The Idolatry of God: Breaking Our Addiction to Certainty and Satisfaction by Peter Rollins

You can’t be satisfied. Life is difficult. You don’t know the secret.

Whether readers are devout believers or distant seekers, The Idolatry of God shows that we must lay down our certainties and honestly admit our doubts to identify with Jesus. Rollins purposely upsets fundamentalist certainty in order to open readers up to a more loving, active manifestation of Christ’s love.

In contrast to the usual understanding of the “Good News” as a message offering satisfaction and certainty, Rollins argues for a radical and shattering alternative. He explores how the Good News actually involves embracing the idea that we can’t be whole, that life is difficult, and that we are in the dark. Showing how God has traditionally been approached as a product that will render us complete, remove our suffering, and reveal the answers, he introduces an incendiary approach to faith that invites us to joyfully embrace our brokenness, resolutely face our unknowing, and courageously accept the difficulties of existence. Only then, he argues, can we truly rob death of its sting and enter into the fullness of life.

Peter Rollins is a widely sought after writer, lecturer, storyteller and public speaker. He is also the founder of ikon, a faith group that has gained an international reputation for blending live music, visual imagery, soundscapes, theatre, ritual and reflection to create what they call ‘transformance art’.

Peter gained his higher education from Queens University, Belfast and has earned degrees (with distinction) in Scholastic Philosophy (BA Hons), Political Theory (MA) and Post-Structural thought (PhD). He is currently a research associate with the Irish School of Ecumenics in Trinity College, Dublin and is the author of the much talked about How (Not) to Speak of God. His most recent work is entitled The Orthodox Heretic and Other Impossible Tales. He was born in Belfast but currently resides in Greenwich, CT.

Chaos, Creativity, and Cosmic Consciousness By Rupert Sheldrake,Terence McKenna & Ralph Abraham

Three of the most original thinkers of our time explore issues that call into question our current views of reality, morality, and the nature of life.

• A wide-ranging investigation of the ecology of inner and outer space, the role of chaos theory in the dynamics of human creation, and the rediscovery of traditional wisdom.

In this book of “trialogues,” the late psychedelic visionary and shamanologist Terence McKenna, acclaimed biologist and originator of the morphogenetic fields theory Rupert Sheldrake, and mathematician and chaos theory scientist Ralph Abraham explore the relationships between chaos and creativity and their connection to cosmic consciousness. Their observations call into question our current views of reality, morality, and the nature of life in the universe.

Terence McKenna (l), Ralph Abraham (c) Rupert Sheldrake (r)

The authors challenge the reader to the deepest levels of thought with wide-ranging investigations of the ecology of inner and outer space, the role of chaos in the dynamics of human creation, and the resacralization of the world. Among the provocative questions the authors raise are: Is Armageddon a self-fulfilling prophecy? Are we humans the imaginers or the imagined? Are the eternal laws of nature still evolving? What is the connection between physical light and the light of consciousness?

Part ceremony, part old-fashioned intellectual discussion, these trialogues are an invitation to a new understanding of what Jean Houston calls “the dreamscapes of our everyday waking life.”

December 21 Mayan Apocalypse Observances Fueled By Mysticism And Internet | By Gabriel Stargardter

(Reuters) – A few words by an American scholar, a crumbling Mexican monument and the love of a good yarn were all it took to spawn the belief that the world could end this week.

December 21 marks the end of an age in a 5,125 year-old Maya calendar, an event that is variously interpreted as the end of days, the start of a new era or just a good excuse for a party.

Thousands of New Age mystics, spiritual adventurers and canny businessmen are converging on ancient ruins in southern Mexico and Guatemala to find out what will happen.

“No one knows what it will look like on the other side,” said Michael DiMartino, 46, a long-haired American who is organizing one of the biggest December 21 celebrations at the Maya temple site of Chichen Itza on the Yucatan peninsula.

It is not the world but “the way we perceive it” that will end, said DiMartino, who pledged his event at ground zero for 2012 acolytes will be a “distilling down of various perspectives into a unified intention for positive transformation, evolution and co-creation of a new way of being.”

A mash-up of academic speculation and existential angst seasoned with elements from several world religions, the 2012 phenomenon has been fueled by Hollywood movies and computer games, and relentlessly disseminated by Internet doom-mongers.

Mass hysteria in a Russian prison, a Chinese man building survival pods for doomsday and UFO lovers seeking refuge with aliens in a French mountain village are just some of the reports that have sprung up in the final countdown to December 21.

Robert Bast, a New Zealander living in Melbourne who wrote a book called “Survive 2012” on how to cope with the possible catastrophe, believes the Maya may have sent out a warning.

