There is another way to view and understand the entire Mayan calendar legacy. It’s a view without fear of an Armageddon, rather it’s a vision of a completely harmonious human future. I’m of the belief that the Mayan calendar message, is a guide, pointing us to recognize the potential for our World that lays just beyond our materialistic reach.

An experience beyond the active mind, in a post-satsang silence.
At the end of the first satsang I attended in India, I chose to remain sitting in silence, and had an experience which I later came to understand, was a ‘vision of non-duality.’
There were several other people who were also settling in to continue their engagement with silence. I opened my eyes briefly, noticing the relative proximity of others.

And faster than the time it takes to write these words, the acceleration surged to a cascading of images from my life. It was all there, a galaxy of the individual moments that have made up this earthly existence.
I recognized, that I was involved in each of those moments, that each of them was what it was – because of my actions and any choice in how I interpreted the contents. There rose an impressive wonder and gratitude for the immense scale of it all. This has been my creation!
