Carl Calleman goes against the storied December 21, 2012 grain, insisting that the real end of the Mayan Calendar is October 28, 2011. I have no idea whether or not either date is correct, or even if there is a definite date that will mark the end of one age and the beginning of another. Seems to me things move along as processes.
On the other hand, as Dylan prophesized over 40 years ago, “something is happening.” I imagine even Mr. Jones realizes in his heart of hearts (and, no doubt, with a sense of sinking dread that he tries like hell to avoid or deny feeling) that humanity’s relationship with its home planet is on a collision course — so much so that we have reached the “end-times” of our rapacious use of Earth’s nonrenewable resources.
There’s an expectancy in the air, a sense of impending . . . what? Collapse? Doom? Resurgence? Celebration? Perhaps all four, and in that order, if we as individuals and as a species can manage to move through the entire birth process without getting stuck in fear. This from carlcalleman.com.
At the time of writing (July 31, 2011) we are at the beginning of the fifth day of the Ninth wave and then also rapidly approaching its end and the completion of all of the Mayan calendar on October 28, 2011. There are three more days (over a time period of three regular months) yet to go as the effects of the Ninth wave intensify in accordance with its high frequency of transformation to unity consciousness. While we may all have ideas of how this final transformation is going to take place no human knows the exact details of what is going to happen. We are sitting in the waiting room of the cosmic doctor and we do not know how He or She is going to treat this patient.
Throughout the shift points of this Ninth wave various initiatives have been taken for inspirational events and towards its culmination not only are events being planned for the midpoint (October 21, 2011) and end-point (October 28, 2011) of the seventh day, but also for the Gregorian date 11:11:11 (November 11, 2011). Even if the latter date is not based on the Mayan calendar, but on numerology, it gains its real meaning from this calendar and is the day for celebrating that we have made it through the end times and into the new world to be created afterwards. I encourage all such initiatives celebrating shift points, especially if they educate people more broadly in the true meaning of the Mayan calendar and its various days and nights. However, I also feel that there is a need for events that emphasize the work that we need to do at the current time. For this aspect of the process I feel that there is one shift point that deserves our full attention and this is the beginning of the sixth night. The reason is that the beginning of the sixth night on September 23, 2011, and its following few days, means a convergence of an energy shift in the Mayan calendar and the passage of the comet Elenin between the earth and the sun (and, if you like, the autumn equinox as well).
This little comet Elenin has attained an immense amount of attention on the Internet and is sometimes associated with more or less dire predictions. Thus, its name has been read as Extinction Level Event although it with equal justification may be read as El +Lenin (God + Anti-capitalist revolution) or Ellen In (the names Ellen, Helen or Elaine mean light) or El enin (God +Nine backwards referring to the completion of the divine plan of Nine Underworlds). All that we really know about it is however that it is synchronized with the end of the Mayan calendar on October 28, 2011. As part of this the Ninth wave, also called the Universal Underworld, brings a cosmic context to human life in a way that has not previously been the case. Human beings are in other words in the Universal Underworld about to become citizens of the universe, a consciousness shift that has led to a heightened interest in all things extraterrestrial. Yet, maybe this shift is primarily about us living up to our cosmic origin and the Cosmic Convergence is an invitation to fully experience this at the beginning of the sixth night. Thus, the word Cosmic is here more meant in its Mayan meaning as the all encompassing intelligence.
I feel it cannot be emphasized enough that the Mayan calendar is an expression of a truly cosmic, but also divine time plan. It is from this that we know that it is purposeful and benevolent. Many who fail to recognize that this calendar describes a divine plan developed by waves of seven days and six nights, may risk to end up in hopelessness or a belief that the world will come to an end. (The lack of connection to a divine plan is the reason that the false pop culture end date of the Mayan calendar, December 21, 2012 often has become associated with such thoughts.) It is the divine background of the plan described by the Mayan calendar that explains that nothing in the universe happens by accident. Everything plays a role for the fulfillment of the purpose of the cosmic plan, making it meaningful despite the hardships and challenges that we may expect in the time ahead. From such a perspective we may wonder what God is communicating to us through the comet Elenin especially in terms of what there is to do at the beginning of the sixth night, but also in the seventh day of the Ninth wave. After all, comets are prophesized to be part of the language that God is going to use to communicate with us in the end times.