“The most likely thing for me is a solar storm, but that’s not going to kill you straight away. It’s more of a long term disaster,” said Bast, 47, noting a flu pandemic could also strike the planet. “I feel the world isn’t as safe as we think it is. The last couple of generations have had it very cozy.”

When dawn breaks on Friday, according to the Maya Long Count calendar, it marks the end of the 13th bak’tun – an epoch lasting some 400 years – and the beginning of the 14th.

This fact would probably have languished in academic obscurity had not a young Maya expert named Michael Coe written in the 1960s that to the ancient Mesoamerican culture the date could herald an “Armageddon” to cleanse humanity.

Since then, the cult of 2012 has snowballed.

Among the sun-bleached pyramids, shaded mangroves and deep cenotes of the Maya heartland, there are hopes December 21 will bring a spiritual re-birth.

Nobody seems quite sure what to expect on Friday, but it has not stopped people getting their hopes up.

“This is the Arab Spring of the spiritual movement,” said Geoffrey Ocean Dreyer, a 52-year-old U.S. musician wearing a sombrero and mardi gras beads. “We’re going to create world peace. We’re going to Jerusalem and we’re going to rebuild Solomon’s temple.”

ANXIETY ATTACKS

The words of Coe, a highly respected Maya scholar, were published in 1966 at the height of the Cold War, stirring fears in a world haunted by the prospect of nuclear holocaust.

Coe could not be reached for comment for this article, but friends and academics who know him insist he never meant to inspire a vision of apocalypse when he committed them to paper.

Stephen Houston, a Maya expert at Brown University in Rhode Island and student of Coe’s, said too much has been read into the end of the 13th bak’tun, which was little more than a “dull mathematical declaration” used to bracket dates.

“I see it all as an expression of present day anxiety and not much more than that,” Houston said.

Few remaining inscriptions refer to the event, and the best known one is part of a monument recovered from a Maya site in Tabasco state called Tortuguero – much of which was torn down in the 1960s to make way for the construction of a cement factory.

Still, the mix of religion, ancient inscriptions and media-driven speculation about impending doom remains potent.

“I got an email the other day from a mother who was contemplating taking her own life, because she didn’t know what was really going to happen, she didn’t want her children to live through this ordeal,” said David Stuart, a Maya expert at the University of Texas. “We can dismiss it as a kooky idea, which it is, but they’re still ideas and they still have power.”

U.S. space agency NASA has sought to allay fears of impending catastrophe, noting that “our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.”

Nothing has given the 2012 theories more oxygen in the run-up to the big day than the Internet, noted John Hoopes, a Maya anthropologist at the University of Kansas.

“Computers come straight out of the same people who were smoking pot and protesting at Berkeley and Stanford,” he said, referring to U.S. student movements in the 1960s.

“This Maya calendar stuff has been part of hacktivism lore for 40 years, since the beginning, and with every significant change in computer technology, it’s gotten another boost.”

Many of those gathering in Chichen Itza praised the Internet as a discussion forum and organizing tool for New Age events.

“We don’t need leaders now we have the Internet,” said Muggy Burton, 66, who had traveled to Mexico from Canada with her 15-year-old, blue-haired granddaughter, Talis Hardy.

The two, who communicate with each other by whistling, plan to live in Mexico for six months, according to Burton, who is going to homeschool Hardy. “It’s the end of the world for her, and the beginning of a new one,” she added.

MAYA SKEPTICS

Mexico’s federal government is not officially marking the phenomenon, but the country’s tourism agency has launched a “Mundo Maya 2012” website with a countdown to December 21.

Up to 200,000 people are expected to descend on Chichen Itza alone for the night of December 20.

Among modern descendants of the Maya, the idea it could all come to an end on Friday generally raises a wry smile – but they are happy to play along if it makes money.

“It’s a psychic epidemic,” said Miguel Coral, 56, a cigar salesman in Merida, a colonial town and capital of Yucatan state. “It’s all about business, but that’s fine. It helps our country. I think it’s excellent we’ve exported this idea.”

Nearby, workers built a pyramid of spray-painted polystyrene blocks for the opening of the town’s Maya festival.

“If people who believe in this joke want to come, let them,” said Jose May, a Merida tourism official of Maya descent. “Nobody here believes that. Those people were sold an idea.”

Hazy rumors have helped feed the sense of anticipation.

A few hours’ drive south of Merida in the remote Maya town of Xul, which means “the end,” media reports began circulating as early as 2008 that a group of Italians were readying themselves for impending doom by building apocalypse-proof bunkers.

