THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN, A GUIDING LIGHT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The 4th Tone of Creation is Stability. Tone 4 is compared to the cube, a dimension defined by borders and parameters. Whenever we choose to move forward on an Intention to create, our next inherent thoughts are to get a grasp on the circumstances. If we’re Wise, we look at a map before we take any journey. We can choose the shortest way, or we can take the scenic route. On Tone 4 we establish the “rules of the game.”
On a journey of Divine Evolution, we can choose a course for our thoughts in advance. We can build a foundation as our own pillars of Faith to stand when we face the Unknown. To Move to a Higher State of Consciousness, we choose thoughts that will lead to the desired ending. In a world below, we move by taking one step after another. Above, our Spirit Rises one Divine thought at a time that we can experience and claim as the Truth. The Higher our Truth, the more Divine are the possibilities. We know where Human thoughts can lead. And, we can Remember, that Divine thoughts always lead Faith to Believing.
Wisdom/CIB connects us to the Wisdom of the Ages. CIB represents the Collective Wisdom of Humanity, and our own Wisdom of Experience. CIB reminds us that the past is an archaeological treasure for Wisdom that leads a Divine Way. CIB resides in the South, the direction of our Relationships with one another and the Natural World. CIB guides us to the Wisdom of Right Relationship.
CIB shares the “Key to the Kingdom” as Forgiveness. We can only see the Whole Truth by looking beyond the circumstances of Time. We are all on our own path and in our own back and forth movement between the darkness and the Light of Truth our Heart can Believe. As we look ahead, we might consider the Wisdom of our own past. There’s Times when we Feel the Light of Truth and Times when we Feel there’s no hope in sight. If we apply the Wisdom of our own Truth, sometimes we are Brighter than others. The Truth is in our Intention to be. Human will always express the Truth of our limitations, where our Faith turns to Fear.
Eagle/MEN shared the Vision to See the Light in our Future and the direct course from point A to point B. The Owl expands our Vision with the Gift to see through the darkness. Wisdom/CIB sees the darkness on the way to the Unknown. We can plan now for the Human limitation of forgetting. Our Faith is challenged the farther we turn from the way Human sees to the way our Spirit Believes. Human isn’t satisfied until we know all the answers, even before we know the questions. The first time we run into an unexpected Truth, we can forget. We need a plan to get through it. CIB’s strategy is to turn to the Wisdom of the Past to keep moving forward.
4 Wisdom/CIB shares the Solid Ground of Truth. The Truth we Believe must go through the processing of Duality. We can conceive the Truth from pure inspiration, though it takes a personal experience to raise it to its Highest Meaning and Purpose. CIB is the Master Class that guides the way of a Student. We are ready to learn the Highest Truth, when we show up with a perspective that we don’t “already know everything.” We don’t like it, yet how else could we begin something brand new? We have to forgive the Time of not-knowing to keep moving on. It will only make sense, if we’re wise enough to give it some thought.
CIB holds the Element of Earth that represents a tangible experience in the world below. Human believes in the Truth of our past experience. Through an Application of Wisdom, we could turn to see the Truth we already believe to see how it could be applied to our Unknown Future. We have something to go on. We weren’t left in the dark. The Cherokee nahaul is the Owl, the “mystic ferryman who holds a torch aloft to guide a journey to the other side.” A Celestial Ferryman is Wisdom written in ancient traditions around the world. The Egyptian hieroglyphs illustrate the name of the ferryman as “one that clearly sees what is behind” or like the Owl, “its head is turned to the back.”
We can cross the divide of every Unknown with the Light we hold within. When we Forgive, we can accept the Truth of now and turn to our Wisdom. Until we Forgive, we’ll just waste time thinking “this shouldn’t be.” We forget what WILL be and what CAN be, when we “get over it” and look for the next Wise thing to do.
CIB connects us to the Wisdom of a Divine Way forward. The “angel on our shoulder” is CIB. Sometimes we don’t like it and we won’t listen if it doesn’t fit into Human’s grand plan for the moment. Wisdom/CIB can bring us into Right Relationship with the Light. Today, it finally makes sense. Has YOUR “better angel” EVER steered you in a WRONG direction? Those born CIB are said to take up causes on behalf of those who can’t fend for themselves, often caretakers of the sick and elderly. Our “better angels” are always with us to serve on behalf of the Whole – everything that’s been recorded as the Truth, Above and Below. Today we conceive the Divine value of the archaeological treasures of Time.
The Student, ready to learn, pays attention in class. The Ascended Masters and the Whole Truth learned by our blood, sweat and tears, is an Akashic Record – everything a Divine Creator wanted to Experience the Truth of Creation. Our “Conscious” always has our best interests at heart. If we can forgive our self, it won’t matter which way we Choose to learn our lessons. The One Truth that upholds all Divine Truth is the Creator’s Unconditional Love.
The Alpha and Omega represent a Truth that stands from the beginning to the end. My most foolish choices have always been times when I was convinced, I was the exception to the rule. “Sure, some choices are wiser than others, and sometimes those choices lead to no good end, only THIS time is different.” (That’s Human, finding a reason why Wisdom doesn’t matter, when there’s something it wants Right Now.) The Truth is always the Truth. It’s only a matter of Time before the Whole Truth is Seen. And, we DO see it through 20/20 hindsight.
We’ve already claimed we can’t see the WHOLE Truth at the end. How would we know that “what’s happening now” doesn’t fit into the picture? If we can see what makes no sense, we’ll also remember what’s True.
