Concordance: A bird's eye view
By Kiara Windrider
Like the Harmonic Convergence back in August 1987,
the Harmonic Concordance of November 8, 2003,
has become a major rallying cry for the infusion of
new consciousness upon our ailing planet.
What does this event represent, and what kind
of impact will it have on our planetary evolution?
I have been receiving hundreds of articles on this
theme over the internet, and it is no easy task to try and summarize
all this, but I would like to make an attempt here to place it in
context of the larger evolutionary drama of these times. I will not so
much go into the astrological significance here, but take more of a
bird's eye perspective on this event.
There are some key themes that stand out for me. There are many who
have written in great detail of the unique astrological significance of
this moment. (Please refer to the links at end of
. There has
been unprecedented solar activity recently. The Mayan daykeepers speak
of a time of 'purification'. Earthquake and volcanic activity is on the
rise, as is social and political unrest. Many are reporting increased
spiritual and psychic perceptivity. And many are realizing that we are
not alone in the universe after all.
Like many others, I have long felt that 2003 AD would serve as a
turning point in human and planetary history, a choice point of sorts
where human consciousness would face its darkest hour and either
succumb to it or rise triumphant from the ashes. Or both. The Grand
Sextile represented in this Harmonic Concordance allows for the
possibility of hope, but it is a hope that is not separate from our
collective intentions. Millions of people came together that day to
seed a new dream for Earth, to say enough to the politics of dominance,
to say yes to an emerging galactic consciousness. Millions of people
are together creating a unified morphogenetic field of light that is
allowing the old collective thoughtforms of fear and rigidity to break
down. Yet, as light shines in through the chinks, the old control
dramas, whether personal or political, are becoming increasingly
challenged, increasingly desperate, increasingly vocal.
What this represents is the last dance of a polarized worldview. When
the Hopis and Mayas and Christians speak about the Day of Purification,
this is what they are referring to. It is not just a violent
destruction of the old forms without a renewal of hope for co-creating
heaven on earth, nor is it a sudden bright awakening without
corresponding cataclysms or loss. We are seeing increasingly how both
these forces of life and death are playing themselves out in our lives
and in our world.
As above, so below.
Ultimately, in order to better understand what is
happening on Earth, perhaps we should look to the Sun. Two weeks ago,
scientists reported the biggest Coronal Mass Ejections from the Sun
ever witnessed. Any time there is sunspot activity it activates a chain
of events that results in massive changes on the Earth. Many scientists
and seismologists are concerned that we may see unprecedented
earthquake and volcanic activity in months and years to come. Some even
see signs of a pole shift. Correspondingly, our human circuitry is also
undergoing stress and change.
Could there be more to this than we imagine? Could our Sun and solar
system be going through a bigger process than can be explained through
our current scientific data? People have been talking about Ascension
for a long time. Could there be a scientific basis to this? I want to
emphasize first that when I speak of Ascension I am not speaking of an
escape hatch where we leave the problems of Earth behind and go to some
higher realm of light, but rather we bring that higher realm of light
into the morphogenetic fields of Earth to begin the transformational
process here and now.
Where do these higher realms of light emanate from? The Mayas,
Egyptians, Hopis, and many indigenous people looked to the Sun as their
Source or Divinity. Could it be that what is happening on the Sun today
is directly related to what is taking place on Earth right now? Could
it be that the Sun Himself is going through an Ascension process,
entraining the entire solar system with it?
Some scientists seem to think so. Dr. Mike Lockwood of the Rutherford
Appleton National Laboratories in California claims that the magnetic
field of the sun has increased by 230% in the past hundred years. Dr.
Dmitriev at the Russian National Academy of Science states that we are
entering a highly luminous region of space, and that the entire
heliosphere, (magnetic field of the solar system) has undergone a 1000%
increase in its intensity. This is changing all life support systems in
the solar system. Ultimately, he says, the continued expansion of the
heliosphere will lead to a sudden expansion of basic harmonic
wavelength emitted by the sun, which will change the nature of all
matter in the solar system.
This is a good description of the Ascension process.
Could these great
explosions and solar flares on the Sun's surface be a preparation for
the imminent experience of a dimensional shift, a transmutation of form?
I believe that what we are experiencing on Earth today is a reflection
of this journey. The Mayans spoke of 2012 AD as representing the end of
a dimension ruled by linear time, and a transition to a world of "no-
time". Is the Harmonic Concordance one step along this grand staircase
of time, eventually crossing the threshold of the door to eternity?
I mentioned earlier that global apocalypse and planetary transformation
are two manifestations of the same evolutionary force. Perhaps it takes
a massive human crisis for the entrenched human ego to surrender to its
own latent divinity. Perhaps this is what we are seeing today, whether
on the environmental, political, or spiritual levels. As my friend
Barry Martin puts it,
"On the path of awakening, we inevitably encounter both assistance and
resistance. Within a world of duality, every time a white magician is
born, a black master also takes incarnation. As an old age dies and a
new era is born within the realm of polarity, forces that both support
and resist evolution come forth in their most potent manifestations .
Out of the unfolding fusion of all apparent opposites, a never-before-
known level of deeply embodied spirit will emerge. Ever-vaster realms
of experience will be revealed in God's eternal dance of knowing and
experiencing itself in an infinity of possibility."
The Great Initiation has begun, and the astrological energies of the
Harmonic Concordance reflect the evolutionary energies now underway. If
our understanding of the Mayans is correct, we have 9 years before the
end of a very long cycle of linear time to the beginning of a solar
As an aside, I would like to comment briefly on Drunvalo's article
which has been running around the internet where he refers to the
possibility that due to distortions in the Gregorian calendar, the
Mayan end date of 2012 AD should actually be 2003 AD. I respect his
insights but in this regard I think he is mistaken. The Mayan calendar
runs completely independently of Gregorian time, and their count is
still current. They have no need to refer to the Gregorian calendar to
tell us that what they know of time cycles in the present moment. If
they say it is nine years away, it is nine years away regardless of
what the Gregorian timeline tells us.
May we walk in beauty.
