Introduction: Following the Eagle's Flight - A Conceptual Guide to the Books of Carlos Castaneda. Ever since I could remember, I've had a vague awareness that the world was more than it seemed. As a child, I often felt surreal, like life was a play and everyone else pretended it was real. Growing up, this feeling mainfested itself into passions for science, literature and metaphysics. I began reading anything that helped deepen my understanding of life's mysteries.

The first time I read Carlos Castaneda, I was in high school. The book was Don Juan: A Yaqui's Source of Knowledge and to be honest, it didn't impress me. While the book was entertaining, I never gave any credence to Castaneda's experiences and considered them only as drug-induced possibilities. How could anybody turn into a crow? Instead I read: Watts, Rand, Kerouac, Keats, Pirsig, Jung, and anyone else who I thought had legitimately glimpsed into the human condition. I went to college, traveled for a few years and tried anything that could turn my vague awareness into a conscious knowing. I took a job teaching science but I was more interested in the metaphysical universe than the physical one. By that time, I understood that all humans possessed the ability to experience something greater than themselves. In fact, I would argue that the themes of most books deal with a person's experience of trying to tap into a greater power. The problem for me was that neither science, philosophy nor religion had ever explained that "greater power" in a rational, causual way. A few years later, I came across The Art of Dreaming and after only a few pages, I realized that this book was attempting to explain in detail, the metaphysical universe. I wondered whether I had missed something in Castaneda's first book so I immediately bought the entire series from a second-hand book shop and started reading. The more I read, the more I realized that Castaneda's books were not about drug-induced fantasies but about a system of knowledge (Toltec) that explained the nature of the universe. To understand that system, I knew I had to pluck out all the important pieces from each book and try and put them back together like a puzzle. After initially reading the series, I reread it again, this time marking each important passage and typing it into a computer. Having no idea how the pieces of knowledge fit together, I began organizing each idea conceptually trying to understand the main themes of Castaneda's writing. Finally, four years later, I put the last pieces of the puzzle together and stepped back to see what had been created. I wasn't disappointed. Castaneda had managed to weave into his books, the Toltec's entire system of knowledge. I was amazed at the simplicity behind the knowledge yet the thoroughness to include everything in its description. I no longer scoffed at the idea of someone becoming a crow, in fact, it seems very rational to me now. To ensure that I had left nothing out of the Toltec system of knowledge, I read the other books written by other members in Castaneda's group. All books verified and repeated what Castaneda wrote with the exception of Taisha Abelar's The Sorcerer's Crossing. Her book not only verified the Toltec knowledge but enhanced some explanations that were vague or incomplete. Her writings are included along with Castaneda's work.

Three themes emerged from Castaneda's work: First, the description of the universe and humans as energy. Second, the description why humans fail to perceive the universe and themselves as energy. Third, the description on how to perceive the universe and ourselves as energy via the sorcerer's way. See the summary of the Sorcerer's Way. To truly appreciate the core ideas of the Toltec knowledge, the work was designed to be read completely from beginning to end. Through a series of questions and answers, each Toltec concept is built upon each other thus enabling the reader to move deeper and deeper into the knowledge as they read. Each quotation is followed by the particular book's intials (see bottom of page for key) and page number. Finally, I would like to caution those who wish to understand Toltec knowledge through academic means only. You can't. This intellectual organization of knowledge serves as a starting point for people to question their reality but does nothing to help you experience that reality. To truly understand what it means to stop the world, to slip between its cracks and to follow the flight of the Eagle, you need to put away the books, stop talking about it and act. And you might, if you maintain your actions, (intent) and act impeccably, you just might be lucky enough to verify for yourself some of the concepts of the Toltec path. Jay French Guide to the books:

Summary of the Sorcerer's way I. What is the true nature of reality?

The universe and everything in it is made up solely of energy. There are no objects, just energy. This energy emanates from a force (The Eagle) and radiates throughout the universe (The Eagle's Emanations) as an infinite number of energy fields. Humans are energy bubbles (luminous eggs) that arise from one of the 48 energy fields associated with the earth.(Great Bands of Emanations) There are other non human bubbles arising from 7 different bands called inorganic beings. Humans begin perceiving when a vibrating portion of their emanations inside the luminous egg matches a vibrating portion of outside emanations and fixates. The place where fixation occurs inside the luminous egg is known as the assemblage point. The assemblage point is where perception takes place. The position of the assemblage point determines what a human will perceive. o If the assemblage point is fixated habitually on one spot, this is called the first attention. (tonal) o If the assemblage point fixates somewhere other than the habitual spot, this is known as the second attention. (nagual) o If the assemblage point fixates on all spots at once, this is known as the third attention. (fire from within) The purpose of humans is to enhance our awareness through our life experiences then be taken back up into the Eagle as food.

II. Why can't humans perceive the true nature of reality?

When humans are born, their assemblage point is very fluid and babies perceive many different things. (including energy) As babies get older, the assemblage point begins to fixate habitually based upon what people teach the baby. (tonal of the times) The habitual fixation of the assemblage point is reinforced daily so that all of our available energy is

used to keep it there. (ego) Our perception of reality therefore becomes fixed for life. III. How can humans perceive the true nature of reality? (The Sorcerer's Way)

To experience the true nature of reality, a person has to move the assemblage point from its habitual position. (called stopping the world) To move the assemblage point, humans have to free up some of the energy keeping the habitual assemblage point in place by o impeccability, recapitulation, not-doing, gazing, tensegrity, right way of walking, dreaming, etc. (This is the bulk of the Sorcerer's Way) o being frightened, scared, starved, anything where the ego doesn't concentrate on itself. After enough energy is freed up and the assemblage point is becoming fluid, the person then tries to permanently move their assemblage point into a different position. (losing the human form) After a person loses the human form or moves the assemblage point permanently, they are making decisions about their life based on reality as energy. They are in flow with nature and act accordingly with it, no matter how strange their actions may seem to a "normal" person. They are considered enlightened beings.

What is the ultimate goal of the Sorcerer's Way?

To enter the third attention which would allow them to bypass being food for the Eagle.

WHAT DOES THE EAGLE RESPOND TO? Since the Eagle is made of energy. alive on earth a moment before and now dead.173. have floated to the Eagle's beak. The human part of the Eagle is too insignificant to move the whole. To keep things simple. That force also makes organisms die. and then consumes them. EG. lays them flat. TAOD. These energy lines are known as the Eagle's emanations. their reason for having had life.149 CAN YOU PRAY OR ASK FAVORS FROM THE EAGLE? THE EAGLE REFLECTS ALL THINGS EQUALLY AND CANNOT BE MOVED The Eagle reflects equally and at once all those living things. See Intent. to hope for grace. EG.173. as a tanner stretches out a hide. HOW IS THE EAGLE'S ENERGY DISPERSED THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE? The Eagle's energy is released as lines of energy.. For a creature to have an affect upon the Eagle that creature must posess an excess of energy.

FFW.54 light that was alive and resemble ordinary light but ordinary light has no awareness. FFW. but a universe of the Eagle's emanations.Essence of the universe resembles incandescent threads streched into infinity in every conceivable direction. FFW.. FFW...13 there are an infinite numbers of lines that joined us to things... WHY ARE THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS ALSO CALLED THE EAGLE'S COMMANDS? THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS ARE ALSO CALLED THE EAGLE'S COMMANDS THAT NO ONE CAN DISOBEY Eagle's commands .everything is made out of the Eagle's emanations. FFW. 5. each one of them is a source of boundless energy. POS. luminous filaments that are conscious of themselves in ways impossible for the human mind to comprehend.. forever in motion.63 . that there are so many of them that numbers have no meaning and that each of them is an eternity in itself. the knowable and the unknowable FFW. and yet unchanged.JTI. making up everything in the universe.... The Eagle's emanations are an infinite amount of lines of energy emitting from the Eagle (source of all the energy in the universe) which cover the entire universe.. FFW.

FFW. .although DJ disliked calling the emanations commands.. which engulfs everything that exists.67 what's really out there are the Eagle's emanations. fluid. WHAT DO THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS LOOK LIKE? THERE IS NO TRUE VERSION OF THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS there is no pat version of the emanation .193 the Eagle's emanations are more than filaments of light. . 57 THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS ARE AN INFINITE NUMBER OF ENERGY FIELDS RESEMBLING THREADS OF LIGHTS THAT HAVE AWARENESS AND ARE ETERNAL the universe is an infinite agglomeration of energy fields.. alive and vibrating.

strings of light which were like nothing that had ever entered my thoughts. 16 HOW ARE THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS ARRANGED IN THE UNIVERSE? THE EMANATIONS ARE GROUPED IN CLUSTERS CALLED THE GREAT BAND OF EMANATIONS the Eagle's emanations are always grouped in clusters . Suddenly.. compelling fibers of light. or to describe it..110 almost instantaneously I saw a most brilliant array of live.filaments of light began to radiate from everything on that prairie. almost a mass of sorts. FFW.what he had seen was intent. a seer must witness them .) they are a prescence. At first it was like the explosion of an infinite number of short fibers. FFW. Although they sprang. then the fibers became long threadlike strands of luminosity bundled together into beams of vibrating light that reached infinity.the old seers called those clusters the great bands of emanations. TAOD. except as filaments of vibrating light. the force permeates everything. . FFW..FFW.THERE IS NO WAY TO DESCRIBE WHAT THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS ARE THEY MUST BE WITNESSED AS THE EAGLE WAS WITNESSED there is no way to describe what the Eagle's emanations really are. There was really no way for me to make sense of what I was seeing.. as one can only catch a glimpse of the Eagle itself. and yet all of them were inextricably bundled together. 57 I saw the lines of the world. a pressure that creates a dazzling sensation.. and continued to spring... I actually perceived the most extraordinary profusion of fluorescent white lines which crisscrossed everything around me. THE GREAT BAND OF EMANATIONS HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE GREAT BANDS? .I was seeing the Eagle's emanations POS.emanations are something indescribable. . going everywhere..and for an instant you were dreaming the filaments of the universe. FFW. Bright strings of light shot out from everywhere....63 One can catch a glimpse of them...JTI.176.243. in every direction. each one seperate.I made your assemblage point shift.. ..... FFW. 57 . The filaments were not intermingled or entwined.110 and the force that keeps them apart and bundles them together.240 I thought I must have fainted or that the blow had made me fall asleep. 57 DESCRIPTION OF THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS (Description of EG. I was looking at something literally beyond words. POS..252.

FFW. Thus. but necessary to understanding. There are 48 types of organizations on the earth.that in the earth there are only 48 such bands. 48 types of clusters or structures. but indescribably clustered together.177 THE EARTH'S 48 GREAT BANDS OF EMANATIONS WHAT DO THE EARTH'S 48 GREAT BANDS OF EMANATIONS PRODUCE? Each of the earth's 48 great bands of emanations produces numerous bubbles on each band. Seers have found out. there is no real order to the emanations. FFW.THE GREAT BANDS ARE CLUSTERED IN NO REAL ORDER. These bubbles are like containers that are filled with a portion of the band's emanations. FFW. LIKE A PILE OF HAY HELD IN MIDAIR..176. which is held together in midair by the force of the hand that pitched it. HOW MANY GREAT BANDS ARE THERE IN THE UNIVERSE? THERE ARE AN INFINITY OF GREAT BANDS IN THE UNIVERSE There are an infinity of great bands. The great bands are neither flat nor round. to say that there is a central part or that there are edges is misleading. Each bubble may represent the emanations or energy associated with a living creature. Organic life is one of them.177 THERE ARE 48 GREAT BANDS IN THE EARTH. .180 ARE THEY REALLY BANDS? THEY AREN'T REALLY BANDS BUT THE NAME STUCK They aren't really bands but the name stuck. FFW. like a pile of hay.

a peculiar energy.178.TRANSPARENT. lucious fruit there is. They are transparent and have a a unique light of their own.177 organic beings belong to the great same band. FFW. yet only eight of those trees bear edible fruit. All of them bear fruit. one band called the organic being band that produces bubbles that represent creatures called organic beings. 7 bands called the inorganic being band that produce bubbles that represent creatures called inorganic beings. they produce containers filled with emanations.177. second.think of great bands as being like trees. HOW ARE THE EARTH'S 48 GREAT BANDS OF EMANATIONS DIVIDED? The earth's 48 great bands are divided into three sections: first. WHAT DOES THE ORGANIC BEING CLUSTER LOOK LIKE? THE ORGANIC BAND IS FLUFFY. that is. and finally. THE ORGANIC BEING BAND WHAT DOES THE ORGANIC BEING BAND PRODUCE? THE ORGANIC BEING CLUSTER PRODUCES ALL THE ORGANIC BEINGS There is an immeasurable cluster that produces organic beings. WITH A PECULIAR ENERGY the emanations of that organic band have a sort of fluffiness.177 HOW ARE THE ORGANIC BEINGS ALIGNED ON THE BAND? THE ORGANIC BEINGS ARE BUBBLES FORMED ON DIFFERENT PLACES ON THE BAND: SOME IN THE CENTER AND SOME NEAR THE EDGES . bubbles of awareness. but edible nonetheless. Seven have sour fruit. FFW. That's the reason why all organic beings are filled with a peculiar consuming energy. FFW. FFW.. they jump. They are aware. and one has the most juicy. 40 bands that produce bubbles with emanations that produce no energetic awareness.

Their luminosity comes only from the energy of the encased emanations.177. bubbles that are close to the edges miss altogether the emanations that are in the center of the band. FFW. . (called vessels) . FFW. The product of the other forty great bands is not awareness at all..177. luminous strings with no end.vessels are rigid recepticles that hold emanations without being fields of energetic awareness. By the same token. Organic beings are bubbles that grow around a group of luminous filaments. FFW. FFW. but with a quality of opaqueness. FFW. the band is wide enough to aomadate every kind of organic being with room to spare.Think of it as an enormously wide band of luminous filaments. In such an arrangement. THE INORGANIC BEING BAND WHAT DO THE SEVEN INORGANIC BANDS PRODUCE? THE INORGANIC CLUSTER PRODUCES ALL THE INORGANIC BEINGS The same situation (as in the organic band) is prevalent in the inorganic bands.180 The seers counted 7 bands that produced inorganic bubbles of awareness.177.. Imagine that in this band of organic life some bubbles are formed around the luminous filaments in the center of the band.177 THE OTHER 40 GREAT BANDS OF EMANATIONS FOR EARTH WHAT ARE THE OTHER 40 GREAT BANDS LIKE? THE OTHER 40 BANDS PRODUCE BUBBLES/VESSELS WITHOUT AWARENESS There are 40 bands that produce bubbles without awareness those are bands that generate only organization. bubbles in the center miss the emanations from the edges.The three bundles of awareness produce specific kinds of inorganic beings in each of the seven great bands.. FFW. others are formed close to the edges.182 WHAT DO THESE OTHER 40 BANDS LOOK LIKE? THEY ARE OPAQUE AND DARKER THAN THE BANDS WITH AWARENESS The other bands are darker. but a configuration of inanimate energy. which are shared only by the bubbles that are aligned with the center.

underneath the dry leaves is the ground.237 . FFW..alignment is a unique force because it either helps the assemblage point... The intent and the effect are will. to command it.it is what makes the world.... which is at the service of each individual.40. EG..the will of the Eagle's emanations or intent.what he had seen was intent. They decided then that intent was a more appropriate name for it than will.POS.148 it is present throughout everything there is. Will is a force which was the true link between men and the world. to make it do things. This is why it is called will. They saw that this force had total consciousness and that it sprang from the very fields of energy that made the universe... intent is everywhere . they are tied together..40. the enormous earth. FFW.143 Will and Intent are essentially the same thing.. SR. gives rise to the intent to direct the second attention.. That blackness. the force permeates everything.189. FFW. It makes the world happen. EG..WILL/INTENT WHAT SUSTAINS OR CONTROLS THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS? WILL/INTENT IS THE FORCE THAT SUSTAINS OR CONTROLS THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS I was seeing the Eagle's emanations and the force that keeps them apart and bundles them together.TSC.intent is the purposeful guiding of will......147 WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WILL AND INTENT? WILL IS THE IMPERSONAL FORCE OF EAGLE'S EMANATIONS AND INTENT IS THE PERSONALIZED FORCE will is the impersonal force of alignment which changes into intent. . or it keeps it glued to its customary position. Will is used when describing the force that is holding up the universe in an objective manner and intent is used when that force changes .FFW. Intent is the power that upholds the universe.... POS..the new seers took a close look and called it will..110 .113. the personalized force..114. intent is the principle underneath everything.190 they realized that will was the force that kept the Eagle's emanations separated and was not responsible for our awareness... and the aspect that makes it shift is intent..98 Without intent there was nothing.148 . FFW. FFW. but also for everything in the universe.. EG.98 . It is a force that gives focus to everything.243. EG.237.....the aspect of alignment that keeps the assemblage point stationary is will . that silence...the energy that comes out of of the alignment of emanations.. TSC.

134 it is an abstract force. Will is what sends a sorcerer through a wall. it is not a thought. something very clear and powerful which can direct our acts. there is a universal force which holds everything in place and that force can be manipulated.147 What you yourself call will is character and strong disposition. the meaning is the same.made up of pure energy. However. It is kind of a control over ourselves. ceaseless burst of energy that makes us behave in the ways we do. Intent is . 28). POS.FFW.170.intent has no desires of its own.148Will is what can make you sueed when your thoughts tell you that you're defeated.. WHAT IS INTENT? INTENT IS AN ABSTRACT UNMEASUREABLE..

INDESCRIBABLE. will has also been confusingly described as also a personalized power... has to do with astonishing feats that defy our common sense.. POS.. . . However.

INTENT IS CONNECTED TO EVERYTHING that absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link. POS,10,22... people and all living creatures are slaves of intent. We are in its clutches. It makes us do whatever it wants. It makes us act in the world. It makes us die. EG,148

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT NAMES OF INTENT BESIDES WILL?

THE NAMES OF INTENT .....Intent which sorcerers call the spirit, the abstract, the nagual.. POS, 28 .....the spirit is the force that sustains the universe (POS,114) Don Juan had explained the nagual to me as being the indescribable force, the source of everything... the nagual is in everything. SRP,198 The nagual is aware of everything...,TOP,129. there was only one thing which was indispensable for anything we did. He called it the spirit. ,JTI, the rolling force or the tumbling or circular force. FFW,241...the tumbler is the force from the Eagle's emanations..FFW,241. The left side, called the naugal, .states of heightened awareness, or the site of the second attention. EG,163. ....will is such a complete control of the second attention that it is called the other self. EG,144..will belongs to the other self. EG,143.......Powers that guide can be called...forces, spirits, airs, winds, or anything like that. ,JTI,86. Since intent is the undescribable force of the universe, it thus has many names. Everything is just an interpretation of that force.

HOW DOES INTENT APPEAR TO PEOPLE?

INTENT MANIFESTS ITSELF DIFFERENTLY IN DIFFERENT THINGS it is an all-encompassing force that manifests itself differently in different things. TSC,83.

CAN INTENT COMMUNICATE WITH US?

YES, DIRECT CONTACT WITH INTENT IS CALLED SILENT KNOWLEDGE

silent knowledge.. this is direct contact with intent. POS,115... Silent Knowledge has complete mastery, complete knowledge of everything.. but it cannot think, therefore, it cannot speak of what it knows..it is of course, intent- the spirit, the abstract. , POS,155 Everything has a form... but besides the outer shape, there is an inner awareness that rules things. This silent awareness is the spirit. TSC,83. This energy communicates with us. TSC,83.

ANOTHER NAME FOR SILENT KNOWLEDGE IS THE THIRD POINT silent knowlege is the third point because in order to get to it one had to pass the second point, the place of no pity. (ruthlessness) POS,242

HOW DOES INTENT COMMUNICATE WITH US?

Voice of the spirit

WHAT IS THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIT?

THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIT IS MORE OF A FEELING The voice of the spirit is an abstraction that has nothing to do with voices, and yet we may at times hear voices...TSC,85 ...don't expect a shout from the treetops... what we call the voice of the spirit is more of a feeling. Or it can be an idea that suddenly pops into your head. Sometimes it can be a longing to go somewhere vaguely familiar, or a longing to do something also vaguely familiar. TSC,84 If the spirit (intent) speaks to you, using its silent words, you will certainly know immediately what the spirit is. , POS,51 .It was not a voice it was lots of voices. TSC,85. ....will is very quiet, unnoticeable EG,143

HOW DO WE UNDERSTAND THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIT/INTENT?

INTENT CAN ONLY BE UNDERSTOOD THROUGH EXPERIENCE AND WE CAN ONLY TALK ABOUT ITS EFFECTS. there is no way to talk about it except metaphorically.. TSC,40 the nagual is only effect. ,TOP,138. in order to talk about it we must borrow from the island of the tonal(reason), therefore it is more convienient not to explain it but simply recount its effects. ,TOP,129. silent knowledge can't be reasoned out. It can only be experienced. POS,247 The left side is perhaps comprehended, if comprehension is what takes place, with the total body, thus its

resistence to conceptualization. EG,163.. By intending it, but not with your thoughts.. Intent is so far away from thoughts that we can't talk about it; we can't even feel it. But we can certainly use it. TSC,142

DESCRIPTION OF EXPERIENCING THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIT .... Taisha's experience description of.. (jumping and dancing to people singing in the wind)..TSC,84... When I finally came to sit down next to Clara, I was perspiring, but it was not a healthy physical sweat, It was more like the cold sweat of exhaustion. TSC,84...

HOW CAN WE HEAR THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIT?

WHEN WE ARE ABSOLUTELY QUIET AND BALANCED The voice of the spirit comes from nowhere.. it comes from the depth of silence, from the realm of not-being. That voice can only be heard when we are absolutely quiet and balanced. TSC,87.

INTENT ONLY RESPONDS TO POWER NOT PRAYER a force that has no interest whatsoever in us, but that nevertheless responds to our own power. Not to our prayers, mind you, but to our power. TSC,85 it is where power hovers, but that was only a way of alluding to it. By reason of its effect, perhaps the nagual can be best understood in terms of power. ,TOP,138. But the spirit is nobody's guardian.. TSC,85

HOW DOES INTENT AFFECT US?

Intent is continously being produced from the Eagle's emanations and is hitting us all the time. We are not aware that it is constantly hitting us but it is the force that gives us both life and eventually caries us to our death. That force is named the rolling force.

ROLLING FORCE

WHAT IS THE ROLLING FORCE?

THE ROLLING FORCE IS THE INTENT FORCE FROM THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS THAT CONTROL ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE AND DEATH FOR THE ORGANIC AND INORGANIC BEINGS The rolling force is an eternal line of iridescent rings or balls of fire, that roll onto living beings ceaselessly. FFW,243 The rolling force or balls of fire are expression of a force that pertains to all details of life and death. FFW,242. The rolling force is the means through which the Eagle distributes life and awareness for safekeeping..but it is also a force..that makes all living beings die. FFW,243

DEATH IS THE ROLLING FORCE. Death is the rolling force. FFW,245.

WHAT MAKES UP THE ROLLING FORCE?

THE BALANCE BETWEEN THE TWO FORCES(TUMBLING AND CIRCULAR) IS A DELICATE ONE The balance of the two forces in every living being is a delicate one. FFW,248.

The tumbling force and the circular force.

TUMBLING FORCE

WHAT IS THE TUMBLING FORCE?

THE TUMBLING FORCE IS THE PART OF THE ROLLING FORCE THAT RELATES TO DESTRUCTION AND DEATH the tumbling aspect of the RF relates exclusively to destruction and death. FFW,247. a ceaseless force that strikes us every instant of our lives. FFW,241.

CIRCULAR FORCE

WHAT IS THE CIRCULAR FORCE?

THE CIRCULAR FORCE IS THE PART OF THE ROLLING FORCE THAT MAINTAINS LIFE AND AWARENESS, FULFILLMENT AND PURPOSE the circular aspect.. is what maintains life and awareness, fulfillment and purpose. FFW,247. it strikes all living beings ceaselessly, but for a different purpose. It strikes them to give them strength, direction, awareness; to give them life. FFW,248

WHY IS IT CALLED THE CIRCULAR FORCE?

THE CIRCULAR FORCE COMES IN RINGS, THREADLIKE LOOPS OF IRIDESCENCE The reason they call it the circular force is that it comes in rings, threadlike loops of iridescence - a very delicate affair indeed... FFW,248

ARE THEY REALLY CIRCLES?

YOU ONLY SENSE THE FEELINGS OF RINGS WHICH FIT ALL ORGANIC AND INORGANIC BEINGS There are no circles to speak of, just a circular force..the feelings of rings..there are no different sizes either. It's one indivisible force that fits all living beings, organic and inorganic. FFW,248.

HOW DO THE TWO FORCES HIT US?

THE CIRCULAR FORCE HITS US JUST BEFORE THE TUMBLING FORCE The new seers saw that both forces are fused but are not the same. the circular force comes to us just before the tumbling force...they are so close to each other that they seem the same. FFW,248.

B.) LUMINOUS BEINGS/ LUMINOUS EGGS
WHAT ARE ALL LIVING CREATURES REALLY?

ALL LIVING CREATURES ARE ENERGY BUBBLES MADE FROM THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS living creatures are really luminous beings that look like bubbles of whitish light...sentient beings are minute bubbles made out of those filaments, microscopic points of light, attached to the infinite emanations... FFW,66,67 we are a feeling and that what we call our body is a cluster of luminous fibers that have awareness. TOP,94 (our energy body).. it is linked to some luminous lines of energy crisscrossing the universe. TSC,138 The double is nearly infinite.. for just as the physical is in communication with other physical bodies, the double is in communication with the universal life force. TSC,186 (the double) it is inherently the energy of a luminous being, EG,23 Luminous Beings ...the energy essence of human beings TAOD, 5 we are luminous beings. We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have solidity. We are boundless. TOP,97. human beings are frail creatures composed of many layers of luminosity SRP,253 DOES EVERY CREATURE HAVE A BODY OF ENERGY? YES, EVERYTHING HAS A BODY OF ENERGY Not only living beings but everything in our world glimmers with an inner light of its own TAOD,175 All of us luminous beings have a double. TOP,58..the double is oneself and cannot be faced in any other way. the double is not a matter of personal choice..TOP,58

It is not clear if inanimate objects have energy associated with them. WHAT ARE SOME OTHER NAMES FOR THIS BODY OF ENERGY? luminous egg, luminous ball (the egg)is our energy self (which is our double). TAOD,11 ..cocoons and containers are fields of energetic awareness. FFW,182 energy body, other, double, self, (the dreaming body is known by different names FFW, 291) the energetic or nonrational side, which sorcerers call the double TSC,xii The ethereal body.TSC,114. The other is the self..the double is the self TOP,46 Again, like the term intent, the energy body has many names. The term luminous egg/ball is the energy body but is used as the container of the energy body. WHAT EXACTLY IS THE ENERGY BODY? PURE ENERGY Since it's pure energy, EG,23

THE ENERGY BODY IS PURE ENERGY SO HAS AN APPEARANCE BUT NO MASS A ghostlike configuration made of pure energy....has only appearance but no mass. EG,23

IT IS THE AWARENESS OF OURSELVES AS LUMINOUS BEINGS

As far as I know, the double is the awareness of our state as luminous beings. TOP,60

THE DOUBLE BEGINS IN DREAMING, THE DOUBLE IS A DREAM ....the double begins in dreaming..the double is a dream..TOP,64.

