In Lak’ech Ala K’in, the true meaning of life and how one may achieve it


cherokee prayer

In Mayan Tradition

there is a greeting that many people working with Mayan wisdom know of.

It is the law of In Lak’ech Ala K’in,

which means I am another yourself

(A modern day interpretation)

It also means I am you, and you are me

(A traditional Mayan interpretation)

We have come to understand that this Mayan greeting is an honoring for each other. It is a statement of unity and oneness.

In Lak’ech Ala K’in mirrors the same sediment of other beautiful greetings such as

Namaste for East India

Wiracocha for the Inca

and Mitakuye Oyasin for the Lakota

It doesn’t matter which culture you come from

But when one of these sacred greetings is given, there is always an action of placing the hands over the heart.

The more I walk the Mayan path, the more I understand the depth that In Lak’ech Ala K’in teaches

This greeting has become more than a simple, honorable Maya greeting

It has evolved into a moral code, and a way to create a positive reality for all life

As we near 2012 with all its doom and gloom prophecies, we have a moral obligation to Spirit to live the code of In Lak’ech Ala K’in

It is common knowledge these days that every action we take in our lives affects all living things

We understand that if we act negatively, our actions impact all life negatively

When we act positively, we affect all life in a positive manner

When we live the Mayan code of In Lak’ech Ala K’in, we know that every action we take is out of respect for all life, and we are living and giving from our hearts.

We can give our hearts in a positive manner every

day by saying

In Lak’ech Ala K’in to each other, to the morning sun and the moon, to the trees and rocks and things, to the sky and birds, to the animals and fishes, to the stars, to our Mother Earth and most importantly to each other the people of the world.

You can greet each sunrise by saying In

Lak’ech Ala K’in

Each and every day we have together is sacred

so acknowledge this day by giving it your


Remember when you give in this way, you are also giving to yourself

You are not giving your energy away to something separate from yourself

Y ou are giving to another part of yourself!

I understand the challenges in staying positive in these days where the energy is so compressed that we can hardly breathe

but there is one simple exercise that can turn it all around for us

Each day, simply walk in gratefulness

We can say In Lak’ech Ala K’in to that which gives us life everyday, and that is the heart of the Great Spirit

Instead of solely taking from the Great Spirit by asking for insight and direction

give back your heart, love, and appreciation

You will be amazed at the results

If we open our hearts and send gratitude, it opens all doors that were previously closed to us.

Remember you are a part of Great Spirit!

When you give to Great Spirit you are giving to yourself

We can practice In Lak’ech Ala K’in tirelessly

because when and what we give to others is giving energy to ourselves

When we give, we receive

So how do we know if we are giving correctly?

It is really simple

When we are energized by our giving we know we are giving from our hearts and from the code of

In Lak’ech Ala K’in

If we feel drained or exhausted, it is possible that we gave out of fear, lack, obligation, ego, or a need to be accepted or liked

The more one practices In Lak’ech Ala K’in

the clearer we will become about our motivations regarding our actions, and the more we will receive

Remember . . . Karma . . .

what goes around comes around exactly the way it was sent out

If you don’t like what life is sending to you look at what you are sending out to life

When we begin to live and practice In Lak’ech Ala K’in

a lot of our old ways of doing things will no longer work for us

For instance, we cannot act like victims anymore and we cannot live out of fear either

We find ourselves no longer preparing for disaster; instead we anticipate a glorious future

It is time for us to rewrite the prophecies

They have become obsolete

The past will become just a bad dream that was caught in our dream catchers

and the future will become a beautiful vision of which we will create right now

When we practice In Lak’ech Ala K’in

we quit being neutral in our world

because we understand that Spirit works with those that take action

We begin to take action by adding to the positive experience of this dimension

So what kind of world do you want?

Don’t just stand there waiting for the world

to appear in front of you

Spirit helps those who help themselves

It is up to us

When we practice the moral code of

In Lak’ech Ala K’in

we are producing and sending positive and vital energy that can literally transform our troubled world

into Paradise

When we live from In Lak’ech Ala K’in, we are putting to use our natural ability to create our reality

We are affecting the collective consciousness of humanity in a positive way

The Cosmic Maya, also known as the

“Star Elders”


“Invisible Council”

understood this natural power to create their reality

Their sacred calendars mapped the natural laws of the universe

Now it is our turn to come to this understanding

It is time for us to walk as the Star Elders did so many years ago

The time has come for us to change the world

The more humanity begins to live

In Lak’ech Ala K’in

the less we will think in terms of our separateness

There can be no competition

jealousy or

envy between us

because we are pieces of each other we are the puzzle of life

if you but step back and put these pieces together in your mind you can then see clearly the whole picture

We can share and help each other with our connections

ideas and resources without fear that there will not be enough to go around the Mother Earth provides a grand abundance if but shared properly


When we live the reality of unity

abundance and wholeness

there will be unity

abundance and wholeness for everyone!

The more of us that participate in the creation of a better world

the quicker it will arrive

We will have Peace world wide

love, harmony and unity

Will finally have arrived home

I Plant this seed in your hearts today

this seed will grow my love

out of your heart will come

the Garden of Eden

the original thoughts the Great Spirit

had in mind when we were created.

To every living soul from Tony Gray’Owl

In Lak’ech Ala K’in

I will Take you now to the Prophecies of the Mayan

    Again i am taken within by God’s words via your manifestations and one thing comes to me now… the new world order is all about depopulation saying there are too many people thus souls alive right now. If we begin to see yourself in others on a grand scale as the Mayans and others profess, this world and her secrets yet to be revealed can sustain an even greater population than is alive today. If you stand each and every person next to one another, the mass would occupy an area the size of Alaska! I am a firm believer that each and every soul is important and possess free will and love yet untapped in the majority. There are more souls alive today than all souls that have gone before us. We are the ones we have been waiting for so simply ” Love thy neighbour “… merci beaucoup TGO

    9:53 p.m. I found this fascinating. Once again, you have opened your heart, and allowed the blood of life to flow out in divine knowledge. The music was so wonderful, putting me in the moment, as you always manage to accomplish. When you love what you do, it shows. Every movement has the ability to flow into another. The Divine certainly flows through your work to “Heart”
    Thank you for giving from the depth of your soul, a work of Art, that is likened only To “Heaven On Earth”.
    Love & Light
