The Cardinal Cross,By Carol Ann Ciocco

Cardinal Cross!

We are under severe stress this summer and fall from the most dynamic and tension-producing cycles we have seen since the Great Depression - in fact, even more intense than what we had then. - Madeline Gerwick

The Cardinal Cross represents an almost unprecedented alignment of planets at 90ยบ, right angles, filling all four corners of a large, square pattern imposed on the zodiac circle. The planets align in the early degrees of the cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn known for their love to initiate change and not always in a predictable manner. Major forces of change are at work here. - Patricia Liles


Maybe you've heard, there is this thing going on in the sky that astrologers have been writing and talking about for months, years, decades even: the formation of a triangle or cross in the sky this summer. Astrologers are calling it The Cardinal Crisis and indeed it is a rare planetary configuration. I remember astrologers discussing it as far back as 1993. Boy, did 2010 sound futuristic back then, lol. It's funny to think that it is now here.

This Cross is actually a T-square (triangle) and when a planet passes through the empty arm of the cross (the early degrees of the sign of Cancer), the Cross is ignited.

Triangles and Crosses form in the sky all the time. What makes this one so notable is that the planets involved are heavy-hitters which are in the early degrees (0-3 degrees) of what we call Cardinal signs.

The Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. These signs have "cardinal force." They are the initiators, creators and leaders of the zodiac. Each of these signs kicks off a new season - they are associated with Spring Equinox (Aries) Fall Equinox (Libra) Summer Solstice (Cancer) and Winter Solstice (Capricorn). They have a GO GO GO feel to them.

The Cardinal energy resembles the way it feels when Spring arrives and we burst forward, like the tiny bud pushing up through the soil, anxious to grow, explore, to get moving. The Zero-degree mark of these four signs are considered especially combustible - transition hot-spots at the point where we navigate from one reality/season to the next. To have major planets all coming together in a cross formation at Zero Cardinal - well, it really is impressive.



The Cast of Characters


The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great nerve-center from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time. D. H. Lawrence


Pluto - Lord of the Underworld, transformation, 'death', letting go, evolution - is in early Capricorn.

Saturn - Lord of Time and Karma, the Great Taskmaster, the Law - is in early Libra.

Mars - war energy, anger, action, assertiveness - is also in early Libra.

Uranus - Change Agent, revolutionary, lightning bolt, electricity, anarchy, off-planet energies, freedom - is in early Aries.

Jupiter - abundance, expansiveness, gifts, over-indulgence - is also in early Aries. Aries is the quintessential fire sign of sudden bursts of energy.

Note: to read more about Uranus and Jupiter in Aries, check out my previous newsletter here: http://conta.cc/d2VbWV

The early degrees of Cancer are the empty part of the cross, except when mercury, the moon, the nodes pass through there. See below for more information about the Void in the Cross.

Basic keywords for these planets: Jupiter in Aries (high-energy opportunities), Saturn in Libra (reality in relationships), Uranus in Aries (sudden forceful awakening), Pluto in Capricorn (transformation requires integrity), Mars in Libra (action in harmony).

So if it could talk, the Cardinal Cross might say: Wake up NOW to the reality of your relationship with everything around you and seize the opportunity for transformation by taking bold action grounded in integrity.

Or how about: death, war, karma, time, evolution, revolution - and adding an extra gallon of fuel to top off a huge cardinal fire.

Or how about: metamorphosis, new construction, advocacy of the greater good, standing in your truth, throwing off your shackle - and a Brinks truck backing up to your door with so many gifts you don't have room in your house for them.

It can go either way. It is both at the same time.


Take Up Your Cross


When your mind is crucified with trials and temptations, arise into the sphere of self-control. -Yogananda

Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine. - Elvis Presley.


When the energies described above face off, are ignited or triggered, it is explosive - external explosions or internal implosions which create irrestible leaps into change. Change is the best use of this energy. It is intense but a lot of things can be done with it if harnessed properly.

Imagine that you have a car with a V-8 engine but have kept it in your garage for months because you couldn't find the proper fuel to move it properly. The latent V-8 engine is your life, which has been stalled in SO many ways; and the Cardinal Cross is a sudden appearance and infusion of the fuel to move you off dead-center.

So you have been stuck for quite some time now, years, maybe even decades. This summer offers you a chance to seize the Cardinal Cross and use it's fiery, full-steam-ahead energy to get out of the ruts of your life.

Crosses are a symbol of, well, crucifixion. Something will die so that something can be resurrected in a new form. We are asked to 'take up our cross' and follow the light. I am not talking about excruciating suffering. I am saying that when faced with the cause-and-effect results of past actions that lead to a dead-end, we have the option to wade through our own resistance (acknowledge our hand-made cross of self-created suffering) and raise ourselves up to a new level, a higher vibration.

In other words, the cardinal energies provide a sheer headlong force toward evolution. They provide the opportunity to leap from crucifixion to resurrection, to leap over the divide between life and death, between heaven and earth. It takes cardinal force to do that, indeed.

Resurrection after a crucible of change is the crux of the matter here. I am reminded of the Total Solar Eclipse of a few weeks ago (July 11, 2010). It fell over Easter Island - Easter being all about Resurrection. Every Good Friday is always followed by an Easter Sunday.

The energy field of the Cross will be in effect through the end of August but will reverberate for months (even years) after that. There was a similar POW-BANG Grand Cross (in fixed signs) in August of 1999. I am still feeling the effects 11 years later. It's weird but I think of it every day.


The Cross of the Masters


The bowed heads of arrogant rulers, proud of their knowledge and influence in this world, are crushed under the heels of the hero who feels no terror for them. I supplicate you, venerable and fearless hero. - Terchen Gyurme Dorje

May Love and Light and Power restore the Plan on Earth. - from The Great Invocation


Many astrologers are saying - and I agree - that the summer of 2010 is actually more intense than the astrological energies of the upcoming 'famous' year 2012. The groundwork is laid this summer. And yet, as astrologer Rick Levine has said, "it's a Cardinal Initiation not Cardinal Climax. Don't cancel plans for 2013." He says that "people are fear mongering" the cardinal cross transit. Maybe so. But who cares really. Why don't we just look at the deeper spiritual meaning.

But first, I have a confession to make: I have struggled to understand the Cardinal Cross. Normally I can feeeel my way into the energetic of a celestial event/ configuration - but this one has eluded me all summer. I don't have any planets placed in any of the Cardinal Signs and one of them (Libra) is engulfed in my 12th house - the house of the hidden, of the subconsious, that which is outside of day-to-day awareness.