THE DOUBLE IS THE SORCERER HIMSELF, DEVELOPED THROUGH HIS DREAMING. The double is the sorcerer himself, developed through his dreaming. A double is an act of power to a sorcerer, but only a tale of power to you. TOP,47. ...instead of eyes, the dreaming body has just the glow of awareness (two points of intense amber lights..FFW,197) FFW,199...in the case of Genaro, his double is indistinguishable from the original. That's because his impeccability as a warrior is supreme. TOP,48

A 3-D IMAGE OF THE BODY WHEN SECOND ATTENTION IS FIXED a whitish, phantomlike emanation, which is projected by the fixation of the second attention into a 3-D image of the body. EG,23....

A PERFECT REPLICA OF THE DREAMER'S BODY ...the double is a perfect replica of the dreamer's body.(it looks exactly like oneself. SRP,176) EG,23

IT WAS TWICE THE SIZE OF THE PERSON WHO HAD IT they had always called that shape the double, because it was twice the size of the person who had it. SRP,199.

IT WAS SHINY ..It was like you, but very shiny.(may refer to Naugal) SRP,149

FOR A SORCERER THAT SEES THE DOUBLE IS BRIGHTER for a sorcerer that sees the double is brighter. TOP,46.

NO WAY OF KNOWING BUT IT IS REAL

..there is no way of knowing what the other is made of..but it is real..TOP,46 It is not a ghost, but as real as anything we deal with in the world. EG,23

THE DOUBLE IS SOLID AND CORPOREAL..SOLIDITY, CORPOREALNESS ARE MEMORIES. (the double is solid and corporeal)..solidity, corporealness are memories. therefore, like everything else we feel about the world, they are memories we accumulate. memories of the description. You have the memory of my solidity, the same way you have the memory of communicating through words. Thus, you talked with a coyote and you feel me as being solid. TOP,51.

OTHER ALWAYS COME SHROUDED IN WIND Dreaming body or the other (this term belongs to the old seers...it gives me a feeling of darkness, of shadows...the other always comes shrouded in wind FFW,291).... FFW,199

How the energy body is described depends on the sorcere's interpretation.. in the end its just energy. DOES OUR ENERGY BODY BELONG TO THE PHYSICAL BODY? THE ENERGY BODY IS THE COUNTERPART TO THE PHYSICAL BODY Energy body...it's the counterpart of the physical body. EG,23 The soft body is a mass of energy...we are aware of only its hard, outer casing.TSC,133 The double. The counterpart of the physical body, which by know you must know.. is not merely a projection of the mind. TSC,114. . ...the double is our energy source. The physical body is merely the receptacle where that energy has been placed. TSC,237. the double is both inside and outside the physical body... at the same time... TSC, 159.

WHAT IS THE REAL DIVISION IN HUMANS?

THE REAL DIVISION IS BETWEEN THE PHYSICAL BODY WHICH HOUSES THE MIND AND THE ENERGY BODY WHICH HOUSES OUR ENERGY The body-mind dualism is a false dichotomy. The real division is between the physical body, which houses the mind, and the ethereal body or the double which houses our energy. TSC,62. but our division is not between the mind and the body, but between the body, which houses the mind or the self, and the double, which is the receptacle of our basic energy. TSC,43 Human beings are divided in two. EG,163.... all the faculties, possibilities, and accomplishments of sorcery, from the simplest to the most astounding, are in the human body itself. EG,163. The two sides of a human being are totally seperate EG,228. The tonal

and the nagual are the two inherent parts of ourselves.. they cannot be led into each other. TOP,244. WHAT SEPERATES THE PHYSICAL BODY AND THE ENERGY BODY? THE TWO SIDES ARE SEPERATED BY A MEMBRANE the membrane that seperates their two sides. EG,230 WHAT DOES OUR ENERGY LOOK LIKE? OUR ENERGY WAVERS LIKE A HEAT WAVE, IT SCINTILLATES . our energy wavers..TAOD,164...organic beings energy are more like heat waves. FFW,121...our energy scintillates. TAOD,175 WHAT DETERMINES THE LUMINOSITY OF A LIVING CREATURE? THE LUMINOSITY IS DETERMINED BY THE PARTICULAR PORTION OF EMANATIONS FOUND IN THAT PARTICULAR COCOON. the luminosity of living beings is made by the particular portion of the Eagle's emanations they happen to have inside their luminous cocoons. FFW,66,67

WE ARE LUMINOUS BECAUSE WE ARE PIECES OF THE SUN We are pieces of the sun. (we are all like the sun, but very, very faint) That is why we are luminous beings. But our eyes can't see that luminosity because it is very faint. Our light is too weak, but it is light anyway. SRP,123. ARE THE EMANATIONS INSIDE THE BUBBLES THE SAME AS THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS OUTSIDE? THE EMANATION PATTERNS ARE THE SAME INSIDE AND OUT BUT SOME OF OUR EMANATIONS ARE LOCATED AS MUCH AS 3 FEET OUTSIDE THE PHYSICAL BODY. The emanations inside and the emanations outside are the same filaments of light. FFW,66,67 Human beings are also composed of an incalculable number of the same threadlike energy fields.POS,13, FFW,62 some beams of light or energy allegedly crisscross the earth... these beams do not fluctuate as everything else in the universe does, but are fixed into a pattern. This pattern coincides with hundreds of points in the luminous body...since the luminous body is quite big, some of the points are as much as three feet away from the physical body. In a sense they are outside of us, and yet they are not; they are on the periphery of our luminosity and thus still belong to the total body. EG,196. WHAT DO YOU CALL THE EMANATIONS OUTSIDE THE PHYSICAL BODY BUT STILL WITHIN THE COCOON?

THE EMANATIONS INSIDE THE COCOON BUT LOCATED OUTSIDE THE PHYSICAL BODY IS CALLED THE ETHEREAL NET The ethereal net is the luminosity that surrounds the physical body... TSC,134 WHAT DO YOU CALL THE EMANATIONS OUTSIDE THE COCOON? WE CALL THE EMANATIONS OUTSIDE THE COCOON, THE EMANATIONS AT LARGE ...emanations at large.. are called this because they are immense. FFW,225.. The emanations outside the cocoon.. are called emanations at large. FFW,141

WHAT SHAPE DO THE EMANATIONS FORM? THE EMANATIONS AGGLOMERATE INTO A GIANT LUMINOUS EGG These Eagle's emanations form an encased agglomeration that manifests itself as a ball of light the size of a person's body with the arms extended laterally, like a giant luminous egg. POS,13, FFW,62 ..human beings were, for those who saw, luminous beings composed of something like fibers of light, which rotated from the front to the back and maintained the appearance of an egg. SR,106 ..men are fibers of light.. like white cobwebs. Very fine threads that circulate from the head to the navel. Thus a man looks like an egg of circulating fibers. And his arms and legs are like luminous bristles, bursting out in all directions. SR,23 When you see them, they seem to have fibers, but those fibers are really like layers, like an onion. EG,45 WHAT DO SORCERER'S EGGS LOOK LIKE? SORCERERS HAVE EGGS SHAPED LIKE TOMBSTONES Average human beings are like eggs... sorcerers are like tombstones; only we are round at both ends. SRP,210. WERE OUR LUMINOUS SHAPES ALWAYS SHAPED LIKE AN EGG? THE LUMINOUS SHAPE KEEPS CHANGING THROUGHOUT TIME, OUR SHAPES TODAY ARE REALLY MORE LIKE A BALL AND THE EGG SHAPE IS REALLY ASSOCIATED WITH PEOPLE OF ANCIENT TIMES. Don Juan had the impression that our energy shape keeps on changing through time. He said that every seer he knew, himself included, saw that human beings are shaped more like balls or even tombstones than eggs. But, once in awhile, and for no reason known to them sorcerers see a person whose energy is shaped like an egg. Don Juan suggested that people who are egglike in shape today are more akin to people of ancient times. TAOD,5 WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE LUMINOUS EGG? THE EGG IS A CONTAINER THAT HOLDS OUR ENERGY BODY

...the egglike shape is an external cocoon, a shell of luminosity that houses a most intriguing, haunting, mesmeric core made up of concentric circles of yellowish luminosity, the color of a candle's flame.... .EG,220.... the egg shaped shells were actually dull. the luminosity emanated from a brilliant core; the shell in fact dulled its radiance. EG,220... WHAT ARE SOME CHACTERISTICS OF THE LUMINOUS EGG? THE EGG IS MUCH BIGGER THAN THE HUMAN BODY, 7 FT HIGH BY 4 FT WIDE ...much bigger than the human body TAOD, 5... they were enormous, perhaps seven feet high by four feet wide or even larger. EG,41

SRP,79,80,82 Zuleica ordered me to massage that place, to manipulate it by moving the fingers of both my hands right on that point as if I were playing a harp. She assured me that sooner or later I would end up feeling my fingers going through something as thick as water, and that finally I would feel my luminous shell. EG,253.

THE LUMINOUS EGGS ARE BRIGHT BLOBS OF LIGHT, VIBRANT AND FILLED WITH WHITENESS ....bright shapes that resemble giant eggs (a field of energy.)

SRP,123 .....a blob of light FFW,270 ..the dreaming body is really just a blob of light. FFW,198

LUMINOUS EGGS HAVE SETS OF LONG FIBERS COMING FROM THE NAVEL AREA The most astonishing part of the egg-like creatures was a set of long fibers that came out of the area around the navel; those fibers were of the uttermost importance in the life of a man. SR,106 Then I realized that the energy to move them had come from a sticklike protuberance that acted upon them as a tentacle. It was balanced at the midpoint of my body.EG,155. everyman is in touch with everything else, not through his hands, though, but through a bunch of long fibers that shoot out from the center of his abdomen. SR,23 They are the tentacles that come out of a man's body which are apparent to any sorcerer who sees. SR,106.

THE FIBERS ARE NOT LIKE TOUCHING. One can feel it coming out (from the belly) SR. for there was nothing to protect. the will was a force that emanated from the umbilical region through an unseen opening below the navel.8 WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE EGG'S LONG FIBERS THAT COME OUT FROM THE NAVEL ARE? THE FIBERS DO NOT PROTECT YOU BUT INSTEAD THEY GUIDE YOUR NAGUAL'S PERCEPTION LIKE THE WAY YOUR EYES GUIDE THE TONAL'S PERCEPTION I had long. they give him stability. WITH THE FIBERS YOU CAN PERCEIVE EVERYTHING AT ONCE They told me that my fibers were all around me. FFW. There were no particular tactile qualities on which to base distinctions. but that they were there to guide my nagual's perception in very much the same way my eyes guided my normal tonal's perception.148 The energy needed in order to move and seek in dreaming stems from the area an inch or two below the belly button...TOP..

He drew an egglike shape and divided it in four longitudinal sections. fibers that had a light of their own. He then drew a thick band at the line between the first and second sections and erased the division lines. HOW DO PEOPLE SEE THE LUMINOUS EGGS? THE LUMINOSITY OF A HUMAN CAN ALMOST BE SEEN THROUGH LOOKING BUT THE ONLY TRUE WAY IS BY THE SORCERER'S SEEING Man's luminosity can be seen almost as if one were using the eyes alone...I was seeing two strange elongated luminous objects.240.seers see them (assemblage and glow) without their eyes. I knew I had definitly crossed them.238.. Now if that ball of jack cheese were transparent. The front plate is about one-fifth the thickness of the total cocoon. It was rather a ball of white fire.

She explained that these three points are the key centers of the three chambers. WHERE DO MEN AND WOMEN STORE THEIR ENERGY?. where women store their energy. MEN STORE IT IN THEIR MIDSECTION. where men have a surplus of it. and the center from where all those changes radiated was definitely in my stomach. The fluctuations around me came from my stomach. then my solar plexus and then the center of my forehead.125 THERE IS A DELICATE GLOW AROUND THE STOMACH AND IS ALWAYS BEING PULLED AROUND BY EVERYTHING Human beings had a very delicate glow around the stomach and that glow was always being pulled by everything around. I was creating a world.133 THE BODY IS DIVIDED INTO THREE MAIN CHAMBERS OF ENERGY: ABDOMEN. TSC. over Josefina's womb. In a woman both the attention and the energy for dreaming originate from the womb. THE FEELINGS/WORLD WERE CREATED FROM THE STOMACH What was in front of my eyes was rather like a feeling or a mood.

HEIGHTENED AWARENESS IS A SHALLOW SHIFT OF THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT WHERE THE GLOW GOES DEEPER IN THE LUMINOUS COCOON AND THE SHINE IS MORE INTENSE ON THE SURFACE OF THE COCOON HA is a shallow shift of the AP..a state of HA is seen not only as a glow that goes deeper inside the egglike shape of human beings.

TAOD. which I enjoyed for short periods of time and in which I could understand anything with minamal preambles. it seemed that everything in that state (HA) went faster. everything that had become hazy after the naugal's blow became crystal clear as I breathed.165. because one's total concentration is taken by the details of the action. EG.. such displacements meant that my awareness used to enter into a most disturbing state of unequaled clarity.. The closest I can come is to say that it created a feeling like dryness in me. 17 GREAT ALERTNESS I couldn't believe that I was listening to her every word.165. SPEEDING: AN INCOMPARABLE RICHNESS OF PERSONAL INTERACTION Another feature (besides clarity) of those states of HA was the incomparable richness of personal interaction. EG.. Every facet of activity was free of preliminaries or introductions. a state of superconsciousness... Then.13. It may have been that my reasoning faculties were numbed by DJ's blow. EG. TAOD.great clarity of mind. in these states of HA we had perceived everything in one clump. On the left side I could grasp the meaning of things with precision and directness. On the left side. yet nothing in the world had been changed. a richness that our bodies understood as a sensation of speeding. INTENSITY: CAN PERCEIVE EVERYTHING AT ONCE IN A MASS OF DETAIL intensity is the ability to perceive everything at once. transforming my habitual bored indifference into a most unusual alertness. Most of the time it was like a strange dream so intense that normal awareness paled by comparison. to la Gorda. POS.165. everything stood by itself.164. EG. Some major change had definitly taken place. I acted and rested. there is an inherent need for economy and speed..40. I went forth and retreated without any of the thought processes that are usual to me. 17 CLARITY .164. instead it brought on a sensation impossible to describe.. thus allowing me to perceive without their intervention..

FFW. the transparency of the luminous egg creates the impression of a movement toward the left. FFW.68 SHIFT ALONG THE MIDSECTION A DREAMER WHO IS SHIFTING ALONG THE MIDSECTION BECOMES A BLOB OF LIGHT.FEELING OF COMPLETENESS I had come to regard those incomprehensible states as being my true self....on those states I felt complete.a shift of the point from one side to the other along the width of man's band of emanations instead of a shift in depth. FFW. the dreamer who is shifting along the midsection becomes a blob of light.but the new seers kept the name. There was one simple reason for that.Since the shift of the AP was always in depth. that such a directional preference is a natural reaction of most human beings. into the center of the luminous egg along the thickness of man's band.. SHIFTING IS ORDINARILY TOWARDS THE LEFT/A NATURAL REACTION FOR HUMAN BEINGS the movement ordinarily is toward the left.141 To see the glow of the AP moving inside that disk gives the feeling it is shifting toward the left on the surface of the cocoon.270. I was more aware than ever of the limitation of my being.. I had never lost my sense of identity in spite of the fact that I was always using emanations I had never used before. The anger and the sadness were a reaction to impotence.140.

IT IS CALLED THE MOLD OF MAN BECAUSE THE CLUSTER APPEARS ONLY INSIDE THE COCOON OF MAN It is called the mold of man because the cluster appears only inside the cocoon of man. but the pattern of every human attribute we can think of and some we cannot even conceive of.. there was no way for that force to assemble itself into the shape of man.281 We are simply the product of its stamp. that what we call God is a static prototype of humanness without any power.. FFW.138. we are its impression. or reward us in any way. SRP. The new seers are the only ones who have the sobriety to see the mold of man and understand what it is. the origin of man.282.

IT IS A STATIC PROTOTYPE OF HUMANNESS WITHOUT ANY POWER The new seers have seen. He said that it was like a gigantic die that stamps out human beings endlessly as if they were coming to it on a mass-production conveyor belt. FFW. The mold of man is the portion of the Eagle's emanations that seers can see directly without any dangers to themselves.140.a pattern. a cast that groups together a particular bunch of fiberlike elements which we call man..280. The mold of man is exactly what its name tells us it is.. What they have come to realize is that the mold of man is not a creator.. For the mold of man cannot under circumstances help us by intervening in our behalf. IT IS AN ENTITY WHICH WE ALL SEE AT THE MOMENT OF OUR DEATH The mold of man was definitely an entity.

The human mold glows and it is always found in water holes and narrow gullies. a sense of peace and rest. if the shift is in the midsection of man's band. understanding. I felt happy and strong. Without water there is no mould. love. but DJ intervened and whacked me on my left upper chest. He said that I had to go beyond the mold. FFW. FFW. I was left with a tantalizing feeling. It was a radiant.138. FFW. And nothing else mattered. I could not look at it. I did fall on my knees. I wanted to worship God personified. Then the idea came to me that its beauty t of a sense of harmony. of being safe at long last. Then I heard DJ's voice in my ear. the mold is a human being. sincerity. it sounded like it but it wasn't.283. SRP. delivered. SHIFT TO THE MIDSECTION OF MAN'S BAND IT IS A LIGHT There are two ways of seeing the mold of man. SRP.288. A man total of all that is good. static. But being in its presence was enough. It was simply a luminous human. a mixture of remorse. SRP.139. That depends on the shift of the AP. a stopover that brought temporary peace and serenity to those who journey into the unknown. mainly for myself. certainties.. The splendor of the sight was beyond anything I can say and yet I could not figure out what it was that made it so beautiful. DESCRIPTION OF SEEING THE MOLD OF MAN He hit me on my right side. if the shift is lateral. the light seemed to condense and I saw a man.. SRP. And I knew that God loved me.140.284. doubts.. truth.

The sight of that resplendent light made me feel unworthy.FFW. I saw that light for an immeasurable length of time.As I gazed into the light with all the passion I was capable of. FFW. THE MOLD OF MAN'S POSITION ON THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT IS CLOSE TO WHERE THE DREAMING BODY AND BARRIER OF PERCEPTION APPEAR The position of the AP where one sees the mold of man is very close to that where the dreaming body and the barrier of perception appear. That blow sent me soaring into a radiant light. It feeds on water. between my hipbone and ny ribcage. the mold is a light. an oasis in the blackness around me. The light bathed me and I felt clean. I wept uncontrollably.139. FFW.THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO SEEING THE MOLD OF MAN: AS A MAN OR AS A LIGHT IT DEPENDS ON THE SHIFT OF THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT: LATERAL SHIFT IT IS A HUMAN BEING. the source of everything. It was at the same time a flat reflected image in a mirror and the mirror itself.288. just being there was all I wanted.

155 THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT DOESN'T REMAIN THERE LONG IN ACCIDENTAL SHIFTS the AP doesn't remain there long. The new seers call that shift the shift below seers also suffer accidental shifts below.155 DOWNSHIFTS DIMINISHES THE POWER OF THE SORCERER CONSIDERABLY Everytime it occurs.154. FFW. IT IS NOT GOOD TO GO BELOW EVEN THOUGH IT IS EASY TO DO To go below is counter to our interest. FFW. because that is the place of beast FFW. one of the most grievous was moving their AP to the immeasurable area below. and that's fortunate.154. They believed that by moving their AP to specific spots they would acquire the characteristics of the animal of their choice. but that such a downshift becomes less and less frequent as their AP move farther to the left. FFW. It is a drawback that takes time and great effort to correct.FFW. its strength or wisdom or cunning or agility or ferocity.155 . FFW.. the power of a seer undergoing it dimishes considerably...154. They chose different animals as their point of reference and called those animals their naugal. THE OLD SORCERERS MADE THE MISTAKE OF GOING TO THE PLACE BELOW ALOT AND BECAME OBSESSED among the many errors of judgement the old seers had committed.THE SHIFT BELOW/PLACE OF THE BEAST A SHIFT THAT IS BELOW THE HABITUAL POSITION OF THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT/NOT A SHIFT IN DEPTH but there are seers who can direct that movement to positions below the customary spot where the point is located.FFW. DOWNSHIFTS OCCUR LESS FREQUENT AS THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT MOVES FARTHER TO THE LEFT/DEPTH .an unwitting downshift occurs periodically to every seer. however. which made them experts at adopting animal forms..154. although its the easiest thing to do.

FFW. FFW. Female seers have downshifts more often than males. and a matchless ferocity.183 DEATH IS MORE OF A PROBLEM IN A DOWNSHIFT THAN IT IS IN THE HABITUAL POSITION the only problem is that in those positions of the AP. a shift below allows the seer a detailed and narrow view of the world we know. SHIFT BELOW IS THE SAME WORLD BUT FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE A shift below entailed a view. Men cannot. which happens even more brutally and more quickly than in man's position. reproduce an animal form with flare.. FFW. not of another world proper but our same world of everyday life seen from a different perspective. the vision of sorcerer becomes limited.156 He said that also women seers have an extraordinary capacity to make their AP hold on to any position in the area below.VISION BECOMES LIMITED IN A SHIFT BELOW when the AP moves to the regions below its normal position..156. while males linger dangerously in it..175. seers are plaqued by death.

which is almost the place where the barrier of perception makes its appearance.302.65 THE TRANSITION PERIOD IS ALSO WHEN THE DEEPEST LEARNING TAKES PLACE the transition period is the time when the deepest learning takes place and that it is also a time when warriors must be supervised and explanations must be given to them so they can evaluate them properly. for I would unavoidably be struck at one time or another by gripping feelings of defeat.248 . that seems to belong to our perceivable world is just the force of alignment.279 THE WORLD DISAPPEARS WHEN THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT MOVES PAST THE MIDLINE OF THE COCOON OF MAN a displacement of the AP beyond the midline of the cocoon of man makes the entire world vanish from our view in one instant. it ceases to be what it is to us at man's level. FFW. FFW. they will be great sorcerers but poor seers. before one enters fully into the leftside awareness.. as the ancient Toltecs were. one is capable of tremendous concentration.

He warned me to be on the lookout and not lose confidence. warriors fall prey to every conceivable misdeed.65 THE TRANSITION PERIOD IS CALLED THE NETHERWORLD netherworld is (the region between our world and the inorganic being's world) TAOD.there was an unmeasurable area of awareness in between the customary position of the AP and the position where there are no doubts.. the world vanishes. . as if it had been erased-for the stability. He added that if the AP moves beyond a crucial threshold. If no explanations are given to them before they enter into the left side..

.291 WHAT WILL WE PERCEIVE THERE? A SPECIAL RECESS OF AWARENESS CALLED THE WALL OF FOG OR THE BARRIER OF PERCEPTION/CRACK BETWEEN THE WORLDS a special recess of awareness.276 (1) It could be taken abstractly as a barrier of perception. which was the site of the keenest form of attention.276 (3) or it could be seen as a wall of fog.. We experience it as a moment of perceptual blankness. FFW. POS.111)..FFW.154. IT IS A POSITION WHERE THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT CANNOT ALIGN EMANATIONS AND WE EXPERIENCE IT AS A MOMENT OF PERCEPTUAL BLANKNESS AND A BANK OF FOG APPEARS when the AP is moving away from its customary position and reaches a certain depth.RECOLLECTING THE DREAMING BODY WOULD PUT THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT IN A POSITION TO BREAK THE BARRIER OF PERCEPTION the recollection of the dreaming body would put my AP in a position to break the barrier of perception in order to assemble another world.276 WE NEED ONLY PART OF OUR AWARENESS TO GET TO THE FOG BUT TO CROSS BODILY INTO THE OTHER WORLDS REQUIRES OUR ENTIRE BEING . FFW.the crack between the worlds was more than a metaphor.276 THERE ARE THREE WAYS ON INTERPRETING THIS AREA OF NONPERCEPTION: CAN BE THOUGHT OF ABSTRACTLY. One of its main features. EG.276 (2) it could be felt as the act of piercing a tight paper screen with the entire body.. was that in that state we were able to perceive a colossal bank of yellowish vapor. it was rather the capacity to change levels of attention. IT CAN FEEL LIKE PIERCING A TIGHT PAPER SCREEN WITH THE ENTIRE BODY OR SEEN AS A WALL OF FOG There were three ways of dealing with it.the old seers called that moment the wall of fog. (Nonperception where the AP had moved but not far enough to reach and light a totally new bundle of energy fields. EG. THE CRACK BETWEEN THE WORLDS IS THE CAPACITY TO CHANGE LEVELS OF ATTENTION . FFW.244. it breaks a barrier that momentarily disrupts its capacity to align emanations. SRP. because a bank of fog appears whenever the alignment of emanations falters..

A WOMAN MUST BE TRANSPORTED THROUGH THE FOG A woman has to be transported through the fog. ANYBODY WHO HAS LIFE FORCE CAN GIVE IT TO OTHERS BY BLOWING ON THEM anybody who has life force can give it to others by blowing on them. YOU CAN ONLY ENTER THE FOG WITH AWARENESS OR THE LIFE FORCE IS EXHAUSTED BY THE PHYSICAL PRESSURE OF THAT WORLD the rule says that one could only enter in there with awareness.241.That other side is the world of the diableros. dividing it in two.. And other things even more fierce... THERE IS A GREAT PRESSURE IN THE FOG . and rotating when we moved our heads....the heavier regions. ORGANIC BEINGS/DIABLEROS COME FROM THE FOG .To venture behind the wall of fog. EG. EG.

