New Release!!

Becoming Awareness

So much of our lives is a conversation.  Conversations in awareness… warriors of freedom are lucky to have even one person who they can share not only the ideas but the life of a warrior of freedom.

My predominant way of communicating with the world is the art.  Rarely do I find words and can write them and share them, mostly here.  Female Warrior as many know, is an amazing wordsmith… she has just completed her first book.  Check it out here:

Becoming Awareness Book Release!

The cover may be familiar to many… I am pleased to be a part of this release.  Warriors of freedom may not need much, but its great when we support each others work… so please get your copy, enjoy the words, and consider the conversation!!!

Chakra System and the New Seer

The Beyond

The Beyond

Probably one of the most difficult current trends in symbolic art and spirituality is the vast number of modern spiritualities that refer to the Chakras.  There are 7, and they relate to areas of the body which hold emotional energy, memory, trauma and of course healing and vision.  This is actually a current modern interpretation.   There are very specific descriptions of what they look like.  Go to any spiritually minded bookstore or gift shop, and you will see them hanging as individual units or as banners around the store.  Everyone knows they are rainbow structured, and sacred geometry is within each diagram and description of their forms.  If we study them, we find out the spiritual, healing, emotional and physical significance of each chakra.  There are gods and goddesses associated with each of them and if not gods, spiritual divine energies.  We are possessed by the spiritual materialism of these derivate forms and functions.

This is, for me as a Toltec artist, ripe for recapitulation.  The very fact that it is a pattern and a structure that was laid down before I ever got here, makes me demand to recapitulate the whole downloaded program.  Thus have I spent years meditating and connecting to this system of symbols, sounds and patterns.  What I found out is that like all religions, philosophies and cultural spiritual traditions, this one has been co-opted, simplified and is working very hard to distract the original intent and lineage to which the ancient seers created them to be.

Random acts of awareness and the senseless random reality

Mechanics of a Shamanic Journey

Mechanics of a Shamanic Journey

Warriors of awareness are a devilish group. We dare to look, perceive and understand awareness in all its forms and formulas.  This is knowledge and goes way beyond words.  We learn to practice and our practice includes: honing our awareness, mastering the creative, building fortitude, being grateful, detachment as the observer, energetic maneuvers, and most important mastery of our selves…  And with practice comes the confidence we walk a good path with heart.  It’s beautiful, it’s filled with so much necessary value.  In fact it is these values which ring the bell and send into the universe resounding intent, Intent, INTENT….

The universe is a wonder. It is awesome.  At the subatomic level it looks chaotic and random, which in many ways it is.  So easily maneuvered into structure and pattern, this wonder soup which under-veils our world is highly impacted by thoughts, words and deeds.  Neat!  Quantum physicists are proving what seers have known for millennia.  At the other end of the spectrum, the super large, the universe is an extremely cold and sterile place with pockets of hot points so infernal that elements are being created every moment.  The sum total of all the physical, light, hot aspects of the universe is about 3%… the rest is dark matter and energy or the glue that holds the whole shebang together.

Values and the Warrior Seer

Though I have not written for some time, I wanted to pass along this amazing post to everyone.  I could not have said this better and it is so timely.  Please read: Warrior Seers

We are what we value.  Our values align our trajectory in life.  And our values help us to maintain the path to freedom.  When we are clear, we can make amazing maneuvers which are inexplicable to the ordinary man.  Values guide our practice, values guide our life and love, values guide our dance and our beauty path…. what more can be said… be clear in our values and all windows of freedom remain open!!!!

The Dilemma of the Rule of the Nagual

Birth of an Idea

Birth of an Idea

“Being involved with the rule may be described as living a myth. Don Juan lived a myth, a myth that caught him and made him the Nagual.” – The Eagle’s Gift

Probably the most cryptic and difficult descriptions which modern seers of freedom have to contend with in our day is Carlos Casteneda’s revelation of the Rule of the Nagual. The text is at best cryptic, meaning each element is so brief as to be almost useless, yet mysterious enough to coax a shift our assemblage points into participating with some esoteric information and path.  The text is a hook to one’s attention and keeps us searching for freedom.  In other words, it works to increase our commitment to freedom as warriors.  Bravo Carlos!

