I just wanted to comment on the Mayan Apocalypse Doomsday theory ( The End of the World and 2012 ) story that is posted on your site. I have enjoyed reading the stories.
I’ve always been intrigued with studying the Mayan calendar. My studies have brought me to learn that the Mayan myth never believed 2012 was the end of the world. It was NEVER deemed as a doomsday theory, that is ONLY what modern people today have warped it into. They were jealous, excited, and wished they could have experienced 2012, because it was a day of great spiritual awakening, people who survived the destruction leading up to that day, would get to witness the world renewed and great peace.
They believed we had been in cycles before. You’ll have to research the complex math. The fact of the Mayan myth, was that it was a theory of a new age. NOT the end of the world. There are several cultures to this day that still follow the Mayan calendar, and still believe in this same tradition and culture and folklore.
White Calf Buffalo Woman is a sacred spirit originating from Cree and Stoney native cultures. There are a few other tribes in the area that may have adopted Cree customs, but it is originally the Cree way. When a white buffalo is spotted, it will bring the New Age. NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. It represents a time of great peace. A spiritual awakening. That is the REAL version of what native peoples believe to this day. We never believed in a doomsday or apocalypse. We do not fear the Mayan prophecy either, but we like to know for ourselves, that it is the days leading up to that day, we have to prepare for. Throughout destruction will come great peace, type of thing. The white buffalo, is Cree, as Cree stands for Buffalo Nation. I know this because my ancestry is Cree.
Every aboriginal tribe has their own view on this one theory. For example, where I live, it is the Coast Salish, K’omoks people. They believe when the white raven is spotted, the new age is coming. A few white ravens were spotted recently, up here on Vancouver island, Canada. They were gorgeous. The town was flocked with scientists and bird watchers.
There are probably other tribes that signify albino animals coming, means the new age, but I can’t claim to know why it’s so crazily entwined. Maybe because white is a pure color, I have no idea, but the weird thing is, these myths… were made in ancient days, and they are coming true now.
Anyway if you research the Mayan math and myth properly, you will come to see it was never an ending of the world theory. And its highly interesting, because it delves into their spirituality. For example, they believe the universe is part of the death realm. They think that when the winter solstice happens, it’s going to line up Pacal (sun god) with the Dark Road to Xibalyia (the milky way and galactic center) and that this in itself, is going to open up the death realm to earth and this is going to create a huge spiritual awakening that would be amazing to witness. This is why they calculated astronomy to lead up to that day. They think we are heading to either the 4th or 5th dimension (I can’t remember which).
However, modern astronomers and scientists have found proof that this day is going to send the world out of whack, but they are still vague. They say that the sun lining up dead centre with the galactic centre (what the Mayans have been tracking through precession for decades) is not a good thing, it will be a huge event, that will possibly create floods, and earth disasters. This is where the doomsday theory came from. But. Astronomers used the myth to find their logic. Why are they excluding it now? It never was the end of the world, and just because the charts say it will effect the balance, it doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world.