EG.155)...104. to infinity. PIERCING THE WALL/EASIER IN DREAMING . It went from the ground up to the sky.. the axis of the bank of fog went from east to west. ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WALL OF FOG/NO-MAN'S LAND/LIMBO/AREA BETWEEN THE PARALLEL LINES the space between the world we know and the other world. But in order to leave this world and reach the other.The world was divided in two at a level my intellect could not comprehend. (the fog was extending forward to the horizon and up to infintiy. I was looking at the world divided in two by the wall of fog and at the same time I was staring directly at a bank of yellowish vapor.239.58. The division seemed real.. EG.. I was there twice. INTENT IS THE KEY TO STOPPING THE WALL I realized that intent was the key. I close my eyes and I see this wall.. EG.155). EG. Everything to the north of that line was the world as I knew it.154).. a special aspect of my intent because it was not my volition as I know it. DJ made me turn a few degrees to my right.105.. divided the world in two. EG.153. we can go to it in dreaming. It was three or four yards to my right (always to my right. EG.this enables the warrior to face the wall and give him the power to go through it anytime he so desired. Both times I had written off the experience because it had been brought around by the ingestion of hallucinogenic plants.EG... EG. EG. but the boundry was not on a physical plane..105 DESCRIPTION OF THE WALL OF FOG Earlier with DJ. It was a peculiar nervousness that made me shudder and then turn it into a force that did not really stop the wall. It's like a wall of fog. Or was it? EG... thus dividing the world in two. (The wall of fog would turn either to the right or to the left as I turned my head.153. The latter view gained predominance and something pulled me into the fog and beyond it. the one beyond the parallel lines. and I saw that the wall of fog moved as I turned my head.. EG.it was an accomplishment when the warrior had the serentity and control to stop the rotation of the wall.the half of the world to my left was intact and the half to my right was veiled in fog. the result was that for an instant I had two points of view.. It is the area between the parallel lines..... we have to go through that area with our whole bodies..... it had to be somehow in myself. It was an intense desire that was focused on the midpoint of my body. and it was an inconceivable bank of yellowish fog that.153 . ..It is easier to pierce the wall of fog in dreaming because then it does not move... so there was never a way for me to face it...

and I was looking at the desolate plain. And there stands a skin that seperates the two worlds.DESCRIPTION OF NO-MAN'S LAND BEYOND THE WALL OF FOG He pushed me into the fog. it seemed gaseous. EG. sand-dune-like mounds. one perfectly flat. it is windy. the world of the diableros and the world of living men.238. the crack is there.. whipping. It was very difficult to walk. they look and stand always to the warrior who journeys into them.182 It is hard to see the other side of the boundry. They seemed to be made of something that looked like pale yellow sandstone.there were low yellow clouds around us.152. which there becomes even more violent. EG. It is a plane above the ground. EG.238. The wind whirls around. There is a place where the two worlds overlap. THE PLACE OF THE YELLOW MOUNDS IS ALWAYS THE SAME IN PERCEPTION FOR ALL PEOPLE . and that that is the way. TDJ. it seemed that I was on a plateau filled with vapors of sulpher.. the sensation I had upon entering into that wall of fog was that my body was being twisted like the braids of a rope.130.238. TDJ. EG.163 . And what I saw was a cloudy.. roaring all around. it opens and closes like a door in the wind. the darker it got and the more difficult it was to move. The further we got away from the wall. They were all around us.153.. as far as we could see. (no-man's land) EG. TDJ.. there was the horrible desolate plain. I could see very well over the major part of a 180-degree range in front of my eyes.155.. banks of pale yellow vapor impaired visibility. and the other covered with small. in every direction. but no sky or horizon. A sort of lemon hue uniformly covered all I could see. EG. On top of that plateau is the entrance to that other world. pale-yellow horizon. I had seen at least two aspects of it.238. The sky was the same color and very low and oppressive. There were banks of yellowish fog or some sort of yellowish vapor that hung from certain spots in the sky. or rough granules of sulpher. she contended that those yellow mounds are present here and now.We were surrounded by small round mounds that looked exactly like sand dunes. EG.. it is possible to recognize it by the wind. like a sandstorm. it is possible to distinguish some of its features clearly.. DESCRIPTION OF GOING THROUGH THE CRACK BETWEEN THE WORLDS/FINDING A HELPER/DIABLERO the particular thing to learn is how to get to the crack between the worlds and how to enter the other world.182.

his seeing becomes what it should be. this renders us dependent and vulnerable.299..

It looked like a mushroom. I hadn't been aware of it earlier because of all the activity. just like it had in the darkness of my room the first night I had slept in the house. a soft voice.37. TSC. but when a sorcerer was directly facing the person he was seeing. beyond the trees and the hills into a blinding glare.. But now. I distinctly heard a mild humming sound.he had already pointed out that what I called coloration was not a hue but a glow of different intensities.. its mesmeric purr drew me inside.. the entire house seemed to be charged with a subtle electric current that filled my very being. AN UNEXPECTED SURGE OF VIGOR OR WELL-BEING. larger and contorted. I had noticed that the air in the hall behind that door was bubbling.

On the third shout.. TSC.. . the second one was whitish. Then I saw the minutest bubbles jumping all around the room at a tremendous speed..188. One of them burst open and revealed a scene to me.36. ... The mushroom like formation was the essential shape of human beings when a sorcerer was seeing them from far away. A SOFT VOICE.. Billions of tiny bubbles sparkled and glowed as if they had all lit up at the same instant.

TDJ. The thoughts were outside myself. intimately related to mankind. It wasn't my voice either. but the moment one tries to look at it. or the bloodvessels in the cornea of the eye.155. however. It flickered on and off like a beacon appearing and disappearing whenever I focused on it. because I could hold my own thoughts and the thoughts of the other at the same time. Its velvety walls enveloped me.. I knew that was so.VOICES THE VOICE THAT COMES WITH SEEING when seers see. It was perfectly clear. TDJ. . but a minature man's voice. Something was thinking for me. What I thought to be a voice was more like something whispering thoughts into my ear. what the seer is engaged in isn't seeing. but that seers had opted for using sound as a guage of a new alignment. doesn't have a voice. the new seers say it's the glow of awareness playing on the Eagle's emanations as a harpist plays on a harp.. I thought of a simile. It's a voice that tells them in their ear what's what. FFW. My breathing seemed to ... From then on I concentrated my attention on the voice alone. it was...it is equally fallacious to say that seeing was hearing. But that was not accurate. The new seers found out that that entity.97. The voice was like the image created by dust particles in the eyelashes. My attention was caught by a luminescent dot. it shifts out of sight with the movement of the eyeball. The world changed from bright to dark to bright again with every beat of my heart.72. not a child's voice or a falsetto voice. something explains everything as the new alignment takes place. a protector of man. TDJ.. it subsided altogether or became vague and the scene faded.155..154. CAVERN/SPONGE WORLD I felt as if I were in a gigantic cavern. I presumed it was English that I heard. the voice of seeing is a most mysterious inexplicable thing. although it was a small voice. TDJ. a wormlike shape that can be seen as long as one is not looking at it directly. Whenever I tried deliberately to trap the voice.. If that voice is not present. SEEING IN THE DARK I was concentrating on my new unique ablitity to see in the dark. and I realized that the voice was the alien thought in my head. The old seers believed it was the voice of an overpowering entity. it was dark. Then the area in front of me became illuminated by an intense light. Then gradually everything became dark again. It seemed to come from my shoulder. which they called the mold of man. because it was infinitely more than that. VOICES HEARD IN THE SECOND ATTENTION Then I heard a voice in my ear describing the scene. DJ personal conclusion is that the voice of seeing belongs only to man.

I lay perfectly still and tranquil until the dawn broke.

All my fears and concerns vanished so that nothing mattered anymore.190.214.. It constricted my larynx and subdued my screams.. that control comes with a lifetime of discipline and storing power.cease altogether and no thoughts or images disturbed the blackness. I continued to visualize it as a grease or an oil bubble which begin to draw me its center. I don't know why I thought it was soft.I was jolted by another blast of energy and I found myself drenched in perspiration.. just when I had given up all hope of pulling through. the whole tree house seemed to be coming apart..170. but it also opened my chest area so i could breath easier. It was almost as if the center would open up and swallow me.249.. above me was a white shiny. Suddenly an immense force sucked me in and I was no longer walking but gliding in space. the light was a heavy luminous fluid that fixed me to the platform by covering me like a shiny armor. I squeezed my eyes shut but it made no difference. i let out a scream as I felt the platform tilt even more.168.230 OTHER DESCRIPTIONS TAISHA ABELAR'S EXPERIENCE IN THE TREE HOUSE I began to feel the house tilting.

DOME Description of the dome. It soothed my nervous stomach and stopped the shakings of my legs... A light spilled out from within me... I no longer felt my body.

I simply felt that I knew it.. FFW. SENSATIONS FOLLOWING THE FOCUS OF THE SECOND ATTENTION CAN'T TALK I was experiencing the peculiar feeling that seems to follow the focusing of the second attention. it was rather as if the noise was creating the image of a boulder rolling on its monumental sides... It was not the view of a real boulder either.M..160.. Example of seeing EG. Everything you gaze at becomes nothing. Things don't disappear. they simply become nothing and yet they are still there. I heard a voice say. 213 DESCRIPTIONS OF OTHER WORLDS Description of another world and being eaten. I could not talk. She felt it inside her body as a consuming ticklishness.159.

Everything is new.96 .37.I realized I was seeing energy.All of me saw.they retained their candle like shape. . the entirety of what I in my normal consciousness call my body was capable of sensing as if it were an enormous eye that detected everything. The world is incredible.. FFW. i was actually seeing the noise. DESCRIPTION OF THE EXPERIENCE OF SEEING For an instant I actually saw a boulder the size of a mountain right behind the house. SRP. and then I knew what I've just told you. I had not had a vision of their house. I felt a strange fatigue. They don't vanish.they were thin.. I suddenly "knew" where they lived. TAOD.

Never in my life had I had such a divine euphoria. JTI. such an encompassing grasp. and yet I could not put the discovered secret into words. I knew I had discovered a secret. the glow would become agitated. change colour or even fade altogether. FORGETTING YOUR EXPERIENCE IN THE SECOND ATTENTION .192 DESCRIPTION OF THE FEELING IN THE SECOND ATTENTION FROM THE BODY I felt something warm and soothing oozing out of the world and out of my own body. or the assemblage point isn't fixed yet. I found it impossible to remember not only that I had entered into the second attention but that such a state existed at all. EARS BUZZING My ears were buzzing. In such instances the only thing one could do was to simply throw up. Felt a strong religious love.

.70 MAYBE WE ARE PERCEIVING IN BOTH ATTENTIONS BUT CHOOSE ONLY ONE ATTENTION AND THEN UNDER DURESS THOSE MEMORIES FROM THE OTHER COME BACK AND WE CAN HAVE TWO DISTINCT MEMORIES OF ONE EVENT Perhaps all of us are continually perceiving in both fashions (with the first and second attention) but choose to isolate one for recollection and discard the other. or what you've witnessed. Without that emphasis whatever they experience or witness vanishes.203. the memories are not trapped in the mind. FFW. or perhaps we file it away. the spot where it normally sets.. THEY ARE TRAPPED IN THE OTHER AREAS OF YOUR TOTAL BEING No. You've forgotten what you've done. FFW...131 WHERE ARE THE MEMORIES TRAPPED? THEY ARE NOT TRAPPED IN YOUR MIND. ITS DIFFICULT TO REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED IN THE SECOND ATTENTION BECAUSE OF THE INFINITUDE OF POSITIONS THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT CAN ADOPT the difficulty in remembering what takes place in HA is due to the infinitude of positions that the AP can adopt after being loosened from its normal setting.. HOW DO YOU ACT IN THE SECOND ATTENTION? . to be using those areas is to see. on the other hand. intensified.WE FORGET THE EXPERIENCE BECAUSE YOU STOP USING THE EMANATIONS YOU WERE EMPHASIZING IN THE SECOND ATTENTION AND WITHOUT THAT EMPHASIS WHATEVER YOU EXPERIENCED VANISHES One forgets experiences because the emanations that account for greater clarity cease to be empasized once warriors are out of HA. FFW. a condition that meant that other areas of my total being were used. has to do with the fixity of the AP on one spot..240. the censored memory surfaces and we can then have two distinct memories of one event. Facility in remembering everything that takes place in normal awareness. because when you were performing what you've forgotten you were seeing. whatever you've forgotten is trapped in those areas of your total being. The actions of seers are more complex than dividing a man into mind and body. SRP.. under certain conditions of stress or acquiescence.. Everything forgotten had taken place in states in which my everyday awareness had been enhanced.

). UNDERSTANDING AND LEARNING IS GREATER to be in left side awareness does not mean that one is immediately liberated from one's folly-it only means an extended capacity for perceiving. TOP.185 WHAT HAPPENS TO THE PHYSICAL BODY IN THE SECOND ATTENTION? OUR WHOLE BODY GOES INTO THE OTHER WORLD AND BECOMES SECOND ATTENTION The body is the first attention. or even as some strange light.he would witness nothing..244. . EG.285 The passage from one self to the other had no physicality. The man would be talking sense.187.

After all.. SRP. nothing which the eyes cannot apprehend and the tonal cannot explain. it simply goes into the other world. the attention of the tonal. I don't know how. and above all.. If a man who doesn't see is pressed.(CC asks if they are in danger of being seen by people). being the eyes of the tonal they would have to be limited to the tonals world and in that world there is nothing staggeringly new. EG. When it becomes the second attention.. DISAPPEARING IN THE NAGUAL/THE NAGUAL TAKES CARE OF IT (CC asks DJ if people can see me disappear into thin air. This is only natural. a greater ability to forget. IT IS OUR PERCEPTION THAT IS LED INTO THE NAGUAL (rather it is the perception that was led into the nagual).188.176. perhaps a lightening bug of unusual size.That is taken care of by the nagual.. TOP. SRP. TOP. TOP. he would say that he thought he saw something but could not remember what.284... WHAT WOULD SOMEONE SEE IF SOMEONE DISAPPEARED INTO THE NAGUAL?

this is the time to mention the source of everything that matters. they took me away from the taken-for-granted life that I had been born into and socialized for as a woman... The sorcerers' tonal says the opposite.11..128). They always manifested themselves as a jolt in my body followed by the sensation that I was suspended in something.85. At those moments the tonal becomes aware of the totality of oneself. he said reaching the second attention made the two attentions into a single unit..E-2.they seemed to be momentary lapses. OUTSIDE? NO ONE IS RIGHT IT DOESN'T MATTER the tonal and nagual are within ourselves.. everything is outside.. SRP. and that unit was the totality of oneself.133 (. but the triumph of a man of knowledge is that he has joined the two together.xii..

WE NEED ONLY A SMALL PORTION OF THE TOTALITY OF OURSELVES TO FULFILL THE MOST COMPLEX TASKS ON LIFE the totality of ourselves is a very tacky affair. THIS OCCURS AT DEATH It is always a jolt because that awareness disrupts the lull.. in our back and shoulders and neck. TOP. The idea is that at the moment of death the other member of the true pair.96.. or of one's willingness to learn.by turning off your internal dialogue and letting something in you flow out and expand. just let the whispering of the nagual guide you.133.247. DIAGRAM OF THE TOTALITY OF ONESELF The Eight Points +---Seeing----+ /\ Nagual Will-----Feeling-----Talking---Reason Tonal \/ +---Dreaming--+ EIGHT POINTS MAKE THE TOTALITY OF OUR BEING/BUBBLE OF PERCEPTION The eight points make the totality of oneself.202.

DREAMING AND WILL And finally. which he had drawn right above number one. ISOLATED FROM EACH OTHER AND WERE MORE DISTANT FROM REASON AND TALKING THAN SEEING. SR.96. TOP. You are here.SR.TOP.The other two were connected only to will and that they were removed from feeling. the result was a long trapezoid figure that had eight centers of uneven radiation. was directly connected to feeling. will. at the outer edge of that world one encounters the other two. reason was indirectly connected to three other points. REASON IS A SMALLER CENTER THAN WILL BECAUSE IT IS CONNECTED TO ONE POINT ONLY This is properly a centre that is smaller than will.. and we move from here to here.THROUGH TALKING. and seeing and much more distant from talking and reason.

F. EG.a somersault of thought into the inconceivable which is the act of breaking our perceptual barriers.179 A SOMERSAULT OF THOUGHT INTO THE INCONCEIVABLE WHICH IS THE ACT OF BREAKING OUR PERCEPTUAL BARRIERS.122 WHY CAN'T WE PERCEIVE IN THE THIRD ATTENTION? BECAUSE OUR ASSEMBLAGE POINT CANNOT CLUSTER ANYTHING The unknowable is an eternity where our AP has no way of clustering anything.) THE THIRD ATTENTION WHAT IS THE THIRD ATTENTION? THE THIRD ATTENTION IS AN IMMEASURABLE CONSCIOUSNESS STATE the third attention. .EG. THE UNKNOWABLE HAS NO ENERGIZING EFFECTS WHATSOEVER/IT IS COSTLY TO EXPERIENCE IT . (that's why its unknowable) FFW.....an immensurable consciousness which engages undefinable aspects of the awareness of the physical and luminous bodies. IT IS THE MOMENT IN WHICH MAN'S PERCEPTION REACHES ITS LIMITS.18 THE THIRD ATTENTION IS KEEPING THE AWARENESS WHICH IS USUALLY RELINQUISHED AT THE MOMENT OF DYING that to cross over to freedom did not mean eternal life as eternity is commonly understoodthat is as living forever.142.178. What the rule stated was that one could keep the awareness which is ordinarily relinquished at the moment of dying. It is the moment in which man's perception reaches its limits. POS.

131. That is the moment when the fire from within consumes them. and also aware of the totality of the body.85. one enters into the third attention.. And in full awareness they fuse themselves to the emanations at large. It is not within human reach.178. therefore it should not be intruded upon foolishly or even prudentlythe new seers realized that they had to be prepared to pay exorbitant prices for the faintest contact with it.179. but rather to conceive that there exists such an awareness at all. FFW. Therefore the crux of the warrior's struggle was not so much to realize that the crossing over stated in the rule meant crossing to the third attention... the job of realigning all those emanations paves the way for the peculiar maneuver of lighting up all the emanations inside the cocoon. and glide into eternity.132 EVERY CELL BECOMES AWARE OF ITSELF AND WE BECOME AWARE OF THE TOTALITY OF OUR BODY at the moment of crossing. Yet it is nothing (the glow from a state of heightened awareness) in comparison to the glow produced by a state of total awareness. which is seen as a burst of incandescence in the entire luminous egg. ... EG.179. and the body in its entirety is kindled with knowledge.the unknowable has no energizing effects whatsoever. FFW.. FFW.202. WHAT HAPPENS TO US WHEN WE GO INTO THE THIRD ATTENTION? THE GLOW OF AWARENESS KINDLES ALL OF THE EAGLE'S EMANATIONS INSIDE THE COCOON WHICH IS CALLED THE FIRE FROM WITHIN Third attention is attained when the glow of awareness turns into the fire from within. EG. THE THIRD AWARENESS IS MEANINGLESS TO OUR COMPARTMENTALIZED MINDS BUT THE FOCUS WAS TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT SUCH A STATE CAN EXIST this kind of awareness (of the third attention) is meaningless to our compartmentalized minds.fire from within.. a glow that kindles not one band at a time but all the Eagle's emanations inside the man's cocoon. Every cell at once becomes aware of itself.50.. FFW.

JTI. JTI.I turned and I thought I saw a flickering movement over the boulder. a spasm.JTI.) DEATH WHAT IS DEATH? DEATH CAN ONLY BE TALKED ABOUT IN PERSONAL TERMS death is nothing.. JTI. Death witnesses a warrior's last dance. it is the same for every warrior and yet it is not.(CC asks if your culture determines how you see your death. but the manner in which a warrior sees his death is a personal matter.33 DEATH'S PRESCENCE IS MARKED AS A CHILL and you felt its chill.a bird. Nothing! It is here yet it isn't here at all.. It has always been watching you. it could be anything. JTI. But one may also choose to say it is nothing and yet it is everything. a bush..35. a piece of fog.it always comes as a chill.. Death is whatever one wishes. made his life expand. POS. a light. or an unknown presence.... SR..) it doesn't matter how one was brought up. 157 .H. death whatever it is..195.157 WHERE DO WE FIND DEATH? DEATH IS ALWAYS TO ONE'S LEFT .156.. at an arm's length.death is the hunter and that it is always to one's left.I told you my son's life expanded at the time of his personal death. ..I cannot tell you what death is like. the muscles of my abdomen contracted involuntarily and I experienced a jolt. It is rather a presence.. JTI.. A chill ran through my body. DEATH IS WHATEVER ONE WISHES IT TO BE/DEPENDS ON PERSONAL POWER Death is not like a person. 34. DEATH IS A BLACK SPOT RIGHT BEHIND THE LEFT SHOULDER . One will be right on every count. Your death gave you a little warning. it always will until the day it taps you. I can't talk about death except in personal terms.33. a pebble.33 death is our eternal companion.. A man is only the sum of his personal power and that sum determines how he lives and how he dies.that our death was a black spot right behind the left shoulder. What determines the way one does anything is personal power. a person. But perhaps I could tell you about your own death..it is always to our left..

but as his old age makes him feeble his will wanes and a moment unavoidably comes when he is no longer capable of commanding his will. and his life becomes like the lives of all his fellow men.245.212.DYING HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN SOMEONE IS CLOSE TO DYING? WHEN A DARK SPOT BECAME A MOVING SHADOW THE EXACT SAME SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE PERSON IT BELONGED TO . an expanding fog moving beyond its limits. He then has nothing with which to oppose the silent force of his death.. in sickness. If you feel anything. The tumbler hits us in the gap in the cocoon ceaselessly and this is where the cocoon cracks.sorcerers knew when a person was close to dying because they could see the dark spot. IF THE SHIFT IS SMALL THEN THE COCOON REPAIRS ITSELF AND PEOPLE EXPERIENCE BLOTHCHES OF COLOR AND CONTORTED SHAPES . FFW.. POS. you feel no pain. SR. the RF cracks the cocoon. FFW.34 YOU DON'T FEEL PAIN IN A FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE death is only painful only when it happens in one's bed. POS. In a fight for your life. WHY DO WE DIE? WE DIE WHEN WE CANNOT COMMAND OUR WILL ANY LONGER It is his will which assembles a sorcerer. which became a moving shadow the exact size and shape of the person to whom it belonged. HOW DOES OUR COCOON BECOME WEAK? IF THERE IS AN INVOLUNTARY SHIFT OF THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT THE ROLLING FORCE CRACKS THE COCOON AND THE TUMBLER HITS THE CRACK CEASELESSLY When the AP shifts involuntarily.245.198. it's exultation.

the cocoon collapses and curls in on itself..When it finds weakness in the gap of a luminous being it automatically cracks it open and makes it collapse. the crack also is extensive and it takes time for the cocoon to repair itself. In these cases men feel numb and cold. The first is a blackout. FFW. IF THE SHIFT IS DRASTIC BECAUSE OF TRAUMA OR DISEASE.245.. it soon . they have difficulty talking or thinking. it is a meaningless stage.243. FFW. in which one experiences a lightness that makes one feel happy. THE SECOND STAGE IS WHEN DEATH DISSOLVES US INTO NOTHING Death has two stages. the cocoon quickly repairs itself and people experience. complete. it is as if they have been frozen from inside.. which remain even if the eyes are closed.245. the RF produces a crack the length of the cocoon. HOW DOES THE ROLLING FORCE KILL US? WHEN WE BECOME WEAK..the tumbler then tumbles the creature into the beak of the Eagle to be devoured. FFW. .. as in the case of warriors who purposely use power plants to elicit that shift or people who take drugs and unwittingly do the same.245 IF THE SHIFT IS BIG (WHEN USING POWER PLANTS OR DRUGS) THEN IT TAKES TIME FOR THE COCOON TO REPAIR ITSELF THESE PEOPLE EXPERIENCE NUMBNESS AND COLD AND HAVE DIFFICULTY TALKING OR THINKING If the shift is considerable. FFW.. As the tumbler hits us over and over. THE ROLLING FORCE PRODUCES A CRACK THE LENGTH OF THE COCOON AND THE COCOON COLLAPSES AND THE PERSON DIES In cases in which the AP shifts drastically because of the effects of trauma or of a mortal disease. until the day when the force proves to much for them and the creatures finally collapse.Luminous organic beings meet the rolling force head on. But that is only a shallow state. THE TUMBLER FORCE TUMBLES THE CREATURE INTO THE BEAK OF THE EAGLE TO BE DEVOURED . FFW. WHAT HAPPENS TO US WHEN WE DIE? DEATH HAS TWO STAGES: THE FIRST IS A MEANINGLESS BLACKOUT STAGE. the crack is very small..If it is a minor shift of the AP. and that everything in the world is at ease. blotches of color and contorted shapes.245.245. death comes to us through the gap. FFW. very similar to the first effect of mescalito. and the individual dies.

the jolt is so great that the layers get loose and can't get back together anymore.254 . SRP. So it's easy for death to come in between them and push them completely apart. though.vanishes and one enters a new realm. We can see the luminous strings losing their tautness and vanishing one by one. and then you would notice that it began moving toward you again.it is the real stage where one meets with death. Death was nothing all the time. And you would like a fog of tiny crystals moving.253 THE CENTER OF OUR LUMINOSITY (THE ATTENTION OF THE NAGUAL) IS ALWAYS PUSHING OUT AND THAT'S WHAT LOOSENS THE LAYERS Death pushes the layers aparts. or it was me talking.. SRP. You are strong.198 OUR LUMINOUS LAYERS BECOME SEPERATED PERMANENTLY BECAUSE OF JOLTS We die because our layers become seperated. it would resemble. and that's what loosens the layers. when we find that we are somehow ourselves again. As you watched it.. is always pushing out. like an onion.197 DEATH BEGINS TO ENTER US THROUGH OUR LUMINOUS GAP Death enters through the belly. Death is very much like this.254. Sorcerer have to do their best to keep their own layers closed. a face.right through the gap of the will. And yet it would enter inside you with uncontrollable force and would make you expand. but if they are injured they begin to peel. It is then that death smashes against us with quiet fury and power until it dissolves our lives into nothing. a realm of harshness and power. the center of our luminosity. moving away. you'd realize that it is a cloud that looks like a shiny whorl. jolts are always seperating them but they get together again. the face would enter inside you and then you'd know-it was the ally's face all the time. DESCRIPTION OF DEATH COMING AND SMASHING YOU TO EXPAND AND THE DISSOLVE YOU If you'd look closer. it is a brief moment. . Sometimes. after the first blackout. it was a little dot lost in the sheets of your notebook.. or you writing. it would pick up speed and in a blink of an eye it would smash against the windshield of your car. you would see it moving backward until it was only a brilliant point in the distance...253. That second stage is the real encounter with Mescalito. I'm sure it would take death a couple of whams to get to you...196.197. It is the area of the will and also the area through which all of us die. SR. SRP. right in the middle of the sky on front of you.113. setting its hooks deeper and deeper into his luminous fibers. it would make you flat and extend you over the sky and the earth and beyond.. We can see death whirling around the man. When human beings are healthy they are like luminous eggs. which is the attention of the nagual. SRP. SR.... SR. let's say. That area is the most important and sensitive part of man. Nothing.. Jolts of any kind seperate those layers and can even cause human beings to die. TOP.

