I have returned from the Conscious Life Expo. A lot of people there were focusing, even obsessing on the year 2012 when it is popularly believed that time will somehow change, somehow end, because the Long Count of the ancient Mayan Calendar completes.

I closed my book Predictions for 2008 with the following essay. No need to wait for Mayan Calendars to recycle four years from now in 2012. We are in a death and rebirth cycle right now, if one understands the prophecies of cousins of the Maya.


The Hopi Native American seers of the Southwest have passed down a prophetic oral witness of the birth and death of worlds. These prophecies were inspired by primal memories of the earliest hunter-gatherers who first arrived in the Americas sometime between 12,000 to 40,000 years ago. Prehistoric memories may have their naked tale clothed and adorned with the embellishments of hyperbolic myth. Suffice it to say that each end-of-the-world saga sounded like it originated from some global catastrophe, an upending of the climate that disrupted the stasis of the world as they knew it. The survivors collected together either by divine help or consequences emerged from their safe places to repopulate and reseed a new civilization of greater wisdom with lessons learned. During the age that followed, people would thrive in harmony with Nature for a time until the wisdom was forgotten, requiring purification must come again.

The Hopi say three times the world was destroyed and renewed. We are currently living at the end time for the Fourth World. This fourth turning in the cycle of worlds will begin with the new year of 2008.

The Hopi seers fulfilled the last duty of their prophecy by going public in 1948 when traditional Hopi Elders picked Thomas Banyacya (1910-1999), one of four Hopi medicine men, to spend the rest of his life being the messenger of the Hopi prophecies to the world. Since 1948, all of the Hopi final signs of warning have been fulfilled. What should then follow, any moment, is what they call the Purification by Fire that will destroy the Fourth World and give birth to the new Fifth World.

The Final Warnings include the dropping of the “gourd of ashes” on Southwestern Native American lands (the testing of atomic bombs in New Mexico and Nevada). The arrival of the Red, the people of the Swastika and those of the Sun in conflict with the people of Turtle Island (Americans). The swastika represents the Nazis and the sun-flag of Imperial Japan during the Second World War and the Red Communists of Russia and China from the Cold War. Other warnings also came true. Wires were suspended in the air (telegraph lines), Iron horses did appear (trains), and cobwebs crisscrossed the sky (contrails of jets and planes). Pieces of the Moon did come back to earth starting in 1969 through 1972 from a half-dozen Apollo missions.

The last warning before the time of Purification begins has the White Brothers build a permanent teepee in the sky.

This is the International Space Station, flying like an artificial star sign through our skies since on-orbit construction began in 1998.

The time of the next destruction-rebirth of the world begins any moment NOW, in 2008 — not 2012. Hopi Elders such as Oraibi say the Great Spirit is telling them to send a message of invitation:

You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour. Now you must go back and tell the people that this is THE HOUR. There are many things to be considered. Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in right relation? Where is your water? Know your garden. It is time to speak your truth. Create your community. Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader. This could be a good time! There is a river now flowing very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold onto the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its own destination. The Elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above water. And I say, see who is there with you and celebrate! At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner, and in celebration. For we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation.

And I say to you in closing, this, this, a thousand times — THIS! Is the key of passage for embarkation on the Noah’s Ark of Consciousness.

This vessel of human consciousness is within all of us. It can bear blissful witness and generate positive and loving response ability for navigating through the coming storms of Great Purification in the Cosmic Night that begins in 2008 and will last until the dawn of the next new age in 2044. Your ticket is waiting, watching, beyond the beyond:

From where do you come?
For who is it done?
Touching without fingers
Beyond the beyond

A singing not heard
A knowing not learned
Speaking without knowledge
Lit candle unburned

From who is its source?
Power without force
A message from nowhere
The voiceless discourse

I strain eyes and ears
For answers so near,
Behind heard and seen
Pure-pouring austere

Behind sky and earth
Under tree and hearth
It vibrates everywhere!
Beyond death and birth

Laughs at unheard jokes
Wishes free of hopes
The Lord of No-thingness
Guides an empty boat

Hits with shadow stick
Kills sudden and quick
Unsuspecting egos
So prideful and sick

And heals without balm
Painful wounds of long
The hurts of many lives
Mortality’s song

And reveals for thee
Potentials to be
Glories from now-here
Perceptions fly free

Behind the mirror
Hides the observer
Cleaned of gritty judgments
A sage, a seer

In hopeless ease
Of changeless seas
Forever beginning
Forever at peace

And now-here you come
For no one has done
The touching of being
Beyond the beyond

(From Predictions for 2008)
