161212 BLOK


161212 BLOK 
We are in Tiawanaku, Bolivia, on the verge of something historic.  It's taken seven years, cycling the world, to get here.  In the beginning (2004), we didn't understand.  Now, we do as we've been humbled in the process, unworthy n the beginning, now worthy to be the bearer of 'The Serpent of Light!' (the shifting Kundalini from Tibet to South America).  Of course, with the help of many people, particularly, Rotraut Boyens (our sponsor and 'guarding angel').
Yesterday, Johnny and I rode our bicycles some 50KM (along side Lake Titicaca), from Desaguedara, Peru, to Tiawanaku.  The first part in the sun, and relatively easy, the last through a blinding rain-wind storm, mud splattered from truck after truck.  Drenched, we recovered in front a gas heater in our room at the Akapana Hotel.  Here we were give a book, by proprietor, Rosaria Morales, this about the anthology of Tiawanaku.  It confirmed that this is the place to make the offering!  What follows are some random notes (from a book entitled, 'The Ancient Americas' which includes a wonderful quote from Lewis Mumford.  I paraphrase, 
TIME FRAME OF THE TIWANAKU CIVILIZATION:  300BC -- 1100AD
TAYPI, WHICH THIS AREA IS CALLED, IS THE FERTILE AXIS FORMED BY LAKE TITICACA -- IS THE CONVERGENCE BETWEEN THE PRINCIPLES OF 
URCO (YANG IN TAOISM):  WEST, HIGHLANDS, DRYNESS, PASTORIALISM, CELESTIALISM, AND MASCULINITY WITH
UMA (YIN IN TAOISM):  EAST, LOWLANDS, WETNESS, AGRICULTURE, THE UNDERWORLD, AND FEMININITY.
THAT THEY (URCO AND UMA) BE BROUGHT INTO CREATIVE CONJUNCTION.
TIAWANAKU OR ORIGINALLY, TAYPIKHALA, MEANS THE STONE IN THE CENTER -- THE CENTRAL POINT IN THE UNIVERSE!  THE PLACE OF ORIGIN, THE SITE OF THE BIRTH OF THE SUN.
TIAWANAKU BECAME THE CEREMONIAL CENTER OF THE ALTI PLANO (HIGH PLATEAU).
LEWIS MUNFORD WROTE:  IT WAS '…A NEW SYMBOLIC WORLD, REPRESENTING NOT ONLY A PEOPLE, BUT A WHOLE COSMOS WITH ITS GODS.'
THE AXIS MUNDI, THE MYTHIC SITUS OF WORLD CREATION AND HUMAN EMERGENCE.
THEY (the ancient TIAWANAKU people) UNDERSTOOD COSMOLOGICAL TIME WAS CYCLICAL AND REGENERATIVE, AND CREATED BY HUMAN AGENCY. 
And thus we are here to regenerate, 122112!
