2012 apocalypse : Galactic Alignments in Ancient Traditions & the Future of Humanity

2012 apocalypse :
Galactic Alignments in Ancient Traditions & the Future of Humanity

I delivered relief supplies to Quiché Maya villages in the Guatemalan highlands. Mesoamerican studies is a relatively young field. In researching and writing seven books, I have focused on decoding the ancient Mayan calendar and its associated cosmology, and I have been drawn to address one unanswered question: Why does a large cycle of time in the Mayan Long Count calendar end in the year that we call AD 2012?
Mayan scholars have spent almost a century deciphering the Mayan calendar’s relationship to our own. Utilising nested cycles of 20, 360, 7200, and 144,000 days, the Long Count culminates in a World Age cycle of 13 baktuns, which equals 5,125 years. After decades of interdisciplinary analysis, Mayan scholars Joseph T. Goodman, Juan Martínez, and J. Eric S. Thompson determined that the 13-baktun cycle of the Long Count calendar could be confidently located in real time, and its end-date would occur on in the Long Count, which corresponds to December 21, 2012. Because the end-date of the 13-baktun cycle of the Mayan Long Count calendar occurs on a winter solstice, I felt that the ancient Maya may have intended to indicate something with that end-date. For example, periods of time within the Long Count are named by their end-date; we are currently in the 4 Ahau katun of the Long Count calendar because the last day of this katun falls on 4 Ahau.
Generally, Mayan metaphors draw from nature. After nine years of research into the 2012 question, in 1998 I published my book Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 apocalypse, presenting an astronomical explanation for the Mayan 2012 end-date. The precessional phenomenon that is responsible for bringing the solstice Sun into alignment with the Milky Way is caused by the slow wobbling of the Earth on its axis. Izapa – a progressive ceremonial site containing astronomical alignments and monuments portraying the Mayan Creation Myth – is evidently where the Long Count calendar was instituted.
My research shows that the ball court at Izapa is ground zero of the knowledge that a future alignment of Sun and galaxy would occur. This “solstice-galaxy” or “galactic” alignment has great significance within Mayan mythology and cosmology. In my books, especially Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 apocalypse, I show how this alignment scenario was encoded into basic Mayan institutions such as the Creation Myth, the sacred ballgame, and king accession rites.

My reconstruction of the true intention of the Mayan calendar end-date, though seemingly quite novel, gains support in my subsequent research, for I have discovered that such “galactic” concepts were recognised in other ancient cosmologies (e.g., Egyptian, Islamic, and Vedic).
The book, Galactic Alignment: The Transformation of Consciousness According to Mayan, Egyptian, and Vedic Traditions (Inner Traditions International, 2002 – available from New Dawn Book Service), examines evidence that the alignment of the solstice Sun with the Milky Way galaxy (the “galactic alignment”) played a significant role in Old World and Eastern religious iconography and metaphysical traditions. Tracing the galactic knowledge back to ancient Vedic India, it appears that its manifestation in Islamic, Greek, Mithraic, Celtic, and Medieval Hermetic traditions is merely a nascent resurgence of a knowledge that is very ancient indeed.
It must be emphasised that this ancient “galactic cosmology” is based in empirical astronomy. The periodic alignment of the solstices with the galactic plane is basic astronomy, although discussion of it is largely absent from astronomy text books (Jean Meuss’s 1997 book Mathematical Astronomy Morsels is an exception).

