Don Alejandro is charged as the primary keeper of the teachings, visions and prophecies of the Mayan people. He is head of the National Mayan Council of Elders of Guatemala, Day Keeper of the Mayan Calendar, a 13th generation Quiche Mayan High Priest and a Grand Elder of the Continental Council of Elders and Spiritual Guides of the Americas. He is also an international lecturer on Mayan Culture.
Don Alejandro gives us this timely message: a call to action, a call to come together and be as one. Don Alejandro Hill be performing a Sacred Maya FIRE Ceremony in Guatemala, and be joining the thousands of others around the planet during the Break through Celebration.
Brothers and Sisters of all colors, holding hands around the planet on May 22nd 2007, let us reflect on this, let us meditate in our own way, in our own language, according to our own culture or religion, because we have only one Sun to shine upon us equally, one air that we breath and gives us life, one water that we drink and becomes blood in our veins and all live on Mother Earth. She feeds us, she holds us Brothers and Sisters of all colors, together united in meditation to make conscience to the men in power, governors, politicians, business people: no more war, no more contaminating bombs, no more death. Together we can make a difference.
Dear Brothers Joseph and Carl (Giove and Calleman):
In the name of the Heart of the Heavens and the Heart of the Earth, greetings to you. In the name of the Maya National Council of Elders, Spiritual Guides of Guatemala, we address the following to you for your great magnetic connections at the global level:
The Spirit of the Maya Nation and the Spirit of Mother Earth make us look for ties of friendship with all peoples of the world. The Maya Prophecy tells us We will meet for we are one like the fingers of the hand. We all are children of the Earth, we are flowers of the garden of our Creator coming in different colors, in different shapes, in different sizes, with different aromas; speaking different languages, and each one worshiping and meditating in their own way to the same Creator who has different names according to their own culture.
We hope this communiqué reaches all institutions, in private sectors as well as governmental ones; landowners, scientists, and all people in general. Brothers and sisters, there has been over 500 years of extermination in the face of the earth, extermination of humans, extermination of our brother animals and ancient trees, every day at a faster speed. The elders from the National Council of Elders and Spiritual Guides of Guatemala are keepers of mystical and millenary knowledge. Like the birds, tirelessly in their flight, they live to see the prophecies fulfilled. We want to make all people and governments in the world conscientious, and have them analyze and reflect at the situation of the planet in the present time. Let us start by remembering that the Americas were a paradise 500 years ago. Virgin forests, cities of beautiful animals, cities to an innumerable variety of colorful birds, flying in freedom; they provided food for everyone. The waters were abundant and pure; and the people, they lived in their own traditions, guarding their cultures and conserving the beauty of Mother Earth. Our ancestors lived to be over 100 years old, free from contagion and illnesses. They were respectful and obedient to the laws of our Creator.
Let us talk now about our present times. We enjoy new advances in technology, inventions that make everyday life easier for us, we all use them, but the negative side is that we are finishing up our forests, and contributing to the contamination of the planet, the rivers are drying out, the waters are being contaminated. Our crops are affected by plagues as well as plagues killing our animals. We are threatened by contagious illnesses, incurable illnesses unknown in the past. Very harmful are the use of chemicals, the insecticides, transgenic seeds, etc. And most of all, these days, the nuclear testing: nuclear bombs and a great deal of war weapons, and the war in itself sterilizing or killing the planet Earth and affecting all living beings. Many people are homeless, children begging in the streets, others are involved in prostitution. Predators are on the rise. Dead people appearing daily in the streets, kidnappings, extortion, shootings in the schools, parents killing children, children killing children, parents raping their own kids. All this is a direct result of the contamination. There is no respect; no respect for life. The authorities sell themselves. The justice can be bought or sold.
Now lets speak about the future. We, the traditional Mayan elders, and all indigenous peoples in the world, meditate on the future. We don't think only for today, the present, we think for tomorrow, for our children, grand children and future generations. We see a dark shadow approaching, a shadow that will cause a lot of harm. It is the great contamination. All this is due to man's creation. We are digging our own graves. Wars are being transported to other countries; they reason in their speeches it is on behalf of freedom, but the result is more slavery. They speak that it will bring new development, but the result is more hunger for the underdeveloped countries. If we continue like this, the time will come when there are no more soldiers to form battalions. The Maya National Council of Elders of Guatemala ask all nations of the world their governors and the governed ones to put a stop to the contamination; and to the big and small enterprises, to find alternatives. We don't want any more wars, no more death, no more nuclear testing, no more chemicals, because the warming up of the planet is unbearable to Mother Earth. If we don't change, sooner or later, she will strike back with millions of lives lost.
