THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX: CREATING A LIFE FROM SPIRIT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
4 Earth / CABAN
Tone 4 raises an Intention of Stability. In the 4th Hour of the Light, the Maya surveyed the field of corn to measure the work at hand. Tone 4 is related to the cube, an area defined by its borders and parameters. For a Harvest of Higher Consciousness, we choose the body of thought that will support the Dream of Harmony and Equity.
Tone 4 reflects the Pillars of Faith that can stand in all 4 directions, when we begin the journey with a roadmap to the end. We can choose the “rules of our game” as the Divine Thoughts we will turn to for circumstances that present themselves from each direction. (East=Divine Inspiration… we can PLAN to follow the thought to receive more than our first impression. South=Relationships on Earth… we can LISTEN to really hear what’s going on around us. West=Unknown Future… we can face the Unknown, remembering how anything is still possible. North=Wisdom… we can Remember to Forgive our Self as we are reaching for something we haven’t learned yet by our own experience.)
We may have tried before, but we haven’t tried since we Ascended the last Tzolk’in round. When we employ the Sense to LOOK AROUND, we’ll know we hold enough Divine Thoughts to maintain an orbit.
Earth/CABAN represents Mother Earth as a “body in perpetual motion.” Mother Earth is defined by her orbit. To know her, she must be seen as she sways through the Seasons. It takes an entire orbit to know her whole story. Through the witness of Mother Earth’s movement and Her Time, the Maya conceived the Human gestation period as Our Orbit of completion. The Maya attribute everything known to Human Beings is learned from Mother Earth. CABAN represents the Mother’s Perpetual Movement, creating Life and Time.
Earth is a Divine Mother with a duty to raise us up. She demonstrates the way to create the “Time of our Life.” There are 3 symbols in the glyph that guide the way for Discernment and Divine Wisdom. When we employ all 3 faculties of thought, we will always arrive at the Highest Answer. The 1st thought is the straight line – human’s linear thoughts of “objective consciousness,” our 1st impression of “what is.” That leads to the wavy line, Human’s imagination. We THINK we know what “it is” and imagine “what it means.”
That’s as far as Human’s Sense of Reason goes, until we Consciously apply the Truth of a Divine Provision. The circles that rise are Divine Thoughts, wholly apart from Human “sense” – Truth beyond our Imagination. Between the wavy line and the rising circles is the Time and Place for a Leap of Faith. If we THINK ABOUT IT, it’s ALWAYS WISE to ASSUME the Truth, “We DON’T KNOW IT ALL.”
The Aztec Day Sign is the Ollin, that simply means Movement. The Ollin is the symbol at the center of the Stone calendar. Ollin marks 20 Divine Places in Time… Times to Move. We can ALWAYS know more with Time and Experience. To create NEW Time and NEW experiences, we HAVE to keep moving on. With every Truth we claim, we’ll need to lean a little the OTHER way to hold the Balanced perspective.
