Mayan Prophecies and True Spiritual Evolution

Mayan Prophecies and True Spiritual Evolution

In this article I am questioning the nature of the mayan prophecies done according to the Calleman’s interpretation of the Mayan calendar and the events held according to his visions.

I am suggesting a critical outlook at what we understand from spiritual evolution. I believe we cannot neglect the traditional views on spiritual evolution and we need to be very cautious of falling into the traps of our own egos.

Finally I am also offering a meditation of compassion as a practice of humility that potentially can help us to rise above our own illusions.

Mayan Prophecies Spiritual Meditation

Predictions of a huge economic downfall

It has been a long time since the July 17 – 18 Conscious Convergence has passed and the 6th night of the Galactic Underworld will end in 38 days.

Let me remind ourselves that Dr. Calleman expected a huge economic downfall during the 6th night (November 8, 2009 – November 3, 2010). And following this prediction, big expectations occurred about major socio-economic events that would bring big changes.

Although some economists still expect a second decline of economy and mass strikes in Greece, India, China, Spain, Romania and France give some impressions in this direction, I still cannot see major changes along the way.

However, even if all these major socio-economic changes predicted by the Mayan calendar would be manifesting, I still have one question. How can we be sure that these mayan prophecies will lead to spiritual maturity and enlightenment of the humankind?

A sudden catastrophe won’t lead to true spiritual evolution

Beyond mayan prophecies there is something important to consider.

I think we, the Mayan calendar club members, are making a fundamental error. That is to ignore the nature of the spiritual evolution and think that everything will be done in the blink of an eye.

Yes we are aware that the Mayan calendar is not about forces that are separated from humanity such as Planet Nibiru, Pleiades, Photon belt, UFO’s… etc.

Therefore the Mayan calendar is not about a sudden catastrophe and it is not a saviour in itself that will help us awaken automatically. It is all about processes that lead to evolution.

And I have to admit that the waves of the Galactic Underworld helped me tremendously to realize spiritual realities. I become more mature spiritually and this goes on in an exponential way. However the more wise I got the more I realized that I am far from being enlightened.

Spiritual transformation requires complete surrender

What I realized is that a tangible spiritual transformation requires a feeling of complete surrender along with a tremendous aspiration, love, patience, determination, will power and awareness. Without these the spiritual awakening will not fully come into being. And even if it comes, it will not last long.

To be able to see these facts it is enough to look at the traditional spiritual paths… Sufism, Yoga, Buddhism or Christian mysticism… All these traditions take years-long disciplined and passionate practices as a foundation.

Unfortunately these truths have been forgotten in the New Age culture of today.

Learning from the traditional spiritual paths

In Sufism there are 7 levels of the Nafs (Ego being). In Christian mysticism the spiritual heart has 6 levels of depth. And in Tantra there are different levels of grace. To be able to pass through these requires a life time, sometimes several life times…

According to Ken Wilber, the spiritual seeker of today “wants to be cooked in a microwave oven.” Think about how long it took for Mevlana C. Rumi to be cooked…

The Mayan calendar, in the way which it’s interpreted by me, gives an impression that the enlightenment will happen in the speed of a microwave oven and almost in an automatic way… This in fact is an illusion…

The Mayan calendar says that the conditions of the divine plan have never been so good for those who sincerely want to evolve… It is only for those who act…

And, in fact, the most fundamental action is to surrender completely… As the Hopis say, the ones who surrender themselves into the flow of the wild river are going to evolve quickly… But truly, how many people can do it?

It is not possible to move on as long as one says “I am this body” or “I am this mind”… As one of the biggest sages of 20th century Nisargadatta Maharaj says “I am not this body, I am not this mind” then who am I? Maharaj replies as “I am That”…

The conclusion is that the act of awareness, in other words, the existence of consciousness is the essence of God itself.

The error of the New Age

However this beautiful teaching of Maharaj has been superficialized in the New Age movement. People who read his books forgot that he realized these truths in years-long silent retreats and meditations. They started walking around saying “I am That” with the “I am That” one person who is jealous, selfish, and full of fear in his subconscious became “That”.

This is perhaps the biggest error on a mystical path… To take the ego and make it God…

This is why many people in the rush of modern life are getting lost. Because they are trying to step forward in their own paths without receiving guidance from a true master…

Spiritual evolution cannot just be a hobby

Spiritual evolution cannot remain as a hobby… If it remains a hobby it cannot be spiritual evolution… To be able to experience true awakening in a bourgeois life is only available for an infinitesimal amount of people who are loved tremendously by God. Maybe one in a million. Well, are you that one in a million? If not, it is best to think over this very well.

Do you want a mediocre life? Do you want a life that is shaped by your own selfish desires or is shaped as a channel for the manifestation of the Divine Will, lived in complete surrender? Your choice…

This is where my spiritual insights do not fit well with what we are doing, suggested by Carl Calleman or similar experts on the topic of collective peace, oneness or evolution.

If we are alerted only to think about the outer and deny the inner, no real transformation can take place. Remember, outside is significant for the left brain and inner is important for the right brain. If we want to synthesize our brain hemispheres we cannot ignore what the right brain wants. And I think most of the collective evolution events such as the Conscious Convergence and similar ones are coming from the left brain understanding.

