2012, and the Mayan Calendar


I trust that Life finds you Well.

Lol, I seem to have found myself speaking with many friends and acquaintances concerning 2012 and the Mayan Prophecies during recent months.
It sure seems to be an area which is causing a great deal of interest in the world at this time!
I shall share for you here an excerpt of my reply to my friend, from the aforementioned conversation:

I hope that it assists you in some way with your questions.

If it is part of your path (which you chose before agreeing to come into this lifetime), these words will find 'resonance' with you. If not, you can just dismiss them as the senile ramblings of a strange old man, and forget all about it. :)

Ok, 2012.
Or, more accurately, (Mayan Long-Count Notation).

The End...and The Beginning.

Firstly, let's talk about "Time".

The "Gregorian" method of tracking, is not only wildly inaccurate,
it is a complete fabrication!

I want to speak with you, about Natural Time.

As I'm sure you're aware, the true nature of time, is not linear....
but cyclical.

The Universe revolves around Cyclical "Time"
and at present, we are nearing the End of a 26,000 year Cosmic-Life-Cycle.

When this Life-Cycle Ends,
"All things will pass away....
and All things will be made new".

This grand cycle of evolution will culminate, with winter solstice, December 21, 2012 AD.

And, we're only seven years away, at the time of writing (2005).

This time we are now in has been called "The Time of Trials" "Judgment Day," "The Time of Great Purification,"....
"The End of this Creation," "The Quickening," "The End of Time as We Know It," "The Shift of the Ages," and "The Great Tribulation", amongst other things.

It is foretold that the completion of the Precession, brings the Regeneration of Earth, offering Awakening to all open, willing hearts.

Many peoples spoke of these last days of the Great Cycle, including the Maya, Hopi, Egyptians, Kabbalists, Essenes, Qero elders of Peru, Aborigines, and the Navajo, Cherokee, and Apache Native Tribes.

All of these Ancient and Insightful Civilizations, most of whom enjoyed contact with their Brothers and Sisters "Off World", are not "wrong" in their understanding.
It is the Gregorian method, which is "Wrong". Not to mention extremely misleading to humanity!

The Maya use an astrological cycle we call the "Precession of the equinoxes".
This is a 26,000 year cycle in which Earth transits through each of the 12 signs of the zodiac for about 2,152 years each.
Each of these astrological ages represents one month of the grand, Cosmic Year.
The Mayans, Egyptians, Tibetans, Sumerians, Cherokees, and Hopi, All refer to this same 26,000 year cycle in their belief systems and each have developed calendars based on this great cycle.

Lol, yet, the cycle widens. :)

This "Mayan" cycle also corresponds to a 26,000 year relationship of the Sun orbiting Alcyone, the central star of our 7 Sisters Pleiades constellation.

The Mayans hold, that the End of this Cycle, heralds literally, a New World Age, and a New Creation.
Collectively, Humanity right now, is growing, and developing, into the Beings we have long been encoded to be.
As with any labor, it is not the mother, or the baby, who is in charge...
it is the Primal process of Birth itself unfolding it's own destiny.

So, December 21, 2012 AD.....
is not the day where all of the sudden the lights go out, and everything will suddenly change.....
rather, we are NOW in the process of this transition......
from one World Age to the next.
The changes are underway and will continue steadily accelerating as we head towards the culminating date.

The 26,000 year cycle is composed of 5 lesser cycles.....
each of which are 5,125 years in duration.
Each of these 5 cycles is considered its own World Age or Creation Cycle.

Our present great cycle (3113 B.C. - 2012 A.D.)
is called the Age of the Fifth Sun.

This fifth age is the synthesis of the previous four.
It is known as "Caban" in the Mayan language and "Ollin" in Aztec, and it has has several meanings.....
including: movement, shift, evolution, earthquake, navigation, synchronicity, clue tracking, and turtle (see Mayan Calendar for reference).
In the Mayan language, the word "ol" of ollin means consciousness.

