Bouquets of Love

For Jose Arguelles ~ Valum Votan

Solar 16, White Crystal Mirror, March 22, 2013
2 Year Anniversary of Votan’s Passage

Tears falling
like warm diamonds
into my open, empty palms

I sit,
resting before your photograph

meditating on the Sun
we’ve swam around 2 times
here on Timeship Earth

since you
left

this dimension
and arrived
everywhere…

I know
you
are
not

in your eyes anymore

I know you live within my heart,

and within her heart, and within his…

I know that you live within everyone that loves you -
maybe that’s how you exist everywhere now…

The Rainbow still glows its mighty protection

Your spirit’s light sings
in the candle
the copal
the feather 

the flute
the stone

Your love guides us still
like a pulsing beacon from the other side

We thank you – ever and all ways – 
for the gifts that still give
for the treasures we still have yet to unwrap…

Over time,
the Mystery marching
To the One Celestial Heartbeat

that brought you, awoke you, and took you Beyond

To the One Celestial Heartbeat
that synchronizes the Heart of the Mission
inside each one of us,
as together
we keep growing

and tending
to the seeds of life

from the Holy Garden you planted

Each of us
like innocent sunflowers

facing towards the Light
basking in the rays
of the Sixth Sun’s Song

Praising
you

with
our
tiny
yet
vast

bouquets
of
shimming
gratitude

petals
like
diamonds

filling
our
hands

with
humble
yet
proud
offerings

Ah Yum Hunab Ku Evam Maya E Ma Ho!

Solstice 2012 in Palenque

Image

Having focused on, and prepared for the prophetic date of Dec 21, 2012 for the past 18 years, I was honored beyond words to cross the Solstice 2012 threshold in Palenque, Mexico, holding vigil around a blazing prayer fire, in sacred, torrential rains for hours on end, directly across from Maya Grandfather Don Marzo Yuk Quetzal, surrounded by a circle of kin, including many from the International Rainbow Family.

In the middle of the night, Grandfather’s presence was like a mystical mirage as he glowed in his white wizard cloak. He emanated fierce tenderness and determined compassion, many times proclaiming: “Guerreros de la Luz” (Warriors of light!) As he gently rattled, he was a shamanic artist, painting prayers with invisible colors, weaving words and hands as incantations before the sacred fire. The fire that consumed and transmuted one cycle into the next… the fire of the New Dawn burning vividly amidst the cosmic downpour. Grandfather’s eyes were closed the majority of the night, as he was clearly communing and communicating with his ancestors, his guides, the earth and the heavens.

I felt we were traveling on the canoe of the Maya ancestors, sailing through the “Xibalba Be” (Mayan term for the dark rift in the Milky Way Galaxy), while Grandfather was calmly and silently at the helm, letting Great Spirit steer. He navigated with an almost invisible hand, upholding the law of equality, permitting all to wield the moments of our long ceremony as the larger tapestry of communion unfolded through our collective heart.

For hours upon hours, we held hands, soaked and surrendered to the cosmic baptism purifying us from above, adorning the long moments with sacred songs of all traditions, while the ancient smoke of copal encircled us time and time again. Shiva Shiva… Hare Hare.. Hey Wichitayo… Tierra mi cuerpo… Om mani pedme hung… Countless sacred folk songs en espanol were cast. We were like children. Miraculously, every voice was pure, gorgeous, loud and holy as though the divine spirit was moving through each one’s vessel, guiding the ever-changing scene our one consciousness was to emerge into… Don Marzo’s wife Sylvie sang in octaves of crystalline rivers flowing from her soul, bringing me to encounter new angelic dimensions I had not yet met.

When the moment of Solstice SILENCE came, I was now sitting on my drenched wool poncho, directly across from Grandfather, next to Sylvie, all of us now seated before the grand fire, with a huge circle of kin still standing strong around us. It was a moment of ultimate nothing… pure being… Opening to receive the lucid victory of returning to zero, the victory of conscious unity on earth… Opening to send my heart and soul into the one shared, enlightened silence of inter-being… It was at once dramatic and calm, utterly surreal yet wholly penetrating. I was in ecstatic gratitude for all the days of my path that led to this conscious reunion, as I felt the presence of all the human hearts meeting this profound moment together… Surely the angels’ trumpets were heralding our arrival…

Hours later, as the sun of Dec 21, 2012 rose, our numbers increased dramatically. Still the rains poured, and together we greeted the directions with ancient Mayan prayers on this holy day of 4 Ahau. You could feel that now the mission was celebration of our successful crossing. Don Marzo’s beauty that shone like a gentle shaman in the night, now glowed like a soft king of heart in the daylight. His joy was both subtle and elegant, yet exuberant in the vast grin that ignited his face. Through Grandfather’s smile, the triumph of his ancestors resounded, and he was at once a wise elder and an innocent cosmic child.