It is not the rolling force that has cracked their gaps..43 THE DOUBLE IS FREE ONLY FOR AN INSTANT BECAUSE IT WAS NEVER PERFECTED/WE DIE AN ORDINARY DEATH But unfortunately. The idea is that at the moment of death the other member of the true pair. the nagual. living beings at that moment become flooded by the most inconceivable force. begin to expand and disintegrate. then.

This meant that the true leaders of mankind had always been the few human beings whose AP happened to be either on the exact point of reason or of silent knowledge.. And then something happened and pulled us away from the abstract..52 THE NORMAL POSITION OF MAN HAS CHANGED TO THE POSITION OF REASON FOR UNKNOWN REASONS but for reasons which would be impossible to determine.204. 244 THE ONE WAY BRIDGE FROM SILENT KNOWLEDGE TO REASON IS CALLED CONCERN .it was a general position on the AP that ages ago it had been man's normal position.. when silent knowledge was the first point POS.

FFW. you are too damn important in your own mind.(TAOD.. but your seriousness is attached to what you do.The problem is that all the energy available is consumed by the first attention. And that produces a terrible fatigue. I suppose you think that shows you have character. but the freedom to perceive not only the world taken for granted.though.all of us are aware of our doings..51. ).selfimportance is not simple and naive.. Yet you are a serious person...100 . That's nonsense. such as dreaming.. It's too little for such a big mould. Seek and see the marvels all around you. You will get tired of looking at yourself alone. You dwell upon yourself too much. it is the core of everything that is good in us and on the other hand it is the core of everything that is rotten..

Don't you dare give in to self-pity in this house..it's your old feeling of importance..POS... That's why men and women lose their minds so easily. There's no way to feel sorry for poor Manfred. However. this house will reject you. and because of that. but of very real cruelty and self-centeredness. For you the world is weird because if you're not bored with it you're at odds with it. man could not afford to be as self important as he is.. . mysterious..153. For me the world is weird because it is stupendous.Right now you're calling it "feeling sorry for Manfred" TSC. ..111... In other words.JTI. awesome. JTI. he's a warrior.65...80. POS. And it is this seemingly independent nature of self-importance which gives it its fake sense of worth...158 The position of self-reflection. once the force of self-importance is engaged..the mood of a warrior calls for control over himself and at the same time calls for abandoning himself.. it develops its own momentum. If you do.Without a degree of pity for himself... Self-pity. your life is as messy as it was before I met you. You have too much of it.forces the AP to assemble a world of sham compassion. JTI. as if you were the only man on earth who's wrong..81 SELF-PITY self-pity doesn't jibe with power.158 MESSY LIFE You always feel compelled to explain your acts. a being totally involved with his self image. it is a flimsy position at best. is inside you and expresses itself in different ways..position of the AP which made modern man a homicidal egotist. SELF-IMPORTANCE AND SELF-PITY ARE THE SAME THING . Self-pity is the real enemy and the source of man's misery. TSC. POS..you don't assume responsibility for your acts. No matter what form he's in. my interest has been to convince you that must assume responsibility for being here.. your not using death as an adviser..sorcerers had unmasked self-importance and found that it is self-pity masquerading as something else. In that world the only real feelings are those convienent for the one who feels them. you also have too much personal history. and above all. it'll spit you out.. you are too accessible.. unfathomable.158 THIS SELF-ABSORPTION IS REINFORCED BY THE INTERNAL DIALOGUE THE HABITUAL POSITION OF MAN'S ASSEMBLAGE POINT IS MAINTAINED BY THE INTERNAL DIALOGUE The position of the AP on man's cocoon is maintained by the internal dialogue.

Not only that. In fact we maintain our world with our internal talk. Everyone of us do that.23 HOW DOES OUR INTERNAL DIALOGUE AND SELF-ABSORPTION DEVELOP? AT BIRTH WE ARE ALL NAGUAL AND OUR ASSEMBLAGE POINT IS NOT FIXED BEFORE BIRTH THE DUALITY BETWEEN THE TONAL AND NAGUAL DOESN'T EXIST She said that before birth. TSC.especially those whose internal dialogue is repetitious. AS LONG AS YOU REMAIN SELF-IMPORTANT YOU CANNOT APPRECIATE THE WORLD AROUND YOU. man's imposed duality doesn't exist. two seperate entities. thus we repeat the same choices over and over until the day we die because we keep on repeating the same internal talk over and over until the day we die. we talk about our world. AT BIRTH THE TWO SIDES ARE SEPERATED BY THE PULL OF MANKIND'S INTENT: ONE PART TURNS OUTWARD AND BECOMES THE PHYSICAL BODY AND THE OTHER INWARD AND BECOMES THE DOUBLE . We renew it. two counterparts which became operative at the moment of birth. JTI. all you see is yourself apart from everything else. TOP. one was called the tonal and the other the nagual.43 BUT AT THE MOMENT OF BIRTH. and without any depth. but we also choose our paths as we talk to ourselves.119.173 WE MAINTAIN OUR WORLD WITH OUR INTERNAL TALK WE REPEAT THE SAME CHOICES OVER AND OVER UNTIL THE DAY WE DIE BECAUSE WE KEEP ON REPEATING THE SAME INTERNAL TALK OVER AND OVER UNTIL THE DAY WE DIE. FFW. You talk to yourself too much. we kindle it with life. You are like a horse with blinders.. SR. ALL YOU SEE IS YOURSELF APART FROM EVERYTHING ELSE As long as you feel that you are the most important thing in the world you cannot really appreciate the world around you.. you're not unique at that. we uphold it with our internal talk.218. Whenever we finish talking to ourselves the world is always as it should be. boring. We carry on an internal talk. THE TONAL AND NAGUAL BECOME OPERATIVE every human being had two sides.

43 AT BIRTH WE ARE ALL NAGUAL AND FOR A SHORT TIME AFTER At the time of birth.151 BUT AFTER A SHORT TIME AFTER BIRTH. So. FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. TSC. The moment we take the first gasp of air we also breathe in power for the tonal. THEN. The tonal is missing and that gives us. TOP. BUT FROM BIRTH THE TONAL BEGINS TO DEVELOP. inward and becomes the double. giving children a great capacity to focus on emanations that later will be throughly disregarded. IT BEGINS TO OUTSHINE THE NAGUAL Then the tonal starts to develop and it becomes utterly important to our functioning. From the moment we become all tonal we do nothing else but to increment that old feeling of incompleteness which accompanies us from the moment of our birth. THE TONAL IS MISSING AND THAT GIVES US.FFW. it is proper to say that the tonal of a human being is intimately tied to his birth. and for awhile after.126. THAT IN ORDER TO FUNCTION WE NEED A COUNTER PART TO WHAT WE HAVE. so important that it opaques the shine of the nagual. it overwhelms it. THE TONAL BEGINS TO DEVELOP AND BEGINS TO OVERTAKE THE NAGUAL WE SENSE.122 WHEN THE TONAL DOES DEVELOP. then. Our first ring of power is engaged very early in our lives and that we live under the impression that that is all there is to us. TOP. the two parts are seperated by the pull of mankind's intent.151 The fact of the matter is that many children can see.242 . and their AP shift everywhere in the band of man. that in order to function we need a counter part to what we have. FFW. TOP.. a feeling of incompleteness. TOP. the other.126.but that from birth on. and which tells us constantly that there is another part to give us completeness. AT FIRST INFANTS HAVE NO FIXED ASSEMBLAGE POINT AND IT MOVES THROUGHOUT MAN'S BAND The seers see that infants have no fixed AP at first. We begin to groom it at the moment of birth. One part turns outward and becomes the physical body.126. from the very beginning. A FEELING OF INCOMPLETENESS We sense. we are all nagual. SRP. Their encased emanations are in a state of great turmoil.

245 WE LEARN MOODS LIKE SOLACE. I've said that everything we are is on that island.53 THE ISLAND OF THE TONAL IS MADE BY OUR PERCEPTION WHICH HAS BEEN TRAINED TO FOCUS ON CERTAIN ELEMENTS I have called that view the island of the tonal.are taught by everyone around them to repeat an endless dialogue about themselves. fear. But what we perceive is not a fact of the same kind. FFW.. all of them are moods that you have learned without ever questioning their value. which has been trained to focus on certain elements and all of them together form our view of the world.. JTI. HAVEN AND FEAR Solace. The dialogue becomes internalized and that force alone keeps the AP fixed. The sorcerer's explanation says that the island of the tonal is made by our perception. because we learn what to perceive.ix. WE START TO DEVELOP AN INTERNALIZED DIALOGUE WITHIN OURSELVES WHICH BEGINS TO TAKE UP ALL OUR ENERGY AND FIXES THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT INTO PLACE AS INFANTS WE ARE TAUGHT TO REPEAT AN ENDLESS DIALOGUE ABOUT THEMSELVES AND THIS ENDLESS DIALOGUE BECOMES INTERNALIZED AND THAT FORCE ALONE KEEPS THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT FIXED Human beings when they are infants.. TOP.WHY DOES THE TONAL START TO DEVELOP? PEOPLE START TO TEACH US HOW AND WHAT TO PERCEIVE FROM OUR TEACHERS.26. EVERYONE A CHILD WHO COMES INTO CONTACT WITH IS A TEACHER He pointed out that everyone who comes into contact with a child is a teacher who incessantly describes the world to him.. TOP. WE LEARN WHAT TO PERCEIVE we perceive this is a hard fact.infants have hundreds of teachers who teach them exactly where to . haven.

but we use only one to create the world. Both have a description. however.TOP. because that position is an arbitrary one and needs steady reinforcement. Both descriptions have their rules . We make ourselves that way.. the child is a member.151 . that our reality is merely one of many descriptions.. reality. In fact.ix. We are all born that light and bouncy. the individuals who share a specific membership. but we become earth bound and fixed. the. which the reason learns to accept and defend. WE BEGIN TO THINK VERY QUICKLY THAT WHAT WAS TAUGHT TO US AND WHAT WE CAN SEE IS OUR ONE AND ONLY REALITY AND OUR PERCEPTION CLOSES. simply because none of us could possibly have had anything else. open to question. the reality of our day-to-day life consists of an endless flow of perceptual interpretations which we. which is hooked very soon after we are born.151 The internal dialogue is a process that constantly strengthens the position of the AP. it was created by a description that was told to us since the moment we were born.what I held in my mind was merely a description of the world. if ever. JTI. and his membership becomes full-fledged. I suppose. The trick of the sorcerer is the same trick of the average man. validate it. other upholds it with his will. That ring. the will. THE SELF-REFLECTED VIEW IS AT FIRST A DESCRIPTION BUT IT KEEPS BEING GIVEN TO US UNTIL ALL OF OUR ATTENTION IS CAUGHT BY IT AND IT BECOMES A VIEW That view is first a description. We are perceivers.168.. the average man upholds his with reason. FFW. So. FFW.The world we perceive though is an illusion. the reality of the world we know is so taken for granted that the basic premise of sorcery.ix. and its companion is talking.. when he is capable of making all the proper perceptual interpretations which.FFW. We the luminous beings are born with two rings of power. the world that your reason wants to sustain is the world created by a description and its dogmatic and inviolable rules. The idea that the perceptual interpretations that make up the world have a flow is congruous with the fact that they run uninterruptedly and are rarely. TOP.74. From that moment on. JTI.39. in essence. have learned to make in common. or the world we all know. a description that had been pounded into me from the moment I was born. which is given to us from the moment of our birth until all of our attention is caught by it and the description becomes a view.. could hardly be taken as a serious proposition. we were taught the means to dull ourselves in order to keep the AP fixed on one spot. He knows the description of the world. The secret of the luminous beings is that they have another ring of power which is never used. is only a description .the new seers say that when we were taught to talk to ourselves. by confirming to that description.we have no memory of that portentous moment. is reason. between the two they concoct and maintain the world.. For a sorcerer..place their AP...244.. FFW. THERE COMES A MOMENT WHEN THE CHILD PERCEIVES THE WORLD AS DESCRIBED AND BEGINS AN ENDLESS FLOW OF PERCEPTUAL INTERPRETATIONS (CALLED THE INTERNAL DIALOGUE) WHICH IS RARELY OPEN TO QUESTION until the moment when the child is capable of perceiving the world as it is described.

. FFW..and the rules are perceivable. or out there.. .. forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in our lifetime.52. JTI.246 the conviction that there is a real you is a result of the fact that you have rallied everything you've got around your reason. TOP. JTI. But what man senses is such a small portion of the Eagle's emanations that its ridiculous to put much stock in our perceptions and yet it isn't possible for us to disregard our perceptions.122.. WE LIVE IN A BUBBLE OF PERCEPTION WHICH CLOSES SOMETIME AFTER BIRTH AND WE WITNESS OUR OWN SELF-REFLECTION ON ITS WALLS Sorcerers say that we are inside a bubble.74.. Sorcerers believe that reason is only one center and it shouldn't take so much for granted. as we believe it is...The thing reflected is our view of the world. it is a bubble into which we are placed at the moment of our birth. . but in this case it is an accurate way.. .244. but it isn't a mirage either.. We live in that bubble all our lives.. Our mistake is to believe that the only perception worthy of acknowledgement is what goes through our reason. At first the bubble is open. or rather our reason.267 WE REGARD THE VISUAL AS THE ONLY REALITY BECAUSE WE RELY ON LANGUAGE AND REASON . the basic premise of sorcery.97. That bubble is perception.Naturally. the world of everyday life is not real.. FFW.

And what we witness on its round walls is our own reflection.The bubble is opened in order to allow the luminous being a view of his totality.we think it is a world of objects and its not.245 WE THINK THAT THE WORLD IS SOLID AND FILLED WITH OBJECTS AND FORGET IT IS JUST A DESCRIPTION POUNDED INTO US EVERYDAY SINCE BIRTH WE BEGIN TO THINK OF THE WORLD AS A PLACE OF OBJECTS AND SOLIDITY The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient.that for a sorcerer.244. but then it begins to close until it has sealed us in. there was no world at large but only a description of the world which we had learned to visualize and take for granted.Sorcerers call it the secret of the luminous beings and it is the fact that we are perceivers..To believe that the world is only as you think it is. FFW.. It is only a description that was created for us.. but the advantage of the sorcerer is that will is more engulfing than reason. is stupid.

That little ring is almost immediately put to use. JTI. we have spent much of our lives in rooms. That has to be learned.. We forget they are real to us only because it is our command to perceive them as real.212.FOR THINGS TO BE REAL IN OUR WORLD WE HAVE TO AGREE UPON THEM Things are real only after one has learned to agree on their realness. let's say that when every one of us is born we bring with us a little ring of power.

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO US IF OUR TONAL DID NOT PROTECT US? THE NAGUAL COULD DESTROY THE TONAL WHEN IT COMES OUT The nagual once it learns to surface. so don juan's references to the guardian was not the guardian itself but to the tonal in which it must be overcome before we can enter into the other side 10/23/94 SHIELDS ARE A GREAT HELP AND A HINDERANCE.

And if the tonal dies. Therefore. I say.121. The crown has to be taken away from it. Any threat to the tonal always results in its death. (SEE HUMAN SHIELDS) WHAT ARE THE DRAWBACKS TO BEING PROTECTED BY THE TONAL? THE TONAL'S ORIGINAL FUNCTION IS TO PROTECT OUR BEING (MAKING SENSE OUT OF THINNGS) BUT IT EVENTUALLY BECOMES A GUARD BECAUSE IT LIMITS OUR PERCEPTION I would say then that the tonal is a guardian that protects something priceless.157.241 . so it is of no real consequence how the tonal reacts in order to accomplish its defence.

Again you're not unique at that.. what people do is greater and more important than the world itself.. it took enormity of strength to let go of the intent of everyday life. something in the tonal itself becomes aware that there is more to us.. DOES THE TONAL EVER NOTICE THE NAGUAL? SOMETIMES THE TONAL NOTICES THE NAGUAL AND THE TOTALITY OF OURSELVES ARISES . WHAT WE DO AS PEOPLE GIVES US COMFORT AND MAKES US FEEL SAFE Your problem is that you confuse the world with what people do..219..

To say that we had a conversation is only a way of arranging it so I can talk about it... Everything one sees is so unique that there is no way to talk about it except by comparing it to something known to us.the crux of our difficulty to going back to the abstract was our refusal to accept that we could know without words or even without thoughts.7 .

Before that the experience is only thought of as a hallucination or a something that doesn't fit in with your rationality so it can't be thought of as something that makes sense. This occurs only when the person has enough energy to move the AP to that position at will. TSC.138.... the way to overcome them is to persist in acting like a warrior.was that we had learned to relate our selfs to our description of the world in terms of what he called habits. pragmatic way of sorcerers. WHICH PEOPLE ARE THE CLOSEST PEOPLE FOR EXPLAINING THE NAGUAL? POETS AND POEMS ARE THE CLOSEST PEOPLE WHO CAN EXPLAIN THE NAGUAL Don Juan said that poets were keenly aware of our connecting link with the spirit. not in the deliberate.121 2. especially if a sorcerer spoke to it directly.to its description. I would need to have energy to fluctuate from the place of reason to the place of silent knowledge. Paradoxically. only when the position of the AP has become part of your new continuity..28. 63..though. the rest comes of itself and by itself.. .

. the spirit resolves it.. The sorcerers don't resolve this problem with continuity.Disregard our interpretation system.. a sense of an infinite realness that is unreal or an infinite unrealness that could very well be real but is not. THE PERSON MIND COLLAPSES (STOPPING THE WORLD) The average person is willing to incorporate new items into his inventory if they don't contradict the inventory's underlying order.. POS. TAOD.97 IF THE NEW ITEMS OF THE INVENTORY CONTRADICT THE INVENTORY'S UNDERLINING ORDER... POS.173..that is why impeccability is all that counts.POS... and that seems to beckon a solution.173... the expansion of our perception is so gigantic that we are left with very few tools for sensory interpretation and thus..231. the person's mind collapses.it is impossible to restore a shattered continuity...the new continuity does not offer the assuredness they need to function as if they were in the world of everyday life. .. But if the items contradict that order.the scope of what can be perceived without interpretation grows inordinately. IT IMPOSSIBLE TO RESTORE A SHATTERED CONTINUITY . Sorcerers count on this when they attempt to break the mirror of self-reflection. it is impossible of using the continuity dictated by the new position of their AP.

I should say that sorcery hinders him. it is evident to the seer who sees the opening and to the creatures who go through it. A sorcerer is only slightly better off than the average man. BY OPENING HIMSELF TO KNOWLEDGE A SORCERER BECOMES MORE VULNERABLE THAN THE AVERAGE MAN By opening himself to knowledge a sorcerer becomes more vulnerable than the average man. it makes his life cumbersome. On the one hand his fellow men hate him and fear him and will strive to end his life. to seek an opening to freedom and go through it. SR. the power to disobey the summons to die and be consumed. the Eagle created the Naugal. 3.

WHAT IS A TOLTEC?

ANTHROPOLOGICAL IT WAS A CULTURE OF NAHUATL-SPEAKING PEOPLE IN CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN MEXICO WHICH WAS ALREADY EXTINCT BY THE TIME OF THE SPANISH CONQUEST The anthropological meaning was... a culture of Nahuatl-speaking people in central and soutern Mexico which was already extinct at the time of the Spanish conquest. SRP,163.

A TOLTEC IS ONE WHO KNOWS BOTH THE MYSTERIES OF STALKING AND DREAMING A Toltec is the receiver and holder of mysteries. SRP,163. A sorcerer is a Toltec when that sorcerer has received the mysteries of stalking and dreaming. SRP,215.

WHAT DOES THE WORD "TOLTEC" MEAN?

TOLTEC MEANS "MAN OF KNOWLEDGE" AND DOES NOT REFER TO THE TOLTEC EMPIRE. Toltec means "man of knowledge" and does not refer to the Toltec Empire. FFW,18.

WHEN DID THE TOLTECS EXIST?

PROBABLY THE LAST LINK IN A CHAIN PERHAPS THOUSANDS OF YEARS BEFORE THE SPANISH CONQUEST Toltecs existed ages (centuries or perhaps even millennia FFW,18) before the Spaniards came to Mexico...last link in a chain of knowledge that extended over thousands of years FFW,16 Sorcerers of antiquity.. men who existed in Mexico perhaps thousands of years before the Spanish Conquest, ( perhaps as far back as ten thousand years ago..ruled from seven thousand to three thousand years ago..from then on, sorcerers have been regrouping, restructuring what was left of the old ones. TAOD,59)

WHERE DID THEY LIVE?

ALL SUCH MEN OF KNOWLEDGE LIVED WITHIN A VAST GEOGRAPHICAL AREA, NORTH AND SOUTH OF THE VALLEY OF MEXICO ..all such men of knowledge lived within a vast geographical area, north and south of the valley of Mexico..FFW,18

WHAT KIND OF JOBS DID THEY DO?

CURING, BEWITCHING, STORYTELLING, DANCING, BEING AN ORACLE, PREPARING FOOD AND DRINK. THOSE LINES OF WORK FOSTERED SPECIFIC WISDOM, WISDOM THAT DISTINGUISHED THEM FROM AVERAGE MEN and were employed in specific lines of work: curing, bewitching, storytelling, dancing, being an oracle, preparing food and drink. Those lines of work fostered specific wisdom, wisdom that distinguished them from average men...they were also people who fitted into the structure of everyday life, very much as doctors, artists, teachers, priests and merchants in our time do. They practiced their professions under the strict control of organized brotherhoods and became proficient and influential... FFW,18

WHAT SORCERY DID THEY DEVELOP?

THEY KNEW THE ART OF HANDLING AWARENESS/THEY KNEW THOUSANDS OF POSITIONS OF THE SECOND ATTENTION they knew the art of handling awareness. FFW,16 men whose greatest accomplishment had been to build the structures of sorcery, emphasizing practicality and concreteness. He rendered them as men who were brilliant but lacking in wisdom. TAOD, pg The Toltecs had divided their secret knowledge into two sets of five categories each: the earth and the dark regions, fire and water, the above and below, the loud and the silent, the moving and the stationary. ... the old seers secret knowledge of the earth was employed either to groom or to destroy anything that stands on the ground. FFW,98,99 Toltec power stand (description of and turning to the north) SRP,273,274. Holding the images of dreams was a Toltec art. SRP,242. They put all their eggs in one basket: the fixation of the assemblage point on the thousands of positions it can adopt...out of all the marvelous things the old sorcerers learned exploring those thousands of positions, only the art of dreaming and the art of stalking remain. TAOD,69... the old seers aimed at lighting up all the emanations inside their cocoons, one band at a time, They succeeded, but oddly enough the accomplishment of lighting up one

band at a time was instrumental in their becoming imprisoned in the quagmire of the second attention. FFW,85 ...(they were the only ones able to change their energetic shape into a straight line.)..they were trying to bend themselves into circles, which they couldn't quite make..they had also succeeded in stretching the duration of their consciousness. So they are alive and conscious to this day. TAOD, 12,13...they exist today in one of the layers of the universe. TAOD, 171. ..they coined the name allies (inorganic beings) and the allies taught them to move the assemblage point out of the egg's boundaries into the nonhuman universe...into worlds beyond the human domain. TAOD,49. The old sorcerers used to love their allies...more than they loved their own kind. TAOD,52,58 The dreaming emissary became the most vital entity for the (old Sorcerers) TAOD,67 (they could transform themselves into whatever by keeping the uniformity and cohesion of their assemblage point..their AP was very fluid ..they would shift their AP, stalk their perception, rearrange their cohesiveness to fit their new state of awareness..) TAOD,78 They preferred shifts of the AP...and were after the human unknown. TAOD,79

WHAT WERE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TOLTECS?

POWERFUL SORCERERS, SOMBER THEY LEANED TOWARD ACTION. THEIR BID IS TO DOMINATE, TO MASTER EVERYBODY AND EVERYTHING. ....powerful sorcerers, somber...they would influence and victimize people by fixating the awareness of their victims whatever they chose. FFW,16. Everything the Toltecs do is very simple. SRP,258. The ancient sorcerers were not given to thought. They leaned toward action. POS,42. Their bid is to dominate, to master everybody and everything. FFW,122 they did not seek order which was a great mistake..and a deadly consequence was their assumption that the unknown and the unknowable are the same thing. FFW,49. they were all action and no real knowledge... when it came time for them to understand what they had seen, they couldn't do it. FFW,70,71

THEY WERE SIMILAR TO THE ANCIENT CHINESE.. THEY WANTED TO UNDERSTAND THE UNIVERSE ETC.. the people of pre-Hispanic Mexico were very similar in many respects to the ancient Chinese. Perhaps because they both may have had the same origins, they shared a similar world view. The ancient Indians of Mexico.. had a slight advantage.. because the world in which they lived was in transition. This made them extremely eclectic and curious about every facet of existence. They wanted to understand the universe, life, death and the range of human possibilities in terms of awareness and perception. Their great drive to know led them to develop practices that enabled them to arrive at unimaginable levels of awareness. They made detailed descriptions of their practices and mapped the realms that those

practices unveiled. This tradition they handed down from generation to generation, always shrouding it in secrecy. TSC,122.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TOLTECS?

