People born into the Incarnation cross of Maya are born with an internal pressure to know Why. This energy has driven humankind to be explorers. It has pushed us to explore the continents, then to the seas, then to outer space and now to the universe. But it is not just outward exploration as we have gone the other direction too. Through science, religion and spirituality we are exploring the inner space inside of us.
In a way you could say the channels between the head and Ajna represent 3 ways to solve this question why. The right channel is logical and scientific. The left channel is abstract and represents religion. The middle channel represents pure spirituality, the simple yet powerful connection to knowing on a personal level.
The Mandala to the left is of the cross of Maya and can help you understand how crosses are formed. Click on the image to the left to enlarge it. This will allow you to see how the cross is formed. The cross is created by the gates of the I Ching in the Sun and Earth, from the two critical points in time, the time of birth and 88 days before birth which is the point when the soul crystal is planted.
So you can see that each cross is composed of 4 gates, two from the sun and two from the earth. The cross of penetration is made up of the following 4 gates.
- Gate 61 – Mystery. The energy and pressure to know why.
- Gate 42 – Growth. The maturity of a project or process to set the ground work for the next cycle.
- Gate 32- Continuity. A historical memory of what has been needed to continue and carry on.
- Gate 62 – Small details. The Gate of putting a name on things so we can analyze them.
Below is the chart of the third President of the United states Thomas Jefferson. One of the things he is known for is the commission of Lewis and Clark to find a river route to the Pacific Ocean . While the project started in earnest in 1803, it was brewing within Jefferson and the new country for the 50 preceding years. A key side project that Jefferson entrusted to Lewis was to make detailed documentation of the flora and fauna along the way. The Lewis and Clark expedition in many ways typified the cross of the Maya.
- Providing details and drawings of new flora and fauna and putting names on them.
- Obtaining information to make way for the next cycle of growth.
- Trying to understand how the continent, rivers and oceans are connected.
- Obtaining information about the native American tribes living in the west.
- Creating a knowledge base or history to stabilize and provide continuity for the young nation the United States of America.
If you are feeling the pressure to know more and the subject matter interests you I would highly recommend the book Undaunted Courage by Stephen Ambrose which details the story of the Lewis and Clark expedition.
