All over the world there is a renewed interest in the old prophecies connected with the 2012, and many have erroneously connected the one of the famous Maya calendar with the Bible’s Apocalypse, which has been interpreted in so many different ways that can be used to affirm just about any theory one wants with it.


a) According to Stanislav Grof, the primary importance of the archetype

of the Apocalypse is that


it functions as an important landmark on the spiritual journey. It emerges

into the consciousness of the seeker at a time when he or she

recognizes the illusory nature of the material world.


As the universe reveals its true essence as virtual reality, as a cosmic play of consciousness, the world of matter is destroyed in the psyche of the individual.


This might also be the meaning of the “end of the world”

referred to in the Mayan prophecy.


Etymologically the term apocalypse derives from the Greek apokálypsis which does not mean destruction or the end of the world but a “lifting of the veil” or “revelation.”


The reason that it came to mean something like Armageddon is probably the sentence “apokálypsis eschaton” which means “a revelation at the end of an age,


but not the end of the world, only the end of what in Hinduism is called

the Dark Age, Kali Yuga, the end of materialism,

wars and oppression.


b) Thousands of years ago the Mayas saw something about the present times

that was real for the level of the human evolution THEN, but which in the meantime have changed,


therefore their prophecies can be valid

only to some extent.


Some of the prophesied natural disasters, also from other sources than the Mayas – (“natural” to some extent only, as humanity’s pollution and over-exploitation of nature contribute heavily to their occurrence) will come to pass, but not all – we should not take such grim forecasts too literally because




As Stanislav Grof said,


In the year 2012, the sun will have traveled to the edge of a cosmic dust cloud known as the Great Dark Rift that lies along the Milky Way and seems to divide its light into two paths. The Mayans called this dark rift Xibalba Be {Road to the Underworld) and saw it as


a place of birth and death and of death/rebirth. It was for them the birth canal

of the Cosmic Mother Creatrix, where the December

solstice sun gets reborn in 2012.


He also adds a most important point:


In the last analysis, the current global crisis is of a psycho-spiritual nature;

it reflects the level of consciousness evolution of the human species.


It is therefore hard to imagine that it could be resolved without a radical inner transformation of humanity on a large scale and its rise to a higher

level of emotional maturity and spiritual awareness.


But however difficult it might be, without such radical inner transformation


humanity will not survive.


c) The Hopi Indians are the Record Keepers of the Native Americans

and call this present time the “The Fourth Age of Man”.


According to them the earth has been purified three times already, first by Fire, next by Ice, most recently by a great flood, the one mentioned first in the Sumerian Gilgamesh epic approximately12,000 years ago, then mentioned in the Bible, and now


we will soon enter “The Fifth Age”, which the Hopis called “The World

of Illumination”, which coincides with the dawning

of the Age of Aquarius.


Actually, there have been SIX previous human civilizations that after reaching a certain level sank back into barbarism.


Mère of Sri Aurobindo ashram said that


Our civilization is the seventh, the one which will not do so but go on

to levels yet unconceivable to the human mind.


The Q’ero tribe is the very last of the Incas and for the last five centuries


have preserved a sacred prophecy about a great change, or “pachacuti” coming in the present times in which


harmony and truth will be restored, and all chaos

and disorder ended.


Our present wrong ways of thinking and living will come to an end, we will be connected again to nature, to our Mother Earth, and enter a golden age, a millennium of peace and love.

But before that


as the doorways between the worlds will open there will be a “transitional period”

of tumultuous changes both in the earth

and in our psyche;


a period of great turmoil after which the new human race

will finally emerge.


In the Bible’s Apocalypse there is this prophecy:


To all , small and big, rich and poor, free men and slaves, will be imposed a mark on the right hand or on the forehead and it will not be possible to buy or sell anything if one does not carry the mark, the name of the beast or the cypher of its name.

For who has the intelligence, that interprets the cypher of the beast, it is time for discernment, because if a cypher of man and this cypher is 666.


This sounds worse than Orwell’s 1984, but actually


In the USA, this mark has already been implanted in several people,

and the government plans to gradually

implant it on everyone.


In the UK is implanted on animals carried into the country.

From the Net:

A Hopi elder speaks:


You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour, and there are things to be considered . . .


Where are you living? What are you doing?

What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?

Where is your water?

Know your garden.


It is time to speak your Truth. Create your community. Be good

to each other. And do not look outside yourself

for the leader.


Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said,


This could be a good time!” There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water.

And I say,


see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history,

we are to take nothing personally.

Least of all ourselves.


For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt, The time for the lone wolf is over.


Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from your attitude

and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done

in a sacred manner and in celebration.


We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!


Sri Aurobindo has the last word:


Things go bad, are worsening, and can at any moment become worse or even more than worse if that was possible; everything, no matter how paradoxical, seems possible in the present upheaval of the world…


all this was necessary because if a new and better world must come,

certain possibilities had to emerge

and be eliminated;


to postpone things would not be useful at all. It is like in yoga: it is necessary that active or latent things in the being be put in action in full light,


so that they can be confronted and rejected, or made to emerge

from their deep latent state, always

in order to purify them.
