I would like to open a discussion regarding the concept of an Adept and its required preparation in an esoteric school settings like the Rosicrucian orders, not only AMORC but other Rosicrucian schools or orders as well.
Do you know way? Because we are used to accept the news as they are, without checking things out by ourselves. For instance, anyone had spent some time looking at the Mayan calendar and the way it was done? Have you noticed that the Mayan used the base 20 for their maths, instead of base 10 for maths and base 60 for the time as we do? That’s the initial hint for the differences between our system and theirs. Any time conversions need to take that fact into consideration.
Also we need to consider that our own calendar was subjected to many changes over the centuries. Which version of our calendar should be used for the comparison? Actually, what day is TODAY?
But to compare we need a point in common. To sync both calendars we need some event that is known in both cultures and their dates. That’s the starting point. The problem is that the creators of the Mayan calendar were gone well before the Spanish Conquistadores arrived in Central America. Actually the main Maya sacred cities of Tikal and others were abandoned in the 12th century living no trace behind. What the Conquistadores found were entire complexes buried under the rubble and covered by heavy vegetation.
Then we found the Mayan calendar centuries after it has been lost for the Mayas and for our civilization. Until today the Mayan glyphs are still a mystery for most scholars and they are not entirely understood. When considering things related to space and time, we need to take into account the way people think about such things. There are cultures in this planet that have totally different concepts about the time, different the way we have. So seems that the way of thinking is basically related to the concepts of time and space. Cultures which had hieroglyphic type of writing (based on images, not characters) seems to think non linear in opposition to our linear way of thinking. That seems the way the Mayas were; they thought in non linear ways about the time. So their calendars reflected their way of thinking. Therefore, how to compare their calendar with ours, if our ways of conceiving the calendar and thinking about the time were totally different? That’s the linear way of thinking about it.
Let’s consider the non-linear way of it:
There is something else… What if what is happening is just people’s reaction to changes in deeper/higher levels of consciousness? People are feeling being on the edge of great transformations – but are they physical transformations, or are they the product of a massive work being done by people who are awakening the humankind inner energies and thus rising the entire energy level of the planet?
The popularity of meditation techniques, yoga practices, hermetic practices, ritual magic practices is generating a huge impact into the energy grid of the planet. Every mantra vibrated, every divine name vibrated, every visualization related with the higher planes is increasing the energy of the system and adding it up exponentially.
May be those worried people should take some time off and turn their attention inside looking for the signs of their own connection with the whole Universe. May be, just may be they can find something worth to experience.
