Many people hear about the so called end date of the Mayan calendar
and today some people have even created the illusion that the Mayan
calendar was designed only to point out this end date. In reality,
there is nothing to indicate that the ancient Maya who developed the
Long Count calendar had any interest in what would happen as this
calendar came to an end. Instead what the ancient Mayan scriptures
talk about is its beginning. The exact date for this beginning was
apparently set based on the day of the year, August 11, when the sun
was in Zenith in Izapa, where most likely this calendar first came in
use. Ancient Mayan inscriptions also talk about this time as the time
when the First Father erected the World Tree so that the light could
enter, a significant event in creation. The various dynasties in the
different Mayan city states would then try to track a relationship to
this seminal event by First Father and legitimize their power based on

The fact that the Mayan Long Count was based on the day the sun was in
Zenith in Izapa, has however created a very significant
misunder-standing among modern people and this is that it would end on
December 21, 2012. The particular date the sun is in Zenith in this
location obviously have no relevance in the rest of the world, but
because of the power of tradition some will still adhere to it. In
reality, the creation cycle that began as the First Father erected the
World Tree will end on October 28, 2011. This day is also 13 Ahau in
the Sacred Mayan calendar, an energy with great prophetical relevance.
