History and Celestial Time
By Walter Cruttenden
Most ancient cultures believed consciousness and history were not
linear but cyclical, meaning they would rise and fall over long periods
of time. New evidence suggests the ancient cyclical view could be true.
Understanding the cycle might provide insight into where society is
headed and why consciousness may be expanding at an exponential rate. 




The Age of Uncertainty
By Daniel Pinchbeck
Reality is becoming more improvisational and up-tempo. The ideas of
Jose Arguelles, Terence McKenna and others about time going through
ever-faster fractal spirals of historical pantomime seem increasingly on
the mark. 




Unraveling Some Strands: Seeking the Origin of the Prophecy of the Eagle and Condor
By Robert Tindall
The prophecy of the Eagle and Condor, which is common to several traditional indigenous cultures of North, Central, and South America, points to a time when humans face the evolutionary choice of moving into symbiotic presence within the more-than-human world or destroying the planet. 




The Cosmic Hour: The End of the 5th Sun and the Beginning of Everything
By Jill Ettinger and Baza Novic
We are 26,000 light years from the galactic center. Now, under the galactic starlight of 24,000 years ago, we all have the opportunity to do a clearing of thoughts, memories, words, actions, processes and energies that no longer serve us, humanity or the planet.




Awakening Our Indigenous Mind: Hopi Prophecy on the Coming Great Purification
By Robert Tindall
During this period of geological upheaval and societal discord, anything that draws the heart away from unity will be consumed, and there will be a moment of opportunity in each individual's life when the passage will open to go from two-hearted to one-hearted, or vice-versa. Once the bridge is traversed, however, there is no return.




Ecstasy and the Eschaton
By Shunyamurti 

Many people still want to waste time arguing over how serious a crisis is this really, or whether any leader can be trusted to guide us through the transition, or if renunciation of egoic jouissance is a necessary part of a redemptive path, or whether grace will simply descend upon us all one day. Thankfully, there is no more time for such barren debates.




2012 and the Annoying Persistence of Time
By Richard Smoley

Apocalyptic writings – those purporting to reveal the secrets of the end of time – got their start in Judea in the second century B.C. Since then, predictions of the end of time have become as consistent and reliable as the calendar.



2013: Or, What To Do When The Apocalypse Doesn't Arrive

By Gary Lachman
There are two stereotypical responses to the crisis points in civilization. One is the desire to return to some previous golden age; the other is the urge to leap into a dazzling future. The 2012 scenario seems to partake of both camps. Is there more to it than escapism? 



Glory in the Highest (Part Two)

By Rob Brezsny 
I'm arguing against the grain, compiling evidence that the cynics' hypothesis is a delusion. I'm insisting that we are not pitiable actors in the most hellish chapter in history. I'm even inclined to entertain the possibility that the reverse is true: We may be living in the best of times. Part Two of a three-part series.



The Age of Uncertainty

Reality is becoming more improvisational and up-tempo. The ideas of Jose Arguelles, Terence McKenna and others about time going through ever-faster fractal spirals of historical pantomime seem increasingly on the mark. 



The Gulf Oil Spill as the Unfolding of Prophecy

By Daniel Pinchbeck
As someone who has written extensively on indigenous prophecies relating to this time, it is hard to escape the uneasy presentiment that the massive, ceaseless, devastating cascade of more than 100,000 barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico each day – apparently still mixed with the far more toxic dispersant Corexit that British Petroleum continues to inject, despite EPA objections – is anything but the inception of a new phase in the foretold unfolding of events that may terminate most life on earth, potentially leading to the rapid extinction of the human species.




The Maya of Eternal Time
By Geoff Stray 
Drunvalo Melchizedek's new video, The Maya of Eternal Time, claims to reveal new information about Mayan prophecies. But the video and his book are riddled with inaccuracies and seeming exaggerations.