Our Creator created us here over the face of the earth to worship him, to love and respect each other. We all are equal, we are flowers of the earth, in different sizes, of different colors, with different songs, with different smell, but all looking at our Creator, honoring him with different dances, different music, different ceremonies. We all plead to him,
we are his children, he is the creator of all that exist, all that we see and all which is beyond our senses. He has given us our life with an intelligence to do well. Brothers and Sisters of all colors, holding hands around the planet on May 22nd, 2007, let us reflect on this, let us meditate in our own way, in our own language, according to our own culture or religion, because we have only one Sun to shine upon us equally, one air that we breath and gives us life, one water that we drink and becomes blood in our veins and all live on Mother Earth. She feeds us, she holds us. Brothers and Sisters of all colors, together united in meditation to make conscience to the men in power, governors, politicians, business people: no more war, no more contaminating bombs, no more death. Together we can make a difference.
May 22nd, 2007 is 5 Ajpu, the Day of Grand Father Sun, he shines upon all of us equally, he doesn't know discrimination, he doesn't get lost on his path, he doesn't get ahead or behind of himself. He gives us warmth, he gives us life. One Sun, one Air, one Water, One Mother Earth. May 22nd, 2007 day of Grand Father Sun, Grand Mother Moon.
The Maya Prophecy says: "Arise, all arise, not one nor two groups be left behind, together we will see once again the place from where we have come from."

The Breakthrough Celebration, May 15-29, 2007
A Cascade of Peace Events
by Carl Johan Calleman
We are now rapidly approaching the exact midpoint of the Fifth day of the Galactic Underworld (May 22, 2007 in the Gregorian Calendar), a point in time of a potential profound shift and breakthrough into peace and balance brought by the incoming energy of this Fifth day. As is obvious from the web site www.commonpassion.org the Breakthrough Celebration around this significant shift point will occur over an extended period of time, May 15-29, 2007, to allow the aspirations for peace that are now surfacing in a new way to be expressed for more than a single day. There are also practical considerations such as weekends in the modern calendars of the world that must be taken into account to allow for maximal participation. The peak of the peace events will at any rate take place during the days May 19-22. The 19th may be a day of preparation and creation of intentions, followed by May 20 (the World Peace Day), May 21 (the Jerusalem Hug) and May 22 (the World Tree or Medicine Wheel Day). This last day is 5 Ahau (Ajpu) in the Mayan calendar and fire ceremonies will be performed among the Maya to bring peoples of the four directions together in peace.
This cascade of events may be used as a guideline by everyone who wants to focus in concord with the worldwide Breakthrough Celebration. Yet, the idea is not to have a rigid organization of this cascade, but to support creativity everywhere. Having said that it is recommended that those inclined to participate try to gain the relevant information as soon as possible rather than to wait until the last moment to find out what is happening. The purpose of this Breakthrough Celebration is both an end in itself and an exploration of new territory. What many will want to explore is the possibility of manifesting a peaceful external reality by the creation of an inner peaceful state. The scale of these events will, despite many qualifying factors, allow us to test the Hundredth Monkey hypothesis that a high enough number of people focusing on, or actually being, peace may have an effect on the future of the planet. I feel it deserves to be pointed out in this context that the focus of this Breakthrough Celebration is not anti-war, but being in peace, if nothing else because the anti-war intention takes the existence of war for granted. It is by being peace and creating peace in ourselves through any of the many spiritual practices to be used that we can help introduce peace in the collective consciousness of humanity. Thanks to the painstaking work of Joseph Giove, who has co-ordinated much of these efforts, we also have some hopes to find some objective verification of the effects that these meditations may have on the external reality.
I feel by far most of the participants in this cascade of events will take part because they want to contribute to a peaceful future for the planet and turn things in the right direction. Yet, it is not an accident that they are coming together at this very time. These events happen against the energetic background of the divine plan as this may be understood from the Mayan calendar. For the serious student of the different Underworlds of evolution in this calendar system it is obvious that the Fifth day, ruled by the energy of Quetzalcoatl, holds a special Breakthrough quality in any of the Underworlds. The fact that already at this point so many people have pledged to participate in the meditations around the midpoint of this Fifth day in the Galactic Underworld is very telling. Although this Breakthrough Celebration has been prepared for by the Oneness Celebration (June 6-8 2004) the Midlight Meditation (June 1-2, 2005) or the entry point of the Breakthrough Celebration (May 27-28, 2006) this earlier events were of a considerably smaller scale than what that of the midpoint of the Fifth day.
This is not an accident and it has been predicted since long because of the very breakthrough nature of the Fifth day. A great value of the Mayan calendar is that knowledge of it will help people be aware of their relationship to the divine time plan. The particular Fifth day of the Galactic Underworld is conducive to a breakthrough in the balancing of the two hemispheres of the human mind and of the planet, something that by itself may prepare for a quantum jump to oneness and peace. Yet, the way I look upon it, peace or balance will not come automatically in the Galactic Underworld, because in this Underworld human beings are attaining a state of consciousness where we are no longer puppets of the divine plan. We have, in other words, on this level to make a choice, collectively speaking, as to whether we are going to manifest the reality of Oneness and Peace that the divine plan creates the possibility for. There is thus a tremendous value with every person that makes this choice and will work to see it come into fruition.
