The most famous speech in “As You Like It is the Seven Ages of Man,” begins ‘All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players’ (Act 2, Scene 7). ~ Shakespeare
Though the truth is still debated, William Shakespeare was born April 23, 1564, Destiny Kin 11 Offering/MULUC. (He was baptized April 26, which many assume happened 3 days after his ACTUAL birthday.) If April 23rd IS the Truth, William Shakespeare was born and died on the same day, passing April 23, 1616. (By the Mayan cosmology of Time, 52 years of the Haab vague year (365 days) completes Human’s “first lifetime” on Earth.) “He was not of an age, but for all time!” exclaimed Ben Jonson in his poem “To the Memory of My Beloved, the Author Mr. William Shakespeare,” one of several dedicatory poems prefacing the great 1623 Folio of Comedies, Histories & Tragedies, the first collected volume of Shakespeare’s works.
He is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world’s greatest dramatist. Shakespeare’s work is the most widely published on the planet, 2nd to the Bible. His life and the inspiration for his work is still widely debated. Where did he get such wild stories of comedy and tragedy? He only answered, “hyperbole.”
Shakespeare is regarded as a Divine Offering – One that shared the Whole Truth about Human Beings. To speak Shakespeare’s words (written to be spoken aloud) holds the Power to Know and Share his Divine Genius.
The Maya celebrate N’oj as the Offering from Above – one that walked the same human road and knew the experience of Human Life just the same – though a demigod, when he was sent to share the Light of Consciousness and the Truth. N’oj shared the Wisdom of MANY things – science, the arts, all the academic knowledge on the planet. I can’t help wonder if Shakespeare was that Consciousness of N’oj that came for one lifetime to share the Truth about who we are, Above and Below – both sides of our Self.
Comedies and Tragedies are inspired by REAL LIFE experiences, if they are any good at all. We are engaged by the way we relate to an experience. It’s easier to see and feel Truth we see up on a stage, that we could never imagine could be the Truth of REAL Human Beings – the ones we know, and even our self.
It takes a comedy or a tragedy to see the Truth about our Self. Monkey/CHUEN applies Curiosity and a Sense of Humor to the end of Truth for every Creation. It takes something BIG to break us out of a pattern and rhythm of movement – to leap to the Higher Ground we’ve NEVER seen before – but NOW we know it’s True. We just don’t know HOW we carry on, until we’ve reached the “otherside.” THEN we see how we were doing it all along.
BELIEVE in the NEW Life that is born from EVERY seed, and how it takes several generations of our Self to Learn the Truth to Follow the Way. Count your Blessings for more than One Life given to the Light of Humanity. There IS a SECOND chance to live again – what feels like a Lifetime, when you know the mystery of Divine Justice is the Truth. Then EVERY Day is always and forever the end of happiness – joy, you LOVE so much, you could care less how long it took – because you KNOW it NOW, and FINALLY, you ARE living a new life – Here and Now and Always in the Moment. Divine Truth has to be that way, if we can imagine that Holy Ground – it can only be Higher than that.
The legend of N’oj is that he came for a Time and when he returned to the Place Above, he was promoted from a demi-god to the Highest God of Knowing. Human’s love science and math, though our favorite topic is our Self. Shakespeare was certainly a Divine Messenger – and like the Bible says, not one Divine Word should be changed by a jot or a tittle, so did Shakespeare leave as a Divine Warning in his own Epitaph – Shakespeare’s last words about his Own Truth:
GOOD FREND FOR IESVS SAKE FORBEARE
TO DIGG THE DVST ENCLOASED HEARE
BLESTe BE Ye MAN Yt SPARES THES STONES
AND CVRST BE HE Yt MOVES MY BONES
We are Divine Beings of the Whole of Humanity. Our Grandfathers and Grandmothers go ALL the way back to the beginning, and the same “before” in the up above. As Above, So Below. We are pieces of the all-in-one. Don Alejandro, the Highest Priest of the Indigenous Peoples, says, “We are fingers of the same Hand.” Count your blessings for the 93 years he has prayed for the Whole. Remember, he is WITH US NOW. He KNOWS when you Remember.
I’m grateful for SO MANY DIVINE WAYS – that we Know the Truth beyond Human’s understanding.

6 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee, Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB)
Galactic Tone 6: Flow. 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.
Crocodile/IMIX: Crocodile receives messages of primal creative force; simply the beginning of all things. Crocodiles who follow their hearts are seen as genius. There is no order to the primal messages, so Crocodile persons should direct their energies toward practical and cooperative efforts to bring productive results. Crocodiles have a strong nurturing energy and will work hard to provide security to family and friends. Being extremely territorial, Crocodiles must watch not to be over protective or too dominating. While in these states, Crocodiles are insecure, indecisive and emotionally volatile.
Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB: Turtle Island; direction East. The Turtle Constellation Orion, one of three stars in the Cosmic Egg. In Mayan is the Cosmic Hearth. Turtle is the Energy of Creative force at the one-on-one, personal level; dawn, awakening, birth. The beginning of each new era, this star in Orion appears with the rising Sun, heralding the creation of a new World cycle. Cherokee, IMIX- Totem-Dragon. The energy to understand all things sacred; creation energy, connection for visions, to learn the mysteries of the Universal Knowledge. The dragon carries the source energy of life, revered in ancient cultures for power and wisdom.
