the therapist during the Middle Kingdom? Her priests have mastered the arts of therapy …
Although this may seem surprising today, the war, at the Maya and the Egyptians, it was primarily a means to resolve conflicts, disagreements. As in the disease, Sekhmet was sent to earth to burst an abscess.
He finds this concept in ancient India which speaks of Kali Yuga (5) to describe the current era. Kali Yuga results with age of Kali, the black, or the times of vice. Kali is one of four aspects of the divine mother, that of destruction for reconstruction. The passions are left free to allow us to rediscover our essential nature. Moral values are called into question for the birth of the new principles based on experience rather than on the sideboard. Kali and Sekhmet are both associated with the menstrual phase in the menstrual cycle: a necessary step for an inner renewal.
This is what the Egyptians pictured with the transition from the passionate nature of Sekhmet with the head of a lion, the serenity of the sphinx without denying that his body of a lion, posed over the head of a man.
The common point is that apocalyptic narratives is the description of a state of confusion that reigns as the change approaches. Confusion that mix all kinds of information. It is not what we observe today? The news channels have multiplied: internet, television, movies, and telephone. They provide a sounding board for all those who thirst for sensationalism, or acting in fear. Disparate information and invite us to accumulate more and more to exercise our discernment. This is not to deny everything, but to recognize what makes us really grow up.
And we must return to the heart of ourselves for being able to “hear” the silent signal. What allows us to know whether a statement resonates in us or not. Christ summed this up with a parable: “thieves and robbers have come, but the sheep did not hear them. (…) The good shepherd knows his sheep, they recognize his voice. “(6)
When will this happen?
The same question was put to Christ 2,000 years ago by the apostles themselves. Here is what He says: “Look at the fig tree and all other trees. When they start to sprout you do not have to do anything but watch them to understand that summer is near. Similarly, you also, when you see that this happens, you’ll know that the kingdom of God is near. “(7)
What are sprouts? I think that the first undeniable shoots are nothing but ourselves … For 20 years, the number of people in research has increased considerably. The development of alternative medicines is unprecedented. The growth in the number of books and magazines devoted to personal development is exponential, making spiritual books within the reach of all.
In the 80s, we were few in number to read the books at that time were called “esoteric”. They were distributed by a handful of small publishers and often relegated to a small shelf in bookstores. Today, things have evolved. What also changes is that this movement, time limited to the spiritual domain, it takes a social and political dimension. Real action is in progress.
The message is clear: the signs are before our eyes, a new world is being born. Similarly, instead of interpreting the cosmic or historical upheavals as harbingers of disaster, Christ saw them on the contrary, the announcement of a future. A renewal has already triggered an irreversible and has already begun.
Behind the parable of the fig tree can be another reading. The trees are a landmark amazing. They directly follow the pulse of the heart of our humanity and give us information on the progress of the change that follows. For 25 years working in the field of subtle perception, I would say that year after year, the energetic quality of the trees evolved. I am a very accurate indicator of the change of the earth.
If you believe the old traditions, shamanic, things are followed by very close to the level of the heart of humanity, that is, the central sun in the center of the earth. One who has been called the “king of the world” (8) in Tibetan Buddhism, or “land of the Mahatma.”
How to prepare?
In an age when it is so easy to discuss ideas and concepts, it is more important than ever to connect with the earth. It is sinking roots in the heart of this that you can connect to humanity as a whole. This feeling of a force uncommon, because it becomes clear that we are no longer isolated drops alone can not do anything. Quite the contrary, we become the straw that knows to belong to the whole ocean. We become part of the evolution of humanity itself.
Akhenaten and Nefertiti with their children while they play under the gaze of God Aton
To help this socket contact, here is a simple meditation inspired by those the Egyptians in the time of Pharaoh Akhenaten (9).
It is to sit down and make contact with the ground, to hear their roots sink into the ground and get in touch with the earth and draw his vibrant presence at the center of our chest.
Slowly and smoothly, shift your consciousness at the center of the earth until you identify yourself with the center of the earth. After a while ‘impregnation of our love, the presence of the heart of the earth will merge with the presence of our hearts. Our heart will become the heart of the earth, and the heart of our land. In this moment of intense communion, information on the future of our planet will spread through you. It will not necessarily conscious, but there will be a link that gradually weave between the earth and ourselves and allow our work to be inscribed in a global scheme of humanity.
Then our conscience can do the reverse journey by returning the consciousness of the earth as a whole at the level of the heart. And thank you for the experience.
There is a mechanism in which few people pay attention. Every night, whether we like it or not, we bring to our consciousness a lot of information. Some dreams are really and give us clues to understand our role in the “great plan.” Through successive touches the language of dreams shows us the path to take and prepare us for the role we have, no matter how humble it may be.
In these times of change, I believe we have a special responsibility. If our ideals are not reflected in concrete action, such discourse can we do? Words are useless unless they are accompanied by the facts. The disease from which we suffer today as humanity is to not go all the way to our ideas. We start thinking never reach its consequences. Fear, guilt, we hold the power of that which beats in our chest.
If we started a real inner journey, the first question to ask is to know how to help the mechanism of change that is taking place. It’s a real awakening of consciences that we accompany. For this to be possible, do not forget the old saying: “the first neighbor is himself.”
Life asks of us more than ever to start changing ourselves, what we would like to change in the other. Gandhi very rightly said about: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
The role of the separatist forces that we live in today and to divide in order to teach the importance of inner coherence. Induce us to lie, to lie to ourselves to teach the power of inner truth.
This is what he said about the Prophet Muhammad to his disciple talking about the time of the end (10).
Knowing that the earth is approaching a stage of change should not make us lose the present moment. On the contrary, this gives a keener insight that we can have on reality. This allows you to ask the question of who makes us live and breathe. A presence in every moment of life that allows us to be from time to time actors and spectators.
