THE WORLD WILL NOT END IN 2012


By Carlos Barrios

Carlos Barrios was born into a Spanish family on El Altiplano, the highlands of . His home was in Huehue tenango, also the dwelling place of the Maya Mam tribe. With other Maya and other indigenous tradition keepers, the Mam carry part of the old ways on Turtle Island ( North America ).

They are keepers of time, authorities on remarkable calendars that are ancient, elegant and relevant. Mr. Barrios is a historian, an anthropologist and investigator. After studying with traditional elders for 25 years since the age of 19, he has also became a Mayan Ajq'ij, a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide, Eagle Clan.

Years ago, along with his brother, Gerardo, Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars. He studied with many teachers. He says his brother Gerardo interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge.

"Anthropologists visit the temple sites," Mr. Barrios says, "and read the inscriptions and make up stories about the Maya, but they do not read the signs correctly. It's just their imagination... Other people write about prophecy in the name of the Maya. They say that the world will end in December 2012. The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed. The indigenous have the calendars, and know how to accurately interpret it, not others.

The Mayan Calendars comprehension of time, seasons, and cycles has proven itself to be vast and sophisticated. The Maya understand 17 different calendars, some of them charting time accurately over a span of more than ten million years. The calendar that has steadily drawn global attention since 1987 is called the Tzolk'in or Cholq'ij.

Devised ages ago and based on the cycle of the Pleiades, it is still held as sacred. With the indigenous calendars, native people have kept track of important turning points in history.

For example, the day keepers who study the calendars identified an important day in the year One Reed, Ce Acatal, as it was called by the Mayans. That was the day when an important ancestor was prophesied to return, "coming like a butterfly." In the western calendar, the One Reed date correlates to Easter Sunday, April 21, 1519 the day that Hernando Cortez and his fleet of 11 Spanish galleons arrived from the East at what is today called Vera Cruz, .

When the Spanish ships came toward shore, native people were waiting and watching to see how it would go. The billowing sails of the ships did indeed remind the scouts of butterflies skimming the ocean surface. In this manner was a new era initiated, an era they had anticipated through their calendars. The Maya termed the new era the Nine Bolomtikus, or nine Hells of 52 years each. As the nine cycles unfolded, land and freedom were taken from the native people. Disease and disrespect dominated.

What began with the arrival of Cortez, lasted until August 16, 1987 - a date many people recall as Harmonic Convergence. Millions of people took advantage of that date to make ceremony in sacred sites, praying for a smooth transition to a new era, the World of the Fifth Sun."

From that 1987 date until now, Mr. Barrios says, "We have been in a time when the right arm of the materialistic world is disappearing, slowly but inexorably. We are at the cusp of the era when peace begins, and people live in harmony with Mother Earth. We are no longer in the World of the Fourth Sun, but we are not yet in the World of the Fifth Sun. This is the time in-between, the time of transition. As we pass through transition there is a colossal, global convergence of environmental destruction, social chaos, war, and ongoing Earth changes."

All this, Mr .Barrios says, was foreseen via the simple, spiral mathematics of the Mayan calendars. "It will change," Mr. Barrios observes. "Everything will change." He said Mayan day keepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth, the start of the World of the Fifth Sun. "It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic equator, and the earth aligning itself with the center of the galaxy.

At sunrise on December 21, 2012 for the first time in 26,000 years, the Sun rises to conjunct the intersection of the Milky Way and the plane of the ecliptic. This cosmic cross is considered to be an embodiment of the Sacred Tree, The Tree of Life, a tree remembered in all the world's spiritual traditions."

Some observers say this alignment with the heart of the galaxy in 2012 will open a channel for cosmic energy to flow through the earth, cleansing it and all that dwells upon it, raising all to a higher level of vibration.

This process has already begun, Mr. Barrios suggested. "Change is accelerating now, and it will continue to accelerate." If the people of the earth can get to this 2012 date in good shape, without having destroyed too much of the Earth, Mr. Barrios said, "We will rise to a new, higher level. But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way."

A Picture of the Road Ahead:

From his understanding of the Mayan tradition and the calendars, Mr. Barrios offered a picture of where we are at and what may lie on the road ahead. The date specified in the calendar Winter Solstice in the year 2012 does not mark the end of the world. Many outside people writing about the Mayan calendar sensationalize this date, but they do not know. The ones who know are the indigenous elders who are entrusted with keeping the tradition.

"Humanity will continue," he contends, "but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human. We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies.

All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions, are converging now. There is no time for games. The spiritual ideal of this era is action. Many powerful souls have reincarnated in this era, with a lot of power. This is true on both sides, the light and the dark.

A Call for Fusion:

As he met with audiences in Santa Fe, Mr. Barrios told a story about the most recent Mayan New Year ceremonies in . He said that one respected elder, who lives all year in a solitary mountain cave, journeyed to Chichicastenango to speak with the people at the ceremony. The elder delivered a simple, direct message. He called for human beings to come together in support of life and light. Right now each person and group is going his or her own way. The elder of the mountains said there is hope if the people of the light can come together and unite in some way.