In addition, I think the true mystical nature of the Cardinal Cross is something that is only just now dawning on Humanity. It is higher than earth and represents a profound spiritual initiation that we can't quite articulate yet because we are just now entering into it fully.

In esoteric philosophy, the Cardinal Cross is associated with the Crisis of Equilibrium. When found in the birth chart it is a sign that the Disciple on the path of Illumination is approaching a leap forward in their personal spiritual evolution.

The Mutable Cross (Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, Pisces) is said to be the cross of the Initiate - the one who has just woken to spiritual reality and is taking their first steps upon the path. The Fixed Cross (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius) is the cross of the Disciple - the one who is steady on the path and is going through intense trials to burn away the dross of the little self. And the Cardinal Cross is the cross of the Masters - those who are facing the Dweller on the Threshold of a Higher Initiation into a new form of reality not seen before.

Humanity is working with and reaching for Mastery as we take on this cross. And the Masters are working closely with us, more so than ever before.


Finding Cardinal Direction


The word cardinal comes from the Latin cardinalis which means "pertaining to a hinge, hence applied to that on which something turns or depends, important, principal, chief" - i.e. cardo -"hinge"

The stakes are higher with cardinal signs, because it's about initiating the new. And that's why being engaged in shaping your intent has never been more important. - Maurice Fernandez


What are the Cardinal Directions? The Cardinal Directions are perhaps the foremost of all frameworks for life on earth, They are present in all religious traditions throughout history, without exception. Shamans and Medicine Men/Women call in the Four Directions in order to anchor the Divine on Earth.

We get our bearings by finding North on a compass. We understand the dawn and the day ahead, and yearn for the new and exotic, by looking to the East. We enjoy the heat of the mid-day Sun by venturing South. And at the end of the day we sail Into the West for sunset and sleep. We literally define the fabric of our lives by marking the movement of our star, the Sun in relationship to the Four directions. We would be lost without our understanding of them. They are like breathing.

The notorious East-West polarity is one of the most important polarities that we struggle with in our current state of evolution. It represents the duality of Feminine-Masculine. Yin and Yang. Our struggle for balance comes from the tension between these opposites.

The North-South polarity is another doozy. It represents the duality of White-Black. Light and Dark. Our struggle for freedom comes from the tension between these opposites.

The word cardinal is embedded in our consciousness in much the same way as the directions are.

The bright red bird known as the cardinal is seen as a sign of good luck by many (Including my mother, who would always rejoice when she saw a cardinal. She even told me that she would come back to visit me in the form of a cardinal:)

And we have the Cardinal Sins, the Cardinal Virtues, and the Four Immeasurables (from Tibetan spirituality). Note: The number 4 is deeply cardinal.

What are the Cardinal Sins? The Seven Deadly Sins, also known as the Capital Vices or Cardinal Sins, is a classification of the most objectionable vices that has been used since early Christian times to educate and instruct followers concerning fallen humanity's tendency to sin. The final version of the list consists of wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. - wiki

The Roman Catholic tinge of red cannot be ignored. I was just thinking about the changes in the church taking place this summer as the Cardinal Cross forms in the sky. New rules and regulations were put into place in regard to the protocol for dealing with priests who abuse children.

What are the Cardinal Virtues? (1) Prudence - Sapientia - able to judge between actions with regard to appropriate actions at a given time - CANCERIAN. (2) Justice - Lustitia - proper moderation between self-interest and the rights and needs of others - LIBRA. (3) Restraint or Temperance - Temperantia - practicing self-control, abstention, and moderation - CAPRICORN. (4) Courage or Fortitude - Fortitudo - forbearance, endurance, and ability to confront fear and uncertainty, or intimidation - CANCERIAN.

The Cardinal Virtues were derived initially from Plato's scheme (see Protagoras 330b, which also includes piety - hosiotes) and adapted by Saint Ambrose, Augustine of Hippo, and Thomas Aquinas (see Summa Theologica II(I).61). The term "cardinal" comes from the Latin cardo or hinge; the cardinal virtues are so called because they are hinges upon which the door of the moral life swings. - wiki

What are the Four Immeasurables? - from Tibetan Spirituality: The Four Immeasurables, also known as the Brahma Viharas in Sanskrit) are found in one brief and beautiful prayer:

(1) May all sentient beings have happiness and its causes,
(2) May all sentient beings be free of suffering and its causes,
(3) May all sentient beings never be separated from bliss without suffering,
(4) May all sentient beings be in equanimity, free of bias, attachment and anger.

The Buddha taught the following to his son Rahula (from "Old path white clouds" by Thich Nhat Hahn): "Rahula, practice loving kindness to overcome anger. Loving kindness has the capacity to bring happiness to others without demanding anything in return. Practice compassion to overcome cruelty. Compassion has the capacity to remove the suffering of others without expecting anything in return. Practice sympathetic joy to overcome hatred. Sympathetic joy arises when one rejoices over the happiness of others and wishes others well-being and success. Practice non-attachment to overcome prejudice. Non-attachment is the way of looking at all things openly and equally." http://bit.ly/dk0Ajy

Direction in life, Sin, Virtue, Immeasurable Love and Compassion. All are of Cardinal importance. Have we lost our moral compass?

It is safe to say, without leaning into hype, that we are at a CRUCIAL (as in crux, cross) and pivotal turning point. At the very least you, personally, are at a crossroads in your life. Pay attention to which way you turn, onto which of the four paths before you: EVOLUTION, ACTION, CHANGE, WISDOM, or DISCIPLINE.

Right now, I think it is important to choose ONE of these. Of course we want them all. But cardinal is an energy of Primacy, an energy of ONE (1 is THE cardinal number). Focus in. Which direction is the one that will open the door for you? Set your intention.

It's time to Turn the Wheel. The Wheel of the Dharma. The Steering Wheel. The Wheel of Fortune. Imagine a large valve in the form of a wheel (see pic above)that you have to turn to open the door, to open the vault. And to let off steam. Imagine a Phillips Head Screwdriver (see pic above). Turn the screws on the stuck parts of your life. Twist the cross.

What is the Cardinal Rule? Compassion

A lot hinges on it.


