THE TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN: DREAMING A NEW WORLD
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The Monkey Creator and Master Artist within is getting a little more excited with every step. Can you FEEL the Truth? CHUEN is going to be REALLY excited when we take the 5th step. (We may hear some jumping and the monkey’s echoing laugher in our mind.) It’s a REAL dream we’re creating, and our own choice for the experience. We’re reaching Outside our old box.
Tone 5 raises the Intention of Empowerment. A Common/Divine thought every Human shares is to gather all the tools before we begin “the work” of Creation. The Monkey is FREE to explore all the powers of our Divine Nature. CHUEN is an alchemist at play, like we were in the beginning.
From the “center of our bigger box” the cube, is the Power of Consciousness, that by design, gathers the tools for what’s already REAL in the imagination. How else do we know which colors of paint we needed to have at hand? The dream is becoming real 1st in our mind.
Knowing and actually Seeing this Divine invisible power, we realize there’s more under the hood than we’ve thought to imagine. We CAN create a new world, when we choose from the beginning what we’re “going see.” Our Spirit is REALLY GOING THERE to see it.
The Life of our Hopes and Dreams took on a new and dynamic sense of Movement. The momentum was created by one small climb turning in a circle to see the Truth all around us, and imagining how the reflection of our Movement from Above, must be a beautiful turning of our Light. What looked like we were going in circles, was a spiral of ever-expanding Truth from our Own Experience and Wisdom. We knew already that the blessings before us on the table represents a Human investment of Love, someone else working toward the same Dreams of their Highest Hopes and Aspirations. There is More Love invested in every bite than we can imagine from what we DO know.
By Divine Design, for this most important “work” of THIS cycle of Light is guided by Eagle/MEN. The Eagle shares an empowerment of Divine Vision. The Eagle knows how to apply the Resources to its full capacity. The Eagle shares the wings of an intermediary to lift our thoughts for our own Divine View of the Future. All the Eagle needs to see is the speck of a distinctive color of fur, hidden within a bush nearly 2 miles away. The Eagle uses its eyes to “look hard and fast.” The Eagle’s way is to narrow its vision to the prize and never turn its eyes away. The Eagle flies by leaps and falls to the Divine Truth it Knows will catch it’s wings. Then it flies by Intuition toward the end, leaning into the “truth of the wind” all the way.
Eagle/MEN resides in the West, where the Unknown Future is just another Choice to See. The Eagle’s strength is looking farther down the road. What we can’t see could be fixed tomorrow, we CAN see what can be fixed in Time. Building the pillars of Truth of our Integrity and Good Sense, can only lead to higher ground. (Monkey would put the eyes to use to satisfy its own curious nature. “Hmmm, how far CAN I see if I look?”) When the Truth of a Sacred Exchange is what we’ve chosen to realize, the 1 can share a glimpse. Maybe it’s only a Feeling and a Speck, like a fleeting glimpse from a Dream that we didn’t quite finish, but we KNEW the end was beautiful.
While the Monkey is busy gathering all the tools – eager to get started, the Eagle will share our Highest Hopes and our Highest Aspirations. Those are ways and the means the Monkey will draw into the Consciousness of our Dream. As long as we’re dreaming, and we have an invisible warehouse full of paint in every color – why not imagine something REALLY BIG. It will be better than a speck to shine from the right direction.
We’re still in the primordial soup. Why not fish around to see if we could feel something bigger in our hand? Tone 5 completes Human’s hand in the Creation, when we get the Divine idea to apply every means and way we know to a Divine Cause in our future. We can let go of the “reality” of “now” and focus on the Truth of tomorrow that we know by our own Highest Hopes an Aspirations is Our Masterpiece of Life that CAN REALLY be the Truth.
Holding the Element of Water, the Eagle opens our Heart and Spirit to Feel Truth that’s Real Divine Guidance. Like invisibility, when our Truth is that no one sees us, no one hears us, and no one has a clue what we are going through, WE’RE INVISIBLE. What kid didn’t hope for such a divine power? What could you do if you knew you were really invisible? Where would you go to see and listen to a REAL reality show? Look down. The Jaguar’s footprints led us here. The Eagle helps us feel how Truth can catch our wings. We only need a shred of hope for Human’s journey and a burning desire in our heart.
(Monkey says, “Look how the same feature works when human doesn’t see it or know how to use it.” Humans can be drawn to a dream of love by a second look. We have the mother’s claws to grasp the thread when we see a mere reflection of Love. One look at Love can turn our thought to imagine.)
The Empowerment for Tone 5 that’s shared by the Eagle is, “I can’t quite see all the way to the end. But, everything makes sense with enough Time, I can do anything.” We know that is True. We Know we can achieve what we have chosen and risked our heart to see for how hard we could fall. We don’t think about that. We follow the Eagle, and never give doubts a second look. What good would it add to our cause? When we reach to imagine our Highest Aspiration, it’s at least worth every shot. Our Highest dream deserves some Time and distance for all we hold the power to imagine along the way.
