THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK: LIGHT FOR A NEW LIFE
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 6 raises the Intention of Flow. A Divine Force of Intelligence from the Center of the Seed created Momentum through a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement. Thoughts we chose as the “rules of a game” begin to take on the Life of the Intention. We always find a better way, AFTER we begin “the work.”
The Energy of Tone 6 is compared to a “great athlete.” The 6th Hour of Light is just before the Zenith Hour. By late morning, inherent within our thoughts is the Light to find our “best way.” By late morning we realize a faster pace when we’re “lost in the work” – Loving Creation. Then, we see a Higher End. On Tone 6 we are wholly invested to see how far we can really go. Tone 6 turns steps into an Expression of the Art of Life.
Road/EB is the Day Sign of Human Destiny, also known as Human. The Aztec Day Sign is Grass (Malinalli). The Maya call Human the “Time Bearer.” Time was created for the Human journey. Human bears the Time of the Unknown. Only Time can reveal the Whole Beauty that lies at the end.
Along with Time, Human was given the Sacred Right of Choice in the image of the Supreme Creator. In the End “who we are” will be defined by all the Choices we make. Meanwhile, so will others be making their own choices. Some Times it will be hard to see that we’re growing together.
We don’t have to see the Truth in every Moment to Believe. Faith is as good as Believing. Faith is a Divine Choice that always leads to Divine Justice. Because Humans need something tangible to believe, the Truth of Divine Justice was made a Law of the Universe that we could easily believe – Cause and Effect.
Road/EB resides in the South, the direction of our Relationships with one another and with the Natural World. EB shares the ties that bind Humanity. Our Common Burden is “the hard road” – the physicality of Life and the burden of survival. Carrying prayers to an altar for the whole, we create Relationship. Through the Gift of Consciousness, we learn to step into someone else’s shoes. We will see others climbing through much harsher terrain. FEELING how hard it is, our Hearts are tied together.
A Divine Creator tends the Seed making its way to the Light. Planted in the Center of Love, roots can divinely intertwine. When we’re not too close or too far we can spread our wings, and still help to weather every storm together. Divine Forces are at Hand. When we Know our Reason, the Truth will be our Holy Ground.
EB holds position 12, the symbol of Humanity. We are the Being of Duality (2) in the “lower place” that is guided by the One Above. Humans are the 12 Tribes Below that raise the 13th Tribe. In the Choice of the 2 to be aligned as 1 we manifest the Power of Divine Trinity. When we’re all turned to the Central Truth of Love, the Warmth and Light is Felt in Harmony and Equity, completing a Circle of Divine Love.
There is no way for Human Beings to ever be the same. Each was given a Time and Place, their own experience of Life. MANIK offers a demonstration of Human’s way to be a Dog, and Human’s way to be the Monkey, creating the Beauty of Love without conditions.
When we KNOW we are enough, we can apply our gift of Duality for a Higher Purpose. Comparing our self to someone else won’t make sense when we’ve learned to see Life through the eyes of another. The Sacred Exchange for the Offering is Empathy. We KNOW how it FEELS.
The EB glyph illustrates the Road on Human’s head. The Sacred Right of Choice is a Blessing and a Burden. It’s Our Choice to keep moving beyond every obstacle. It’s Our Choice, which way to go. The Spark within knows the direction to the Light is the “other way” from the gravity of matters that hold us down. A Divine Force of Intelligence within the Seed knows to DIG IN to the earth to grow the roots to reach High Above. As we dig through the darkness, the experiences of physicality will draw the Consciousness of Life to the Light.
A Divine Creator knows Humans limits of Time. There is a Sacred Exchange for every Offering of Love and Forgiveness. We see the Light of Truth from the Creator’s eyes with every Offering of Atonement. Human wants to see the Truth here and now. The Answer to the prayer, is to know the Truth we Need to know, right now. Growing the Empathy of Compassionate Love, we’ll Know how much Higher our Dreams can grow.
We can dedicate the Time we Love as an Offering of Light. The Elders say that what we heal in our Self, we are healing for the Whole. A Divine Creator gave us endless Reasons to Love.
Grass grows in small steps, though, before you know it, Grass can take over everything. Grass can be uprooted, but it will take hold again. Grass can be trampled under foot and still rise again. We were Given a Divine Gift – a Fire within to keep going as the Force is Love. The Aztec tradition shares that Grass is a good day for the “oppressed” and a very bad day for the “oppressor.”
The Cherokee Day Sign is the Rattlesnake Tooth used as an implement of Spiritual Medicine. The Rattlesnake Tooth was used to break the Skin where a Divine Healing would be applied. It left a mark. The Rainbow was the spectrum of electromagnetic energy, a spectre of our Connection, Above and the Below. The rainbow is created from Light that passes through water, and by the curve of Human’s eye.
EB leaves a mark of Divine Truth on our Life, a turning point. The glyph illustrates the milestones on either side of the Road to remind us that there are Times Given for Human to see Truth all at once, the way Human likes to see it, NOW, in living color.
On Road/EB we’re likely to see something we’ve known for a long time, all-at-once. The Truth is intended for a turn toward Right Relationship. We will Remember the day. (George Floyd’s death was marked on Road/EB, and the world saw what we already knew. The sacrifice was transformed to Light from Above, when the darkness of the experience manifested a Reason to Love.)
EB represents the Human journey marked within by a Divine Calendar. The Tzolk’in leads a way for Human to create a Beautiful Life. We ALL hold a Truth that with enough Time, we will Master what we Love to do. It just takes Time to Know we Know. When Time “before and after” is marked on a calendar, when we go back to the Time the Truth will always make Common Sense. Time will always share a Higher Way.
EB is a Day to Honor Humanity and the journey that is our Common Destiny. May we Remember Gifts passed down, especially those Ancestors that could invest no more than just the Human Will to Survive. We can apply Divine Wisdom to change Our story. We CAN change “what happened to me” into “the Truth I learned.”
To all my relations, may we Love our Self with empathy and compassion. May we have patience with our Self for what takes Time to See. May we give thanks for all our differences. Once to know it is part of a Divine Plan, we won’t have to be “the same” or “better.” We are all broken, and we’re ALL enough.
May our eyes be opened to the weight of Human matter to Feel another Reason to Love. May we send the Light of our Gratitude and Appreciation for every link in the Circle that can share Truth from another Time that we WILL know too. May Seeing the Truth in Gratitude and Appreciation, connect the Circle that, together, will Master the Art of a Divine Life, paying Love Back and paying Love Forward for the Blessing.
in lak’ech, i am another you

HOLDING THE WAY OF THE JAGUAR: The Power of Gratitude
I’m grateful for all the Divine Reasons to Love we learn on the “hard road.” I’m grateful for Human Beings who know how it feels.
ENERGY REPORT: REMINDER
If the Truth hurts, remember it’s leaving a mark of Divine Truth. It’s Our Choice to Feel the Truth we won’t forget.

6 Road/EB (Cherokee, Rattlesnake Tooth/KANU’GA)
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.
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.
