Saṃsāra (Sanskrit: संसार, Pali: saṃsāra; also samsara) in Buddhism and Hinduism is the beginningless cycle of repeated birth, mundane existence and dying again. Samsara is considered to be dukkha, suffering, and in general unsatisfactory and painful, perpetuated by desire and avidya (ignorance), and the resulting karma.
Rebirths occur in six realms of existence, namely three good realms (heavenly, demi-god, human) and three evil realms (animal, ghosts, hellish). Samsara ends if a person attains nirvana, the “blowing out” of the desires and the gaining of true insight into impermanence and non-self reality. Wikipedia
1 Star/LAMAT (la ‘maht), Cherokee, Rabbit/NOQUI’SEGWA, Destiny Kin 248
March 7, 2023 (03/07/2023)
Greetings Beloved Kin,
Star/LAMAT is symbolized by Venus, the Light to see the Truth of Divine Timing. ALL Time has a Divine Meaning and Purpose. From a Universal Perspective, Time goes on forever. From Human’s perspective time is limited to a Lifetime of Experience. We think we can Save Time, Rush Time, Extend Time and Delay Time. Though, Time keeps marching on, ordered by a Supreme Lord of Creation who manifested a Divine Meaning and Purpose for every moment.
We can’t See Time, yet Time is central to every discernment we make about our life, the value, and the meaning and purpose of every moment.
“Handbook to Higher Consciousness” by Ken Keyes, Jr was the first book recommended to me at the beginning of a Spiritual Journey to know the meaning and purpose of my life. The intention of the author was to share the wisdom of Taoism and Buddhism into a western framework of thought. I still remember an Intention that was given to consider ALL Time from the very beginning. It was hard to imagine how ALL Time could have anything to do with my life, in the here and now. I didn’t “get it.” The exercise felt like a waste of time.
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”
It takes the experience of ALL Time to see the Beauty in the Balance. The season of bliss shown at the top of the Bhavachakra “Wheel of Life.” By Human discernment, this is the “time of our life” we are always reaching to know as the highest end of our heart’s desire. Only, it takes the experience of ALL the times of our life to ever be Truly Conscious of the Beauty we imagine it could be. It takes all time and every experience to share the blessing in Integrity and in Right Relationship with the whole.
The Realm of the Gods (Devas) is the highest realm of the Wheel of Life and is always depicted at the top of the Wheel.
The Realm of the Gods (Devas) sounds like a nice place to live. And, no question, you can do a lot worse. But even the Realm of the Gods isn’t perfect. Those born in the God Realm live long and pleasure-filled lives. They have wealth and power and happiness. So what’s the catch?
The catch is that because the Devas have such rich and happy lives they don’t recognize the truth of suffering. Their happiness is, in a way, a curse, because they have no motivation to seek liberation from the Wheel. Eventually, their happy lives end, and they must face rebirth in another, less happy, realm.