The Eagle’s only shadow is a choice to fly away. We can fly away from a dream if we allow our mind to engage a doubt. “Maybe I don’t have that much time left. Maybe it will be gone before I get there. Maybe someone else has the same idea. What chance do I have? Maybe I’ll just settle for what’s here and now. It’s better than nothing.” The Monkey agrees. “Life is sweet under the covers. GREAT IDEA. Sleep your time away! You could cover the windows and doors to sleep in darkness forever!” Maybe the Monkey can be sarcastic as well as funny.
The Truth we already know, and can Remember is the Divine Inspiration that started the whole dream. We KNEW it was a Divine Choice that WE could make, and it was already meant to be by the way we saw it fulfill our Dream in a way like no other. It was custom fit for every limitation, and the Perfect Justice for every step we were willing to take. It wasn’t anyone else’s dream. We can Remember it was an Offering with our Name on it.
The Elders say many times, “It’s not about what YOU can do. WILL YOU REMEMBER?” One Truth can change everything.
The Eagle’s eyes empower our own hand with a Truth that Divine Justice is only within OUR grasp. No one else wants what we want. We all know the Dream that comes true to fulfill OUR Divine Justice is always better. We paid the price and made the investment of Love TO SEE it. To the One Thought of Truth we can imagine just the way it feels when we close our hand. We can only reach higher ground from here on. From up above we can’t see any challenge on the direct flight from Point A to Point “Be” without any stops or layovers, where we could get distracted by someone else’s beauty that’s manifesting there and now. We ALL arrive at the Divine End with the Truth we Intend to Know. By Design, we’ll be looking to see it.
To all my relations, may we use the Power in our Hand to reach to the One that CAN and always WILL. We can share the Power of our Hand to follow the plan that unfolds along the way. May we listen for the Truth in our thoughts. May we imagine what the Truth we Know could guide us to do.
For all we know there’s someone as close as next door, praying for our arrival. Someone is lost without a thought they can see. Shining our Truth in all 4 directions without ever being seen, our Divine Hope can flicker in the darkness. Maybe it only passes by as the thought of a sweet perfume. The least we can do is call forth a Question that Love could be waiting as close as next door beyond the Sunrise of another tomorrow.
It’s easier to believe for tomorrow than to claim it next door right now. A silly human being would run right over to see it. The One next door doesn’t look that way today. The flaws won’t fit the picture in our dream. It takes THINKING to imagine, WE would want to get ready before Love shows up with flowers at our door. Someone else is getting ready too. We can wait long enough to put our best foot forward. The Human that was willing to give it a try, deserves to be seen Beautiful, when we’re ready.
We’ll forget all about how things “are supposed to look,” if we remember the footprints in thin air and just keep focusing on One Point of Light. It’s a hole in the darkness and we have an idea about what we’ll see when we get close enough to Look Through to the Other side of this Divine Dream.
in lak’ech, i am another you

THE JAGUAR’S MAGIC OF GRATITUDE:
I’m grateful for the Beauty of Nature.
During the Spring of 2009 I watched a video cam all the way through from the Eagle first out of its egg to the day it fledged. It was amazing to see Love given from such a “serious one.” The Mother and Father took turns fishing and bringing it back to the nest. The image of the bird looking at its reflection above, was just like the side-shots offered of Dad’s fishing hole. I went through the storms with them and could hardly sleep those nights to see if they were okay in the morning. With the feathers still sticking kind of straight out, sometimes it was funny to see them try to hide their heads under the Mother when that was all that would now fit. I waited in anticipation for the day it would fledge. It was a beautiful day. The Eagle was gone from the nest before I checked in. The camera hadn’t found it yet and it was clearly the Father that was watching out from the nest above… waiting for a safe return. It brought the last fish back to the nest and left it there, standing over it, for the one who might return. When they finally found the Eagle, it was at the Father’s fishing hole. The little Eagle was watching Dad the whole time. Only the angle on the camera was so beautiful from behind the Eagle, facing the waters of life rushing by, while it realized the Dream came True and ALL the Divine Possibilities waiting, yet to be explored. We were given the Divine Eyes to see the very Truth of Life and the Consciousness of every being we choose to imagine. The most beautiful was the Father with that serious face, saving the fish at Home where the little-one-grown-up could still belong, and would KNOW by the Divine Provision saved for a Choice to return.
I looked for a “live” Eagle cam and came to this one https://youtu.be/7utMaDb1W08
The nest in focus is empty at the moment. From the chat that goes with, the parents may be working on a home remodeling project. Okay – here’s the story offered below. These Eagles are preparing for another Time for Love in the future.
What’s happening at the nest: We are sad to report, after egg 1 began to hatch, it appears that sometime during the day on 3/19 the eaglet passed away. Egg 2 did not hatch and was removed from the nest by a raven on 4/18. The eagles are now in their summer routine, out doing what eagles do. They will periodically visit the nest, add sticks and maybe even bring in lunch. The live cam remains on 24/7 throughout the year.
Still learning to live with the loss:

5 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural net workers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
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: Eagle’s 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.
