A new mandala image entitled, “Hand Writing on the Wall” by Richard Welker, copyright 2012.
At this posting, we are now 25 days before the end of the Mayan calendar long count and the end of a long age. The old and decayed image of a wrathful, punishing God who sends the vast majority of his children to hell to be tortured for eternity is dying. All around us we can see the collapse of this ancient belief system.
We are entering a new paradigm characterized by universal love, cooperation, equality of feeling and reason, and respect not only for each other but for our Mother, this earth. A new awareness is growing that contrary to the dogma of scientism, it is consciousness itself that is the fundamental cause of matter and not the other way around. The writing on the wall is the inevitability of a new global mind change, a new collective belief system, and a new vision for humanity to emerge.
The title of this image recalls the story in the Bible in the book of Daniel of the handwriting on the wall that was witnessed at a banquet hosted by king Belshazzar. As those at the feast profaned the sacred vessels pillaged from the Jerusalem Temple, a disembodied hand appeared and wrote on the palace wall the words, “Mene, Mene, Tekel, u-Pharsin.” The prophet Daniel was summoned and interpreted this message as the imminent end for the Babylonian kingdom. That night, Belshazzar was killed and the Persians sacked the capital city. (from Wikipedia)
