THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK GUIDES A WAY
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
4 Dog / OC
Tone 4 holds the Intention of Stability. Compared to the cube, Tone 4 establishes the boundaries and parameters to uphold the Intentions of our Creation. On Tone 4 we measure the scale and dimension to size up the task. We establish the “rules of the game,” We are guided to consider the obstacles, a strategy, and a blueprint for a foundation.
Our Intention is to create a dedicated practice for a Divine Communion of Love. We are changed by the Power of Love. Love will Divinely lead the way on the Road of our Destiny. We are faced with the Highest Scale of Creation, to manifest Harmony and Equity for the Whole of Humanity.
Our first assessment of the creation may be the Time it could take. How will we carry on? How will we move on beyond a “meeting of the minds” to lay the groundwork for our Happiness in the Future?
Dog/OC is the archetype of Unconditional Love. The Dog holds affinity with the Monkey/CHUEN. They reside together at the top of the pyramid of the 20-day cycle of the uinal. They represent the Highest Gifts that were shared with Divine Human Beings. The Dog symbolizes our Power to Love and the Monkey represents the Power of Consciousness to Create. Together, they holds the ways and means to create the Life of our Dreams.
The Dog resides in the North, the place of Wisdom and the Truth of Love spoken by the very first breath of Creation. Holding the Element of Air, Dog/OC relates to the faculties of our mind and the power of our thoughts. Dog/OC offers the Truth of Love as our foundation. Dog/OC is conscious of every opportunity and the Truth that the Treasure of Love holds its Power to Eternity. Through the Circle of Life, Wisdom and Love can reach us beyond Time and Place. The totem Dog/Wolf carries out Life in a pack, seeking the Happiness of the Whole.
The Elders say that some totems make an appearance in our life for a Time and a special purpose. Though, when a Dog/Wolf appears with the Offering of Love, you will forever be a member of the pack. On 4 Dog/OC we are guided to see that “we’re all in this together.” We’ve seen the truth of darkness, in our Self and in the world. For all the Beauty on Mother Earth, we’ve seen the disparity of Time and Place to share the Blessing. We saw how we lived in the center of our own universe. Things were fine with us. Surely everyone else lived within the same boundaries of our own experience. We were so sure of our own Truth, we were convinced any other way of life must be the exception. Then we learned how different and how unreasonable the “exceptions” can be.
GLOBAL BURNER DAY: 4 Dog/OC
A Global Burner Day marks the center of each of the 4 seasons of the Tzolk’in round. Halfway between one way and another marks a Time and Place of an energetic Release. Each Season offers a different perspective of Life and changing Intentions of Love. The Global Burner can turn our thoughts from one perspective to another. We began a new Life, Awakened to our own Divine Possibility to manifest our Dreams. The Dream served a Divine Intention in the beginning, though it was only the Most Important Truth we needed in a Time and Place we needed a Dream to Survive the darkness of the Unknown at our beginning. Our first priority was to Love our Self. To keep growing toward a Higher Consciousness of Being, we have to move on to greater things. Loving our Self was intended to share the Wisdom to Love the Whole. On Global Burner Days the Mayan priest leads the Sacred Fire Ceremony for the Community. Drawing the Consciousness of the Whole together for an Intention of Love, together we will Remember we were each intended a Life of Beauty. Kneeling together we remember how the Love we know could Serve the Whole. Sharing the Light of our Greatest Treasure, we are Divinely moved into Right Relationship with the Whole. The Element of Fire holds the power of Transmutation to change us from one form of Love to another.
