To me, meditation doesn’t represent a time to contemplate and cleanse the mind. Rather, it represents a choice between (a) facing the judgment of my father and (b) immediately turning into my mother. Yes, that’s an irrational and self-created decision. But it’s one that paralyzes me and has led me to recruit an army of therapists who will now be able to drive Jaguars for years to come.

December 21, 2012: Today the 5125 year Maya Calendar cycle came to an end. We took the time to set new intentions and to celebrate the beginning of the next era. We awoke just before sunrise and journeyed to one of the oldest Mayan sites in Central America, Cahal Pech Maya Ruins located in Belize. This [...]

Now that we are still here and alive after the whole Mayan calendar doom and gloom scenario, what does it feel like to begin 2013? I ask myself that in meditation, while running, taking out the trash, petting many dogs on the street, making a one-bowl meal, sitting at the computer, drinking some green tea, [...]

I woke up the other day with a startling revelation: I need to be at Chichen Itza on December 21, 2012. Chichen Itza is perhaps the most important Mayan Temple. It’s in the Yucatan Peninsula, two hours inland from Cancun, Mexico. December 21, 2012 is the day the earth passes across the equator of the Milky Way galaxy. It is the [...]

Today was supposed to not happen. Day 1 We are all not dead! Amazing! What did the Mayans know? Better look outside the window and check, for what, aliens? Submerged coastline? Triffids? All I see is the postman. He drops the mail in my mailbox without any scaly tongue doing the work of his hands. [...]

When we are all still here on December 22nd, 2012, can we please recognize that there have been hundreds of apocalyptic predictions, and that as with those, this one was meaningless?

Source: Uploaded by user via Maja on Pinterest The end is near. The time is night. The poles are reversing. The ice caps are melting. The globe is warming. The Mayan Calendar is ending.

The last great shift was over 600,000 years ago. Perhaps, to many people, the idea of shifting from a masculine outlook to a feminine perspective is catastrophic. Truthfully, who among us likes to surrender power and authority? According to the indigenous wisdom keepers, the last large 28,000-year cycle has been overshadowed by the masculine. Commonly [...]

I hear people saying the shooting that occurred in Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday is unthinkable. They say they can’t wrap their minds around it. I say it is unthinkable only in the sense that the idea of the world ending is unthinkable, when you come right down to it. Before Friday’s shooting, the [...]

Here’s what I tell people (myself included): just make it through these next six weeks or so; it’s just the way this year is going. We are experiencing the end of the world, but not the world in general—the world in specific. Our individual worlds are ending and I’m afraid it may get worse in the next few weeks before it gets better. If we can weather the changes we’re going through, then we all may just be okay. Not just okay. We may just become better versions of ourselves.

Dear graduates, Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak to you here in the hallowed halls of my imagination, in this remarkable place where iconoclasts like me are asked to give speeches at major universities. This is a tremendous honor. As I’m sure you all know, commencement means beginning. The word is synonymous [...]

We’re a quarter way into 2012 and so many shifts are happening. Have you noticed that all around us, people are in various states of transitions? Changes that normally take a few years or a lifetime are happening faster than ever. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed as we’re being called to our highest truth. For [...]

We need to acquire the power of stillness as we journey through the Year of the Water Dragon and approach the end of the Mayan calendar, which will occur on December 21, 2012, because great shifts are predicted to happen swiftly on individual and collective levels.

Everything that makes up my body today was once a breath of my ancestors. They were once mountains, and one day you and I will become a drop of ocean. But, this is our stuff, our bones, and skin, and sweat. What of our souls? What of who we are?

“Literally.” (and we know how that goes) “Salvation, free of charge”…7 Day Adventists, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists…enjoy painful punishment of hell for all eternity. “Pretty mean-spirited Christ.” “So what…fundamentalism is a problem in all religions.” “The collapse of the economic system is not the work of God…it’s the result of…” “…No, there’s no point saving [...]

The clocks are ticking and 2011 is about to end and it’s about to be 2012. For some, this is a big deal.
A lot of people, from various walks of life, think that something big is about to happen. In the past year, a fundamentalist Christian radio personality name Harold Camping got not one, but two, 15 minutes of fame for casting predictions that the world would end within 2011 – and a lot of his followers maxed out their credit cards, sold their life’s possessions, and one woman slit her children’s throats and tried to kill herself in preparation.

After all, everything in the Universe is vibration and time does not exist, but only to measure space. Time and space are the dimension we live in. Your awareness of WHERE you are and WHEN you are there represent the present moment YOU are in.

The Mayan Calendar gives us an opportunity to observe who we are on a daily basis under the cyclic influence of Nature energies, always changing, so that with this understanding we actually can use the one and only gift that makes us humans: conscious free will to manifest creation…and begin again.

This information is primarily derived from the work of Carl Johan Calleman and Ian Xel Lungold. I’ve tried often to impart this information in person.

World to End May 21, 2011?! If you haven’t been living under a rock lately, you will know that there are a lot of people who think that the world is going to end soon — either because of the Mayan calendar apparently ending in 2012, or because of the Apocalypse and the Rapture occurring [...]

We have been hearing for years all the hype around December 21, 2012. So what does it all mean, and why ask if December 21, 2010 is the real 2012? Contrary to what you may or may not know, all of the 2012 hype is actually based on profound science. Essentially, a phenomena that only happens (approximately) [...]

The world is ending. The world has always been ending. For as long as humanity has had creation myths, we’ve also had destruction myths. Old wine in a new skin, enter the destruction myth du jour. The End Times as we know them; the Apocalypse. “An Apocalypse (Greek; “lifting of the veil” or “revelation”) is [...]

How are you feeling today? Is your mind thinking at 1,000 miles per hour? Are you overwhelmed with the speed of life around you and the stress created by thinking about your bank account, your work, your politics, your disfunctional relationships, your illness and all the other “yours” of the modern life? Are you begging [...]
