The Mayan Elders say that 2012 should be seen as a time of renewal. However, money may become worthless. They tell us that 2012 is a time, like no other, that we should be reconnecting to our spiritual nature.

UNITED NATIONS, Oct 11– Leading Mayan Elders held a news conference last week at the United Nations Church Plaza hosted by the Society for Enlightenment and Transformation (SEAT), the spiritual arm of the UN, to quell the doomsday paranoia and send a message of hope and peace…

…For centuries this date, the last recorded day in the ancient Mayan calendar, has carried a deep message about the fate of the world. But the prediction made thousands of years ago by meticulous Mayan astrologers has been so badly misinterpreted and misrepresented in the west that its original meaning has been lost. According to Mayan Historian Don Pedro Chuc Pech, 2012 marks the end of the fifth period of the sun, which has taken 5,200 years to complete its cycle. The sixth period will begin on December 21, 2012, a time when “Mother Earth will be replenished with energy from Grandfather Sun.”

For the Mayans, who have endured thousands of years of catastrophe, now is the time to celebrate the survival of humanity, not to mourn an impending disaster……

…Amidst these messages of faith, Grandfather Cirilo also delivered a warning: that our planet is plagued with diseases of greed and violence. Of his 82 years he has spent the last 20 traveling the world to spread the knowledge of his people.

Often his wisdom is met with dismissal, even ridicule. But he will continue to deliver what he knows to be true. “We are coming close to the time when money will be worthless,” he said, urging us to look beyond the material world and reconnect with spirituality….(terraviva united nations)

The Mayans have said repeatedly that the Mayan Calender never predicted the end of the world. But it does indicate a time of transition. Hopefully, that transition will be one of joy instead of disaster.

Ultimately it is up to us to bring about the world they want to see.

Do we want to continue on a path of destruction?

Or do we want to open our hearts and minds to what the Navajo’s call “The Beauty Way”?

The Beauty Way is one of harmony with and appreciation for the life that sustains us. It is a way that will sustain us and nurture us. However, it is a way in which “money may become worthless.”
