2 - Do not even try to visit us during this festive season.

One Million people in the streets is a crowd 

(and that’s just the local residents). 

If you do not speak the language

you get isolated and very lost.

Having fun might change into a personal nightmare.

And if it starts raining, or you could get sick with swine flu?
As this is not an invitation
more details are further down.

Rekindle your Life for another year
Rekindle your Dream for another year.

3 - Wherever you may be

on the evening of 24 Dec

Just light a small flame and join us

united in thought for one moment .

4 - To light your candle's small flame

is to rekindle your own life for another year,

to be aware of your own inner light 

in the universe within

 the very beat, of your heart,

 join the music.

We join in a celebration to the light of knowledge.

Rejoicing in the one and only life we share.

Light  festival   -   tamales as a gift

5 - Tamales can be traced back to as early as 5000 BC

Those were the times before money existed.

 You could not buy food you learnt how to feed yourselves.

 On their long exploring missions

 tamales served as a nutritious and portable food

  for Aztec, Mayan, and Incan warriors.

6 - Large festive gatherings to the waterfalls and thermal springs, 
                        to camp and party for a while on fermented beverages (beer)
and later for a few days on the beach.
From border to border, masses of people in transit,
 walking on the 10 meter wide stone paved,
public road - Interamerican Highway

that still exists to this very day

 overgrown by jungle, yes,

because there are no more people left to fill these roads.

Calzada Guayabo - Interamerican high way for pedestrians.
Pre Columbian interamerican high way for pedestrians.

7 - As the last days approached,

 transit became more intense

 day and night they walked.
Reach your destination in time, (Planned day-trips).

8 - Start bright and early

to be back before the afternoon rain,

to welcome a new day from a high peak

 to watch the rising sun.

And all the children of Sibo

 open their arms to embrace the Sun Diwo.

Even the flowers open their faces and give perfume,

 to greet the sun and call the insects to a feast.

9 - And Iriria the girl, is happy and smiles

 and the sun dries her tears,

called the morning dew.

 the rainy season comes to an end,

and dry summer months lie ahead.

and celebrate years end.

Sura's fire to burn our trash,

and give back what belongs to her.

Time to light the fires to honor the Creators

So they can see all their children, to count, 

and give us light for another year.

11 - Inner light to dream,

to clearly see what we should do

to make Sibo-Sula happy

in this new year.

So they can be proud of us.

Because it was the era
 when man had honor and pride in his word.

The result of the supremacy of objective reason,

 is Bio-Logica.
12 - Therefore if you speak for Life

you dictate with the voice of a living God..

Speak for Idréa - our Cosmos,

with conviction and authority

to shine with the brilliance of all of us

in togetherness.

Many masks - each representing a different God.

13 - Awa dons the mask of Usekór

the symbol of the spokesperson, of Sibo,

the living God of the Tico Tribe.

It does not matter who is behind the Mask

"In the name of the living decree".

14 - “Do not eat unless it is passed over the fire”

and man started to eat iguana.

15 -  “Do not drink water unless it is passed over the fire”

And man learn to brew beer and herbal teas to cure many ailments

and there was a population explosion of great proportions

in the river people in Egypt, in Africa and Southeast Asia

as with the natives of the Americas

because man have discovered the perfect food.

                This beer also had Oxitetraciclina terramicina to heal all ailments.

Ripe and alive - strawberries

16 - all life is equal and sacred

Not one should go to waste

let the speaker of the truth build in words

and picture a new world in the mind of man

around Life our living God

 as the center of all.

 live and let live

now immerge many many new laws

for money, about love and even animal rights.

17 - before eating to bow your head for a moment

ask forgivenes in respect for the living you are going to enjoy.

All LIFE is Equal Sacred and not one should  go astray. Love each other as Brothers should.
All LIFE is Equal Sacred and not one should go to waste

18 - And let us remind you that, about the ninth hour,

Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying,

“Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” meaning,

'My God, My God, why are you abandoning me’

This was the moment he realized the god within, meaning Life,

 was abandoning him

19 - These were His last words:

“Father in your hands I deliver my soul”

So the world can share and know

 these sacred words - as knowledge of Life.

Today His memory is still with us and many await his return to Life.

He is the symbol of Life, meaning, a living God.

We are all alive now.


20 - A true teacher of Life says farewell to money

because teachers of the knowledge

 carry that knowledge in their hands

for the living wherever they go.

The true curandero will heal both body,

 and soul and not charge a cent.

Everybody dedicated to Life

has no bigger reward than

the pure knowledge of it all

it is like a digital debit card without limits.

Knowledge opens all doors,

 overcomes all obstacles: 

the power of knowhow

After all,

by "native law."

 you only have, what you can carry away with you

kayapo mother
You only have what you can carry away

Now listen carefully to the Magic Words.

Please, in the name of life and the living

It is a petition that cannot be refused.

A petition that is without reward

you only have 3 things to do

like 3 wishes.

Please give to life and the living

grow and make food for the world 

give a full belly

just imagine, a kitten contentedly asleep.

Food brings contentment, harmony and peace. 

Beaty is the amount of gold that  hang from your ears

Make it an art to know how

 to live in peace - with your neighbors  

and with nature, without destroying it.

Share with all - it is evil to be a hoarder 

of space and things

you are not even going to enjoy.

Hoarder of gold to hang on your ears!

Join us everywhere and light us a candle

all these evenings until year’s end 

in a celebration to Life

and the inner light to see your future very clear and bright.

Once again, downtown San Jose is the scene of a huge parade with incredible floats and music. That brings to an end our “Festival de la Luz”. San José's week long festival of lights, marked by lighting displays and concerts every evening after dark. Carnival includes 15 floats, Vintage Cars, 14 bands, and thousands of lights and is one of the most important events of the festive season in Costa Rica.
Please take Note. Expect traffic delays and crowds of over one million people gathering in downtown San Jose. Don’t even try to drive into the fiesta like a spectator tourist. Walk just like everybody else, you will meet the people, participate and be Carnivaling.