But the darker side of the common response to this portion of the text in the Eagle’s Gift is the distraction it creates. There is an overwhelming desire it releases from unprocessed warriors to want to know who or what they are within the context of this mythological structure. (Recall that “myth” does not mean lie rather it means to reveal some deeper truth about the mysteries).  In other words The Rule becomes food for our self-importance, self-reflection and self-absorption.  It can be boldly misinterpreted as a cultic necessity to create this type of warrior’s group to leap to freedom.  And when warriors of freedom realize the difficulty of following such a rule into cult, they often become extremely disenchanted with the whole path and leave it completely. Again Bravo Casteneda!

Power

Birth - Ink on paper

Birth – Ink on paper

We are nothing as warriors of freedom if we are not in our power. But what is power? What does this mean? Where does it come from/go?

Power is not control. This is a common misperception of power. Power cannot make things happen, we do not gather up power and then use it. Power is not like a battery where we are charged up and then release at some later date. That is control. When we gather up and try to save our power, we are actually shutting it down and losing all control. We are stopping up the river, so to speak and thus have no access to power. A dam is a great analogy for power. But real dams do not stop the flow, they direct the flow and in directing it they intensify the power that can be drawn from the dam. And if that power is not used, not moving along the lines and consumed as intended, then it moves on and away. There is no past to power, there is no future to power, power just is.

One of our favorite saying is, power is as power moves. Motion, movement, constant flow is the only way power works (even from a scientific point of view!)… so when we say power is as power moves it means we are the conduit through which power moves. But where does power come from? It comes from all around us, mostly the sun. The sun is an intense field of energy which changes all the time. Through that change power moves out from that position of the sun’s assemblage point and blasts through our solar system granting the earth power. The earth has power too. It has a charged core and mantle that is heated by the sun which pulses (yes actually pulses like a heartbeat) energy through its systems. Also the moon through rotation around the earth pulses and thus the earth-moon creates power in the oceans and tides and weather. Power is thus distributed throughout our system as pure energy all the time.

The earth is efficient. Where there is no motion, there is death. Where there is death, there are other life forms that live off of that death and transform death back into life, power which is in constant motion. Just like silence is not quiet, power is not static nor stable. So we must learn as warriors of freedom to recognize where power is not moving through us and energize those areas to motion to get them back into the flow with power.

As we grow, we pile up layer upon layer of static repetitions. This in some ways allows us to use less power/energy to do things. You would not want to relearn how to walk every time you attempted it, so the pattern their becomes efficient and simplified so you can walk with less energy. But this is not where the trouble begins. The trouble begins when we create dams where there is no flow. A real dam always flows, a bad dam does not. For us dams are created in areas within our being that we have not recapitulated. These cause disease, both mental and physical. We can actually hold onto these dammed up energies for a lifetime. But eventually they are broken down and must flow into new life.

There was a man who held onto the fears and angers of his childhood with reckless abandon. He dammed the flow of energy and could not love (love is the flow of power)…. In the end his heart was clogged and he became racked with disease. His heart died, and thus the damn was broken and the release of energy was immediate and quick. This is exactly what the predator wants from us. To become damned up, fearful and bound energy.

When a normal person (warrior) dies who has been in the flow of energy, all damns completely recapitulated, their energy flows in a unique way. The power that had been flowing through the system, opens gently and a great subtle light is released. This light is full of power because it can ride on the same power that it had been throughout life. The body has nothing left to it and it is returned to the earth from whence form arose. But it returns as a gentle leaf blowing in the breeze. The predator cannot see this kind of death. The old ones called this burning with the fire within. But it is not a raging fire, not a random pulsation. It is a subtle maneuver. We release the inventory and stories and shadow of life to the earth where the predator has no power.

For the average person, who has done nothing but hold onto the patterns, is a loaded dam energy and there is a different kind of death. This death is vibrant and chaotic. This death has multiple colors to the seer. And this kind of death is racked with a flame that attracts the predator. The predator has only a brief period of time to consume this energy. First it becomes aware of that energy and speeds in faster than ordinary death. It does so to increase the fear and folly of our lives. People who die this way claim that they see their lives pass before their eyes. Of course, nothing is recapitulated, thus the recapitulation is done all at once in the moment of death… and thus the energy is consumed as it is recapitulated by….the predator. The earth cannot help in situations like this because the earth pulsates at a different vibration and has systems for breaking down normal death into its component parts. The earth moves slowly and steadily to return the components to their right place. And in working this way boosts those that die in freedom to another level of awareness. But lacking flow with real power, she can do nothing for those trapped by the predator.