As a researcher of ancient traditions, I can point to certain interpretations and reconstructions that are implied or are even unavoidable given the facts – for example, I can say with confidence that solstitial alignments to the galactic plane were significant players in ancient traditions that addressed questions of eschatology, cosmology, human salvation, and the nature of time. For example, a chapter in my new book explores Oliver Reiser’s work that suggests the Galactic Centre is a major factor in the evolution of life on Earth. My own path of discovery suggests the following: Beyond the insatiable quest for empirical physical evidence lies the transcendent challenge of metaphysics, and our materialist paradigm could benefit greatly from a serious look at the profound insights of traditional metaphysics.
I believe that many researchers are currently focusing overmuch on ancient technologies. assumes that the presence of recognisable technology is the best barometer of how advanced an ancient culture was. However, my surprising discoveries of an advanced Mayan cosmological science suggest that what is more important to explore, and what speaks clearly to a void in modern values, is the spiritual insight we find in ancient traditions. Many of us have studied and practiced various spiritual disciplines derived from ancient Hindu, Mayan, or even Egyptian teachings. The ancient Mayan civilisation understood the universal principles that create and sustain the world. These “first principles” underlie the physical laws that modern science has used to create technological miracles, but the first principles of Mayan sacred science embraced a much larger universe in which human beings were seen to be multidimensional and capable of traveling beyond time and space, beyond the confines that limit modern science with its “laws” that are valid only in the physical three-dimensional plane. We are amazed by the ancient Maya and their baffling, complicated calendar science, and how they built their huge stone cities without using beasts of burden. The ancient Vedic civilisation is not particularly celebrated for material achievements and yet, like the Maya, they enjoyed a sophisticated understanding of celestial cycles as well as a deep understanding of human spirituality. Modern historical investigation continues to push back the dating of the origins of civilisations and the advent of material technologies. This explains the ancient Maya’s isolation and independent genius which nevertheless had tapped into the same doctrines also found in ancient Vedic and Egyptian cosmology. In part 3 of the book Galactic Alignment, I explore the metaphysical ideas of the Traditionalist school, in particular the writings of esteemed scholar Ananda Coomaraswamy and symbolist philosopher René Guénon. In the Vedic doctrine of World Ages, Kali Yuga is the final age, the age of greatest spiritual darkness, and its end signals the shift to a new World Age. Clarifying some undeveloped areas within Traditionalist thought, and drawing from the insights of various Vedic commentators, I identify the galactic alignment of era-2012 apocalypse as the key to the timing of this transition, anchoring the Vedic yuga doctrine to a real astronomical event. What if ancient civilisations were aware of the Galactic Centre and the precession of the equinoxes, and that they believed that eras of galactic alignment – like the one we are struggling through right now – somehow contribute to the unfolding of consciousness on Earth?

The larger life-wave of humanity is at stake. The metaphor is about birth and death.
Unfortunately, few spend much time reflecting on death – the Great Transformer. That teaching is encoded into the Vedic theft of soma myth, and in pursuing its underlying wisdom regarding the transformation of consciousness, all of the book’s themes are integrated into the metaphysical importance of the solstice-galaxy alignment.
This brief introduction invites readers to explore more deeply the source material that contributes to my conclusions, including studies in sacred cartography, Mithraic symbolism, the Chaldean Oracles, Islamic astronomy, Vedic and Egyptian metaphysics, Hermetic studies, South American traditions, Christian architecture and iconography, and Mayan astronomy.5
For empirical scientists, astronomy is the central key that connects these questions to hard science, and the metaphysical concepts relating to these eschatological questions are, in fact, closely related to astronomy. Yet beyond empirical concerns, the role of galactic alignments in spiritual transformation is revealed as a core concept found in all of the major ancient traditions – in both the Old World and the New World. Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 apocalypse and Galactic Alignment by John Major Jenkins are available from New Dawn Book Service.

2012 Apocalypse : Why Enlightenment No Longer Matters?

2012 Apocalypse :
Why Enlightenment No Longer Matters?
Some regard it as becoming a Buddha or the completion of a human being. Some ascetic devotees have categorized it into several levels according to the type of sounds heard through the ears of the mind whereas others have argued that there is no such thing as enlightenment.

In spite of ongoing controversies, there is a general consensus on enlightenment among ascetic devotees. Enlightenment means the discovery of one’s inner Buddha-nature or true self through which one can obtain absolute peace of mind. It is also believed to offer one the freedom to leave the earth, enabling one to escape from reincarnation. Though there are still many controversies about the principles and operations of reincarnation, ardent wishes of ascetic devotees to escape from continuing the lives of suffering increase the attachment to enlightenment.

