Click to Enlarge     Unlike the Roman Calendar that we use, the Mayan Calendar is not just a system to mark the passage of time. For the Mayans, everything that exists is an aspect of consciousness, so their calendar describes the evolution of consciousness through time. The Calendar tells us that we are here for a reason, not just for a time. Time is not equated with achievement or acquisition, but with Spirit. This is a prophetic calendar that invites us to understand the plan for the evolution of the universe. This plan includes the transformation of humans into enlightened beings. According to the Ancient Mayans, what matters for the future is that human beings choose a path towards Enlightenment. Everyone is an aspect of the Divine coming into existence. Time is inspiration.

    Urban myths say that The Mayan Calendar foretells the end of the world in 2012, but true scholars know it actually predicts the start of a new era--the golden age of enlightenment.

    This Mayan Mask tells that same story.

    The Mask reveals the story of the whole human race illustrated by the lifetime of one person. Closed the Mask shows us the godhead, Spirit. Open it reveals the evolution towards consciousness in the life of one individual. The innermost mask depicts the child; the middle mask is the adult; the outer mask, Spirit. We exist in Spirit until the moment we take birth. At that moment the Mask opens and reveals the journey that is about to begin--the journey of the human soul through the earthly vale of soulmaking. As we move through ever deepening levels of consciousness, the Mask slowly closes again, ending our human life, ultimately bringing us back to Spirit.

    2012 is only 8 years away. To meet that day fully, we all need to complete our own evolution. To do that we need to slow down and take time to connect with Spirit. Chocolate helps in this journey. Its Theobromine and Anandamide relax the muscles, induce feelings of peace and bliss– allowing you the space and time to grow. As you eat this chocolate your Mask will slowly disappear--only its essence will be left. Essence is Spirit.