Although their intentions are right brainistic (focus on the collective) their methodology is left brainistic (focus on the outside). One has to realize that the so-called oneness consciousness cannot come, unless one has worked and found it on the inside.

The Divine plan does not need our efforts

Also, one major illusion that we are prone to believe is that “we are doing something, for the Divine plan to manifest.

The Divine plan does not need our efforts.

The best effort we can do is to surrender completely… Not passively, but offering our entire being which in fact is a big hassle… As Maharaj says, surrendering completely and awakening to our true self is enough for the world to change… Or as Gandhi says we can only “be the change that you want to see in the world.

I sent an email to Carl, with similar critiques. And he affirmed “I have also stopped creating expectations about external changes,” and that he has shifted towards delivering a co-creator training where the emphasis is on reshaping our inner landscape of the world. I don’t know any details about the co-creator training that he is delivering and my current opinion is that it is debatable whether this training supplies real solutions to the spiritual crisis we are in.

Meditation of Compassion

Up until this point you might think that I am just a critic, criticizing negatively and providing nothing helpful. Well, that’s not the case. Depending on my limited knowledge I am able to offer a simple method that may be a solution to the problem I identified.

Therefore, I am going to offer a meditation that can be applied on the beginning of the 7th day (November 2-3, 2010), beginning of the Universal Underworld (February 10-11, 2011) or any day basically…

This practice is the famous Tong Len from the Buddhist tradition

We can call this the meditation of compassion. I think compassion is what the world needs the most today. And it is difficult to find these days…

Therefore, I am suggesting to do this meditation on any day or significant days according to the Mayan calendar… One recent opportunity is doing it on One Peace Jerusalem day, September 26, 2010.

Well then, what is this meditation of compassion?

We usually live our lives in a shell.

Things about ourselves are often on their way – our money, health, psychology, relationships… But not always… When things go wrong we either lose hope or say “Damn it!”

This is not the case for those who bring the spiritual heart into the center of their lives.

In Sufism, Love is likened to a rose with its thorns… To lead a real life without accepting the sorrow is impossible. According to a Sufi life is about having joy when sorrow appears

This Buddhist meditation is not different… Having compassion starts from our own selves…

Let us start the meditation…

Now please sit down in a silent and calm way and close your eyes (after reading this of course)… Focus on your breathing for a while… Observe how the breath goes in and out of your chest… Just observe your breath for a while will calm down your mind…

Then focus on the feelings that awaken in your chest area… Focus on your spiritual heart, the source of love… According to Sufism and many other mystical paths the source of our being lies in here… The path leads to Divine love also passes from here… Feel this love, be aware of it…

When you live with this awareness for a while you can go in a different spiritual state… And if you get lost in this love, it is ok (Be aware, not in your mind)… Try it again and try moving to the net step that I will explain in a bit…. But even if you cannot move on to that state, this is still good because our world needs so much love… As I said earlier it might take many practices to reach more advanced states…. Patience, patience, patience…

When your focus is on this feeling of love, contemplate on your own being… Look at yourself from outside… See your weaknesses, pains and problems… And every time you inhale bring these weaknesses, pains and problems into your spiritual heart… Share your own pain with yourself… Tears can come, this is very natural…

Every time you exhale, give yourself love…

With every inhale, take in the pain to your spiritual heart. And with every exhale, send yourself the love that comes from your spiritual heart…

The next stages of this meditation…

In this meditation, the second stage is about doing the same work for someone you love… Do it for someone significant to you, who is in a difficult situation…

In the third stage, do this meditation for someone that you don’t know, someone that is neutral for you. A beggar you see on the street or someone else who is in a difficult situation… If you cannot think of someone just think of millions of people suffering in Pakistan…

In the fourth stage, do this mediation for someone who is your enemy. Do it for someone whom you have anger or hatred, or someone that you fought with.

In the final stage do it for people whom you think are the Devil itself…

It is very difficult to pass through these stages at once… Move slowly step by step.

If you do it 15-20 minutes every day, you will progress a lot… It might take days, weeks or months to move onto the next stages… Don’t lose your hope… as you move on you will be surprised at how the technique helps you to move beyond your ego and open you heart… Also you may get more and more spiritually mature…

This will help you to live a life with complete surrender and with an open heart…

Final words

I hope that this article has given you more insight into how to interpret mayan prophecies and true spiritual evolution. And I hope that the meditation for compassion helps you on your journey.

To close off, I want to share a story for inspiration…

Once a wise man was walking in the forest… He sees a tiger and her babies… Mother tiger is so tired and hungry that she lies almost unconscious… She has no more vital energy for going on hunting… With compassion wise man extends his arm to the mouth of the tiger… However the tiger is so weak that she cannot chew the man’s arm… Man notices this and opens a wound in his arm and drops blood to the tigers mouth… So that the tiger gains some power to be able to chew… According to the story this man, the tiger and her babies are born as the nearest disciples of Buddha…

Wishing you a beautiful weekend and blessed transformations,
