Mayan Flavor

It seems now that my postings are taking on a distinctive Mayan flavor. It has always been the case that the blog was inspired with Mayan origins, as the name Blue Spectral Eagle represents my Mayan galactic signature. Everyone has a galactic signature based on the Mayan calendar and your date of birth. If you would like to know yours you can go to the Mayan calendar decoder site and enter your birth date to find out. My galactic signature helped to confirm what I already knew about myself, that I am a visionary concerned with global consciousness. I was sort-of stunned when I read my galactic signature for the first time. It was so true.

Most of my Mayan perspective comes from Jose Arguelles, author of The Mayan Factor and credited for bring the term 'harmonic convergence' to the world in 1987 when his book was published. Arguelles sees himself as the re-incarnation of a Mayan king, Pactal Votan, c. 800 C.E. Indeed it seems it is Argelles' life work to keep the message of Pactal Votan alive today at this very crucial time in earth's history. The message and work of the Mayan people is galactic in nature. And if we look closely at the Mayan ruins, pyramids (and the pyramids of ancient Egypt) we can decode the important messages that these truly monumental structures are telling us. These structures are monumental in time and space seeking to awaken the earth inhabitants in this time of shifting consciousness or evolutionary awareness. This message can be translated and decoded. An important part of this is the mayan calendar which in itself sets time from a galactic perspective. What is even more incredible about this is that it sets our moment in time, basically now, on a precipice of an end, and consequently a beginning of a 26,000 year cycle. The anticipated date of this event is winter solstice, 2012. But I don't believe the exact date is so important, but acts as a general signpost, a buoy in the sea of the evolving creative cosmic dream. This is not an arbitrary point on the calendar, but represents a time in which the solar system is returning to planar alignment with the galaxy.

Another aspect of Arguelles' work focuses heavily on the 13-moon calendar, as the ancient Mayans used. He believes it is absolutely crucial for people to stop using the current crooked-in-time Gregorian calendar and that we begin to use the more balanced 13-moon calendar of 28 days per month. He advocates the harmonious rhythms of exactly four weeks per month. Each month always starts on a Sunday and each month always has a Friday the 13th. With 28 days per month and 13 months this equals 364 days, one less than a year. The extra day is made up with a "day out of time" observed during the summer, what is now our Gregorian month of July. The Gregorian calendar is attacked for its stiltedness of variation of monthly lengths between 28 and 31 days. Also for such absurdities as calling the 10th month of the year "October" which actually means 8th month. You will notice other months are misnamed as well. It is argued that this confusion is quite deliberate, to keep the populace veiled from the true cosmic harmonies. How we conceptualize time profoundly affects how we live, the rhythms of life and our connection to the greater cosmos. To return to a society living in awareness of the true cosmic rhythms would have profound implications on people's way of life, inner strength and happiness. Is it hard to imagine what a society adjusted to cosmic frequencies would be like? I would like to call your attention to a group of researchers in NW New Mexico studying native ruins there. This effort is known as The Solstice Project.

Lessons Learned

Seems there have been a couple of significant turning points in recent months when I 've made a realization about how to be in the world or what direction I am to go. I'll start with the first lesson of last December. It was a dark time for me, perhaps I am "seasonal affective" but then again I'm not calling it a disorder. In fact, it is in perfect order to be affected by the seasons. After all everything in nature is affected by the seasons and so should we. I don't believe we always have to be depressed during the time of the winter solstice, but I was very much so last solstice. I was experiencing a fatalistic view of having to work some job that I didn't really want. I was feeling squeezed by money, or perceived lack of income. It felt hard, harsh and I had the feeling that I didn't want to live life anymore except if it weren't for a few pleasant distractions during the holiday season. So the week shortly after the New Year I fell into deep despair. I lay on my couch for a night and then a morning in a dreadful state of hopelessness worrying about being unemployed. Later that morning the phone rang inviting me to an interview for a teaching job. That shifted my mood and I began to think that there was some hope. But the interesting thing about the whole event of falling into despair was that I knew that I was choosing despair the whole time. I could at any time shift my mood, if only I believed that I should. I learned the bout of despair was unnecessary and I resolved that even if I was on the Titanic and it was sinking, I would put on my tuxedo and go dance with the orchestra. I knew that I would not allow myself to fall into despair again.