The initial date that Earth entered the Fifth World, was August 13, 3113 BC, written in Mayan long count notation as

To help you understand this Notation:

13=Baktuns, 0=Katuns, the 2nd 0=Tuns, 3rd 0=Uinals, 4th 0=Kin

These are the Mayan words for periods of time:

Day = Kin (pronounced: keen)
Month of 20 days/Kin = Uinal (wee nal)
Year of 360 days/Kin = Tun (toon)
20 Tuns/years = K'atun (k'ah toon)
20 K'atuns = Baktun (bock toon)
a Baktun is 5,125 years

The Mayan Calendar has Five days at the end of the 360 day year, known as "Five Days Out of Time". Although in modern translations from the current Mayan Elders, the Lunar Cycle has been incorporated into their calculations, and they have updated to include the 13 Moon Year.

13 moons of 28 days....
equals a year of 364 days, and One Day Out of Time.
A calendar that I myself operate by.

It has none of the odd numbers of days of the Gregorian Fake.
30 days here, 31 there, 28 here, or 29 instead sometimes (lol!), and you don't need to go: "30 days has September"etc, in order to remember!
With the 13 moon calendar, you always know where you are.

Every day from that point is reckoned by the number of days passed since the event of this cosmic beginning point. :)

Within the 5,125 year cycle lies 13 smaller cycles, known as the "13 Baktun Count," or the "long count."

Each baktun cycle lasts for 394 years, or 144,000 days.

Each baktun was its own Historical Age, within the Great Creation Cycle, with a specific destiny for the evolution of those who incarnated in each baktun.

For example, almost all of the Mayan inscriptions were placed during Baktun 9 (435-830 AD).

This era is known as the time of the Classic Maya.

After this point, around 830 A.D., the great Mayan centers were abandoned and their thriving culture "mysteriously" disappeared.

Well, only "Mysteriously" if you don't happen to know the story. ;)

The Mayans were well aware of coming earth changes in their own time and left earth with their sister race who had made their home on the planet Erra, in the Pleiades constellation. This race, who are indeed very 'human' in appearance, are far advanced than we (modern earthbound society) currently understand, in terms of technology. Well, the government know what they have, but then, they don't even admit publicly that there even are other races known to them 'off planet', lol, let alone in active communication even at this point in time.

But, the Mayans made sure to leave behind enough evidence of their civilization for their ancestors and fellow Beings of the Ages to follow them, as a means of guidance, to point the way to what is to come. :)

Planet Earth and her inhabitants....
are currently traveling through the 13th baktun cycle....
the final period of 1618-2012 AD.

This cycle is known both as "the triumph of materialism", and "the transformation of matter."

The Maya predicted this final baktun would be a time of great forgetting, in which we drift very far from our sense of Oneness with Nature, and experience a kind of collective amnesia.

Like a memory virus in which we begin to believe the limited reality of appearances and become de-sensitized to the Spiritual essence which fuels this world.

We entered this baktun cycle right after establishing the world wide coordination of Pope Gregory 13th's 12 month calendar system (1582), as well as the introduction of 12 hour 60-minute mechanical clock (1600).

These are neither small, nor irrelevant matters my friend.

According to Valum Votan, (a Mayan Prophet),
these 2 instruments are what manifested humanity's "error in time", which is the following of artificial instruments of time that served to separate Humanity from the rest of nature; operating by our own false timing frequency, to the ultimate detriment of our natural world.

The Gregorian calendar is not based on logic, science, or nature.
It denies and covers up the True annual human biological cycle, which is conserved in the body of a woman.

It is the current standard world time model, because of the forceful implementation of this system upon conquered (indigenous) peoples, who lost their land, as well as their freedom and right to self determination.

The presence of the clock gave birth to the notion that time lies outside our bodies; that it can be tracked by a machine,
and that we can sit and watch it "fly" by...tick-tock...tick-tock....

as if it is something linear, containable, and separate, from the organic, flowing process of life!