The closer we come to the fulfillment of the divine creation process late in 2011 the more difficult will predictions be, because at the level of the Galactic Underworld increasingly more will depend on the choices human individuals make. This may sound quite paradoxical, but personally I do not believe in either of the simplistic views ("we totally create our own reality") or ("everything is pre-determined"). Especially in the present Galactic Underworld the future of the planet depends on an interaction between energies of time that are conducive to a certain reality (as we may learn from the Mayan calendar) and the choices that human beings make and especially the inner reality that they create.
It may be argued that external peace (absence of war) is not the most urgent challenge facing humanity at the present time. As was pointed out by Don Alejandro in his recent message environmental concerns may now be more pressing for the survival of the planet. Yet, the peace meditations around the midpoint of the Fifth day is about supporting an inner change and the creation of a new coherent field of consciousness. Hence, it is possible that such a field will bring about positive effects also when it comes to other things that plague our planet. A state of Oneness by itself is about breaking down not only perceived barriers between people, but also between the human beings and nature that ultimately are behind global warming and other threats to the planet. Hence, in my opinion, peace, being peace, is a focus as good as any for this Breakthrough Celebration.
The second half of the Fifth day (May 22 - November 19, 2007) of the Galactic Underworld may be expected to be energetically favorable for a rapid broadening of the desires and manifestation of peace in the world. Needless to say, not everybody will be part of this process and many will resist it. Yet, the parallel especially with the Fifth day of the Planetary Underworld (1913-1932) is natural to make. The first half of this saw a hard resistance to the breakthrough of the modern world with its democracy, a resistance especially manifested in World War I, where the old empires sought to hold on to power. The second half (1923-32), however, was the time when this resistance was flooded by the new collective desires for collective participation in the rule of nations and a new freedom. If we are able today at the midpoint of the Fifth day of the Galactic Underworld to prepare the ground for peace something similar may emerge in our own immediate future. For this to happen we need not only to walk our talk, but actually be our talk of peace of oneness, and if we are we may be part of co-creating with the divine an flooding of peace.

Important Update From www.commonpassion.org
The start of the Breakthrough Celebration and World Peace-Oneness* events is just around the corner. Shortly I'll be sending you the shared intentions that we'll all hold in heart and mind as we help *transform our world in oneness, peace and harmony.
Just a few quick notes and reminders:
1.. Many individuals and groups have signed up for one day to participate. However, oneness, peace and harmony isn't an event, it's a way of being, a presence, a transformational process on an individual and collective scale. To this end, I encourage you to participate every day during the two weeks (May 15th - 29th) of the Breakthrough Celebration. We made it easier for you to do this. Daily you can view a calendar, by region and date, of all the events you can tune into locally or non-locally. You can view it here (you may want to bookmark this page):
(If you don't see your group, please re-register)
As you can see, you can stay in a meditative-prayer state 24/7 for the entire Breakthrough Celebration while connecting in oneness with brothers and sisters around the world.
2. I've attached a press release that can be distributed as widely as you have time to cast it. Send it to your local newspaper, civic groups, local churches and meditation groups, radio and TV talk shows, or anyone else you think may want to know what we're up to. If they ask for more information, just send them to our www.CommonPassion.org web site.
3. When you have a few moments, please listen/watch to these very beautiful, touching and inspiring peace songs. I love these artists and their music; I suspect you will too:
"Be the Change" by James Twyman: http://www.emissaryoflight.com
"If I had One Prayer" by Karl Anthony: http://youtube.com/watch?v=BQeeZDkMCUQ
In fact, I'd like to suggest that each day of the Breakthrough Celebration, we listen/watch to each of these before we join in heart and mind.
4. We will be doing these large-scale oneness processes every quarter. We're looking for grants and sponsors as this is a very costly endeavor. Until we do, if everyone who participates, who can afford to, just donates $11.00 or more each, we can pay some of our volunteers who've made this event possible, improve our technology and infrastructure, and expand our reach to millions of others. I really don't like asking for money, but sometimes the cause is worth stepping outside my comfort zone. Please help if you are able, but please feel no pressure if you cannot or do not want to. A gift is only a gift if it comes freely, and that is all I am asking. Thank you.
Please pass this message on to every participant in your group or to others whom you think may want to join us.
From the depths of my heart to yours, I celebrate our common passion for a world of peace, harmony....and an global awakening to oneness.
All my best, Joseph R. Giove, Founder, Executive Director, www..CommonPassion.org
