13 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Ascension: Day 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

13 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 13 we Ascend to a Higher Consciousness. Tone 13 raises Consciousness to Answered Prayers. From Higher Ground we see new possibilities. We want to try again, or start something new.

13 Serpent/CHICCHAN is a Divine Initiation of Spirit. The end promised from the beginning was the Quickening of our Spirit. Through a gift of “lightning in the blood,” we receive the Power to Live our Life.

Seed/KAN was the Spark of “dragon energy” within. Serpent/CHICCHAN is the Source of the Light, that ignited the Seed’s Force of Life.

Serpent/CHICCHAN represents the Feathered Serpent, Kulkulkan/Quetzalcoatl. CHICCHAN is a catalyst of Life Force that can move us, Body and Soul. CHICCHAN is the Divine Element of Fire, like Lightning, that grabs our Heart from Above. CHICCHAN is the Kundalini energy that rises from the root to the Crown and sets our hair on end.

Seed/KAN is the Spark to Know our Self. CHICCHAN is the Gift to Know the Truth by Feeling. The Truth that matters is never measured by facts and figures. The Truth is the story in the background. Holding the Element of Fire, CHICCHAN raises our Senses to Love. CHICCHAN is the Snake that sheds its skin to expand and grow.

We were prepared to Expand and Grow by Feeling the Truth of Life. CHICCHAN can ignite the Gifts of  Compassionate Love and Divine Discernment. CHICCHAN shares Truth that we can FEEL.

12 Seed / KAN – A Dream of Belonging: Day 12 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

12 Seed / KAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 raises the Intention of Understanding. Number 12 is the symbol of Humanity, the Being of Duality in the lower place, guided by a Higher 1. 13 is the symbol of the Scion, Human’s Highest Potential, when wholly invested by Faith in the 1 Above.

Comprehension is a Divine Gift of Understanding. We can learn from ALL Time. We are One in the Lineage of the Scion, “Witness of Love.”  We were given “Choice” to Belong.

Tone 12 draws all the disassociated pieces and parts into a New and Higher Functioning Whole. Through the Choice to Forgive, we found a Divine Truth. In the Light of Divine Truth, it never matters how long it took to know, or how we had to learn. We know it NOW.

The Past created the Dream for Today. Today is given for the Dream of Tomorrow.

Seed/KAN is the symbol of the Scion, a Circle of Life and Love ever-lasting. The Heart of the Seed is multiplied to abundance. The Seed is a symbol of Salvation, a Sanctuary of Self. Every Seed knows the Holy Ground where it Belongs. We are the Sole Owners of our Life. KAN shares the Clearing of Karma, and the Right to Choose “No.”

KAN is the Spark of Knowing within the Seed, related to the “dragon energy” of Divine Consciousness and the Light of Illumination. KAN is the “Light for Life” within. Seed/KAN resides in the South, the direction of Relationship with one another and the Natural World. Holding the Element of Earth, KAN turns our thoughts to the tangible Truth and our Common experience of everyday. KAN is a Spark of Divine Intelligence that guides us, like every tiny Seed holds a “thought of Truth” – what it needs to grow it’s Best Life.

Seed/KAN resides in the South, the influence of Relationships with one another and with the Natural World. KAN helps us see the influences of our daily life. The Element of Earth relates to Truth that we can feel, see, touch – solid Truth of tangibility. We think we need to defend “no” to maintain our relationships. We waste time agonizing on the best way to explain our choice. KAN sees the Truth. A Right Relationship offers the Choice.

KAN can help us see we HAVE to make the Choices that lead to our Highest State of Mind. Those born Seed/KAN grow up to serve the elderly, infirmed, and others unable to care for themselves. Seed/KAN says “yes” for a Higher Cause.

11 Night / AKBAL – A Dream of Belonging: Day 11 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: BUILDING A SANCTUARY

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

11 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 raises the Intention of Resolution. Like a Divine pair of antennae, 11 tunes us in to a higher channel of thought. Tone 11 helps us find the Place where We Belong in the Universe. The Meaning of our Life can be as clear as Common Sense.

We know what we want, and we know what we Love. Every Seed knows what it needs to reach its Highest Potential. The Truth was written within.

Truth is the perfect balance for Love. Love at first sight leads us back to the beginning. “When did it start? How did it happen? When did you know?” Truth leads us into the future. When the questions of the past raise the Truth of Love over Time, Time is the next thought and we imagine tomorrow. We’re imagining a family before we’ve had the next date.