There are problems in most of the ascetic devotees’ perceptions of ascetic practice and enlightenment. First of all, they believe that ascetic practices are always good, and mundane everyday life has nothing beneficial to ascetic practice and enlightenment. However, there is no need to distinguish ascetic practice from everyday life if one agrees that the true purpose of life is to accumulate true knowing through vivid experiences. In other words, true knowing can be accumulated through not only ascetic practice but also everyday life.

The characteristics of accumulated knowing differ between ascetic practice and everyday life. Among the various relationships to be learned in a life, ascetic life offers intensive learning of the relationships with the heaven, the universe, and divine providence whereas everyday life mostly provides the learning of various human relationships. From the viewpoint of spiritual growth, however, one kind of knowing is not more important than the other, and thus ascetic life is not more important than ordinary life. There are only more or less urgent experiences from the standpoint of each soul’s progress and accumulated knowing.

One thing that ascetic devotees do not know well or misunderstand is the relationship between enlightenment and geun-gi (the original capacity to understand Buddha’s teachings), or consciousness level. Especially, most Buddhists assume that everyone has Buddha-nature and can achieve enlightenment through right practices. However, as I explained in other essays, humans are beings who become awakened little by little through numerous reincarnations. Enlightenment or the accumulation of true knowing can never be achieved at once but can only be achieved gradually through vivid experiences.

Sudden enlightenment may seem to exist from the viewpoint of the current life, but no such thing exists from that of long-term reincarnations. One’s enlightenment in the current life is only possible because enough knowing has been accumulated through one’s numerous past lives. One who does not have enough knowing accumulated through past lives or who has a low geun-gi cannot achieve enlightenment no matter how hard one may try.

We come to realize that ascetic devotees’ attachment to enlightenment is useless if we understand enlightenment as a special spiritual experience undergone suddenly by an opportunity when one has reached a certain threshold through sufficient accumulation of true knowing. The dream can never come true no matter what special ascetic practices they may try. The dream of enlightenment becomes another attachment to them, which may interfere with their spiritual growth.

While Buddha implied that a soul grows little by little through long-term reincarnations, referring to geun-gi, only few ascetic devotees seem to understand it correctly, and most Buddhist high monks seem not to try to mention it for various reasons. Thus, in the prevalence of the delusive story that anyone can achieve enlightenment through ascetic practices, sayings about the importance of ascetic practices has been passed on, being distorted and exaggerated.

Since enlightenment can never be achieved within a short time no matter how hard one may try, hastiness is unnecessary. Every soul grows step by step through all of the essential processes and progresses, as learning all the necessary things. Someday enlightenment may come naturally when true knowing is accumulated enough.

Another reason ascetic devotees should abandon the idea of enlightenment is related with the ongoing changes of the earth. Enlightenment is a unique experience on the earth, where various souls with different levels of consciousnesses coexist. The earth has been a material planet isolated from the universe, and all of the beings reincarnated into human bodies have had tough and vivid experiences.

Nevertheless, the earth is going through great changes, and its characteristics will completely change. Up to now, the earth as a special learning place and an isolated planet has been closed to outer space in principle. However, human beings—who are to be reborn—will be true “cosmic humans,” using various communication channels and freely interacting with beings in outer space. Thus, the reincarnation system, which prevented the souls from leaving the earth, will no longer exist, and enjoying absolute freedom by escaping from the earth will no longer be limited to the enlightened beings. In other words, enlightenment—a special event in spiritual growth that has been very meaningful to the souls on the earth—will completely lose its significance.

As the new era comes, words such as ascetic practice and enlightenment will gradually disappear. As everyday life becomes like ascetic practice and vice versa, there will be no need to talk about ascetic practice anymore. Moreover, as most people on the earth transform themselves into true “cosmic humans,” enlightenment will no longer have a special meaning.

Though it is true that everything in the universe keeps changing, the earth at the moment is particularly undergoing special changes which have never occurred since the start of modern civilization. They will start with energy changes and continue on to physical ones. Meanwhile, the meanings and significances of many teachings which have been regarded as orthodox are changing. As time goes by, teachings in the past will lose their significances, and the teachings of great saints, which many people have assumed as eternal truth, will be interpreted differently.

