THE TRECENA OF DOG/OC: A JOURNEY TO LOVE
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 4 is a force of Stability that lays a foundation for Spiritual Growth. Tone 4 builds the Pillars of Faith for the Dream of our Creation. Tone 4 is represented as the Cube, the most stable of all forms. The boundaries and parameters define a body of thought as the “rules of our game.”
The Saints reminded us that Life is worth fighting for to the end. They witnessed the Truth of Life and Death and share the Wisdom of the Experience. In the Remembering, we’re guided to claim the Life that carries on.
Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light of Family and Home with particular interest on the Children of a New Generation. When we create a Family, the Light of New Possibilities inspires us to walk the walk. Reed/BEN is that state of mind Human holds to share a Light of Wisdom with the next generation. Whether they are our own children or not, a Spark within wants to share an easier way we learned by our own experience.
The glyph illustrates an altar with channels to a Light of Divine Communion, shining on the thatched prayer mats below. An altar is the place for an Offering, where we count our blessings in Humility. Reed/BEN holds very high expectations and Faith to believe in our own Truth. Though, Patience is required to see the Light we were intended to share.
Reed/BEN comes with a lesson to lead with a “garden hose” and not with a “steel pipe.” We aren’t intended to share our Own Truth for everyone else to believe. We are meant to share the “Power of Believing in our own Divine Communion and Answered Prayers.” We pour out the Blessings of Light when we See and Acknowledge the Light of Divine Wisdom held in EVERY heart.
Children can teach us a thing or two. They hold the Wisdom of Innoscence to believe in their Dreams. We teach them “not to believe” in themselves when we use a “steel pipe.” Children thrive when someone Sees and Acknowledges how “bright” they are.
I was a caretaker when my children were small. It was hard not to jump in and save them when they put a homework project off until the last moment. A smart counselor offered me another perspective. When we jump in to fix something, we are saying, “this is something you can’t do by yourself.” We have to allow children the experiences to learn the Truth of a world below. Humility is the only way. The “lead pipe” is “I told you so.” The “garden hose” is “What would you recommend as a better way?” Humility Feels like Unconditional Love to a child.