We are completing the 1st Season of the Tzolk’in, the most important Truth we needed to know to live a Divine Life. After all the blood, sweat and tears we invested in “reasoning a way” we can hardly imagine, we discover we were following the Light of a Dream. “Life is but a dream.” It’s ours to claim by the future we imagine. It’s simple, but it isn’t easy.

Night/AKBAL makes it “easy to see.” There is a Divine Provision for every Human limitation. AKBAL is the Dreamer that Believes in the Dream. The glyph resembles the face of Monkey/CHUEN, the nahaul of the Creator and Artist of Life. A veil is drawn aside to see the Light that shines in the darkness of the Unknown, within.

Night/AKBAL offers a mystical experience of the Heart. AKBAL lies in the West, the direction of our Unknown future. The Element of Water reflects the Moon and our Human emotions, Below. Water is the Blessing of Spirit from Above. AKBAL is the Voice that speaks in our Dreams, an audible Truth our Heart needs to know to carry on.  Love is always the Highest Truth we can know. There is no greater reason to Live for tomorrow.

AKBAL guides us to willingly enter the darkness where Love is still Unknown. To help us claim our Deepest Heart’s Desire, we will see it like a Dream. We’ll see our feelings from an objective point of view. It still hurts to see the Dream we buried as “impossible.” We can see everything from a higher point of view on Tone 11. If we dare to look close-up, we may not even want it anymore. We could see it wasn’t the “dream” per se that we have an issue with, but the Idea that it was something we REALLY Loved and it was a Dream of Life, and it can’t come True. So, how are we to believe Dreams come True?

Part of the mystical experience of AKBAL is the vision to see the “monkey business” in our own mind. We try to think our way to Love. Love is a Feeling. Divinely, it works for us, as long as we Apply what Truth we can see. AKBAL lifts the veil on the faculties of “the Dream.” From a detached point of view we can see our Conscious and our Unconscious thoughts, the thoughts of Reason and Imagination. We can see the Forces given for the Creation of every Dream, to believe every Dream of our Heart’s Desire is already True. Dreams are REAL. In the Divine Reflection, this “April Fools” magic is no joke. 🙂

10 Wind / IK – A Dream of Belonging: Day 10 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

10 Wind / IK

HAAB NEW YEAR: 10 Wind/IK  
March 31, 2021 by northern count

Greetings Kin,

10 Wind/IK is the Destiny that K’inich Ahau flashed as the Dawns First and Brightest Light. The Haab is the 365-day “vague year” calendar of 365 days. “Leap days” are accounted for by a New Year’s day celebrated on the zenithal Sun of Time and Place. The Haab leads the cycle of Planetary Intention of Truth known by the Whole. We Completed 9 Earth/CABAN, learning the Wisdom that lies within and the Truth that matters at the Heart of Life. Divided from one  another, we imagined what the Divine Answer could be. We asked to Know, when we saw the Truth we created.

10 Wind/IK is a Haab year of “darkness” (White and Yellow Day Signs), representing Time for the Wisdom of our own Experience. We were Inspired to Dream of a Better Life on behalf of the Whole. 10 Wind/IK guides the Way for the Dream to come True.

The Challenge begins today for the Human Race to claim the Reality of our Dreams. Today offers the First Light that sets the Tone and Frequency for Divine Truth to become Real by our own Experience. We will See and Feel the Power of Love working in our own life in ways we couldn’t imagine. The Truth lies in the end, though today is ours with a Divine Agency Above to claim where Love will lead us and how Love can only grow.

Tone 10 holds the Intention of Manifestation. The Manifestation of Love is Human’s most challenging creation. Love is a Dream for Tomorrow. Love doesn’t hold any value if it is just here for today. The challenge of the Creation is that we have to claim the Truth that lies in the future. When we Discern the Truth of Love, we know tomorrow may come, though all that matters is Here and Now. True Love is Divine on every scale. Love is the Truth for ALL Time and all our Time is recorded.

Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit. The glyph illustrates the “T” carved in stone. The portals magnified the Sound of the Wind, and directed vision to an  end. The “T” represents the Tree of Life. “Te” is revered by the Maya as the sacred word of creation, a breath intended to create Sound. Wind/IK represents the Voice of the Creator, disseminating Divine Thoughts and Ideas that can change our mind and turn us in a new direction. IK holds the Power of the god Huracan. More than just the gentle breeze, IK can change the landscape of our life if that’s what it takes to claim the Truth.