Love will always be the Greatest Power in the world, and Love will always shine the Light of a Divine Way through. Love ALWAYS creates its own Divine Justice in the end. We think Human needs to enforce Divine Justice. But how could we without destroying the Light of our own Love. As soon as we declare that someone else deserves an unhappy end, we’ve lost our Divine Train of Thought. There’s no good ending if we choose to follow that path. We KNOW it. It’s pointless, really, when we have an Intention of Love, because it diminishes our own Light of Love. And, it doesn’t help the climb we make toward the Higher Truth of Love.
Looking over the experience of recent times, there’s been so many times when I was SURE that now THIS TRUTH revealed could be seen by the Whole. Once they know this, we’ll all be in agreement again. Yet, time and time again, the mounting evidence of my own “truth” doesn’t mean a thing to anyone who holds a different perspective. Hate is a compelling Human journey, because it mounts the evidence of “I’m right.” Hate builds a foundation of thoughts that grows a mountain of injustice, blaming outward circumstances for a reality that we created within. The only way to Forgive is to Face the Truth that we’re all Human. When we can only see what others have done wrong, we totally forget to look at our Self. We’ve reached our own limits many times. (Only we had a better reason.) That’s how our thoughts will go back and forth until we Forgive, because Forgiveness acknowledges the Truth of the Whole.
The strategy of the Jaguar is to see the Intention of Spirit that is reaching for Love – lost, believing, the only way to know it is to be “right.” Right or Wrong has nothing to do with an Intention to Love. We might remember an old blanket we carried from childhood, tattered and worn. We will Love the well-worn Truth when we give it a chance. We are the LIVING with the POWER to carry Truth to Higher Ground on behalf of the Whole.
The glyph illustrates the Human mind in its highest state of Consciousness, emanating the Light of Love and the Wisdom of Forgiveness. There is Joy waiting in every moment when we hold the Wisdom to Forgive. Forgiveness helps us to see through the Darkness, like the Owl, to the Truth of Time. When we find our self in a place where there’s no love to be seen all around, we can use the Eyes of Wisdom to stand on a Truth that the Light is still shining to be seen in another Place and Time.
CIB will help us complete the Eagle’s flight to our Divine Future. If we hold the Wisdom in advance, we won’t be surprised when the Wind carries us through the fog or a thundercloud. The journey reminds me of a major surgery I went through in my 30’s. I was a single-parent of two children 2 and 4. I had to get back to work as their sole means of support. One of aspects of recovering from major surgery is “blood pooling.” I remember standing up from my desk to walk across the office and everything would “go black.” I remembered how I would just keep walking in the dark, believing it would all clear up in a moment.
Eagle/MEN shared a Vision of our Future, just a glimpse without any of the details… just enough to believe in the end, without spoiling the Joy of the Miracle. We have to ALLOW it to be okay that we can’t see it all. As long as we marked it with an “X” we are focused on the Divine End. When the illusions of the world cloud our vision, we’ll Remember we saw a Light and it was the Truth within our grasp.
Wisdom/CIB can lead us to the Unseen Truth that lies within. We were created to become a Divine Human Being. Our End is the Wisdom of Divine Truth and all the Mysteries of Creation. It would be impossible to define what a mystery would be, when the surprise is held under the Authority of Divine Time. CIB shares the Wisdom that we Know, and we will See the Divine Gifts of Spirit that lie ahead. You may have an “idea of an idea” – like a flashing beacon, yet you still can’t make out the details. There’s two roads of thought you could take. 1) Human reason – there’s truth unknown, so I can’t know it. OR, 2) There’s a light of Truth that will get brighter the farther I go. To know the Unknown, we can Accept the darkness as the journey on our way to Knowing. We have to Forgive the Time we must bear, to claim it ALL as part of our Highest Consciousness of Knowing a Divine Truth – a Truth we will Feel by the Wisdom of our own experience.
To all my relations, may we Forgive the ones “who told us so.” We can tell the difference between Wise Counsel and personal judgement. May we believe in a Wise Old Owl that sits on our shoulder, who can see through all the darkness by the Wisdom of Experience. May we give thanks that every “hard road” manifests the Truth we Believe, and the Collective Wisdom of Humanity is the record a Supreme Creator intended as the Divine Witness of Time shared from the darkness.
May we use the Gifts of Spiritual Vision to see beyond our own darkness. May we believe that even the Spark of a Divine Idea will be fanned into flames by Legions of Love in the realm of Spirit, who have “been there, and done that.” May we claim the Faith in all of Humanity and the Dream we share for Love – that the Wisdom that speaks from our shoulder, ALWAYS leads to Truth that upholds the Creator’s Unconditional Love in the end. When we can’t see the way, may we remember “this is how the Unknown looks” before can see the whole picture. It’s normal, and the human limitation won’t mean a thing when we follow the Truth that guides us from within.
May give thanks that a Supreme Creator intended us to become the Divine Genius of Love, as One the Whole Reflection of the Brightest Light of Illumination. We were meant to Know, and the WHOLE Truth is recorded by every experience along the way. Obstacles will Divinely turn us to a Higher Way. May we have the Wisdom to say “thank you” for the experience, instead of claiming we were doing just fine by our Self.
May we give thanks that a Speck, a Glimpse, a fleeting thought of Divine Light, and even the Dream we Loved and then forget as soon as we raise our head from the pillow – is Light enough for a Spark to Remember an “X” and Know the Way. All we have to do is Ask, and Listen for the Truth of Answered Prayers that we ALREADY Know.
in lak’ech, I am another you

4 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valiant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons. A good day to sit on a rock.
Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’ O’JJ: Symbol is the Owl is Arcturus, the brightest Star in the Constellation Bootes. The Cherokee Bear constellation (Ursa Major) includes the Big Dipper plus four stars in Bootes. Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear. Energy for deep thinkers, strong-willed, rigid convictions, bold and authoritative. Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.