THEY BECAME BOGGED DOWN IN THE SECOND ATTENTION/THE SPANISH CAME AND CONQUERED THEM AND ONLY A FEW SURVIVED The cultural context of DJ's knowledge. He did not know that himself. He viewed it as the product of a sort of Pan-Indianism. His conjecture about its origin was that at one time, in the Indian world prior to the Conquest, the handling of the second attention became vitiated. It was developed without any hinderance over perhaps thousands of years, to the point that it lost its strength. The practioners of that time may have had no need for controls, and thus without restraint, the second attention, instead of becoming stronger, became weaker by virtue of its increased intricacy. Then the Spanish invaders came and destroyed the Indian world.. Only a handful of warriors survived... whatever DJ knew about the second attention was the restructured version, a new version which had built in restraints because it had been forged under the harshest conditions of suppresion..EG,187. ..demise of the Toltecs FFW,19 Just as in China, where there were ancient beliefs so farfetched that they have turned into legends, here in Mexico we also have our share of beliefs and legends...here in Mexico, there were two cultures that collided head on: the Spaniards and the Indians... We know everything about ancient Spain but not ancient Mexico simply because the Spaniards were the victors and tried to obliterate Indian traditions. But in spite of their systematic and relentless efforts, they didn't succeed completely. TSC,101. SORCERERS OF TODAY/NEW SEERS

HOW THE NEW SEERS DEVELOPED (how the new seers developed. FFW,20, 21)

HOW THE NEW SEERS TAUGHT THEIR IDEAS (new seers of how they teach their ideas.. FFW,187)

WHAT IS THE PHILOSOPHY AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE NEW SEERS?

THEY CHANGED THE OLD SORCERY TO FIT THEIR NEEDS

Sorcerers of today.... ..men renowned for their sound minds and their capacity to rectify the course for sorcery if they deemed it necessary.... they were through with description, comparison, and conjecture of any sort. FFW, 61.

THE HARSH CONDITIONS FOR THE OLD SEERS HELPED DEVELOP THE NEW SORCERERS (after the Spanish conquest..the tonal of the Indians were obliterated..except for the sorcerers whose tonal)..took refuge in their nagual....The men of knowledge of today are the product of those conditions and are the ultimate connoisseurs of the nagual since they were left there thoroughly alone. There, the white man has never ventured. In fact, he doesn't even have the idea it exists. TOP,138.

THEY DIDN'T WANT CONCRETE THINGS ...they have no interest in concrete gains. There are no social functions for them, as there were for the sorcerers of the past. So you'll never catch them being the official seers or the sorcerers in residence. TAOD, 2

THEY DIDN'T WANT RITUALS OR THE UNKNOWN Because we are interested in something beyond the aberrant esoteric rituals and incanations of those sorcerers of ancient times. You see, we believe that their bizarre practices and obsessive search for power resulted only in a greater enhancement of the self. TSC,123..This is a dead-end road, for it never leads to total freedom. Which is what we ourselves are after. The danger is that one can easily become swayed by the mood of those sorcerers. TSC,123. We are sorcerers from the same tradition as those of ancient times. We have inherited all their esoteric rituals and incantations, but although we know how to use them we aren't interested in making them work. TSC,154.

THEY ONLY WENT INTO THE INORGANIC WORLDS AS ONLY A TRAINING EXERCISE They (would go into other worlds (inorganic) only as an exercise)..they prefer movements of the AP...they were after the nonhuman unknown. TAOD, 79.

THE WORLD'S PRODUCED ARE OF NO VALUE FOR A WARRIOR ...most of the time the worlds the AP had assembled had been so close to the world of everyday life as to be virtually phantom worlds. Those visions are the product of man's inventory..they are no value for warrior's..because they are produced by a lateral shift of the AP.

THEY MAPPED THE UNKNOWN TO MAKE IT SEPERATE FROM THE UNKNOWABLE through the use of controlled seeing, the new seers began to map the unknown (making it available to our perception) in order to seperate it from the unknowable.FFW,51

THEY DIDN'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT RANDOM CASES OF PEOPLE WHO ENTER THE UNKNOWN the new seers did not consider it worthwhile to discuss the random cases of men and other sentient beings who enter the unknown and the unknowable without being aware of it; he referred to this as the Eagle's gift. FFW,85

THE NEW SEERS WERE PROFOUNDLY DISTURBED BY THE FACT THAT AWARENESS FORESTALLS DEATH AND AT THE SAME TIME INDUCES IT BY BEING FOOD FOR THE EAGLE. SINCE THEY COULD NOT EXPLAIN IT, FOR THERE IS NO RATIONAL WAY TO UNDERSTAND EXISTENCE, SEERS REALIZED THAT THEIR KNOWLEDGE IS COMPOSED OF CONTRADICTORY PROPOSITIONS The new seers were profoundly disturbed by the fact that awareness forestalls death and at the same time induces it by being food for the Eagle. Since they could not explain it, for there is no rational way to understand existence, seers realized that their knowledge is composed of contradictory propositions.... the new seers found unquestionable truths by means of seeing. Those truths are arranged in terms of supossedly blatent contradictions. FFW,91 HOW DO THE NEW SORCERERS ORGANIZE THEIR LINEAGE?

THERE ARE TWO BRANCHES OF THAT LINEAGE, EACH HAS EIGHT MEMBERS. THE MEMBERS OF CLARA'S BRANCH ARE THE GRAUS AND THE MEMBERS OF MY BRANCH ARE THE ABELARS. We are a lineage, but not a family lineage. In this house there are two branches of that lineage, each has eight members. The members of Clara's branch are the Graus and the members of my branch are the Abelars. Our origin is lost in time. We count ourselves by generations. I can teach what my group knows to someone who is like me. In this case, you are an Abelar (Nelida talking to Taisha.) TSC,189.

Your reason is willing to admit that the world is not as the description portrays it.. everything is just perception.225 You now know about the tonal and the nagual which are the core of the sorcerer's explanation. but what they perceive is neither good nor evil.178.215.. The rule was endless and covered every facet of a warrior's behavior. explanations of and examples. EG. TAOD.. 3 AND THAT EVERYTHING AROUND US IS ONLY A PERCEPTION PERCEPTION IS THE UNLTIMATE MYSTERY BECAUSE IT'S TOTALLY UNEXPLAINABLE/ EVERYTHING IS PERCEPTION/EVERYTHING IS AN UNFATHOMABLE MYSTERY Perception is the ultimate mystery because it's totally unexplainable. The social base of our perception should be the physical certainty that energy is all there is. EG. can perceive more than is normally permitted.If we don't start out with the premise that it is a world of energy. TOP.225.. If human beings.178. WHAT IS THE SORCERY'S EXPLANATION?

. to reason out the double. We won't ever understand it. Well. EG.The mystery is outside us. THE WORLD IS A MYSTERY THE WORLD IS INCOMPREHENSIBLE...and it is not at all as you picture it.143 THE WORLD IS WHATEVER WE PERCEIVE IN ANY MANNER WE CHOOSE TO PERCEIVE He was very careful to establish that the world was whatever we perceive. SR. one way or the other. The world is incomprehensible. FFW. Thus we must treat it as it is. It is impossible. the things that people do cannot under any conditions be more important than the world. Not so much what we perceive.220.279 I've told you time and time again that the world is unfathomable..it doesn't yield its secrets easily.147. The world is a mystery.49.22. AND THIS PERCEPTION CAN BE MANIPULATED . but that's not all there is to world..death. they get to realize that the mystery is perceiving. we won't ever unravel its secrets.. And thus a warrior treats the world as an endless mystery and what people do as an endless folly.. JTI. and so is every being that exists in this world. WE WON'T EVER UNRAVEL ITS SECRETS. there is much more to it. in any manner we may choose to perceive. A SHEER MYSTERY. THUS WE MUST TREAT IT AS IT IS. WE WON'T EVER UNDERSTAND IT. and everything else that surrounds us. but what makes us perceive. JTI. though.The world around us is very mysterious.. THE MYSTERY OF US IS OUTSIDE US/WHAT MAKES US PERCEIVE .unfathomable mystery. whether we are average men or warriors.219. and that should be more than enough. Only the new seers get around this. And by means of the shifts of their AP. inside us we only have emanations trying to break the cocoon. You've been allowed to witness it. They struggle to see. And this fact aberrates us.. SR... a sheer mystery. A WARRIOR TREATS THE WORLD AS A MYSTERY/PEOPLE AS THE FOLLY A warrior is aware of this confusion and learns to treat things properly...

You'd be surprised what men are capable of especially if they control awareness.214.. FFW. the use of awareness as an energetic element of our environment is the essence of sorcery.xi. he learns to use such forces by redirecting himself and adapting to their direction. via awareness. and vice versa.73.. the position of the AP is everything and that the world it makes us perceive is so real that it does not leave any room for anything except its realness. in the old seers excursion to the depths they found marvels. It was routine for them to encounter allies.16.. on the other hand.awareness can also be used for entering into the energy fields of inanimate matter or of living beings.or rather.121 A SORCERER DOES NOT TRY TO EXPLAIN THESE FORCES BUT USES THESE FORCES BY REDIRECTING HIMSELF AND ADAPTING TO THEIR DIRECTION The sorcerer. PERCEPTION IS CONTROLLED BY WHERE THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT IS FIXED SO MANIPULATING THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT BECOMES THE MOST IMPORTANT GOAL OF A SORCERER THE MANIPULATION OF THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT TOPIC OF THE SORCERER'S WORLD .

TSC..The sorcerers can hitch their energy body to the (glow of awareness) and go with it. does not think of explaining or changing them. sorcerers go to the ends of the universe. FFW. FFW. everything in sorcery rests on the manipulation of the assemblage point. TAOD. scouts from all over the universe come to us.. That's his trick. 198.. the same goal: breaking the perceptual dispositions and biases that imprison us within the boundaries of the normal everyday world and prevent us from entering other perceivable worlds. There are no depths there is only handling of awareness... To say the depths is a figure of speech. All of them (sorcerers) pursued.the mystery of the AP is everything in sorcery.235.185..the most important topic of the sorcerers' world. THE MASTERY OF AWARENESS IS WHAT GIVES THE AP ITS INITIAL BOOST TO DISLODGE IT FROM ITS ORIGINAL POSITION .

FFW.. thus new perceptions.the mastery of awareness is what gives the AP its initial boost to dislodge it from its original position. POS. it forces new alignments of emanations. WHY DO SORCERER GO TO OTHER WORLDS? SORCERERS GO INTO OTHER WORLDS TO GET ENERGY.. make your inventory and then throw it away.. IT CAN MOVE WITH A RELATIVELY SMALL EFFORT. POWER. our inventory. SOLUTIONS TO GENERAL AND PARTICULAR PROBLEMS. THE NEW SEERS SAY THAT SINCE THE EXACT POSITION OF THE AP IS AN ARBITRARY POSITION CHOSEN FOR US BY OUR ANCESTORS. IT FORCES NEW ALIGNMENTS OF EMANATIONS. ONCE IT MOVES. or to face the unimaginable.our enemy and at the same time our friend is our internal dialogue. it required that the internal dialogue be stopped. the new seers say that since the exact position of the AP is an arbitrary position chosen for us by our ancestors. The explanation behind all these complex procedures was very simple. solutions to general and particular problems.13 WHERE DOES THE ENERGY COME FROM TO MOVE THE AP? THE ENERGY NECESSARY TO MOVE THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT COMES FROM THE REALM OF THE INORGANIC BEINGS . THUS NEW PERCEPTIONS.. moving the AP is complex because it required a tremendous discipline on everybody's part.. it can move with a relatively small effort. shut off your internal dialogue. once it moves. The new seers make accurate inventories and then laugh at them. Be a warrior. which was something like a training ground for reaching the third attention. EG.18.. without the inventory the AP becomes free..277... power. that a state of HA be reached and that someone walk away with one's AP. FFW. .152 WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE SECOND ATTENTION FOR NEW SORCERERS? THE SECOND ATTENTION IS THE TRAINING GROUND FOR WARRIORS WANTING TO REACH THE THIRD ATTENTION the battlefield of warriors was the second attention..Sorcerers go into other worlds to get energy. OR TO FACE THE UNIMAGINABLE.

... he said. not only do we have to covet them but we need to have sufficient energy to sieze them.139. seeing happens to us itself. Thus the problem of making internal energy available to fulfill such a task becomes the key issue for students of sorcery. .. 181.18 YOU MUST EXERCISE YOUR SECOND ATENTION TO GET YOUR DESIRED RESULTS The second attention served the function of a beckoner.viii. The more it is exercised. POS. EG.. but their inaccessibility is entirely a consequence of our energetic conditioning.214. we need internal energy. The trick is in abandoning our fort of self-complacency and false security.depends on increased energy and not instruction. JTI. simply and solely because of that conditioning. Their existence is constant and independent of our awareness. FFW.Sorcerers say that in order to command the spirit..152. 9. It's an effect that happens all by itself. Once one knows that world all one needs to bring it about is to use that extra ring of power. a caller of chances..166.. TSC. and by that they mean to command the movement of the AP. TAOD. one needs energy POS.227. POS..no procedure can cause that.. TAOD.. the greater the possibility of getting the desired result. ii. That movement is the completion of the warrior's quest.Sorcerers maintain that moving the AP is all that matters and that movement. BUT TO MANIPULATE THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT MEANS TO HAVE FREED INTERNAL ENERGY IN ORDER TO PERCEIVE THE SECOND ATTENTION WE NEED INTERNAL ENERGY TO MOVE THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT He had maintained that in order to perceive energy in such a fashion. POS.255.. we are compelled to assume that the world of daily life is the one and only possible world. Don Juan explained to me that..232 .. . TSC. the only value of experiences (in the warrior's path) was the movement of the AP and not the content of the vision.the most difficult thing in the warrior's path is to make the AP move.the energy necessary to move the assemblage points of sorcerers comes from the realm of the inorganic beings.. EG. In order to accomplish the feat of heightening our perception. for us to perceive those other realms. the shift of the AP is everything.... we need freedom from our normal capacity to perceive. Once we have energy. In other words..169 and such AP movements were ruled by the amount of energy sorcerers had at their command. . in the warrior's way.. FFW. TAOD.viii The difficulty is in breaking the retaining wall we all have in our mind that holds us in place...the only thing that matters is the movement of the AP.. THE SECOND ATTENTION IS NECESSARY TO PERCEIVE OURSELVES AS LUMINOUS BODIES the SA is the awareness we need in order to perceive our luminous cocoon and to act like luminous beings. To break it all we need is energy.

...42. If one doesn't have it.the sorcerers' way is the best means of energy redeployment . Of course you need to gather energy. only a special manipulation of awareness.. TDJ.sorcerers get extra energy from eradicating unnecessary habits.193. the energy they have and use for perceiving the daily world. the naugal's blow is not the blow of freedom. THE SORCERER'S NEEDED A CODE OR A WAY OF LIFE THAT FREES UP ENERGY AND CAN HANDLE THE DANGERS OF THE SECOND ATTENTION ONLY THE SORCERER'S WAY CAN RESTORE THE ENERGY NEEDED TO REGAIN THE TOTALITY OF OURSELVES She reached inside the cave and touched the left and right sides of my forehead..173. The sorcerers redeployed their energy by cutting down anything they consider superfluous in their lives. right living and celibacy can restore the energy that has drained out. This is what all the great mystics have done and done completely. Without enough energy. in a more intelligent manner. M. Awareness must shift from here to here.. the new seers fortified themselves and aquired the internal strength (sobriety) they needed to guide the shift of the AP in dreams..32. but the blow of death.TAOD. energy needed to make the shift.. FFW.. FFW.Sorcerers get that energy by redeploying.164 SINCE ALL OF OUR ENERGY IS WRAPPED UP IN DEALING WITH OURSELVES.. FFW. TAOD.but right now you must do it by demolishing your indulgence in ... one needs energy.?.195.. as children..138 .97 Eradicating self-will is the means by which we realize the supreme goal of the spiritual life.. through years of strenuous effort.164 You have to have energy to sustain the pressure of alignments which never take place under ordinary circumstances..It was implicit that one could have been capable of such an extraordinary effort only by being frugal with any other activity that did not deal directly with such predetermined actions. TSC. TAOD. FFW.. we can easily do this . THE WARRIOR'S WAY AQUIRED THE INTERNAL STRENGTH THEY NEEDED TO SHIFT THEIR ASSEMBLAGE POINT IN THEIR DREAMS With the warrior's path. the force of alignment is crushing..YOU MUST HAVE ENERGY TO MAKE THE AP MOVE OR THE FORCE OF ALIGNMENT WILL CRUSH YOU For the AP to shift. HOW DOES THE SORCERER'S WAY/IMPECCABILITY FREE OUR EXISTING ENERGY? THE SORCERERS CUT DOWN ANYTHING THEY THINK IS SUPERFLUOUS IN THEIR LIVES AND REDEPLOY THAT ENERGY IN A MORE INTELLIGENT MANNER/LOSE OUR SELF-REFLECTION . EE. but once the seal of the body has been broken through wasteful excesses.

The fight is right here in this chest. you wouldn't have time for petty fights. TSC. it takes all the time and all the energy we have to conquer the idiocy in us..

Warriors prepare themselves to be aware.. she said those sages were convinced that the boundless unknown is guarded by an enormous dragon whose scales shine with a dazzling light.167-why we need to lose self-importance-essence of why everything Don Juan did what he did. Only when they are nothing do they become everything. can we give the seer in us full reign or can the impersonal energy of the universe turn into the very personal force intent. it turns into power. simply to lessen the control that society has over us) WHEN SELF-IMPORTANCE IS CURTAILED. we can become empty of thought and desire.147.. Clara said that they were confident that by merging with the dragon's intent.. Clara reiterated that in order to empty ourselves.When self-importance is curtailed. When we have emptied ourselves sufficiently of our obsolete and encumbering inventory.102 Chinese sages of ancient times used to say that in order to know your worth. and by its burning breath that turns to ashes everything within its reach. you have to slip through the eye of the dragon.. They believed that the courageous seekers who dare to approach the dragon are awed by its blinding glare. . the energy it requires is no longer expended..167 WHEN OUR WAREHOUSE IS EMPTY/INVENTORY IS DISCARDED THEN ENERGY CAN FLOW THROUGH US/WHEN WE BECOME NOTHING If our warhouse is empty. we have to sink into a state of profound recapitulation and let energy flow through us impeded. HOW DOES LOSING YOUR SELF-IMPORTANCE FREE OUR ENERGY? (The lose of self-importance can also be thought of the lose of socialization. THE ENERGY IT REQUIRES IS NO LONGER EXPENDED. and full awareness comes to them only when there is no more self-importance left in them.. the body itself is empty. . therefore invisible. it means that through recapitulation. energy comes to us and gathers itself naturally. when enough of it coalesces.

. they lose their self-compassion.... POS.. their self-importance crumbles. 3 If you want to find your life. POS.. POS. It was therefore safe to say that any movement of the AP away from its customary position resulted in a movement away from man's self-reflection and its concomitant: selfimportance. automatically and without premeditation. TAOD. I want to make myself zero. However.167 By seperating the social part of perception.. his contact with the abstract causes him to overcome his feeling of selfimportance. sorcerers knew by means of their practical actions. you'll perceive the essence of everything.37 A WARRIOR ACTS FOR HIMSELF BUT HIS CONTACT WITH THE SPIRIT HELPS HIS SELF BECOME ABSTRACT AND IMPERSONAL In a way. the movement itself entails moving from self-reflection.. that as soon as their assemblage points move.. TOP.the internal dialogue is what grounds us. I have the greatest ambition imaginable.159 It was therefore safe to say that any movement of the AP away from its customary position resulted in a movement away from man's self-reflection and its concomitant: selfimportance. the world is such and such or so and so.. Once the assemblage point has moved. ANY MOVEMENT OF THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT AWAY FROM ITS HABITUAL SPOT MEANS A MOVEMENT FROM SELF-REFLECTION/SELF-IMPORTANCE He explained that sorcerers had discovered that any movement of the AP means movement away from the excessive concern with that individual self which was the mark of modern man.M.19.WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE FREE OUR ENERGY? IT AUTOMATICALLY MOVES THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT AND THIS SERVES AS THE BASIS FOR A CLEAR CONNECTING LINK WITH THE NAGUAL That increased energy then serves as the springboard that launches the assemblage point. (Jesus). . (Gandhi)..158.. assures a clear connecting link with the spirit. Without the customary position of their AP. a warrior is all for himself for a warrior everything begins and ends with himself. 47 . And without the heavy focus on that self-image. EE. POS... their self image can no longer be sustained. Then the self becomes abstract and impersonal. and this in turn.. you have to lose it. into an inconceivable journey. THE MOVEMENT OF THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT INCREASES THE PERCEPTION OF THE WARRIOR ... only because we talk to ourselves about its being such and such or so and so.. TAOD. and with it their self-importance.173.

165. FFW. as a consequence of new habits.. Seeing must be direct.142. FFW. This is the equivalent of saying that our command becomes the Eagle's command..137. the AP can move almost at will.148. allows their senses a greater range of perception. one must become aware that the world we perceive is the result of our AP's being located on a specific spot on the cocoon. the capacity to perceive the energetic essence of things.248 OUR NEW COMMAND OF THE AP BECOMES THE EAGLE'S NEW COMMAND The new seers say that realization is the technique. by repetitious acts. It goes without saying that when our awareness develops into first attention the command is so strong that to break that circle and make the AP shift is a genuine triumph..34. because the Eagle commands it. because you've freed enough energy to expand your perception. for a warrior can't ... The AP of man appears around a definite area of the cocoon. Our command becomes the Eagle's command. Anyone can perceive it. WHEN SORCERERS MOVE THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT ENOUGH. any thought that one holds in mind in a state of silence is properly a command. provided he has enough energy.50 SEEING IS THE ACT OF DEALING DIRECTLY WITH THE NAGUAL seeing was the act of dealing directly with the nagual. first of all.. the more stable the AP gets to be. TSC. the greater your capacity to perceive extraordinary things. Once that is understood. ..141. POS. derived from the curtailment of their self-reflection.10).(fields of energy. Seeing is not a force. The greater your energy. SORCERERS LEARN TO "SEE" WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO "SEE"? SEEING IS THE CAPACITY TO PERCEIVE ENERGY DIRECTLY Seeing. it enters into a vicious circle. The recapitulation is the key. TSC. it releases that trapped energy and voila! You see infinity right in front of your eyes. The tragedy is that most of our energy is trapped in nonsensical concerns. but rather getting through things. TAOD.once the glow of awareness focuses on man's band of emanations and selects some for emphasis.232.137. TOP. FFW.. TOP..FFW.. SR. First we learn that it can be placed there and then we ourselves command it to be there. The more it emphasizes certain emanations.. an act that was an unavoidable end result of the teachings but an unattainable task as a task per se. 3.The sorcerer's increased energy. then you must bring up the image of the person that you want to see. since there are no other thoughts to compete with it.. to perceive energy directly. First you must stop your internal dialogue. But the precise spot is determined by habit..215 this is sorcery! You can perceive it now.

.. since seeing had nothing to do with manipulatory techniques of sorcery.use his time to unravel what he himself is seeing.. FFW.167..had no effect on men. TOP.. when such an alignment occurs one sees.seeing is a euphemism for moving the AP..one who sees knows that to believe that is to be pinned down in the realm of sorcerers. Clara said that this moment of direct knowing was called the seer by the people who first formulated the recapitulation.254..SR. Seeing...134.242. He felt there was nor reason why not. SEEING HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SORCERY He spoke about seeing as a process independent of the allies and the techniques of sorcery. EG. They could act upon you. A sorcerer was a person who command an ally and thus manipulate an ally's power to his advantage. By the same token... and one doesn't know how it happened. but the fact that he commanded an ally did not mean that he could see.. to .99 HOW DOES SEEING COME ABOUT? SEEING IS A RESULT OF MOVING THE AP.the logical conclusion for my intellect would be to say that seeing is a bodily knowledge.seeing is a peculiar feeling of knowing something without a shadow of a doubt.71. Statements are made with great certainity... therefore being produced by alignment out of the ordinary cannot be something one could merely look at.167.. The techniques of seeing. because it allows us to directly see into things with unclouded eyes.72 SEEING HAPPENS BETWEEN THE WORLDS OF ORDINARY PEOPLE AND THE WORLD OF SORCERERS Perhaps you know now that seeing happens only when one sneaks between the worlds. because a man who sees can learn.. seeing is alignment. Don Juan very calmly replied that he had come to the conclusion it was possible to see and yet not command an ally. in no time at all. Seeing is seeing because it cuts through all that nonsense TOP. the alignment of emanations used routinely is the perception of the day-to-day world. SR.Seeing is not sorcery.. but the alignment of emanations that are never used ordinarily is seeing.37. the world of ordinary people and the world of sorcerers. which served only to act upon our fellow men.151 SEEING IS A FEELING/DIRECT KNOWING/BODILY KNOWLEDGE . They are real worlds. TSC. JTI. FFW.18. not to believe that coyotes talk is to be pinned down in the realm of ordinary men.Seeing is like that.. yet one may easily confuse them. seeing is not a matter of the eyes. USING NEW ALIGNMENTS .. I reminded him that he had told me before that it was impossible to see unless one had an ally. FFW.

SR..256. to train the eyes to look was.. a man may learn certain techniques in order to command an ally and thus become a sorcerer.therefore. SWITCHING BETWEEN LOOKING AND SEEING/FUNCTION OF THE EYES you must do it yourself (seeing) once you learn..manipulate an ally and may become a sorcerer. or awed by them. for a sorcerer to say that looking consisted in viewing the tonal which is in everything and seeing .. everything is so equal that nothing is funny. or be indifferent to them.. you can see every single thing in the world in a different way.. A sight of the naugal.37. we need to look with our eyes to laugh because only when we look at things can we catch the funny edge of the world. and yet he may never learn to see. and the only other fashion I know is the way of a sorcerer.He said that the eyes of man could perform both functions (seeing and looking) but neither of them was better than the other. if a warrior viewed observed the world as a human being.168 WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOOKING AND SEEING? SEEING IS NOT USING THE EYES ALONE I never said that seeing is a matter of the eyes alone. because all of us could view those sights. On the other hand. needed the specialized senses of a sorcerer in order to be seen at all. SR. when our eyes see.. or cry.. on the other hand. On the other hand.252 LOOKING CONSISTED IN VIEWING THE TONAL WHICH IS IN EVERYTHING AND SEEING . JTI. CONSISTED IN VIEWING THE NAUGAL WHICH ALSO IS IN EVERYTHING She added that we could stumble upon the most outlandish sights of the tonal and be scared of them. SRP. he was looking. and what he was seeing was properly called the nagual. or rejoice. in his opinion.83 In order to see one must learn to look at the world in some other fashion....199. or be happy. When I want to look at the world I see it the way you do.. however. DO THINGS CHANGE WHEN YOU SEE? . both the tonal and naugal were present in everything at all times.I see both ways. It was appropriate. SR. SR. Accordingly.. our eyes may look so we may laugh. And yet. he was seeing. consisted in viewing the naugal which also is in everything. but if he observed it as a sorcerer. Then when I want to see it I look at it the way I know and I perceive it in a different way. an unnecessary loss. ON THE OTHER HAND.

