Re: << lovingpurelove >> Fwd: 7/7 Message of the Maya Elders, Somos Uno
- the Elders are heading to Arizona in two or three
days. I don't have any particulars yet, other
than keep checking sacredearthfound.org and
DiosasAncianos2012 and get on the mailing list
I did note however, yesterday, that the Dineh
(Navajo) staged a big multitribal presence during
the 2nd-half of the gathering, for the outdoor
ceremonies, including a Dineh elder who set up
the 'space' & orchestrated the dancing activities
after. I wasn't formally introduced, and don't at
the moment recall his name.

Sun sets every day, said Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, yet the

light through the night." His Maya name, Wakatel Utiw translates as

"We, the spiritual guides, we Elders, do not think about ourselves,"
said Shaman Don Alejandro and his wife Elizabeth Araujo. The Elders
only think of the animals and the trees, the air and the water, the
children and the grandchildren. To reveal the words of spirit, to
bring the message of universal respect.
Thus they have come to share that message with every tribe, every
nation. Now, at this time of the ending of the Fourth Sun, the
of the Long Count, and the infinite contamination of our Mother,
Earth. As Elizabeth Araujo translated, the contamination of our
is now so universal, so widespread, complete and deep, "that it has
piled to the top of the atmosphere, the top of the world, and the
bottom of every ocean." The world's rivers, the pulsing veins that
throughout the previous ages, delivered the life-blood of humanity
the Earth, have gone dry. They are dead. The forests have been turned
to desert. The land and the mountains cry, and scream out, in pain,
shedding only dry tears. The voice of spirit, Mother's breath, the
wind, has become hot choking dust.
"Our planet is covered in a veil of sadness ... Take our message to
the entire world ... Those who weep *NOW* will find solutions
tomorrow! All things are written ... Go to the center."
Coming together is our only solution. As Don Alejandro repeated again
and again, "I am Maya. My part is to do the Maya part. I can only DO
Maya. You can only do YOUR culture. Your part is of YOUR culture. You
will only DO your part." The Maya are Maya, the Dineh are Dineh, and
the Maori are Maori.

Rosa Maria Cabrera, and the Elders are sharing ceremonies with all
people. They are sharing the Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor.
Roas Maria said, "The People of the Center will unite the People of
the Eagle, of the North, with the People of the Condor, the South."
This message, as all the messages the Elders are sharing, means
different things to different peoples. For consumer civilization it
means that the intellectual insights of science and industry, in
abstraction from nature, can now be combined with the
true-knowing- heart of divine nature, of a life in harmony with the
living. The global spirit of the aboriginal peoples united with the
technological peoples will now become ten times greater, the
prophecized golden age of the Fifth Sun.
The Prophecy equally tells of this time, five hundred years AFTER the
beginning of the genocide, when the native peoples of North America
can rejoin in diversity and respect, with the native peoples of South
America. [Hands connected through the People of the Middle, of
The message of the 'Ending' of the current Long Count, of the Year
2012 (actually 2011 as Wakatel Utiw relates) is actually a message of
our individual and global rebirths. "An honoring of diversity, a
celebration of one-ness, happening NOW! [A dance already begun.]
Together we must acknowledge the global horror, sing out the global
forgiveness, share in the global healing. "We must all scream
