THE TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN: DREAMING A NEW WORLD
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Monkey/CHUEN is guiding us to the Common Sense of Creation by combining the Truth as we go along. We thought of the Means and the Way, and focused a Divine Eye on the future.
The Monkey and the Raccoon would be celebrating our accomplishment, having put 2 thoughts together. Though, there’s still more to learn. Two thoughts will carry us as far as the threshold. It still takes a Divine Thought to open the door.
Do you wonder if we’ll ever learn? Sometimes it can feel like no matter how hard we apply our self to the task, the less progress we seem to make. I’ve still made a couple of choices I wish I could change, like keeping thoughts to myself. Time would have been better spent thinking about it first. It wasn’t an offense to anyone but myself. Even the “best” thoughts need time to know what they mean.
“When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” The Monkey and the Raccoon are celebrating again. We finally figured out. The less we think we know, the more Divine Truth will make Common Sense. “Knowing nothing” is an Open Hand.
CIB (Keeb) holds the Highest Wisdom, drawn from a Divine State of Mind. The glyph illustrates the Human mind in its highest Illumination, emanating the Light of Love, Truth, and Forgiveness. Forgiveness is the Key to our Divine Kingdom.
Tone 6 creates the Intention of Flow. We enter the peak energy of the trecena. Momentum was created from a rhythm and pattern of Movement. We moved by Spirit to the realm Above where we could see the Truth from a Higher Perspective. Truth that was “stuck” like we had to drag it along, has changed from the state of “static” to “dynamic.” All it takes is to see a little progress to know we’re making ground. Once we’re on our way, our eyes are open to see applications of Truth and Ways of Choosing that will return the highest ends. Someone needed to see a brighter light, before we got the idea to fly away. Life is “okay” where we are.
We’ve reached a crossroad. It’s time to make a Leap into the River of Life. Will we swim against the tide of all the thoughts around us? Or, is it beginning to make Common Sense to keep on going with the Flow of Our Dream of Life? There may be a few waves to cross. Though, what we Do know is the Power of Love is behind us. 6 Wisdom/CIB is Kin 136. 6 is 2 trinities working toward the same accord, guided by the same Trinity Above, both reaching for an even Higher One.
Love guides us to do what is beyond our Human Nature. Knowing the beauty as we are seen from Above, we find everything we could reach to be. A mind and heart filled with Love, moves us in mysterious ways.
Wisdom/CIB turns our thoughts to the Old Ones and the Ascended Masters who walked this way before. Whether our grandparents learned to walk in the light, or they just figured out how to survive – Loving Life was the reason. Today the 2 are connected as 1 for their equal contribution to the Life we were given. It was just as hard on the parent who never lived up to our expectations. They know we know their limitations. They may never conquer the limitations they are afraid to see, the way we see. The Truth is only won when we all look at what it means through the eyes of the Highest One.
CIB connects the hearts of the Whole. Holding the Element of Earth, the truth is in our Hand. Our human perspective is never the whole picture. We can’t see the Whole Truth of “the other” when we step into their shoes. We’ve been given the Truth to see that all our failures are Common. We were all born Loving Love, and we were all held back by a Human Being trying to survive with some claim to happiness. Those that couldn’t see the future, settled for what the could take for themselves right now. If we’re Smart, we’ll see both sides – that we did it too. We never dream what our parents could be, down the road. We’re sure they are already there. Now we know. It’s a lifetime journey, and a “hard road” for every Human given the Power to Choose. We KNOW our limits by what we COULD have chosen. Like the children know, we know we could do better. How can we fix it now with so much water under the bridge?
CIB resides in the South, the direction of Human’s relationship with one another and with the Natural World. The South is where all the “tricksters” live that show us the Truth of our most limited resource of Truth. The Monkey could show us our “silly rules” for Love. (Like, “You have to say it first. And, if you don’t, you better say it After.”) At least the Raccoon still sees the treasure in us, and knows dirt is cleaned off with a little Water. The Love may not be “unconditional,” but human should at least get SOME credit for trying.