As the day of Dec 21 unfolded in Palenque, the rains relentlesly poured, leaving nothing untouched. Arriving eventually at the ancient temples, the indigenous dancers were in full regalia – jaguar and coyote heads and feathers of unfathomable grandeur graced the moment as the copal burned on mighty coals. From many corners of the Earth, hundreds were gathered to feel the vibration of this ancient prophesized day resonating on the sacred stones and holy grounds. Natural Time Calendar kin had traveled from all around the globe to join in the festivities! Among other leaders, Stephanie South was there “On behalf of Jose Arguelles – Valum Votan, the healing of Mother Earth, and the manifestation of the Rainbow Bridge.”

Image

The day brought more long, rain-soaked circles of hand holding. Eventually, many of us joined in the sacred rhythms of the traditional dancers and danced joyously and timelessly in the mud. There was nothing to do but surrender to Mother Nature’s waters as she humbled us all equally and offered her cleansing rains to liberate the past world… Indeed, if you wanted to be in the majestic Realm of Palenque for Dec 21, 2012 you had to bear the unconquerable floods from the heavens. It felt it was not an average day at the Pyramids, as the temples too were being cleansed and renewed…

As I communed with the visible and invisible tribe gathered, I felt the ancestors and future generations inside my cells, my consciousness, my heart and soul, declaring: “Victory of Love. This is the Fulfillment of Prophecy.” This experience of TRIUMPH was not because of who we were, or where we were, or because of some particular ceremony being invoked… but because as a Global Family we were consciously unifying in our hearts, establishing a new foundation of lucid connectivity which is now our new guide in navigating here in 2013… I did, and still do, feel the TRIUMPH of successfully closing one cycle and entering into the next.

All told, I was in the rain for 16 hours straight. Having already known of the SunDance, now I have met the RainDance!

I feel the journey of this holy night and day is now a part of my soul. With infinite gratitude for this graduation and initiation, I bow to all the forces that allowed me this honor, and I vow to consciously integrate this empowerment into my life’s walk into the New World Age!

Grandfather Don Marzo Yuk Quetzal 12/19/12

AH YUM HUNAB KU EVAM MAYA E MA HO!

*One more reflection that I’d like to share is that it seems that a theme of Dec 21, 2012 for many, including myself, was that the day did not unfold as had been formally planned or expected. I feel this is a powerful teaching as it disempowers our egoic agendas and humbles our self importance. Upon hearing reports of others experiences it seems that for some, the Solstice may have felt uneventful, or chaotic, or people may have ended up alone instead of gathered in community. Also for many it seems the Solstice was dictated by Mother Nature’s extreme weather, reminding us of who is truly in charge. Let us gracefully accept however our Solstice experiences unfolded – whether majestic or subtle. Let us know that, regardless of appearances, we have consciously crossed the threshold together, and are now within a New Dimension of Possibility!

Flower of my life

Image

Each new day
is a petal on the flower of my life

Growing, I Am
in the soil of Divine Earth

Illuminated, I Am
by the Eternal Father’s Sun

Nourished, I Am
by the Infinite Mother’s Streams of Mercy

Destined, my body’s rose is
to meet the Doorway of Death

Rejoicing, my Spirit’s petals are
to arrive one day in the Garden of Pure Light
liberated beyond color, scent and form
to bloom into a shimmering dewdrop
adorning Creator’s Celestial Bouquet of Being

Until that sacred breathless moment,
I inhale,
invoking Gratitude
for the myriad elements that sustain my thriving

Smiling as a humble lily in the field of this precious Earth
dancing and dreaming through my days
as we ever-spiral, round the Great Central Sun…

All of us but innocent daisies,
Children in an evolving Galactic Fairy Tale
Learning to care for the One Garden of Life

 

ALIVE


The immensity of the Earth resounds

Can we touch it with our minds?
Can we reach the Sky through our hearts?
Can our bare feet
Sink to the planet’s crystal core?