Baby Love


Oh baby love, my baby love I need you, oh how I need you/ But all you do is treat me bad/ Break my heart and leave me sad/ Tell me, what did I do wrong/ To make you stay away so long/ ... Don't throw our love away/ In my arms why don't you stay/ My love, my baby love. I need you, oh how I need you.- Diana Ross

What the mother sings to the cradle goes all the way down to the coffin. - Henry Ward Beecher

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread. - Mother Teresa

Just to leave one's homeland is to accomplish half the dharma. - Milarepa


The only missing cardinal sign in the Cardinal Cross is the sign of Cancer. On a macro level Cancerian energies represent the Great Mother, the Nurturer, the Goddess, the Mother of All Life. Figures such as Mother Mary and Isis have represented this energy down through the ages. So, on the macro level we see the need to "fill in the gap" by honoring the Divine Feminine and Mother Earth. That is the key to the perfection of this cross. This area of our consciousness is empty right now. We are not bringing it to the table.

On a micro level the Cancerian energies are all about nurturing and loving ourselves. Cancerian is associated with the Inner Infant, the primal part of us that needs to be fed, held, rocked and loved in order to survive. It is the sign of family, ancestry, the tribe and the homeland. It is the hand that rocks the cradle in the nursery, the crib, the highchair. It is a need for safety, shelter and security at the deepest part of our being. Our roots, our root chakra.

So many of us do not tend to our Inner Infant because it is very primitive and we are sometimes disturbed by it. Thetruth is that the infant simply cannot survive without food provided by the mother (OR without emotional attention from some type of nurturing figure). Infants not attended to are classified "Failure to Thrive". Humanity has this disorder right now.

This is the most basic aspect of being human - our deep need for connection to humans who care about us. Until and unless humans somehow begin to be hatched from eggs instead of gestated in a human womb, the umbilical cord of the Cancerian infant will always be there within us. By pretending its not there, the infant ends up running companies that kill the Mother due to infantile rage. Greed, the human greed that is destroying our planet, is - at its core - a very infantile behavior.

The eclipses of this summer were across the polarity of Capricorn and Cancer. At the Partial Lunar Eclipse on June 26, 2010, the Solstice Sun in Cancer completed the cross and the energy was incredibly powerful. It kicked off the Cardinal Cross summer. Then the Easter Island Total Solar Eclipse on July 11, 2010 was in the sign of Cancer. Not to mention the earthshaking Chindia Total Solar Eclipse of July 22, 2009 was also in the sign of Cancer.

This area is a VOID in the cross and yet the spectacular phenomenon of Total Eclipses calls our attention there. Everyone looked up. And so, periodically this summer the Cancerian soft-spot, the underbelly of humanity, is lit up - its lurking message triggered and catalyzed. Pay attention to the infant inside of you and learn to recognize it in others. Sometimes people - including you - just need to be comforted with a nice hot cup of tea and basic human lovingkindness.

