humans have wanted to know about the future, about what
is going to happen with humanity. We live in a universe
whose real nature is unknowable, and, to a human mind that
has the need to know, it appears unsafe. Our need to know,
to feel safe, may be why there have always been so many
different mythologies and religions around the world, all
with different beliefs and doctrines. It is often not even
important to our mind if something is true or not, we just
have the need to feel safe, to know.
We don't really need prophesies.
We do not really need anyone to make us feel safe (or afraid!)
by telling us what is going to happen to us, because we
have the power to contact all of that knowing through our
connection to the silent knowledge contained in the universe.
I don't believe the prophesies that the humans will destroy
themselves, or that we will destroy the planet. I don't
think we need to be saved by extraterrestrials, either!
Our evolution is unfolding perfectly, according to Life's
First of all, we need
to see that everything is connected. Everything is one living
being, just one manifestation of that force that we call
Life, that we call God. A star thousands of light years
away is connected with every atom of your body by Life,
by God. There is only that one living being and that living
being is made by billions of universes. If you understand
that, you can understand why the Toltecs of ancient Mexico
say that this solar system, the sun and all the planets
around the sun, is one individual. They believed that it
is the sun who controls life in every planet around the
sun. It is all connected. It is connected through the light
that comes from the sun-- there is no separation.
The light from the sun
has all the information about the creation of life on the
planet Earth. That light has billions of different vibrations.
Every vibration can create a different form of life on the
planet. The planet earth has the capacity to react to the
light that comes from the sun and that reaction creates
all the life forms that manifest here. The planet Earth
is a living being with different organs. The atmosphere,
the forests, the oceans, are all organs of that living being.
And all we humans together are one organ of that living
being. And just as your body grows up, gets old, reproduces
and dies, humanity as a living being has the same kind of
The Toltecs teach us that
we are living in a dream and there is nothing really solid
about that dream. We can say that the human body is made
for perception, and the human mind is made to dream. We
each dream our personal dream of "reality," and we all dream
together to create the “dream of the planet." The function
of the human dream is to prepare the new humans by "domesticating"
them and making them part of the human organ, so that our
evolution continues. If we understand that, it is easy to
prophesy what’s going to happen with humanity.
When the dream of the
humans matures to a new level, the sun perceives the change
and the sun changes the quality of the light that affects
the humans, which facilitates the process of the evolution
of the humans. Every time the sun changes the quality of
light we call it a new sun. According to the Toltecs we
have entered the time of the Sixth Sun. That means that
the humans are starting to change again. This change is
in the human mind and in the way we dream. The capacity
of the mind to see the truth, to see what is, is changing
The old dream is resisting,
of course, and the reaction is causing tremendous upheaval
in societies and individuals. The apprentices I work with
often have to face this upheaval in their own minds, the
war between the old dream and the new dream. They discover
the "Parasite" in their minds: the Judge, the Victim, and
their whole belief system from the past, eating their energy
and making them unhappy. They also discover that there is
a real possibility to be happy. The old dream resists. It
sabotages their happiness, because the old dream feels safe
with suffering, feels safe being a victim. The apprentice
needs to find the Spiritual Warrior within to battle the
Parasite, to accept and surrender to not knowing, and make
space for the new dream.
I believe the message
of this new millennium is that there are no limitations
anymore. Anything and everything can happen. As the old
dream breaks down, we can let go of all the old habits of
selfishness, envy, anger, fear, and jealousy. They are not
a part of the new dream of the Sixth Sun. The new dream
is a dream of love-- love without conditions, love without
expectations, love without obligations. The "Heaven on Earth"
that Jesus talked about long ago is this dream, it is a
dream in which you are always happy. It is a dream in which
you are no longer afraid, when you awaken and become the
being of Spirit that you really are. It is beginning with
individuals, and spreading to the entire world. It will
take time, but it is happening.
So we can see that it
is easy to prophesy the future of humanity in the new millennium.
The future continues the transformation of the dream. Of
course there has to be resistance to the change, but that
resistance creates the heat that lights our way to a higher
awareness, until the light changes again, and again.
Imagine what humans will
be doing after a hundred, five hundred, or a thousand more
years of this evolution! In the last 500 years we have evolved
from the darkness of the Inquisition through the Morse Code
to a world of instant communication and community. The Human
Dream has evolved tremendously in those 500 years.
Spiritually, we are becoming
more and more aware that the truth of our being is that
we are Life, we are everything, everywhere, we are God.
This awareness is the direction of the evolution of the
humans. Of course, there is no hurry. We are not in charge,
although we get to play in the light of change if we choose
to. And why not choose to? It is the best dream in town!
Let's dream the new dream,
reflect it to the sun, and let the sun know we are getting
the message-- we are learning to love ourselves and all
of creation without condition. Maybe the sun will smile