Alive
We are
Tiny hands

Yet vast powers
Of imagination to create with…

As She spins in space, holding us,
Does Earth feel the electrifying winds of our dreams?
Does Earth sense the swirling storms of our fears?

Does the Cosmos hear
The colors of our human longings?

Our painted webs of confusion?
Our solar flares of brilliance?

Does our cacophony of culture
create the dreamscape of this world?

Or is the chaotic music of our fears and hearts
but a response to this boundless mystery we drift within?

What are the True Limits of this Universal Game we are all playing?
What Laws of Life run this Grand Show?

We all know the ancient truths
Of Death & Birth & Sun & Moon

But what force chooses the identities we play-
Soldier, healer, merchant, mother?

What is the Source of the vibrations
that compose the forms we inhabit –
the disguises we wear?

What is the origin
Of the light burning in the stars
And the passion sounding in our souls?

Is the immensity of Earth
Reflected
In the endless potential

Of our humanity?

Is Her diversity alive
In our sufferings
And our glories?

As She
Speaks to us
In waves
Of heat
And
Quakes
And
Floods –

How do we reply
With our
Hands

And
Hearts

And
Minds?

How do we enact
The art of our culture

To confront the poisons
And apply the medicines
Of these
Breaking Times?

How do we summon
The fierce wisdom of our Ancestors

And the spiritual will of Generations Beyond Us
To meet us Now –
In the cauldron of our hearts

To guide our way together,
In this moment of Planetary Prophecy

Ever-nearing the Threshold’s crossing…
?

Alive
We are
Tiny hands

Yet vast powers
Of Love to create with

Be The Rainbow

~ This Poem is for Valum Votan-Jose Arguelles,
who is now on the other side of the veil ~

Be The Rainbow

Riding on a dragon’s back you came,
soaring in to our dreams
enchanted gifts from the one true wizard you gave to us
shields and swords made of cosmic gold,
ancient like the breath of stones

“Look here,” you pointed, inside our heart-caves
“Look deep,” you urged,
“See the Moon’s voice painting pictures of light,
“See the Sun’s call beckoning you to stand straight and tall,
Receive the blessings of the talking Stars
mapping the cycles of your galactic voyage,

Commune with the antennas of the Trees,
Receive the Earth’s crystalline pulse,
Be as one with her evolutionary force,
Synchronizing your heroic mission…”

With celestial wings made of pyramids,
you flew to the One True Center,
you opened the shimmering gates of Tulan,
and pointed to the Guardians of Cosmic Night
“Feed them with your surrender,” you sang
“Praise them with the violet petals of your mind’s heart.”

Deeper still, your feathers stretched,
with codes of rattlesnakes glowing upon their vastness
“To pass through,” you whispered with a smile,
“You must know the ripe moment
to offer your humble soul to the One World’s Soul…

To cross dimensions,
you must dissolve your little fears
into the One Dancing Ocean of Being…”

With a comet in your burning eyes you chanted:
“Only Harmony knows the True Time
Only Harmony knows the True Way
Only Harmony knows the True Self
Harmony is Atonement
Harmony is the Lord of the New Earth
Harmony is the Empress of the New Heavens
Harmony is the only key…”

Upon the blank canvas of our minds,
you showed us the Earth as a cosmic turtle
swimming in the mighty waves of timeless time
you showed us her destiny…

“Be the Rainbow,” you sang to us,
in melodies conjuring us to remember…

“Be the Rainbow,
and take company with the Angels
who protect our one Universe…

Be the Rainbow,
and sleep no more within this cosmic dream,
but Awaken as the Flower you are,
shining as a child in the Garden of Love

You raised your obsidian staff and declared:
“Be the Rainbow, We are One.
Be the Rainbow, We have won.
For the Battle of History
is only fought with the Light of Forgiveness
The Balance of Justice
is only brought with the Light of Compassion
The New Earth Chapter
is only written by the stars of your Heart
The New Human Culture
is only birthed through the wisdom of Planetary Art…

“Be the Rainbow
and Take Flight on the Wings of Now…
I am with you always,”
you closed with a bow.

