On 122112, we ended our 7-year long bicycle Pilgrimage, making an offering of The Serpent of Light (from Tibet) during an Aymara Solstice ceremony at Tiawanaku, Bolivia (fotos in Gallery). The text as follows:
BOLON YOKTE, LORD OF CREATION, GOD OF THE PORTAL, VIRACOCHA, GOD OF ACTION, SHAPER OF WORLDS, INTI, LIGHT AND WARMTH OF THE WORLD, PACHAMAMA, MOTHER EARTH, WE BOW BEFORE YOU HUMBLE IN YOUR PRESENCE! We are of Ophiuchus, the Serpent Bearer.
We pay homage to Lord Shiva, Chakrasamvara, and our own, Vajrachod, the Divine Lover! We come bearing the 'Serpent of Light,' an offering from Tibet, to Tiahuanacu. We implore you to approve and accept these gifts, blessings of consciousness to renew the world. We bring the Yin energy, the Female energy, shifting the Kundalini from the East to the West. This, to renew the Spirit of Mother Earth, Pachamama! May the Female-Energy penetrate every darkness! The time has come, this day, the 21st of December, 2012, the end of the Maya Calendar, this Solstice, so be it!
From the Mother Goddess of the World, Qomolungma, the Serpent of Light, we offer… From Chile, the heart of the tree of life, we offer… From Tibet, The Heart Stone, we offer…
We have managed these Holy objects around the world, with the help of many people, who we thank, beginning with my own Parents, my sister, Sally. Bless them all:
Phyllis Rock, 'The light is with you, the light is within you!

We offer our lives, in service of the coming age! We pray for a more positive cycle, dominated by female, not male, energy. May this bring more peace, more caring, more loving, more sharing and giving! Let us learn to sacrifice for others -- that we might be worthy to participate in the greatest of miracles, a return to 'The Garden,' conceiving unconditional love!
From the Age of Kali, from male energy, to the Age of Kalki, to female energy we petition for peace on earth, good will, all EMBRACING MOTHER EARTH, PACHAMAMA, ONCE AGAIN!
MAY BOLON YOKTE APPROVE!
MAY VIRACOCHA APPROVE!
MAY INTI APPROVE!
MAY PACHAMAMA APPROVE!
WE BESEECH YOU

"You have such a lovely capacity to encourage people and assist them in attaining a better concept about themselves and the world. Bless you for all you sow into people's lives!"
26 March 2011
Your memory is impressive! You were a sort of “Bob Dylan of sports television”…not satisfied with the status quo…constantly interested in breaking the mold. You were the one who hired me…and were, for sure, a great first boss…Chuck and Roone attention and influence came later. Will never forget, and always appreciate.
"One in a million!'
"You have taught us about physical challenges and that nothing is insurmountable!"
From your sister Sally"
