Greetings Beloved Kin,
It’s hard to believe in anything that wasn’t “the Faith of our Fathers.” Our “first light” of Knowing the Divine Truth was learned as the “Only One.” And, the Truth is, even our “Only One” is hard to believe as a Truth we Know with all our heart. My personal discernment on the matter is that every “Only One Truth” was given in every Time and Place as every one’s “true standard for comparison.” The more I’ve compared other traditions of faith, the more I see the Creator’s Word is the same – only written in another language and from a different perspective. I can see through “the Faith of my Fathers” that the Truth stands forever and can never be changed. We’re ALL “right” about the Creator’s Highest Intention and the Divine Design for Love that leads us all to the Beauty of a Divine Balance in the end.
The Book of Revelations is credited to John of Patmos, widely considered to be John the Baptist. It was written from a “dark night of the soul.” The Voice that spoke in his dream was a vision of the Truth shared by the Lord of Creation, given with the Instructions to write it down, and share the Truth with the Whole. Revelations represents the Creator’s last word on the topic of our Salvation. As the “faith of my Fathers” do the children of my “first faith” believe it was the Truth? If so, a Divine Communion shared through Visions and Voices in our Dreams was Truth we were intended to Know are True.
Revelations 1:1-8 – NKJV
1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: 1:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy*, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

* Revelations 1:3 NIV – Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.
The Creator’s Last Words of Truth were intended to be Spoken, As Above, So Below. Does your “first Faith” include the Creator’s Final Word on the matter of our Life Beyond Death, and the Way to Know a place is promised “on the other side?” The Place to turn to know the Truth, with the smallest chance of doubt surely lies in “the faith of our Fathers” in Harmony and Equity with the Whole. A Divine Creator knew we would face a greater challenge to Discern the Truth if the Source was beyond the First Truth we knew in our Heart.
St John’s “dark night” came while he was exiled as a result of anti-Christian persecution under the Roman emperor. His darkest hour was a “question of his faith.”
Early tradition says that John was banished to Patmos by the Roman authorities. This tradition is credible because banishment was a common punishment used during the Imperial period for a number of offenses. Among such offenses were the practices of magic and astrology. Prophecy was viewed by the Romans as belonging to the same category, whether Pagan, Jewish, or Christian. Prophecy with political implications, like that expressed by John in the Book of Revelation, would have been perceived as a threat to Roman political power and order.

The One Truth of Faith that I could never reconcile, that there was Only One that was worthy to Stand. A Divine Father of my understanding would never place such slim odds on the Hope of our Salvation. It didn’t make sense that a Loving God would be standing at the Pearly Gates and say, “Sorry, you stumbled in to the “wrong” path while you were reaching to know me.”
We can be the Voice that Speaks the Truth so we can hear. We can create the Sound and Vibration of the Creator’s Last Words of Truth and the way to cross the great divide that leads us all to the “other side.”
By the Mayan cosmology, to speak the words, to carry out through movement the rituals and ceremonies, and to sing the songs, was to raise the Wisdom of the Ancestors to Life again in a “living body” of Consciousness. The Wisdom of ALL the Saints that reached to know the Creator before, is the all-in-one Wisdom of the Ages. There’s no end to the Mysteries we could Know, when we Remember, and bring them to Life again through the Spoken Word and the Acts of Love that create Movement and Sound in the down below.

The Runes are among the most ancient symbols and languages. The meanings are illustrated through the direction of the angles that point in different directions. The Truth that is absolute as the Creator’s promise is illustrated by straight lines. The runes with curved lines represent an act of faith that must be carried out as an Act of Human Will. Algiz is the symbol of a Divine Awakening, beyond Human’s Will to carry out, an “Act of God” that is “finished” from Above.
8 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, HEARTH/O’YA)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below”. From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “Neat Freaks”.
Night/Akbal: Bringers of the Dawn. Dreamers who bring the new sun to clarify and illuminate the road of life. Thus the insecurities and doubts born of darkness of the sub-conscious mind are dispelled. These persons travel the Void. a place where nothing yet exists but all potential dwells, the womb of creation. From this void, Night persons bring forth new solutions and artistic inspiration. Night’s voyages of dreams build confidence and happiness with a sense of well being. If night does not bravely journey into the void they may find themselves wandering the darkness of self doubt and insecurity.
Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA: Hearth’s symbol is the fire pit in the Center, velvet black as the night. The triangle in Orion. The M42 nebula (home of the Central race from the WingMakers) in the center of the triangle of Orion is the fire in the Hearth, also matching the Mayan. The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night. Belief is so strong that the surrounding elements become entrained to their rhythm and all resistance falls away. With respect and honor of intuition combined with knowledge this energy creates the magic of the center in this dimension. AKBAL-Night-Totem-OWL: Guardian of the Night Sun. Energies for the opening of mystic secrets, seeing through the masks of deception, trickery. High ability of discernment. Portals open to other worlds and dimensions for your learning and spiritual growth. Magical abilities are possible.
