Instead, he maintains better era will start Dec. 21
When the current Mayan calendar cycle ends Dec. 21, the world will not cease to exist, says a Mayan elder.
"There is a lot of information of what is going to happen on that date. The scholars say that the Mayan calendar ends, the world ends. But we, as Mayans, don't know anything about that," Elder Miguel Angel Chiquin said speaking through a Spanish translator Monday night at Colorado State University-Pueblo.
"The great teachings that our ancestors have left us over the centuries, the 21st of December, we will be moving over a cosmic bridge of light and hope at the great event of our fifth sun." Chiquin, known as Abuelo Maya (Maya Grandfather), spoke on the implications of the ending of the current Mayan calendar to a group of about 50 people Monday in the Occhiato University Center.
A native of Guatemala, Chiquin said when the current calendar cycle of more than 5,000 years ends Dec. 21, a new one will begin.
The event, which Chiquin described as being one of the biggest events of our cosmic lives, is something the Mayan people are looking forward to experiencing.
"The message we come to share with you brothers and sisters is that this great event of the fifth sun, the great event of the 21st of December 2012, is not only for the Maya Pueblo, it's for all humanity," he said.
He said the cosmic bridge that all humanity will start to travel Dec. 21, is going to help make for a better world.
"If it is true that the great events that are coming are marked by the Maya calendar then as the Mayan ambassador, we invite each one of you to come aboard that cosmic ship of the fifth sun."
Although there has been a lot of misinformation about death and destruction accompanying the end of the Mayan calendar, he said for the Maya Pueblo those are all false assumptions.
"We as Mayans since 1992 have begun to prepare to enlighten our white path and to light our yellow path, not only for the Maya Pueblo but for all humanity," he said.
Chiquin said in preparing to cross the cosmic bridge, people must prepare their spirit.
"Brothers and sisters, we are all part of the cosmos and each one of you are stars that shine in your own firmament," he said.
Chiquin told the crowd to not be afraid of the end of the calendar cycle.
"In just a few months, the fifth sun is coming but it is for all of you, it's for all of humanity," he said.
"The message of the elders is that the moment has come to break the mysteries and to end the mental sabotage. Do not have fear," he said. "We'll see you in the next 5,000 years."
I forget...do we turn our clocks forward or back that night?
I was hoping it was going to end but I will drink the bottle of Scotch I was planning anyway.
oh, yeah, the global consciousness and all that. gawd are things gonna get ug-ly.
Shoot. I’m gonna have to keep working.
Q: Will the world end next December?
A: Your guess is as good as Mayan.
The 0bamas will getting ready to vacate the White House. The Exorcists and fumigators will follow..
Ah, man. I’ve already sent out my farewell
the calendar is off by a month. Jan 20 the USA will have a chance to begin a better future.
Love that cartoon.
Dec. 22 is approx. half way between Nov. 6 and Jan. 20.
I know what you mean.
They should have called in Az-tech support.
My question would be that: If the Mayans did indeed predict the end of the world ....... Well.... consider this ..... there have been about 514 leap years since Julius Caesar created it in 45BC. Without that extra day every 4 years today would be July 28th, 2013. Also, the Mayan calendar did not account for leap year days .... so technically shouldn't the world have ended 7 months ago if the Mayan prediction was accurate?????
The good news: I'll only have four more mortgage payments.
