7 Tz’i’- Creation to Realization for Cholq’ij New Year
TZ’I’ is the law. It is the Supreme law, the law of the Order of Creation, of the Natural Order. It is the law of consciousness “the respect for everything that exists is the respect you have for yourself.” In the continuum of the energies that were manifested in the origin of Creation, Tz’i’ is the spiritual authority. It symbolizes the Divine energies, the Cosmic Authorities that gave shape to this dimension and to the levels of Kaj and Xib’alb’ay. B’itol, Tz’aqol, Alom, and K’ajolom are the creating deities that delineated the vision with which the Najt (space-time) was configured. Here every thought and Creation, everything that was given shape, and especially everyone that was given the Breath of Life exists. Tz’i’ is the adviser, the secretary, the scribe, the one that keeps record of everything that has happened. And we have access to everything that has been thought and created, to what we are going to do with our life. We are that authority which will take responsibility for our existence, for the Creation we make of it. We determine our destiny, we have the power to undo the limitations, the problems. We have the power to break with the routine, with others doing the thinking for us, dictating to us what to do. The routine, with no time or space, does not allow us to be aware of our power. Tz’i’ is the colophon of this sequence of the energies of the days, and it gives us the power of freeing ourselves from the limits that are generated by a vision based on the material, on reason. Tz’i’ gives us the power. It directs us to the true reality. It guides our inner being and it expands us to the Cosmic. Every person becomes a spiritual authority. Everyone is connected to the Supreme authorities of the Underworld and the Supra-World. This cycle gives us the opportunity to grow, to reach the purpose of being. We are a part of the prophetic times of the Job Ajaw. Spirituality of these times has a name, that name is “Action”. The last time the Grandfather came down from the mountain he only left a message: “Lets return to being humans…”
Wajxaqib’ (8) B’at’z – The Cholq’ij New Year
According to the Maya, the world was created in one Mayan month (twenty days). The process of creation begins on Jun (1) B’atz and ends on the day Wuqub’ (7) Tz’i’, completing the first twenty days of the Cholq’ij (Calendar of Life). After this final day of creation, the day Wajxaqib’ (8) B’atz’ arrives, which is considered the Cholq’ij New Year. When Maya people celebrate the Cholq’ij new year, they are celebrating that the creation of the world has been fulfilled, and the beginning of a new cycle of 260 days.
We are living in the time of the Job’ Ajaw, or Fifth Sun which we entered on December 21, 2012. This epoch is related to the element Ether and to the fifth dimension. We have entered a time of greater awareness, in which we are witnessing socio-economic changes – but these changes don’t happen overnight. We are only now beginning to see them. The energy of the Ch’umilal, or signs of the Maya Cholq’ij Calendar, have the same meaning we have been sharing, but now their energy resonates more with the spiritual power that comes with them. The concatenation of the energies that each of the Ch’umilal represents is the guide of the Creation. It influences us throughout the cycle of our life and the cycle of Mother Earth. By working with each of the days we will connect to the spiritual energy of the twenty Ch’umilal to be in harmony with each of them.
