THE TRECENA OF SERPENT/CHICCHAN: GIFTS OF SPIRIT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 8 is the Holy Day of the trecena. Number 8 is defined by the Maya as the Intention of “pure spirit.” Tone 8 holds the Intention of Divine Justice, through the Harmony and Equity of the Whole.
Tone 8 begins the Transformation phase of the trecena, under the direction of Divine Agency. Through an Investment of Heart and Soul we crossed the threshold from the Holy of Holies into the Divine Sanctuary Above. We were made One through an Offering of Time, and the Intention of Love.
We climbed to Human’s limit, as High as the Maya could reach beyond the canopy. One pyramid was built over another. The Ones that came before, paved the way. In the Offering of Our Truth to know the Highest Truth, the Living hold the Power to reach Higher Ground. We have to have our Own Way for the Consciousness of Humanity to expand to Higher Wisdom.
Road/EB is Human’s Road of Destiny that connects the Whole. We feel our place in the Whole, walking in the footsteps of wisdom passed down before. This is a day to honor the foundations of Truth and Wisdom that can only be learned from the “hard road.” When we’ve conquered the Truth Below, we’ll know the Truth Above. One is a Reflection of the Other. The “other” is a Reflection of the One.
The Road of Destiny is illustrated on Human’s head. In the end, we’ll be defined by all the Choices we make. That’s the Truth of Life and Destiny. “Human” is another name for EB. Residing in the South, we are drawn to the Truth of Right Relationship, with one another and the Natural World. Today we are given the Divine Sense to know we are One in a tangible way. The Element of Earth can ground us to the Truth.
HOLY OBSERVANCE: DAY OF DESTINY
Most of the Holy Observances fall on Tone 8, with the exception of the Initiation of the Mayan Priestess on 9 Monkey/CHUEN. Tone 8 represents the 8th Hour of Light. The 8th Hour begins when Human’s Zenith Hour is over. Our Offering to the Highest One is to See and Acknowledge that the Road was cleared before. Our way is easier, though the challenge will always be the same. This is a day to Acknowledge the Whole – every One who walked the Road, even if their greatest accomplishment was survival. There would always be one waiting for the next to follow. Our Mothers, Fathers, Grandfathers, and Grandmothers are still serving us. We see Our future, and beauty we should create NOW. Today we Feel the Gratitude for our Life. We are grounded by the tangible experience of Earth. We thought we were ALL One. Now we Know by the Truth we hold in Common.
