It seems that we are being driven mad by the Gregorian Calendar. We race from one holiday to the next fueled by some sort of retail frenzy, feverish to out buy the family next door. The Gregorian Calendar is chaotic at best and doesn't flow with the natural flow of the Universe. It pretends that man and our "cosmic piece of mud" is the center of the Universe. I remember my Mom reading "Horton Hears A Who" By Dr Suess. She read it so many times to us that she could recite it by heart. What if we are the the Who's in Whoville? I suspect that we are. The Gregorian Calendar wasn't adoted by most countries until 1582 and not until 1752 by the United States. Why do we run endlessly from one holiday to the next? What is driving us? What is the goal? What does it say about our purpose here on Mother Earth?
There is another calendar that is making news with modern man these days, the Mayan Calendar. So what is all the hype about? A calendar developed or realized by the Mayan's since at least the 5th Century BC! The calendar was adopted from other cultures including the Aztecs and other early Mesoamerican Cultures. The time keeping system of the Mayans was a combination of several cycles that meshed together, marking the movement of the Sun, Moon and Venus. Their sacred calendar, the Tzolkin, is based on the cycles of the Pleiades, encompassing 26,000 years. Seems to have a bit more integrity with that time span. It also breaks time down into smaller increments of 5,200 years. Every Mayan Pyramid consists of 9 steps or levels representing the 9 waves of the Mayan Calendar. We are now in the final 5,200 year stage of the Homo Sapien, the very last of an evolutionary cycle some 26,000 years in the making. The Mayan Calendar predicts life in this Universe not only going forward but also going back to the beginning of time. How were they able to do that with such accuracy?
What are these ancient civilizations trying to tell us? Have we lost our ability to "intuit" as we blindly follow a calendar based on modern ideas of commerce & consumption? By being "too busy", have we lost connection with our own inner guidance? Our calendar seems to dominate our culture and our consciousness. This stage of the Mayan Calendar marks the end of this phase of human evolution. Where do we go from here? What is next? Will we wake up in time to make the changes necessary to evolve forward, to become what we were meant to be? Who are you listening to? Who do you allow to be your guide? Will we continue to blindly follow a calendar based on religious & government holidays raging with retail hormones? Or will we turn and listen to the important messages from ancient civilizations around the world and the messages from our beautiful Mother Earth? Quiet your mind, you may be surprised by what you hear.
