From Hirohide Yanase, Japan
To all my brothers and sisters in the world
who had been handed down Mayan wisdom from Jose and are now handing it down to other fellow humans for the sake of mankind
Day Out of Time, it's a peculiar name.
Cosmic Diary, a 13 moon calendar, is a 13 months 28days calendar plus 1 day. (28 x 13=364 +1=365) This one day is called the 'Day Out of Time' and it belongs to no months or weeks. It functions to adjust the number of days and to harmonize the sun and the moon.
I heard that when the league of Nations was established for world peace one of the first agendas to be discussed was the calendar reform. Jose Arguelles told me that when the world was about to change into 28-day cycle a controversy over the day out of time arose and the reform to the calendar which brings natural rhythm and harmony did not become reality.
One day in 1998 I had an inspiration and I thought: day out of time is a strange name...but one loses sense of time at festivals and live concerts...one is out of time...so what if we have festivals on the day out of time and make it a sacred day...
I wrote up a 13 page call for Day Out of Time Festivals and elucidated the spirit of festivals in relation to art and man.
On July 25, 1999, "Day Out of Time",
people's spiritual levels will be elevated through art.
In that atmosphere, people will be emancipated from third-dimensional time.
I want to embrace the Earth with this "festival".
On July 25, 1999,
artists with the spirit of the festival in their hearts,
will create a rich atmosphere through their "thoughts" and "art".
We have started working to create such locations throughout Japan and the world,
on the "Day Out of Time".
Through art, spiritual levels will be exalted.
And within that space, people will be liberated from third-dimensional time.
On the "Day Out of Time",
the overall spiritual level of the village will be exalted and in that moment liberated from time.
I want to cradle the Earth in such a "festival".
I askef Jose Arguelles : What will you do for 1999 and 2000 when mankind turns its attention to time? I will produce over 20 festivals in Japan. Jose contacted me and asked to come to the U.S. immediately.
In their fairy house in the mountains, Jose and Lloydine corrected the English of my 13 page call overnight and read it out the next day at the conference. (It took them 90 minutes.)
The Day Out of Time Festivals spread in Japan and over the world.
In 2000 Jose Arguelles made a calendar reform proposal to the United Nations and he quoted my entire call in it.
The vision of day out of time festivals evolved and later was combined with the native rainbow bridge legend.
Festivals catalyze circulation between Noosphere and the physical world.
When Jose talked on the subject of 2012 he mentioned Day Out of Time Festivals
as worldwide preparation for Biosphere - Noosphere transition and now the awareness is well rooted.
Now the Day Out of Time is celebrated all over the world.
2012 is 13 years from 1999 and thus the next year's Day Out of Time Festival will be of utmost importance as the last 13 year wavespell which closes the Baktun 13 of history (5125 years).
The Day Out of Time of 2013 is regarded by Jose Arguelles even more important than 12-21-2012 in light of the theme 2012.
It is considered as a galactic synchronization point.
The Day Out of Time Festival on July 25, 2011 will also be of much value.
It will not only be the day to convey the meaning of 2012 and 2013 again to the world
but as the day to celebrate human evolution and planetary initiation.
We must also ask if there is a need to transmit our planetary brilliance to the galaxy, and if so, this will be the day to do so.
I will send my message of gratitude to my long time friend Jose Arguelles on this day
in the form of 'Special Lecture in Memory of Jose Arguelles: 2012 from the standpoint of Mayan Prophecy'.
The whole event will be titled 'Day Out of Time Festival , and Pray from Japan'.
I will elucidate 2012 and Mayan prophecy and the cause and effect of Japanese ignorance for not recognizing it.
Maya's wisdom is a wisdom dealing with higher dimensional time. From Maya's standpoint 2012 is an end of a cycle and the end of history.
I will convey true knowledge of Mayan wisdom so that people can proceed on this new path of evolution at this crucial time.
In order to fulfill this, I will send from Japan to people all over the world the spirit of Day Out of Time Festivals
and convey the meaning of changing 'Wishes to Prayers'.
I will call for simple and spiritual activities: we will cradle the earth in prayers in tune with galaxy and manifest the rainbow bridge!

On July 25, a festival !!
a festival for people and artists !!
who have "the spirit of festival in their hearts"!!
People who can gather 10 people, gather 10 people.
People who can gather 100 people, gather 100 people.
People who can gather 1,000 people, gather 1,000 people.
With a natural feeling, without trying excessively, realizing the concert, the event, the prayers. In other words, would you like to hold a spirit raising festival?
Driven by their desire to realize this festival, 60 to 70 artists and a number of sponsors have also started planning concerts and events. I think that even more festivals will be held in other countries throughout the world, than will be held in Japan.
The soul of the festival has been lost. Festivals seem only to be held for sightseeing purposes. Let's try to revive the spirit of festival! "Why did festivals turn into mere sightseeing attractions?" Because the people have lost touch with the "natural rhythm" within their daily lives.
