like astrology, the Mayan calendar, or Tzolkin, has 13 cycles (lunar) of 20 days
each. The base date of the Long Count is August 11, 3114 B.C. In the
Long Count time periods are grouped into multiples of the numbers 13 and 20, numbers that
Westerners less familiar with. In the Long Count, time is cyclic, and there are a finite number of
days that must occur after the base date before a new cycle commences.
The Long Count has three elements
that are shared with the Western Christian calendar; a base date, a means of
grouping large periods of time, and an astrological component. The Mayan glyph to the right happens to be the one associated with
my birth date, where in the Eastern/Western astrological makeup, I am a
Rooster/Cancer. It is all rather fascinating. Here's a link to the Dreamspell calendar developed by some of Jose
My first introduction to the Mayan Calendar was from an
interview with Dr. Arguelles in Meditation Magazine that I read during the
Harmonic Convergence of 1987.
Jose was responsible for introducing the Mayan Calendar and the Harmonic
Convergence to the world. Years
later I met Jose and Lloydine Arguelles when I was the event manager for
The Prophets Conference in 1997 in Laveen, AZ. What a joy they were to engage.
also met his South American coordinator at the event, connecting with him again
on a visit to Santiago, Chile, and a 'Day Out of Time' festival there in
2001. Meeting up with Chris Sinclair was quite
serendipitous as Jose had just got through writing a book about a conversation
between Memnosis and Lucifer that my partner and I devoured later that evening.
I've also met and spoken with
Ian Lungold on several
occasions during the early 2000s. His discoveries of Dr. Carl Johan Calleman's work
and his own correlative experiences made him an outspoken proponent of the
Cycles of Time and our planetary evolution. Dr. Calleman wrote the foreword to
one of Dr. Arguelles' books as well. John Major Jenkins is also a prolific Mayan
Calendar proponent, and eventually much of the information garnered from the
calendar became more concurrent with purpose than with actual timeframes within
I'm aware of various points of contention between the
three and their obsessive 'date' focus as to exactly when this is all
supposed to happen. Like many 'dates' in time it is the sequence and flow of
the shifts that take place before and after that are the true results of the
awareness. Fussing over specifics, at least on a cosmic scale, doesn't seem
to have much credence when you are dealing with 26,000 or 52,000 or even
78,000 year cycles, eh? Although if one were to coagulate the possibilities,
it would seem that significant dates would line up with natural cycles and
What is interesting is the fact that Hindu calendars also
corroborate the Mayan predictions though both these civilization had no contact
with each other. According to Hind scriptures, the world goes through 4 stages
in a cycle. They believe that the year 2012 could mean the end of KaliYuga (Dark
Era) and mark the beginning of Sat Yuga. In this yug, humans will undergo a
spiritual awakening and Golden Age will begin. In that age, the world will not
be material based but spiritual based.
The most prevalent notion is one of a conscious
evolution, a movement toward a connected global consciousness even cosmic consciousness
that is an expression of oneness. A
collection of videos here may help you find your own answers to the pertinent
questions. Keep in mind that truth has a way of resonating at the deepest levels
of your being, subtly finding a place in your heart. One needs to have a certain
openness, or as one spiritual text puts it, "the eyes to see and the ears to
Scribe Aleister Crowley, speaking of True Power
puts it this way:
"Power is something gained
by renunciation. It is the 7th Key of the Tarot. Every true Magician must
give the last drop of his life's blood into the cup of the Holy Grael.
And if by magick power we
mean true power, the assimilation of all with the Ultimate Light, the true
Bridal of the Rosy Cross, then is that blood the offering of Virginity, the
sole sacrifice well-pleasing to the Master, the sacrifice whose only reward
is the pain of child-bearing unto him. But to sell one's soul to the devil,
to renounce no matter what for an equivalent of personal gain, is black
magic. You are no longer a noble giver of your all but a mean huckster..."
After stepping back and looking from a distance I've come to the
conclusion that the transition between the Piscean and Aquarian age fits a
little different way. In the 25 years leading up to the 2012 Winter Solstice
we've progressed in consciousness, increased in awareness as a planetary
society. Awareness of what, you might ask? Awareness of a greater
consciousness permeating our thoughtmosphere that connects us all. Embedded
within that consciousness is the blueprint for a New World Order of harmony
among people and planet.
Now that we are on the other side those 'plans' are leaking into the
waking consciousness of many, preparing the way for implementing the new
patterns and technology. So it appears we have another 25 years to roll out
the plan. Everything is on schedule and will work out accordingly.
Consciousness is evolving within us as a natural order of universal affairs,
a greater awareness of cosmic consciousness condensed into these forms.
In memoriam to Jose Arguelles, Valum Voltan - pioneer
in the New Time, who passed just recently. It was a blessing and pleasure to
have known you, not just as an investigator but as a human BEing and fellow
celestial traveler. Indeed, 'The Galactic Federations look forward to the
New Time!' I'm truly honored, humbled and hybridized - Zen of the Clean Wave
