LESSON # 5 – 150 pages
Welcome to Human Evolution and the Celestial Cycles of Time. This discourse is the Fifth Class of the FIRST LEVEL of teachings being offered by the PHOENIX FIRE LODGE MYSTERY SCHOOL: The Order of the Dove. It focuses on the Lunar, Solar and Galactic Cycles that help to shape mankind’s destiny. The great Mystery schools knew that these cycles influenced not only the ebb and flow of ocean tides, but of all human destiny, thus they set up great stone temples and observatories to study the heavens. Knowledge of these great cycles were once preserved in the innermost sanctuaries of the Keepers of Knowledge, inscribed on the floors of the Holy of Holies within the temples of Atlantis, and honored in all sacred temples and architecture. It was known that these three celestial bodies, the Moon, the Sun, and the slowly moving cycles of the Galaxy, all affected all living things on planet Earth.
Finally there are three additional cycles of a rarer, more transformational galactic nature: the elliptical revolution of a planet called Nibiru that happens once every 3600 years; the brown dwarf Nemesis that is the binary companion to our own Sun, Sol; and the periodic crossing of our solar system across the galactic equator, moving from the southern to the northern hemispheres every 26,000 years. This enormous event completely transforms our solar system, opens and closes great Star Gates within the Universe. and begins an entirely cycle of world consciousness for all living creatures. In this discourse, we will be addressing all of these amazing astronomical events and cycles.
So now let us begin this adventure, taking it one step at a time. Let me urge you to try to preserve the Eagle’s View as you allow allow yourself to discover the unfolding of Time not only as a marker for planetary changes, but also as an opportunity for inner realizations.

The spirit of mankind is eternal, yet our bodies are finite. Thus as long as human beings have lived, we have feared the doom of imminent catastrophe. Such apocalyptic disasters were predicted by the early Christians in 365 AD, by the medieval Saints Malachy and Hildegard von Bingen near the turn of the last millennium, and by the famous Mother Shipton in 1681. As the end of the first millennium arrived during the Dark Ages of Europe, entire populations set aside their farming tools and wandered into the wilderness to fast and pray, and await the magical moment of 1000 Anno Domini, when the evil world would surely come to its richly deserved end. Similar to modern day fundamentalists, they hoped that their ascetic practices would guarantee that they were among those who were “saved.”
In recent times the world has been gripped by the apocalyptic computer craze of Y2K, and by Harold Camping, head of the Evangelical Family Radio Network, who predicted that the Rapture would begin on May 21st 2011, leading to the destruction of the world by fire on October 21st of this year. And of course there are the more advanced computations of an intricate world calendar kept by the Mayans, who have foretold the end of this Age on December 21st, 2012 – a subject we shall come to shortly.
So perhaps we should ask why such dire end-of-the-world predictions carry such weight with otherwise rational people? Because humanity’s genetic and collective memory holds the recollection of other great cycles of destruction from our distant past. Echoes can still be found in the haunting legends of Atlantis, Lemuria, and Hyperborea, even though the physical evidence for their existence has been largely wiped away.
THE GREAT FLOOD AND THE POLAR TWINS
Virtually every civilization in the world has legends of the Great Flood, including Mesopotamia, Wales, Russia, India, China, Scandinavia, America, Sumatra, Peru, and Polynesia. In Moons, Myths and Men author H.S. Bellamy estimates that there are over 500 Flood legends worldwide, and we know that the ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Romans and Chinese recorded the remains of seashells fossils on top of mountains. This has been corroborated by modern day researchers like Adrienne Mayor, who wrote Fossil Legends of the First Americans, supporting ancient theories held by the Greeks that many land masses on Earth have been covered with water several times. Native Americans expressed this same belief in their oral histories, told to early European settlers.
In fact, a well known Hopi legend talks about the axial poles as two twins that hold the Earth in balance. At the end of each World Age these twins are instructed to leave their positions and allow the world to plunge into chaos. After this, a new world is born and a whole new cycle begins. Hopi cosmology tells us that this has happened three separate times: first by Fire, then by ice, and lastly by the Great Flood. Greeks and Etruscans believed that these enormous cycles are marked by both a galactic winter and summer; in winter our planet is cleansed by water or ice; then, in summer we are cleansed by fire.
