THE TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN: DAWN OF A NEW CREATION
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 3 holds the Intention of Movement. We bring a new vibration to Life by the Sound of our first step taken by Intention toward a Dream of Creation. Whether it is a physical movement or the dissemination of an idea, we will set the Tone and Frequency by the Truth of our Intention. Our Movement from the beginning will follow its own course to the end.
On Tone 3 we are inspired by one step that we know we can take. The Intention will create a path to follow. Each step will reveal the “next thing” that leads to the end. The Creation of Love is a Masterpiece of Time manifested from the dark and light. Monkey/CHUEN is the “Time Weaver” who knows that the Beauty in the end will be a tapestry of all the threads woven together. From the Wisdom of the Monkey, the Gift of Consciousness for the Discernment of Beauty, we can conceive the Truth that every thread has a meaning and purpose to see the Whole Beauty of our Life.
Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for Home and Family. Human Beings are drawn to the Light. Reed symbolizes the Light of an Altar. The glyph illustrates two channels of Light shining on an altar from Above. Below are the thatched prayer matts where Human kneels in Gratitude and Humility.
Reed/BEN represents our state of mind when we step into the role of a parent and our Heart is turned by Love to the Wisdom we will share. Through the miracle of reproduction, we manifest a new Consciousness of Compassionate Love. We know the children will follow what we do more than what we say. The Love between us shines a Guiding Light. Children will try on our shoes to imagine when they will be the same.
BEN guides us to walk in the Integrity of our Own Truth. It takes Humility to share the Truth, the Whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth. BEN’s shadow is demanding that everyone believes the same Truth. When we do, BEN reminds us that we’re leading with a “steel pipe” when we should use a “garden hose.” Our Intention to See the Light in one another is most important as it applies to the Children. We aren’t mean to prove that Our Truth is the Only Truth. Instead, we’re meant to share the Truth that we can Believe in our Self and our Own Discernment of a Higher Way to Love. It only makes Common Sense if we think about it. We dreamed of the Higher Ground that can be claimed by a New Generation. The only way is to guide them to their own Higher Truth.
BEN’s Guiding Light is the Faith to Believe in our own Truth within. BEN holds faith to believe in our own prayers on behalf of the Whole. The children will step into their own shoes, when they see the path we create to an altar. We are attracted to the Light. The Light of a Divine Human Being shines when we are kneeling before a Power greater than our Self. We are changed by the Power of our Prayers. We Remember Love at an altar. An altar always turns us around to begin again from Higher Ground. Children will see what we can’t see – a Higher state of mind and our Darkness turned to Light.
The glyph illustrates two channels of Light for a Being of Duality. We see the whole picture when two sets of eyes look in the same direction. The Reed guides us to be the “hollow bone.” The flesh of our Human ego must be burned away for the Light to pass through a Divine Channel of Communion between the Above and the Below. Only in Humility will we Share the Light that as the One in Harmony and Equity for the Whole.
Reed/BEN helps us to accept the Truth that Humans are not the Perfect Example of Love. Our Light only shines when we Remember. Our Whole Truth is that we will fail by Human limitation, yet we will always know a Love without Conditions at an altar in Communion with the Light Above.
BEN resides in the East, holding the Light of Divine Inspiration for a New Beginning. The Fall Equinox marked a New Season of Love. We look beyond the possibilities of a Life we knew before, to the Love that will be Created for the Future. In the Tzolk’in cycle of Human’s harvest of Light, we are imagining a New Life. Holding the Element of Fire, BEN will raise our Passion for the children of the future. Our guiding Light is the Faith to Believe in our own prayers, and to See, Acknowledge, and draw Light from the Wisdom of Innocence.
Reed/BEN shares the Love of Belonging as an Intention of Love. BEN is a day observed by a Blessing for the Home. On days marked by BEN, the Maya offer a helping hand to those in need. Charity beyond the sanctuary of our own Home shares a Gift of Belonging with the Whole.
To all my relations, may we see a Higher Way to shine the Light of Human Love, sharing the Truth of our limitations. May the shoes we leave to try on be the right size for a Human Being of limitations, so our children can grow beyond them in the future. May we see the Light in our own children’s eyes when we are amazed by what they Know and what they can do. Our Highest Gift is the Freedom of Consciousness – the Right to claim Truth that’s Higher than our own.
May we Move on an Intention to prove the Light of the Whole was given in Harmony and Equity. May our Highest intention be to See and Acknowledge the Light that is shared by the Whole. May we Acknowledge the Light in another Human Being as worthy to Remember and Belong. May we bend to the Truth that a new generation will wear bigger shoes than the ones we leave behind.
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.