. Once a man learns to see he finds himself alone in the world with nothing but folly. ULTIMATE REALITY SEEING THE ULTIMATE NATURE OF THINGS . AND YET IT IS THE SAME When you learn to see. not a single thing he knows prevails.. and yet it is the same. the old seers actually saw the indescribable force which is the source of all sentient beings. I told you.the capacity of human beings to enlarge their perceptual field until they are capable of assessing not only the outer appearances but the essence of everything. YOU JUST CHANGE YOUR WAY OF LOOKING AT THEM things don't change.a thing is never the same every time you see it. WHEN YOU LEARN TO SEE.. When a man learns to see. Once we see. SR.55 EVERYTHING UNIMPORTANT WHEN YOU LEARN TO SEE. SR. to witness the unknown and to glimpse into the unknowable. Seeing makes one realize the importance of it all. You can see them for what they really are.. SR. FFW..8. nothing remains as we used to know it when we didn't see.81..seeing as a special capacity that one could develop and which would allow one to apprehand the ultimate nature of things. FFW. perhaps the Tibetans really see... FFW. If the Tibetans could see they could tell right away that not a single thing is no longer the same. When one learns to see.THINGS DON'T CHANGE WHEN YOU SEE. TOP.37. for instance. the unimportance of everything.54. that's all.... and if he cannot think about what he looks at everything becomes unimportant. in which case what they wrote isn't crap at all..you can tell things apart.

SR. he realizes that he can no longer think about the things he looks at.194. your acts as well as the acts of your fellow men in general appear to be important to you because you . SR..168.seeing entailed a very complex process by virtue of which a man of knowledge allegedly perceives the essence of the things of the world.A THING IS NEVER THE SAME EVERY TIME YOU SEE IT.to lay bare the core of everything. yet it is not the same egg. not a single thing is the same.10. in which case they must have realized that what they see makes no sense at all and they wrote that bunch of crap because it doesn't make any difference to them.70. Not a single thing... SR.27. Every time I see the same man I see an egg. But then when a man learns to see. nothing is known..37. EVERYTHING BECOMES UNIMPORTANT/EQUAL Besides seeing is contrary to sorcery. that a man is like an egg...

The thing that should give you chills is not to have anything to look forward to but a lifetime of doing that which you have always done. SR.122 Then power becomes a serious matter. SR. Seeing is very difficult and is not a matter of talk. TOP. Everything a man does hinges on his personal power.you're thinking about life.you're not seeing.81.. yet one knows that something is there..IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PIN IT DOWN AND SAY WHAT IT IS REALLY IS power is a very peculiar affair. A man who sees has no longer an active interest in his fellow men. but he desires nothing. your impeccability and personal power are such that you are capable of fulfilling your tasks.it is impossible to pin it down and say what it is really is. TOP.106. therefore. JTI. while his fellow men can't. you believe that (nothing matters is bad) because you're thinking.. or one may not even fully realize that it exists. Next power is manifested as something uncontrollable that comes to oneself.80 AFTER SEEING/ UPON LEARNING TO SEE A MAN BECOMES EVERYTHING BY BECOMING NOTHING. Each warrior has a different fate. for one who doesn't have any. the only difference between them is that a man who sees controls his folly...have learned to think they are important. he meets them in the midst of their folly. If. so there is no way of telling what that promise will be for either of you. you will then achieve the promise of power. He so to speak vanishes and yet he's there. one may not have it.105. the deeds of a powerful man are incredible. SR. it is not possible for me to . And what's that promise?. Seeing has already detached him from absolutely everything he knew before... WHAT IS POWER? POWER IS A VERY PECULIAR AFFAIR. personal power is the only thing that matters.it is a promise that power makes to men as luminous beings. and instead of playing with his fellow men like they were toys. OUR NEW ENERGY THEN BECOMES POWER PERSONAL POWER PERSONAL POWER IS THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IN THE DOINGS AND NOT-DOINGS OF WARRIORS As is always the in the doings and not doings of warriors.277. It is not possible for me to say how it comes to oneself.164.. HE SO TO SPEAK VANISHES AND YET HE'S THERE/DEALING WITH PEOPLE Upon learning to see a man becomes everything by becoming nothing. I would say that this is the time when a man can be or can get anything he desires. something which was not noticeable before. JTI.

it commands you and yet it obeys you.... something that controls one's acts and yet obeys one's command. JTI. That is the rule. you would've stored enough personal power to find a benefactor. And finally power is something in oneself. it belongs to oneself alone. It is a feeling that one has about certain things.say how it comes or what it really is. JTI. was a bridge. Power does not belong to anyone... JTI. JTI.164... IT TAKES POWER TO EVEN CONCEIVE WHAT POWER IS It takes power to even conceive what power is. I don't know why a bridge. Power is a very weird affair... JTI. power is like that. but I know you don't understand. Or one may call it a mood.JTI. PERSONAL POWER IS SOMETHING THAT ONE ACQUIRES REGARDLESS OF ONE'S ORIGIN.135.122 Personal power is a feeling. POWER IS PERSONAL....157.97. IT IS A FEELING THAT ONE HAS ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS.. .. this time. IT BELONGS TO ONESELF ALONE..power.. Power is personal. POWER CAN BE ANYTHING I just saw power. It is nothing and yet it makes marvels appear before your very eyes. JTI..134.if you had seriously used those four techniques.. It may have been anything.. Power for you. it commands you and yet it is at your command. TOP.164. JTI. JTI.. not because you don't want to but because you have very little personal power.236. POWER DOES NOT BELONG TO ANYONE.something like being lucky.122.power provides according to your impeccabiltiy.134. In order to have it and command it one must have power to begin with... JTI.. We are most mysterious creatures. You would've been impeccable and power would have opened all the necessary avenues.122 POWER PROVIDES ACCORDING TO YOUR IMPECCABILTIY .

it was useless unless that person utilized it for his own search of personal power. WITH SUFFICIENT STORED PERSONAL POWER YOU CAN USE YOUR WILL AS A FUNCTIONING UNIT that you have stored sufficient personal power to enable you to turn your will into a functioning unit..132 . EITHER BY ITSELF OR UNDER SOMEONE'S COMMAND. is to be convinced. I already have told you that a warrior is a hunter of power. TOP. .. because sorcerers know that only by boosting the tonal can the nagual emerge. and thus one of the balancing arts of the warrior is to make the nagual emerge in order to prop up the tonal. TOP.that boosting is called personal power. You need to believe that personal power can be used and that it is possible to store it.164. either by itself or under someone's command. AND EVERYTHING TELLS HIM A SECRET A hunter of power watches everything.Power is when energy gathers. Some of us may gather it and then it could be given directly to someone else.158.. in anything he himself wanted.... A HUNTER OF POWER WATCHES EVERYTHING. JTI. You see. and that I am teaching you how to hunt and store it. but when it came to giving it directly to another person.164..Personal power is something that one acquires regardless of one's origin.157. I say its an art.82. and everything tells him a secret.. the difficulty with you. . but you haven't been convinced so far. WE NEED PERSONAL POWER TO BOOST THE TONAL Because of its inherent weakness the tonal is easily destroyed.. the key to stored power is that it can be used only to help someone else store power. POWER IS WHEN ENERGY GATHERS.. which is the difficulty with all of us.106 SOME OF US MAY GATHER IT AND THEN IT COULD BE GIVEN DIRECTLY TO SOMEONE ELSE. THE KEY TO STORED POWER IS THAT IT CAN BE USED ONLY TO HELP SOMEONE ELSE STORE POWER. JTI..DJ said he could use his personal power however he pleased.. JTI. TSC. JTI.

TOP. the double. or every task she might ask me to perform. the abstract flight.62.. and the means to achieve it we call the recapitulation. Sometimes they refer to it as the abstract flight.. the moment our physical body becomes totally conscious of its energetic ethereal counterpart.6 the abstract flight takes place when we bring our double to bear on our daily lives. To draw the double gently and harmoniously and shift to it our awareness of daily life is something without parallel. for it entails soaring from the side of the concrete to the physical.the day before they jump into the abyss..224. that will be your invitation for you to go through the dragon's eye.121 For sorcerers to break such perceptual dispositions enables one to cross a barrier and leap into the unimaginable.248.259.66 You were supposed to cross the chasm gently and harmoniously and wake up with your double to full awareness in the left hallway. into our daily awareness.. This is what we call the abstract flight. a completely different realm of awareness. to the double... wings of perception... Theres nothing else to say about it. they call such a leap the sorcerers crossing. A SORCERER CAN ACCOMPLISH THEIR GOAL OF REGAINING THE TOTALITY OF OURSELVES TO COMPLETE THE ABSTRACT FLIGHT/SORCERER'S CROSSING (MAKING THE TONAL AWARE OF THE DOUBLE)/ REGAINING THE TOTALITY OF OURSELVES / EVERY PROCEDURE WAS A STEP TOWARD FULFILLING THE GOAL OF THE ABSTRACT FLIGHT every procedure she was going to teach me.. to the side of expanded perception and impersonal abstract forms.

The apex of the special art I want to teach you..is called the abstract flight.WITH THAT POWER.the mystery or the secret of the sorcerers explanation is that it deals with unfolding the wings of perception.

In my moves into the tonal I burst into unity.the wings of perception can take us to the most recondite confines of the nagual or to inconceivable worlds of the tonal... I was whole. To say that they were visions. OVERALL SORCERER'S EXPLANATION FOR THE ABSTRACT FLIGHT (REVIEW) WE ARE A CLUSTER OF FEELINGS. My perception had coherence.. TOP.. TOP. i had vision of order..273.few warriors survive the encounter with the unknown that you are about to have. their vividness so real and their complexity so vast that i have not been capable of explaining them to my satisfaction. This is the sorcerers explanation..263 Last night was the first time you flew on the wings of your perception. . The nagual is the unspeakable. unifying sense that i ordinarily do. SRP.. and warriors who are journeying into it find that to return to the tonal or to the world of order and noise and pain.your perception unfolded its wings when something in you realized your true nature.

All the possible feelings and beings and selves float in it like barges.7. In my moves into the naugal I perceived my body disintegrating. The decision to stay or return is done by something in us which is neither our reason nor our desire. forever. a crows. . last night you went back and forth from the nagual to the tonal time and time again. is a most appealing affair.

TOP.THE CLUSTER IS CALLED THE BUBBLE OF PERCEPTION I have called that cluster the bubble of perception. TOP. barriers that seperate the physical body from the double..263 . TOP.. The tonal is where all the unified organization exists..264 AFTER WE ARE BINDED WE LOSE THE SENSE OF OUR TRUE NATURE AND ARE BLINDED BY THE TONAL .264 THE ABSTRACT FLIGHT MEANS TO SHIFT YOUR AWARENESS BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN YOUR BODY AND YOUR DOUBLE WHICH WOULD RESULT IN ERASING ALL THE NATURAL BARRIERS DEVELOPED THROUGH LIFE. A being pops into the tonal once the force of life has bound all the needed feelings together. Sorcerer's have obviously learned that secret.At death however.. the nagual. TOP.. I said to you once that the tonal begins at birth and ends at death.263 THE BUBBLE OF PERCEPTION IS USUALLY SEALED AND CLOSED AND DOES NOT OPEN UNTIL THE MOMENT OF OUR DEATH I have also said that it is sealed.264 AT DEATH ALL OF THOSE SINGLE AWARENESSES DISINTEGRATE AND GO BACK AGAIN TO THE NAGUAL I said that because I know that as soon as the force of life leaves the body all those single awarenesses disintegrate and go back again to where they came from.. BARRIERS THAT SEPERATE THE PHYSICAL BODY AND THE DOUBLE under Nelida's direction I was supposed to shift my awareness back and forth between my body and my double.. TOP.when the glue of life binds those feelings together a being is created. and although not all of them arrive at the totality of themselves. this shifting was to have erased all the natural barriers developed through life. closed tightly and that it never opens until the moment of our death.TOP. a being that loses the sense of its true nature and becomes blinded by the glare and clamour of the area where beings hover. they sink deeply and move independently as if they had never been a unit. the tonal..... The sorcerer's .264 SORCERER'S HAVE LEARNED HOW TO OPEN THAT BUBBLE Yet it could be made to open. they know about the possibility of it.

264 ONCE THE FORCE OF LIFE IS EXHAUSTED THE CLUSTER CANNOT BE REASSEMBLED Once the force of life is exhausted there is no way to reassemble that cluster. IT'S UP TO THE WARRIOR TO DIRECT HOW THE CLUSTER WILL BE ARRANGED I've said to you that the expression of the nagual is a personal matter. since my double already knew them. Yesterday I gave you a recapitulation of all the steps that you have followed to arrive at that point. although one can never explain it.. Your reason at this point might even admit that there is another center of assemblage.264 . TOP.one can only witness it. I meant that it is up to the individual warrior himself to direct the arrangement and rearrangement of that cluster. TOP. perhaps the sweetest form of them all to us.266. Thus. It has finally dawned on your reason that one can reflect the nagual through the will. TOP.264 THE WILL ALLOWS A WARRIOR TO GO INTO THE NAGUAL AND BE REARRANGED There is no way to refer to the unknown. WHEN THE BUBBLE IS OPENED WE PLUNGE INTO THE NAGUAL They know that the bubble opens only when one plunges into the nagual.263 THE FORCE AND BINDING OF LIFE MAKES ALL THAT SHUFFLING POSSIBLE The force of life is what makes all that shuffling possible. The sorcerers explanation says that each of us has a center from which the nagual can be witnessed. except that his cluster of single feelings do not disintegrate but expand a bit without losing their togetherness..TSC. HIS CLUSTER DOES NOT DISINTEGRATE BUT EXPAND A BIT WITHOUT LOSING THEIR TOGETHERNESS What a warrior does in journeying into the unknown is very much like dying. The human form of human feeling is the original one..224. a warrior can venture into the nagual and let his cluster arrange and rearrange itself in any way possible. through which it is possible to judge or assess and use the extraordinary effects of the nagual.264 Your reason cannot fight the physical knowledge that you are a nameless cluster of feelings.was to allow me to get acquainted with all of them in person.

A warrior must be taught to be impeccable and thoroughly empty before he could even conceive witnessing the nagual. it is my personal commitment to make you a warrior so you won't crumble. but to prepare his tonal not to crap out.

TOP. and by placing them outside the bounds of prediction. in essence. WHAT ELSE DOES THE SORCERER'S WAY ACCOMPLISH? TO TRAIN OUR RATIONAL SIDE TO NOT GO CRAZY WHEN THE IRRATIONAL SIDE BEGINS TO AWAKEN.what a apprentice needs to buffer him is temperance and strength. one can perceive the here and the there at once.The secret of the double is in the bubble of perception which in your case that night was at the top of the cliff and at the bottom of the gorge at the same time. it would give you a false meekness.176.49.215 he said the effects of those two techniques were ultimately devastating if they were exercised in their totality..... He said that all the techniques which he had taught me and which I had considered empty talk were.. A sorcerer who is in the possession of the totality of himself can direct the parts of his cluster to join in any conceivable way. A most difficult accomplishment. In other words.171 One of the aims of the warrior's training was to cut the bewilderment of the tonal until the warrior was so fluid that he could admit everything without admitting anything.erasing personal history and dreaming should only be help..without the sturdiness and level-headedness of the warrior's way there is no possibility of withstanding the path of knowledge TOP. I have endeavored to show you those forces as a sorcerer perceives them. by making the self and world fluid.bit by bit a teacher must forge and develop it. That is why a teacher introduces the warrior's way. a desire to retreat.. by the time a warrior had conquered dreaming and seeing and he had developed a double. TOP... or living like a warrior. To see without first being a warrior would make you weak.THERE ARE AN ENDLESS NUMBER OF FORMS THAT THE CLUSTER MAY ADOPT there are.. self-importance. This is the glue that joins together everything in sorcerer's world.233 TO TRAIN THE DOUBLE TO BE OF SOME PRACTICALITY IN THE ORDINARY WORLD..264 THE CLUSTER OF FEELINGS CAN BE MADE TO ASSEMBLE INSTANTLY ANYWHERE .

TOP. perhaps a routine as empty as any other routine.TO BE UNBIASED WITNESSES TO WHAT THEY EXPERIENCE WHICH ALLOWS THE SORCERER TO FIND OUT WHAT WE REALLY ARE. Today.

And since there is no final step to anything.79 GOAL OF THE TEACHINGS WAS TO SHOW HOW TO BECOME A MAN OF KNOWLEDGE The goal of his teachings was to show how to become a man of knowledge. Follow it and your acts cannot be criticized by anyone.so the matter of secrecy about the sorcerer's explanation boils down to a routine. The new cycle. we begin by understanding that the fixation of the movement of the AP is all there is to us and the world we witness. FLAWS IN THE WARRIOR'S WAY THERE IS NO FLAW IN THE WARRIOR'S WAY There is no flaw in the warrior's way. or draining yourself.. the warrior's way would assemble what you've learned. TDJ. FFW. FFW.Take yesterday for example. whatever that world might be. otherwise they would have to assume the responsibility for bringing about a more adjusted cycle. there shouldn't be any secrecy about any part of our lot as luminous beings.190. if it is to come.167 In order to be unbiased witnesses. NO FINAL STEP TO THE SORCERER'S EXPLANATION NO FINAL STEP TO ANYTHING In my opinion there is no final crossroad. the warrior's way would have been.. And not every warrior attains it. No one can do that. must come of itself. Do that and no one can flaws in it.225. warriors are in the world to train themselves to be unbiased witnesses. This is the highest of the new seers' goals.

61. The intent of all sorcery acts has already been set. All we have to do is hook our awareness to it.170 TO KNOW INTENT IS TO KNOW IT DIRECTLY THROUGH OUR CONNECTING LINK . DJ said this level was pure understanding. POS.a clear connection with intent. POS. we must know what we're doing when we intend the result-not the purpose. TSC. set up your intent as a customs house... 28 INTENDING RESULTS BY HOOKING OUR AWARENESS TO SOMETHING ALREADY THERE To make sorcery work. Emilito. Therefore the most important thing I had to do now was to set up a new intent. explained that the intent of sorcerers differs from that of average people in that sorcerers have learned to focus their attention with infinitely more force and precision..for the warrior.212..The only way to know intent. mind you. and you and I don't have that much power. He explained that this new intent was called sorcerer's intent because it isn't just the intent of doing something new. and all we would have would be an indefinite sense of needing something. but the intent of joining something already established.. NOT PROCEDURES The edifice that intent flaunts before us is. POS.106. TSC. a clearinghouse. an intent that reaches out to us through thousands of years of human toil.. 124.. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CONNECT WITH INTENT? IT TAKES A LONG TIME . Without the silent knowledge no process would work. then... but the result of the sorcery act. he (Emilito) said that everything I (Taisha) did was tainted by defeat. If we intended the purpose of our sorcery actions.209. TOP. THE INTENT OF SORCERERS DIFFERS FROM THAT OF AVERAGE PEOPLE IN THAT SORCERERS HAVE LEARNED TO FOCUS THEIR ATTENTION WITH INFINITELY MORE FORCE AND PRECISION. we would be creating sorcery. within which we find not so much the procedures to clear our connecting link as the silent knowledge that allows the clearing process to take place.107. SILENT KNOWLEDGE IS NEEDED TO MAKE ANY PROCESS WORK. TSC.matter of an instantaneous shift taking place once a certain level of proficiency had been attained. is to know it directly through a living connection that exists between intent and all sentient beings. TSC.

WHAT CAN SORCERER'S DO WITH THEIR INTENT? ONLY SORCERERS CAN TURN THEIR FEELINGS INTO INTENT . not even even at the worst moments of doubt. allow the word to burst out from your midsection loud and clear.186. at times it even comes to us.187. is to catch the attention not of the visible reality. EG.227 WHEN WE BECOME WARRIORS. .it will be a long time before you can apply the principle that your command is the Eagle's command.187. but bring it out from the depths of you.....

We were trying to catch the attention of your double TSC.. the force that is the source of your existence.241 TECHNIQUES FOR INTENDING SHOUTING OUT INTENT I want you to say intent three of four times or even more.. That's the essence of the mystery of intent. it will be a slow process until that command is heard and obeyed as if it were the Eagle's command.... shout as loud and as many times as it's needed. THE INDISPENSIBLE PART OF THE ACT OF CALLING INTENT WAS A TOTAL CONCENTRATION ON WHAT WAS INTENDED . You stop when something happens or when I tell you to stop because nothing has happened. TSC.only sorcerers can turn their feelings into intent. TSC... INTENT BECOMES OUR FRIEND. as if it had been waiting for us..

EG.... EG.. I could...133. USING THE SHINE OF THEIR EYES TO MOVE THEIR AP Naturally..133. the indispensible part of the act of calling intent was a total concentration on what was intended. align the emanations that made me see Genaro as a blob of light.. Since eyes have their own memory. the average man knows the same thing about eyes but has no energy to explain it.133.. POS.

Usually intent was called from within a small..292 using the eyes to beckon intent was how to expedite letting go of that intent. enunciated clearly and deliberately as many times as one felt was needed. INTENT IS BECKONED WITH THE EYES .228 the eyes are only superficially connected to the world of everyday life. Their deeper connection is to the abstract..EG.because eyes are directly connected with intent .stalkers called intent loudly..309 .

It was a look that went through me.. he had fixed his gaze on me and I had an inexplicable feeling of vacuity.. that something has direction and can be focused on anything. I became tongue-tied at once and continue with the harangues about myself.there's no way of practicing it. One has the actual physical sensation that one is holding something with the will.

Yet it was not menacing or awesome in any way.it was a direct blow to your tonal. I felt he had actually grabbed me with his eyes. JTI..308 THEY KNEW HOW TO USE THEIR EYES TO CATCH ANOTHER ASPECT OF INTENT AND CALLED THIS ACT SEEING.134. Yet he did not make people sick all the time but only when his personal power was involved..at a given moment in the life of a warrior it simply happens.THE REASON WHY SEEING SEEMS TO BE VISUAL IS BECAUSE WE NEED THE EYES TO FOCUS ON INTENT ..thus the danger of that manoeuvre. out of focus.they knew how to use their eyes to catch another aspect of intent and called this act seeing. women would wane away after he had set eyes on them. in a physical sense...what Silvio manuel had shown me was the true function of the eyes. It was a formidable look. No one knows how....DJ's look. Usually the left eye of a warrior has a strange appearance..... or numbness..TOP. The secret is in the left eye. I had the sensation of two fingers gently clasping me and I acknowleged a weird agitation.

FFW. you won't soothe yourself bobbing your head like that. I prefer to roll mine clockwise. or despair. the secret is not in the head shake but in the feeling that comes to the eyes from the area below the stomach. to focus it wherever he wants..

Sometimes the pain and discomfort are so great that the warrior has convulsions for months. then it becomes a pain..

But as he keeps on performing impossible acts.197. he may not even notice his extraordinarily deed. HIS IMPECCABLE WILL TAKES OVER AND ASSEMBLES THE FOG INTO ONE PERSON AGAIN. A sorcerer uses his will to perceive the will. When we look at the world or when we hear it. That feeling is the will.

TECHNIQUE/METHODS FOR SHUTTING OFF THE INTERNAL DIALOGUE NOT-DOINGS WHAT ARE NOT-DOINGS? WHEN YOU FOCUS ON FEATURES ON SOMETHING THAT WERE ORDINARILY OVERLOOKED (ANYTHING THAT IS NOT IN OUR INVENTORY) . is a very important technique but it was not the main issue. that practical task is called the right way of walking.279 HAVING A PRACTICAL TASK IS NEEDED TO STOP THE WORLD In order to stop the view of the world which one has held since the cradle.a perceptual game of focusing attention on features of the world that were ordinarily overlooked.there were two major activities or techniques used to accelerate the stopping of the internal dialogue. . THROUGH EXERCISES OF NON-DOING. It seems harmless and nonsensical.TOP. it is not enough to just wish or make a resolution.229. through exercises of nondoing. unaided by anyone. TOP. to see it on my own. FFW. EG.not-doing. FFW. like everything else. As everything else which has power in itself or by itself. was an important step. The second attention was brought into action or was harnessed.an obligatory step in order to release all ties from my AP. because all of us have certain ideas that must be broken before we are free. erasing personal history and dreaming.231. One needs a practical task. EG....277. . the right way of walking does not attract attention. TOP... it refers to everything that is not included in the inventory that was forced upon us.

I call that doing. NOT-DOING IS ANYTHING THAT IS NOT PART OF OUT INVENTORY When we engage any item of our forced inventory we are doing. JTI. ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT PART ABOUT THE WARRIOR'S WAY IS TO REALIZE THAT THE WORLD IS A FEELING. PROVIDING THAT IT FORCES THE ATTENTION TO REMAIN FIXED ..88. Not-doing is very simple but very difficult. The world is the world because you know the doing involved in making it so... EG..anything may suffice as a not-doing to help dreaming..DOING IS ENGAGING ANY ITEM OF OUR FORCED INVENTORY.189. Not-doing. 'Doing' was anything part of a whole for which we had a cognitive account.without that certain doing there would be nothing familiar in the surroundings.Not-doing was an element that did not belong to the charted whole.. C.it is not a matter of understanding but of mastering it. JTI.194.189. knows that the rock is a rock only because of doing. To look at it is doing but to see it is not-doing. JTI. the world would be different. Doing is what makes you yourself and me myself.... POS. if one starts talking about doing. JTI. TSC.. if that's what you'd want to do..188. The most difficult part about the warrior's way is to realize that the world is a feeling. if you didn't know its doing. ANYTHING MAY BE USED AS A NOT-DOING.. it is better to just act..JTI... only then can you talk about it freely.JTI.. one always ends up talking about something else.there is no way to talk about it. because it is the body that does it.137 NOT-DOING IS DIFFICULT TO DO something that is very simple but very difficult to perform.not until you have stopped the world. the dissonant element (see stopping the world) or the opposite of doing. so if he doesn't want the rock to be a rock all he has to do is not-doing.. anything that is not part of that inventory is not-doing. not-doing is so difficult and so powerful that you should not mention it..172 DOING IS THE PROBLEM/TALKING Doing is what makes a rock a rock and that bush a bush. A man of knowledge..188 That rock is a rock because of all the things you know how to do to it.it always confuses the issues.that's the problem with talking....193 WHEN ONE IS NOT-DOING ONE IS FEELING THE WORLD AND ONE FEELS THE WORLD THROUGH ITS LINES .. providing that it forces the attention to remain fixed.

