The Kalendar: A New Medicine Wheel

There’s a new spiritual technology coming which can help individuals and communities to tap into the power of Nature and Sacred Time. It is influenced by some indigenous and aboriginal cultural beliefs as well as the mystical vision of Sun Bear (author of the classic book “The Medicine Wheel”), but it goes to an even deeper, more intricate place to access power available through a universal sacred language and a synthesis of the philosophical ideas of ancient Daoism and Confucianism.

The new Medicine Wheel does not rely on any one tribe’s sacred stories and medicine, or even on the culture of a large group of geographically proximate tribes, but on the collective wisdom of humanity. It incorporates wisdom from nature-based religions (animism), tradition-based religions (Chinese religions and Abrahamic faiths), and contemporary philosophies (developmental psychology and interdisciplinary meta-theory).

If this sounds like something you want to learn more about, I invite you to follow along my Facebook page at Joe Perez – Author. Keep an open mind and you will discover a little bit every day.

Here’s just a sample:

  • The Nine Square Kalendar — Discover poetry and images to help you explore the subtle patterns of change described by a six-line hexagram given for every half-day of the year. Each hexagram is also linked to a Kosmic Coordinate which matches a Stage, Type, Quadrant, and Zone from contemporary Integral Theory.
  • The New Zodiac — Discover 54 new animal totems, along with their unique mythic stories as each animal rose to prominence in the the Great War of the Zodiacs. Plants and minerals are also recognized throughout the year.
  • The Lingua-U — Discover 729 sacred mantras for use with breathwork and private or group meditations to help experience the sacred sounds. These are universal phonetic symbols giving rise to the beauty and sacredness of the most important symbols of 7,000 languages, including Native and Aboriginal languages.

The Kalendar Series as Integral Christian Sacred Literature

i hesitate to write that The Kalendar Series is the domain of a specific religion, because it isn’t. I am a Catholic Christian, but The Kalendar no more belongs to Christianity than the I Ching belongs exclusively to Confuciainism, The Canon of Supreme Mystery belongs exclusively to Chinese philosophy, or The Koran belongs exclusively to Islam.

The Kalendar contains sacred poetry and literature which belongs to all the world’s sacred traditions and secular wisdom schools as well. It is a work of Integral literature, recognizably Catholic Christian (I think) by those who have the eyes open to see the connections but not so closely aligned that there isn’t room for serious debate about whether to include or exclude it from the tradition’s lights. There’s plenty to frighten traditionalists and fundamentalists who don’t want to see the literature’s gifts. There’s also plenty in The Kalendar to appeal to Eastern spiritual aficionados, including a whole new interpretation of the Canon of Supreme Mystery, the hidden and virtually unknown Summa Theologica written by the sage who is called the Thomas Aquinas of ancient China.

The tenets of the Catholic Christian tradition are boldly asserted in the opening poems of “The Surrender of Symbiosis”, in particular the poems on “Angel” (The First Month), “Bible” (the Solstice), and “Book” (Christmas afternoon). “Angel” proclaims a personal connection to the Archangel Gabriel, “Bible” claims a Prophetic role for Kalen O’Tolan, the book’s protagonist who is called The Word made Flesh, and “Book” announces that Judeo-Christian-Islamic faith is not a religion of the Book or even of Language, but of the Lingua-U (Meta-Language). Since the Lingua-U is essentially one with the most secret and comprehensive philosophical treatise of China, it is not only an ecumenical and interfaith proclamation within the Abrahamic faiths but a proclamation of potential East/West harmony.

I won’t analyze the poetry now, except to say that it makes a stunning claim to be part of the mainstream Judeo-Christian-Islamic Prophetic tradition, not because the author says so (which would be silly and arrogant), but because the author has presented Lingua-U, an Angelic Tongue which provides irrefutable numerological and esoteric validation of key elements of the Abrahamic faiths from Genesis to the Book of Revelations to the Koran. In the poetry of this volume, it is announced that The Kalendar is a poem of 729 stations, one for each hexagram of the Canon of Supreme Mystery, with the first station being “Bible” (Mind of God), and the final station being “Yahweh” (Name of God). Although Lingua-U is technically an invented language, the assignment of meta-words to stations is not at the language creator’s discretion but a function of the kinesthetic features of each letter’s pronunciation when their phonetic features are described with subtle energy markers. The first and last stations are linked soteriologically and as a matter of Revelation for believers who accept a place for The Kalendar in the mosaic of scripture for their tradition.

Wild, trippy stuff, sacred as heck … as well as a nifty piece of child-friendly sci-fi fantasy fiction about a boy and a talking bear on a quest to obtain the original Omphalos of Delphi … hope you enjoy it.

Here’s an excerpt from the poem “Bible”‘s second set of verses.


Bible is Baby:
Yang Yang Yang Yang Yang Yang Yang!
They are the same to seven marks of subtle energy!
This proof has come by Lingua-U!

Born at Midnight’s Bay,
the Word is made Flesh.

Listen, there is good news!

Baby is Kalen (in My story),
a new prophet to show you
how Bible comes from Yahweh —
You You You You You You becoming
Yang Yang Yang Yang Yang Yang!
Hallelujiah, praise him!

