MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Road/EB, also known as Human, is a symbol of the Road of our Destiny. The glyph illustrates this road on Human’s head. We are in charge of our own road, given the Gift of Free Will. Our destiny is a result of the Choices we Make. In the end, our Choices define our Life and identify Who we Are.
Tone 11 brings the energy of Resolution. Through the clarity of a Higher Perspective, we reconcile a meaning, purpose, and direction. Tone 11 is the day the shaman climb to the Highest Altar for a Divine Perspective.
Road/EB offers us the Big Picture. EB reminds us of the Creation of Humanity. Divine thought was put into all our gifts, talents, and personal capabilities. More than that, we weren’t “cut from a mold.” No two of us are alike, yet the Creator is said to know every hair on our head. All our special gifts, talents, and capabilities were customized. Each one of us was touched by the Creator’s Hand. As One, we hold the potential for unlimited possibilities.
If we look at the detail of our design… all the “hairs of humanity”… we might imagine the magnitude of the Consciousness of the Creator. The Supreme Lord of All looks down upon Humanity from the Highest Altar. The Creator loves the beauty and function of our form and the Power of our Spirit. Yet, from a Higher Perspective that’s not the only thing the Creator looks down to see. The Creator, like Human, looks for the fulfillment of a Divine Purpose.
We were each created as children of God, holding the familial resemblance. Each Human is recognized as the Scion, the firstborn descendant, so the Whole of Humanity would share equally in the inheritance. All our “firsts” would be celebrated equally… the first smile, the first steps… like it had never been seen before. There would be no one above or below us. No One of us would present something for someone else to live up to. We would each be given every advantage to succeed.
An old friend spent years working on a robot. This was back in the 1980’s, before robots were a part of our daily lives… and back when our idea of a robot was an “animated human.” My friend’s robot was a half-baked concoction of metal, gears, and mechanisms. He spent years tinkering on the details of the specifications. When he talked about his robot, it wasn’t about the exacting details. His Passion was talking about all the cool things this robot was going to do. Behind every design is a reason.
Together, Dog/OC, the Day Sign of Unconditional Love, and Monkey/CHUEN, the Mystic, Alchemist, and Creator, reflect the Heart and Mind of the Creator. We were designed for the Creation of Unconditional Love.Though the pieces and parts of us are beautiful, the Creator looks to see the fulfillment of our Destiny. We might see the Consciousness of our Spiritual Gifts as an end unto itself. They were designed by the Creator to fulfill our Own Divine Purpose. Each one of us were perfectly equipped to Create Love in our own way.
The Power of all our Spiritual Gifts and our Authority to live in Peace and Harmony is Multiplied to Abundance when they are all Offered to God for a Divine Purpose. As we sacrifice that treasure of every accomplishment and aspiration, the Creator steps in as the Authority of Creation. The Gift of All Power is received as a Choice of our own Free Will. Our effort to reach for our Highest Aspirations can only be seen in Spirit. When we are operating within the Covenant of a Divine Intention, we are transformed as a Personification of the Creator’s Light… God’s reflection on Earth through Humanity.
The Road/EB glyph illustrates milestones on either side of Human’s Road to Destiny. Again, we are reminded of Time. Our Spirit’s journey is an “unseen” experience. Time was given to Human as a way to see an “unseen” dynamic experience of Being. We wouldn’t define ourselves by wrinkles and grey hairs. We would our potential as a repository of Divine Wisdom. We would have the Gift to look into the future, from the Wisdom of seeing our past. We would see the Above and the Below being drawn into correspondence and balance. We were created to Experience the Dawn, our first beholding of the Light.
The Cherokee Day Sign, the Rattlesnake Tooth, is a symbol of Spiritual Medicine. The Rattlesnake Tooth was used in the Sacred Ceremony of Spiritual Healing to break the skin. It left the mark of a Time and Place of Consciousness… a moment where we were raised to Holy Ground. Our milestones give us a point in Time to Remember.
The Rattlesnake Tooth is also symbolized by the rainbow, an ethereal spectrum of color that marks the Sign of a Promise from the Above to the Below… a promise of a New Life.
Today we are drawn to see our Purpose and to reflect on the Choices we make. We are called to employ our Highest Consciousness to discern our reason for moving forward. This is a day for a Conviction of Purpose. We can commit ourselves to a purpose Higher than Our Own. We can sacrifice all our Power so that God can Intervene to ensure we Accomplish our Mission.
The Maya describe the Human as the “bearer of Time.” The Creator lives in the realm of timelessness and infinity – as everything that was, that is, and will ever be. With the Gift of Time, Human can create a Story of Love. Like any story, it doesn’t relate the minute-by-minute, but the major turning points of an experience. Today is a turning point in our story. We can mark it as a day we realized that for all the Dreams we can Imagine, we were destined for an even Higher Dream.
Divine Will is never the consolation prize. Only our Ego could think we could create something better than a Divine Creator. Something Higher was lain out before us as our inheritance. We have to surrender “our way” to receive it.
All we have to do is make a choice. Given permission by Free Will, an Almighty Power can Intervene. The Choice is all we need to do to fulfill our Divine Destiny. We will no long look Down to discern our direction from the Below. At the Highest Altar, we will look up for our Divine Direction.
To all my relations, may we mark the place where we are. May we see how our Consciousness of the Creator connects us to a Source of Unlimited Inspiration. May we look to the Beauty of our Function and the Purpose it was meant to fulfill. May we see the Authority of the Creator’s Intention, and the attention to detail in Our Creation. Divine Capabilities are at hand for us to use, in equal measure to every other. When we allow a Divine Creator to be in control, we are Guaranteed an Inheritance to See the Dawning of our own Light. May we Honor the Wind that carried our Spirits to the Highest Altar, and take a New Breath of Life, and Breath of Spirit.

A NEW COMMITMENT TO GRATITUDE:
I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year. The “21 days” begin and end on Jaguar/IX.
21-Days of Gratitude: Day 19
I’m grateful that there’s a reason I exist. I’m grateful that I was guaranteed that my life could hold an important meaning and purpose. I’m grateful for the ritual and ceremony that help us mark the occasions of our Consciousness of God, a Time and a Place where Human and God are both conscious of one another.

11 Road/EB (Cherokee, Rattlesnake Tooth/KANU’GA)
Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.
Road/EB: The bearer of time and conductor of destiny; also known as Human; these persons open the road and guide to the future groups, communities and individuals alike. Likable, obedient, dedicated hard workers and organizers, Road persons are fortunate in business and travel. Many become care takers of the poor, sick, or old people, where they may make personal sacrifices. Road is sometimes referred to as the sign of grass, which is the most bountiful of all life forms, but is also the most humble. Road persons are affectionate and emphatic; they are easily hurt but slow to anger. Holding in of negative emotions and unexpressed resentment can lead to illness, a poisoned opinion of others and a false bravado for this sun sign.
Cherokee, Rattlesnake Tooth/KANU’GA: Symbolized by a rainbow, the delicate display of electromagnetic rays of the SUN. Rattlesnake Tooth is the Natal day sign of Medicine, the Shaman, the Priest, the Healer, and the Sorcerer. Guardian of the Way, Keeper of the Keys of the secret Kingdom.
