Shape Shifting Fire Circle

The Mayan View
From Shape Shifting: Shamanic Techniques for Global and Personal Transformation
by JOHN PERKINS


The great stone pyramid rose out of the jungle like a volcano into the morning sky. A monument to endurance, it had defied gods who sent hurricanes across the Gulf of Mexico to destroy it and grave robbers who had hacked away at it for countless centuries, picking it clean of all its jade and gold, leaving only the rocks, the plants that took root along its precipitous walls, and the carved figure at its summit.

It seemed part of the landscape, a cousin of the forest; but the pyramid had been conceived by people, every Stone set in place by human hands. It was the creation of a civilization of magicians who had transformed the Yucatan from a tangled jungle into a land of agricultural bounty, splendid cities, and architectural masterpieces.

The Maya drained the swamps. They constructed massive islandlike platforms in the marshes that allowed human culture to flourish where crocodiles once had reigned. They devised a calendar more accurate than the one we use today, created their own written language, built temples as graceful as any found on the Acropolis, and pyramids that in beauty and majesty surpass the best of Egypt.

Then these magicians performed their most mysterious act, one that has baffled archeologists and philosophers, anthropologists, and poets ever since.

“How long have human beings walked this earth?” Viejo Itza asked me. Standing in the sunny space that formed a bridge between the dark wall of trees behind us and the shadow of the pyramid in front, the two of us peered up into the morning light at the summit of the great stone monument that had endured the test of gods and men and time.

I had to think about his question. I knew I had read the answer, but I am cursed with fogetfulness when it comes to numbers. He poked the tip of his gnarled walking stick into a leaf that had settled in our path. “A million years?” I guessed.

“Good enough.” He smiled my way and straightened until his arms and the stick pointed up and forward. From where I stood, they framed the pyramid. He stepped into its shadow. I followed, thankful for the coolness of the shade. “Numbers don’t really matter,” he continued. “We’ve survived many catastrophes. According to the legends, we people are in our fifth creation—destroyed four times before.” He paused. The air was still, as though nature herself had stopped to listen. “Each time it has been a Shapeshifter—what you might call ‘sorcerer’ or ‘prophet’—who led us out of the abyss.”