The Laws of Karma,By Swami Sivanandaji

By Sri Swami Sivananda
What Is Karma?
Karma means not only action, but also the result of an action. The consequence of an action is really not a separate thing. It is a part of the action, and cannot be divided from it. Breathing, thinking, talking, seeing, hearing, eating, etc., are Karmas. Thinking is mental Karma. Karma is the sum total of our acts both in the present life and in the preceding births.
Any deed, any thought that causes an effect, is called a Karma. The Law of Karma means the law of causation. Wherever there is a cause, there an effect must be produced. A seed is a cause for the tree which is the effect. The tree produces seeds and becomes the cause for the seeds.
How Karma Is Fashioned
Man is threefold in his nature. He consists of Ichha (desire, feeling), Jnana (knowing) and Kriya (willing). These three fashion his Karma. He knows objects like chair, tree, etc. He feels joy and sorrow. He wills to do this, or not to do that.
Behind the action, there are desire and thought. A desire for an object arises in the mind. Then you think how to get it. Then you exert to possess it. Desire, thought and action always go together. They are the three threads, as it were, that are twisted into the cord of Karma.
Desire produces Karma. You work and exert to acquire the objects of your desire. Karma produces its fruits as pain or pleasure. You will have to take births after births to reap the fruits of your Karmas. This is the Law of Karma.
The Working Of The Law
The Law of Karma is one of the fundamental doctrines not only in Hinduism, but also in Buddhism , and in Jainism. As a man sows, so he shall reap. This is the Law of Karma. If you do an evil action, you must suffer for it. If you do a good action, you must get happiness. There is no power on this earth which can stop the actions from yielding their fruits. Every thought, every word, every deed is, as it were, weighed in the scales of eternal, divine Justice. The Law of Karma is inexorable.
Things do not happen in this universe by accident or chance in a disorderly manner. They happen in regular succession. They follow one another in a regular order. There is a certain definite connection between what is being done now by you, and what will happen in the future.
Every action produces a threefold effect. It gives you an appropriate reward or fruit. It also affects your character. It leaves behind an impression in your mind. This impression will urge you to repeat the act again. The impression will assume the form of a thought-wave in the mind on account of a stimulus, either external or internal. An action produces an effect in the world also.
As You Sow, So You Reap
If you put a seed in the earth, it sends up a little stem. Then leaves come out of the stem. Then come flowers and fruits. There are seeds again in the fruits. Mango seed only produces mango tree. If you sow rice, you cannot expect a crop of wheat. The same sort of seed produces the same kind of plant. A human being alone is born from the womb of a woman, a horse from a horse and a dog from a dog. Similarly, if you sow the seed of an evil action, you will reap a harvest of pain and suffering. If you sow the seed of a virtuous action, you will reap a harvest of pleasure. This is the Law of Karma.
Whatever you sow by your actions come back to you. If you make others happy through service, charity and kind acts, you sow happiness like a seed; and it will give you the fruit of happiness. If you make others unhappy through harsh words, insult, ill-treatment, cruel acts, oppression, etc., you sow unhappiness like a seed; and it will give you the fruit of pain, suffering, misery and unhappiness. This is the immutable Law of Karma.
Your actions in the past are responsible for your present condition. Your present actions will shape or mould your future. There is nothing chaotic or capricious in this world. You become good by your good actions, and bad by your evil actions.
If you entertain evil thoughts, you must suffer the consequences. You will be in difficulties. You will be surrounded by unfavourable circumstances. You will blame your surroundings and circumstances. Understand the law and live wisely. Entertain noble thoughts. You will be happy always.
Action - Habit - Character - Destiny
Thought moulds your character. If you entertain noble thoughts, you will develop a noble character; and if you entertain evil thoughts, you will develop a base character. This is the immutable Law of Nature. Therefore, you can deliberately shape your character by cultivating sublime thoughts. Thought materialises and becomes an action. If you allow the mind to dwell on good, elevating thoughts, you will do naturally good and laudable actions.
Conduct or behaviour reveals your character. Conduct also moulds your Character. Cultivation of good conduct needs rigorous discipline and constant vigilance. You will have to watch every thought, word and action. You must be extremely careful when you conduct yourself with others. With all your good intentions, you will be carried away by the force of your previous wrong impressions, instincts and impulses. Even highly educated people lack in behaviour. Good behaviour indicates that you have a refined or polished, disciplined mind and real, good spiritual culture . The practice of Japa, Pranayama and Mauna (or vow of silence) will help you to control the impulses etc.
You sow an action and reap a habit. You sow a habit and reap a character. You sow a character and reap your destiny. Hence, destiny is your own make-up. You have built it. You can undo it by entertaining noble thoughts, and doing virtuous actions, and changing your mode of thinking. Now you are thinking that you are the body, Mr. So and so. Now, start the anti-current of thought. Think that you are all-pervading, immortal Brahman. Brahman you will become. This is an immutable Law.
The Three Kinds Of Karma
Sanchita, Prarabdha and Agami
Karma is of three kinds, viz., Sanchita (accumulated works), Prarabdha (fructifying works) and Kriyamana or Agami (current works). Sanchita is all the accumulated Karmas of the past. Part of it is seen in the character of man, in his tendencies and aptitudes, capacities, inclinations and desires, etc. Tendencies come from this. Prarabdha is that portion of the past Karma which is responsible for the present body. That portion of the Sanchita Karma which influences human life in the present incarnation is called Prarabdha. It is ripe for reaping. It cannot be avoided or changed. It is only exhausted by being experienced. You pay your past debts. Prarabdha Karma is that which has begun and is actually bearing fruit. It is selected out of the mass of the Sanchita Karma. Kriyamana is that Karma which is now being made for the future. It is also called Agami or Vartamana.
In Vedantic literature, there is a beautiful analogy. The bowman has already sent an arrow and it has left his hands. He cannot recall it. He is about to shoot another arrow. The bundle of arrows in the quiver on his back is the Sanchita; the arrow he has shot is Prarabdha; and the arrow which he is about to shoot from his bow is Agami. Of these, he has perfect control over the Sanchita and the Agami, but he must surely work out his Prarabdha. The past which has begun to take effect he has to experience.
There is another beautiful analogy also. The granary represents the Sanchita Karma; that portion taken from the granary and put in the shop for future daily sale corresponds to Agami; that which is sold daily represents Prarabdha.
The whole lot of Sanchita Karma is destroyed by attaining Knowledge of Brahman or the Eternal. It can be greatly modified by entertaining lofty, divine thoughts, and doing virtuous actions. Agami Karma can be destroyed by expiatory rites or Prayaschitta; and by removing the idea of agency through Nimitta Bhava (attitude that one is an instrument in the hands of God) and Sakshi Bhava (attitude that one is silent witness of the actions of the senses and of the mind).
The Supremacy Of Free-Will
You are the master of your own fate. You are the architect of your own fortune. You are responsible for what you suffer. You are responsible for your present state. If you are happy, it has been your own making. If you are miserable, it has also been your own making. Every action bears a fruit sooner or later. A virtuous action produces pleasure as its effect. An evil deed causes pain.
You have no Bhoga-Svatantrya (freedom to determine the result of action), but you have Karma-Svatantrya (freedom to determine the course of action). That is the reason why the Lord Krishna says: -Karmanyeva Adhikaraste Ma Phaleshu Kadachana - Thy business is with the action only, never with its fruits. - Janaka and others attained to perfection by action. You can change your character, your thoughts and desires. Mans will is ever free. Through selfishness his will has become impure. He can render his will pure, strong and dynamic by getting rid of his base desires, and likes and dislikes. Every soul is like a husbandman who has got a plot of land. The acreage, the nature of the soil, the conditions of weather are all predetermined. But the husbandman is quite at liberty to till the earth, manure it and get good crops, or to allow it to remain as a waste land.
What you are now at present is the result of what you thought and did in the past. What you shall be in the future will be the result of what you think and do now. You find an environment which is best suited to the tendencies you acquired in a former life. You can create better conditions for the future. You can make your Karma what you choose. You can rise to a very high state of perfection. You can become an Indra or you may become a perfect Yogin. You can change your character, thoughts and actions. Therefore Bhishma and Vasishtha have placed Purushartha or exertion, above destiny.
A boatman without oars, rudder and sails is carried away helplessly by the winds and currents; but a clever boatman with oars, sails and rudder, ably directs the boat in any direction he likes and reaches the other shore safely. Even so, he who knows the Laws of Nature - the law of thought, the law of Karma, the law of cause and effect - can sail fearlessly in this ocean of Samsara and reach the other shore of fearlessness and immortality quite safely. He will utilise the helping forces to his best advantage and neutralise the opposing forces skilfully, with the help of the knowledge of the Laws. Knowledge is a torch-light. Hence, knowledge is absolutely indispensable. Ignorance is the greatest sin. An ignorant man becomes a victim or a slave of nature.
The Glory Of Selfless Work
Selfish Karma leads you to rebirth and rebirth generates new Karma while working off the old. Get rid of Karma if you wish to get rid of the miseries of rebirth. Selfless work will not bind you. It will purify your heart and lead to the descent of the divine light and grace. Understand the Law of Karma and the law of cause and effect. Think rightly. Act nobly. Meditate regularly and attain eternal bliss and immortality.
The Doctrine Of Reincarnation
The doctrine of reincarnation or transmigration of souls is a fundamental tenet of Hinduism. The word reincarnation literally means embodiment again, coming again into a physical body. The individual soul takes again a fleshy covering. The wordtransmigration means passing from one place to another - passing into a new body.
The Sanskrit term Samsara is derived from the Sanskrit root Sr, which means - to pass -. The prefix Sam means - intensely -. The individual soul passes repeatedly through this world and other subtle higher worlds. This repeated passing of souls - Samsriti - is what is really meant by the term Samsara.
Samsara exists in order that the individual soul may learn to realise itself.
Man contains within himself infinite possibilities. The magazine of power and wisdom is within him. He has to unfold the divinity within. This is the object of living and dying.
Enunciation Of The Doctrine In The Hindu Scriptures
You will not cease to exist after death. Before this birth , you have passed through countless lives. The Lord Krishna says in the Gita: - O Arjuna, both you and I have had many births before this; only I know them all, while you do not. Birth is inevitably followed by death, and death by rebirth. As a man casting off worn-out garments taketh new ones, so the dweller in the body, casting off worn-out bodies, entereth into others that are new. -
The Upanishads also declare: - Just as a caterpillar which has come to the top of a blade of grass, draws itself over to a new blade, so also does the soul draw itself over to a new body, after it has put aside its old body - (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad). - Just as a goldsmith, having taken a piece of gold, makes another form, new and more beautiful, so also, verily the Atman having cast off this body and having put away Avidya or ignorance, makes another new and more beautiful form - (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad). - Like corn, does a mortal ripen; like corn, does he spring to life again - (Kathopanishad).
Karma And Rebirth
The doctrine of rebirth is a corollary to the Law of Karma. The differences of disposition that are found between one individual and another must be due to their respective past actions. Past action implies past birth. Further, all your Karmas cannot certainly bear fruit in this life. Therefore, there must be another birth for enjoying the remaining actions. Each soul has a series of births and deaths. Births and deaths will continue till you attain Knowledge of the Imperishable.

