A thought-provoking analysis of theMayan Calendar
according to Ian Lungold
Carl J. Calleman Ph.D., is a biochemical scientist from Sweden. For 30 years he has worked in labs performing microbiology experiments. Most of his work was investigating how pollution causes disease to proliferate. Eight years ago he trained his attention on the Mayan calendar to see what correlations or sets of facts could be proven not just "studied" as the archeologists have done. What he uncovered with his newfound "hobby" is quickly changing the world and the way we live with it. Dr. Calleman has scientifically proven the Schedule of Creation and Evolution over the last 16.4 billion years (from the Big Bang forward). Dr. Calleman has lectured about the Mayan calendar in nine different countries and was one of the main speakers at the conference about the Mayan calendar organized by the Indigenous Council of the Americas in Merida, Yucatan, 1998. He is the author of Maya-hypotesen (in Swedish, 1994), Solving the Greatest Mystery of Our Time: The Mayan Calendar (Garev, Coral Springs and London, 2001)from which interested readers may gain a more extended background to the ideas presented in this article, and a forthcoming book in English, Enlightenment: The Mayan Calendar as Our Guide to the Future (Acalan, Albuquerque, 2003).Mr. Ian Lungold entered the scene for his discovery of a simple formula to find any day on the Mayan calendar from the Gregorian calendar thereby providing access to the Mayan calendar for every man, woman and child on Earth. Dr. Calleman and Lungold are working together to expose this vital information. Dr. Calleman is in Europe and Asia and Lungold has the American continents as his responsibility. Why the Mayan Calendar? Why should anyone be interested in the Mayan calendar? We have the Gregorian calendar? Isn't one calendar enough? Perhaps not. Our culture, as opposed to indigenous cultures, is cut off from our natural surroundings and to the "Natural Cycles" of life. One could say we are fixated or even addicted to convenience and glitz. Probably less than 5% of the people you know could tell you what phase the moon is in. Our mental disconnection from the underlying patterns of our evolvement as the human race has caused an increasing unbalance of emotion. We exhibit this with crime, pollution and wars. As a result, Mother Earth's upset is expressed in "weird weather" such as earthquakes and volcanoes, simply because we are not paying attention anymore! If we seriously want to heal our relationship with Mother Earth, we must spend some "quality time" paying attention to these natural cycles. Doing things like watching a moonrise, sitting through a sunset, or finding North, South, East and West from where you are now. These are natural cycles. Anyone who takes an interest in the ancient culture of the Maya will soon realize that this people had an understanding of time which was vastly different from our own, and many have come to use it for their own spiritual evolution. The Gregorian calendar (and many calendars from other cultures) is basically tied to agriculture, i.e., helping people to keep track of the agricultural year. For agricultural reasons, it has been necessary to arrive at a very exact estimate of the astronomical year and to keep each day of the year frozen with regard to the position the earth is in during its orbit around the sun. Such a calendar is useful for telling us when to sow and harvest, etc. The ancient peoples of this planet, however, also had a divine calendar which was founded on the 360 day year. The Maya totally ignored the solar cycle as the center of their consciousness. All Mayan calendar dates, including personal birthdays, dedications, and most sacred ceremonial events were measured in 360 day periods called tuns (pronounced "tunes.") According to the Maya, each day in Creation has its own sacred energy and purpose. There are 260 different combinations of 20 different Day Lord Energies or "Sacred Sun Signs" (light energy sent by the Sun), and 13 different Galactic Energies or "Tones" sent as light frequencies from the Central Sun of our galaxy. The Central Sun of our galaxy is The One Giver of Movement and Measure. Each of the Day Lords - or "Sacred Sun Signs" - has a personality and each of the Galactic Energies - or "tones" - have a purpose or intent. This combination gives each day a "personality" and "intent." By following the days on the Mayan calendar, you become entrained or synchronized with the natural cycles that are timed by this calendar. Thus your time becomes more natural and less mechanical. No sweat, no strain, just flow of attention on what day it is. But the Mayan calendar has even broader and more profound implications. As the true meaning of the calendar is solved, it becomes clear that we are living in a creation that evolves according to a pre-set schedule, i.e., the Maya were keeping track of the flow, rate, and intent of Creation itself or the evolution of consciousness throughout Creation. You have heard that history repeats itself. This is now proven fact. There is a repeating pattern to all of Creation. Quantum physics has proven this over and over in the organization of matter. There is a pattern of intentions and events, as well. We - or rather Consciousness - have been down this same road seven times before over the last 16 billion years. Each of these cycles of Creation runs 20 times faster than the last one. The same amount of Creation is paced 20 times