In November of 2007, Mayan Elders from all the tribes got together to give us the true interpretation of the Mayan prophesy about December 21st 2012, which some have called "the end of time."
Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj a 13th generation high priest and elected leader of the National Mayan Council of Guatemala will select 25 high authority elders to give us an accurate interpretation of the Mayan glyphs. Don Alejandro or Grand Elder Wakatel Utiw(his Mayan name) is the primary keeper of the teachings, visions and prophesies of the Mayan people
They had also invited the chiefs of aboriginal cultures around the world. The Kogi, Arhuaco and Wiwa Mamos from Columbia, the Waitaha and Maori elders from New Zealand, the Hopis of North America and many others who wish to be present with the Mayans at this time. This long awaited announcement got little if any media attention but it will be of great importance to all humanity. Many have waited a long time for the Mayans to gives us the true meaning of the much publicized date.
December 21, 2012 is the end of the grand cycle according to the Mayan calendar. It is the end of the 13th Baktun and 13th Ahau, a 5200 year cycle that is ending in our lifetimes. Exciting times from my perspective. It is the day that the calendar ends. There is no record for the sun to arise the next day. Does this mean the end of humanity?
The Mayan calendar has been the most accurate calendar the world has ever known. They have a knowledge of how the universe works and it's truths that is second to none. The amazing part is that this information has been with us for over 4000 years. It is only now that the Mayans and the information they have recorded in glyphs is getting the respect and attention it deserves.
What did they say? How did they interpret these prophesies?
To get the full text as to what they said will have to wait till sometime this year. The transcription of the elder gathering is being compiled into a book which will be signed by the entire National Mayan Council of Guatemala so the world knows for certain that this is the real Mayan prophesy.
I believe that I have found the essence of what they said from quotes attributed to Don Alejandro Oxlaj. These are statements he has made since the pilgrimage.
"At the time of the 13 Baktun and 13 Ahau is the time of the return of our Ancestors and the return of the men of wisdom. That time is now. Arise, everyone, stand up! Not one, nor two groups be left behind the rest.This prophecy is in reference to all: rich or poor, black or white, men or women, indigenous or non indigenous, we all are equal, we all have dignity, we all deserve respect, we all deserve happiness; we all are useful and necessary to the growth of our planet to make it a place where we can live with respect among the different cultures.
According to the Maya Long Count Calendar, we are finalizing the 13 Baktun and 13 Ahau, thus approaching the YEAR CERO. We are at the doorsteps of the ending of another period of the Sun, a period that lasts 5,200 years and ends with several hours of darkness. After this period of darkness there comes a new period of the Sun; it will be the 6th one. In each period of the Sun there is an adjustment for the planet and it brings changes in the weather conditions and in social and political life as well.The world is transformed and we enter a period of understanding and harmonious coexistence where there is social justice and equality for all. It is a new way of life.
With a new social order there comes a time of freedom where we can move like the clouds, without limitations, without borders. We will travel like the birds, without the need for passports. We will travel like the rivers, all heading towards the same point the same objective. The Mayan prophecies are announcing a time of change. The Pop Wuj, the book of the Counsel, tells us, It is time for dawn; let the dawn come, for the task to be finished."
What a time for humanity coming. The Mayans have prophesied this, as has many other indigenous peoples around the globe. The Eagle of the North(masculine) and the Condor of the South(feminine) will once again fly together as the one that they truly are. The balance that nature always seeks is happening right now.
Everything in the universe is a circle. For every end, there is a new beginning. I know in my heart that this time for humanity is not the end, but a new beginning. A time for us to completely change our perspective on everything to do with the human experience.
The Mayan wisdom has been passed down through generations and has been kept alive and relevant for a reason. If we, as the collective entity of humanity, can only hear their words and embrace their vision for us all, then the reason that this 4000 year old prophesy has survived will surely be revealed.
I know this is not the end and I am sure the Mayan interpretation will not be filled with doom, gloom and Armageddon. This is a new beginning for every human on earth. This is a time when we evolve from a species where hate, ignorance and judgment will be replaced with love, wisdom, compassion, unity and cooperation.
