We’ve all heard the hype around 2012, but let’s take a look at what is actually being said by some Mayan Elders. According to Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq’ij (is a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide) of the Eagle Clan, we are no longer in the Age called by the Maya the Fourth Sun, and are in transition to the Fifth Sun.
During this transition, upheavals in our environment, weather systems, and Earth — and our materialistic based society — are occurring. This much is obvious, as we are currently living through these upheavals. Carlos has studied the old calendars and consulted with nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders, and tells us:
“Humanity will continue, but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human. We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies. All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions are converging now. There is no time for games. The spiritual ideal of this era is action.”
Yes, action. And as you know, action is the antidote to despair. Action in love could be considered “active meditation”.
Action in love, kindness, and understanding will help the process. Environmental action, helping out with the Occupy movement, fostering homeless animals, and living creatively all accelerate the process of change for the better. Each of us can add to the energy of change by doing all things in LOVE.
“This process has already begun. Change is accelerating now and it will continue to accelerate.”
“If the people of the Earth can get to this 2012 date in good shape without having destroyed too much of the Earth, we will rise to a new, higher level. But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way.”
One look around can show you the “enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way.” In the US, these giant multinational corporations have financed “think tanks” and purchased politicians. the opposition can seem overwhelming.
In the U.S. they have 5 members of the Supreme Court who have done their bidding by emboldening corporate power and dis-empowering the citizenry. Both political parties in the US are corrupt. The 1% have taken over the Republican political party completely, and also own most of the Democratic party (with a few notable exceptions).
Their lobbyists have infiltrated government, not only with money, but by holding positions of power. Meanwhile, their agents in religion and media use their influence to breed hate and fear — because fearful people are easily manipulated.
“Just now the dark side is very strong, and very clear about what they want. They have their vision and their priorities clearly held, and also their hierarchy. They are working in many ways so that we will be unable to connect with the spiral Fifth World in 2012.”
And notice that Carlos does not say to do battle with them — he says we must transform them. Where do we start?
We must, really, we must…start with LOVE.
It’s challenging not to engage violence with violence… which is why the police are so very violent right now. It is an attempt to get us to behave in similar fashion and thus dissipate our genuine Power. It’s natural to hit back, and it’s natural to hate. But we are called to be more than “natural.” These are the times of change.
Why do you think workshops at Occupy locations all over the country teach meditation and peaceful negotiation, rather than handling of firearms or hand-to-hand combat? Because we’re growing up.
Everybody knows that it’s easy to love those who are our friends, who are like-minded…but:
I once heard it said that if you can love someone you would normally detest, you are becoming enlightened. Admittedly, I’m still working on it…
Sometimes, I can see sexists and racists as broken, abused children who could have turned out beautiful had it not been for their upbringing.
I have had dreams in which I encounter certain conservative bullies who have found themselves out of their bodies and were afraid. I’m quite comfortable in these ethereal realms, so it’s only normal that in these dreams, I feel only compassion for them, and I comfort them, and teach them about the out of body experiences. I’m always amazed at the amount of compassion I feel when I awake – and I want to live up to that level of compassion in my regular life!
So, yes…sometimes I can feel the love and compassion for a scowling teabagger who believes the FOX “news” propaganda.
Not always…but sometimes.
And when I do, I can instantly feel the healing energy of love. I can feel the hugeness of compassion. And in those moments, I can feel that change is truly possible.
Psychologists say that it only takes 10% of a society to accept an idea before it becomes an inevitable meme that changes culture…rather like the 100th monkey theory.
We must transform those who appear right now to be our “enemies”. And for that, we need to become LOVE.
So, we come full circle. Take action. Help. Teach. Donate. Write. DO something from a place of LOVE.
Love in Action is what it’s all about.
