Cycles of Time

YugasThat which has been is that which shall be; and that which has been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there a thing of which it may be said, “Behold, this is new?” It has been long ago, in the ages which were before us. There is no memory of the former; neither shall there be any memory of the latter that are to come, among those that shall come after. Ecclesiastes 1:9-11

There is nothing new under the sun – everything that was old will be new again. This is a truth that is not usually recognized. We live in a world where there are continuous cycles within cycles, and what goes around, comes around. This is evident in the familiar cycles of day and night that are within the cycle of seasons that are within the cycle of years. Scientists tell us that everything is composed of energy, and energy works in cycles that continue to repeat their history after having changed it. If we can determine where we are within these cycles we might be able to understand the meaning of the date, December 21, 2012.

There’s been a lot of hype about December 21, 2012 and its indication that the end of the world is at hand. People have believed that the world would end at various times, many even building underground bunkers or congregating at a particular “safe place” after selling all they had. They obviously were misled because the world is still here and will be here for some time to come. However, the date of December 21, 2012 does have some significance regarding an ending – but the ending is also a new beginning.

Throughout time our ancestors have left messages about this ending/beginning in various forms. Some men have made it their life’s work to decipher these messages so they could be understood in light of current events. Many have come to the conclusion that we are on a journey through space in which cycles of time and energy are playing out to bring us back to our beginnings.

In the beginning, according to the way in which we are able to comprehend it, all things were of a spiritual quality. This is portrayed in the Bible as the “Garden of Eden” – the heavenly place of existence where Adam and Eve ate an apple and were driven out. While this is a parable the “Garden of Eden” pretty much describes things as they were in the beginning – an ethereal existence where there was “heaven on earth.” In more logical terms, this beginning of creation was not one of solid matter, but was composed of spirit that eventually evolved into the coarser and more solidified substance that is familiar today. Just as water (which is a symbol for spirit) can be gas as vapor, liquid as water, and solid as ice, the spirit world slowly changed from being composed of spirit to one of more solid substances composed of atoms and molecules that make up our universe. But, in the beginning of creation, everything was closely connected with spirit and had spiritual qualities.

Spirit basically is energy in motion, and the motion of energy takes on a wave form, or spiral kind of motion, causing it to change along a progressive pathway. As it did so, both substance and form became more complex, but it also became more removed from its spiritual beginning. As the human race developed, it also went through many changes, and the knowledge of spirit, that was so immediate in the beginning, became more and more a distant memory. Some of these memories were handed down from generation to generation in the form of myths and legends.

Several of these myths and legends allude to a time when there were drastic changes in the earth causing the destruction of man’s physical presence as well as his accumulated knowledge that had been recorded in many different forms. But a few of these forms survived and recently have been found to contain prophecy of things to come. Some of these forms provide an indication that there are signs in the stars and their relative positions to the earth.

Ancient Oriental astronomers, whose knowledge of the heavens was remarkable for their time, indicated that our solar system, with its sun and planets, revolves around another star. This orbit is such that it is completed only once in approximately every 24,000 of our earth’s years. In addition, they indicated that our sun, with its dual star, revolves around a grand center that emits powerful energetic radiation. As our solar system drifted away from this grand center, the mental capacity of humans decreased causing memories and knowledge of spirit to fade. In other words, humans have gone from a condition of spirit to a condition of matter in which all understanding and memory of their origins has been lost.

But the good news is that, while this cycle has been on a downward turn, it is beginning to shift its position into an upward turn – and this is the message of December 21, 2012. This means that the solar system is slowly advancing back toward the grand center where the radiation is stronger and will eventually bring us back to the place in the heavens where it all began. There is an expectation that this radiation will not only increase the mental and spiritual capacity of mankind, but it will also change our DNA in order to accommodate the increase in energy that the next level of Spirit requires.

These concepts have been explained by different authors in several different books and are summarized here according to the understanding of this author. The main message taken from all of this is that our universe will continue on until its purpose is fulfilled – and its purpose is to provide mankind with an environment in which we can fulfill the desire of Love to become conscious within each of us.
