MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The Monkey/CHUEN trecena is inspiring us to Create our own Reality. Through the Intervention of a Divine Agency, we’ve grown to Maturity. We hold a new Consciousness of our own Possibilities. Monkey/CHUEN will inspire us to carry it out.
On Tone 2 we are offered the Choice. Tone 2 reflects the aspect of Duality. Our experience as Human Beings is drawn by comparison between one thing and another. There are two sides to our Self. There is the One that is the Whole of everything and Humanity is the Two – all the pieces and parts of the One Divine Creation. Just as Human makes its journey on Two Legs, we define the experience two ways – as Human Being of physicality, and a Spiritual Being of Divine Consciousness.
Road/EB is the Day Sign of Human and the Road to our Destiny. The Road is also a symbol of the Tzolk’in, and the Divine Path we were given to follow, the path that’s led by Love. Our Destiny depends on the Choice we Make. We can go on making choices for Human Being’s happiness in the world, or we can make choices on behalf of a Spiritual Being who only seeks Love.
Our Highest Choice is based on Faith in something we can’t actually see. We’ll have to Believe in a Divine Love to carry it out. To make the Choice we have to see there’s a Choice. On 2 Road/EB we see the Choice is ours to make.
The Road/EB glyph illustrates our Road of Destiny on the head of a Human. On either side of the Road are the Milestones that mark our Progress.
EB resides in the South, the direction of Relationship. The Road to our Human Destiny is the path we all share, the Journey we were Created for. Our common experience is a journey into the Unknown… to draw forth a Creation from our own Dreams. We have to believe in a Divine Course that would lead us from Point A to our Dreamed of Point B. Road/EB encourages us to see a Divine Guidance system of Love will take us there. Our Spirit already Knows the way.
The Cherokee Day Sign is the Rattlesnake Tooth, an implement of Spiritual Medicine. The shaman uses the Rattlesnake Tooth to break the skin where the medicine will be applied. It left a mark of a Spiritual Healing, and a Time and Place to Remember. Today we are offered the Milestone of seeing the Road that will lead to our destiny. We see it clear enough to know, it is only a matter of choosing it.
Last night as I was going to sleep I was thinking how most of the time I spend in my bedroom is in the dark. Most of the time spent in my bedroom is whatever time it takes to choose what I will wear in the morning. I thought of how much of the time I spend there where I didn’t see anything in the dark. I considered the possibility of creating another bedroom in the dark. As long as I couldn’t see it, it could be anything. I thought how much money we might save, if we could pull this off. We could live in a palace if we wanted to for a few minutes every night when we went to bed. How the place is furnished would be all left to our imagination. I didn’t crystallize an image, but I crystallized the Choice as a Possibility.
When I woke up this morning I can only define a state of mind that felt like everything we want, all the Love and Happiness we hope to create, comes down to a Choice to Create it. It felt different. I think I always know the choices that will lead to happiness. The problem is, I saw the Choice, yet I felt something was lacking in me – the WILL to Choose it.
I realized that Knowing what I want and Knowing how to accomplish it are the least of my problems. The missing piece is How I get myself to do it.
Road/EB is about the Time of our Life. A calendar reveals that every Hour of Human’s Life was given for a Divine Purpose. Human struggles with Time. We hate to wait. It seems easy to imagine that we could wait forever. We’re like children in the backseat – “Are we there yet?”
It takes Time to Grow to Maturity. It took time to See and Acknowledge that Love is a Power in us. It takes time to Believe the things we can’t see. Today marks a Milestone of a new beginning, Seeing and Believing. I woke up with the Vision of ALL the Dreams that I know are possible in my life. I woke up believing it was as simple as a choice.
We think we “can’t” when Miracles don’t happen on our own Time Table. We’re not sure if we’ll ever actually arrive. We’re sure it’s all a matter of our own Human limitations. If we were “enough” we’d already be there.
Road/EB reminds us that Time is Divine. Time is the provision to make our way from Point A to Point B. A Creator that wanted us to reach our Divine Destiny, offered ALL Time broken apart into the individual experiences of the Moment. Time would mark the Milestones that prove where we’ve been, and prove the progress we’ve made. We are never standing still. We are changed by every experience of living.
