Well, there certainly is an awful lot going on just now, isn’t there? Paradigms and belief systems are being crushed beneath the weight of the indifferent corruption which they spawned, as a gnarly case of reality cramps sets in among the masses across the planet. The planning of future wars while still mired down in the ones of our own making appeals to fewer people by the day, and thus the awakening surges like a tsunami across a planet in the throes of transformation, between Scylla and Charybdis, as it were. Eroded by built in corruption, the mighty capitalist empire falls in upon itself now as the law of unforeseen consequences plays merry hob with the gatekeepers ability to keep it all together. Humpty Dumpty.
Simultaneously with those preparing for Armageddon & a side order of apocalypse; there are those who are preparing for something altogether different, something transcendent they have been waiting their entire lives for, which is now at hand as we at last pass out of the Kali Yuga and into the gates of Aquarius. How very interesting and convenient it is to have all of this happening just as the renowned Mayan calendar ends one Baktun and begins another. It rather makes sense.
Where we are today reminds me a whole lot of the fall of the Mayan empire, as they too fell to the combined foes of conspicuous over consumption of finite resources, war, drought, disease, and overpopulation. Yes, the Maya were masters of time, and certainly architecture, as what they built and maintained for 2000 years was more advanced than the Babylonians or even the Egyptians. Still more impressive is that they did all of it without the benefit of metal tools, the wheel or even pack animals. Like us, they were also an aggressive and bloodthirsty lot given to wholesale human sacrifice, which included children painted with Maya Blue pigment and sacrificed to the water god by being thrown into the Cenote, a natural forming limestone sinkhole holding ground water.
That they also used the same source for drinking water was no doubt a contributing influence to their eventual downfall…which brings me to my question for today…
Where Did the Maya Go ?
In the modern day state of Chiapas, Mexico at the site of the ancient Maya city of Palenque, stands the largest known Mesoamerican stepped pyramid. It’s called the Temple of Inscriptions and is a funeral monument for King K’inich Janaab Pakal, who ruled the great Maya empire from age twelve for nearly seventy years. Pakal was responsible for much of the construction and expansion of Palenque, as well as the empire and in the fullness of time, was deified. As was the general custom of Mayan rulers, it was a very big thing to be able to trace one’s linage directly back to the ancestors from which they sprang forth…the sky people…so it’s no great surprise they said that King Pakal communicated with the ancestors.
Something I have wondered all my life is how can science ignore the fact that a great many indigenous people, including the Maya, have origin myths which include sky people coming from the heavens to teach them – and in every single ancient culture there is a promise by the gods, to one day return! Clearly the Maya cosmology included the existence of portals to other worlds or dimensions, many in the form of the T shaped Tau Cross carved into solid walls, and other times as windows themselves. This same exact thing has been discovered in Egyptian, Hopi, and Anasazi sites as well. Essentially, the Tau cross represents the sacred tree at the center of creation. Consider also that the Maya deity Kukulkan, the feathered serpent, is nearly identical to other flying feathered serpents found in other sacred belief structures around the world; such as the Nagas in the Mahabharata from ancient India.
Hmmm, perhaps something else that science is reluctant to discuss, or investigate. Considering the Mayan creation story; is it so unreasonable to conclude as some do, that in the end, they returned from where they originated ~ the sky? Perhaps Erich Von Daniken was right about the depiction carved into King Pakal’s sarcophagus lid being that of the king himself at the controls of a flying craft of some sort.
Many years after king Pakal’s reign, the Mayan empire was in it’s final stages of disintegration. After the northern city of Calakmul sacked Palenque in 711 it was pretty much downhill from there, as the many various city-states began warring with each other for supreme dominance, over a dead civilization. The question remains…What happened to the Maya? Where did they go?
Did some of them make use of portals, while others departed aboard spacecraft? Or, did they all just eventually die off or become assimilated into other cultures? Perhaps, as many conjecture, some of the Maya may well have departed their homeland and migrated somewhere else; as humans tend to do when their homeland is devastated. If so, where might they have gone to start over and begin again, what lands might have called to them with the promise of a peaceful future?
