In previous posts I've been discussing the Mayan calendars and how their cyclical view of time and their extraordinary mastery of astronomy were able to predict that the winter solstice sun's path would intersect with the great rift in the Milky Way galaxy on December 21, 2012. Why is this important?
According to John Major Jenkins, in his audio book Unlocking the Secrets of 2012, the importance of the 12/21/12 date and this galactic event was based on Mayan mythology. I won't go into a full description of all that Jenkins explained concerning their mythology, but I will give you some key ideas.
First, the sun carries a male connotation, as it represents the father of the Hero Twins, important figures in Mayan mythology. The great rift in the Milky Way can represent many things, from the doorway to the underworld, to the portal for shamanic vision quests, to the great birth canal of the universe. It has a feminine connotation. So, when the sun passes through the center of this great rift, it shows the union of the male and the female. Sound familiar? If you've read The Gemini Bond, you'll recognize this theme of the union of male and female, both within an individual, as well as part of the spiritual unification of human and divine necessary to prepare for the union of Twin Souls.
As they say, "As above, so below." From galactic events to the human heart. Cool.