Our resistance to ALL the experiences of life is the Intention that creates the “hampster’s wheel” of slavery to claim Happiness without the Investment of our Heart to see the Truth of the way to Realize the Truth of the blessing. Our Human ego, is never satisfied with “enough.” Only “more than enough” becomes the Highest Object of our Human affections.
Happiness is enough, when we’ve known sorrow. Having enough to live is never enough, until we’ve had to get by with what we considered less than enough to hold faith in tomorrow. As beings of duality, we can’t know anything without the experience of both ends of the scale. To know the highest extreme of happiness, we have to know the farthest extreme on our own scale of discernment. Peace of Mind and our Sense of Equilibrium is found in the center, the axis mundi where we hold the wisdom to claim the blessing that all things and every experience of life is serving a Divine meaning and purpose.
Happiness isn’t “right or wrong,” and neither is pain and suffering. All things create and serve the purpose of one thing and another. Peace of Mind is our highest state of Consciousness.
A New Year will begin when the Sun shines in the zenith, a day intended to see the beauty of the Whole, without the shadows that were created from the world below. By the Northern Count of the Haab, the Day of No Shadows falls on March 31, 2023.
Peace of Mind is a Divine Discernment of Divine Time that holds a meaning and purpose for every experience. Human’s race against Time is a matter of the discernment of Life and Death. Without faith that our Consciousness is a Gift that lasts forever, we turn life into Human’s Race to wrestle all the happiness we can before an end. Energy can never be lost. The energy of Consciousness transcends ALL Time. It can only be exchanged between one realm an another.
God isn’t a slave driver. God is a Miracle worker. A Divine Creator uses the Seen and Unseen forces that are the Laws of the Universe to guide us toward our Highest Discernment of the Truth.
The Truth was written in the Seasons of every orbit of the planetary experience of the Whole on Mother Earth. Time was written within our own biological clock that guides us to follow the experience of Time that can’t be changed by Human’s Will. We have no choice but to cease growing in the Winter for Time that was intended to go within to grow from the inside out, through our Dreams for the brighter days that are promised in the Spring.
The Time to Stop is the Time to Look to See that dark times will come and go. We never experience Spring without the discernment of another chance to realize again, like the first time, how beautiful Life can be. We find Beauty again in the smallest things, like the buds on a tree that prove there will be another harvest at the end of Summer’s Light.
Human’s Will holds no power to change the seasons, the tides, nor the momentum of Universal Forces beyond the range of Human’s Understanding. Life will always be a mystery, until we see the End is only another Beginning for Beauty, like the first time when we were born from the darkness and peace of the womb into the Light that revealed new possibilities to know what we never imagined before.
Not one experience of Life is intended to go on forever, but only long enough for us to See and Acknowledge the Beauty as we were Intended to know it – a Blessing that was promised through the experience of ALL Time that is shared from Above.
Time was set into motion by the Creator’s Breath. Like the Wind of a Hurricane, Human holds no power to turn it around to spin another way.
We can end the Human race against time that only makes us a slave to an Intention we will never carry it its end of Peace and Happiness.
May we take some Time Off when we can’t see what it is that we need to do. A Divine Creator will always share the Inspiration for Happiness when we take the time for a Divine Communion with the One Above. The Jaguar’s “earth magic” to enter the realm of the Holy of Holies is to Count our Blessings for ALL Things that are One in a Divine Design “to be” and Live in peace and Right Right relationship with the whole.
Every moment we spend in Consciousness of a Higher Power that is the Authority of Creation, is the way to know the darkness of today is leading us to the highest discernment of Beauty we will know tomorrow. We hold the power to create the beauty of tomorrow, when we are humbled enough to give thanks for Today.
Quotes by Ken Keys, Jr:
- A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world.
- You are not responsible for the programming you picked up in childhood. However, as an adult, you are one hundred percent responsible for fixing it.
- You add to the suffering in the world when you take offense, just as much as you do when you give offense.
- By fully tuning in to the now moment in your life, you will discover that you always have enough to enjoy every moment of your life. The only reason you have not been happy every instant is that you have been dominating your consciousness with thoughts about something you don’t have- or trying to hold on to something that you do have but which is no longer appropriate in the present flow of your life.
May we call upon the Highest Power to guide us to Give Back and Pay Forward the experience of Happiness and Peace on Earth that was intended for everyone to know in Harmony and Equity. May we celebrate the balance that requires no Human effort than to “allow all things to be.” We really don’t have any other choice, for what the Creator’s Will intended to be.
Considering ALL Time and a Life that goes on forever, what a blessing it could be to live in the heavenly realm where we can look down to see that someone we Loved found their own way because of the Words of Wisdom of Love we shared so they could find their way out of darkness and in to the Truth of the Light. Love doesn’t end. Love is the Divine Force that creates Beauty that will go on forever.
Love is the memory that never loses its shine. The beauty only grows every time we look back to see it again.
Star/LAMAT holds position 8, the Creator’s Intention for Divine Justice as Peace and Happiness as the Divine Balance and the Sum of the Whole. The symbol Delta is a mathematical symbol of the “sum of the whole” that reflects the Divine Trinity, a choice to live in agreement with the Creator’s Divine Design for our Life in gratitude for every Moment it takes to know the Truth of the Whole Creation. There is always beauty in the moment, when we’re willing to Look to See.
May we celebrate every Sunrise that reminds us of a New Beginning, and claim the Truth was shared in a Dream where we existed in Unity with the Consciousness of the Highest one – a realm where all things are possible. We weren’t intended to remember the end. We were given the choice to create the end that we would Love the most – a choice to create the reality of our own Heart’s Desire.
May we never long for time to fly by to the end of happiness. May we give thanks for the Mystery and the Gift of ALL the Time it takes to know. May we count our blessings for all the Seasons of our Life.
much love, in lak’ech,
Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN

THE TRECENA OF STAR/LAMAT: LIGHT MULTIPLIED TO ABUNDANCE

1 Star/LAMAT (Cherokee, Rabbit/TAKATO’KA)
Galactic Tone 1: Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.
Star/LAMAT: Star energy is multiplication of all things to abundance. Star has been associated with the fertility of rabbits for its ability to multiply. As each sun in the sky, Star persons shine equally in all directions. This natural tendency of harmony and balance can become compulsion, motivating Star to be too agreeable and too generous, rejected gifts cause fear and resentment. When a Star believes it has been given too much, they are weakened or may even collapse. In this “Black Hole” state, Stars are prone to verbal jousting and arguing to force their point of view on everyone.
Cherokee, Rabbit/NOQUI’SEGWA: Symbol-Venus, The Morning Star cycle of 260 days and Evening Star cycle of another 260 days, inspired the 13 numbers, 20 Day sign Sacred Calendar. Rabbit is the Trickster of Cherokee culture, matching the Coyote in other nations. The personification of Light and New Life, Sunrise, the scion (a first-generation descendant) of the Moon-Father of earth children, the Rabbit is fertility, be fruitful and multiply. Represents softness, gentleness and vulnerability. LAMAT– Totem Rabbit. Energies of re-birth, regeneration, ripening, harvest and abundance. This person is overflowing with love energy in all areas of life. Spiritual growth is natural and with ease due to the unconditional love energy that flows.