The Greek historian Herodotus (446 B.C.E.) wrote in his Histories that Egyptian priests recorded that over the course of some 36,000 years there had been no exceptional changes in the Earth’s rotation. “They did say that four times within this period the sun changed his usual position, twice rising where he normally sets, and twice setting where he normally rises!” This means that at one time the Sun rose in the west and set in the east. Plato seconds this in his dialogue The Statesman: “There is a time when God himself guides and helps to roll the world in its course; and there is a time, on the completion of a certain cycle, when he lets go, and the world… turns about and by an inherent necessity revolves in the opposite direction.” He goes on to say, “At periods the universe has its present circular motion, and at other periods it revolves in the reverse direction… Here there necessarily occurs a great destruction of them [the animals], which extends also to the life of man; few survivors of the race are left… Of all the changes which take place in the heavens this reversal is the greatest and most complete.”
Religious literature also seems to make reference to strange celestial activity. In Joshua 10:13, we read the “Sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the people had revenge upon their enemies.” What could possibly make this happen? We will come to this presently. And the Bible is not the only religious text that speaks of such unusual events. The Talmud reports: “Seven days before the deluge, the Holy One changed the primeval order and the sun rose in the west and set in the east.” The Islamic Koran also tells us that there is the Lord “of the two easts and two wests!” a seeming reference to the Earth’s changing orientation to the Sun.
THE CELESTIAL CLOCK OF TIME
Eastern Vedic wisdom claims that the Universe is designed like a gigantic clock that periodically resets itself. Just as we have 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day, and 30 days in one lunar cycle, the Universe is designed in cycle after cycle, giving us many opportunities for growth and experience. The Vedas in fact define four Great Ages or Yugas. They call them the Golden, Silver, Bronze and Iron Ages, all together making up one manvantara. The descending cycle of time that moves from Spirit into matter was seen as the inevitable descent from the great pole of Essence, towards the more material pole of substance. The gradual decline of the Golden Age into the less advanced Iron Age is said to affect not only the nature of physical matter itself, but humanity’s degree of spiritual awakening or slumber. As we spiral slowly downward we transform our own natures from being 3/4rds Spirit and only 1/4 matter (the Golden Age), to becoming 3/4ths matter and only 1/4 Spirit (the Iron Age).
Yet even within the densest of these ages, there are peaks and valleys that represent a heroic return to more spiritually based civilizations. Vedic cosmology tells us that the Iron Age, the darkest of these ages, is marked by ignorance, fear and superstition. The Bronze Age is marked by rationalism, empirical science and materialism. The Silver Age is marked by intuition and spirituality, and the Golden Age is marked by a direct connection with the Source.
Hindu mystics claim that Earth moved into the larger Iron Age around 3102 B.C.E., close to the start of the Mayan Calendar in 3114 B.C.E., and will remain there for thousands of years. Yet this shift did not happen suddenly. There were still many highly evolved civilizations 5,000 years ago, including the first human dynasties in Egypt, and the beginning of the current Mayan cycle. Prior to that, ancient Sumeria, India, Egypt and Greece recorded that the gods lived among us and ruled the ancient world. Yet as we view the spiral of history over the last 5,000 years, it is clear that humanity began this gradual descent into amnesia from this point onward, moving downward to the ignorance of the Dark Ages, or the smaller dark age within the larger Iron Age. Over the past 600 years we have once more begun to climb the great spiral of time, slowly embracing the rationalism of the Renaissance and the Industrial Revolution (the smaller Bronze age within the larger Iron Age), the current Electronic and Space Age (the smaller Silver cycle within the larger Iron Age), and perhaps soon, we will even see a return to the glorious Golden Age even within this more materialist Yuga.
While we can observe that much of this process of ascension and descension is gradual, there are even larger cycles that signal a more abrupt transition. This occurs at the end of each long World Age, wiping clean the cultures of the previous cycles altogether, and starting anew. The end of one cycle leads directly to the beginning of another, a process symbolized by the ancients as a snake biting its tail, known as the Ouroboros. Classical Greco Roman mythology believed that a given cycle of manifestation can emerge fully formed as a new Golden Age, followed directly on the heels of a eschatological cataclysm, or Day of Purification. This view is also shared by other tribal people and has been adapted by many Jews, Christians, Muslims and Hindus, leading to the current religious fever among fundamentalists regarding an inevitable Apocalypse or Doomsday.
This brings us to the prophecies of the Mayan Calendar, our alignment with Galactic Center and the many years following it.