Good Karmas lead to incarnation into higher spheres and bad Karmas into lower. By virtue is obtained ascent to higher planes and by vice, descent to the lower. From wisdom results beatitude, and bondage from the reverse. So long as Karmas - whether good or bad - are not exhausted, men do not attain Moksha or the final emancipation even in hundreds of Kalpas. Both good and bad Karmas bind tight the Jiva in their chains. One is a chain of gold and the other is that of iron. Moksha cannot be attained by man, so long as Knowledge of the Eternal is not attained.
Proofs For The Existence Of Previous Births
A new-born child manifests marks of joy, fear and grief. This is inexplicable unless we suppose that the child, perceiving certain things in this life, remembers the corresponding things of the past life . The things which used to excite joy, fear and grief in the past life, continue to do so in this life. The memory of the past proves the previous birth, as well as the existence of the soul.
A child, just born, drinks the breast of its mother through the remembrance that it did so in the previous life, as a means of satisfying hunger . The childs desire for milk in this life is caused by the remembrance of its experience in the previous life. This proves that the childs soul, though it has abandoned a previous body and has taken on a new one, remembers the experiences of the previous body.
You do not come into the world in total forgetfulness and in utter darkness. You are born with certain memories and habits acquired in the previous birth. Desires take their origin from previous experiences. We find that none is born without desire. Every being is born with some desires which are associated with the things enjoyed by him in the past life. The desires prove the existence of his soul in previous lives.
Passage Of The Soul Between Death And Rebirth
The soul migrates with the astral body, or Sukshma-Sarira or Linga- Deha. This astral body is made up of nineteen Tattvas or principles, viz., five organs of action, five organs of knowledge, five Pranas, mind, intellect, Chitta (the subconscious), and Ahankara or egoism. This subtle body carries with it all sorts of Samskaras or impressions, and Vasanas or tendencies, of the individual soul. The subtle body moves towards heaven. When the fruits of good Karmas have been exhausted, it gathers for itself a new physical body and reincarnates on this earth plane.
Those whose conduct has been good attain good births and those whose conduct has been evil are thrown into sinful wombs or lower births.
The Devayana And The Pitriyana
When a man who has practised meditation and worship dies, he first goes to light, then from light to day, from day to the bright half of the moon, from the bright half of the moon to the six months when the sun goes to the north, from that to the year, from the year to the sun, from the sun to the moon, from the moon to the lightning. When he comes to the sphere of lightning, he meets a person who is not human. That person leads him to the Karya Brahman or Hiranyagarbha. This is the Way of the Devas or Devayana.
He who has done works of public utility and alms, first goes to the smoke when he dies, from smoke to night, from night to the dark half of the moon, from the dark half of the moon to the six months when the sun goes to the south; and from that, he goes to the region of the forefathers, from the world of the forefathers to the ether, from the ether to the moon. He lives there so long as his good works will allow. When the effect of the good works is exhausted , he comes back to this earth by the same route. He first becomes ether, and then air, and then smoke, and then mist, then cloud, and then falls upon the earth as rain-drops. Then he gets into food which is eaten up by man, and finally becomes his child.
He passes through the various existences of the mineral kingdom, of the plant and of the animal realms - the Udbhijja (born of seed), the Svedaja (born of sweat) and the Andaja (born of eggs), before coming into the Jarayuja (viviparous or of placental origin).
How To Break The Bond Of Samsara
The chains that tie you to this wheel of Samsara or Bhava-Chakra or round of births and deaths, are your desires. So long as you desire objects of this world, you must come back to this world in order to possess and enjoy them. But, when all your desires for the mundane objects cease, then the chains are broken and you are free. You need not take any more births. You attain Moksha or the final emancipation.
You wander in this Samsara as you think that you are different from the Lord. If you unite yourself with Him through meditation and Yoga , you will obtain immortality and eternal bliss. Cut the bonds of Karma through Knowledge of the Eternal and enjoy the Supreme Peace of the Atman, thy innermost Self and Inner Ruler. You will be freed from the round of births and deaths. Freed from sin, freed from passion, you will become a Jivanmukta or liberated sage. You will see the Self in the self and see the Self as all.
The Concept Of Avatara
Avatara is the decent of God on earth for the ascent of man. The Lord Krishna says: - Though unborn, the Imperishable Self and also the Lord of all beings, yet brooding over nature which is Mine own, I am born through My Own Power. Whenever there is decline of righteousness, then I Myself come forth. For the protection of the good, for the destruction of the evil-doers, for the sake of firmly establishing righteousness, I am born from age to age - (Ch. IV-6, 7, 8).
The Doctrine Of Grace
The Bhagavatas had their own scriptures called the Pancharatra Agamas which expounded the cult of Vasudeva and which were, therefore, looked upon by them as being equal to the Upanishads. Their religion was based on Gods Grace to erring humanity. It, therefore, greatly emphasised the doctrine of Avatara or incarnation and popularised the immortal stories which were afterwards collected together in the Harivamsa, Vishnu Purana and the Bhagavata Purana. If you study these books, you will clearly know about the glory of Lord Krishna.
You can attain God-realisation through worship of Avataras like Krishna and Rama. Many have already attained God-realisation. Tukaram, Ramdas, Surdas, Mira Bai, Tulsidas and several others have seen God face to face. Their powerful writings bespeak of their high spiritual attainments.
Degree Of Gods Manifestation
There are Purna-Avataras (full incarnations), Amsa-Avataras (partial incarnations), Avesa-Avataras (inspirational incarnations), etc. The Lord Krishna has sixteen rays. He is a Purna-Avatara. He still exists. There are His Nitya-Lilas in Go-Loka or Celestial Vrindavana.
It is only ignorant, deluded souls who speak against the doctrine of Avatara, who say that the Lord Krishna was a human being only. They have not studied properly the holy scriptures. They are Tamasic persons with little understanding. They cavil and carp. The Lord Krishna says: - The evil-doing, the deluded, the vilest men, they come not to Me, they whose wisdom is destroyed by illusion, who have embraced the nature of demons. Such is their fate. -
Friends! Worship Rama or Krishna at all times with all your heart and with all your mind. Glorify Him in your heart. He will soon reveal Himself to you and you will feel His Presence. You will attain immortality and eternal bliss. Glory to Avataras. Glory to the Lords, Krishna and Rama, the Avataras of Lord Vishnu! May their blessings be upon you all.