Our adherence to the clock for our sense of time and timing, is one of the greatest obstacles to allowing the full telepathic abilities of Human Beings to truly Blossom!
In simple terms, we're operating on the wrong "wavelength".

And so, here we are.... :)
currently living the last 7 years of both a 5,125 year Creation Cycle....
and the last 7 years of a 26,000 Grand Cycle, the Precession of the Equinoxes!

The coming end date of December 21, 2012.... in the Mayan long count notation, is written just like the beginning date! ;)

On, the December solstice sun will be found in the band of the Milky Way, directly in the position of the "Dark Rift" in the Galaxy, forming an alignment between the Galactic Plane and the Solstice Meridian!

We are about to enter into a Literal Alignment of the Cosmic, Galactic, Solar, and Lunar Planes!!!

This is an event that has slowly converged, over a period of thousands of years...
and is caused by the precession of the equinoxes.
Kind of like a "turning" of the Universal Gears.

On the winter solstice of 2012....
the noonday Sun exactly conjuncts the crossing point of the Sun's Ecliptic with the Galactic Plane, while also, aligning precisely, to the exact center of the Galaxy!

The Synchronic Order of Natural Time, governs the unfolding of our lives.

Time's cycles are found within our bodies....
and within Nature's daily rhythms and cyclic seasons.

We have forgotten this, thinking that time is the clock, or the relentless progression of work weeks and weekends.

Time, is the ever-changing, unfolding Now, as it synchronistically coordinates the Whole living Universe! :)

I trust that in someway goes toward answering your questions, of "why 2012" my friend.

Take it easy.

My Love and Peace Be with you.

Dr. Ekahau (The Council of Elders)

Where it all begins....

Warm greetings to you, and welcome, to my humble online abode. :)

Well, what with my busy schedule and all, I do not often find the time to make as much use of the wonderful resource of the internet as I might like, and at the grand old age of 86, here I find myself beginning yet another new project, as a virgin blogger, lol!

I have never even visited the blogging world up until this point, and likely would never have done so, were it not for a friend linking me to a topic on which he asked me to speak to dispel a few 'myths' regarding the year 2012, and what may or may not occur, as the noonday winter solstice sun of December 21st makes it's presence felt by forming an alignment between the Galactic Plane and the Solstice Meridian.

I felt it would lack the personal touch to merely post as 'anonymous', so took the necessary steps in which to create a new account for myself with which to make my post.

Having done so, I felt quite intrigued at the idea of beginning my own blog for such discussions, and after some deliberation on how much time it would take to embark upon such a project, I decided to at least set out upon the task, and see where it takes me. :)

I'm not really one for talking to myself, so I feel that the duration of my time here will much rely upon the level of interest and feedback as to this blog's usefulness and impact. Not really much point in spending precious time working upon something that is considered of little use to my dear human brethren.

So, my intention is to begin with the same topic which I was asked by my aforementioned friend to speak on, that of the events on, and leading up to December 21st, 2012.

I will not waste precious moments on expounding my 'qualifications' to speak upon such matters in any great detail, as for anyone who is interested, such information can be found within my profile.

Suffice to say, that I am of Mayan and Qero (Peruvian) decent, and have spent much of my life involved with the study, research and teaching of our heritage, and have held a position upon our Council of Elders for some 19 years now, which is dedicated to furthering the knowledge of our ancient wisdom traditions.

It is my intention, should there be sufficient interest, to focus not only upon the topic of Mayan Tradition , 2012 etc, but to branch out into sharing my understandings and beliefs regarding the nature of the Human Life-Experience in general, and the ultimate purpose of our incarnations here on this very beautiful planet earth, throughout the passing millennia.

So, without further ado, I shall continue by following on from this opening post, and offering a segment of an email correspondence with my aforementioned friend, for your perusal.

I welcome any comments or questions that you may have, lol, if by some miracle I've actually set this blog thingy up correctly, and that someone does in fact happen to chance upon it's humble existence in cyberspace. :)

Kind Regards,

Dr. Ekahau, (The Council of Elders).
