Greetings Beloved Kin,
Everything Human knows was learned from Mother Earth. She is the Creator’s dynamic expression of the Truth and the Laws of the Universe. She is the “control,” the standard for comparison. In our study of the Universe, we expect the truth to comply with all the elements and forces that apply to her. When they do, a theory is discerned to be the truth.
Earth is the consolidated Truth of everything. All the pieces and parts have something to share. We learn from the birds and the bees, and we can learn from one another. If you look at Earth from the highest scale, we’re born of her matter from dust to dust. We’re the highest creation on the food chain, and the life sustained by all her Truth of Being.
Tone 2 turns raises the thoughts of Duality, Human’s nature. We learn by comparing one thing to another. We have to see things more than twice to resolve the Truth. Though, we can see something over and over again and not comprehend the Truth we don’t want to know.
The glyph illustrates human’s Divine way to Know the Truth of every possibility. The straight line begins from the East as our “first light” of knowing. The line represents our first faculty to perceive “what it is” from an objective/linear point of view. If we think we know what it is, we unconsciously rely on our past observation. When we “see something new” the straight line automatically turns to our imagination. We go round and round and back and forth to make sense of “what it means.” If we only think twice the question trails off into the darkness of the unknown. The rising circles represent the Divine Truths that rise like bubbles in thin air. If we take a leap of faith and ASK to know, we WILL know in Time.
It takes Time to know by our own experience. The Divine Creator allows us to see the same experience again and again until it’s personal, like a matter of life or death. Then, we’re willing to put our heart on the line, to “clearly see” the Truth of a matter.
CABAN is one of those Times. Night/AKBAL raised the Truth of our Heart’s Desire, as the Dream the Creator intended from the beginning. Every round of the Tzolk’in we see something new, as something old from a new perspective. Everything was possible in the Dream. But then we “wake up” from a realm Above into the realm below, where the illusions of the world tells us – it may be true for someone else, but we are the exception to the rule. Thoughts imposed by others tell us we’re not enough, or we don’t deserve for our Dreams to come true. WHY? “It wouldn’t be fair.” If they haven’t reached their highest dream, then “who are we to think we’re enough?” Our unconscious thoughts of the Ego are more than happy to fill in the “logic” that it’s the Truth as the Ego only sees all the reasons “we’re better” and “we deserve it” more than the other. Those are the passing thoughts that veil the Truth that’s now Unknown, because we “only saw it in a dream.” They are NOT the thoughts shared by the Creator. We have to live and learn to let them go, and follow them no more. We’re still inspired by the Light. That’s when we need to run with a Dream with all our Heart, while we still remember how we felt when we knew the Vision was the Truth. We have to run like our Life depends on it while we have the chance to reach the end.
CABAN represents the Heart of the Mother that burns with the Element of Fire. CABAN is the Force of Life that initiates every Great Migration on Earth. CABAN rings the bell like a clarion call from Above to Move with all our Heart. The Wildebeests receive a vision of greener pastures from a sense in the Air and a burning desire to support the Life of the calf that is growing within.
The Heron is the Cherokee symbol as a nahaul that lives a life of perpetual movement. “Home” is the next place they sense that they need to be. The Heron is the same symbol as the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of its past… born through Fire to Live Again. CABAN is a Day we are guided by a Fire from the Heart of Earth and the Wind from the Heart of Sky that accelerates our passion to live. Be forewarned, “Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.” Mother Earth has the power to move the whole. In 2020, she had the power to “send us all to our room” in the Haab year 9 Earth/CABAN.
The K’iche Day Sign is N’oj (n ‘oh), a Sacred Word for the Consciousness of Knowing. The glyph illustrates the face of a newborn. We were born knowing with a passion to know everything we could learn from a brand new life in a new realm of being. By the K’iche (kee chee) tradition, the directions of experience turn the other way. Counterclockwise, the directions from the East turn North as the wisdom of innocence, believing what they feel. In the West they discover the Truth Unknown from an open perspective. They carry the wisdom into the down below, the South, to apply the Truth for the Creation of Right Relationship. They are the innoscents in the world that still believe a handshake is a promise. In the North we believed the same when we were children, but we “had more sense” by worldly standards to only believe what we could see with our own two eyes. We fool our self, if we “think we’ve seen it all” and “know everything there is to see.” Over Time we’ve lost our Faith to Believe. It’s easier to “be smart” and take what you can get and offer “thoughts and prayers” to everyone else. Prayers are only answered when we uphold the Golden Rule and Love is the Truth and the reason we ask. The world is caught up in illusions of the Ego, in an endless circle that goes around and around without ever reaching the Highest End of Life, Love, and Happiness for the Whole. We’re all caught up in the Human race to nowhere. It takes a leap of faith to expand our Divine Possibilities.
The thoughts of all there is yet to know engages us to take leaps of faith. Even our Ego is engaged for the chance to be “the first to know.”
The Myth of N’oj was that of a demi-god chosen to bring Divine Knowledge and Wisdom from Above to the Human Beings Below. Many demi-gods submitted their applications. To everyone’s surprise, N’oj was the one chosen – never presenting himself, but watching the “campaign” among the rest. The one best suited would need to take an unassuming form, to appear like they were another human being. N’oj shared knowledge about Human Nature and the Natural World. When the work was finished, N’oj returned to the Up Above and was promoted to a higher position in the celestial hierarchy. By the cosmology of the Maya, the Creator sends Angels among us who share knowledge in a way we never forget. I’ve wondered about the Masters in various fields of study, like Einstein or Shakespeare, and other “human” masters who’s work established a worldly standard. If they had to live like humans, they had to die like humans, too.
The Aztec sign is the Ollin, which simply means Movement. The Ollin symbol is positioned in the center of the Aztec calendar, marketing 20 Divine Times of Knowing. They describe the day as a Time of knowing who we are becoming and call it a very bad day for the “passive principle” and a very auspicious day for the “active principle.” This is not a day to “go along” with the illusions imposed by the world, but to rise again to live for the dream in our heart.
If you are stuck thinking you don’t know what to do, remember the Dog is the highest standard for Love. What would a dog do if they faced your challenges time and time again and heard a call of Love? Tone 2 presents the choice “To be or not to be.” “That is the question,” posed by Shakespeare.
We are the Hero we’ve been waiting for. We were born to save our self and the whole from going around in circles without ever reaching a higher end.
in lake’ch, I am you

2 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
Earth/Caban: Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.
Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way. “The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Egyptian Phoenix. (Cherokee Astrology: Animal, Medicine in the Stars, Raven Hall)
