THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK GUIDES A WAY
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
7 Reed / BEN
On Peak Tone 7 we complete Human’s climb of Spiritual Growth. Deer/MANIK inspires a Divine Meaning and Purpose for our Life. MANIK guides a way of Vigilant Consciousness to carry out a Mission of Love. From the top of the pyramid we have a 360 degree view of “all that is” and “all that is not.” On Tone 7 we have the Vision of Hindsight to look back and see a Divine Meaning Purpose.
As we approach the Zenith Hour, we have the Light to see what we might accomplish by the end of day. It’s the natural Time to stop working to take nourishment. How many times can you remember the thoughts? You now have a system in place, an assembly line for the creation at hand. You think about the flow and what you expect to accomplish. We see the truth of progress and the future of our creation. If you look even closer, you’ll see that you choose the end. Unless we are interrupted by extraordinary circumstances, we stop at the ending we imagined.
Tone 7 is a Day of Divine Illumination, marking the Great Law of Creation, “As Above, So Below.” It means that whatever is created in one realm of Consciousness will be balanced in all others. The Highest Altar at the top of the pyramid lies above the canopy as the threshold between the Above and the Below. Our climb of Divine Intention is the Offering of Atonement, the Highest Consciousness of a Sacred Exchange.
Deer/MANIK has led us to the Light of an Altar. Reed/BEN is the guiding Light for family and home. Reed/BEN is observed as a day to offer a Blessing for Home. On Reed/BEN, the Maya acknowledge community as extended family. It’s a day to check in with the neighbors to lend a hand. Reed/BEN guides a way of Belonging.
Reed/BEN illustrates an altar with 2 channels of Light descending from Above, and 2 prayer mats Below where Human kneels in Humility. Reed is a channel through which Human enters into Divine Communion with the Creator. The Elders say that to open the channel, Human must become the “hollow bone.” To see the Truth of Divine Possibilities, the “human flesh” must be burned away.
Reed/BEN elevates our thoughts to Higher Expectations. Human’s journey toward a Dream of Creation ends in the place defined by Human limitation. Just like we stop at the end of the day, we defined the future by what Human was able to accomplish. On Tone 7 we are given the Reflection for a Leap of Faith. At the threshold, the Maya imagine a Reflection Above and Below. We could follow the stairs that descend back into the illusion of our Human limits, or we can Leap across the dimension of Spirit to for even Higher Ground of a Sacred Exchange.
The Jaguar guards in stealth the threshold to the Holy of Holies. Expressing our Gratitude for what God can do, we’ll receive the Divine Inspiration of Answered Prayers. There is a Time for every Purpose. There’s a Time for Faith, and a Time for Human to See, Feel, and Believe.
