THE TRECENA OF STAR/LAMAT: GATHERING THE LIGHT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 6 raises us to the Peak Energy of Flow. Momentum is created by a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement. We chose a Divine Direction for the thoughts we would follow. Through the Intention to Create Love we manifested a Divine Reason for our Life and the Creator marked the Time and Place we could Remember. We kept turning back when we couldn’t see beyond the darkness to see the Light at the Beginning.
We are Empowered by the Consciousness of Flow in our process of Creation. As the “heavy lifting” of creation begins, the Wisdom of the experience leads a Higher Way. Our Common Thought in the 6th Hour is a “better way.” We assign an order and chronology to Creation. We might see how our thoughts are always guiding us to the way of greatest abundance in the end.
Tone 6 is the Peak Energy of Faith in a Higher End than we’ve imagined. We had one idea of Truth at the end when we surveyed the field. We made a reasonable discernment of what we could accomplish. We added up all the steps it would take to go the distance. The energy of Tone 6 is compared to a “great athlete.” We see an Unknown Possibility we didn’t see before. We believe something greater than we did before. Now the “X” that marked the spot is closer than we thought. We could sail right by the end we imagined. On Tone 6 we jump in. We join the Human Race to see how Far we can really go. Faith is been raised to believe in something Greater than the Dream we first imagined.
Our Truth was good enough. WE were capable of something more than we imagined. With that One Truth we can believe Greater things about the Gift of the Scion, and the Ways of Truth and Light.
Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for family and home on behalf of the children. Reed/BEN guides us to See and Acknowledge the influence we hold when we are the leader of a family or circle of belonging. The children will always look up to our example and imagine wearing our shoes. The Children are inclined to believe that parents are the Authority of Wisdom.
The Reed represents the Channel through which we hold the Divine Communion of Spirit. The Elders say that Reed represents the “hollow bone.” To see the Truth of the Light, all the human flesh must be burned away. We have to let go of all the “human reasons” we give Love – to earn Love back, for a “Divine Reason” – to Pay Love Forward. We are never a good example when we’re trying to demonstrate how great we are. Teaching the children how great we are isn’t the Truth and it serves no good meaning and purpose. They need to know the Truth about themselves.
The Divine Meaning and purpose for family was to Multiply to Abundance the Wisdom we could know together. Reed/BEN is that frame of mind that holds the Highest Expectations for the Ones we Love. Reed’s strength is Believing in its own way. Reed’s shadow comes from believing its “way” is the “only way” for someone else. It’s not too hard to see that all our different “ways” could expand the Truth we are capable to see.
We can be so bent on the children seeing things “our way” that we forget their wisdom. They have something to share too. We know children are wise beyond their years. Yet, how often do we share THAT truth? In “Uncle Bear Heart’s” book, “The Wind is My Mother,” he shares the story of being raised on the traditional path of the shaman that began in childhood. Children weren’t told what to think. They were asked what they thought. It’s Divine to know we can figure things out for our self.
We weren’t intended to share Our Truth as the Way. Instead, “believing in our own Truth” will be a Way for the Whole. We can stand on our own Truth when we hold the Intention of Knowing and this is the Truth we can see now. We’re not being raised to be “right” or “wrong.” “Right and Wrong” are useless observations, irrelevant to the Intention of Love. The Integrity of Standing on our Truth is a Higher Intention. Let’s face it. We never hold the whole truth. Our Truth is the only thing we can see. A Divine One Honors the Intention of Integrity – to the limits we think we know what we’re doing. It won’t matter when we are the “hollow bone” and a Light can shine through it.
The glyph illustrates an altar with 2 channels of Light, Above, and 2 thatched prayer matts, Below. All we have to do to become a Guiding Light for Family is to be a demonstration of one that goes to an altar for the Divine Truth. Sharing the Truth of Human limitations, the children will see how we are changed with every visit. Reed/BEN holds the Element of Fire. Fire holds the Power of Transmutation to change “matter” into the “pure energy” of Light. The Greatest Light that Reed can share is Belonging, sharing the Truth that no matter our age, we’re all in this game together. No one holds Wisdom more important than another. We can learn something by our differences.
From the direction of the East, Reed/BEN shines the Light of our New Way, honoring Truth we Believe. Our Truth is an Offering we can sacrifice to know a Higher Truth. We can BELIEVE that when we turn to the Creator’s Light there will always be something more beautiful to see.
Days marked by Reed/BEN call for a Blessing of the Home. The Maya observe the Time to also check in on the neighbors. Reed/BEN upholds the Truth of Belonging. It’s easy to serve those “we call family.” We don’t have to entertain family. We can go straight to the task and turn the world around for someone else in 15 minutes, through a random act of kindness. Family is knowing we are a pack and there is someone else who will stand in our corner. In a Divine Family we can see that we all have different talents. When we are the “hollow bone” we’ll see something that’s easy for us to offer that’s hard for someone else. We won’t use the Truth to compare one better than another. We’ll know our own place in the Divine Family by what WE have that’s Special to Give. We’ll honor our Gifts in the Reason they were given, Our treasure to share with the Whole. Imagine how happy life could be, when the Greatest Love we have to Give is, by Design, the Easiest thing we can do.
To know the Whole Truth we need some Light to See the Unseen. If we teach nothing else, at an altar we reflect our Faith in things Unseen for every Divine Possibility. That One Truth is more important than the details of Here and Now. We share Hope at an altar, an ember that a Divine Creator will Breath into a flame.
To all my relations, we’re called to invest our Heart in the Dream and let it go at an altar. An Offering of Atonement will always shine a Higher Way. When we bend to one another to understand another point of view, we acknowledge the Value of One in another Time and Place. We give more Love sharing a Truth that someone knows something we don’t know, than we ever share through a demonstration of how perfect we are. No one will ever find a way to manifest that end, unless we believed it was true from the beginning.
May we invest our Whole Heart in the Intention to prove that everyone belongs. May we turn to the Light of another, See it and Acknowledge it, so someone else can believe it too. May the Sum of the Beauty we know together be the ties that bind. May we Acknowledge the 13th Tribe that is growing in the Dream Above, sharing a Light of Wisdom from every Time and Place.
in lak’ech, i am another you

6 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed I’hya)
Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.
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 endeaver to bring peace, harmony, and order to all of their relations. Reeds are blessed with great skill at negotiations and consoling which are very often put to the test. Although Reeds need a log of appreciation, many have a marriage or business problems because of inflexible views and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson of Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe.
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.

To Pass through the Gate of the Oracle requires the Courage to stand on the Truth of our Intention.
