2012 is the completion of the ancient Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar Cycle – but the Maya of today no longer track the Long Count Cycle. Conservative estimates say it’s been at least 500 years since they have, since at least the time of the Spanish Invasion. The last Long Count Calendar inscription recorded in stone is from 909 AD, more than a thousand years ago.

Currently, there are at least 7 million Maya living today. The largest populations of contemporary Maya inhabit the Mexican states of Yucatan, Campeche, Quintana Roo, Tabasco, and Chiapas, and in the Central American countries of Belize, Guatemala, and the western portions of Honduras and El Salvador.

Depending on who you talk to, one can find evidence that some living Maya endorse the 2012 date as being of critical importance, while some may not be aware of it, or do not necessarily agree with its projected significance. Some think it is a matter for the shamans and priests, and do not relate to the westernized apocalyptic themes we’ve married the 2012 date to.

“We are now in a transition period called the ‘Cycle of the merge of the dark and the light.’…The cycle of the light will come in full force on 12/21/2012Mother Earth as a living entity will transcend to another level or frequency of consciousness and a new and special era will begin…This era will be very positive. ‘Let all beings rise. Let not one or two stay behind. ‘The times are here for total brotherhood…The spirit beings, different philosophies; different races must begin to weave together all knowledge to create the tapestry of harmony and balance”

From a different perspective most contemporary Maya continue to view these cycles of World Emergence purely in terms of ‘cycles within cycles’ Many are aware that the 2012 end date was supposed to signify such a transition, but they are not altogether convinced that this date is as meaningful as we Westerners think it is.

Along these lines, 13th Generation Quiche Maya Priest and Head of The National Mayan Council of Indigenous Elders in Guatemala representing 440 Maya tribes, is hesitant to pinpoint 2012 as the certain date of destiny. He is weary of putting false claims on the exact timing of a process he knows is in motion. However, according to them whom they authorized to speak to the world on his behalf, he has recently declared that we are now in the Window of the End of Time, meaning the closing of the Great cycle is upon us. He has said that due to the fulfillment of the Hopi Blue Star prophecy on October 24, 2007, brought by Comet Holmes, it is likely that the transformation to a New Cycle of the Sun will occur sometime between now and 2016.

When we visited Guatemala last winter, we had the honor of participating in sacred fire ceremony with Grandfather Don Alejandro. After the ceremony, he shared with a small circle of us in regards to 2012. He stated that amongst the Maya of today, they can’t collectively say for sure when the cycle is ending because almost all of their calendars and books (and countless sacred artifacts) were brutally destroyed in 1562 by the Roman Catholic Bishop De Landa. (Only 3 Maya codices remain intact.)

According to him, the changes that are coming are already happening now and could culminate very soon or perhaps over the next several generations. He doesn’t want the people of the world to have expectations that lead them to say that nothing ended up happening in 2012 and discounting the wisdom of the Maya ancestors.

Specific dates aside, Don Alejandro shares the possibility that our shift into the new cycle of the Sun will be marked by a time of 30-70 hours of prolonged darkness. If this occurs, he stresses the importance of us not fearing this darkness, remaining calm and knowing it will pass. According to them, they also mention the possibility of a physical pole shift of the Earth’s axis.