tighter. This is why time seems to be going so fast. It is not "time" but Creation itself that is accelerating. There are scheduled impulses on the part of Creation that are affecting global events today, and during the next nine years until the Mayan calendar ends near 2012. What Does the Mayan Calendar Mean to Us? It means that we will have the capability to see the patterns and flow of interest and action across humanity. Consciousness is becoming more aware of who and what it is. Consciousness is opening the door to see how we all work together - AS ONE - to manifest or create our own reality. If you are able to pay attention to the unfolding pattern of Creation, this is what you will be conscious of. The speed of change and the continued disclosure of the nature of Creation will become a stabilizing force in your existence - not a confusing tumble of cause and effect, accident and loss. There is a formula that goes like this: "Peace of Mind" comes when persons or a society are "centered." Centered-ness comes from certainty. Certainty comes from only one place: the recognition of patterns. So when a person or society has recognized a pattern as great as all of Creation, there is great certainty and centered-ness - and there is great Peace of Mind. This is our challenge: to educate humanity that the changes scheduled as per the Mayan calendar are for the uplifting of all. They are the sure steps of the continued evolution of Consciousness and the increase in personal choice of experience. Details of the Mayan Calendar The actual pattern of Creation described by the Mayan calendar looks like a pyramid which consists of nine levels or cycles. The bottom level or cycle in the pyramid represents the longest period of time, i.e., 16.4 billion years ago and is called the Cellular level of Creation (first live cells). The second level or cycle from the bottom of the pyramid is 20 times shorter, i.e., 840 million years ago and is called the Mammalian level of Creation (first live births). Continuing up the pyramid in this fashion with each level becoming 20 times shorter than the latter, the third level ,i.e., 41 million years ago is the Family level (family relationships). The fourth level, i.e., 2 million years ago, is the Tribal level (Homo Sapiens/tools). The fifth level, i.e., 102,000 years ago is the Cultural level (agriculture/religion). The sixth level, i.e., 5,116 years ago is the National level (sovereign nations/laws). The seventh level, i.e., 1755 AD is the planetary level (internet/global economy). The eighth level, January 4, 1999, is the Galactic level (ethical considerations). And the ninth level, i.e., February 10, 2011, is the Universal level (conscious co-creation). Here is a quick run through of the previous cycles and the consciousness that each level produced: Cellular cycle - beginning 16.4 billion years ago, developed the consciousness of Action/Reaction. Mammalian cycle - beginning 820 million years ago, developed the consciousness of Stimulus/Response. Familial cycle - beginning 41 million years ago, developed the consciousness of Stimulus/Individual Response. Tribal cycle - beginning 2 million years ago, developed the consciousness of Similarities/Differences. Cultural cycle - beginning 102,000 years ago, developed the consciousness of Reasons. National cycle - beginning in the year 3115 B.C., developed the consciousness of Law. Planetary cycle - beginning in the year 1755 A.D., developed the consciousness of Power. Galactic cycle - beginning January 5, 1999, developing the consciousness of Ethics. Universal cycle - beginning February 10, 2011, will be developing the unlimited ability of Conscious Co-Creation. Looking at the timing and the product of each of the nine cycles listed above, we can see an orderly progression of the development of consciousness and our abilities to interact with the universe. During the First cycle, all of the physical laws, chemical compounds, star fields, then solar systems and planets were developed. In the Second cycle, individual cells which were the product of the Cellular cycle started developing stimulus/response and the survival mechanism. Stimulus/response differs from action/reaction in the amount of consciousness present. The Third cycle was the recognition of individual consciousness and the establishment of the family relationship (recognition of individuals) rather than a herd, school or flock mentality. In the Fourth cycle, consciousness developed the tool, which we call "The Mind" to detect the similarities and differences in our experience. During the Fifth cycle, the leading edge of consciousness was developing reasons for any and every thing. These “Shared Reasons,” are the basis of all culture. In the Sixth cycle, the concept of law or right and wrong developed. In the Seventh cycle, which is from 1755 A.D. to present, we have been gathering power derived from natural laws. Each time that this pattern has repeated it has done so 20 times faster than the previous cycle. This quite handily explains why time seems to be speeding up. Time is not speeding up. It is creation itself that is speeding up with more and more happening in less and less time. We now know exactly where we are in this repeating pattern. This information makes it possible to put forth educated guesses as to the content of our future. This is similar to using a map when you are traveling. In this case, we now have a roadmap of time, consciousness and events. Our newsletter, The 3rd Night News, is