New Reality of Awareness

Why should society be rushing headlong into a New Reality of awareness at this particular point in history?

The sudden awakening of holistic, spiritual thought in the 1960s affected the younger generation of that era. Those who were impressed and changed by, for example, the Summer of Love in the year 1967 will be at the peak of their economic and political influence by the year 2010.

They will, by then, be the Elders of society, the wise ones that younger generations look to for guidance when things go wrong.

If society is ready to start moving en masse into The Shift after the year 2010, you have to wonder what cosmic events might be in synchronicity with such timing. Could there be some grand, cosmic event about to occur?

How about an imminent event which occurs just once every 26,000 years? Would that pique your curiosity? The ancient Mayan civilization existed up until 830 A.D., when they suddenly disappeared from their cities, leaving no traces behind as to where they may have moved.

Despite an apparent lack of precision instruments, the astronomical knowledge of the Mayan culture exceeded today's level of knowledge in many ways.

They not only knew the precise orbits of the planets in our solar system, but also the orbits of the stars in our galaxy.

They had even cataloged major cosmic events going back more than 400 million years. The Mayan calendars are masterpieces which illustrate the repeating time-spirals of cosmic cycles within cycles within cycles.

The Mayans spoke of waves of influence which pass through the galaxy; waves which are so influential that they are capable of triggering the formation of suns from collections of gases. They also spoke of waves of galactic influence which have a profound effect upon human history on planet Earth.

One such critical point is a major galactic synchronization which is due to occur in the very near future, on December 21st, 2012.

This date marks the end of a 26,000 year cycle of a style of human experience, as well as the end of a 5,200 year cycle within that, and also the end of many more sub-cycles, all in synchronicity with each other. On December 21st, 2012, when the Mayan calendar again resets to zero, a new 26,000 year cycle begins.

Now, 26,000-year cycles don't suddenly change from an old cycle to a new cycle in the blink of an eye. Such a huge cycle influences a period of overlap, both before and after the exact date of the change to a new cycle.

The overlap period before the year 2012 would have included its early influence upon culture in the 1960s, when the current transformation in consciousness began in earnest.

The question is, when future generations look back on our current era, will they see the year 2012 as the pivotal point within The Shift? Could the year 2012 mark a turning point where the old type of humanity, Homo sapiens (knowing man), shifts into wholeness as the second tier of consciousness begins to reach popularity?

Will the second tier be seen, in retrospect, as a new phase of human evolution, a kind of Homo holisticus? One thing that is certain at this point is that The Shift is a real phenomenon and, as the Cultural Creatives and memes studies demonstrate, it is happening today.

The Shift is not a temporary by-product of the baby boom generation, or of any other generation in modern society.

It is not a passing fad and it is not going away. The Shift is the result of a cosmic cycle which is unfolding and, slowly but steadily, increasing the frequency of all consciousness upon the planet.

The Shift is, to put it simply, the most wonderful transformation in recorded history. This is where humanity gets to build, literally, Heaven on Earth.