The Gregorian calendar was enacted in 1582, and then the mechanical timepiece was introduced making everyone's measurement of time the same. Since then, the Industrial Revolution took place in Europe, followed by a dramatic increase in the population of mankind from 500,000,000 people then, to 6,000,000,000 people now.
Man-made urban civilization has gradually progressed mankind in a direction in which we think less and less about the natural balance, therefore facilitating this rapid increase in population. To live by this man-made rhythm, man is rapidly shifting toward artificial values that are held by man alone.
Present day agricultural methods are based on this artificial and mechanical rhythm. Through the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, insects and weeds are no longer seen. We no longer watch the moon. Long ago, when agriculture was based on a natural rhythm, farmers would look to the moon and look at the weeds. Now, it is no longer necessary. People believed that through the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers they could reap a larger crop. They mistakenly believed that the chemical fertilizers would increase their crops, and started to think that it was no longer necessary to be appreciative of nature. However, recently many children are suffering from a skin disease called "atopy" (atopic dermatitis), also many people working in agriculture are no longer healthy. The land, the soil itself, is losing it's energy. People are just now becoming aware of this situation.
"We have stopped seeing that which should be seen hiding behind the grass, that which should be seen within the tree, that which cannot be seen by the eye, the universe."
For instance, there are many women with irregular menstrual cycles that were able to achieve regular menstrual cycles just by watching the moon. By feeling the natural rhythm, the natural rhythm of the physical body also returns. By living according to the natural rhythm of the universe, this rhythm gradually permeates your being, making it possible to do things like understand what plants are saying.
Even through observing one flower, the universe can be known. At one time, all people actually lived in such a way. Since the days when poetry books called "manyoushuu" were commonly kept, Japanese would stare up at the moon, look at the flowers in bloom, watch the snow and create such poems. This was not done as a pastime, but was life itself. That is what it means to live on this earth. Time is not money. Time is art.
If one does farming, through farming, one can feel a positive energy from the universe. If one is in the medical profession, one can feel the "correspondence" of the physical body with the universe. I think that there may be a deep meaning to many of the things that are statistically overlooked. Originally, man was aware of these minute details. By making oneself aware of such subtle details, one can gain a better understanding of something greater. In the same way, there is "correspondence" between the movement of the universe and life. And people will be able to realize it.
"Society no longer feels the nature of spirit."
The natural rhythm has been lost from people's hearts. And the recognition that all is connected. In other words, a feeling of gratitude has disappeared and along with it, people lost wisdom. That is to say, that the spiritual climate in society that once fostered the festival was lost. Being focused only on efficiency and monetary gain, Society has in the process sacrificed matters of spirit.
But still, the Artists have the spirit of festival and it doesn't matter if they do it consciously or unconsciously. They have the soul of the "festival." Because of this belief, this festival has begun to progress. If the true original form of "festival" exalted the collective spirit of the village, thus changing the consciousness of the people, then entertainment and art resulted from this. Now if artists with the soul of the festival are serious, and this elevated spiritual level is shared by their friends, then the consciousness of the people can be changed. Then to make a festival from such an atmosphere should be very successful.
Before introducing the Gregorian calendar, 126 years ago, people in Japan would face the sunrise each morning and clap their hands together and bow in prayer for a moment before starting the days activities. They would also admire the moon. Agricultural activities at that time would involve observation of insects and weeds to predict the following day's weather, along with prayer. When it came time to harvest the crops, they were thankful to the land and sun, and everything being connected. At harvest time, they would hold a thanksgiving festival out of a true feeling of gratitude and appreciation.
The basis of public entertainment was the songs, dances, and so forth, of "festivals" originating from within the spiritual climate of "appreciation" for nature. For example, it was believed that farmers must feel that it is because of the soil, the sun, and the air that they were able to have a harvest. In other words, I think that they had a true understanding that all is connected. Because they knew in their hearts that only when all of these elements came together, would it be possible to reap a harvest. Also, these festivals were held annually at harvest time according to the natural dynamism. It can also be said that art was being performed according to the universal rhythm.
Within the dynamism of nature and the function of society, "festivals" played an important role of elevating the spiritual level of the entire village and maintaining the spiritual balance.
I think that genuine art illuminates something spiritual and brings it into people's daily lives. The purpose of the festival was to circulate such matters of the spiritual world within the material world. However, modern-day Japanese society has forgotten the role of art, the social support function of festivals. As an example, Japanese society has completely forgotten about the power of festivals to heal people's souls. Society does not believe in such things because it has separated the mind from the heart.
If society does not change, if people do not change their awareness, if society does not make changes to gradually start to understand the meaning of art, and the meaning of music, then Japan's regeneration in the 21st century cannot be foreseen.