intended to present insights as to what the Mayan calendar predicts our consciousness will be experiencing. As of January 5, 1999 we started the Galactic cycle which is the 8th of 9 levels of consciousness described by the Mayan calendar. Each of the stages or days and nights of this cycle last for 360 days each. We are now, as of December 10, 2003, in the 360-day section called the 3rd Night. This section will end on December 4, 2004. On December 5, 2004, we will begin what is called the 4th day of this Galactic cycle. In the rest of this article, I will be discussing what the Mayan calendar indicates our experience will be during the 3rd Night. It is now, during the 8th Level - Galactic cycle, that the consciousness of ethics has come forward and can be seen to be further organizing the powers that now exist to ensure the continued survival and evolution of the human race and our playground Mother Earth. So here we are with Ethics overriding Power in this 8th - Galactic consciousness cycle. What we see around us in the world and the society in which we live, is the exposure of lie after Powerful lie built on top of layers of lies. Uncovering a lie enables the TRUTH. While this can be very disorienting or disquieting it is very much an exercise of consciousness and should be recognized as such. As this process continues we will come to fully realize that each of us individually is the basis of truth. You are the truth (you the spiritual being) and whatever you have experienced are only reflections. About two months ago, I received an insight concerning the timing of the Galactic cycle's - 7 Days and 6 Nights. It came to me that since each of these days and nights consisted of 360 days and since a clock face is also a 360 degree measuring device, that the two could be used together to show the processions of the Galactic cycle as “hours.” 1 Day is 24 hours, I simply divided 360 by 24, which equals 15. That means that every 15 days that happened on the Gregorian calendar, are a one “hour” tick on the face of an a.m./p.m. 24-hour clock of the Galactic cycle’s 3rd Night. Now what we can do is look back at the previous 3rd Night and see what took place at each “hour” to get a good read on what we might experience during this 3rd Night. Each of the “hours” during the previous Planetary Cycle, running from 1755, were 300 days long each, that is they were 20 times longer than the current 15 day hours. So what does this mean to us? This can best be understood by using the metaphor of planting a seed. During the First Day there is the seed itself--an inception, a new beginning or impetus to change or flow in a new direction where new perceptions become available. That if followed by the First Night which is an opportunity to apply the enlightenment just received from Creation's flow. This would be the germination of the seed planted in the dark soil or the developments of new points of view. The Second Day is when duality is put on display. The seed sprouts up out of the ground and displays two leaves. The essential duality is always a new viewpoint that is overriding the "old" consciousness. As it has come down in human history, this has always been a time of civil turmoil. We have just completed the Second Night of the Galactic cycle from December 19, 2001, to December 14, 2002. The Second Night is a period of dark when polarized factions come to blows over their differences. The Third Day is another period of Light. The seed's root system develops and the second set of leaves will be a permanent part of the plant. It is the establishment of the new consciousness as viable. In human history lies or failed systems are disclosed so that progress is not blocked. Hold onto your hat as the truths pour forth from mid 2002 through most of 2003. The Third Night is another period of Dark. The seedling set of leaves are dropped from the plant as another set of leaves spring from the top. These are at 90 degrees from the last set. In human history failed systems have been jettisoned, usually by force, during this section. The Fourth Day, another period of Light and in a plant's life, the tap root grows deep to firmly attach the plant while the stock thickens and branches form. It is a period of expansion of the foundations laid. In human history the "new" point of view and way of doing things takes dominance. For instance the empire of Greece was built during this section. The Fourth Night is a period of Dark once again or the application of new procedures. During this time a plant is multiplying its leaves and root system like mad. In human history it has usually been a period of rebuilding and a time of healing. The Fifth Day is a period of Light and, in fact, is the brightest period of light in the entire cycle. In a plant's life this is when new chemicals are produced that carry the message to form buds. In human history, it was this section when Art was invented, the message of Jesus moved over the earth, Mr. Einstein discovered the theory of relativity and when America rose to world power with the victory of WWI. The Fifth Night or period of dark that follows is also the darkest period of each cycle.. In a plant's life this is the growth of the bud. In your history, this was puberty. In all of human history this has been a time of great physical hardship or major conflicts, i.e., the Ilionian Ice Age, the Neanderthals going extinct, Rome falling, and WWII are glaring examples. The Sixth Day we return to a period of "Enlightenment." This