Message from Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj

Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj

Is a 13th Generation Quiche Mayan High Priest. Early in life Don Alejandro was recognized by members of his Mayan people as a messenger to carry the traditions. Since a number of years he is president of the Mayan Council of Elders, a body of 440 male and female elders of wisdom in Guatemala, representing 23 different ethnic groups and has the authority to speak on its behalf. His Mayan name "Wakatel Utiw" means Wandering Wolf and he travels the world together with his wife Elizabeth Araujo, together sharing ceremonies and Mayan traditions and prophecies. Don Alejandro is also the head of the Indigenous Council of the Americas, which has member tribes from Tierra de Fuego, to Alaska and serves as a gathering point for shamans and elders of many peoples. Don Alejandro and Elizabeth live in Antigua, Guatemala.

The following is taken from a speech Don Alejandro gave originally in Santa Fe,

New Mexico in September and adapted for his visit to the UK:

"Heart of heaven, heart of the earth, heart of the air, heart of the water

Tepeu, Kukumatz, Quetzalcoati, Kukulcan,

Balam Kitze, Balam Akab', Majacutaj, Iq Balam

Thank you, Father, for having given us life,

bless us all, those who are here on Earth

Thank you, Father, bless our people, our mountains, our rivers,

our lakes, all that we are, thank you, Father.

Honourable elders, beloved people, you who hear me, I bring this message, and

also a greeting to all who hear this voice, here is Wakatel Utiw, Wandering

Wolf, the voice of the forest, and the messenger of the Maya, who has shared

with the seven races that cover the planet Earth. I have come in fulfillment of

the prophecies, that we may all walk together, no group shall be left behind. I

am here in fulfillment of this prophecy, carrying this message to all that hear me

and to all who love the Earth, to all who love peace, and who love themselves.

We are all living beings. A tree is a life and it is an elder, the same as a human

being. A plant, while it is green, is a life. The smallest animal is a life that is part

of the life of human beings. The rocks have spirit. The volcanoes and mountains

have spirit. The rivers, oceans, and lakes have spirit. They are all children of the

Father. This is why I have come. I am the voice of the forest, the messenger of

the Maya. I come to invite you to defend our Mother Earth and see that we

continue to love the beauty of this great woman. We are millions and millions of

human beings and we are destroying her. We are mistreating her. We are

denuding and polluting her. When the Mother Earth is no longer suitable our life

will be worthless. We are creating our own misfortune, our own death.

The Mayan Prophecies tell us it is time to awaken, time for the dawn, so that

the people will have peace and will be happy. The Mayan Prophecies also tell

us, from so much walking, so much seeking, that what we are seeking, what we

have to find, at last we have found it. We are here on Earth, where we want to

be. This time has come: 13 Baktun 13 A'jau, the return of the grandparents, the

return of the wise ones to the measure of time. We are observing the control of

time. The time has come. May the people awaken. May they arise. May we all

walk together without distinction of race, color or creed, rich or poor, black or

white, indigineous or non-indigineous, people and government, to build a country

full of peace, love, tranquility and prosperity.

This is the message of the Wandering Wolf, who has travelled throughout the

Americas and who walks. Walks without money but the Father knows what he

is doing with me. I do not know where I am going. I do not know where I shall

stay. I do not know if we shall ever see each other again or not but I will leave

this message wherever I go. I leave it in the mind. I leave it in the heart. I leave

it in each breast, in each soul of my brothers and sisters where I have been.

Leaving this message in the minds of each one of you.

Cultivate it. Practice it. This is not bought or sold, it is a thing that we have to do

ourselves. We cannot wait for someone else to do it.

There have always been destroyers. They destroy peace. They destroy the

environment. They destroy the beauty of Mother Earth. They pollute space.

Scientists say we have even ruptured the balance of the Ozone layer but let us

rebuild and plant more trees. We do not have much time or life left. We have

only 14 years until the year Zero. After the year Zero there shall be peace.

There will be peace even if there are no survivors. Of course there will be peace.

We need to cultivate peace. Let us love one another. Let us defend the Earth,

our Mother, and respect our Father. His sacred mandate is among us.

We are the ones who have forgotten. We have forsaken. We have gone down a

path that is not ours. The false preachings of false religions are destroying our

own. Each people in America has its own language, its own culture. What is ours

is ours. We have no need to take from another. I am Mayan. I am travelling

through this land but I don't come to convert you into Mayans. I come to tell

you let us defend the Mother Earth. Defend our life and the lives of our

children. You in your language. You in your tradition. You in your way of

praying and making your offering. Making your payment to the Father so that

there may be peace, there may be love.

You and I may meet again in another dimension after the year Zero. The year

Zero is the word of the Maya. On March 31, 2013 the sun will be hidden for a

period of 60-70 hours and this is when we shall enter the period of the Fifth

Sun. Then will you realize that what the Mayans speak are facts and not false

preachings. We are not saying that the world will end in 2000. There are false

ones who say these things to frighten and threaten the world without awakening.

But the Mayan priests and astronomers know what is happening and see what

shall happen in the future. This is my only message. I do not come to intimidate

you. I come to say that we should love one another. Let us walk together. We

are all children and we pray that our Father be with us. Thank you."