~A Poem For The Vajrasa Temple Dance Ensemble~

Vajrasa Temple Dance Ensemble

Flying………….
     fluid wings of water………….
framed by flames
     She graced the Earth
With her celestial aura of flowers
     A halo of beauty from an ancient above
          Sent from
                   The Temple
                                Of the Sky
                                              Dancer
Igniting Remembrance

Rock hard wrath of Thunder
     Flashing for us all to feel
          The immutable power
of true Feminine

Lightning-fire
Burning in self-delight
of its form
unfolding

Moving in supernatural rapids
Emenating   myriad   prismatic  crystalline
Transmissions

Yet infinite stillness abounding

Like a sacred mirage from the deep void
              a scene in-between worlds –
hide and seek of dimensions exposed

Displayed like a heavenly serpent
Sent to Reveal
Mysteries of the Source
of its undulating prowess

fractal spiral     
uniting stone on ground
     star in sky
Human channel to penetrate the veil

With 10 arms and 10 feet
They Danced
The 5 Dakinis
Into our mind-space

                   Casting a pure trance
Upon the stage of our imagination
Invoking our potential to heal

To redeem
To honor our internal sanctuaries

     Messengers calling
The nectar of holy submission
To arise in our souls

With a beckoning of mudras
     Eyes and bellies precise
Motions cut

              Like steps of a pyramid
Carving a holy path
For us to find ourselves

In Transcendental Union
               With The Devadasi ~
The Higher Dimensional Empress

Guiding us to dissolve our egos
     And set sail
Upon the One Spinning Mandalic Ocean…

Entering The Shambhallic Palace
Of Life’s Omnipresent Beauty

Sacred Questions I Ask Myself…

"Cosmic Question Mark" Photo from NASA Hubble Space Craft

“We must continuously keep in mind
that the world is a collective dream,
and that we are engaged
in dreaming a new world into being.”
-Jose Arguelles

How can we comprehend the vital role our imagination –
our dreaming capacities – our psyche – our consciousness- plays
in re-engineering our world and our global society to one of harmony?
How can we unify the powers of our imagination and our creative visionary longings for new frontiers, with concrete, grounded actions?

Can we understand these times of prophecy as asserting we are “Re-Turning”… ?
The course is changing…We are Remembering something forgotten…
Ancient hidden memories dawning… Self-knowledge emerging…

How can we unite the ancient indigenous roots of living wisdom, with the gifts of modern creativity and new insight? What is possible for human culture as we drop our allegiance to artificial technospheric “progress” and we re-sensitize to the Natural World?

What new levels are awakening inside of us as Nature’s cycles are now calling us out of our deep sleep of separation, fear, ignorance and greed and back into awareness of the interconnectedness of the Whole?

How can we remember our sacred place in this Universe
as instruments here to affirm and honor the gift of Life?
How can we be instruments of Harmony?
Where there is war, sowing seeds of peace…
Where there is fear, sowing seeds of light…
Where there is pain, sowing seeds of compassion….

How courageous are we really,
to let go of what we have known, to drop the script of history,
and be wholly available for new domains of planetary existence?

Sunset view from space

How authentically can we open to new positive possibilities?
How deeply can we believe in the beauty and power of our hearts?
How available can we be to the accelerating currents of evolution?

How calm can we be amidst the intensifying storms of changes and shakings, as we are invited ever-more deeply to meet the mystery of our existence, and each day more honestly confront the realities of how fragile and precious our lives are, and how tumultuously this moment hangs in the balance?

What does it mean to be Shifting World Ages?
What is happening to Earth in this transformation process?
Are all the abundant crises part of  “The Emergence?”
How can there be so much tragedy and beauty simultaneously?
Is it because All is being amplified?
Is it because as the prophecies say:
“All that has been Hidden is being Revealed” ?

It seems no accident all the turmoil and grace on our planetary scene is coinciding with epic Solar Flares that are mutating all life on Earth…
not to mention affecting our consciousness…
Chaos and Coherence Dancing to the Cosmic Symphony…

In this alignment with Galactic Center now taking place,
can we have the courage to open to the new vibrations arriving?
Can we open to a new dimension of reality that is not some utopian fantasy
but rather a grounded, embodied Heart Awakening?

How can we find wholeness in this fragmented modern culture so split off from Nature?
How can we transcend our obsession with our “little me’s” and put our energies into collaborating with the One family of Life? How can we earnestly keep growing that we may fulfill our missions in these crossroads times on Earth?