is the time of flowers for the plant. For you personally, it was adolescence. In human history this was the creation of the first tools, the first attempts at agriculture and constructed shelter, the Renaissance and, most recently, the Flower Children Movement of the 60's. The Sixth Night, one last period of Dark in the cycle follows. In the plant's life the flowers wilt and die setting the stage for fruit development or of seedpods that will dry. This is what happened to the Maya civilization right on queue. Throughout human history there have been conflicts and revolts during this period, the most recent of these having been the Viet Nam War. The Seventh Day is once again a period of Light, a time of readiness for something new and different, a time of ascension or going from one level to the next higher level. The plant spreads the seeds or drops the fruit to begin again a thousand times over. In human history it was during these repeating sections that Consciousness developed Homo Sapiens, agriculture and domesticated herds, signed treaties to establish the sovereignty of nations and their people, and put up the Internet thereby creating a planetary consciousness in 1992. This pattern of Creation, an action plan, can be seen happening everywhere in the universe--from subatomic particles to galaxies. Over and over: "As above, so below." Notice that we go from a Light section to another new Light section. In other words, after the seventh day, there is no seventh night? We begin the next cycle with another day. So, you see the deck is stacked. Creation is on our side and always has been. It is also important to note that this chart in no way conflicts with either the Creationist or Evolutionist points of view. In fact, it marries the two. No matter how uncomfortable that concept may be at the outset, the facts that Creation has evolved are indisputable because that evolution and schedule continues today. In fact, the evolution of all consciousness has accelerated to such a degree that we can watch it unfold step by step as in time-lapse photography. To "shed even more light" (pardon the pun), on the events that occur during the days and nights of a particular cycle, let's use the Sixth Cycle or National Cycle as an example and use religious development as our "event" taking place during each one of the 13 sections or Seven Days and Six Nights. Only, in this instance, we are going to focus primarily on the Days of this cycle since the Days are the periods of enlightenment when new perceptions are gained by Consciousness. The First Day of the National Cycle occurred from 3115 BC to 2721 BC. This was the time that the Sumerians worshipped An or Anu. Anu was seen as an omnipotent Creator God who had to share his space with a host of household, workplace, weather and nature gods of all kinds. The Second Day of the National Cycle occurred from 2326 BC to 2938 BC. During this section Abraham moved to Cana in 2300 BC. The Third Day of the National Cycle was from 1538 to 1144. This was the time of Moses and the beginning of Monotheism (The Truth coming into sharper focus). The Fourth Day of the National Cycle was from 749 BC to 355 BC. Isaiah was from the year 748 BC; Buddha from 552 BC; Confucius from 551 BC; Zoroaster from 550 BC; Pythagoras from 550 BC, Deuteron- Isaiah from 550 BC. The Fifth Day of the National cycle was from 40 AD to 434 AD. During this period Paul took the message of Jesus to the world and Christianity was born. Buddhism started in China in 60 AD and the Talmudic and Judaism religions began at this time. In 40 AD Quetzalcoatl, the Maya Creator god, appeared in Teotihuacán as a Christ-like personage with a very similar message. (The Fifth Night of the National Cycle occurred from 434 AD to 829 and was when Islam was inspired in 632 AD.) The Sixth Day of the National Cycle was from 829 AD to 1223 AD. At this time there was a general expansion of Christianity to Northern and Eastern Europe. The Crusades and the development of the Papacy happened here as well as the second Quetzalcoatl where in the Maya/Toltec city of Chichen Itza walked the earth. (The Sixth Night was when the second wave of Islam came in from 1223 AD to 1617 AD.) The Seventh Day of the National Cycle occurred from 1617 AD to 2011 AD. During this period, Christianity expanded once again starting with the Pilgrims in 1620 AD.) We could go through other events such as scientific principles, communication methods, the development of political ideals, and we would see that the developments in each field conform to this same schedule. In fact, everything we know of what happened when follows this schedule. There is no mistake. This is no 16.4 billion year-long coincidence! Future Implications So, what are the implications for our future? Let's take another look at where we fall on the Mayan calendar. As we have shown earlier, we are now in the Eighth Level or Galactic Cycle of the calendar. Each of the 13 sections or each Day and Night consists of 360 days. And we are now entering the Third Day. What typically happens during the Third Day? If we look at the Third Day in each of the other cycles, we can see that a very important shift in the progression of the evolution of our consciousness takes place. Remember, this is where in the plant the development of a root system and second set of leaves will become a part of the plant. In human history it is during this section that lies or failed systems are disclosed so that progress is not blocked. It is