10 Wind/IK marks a New Year of Divine Justice, Manifested by a Power Above that was APPLIED by Humanity as the Divine Truth Below. We will see the Truth written from the Beginning. We are guided by Wind/IK and Manifestation is guided by Divine Agency. A Divine Army of Angels will be at our side. To carry on to the ends of our Divine Justice, we only have to claim it’s true. What we can’t imagine, we can raise as our Offering of Faith we ASK to Believe. 10 Wind/IK can answer a prayer in the beginning so we can believe in the end.

9 Crocodile / IMIX – A Dream of Belonging: Day 9 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

9 Crocodile / IMIX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience. Number 9 completes a Divine Discernment of Truth. In the 9th Hour we stand back to see “the work” that’s “finished.” It’s a Divine Instinct to see it from every angle. Tone 9 comes with the warning of “suffering to bear” if we fail to take this step for the lack of insight.

Number 9 represents the Power of the Holy, Holy, Holy, as 3 x 3 – a “sum of the whole” investment to create the Higher One (10). The Intention is to see the exponential power of Trinity, Above and Below. Number 9 offers the “legs for Truth to stand” when Human can see the Truth of Cause and Effect. On Tone 9 Human’s Heart and Mind can  be drawn together to Believe as One.

Crocodile/IMIX is the Dawn of a New Awakening. IMIX is the Primordial Mother, the Divine Feminine. She conceived the Love of everything that we could be. She was witness to our first thoughts. She felt the Movement of the Seed that came to Life within.

8 Sun/AHAU shared the Light of the all-in-one. The Light to see our Self without any shadows, pieces and parts of our self. We could see the Spark of all these things to Love in our Self. The Discernment of Divine Truth always carries us back to the Beginning of Time. In the Moment that we Know Love Is, we race back to the moment we first met. We remember how it started and track every moment from the beginning of Love to its end in the Here and Now. We can hardly believe how all the signs and symbols where there that we can now see all-at-once.

That journey back “home” completes a Circle of Love that Human will try to make by our own Intentions. Sometimes the pieces don’t fit. We long to make that journey back to a beginning of Love that was still Unknown, lying in our future. Our mind wants to believe we can fall in Love in a moment. Though, to Know the Whole Truth of the Experience, we need to add a “sum of the Whole” Before, and After.

Crocodile/IMIX is a mentally active day, like first waking up to a whole new stream of thoughts. IMIX shares “wild ideas” out of the blue. We are waking up with wild new ideas about our Life, with the ways and means to fulfill our Mission by Choosing what we Love. We will Belong, holding the Highest Intention of Harmony and Equity. Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light of Family and Home as the “Golden Rule.”

THE 4TH UINAL
Crocodile/IMIX begins every uinal by the Tzolk’in count. The Divine Feminine holds the aspects of Compassionate Love and Divine Discernment. One relies on the other. The all-in-one Light of the Omega sheds light on an unlimited number of bright ideas. Love is conceived by the Mother for Inspiration’s Highest Creation. She discerns the Highest Beauty that could be, on behalf of the Hearts of the Whole. It’s said that when you follow the IMIX “wild idea” you really Love, the Creation will be Seen and Acknowledged as a work of “Divine Genius.” The 4th uinal represents the Stability for Faith to stand. We are guided to draw a circle around the Dreams we Love, and the Truth we will hold as the Pillars of Faith for Love to stand. Like the Deer stands, we don’t have to run to convince anyone else to see what we see. We found the One within that sees, when we turn to an altar.

8 Sun / AHAU – A Dream of Belonging: Day 8 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: BUILDING A SANCTUARY

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 Sun / AHAU

Greetings Kin,

Tone 8 is the Holy Day of the trecena. Transformation begins across the threshold in the Light of Divine Truth. The Number 8 is known as the Intentions of “pure spirit,” holding the meaning of Divine Justice. Number 8 is the symbol of Life to Infinity. We’re given the Light to see the Divine Balance of Love.

The 8th hour, like a Full Moon, completes the Light of the Zenith Hour. On Tone 7 we stood in the Balance of Human’s Light of Truth. It wasn’t all there was to see. We took in all the Light of the experience. We gathered all the Light we needed to know we Will reach a Higher End.