Today, the settlement dubbed the “end of the world resort” is open for business as “Eco Spa Las Aguilas.”

“There’s no truth in it,” said deputy manager Andrea Podesta, 45, referring to speculation it was a cult.

“Some people came here, took some hidden photos, and published some very unpleasant articles about us,” he added, noting the glistening new spa was booked up well into 2013.

Inside, a group of elderly Italians, mostly dressed in white, were watching the path of an asteroid on a giant screen. A black-and-white image of Christ’s face hung from the wall and a large stone statue of a robed woman greeted visitors.

Whatever lies in store for the planet, even Maya academics who have fought to play down the hype surrounding the passing of another 24 hours feel there could still be some surprises.

“I think there may be some mischief on December 21 because the whole world is watching,” said Hoopes in Kansas, citing rumors hacktivist group Anonymous was planning a stunt. “It’s a very fertile opportunity for a tremendous prank.”

10 Doomsday Predictions That Didn’t Come True

In light of the Rapture being postponed, here are 10 other predictions that didn’t herald the end of the world…

Synthesis 2012 Festival Mayan Calendar Celebration in Chichen Itza and Piste Pueblo


Welcome to the Synthesis 2012 festival, A global gathering, world music festival and spiritual celebration in Piste pueblo and Chichen Itza in the Yucatan. This 2012 festival will occur at the end of the Mayan Calendar on Dec 20th to 23rd this year. We will arrive on the 20th and participate in the global gathering on the Winter Solstice on the 21st. The Synthesis 2012 festival team is working directly with the local Mayan people, event producers in Mexico to produce this historical event.

Imagine yourself here at Chichen Itza in the Yucatan with the Mayans and thousands of others at the dawn of the new age and cycle this December.

Mayan Calendar Celebration
Contrary to media sensationalism, the end of the Mayan Calendar does not mean the end of the world. When we listen to the words of the Mayan Elders, we learn that the end of the Mayan Calendar is comparable to watching your car’s odometer roll over to all zeroes. The Mayan prophecies foretell of a transition to the age of the 5th Sun, a new time when consciousness, prosperity and the Divine Feminine prevail.

Mayan Calendar Dates
Although scholars may debate whether or not December 21st, 2012 is the exact ending date for the Mayan Calendar, we choose to celebrate this time of transition at Chichen Itza on this date because it is also the Winter Solstice and the Galactic Alignment. We invite you to come celebrate and co-create with us for 3 days of music, dance, ceremony and intention-setting for this bridge of transition to the golden age of the 5th Sun at our 2012 festival.

Synthesis 2012 Festival Attractions

We are currently offering international entertainment including Reggae, West African Drum & Dance, Steel Drums, Flamenco Fusion, Afro-Funk Fusion, Cuban, Mayan Music & Dance, Prehispanic Music and Mexican Dance as well as name bands such as Scott Huckabay, Chris Berry & Pangea, Human, Freedom, Diane Patterson, Al Torre, Mirabai & Ceiba. There will also be a variety of presentations by keynote speakers, a tour of the Mayan temples and access to special places known only to locals and regular visitors. Synthesis 2012 festival participants will also receive a copy of Transforming Through 2012, an in-depth compendium of experts on the meaning of 2012.

Synthesis 2012 Festival Amenities
We have arranged catering and ground transportation and several accommodation options for this 3 day 2012 festival celebration from December 20th thru 23rd.

Chichen Itza & Surrounding Grounds
Although the main attraction is the Chichen Itza Pyramid itself, we are utilizing the nearby grounds for most of the Synthesis 2012 festival ceremonies ad celebrations. Working with the people of the Piste pueblo, we have secured several areas nearby to Chichen Itza for camping, meals, entertainment and comfort lodging.

Chichen Itza Pyramid Tour
We have also made preparations for Synthesis 2012 festival participants to receive tour passes to the Chichen Itza Pyramid on Friday, December 21st.

So mark your calendar for the Synthesis 2012 Festival and celebration in Chichen Itza at the end of the Mayan Calendar.

The Last Myth: What the Rise of Apocalyptic Thinking Tells Us About America by Mathew Barett Gross & Mel Giles

During the first dozen years of the twenty-first century–from Y2K through 2012–apocalyptic anticipation in America has leapt from the margins of society and into the mainstream. Today, nearly 60 percent of Americans believe that the events foretold in the book of Revelation will come true. But it’s not just the Christian Right that is obsessed with the end of the world; secular readers hungry for catastrophe have propelled fiction and nonfiction books about peak oil, global warming, and the end of civilization into best-sellers, while Doomsday Preppers has become one of the most talked-about new reality TV shows on television. How did we come to live in a culture obsessed by the belief that the end is nearly here?