How to have Certainty in an Uncertain World

08/18/2010 BLOG: How to have Certainty in an Uncertain World We are living in an uncertain world and in uncertain times. And deep inside of us, this uncertainty makes us long for certainty in our lives. The only thing that is certain in this world and that can give us the certainty we so deeply desire is our true Self. Our true Self is eternally the same. That’s why it is called the Eternal Self. It is mighty and omnipresent. That’s why it is also called the Mighty I AM Presence. And it is one with all and everything. That’s why it is also known as the Monad, the word Monad coming from the Greek, meaning “one.” So the only thing that is certain and eternally the same is our Eternal Self. However, having collectively cut ourselves off from God and our God Self and having chosen to identify with our physical bodies instead, most people are (erroneously) certain about the illusionary and transitory world we live in but they are uncertain about the truth of God and their Eternal Self. The Integrated Ascended Master realizes that the key to have happiness and inner peace in a constantly changing world is to disidentify with the mortal physical body and uncertain world and to identify with the Eternal Self and Mighty I AM Presence that is eternally and divinely the same. The mantra of the Integrated Ascended Master is, “I AM THAT I AM. AUM.”

We've all heard about the Akasic Record.. but how many of us truly understand the subtle meaning and implications of this mystery? Check out this really cool article from the vaults of Theosophy on the subject!
Akashic Records

The Akashic Records (Akasha is a Sanskrit word meaning "sky", "space" or "aether") are said to be a collection of mystical knowledge that is stored in the aether; i.e. on a non-physical plane of existence. The concept is common in some New Age religious groups. The Akashic Records are said to have existed since the beginning of Creation. Just as we have various specialty libraries (e.g., medical, law), there are said to exist various Akashic Records (e.g., human, animal, plant, mineral, etc). Most writings refer to the Akashic Records in the area of human experience.
Akashic Records - History of Akashic Records

Some who believe in the Records claim that they were used by ancient peoples around the world, including the Indians, Tibetans, Egyptians, Persians, Chaldeans, Greeks, Chinese, Hebrews, Christians, Druids , and Mayans. The belief is that the ancient Indian sages of the Himalayas knew that each soul recorded every moment of its existence in a "book", and that if one attuned oneself properly then one could read or view that book. In Egypt, it is said, those who could read the Akasha were held in high standing and were often found advising Pharaohs on daily activities and dream interpretation. A Chinese gentleman named Sujujin was reported to need only the first name of anyone to access the Akasha and describe their life history; another Chinese seer, named Tajao, explored a variety of topics in the Records which span over two thousand years.
The Vedas of Hindus and the language of Sanskrit itself are said to have been extracted from Akash.
In Surat Shabda Yoga cosmology, the Akashic Records would be located within the causal plane of Trikuti.
Believers claim that the Druid cultures of England and Wales (400-900) demonstrated the ability to access the Akasha. To gain access to the Akasha, the famous seer Nostradamus claimed to have used methods derived from the Greek oracles, Christian and Sufi mysticism, and the Kabbalah. Individuals who claim to have consciously used the Akashic Records include : Charles Webster Leadbeater, Annie Besant, Alice Bailey, William Lilly, Manly P. Hall, Lilian Treemont, Dion Fortune, George Hunt Williamson, Rudolf Steiner, Max Heindel and Edgar Cayce.
Despite claims that the Akashic Records have been used by mystics throughout history, the term itself, along with the concept of an aetheric library, originated with the 19th century movement of Theosophy . Skeptics suggest that the concept of Akashic Records has been attributed indiscriminately and inappropriately to a wide range of historical religious figures and movements.
The theory has also been rejected by the scientific community, due to a lack of any independently verifiable evidence.
Clairvoyance, Esoteric cosmology, Plane (cosmology), Morphogenetic fields
Akashic Records - Description and explanation of the Akashic Records

The Akasha is said to be the library of all events and responses concerning Human Consciousness in all realities. Every human therefore supposedly contributes and has access to the Akashic Records. It is claimed that to gain access into the Akashic Records, every individual human can become the physical medium, and various techniques (e.g., yogic breathing, visualizations) can be employed to quiet the mind, become a "witness", and achieve the focused, preconscious state necessary to access the Records. While in the Akashic Records and viewing the past, both the events and responses are said to be visible. This can be compared to seeing a full color movie with a plot and characters. When viewing the future, the events are known, but the responses are only probable. Based on an individual's responses in the past, the Akashic seer/reader can investigate probable future responses and give the highest future probability. A simple illustration of this might be witnessing several alternate endings to the main characters in a movie (e.g., Run, Lola, Run). However, at some point in the evolution of the Akashic reader, a state of unification and awareness can be achieved whereby even the future responses are known with absolute clarity instead of only as a probability.
Akashic Records - Specific accounts of the Akashic Records

In Theosophy and the various New Age-related faiths, the Akashic Records are records of all knowledge, including all human experience down to the finest detail, held in the universe. The Akashic records resemble a library and are also compared to a universal computer (some would say the 'Mind of God').
The Akashic Records are referred to by Edgar Cayce, who stated that each person is held to account after life and 'confronted' with their personal Akashic record of what they have/not done in life in a karmic sense. This is not however a process evaluated by the supposed limited lowly earth plane mind--i.e. the brain--but one fathomed by the higher mind or one's 'super-consciousness'.
Jane Roberts in the Seth books describes a different version of a similar idea when Seth asserts that the fundamental stuff of the universe is ideas and consciousness, and that an idea once conceived exists forever. Seth argued that all ideas and knowledge are in principle accessible by "direct cognition". Direct cognition is similar to or perhaps identical to intuition and is said to allow direct knowing without time elapsing and without knowledge needing to be transferred e.g. in speech or text. This is similar to what Robert Monroe refers to as rotes in his out-of-body book trilogy.
Some writers believe that free from and independent of all religions and faiths, there exist many libraries or record repositories such as the Akashic library throughout the universe, albeit on various planes of existence.
According to Max Heindel's Rosicrucian writings, the Memory of Nature (Akashic Records) may be read in three different worlds (planes). In the reflecting ether of the Etheric region there are pictures of all that has happened in the world - at least several hundred years back, or much more in some cases - and they appear almost as the pictures on a screen, with the difference that the scene shifts backward.
The Memory of Nature may be read, in an entirely different manner covering the essence of a whole life or event, in a higher world, theWorld of Thought, also known as Mental plane, in its highest subdivision: the Region of Concrete Thought and, last, it may be read in the World of Life Spirit, covering events from the earliest dawn of our present manifestation, but only Adepts and higher spiritual Beings are able to reach the reading of this higher Memory (or Records).