In the case of the exercise. not-doing would be to change that pebble into a power object. Not-doing is only for very strong warriors and you don't have the power to deal with it yet.190. Then he turned my hand until the palm was facing the front. Now you will only trap horrendous things with your hand. because the lines formed by the hand were not durable enough to be of real value in a practical situation.193 TALKING AS DOING/EXERCISE OF NOT-DOING TO FEEL THE LINES OF THE WORLD Talking is doing for you. you cannot leave it lying around but must bury it. by not-doing.DOING Now in order to stop the world you must stop doing. JTI.JTI. Not-doing would be to proceed with that pebble as if it were something far beyond a mere rock. STOPPING THE WORLD BY NOT.189...if you want to learn not-doing.192. something like a disease or an unwelcoming feeling.When one is not-doing. In this case. in the case of this little rock. Doing would be to leave the pebble lying around because it is merely a small rock. which a warrior does if he wants to stop the world is to enlarge a little rock. JTI.. not-doing consisted in repeating it until one felt the heavy body with the hand. he curved my fingers so my hand looked as if I were holding a doorknob. JTI. He made me lie down and took my right arm and bent it at my elbow. however. He said that if I could pick out the detail. DJ said that a warrior executed that movement every time he wanted to push something out of his body. lets say you have to join them.the first thing which doing does to it is to shrink it to this size.. . but talking is not appropriate and if you want to know what I mean by not-doing you have to do a simple exercise.190 He placed the pebble on the boulder and then asked me to come closer and examine it. He told me to look at the holes and depressions in the pebble and try to pick out the minute detail in them. one is feeling the world. the holes and depressions would disappear and I would understand what not-doing meant. and as such. and one feels the world through its lines. that pebble has soaked in you for a long time and now it is you. and then he began to move my arm back and forth with a circular motion that resembled the act of pushing and pulling a lever attached to a wheel. until your hand doesn't get cold any more. Doing makes you seperate the pebble from the larger boulder. Since we are concerned with not-doing it doesn't matter whether you do the exercise now or ten years from now. JTI. If you would have personal power.193.189. So do it little by little.190.. I had begun to feel a sort of mushiness around my hand. JTI. So the proper thing to do. (see lines of the world) DJ said that this was only an exercise. a solid body. The idea was to push and pull an imaginary opposing force until one felt a heavy object. in spite of the fact that one could never believe it was possible to feel it. stopping the free movements of the hand. JTI. Whenever your hand remains warm you can actually feel the lines of the world with it. A WARRIOR ALWAYS TRIES TO NOT-DO A warrior always tries to affect the force of doing by changing it into not-doing. I began moving my arm and in a short while my hand became ice cold. It was as if I were paddling through some heavy viscous liquid matter. Your life is not tight enough to do that. if you . or any other thing.

. and that by indulging myself in it I had almost turned not-doing into my familiar doing. But if things are said to be untrue. on the other hand. A warrior. and in a different way with things he knows are not true. DON'T SUCCUMB TO IT He added that it was a natural tendency for all of us to indulge ourselves when feelings of that nature occurred (getting lost in a feeling). A WARRIOR DOES NOT CARE WHETHER OR NOT SOMETHING IS TRUE OR FALSE To say no or yes to your question is doing. because the only thing that is real is the being in you that is going to die. JTI.191. because in a way doing was a manner of succumbing. If things are said to be untrue.would see.200. JTI. acts in both instances. you would know that your heavy concern has changed that pebble into something quite unappealing. Everything I have taught you so far has been an aspect of not-doing. JTI. But since you are learning not-doing I have to tell you that it really doesn't matter whether or not all this is true.unreal and that to hinge yourself to either one is a waste of time. he would act in order to do doing. if things are said to be true. he doesn't care to act. An average man cares that things are either true or false. and yet I can't tell you more about it than what I have said today. LOSING PERSONAL HISTORY WHY DO WE NEED TO LOSE OUR PERSONAL HISTORY? .197. a warrior applies not-doing to everything in the world. EXAMPLES OF NOT-DOING 1. or he doesn't believe in what he does. To arrive at that being is the not-doing of the self. but a warrior doesn't.191.199. You must let your own body discover the power and the feeling of not-doing. therefore the best thing you can do is to dig a hole and bury it and let the earth absorb its heaviness. DOING AND NOT-DOING ARE LIES/DEATH IS THE ONLY REAL THING It may hook you to another doing and then you may realize that both doings are lies. JTI. An average man proceeds in a specific way with things he knows are true. he still would act in order to do not-doing. he said that what I should have done was to maintain the view without succumbing to it. JTI. he acts and believes in what he does. If things are said to be true. it is here that a warrior has a point of advantage over the average man. INDULGING IN FEELINGS FROM NOT-DOING.

JTI.One day I found out that personal history was no longer necessary for me and like drinking I dropped it.15. A daughter does not.270.

He marked a spot for me to stand on and told me to look at the shadows of the peaks..195.to believe that shadows are just shadows is doing. the doors of not-doing. or you may say that feelings come from them.

DJ reinforced my capacity to concentrate for long periods of time on one single activity. so there was no great accomplishment in perceiving it.GAZING AT WATER (water) especially running water. It allowed me to stop my internal dialogue after years of trying.262. or fluorescence. He said it was difficult to stare at the moving water and that one had to keep on trying. TDJ.172.87. or perhaps I entered into a perceptual state for which I had no parallel. I was sound asleep. SR.166 5. He told me not to gaze into the water. TOP. All of us are terrified of water. leaving only a stream of ordinary water. EG.. TOP. By forcing me to concentrate on the peripheral view..164. Description of watergazing experience.135.. Look at the water in front of you. round objects that came into my field of vision and moved out of it with a floating quality. IT ALSO TRAINS YOUR ATTENTION His method was effective on two counts.but don't let its sound carry you anywhere. THE RIGHT WAY OF WALKING WHAT IS THE RIGHT WAY OF WALKING? THE RIGHT WAY OF WALKING IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO STOP THE INTERNAL DIALOGUE (the right way of walking) is the most effective way to stop your internal dialogue.

He said that anyone can perceive the green fog because it was like the guardian.a river gathers the second attention and takes it away and there is no way of stopping. TOP. but to focus my eyes on the surface and keep them fixed until the water turned into a green fog. DJ ordered me again to gaze only at the water and not think at all.136 WHY IS THE RIGHT WAY OF WALKING SO EFFECTIVE? .87. SR.171 The foglike phenomenon was composed of tiny bubbles. SRP.168. Description of bubbles SR. which was used by formless sorcerers to gather their second attention and transport it to any place they needed to go.230. At first the water had a bright green halo. the closest way of describing it would be to say that I went to sleep and had a portentous dream. If you let the sound of the water carry you I may never be able to find you and bring you back. something that was unavoidably there.

instead of teaching to focus my view. to flood my awareness by not focusing my sight on anything. it was obvious to me that the effect DJ had been after in making them gaze was to teach them to stop the internal dialogue. He added that the eyes in that state were capable of picking out details which were too fleeting for normal vision. TOP. JTI. although he had made me follow the opposite path.IT SATURATES THE TONAL WITH SO MUCH INFORMATION IT CANNOT MAINTAIN A WORLD AND THUS BECOMES SILENT Walking in that specific manner saturates the tonal.230. DESCRIPTION OF HOW TO DO THE TECHNIQUE To teach me how to master it.La Gorda had expressed it as quieting down the thoughts.. at once.230.his idea was that by forcing the hands into a specific position one was capable of greater stamina and greater awareness. The tonal without its one-to-one relation with the elements of its description..135. He assured me that that exercise was the only way of shutting off the internal dialogue TOP. JTI. to keep a peripheral view of everything that presented itself to my eyes.. EG. while I kept my eyes unfocused just above the line of the horizon. uphold the view of the world as internal dialogue. SRP. TOP..267. so.19. everything in almost the 180 degree range in front of one's eyes. TOP. His recommendation had been to not look at anything directly but. by slightly crossing the eyes. above all. TOP..it floods it.. if one kept one's unfocused eyes at a point just above the horizon.230.19 .it is the attention that creates the order of the world in the first place. he taught me to open it. and then by looking. the tonal must be attentive to the elements of its world in order to maintain it. without focusing his eyes.. I had to sort of feel with my eyes everything in the 180-degree range in front of me.136.the position of the fingers did not matter at all. he used to make me walk for miles with my eyes held fixed and out of focus at a level just above the horizon so as to emphasize the periphereal view.the attention of the tonal has to be placed on its creations. at any point directly in front of him on the arc that started at the tip of his feet and ended above the horizon. one day I had just walked for about ten minutes without having said a single word to myself.. The warrior..19. appropriate form of walking.. I told DJ that I had practised the technique for years without noticing any change. he literally flooded his tonal with information. and that the important thing was the manner in which the eyes by being kept unfocused. drew attention to the arms. He claimed that my ordinary way of walking was debilitating and that one should never carry anything in the hands.. The right way of walking was a subterfuge.. DJ had taught me to do the very same thing. detected an enormous number of features of the world without being clear about them.. it was possible to notice.I had to curl my fingers gently as I walked so I would keep my attention on the trail and the surroundings. was incapable of talking to itself and thus one became silent. .19.. that the only consideration was to draw attention to the arms by clasping the fingers in various unaccustomed ways. first by curling his fingers. and must. as gazers did..

DARKNESS JOLTS OUR PERCEPTION BECAUSE THE EYES ARE SUBSIDIARY TO THE EARS that perception suffers a profound jolt when we are placed in states of quietude in darkness. it was excruciating at first to listen and not look.235.. A sorcerer's ally would reveal complicated affairs through the holes in the sounds. We talk to others and to ourselves mainly about what we see. SR.235 TO LIE ON THE GROUND LIKE CURLED-UP DOGS. EG..

WALKING BACKWARDS EG. the eyes become subsidiary to the ears. in darkness. SOUNDS USING SOUNDS TO STOP THE WORLD I began the exercise of listening to the sounds of the world and kept at it for two months. EG. a little late to just start learning how to shut off the internal dialogue) SR. . Everything is meaningful for a sorcerer. USING SOUNDS TO FIND OUT THINGS he said that the holes in the sounds were used by sorcerers to find out specific things.236. but with a combination of the auditory and visual senses. especially while one is suspended.listening to the sounds of the world has to be done harmoniously and with great patience. he listens to the sounds of the world. SR..219. The sounds have holes in them and so does everything around you.226. A warrior is aware of that and listens to the world. By the end of the two months I was capable of shutting off my internal dialogue for short periods of time and I was capable of paying attention to sounds. We have been using our eyes to judge the world since the time we were born.. SR.219.. SITTING IN A WOODEN CRATE. Our hearing takes the lead then. EG.

The smoke gives the necessary speed to grasp the fleeting movement of the world and at the same time it keeps the body and its strength intact.124. (the power plants helped CC) by stopping your view of the world.286 You gathered your second attention with power plants.236. That's also how one can go through things.. one never suffers from exhaustion. In this respect power plants have the same effect on the tonal as the right way of walking. One can talk and not notice it. Those plants lead the apprentice directly to the nagual. but power plants manage the shift on a greater and engulfing scale.75. Nothing to it..9. but it won't do any good. With the smoke . TOP.. SR. if you try to see the guardian without the aid of the smoke. and that's the shape that came out of your head. You could also see it (the guardian) without it (little smoke). because the body decay with stress. if they don't die.6 Only the smoke can give you the necessary speed to catch a glimpse of that fleeting world. SR. and the ally is an aspect of it. but it was still my face. the plants as being vehicles that would conduct or lead a man to certain impersonal forces or powers and the states they produced as being the meetings that a sorcerer had to have with those powers in order to gain control over them...132. Both flood it with information and force the internal dialogue to come to a stop. That's what the little smoke does.WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF HALLUCINOGENIC PLANTS? IT MOVES THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT . dreams make it move.249. but very costly.to shake my assemblage point and allow it to have a minimal margin of fluidity. There are scores of people who could do that. One may perhaps learn to apprehend that fleeting world by oneself. The effect of power plants on the AP is in principle very much like that of dreams. that's what happens to sorcerers when they are given power plants... A teacher then uses the diorienting effects of such a shift to reinforce the notion that the perception of the world is never final. Your movements would have been too slow. They knew by experience and by seeing that power plants shake the AP way out of its normal setting. SR.his urge to give me portions of hallucinogenic plants was but an effort. The little smoke removes the body and one is free. TAOD. SR.112. Seeing is not so simple and only the smoke can give you the speed you need to catch a glimpse of that fleeting world. or one can move thousands of miles and not notice that either. FFW.237. TOP.159. SR.. The nagual said that his power plants gathered the menacing side of your second attention in one clump.. the plants are excellent for that. It just happens that the little smoke makes one gaze like that. the power plants spin their second attention into that awful shape that comes out of their heads. You were gazing at my face and saw it shining. To survive in that world you need to be fast as lightning. SRP. SR. It's rather a fleeting world that moves and changes. I prefer the smoke because it is more effective and less dangerous to oneself.DJ said that he had used power plants at the beginning of my apprenticeship in accordance with a recommendation of the new seers. WHO ARE POWER PLANTS GIVEN TO? . chances are that you may delay in getting out of its way..

You could of used those four techniques to clean and reorder your island of the tonal. TOP.you're rather slow. The drawback in taking power plants had been the toll they took on my physical well-being and the impossibility of controlling their effect.you're plugged up and only the smoke can help you. they had made you cut through your attention of the tonal and had put you directly in the realm of the second attention. needed something else to shake us.. to make use of such a world. however . SRP.. SRP... the most impecaable attention was needed on the part of the sorcerer. Power plants had made you lopsided. actual visions or hallucinations of places and people I would be staring at as if they really existed. The world they plunged me into was unamenable and chaotic..235 POWER PLANTS WERE USED ONLY BY SORCERERS WHO HAD MASTERED THEIR ART.250. I could not help thinking that I was losing my mind. but without any mystery over that attention. They cause untold damage to the body. Those plants were such a powerful affair that in order to be properly handled. I lacked the control. SR.and there was no other way to jolt you. SRP.139. DESCRIPTION OF DISASSOCIATION I had told him many times before. (CC asks DJ why he gave him power plants) . that do not seem to need them.111.232.. very annoying lapses of mental concentration..10. power plants were given to us because the Nagual was putting a patch on our bodies. Power plants were used only by sorcerers who had mastered their art. TOP. FFW.but not all of us are capable of reacting to simple recommendations.with his power plants you learned to go very far into that other world. I went through states of total space and time discordance. TOP.but they would use them to get a final and total boost (to get into the other world) SRP.. SRP. Power plants are given only to empty people... There are other types of people. WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF POWER PLANTS? THE DRAWBACK IN TAKING POWER PLANTS HAD BEEN THE TOLL THEY TOOK ON MY PHYSICAL WELL-BEING AND THE IMPOSSIBILITY OF CONTROLLING THEIR EFFECT.. especially with the devil's weed.they would've led you to the nagual. .281.. It took a lifetime to train one's attention to the degree needed. This is their drawback. You and I for that matter.. the power.232..231.because your dumb.. that what made me think I was ill was a series of disruptive sensorial experience that I had had as after effects of ingesting hallucinogenic plants.236. complete people do not need power plants. we needed those power plants.POWER PLANTS ARE GIVEN ONLY TO EMPTY PEOPLE.

TDJ. parts of the description which I had been incapable of perceiving otherwise. go to him freely.my ally is the little smoke but that doesn't mean that my ally is in the smoking mixture or in the mushrooms or in my pipe. it was simply my lack of sensitivity which had fostered their use.. My insistence on holding on to my standard version of reality rendered me almost deaf and blind to DJ's aims.DID DON JUAN NEED TO SMOKE THE POWER PLANTS? HE HIMSELF (DJ) DID NOT NEED TO SMOKE ANYMORE. From then on you can summon your ally at will and make him do anything you want. They were not the essential feature of the sorcerers' description of the world.. I don't need to smoke anymore. TOP. WHY DID DON JUAN USE ANTHROPOMORPHIC QUALITIES WHEN DESCRIBING THE PLANT?

TDJ. it takes years alone to become aquainted with its two vital parts. And it performs its function without hurting in the least. And suddenly the world opens up anew! Unimaginable! When this happens the smoke has become one's ally and will resolve any question by allowing one to enter into inconceivable worlds. but also entails the attitude of the man after the experience.

The art of the teacher was to force his disciple to group his view of the world on the right half of the bubble.self-pity was useful to you because you either felt important important and deserving of better conditions. He then has the command of his totality.246 We can better explain this by saying that the task of the teacher is to wipe clean one half of the bubble and to reorder everything on the other half. can only cover a small area... That is the order that should prevail..245 SORCERER'S DO NOT OBLITERATE ANYTHING FROM THE TONAL BUT ALTERS THE USE ASSIGNED TO THOSE ELEMENTS the sorcerers' world called for a drastic transformation. to prepare the luminous being for the time when the benefactor opens the bubble from the outside.).244.with unthinkable but real situations which the apprentice cannot cope with.245 My task has been to disarrange your ordinary view. it robs us of our magical heritage and reduces us to nothing..245 The teacher's task is to rearrange the view. did not mean obliterating anything but altering the use assigned to those elements. although it is a most wonderful affair.with the warrior's way he forces him into reasonableness and sobriety.. the sorcerers explanation said that the island of the tonal was complete and not a single elment could be removed.

So let your eyes be free. One must shove at the precise instant. it will be there in the back in the same way that the idea of your impending death. Your self-pity is still a feature of your island. irresponsible and immortal. TOP. or your responsibility for your acts were there.. It is the tonal that has to relinquish control. one must know how to see.erasing personal history and its three companion techniques are the sorcerers means for changing the facade of the elements of the island.In other words. you have denied use to self-pity.The eyes can be the windows to peer into boredom or to peak into that infinity.153.235 there is no way to get rid of self-pity for good. without ever being used. had it remained the way it was.234..

IS CLEANING YOUR TONAL EASY? THE TONAL WOULD RATHER KILL ITSELF THAN RELINQUISH CONTROL What you were doing this morning was absurd.. WARRIORS KNOW WHEN TO SHRINK THE TONAL AND TO STOP IT A grave issue for a warrior is to know exactly when to allow his tonal to shrink and stop it.He told them that sorcerers were obligated to watch their tonals from a distance in order to have a better grasp of what was really around them...

No metaphor.. And this is not just a way of talking. One should get to the nagual without maligning the tonal and above all without injuring one's body..238 A SORCERER MUST TRY TO BREAK THE UNITY OF BEING ON THE TONAL WITHOUT ENDANGERING HIS BEING a sorcerer. In fact. I mean a real wind. has to break that unity. YOU SHOULD NOT LET THE TONAL SHRINK ITSELF OUT OF THE PICTURE ... or he would be swept away.173.he doesn't take unnecessary risks. and that opening must be shut tight immediately. A sorcerer's goal is to last.. TOP.. however.173. that is the wind that blows all living things on this earth TOP. Your reason is on safe ground. but without endangering his being. TOP.. he is on the windy side. TOP.. A wind that can blow one's life away.173. sneak off it. all the elements of the tonal are on its side. Beyond the gate of the tonal's eyes the wind rages.I know that what matters is not to learn a new description but to arrive at the totality of oneself. To make your reason feel safe is always the task of the teacher. therefore he spends years sweeping his island until a moment when he could in a manner of speaking..

That concentration is a form of consciousness that is not in the same category as the consciousness needed to deal with the daily world.a contradiction that cannot be rationalized but must be resolved in practice. the concentration needed to be aware that one is having a dream is the forerunner of the second attention. and yet the shift of the AP must obey the dreamer's command...

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DO DREAMING? EARLY MORNING OR LATE NIGHT BECAUSE OF INTERFERENCE BY PEOPLE DJ had told us that the late night or the early morning hours were by far the best. for even if one were alone in an isolated. EG. the interference of our fellow man is prevalent because the fixation of their first attention cannot be shut off.

FOR A WOMAN that the best position for a woman to start from is to sit with her legs crossed and then let the body fall. until one day when DJ told me that for the best results I should sit up on a soft thin mat.152. aiming at having my thighs completely flat against the mat.I had done it while lying on my back. In a woman both the attention and the energy for dreaming originate from the womb. my visions of the locale should be of nighttime.TRY DREAMING AS A NAP DURING THE DAYTIME TO TEST CONTROL he suggested that I should try dreaming while I took a nap during the daytime and find out if I could actually visualize the chosen place as it was at the time I was dreaming. since I had elastic hip joints.

.. I could arrange my perception. It takes a long time to perfect this technique... EG.change shape you must move your sight away from them and pick something else.. From the specific object you recall.112 The most serious problem the dreamer has in this respect is the unbending fixation of the second attention on detail that would be thoroughly undetected by the attention of everyday life. JTI. so in the beginning don't look at too many things. If they focus their dreaming attention on something specific.. one has to fight the inconcivable pull of the second attention and give only cursory glances at everything.after finding my hands he recommended that I should choose a locale...take quick. TRAVELING TO CERTAIN PLACES WHILE DREAMING TRAVELING TO CERTAIN PLACES OF YOUR OWN VOLITION The next step in setting up dreaming is to learn to travel. 112.. to go places.. After that. I could use the perceptual biases of my everyday life. or a park. ..52.go back to your starting point and start all over again. and then do daytime dreaming and find out if I could really go there. when you feel you can gaze at things indefinitely you will be ready for a new technique.30. in order to do two things..this technique is very difficult. if not completely familiar.. it is easier to travel in dreaming when one can focus on a place of power. . TAOD. He suggested that I should place someone I knew at the site. What one seeks in dreaming is not what one would pay attention to in everyday life. 30.142. JTI. You must perform two tasks.

If I took my dreaming for granted.when they (object in dreams).142..JTI.One only strives to immobilize the second attention only in the learning period.I realized that if I did not stare at things but only glanced at them. creating in this manner a nearly insurmountable obstacle to validation.. it is only as a point of departure. and then look at your hands again.. first to check subtle changes that might indicate that I was there in dreaming and second to isolate unobtrusive detail.. you must go back to your hands and then to another object and so on. the images don't shift. preferably a woman.153. TAOD. a friend's house-then.. focus my attention on it. one loses control.. every time you look at your hands you renew the power needed for dreaming. EG.. EG. EG. so the beginning don't look at too many things in your dreams. Pick a well-known spot-perhaps your scholl. focus your attention on any object there and find it in dreaming. In dreaming one has to be satisfied with the briefest possible views of everything. controllable.. JTI. Four items will suffice. You must will yourself to go to the specific locale. In order to help yourself you should pick a specific object that belongs to the place you want to go and focus your attention on it. JTI. After a few moments the scenery became. when you have mastered that technique. the same way you have learned to look at your hands you can will yourself to move.. From there. which would be precisely what my second attention would zero in on.. returning to the point of departure as many times as possible. deliberate glances at everything present in a dream. dreamers move on to look at other items in the dream's content.as soon as the images begin to shift.

A SORCERER HAS HIS WILL I go on living though because I have my will.. because that choice is the bent of my nature.I choose to live.argument could be logically stretched to saying that if things are supposed to be equal why not also choose death. my controlled folly applies only to myself and to the acts I perform while in the company of my fellow men. many men of knowledge do that (choose death). THE ACTS WHICH ARE NEVER CONTROLLED FOLLY: MEETING WITH THE ALLY the only acts in the life of a man of knowledge which are not controlled folly are those he performs with his ally or with mescalito. my ally and Mescalito are not on a par with us human beings.how can I go on living? It would be simple to die. they choose to die because it doesn't matter to them. that's what you say and believe. because I have tempered my will throughout my life until it's neat and wholesome and now it doesn't matter to me that nothing matters..

RECAPITULATION IS THE ACT OF CALLING BACK THE ENERGY (ENERGY FIBERS) WE HAVE USED IN PAST SITUATIONS TO BE USED TO MOVE THE ASSEMBLAGE POINT She explained that the act of the recapitulation is the act of calling back the energy we have already spent in past actions. This is what you've been doing for the past few months with your recapitulation. TSC.46 This phase (initial stages of sorcery training for a stalker) involves the cleansing of one's habitual ways of thinking. Recapitulating our lives and sweeping our past with the sweeping breath work as a unit. TSC. have to remember every feeling that they have had in their lives. one which all neophytes need to perform called the recapitulation.

