LD4all Quest #5: Solar Moon: Dreaming Our Way to 2012
Author/s: Nick Cumbo (Explora), pasQuale
Each moon, on LD4all we have a new Quest to explore your LD’s in a fun way.
13 Moon Calendar
The 13 Moon Calendar presents a new way of moving through time, based around the simple, natural rhythm of 13 Moons of 28 Days. Additional information about the movement is available at the home of the World Thirteen Moon Calendar Change Peace Movement. More monthly pictures and the option to order a calendar, can be found in our 13 Moon Calendar: Journey of the Peace Train.
Dreaming our way to 2012
Why the year 2012? Among their other accomplishments, the ancient Maya created calendars of remarkable accuracy and complexity. These were used to keep track of the many different cycles of time, which “map and structure various aspects of human experience” (John Major Jenkins - Maya Cosmogenesis 2012). In addition to calendars such as the 365-day Haab (civil calendar) and the 260-day Tzolkin (sacred count), the Maya used the Long Count Calendar to keep track of a Great Cycle, 5125 years in lenth; extending from BC. 3113/3114 to 2012. AD.
Remarkably, the December 21st 2012 endpoint of the Long Count (126.96.36.199.0), comes to pass on the winter/summer solstice of 2012. “An incredibly rare alignment, in which the noonday Sun exactly conjucts the crossing points of the sun’s ecliptic with the galactic plane, while also closely conjucting the exact center of the galaxy”. “The Maya conceived of this Great Cycle as one World Age, one growth cycle at the end of which humanity reaches the next stage in it’s spiritual development”…
What does this mean for the years around 2012? “In shamanic terms, this is a pure alignment, an increased awareness of our responsibility to Earth, as her core aligns sensitively and slowly to the cosmic core” (Dreaming the Council Ways). These are years of profound opportunity. By participating in this project, we seek to move beyond our conditioned passivity, and unravel the earth’s larger dream as it grows and evolves within each of us.