Another thing that we know about the Ninth wave, and its sixth night and seventh day in particular, is that it brings about a polarity shift to unity consciousness as is illustrated in figure 1. Elenin may then also be seen as a messenger of the finality of this shift. Today, we often hear the idea of an impending pole shift, which goes back to psychics like Helena Blavatsky and Edgar Cayce. Yet, most, if not all, professional geoscientists would argue that there is no reason to expect a pole shift in the near future. Most likely then, since Blavatsky and Cayce were not familiar with the kind of polarity shifts that the different waves of the Mayan calendar bring about, and had no language to describe them, they simply mistook such shifts for an electromagnetic pole shift of the Earth. In favor of such an interpretation is for instance that Cayce predicted what he called a “pole shift” for the year 2000. This as we now know did not happen, but what did take place was a polarity shift of consciousness as the Eighth wave of the Mayan calendar was activated in 1999 and most likely this is what he saw in his trance state and mistook for a pole shift.
Time of activation
(Fig. 1) Different polarities of consciousness created by the five highest waves of the Mayan calendar.
Polarity shifts in consciousness take place in synchrony at several different levels of the universe – cosmic, galactic, heliospheric, planetary and human – at the times of shift points in the Mayan calendar. The Ninth wave that we are currently in is carries the polarity shift that creates unity consciousness. We then need to ask what we are to do, if anything, if we as individuals want to be part of this polarity shift and remove all dark filters from our minds. After all, we only have the direct power to transform ourselves and then hope that it spreads along the lines of the great Indian leader and sage Mahatma Gandhi, who said: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
What, more specifically, would this imply for the Cosmic Convergence? A general rule of the Mayan calendar waves is that its night and day energies relate to one another as inner preparation to outer manifestation. This may especially be true when it comes to the last such pair of energies in the entire creation scheme, the sixth night and seventh day of the Ninth wave starting September 23 and October 11, respectively. This alternation between energies would mean that the sixth night should lend itself favorably to inner work like prayer, contemplation or meditation, whereas the seventh day would lend itself better to global ceremonies, which externalize the inner changes that have been brought in the sixth night. Ceremonies and rituals in a sacred context are powerful tools to externalize the rearrangement of our inner landscape.
The ninth wave
This diagram indicates the motion of the “wave” of energies belonging to the ninth wave and the related dates as to when these come into play. The relationships of the comets Honda and Elenin to the Seven days and six nights of the Ninth wave of the Mayan calendar. A is the comet Honda’s closest distance form the Earth. B shows the time of passage of Elenin between the sun and the earth and C is its closest distance to the Earth.
At point B in figure 2 I thus feel that the comet Elenin signals to us that we should surrender our egos to the all encompassing cosmic intelligence and also that this is our last chance to be part of the polarity shift to unity consciousness, or if we like, Oneness or God Consciousness. This will also be a test of the integrity of today’s evolutionary leaders, not to mention “2012 experts.” Elenin is a final wake up call that will be heard also by the many who know nothing about the Mayan calendar or how this expresses the divine plan. After all, the sixth night is the last energy when we can turn inward to prepare for the polarity shift that the wave is bringing. As the seventh day starts the new polarity is locked into position and generates its final manifestation.
This finality is partly why the Cosmic Convergence of September 23-26, 2011 is different from previous events, such as the Conscious Convergence of July 17-18, 2010, which also set the intention to manifest unity consciousness. In the Cosmic Convergence it will also be necessary to make an effort to see this intention manifested. This is a time for connecting with the divine, introspection and soul searching. A connection with the divine can be accomplished by intense prayers or by other spiritual practices. To stay aligned with the cosmic plan and be part of its polarity shift in consciousness I would then also like to suggest that the following commitments become the foundation of the Cosmic Convergence:
1/ Committing to consistently let divine guidance rather than our egos decide our actions and the direction of our lives.