Reflecting on this, Mr. Barrios explained: "We live in a world of polarity: day and night, man and woman, positive and negative. Light and darkness need each other. They are a balance. Just now the dark side is very strong, and very clear about what they want. They have their vision and their priorities clearly held, and also their hierarchy. They are working in many ways so that we will be unable to connect with the spiral Fifth World in 2012.

On the light side everyone thinks they are the most important, that their own understandings, or their group's understandings, are the key. There's a diversity of cultures and opinions, so there is competition, diffusion, and no single focus."

As Mr. Barrios sees it, "The dark side works to block fusion through denial and materialism. It also works to destroy those who are working with the light to get the Earth to a higher level. They like the energy of the old, declining Fourth World , the materialism. They do not want it to change. They do not want fusion. They want to stay at this level, and are afraid of the next level. The dark power of the declining Fourth World cannot be destroyed or overpowered.

It's too strong and clear for that, and that is the wrong strategy. The dark can only be transformed when confronted with simplicity and open-heartedness. This is what leads to fusion, a key concept for the World of the Fifth Sun."

Mr. Barrios said the emerging era of the Fifth Sun will call attention to a
much-overlooked element. Whereas the four traditional elements of earth, air, fire and water have dominated various epochs in the past, there will be a fifth element to reckon with in the time of the Fifth Sun: ether. The dictionary defines ether as the rarefied element of the Heavens. Ether is a medium. It permeates all space and transmits waves of energy in a wide range of frequencies, from cell phones to human auras.

What is "ethereal" is related to the regions beyond earth: the Heavens. Ether, the element of the Fifth Sun, is celestial and lacking in material substance, but is no less real than wood, stone or flesh. "Within the context of ether there can be a fusion of the polarities," Mr .Barrios said. "No more darkness or light in the people, but an uplifted fusion.

But right now the realm of darkness is not interested in this. They are
organized to block it. They seek to unbalance the Earth and its environment so we will be unready for the alignment in 2012. We need to work together for peace, and balance with the other side. We need to take care of the Earth that feeds and shelters us. We need to put our entire mind and heart into pursuing unity and fusion now, to confront the other side and preserve life, to be ready for this Moment in History."

Mr. Barrios told his audiences in Santa Fe that we are at a critical moment of world history. "We are disturbed," he said. "We can't play anymore. Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action. Everyone is needed. You are not here for no reason. Everyone who is here now has an important purpose. This is a hard, but special time. We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history."

Mr. Barrios offered a number of suggestions to help people walk in balance
through the years ahead. "The prophesied changes are going to happen," he said "but our attitude and actions determine how harsh or mild they are. We need to act, to make changes, and to elect people to represent us who understand and who will take political action to respect the earth. Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action. It's very important to be clear about who you are, and also about your relation to the Earth.

Develop yourself according to your own tradition and the call of your heart. But remember to respect differences, and strive for unity. Eat wisely. A lot of food is corrupt in either subtle or gross ways. Pay attention to what you are taking into your body. Learn to preserve food, and to conserve energy. Learn some good breathing techniques, so you have the mastery of your breath. Be clear. Follow a tradition with great roots. It is not important what tradition, your heart will tell you, but it must have great roots. We live in a world of energy. An important task at this time is to learn to sense or see the energy of everyone and everything: people, plants, animals.

This becomes increasingly important as we draw close to the World of the Fifth Sun, for it is associated with the element ether - the realm where energy lives and weaves. Go to the sacred places of the earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter. We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work. One simple but effective prayer technique is to light a white or baby-blue colored candle. Think a moment in peace. Speak your intention to the flame and send the light of it on to the leaders who have the power to make war or peace. We Have Work To Do."

According to Mr. Barrios this is a crucially important moment for humanity, and for earth. Each person is important. If you have incarnated into this era, you have spiritual work to do balancing the planet. He said the elders have opened the doors so that other races can come to the Mayan world to receive the tradition. The Maya have long appreciated and respected that there are other colors, other races, and other spiritual systems.

"They know," he said, "that the destiny of the Mayan world is related to the
destiny of the whole world. The greatest wisdom is in simplicity," ... . "Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It's not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It's encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way."

Another Mayan Elder speaks:



Every 5200 years we come to this point when the Earth becomes dark for a period of 60 to 70 hours… Many people take advantage of the Mayan calendar scaring our people with threatening words where it says that the world will be ending. So in this sense that I tell you to all my brothers do not be afraid. The sun will go dark, the planet Earth will not see the sun but we should understand it is like the New Year. The old year ended December 31st… tomorrow January 1st. Happy New Year! That is what we should do when the day comes.

We do not have a date to say that it is going to be the 12th of December.. it could be 2015, 2020 or further on. We are lost to the correct date.

as one era ends, anew one will take it's place, so many people think the world will end.
I say will the sun rise, do not the stars shine? if the stars are not seen by clouds, are they still there? then is the way of 2012 one will end and a new one will be, just as a head of state is replaced, one ends, anew one starts.
Yes this is the time of change.
An other way to put it,look at the butterfly it was not a butterfly at first, it too had an end, at it's beginning.

the world was supposed to end multiple times already... so wtf happened?
where's the evidence that it'll end this time?

well people are now saying that it's supposed to be a spritual enlightenment now...i guess there's no way to prove that to any pair of objective eyes

I like Dr. Barrios's message. Fits in with my viewpoint. Although I'm not sold on earth changes "NOT" happening.

