Enjoyed the Book and highly recommend it,
This review is from: Solving the Greatest Mystery of Our time : The Mayan Calendar (Paperback)
I know there's been many who have written quite negative reviews, and I am also quite well acquainted with other authors on the same or related topics centering on 2012 and the Calendar and the Nahautl lore and traditions. Oddly, people have taken positions favoring a particular "author", but my take is the content and the overall "message" of the book. Most who had written previously about the Calendar have used it primarily as a focal point to somehow prove the predictions of a coming Biblical "Doomsday" and the destruction of the Earth and humankind. I found my way to this book via Ian Xel Lundgold's video presentation on the Evolution of Human Consciousness! I found that perspective to be SO refreshing, and, dare I say "ENLIGHTENING"? Yes. I highly recommend this book, if for no other reason than to see an more POSITIVE interpretation of the Calendar. It shifts the whole dynamic and gives a greater comprehension concerning things as they have been, as they are, and as they seem to be unfolding.
I know some readers are also looking for definitive "prophetic" revelations, but I think that is perhaps a misguided endeavor (as we can so readily see by all the doomsdayers running amuck). I really resonate with the idea that the cycles Calleman explains are not "circular", but rather like a "spiral" coming to an ultimate elevating conclusion.

LOL. Oh well. I got mixed on my reviews. My intent was to review Calleman's OTHER book, "The Mayan Calendar and the Transformation of Consciousness" which I enjoyed more than this one since it goes into much more detail. Still this is a good book as well. :-)
