MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On Tone 5 we receive the Empowerment we need to complete this new climb of Spiritual Growth. Tone 5 is the center of the cube, the point from which all ways and means are organized and made ready for their application.
On Tone 5 we realize the Power that will carry us through. We will see that we are in possession of the Greatest Power we could ever hope to hold.
Dog/OC resides in the Center of the Tzolk’in, side-by-side with Monkey/CHUEN. Together they represent the Powers that are Central to a Divine Creator of everything. The Dog holds the Power of Unconditional Love. The Monkey holds the Power of Creation. Their Divine Affinity of Power used together represents the Power to Create the most valuable currency there is in the Creation of Unconditional Love.
Dog/OC is bringing Home one of its gifts of Love. It may only be a bone, but something in the gift will be different this time. This time we’ll recognize that dirty chewed up slimy bone as a bright and shiny gift of Love. That was the Offering we volunteered for, to look hard enough to see the Love in everything. We’ll see the Sacred Exchange for the Offering – new eyes, and Dogs senses to even Smell the Love of everything.
Dog resides in the North will the Wisdom of Love as we Imagined it and Experienced it in our Innocence. We assumed the same Love we knew at home was everywhere. We also assumed the the Love we couldn’t find there, wouldn’t be found anywhere else either. God made a provision for those who waited the longest so the greatest Blessing offered to Humanity could never be anything but Equal. In every Loss of Love where we didn’t have a choice, or couldn’t see the choice, we hold the Promise of Love that we are going to receive.
Each one has our own Time and Place for the Balance. Divine Children like things their own way. Maybe some choose to spread it all out over a lifetime. Maybe some choose to eat the dessert first. (I’m standing on a Promise that I chose to save the Best for Last. That’s a Leap of Faith that I’m asking for the Divine Intervention to Believe… especially if anything is possible.)
We may be surprised at our Self when someone brings their broken Love of blame and injustice… and all we CAN see is the suffering for love that forced the broken gift out of the shadows and into the Light where we could see it.Today we will Know the Power of Love that Healed Us, that healed Human emotions so we could clearly discern Love that is always there through our own Heart. Dog can offer the Power to See Love for the Power that it really holds to manifest an Equal experience of Harmony and Happiness. The Miracle was already paid forward by the Creator through the Sacred Right of Choice.
I believe the Sacred Right of Choice was given along with a Divine Provision… TIME to make the Choice. “Time and Place. Time and Place.” Ian Lungold said that so many times, there must be Magic there for us to see. Now I wonder if the Most Divine Time is that split second of Time and Place we are given to MAKE a Divine Choice.
Between every experience we share with each other, and between every experience we encounter in the world we are given a Split-Second of Time for a Choice. I see it in babies learning to walk – the ones that turn to Mom and Dad to see whether they should cry when they just fell down. If Choice is Sacred, the Creator WOULD have given us Time to choose it. It can be a very small moment. But, with Consciousness of our thoughts, we’ll be able to See the Time and Grasp the opportunity to Love. We are given TIME to APPLY the Greatest Power we were given.
By claiming this TIME exists, we could prepare in advance for the opportunity… to See it, so we can Choose it. We could ask for Divine Intervention that as we practice, we’ll choose Love automatically. We’ll have so much positive reinforcement from the Choice of Love that we make, it will cease to make good sense to choose anything else.
Choosing Unconditional Love, we’ll hold the Power to complete any climb through the Unknown, knowing One Variable that will never change – the Love we will discover through the experience and the realization that there was always Time for Love included with every one.
Dog/OC shows us what the Rewards of such Love will be. Dog demonstrates one who sees Love everywhere. The ONLY reason Dog isn’t happy is when someone in the pack isn’t getting their fair share. Dog loves the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of the WHOLE beauty of Mother Earth. Dog KNOWS the heart strings that connect a communion of Love. Dog KNOWS that no matter what it drags home, we’ll KNOW that Dog thought it was bringing a gift of Love. We won’t ever question the reason it was delivered.
So, can we see the Love brought to us when someone needed it enough and saw enough Love in us to ALLOW us to see their breakdown. Humans miss so many opportunities for Love when we hold all the suffering inside. No one knows what we’re really going through. We don’t give them a chance to see where they could be stepping on our toes.