where truths are going to pour forth from mid 2002 to 2003. During the Cellular Cycle's Third Day, Consciousness on the level of action/reaction or atomic mind, was receiving the inspiration to organize from clouds of stars into galaxies. During the Mammalian Cycle's Third Day, there was the Cambrian Explosion, an underwater explosion of evolution where soft-tissue animals were evolving into all sorts of hard-shelled animals at a tremendous rate. The truth about the use of calcium as a survival tactic became known to Consciousness at this time. During the Familial Cycle's Third Day, the monkeys that had shown up in the First Day of this cycle evolved into the first tailless apes, Pliopithecus, Drophecus and Ramapithecus appeared. This was a direct step away from "all fours and a tail living" and toward Homo erectus. During the Tribal Cycle's Third Day, Neanderthal man came into being all around the Mediterranean and dotting Europe. During the National Cycle's Third Day, there was Moses and the Ten Commandments as well as geometry and astrology developed by the Babylonians. The Book of the Dead was collected in Egypt, the Stonehenge was built, and obelisks in Egypt were used as clocks. It was the start of the Bronze Age and the four basic elements became known in India as earth, air, fire and water. In other words, certain facts came out during these times that were very basic to our understanding of life today. During the Planetary Cycle's Third Day, there was the Abolitionist Movement to end slavery, the first telegraph messages, the first bike and first steam-powered vehicle. Armand Fizeau discovered the speed of light. Carl Steinheil built the first electric clock. Railroads were complete across all major countries and the first negative photography was done. In short, the Industrial Revolution gook a giant step forward with the advent of electricity and steam power. Also the discovery of gold in California started a migration from all over the world that really set humanity in motion. In sum, the Third Day of each cycle, including our current Galactic cycle, is the statement of the truth for the coming changes in evolution of the organization, structure, function, innovation, knowledge, power and to come soon) the ethics of Consciousness in our three dimensional universe. The foundations of these changes are built during the Fourth Day of each cycle and manifested on the Fifth Day of each cycle. During the Sixth Day of each cycle there are the blooming or vast advancements of the intent of the cycle. Finally, during the Seventh Day of each cycle a new cycle is born to begin the next stage of evolution's overall intent. The intent of the Evolution of Consciousness is to rejoin our Creator as co-creators in exactly his image, as himself, as our true selves. During the Galactic Cycle's Third Day we will be seeing the true value of ethics and integrity like never before. The truth will be in your face at every turn. "Good" truth and "bad" truth will be on display everywhere as well as the most blatant lies you could ever imagine choosing to believe. Consciousness is getting an up-grade and we will be able to watch it happen. As in any birth or rapid growth there are some pains, so expect them. This is the time that your intuition will be held up and shown to be trustworthy. It will be a time when Truth and Ethics in all situations will become the most important factor. And whether or not that truth is told and ethics are present will be just as important as any outside appearances, circumstances, or events. Basically we are now going to be given a clear view of the final choice of a future - EVOLUTION or EXTINCTION. We all have free will. We all have the choice. Most of us have already made that choice by the beginning of this Galactic Consciousness Cycle on January 4, 1999. That's right. You can see who has chosen which in your own personal and business relationships, can't you? There's a Train Wreck A-Comin' As we have said, we have just gone through the Second Night of the Galactic Cycle, which contained the impact between the new consciousness that is now running and the previous consciousness cycle. The previous cycle is called the Planetary consciousness cycle because it produced a planetary consciousness with the development of telecommunications and the internet. This whole cycle of 256 years has been about the development of POWER. From 1755 AD up to today, Consciousness has been applied to developing means of empowerment over the environment and each other with machines and weapons of mass destruction. This is commonly known as the Industrial Revolution. The new Galactic consciousness cycle which began on January 4, 1999, is one based on ETHICS, the definition of which is "the deft application of power." At the outset, these two types of consciousness were directly opposed. There will be a train wreck. Once the pieces have been reassembled, the power that we now have at our disposal will be applied in an ethical manner for the benefit of all, not just a few. Those few are desperate and running from the light of new consciousness. The Second Night (June 17, 2002) was the point at which we started moving toward the day. The Third Day then will demonstrate an unfolding of TRUTH - the truth about the extreme measures used by those in power to remain in those positions will be fully exposed. The Third Night (December 9, 2003)is about application of the TRUTH or truths. The truths, in this case, will bring about the dissolving