2/ Declaring our independence from the dark side including surrendering the right to use the dark side to fight the dark side in others. http://www.youtube.com/user/forunity#p/u/2/pkVHYQF
L2Xk (In my own understanding the dark side is not some kind of eternal dark force, but anything that results form the darker filters of the lower waves as can be seen in Figure 1)
The Cosmic Convergence is thus fundamentally about making sure that we ourselves as individuals are the change that we want to see in the world. This may be very uncomfortable if we have much of our past unprocessed. It is then clearly not about putting the blame for the state of affairs on our planet on other people or forces. It is about taking personal responsibility. I think we here need to go deep into ourselves and see where we as individuals have contributed to hurting others or the nature of our planet. We have become quite used to complaining about the violence and wars in the world or the threats to its natural state. Yet, it is one thing to complain while secretly blaming others, or simply “the way things are” and something totally different to see how we as individuals have made choices that have contributed to the global deterioration. The idea here is to see and acknowledge such instances and choices in our lives and yet not get stuck in guilt, but rather find a path to healing through a corrective course of action. Since usually we have suppressed or numbed ourselves to any personal responsibility for the course of events on the planet we may actually have to pray for being reminded of such instances in the past. Hence, if we truly want to create a polarity shift in ourselves and so for instance are willing to embrace the commitments above it is a natural consequence that we do the necessary soul searching as we recognize how we may have failed to live up to these commitments in the past. If we do not do so aspects of the dark filters will continue to dominate us and the polarity shift will not be total.
The Cosmic Convergence is thus about the participants taking responsibility for the transformation to unity consciousness and doing so in a committed way. Granted, these may be difficult tasks, but again, if we are not to bring about this shift to unity consciousness in ourselves, who will? Hence, the Cosmic Convergence is really about providing an opportunity for us at least to commit to irreversibly bring about a shift in consciousness polarity in ourselves. While it may be difficult to immediately live up to such a commitment it will if it is taken seriously have powerful consequences On the benefit side a thing to ponder is that in order to receive the appropriate guidance into the new world it is possible that such a profound commitment to unity consciousness is indeed necessary.
On my own part I will at the occasion of this event be participating in a peace festival in France together with Mayan and Hopi elders (http://www.lothlorienfestival.com/EN) where we will meditate around it. Because of the nature of the inner work required I feel that the Cosmic Convergence may equally well be observed individually or, ideally, in small groups that provide a safe environment for sharing. I recommend that we process our past and ourselves in the present moment in an air of introspection, healing and corrective action drawing on the collective energy of the observance of the Cosmic Convergence around the globe.
A common component in it may be the lightning of candlelights as a sacred enactment of these commitments. Participating groups and individuals in the Cosmic Convergence may of course chose their own expressions, but the commitment to the transformation to unity consciousness should be the common denominator. In the Cosmic Convergence it is for us to surrender to whatever will be required from us. To live up to our commitment The presence of the comet Elenin will give a natural connection to the cosmic dimension in this event and at the same time add to our experience of a common destiny of humanity. It will be in this large scale context that we need to make the commitment to be part of the polarity shift to unity consciousness. Every person who makes a such makes a great difference and spreads the light and the hope to those around her. This may be all the more needed if indeed the times will be challenging to our comfort. The Cosmic Convergence, September 23-26, 2011 is meant as a solemn and humble event allowing people of unity consciousness to connect on a very deep level wherever they are on our planet.
I feel this is really the last chance of humanity and that the day of reckoning is here. I feel that a commitment to the polarity shift to unity consciousness is not only a passport to the new world to be born, but also the only hope for the world to survive. The dark filters have been ruling humanity for millennia and provide no way out. If human beings do not make such a commitment we really have no reason to expect that the world will survive. I thus want to encourage everyone to do their utmost to spread this message and encourage others to solemnly make a commitment to shift to unity consciousness. We are the ones that we have been waiting for. And it is entirely up to us. If we are looking to see our greatness, we should see it not in denial, or at all cost avoid anything that may cause fear, but in the courage to face squarely what we have done to this creation as it manifests on this earth. The Ninth wave indeed brings a field change on the cosmic level that we may become part of, but it will not happen without a deep and serious commitment from the heart of our souls.
