End of the Mayan Calendar-Beginning of the New Era:
Celebration of All Cultures
April, 2009 Update
Two and a half months into co-creating the events for December of 2012 the progress has been going amazingly well. Our Website and Facebook Web Pages:
have been attracting folks from 61 countries and exceed 2,700 folks into participating on one level or another. Websites and Web Groups around the world feature news of the event(s) and it tops Google searches in several categories as many post/publish on their networks.
We are currently working on creating a video short, with the background music created by the group Galactic Butterfly titled Mayan Prayer and several music groups have expressed an interest in creating songs dedicated to the event which we will compile and present in CD & DVD form to help with funding needs and of course furthering awareness of the events.
To date Sister Events are in the works for Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the U.S., Chile, South Africa and the Middle East. Possibly others in Indonesia, Europe, Palestine and Central America.
We have a Blog TV channel in it’s embryonic state and various Blogs posted with a number of networks. Most known Rainbow groups web pages have been posted, with positive acceptance from the overall global network(s). Various Native American Web Pages are also involved and enthusiastic about Indigenous Peoples participation, though we still have much more work to do in getting the word out to all Tribes.
We have started publishing to alternative media sources world wide and will be expanding that greatly in the near future. We invite all folks interested in helping with this to publish the Invitation to your local alternative media sources as well.
We encourage all positive alternative groups, events and projects to become actively involved via Councils on ways which they can plug in, e.g. workshops & exhibits, encouraging volunteers at the 2012 events to participate in their efforts, creating new projects towards world peace and environmental consciousness and anything else they would like to see as parts in the co-creation of this/these historic event/events. As well as formulating events in their regions as lead-ups to the main event in Palenque, Chiapas - Mexico and creating Sister Events in their regions for folks who may not be able to attend events in other regions. There is no minimum, nor maximum, size for such events and all are welcome to be parts in whatever ways they consider feasible for them to do so.
We will be having complete internet media coverage via our own fully equipped buses and motor homes ready to record and transmit from the main event in Palenque and would hope to have others at events globally, with all networked. We plan on having films produced as well.
With the rather phenomenal growth which we have been experiencing we are in need of volunteer focalizers/coordinators for various aspects and needs. This entire effort will remain in the formulative stages as everything evolves so that all which everybody wants to see included can be considered by Councils and those that resonate well will be pursued as events & projects to be included in the general schedule of what will be shared. Consensus is the rule of the thumb when it comes to making decisions on that.
Level 1 Consensus’: If one third of Council members (which are open to all) agree that ideas should be considered workshop/brainstorming groups of those in agreement will be set up to refine the ideas.
Level 2 Consensus’: If half the Council members reach a general consensus groups will be formed to implement whatever folks consider as worth while projects and be able to seek group fund raising, material contributions and volunteers for their co-creation.
Level 3 Consensus’: Those events & projects already grounded in realities that reach two thirds consensus will automatically be included as active parts of the event(s). This of course would include any active projects which already have strong backing from their groups specific and those who support their efforts.
Level 4 Consensus’: Any projects which reach three quarters, or more, consensus agreements will have top billings for announced parts of the event(s). Such projects might include current strong efforts like Greenpeace, Rainbow Gatherings & Projects, The World Peace March(s), Help International/HI with their relief efforts. IPeace and a myriad of other worthy grassroots efforts already making a difference in the world today. Any such efforts are more than welcome to contact us for inclusion and they will all essentially be co-sponsors of the 2012 events (contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to present your active projects and please include your Website or Web Page so that it can be presented in Councils).
We do have ample lead time with 3 years and 8 months until the events proper and in that time we expect to greatly expand the visions and purposes so that all essentials can be included which will lead us into a truly New Era with incredibly strong focuses on World Peace and the preservation & restoration of our Natural Environment so that future generations of all life may know a healthy world upon which to survive and thrive.
Today we see a great awakening of peoples globally who not only are aware of the problems we face, but who are actively pursuing positive alternatives so that solutions can be put in place that will allow us to truly be the change the peoples of the world wish to see for themselves, their children and all future generations. Not just of our human species, but for all life forms upon the Mother Earth which is our common home and heritage.
In two months since its’ inception this effort has become a world wide presence involving the peoples of many cultures. It literally has a presence on every continent, 60& countries and includes people from a great many walks and ways of life. It bridges many former gaps between ethnic groups as they start working in harmony to achieve peace and meet the needs of their peoples.
It should be noted that, of the invitations which have gone out so far, about half those responding have confirmed their intents to actively participate, which is a rather amazing percentage of positive respondents to what has basically been a general mailing of information. And it can be safely assumed that many who have stated they will not be attending will change their minds as we get closer to the dates of the events and they see the essentially overwhelming positive responses of others. Then again many responded under the assumption that there would only be one event in Palenque, Chiapas - Mexico and their situations simply would not permit them to travel there, but Sister Events in many regions closer to them would make them reconsider.
All and all the progress made to date has been rather phenomenal and many aspects are now already in place, with many more in their formulative states of evolving.
All receiving this and other information are requested to forward, post and publish to all appropriate destinations and to sign onto the http://onthepathto2012.mundomio.org Website via the Ning Social & Chat link if you would like to actively participate, as well as the Facebook pages if you wish to simply confirm your intentions of attending the main event, or any Sister Event which may evolve in your more immediate regions.
Once again, volunteers are needed for every aspect and particularly ones with some background in organizing events and projects. Representatives of active projects are more than welcome to network their groups efforts into this historic event.
Walk in Peace