Festivals, art, and public entertainment are types of social support. Why shouldn't artists create this festival while consciously thinking about reclaiming this truth? If the desire to hold a festival is born, if sympathy is learned, then let us start the festival together.
Let me know what you will be doing on July 25th,and where?
By all means, please join the festival on July 25, 1999.
Please title the "festival" (concert, event, party, or meeting) the "Day Out of Time", or, subtitle it the "Day Out of Time".
Then, please let me know the location, the time, and the activities planned. If you inform me of all of the information regarding your "Day Out of Time" festival, I will, in return, keep you informed of the locations, which artists will be playing, and the details of the activities planned for all of the festivals.
You yourself, by creating a meaningful atmosphere, by giving your all to raise people's spiritual levels from that location, and by consciously sharing this feeling with many artists, will share a mutual feeling of being connected to one another through the mutual experience of creating a meaningful atmosphere and making a moment, "Out of Time". Would you like to make it possible for people to share in this experience through the elevated spiritual levels of your friends and the audience, and the birth of moments "Out of Time" across the globe?
I would like to experience the feeling of exalted souls brought together at various locations around the world, in moments "Out of Time". This is the framework of the "Day Out of Time" festival.
On July 25, 1999,
then on July 25, 2000,
then again on July 25, 2001.
Would you like to continue the festival of "Day Out of Time" for these three years? As for this year of 1999, there will be 100 to 500 of these festivals held in Japan. A "festival" that will increase in scale every year, ten-fold, then one-hundred-fold, and it will continue multiplying like living cells.
People will naturally, without trying excessively, call out to those that have the spirit of festival in their hearts. When the spirit of festival naturally spreads from person to person and unifies them in spirit, when this unification spreads throughout the world and each person shares a defined vision; this is the goal of the "Day Out of Time" festival.
The artists that take the initiative to create a meaningful atmosphere when holding their concerts (or festival), will surely become aware of "time" and "location". We will start to feel and think about what is necessary to facilitate the creation of an elaborate atmosphere and a moment that will raise the awareness of the people. Then the people that participate in this "festival" and raise their awareness together with the artists, will not only be receptive to this exaltation of their awareness, but will also begin to seek out art that raises their awareness. It is then that the audience will begin to feel the true meaning of art again. Won't people begin to seek the circulation of the spirit and phenomena? By a slight shift in the awareness of the artist, isn't it possible to foresee that the music scene will also change? Can't you see that the people will begin to feel the meaning of the art again?
Through a change in the awareness of the people who organize traditional festivals, "festivals" will be reborn from the current tourist attractions, to something that has a soul. Can't you hear the footprints of this transformation along with the sounds of the sacred "o-kagura" (music and dance) of the 21st century? If this festival continues for three years, if the spirit of this festival spreads, then the festival on the third year, July 25, 2001, should become the festival to "Undo 2,000 Years".
To influence 120,000,000 Japanese. To influence all of the 6,000,000,000 people on the earth. While feeling the spirit of festival arising within each person, wouldn't you like to begin to live tranquilly, within nature, within the movement of the universe? If the people's consciousness is connected, their prayers may have greater power.
I think that consciousness reformation is not just a change of values. Instead, consciousness reformation is something experienced by those who awaken to the more deeply embedded living rhythm that gave birth to those values.
Feel the universal rhythm. Feel the lunar rhythm. Feel the seasons. Feel the rhythm of the grass and the trees. Feel the beauty of the flowers. Feel the message in the voices of the insects. Then, feel the rhythm of their lives within the harvest. You will then feel that the harvest is a result of the connections between life and nature.
In other words, come to know the meaning of the word "gratitude" as it was used by people in the past. And hold a festival within that feeling of gratitude. A "festival" is something that will make one "feel" the dynamism of the universe, nature, and life. "Festivals" teach us the feeling that all things are connected, are one, and by raising our spiritual level through art, the doors of perception open.
Don't you think that if it is possible for several million people, tens of millions of people, to "pray" at the same moment to synchronize their prayer with the universal rhythm and the rhythm of the living body, that the prayer has energy to cover the whole earth?
If, from the sense which the people felt in this "festival;" If a prayer for the Earth is born; If it was not a festival for sightseeing until now, but the "festival" reborn in the ceremony of a "prayer" for the new earth, I must feel a great meaning in this "festival", and in the change of consciousness of the people which is born from this "festival", in this age when the environmental pollution on a global scale continues to increase, where the communication which didn't exist in the history of mankind, the big "correspondence", may be born from Japan.
I think that the new aim of the "festival" and art comes out of the exchange of the energy of the heart, then the festival at that time causes the people's life to be socially supported in human society. The "festival" makes a circulation of the spirit and phenomena in the dynamism of the natural rhythm, and allows a constant reformation of consciousness.
I feel that the "festival" lives the Earth as Gaia, which is the Earth as a living being. I hope I will feel it with all of you.