From the perspective beyond the Buddhist or Christian frameworks, the teachings of one of the most exemplary saints on the earth—Buddha or Jesus Christ—are also dependent on the period. Each man delivered his messages most suitable to the situations at that time and offered teachings that can effectively lead the people of that specific period. However, they never showed the whole picture of the universe, and not all of their teachings contain absolute value that is timeless. Many ascetic devotees still adhere to traditional teachings and orthodox practices. When we adhere to “orthodox” views, we can never escape from our own frameworks and egotism.

As the earth changes, many messages are now delivered to us through various channels. Many messages are the same, but there are also many messages that contradict one another. Blindly believing these messages may bring one to great confusion, but this can be avoided by using one’s inner guide system. People who can sense gi (subtle energy) can feel the energy from the messages while others can listen to their inner feelings. When someone speaks of cosmic truth, we feel touched and resonate with it. Many beings that have come to the earth for the earth’s Great Change have begun to awaken, and some of them have started their tasks, delivering messages from the universe. We can feel who the true workers are through our feelings or the energy that our bodies perceive. It is never appropriate to close one’s heart and distrust them for the reason that their teachings, words, and behaviors are different from those of traditional ascetic devotees or saints. Their levels of consciousnesses may be much higher than those of the traditional holy people. Sensing with your inner feelings and body before judging with your head is required of all the courageous souls in the earth that have chosen to live in this special period. 2012 Apocalypse


2012 : Toward the Consciousness of the Wholeness

2012 : Toward the Consciousness of the Wholeness

2012 apocalypse
The special journey, which I have not expected at all, and the change of consciousness induced by it were never easy or restful, but they caused an inner change that was beyond my imagination.

One afternoon in early April, never having had any expectation or anticipation, I encountered a message that said, “Leave immediately!” I left Incheon International Airport at that night without informing even those closest to me, let alone the university, and in the next morning arrived at Auckland International Airport in New Zealand.

As my aura field encompassing my body has been undergoing a great change for quite a while, I have been experiencing more and more physical pain because of people’s negative waves. After I arrived in New Zealand, such process grew more profoundly, thereby leading to a state where I became very sensitive to the surrounding energy. Thus, I began to instinctively avoid the energy released by people and animals and also started to worry seriously about how I am to live without any contact with the human world. Because of the waves greatly released by mass media, I could not think about watching TV, reading a newspaper, or surfing the Internet, and I entered a state where I could not but completely entrust running my website to other people.

As a country where energy pollution caused by humans is incomparably less pervasive than any other countries, New Zealand is a treasure house of energy where pure energy is left here and there. However, since it is also a place where people live, negative waves generated by human minds were polluting the surroundings and their livestock. Such negative waves were severe enough to instantly hurt and paralyze my body, so I could not help avoiding places where people gather. Furthermore, while driving, I was greatly hurt owing to the waves released by the vehicles running at the front and rear of my car or those approaching from the opposite direction. Wherever I went, I felt uncomfortable because of the energy absorbed at places and in space where people had slept or sat. I could not but live almost like a recluse who could not sleep or eat where people could do, and I needed to totally avoid places where they were active.

New Zealand is comprised of the North island and the South island; a lake located in the South island holds very pure and special energy. Because one has to drive awhile on unpaved roads of the ranches with grazing cattle and sheep, it is a secluded place where hardly anyone can be found even in the daytime. I stayed near the lake for two weeks to purify my body, especially the accumulated human emotions. My daily routine consisted of walking to the lake in the morning, spending time there, and returning to the lodge in the evening. During my stay there my body became more sensitive, but simultaneously the change of my consciousness was proceeding. As I received the pure and special energy hidden in New Zealand, my human emotions accumulated during the past lives, let alone this life, resolved. I turned to a state where I felt the wholeness, steadily distancing from the separate consciousness stemmed from an entity called “I”. Particularly, as I started to feel clearly the moments that I have lived throughout, recognizing myself as “Prof. Jang,” were an illusion, my consciousness slowly began to remain in the wholeness.

