[An excerpt from ‘World War 4 Report‘, by Bill Weinberg]
The government of President Evo Morales announced July 17 that it will invite heads of state and indigenous leaders from around the world to Bolivia on Dec. 21, South America’s summer solstice, believing that this day will mark “the end” of capitalism and Coca-Cola, and the beginning of a time “of love” and a “culture of life.” Exterior Minister David Choquehuanca, who made the announcement, said the date was chosen because it marks the “end of the Maya calendar,” and a ceremony will be held, to be presided over by Morales, on the Island of the Sun in Lake Titicaca. Choquehuanca elaborated: “December 21 of 2012 marks the end of egoism, of division. December 21 will be the end of Coca-Cola, and the beginning of mocochinchi.” He added that on this day, “the planets will line up after 26,000 years,” but rather than meaning the end of the world it will mean “the end of hatred and the beginning of love.” (MinutoUno, Buenos Aires, July 17)
[Note from Mare – I agree with the above and have been experiencing some deep shifts within myself energetically in the days leading up to 12/21/12. It’s as if my heart chakra has opened up tremendously and I’m walking straighter and living from my heart–and courage–plus my lower chakras more than being in my head (which is where I live far too much). And many people whom I know have been sharing some interesting shifts also. Unfortunately for some though, these energies seem to be feeding their darker sides. There have been some strong astrological phenomena at play pushing us to shift. And I’m not an astrologer, so I’m not going to venture there. See below for a 12/21/12 astrological reading from Laurissa Heller of The Daily Vibe.
Also, I shared on this posting just several days ago about the numbers of women–and men!–experiencing physiological shifts in their lower chakras in the past few weeks or months. In addition here is a Message from the Grandmothers, re: the shifts taking place these days. This article I’ve excerpted here goes on to dismiss the energetic shifts of the End of the Mayan Calendar, which I don’t agree with though. If you’d like to read more there, and follow the link, it is below.]
A few comments. First, on the beverage tip. We are glad to hear Choquehuanca promoting mocochinchi, a traditional Bolivian drink which is not patented (we hope) and still belongs to the cultural commons—a kind of peach kompot flavored with cinnamon. Last we heard, the Bolivian government was promoting a new fizzy drink called “Coca-Colla” as an alternative to Coca-Cola (Colla being a name for Bolivia’s Aymara people). The idea was that unlike the “Real Thing,” this stuff really would use coca leaf extract—although Wikipedia and The Straight Dope inform us that Coca-Cola still does use coca extract, although today with no trace of actual cocaine. Reports were not clear on whether Coca-Colla would similarly use only extract from denatured or “spent” coca leaf. It would certainly be an industrial trademarked product.

The Sun moves into Capricorn, reminding us that silence feeds our soul, we are brought back to the foundation which gives our life meaning, and we search for the blanket that gives us security. There is nothing wrong with structure giving us a feeling of composure, but only if it isn’t holding us back from growth. Balance between action and being helps to strike upon a joyful life. If one hides under the covers long enough, something is sure to make a grand entrance to pull the protectant away. Birthing onto this planet takes a lot of energy, so the Universe is not going to let the experience go unanswered.
The vibration of life is asking that we move from out of the comfort zone, away our warm, fuzzy covers to take a look at life. Which is exactly what we have been doing for the last couple of years. Our milage shows great distance, although the warp speed presses on, it is time for a deep breath.
Slow it down. Slow it down. Slow it down and notice the foundation which holds you. You may not be able to see it, but it can certainly be felt~