Today we can see that Life and Time always lead in that direction. We only have to open our eyes to look to see. We only need Time and some Patience to think about Love, to arrive at the Truth that Love is the Light of our Life. Love is the Truth that is never forgotten. Love is the Truth we don’t try to change. And, even if we choose to forget for a while, the Real Love will last forever.

We were created to Take a Stand for Love. Love is the Light that is never forgotten. The Truth can only grow brighter with Forgiveness. The matter that divides us falls away and the Truth of Love is ours for All Time. Without any shadows it’s plain to see. There is always more Love to be seen in our Time and Place. The Beauty in Our Time was created in Harmony with the whole.

From Human’s perspective, our Divine Justice means that we’ll get everything we deserve in the end. The Creator has a Higher Dream than we can imagine. By the end, to know “all-at-once” the Love that has been Ours from the Beginning. “If all Time was created for Love… if it’s all our choice, and if the only limit is our imagination…” then, there can be no exceptions for the Creation of Truth and Light.

Every Transformation begins from the Higher Ground of our last Ascension. Sun/AHAU was the Light always by our side as we made our way through the darkest days. The Light came down the stairs with an Intention for us to See and Feel the Truth. The Light and Time was known by our Divine Ancestors. We still don’t know everything the Maya have figured out. There are calendars said to be too sacred to be shared in this era of Humanity. It was Truth important enough to carve in stone, and to draw pictures to understand. The stories told of Divine Heroes were passed on one-to-one through Sound. The feelings came with it.

By Human Nature, we Love a Hero. A Hero is what we Dream to be, a warrior of Love who faced the battle of Human emotions, lowering our shield for every blow. We claimed the Higher Ground with Divine Armor, reflecting only the Truth of Love. We could relate to all the heroes, comparing our “best days.” On our knees at an altar, adding the “sum of the whole” Love in our Life, our Offering was to claim we hardly saw a thing. We need more Time, now that we know we could go back again, and waiting in the Sanctuary of Love, the Feeling of Love remains. We hold the Key to Remember the Time and Place when Love was more than we could imagine.

7 Storm / CAUAC – A Dream of Belonging: Day 7 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY

7 Storm / CAUAC

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 7 completes the Human climb to the top of the pyramid. Above the canopy, we can see “all that is” and “all that is not.” Number 7 represents the Power to Manifest our Dreams into Reality. Life is what we expect it to be. With the Power to see our own thoughts, we can choose to raise our expectations. Love is a Truth that only grows brighter, when we see it from every perspective on every scale.

We know a Human touch Intended as an Expression of Love. We know the Truth when we see it. Love creates its Sparks of Light and delivers an electrical charge through the Heart. The Truth ignites “lightning in the blood,” what the Maya call the Sixth Sense of the Heart.

All the Day Signs are archetypes of the All-in-One. Each reflects a side of a Divine Personality. We were created for a Relationship. The Hunab Ku is the Maya’s nearest description of a One God, defined as “everything that ever was, is, or ever could be.” Their pantheon of gods are personalities Human can conceive for Relationship. We are One with the Whole. The archetypes help us see ways we are different, yet understand through the sparks of Love that ARE just the same.

The best way to know the All-In-One is to know one another. Our Destiny Kin tells the story of our Time and Place. Some nahauls are totems from the animal world, where the strength is beyond Human’s Nature, like the Dog that always defends the pack. There are more ways to be Divine than Human can count on our fingers and toes. Our Collective Love is greater than all these things. Love multiplied “everything that ever was, is, or ever could be.” It seems “impossible” to Human’s mind of Reason, and just as “impossible” to imagine. Every expression holds the Beauty of Love. “Love Unseen” is the darkness. “Love Seen” is the Light.

Storm/CAUAC holds the Power of Lightning to grasp our Faith and carry it to the Heart of Sky. CAUAC shares a Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit. CAUAC is the “midwife that delivers” us to the Light, opening a path to the very Dream of Love that is our Spark within. On Flint/ETZNAB we were willing to Give our Heart to know the Truth of Love. We opened our Heart to share what was hidden. Unconditional Love changes “impossible” to “possible” by a Light that claims we Belong.

IN SYNCHRONICITY WITH THE UNIVERSE:
Today is a Full Super Moon in Libra, a Complete Reflection of the Sun’s Light on the Truth that Balances the Scales. The Divine Justice for Faith is the Whole Light of Believing. Referred to as the Worm Moon, the Time heralds New Life in the Spring. The Sugar Moon (Ojibwe) marks the time when the sap flows. The Wind Strong Moon (Pueblo) refers to the strong windy days that come at this time of year. The Sore Eyes Moon (Dakota, Lakota, Assiniboine) highlights the blinding rays of sunlight that reflect off the melting snow of late winter. This Super Moon is the Lenten Moon marking the next Sunday (7th Day) as Easter. Signs are given Now for the Future.

