September 2012 News:
End or Beginning?
Although there have been books, articles, documentaries and also movies about the date of December 21, 2012 - what is the reality? Did the Maya intend for the people of our time to fear that the world would end on a certain date?
From the earliest of times, the Mayans had two calendars: 'Short Count' and 'Long Count'. Scholars have often referred to the modern 52-year Venus calendar as the 'Short Count'. This Western calendar counts time as linear - the Mayans, Aztecs, Toltecs and nearly every distinct culture that lived in Mesoamerican used a cyclical calendar based upon a unique astrological system. The Maya were night-watchers of the stars and planets.
The Maya of central American were responsible for developing and establishing a calendar of far greater range and duration; one that was based upon a recurring time period of precisely 1,872,000 days, approximately equal to 5,125.36 years. The name given to this particular calendar is the 'Long Count'. The 'Long Count' calendar counted cycles - each cycle was called a Bak'tun. At the end of each Bak'tun, the Maya calendar would also end, there were be ceremony denoting the ending - and the Maya would begin a new calendar beginning at 0.00 with much enthusiasm.
The internet today supplies a great deal of information - both scientific, astrological, mythological and fantastical. Each opinion concludes: a period of time began on 3114 BCE and will end on December 21 (or Dec. 23, depending on the source), 2012.
We've spoken to you before in newsletters , in workshops and devoted an entire radio show (show #8) to talk about the Hidden Side of 2012 and the naturally occurring 26,000 year cycle of our planet. Actually the precession cycle is 25,770 years and represents the movement of the equinoxes - the points where the Earth's extended equator intersects the Earth's orbital plane. Dividing the 25,770 year cycle by 5, we arrive at 5,154 years - remarkably close to the 5,125 year span of the 'Long Count' calendar.
Both Maya and Aztec cosmology tell of five great ages, with our present age being the fifth. Further, the Maya had time periods much larger than the 'Long Count' itself, extending time far beyond where it was taken by ancient Western cultures.
The end date of the 'Long Count' is both the terminal point of the current fifth part of the precessional cycle and, in the context of the Mesoamerican 5-stage creation cosmology, the terminal point of the entire 25,770 year cycle itself. It also concurs that the beginning of a new phase in the precession of time will occur.
Two of our loyal friends (and HSH practitioners) visited the Penn Museum in Philadelphia, PA (USA) to experience the Exhibit detailing the history of the Maya culture. We encourage you to read Sheila Nelson's article which includes a uTube video interview with Dr. Loa Traxler, curator of the exhibit.
There are many, many variations of what our present time period holds, with astonishing details to be found in the steadily growing literature on the Mayan Calendar. Perhaps this great age we presently are in will culminate with the beginning of yet another great age. Perhaps the information (and misinformation) about the upcoming date in December 2012 is the necessary wake-up call for humanity to adopt a more conscious awareness of itself and our planet. It is up to each of us individually to decide for ourselves what we choose - fear or the promise of change.
As always - we welcome your feedback!!