Forgiveness is the way we only have to try once to know the Truth. The dirt is washed from our eyes when we forgive. We created the veil with every thread we found that wasn’t exactly where it should be. When we were looking through that, we couldn’t see all the beauty we covered up. We didn’t want to see it because we were focused on the “injustice” of someone else’s Human Ways. Today, we can see both sides. Will we choose to leave another Human Being standing there with our mud on their face? Don’t we owe it to them to clean up our own mess? If we try it once, we’ll do it again for all the Love we See and Remember is still there inside. Isn’t that what we’ve been dreaming someone else could clean up and see in us again? We were growing by the Light we once saw in their eyes. We could see it again.
The Owl is the animal totem associated with CIB, as the mystic’s ferryman that can carry us to the “other side” of the River that’s flowing toward the Sea. Our vision was expanded by the Owl to see through the dark. EB is the Time and Place to see the Past for the Light of the Future. Many spiritual traditions revere the “ferryman” who steers the way, “holding the torch” to see the Truth of Love. We will be weighed for the fare. Our heart must be as light as a feather. To be One, a Human Being has to know the Truth of the Light in us all. We can only see it from another point of view. Only One knows a Reason we’ll open the door to know the Truth on the other side.
The Owl reminds us of all the treasures we left behind in the trash. We can go back to clean it up. All the BEST truth was left in the Past. Like Love, the treasure we buried everywhere when we couldn’t forgive. It’s time to do our homework. We have the Time and the Wisdom to go back NOW, and Save some Love we left behind. We were double-dipping our offerings of love for the “injustices” we saw going along. But, that doesn’t account for all the dirt we’ve thrown before we had the sense to create our new way. We don’t know the damage we’ve done. The only way is to fix it is to take the the whole blame we cast on others like us. We’re ALL better than that – at least we wanted to be. Some flew away from their dream a long time ago. Our Forgiveness could be the the speck they need to see. One Divine Thought is Hope that One can raise to Faith. With Faith, we look for the Truth we Want to Matter.
To all my relations, we can’t reach everyone we’ve hurt by our thoughts. The Wisest Choice we can make is to know we left a trail, before we knew what we were doing. We all did – thinking it was the “best we could do.” We weren’t thinking at all. We learned from Flint that Human holds the Obsidian Mirror. We can’t see the future in it, until we can see our Self and the picture we painted in our mind. It wasn’t a sitting portrait, but a snapshot. A picture of one moment they smiled, didn’t reveal the pain or the joy in the eyes.
May we pay the fare of Forgiveness, willingly with every last dollar we can give, knowing we’ve forgotten someone. Someone may choose to Master Life when they reach their own limits. May we double the fare for the ones forgotten, who may be climbing a steeper set of stairs. May we see Forgiveness as the very best Love ANY Human Being has to give. We saw the fault first, and stopped looking at Love. May we Forgive to shine the Speck of Joy that is a second chance. Forgiveness never means we accept the way that isn’t fair. We each have to follow our own course to Love. If someone else needs to turn around, a Divine Hand is the only one who can bail them out and turn them around. Humans have bailed us out before, and it didn’t change us. We have to See the Hand that we reach for when it’s Life or Death.
We won’t weigh a thing when we’re Balanced by the One to Zero… “loving each other, anyway”… any way we can, as often as we can remember. We can learn ways to Remember the choice for our greatest treasure.
In Lak’ech Ala K’in means I am like you, and you are like me. What the Truth means for Forgiveness is “You are my other me. What I do onto you, I do onto myself.” May we Love the Whole to Know we Love our Self.

6 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
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.
Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valiant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons. A good day to sit on a rock.
Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’: Symbol is the Owl is Arcturus, the brightest Star in the Constellation Bootes. The Cherokee Bear constellation (Ursa Major) includes the Big Dipper plus four stars in Bootes. Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear. Energy for deep thinkers, strong-willed, rigid convictions, bold and authoritative. Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.
