2012 Spiritual Aspect

The Fifth Sun
Bonnie Moss (c) 2011- 01
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, describing in the sky a 
great cross of stars and planets. 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. 

Scholars from various disciplines have dismissed the idea of a catastrophe in 2012. The 
apocalyptic forecasts are considered as pseudoscience by astronomers and scientists. NASA 
compares 2012 doomsday fears to the approaching end of the millenium namely the Y2K.

There were books, some scary, some supposedly prophetic that an immense cosmic wave will 
change everything- for good or evil. Some forecasts were interpretations of Nostradamus quatrains. 
Some authors warned of catastrophic floods, earthquakes, famine and a shift of the Earth's 
magnetic  poles, and other calamities. January 1, 2000 came and went – so much for the Y2K scare.

There will always be end- of- world predictions. Backtrack to March 10,1982, a prediction of 
the Jupiter Effect, a cataclysm that never occurred. Do people hope for the world to end? Many 
of the proposed alignments or theories have not been accepted by scholars.

Another Maya- Galactic Harmonic convergence was predicted for August 16-17, 1987. 
The event became a global phenomenon with thousands gathering at the Earth's “ acupuncture
points” to create a unified and synchronized bio-electromagnetic collective battery. The date 
passed with only colorful newspaper stories and a Doonesbury satire.

Eschatology is made up of two  Greek words “ eschatos” meaning last or final and “logos” meaning 
word study. Eschatology is a branch of Christian theology that deals with biblical  studies of end of  
times prophecies, events like the Rapture, Second Coming of Christ and the Tribulation, Millenial  
Kingdoms and Future Judgment. Primary books in the bible on end of times prophecy are in the book 
of Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelation. Eschatology also  deals with the study of what follows the end of time.

Is there a new awakening on December 21, 2012?  This phenomenon includes a range of eschatological 
beliefs of a transformative and cataclysmic events on this day. Believers base this proposal on the 
Mayan Long Count calendar which is said to be the end date of a 5,125 year-long cycle, which  
includes astronomical and numerological formula related to this date.

New Age interpretation of 2012 believes that humanity may undergo positive and spiritual 
transformation. Believers in a new awakening are now consciously trying to make this world a 
better place through good thoughts, words and deeds. With global consciousness, it is possible 
to break through the barriers and tear down the walls of indifference in our global society.

John Major Jenkins tells us this in his introduction:in Cosmogenesis 2012:

The eclipse is the path traveled by the sun, moon, and planets through the sky. Twelve constellations
lie along the ecliptic, and the sun passes through all twelve during the course of one year. The ecliptic 
cross over the Milky Way at a 60 degree angle near the constellation Sagittarius. As such, it forms a cross 
with the Milky Way, and this cosmic cross was called the Sacred Tree by the ancient Maya. The cross 
form was also known as the crossroads. Amazingly, the center of this cosmic cross, that is right where
the ecliptic crosses over the Milky Way is exactly where the December solstice sun will be in A.D. 2012. 
This alignment occurs only once every 25,800 – 26,000 years.

This alignment will open a channel of cosmic energy that will flow through the earth, cleansing it and 
all that dwells upon it, raising it to a higher level of vibration. This change has already began and will 
continue  to accelerate according to Mr. Barrios.

The Fifth Sun and The Return of Consciousness 

The Mayan calendars are sophisticated and with a vast comprehension of time, seasons and cycles. 
It must be considered that the Mayans and other spiritual traditions understand that evolutionary 
energies from the Galactic Centre vary in their quantity, quality and properties over time. Hence, 
the division of earth, air, fire, water and ether with associated cosmic calendars and cycles that 
take this into account. 

The following is titled Message From the Mayan Elders of The Eagle Clan, Guatemala and we are told 
by Don Pascual, Wise elder of the Mam Maya: 

The Mayan prophecies speak to us of the changes towards the fifth Ajaw (fifth sun), on the famous 
date of December 21, 2012. This date begins the period of 5,200 years. This is a cycle of wisdom, 
harmony, peace, love, of consciousness and the return of the natural order. It is not the end of the 
world as many from outside of the Mayan tradition have misinterpreted it to be. 

The first cycle (Ajaw/sun) was a feminine energy and its element was fire. 

The second cycle (Ajaw/sun) was of masculine energy, and its element was earth. 

The third cycle (Ajaw/sun) was a feminine energy and its element was air. 

The fourth cycle (Ajaw/sun) is a masculine energy and its element is water. 

The fifth cycle (Ajaw/sun) will be a fusion of both feminine and masculine energies. It will be 
a transition where there won't be any more confrontations between the polarities. It will bring 
balance and there won't be hierarchy of one over the other. Both energies will support each other. 
It is why this period is called one of harmony, the kingdom of love and the return of consciousness. 
Its element will be the ether

This fifth Ajaw/sun comes with the power of transmutation. To reach this state of supreme harmony, 
it will be necessary to create the balance of the forces of the light and the dark. This is where the 
importance of the call of the Mam elder comes into place - the quest for the unity, the return of the 
natural order. 

This call is urgent in the face of the prophetic times in which we are living - principally for the spiritual 
guides and conscious people. At this time, we need to unite and create a belt of light that will contrast 
with the negativity.
