"Languages" pt. 2

Sorry don't know why it stopped saving. Here we go again.

'Perhaps we wouldn't make ourselves ashamed in front of you if we asked to remove a little something from your fire?' they said when they arrived, but they got no response. And then the tribes cursed in there thoughts. Already there language had become different from that of jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not right Now and Dark Jaguar.

'Alas! we left our language behind. How did we do it? We're lost!
Where we deceived? We had only one language when we came to Tulan, and we had only one place of emergence and origin. We haven't done well,' said all the tribes beneath the trees and bushes.

And then a person showed himself before Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not Right Now, and Dark Jaguar, and he spoke as a messenger of Xibalba:

'Truly, since you have your "God", your nurturer, and he is the representation, the commemoration (celebration) of your Maker and your Modeler, don't give the tribe there fire until they give something to Tohil. You don't want them to give anything to you. You must ask what belongs to Tohil; to Him must come what they give in order to get fire,' said the Xibalba. He had wings like the wings of a Bat.

'I am the messenger of those who made you and modeled you,' said the Xibalban. So now they were happy; now they thought all the more of Tohil, Auilix, and Hacauitz. When the Xibalban had spoken he made himself vanish right in front of them, without delay.

And so again the tribes arrived, again done in by the cold. Thick were the white hail, the blacking storm, and the white crystals. The cold was incalculable. They were simply overwhelmed. Because of the cold all the tribes were going along doubled over, groping along when they arrived in the presence of Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not right Now, and Dark Jaguar. There was great pain in there hearts; they had covetous (greedy) mouths and covetous faces.

And now they were coming as thieves before Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not Right Now and Dark Jaguar:

'Wouldn't you take pity on us if we asked to remove a little something from your fire? Wasn't it found and wasn't it reveled that wee had just one home and just one mountain when you were made, when you were modeled? So please taker pity on us,' they said.

'And what would you give us for taking pity on you?' they were asked.
'Well, we'd give you metal,' said the tribes.
'We don't want metal,' said Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night.
'Whatever might you want, if we may ask?' the tribe then said.

'Very well. First we must ask Tohil, and then we'll tell you,' they were told next. And then they asked Tohil:

'What should the tribes give you, Tohil? They've come to ask for your fire,' said jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not Right Now, and Dark Jaguar.

'Very well, You will tell them:
'Don't they want to be suckled (sacrifice by self bleeding) on there sides and under there arms? Isn't it there heart's desire to embrace me? I, who am Tohil? But if there is no desire, then I'll not give then there fire,' says Tohil. 'When there "Time" comes, not right now, they'll be suckled on there sides, under there arms, he says to you,' they were told. Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not right Now and Dark Jaguar, and then they spoke the word of Tohil.

'Very well. Let him suckle. And vdry well, we shall embrace him,' said the tribes, when they answered and agreed to the word of Tohil. They made no delay but said 'very well' right away, and then they receive there fire.

After that they got warm, but there was one group that simply stole the fire, their in the smoke. This was the Bat House. Snake Tooth is the name of the "God" of the Cakchiquels, but it looks like a Bat. They went right past in the smoke then, they sneaked past when they came to get the fire. Those fiery Cakchiquels didn't ask for there fire. They didn't give themselves up in defeat, but all the other tribes were defeated when they gave themselves up to being suckled on there sides, under there arms.

And this is what Tohil meant by being suckled: that all tribes be cut open before him, and that there hearts be removed; 'through there sides, under there arms.' This deed had not yet been attempted when Tohil saw into the middle of it, nor had Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not Right Now, and Dark Jaguar received fiery splendor and majesty.

Now we start to learn what the true meaning of the Mayan sacrifices mean.

"God" bless on this Sunday evening. May you have sweet dreams with soft landings. bye
