In today's program, we are going to share with you some thoughts on Mayan cosmo-vision and life-purpose. These topics are discussed in the book titled "The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012" by Mayan Ajq'ij (spiritual guide) Don Carlos Barrios. "At this stage, science will not be able to save us unless we reach a comprehensive awareness. We must return to the Natural Order. We must strive to live a simple, harmonious life that is ecologically conscientious. The wonder of creation is found in the little things. We need to live in harmony and expand our sensibilities. It's very simple: life is about finding the answers inside, awakening the knowledge and powers that lie dormant, controlling our desires, using the strength of our minds for spiritual growth, and projecting ourselves onto the Supreme. The day we start believing this will be the day life smiles upon us." "The Mayan cosmo-vision is an attitude, and approach to life; it is the way in which we learn to live with our perceptions of reality. Everything is integral; nothing is isolated from the sequence of life. Every action is connected to, and forms part of, the cosmic forces, the manifestation of nature and telluric energy. This convergence arises out of a state of universal consciousness. Existence is a continuum, and our insertion into reality is a mystery. It is the power of the Creator and Maker. ‘We are just one thread in this wonder we call existence. We inhabit a reality shaped and modeled after the cosmos, and we vibrate in tune with the movement of the stars. We must always remember that reality is from the eyes inward and illusion is from the eyes outward.’"