Road/EB can help us Feel the Truth that every Time has a very Divine Purpose. We learn the Truth we need to know, when we need to know it. A path was already created for the Truths we would learn one step at a time. We need Time to Know it.
Now is our Perfect Time and Place for creating the world of our Dreams. All the conditions are right. This was the Time that was intended for the purpose. We’ll know it, because we Feel the Choice is Possible to Make. What we conceive as Truth has been changed by a Divine Inspiration. By Divine Intervention we will Know this is our Time to Create.
We are entering the reproduction phase of our Human Experience of Creation. Human doesn’t have the Authority to choose this time for our Self. Reproduction is not a possibility, until we’ve Grown to Maturity. Children want to do grown up things long before they are prepared to do so. We might consider that all this time that we thought we weren’t enough, wasn’t a matter of being enough. We just needed a little more Time to be Ready. That was what I felt this morning – that I was ready. I knew there was a way, and I knew I was enough to choose it. Nothing appears any clearer than it did before, except that Now is the Time. Now is the Time when we Can. Monkey intends to help us create our Masterpiece.
In the Beginning, the Creator was all that ever was or could be. A Supreme Creator held every possibility of Being. The Creator is defined by a Choice to Create. Without us, there is no one to See or Acknowledge what exists outside the Mind of God. God was defined by Human in the Choice to Create us. We were given a lifetime to Create whatever we wanted to be. Through a Choice to live for the Creator’s Meaning and Purpose, our own Divine Will, we have already made the Choice that guarantees our Dreams of Happiness will come true. We sacrificed our Human Way for a Divine Way. It takes Divine Time. The Meaning and Purpose of every experience is making it possible for Human to Choose.
Today we can be marked by a Feeling. Through our Relationships, we could see the Truth that Dreams take Time. Those the world considered genius still needed Time. They didn’t do everything right the first time. The REAL geniuses failed over and over again, and learned something new every time. They didn’t see failure as a sign of “I can’t.” Their response to failure was, “There must be another way.”
Tone 2 is a day when we are separated from the Whole to know a Truth about our self. We can feel a little vulnerable on Tone 2, wishing we were One – just as good, just as capable, just as Divine as everyone else. We wish our way were as easy as someone else’s seems to be. We are challenge to see that our Way IS Divine. We’ll Know when we finally try it. As soon as we break out of the lines that were drawn before, will our Creation be the Authentic Expression of our Self. Our Choice on Tone 2, is to throw Human Reasoning to the Wind, and Believe the One who created the Path clearly marked it all the way to our Destination.
To all my relations, may we celebrate our own Freedom to Choose. May we Know that a Divine Creator also extends the Power to Choose. May we give thanks that Time is Divinely held in the Creator’s Hands. The Creator knows when we are ready to manifest our Highest Possibility of Love. May we know the Creator was waiting too for the Time and Place that we would Know the Choice was ours to make. May we Give Thanks that the Creator intended a Place for us to Belong, along with the Time to Arrive at the Truth that our Experience of Love and Happiness is the Supreme Creator’s Divine Will. May we Know that we were always Enough. We were just waiting for the Creator’s Divine Time.
May we mark a Milestone so we’ll remember where we started and see how far we can go.
in lak’ech, i am another you

A 21-DAY CEREMONY OF GRATITUDE:
“21-Days of Gratitude” was the ceremony that marked the beginning of this Journal. 21 Days led to 260-days of the Tzolk’in round. In the 7th uinal we exist in the Perfect Balance. Each of the 20 Day Signs in the uinal is in position to reflect their way of Balance. Each one will offer a Divine Perspective from the all-in-one of who we are. I’m beginning 21 days starting today, under Sun/AHAU that will be a guiding light that completes the Whole of Understanding for each perspective of our Truth we can Know about our Self. At the End of 21 days, we’ll arrive at 10 Sun/AHAU, and a manifestation of our own Light of Truth.
Day 13 of 21 Days:
I’m grateful for moments of Truth.
TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Monkey/CHUEN trecena.
2 Road/EB (Cherokee, Rattlesnake Tooth/KANU’GA)
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.
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.
