MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The Seed/KAN trecena leads us to the Realization of our own Powers of Creation. On Tone 7 we reach the Peak of our climb in an application of Human effort. Tone 7 holds the Promise of Balance between the Above and the Below.
The Great Law of creation passed down since the Mystery Schools of the Ancients is, “As Above, So Below.” It represents a Spiritual Principle that what is created in one realm of being will be balanced in all other realms. It upholds a Divine Truth that what we create in Spirit, through the realm of our Imagination, will be Created on Earth through this Balance.
The Intention of our climb has been to create a new world where a new Seed of our Self could live in Harmony and Equity in Love with the Whole. Tomorrow we enter the new world we’ve created on 8 Monkey/CHUEN (8 B’atz), the day the K’iche Maya celebrate as the beginning of a New Year.
7 Dog/OC completes our climb with a Balancing of Love from Above to the Below. Tone 7 is a day of Reflection that allows us to see everything that is, and everything that isn’t. The effort of our Human Intention is measured for a Sacred Exchange.
Dog/OC and Monkey/CHUEN reside together at the center of the Tzolk’in, reflecting the Central characteristics of our Divinity. Dog is an archetype of Unconditional Love, and the Monkey is a creator. Together they hold the Authority of the Power of Creation.
10-DAY PORTAL, DAY 5: Ether of Spirit
Portal Days magnify our supernatural experiences through a thinning of the veil to the realm of Spirit. We were blessed with a magnification of our Consciousness for the purpose of our Highest Creation, a reality of Happiness, Harmony, and Love. On 7 Dog/OC, a Portal magnify our Consciousness of the Power of Unconditional Love.
7 Dog/OC is a personal reckoning of Love magnified by a portal. At the top of the pyramid we are given a 360 view to see what we have accomplished, and what we have not. By the Creator’s Gift of Unconditional Love, every ending is a New Beginning. There will always be a new pyramid to climb and new horizons of Spiritual Growth. Within the new Seed of our Self, we will be born with a Purpose to carry on.
Dog/OC demonstrates the Divine Measure of Love, the Unconditional Love that was meant to be part of every Human’s experience of life on Earth. Today we can see what our experience of the world was meant to be, seen through the eyes of the Dog.
Dog wraps its “arms of Love” around the Whole of Creation. Dog basks in every Joy of Living, taking in the experience through all of its senses. Dog sees each day as a new opportunity to Love. Dog doesn’t discriminate between one experience of Love and Another. It Loves the experience of everything.
Dog is a pack animal, known as the Wolf on the Cherokee calendar. The Elders said that when Wolf becomes your totem, you will always be a member of the pack. Dog instinctively knows the Greatest Love of All is the Love we share with each other without condition. Dog instinctively takes on the duty of protecting the Whole, seeing the happiness of others as central to its own survival and happiness. Dog can help us see how our Human happiness depends on the Harmony and Equity of Love for those around us.
Dog/OC can help us see that every person, every living creation, every experience, every aspect of living deserves our Unconditional Love. 7 Dog/OC promises that when it comes to Love, our return is a measure of Divine Justice. The Creator’s gift to Human is a promise that all the Love we Give will be Multiplied to Abundance in the Above and the Below.
Loving Life itself is the greatest offering of Unconditional Love we can share with the Creator. In so doing, we Acknowledge the Beauty of the Balance in everything. Even darkness can be beautiful when there is a promise of Light.
7 Dog/OC can present some unexpected experiences. I always assume that days guided by Dog/OC are all marked as experiences of “Love and Light.” It’s hard to predict what experiences this day might bring. I made my commitment to the journal on 8 Monkey/CHUEN, so for me, 7 Dog/OC marks the completion of each 260-day commitment. The first round was the hardest of all, and yet it will always be remembered as the most transformational 260-days of my life. May enduring Faith in the future is all built on those first 260 days. It was the first time I remember seeing the Proof of my own Transformation, the proof that I could change my life, and the proof that with each day forward I would continue to grow in my own Consciousness of Love.
7 Dog/OC was the most difficult day of all. Of all the days I worried about whether I would have something meaningful to share, this last day of my first round I spent well into the night in an effort that barely produced two paragraphs of Love. The only discernment of the energy I could make was, “Can you even Love this?”
When it comes to a reckoning of Unconditional Love, Human will always come up short in the comparison between the Above and the Below. We could see this in the Divine Light that there will never be an end to the Unconditional Love we could Create. We could never reach the end of all the Love there is to experience. As we see how our own effort falls short of a Divine Intention of Love, we are given our Meaning and Purpose to carry on.
Dog is a loyal companion. Its Mission of Love carries on for every Human on Earth. Dog is said to always be with us, even beyond death. The Milky Way was called “the place the dogs ran,” reflecting Dog’s promise to stay by our side, even as we make our final journey back to the stars.
Holding Dog’s perspective, our Happiness would not be complete until all of Humanity knows this experience of Unconditional Love. There’s no way for us to create the world of Love we dream about, unless all of us exist together in Harmony and Equity. How could we be happy with our own creation, if everyone around us was suffering?
7 Dog/OC offers a Higher View of the Creator’s Unconditional Love. As broken vessels of Love, Human is Sacred to the Creator for every Divine Attempt to Love as the Creator Loves. In exchange for the sacrifice of being Human, the Creator promised to Intervene and multiply our Love by a Divine Effort equal to our Human effort. Our Power to Love is multiplied exponentially by Divine Intervention.
As we measure ourselves as Broken, the Creator makes a Divine Assessment. Today we have completed our Highest Climb of Love as we were capable of now as Human. Today we are seen in the Purity of our own Intention. Our Human failures are swept away as the Creator only sees the Love we Intended to give. The Unconditional Love we hoped to give is all that matters to the Creator. Our feelings of brokenness are the proof that we wanted to give more. The “more” we wanted to Give is what the Creator will Balance between the Above and the Below.
Today is the eve of a Divine Initiation of Love. Our own Human failures are covered by a robe of white. Our Human Love is perfected by the Purity of our Intention. A new Seed of our Self will be consecrated for the Fruit of a new Harvest of Human transformation toward our Divine Destiny as Creators of Unconditional Love.
Our Human transformation can be seen as the Truth of Common Sense. We would never create anything without an Intention to Create. Without the Intention to Love, we would define our experiences of Love as a matter of fate or pure luck. We would have nothing to do with it at all. All we have to do to manifest the creation is to intentionally move toward it one day at a time. Through Intention we hold the Power. Without our own Intention to Love, we ARE subject to fate or luck as the world might present it. Through Intention we hold a guarantee of Love.
To all my relations, may we make our own assessment of our Human capacity for Love. May we clearly see how we are limited in our own ability to carry it out. May we consider the Creator’s promise of Love and Know from our own experience that it could only be realized through the help of Divine Intervention. May we see the Love of a Divine Parent, who gives us the full credit for giving the Love we were capable to Give, a Creator who sees how much more we hoped we could give. May we experience our Highest Truth of Unconditional Love, that in the eyes of the Creator we have given more than enough to prove our Intention of Love. May we Know we offered a Sacred Exchange that is worthy of Divine Justice, because all our Love was a Choice of our own Free Will. We chose to give our Love as the Creator Loves, without any condition. In the choice we are transformed by the Wisdom of our own experience as we see that such Love is only possible by a Divine Creator.

7 Dog/OC (Cherokee, Wolf/KANA’TI)