As Maya Ajq’ij Denise Barrios writes
in regards to December 21,
2012:

“Mother Earth – like the living being that she is – will elevate her spiritual condition. This is why humankind, as a manifestation of her evolutionary legacy, will be able to transcend to the next level. Sadly, we have continued to destroy our Mother Earth and have put our own evolutionary history at risk, just as the previous civilizations did when they reached this point. Notwithstanding, once again we have the opportunity to ascend to a higher level, and to perfect our spiritual evolution through Her.”

What does it mean to ALIGN with the Earth’s Shifting into a new world age?
How do we survive The Great Shaking? What if our heart knows much more clearly how to navigate these mysterious and dangerous times than our linear minds do?

What does wisdom look like – how does it act – how does it share itself?
How do art and wisdom intersect and synergize
and give birth to new joys and new blessings
that benefit the whole of life?

What does it mean to Honor the Earth as a Living Work of Art?
What does is mean to be Planetary Artists?
What IS Art?
Can we re-define “art” to where ALL people can be artists
with entirely distinct mediums of beauty and truth?

What IS Compassion in action?
How can we truly live in lucid recognition of our interconnectedness
with all beings and ALL MOMENTS?

Art by Atmara Rebecca Coe

How vastly can we imagine the possibilities of healthy human culture?
How vastly can we dream?
How effortlessly and gracefully can we awaken our human potential –
personally and planetarily?

How courageously can we support each other to Shine?

How humbly can we bow to our sacred equality?

How deeply can we honor our Living Earth home?
What role do our hearts have in restoring her sanctity?
What role do our hands have in mending her whole?

How at home can we feel in this Universe –
how can we KNOW our place in this galaxy?

Can we be both wise and innocent?
Free and disciplined?
Spontaneous and grounded?
Now-centered with long-term Vision?

Can we be the Feathered Serpent
uniting our primal earth bodies and our celestial spirit minds?

Can we transcend the cage of death-fear and meet our Spirits?

Can we allow the idea of “the end of the world” to die
and transform into a devotion to birthing the world alive, anew?

How can we confront the horrors – the violence – the corruption – the abuse
and ignorance with Divine Compassion and Divine Justice?

Can we feel the presence of those who came before us
who cut pathways on this Earth with their own feet and souls…?
Can we feel ourselves as living links
between our ancestors and those yet to come?

How many times has our Soul been on Earth?
Where else have we been? How vast is the Universe?

What is our “Galactic Responsibility?”

Can we transcend the mind-fears that bind us, haunt us, stress us
and shut down our self-love?
Can we replace our distortions of self-importance
with the realities of our true self worth?

Can we embrace the simplicity of Being
as its presence all ways breathes and smiles
underneath the clouds and veils of thinking…?

Can we meet the epic challenges
and rise to these Grand Times we are in
as a Beacon in the Night –
A Phoenix taking Flight…
?

I ask these sacred questions of myself,
and of you – as another myself…

May our Sincerity guide us to ever-evolve into our radiant altruistic nature,
Aryz

The Mystery Weaves and Breathes our Lives


When did our history start?
Before it was ever marked…
For no line
can tell
the tale

of our spiral
unfolding.

What is our true age as a species?
And what World Age
are we living in now?

Where have we come from?
And to what World
are we going?

Is our course
mapped
by
stars in stone

Or is our path
a creative
“free will experiment?”

What Source
does life emerge from?

What Source
does death deliver us to?

The Mystery,
which we dwell within,

has no beginning,
nor an end

for Mysteries
live
only
to
unravel
their
teachings…
and the only moment
a mystery
can ever
reveal
itself
is the
Present

How can we see history from the Heart of Now?
How can we see the path of this moment’s real potentials
 ~  beyond our cloaks of “little me’s” ~
and greet the new dawn
as it is

calling us to dance
the ancient lucid beauty
of its new harmonies

As a conscious species
becoming whole

we are
Evolving,
On and on and on

slowly but surely,
but ever mysteriously

with full ripe danger
of self-inflicted wounds
born of bonds of
ignorant allegiance
to a false master:

ego’s portrait cast upon a vacant mirror

Let us trade in our rusted and worn self-concepts
for a new comprehension
of the Nature that we are,

each of us a fruit and flower
of One growing, budding Tree of Life

Let us shed the old skins
whose time it is to be let go of

and compost their decay
to nourish new seeds
of possibility

to ripen their codes of raw beauty
upon a weary planetary scene,
bleak with exhaustion and contraction

Let us breathe into a brighter color
Let us hear a louder clarity
Let us see a more delicious
Feast of love
before our eyes

And within our palms,

Receiving All this Mystery
As it forces us to Surrender to it,
Knowing Time does heal all,
As we welcome
The tumultuous
ever-bright journey

Calling us to climb
The Mountain of Love

Whose peak reaches beyond
the clouds in our souls

Straight to the beginningless
endless
Source of Self,
in all its Nature

“When you are in tune with the unknown, the known is peaceful.”

