The Ups and Downs of Life All Around

El Castillo, Chichen Itza

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Our rough edges are worn down to perfect circles when we keep turning around the Light. Surrendering our life to a Hand Above is the only way to define an orbit that stays on-course to the beauty that can be at the end.  There’s not much good in trying to resist. We reach our highest end when we are willing to let go of how we think things should be.  It is what it is.

We create our own mountains or molehills, the same as those who built pyramids – to climb. There’s always Light when we reach the end of the journey. Calling it all “good” for a Divine Purpose is an expression of Love and Trust in the Words shared from Above.


Deuteronomy 31:6, “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you; he will not leave you or forsake you.”

Today, I’m grateful for the legacies of Love that share the perfect ways. The Truth shared thousands of years ago, still makes common sense. Our lives will always hold a Divine Meaning and Purpose when we stand for the Truth that holds the Power to carry on.

Buddhism is one of the world’s largest religions and originated 2,500 years ago in India. The Words of Truth still stand as cornerstones in all traditions of Faith that uphold the Law of the Golden Rule. The main principles of this belief system are karma, rebirth, and impermanence. Buddhists believe that life is full of suffering, but that suffering can be overcome by attaining enlightenment.

Truth that still makes Common Sense to the ends of Right Relationship

It takes lots of turns and many orbits to surrender to the Truth. Only a God of Unconditional Love offers a way for Human to ever become who we long to be. As long as we’re still climbing and turning to the One God who loves the whole, just the same, we’re carrying out the Divine Work of that was shared from the beginning as our Highest End. Time will always reveal the Truth at the end.

The Legend of the Three Wise Monkeys is a 400-year-old Japanese art originating from a 2,500-year-old Chinese code of conduct handed down by Confucius.

The Means to Resist Evil

Greed, anger and ignorance are identified as the Human limitations that give rise to evil. To discern the Truth we have to admit we don’t know a thing about the suffering that pushes Humans limits and leads to our downfall. If we can’t remember the 8 precepts, we can stand against the lies we accept as our “own truth of knowing” what anything means.

  • Hear no evil.
  • Speak no evil.
  • See no evil.

Ian Xel Lungold shared the way of knowing the Truth as focusing on “what is” at face value, and not “what we think about it.” Searching to find the quote I was led to Ian’s Journal on that documents the months of suffering that led to his end. Through it all, he invested his heart in sharing a way to overcome suffering.

WE create “evil” when we judge what we hear. We propagate “evil” when we spread the lies of a discernment we are incapable to make. We never know the cause that leads to the darkest expressions of who we are. We deny the Love within the Human seed, when we claim to our self that we’ve “seen evil” and defined it as the Truth of any one.

These are circles where Faith the Truth of Life can hardly carry on.  Only by walking in the shoes of another can we even come close to knowing the Truth as it Feels in another Human Heart.

Our worst enemies are likely the ones who are suffering the most. It’s not our place to judge, but to keep on turning around the Truth of the Light that promised to turn us all around to the Truth of Love that never ends. If it was True at the beginning, it will grow all the way to the end.

May we surrender to being turned every which way to reach the end of Beauty as we see it in Mother Earth. May we hear the Truth, Speak the Truth, and See nothing but the Truth. May we make the sacrifice of the Heart to face the facts of every matter to Feel the Truth for one another. I love Ian even more, remembering the suffering he endured to his end. His last Dream was to serve us in the down below among the Legion of Light – the wisdom of the Ancestors who walked this way before and guide a Divine Way, knowing how it feels to make Human’s journey through life.

love, in lak’ech,

6 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)

Galactic Tone 6: 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.

Flint/ETZNAB: Mirror of reality. As a struck flint, these persons are the divine sparks of intelligence. Flint’s innate abilities are utilized to discriminate emotions from fact. Flint persons stand tireless to protect, defend, or cure others by personal sacrifice. By courageously wielding the sword of truth, falsehoods are cut away. Flints, it was said, can receive information on inter-personal troubles or evil plots of others by reflecting in an obsidian mirror. Their valiant service as warriors of the truth must be impeccable or they will experience sufferings of accidents, misunderstandings and gossip.

Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA: Mirror, flint.  Ability to discern deception and mirror it back to the other.  A catalyst for change through this ability.  When used properly, harmonic resonance can be the result.  If you take on another’s issues through the mirror, the result will be anger, grief and misunderstanding of purpose.  All issues will surface and be mirrored in this earth walk.  Energy comparable for teaching, leader, philosopher, writer, observing the mass consciousness evolution in some manner.

[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.
