The Maya: where there are ends, there are beginnings



The Mayan calendar—so wildly discussed these days in relation to prophecy and doomsday—technically ends one year from this date: the 21st of December, 2012.

For many, it's a calendar full of intrigue; others, one of fear; and perhaps to the majority of people: an old stone block carved by someone who clearly ran out of space to include all of time.

Border hopping is about crossing boundaries, physical. But it is mostly about where our minds take us in that process. We cross borders so frequently that we aren't even aware we are doing it—every moment possesses opportunity, and we are on the threshold of boundaries in each one. And so this curious rock full of symbols is not a mere archaic relic. It exists in the present as much as it was created in the past, and though we pride ourselves on our modernity, we can't help but admit the entire thing is rather enigmatic to us. Dismissal is the usual human reaction to the inexplicable.

Here at Border Hopping, we welcome 2012 and its long-awaited date with the eagerness of any mind anticipating the crossing of a border. We may come to that boundary and find it as dramatic as our imaginations can conspire. Or, it may be such a subtle transition that we continue on, ever as before, without a thought or care, though certainly changed in ways that we will come to appreciate at some other time, when we are perhaps more aware, more in tune with the silent energies of our universe.

Either way, let us embrace this year, whatever it may bring, knowing that's all we really can do, eh?