of Nations as a power base or as a reason for contention anywhere. Put another way, during the Cultural cycle there were certain groups of people whose reason for living was to be Israelis; Palestinians; Hindus, Moslems. Now, there is nothing wrong with possessing cultural beliefs, unless you believe that your cultural belief is the ONLY belief and that all other beliefs are bunk. America is a plot of ground no more important than Africa or Asia. We should have no more privilege than anyone else on earth. Nationalism is becoming extinct. It happened to the dinosaurs. And it happened to the Neanderthals. The wheels of the power train are going to leave the tracks. This is a process, however, and not to be taken personally. Also, be careful not to assume an attitude that some of us are better than others. It only means that the people in power are going to get more and more frantic as these changes occur and will either have to change their ways or be run over. It is a fact that ethical consciousness must be in place before we can go into the consciousness of co-creation. Right now, do you trust your neighbor to be able to create anything he wants in your back yard? Obviously we are not there yet. A New Question All of Consciousness has had one goal in its evolution, to discover what it is NOT. Consciousness experiences the universe by comparison. The basic comparison is that the conscious is NOT whatever was experienced. For at least 100,000 years mankind has been pursuing the question, "Who am I?" Or, "Why am I here?" and "What am I doing?" That question has been used by the Church and State to bind people to some standard or another, to some identity or another, to one belief system or another. Consciousness is none of these things. There are only the considerations of Consciousness. We are not our bodies, our minds, our jobs, cars, relationships, nor our reputations or even our aspirations. As the Mayan calendar clearly shows, Creation is speeding up and presenting more and more of itself in each moment. This means that more and more is possible to be experienced and compared by Consciousness. The Mayan calendar ends on October 28, 2011, by which time Creation's exposure rate will have accelerated such that it presents itself in total, all in one moment thus ending any and all considerations of time and space as any barrier to Consciousness. The path to this moment leads us through the Galactic consciousness cycle that we are currently in to the Universal consciousness cycle that begins on February 10, 2011. In this 260 day period, Consciousness will be experiencing more and more of what it is NOT until the certainty sets in that we are indeed - NO THING! Start answering the new question, "What am I not?" today and watch your existence change forever. Let's look at this process in a little more detail to help us realize more fully what is happening in this time and space. In the past, you may have had the possibility of only three things happening in a given moment, i.e., a good outcome, a bad outcome, and an outcome somewhere in between. At present, there are more and more opportunities available to you, more and more choices. Creation is speeding up. This will continue until it is totally possible to create any reality you can imagine! In comparison to 180 years ago, today we're wizards. In the future, there will be even more possibilities. Consider teleportation, genetic research, nanoscale technologies and the prospect of molecular computing. Life will be very different. People will be losing their jobs because by the time we have produced a product and get ready to market it, it will have become obsolete. Sound familiar? There will be massive changes in the way we do business. Imagine a person 100 years ago trying to your job today, coupled with the changes in our economy will come changes in our monetary system. The beginning of the Seventh Day of the Planetary cycle in 1992 brought the beginning of a very long period of uninterrupted growth in the West and especially the US. This period of growth actually took place in a situation that is new in the history of the world economy in that there was no gold standard in effect. In the 90's, economic policy seemed very successful as a number of innovations in the computer industry and telecommunications created a mental confidence in a growth that would go on forever. We should notice a parallel here between the Days ruled by Ometeotl in both the National and Planetary cycles. During the Seventh Day of the National cycle, paper money came into use in the West, which meant an abstraction from real values. When the Seventh Day of the Planetary cycle began, as a further step, this paper money lost all relations to real values - in this case, gold. In this way, the world economy has come to be based on a monetary system, which, as we concluded earlier, is basically worthless. What is behind this pattern to begin with? It is well known that the purpose of disconnecting the value of money from gold when economic depressions begin is exactly to keep the wheels of industry turning with artificial means (disconnecting from real values). What is less well known is that these depressions came about as results of the mental effects of the Nights in the Mayan calendar. As human industrial creativity increases at the beginning of new Days, on the other hand, there is a risk of overheating and hence there has then been a tendency to reinstate the gold standard to keep things grounded. Regardless, the