Where to Be for the Mayan Calendar End

Nice uplifting post about what the actual Mayan belief is for what is to come:

Mayan spiritual leader in the Guatemalan Highlands, he welcomes people from all cultures to join in on the celebrations by showing their appreciation and praying for the new cycle to be better and to help replenish the Earth, and wash it from the troubled times it has seen.

He lists many important Mayan locations to consider but I liked his home-country recommendations:

If you do find yourself in Guatemala, I would say the place to be would be the ancient and famous city ruins of Tikal. I imagine there will be hundreds if not thousands of people there to celebrate this day. If you are looking for something a little more out of the way, the ruins at El Mirador would be a great choice. It is a three-day hike to get there, so you wouldn’t have the numbers, but the spiritual experience would be remarkable. Really though, with so many ruin sites scattered around the country, there will be no shortage of ceremonies and parties going on!

If you can’t be in Mayan places, his final recommendation is just as good:

…make sure you go outside and feel the sun if possible. Of course it may be cloudy and you may not feel the sun directly, but go out and appreciate this last sunlight of the fifth age. Welcome the sixth age, and pray (in your own way) that the new age will bring better times to our planet, and that mankind will evolve. That we will learn to take better care of the Earth and nature. That we will learn to change our destructive ways and become a peaceful and sustainable species.