The Last Myth explains why apocalyptic beliefs are surging within the American mainstream today. Tracing the development of our expectation of the end of the world from the beginnings of history through the modern era, and examining the global challenges facing America today, authors Mathew Barrett Gross and Mel Gilles combine history, current events, and psychological and cultural analysis to reveal the profound influence of apocalyptic thinking on America’s past, present, and future.

Engaging, powerful, and insightful, The Last Myth will change the way you look at the world–and its end.

Mathew Barrett Gross rewrote the rules of presidential politics as the director of Internet Communications for Howard Dean’s groundbreaking 2003–2004 presidential campaign. Highly regarded as a new media strategist, he has consulted for numerous political campaigns, advocacy organizations, and global NGOs, and has been profiled in the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the Boston Globe, and Fast Company. A former rock drummer and river guide, he lives in Moab, Utah.

Mel Gilles is the cofounder and director of Sol Kula Yoga and Healing in Moab, Utah. She served as a nonprofit director and consultant for over a decade. Her writing has appeared in newspapers, magazines, and blogs nationwide; her essay “The Politics of Victimization” went viral, appearing on MichaelMoore.com and BuzzFlash and reaching more than two million readers around the world.

Apocalypse Not Everything You Know About 2012, Nostradamus and the Rapture is Wrong ~ John Michael Greer

Seemingly from the beginning of time people have been obsessed with the end of time. APOCALYPSE NOT: Everything You Know about 2012, Nostradamus and the Rapture Is Wrong, publishing by Viva Editions in November, is a survey of three millennia of apocalyptic prophecies and the failed dreams and nightmares that have clustered around them. It challenges the entire body of contemporary apocalyptic belief, religious and secular, and traces today’s apocalyptic belief systems back across history.

People nowadays who believe in the Rapture or 2012 talk as though nobody has ever predicted the end of the world before. Award-winning futurist John Michael Greer pinpoints the “apocalypse meme” to its origins between 1500 and 1200 BCE and follows it up to the present. He shows just what’s happened to all of those who’ve bought into the notion that the world as we know it is going to disappear sometime soon and give way to a new world.

Among the contemporary beliefs highlighted in APOCALYPSE NOT:

• Many Americans were convinced that on May 21, 2011, the Rapture would come and every truly devout Protestant Christian would suddenly disappear from the face of the earth, going to meet Jesus in the clouds. Convinced there was a miscalculation of God’s secret message, believers then expected to be delivered on October 21, 2011, and were let down a second time.

• Greer reveals the shared historical roots that connect today’s Rapture theology with the prophecies of Karl Marx.

• Orthodox Jews have waited for the appearance of the Messiah since the time of King Solomon.

• Many Hindus eagerly anticipate the birth of Kalki, the next avatar of the great Vishnu.

• Buddhists across central Asia long for the appearance of the great Rigden Jyepo, who will vanquish the foes of the Buddhist Dharma.

• Tech-savvy Extropians dream of the Singularity, when computers of superhuman intelligence will abolish all limits to progress. The most prominent proponent of the Singularity is Ray Kurzweil, who has had significant influence on Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

By turns tragic and uproariously funny, APOCALYPSE NOT will help readers make sense of the Rapture that didn’t happen on May 21, the Mayan calendar that isn’t really Mayan and entire spectrum of the last three thousand years of people who thought, like the current crop of apocalypse fans, that they knew when the world was going to end.

JOHN MICHAEL GREER is the author of twenty-four books in the fields of alternative spirituality and future studies, including the award-winning The New Encyclopedia of the Occult, The Long Descent: A User’s Guide to the End of the Industrial Age, and Secrets of the Lost Symbol, which has been translated into eight languages. He is also the author of a popular weekly blog on the future, The Archdruid Report, http://thearchdruidreport.blogspot.com/. Born and raised in Washington State, he now lives in Cumberland, Maryland, an old red brick mill town in the Appalachians, with his wife.

For thousands of years, cultures across the globe have generated dark prophecies warning of doomsday scenarios that will bring the world to a cataclysmic end.

HISTORY reveals the most chilling of these prophecies in an attempt to find correlations between today’s unfolding events and the predictions that may have foreshadowed them. A broad range of experts deconstruct the prophecies of Nostradamus, as well as those contained in the bible, within mythology, in hieroglyphs and across other ancient texts, identifying remarkable correlations between today s unfolding events and prophesies of the past. Scientific evidence supporting the possible association between these prophecies and corresponding future scenarios will be uncovered, as the connection between the prophecy in question and prophecies from other cultures are explored.
