THE TRECENA OF SUN/AHAU: APPLYING THE LIGHT TO LIFE
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 raises the Intention of Understanding. 12 is the symbol of Human, the Being of Duality that resides in the Lower Place, guided by the One Above. 12 holds the Potential Value of the 13, when the 2 below is United as 1 for a Divine Reason.
On Tone 11 we were given the Highest Truth, and the value by which we can make a comparison. Sun/AHAU shines its Light as a Pillar for new and Higher Faith to stand. On the Equinox, the Sun stays in place for the Time to be seen and acknowledged, under the Order and Authority of the Light of Life, Love, and Happiness. A Divine Mother plays her role. Leaning into the Light, we see our Self and our Life from a new angle.
Tone 12 draws all the disassociated pieces and parts of Truth into a new and meaningful whole. Divine Agency can make sense of all the Truth we’ve seen, without factoring it in to the “sum of the whole.” Faith is raised to believing through a Gift of Comprehension. We Believe the Truth when we realize, we already know. When we “hear the Truth” our thoughts immediately turn to all the times we already asked the question. We thought we knew, though we never claimed it. We weren’t sure. It was just a Feeling.
Tone 12 is the Day we “see the Light.” In synchronicity with Equinox, the Time is marked by a Light that descends from Above. Kulkulkan, the Feathered Serpent will descend along the stairs of the calendar pyramid at Chichen Itza. El Castillo is the Temple to Kulkulkan that shares Light and Sound that echoes back.
We can Feel Spring in the Air. Spring shares the experience of waking up to the Beauty of the world. On the Equinox we are Feeling One with the Universe, sharing the same Divine Cause for a New Beginning. The Time was given to know a Time in synchronicity on a Universal Scale, One Truth for everything… a Balance maintained by perpetual movement, and all things given their own Time and Place. Without some order the stars would collide.
Love for our Self maintains the proper distance, while Divine Love for the Whole is the Force to hold us together. When we Love the Whole as we Love our Self, when we Love our Self as much as we Love the Whole, we can maintain a Perpetual Motion of Love. Intending to be the First to Give, we can believe in Love that waits ever-after.
Monkey/CHUEN is the archetype of the Creator and the Weaver of Time. The Monkey shares the peak position with Dog/OC. As One, they reflect the most Divine Aspects of the Supreme Creator, the Gifts that were shared with the Scion. The Monkey Loves Consciousness the way the Dog Loves Love. CHUEN is a Master of all Art. Seeing the Beauty of the Dog’s Love, Monkey/CHUEN sees the Opportunity of Time and the Power to Create the Beauty of Love by Intention.
Art is the medium through which we Express a Dream within. Monkey/CHUEN conceives the Divine Idea to turn our Life into the Expression of ALL the Beauty we CAN see. The Monkey holds the Highest Genius in the Natural World. We conceive our Highest Human genius with the Idea that we hold the Power to create a BEAUTIFUL LIFE. The Monkey sees the Unlimited Possibilities of the Imagination, when it’s directed by Conscious thoughts and Divine Intentions.
Monkey/CHUEN resides in the West, the Direction of our Unknown Future. Through an Affinity with the Dog, the Monkey knows that Love is the Light of Life, along with the Power to create it. CHUEN sends a Light to see that we hold the reins to Choose our own Divine Destiny. With every Creation of Love, the Monkey knows how it will multiply in Time. CHUEN Loves Time for the Opportunity. The glyph illustrates “all time” rolled up in the Monkey’s head.
ALL our Time is saved and rolled up in our Human head. It’s the map to all the Truth we’ve seen so far. CHUEN is Conscious of seeing the past, present, and future. CHUEN has the Sense to see that Human is a Time Traveler. We can go to any place and time through the Gift of Consciousness. We can even see the world through someone else’s eyes. We can see an end, before we ever begin. That’s the Light that the Monkey/CHUEN can teach us to APPLY to Create OUR Life.
In the first Season of the Tzolk’in, we learn the “basics of Life.” Sun/AHAU guided us to see the Light we hold within that we can’t see, though the Truth has always been, and we will know it’s Truth that will always be. We’re drawn back by our Feelings. Human hates to go back for that, when Human emotions painted a picture we’d rather forget. We tried to forgive and forget. So, why does the darkness still haunt us. The Monkey holds all the simple answers. We were drawn back for the opportunity to change the darkness into Light.
With a Sense of Humor we can see. Even the worst experiences in our past can share one thing to be happy about. It’s over. The pain in our memory can be over, when we see the Light that was born from the experience. From a different perspective, one that only sees the Beauty of Life, we could see the Faith that grew to “move on.” We learned what hurts to conceive the Beauty of Compassion. Even suffering gave us something Divine to share, knowing how it feels.