It is a hard thing to watch someone die. They move to the pulse of their own patterns and if the work has not included an understanding of real power, then they are lost in the mire of death rather than the freedom death brings. Power is as power moves. We all have a chance to move within power, to align with it, to be a conduit. We all have a chance to build dams and increase our power resources if we remain in the flow. And we all have a chance to release the dams so we can return to the natural flow that is there.

As a warrior of freedom, we are in our power when we are in the flow. We see the movement of power and the resources we have to move power throughout our bodies, beings and lives. There is no disease but a loss of human form – a building up of dams, or the formulations we have created which are too dammed up. We have many resources to release and destroy those bad dams and create better functioning systems. But the key is to remain in the flow… to be constantly moving and allowing power to move through us always returning to the source, the universe where it circles around again and re-energizes our dance.

Power is as power moves…

Erasing Personal History

 

Recapitulate!! and when you are done, recapitulate again!… until the practice is so fluid as to be a walking meditation each moment flowing through us like a stream in the now which is infinity. When we become fluid we have no past and no future. We have no personal history, we have no expectations, life is what it is.

History is one of the most valuable studies in all of the disciplines because it gives us greater opportunities that we can recapitulate. Why? History means “to inquire,” to understand, to link back. For the warrior of freedom history is replete with stories, stories of power, if approached with the perception of our practice. We honor the past for it brought us to this moment. But we do not hold onto the past. What we learn is the past is encoded into our bones. We hold history whether we chose to look at it or not. To know history is to recapitulate it, to release it, and to live in the present. But if we work with history to search for the causes to the effects of now or search for reason and blame, we will become lost. Why? Because there are no innocents in anyone’s history.

When I say there are no innocents in anyone’s history, we know when we connect as warriors to history through the act of dreaming, shifting our assemblage points to know, not just to understand, that humans have been and always will be selfish and mean people surviving the best way they can. There are no innocents!!! Not a genetic line, culture, religion, clan or people. Go back far enough and every line has skeletons in its closet. No one is above any other, there is no innocent culture or time. This is the great gift that warriors get from history. We get a kind of compassion and strength that is tempered in the knowledge that freedom costs absolutely everything we have down to our bones. Awareness is the greatest gift… and taking sides is ultimately the necessity of the predator, which we are chosing to liberate ourselves from.

We are as we recapitulate, more and more free with our energy, our resources, our ability to choose in the moment. We erase personal history because we know that 99.9% of all the stories in all histories are self-important survival stories based on fear. Why are we so addicted to movies and the like? Because they are all the same story, the story of our self-importance as humans moving forward through time. Amazingly we can become overwhelmed by those that hold fast to stories. Stories of abuse, stories of survival, stories of ecstasis, stories of anything that is repeated for no other reason than they are repeated.

The greatest impediment to erasing personal history is our local friends and family. When we release our connections to history, we are in a state to create any history we wish about ourselves. We can tell any story. But those we surround ourselves with limit our ability to succeed. Their hold onto our history which can be debilitating and destructive to real freedom. So we must learn through compassion and we discover through study of history… “forgive them for they know not what they are doing.” We learn that they cannot see the limits of their perceptions of our selves.

If the burden of this type of recapitulation becomes too much, we must change our local group, tribe or clan. Ultimately as we progress as warriors, we recognize that only warriors of freedom and those dedicated to the practice can be our group. For this reason the old ones created warrior houses and groups and the Rule that moved them towards freedom together. These groups of warrior/seers were and are amazing dynamic groups. They have no history because no one cares what the history was. This does not mean they do not know their history, their stories… far from… it means they live in the place of erasing personal history even down to the previous day’s encounter. They live in support of pure and absolute freedom in the moment.

Warrior’s Dance! Warriors Sing! Warrior’s Drum! Connecting to the beat of creation in the moment. Erasing personal history is the ultimate art of the warrior of freedom. It goes to the essence of life, to create something, first we must destroy… and in destroying we are responsible for the leap into the next moment.
