We are perceivers. The world that we perceive, though, is an illusion. It was created by a description that was told to us since the moment we were born. ~ Don Juan, Tales of Power
The world is composed of a massive amount of diversity of people, and of these, there are two classifications that may define them; sustainers and creators. We are, as don Juan said, perceivers, however, the majority of people are sustaining an illusion that was imparted upon them from the moment they were born. And since most people operate from a field of reason, they continue to assimilate the ideas and thoughts of others which ultimately puts them in a position of sustaining those ideas and thoughts. Those are the ideas and thoughts from which mythology, ritual and ideologies were born and are maintained.
Sustainers exemplify the patterns that they have gathered and assemble their truth by allowing the fixation of their assemblage points to represent their reality. Creators, on the other hand, will question the patterns that they maintain as well as the patterns maintained by others and this questioning greatly challenges the fixation of the assemblage point. This is why erasing personal history and recapitulation are so important to warriors. In their fluidity and willingness to become free from the patterns the warrior creator will shift their assemblage point which allows them to create their reality. The sustainer, however, will defend the fixated position of their assemblage point and will perpetuate the patterns in order to preserve and maintain the myths, many times unwittingly.
Creators are warriors who are bold enough to risk everything in order to create their reality instead of just embodying someone else’s. They operate from a point of energetic efficiency because when one walks the truth of their creation into the world there is little energy wasted or lost in the arena of doubt. If a warrior were to question an aspect of her creation then all she would need to do is recapitulate it and shift her assemblage point to restructure that aspect in order to align her creation within the context of her current state of perception. This is called living in the moment.
One will find that sustainers predominantly live in a state of doubt as a result of assembling their reality based upon the precepts of others. This self-doubt causes them to function in a mode that lacks integrity and, oftentimes, experience. Most sustainers can sense on a subconscious level that their “buy-in” to someone else’s vision lacks authenticity and vision because rather than creating their reality based on what they perceive they are merely attempting to embody an idea that was someone else’s creation and this is empty of their own authentic personal vision. They waste their energy defending the position of their assemblage point in an attempt to dutifully uphold a pattern that was created by someone else. Worse, they often impose those patterns upon others.
Toltec warriors are creators and they know that each moment unfolding presents new opportunities to create and recreate. What worked yesterday may not work today and since they know this they are not trapped within patterns. This allows them to be ephemeral and in a constant state of fluidity so that they may truly see the wonder, awe and beauty that constantly presents itself. Recapitulate the patterns! Allow your assemblage point to shift so that you can perceive energy directly which will allow you to assemble original and unique realities based upon what you see and what you perceive instead of maintaining the patterns and stories that were created by others. We each have the potential to assemble our worlds, to manifest our dreams and to create our realities free from the dominant patterns of the false web, the matrix. So what do you want to be, a sustainer or a creator?