Thanks for the post.

Did you even read the post, or are you just parroting the many others who say the same thing on ATS every single day?

Its good to see the myans themselves supporting the 2012 theories.

As a "2012er" I totally agree with this guy. Ive been researching it for a couple of years now.

What I dont get it how come some people who seem to spend no time investigating it somehow got this funny idea about it being the total end of the world forever. I suppose it all depends on what you mean by "end". Its the end of the world as we know it.
It is the end of the fourth world.

Maybe we should pander to the ignorent and start calling it the "end of the fourth world" rather than shortening it to "end of the world" or the "new begining" rather than the "end times"

I agree dude its sad that so many ignore what is the greatest significant date in their lifetime due to an ignorance on something so profoundly simple. Its not the end of the world its a shift in consciousness, an end to the way we have been living up until now.

For those of the sheeples who dont like to read too much, I'll copy and paste the main point of the OP here for you.

"All this, Mr .Barrios says, was foreseen via the simple, spiral mathematics of the Mayan calendars. "It will change," Mr. Barrios observes. "Everything will change." He said Mayan day keepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth, the start of the World of the Fifth Sun. "It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic
equator, and the earth aligning itself with the center of the galaxy.

At sunrise on December 21, 2012 for the first time in 26,000 years, the Sun rises to conjunct the intersection of the Milky Way and the plane of the
ecliptic. This cosmic cross is considered to be an embodiment of the Sacred Tree, The Tree of Life, a tree remembered in all the world's spiritual traditions."

Some observers say this alignment with the heart of the galaxy in 2012 will open a channel for cosmic energy to flow through the earth, cleansing it and all that dwells upon it, raising all to a higher level of vibration. "

So I read the entire thread. But I am not understanding what it said.... So we will reach a time of change...not the end of the world, but a time of transformation? Does that mean we're all going to grow wings and fly around like butterflies? Sounds to me like the end of the world is a more possible scenario. But even that scenario is retarded. So what changes will we see? A higher level of consciousness? Are we all going to get 10 times smarter on december 21, 2012, at 11:11am? That's more retarded than both ideas listed above. So can anyone explain to me, what it means? Whats going to be different on dec 21 2012, that is different than dec 20th, 2012? Other than a sigh of relief because all the stress around this day will be over....

Nothing will happen in 2012, nothing that doesn't happen in any other year, anyway. There'll be earthquakes, and floods, and wars, and people will claim it all points to 2012 being 'the end'. Then it'll be 2013...and they can start looking for the next end of the world prophecy.

Thank you for sharing that!
I enjoyed the read very much - so I have actually ordered Carlos Barrios book :-D
I would be very gratefull, if you have any clues where to gain more insight into this wisdom

Openheartedness and simplicity - I guess we have to start practicing that, big time, globally
Hey - I can start with myself, be saying - I totally love you people here on ATS :-D

The emphasis on that we should choose a practise from our own tradition, that have great roots is a challenge.
Born into a protestantic-lutheranian christian country, based and reformed on catholic dogmatics - based on a convention where the pope choose which dogmaes suited the purpose of controlling the masses the best.... hmmmm to me not the greatest roots.
That said, Im not looking for a religious debate, I have a deep respect for The Christ, and knows in my heart that there is something for-ever real to find here.... Just talking about whats been done to cover it all up since...

I like the emphasis on community too, we might not be so importent as individuals as we thinks, only together we are able to make the leap to the next level....
In my humble opinion

The world is not going to end in 2012

And, thank God, on New Year's Eve 2012/13 --- ALL these type threads and posts will go bye-bye

and people will have to find something to do for the rest of their lives

For some, it will be a real challenge

I think as 2012 gets closer, there will be less and less people believing in it. There are no signs right now that the world will end anytime soon. Humanity is a young species and we have many more centuries left on this earth. The end is not anytime soon, and old civilizations and ancient calenders could not have possibly been able to predict it with any accuracy. Their calendar had to end sometime. Just like the one we use, every 365 days. So basically, if a noob was looking at our calendar, they'd think our world was ending on dec 31.....ever year. It's no different for ancient civilizations and us. It's a communication error. The ancients were as clueless about this planet as we are today. So there is nothing to worry about, lets enjoy life, and forget about ancient prophecies ( that includes the bible) because none of it is true, we make our own fate.

Ok, but only after you give me credible evidence that I have no soul.

Then we can really debate two ideas neither one of us can prove.

Loony, would be not entertaining such ideas and blocking them out as if you actually know for certain.

I'm not running around here screaming at people to believe my beliefs. I am simply entertaining the information from all angles. Is there something wrong with doing such a thing?

I did miss that. Seems, the author didn't want to highlight it all that much. I can't say I blame them, when you start talking doom and gloom to people, it can anger them.