Therefore. TSC. which are projected out of the luminous mass.the people who first devised the recapitulation lived hundreds. every situation of interaction. EG. there is no possibility of handling controlled folly because those foreign filaments are the basis of one's limitless capacity for self-importance. of years ago. propelled by emotions of any sort. The function of this breathing is to restore energy. EG. THOSE FOREIGN FILAMENTS ARE THE BASIS FOR OUR SELF-IMPORTANCE Unless stalkers have gone through the preliminaries in order to retrieve the filaments they have left in the world. She stressed that recapitulation is a magical act in which intent and the breath play indispensible roles. isn't recapitulating a kind of psychotherapy?. Breathing gathers energy and makes it circulate... By breathing from right to left while remembering a feeling. EG. WHAT IS THE KEY TO THE RECAPITULATION? BREATHING IS THE KEY TO GATHERING UP LOST ENERGY The key element in recapitulation was breathing.98. HOW DOES BREATHING GET BACK THE LOST ENERGY? DESCRIPTION OF HOW ENERGY FILAMENTS ARE REJECTED OR GAINED The luminous body is constantly creating cobweblike filaments. if not thousands.176.. TSC. places and events we are examining.98. including your dreams.288. not at all.. TSC. .289 The cleansing breath you do while recapitulating will eventually allow you to remember everything you have ever done.47... so you shouldn't think of this ancient renewing process in terms of modern psychoanalysis.. stalkers. it is then guided by the preestablished intent of the recapitulation which is to free ourselves from our biological and social ties..extend those stretchy fibers of energy across space and time to the persons.or every situation where feelings are involved is potentially draining to the luminous body. The result is that we can return to every moment of our lives and act as if we were actually there.. TSC.. and particulary in order to reject those that others have left in them.289 HOW OLD IS THE RECAPITULATION? THE RECAPITULATION IS A VERY OLD TECHNIQUE Although.

the assemblage point... recapitulation is the key to moving the AP..245. 150 THE RECAPITULATION MOVES YOUR ASSEMBLAGE POINT MINUTELY BUT STEADILY (GOING FROM ITS PRESENT SITE TO THE SITE IT WAS AT WHEN THE RECAPITULATED EVENT TOOK PLACE) .149. (it induces) a minute but steady displacement of the assemblage point. THE RECAPITULATION DEVELOPS OUR CONTACT WITH DIRECT KNOWLEDGE . to eject the foreign energy left in them during the interaction being recapitulated and the inhalation to pull back the energy that they themselves left behind during the interaction.. Sorcerers start by thinking.96. life-giving act and used it. TAOD. I began forming new ones..139. while exhaling permits us to expel foreign.46.. TSC. if only for an instant. TAOD. with it stalkers eject filaments left in them by other luminous bodies involved in the event being collected. TSC. accordingly. past links. I still an crazy..... The proof of it is that I'm here and I can't tell if I'm awake or dreaming.241.. and during the past months of intensive recapitulating. although I was painfully aware of them. POS 134 The reason I'm talking to you now is because by means of it (recapitulation) you have stored enough energy to break certain physical boundaries. the exhalation. There were dozen of things. the next immediate breath is from left to right and it is an exhalation. pick up filaments they left behind. .(sorcerers of antiquity) breathing as a magical. TAOD. they have successfully shifted their AP to the precise spot it was when the event took place. as a magical vehicle.My normal inventory is pretty weird. under the impact of reviewing past actions and feelings. when they can do that.. EG.through the magic of breathing. TSC... In fact. a seemingly independent force immediately plunged me into a most detailed memory of some event in my life. (to Emilito for instance) TSC.289 She said that this is a mysterious way of breathing and the key to the recapitulation. As I broke off old. goes back and forth between its present site and the site it occupied when the event being recapitulated took place..149 WHAT ARE THE RESULTS FROM THE RECAPITULATION? YOU CAN REMEMBER MINUTE DETAILS OF YOUR LIFE VIVIDLY WITHOUT FEAR OF EMOTIONAL INVOLVEMENT I could remember the minutest details of my life experiences without fear of any coarse emotional involvement.. TSC. inconceivable things that are not part of your normal inventory. by remembering the most important acts in their lives.traumatic events that stood out.more than (an intellectual psychoanalysis).whenever I silenced my mind. From merely thinking about them they then move on to actually being at the site of the event. You have perceived. I'm beginning to see from recapitulating the past that I was crazy. undesirable energy that has accumulated in us through interacting with our fellow men. because inhaling allows to pull back energy that we lost. . many of them had become even more poignant and vivid.

. But they also assured us that by means of the recapitulation.EG.. EG. we can deliberately turn the seer into a force that is both terious and effective.290 .EG. if such a surrogate be a perfect replica. TSC. after recapitulating their lives.287. losing selfimportance. Since awareness is the Eagle's food. The reason why stalkers must recapitulate their lives in such a thorough manner is that the Eagle's gift to man includes its willingness to accept a surrogate instead of genuine awareness. a force that will eventually guide us to freedom instead of killing us.. TAOD.. by giving it range.228. IT MAKES YOU LOSE THE HUMAN FORM FASTER Her benefactor thought that a profound recapitulation is the most expedient means to lose the human form. . such as erasing personal history. This is the reason why I always insist that you tell me what you find out through your recapitulation.. BREATHING REPAIRS OUR ETHEREAL NET Breathing works on both the physical and ethereal levels.thus it is easier for stalkers. TSC.. the dissolving force then lets sorcerers go. TSC. IT PREPARES OUR PHYSICAL BODY FOR THE EMERGING OF THE DOUBLE Clara prepared your physical side by teaching you to recapitulate.. TSC. the Eagle can be satisfied with a perfect recapitulation in place of consciousness. TSC. that the Eagle had accepted her recapitulation in place of her awareness and had let her go free. breaking routines and so forth. to make use of all the not-doings of the self.. free to expand their capacity to perceive and reach with it the confines of time and space. Florinda said that Soledad had been inside a recapitulation crate for five years.290 TO MAKE A FACSCIMILE OF OUR AWARENESS FOR THE EAGLE (the purpose of the recapitulation is to make a facsimile of our life experience for the food of the Eagle). TSC.292.134.112. we can allow the seer to grow and unfold as it was meant to do. you must bring the seer to the surface and give it the chance to speak and tell what it sees..99. EG.100.having had what it seeks. Now I needed to use that energy (from recapitulating) to strengthen my bond with the abstract force called the spirit. it repairs any damage in the ethereal net and keeps it strong and pliant. 149.99. my job is to help solidify your double and then teach it stalking.the purpose of the recapitulation is to grant the seer the freedom to see... and loosened you gates with the sorcery passes.

TSC.For example. the fact that for an instant. HOW LONG DO YOU RECAPITULATE? IT IS SOMETHING THAT NEVER ENDS BUT THE FIRST TIME IN ABSOLUTE SOLITUDE IT SHOULD TAKE EIGHT MONTHS Weeks went by.240 if after a month... TSC... which is at the core of all human interaction. TSC. She told me to keep my back erect and to concentrate on my breathing until it was soft and rhythmic. when our breathing is even. just before we plunge into any act. it gives us a moment's pause in which we can choose to accept our usual behavior or to change it by intending it away. our minds are still. EG. your mind becomes restless.. IT KEEPS YOUR INNER BEING IN BALANCE the way to (keep the inner being) in balance is the unique exercise: the recapitulation. you don't notice any increase in energy. or any improvement in how you feel toward yourself or . IT ALLOWS US TO ASSESS A SITUATION IN AN INSTANT BECAUSE THE RECAPITULATION CAN LET US SEE OUR LIVES WITHOUT DELUSION SO THAT WE CAN CHOOSE TO ACCEPT OUR USUAL BEHAVIOR OR TO CHANGE IT BEFORE IT ENTRAPS US. it's best to begin by quieting your breathing.62..99. she assured me that a deep and complete recapitulation enables us to be aware of what we want to change by allowing us to see our lives without delusion.BREATHING CALMS OUR MIND THUS GAINING MORE ENERGY The mind is like these shadows. we are capable of accurately assessing its outcome. This knowledge is never to our convenience or satisfaction. the mind quivers like stirred leaves. TSC. If it is erratic. TSC. if your breath is agitated. like that of an infant. TSC..289. to quiet the mind. TSC. our chances.69. I spent all my time recapitulating and practicing kung fu. a good way to calm ourselves is to regulate our breathing. Most of my time was devoted to recapitulating. then months. IT MAKES YOU LAUGH One of the results of a detailed recapitulation is genuine laughter upon coming face to face with the boring repetition of one's self-esteem. TSC. Since emotions are directly linked to the breath.41.. Clara explained that the recapitulation reveals to us a crucial facet of our being. before it fully entraps us..71.157. motives and expectations.71. so we immediately suppress it. we can train ourselves to absorb more energy by deliberately elongating each breath we take.

no matter how well we've done it once TAOD. I couldn't concentrate on it..she had to fulfill the task of recapitulating and for that she needed quiet and solitude. WHAT DO YOU NEED WHILE RECAPITULATING OR NEED TO DO? TO DO THE RECAPITULATION ONLY OUR NEED OR DESIRE IS NEEDED Each person performing it has to add his or her own intent to it.287. TSC. I even began to be more objective about experiences I had always considered to be taboo. TSC. YOU NEED SILENCE AND SOLITUDE WHEN RECAPITULATING she had to remain hiding in his house for years. Surprisingly.148 After more than eight months of faithfully practicing the recapitulation. 147. I also felt stronger and more optimistic. But after awhile...toward life in general..the recapitulation of our lives never ends. or I would simply rest or daydream.95... My mind would wander from what I considered to be one traumatic event to the next.57.57. I became intrigued with the clarity and detail that my recollections were acquiring.. TSC.. during those long days I worked in absolute solitude and silence. for I dreaded dredging up the past. Every day you sit for hours alone in a cave recapitulating your life away. .131 REACHING A STANDSTILL IN THE RECAPITUALTION I knew that the demands of the self were really outrageous. .... I became so involved in my recapitulation task that I didn't need a whole month to prove its worth. EG.57.56 Armed with the list. recapitulating was painstaking work. I went to the cave everyday. TSC. TSC. it was as if energy were oozing back into my body causing my muscles to become warm and to bulge. At first. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE THE RECAPITULATION LIST? IT TAKES WEEKS OF BRAIN RACKING WORK TO COMPILE THE LIST IN ABSOLUTE SILENCE AND SOLITUDE it took weeks of brain racking work to compile the list. You need absolute solitude to concentrate on your recapitulation. TSC. you be free to go back home. I told her (Clara) what bothered me the most was that I seemed to have reached a standstill in my recapitulation.. TSC.116.58.172. That takes courage. Sometimes as I breathed. TSC.. I was able to do it all day long without fretting or becoming distracted. but that intent is merely the desire or need to do the recapitulation.98.TSC.

Everything was more vivid and pronounced. . I hope you're using it properly. they impede the circulation of energy. DO NOT WEAR SHOES WHILE RECAPITULATING Clara had advised me to never wear shoes while recapitulating because. copper-colored leaves..241.. Emilito changed my schedule(living in the trees).91. the time I set aside for this particual task. and less charged with the self-pity. A SASH IS NEEDED TO SUPPORT YOU DURING THE RECAPITULATION AND TO KEEP YOU FROM FALLING IF YOU FALL ASLEEP handing me a bunch of dry. That way. TSC. LATE AFTERNOON IN A CRATE. especially in the late afternoons.. TSC.240.. the sash supports us while we recapitulate. you won't fall over and bang your head if you doze off or in case your double decides to wake up.DON'T TALK TO YOURSELF DURING RECAPITULATION If you talk to yourself (during the recapitulation). by constricting the feet.. I had recapitulated before. A CAVE OR A TREE The caretaker had instructed me to go over the same events and people. TSC. these leaves and this sash will buffer you from the woman's onslaughts (Nelida). fear or regret that had characterized my previous recapitulation..

This was the reason for the crate. he had given her the crate as a tool and a symbol. and theoretically could extend to the moment of birth. until all of her life had passed in front of her eyes.287.. she would break the crate to symbolize that she no longer abided by the limitations of her person.284. Her benefactor told her that whenever she had finished her recapitulation..288. EG.which starts systematically at a point that could be the moment prior to the stalker sitting in the crate.... Second stage: a more detailed recollection. difficult but not impossible. And it was a symbol of the narrow boundries of our person. The list . stalkers use crates or earth coffins in order to seal themselves while they are reliving. EG. EG. EG. it's a necessary part of the recapitulation.288 HOW DO YOU RECAPITULATE? TWO STAGES OF RECAPITULATING: FIRST A BRIEF RECOUNTING OF ALL INCIDENTS IN OUR LIVES THAT STAND OUT FOR EXAMINATION. every moment of their lives. EG..288 I should begin making a list of all the people I had met. SECOND A MORE DETAILED RECOLLECTION WHICH STARTS SYSTEMATICALLY FROM THE MOMENT THE STALKER STARTS AND GOES THEORETICALLY UNTIL BIRTH First stage: a brief recounting of all the incidents in our lives that in an obvious manner stand out for examination. MAKING THE LIST OF THE PEOPLE AND EVENTS YOU WILL RECOLLECT Make a list of all people you had met in your life.288 Write down a list of the events to be relived.THE RECAPITULATION CRATE building of..287 WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE CRATE? THE PURPOSE OF THE CRATE IS TO REDUCE THE AREA OF STIMULATION AROUND THE BODY Recollecting was easy if one could reduce the area of stimulation around the body. then breathing would foster deeper and deeper memories. EG. schools.287. more than merely recollecting. EG. for she would have to sit there for years. he put her inside the crate daily for at least six hours. starting from the present and going back to my earliest memories. starting at the present Areas: jobs.

GO THROUGH THE LIST WITHOUT DEVIATION Take the first person on your list and work your memory to recall everything you experienced with that person..288 .. all the promises I had ever made in my lifetime. the second is setting up the scene.47. that's why we must free those memories first. BE SILENT AND LET THE SPIRIT POINT THEM OUT Recapitulate different events of your life without any apparent order . TSC. She said that the important point is to re-experience the events and feelings in as much detail as possible and to touch them with the sweeping breath.150 I asked her if the order in which one recollects the past matters. For unless I deliberately retrieved my intent from them.288 RECALLING EVENTS ON THE LIST: TAKE THE FIRST EVENT ON THE LIST AND REMAIN WITH IT UNTIL ALL THE FEELINGS EXPENDED HAVE BEEN RECOUNTED The stalker then takes the event at the top of the list and remains with it until all the feelings expended in it have been recounted. from the first person on the list. especially the ones made in haste or ignorance or faulty judegement. from the last time you had dealings with that person to your first encounter.. that's where the bulk of our energy is caught.. She said that the initial stage of the recapitulation consists of two things.. thereby releasing one's trapped energy. it would never rise freely to be expressed in the present. TSC. RECAPITULATE ALL THE PROMISES EVER MADE IN YOUR LIFE She advised me to review. The first is the list. during the recapitulation.50.be silent and then get to the event the spirit points out. WE SHOULD START THE RECAPITULATION FOCUSING OUR ATTENTION ON OUR PAST SEXUAL ACTIVITY Clara explained that we must start the recapitulation by first focusing our attention on our past sexual activity.51 RECALLING THE PEOPLE ON THE LIST: TAKE THE FIRST PERSON ON THE LIST AND WORK YOUR MEMORY TO RECALL EVERYTHING YOU EXPERIENCED WITH THAT PERSON EITHER BACKWARDS OR FORWARDS.

Once you have all the elements in place. Your body will tell you when you've had enough. THE HEAD GOES BACK TO A RELAXED POSITION AND EXHALES LOOKING STRAIGHT AHEAD The procedure starts with an initial breath. to the examination of one's feelings. ONCE ALL THE ELEMENTS ARE IN PLACE USE THE SWEEPING BREATH AND BREATH IN THE SCENE Arranging means reconstructing the event. the movement of your head is like a fan that stirs everything in that scene..148 And setting up the scene consists of visualizing all the details pertinent to the events that one is going to recall.. TSC. starting by recollecting the physical details of the surroundings . Stalkers begin with their chin on the right shoulder and slowly inhale as they move their head over a hundred and eighty degree arc.. use the sweeping breath. then going to the person with whom one shared the interaction. THEN GO TO THE PERSON YOUR INTERACTING WITH AND THEN TO YOURSELF EXAMINING YOUR OWN FEELINGS. ... When the urn was full. I was to empty it from the top of the tree...had me write the names of people on dry leaves and then light a match to them after I had finished breathing in everything I had recollected about them. RECONSTRUCTING THE EVENTS/SETTING THE SCENE: START BY REMEMBERING THE PHYSICAL DETAILS OF THE SURROUNDING... TAOD.WRITING NAMES OF PEOPLE YOU ARE RECAPITULATING Clara had asked me to write on the ground the names of each person I had encountered in my life. TSC. Emilito . And don't stop until you have absorbed every last bit of energy you left behind.. was the final act in the process of breaking the ties with the world.241. letting the wind scatter the ashes in all directions.240. TSC.50. He instructed me to put the ashes from the leaves into a metal urn and the used matches into a paper sack. the ceiling. If you're remembering a room. he was careful never to touch the matches or the bag. I was to draw in the energy of the fire with my eyes. I was instructed to lower the pile of burnt matches in a paper bag on a seperate rope and Emilito. the people you see. for example breathe in the walls. the furniture.. disposing of the matches.. TSC. Description of the box. always being careful not to inhale the smoke. DOING THE SWEEPING BREATH/FANNING THE EVENT START WITH AN INITIAL BREATH WITH THEIR CHIN ON THEIR RIGHT SHOULDER AND SLOWLY INHALE AS THEY MOVE THEIR HEAD TO THEIR LEFT SHOULDER..240. TSC.

I moved my head repeatedly. And don't just turn your head with your neck muscles. and to intend to exhale the extraneous energy into you by others. TSC. intend to inhale energy that you left in the scene you're recapitulating. . TSC. EG. moving their heads from the right shoulder to the left. EG. That's more like it. when exhaling. they inhale slowly. doing one sweeping breath after the other until all my emotional turmoil was released.148 INHALE THROUGH THE NOSE AS YOU TURN YOUR HEAD TO THE LEFT AND EXHALE AS YOU TURN IT TO THE RIGHT..288 FANNING THE EVENT: LONG INHALATIONS LEFT TO RIGHT AND LONG EXHALATIONS FROM RIGHT TO LEFT This is coupled with a natural. I was to turn my head to the left and right in a single movement without breathing.50. They exhale looking straight ahead. EG.. the head goes back to a relaxed position.long exhalations are performed as the head moves gently and slowly from right to left. ( called fanning the event) TAOD.97. Guide it with the invisible energy lines from your midsection. THEN TURN YOUR HEAD TO THE LEFT AND TO THE RIGHT IN A SINGLE MOVEMENT WITHOUT BREATHING She firmly took my chin in her hands and instructed me to inhale through the nose as she turned my head to the left and then exhale as she turned it to the right. I exhaled all the embarassment and self-pity that had enveloped me.132 WHEN YOU WANT TO BREAK WITH THAT MOMENT DO THE SWEEPING MOTION BUT WITH NO BREATH Then I moved my head from right to left and back again without breathing. rhythmical breathing. thereby severing all ties with particular moment of my past. and long inhalations are taken as the head moves back from left to right. TSC. Enticing those lines to come out is one of the accomplishments of the recapitulation.288 The breath terminates on the left shoulder.288 Once the inhalations ends.288 As stalkers remember the feelings they invested in whatever it is that they are remembering.46 AS YOU INHALE THE SCENE.Remember. throw out all the thoughts and feelings you are reviewing.EG.

Next.97. breathing in the energy that was still hopelessly caught in the exhibition hall. TSC. As I brought my head back to the right again.

.47. he suggested I synchronize the rhythm of my breathing with the turning of my head. 9. I copied his movements inhaling and exhaling as completely as I could. WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF RECAPITULATION? YOU CAN BECOME TOO SELF-CENTERED/FILLED WITH SELF-PITY She also pointed out that for more than six months I had been doing nothing but focusing on incidents of my life. Although not very well at that.... try to feel some long stretchy fibers that extend out from your midsection. then align the turning motion of your head with the movement of these elusive fibers. he inhaled deeply as he gently turned his head to the left. breath like this.132. then back to the center.. Finally.BE SMOOTH WITH YOUR HEAD MOVEMENTS Your movements are too jerky.132 WHILE YOU RECAPITULATE YOU SHOULD BE FEELING FOR FIBERS THAT EXTEND OUT FROM YOUR MIDSECTION AND THEY SHOULD BE SYNCHRONIZED WITH YOUR BREATHING AND THE MOVEMENT OF YOUR HEAD she warned me that recapitulating is not an arbitrary or capricious exercise... TSC. When you recapitulate. TSC.153.Because of this overwhelming emphasis. full of outrageous demands.110. he moved his head from his right shoulder to the left and back to the right again without breathing. the self becomes distorted.. TSC. for all I had done was to reminisce nostalgically about my marvelous self or wallow in pity remembering my not-so-marvelous moments. But what hurt me most we when she told me that my months of recapitulating were meaningless. TSC. (gives her the gardening task) Most people only know how to care for themselves. SORCERY PASSES (TENSGRITY) WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE SORCERY PASSES? . so that together they would entice the invisible energy lines from my abdomen to extend outward into infinity. Caring for something outside of myself would prevent me from becoming more self-centered. they were nothing but shallow reveries.. TSC..

This is sorcery. were important because they operate directly on the reserve system. her hands seemed to penetrate deeply into the skin of her face. TSC. That's why we call these movements and breaths sorcery passes. threatening and yet at the same time a pleasure to watch. we certainly need a different intent if we are going to relax the muscles and tone the centers located there. TSC. nelida's passes were ominous. and kept stumbling because I desperately wanted to succeed. TO ALLEVIATE STRESS These are sorcery passes.. TSC. DESCRIPTION OF THE MOVEMENTS OF A SORCERY PASS I saw her repeat the movements she had shown me. lighter.125. It was like the time I had tried walking with my eyes shut. What is important is that energy is transmitted. TSC. thus fulfilling the intent established beforehand. It could be an organ in our body or an energy channel or even a thought or a memory. I knew it was because I was trying too hard to do the movements correctly. TSC. Whenever energy gathers. they were graceful and filled with internal strength. As we kept on moving. but it was different too. Therefore we have to release accumulated stress using the sorcery passes and their accompanying intent.after I finished the pass.SORCERY PASSES ARE DESIGNED TO GATHER ENERGY FOR A SPECIFIC PURPOSE.108. TSC. While she executed her pass. TSC. because it appears as if it had a sprung out of nowhere. I remembered what Clara had said about Nelida having no pity. Then when we are summoned to action. when your eyes are closed it's easier to use energy lines that are already there to keep your balance. Close your eyes. moving so rapidly that they seemed to disappear. the result is sheer magic. more than on any other part of our body. (they are called breathing passes) because the preset intent of these passes is to pass energy from the breath to the area where we place our attention. It requires an intent different from the intent of the daily world.. TSC. and that the reason they can be called indispensible passes is because they allow added energy to pass into and through pathways. at the other times. we become stronger and have surplus energy for extraordinary tasks.. Clara's sorcery passes were like martial art movements.. But gradually my desire to excel diminished and my body became more limber and subtle. This way of stroking was never in your inventory. movements of the hand that sre designed to gather energy for a specific purpose. smoother.106.105.109. as in the case of these sorcery passes we call it power.. (I had no trouble following her cues for changing positions. except that this time she was making her fingers and hands dance.185.109. I felt strong and bursting with energy. I recognized it to be a movement of the same nature as the ones Clara had shown me. as in the case of the recapitulation. they passed over lightly as if gliding on the skin's surface.185. I became so relaxed that I felt I had no more . Nelida's face was like a beautiful mask.185. Clara said that all our emotions leave traces on our face. Watching her exquisite movements mesmerized me..112 To complement the recapitualation I was taught a series of practices called sorcery passes involving movement and breathing.. TSC. Watching her exquisite movements done with utter aloofness and detachment. . yet I had difficulty). they radiated a nervous energy but they were not agitated.xiii With all the tension that rises to the face.

You wouldn't think of going without eating or drinking water. do them every day and you not only won't get tired or sick but you'll have plenty of surplus energy for your intending. I became aware that the light wasn't really inside me at all. TYPES OF PASSES . it seemed to change its glare depending on where I looked. TSC. They have to be practiced every day or else they're worthless.. TSC. TSC. I felt I had grown roots. the strangest thing yet happened.129. The light had the strangest hue. Lines were extending from the soles of my feet deep into the earth. And its intensity fluctuated depending on how hard I stared at it..125.. TSC. or like pale terra-cotta.129. would you? The exercises I've taught you are even more important than food or water. In places.. I felt a light turning on inside my forehead.114.112. If I raised my arms overhead. TSC. illuminating an outdoor stadium.. HOW OFTEN DO YOU DO THE PASSES? YOU MUST DO THEM DAILY What I'm going to show you first are simple movements that you must do daily. must be practiced daily until they cease to be massagelike movements and become what they really are: sorcery passes. for it seemed to change with every movement of my head. and what was around it.. TSC.bones or joints..130. I became so involved with the glow around me that I lost the rhythm of the breaths. and lowered my weight.. TSC.129.. it switched off again and I was left in total darkness.

Don't move your head. pinkish or peach. Then as suddenly as the light had turned on. giving me an unprecedented stability. TSC. With every pass I did. it seemed I could stretch them all the way to the tops of the trees. my body seemed to melt and merge with the darkness until it began to move and breath all by itself. I had no trouble seeing Clara and everything on the patio. I was trying to determine the coloration of the light. If I bent my knees.106. HOW LONG DO YOU DO THE PASSES? NEVER DO THE PASSES LONGER THAN A FEW MINUTES She warned me never to do any of the breathing passes she was about to show me for more than a few minutes at a time. Gradually the boundry between my body and its surroundings dissolved.just concentrate on your breathing.

You must add the other movements yourself as you go on living. which he develops throughout his life. A humble man. which is always ready.. PLACE TO DIE/TIME OF YOUR DEATH/DEATH DANCE Every warrior has a place to die. It is a sort of dance. A warrior dies the hard way. He either goes there by means of walking or by means of dreaming. And finally.To die with elation is a crappy way to die. a moment long enough to let him rejoice for the last time in recalling his power. We may say that that is a gesture which death has with those who have an impeccable spirit. his dance is magnificent. his spirit..153. a place where he has stored personal power. where powerful events left their mark.. the posture.

A warrior does not give himself to it. one day when his time on earth is up and he feels the tap of death on his left shoulder. can certainly hold his death for a moment. But regardless of whether his power is small or magnificent. IMMORTALITY THERE IS NO WAY TO ASPIRE TO IMMORTALITY AS LONG AS MAN HAS A COCOON. A warrior has an obligation to go back to that place of his predilection every time he taps power in order to store it there. They died only when they had to. not even his death. TOP.JTI.

POISONOUS PLANTS Poisonous plants are a pale yellow pink and medicinal plants are a bright violet pink. the easier for plants to break the barrier of perception.

CROWS SEEING LIKE A CROW I brought up the issue of the difference I had detected in the movement of light. one can also become a cricket. JTI. No light moves inside them. or to leap forward. they are tricksters. TDJ. As I have already told you. you could have asked that coyote about anything you wanted to know and it would have been compelled to give you an answer. but that is rather dangerous. it has little usefulness.

It can go safely into any place without attracting attention. or even an ant. and a crow can easily see when something is dead.It means a crow can tell actually what to avoid and what to seek.