The Holy Names must be set in union
starting with this linguistic communion
linking the last You to the first Yang!
Kalen is the Rounder to show you the Round!

New revelation
comes not to replace
or end a chapter of Bible,
but to stand upright
as a living being
made One with everything.

The Secret of Water, According to Magic, Myth, Science, Integral Thought, Mysticism, and Non-Dual Revelation

Ice specks floating in a cloud in space may be the origin of all the water on Earth. The ancient ice witnessed the solar system’s genesis and some settled on the Earth. By tracing rare components in heavy water, scientists are hoping to demonstrate this theory of water’s origin, reports the New York Times.

But could water’s secret meaning be linked to the most evolved Yang form of the Witnessing consciousness at the Seat of Unity? This is the fantastic claim made by Lingua-U.

Let’s start with a mind open to many possibilities. Water is not what it appears. It may be a voyager older than the sun which has travelled in space over billions of years. It may be an elder with memory of all the living beings who have imbibed it. It may be an alien which is observing our world to learn how we are using its gifts.

Magical and mythical perspectives on water are not uncommon, though today they are not as influential as the scientific conception of it as H20. Magicians work with water as one of the core elements of all things: it is sometimes seen as a cleansing, healing, and emotional element. In myth, water deities such as Poseidon have been controlling the oceans, rivers, storms, and floods for thousands of years.

And then there’s the mystic’s view of water as an analogy for the Divine. Poets such as Rumi have compared the ocean without shores to the essence of being and the waves of the ocean to creation itself, manifest beings.

There is another view of water which is neither magical, mythic, scientific, nor merely mystical. It is a combination of these perspectives which takes each of these views as partially valid at particular stations of life (often seen as a developmental continuum of evolutionary stages). This, of course, is an integral understanding, in the sense of the Integral spirituality linked to Ken Wilber’s core philosophy or evolutionary spirituality.

And then there is yet another view of water which is non-dual in the sense that it recognizes that there is only one Reality, the Kosmos manifest and unmanifest, come and not yet come, which is simultaneously in disguise as a myriad of forms, water included. So water is not just an analogy for Spirit, but the Reality itself doing what it always does.

It is the nondual understanding that Lingua-U illuminates. The meta-language is a genuine Wheel of Spirit providing insights into the spiritual meaning of language that have been previously hidden. These insights are drawn not from water as such, but from water’s meta-word (or Holy Name).

The meta-word for water in Lingua-U is waa-laɪ. It includes by reference the English water plus all the other names for water in other languages (Japanese’s mizu, Latin’s aqua, Russian’s voda, Greek’s nero, etc.).

Unlike most of the words for water in extant languages, Waa-laɪ (pronounced Wah-Lie) is endowed with a cosmological significance. That is, meta-words in Lingua-U show their place in the associated Kosmology. There is abundant information available to those who look at the pictures of this cosmic vision. For his reason I sometimes call Lingua-U a language of “non-dual revelation”.

Technically speaking, waa-laɪ is a Yang meta-word at the ultimate station of the Yang causeway of the Unified zone of the Individual Coalescing quadrant of the 8th-person perspective on consciousness. If you are familiar with Integral theory, then with a few short pointing out instructions you will easily recognize this spot on the emerging meta-theoretical integral maps.

Put simply, Lingua-U reveals to us a new and secret meaning to water by virtue of its meta-word: it is tied to the penultimate Yang form of the Witnessing consciousness in its purest form at the Seat of Consciousness. Without it, there is no Watching, which is its Yin complement in the Element of Ocean. Without it, there is no Washing, which is its Yin complement in the Element of Earth. Without it, the delicate W does not establish the Wall to protect itself from the dark side of the H; the declining Yang of Witnessing/Holistic consciousness is protected from the ascending Yin.

Waa-laɪ isn’t proper Lingua-U, but the transliteration of the meta-language into the International Phonetic Alphabet. The actual Lingua-U consists of only three symbols: Yang, Yin, and Unitive. The meta-word for water is really spelled ┆╎│┆┆│. It is a picture of the meta-word’s subtle energy itself, so Lingua-U is a sort of pictographic language as you can see. When looking at water’s subtle energy, you can not only conceptualize that water is a non-dual expression of the Real, but you can see it and feel it and hear it.

The Lingua-U meta-word for water itself is a set of instructions for obtaining a non-dual spiritual realization. As you learn the meta-words for all things, the hidden underlying unity at a subtle level of consciousness becomes manifest in your mind. As you speak the language, you feel the energy in your body. Words are abstractions; meta-words are subtle energetic pictures which can be felt kinesthetically in your speech organs.

As you draw the connections between the Lingua-U and the Kalendar, the role of water and time is elucidated; as you see the connection to the Atlas, the role of water and space is elucidated. Level after level of unfolding depth begin to open up as one shifts one’s worldview by learning Lingua-U. Space, Time, and Thought are revealed to have a hidden unity and purpose.

I hope you are inspired to learn more about Lingua-U.  Thirsty? Go get some ┆╎│┆┆│.
