Evo Morales – President of Bolivia at the UN General Assembly 67th Session ~ Sep 2012(excerpt from an English translation of his speech)
" I would like to say that according to the Mayan Calendar the 21st of December marks the end of the time and the beginning of no-time. It is the end of the Macha (hatred) and the beginning of the Pacha (Pachamama is a goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. Pachamama is usually translated as Mother Earth, or "Mother world".) It is the end of selfishness and the beginning of brotherhood. It is the end of individualism and the beginning of collectivism… the 21st of December this year.
The scientists know very well that this marks the end of an anthropocentric life and the beginning of a biocentric life. It is the end of hatred & the beginning of love. The end of lies & the beginning of truth. It is the end of sadness & the beginning of joy. It is the end of division & the beginning of unity. This is a theme to be developed, that is why… we invite you, those who bet on mankind, we invite those who want to share their instances for the good of mankind…I wish to invite you to an international meeting on 21st of December this year. An invitation to receive the new cycle, a cycle of harmony for mother earth."