My change is not yet complete, but I have changed enough to live a new way of life, and my consciousness has transformed to one that always feels the wholeness, escaping from the illusion of separation. Such change is happening not only to me but also to many beings who sympathize with the Gaia Project, but my change may be felt more dramatic than that of others. Despite the sudden stop of my lectures last semester because of the trip to New Zealand, through the efforts of my fellow faculty members, I happened to lecture again this semester. However difficult the things happening may be felt, you will understand and accept them and even feel harmony in them if you watch the things happening, staying in the consciousness of the wholeness.

Recent Operations of UFOs

Recent Operations of UFOs

2012 apocalypse..

Yesterday’s news (October 10) of Seoul, Korea reported the sightings of hundreds of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) hovering over Gwanghwamun Street, the central business district of Seoul, for thirty minutes before vanishing. A video clip taken by a UFO expert photographer also appeared in the news. Although the media cautiously covered the incident because it was conscious of controversies that may be stirred up by certain groups regarding the UFOs’ validity, I felt the UFOs on the video were real, considering the movements demonstrated and the energies emanated from them. I feel that UFOs started trying to show their existence purposefully to the general public, contrary to the past. This mass appearance of UFOs is the second occurrence since they were seen flying in formation, witnessed in Mexico in June of this year.

One day, however, I found myself accepting the existence of UFOs naturally without a doubt. It was last summer when I first started to discover UFOs in the sky. Lying down on the ground of an island near Tong-yoeng Beach in Korea, I started to distinguish between the stars and the other objects in the sky, with the help from a person whose hobby was observing UFOs every night. Among the objects, I found many “special stars” showing such movements only possible to UFOs. At the moment, there are numerous UFOs in the sky. They vary greatly in their shapes, duties, and original dimensions. Also, most UFOs are here to carry out their tasks related with the Gaia Project (“UFO Guides”). These UFOs or space vehicles are of different shapes and sizes, depending on where they come from and what they do. They range from gigantic-sized ones similar to those seen in the movie Independence Day to smaller ones holding one or two beings. As to the UFO Guides, some of them oversee heavily populated regions respectively while others patrol around several regions. The UFO in charge of the entire Korean peninsula is stationed in a particular area, and it communicates with and controls all UFO Guides around the world.

Because UFOs are originally non-material, human eyes cannot see them unless they transform themselves into third-dimensional materials. Thus, the UFOs in the earth’s sky have not been witnessed by the general public except for special cases. In this regard, the hundreds of UFOs seen in the sky above Gwanghwamun Street a few days ago seem to have had the intention of demonstrating their existence. Their appearance may well be pertained to the Gaia Project, and I expect that there will be more purposeful UFO appearances like this one in the future.

Recent appearances of UFOs seem to be related to last month’s shutdown of the spiritual world of the earth and the souls’ boarding the UFOs. Since early 2005, beings who left their physical bodies were prohibited to enter the spiritual world. Recently, an order to board the stand-by UFOs were given to the souls hanging around in the material world after their physical deaths. Thus, the UFOs carrying souls have begun to leave for their own destinations since early October. The huge exodus of beings that had stayed on the earth finally began. The mass emigration of most of the souls in the earth—one of the key events of the earth’s Great Change that is to happen for the next few years— has just begun.

It is important for all humans on the earth to realize what period we are living in and to live with the understanding of the Gaia Project and its progress. After leaving their physical bodies, they will undergo a purification process and will leave the earth for outer space.

However, the Project Guides must carry out their individual tasks before the death of their physical bodies and thus need to purify themselves first before starting the tasks. The most important aspect in the course of purification is releasing all egotistic traits and preconceived notions accumulated so far. The extent of difficulties depends on how much preconceived notions one has accumulated during the many lives, especially the present life, on the earth.

The Gaia Project is proceeding with full preparation and careful concern.