effects of abolishing the gold standard for long periods, and a number of mechanisms in banking that I will not go into, are that today's monetary system is a mental construct floating in the air based on the "confidence" people have in it. Simply stated, we began eons ago by exchanging things of value, i.e., sticks and rocks. During the Cultural cycle we advanced to prettier rocks, i.e., gold, silver, gems. During the National cycle we got paper money and a banking system. Now we have an economy based on electrons and plastic cards. The medium of exchange has gotten less and less physical. The stock market goes up and down by how people are THINKING about it! What will be the medium of exchange in the future? It will have evolved into a spiritual exchange to that which is admired. Particles of admiration. Love. That's all you were ever doing in the first place. How much was a blanket worth? As much as you admired it. Its true value was based upon your admiration. Humanity will be investing in what is admirable and nothing else. Your TRUTH, your ETHICS, your INTEGRITY is what will sustain you through all the changes. Therefore, you must have the courage to create what you wish to experience. You will be able to take advantage of the opportunities. Those people without integrity, will bring upon themselves what their own consciousness is focused on, their own FEAR and their own JUDGEMENT. That's what's going to happen down here - JUDGEMENT DAY. All this boils down to decision time. You can decide to stay on the power train and hunt down the almighty dollar. Or, you can choose integrity. New planets by the hundreds will be discovered in our galaxy which are revolving around other suns planets that support life. We have the planetary consciousness with the internet of now being able "to meet the neighbors." And we will as soon as we get over this power trip and get an ethical consciousness. Can you see us going to other galaxies before then? All we would do is "kick butt." No, we're not ready yet. What was the lesson of Y2K back on January 5, 1999? The lesson was that maybe our power systems aren't all that trustworthy - not all that real. That everything could have disappeared in a blink of an eye. The message from Consciousness was that our ability to handle change is what counts. We, not our systems, are responsible for what happens. Ethical truths will be fully exposed during the Fourth Day, and put into effect during the Fourth Night (November 2005) and the application of this truth will not be so very gentle. During the National cycle, during the Fifth Day, Christ showed up and gave us the consciousness that we were Divine - like the rulers in Rome. We didn't need anybody to create policies for us. In the most recent Fifth Day we discovered the blueprint of our physical reality. We live in an infinite universe where everything is possible. We have both the blueprint and the proof. We already have teleportation. We already have daily telepathy. We're in an age of nano computers where we can program nanos to create molecular size computers. We can teleport light. Things are happening faster than they thought ahead of schedule. Genetics all the human DNA studies have been completed 15 years ahead of schedule. Huge corporations are teetering and will fall because they can't help us. By the time we research and develop a product, it's extinct. We're dealing in physical stuff. However, Consciousness is not physical. The possibilities of Consciousness are not limited by time and space. During the flowering of the plant, during your time of puberty, humanity was experiencing the Renaissance in France. It is a time of the Flower Children, God of Flowers, King Arthur and the Round Table, and the Anasazi's Golden Time. Maya, as well, flowered. Flowers died to become seed pods or fruit. Development during the Sixth Night dies out and spews out all the seeds on the Seventh Day. After decision time, there will be no more "I can't do this," no more control over anybody else. Then and only then can we "meet the neighbors," and they can't get to us either. The whole three dimensional universe is going to be going through this at the same time. Other dimensions have already gone through this. We're separated on purpose through the plan. Technology will go extinct and Spirit will take over. There will be no more sickness, lack, hunger. Consciousness is already creating this. We will be experiencing this. During the Sixth Night, a 360 day period, we will be experiencing BLISS, liberation, and be in a period of experimentation and getting ready for what is to come. From 2006-2011 there will be a time of healing. It is a time of manifestation, of completion. During the Seventh Day, we won't necessarily be on the planet. We will be able to travel anywhere. We will have entered the Universal cycle. The last 260 days of this 360 day period we are supposed to get up to speed to experience all of infinity with our consciousness. This concept doesn't fit into our brain yet. Would you like to be out of debt? There will be a different economy where there is only abundance. You will possess the confirmed knowledge that you are Divine. You will be able to demonstrate that everything is possible. There will be the complete absolution of any limit. Currently technology is our ladder to Consciousness. But the internet and television are soon going to be outpaced. Have you noticed that things are already changing rapidly? That stuff is falling off? Stuff like jobs, positions, identities, spouses. This is because we're getting a running start at becoming God - of entering a state of BLISS. October 28, 2011 will be like trying to go through the eye of a needle. Remember the Bible story where Jesus said, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven."