According to Maya spiritual people that I have been in touch with....On or about 12/231/2012, we can expect up to 72 hours of darkness; then the Mayan calendar will start over again keeping track of the next 5,000 years before it starts all over again. This has happened before, it will happen again.

I trust things will evolve in the right direction. I trust the collective wisdom will take us there. It may be an exiting ride though.. for we as human beings need crises to develop this consciousness of us. As a person as a community and as a global social system as well. I try to practice what brother Phil always says: try to be the change I'd like to see. That's difficult enough for me :-)

i really have difficulty when talk about 2012 gets automatically associated with armageddon religious mythologies example being the new movie showing the cataclysmic movie about the tragic end of the world that just came out, when if you looked at the ideals behind the mayan calendar and world view that initiated the ideas behind the prophecy about 2012 its about a change in the worldview and evolution of mankinds understanding of the cosmic forces involved in its changes.

Welcome Brothers,
I have been reflecting for the last few days on how to get this started.....I think I may have found it.
I have recently been having a lot of people coming up to me and asking for the "teaching" on how to survive the coming dark days of 2012. I think that most people are predicting that the "end of days" is approaching and they are scared! They are now reaching out to Natives for the answers. (Imagine that!!!)

My grandfather told me along time ago that every five years or so we will be in fashion. I guess that he was definitely correct. We're in!! LOL!

The reality is we have a responsibility to take these people seriously with a good heart. We must remember to talk of the honor of our families; women, children, men, Elders and ancestors. The honor, respect and caring of our Mother Earth. And the relationship and our connection to all of the relatives that walk, swim, fly and crawl upon our Mother Earth.

Share freely, share without reservation, share with love in you hearts and with honor for the human family.

Thank you so much for coming on board. It will develop slowly but hopefully gain momentum as we progress.

Haven't been in a men's group for a while other than running a youth male warriors circle at work. I have missed just being a part of a group without facilitating it. It is an honor to join with men of like souls.

Dear White Bear,
It's a pleasure and honor to join you and Phil in this lodge.
I look forward to some good laughter and the teachings coming with it :-)
I'll see if I can invite some good brothers from over here.
Warm greetings,