“Over coming all Inner and Outer Obstacles using the Destroyer Archetype in Service of God and your Spiritual Mission on Earth!

“Over coming all Inner and Outer Obstacles using the Destroyer Archetype in Service of God and your Spiritual Mission on Earth!Allowing the Universal and Cosmic Emenations of Primordial Perfection to Manifest and Externalize through you in your Earth Life Psychology and your Spiritual Life!Bringing in God/Godess/Mother Father Gods Divine Perfection through you and as you,for you are that!”
Todays lesson is on using the Destroyer archetype to over come obstacles and challenges that face us on the Universal Ecclectic path of Synthisis.Whenever we as light Love and Power Workers set out to do anything in this World be it in the Area of Re structuring and Transforming Government and Politics,Re organizing and Restructuring The Education System Re organizing and Transforming the Business World Be it Re organizing and Re vamping the Creative Artistic Worlds re arranging and Transforming the Scientific Fields ,The Transformation and Reformation of the Religious and Spiritual Communities and Organizations of this Planet we will always come against obstacles and challenges.This can be seen clearly and currently through the Astrological Configuration of the Saturn Uranus Opposition which represents and Externalizes/Materializes/Spiritualizes this Planetary Aspect.Uranus Representing the New Paradigm structure system and Saturn representing the Old Current System structure.For an opposition to work favourably each Planetary Emenation must be in total integrity and honesty with its self and fully express its in ate current and emenation and thereby maintain the Integrity purity and perfection of the Greater Planetary Solar Galactic and Universal Reality that is Gods perfection.There for we as Sons and Daughters of the One as Incarnations of “All that is” as Cosmic Walk Ins for the Mahatma we must be true to our Selves above all else so that the plan and greater Cosmic Scheme can work out through us to us and as us.For to do any less then our all to give any less then our all would be to jepordise the integrity of Gods Divine Reality and hence negate the Perfection of God/Godess Reality.That being said Realized Integrated and Demonstrated we must then Choose to when facing obstacles and challenges /tests that we inevitably will run into we must use the full measure of our Personal Power/Destroyer Archetype to destroy the Old Form and create the way for the New System Structure to be build up from the Destruction of the Past.This is done at the Solar level at an absolute organic natural and harmonious manner that may seem the limited understanding 3rd Dimensional Perception for all in everything lies within the Great Sphere of Universal Perfection that is God/Godess eternal reality.Again so we must use and allow the full expression of the 1st Ray Energies and archetype to express through us in re organizing and re structuring our Physical Earth Life our Psychological Consciosuness and our Spiritual Ascension Program so that we can develop integrate and demonstrate the Ideal.When ever we meet an inner or outer obstacle that challenges or tests our Idealized Perception of Perfection and our understanding and knowing of that we must claim our 100% personal Power and choose to over come this obstacle.We must commit to learning this lesson no matter what and as Jacob did we choose to hold on to God and the Angels Feet until He/They bless us as we would have it be!We commit no matter what to the outcome we seek and take action until “Thy Will be Done!”No matter how long no matter how hard no matter what the cost,our Mission Puzzle Piece and Planetary Mission are of the Utmost and we will not rest or stop until that Be done Fully Until we complete our Mission fully and perfectly as God would have us do it!We do not stop until we can say “It is done” We get up and “carry our Cross” We commit to “Being Faith full until death so that we can receive the Crown of Life!We commit to overcome all obstacles inner and Outer In service of God and our Spiritual Mission on Earth!

"THE WORLD WILL NOT END IN 2012!"