6 Flint / ETZNAB – A Dream of Belonging: Day 6 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

6 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

THE WAYEB: DAY 2 OF 5
It’s Time for Human Being to carry the Light of Truth. The Wayeb presents a Time to turn to the Sanctuary within for the Light to lead the way. We are the shining star, left to share our Light in all directions. We were born with the Heart of a Divine Mother. It’s Time to see the Power of the Spark to manifest our own Light.

Tone 6 is the Peak Tone holding the Intention of Flow. Tone 6 represents the Truth we learn on the way. As the “the work” of Creation begins, we see better ways. We establish a rhythm and pattern through a system of movement to create an Unseen Force of Momentum. Now there’s a higher end in sight. We want to see just how far we can go. The energy of Intention on Tone 6 is compared to a Great Athlete, where performance takes on the Beauty of the Art.

We engage our longest stride, running toward the Leap for Love. Tone 6 reveals the Power of a New Way to claim the Higher Ground of Love.

Flint/ETZNAB can change our mind, delivering a “flash of Truth.” Like struck flint, ETZNAB shares the Divine Sparks of Intelligence. “By courageously wielding the sword of truth, falsehoods are cut away.” The glyph illustrates the pyramid from the view Above. ETZNAB shares the Highest Truth we need to know.

Flint’s Truth can cut to the bone. The Elders say that the road to Higher Consciousness requires the courage to see our Self. The Truth may hurt, but we will be glad to know when it opens a new way to live. ETZNAB delivers the Unexpected Truth that was hidden or covered up. ETZNAB is the “Obsidian Mirror,” glass forged by Fire that returns a perfect reflection of the Truth. The mirror’s reflection shares the “Truth that is,” including all the Truth we think we covered up.

Like the static electricity before a Storm (CAUAC), positive and negative thoughts are gathered by their own kind. The Light of Truth shines brighter when all the pieces are drawn together that we ALREADY know. The Truth we see “all at once” is Truth we already knew. We are meant to see the Truth we Know within. Dynamic developments are possible when we learn why we didn’t believe the Truth we felt within. Were we afraid of our Highest Hopes? Where we afraid of our worst fears? Today we’ll see ALL TRUTH is a blessing when it sweeps our path clear. The Whole Truth is Light that shines the way to a Promise that proves the Truth of Love.

5 Earth / CABAN – A Dream of Belonging: Day 5 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

THE WAYEB: The Nameless Days
The Year Bearer of the Haab by Northern count moved on in the night. 9 Earth/CABAN, a symbol of Life and Movement that is “finished,” completed its Intention of Truth. Earth/CABAN is a Red Day Sign, marking a planetary cycle of Divine Inspiration, “Light.” Following every cycle of “Light” is the cycle of “Darkness,” human’s application of Truth that manifests the Wisdom of our own Experience.

Isolated from one another we were given Time to Imagine who we are and what we were intended to be. We saw the Truth we created in the world below. In the darkness, we found our own Light – a Dream of Life to carry on. We were Dreaming of everything that Life was meant to be.

March 31, 2021 is the Haab New Year led by 10 Wind/IK. The Element of Air is our common field of thoughts, electrical signals, and the elements of our self we exchange with every breath. Wind/IK holds the  Power of the god Huracan, a Supreme Creator’s Intention for the Whole. On a planetary scale, the Winds of Truth and a Promise of Love can change the landscape to change our mind.

10 represents Manifestation. Wind/IK is the Breath of Life, and the Breath of Spirit, the Voice of the Creator we can hear and  Wind that we can Feel. 10 Wind/IK marks a journey to know the Truth of Divine Justice – the end that manifested the beginning. We were given Wisdom to manifest the Divine Truth.

In the meantime, the 5 days of the Wayeb are observed as the Time to stay in the Sanctuary of Home. The Maya only venture out to check in on neighbors and family. There is no one in charge on the plane of physicality to wield the influence of Divine Intention. It’s up to us.

4 Wisdom / CIB – A Dream of Belonging: Day 4 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Wisdom / CIB

Greetings Kin,

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.
