The Valley of Shadows in The Landscape of Light

After Dark

So-called “dark ages” are not only dark. They are also light. Although we tend to view dark ages with some trepidation, or perhaps even with fear, they serve an important role. It is during dark times that we seek out our own light and the light of others. It is dark times that show up the shadows in the world and bring them to the surface. It is only by being confronted by darkness that we can truly aspire to light. Thus, from darkness comes light.

One cycle leads to another and one prepares us for the other. In other words, the whole process should be approached with a certain attitude: An understanding that cycles, whether light or dark, are evolutionary in nature and in purpose, and that we are able to work with these energies, either way.

The Mayan Fifth World, a 5125 year great cycle that started at the end of 2012  is said to hold immense opportunity for spiritual growth. Presently we are still transitioning into the Fifth World, while slowly pulling out of the Fourth. By seeing the opportunities that this transition holds for personal transformation, we can all become conscious co-creators of the new world as we transition into it.

Knowing the Energies

By knowing the characteristics of energies we are able to know how to work with them. Knowing them can allow us to step over some of their negative manifestations and we can know how to fully experience and gain from their positive influences. This happens by honoring the symbolism of the energies by integrating their purpose in our thought processes and by applying that to our daily living. When we don’t know about these energies we are at their disposal rather than the other way around.

The easiest way for newcomers to the Mayan calendars to start knowing the archetypes that embody the energies is to follow the sacred Tzolkin calendar on a daily basis. This opens up a broader understanding of the cyclical nature and the interactions of the characteristics of the various energies with each other. For example, the continuity from one cycle to the next becomes apparent and the repetitive nature of them in an altered form every time, in a gradual never-ending, cyclical linear progression of renewal, eventually comes into vision.

Shift of the Stages

Recoleta Angel

All the world’s a stage. As actors in the theatre of life we are all here to play our part(s), consciously or unconsciously. We find ourselves present at this time during a significant transformation stage. In the old, but still present age it felt like the stage had been set and most of us were simply reading our lines. It was perhaps not always understood why we were in the theatre in the first place. In the incoming age our destined roles are more clear and the new paradigm is more fluid.

Roles are changing. Transitioning actors are becoming scriptwriters while watching themselves on stage. They are rewriting the script and adjusting their parts.  A drama, currently scripted to end in tragedy is being rewritten into a coming of age tale of transformation, rebirth and altered fate. This is a multi-dimensional theatre and shifting actors are becoming aware that by being in this stage, they are also present in others.

Modern power for traditional living

Modern power for traditional living

Uros islands are floating reed islands found on Lake Titicaca, the largest fresh water lake in South America, situated between Peru and Bolivia.

The floating Uros islands were originally created in pre-Colombian times when the small Uros tribe needed to find a solution for being attacked by various other tribes.

Today many of the floating islands have solar power, which has modernised their lifestyles. Urus people can now cook without having to make fire, reducing the accompanying hazards. The islanders can also charge their cell phones and even watch television and run small refrigerators.

Tikal – “The place of the spirit voices”

Tikal National Park, Petén, Guatemala, Central America

Tikal is the largest excavated Maya site in the Americas and once was one of the greatest and most prominent cities in all of the Maya world. Besides general sightseeing, of interest to me during my recent visit in September, was to get to know more about the advanced technologies and sophisticated infrastructure which could be found in Tikal in its heyday. I was also interested in learning more about the reasons for the eventual collapse of this advanced civilization.

We need to fully understand that humanity is in transition right now. One could look at it in the following way by using another analogy. There are two streams. They are flowing at the same time. The one is wide and polluted and slowing down. The other is narrow and clear and increasingly coming on-stream. The fish in the wide stream have lost their colour and are lacklustre and tired due to the contamination. They are finding it harder and harder to make headway through the murk. Some of them have forgotten where they came from and where they are going to. The narrow and clear stream is flowing within the wide and polluted stream. The fish in the clear part of the stream have decontaminated themselves and have regained their colour and vibrancy. They have remembered where the came from and they know where they are going to, so they are staying inside the narrow, fast moving, clear stream. They are excited and appreciative about having chosen the clear stream and having rejuvenated their sense of direction. The narrow stream has a clear destination. It is flowing back home. The wide polluted stream’s destination is unknown. Up ahead the two streams will diverge. It is best to choose well with which flow we are going to go.
