THE TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On Tone 3 a Dream comes to life by the Movement of Intention. We create Sound through the dissemination of communication or movement toward a Dream. Sound creates a new vibration. The Tone and Frequency of the vibration is created by the Intention, the Reason for Movement.
On Tone 2 we considered all the possibilities. On Tone 3, our Heart calls us to move on a Dream. We see a possibility within our grasp.
Reed/BEN offers a perspective for Movement that will set the Tone and Frequency of Divine Discernment. Reed is the guiding Light for Family and Home. BEN connects the Family Circle of Life.
The glyph illustrates an altar. Above are channels of Light, the portals for Divine Communion with the Creator. Below the altar are the two thatched prayer mats where Human kneels in Humility. There’s a place for both sides of Human where Truth can be known by the Mind of Reason and the Human Spirit’s Heart of Love. Both sides of Human Consciousness are Sacred to the Creator. The Authority of Creation intended Love to be known equally in a realm physicality and in the realm of Spirit.
BEN is moved on behalf of the children in the family. We are willing to stand in our Truth on behalf of a new generation. Children are the beginning of the Circle of Life. In the beginning, we were learning to take care of our self. Our consciousness was raised for the Application of Truth. We know the Truth of a Divine Way.
Reed/BEN holds very high expectations. With an reason to see the future, the Truth of the way is clearer. We see the long-range affects of our own choices. We wish we had heeded the Wisdom of our own discernment earlier in the game. The warning that comes with BEN is to lead with a “garden hose” and not a “steel pipe.” To share an “unbridled path” of Love, we can’t demand others to do everything our way. We have to humble our Self to the greater possibilities for a new generation. Our hope for the children is that they can manifest Higher Dreams… Higher than our way. God knows the Highest Ways. We only have to lead them to a destination to demonstrate the place where Truth is shared from Above.
When the end is only an Intention for our own happiness it’s harder to sacrifice the possibilities of the moment for a Dream in the future. When a family is created through a new generation, we see the living proof of a lifetime that will carry on. We have a vested interest in the future. A Supreme Creator designed a Time and Place for Human to live for someone else.
Reed/BEN is an example of Faith in Action. The Elders shared the Truth of Reed as the “hollow bone.” We are called to take up a Divine Cause in Humility. Children see us as “a god” for all our Wisdom. We have to bend in Humility to the Truth of One that is Greater. We have to prove the Truth of human limitations, to share a Divine Source of Power. They will know the Truth of Divine Love when they see the Light that dispels our darkness. Being perfect is not a good example of the Truth. The Answer to human limitations is the Whole Truth.
The Wisdom we hope to share can only be known by Experience. What we say will have little influence. Children, like all human beings, can only believe the Truth of Wisdom when they see the application. The Highest Application of a Divine Communion that we can share is the Truth that we are changed by the Love we find at an altar. They will see the Truth in us.
Reed/BEN moves us to Create a Family. God offers a Divine Possibility in Harmony and Equity with the Whole. In the world below, many grow up without a family. A Supreme Creator made a Divine Provision. A Home and a Family are intended to Multiply our Love to Abundance through a Circle of Life. If we didn’t have the family of our Dreams, we were given the Power to Create One.
If we didn’t have a Loving family, we know better than others what a family should be. We dreamed about it in the darkness. We imagined how much farther we could go if there had been someone who believed in our possibilities. The Sacred Exchange for the sacrifice is the Gift of Compassionate Love. We know what family could mean.
A human being who had it all from the beginning, can’t imagine the beauty we saw from the outside of their everyday life. Humans take for granted those things that are common. If we grew up in a happy loving family, we didn’t have the darkness to compare one experience to another. Those that know the darkness are born to create the Light.
On Reed/Ben the love of family extends beyond the home. The Maya observe Reed/BEN as a day to check in with neighbors to lend a helping hand. It’s a good example for the children.
Family love is different. We expect to be connected for the long term. People we “love like family” know they are welcome and know they belong. Family can make quick work for one another. It’s not a social call. “Family” sees what needs to be done and can go straight to the task. “Family” was intended as a collaboration. A Divine Family doesn’t judge one another on strengths and weaknesses, but applies Love by sharing what comes easy that may be harder for another.
Reed/BEN holds the Power to Create a Family and to share Belonging with someone else. Little common things mean a lot. Family means there is a door where we will be invited in. There’s a phone number we can call.
In this Time and Place there are so many children displaced without their family or a home. Even a home where love was broken is better than no family at all. Family ties bind us together no matter how far away we may be. We know we are connected. Family is a Circle where we are always remembered. God intended ALL to know the experience.
We CAN all know the experience when we Humble our Self to ask. We’ve grown to maturity. We know the Truth that to Receive is only a matter of Giving. Someone is waiting for a family. Someone has no one to turn to. Someone is still waiting to See and Know the blessing who doesn’t know a way.
We could do better to follow the Wisdom of our children. A little boy named Julian in my apartment complex adopted me as family. Julian first showed up with an offer to help when I emptied the trash. Then he started coming to my door to collect trash. It turned into a little business when I offered a financial exchange. Then he brought a friend along. They showed up together after school each day. They were a blessing beyond the trash, just to hear their thoughts of the day. Julian moved and Diante took over the business. Then, Diante brought a friend along. Then Diante moved and his friend Alex took over. Now it’s Alex and Ryan coming to my door. They have ALL been the light of my life in so many ways.
They give me a reason to be HERE. I love being a door they can come to. And, I love to offer something in return to reinforce their enterprising ways. They don’t come inside. I’m grateful they’ve been taught to be cautious of strangers. We don’t have to spend more than 2-3 minutes at the door to know the gift of family. I know there’s love between us. There’s a gift of artwork on my refrigerator to prove it. I’m vested with Love in their future possibilities. I don’t know if Julian, Diante, Alex or Ryan will remember my name, but I know they will remember the Time and Experience.
When I was 6 years old we lived next door to an elderly couple. I remember going over to visit. I don’t know what we talked about and I don’t remember their names. I only remember they were old and ate milk stirred up with pieces of bread and sugar. There must have been Love, because I still remember the experience.
To all my relations, may we give thanks for the Divine Intention of Family. May we know that God intended the provision for everyone. Family is a Gift that could mean everything to someone who still waits to know the blessing.
May we see how little it takes to let someone know they belong. I was Seen and Acknowledged as “family” the first time Julian offered to help me with the trash. Someone saw me and saw something they could share to make my life a little easier. Julian helped without an expectation of a return. Because he made the first step, he became “family.” I may never see Julian again, but I will always remember the family he created for me.
May we kneel at an altar and ask God to open our eyes to an opportunity. May we choose small and common ways to lend a hand, ways that don’t imply any expectations. May we choose to Grow a Family through small acts of kindness… seeing and acknowledging one another. May we invest Time in the future. With Time, Love grows and multiplies to abundance.
May we forgive our families. May we acknowledge the Truth that they wanted to Love. May we claim, for all their limitations, they taught us what family could be. May we be moved by Compassionate Love that Gives what we always wanted to Receive… a Circle of Life where our Love can carry on.
in lak’ech, i am another you

3 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)
Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.
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: 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.
