Note: December 21, 2012 was the final day in one of the Long Counts in the Mayan Calendar. There were rumors that the end of that long count would also be the “end of the world”. Within the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, this date represents the opportunity to enter a new world: the human world. This is the third in a series, written by Janneke Koole, on the opening of the gates to the human world. In Part 3, we look at the Southeast and South directions in the prophecy.
SOUTHEAST – THE ORANGE HORSE
The Orange Horse has always held the belief systems of the people concerning peace and all academic pursuits. We now know that external peace is only possible when we have internal peace, when inside ourselves we stop the war between our inner man/woman, when silence the inner dialogue enough to be receptive to truth.
The dark force feeds on all forms of ignorance. And when the people are fed only partial truths, when schools promote mediocrity and squelch free-thinking and true problem-solving, when our leaders and the media models spin-doctoring and double-speaks, then the children are in danger! And the children are the next generation, the future care-takers of Grandmother Earth and her Children.
What can we do to make a difference? Clear our wombs of all forms of pity and dedicate ourselves to develop benevolent compassion. Prepare powerful space of learning and growing for the children. Develop wombs that will welcome new spirits, dharma spirits. Train boys to become men who will seed their dreams of peace with freedom! Learn all about the teachings of the She Thoughts and the Quodoushka and anything that inspires you to express your individuality, your way with power and in beauty.
SOUTH – THE RED HORSE
This is the place of the family, Earth Mother, and all the Earth Changes carried by the Red Horse. Grandmother Earth is and will always balance and re-balance herself. She is not in danger – we are! And yes, the earth is changing and we need to find new forms that promote deeper understanding of the Ecological Balance Laws. Study Nature – She knows what She is doing!!
What can we do to make a difference? We can do ceremony – especially at the times Grandmother Earth’s natural cycles (the seasons) and the Sister Moon (new moon and full moon). Make sure your homes are domed. Examine your lifestyle and restore greater value in your everyday environment. Encourage and support the Rites of Passage and honor all parents in their daily challenge to create family. Practice honesty and integrity in all your actions.