Understanding is the Light from Above to see the Higher Value of “knowing how it feels” as the only way to discern the Truth of anything. We don’t know the whole of anything without the patience to see it from every angle, and to Feel it through all our senses. The mission is beyond human limitations, when we forget to look. Through the Divine Gift of Comprehension, One Light is enough to see all the Truth we DID see. We just missed the Reason that relies on the “Time to Know.”
Comprehension is an Act of Divine Agency, drawing all the Feelings about Life into One Truth that makes sense of the whole. This is a Day to Know we are One with the Universe, a Time when our oldest ancestors gathered to see the time that “stops” for the New Light. In perfect synchronicity, CHUEN shares the Light for a Happy Life. CHUEN isn’t ruled by any silly human emotions. Why waste time to Forgive, when in one stroke of Light, darkness can we swept out of the whole picture – leaving the most Beautiful Light of Human creation. What is it, exactly, that we think we’re “giving up” with the Choice to Forgive? What, exactly, are we holding onto? It’s Common Sense to the Monkey that being right isn’t consecrated as a “thing of beauty.” Whenever we THINK we’re right, we’ve lost the whole point. No one ever looks at a Masterpiece of Art and admires how “right” it is, unless it’s a blueprint. The Monkey’s only blueprint for life is to throw the colors everywhere, to see what a Supreme Creator marks as the Beauty of our Love.
Monkey/CHUEN helps us to see the Masterpiece of our Life, given for us to create as the Expression of all the Beauty we’ve seen and acknowledged. The Monkey doesn’t mind if Love is a little messed up by Human’s hand. The Raccoon is the same trickster of the Cherokee calendar, that doesn’t mind getting dirty when there’s Water to clean it up. Love is the Living water to see beyond the marks left by Human’s dirty hands. The Gold that will shine from within is the Highest Intention to make Love the Meaning of Our Time.
Human’s take life SO seriously. We’re sure that our path is not as important as those that left the Divine Inheritance of Wisdom before. It’s like the stories in the Bible I was taught to believe. For all the words and Truth that is spoken, Human relates it to Another Time. The words speak of Miracles and Heaven, though do we ever LIVE like we REALLY believe it’s True? Why is it easier to believe it could happen “then” than it is to believe the same Truth “now.” How did we ever make sense of believing in Salvation that was “then” without applying a Truth that we intended for forever? What, exactly, do our declarations of faith mean if they aren’t Expressed as the REAL Truth of our Life? Like every Creation, we manifest the Highest Truth we can claim.
Holding the Element of Water, CHUEN can shine the Light on our Emotions and the Truth in our Heart. The Monkey’s HIghest Discernment of the Truth is that Truth is only known by Feeling. Human was sure that we could rely on the faculties of our mind. Monkey/CHUEN has a BIG laugh. A Divine Consciousness was given to discern Divine Truth. It’s a wasted resources of limited capacity, without the Choice to imagine the Divine Possibilities of Love. Feelings are always the Measure of the Truth of Love.
To all my relations, may we be like the Monkey. When we’re called to any place in time by our Human emotions, may we open our eyes and look around at the WHOLE picture. A Divine faculty to carry us back through Time wasn’t given to see the same thing over and over again. There are OTHER Truths of Love waiting in the past, the present, and the future. Why bother looking for anything but the Light of Beauty, when that’s what we LOVE TO SEE.
May we see the backward ways of Human Love, as a good enough reason to always forgive. May we claim the Truth that there’s no Human on Earth, that doesn’t hope to leave a little Light on something they Loved. What have you thought about saving for your children to see? There’s a reason why we tried to keep all the family skeletons in the closet. Light was the Beauty we hoped to leave behind without any human fingerprints. At least we can see the End was Love and a feeble Human attempt to claim we earned it, because we were right. It’s sad but true. That “right” thing has always been a Human limitation, and chances are, it always will.
May we claim the Right to Be and Love the only Reason that will always create beauty in every Time and Place we look to see it. May we throw the colors of Love on our canvas to see how a Divine Hand will make it beautiful in the end, for the Time we spend in Divine Communion with the Light Above.

12 Monkey/CHUEN (Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI)
Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability, of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.
Monkey/CHUEN: Monkey is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many Monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult to stay with anything long enough to master it.
Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI: Star Symbol: Algol, a star in Perseus. Restless energy yearning for long-lost love. Algol was named DEMON STAR or MISCHIEVOUS ONE by the Ancients because it winks and fades at times. Raccoons are full of friendly mischief, eager to swap kisses for candy; magnetic leaders, full of humor and gaiety. Favorite food is corn, the mainstay of the Cherokee. Very artistic while being the “masked bandit” who steals your heart.
