2012 huh, is this the big year, the end is nigh?... The Myans, the Hopi's, the Book of Revelations, Nostradamus, the Soothsayers, the list of prophecies goes on. So much energy focused on one turn of our planet around the sun, what will this turn bring? To me it seems, that of the people who do believe something is going to happen, the vast majority believe that it will be the apocalypse or some global disaster. I personally am not so keen on an apocalypse zombie type environment, I mean where would I get my organic vegetables etc... so I wonder what I can do to help avoid it and ensure my daily carrot juice a while longer.
To help me with this I turned to my master in this regard, Michael K Matel, the artist and visionary behind all of our psychedelic black light murals you see at our parties. He has believed in the Myan & Hopi prophecies since before i met him in 1992, and all the murals he created over the years were made for this time period. The latest mural that was behind the DJ at the 20 year Gathering is the most powerful in this regard. Its interpretation tells of the potential emergence of the fifth sun, entering a new phase of individual, collective, and planetary identity.
Which most likely means no zombies, and fresh carrots.. so yea!! :-)
That feeling we all crave, the connection we feel on the dance floor to our inner self, or to the collective we, the shining eye contact across the room, is the power of the LOVE frequency. By gathering together at a communal dance, with positive thought and intention, we can help bring in the future we want to see, and have lots and lots of fun while we are doing it.
The Gathering family is offering to provide an environment, an opportunity to collectively celebrate our place in, and our connection to the universe, via the medium of a psychedelic dance party. Lets gather and welcome in the fifth sun.
