The Yuga Cycle
Some years ago, it was common knowledge that the earth was flat. We laugh at how silly that notion seems now, yet at that time it seemed equally silly to think of the earth as round. The world as we know it is quickly approaching a similar paradigm shift: the evolution of human consciousness is not linear as we have long assumed, but is cyclical. The sun is part of a binary star system and our solar system is in orbit around another star. This binary orbit is the real cause of the precession of the equinoxes (the time/date twice each year at which the sun crosses the celestial equator, when day and night are of equal length) and the 24,000-year cycle of this orbit coordinates with the state of human consciousness in measurable units of time: the Yugas.
The Yugas, as described in Hinduism, or Ages, as they are known in the Greek tradition, relate to the mathematical application of a 24,000-year equinoctial cycle, measured by the Autumnal Equinox, which is divided into an Ascending Arc and a Descending Arc. Each Arc consists of 12,000 years, and during the Ascending Arc human consciousness gradually advances, while during the Descending Arc human consciousness gradually declines. Within each Arc fall four Yugas, or Ages, called: Kali Yuga/the Iron Age, Dwapara Yuga/the Bronze Age, Treta Yuga/the Silver Age, and Satya Yuga/the Golden Age.
The Dwapara Yuga, or Bronze Age, is the age of energy. The age in which human understanding of energetics either flourishes or diminishes depending upon the corresponding Arc.
Luckily, today we are embarking upon the great journey upward! We are about 315 years into the Dwapara Yuga on the Ascending Arc heading toward the Golden Age of Enlightenment. The constellations make it possible to chart the current cycle’s progression. The Autumnal Equinox is now falling in Virgo, and we find ourselves at the beginning of the Dwapara Yuga/Bronze Age.
The Kali Yuga/Iron Age that ended in A.D. 1698 was a time of materialism, when man could not grasp anything beyond the gross physical state of existence. Dwapara, the Age we are entering into, is a 2,400-year period of rapid development in all departments of man’s knowledge, the exciting beginnings of which we have just begun to experience, the Age the Langmayr Project has been researching for decades.