THE WORLD WILL NOT END IN 2012
By Carlos Barrios
Carlos Barrios was born into a Spanish family on El Altiplano, the highlands of . His home was in Huehue tenango, also the dwelling place of the Maya Mam tribe. With other Maya and other indigenous tradition keepers, the Mam carry part of the old ways on Turtle Island ( North America ).
They are keepers of time, authorities on remarkable calendars that are ancient, elegant and relevant. Mr. Barrios is a historian, an anthropologist and investigator. After studying with traditional elders for 25 years since the age of 19, he has also became a Mayan Ajq'ij, a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide, Eagle Clan.
Years ago, along with his brother, Gerardo, Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars. He studied with many teachers. He says his brother Gerardo interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge.
"Anthropologists visit the temple sites," Mr. Barrios says, "and read the inscriptions and make up stories about the Maya, but they do not read the signs correctly. It's just their imagination... Other people write about prophecy in the name of the Maya. They say that the world will end in December 2012. The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed. The indigenous have the calendars, and know how to accurately interpret it, not others.
The Mayan Calendars comprehension of time, seasons, and cycles has proven itself to be vast and sophisticated. The Maya understand 17 different calendars, some of them charting time accurately over a span of more than ten million years. The calendar that has steadily drawn global attention since 1987 is called the Tzolk'in or Cholq'ij.
Devised ages ago and based on the cycle of the Pleiades, it is still held as sacred. With the indigenous calendars, native people have kept track of important turning points in history.
For example, the day keepers who study the calendars identified an important day in the year One Reed, Ce Acatal, as it was called by the Mayans. That was the day when an important ancestor was prophesied to return, "coming like a butterfly." In the western calendar, the One Reed date correlates to Easter Sunday, April 21, 1519 the day that Hernando Cortez and his fleet of 11 Spanish galleons arrived from the East at what is today called Vera Cruz, .
When the Spanish ships came toward shore, native people were waiting and watching to see how it would go. The billowing sails of the ships did indeed remind the scouts of butterflies skimming the ocean surface. In this manner was a new era initiated, an era they had anticipated through their calendars. The Maya termed the new era the Nine Bolomtikus, or nine Hells of 52 years each. As the nine cycles unfolded, land and freedom were taken from the native people. Disease and disrespect dominated.
What began with the arrival of Cortez, lasted until August 16, 1987 - a date many people recall as Harmonic Convergence. Millions of people took advantage of that date to make ceremony in sacred sites, praying for a smooth transition to a new era, the World of the Fifth Sun."
From that 1987 date until now, Mr. Barrios says, "We have been in a time when the right arm of the materialistic world is disappearing, slowly but inexorably. We are at the cusp of the era when peace begins, and people live in harmony with Mother Earth. We are no longer in the World of the Fourth Sun, but we are not yet in the World of the Fifth Sun. This is the time in-between, the time of transition. As we pass through transition there is a colossal, global convergence of environmental destruction, social chaos, war, and ongoing Earth changes."
All this, Mr .Barrios says, was foreseen via the simple, spiral mathematics of the Mayan calendars. "It will change," Mr. Barrios observes. "Everything will change." He said 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.
At sunrise on December 21, 2012 for the first time in 26,000 years, the Sun rises to conjunct the intersection of the Milky Way and the plane of the ecliptic. This cosmic cross is considered to be an embodiment of the Sacred Tree, The Tree of Life, a tree remembered in all the world's spiritual traditions."
Some observers say this alignment with the heart of the galaxy in 2012 will open a channel for cosmic energy to flow through the earth, cleansing it and all that dwells upon it, raising all to a higher level of vibration.
This process has already begun, Mr. Barrios suggested. "Change is accelerating now, and it will continue to accelerate." If the people of the earth can get to this 2012 date in good shape, without having destroyed too much of the Earth, Mr. Barrios said, "We will rise to a new, higher level. But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way."
A Picture of the Road Ahead:
From his understanding of the Mayan tradition and the calendars, Mr. Barrios offered a picture of where we are at and what may lie on the road ahead. The date specified in the calendar Winter Solstice in the year 2012 does not mark the end of the world. Many outside people writing about the Mayan calendar sensationalize this date, but they do not know. The ones who know are the indigenous elders who are entrusted with keeping the tradition.
"Humanity will continue," he contends, "but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human. We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies. All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions, are converging now. There is no time for games. The spiritual ideal of this era is action. Many powerful souls have reincarnated in this era, with a lot of power. This is true on both sides, the light and the dark.
A Call for Fusion:
As he met with audiences in Santa Fe, Mr. Barrios told a story about the most recent Mayan New Year ceremonies in . He said that one respected elder, who lives all year in a solitary mountain cave, journeyed to Chichicastenango to speak with the people at the ceremony. The elder delivered a simple, direct message. He called for human beings to come together in support of life and light. Right now each person and group is going his or her own way. The elder of the mountains said there is hope if the people of the light can come together and unite in some way.
Reflecting on this, Mr. Barrios explained: "We live in a world of polarity: day and night, man and woman, positive and negative. Light and darkness need each other. They are a balance. Just now the dark side is very strong, and very clear about what they want. They have their vision and their priorities clearly held, and also their hierarchy. They are working in many ways so that we will be unable to connect with the spiral Fifth World in 2012.
On the light side everyone thinks they are the most important, that their own understandings, or their group's understandings, are the key. There's a diversity of cultures and opinions, so there is competition, diffusion, and no single focus."
As Mr. Barrios sees it, "The dark side works to block fusion through denial and materialism. It also works to destroy those who are working with the light to get the Earth to a higher level. They like the energy of the old, declining Fourth World , the materialism. They do not want it to change. They do not want fusion. They want to stay at this level, and are afraid of the next level. The dark power of the declining Fourth World cannot be destroyed or overpowered. It's too strong and clear for that, and that is the wrong strategy. The dark can only be transformed when confronted with simplicity and open-heartedness. This is what leads to fusion, a key concept for the World of the Fifth Sun."
Mr. Barrios said the emerging era of the Fifth Sun will call attention to a much-overlooked element. Whereas the four traditional elements of earth, air, fire and water have dominated various epochs in the past, there will be a fifth element to reckon with in the time of the Fifth Sun: ether. The dictionary defines ether as the rarefied element of the Heavens. Ether is a medium. It permeates all space and transmits waves of energy in a wide range of frequencies, from cell phones to human auras.
What is "ethereal" is related to the regions beyond earth: the Heavens. Ether, the element of the Fifth Sun, is celestial and lacking in material substance, but is no less real than wood, stone or flesh. "Within the context of ether there can be a fusion of the polarities," Mr .Barrios said. "No more darkness or light in the people, but an uplifted fusion.
But right now the realm of darkness is not interested in this. They are organized to block it. They seek to unbalance the Earth and its environment so we will be unready for the alignment in 2012. We need to work together for peace, and balance with the other side. We need to take care of the Earth that feeds and shelters us. We need to put our entire mind and heart into pursuing unity and fusion now, to confront the other side and preserve life, to be ready for this Moment in History."
Mr. Barrios told his audiences in Santa Fe that we are at a critical moment of world history. "We are disturbed," he said. "We can't play anymore. Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action. Everyone is needed. You are not here for no reason. Everyone who is here now has an important purpose. This is a hard, but special time. We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history."
Mr. Barrios offered a number of suggestions to help people walk in balance through the years ahead. "The prophesied changes are going to happen," he said "but our attitude and actions determine how harsh or mild they are. We need to act, to make changes, and to elect people to represent us who understand and who will take political action to respect the earth. Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action. It's very important to be clear about who you are, and also about your relation to the Earth.
Develop yourself according to your own tradition and the call of your heart. But remember to respect differences, and strive for unity. Eat wisely. A lot of food is corrupt in either subtle or gross ways. Pay attention to what you are taking into your body. Learn to preserve food, and to conserve energy. Learn some good breathing techniques, so you have the mastery of your breath. Be clear. Follow a tradition with great roots. It is not important what tradition, your heart will tell you, but it must have great roots. We live in a world of energy. An important task at this time is to learn to sense or see the energy of everyone and everything: people, plants, animals.
This becomes increasingly important as we draw close to the World of the Fifth Sun, for it is associated with the element ether - the realm where energy lives and weaves. Go to the sacred places of the earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter. We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work.
One simple but effective prayer technique is to light a white or baby-blue colored candle. Think a moment in peace. Speak your intention to the flame and send the light of it on to the leaders who have the power to make war or peace. We Have Work To Do."
According to Mr. Barrios this is a crucially important moment for humanity, and for earth. Each person is important. If you have incarnated into this era, you have spiritual work to do balancing the planet. He said the elders have opened the doors so that other races can come to the Mayan world to receive the tradition. The Maya have long appreciated and respected that there are other colors, other races, and other spiritual systems.
"They know," he said, "that the destiny of the Mayan world is related to the destiny of the whole world. The greatest wisdom is in simplicity," ... . "Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It's not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It's encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way."