? Where this saying comes from is that in ancient cities there were robbers on camel routes. The walls to the cities were high, the doorways narrow. You had to unload your camel to get through the eye of the needle. And what this means to us is that we must get unloaded from who we thought we were. We are not a machinist, not a computer specialist, etc. We must ask ourselves: "What am I NOT?" I'm not my house, not my car, not my relationships. We are NO THING. Once we realize this, it will be pretty easy to go through the eye of a needle then. We are raising our vibrations to change our cellular memory. What you pay attention to is what will occur. We will be co-creators of new reality. We will not be disempowered. To the contrary; we will be able to empower ourselves. In this process, remember that Creation is totally on our side. There is more opening to Consciousness in this process than there is difficulty. Remember, there are more days than nights. There will be dramatic changes to Mother Earth. There will be more drastic weather as TRUTH comes forward. In the application of the Truth, we will feel the effects of the sun, of earthquakes, volcanoes, drought, of these natural changes by degrees, stages. It will take such things as natural disasters to get us to stop fighting and stop fighting quickly. There will be new mountain ranges, new structures. Earth is going to change dramatically. It has done so before, but then it was a slower process. Remember, the Earth's surface used to be under water. There is evidence of shells in our cliffs. Where Are You Safe? You will be safe if you stay focused on your INTUITION and look to it for guidance. Think of 9/11 and the people who got through this and similar disasters. They got through because they KNEW the right thing to do. And so will you. It might be wise to check out where people like the Hopi are and be where they are. Maybe they know something we don't (laughter). There will be places that are not going to be touched much. Stay away from cities and away from the coasts. Our coastlines will be shrinking due to global warming, the glaciers melting quickly. Water levels will be rising quickly on the coasts. If you have coastal property, SELL! (laughter) We cannot emphasize too much that it is important to remain detached and to not get caught up in the drama that is unfolding all around you. It is so important to remember especially at times of great dramatic impact that your safety lies within. Your answers lie within. You can access this knowing at any time. It is a feeling that you feel. Something will feel "right" or it will feel "off" or "wrong." Trust your feelings. Don't let anyone talk you out of them. Deception will be everywhere and on the increase from its present levels. That is why we emphasize that you go within for your "news." Everything is being manipulated to such an extent that nothing you read or hear is untouched, except possibly some of the material that comes through the clearest channels. Your inner knowing is your best armor against deceptions. If something does not feel altogether true for you, TRUST that feeling. You must also trust in the plan for your life. Your life will bring you into perfect contact with the experiences needed for the fulfillment of your life's plan. Even those things that you might consider painful, unpleasant, or undesirable are still moving you toward the goal of completion. If unpleasant feelings arise, allow them to FLOW through you. Do not RESIST or block them. This does not mean you have to act on them. Just allow them to flow through you. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, just close your eyes and focus on your breath (unless, of course, you are doing something like driving a car). Deliberately take slow, deep breaths until you have regained a sense of your own self and are calm, grounded, and centered. Then very slowly open your eyes again and let yourself remain calm, grounded, and centered. Allow yourself to witness what is going on around you without getting caught up in it. There is nothing you can't handle if you remain rooted in the moment, in what is also called the NOW. Think on the principle of the gyroscope. It is a centered axle with change all around it. The faster the change, the more stable the gyroscope. This is the basic benefit of the new information on the schedule of Creation. It allows a person to achieve the recognition of pattern, on a scale unprecedented in our human history. If you are able to pay attention to the unfolding pattern of Creation, this is what you will be conscious of. The speed of change and the continued disclosure of the nature of Creation will become a stabilizing force in your existence. Our challenge, your challenge (if you choose to accept it), is to educate humanity that the changes scheduled as per the Mayan calendar are for the uplifting of all. They are the sure steps of the continued evolution of Consciousness, the increase in personal choice of experience and a return of personal absolute sovereignty. It is not the "end of times," the coming of a disastrous "event," but rather the beginning of a New Age, an evolving of a new Consciousness.
