The solstice of 2012 is nearly upon us. We have heard all the theories about what will take place. I find many of them to be ridiculous. Those who are viewing this event mythologically will, I believe, be profoundly blessed. There is an amazing story being told here by the Anima Mundi. The prophecies of the Maya were not meant to be taken literally! But that’s just like our rationally bent culture, to take a beautiful myth and turn it into bits of scientific data.
All the dying-and-rising-god myths have been based on what occurs during the Winter solstice. For millennia, it has been a profound time of reflection and meaning. This particular solstice is special. According to Mayan elder and priest, Carlos Barrios,
Mayan Day-keepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth, the start of the World of the Fifth Sun. It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic equator and the Earth aligning itself with the center of the galaxy (What the Mayan Elders are Saying About 2012).
This particular kind of solstice only occurs every 26,000 years. In my view, this coming Friday will be the beginning of a new epoch for humanity, one which will bring us to greater consciousness and greater clarity concerning our mission here on this planet. It will be what the Mayans call the World of the Fifth Sun.
