THE TRECENA OF ROAD/EB: THE ROAD TO DESTINY
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
4 Eagle/MEN is the Global Burner at the Center of the 2nd Season of the Tzolk’in. What is no longer needed is burned away as residual energy. Matters can be brought to the resolution of “pure Spirit.”
Old matters get heavy leading up to Human’s release. The Mayan priest performs the Sacred Fire Ceremony to draw the Community back into harmony again. When the smoke of the prayers and the smell of copal are present in the Air, the Whole Sees and Remembers the Fire where we can let something go. The Whole is drawn by the Light to kneel for the Offering.
Tone 4 holds the Intention of Stability. All the Global Burners are marked by the 4th Tone. Tone 4 is related to the cube, the most stable of all forms. The area and dimension are defined by its borders and parameters. The pillars of faith in our Dream are established by defining a dimension of thought. From the beginning we can choose which thoughts “belong” in our Life, and which thoughts we’ll turn away as belonging somewhere else.
We can direct our thoughts AND human emotions, when we lay boundaries from our own objective consciousness, rather than the choice we make later as an unconscious reaction to experience. We have our Own Truth to live by.
Eagle/MEN is the Intermediary that can teach us to fly by Intuition. The Eagle looks far off to the future for the prize. It doesn’t expect to see the whole picture. The speck of a distinctive color of fur, under a bush, 1.9 miles away is within the Eagle’s vision to see. The Gift of the Eagle is knowing that whatever it can see lies within its grasp.
The Eagle’s way is to see the future and mark an “X” on the prize. That’s all the Eagle needs to know, is that Spark of Higher Truth we know we’ll know. Without having to know what it is, the Eagle never turns its eyes away. When its locked in the coordinates of a destination, it leaps and falls to the first Breath of Wind that catches its wings. To fly like an Eagle, we let the Truth catch our wings, and we lean in to the way.
The trick of flying like an Eagle depends on seeing our Own Truth. We can’t fly by what anyone else sees and Know the end. We were given an Intermediary of Spirit that can help to raise our Consciousness to the Highest limits we can reach, close to the Proximity of the One Above. We’re carried on Eagle’s Wings and given Eagle’s eyes to see as close as we can, what the Creator sees for us. There are no obstacles between point A and point B from the view Above, just a direct course of dips and dives.
There’s lots of Truth we could lean into. We’re choosing the path of Truth we’ll lean into.
The best description I’ve come up with so far of “leaning in to the Truth” was from an experience from a gathering (long ago). It was a Dog/OC day and I was up for spreading all my love around. I came to one who hardly had the time of day. To “lean into the Truth” I remembered, he doesn’t have time right now. He’s somewhere else in thought. Some other One IS WAITING. We can dip and dive around dark thoughts that might otherwise beckon us to follow. Everything in the Mayan tradition is learned from pictures – illustrated words and numbers, pictures carved in stone, and the stories told by Life and Mother Nature. The Way offers a tangible relationship Human can relate to ordinary life.
The Eagle lies in the West, the direction of the Unknown Future. Holding the Element of Water, the Eagle can speak to our Heart. We have a Divine Reason for the choices we will make – to uphold our Brand New Life. As we discover the Blessing of our Dreams for Life, we’ll draw closer toward the same end. When we see the value of our own Life, we’ll be prepared to Love the Life that has been sacrificed for us to Know.
The only thing that prevents an Eagle from reaching the end is to turn and fly away. There is a desire to escape some of the Truth we have to see in our Self. “Feeling bad” is that Fire that is changing something within. The Body does what it does for everything. When we are physically injured, blood rushes to the place and raises the temperature as the healing begins. We could attempt to experience the Truth of it that way, instead of an experience of injustice. What turns an Eagle around is the idea of competition or the time it takes. We can think someone will claim our creation before we get it done. Or, there’s not enough time – it’s too late now. A dream can feel easier to forget.
One Truth about the directions is that no matter where you stand, the answer to the Time and Place is right in front of you. Standing in the West, we can see the Light in the East. If we remember our Divine Inspiration, it was given to us by the One Above. The One above all gave us our own Dreams. By Design it establishes the Pillars for Faith to stand for every Light shared from above. We can always find the Truth in the Light. Lucky a Jaguar is leading us in that direction.
To all my relations, may we think of what we want to think about. Where will we focus our intention. We only have to do it for a couple more days before we reach the Power of our Momentum! We’re already halfway through Human’s journey to see things from a higher point of view.
We have such little Time and so much Beauty we could see, to bring Light into the Sanctuary of our Life. There’s not another Human Being that can interrupt our flight, when we follow that Divine Truth that lies in thin air. Somehow we know where we belong, flying with those ready and willing to go along. When others see how much fun we’re having, in time they will come around and see what they missed. 🙂
I’m glad you’re my wing people. I was thinking about how cool it would be, to know the names of all our Gods that are the all-in-one. We each hold more of the story from a different point of view. The Mayan calendar is in sync with many of the spiritual calendars and traditions of the world. They cross important times and dates. Human Beings made the climb with the Intention to share the Light with the Whole. We all die trying to Live the Life we Love to the very end. May we create a way together in Spirit – a River of Faith all flowing toward a Truth of Divinity at the end. May we imagine Loving “all of our self” the Human Body that carries on for so long, and the Spirit that lasts forever.
We won’t have to create any “rules of the game” for the negative thoughts, if we focus on the Bright ones, we’ll be beyond them, before we even see the darkness.
in lak’ech, I am another you,
Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle / MEN
GLOBAL BURNER: An Offering of Fire
The “word” is in the Flame. The Sacred Fire Ceremony page offers the Vision shared by “Beautiful Painted Arrow.” Included is a way to carry it out inside, using wooden matches. A candle is just as worthy to See and Acknowledge a Power that burns matter away, sending only the Light that travels to the ends of Time. May we give the Fire a Life in our own way and lose our self in the Light that changes matter into pure energy. The traditional gift of tobacco was offered to the Fire from the left hand. The Firekeeper always announced the direction that the first log fell. Life is a Fire within that can change all our Human matters back into the Light of Truth. The Truth is the Word of the Creator, the Alpha and Omega, the End spoken from the Beginning.

4 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)
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.
Eagle/MEN: Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagles superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle personas as the flapping of wings would sustain their bird brothers. If Eagle becomes viciously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.
Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI: Symbol is Mars the Spirit Warrior. He is a minion of Grandfather Moon. Eagles were the warrior society, the braves the protectors of the nation.Women were included. There was no discrimination which is reflected in the language: third person singular is divided into animate, human and animate, not human instead of he and she. The energy of high hopes and anticipations, dreams and visions,cosmic consciousness and commitment. On earth a provider of excellence, leader, husbandry, care-taking of others, financial security and inheritance. Totem-Eagle. Powerful energy for success in worldly affairs, due to far seeing vision. Ability to create masses of money and abundance through an intellectual type of profession. Eagle asks for what he desires and manifests it. Professor, lawyer, teacher, leader.

REMEMBERING RAYSHARD BROOKS
On June 12, 2020, (4 Dog/OC) Rayshard Brooks was killed by police after falling asleep in the Wendy’s drive-through lane. He was 27 years old, preparing to celebrate his daughter’s 8th birthday. The Love of a Dog was with him on the path to the stars. All those that we Remember, Know the Light of our Prayers in the Up Above. Our Divine Justice is claimed the moment we cross to the otherside. The Love that is ours to grow is the Sound of Living Prayers. May we remember the children, the families and friends who bear the sacrifice for ALL Humans who are Taken.