Morning Walk

Morning walk
          upon a planet spinning
my feet are small
slow ~ but steady ~ in steps of sincerity

Vast creation abounds
yellow leaves, crisp air surrounds
          veils of thoughts circulating,
rushing like the creek flowing in calm determination

Who gave me this life?
What role does my journey serve?
          When these feet expire ~
what art will my spirit know?

The world reflects the walk
          we all have joined in
trials and glories of the past encoded
into the breathing mystery of this moment

My feet ~ gentle fragile and strong
Precise in their path
          tiny tokens of existence
mapping an instinctive way
through the unknowable destiny

          of this body’s soul

Time dances ~ weaving its cycles
birth and death of seasons
coming and going,      guiding
the pulsing of my heart
to appreciate this life I have been given to walk

At once, I am a pioneer,
          a passenger on this earth,
and an evolving child
venturing along
Great Spirit’s unfolding Road of Being

Open and humble,  I go on…

Natural Time Update

Written on Cosmic 23, Blue Crystal Hand, July 19 2011, 3 Cauac

Greetings Tribe of Light!

Red Moon Glyph

In the 13-Moon Natural Time Calendar, we are now nearing the completion of The Red Overtone Moon Year (July 26, 2010 – July 25, 2011). This has been quite a year! The focus of this cycle has been: Purification, Flow, Universal Waters, Self-Remembrance, Empowerment, Taking Command, and Radiating from our connection to our Center, aligned to the Center of All that Is. As is clear to all of us, this year has brought massive change,  personal and planetary, too many examples to list… This is a good time for each of us to take stock of all that we have gone through during this journey around the Sun, contemplating all the ways that we have grown, all that we have learned, and also recognizing the ways we  have yet to grow.

As a planetary family, we are enduring tremendous initiations, living through unprecedented times of record earth changes, climate change, and natural/man-made disasters of all kinds… In these epic days, much crisis and extreme, unfathomable hardship unfold, as do new miracles blooming new colors of love and evolution. Being alive in these times is a vast challenge, a huge honor, and the Greatest Mystery.

The message remains the same: Courage. Compassion. Creativity. Surrendering to the Journey. Intuition. Listening to Earth. Continuing to learn how to live in Harmony and Balance with Nature. Arising as Conscious Agents of Calm and Heart. Following our Inspiration. Living our Purpose. Giving our Gifts to the Whole.  Unifying with Local, Global, and Galactic Community. Opening to the New on every level…

THE ORDER IN CHAOS

Red Earth Glyph

One of the most significant occurrences during this year was the huge earthquake and tsunami in Japan on March 11, 2011 that initiated the worst nuclear crisis in all of history. I find it extremely noteworthy that on the Natural Time Calendar, March 11, 2011 was “Red Crystal Earth.” Out of all the 260 possibilities of energies in the Natural Time Matrix called “Tzolkin,” Red Crystal Earth is the EXACT counter-balance, challenge-that-strengthens the energy of  “Blue Crystal Hand” which is the code of the December 21, 2012 completion of this World Age Cycle. In other words, the nuclear catastrophe and the completion of this vast world age have an intimate, intricate relationship. Knowing this gives me a profound feeling of being held by the synchronicity and intelligence underlying the events playing out in our world as we live through the final stages of this current World Age, known by the Hopi as “The Fourth World of Destruction” and move closer to entering the new cycle called “The Fifth World Age of Peace.” For me, having this clear sign of the harmonic architecture of time unifying this most terrifying catastrophe with the auspicious day of the ending of the 5,125 year Mayan Grand Cycle is deeply reassuring. These crossroad times of transformation, painful and cathartic as they surely are, are aligned on schedule. All of life is being touched by the momentum of these times. The metamorphosis is in full effect. It is no small matter to endure the Shifting of World Ages!

EVERY DAY COUNTS! CLOSER AND CLOSER TO SOLSTICE 2012 SYNCHRONIZATION!

