Some time ago I did a review of a book written by Carlos Barrios, a Mayan Elder, entitled "Book of Destiny." The review was brief, as most my book reviews tend to be, but Kashonia has written one that has whole excerpts from the book.
Carlos Barrios has not been happy with what some have said about the Mayan Prophecies, including that the world will end in 2012. However, he does believe it will be transformed, as all of the world prophecies are converging. That transformation is already happening, according to Barrios. So if you are interested, you can visit Kashonia's blog and read it in its entirety.
