The Fifth Earth – Energy Transitions (Part 1)

** *For background on the Mayan Fifth World and the Fifth Element, please see: The Maya World Tree Apocalypse Now The first five years of the new Great Cycle, The Mayan Fifth World, have probably turned out much less apocalyptic than initially forecasted, considering the dire predictions for 2012, notwithstanding a lot of upheaval since then. In the years leading up to 2012 many leaders and their followers in the Mayanism movement threw bits and pieces of a broad selection […]

The Fifth Sky – Tuning In

*For background on the Mayan Fifth World and the Fifth Element, please see: The Maya World Tree Mayan Mythology and Symbolism The Mayan Calendar constitutes at least three calendars in contemporary terms which are used to map different cycles, but there are at least twenty Mayan calendars in total. For the sake of brevity and simplicity we can summarize that the most important thing to know about the Mayan calendar systems is that time is cyclical. As cycles return they […]

Building the New World Within (5) – Fox-like Shenanigans

Folklore has the purpose of educating us about the real world as we grow up. It helps children become aware of archetypes in relation to the nature of people. When they then come across such characters in real life, they won’t be completely new to them. On that note, we now visit an as-yet unexplored part of the Chicken Little fable. Not unlike the protagonists of many children’s fables, Chicken Little inadvertently “fell under the spell” of the proverbial wolf […]

Building the New World Within (4) – The Inside Story

This brings us back to the story of Chicken Little and the metaphors within. Chicken Little is merrily strolling in the forest when something (an acorn) falls on her head. She doesn’t look up. She doesn’t investigate to see what it is. She gets frightened instead of directing her attention to where the hint came from. She panics and decides to warn everyone she comes across that “the sky is falling!” Her hysteria is transferred to the others and they […]

Exploring Experience – Part 3 [Extract]

The pathfinder is standing in front of the open gates to the city. The walls are thick and high and cannot be scaled. It makes him wonder why there are no guards. Such defences, yet the doors are wide open.  A signpost just inside of the entrance reads: “Please Disarm”. Well, I hardly have any armour left anyway”, he thinks to himself and passes through the long gateway. Once through, he finds himself in a circular lane, bending slightly inwards, […]

Exploring Experience – Part 2 [Extract]

[Extract] The traveler is traveling against the stream of figures approaching through the thick fog. No one is acknowledging him. It is as if he doesn’t exist. “They must be focusing on the destination”, he thinks to himself. The ground below him is slippery, but he tries his best to step on solid stones and rocks to get some traction. He cannot see any landmarks.  This must be a type of flatland area, but which direction is he going? .. […]

Exploring Experience – Part 1 [Extract]

[Extract] The well travelled traveller has made a decision to explore more. To explore experience down the road never travelled before. Going down a new road is what he’s going to do and unexplored territory is what he’s going to go through. He has a feeling that this road could be dark, but he understands that all roads have dark and light.
