Every one of us human beings has two minds. One is totally ours, and it is like a faint voice that always brings us order, directness, purpose, the other mind is a foreign installation. It brings us conflict, self-assertion, doubts, hopelessness: it’s ourselves as the me-me center of the world. ~ Don Juan, The Active Side of Infinity
Not much has been said with regard to female warriors throughout the Castaneda books. Taisha Abelar and Florinda Donner wrote books in order to offer a female perspective of female sorcerers though the teachings that they had received from some of the elder women in don Juan’s party. Most of their writings were an attempt to guide women into becoming free from a male-dominated, patriarchal world which they believed held them captive and perpetuated an energy of being preyed upon and to exist in a role of subservience. Little was said about the power of the feminine energy that has the potential to dream a new dream here on earth, while systematically destroying the ancient lines that support and maintain this current paradigm, particularly by those women who are committed to the warrior’s path.
Feminine energy is raw power, a graceful dance of beauty upon the earth and through the cosmos. One of the things that separate a female warrior from male warriors is her ability to connect to dozens of lines of awareness if she is willing to sit within silence. While men typically grab onto a single line and follow it to its end with precision accuracy and incredibly focused intent, women can effortlessly travel along multiple lines while holding each point of awareness congruently which enables them to take in much broader perceptual awareness at once. This in turn allows her to fit the pieces of the puzzle of humanity together effortlessly amidst the chaotic stories that have been told upon this earth for thousands of years.
This type of seeing allows women to understand how the energetic lines became entangled and intertwined by so many stories and she can, from a place of silence, dance within them all, unravel them, recapitulate them and move ever so gracefully into freedom from them. My endeavor into freedom unfolds with a male warrior who is very balanced and sometimes I will come across a line (story) that was created by a man, perhaps thousands of years ago, that I don’t understand. He will then “ride” that line back to its inception with a focused intent that burns into the moment it was created and bring back the point in which it was created with clarity and precision. This awareness allows us to do what we call “looping it back” in order to un-write it from the fabric of our existence and together we can energetically disentangle it from other stories/belief structures that were created on that line from that particular point in time.
Every point in time, every word, every action has the ability to influence a progression that can be both beneficial and detrimental. When warriors of freedom have recapitulated their personal stories and have become fluid enough to recapitulate in the moment, or better still, not lose energy to the stories or demands of others, they then move into a second-attentional realm as a result of the massive amounts of personal energy they have come into through the disciplined practice of recapitulation. From here, in second attention, the stories of the earth begin to reveal themselves and a warrior finds herself recapitulating the stories that belong to earth, or rather, the stories that were created by others which had not been recapitulated and the multitudes of lines from which other stories were born.
The female warriors engage in a beautiful dance that I call destroying the man-made matrix, with knowledge and awareness, mindful of the power held by inorganic beings in their attempts to instill their mindset upon humanity. Sometimes working with other female or male warriors they travel through the matrix to witness and unravel the lines which consist of all things that do not serve the earth or her beings but instead were put into place by the foreign installation as a means to control and amass power.
Female warriors dance amongst a myriad of stories within stories with detachment, ruthlessness, patience, ease and joy as they meticulously cut through to the core of what it means to live in beauty aligned with the earth, the cosmos and a harmonic frequency of existence within the fragile yet incredibly strong web of all creation. Herein lies total freedom.
Impermanent are all created things; strive on with awareness. ~ Buddha’s last words
