Greetings Beloved Kin,

12 Wisdom/CIB

The Owl is the totem and symbol of Wisdom/CIB (keeb). The Owl’s vision is as clear as the Eagle, with the power to see through the darkness and the capability to see what’s behind. CIB reminds us that our past is an archeological treasure. When we resolve the Truth of the Past, we can change the Present to create the Future of our Dreams.

CIB reflects the mind in it’s highest state of consciousness. The glyph illustrates the Mind emanating the rays of Truth and Light. The only way to see clearly is to Forgive the past. Forgiveness is the “Key to the Kingdom” of Love, Life, and Happiness all around. When we hold resentments we filter Love out of the picture. We don’t deserve to be unhappy. We all deserve to be seen and acknowledged for the Whole Truth of Love. Forgiveness is the Offering that proves we’re enough, in spite of our Human limitations. I’ve never been forgiven of a failure that I didn’t thank God for it. Forgiveness means a second chance.

The Highest One never saw the fault, only the Time it takes to Live and Learn. We seldom do things right the first time. We’re bound to fail even if we are “perfect.” If we do everything “right,” odds are good that we’ll fall into pride, thinking everyone else should be as “good” as we are. We have to join the Human Race and admit we don’t know everything, until we’ve known the experience for our self.

Tone 12 raises the Intention of Understanding. We don’t have to agree to Understand. It takes lots of failures to “know how it feels.” The Sacred Exchange for Choosing to see is the Gift of Compassion. It’s worth the cost for the way we see our Self. We can know something without comprehending a lick of truth. The “ah-ha moment” is Truth we saw along the way. Retrospection is the Gift to bring the Truth to Light.

The Owl is a reflection of “the mystic ferryman that holds a torch aloft on the passage to the other side.” Forgiveness is the fare to cross with a “heart as light as a feather.”

We see clearly when we’ve forgiven. Love is forever. When we look we’ll find the treasure.

Wisdom is not a “body of knowledge.” Wisdom is the application of the Truth. We only have to Ask the Highest One for Love to be revealed.

Wisdom/CIB connects us to the Old Ones. This is a day to remember their Wisdom for Right Relationship. Someone taught us the Golden Rule. The Common Dream we share is that after we’re gone, someone will remember we loved. That’s the only Truth that matters. We fail one another all the time when we forget our greatest work of Creation.

We’re all Human, a Divine Link in the Circle of Life and in our Family Tree. These days it feels hard to hold a family together. It takes forgiveness to create the ties that bind. Truth is the only way to see.

In John’s book of Revelations it says that God hates evil. We can hate it too, and still love the Human that doesn’t know what they are doing. Forgiveness is not acceptance. A choice to carry on is still ours to make for our Highest Sense of Well-being. Happiness is worth the cost, if we have to go our own way.

To all my relations, may we ask the Highest One to share a way for Right Relationship. May we remember to forgive our Self as we forgive the Whole. May we never give up the Intention to Forgive until we reach the end.  We deserve to be happy in Right Relationship with one another and with the Natural World.

CIB holds the Element of Earth that shares the tangible Truth we can experience with all our senses. May we be grounded by the Truth of Love, the Highest Power for Happiness that only grows with time, when we forgive, and remember.

in lak’ech, i am another you

I’m grateful for second chances offered from Above, and Below.

Árbol del Tule – Santa Maria del Tule, a nearby village of Oaxaca, MX, is home to a 2,000 year-old living tree. It is revered as Sacred, grown from the first seed planted by the god of Wind. It holds the widest berth of any tree in the world. Once thought to be many trees in one, dna testing proved it was One.  Some honor a myth it is the original “tree of life” for the images of living creatures seen in its wood. For centuries humans have come to rest their thoughts upon this gathering of Life.

12 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)

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.

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’   O’JJ: 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.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]
