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 fourth in a series, written by Janneke Koole, on the opening of the gates to the human world. In Part 4, we look at the Southwest and Northwest directions related to this prophecy.
SOUTHWEST – THE BLUE HORSE
This is the place of the dream, space and distance, and our process of experience. It is where we come to heal and restore ourselves back to the before. What we dream, becomes our future. For those who know how, dreaming extends all the way out into life on other planets. When a people no longer dream, they lose their will and so can be controlled to do the will of another.
The appalling levels of mediocrity and complacency in our society is fodder for the dark horse. It breeds despair and hopelessness and this leaves the door wide open for being gullible to false hopes. When the people surrender their freedom, the government takes over and begins to interfere inside even the most private and sacred spaces.
What can we do to make a difference? Stay awake, aware, and alert – even in your sleeping dream-time. Speak for the sanctity of home, hearth and heart. Promote the rights of the people to pursue their dream. Educate those in your circle of influence to pay attention to the decisions being made in your local community. And be willing to heal one another – fight for those alternative treatments that have the ability to cure without abandoning the gifts and technology of the traditional medical professionals. Explore Life in all aspects!
NORTHWEST – THE GREY HORSE
This is the place of rules and laws and so the home of government and politics. Perhaps one of the most striking contrasts are held in this direction. Consider Sacred Law, the honoring of the Children’s Fire, and the Cycles of Law as they are protected within the time-honored structures of the Council and Circle of Law. Now consider our corruption of our governmental process and the control by the wealthy and elite few bent on the creation of a new world order (not in the light). Consider also how principles, values, morals and ethics have drifted away from Sacred Law. And, before we dip into despair, consider also the quickly expanding numbers of people who have validated that their karma book is closed and their dharma book is open.
What can we do to make a difference? Study, participate, and implement the Council of Law, beginning in the lowest levels of local government. Practice neutral perception and clear communication. Create a productive, procreative lifestyle in dharma. Study Sacred Law – probe, examine, question boldly until you can discern what is sacred and how you can make a difference to promote the Light.