The second lesson has to do with clarity of purpose. Since I've been to two interviews to be a math teacher this month, I still haven't been hired. And this past week I came down with one of the most painful colds I can recall having in recent years. After four days my head was just pounding. I thought for sure I must have a fever, but I was surprised to find I was in the normal range when taking my temperature. Finally I took some pain medication that worked and I was able to sleep quite a bit. I felt much better the next day. In the process I also decided that I no longer wanted to be a teacher. At least not now. In fact I have a different vision. With that decision I've now set the stage to allow the higher vision to take place. I'm allowing the life I want to be created. A big part of the vision for me has been wanting to manifest wealth and abundance in my life. I believe I am indeed starting to do that. I am as well seeking happiness, love and grace in my life each day. As a result doorways are opening up to allow me to have the sort of life that I dream. Part of this lesson is learning to heal the fears. Particularly the fears that lead one to suffer lack of abundance.

It is as waking to a new reality, shifting to a deeper level of heart consciousness. We can be happy. We should endeavor to create happiness in our lives and in our world every day. We begin to do that by holding our vision for happiness each day, using our inner vision to paint the pictures we want to see in our lives. As I have been reflecting on this principle, I was particularly attuned to this quote while re-reading Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi:

"Awake in God, true saints effect changes in this dream-world
by means of a will harmoniously attuned to the Creative Cosmic Dreamer."

I'm seeing my life in current circumstances as a resuscitation. I have to re-awaken, to get to know what it is that I am really about. I have to live in the world in such a way as to be happy. It seems impossible at times. So, at the core of this is the belief that it is possible to live life in such a way as to be happy. In fact, I go as far to believe that this is like the primary lesson in life to learn. So many people are unhappy, living each day in drudgery. Life to many is like a prison. We are stuck to bear the burdens that are set before us. But here is a radical thought. Perhaps we are more able to create our world as we like than we realize. That with our thoughts, focus and passion we change, mold and shape our reality. Opportunities and possibilities lie awaiting all around us all the time. When we decide on a direction and purpose, pursue it with passion, then the infinite creative forces of the universe become our co-conspirators in a good way.

To live this way is to awaken to a stream of consciousness within us, that we likely have left ignored or not believed in before. We have to resuscitate ourselves to breathing the streams of light of creation. I know this may seem far out, but the words are only pointing to a particular reality which could be described in many different ways. But in this case I am referring to it as expressed by Master Kirael and described on the website Elven Awakening . In this case my life is an experiment that I must make. I must pursue the dream that I can be happy. I must believe that I can live life with a spiritual reality here on earth, in harmony and peace. I must believe that I can create beauty and harmony as a way of life everyday in my existence.

Sometimes I think it is because I feel too much. I don't seek a rat race as a way of life. I seek to touch my soul to the divine each day, feeling connected to source and energy. I seek quiet and solitude. I seek to be a vision of sanity in what otherwise appears to be an insane world.

Giving me a break

Well it seems that the blog really hasn't taken off as well as I had thought. Its not that people aren't coming to visit the site, which hasn't happened, but that I haven't been writing in it as much as I would like to. Why? I'm beginning to think the idea is too rigid, that I have some concept that I have to convince myself that is real, which I believe it is, and convince everyone else. But if I do this to the exclusion of being real myself, that is, presenting myself authentically then nothing at all of worth is accomplished. So today I'm starting from a new perspective. I have to do something. In some ways I am desperate. My life maybe falling apart at the seams from appearances. With this I mean financially, career-wise. The fact is I have no job and haven't had one since October. My savings is all used up and I'll have to start tapping into my IRA (a small retirement fund which won't last long either) to pay rent next month, unless something else happens. So, I've had a break from the awful world of work. I don't understand how people do it each day. It seems that most people get up and go to a job that they hate every day with stoic resolve. They do it because they have to, they have to pay the bills. I have the audacity to think that life doesn't have to be that way. That somehow I can be happy. I know that there are jobs that people enjoy and perhaps I've enjoyed at least one or two jobs I can think of to a certain extent. So this is my focus: job, money, success. I can't write a blog about anything else, because this is what my life is focused on right now. This is what I am using the power of vision to create for myself. It is necessary. It is what the world is demanding of me.

I need a break. I've been lucky to take a break from the tedium of the world. Now I need a financial break. I want the financial abundance to continue living life happily. All power of visualization is being directed to that purpose. I remain in gratitude for all things that I do have, and all things to come.
