THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
4 Wisdom / CIB
Tone 4 raises the Intention of Stability. We had an idea for the Creation of Love in Harmony, to create the Place where we Belong. Tone 3 offered the Divine Inspiration of Possibility. We saw something we could move on to improve the Happiness in our own life, investing Time to show someone else they belong.
3 Eagle/MEN gave us the Vision to lock into the Light of the Dream. We’re grasping at the speck of an idea for Love. On Tone 4, we’re trying to hold on to the Intention, to Remember so the Dream won’t slip away.
Tone 4 is represented by the cube, and the area within that’s defined by its borders and parameters. On Tone 4 we create a mental construct for a body of thought. In the climb for Higher Consciousness we do it by defining the thoughts we will hold in our Sanctuary. A Sanctuary is the perfect place of retreat, where Love always waits in Divine Communion. It’s hard to see that it is Real, because it is “invisible.” Yet, like the Eagle’s eye, we have a vision – a speck of the Truth. The Speck is the Divine Light that is our Faith to Believe. Believing in Love is a Beautiful Light. We might remember how we are Humbled by the Light of Love. Like the Deer’s Gift of Harmonic Resonance, when someone only sees the Light in us, we go along, to Shine in the Moment of being Seen and Acknowledged.
We can hold on to our Intention to Love by creating the Rules of the Game. We can turn away the darkness that can interrupt a Divine train of thought by choosing in advance, which thoughts belong. We are making a choice for the future that we will carry out here and now on behalf of the whole. It’s only for a Time, to see what we can learn. There will be more choices. Every choice doesn’t have to be the end-all, only one step in the right direction.
Wisdom/CIB connects us to the Ascended Masters and the Wisdom of the Ages. Our thoughts are drawn to the family of us all. It’s a day to honor the wisdom that was preserved for us and passed down as our Divine Inheritance. It’s a day to remember the Higher Ground created for Us by those who came before, who also walked “the hard road.” To honor Wisdom, we pay attention like we don’t already know everything. We take the Truth to heart that was learned in a proven and worthy way, through the experience of Blood, Sweat, and Tears. Wisdom doesn’t come easy. CIB teaches us the way by looking ahead and behind to make Choices that are Wise.
It’s easier to make a Wise Choice than it is to decide if a choice will lead us in the right or wrong direction. We can usually figure out the “next right thing.” Sometimes, it’s doing the dishes. When we don’t know one thing, that’s a Truth. It isn’t wise to move on something we can’t see. We don’t have to, when we have the wisdom to USE THE TIME for Patience to see a bigger picture. There’s always a Divine Meaning for Time, when Time is applied to See and Know more about anything we care about.
CIB’s totem is the Owl, the mystical ferryman that holds a torch aloft and guides the journey to the “otherside.” The fare for passage is Forgiveness. To move on over to the otherside of Life, we must let go of all the worldly matters of the past. By Egyptian myth, the heart must be as light as a feather. The Owl is a symbol of the transition from Life to Death. We can ascend to a Higher Life when we let the old one go. It’s finished. All the choices we made were based on a set of circumstances that was “then.” This is NOW. The Owl has eyes like an Eagle, with the Power to see what’s behind and to see through the darkness.