Yellow Star Glyph

July 20, 2011, is Yellow Cosmic Star and “4 Ahau” on the Traditional Maya Calendar. This day marks exactly 520 days, 2 perfect Tzolkin cycles of 260-days each, until December 21, 2012 – the completion of this 5,000 year cycle of Recorded History. Knowing where we are at in this larger context gives us even greater incentive to rise up into our responsibilities in these times.

Regarding the December 21, 2012 Synchronizaton: Here is an excerpt from our new 13-Moon Calendar:

“While this date holds great significance, it wise we do not imagine that it will bring the end of the world, nor the end of all our far-reaching global problems. Let us recognize this prophetic 12/21/12 date from the Ancient Maya for what it is: a precise marker defining the end of our current World Age Cycle. Beyond this auspicious completion date, we shall embark on a New World Age; a new evolutionary phase; a new chapter rich with possibilities: new comprehension, new challenges, new inspiration.” 

Beyond all the hype and negative and positive fantasies about what Solstice 2012 might bring, the down to earth message is that it is crucial we understand the importance of this synchronization as a planetary family. This will be the most focused on date by the most amount of people in all of history, and it is the rarest opportunity to unify all that energy in a loving spirit of consciously completing the old world age, and courageously embarking on the new! Indeed this New Era to come is up to our Hearts and Hands to actualize it!

If you haven’t already, please visit http://peace2012.net   and join the focused efforts to unify people around the globe in the spirit of peace and harmony on Dec 21, 2012, that we may meet this auspicious synchronization in the most powerful way possible!

VAYEB FIVE-DAY PURIFICATION CYCLE:  JULY 21 – JULY 25

July 21, 2011, Red Magnetic Moon is the start of the 5-day Vayeb cycle. This is always the final 5 day cycle of the Natural Time Year, a time for purification and resolving important matters before the start of the New Year. The Vayeb is a time for purification on all levels – physically and spiritually, practically and mystically. Follow your own intuition of how to observe this important cycle. During these final 5 days, let us integrate all this Red Overtone Moon Year has brought us into our hearts, that we may prepare to venture into a New Year!  The culminating day of the Vayeb is always The Day out of Time, July 25.

JOIN IN THE DAY OUT OF TIME!

On the Day out of Time, people in 90 countries focus on Stopping Business as Usual, and Celebrating Peace Through Culture. Please join in! Whether you have a ceremony or celebration alone with yourself, or you join in with others in your community, please tune in on this day and add your light to the collective intention. (Always on July 25th!)

The fact that this July 25 is a Monday on the Gregorian calendar is all the more reason to make sacred space to antidote the “Time is Money” consensus reality, and to instead empower and actualize the truth that “Time is Art!” The Day out of Time gives us an opportunity to meditate on how we can more deeply root to the true, non-linear order of the Universe, knowing that clocks and work-weeks are not accurate models of Nature’s Harmonies. We are Time. The more we strengthen our connections to our own natural rhythms and intuitive and telepathic sense of timing, the more we are shown how to gracefully be in the right place at the right time, becoming ever-more conscious of Synchronicities as the natural way the Universe arranges life. Ultimately, this special Day out of Time is here to inspire us of this timeless dimension that is always accessible to us, calling us to visit it more and more, that we may gradually keep learning to live in phase with Natural Time.

UNIVERSAL FORGIVENESS

Another very important focus of The Day out of Time is “Universal Forgiveness.” As Jose Arguelles shared: “Universal Forgiveness is an affirmation of the unity of existence.” Please enjoy this video by Jose Arguelles sharing on “Forgiveness and The Day out of Time” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBLxAgKygjs&feature=share

Please make space on this auspicious day to embody forgiveness, let go of grievances, and align with an even deeper level of compassion for all players in this one human family. This can be done as a formal ceremony, or in private meditation, or just with the power of your heart’s focus. Indeed this is a life-changing energy that is purely positive, liberating stuck energies and freeing up old wounds from the past, a perfect way to clear the slate for The New Year!

NATURAL TIME NEW YEAR – July 26!

The upcoming Natural Time Year  is “The White Rhythmic Wizard” (July 26, 2011 – July 25, 2012). This Year is focused on the powers of “Timelessness, Receptivity, Enchantment, Organizing, Balancing, and Equality.” In this Year we cross over the threshold into 2012, and our Journey of Transformation Continues!