THE MAYAN CALENDAR
The classical Mayan culture, which flourished from about 200 to 900 AD, lived in the tropical forests of Central America. They taught that our current world cycle began in 3114 B.C.E., and that this cycle would complete on February 19, 2013. This is a few months after the famous December 21st, 2012 date, but appears to be a more accurate rendering of this prophecy. The most recent cycle has lasted some 5,125 years and will culminate on this day. Through the intricacies of the now famous Mayan Calendar, they identified a transformation into a new World Age called the Fifth Sun, or Age of Illumination. By their reckoning, our planet has already been through three such enormous incarnations, and we are now at the end of the Fourth Age or Fourth Sun. As each World Age completes its cycle, a huge natural disaster occurs. The First World they claim was destroyed by fire; the Second Age by ice; the Third Age by water. And now, as we approach the end of the Fourth Age, we seem poised on the brink of global change, with an astonishing increase in the solar flares, indicating that the transformation of the Sun may be pivotal element in our next phase of existence.
To underscore these changes, Soviet scientist in recent years have discovered that light itself carries information and can program living matter, including the structure of DNA itself. Experiments carried out in Russia led by Dr. Pjotr Garjajev, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as the Academy of Sciences in New York, has discovered that both light and sound can affect DNA. The research team included bio physicists, molecular biologists, embryologists and even linguistic experts who were able to modulate coherent laser light and radio waves, and add semantics to the carrier wave. In this way they were able to reprogram the DNA in vivo in living organisms using modulated laser light. In one case they programmed a frogs’ eggs to be born as salamanders; in another case a chicken’s eggs were hatched as half duck-half chicken, all using only light frequencies. In addition they found that spoken language can also be modulated to the carrier wave with the same DNA reprogramming effect. This is a stunning scientific discovery! Our own DNA can simply be reprogrammed by human speech, if the words are modulated on the correct carrier frequencies!
The latest Russian research explains how the so called “junk DNA” that Western scientists have discarded, actually gives us access to our clairvoyance, our ability to heal ourselves or others, our ability to influence weather patterns, and even produces magnetized wormholes between entirely different areas in the universe through which information can be transmitted. Our DNA attracts these bits of information and passes them on to our consciousness. And the activating frequency that allows us to access the latent talents and abilities stored in our DNA is 528 hertz, or the frequency of love. Stunningly, this is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA – the genetic blueprint upon which life is based! MI – 528 Hz – relates to crown chakra.
This means that when the Mayans speak about a Fifth Sun, or an evolutionary change in our planet, they may be referring to a particular wavelength of solar frequencies that will be emitted by our Sun, and that will essentially reprogram the DNA of all living beings on Earth. This could take our planet and humankind to the next step in its evolutionary cycle.
Mayan cosmology also teaches that every 25,920 years, we cross the Galactic Equator, coming into alignment with the Dark Rift at the center of our galaxy. This compact, luminous, star-forming center has over one trillion stars, and is believed to be over two trillion miles in diameter. Mayan culture believed that it is here that creation itself began. In their Book of Creation, the Popol Vuh, they refer to this as the Black Road or the Eagle’s Path leading to Xibalba Be. Xibalba Be is the celestial corridor that connects our world to the center of the galaxy. Envisioned concurrently as the womb of the Great Mother, and a giant serpent with its mouth open, this dark band of interstellar clouds reveals an elongated core that Mayans believe connect us with the energies of life, death, heaven and the Underworld.
Periodically, all solar systems come into alignment with this Black Road, creating an enormous gravitational pull upon our solar system. This creates massive solar storms, as our Sun receives new information from the Galactic Center. At an esoteric level it is also possible, that the Sun transmits the combined experience of all the sentient beings from its various planets into the Galactic Center, while simultaneously downloading new programs for the continued evolution of planetary life. This equatorial crossing only happens every 25,920 years, a period that the ancients called the Great Year. And because of the enormous gravitational pressure, the polarities of the entire solar system can change, causing massive pole shifts on the planets. Mayan cosmology tells us this event marks the end of each World Age. During this alignment we become allied with the Heart of the Great Mother;[vii] a mother who, like the Hindu goddess Kali, simultaneously gives birth to mankind, while eating him at the same time. The name Kali means “the Dark One who stops time.” This is the womb from which we all emerge and to which we shall all return.
