MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 2 represents Duality, the Consciousness of our Self, apart from the Whole. On Tone 2 we consider a new Intention for Creation. This is a day of Discernment for the consideration of a Dream.
The Road/EB trecena is inspiring a new way to live applying the Power of Love. Tone 2 represents the 2nd hour of human’s “creation cycle” in the Light of Day. Our first experience was waking up from a Dream in Oneness with Divine Inspiration. The next question we ask our Self, “What will I get done today?” That question will inspire more questions.
When we consider, “What will I do today?” our unconscious thoughts follow the trail of our own Truth. The mind always refers to what is Known as it’s first source for the answer. It’s natural to expect the same results as the last time we tried. What would we do differently this time?
This is where Consciousness changes everything. Our success in the future doesn’t depend on our past mistakes. It only depends on whether we Love the Dream and whether the Meaning and Purpose holds a Divine Purpose for the Whole. We learned that our Power for Creation extends beyond Human power. In the 5th uinal, we’re raised to a Consciousness of Divine Sources of Power from the Creator and through the Love we share with one another.
Yesterday, we used our Imagination. Today we add our Intellect to divine a Reason for the Creation we will Love.
Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for Family and Home. We were led by Reed/BEN not so long ago to learn the Power of Family. Home is the place of our own Authority and our greatest realm of influence. Just think about how long we deal with our issues of family. We can Receive Love in an unlimited number of ways, but being Seen, Acknowledged, and Loved by our family is by Human Nature, the place we most want to Receive Love.
The people at Home know us the best. When they are incapable to offer us the Love we need, we feel the greatest loss. By the same virtue, the Love of Family can be our Shining Light. It’s not hard to see the advantages of being raised in a loving family. All the Truth of Love is Known by our Spirit. We Know by Divine Nature that we are much stronger together than we are apart.
So, what if we weren’t blessed with such an experience? What if we don’t have a family? The Creator’s Highest Intention is the Justice of Harmony and Equity. If we believe a Divine Provision was made for family, the Creator offers more than one way to Know the Blessing. We need to Choose a Family.
We learned that all the Love we want to Receive is a matter of Giving. If we don’t have a family, and we know we need one, we need to Give a Family to someone else. We need to claim someone as our family. Such a Divine Intention will always manifest a Miracle. The Creator intended for everything to be fair.
I was sad to see so many who lost family in the tornado in Alabama. One woman lost 10 family members all at once. My heart broke as I wondered at that experience. I wished I could invite her to be my family. As soon as the thought crossed my mind, it drew my Consciousness to thoughts of what Family is intended to be. Family is like the Dog’s pack. When someone is sick, the ideal family brings “chicken soup.” Family is meant to show up when you need an extra hand. Family members were intended to share their talents with each other… each doing for another. Family knows they are always welcome at the door. We acknowledge those we choose as family, as people with whom we will hold an affinity and can authentically share who we are.
That’s more than being a friend. That’s being a friend who is willing to share the “dark” and “light” of the journey. Family is a relationship the stands on an Intention to Love Eternally. “Family” is a Love that is Divine Enough to be remembered by future generations. Every Human dreams of such a family, whether they are conscious of it or not. We dream of the Divine Family that we could turn to for a Provision of Love. Within a Family, we remember how pieces and parts are One.
Reed/BEN is observed as a day to Bless and Repair the Home. In Guatemala, Jen says it’s a day for community service, when one checks in on their neighbors to see if they need a helping hand. In a Divine Family, people don’t need to wait for someone to call for help. A Divine Family volunteers before the job gets any bigger – because they know that sooner or later, they’ll be called to help. Family sees caring for each other as a responsibility. Family doesn’t expect to receive the accolades of recognition for something they have seen as a responsibility to one another. Family comes in and makes a swift job of things, and can just as quickly be out the door. Helping family doesn’t count as a charitable contribution, but as a responsibility of Love.
Imagine how different our lives would be if someone checked in every 13 days to help us get something done. Imagine how differently we’d see our Self, using our talent for a purpose beyond our Self. How much more would we believe in the Justice of our own Divine Provision?
Reed/BEN is illustrated by an altar. Above, the channels of Light are the hollow Reeds through which we find Communion in the Light of the Creator. Below are the thatched prayer mats where Human kneels in Humility. The Elders always associate the teachings of Reed with the “hollow bone.” To draw down the Full Light of Divine Discernment, the flesh must be removed from the bone. The Ego is our worldly “flesh” – defining choices that only serve our Self. In a prayer for Divine Will, the Ego is stripped away. We can Choose something Divine over a Choice for our Self. All we need is One Reason for the Sake of Love, for Love to be Multiplied to Abundance.
We might see that the Tzolk’in will guide the Road to our Destiny in a Divine Way. We were intended to make all our choices of Creation for Love. Our best thinking is done in a Conscious state of Humility and Love. We admit from the very beginning, that our own Dreams could only fall short of the Aspirations of a Divine Creator. We can remember the Truth that the Happiness that was intended to be our experience is beyond our Human imagination. Our Highest Aspiration is the Creator’s Dream for us.
Today our Wisest Choice will be made in Humility at an altar in Communion with the Creator. This is the One Place, like Home, where we exist in the Authority of a Divine Relationship. Whenever we proceed on an Intention that Divinely Aligned with the Creator’s Meaning and Purpose, we can only expect a Miracle.
Reed/BEN resides in the East, the direction of a Divine Communion where the Sun Rises. Holding the Element of Fire, Reed holds the Holy Fire of Transmutation – the Alchemy to Change us. Our thoughts will be turned to a Divine Dream as we conceive a way to create a Life that includes the Love of Family. To manifest the Dream of a Lifetime, we deserve to begin from the very center of Love.
To all my relations, as we consider an Intention for Spiritual Growth, may we turn to the altar for our Divine Discernment. In Humility, may we share the Dream we Love. May we share the authentic condition of our Heart. May we ask for help gathering our resources of Love. May we consider what Family means to us – beyond our experience, the Family we dreamed about. May we be Family for someone, to be there in the “dark” and the “light.” May we give thanks that the Creator will open the Highest Road to our Destiny. God can help us find a Reason to Create for Family, so the Whole will rejoice in the Manifestation of our Dream.
May we “Be Family” to manifest a Divine Family. May we look for family nearby, where we can check in regularly to offer a Divine Provision. It doesn’t matter if we don’t know how or where. We can ask in the Humility for an Intervention of Divine Will.
in lak’ech, i am another you

2 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
Reed/BEN: Reed persons are the spiritual essence, protectors and guiding light for family and home. They are competent speakers who will take up a cause. Very tough and analytical, Reeds endeavor to bring peace, harmony and order to all o their relations. Reeds are blessed with great skill at negotiations and consoling which are very often put to the test. Although Reeds need a lot of appreciation, may have marriage or business problems because of inflexible vies and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson for Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe. Bless or repair your house.
Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA: REED- Symbol-Reed is the Earth, reflection of the Star Chaga of Pollux. Reed made up the Magician Twins who led the journey to bring back to life the daughter of the Sun. The Casket is Gemini. Energy for Intellectual minds, creation, re-creation, new directions, breaking the ties that bind. A trailblazer and leader. From the East, direction of success and happiness, no matter what route is taken, always ending up in the Light.