That’s another vote for loyalty to one another. Even when we share a judgement of someone else that’s not present for the conversation, and what a shame THEIR downfall is, couldn’t we be sharing the very same shame the one in front of us is so fearfully covering up? We have to love all of us for ALL the suffering that’s hidden inside. We might see how a breakdown offers a new opportunity for relationship – when we find out WHY or HOW someone else is suffering.
(Come to think about it, I don’t think anyone has ever shared judgement of another that I didn’t see my own sins on their list.) We probably hurt one another the most when we relate those kind of thoughts about anyone. The darker injustice we share, may only make us reflect on our own deepest darkness secret of failure… even if it was a thought we never acted on. It could be a thought we allowed to cross our own mind, and find it all the harder to Love our Self. (Our Spirit is subject to the experience of our thoughts as if they were real. The thoughts that hurt our Spirit are the ones we grasp or indulge as our own. We didn’t choose the Time wisely, and chose them as our own instead of allowing their ties to dissolve so they could keep on floating by. There will be unlimited opportunity to choose other Divine thoughts.)
Dog instinctively Knows. Dog holds the Highest Expectations of Love. It doesn’t turn away from Love that’s given in any form. When someone else turns it away, it leaves the Bone that proves a Choice to Love is already made on the other side – a Choice given a little more time for the other to make it too in their own Divine Time and Place. They will be given a Divine Time and Place for their choice too. Once they see the opportunity to Choose, they’ll begin to see the Choice can be made faster in the future.
Maybe we are all working toward that Divine Time and Place of an automatic choice that could last for an eternity. Dog is a symbol of Loyalty. The Dog and the Wolf are both totems that the Elders say, once you have connected to them, you are Forever a Member of the Pack. The Milky Way was called the “place the dogs ran” because the Dog would stay by our side even beyond death to share our journey back to the Stars.
We can all be happy as a Dog, living a “dog’s life,” when we discover the opportunity of our own Divine Moment to Choose Love that is always offered to us without any conditions. No matter what Time and Place it shows up, its Healing and Happiness can last for a lifetime. We’ll even have all the Love that we didn’t see the first time around. We’ll smell the trail of Love back to every Sacred Exchange we couldn’t see before.
To all my relations, may we Pray for a Divine Intervention of Love to awaken all our Senses. May our antennae of Love be tuned into the frequency so we’ll Know all the Love that exists within the parameters to receive a Hot Spark of Love directly from our Heart. May we generate all the Love we can all the time from Mother Earth. May the Love she automatically gives to us, create an automatic signal of Love when we’re Loving Her. We could generate a beacon of Love just by rolling in the grass or taking in the view of her Beauty. May we know that every Human “mistake” we were willing to roll around in, just made our own signal stronger. May we see how fun it could be, being Divine Children that the Divine One in Charge from above, WANTED to play hard enough to get dirty. The messes human makes of Love wouldn’t matter at all, because Love is Love, and LOVE is ALL of it… in both the darkness and the light. We all thought we were a mess. But when we came home dirty, the fun we had and the Love we knew is shining in our eyes as we lay our dirty bones down.
I pray for a Divine Intervention for all of us. I pray for Believing that if we bundled all our sorrows, we would only see a slice of How Much Love is still waiting for us to Know. I pray that our Divine Olfactory receives the Scent of Love strong enough to bring us to all our Senses of Love, and Grasp the Time to make the Choice of the Trail of thoughts Love will lead us on.
in lak’ech, i am another you

5 Dog/OC (Cherokee, Wolf/KANA’TI)
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural net workers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
Dog/OC: Courageous, loyal and warm-hearted, very alert and valiant, people born of Dog are respected for their sense of justice and their protection. People born of the sun sign Dog are very sensual and know how to enjoy life. Playfulness and a good understanding of the basic human nature lead to prosperity for Dog. Dogs are good team players who love to travel and have a keen sense of their position in society. Dogs are ambitious and will take opportunities when they offer themselves, including infidelities. Dog persons share the nature of coyotes, spies, wolves and lawyers.
Cherokee, Wolf/KANA’TI: Wolf is symbolized by Sirius (Dog star) and Antares, one or the other always visible but never at the same time. Wolf is our brother, shares our very roots. All dogs are domesticated wolves, companionship and guidance. Wolves are a connecting link between the worlds; ones who inspire loyalty, diplomacy and sense of humor with unlimited potential. Wolf is the Day Sign of teachers, healers, pathfinders and transformers; sharp as obsidian, gentle as a lamb.
