**==GALATIC SKY HOLE MEANING==**
The galactic sky hole is also known as the galactic center. This is the spot that the Milky Way galaxy rotates around. It is believed by scientists that there is a super massive black hole located there. Visually it is near the brightest area of the Milky Way when viewed in the night sky. Along this bright trail of stars a dark rift may also be seen with the naked eye. Many meso-American cultures saw the “dark rift” as the birth place of the universe. Myth told of deities riding serpent ropes out of the sky center into this plane of existence. It is predicted by the ancient Mayans, Tolmecs and Aztecs that their lord of peace, Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent, would return through the galactic sky hole ushering in a new reign of peace at the end of the present age. The present Mayan calendar ends in the Gregorian year 2012.. This does not mean the world is going to end, just as it doesn’t end on December 31 each year. Calendars’ end. However, the prediction of a coming age of consciousness and peace has been predicted again and again all over the world.
This design shows the Milky Way forming a human heart. From the spiraling center descend
celestial messengers of peace. Each rides their own deity rope based on the predictions inherent in their individual stories of peace. First is Aquarius, the water bearer, symbol of human advancement and consciousness since time immemorial spilling behind her healing waters. Next is the Buddha, the enlightened one. There are many incarnations of Buddha who teaches the release of suffering and attainment of enlightenment, pure love. He is riding a flame in reference to the first Buddha’s Fire Sermon. Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina predicted by the Hopis to signal the emergence into the Fifth World. This world will unfortunately start with WWIII but for those that survive, we will become as one race, speaking one tongue, living in peace. He rides a rope of maize considered to be a sustaining life gift from the Great Spirit. Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent, in his mouth is the face of Pakal thought to be the last human embodiment of the peaceful deity. Jesus is the Christian god sent to earth to teach humanity about understanding, love and kindness. He is predicted to return from the sky on a trail of clouds. The supreme Hindu god, Krisna, as Balaji, the newborn cosmic child, returns in the universal deluge ending the present Kali Yuga.
