They (sorcerers) don’t look for definitions, but for results. If a practice is able to elevate our level of awareness, what does it matter how we explain it to ourselves! The means by which we will start acting to save and increase our energy are not important, because once we are in possession of our totality, we enter a new field of attention where we don’t care about concepts anymore, and things demonstrate themselves. ~ Carlos Castaneda, Encounters with the Nagual
When we can perceive from the perspective of “double vision” we are able to flow effortlessly among the various states of awareness, no longer clinging to this or that or the words that define them, i.e. tonal, nagual, 1st, 2nd or 3rd attention, stalking, dreaming, etc. The ability to have “double vision” allows us to merge multiple points of reference from which a new point of reference emerges. We align with intent and through that alignment we have no choice but to see things as they constantly unfold and then to participate in that creation or simply be a witness to it. From here we can, indeed, begin to navigate from a state of pure perception.
Since it is there and we can see it, experience it and work to avoid it, I can continue to talk about the predator, the false matrix, the dominant paradigm etc., etc. but to do so is simply repeating a pattern. My goal is to completely move beyond the world of repetitive patterns and since we have become fully aware of the energy that we refer to as the predator, the foreign installation and we are seeing it or open to it (sensing, feeling, intuiting, knowing) we no longer need to discuss it.
The warrior knows that he lives in a predatorial universe. He can never let his guard down. Wherever he looks, he sees an incessant fight, and he knows that it deserves his respect, because it is a fight to the death. Don Juan was always moving, coming or going, supporting this or rejecting that, provoking tensions or discharging them in a burst, shouting his intent or remaining silent; doing something. He was alive, and his life reflected the ebb and flow of the universe. ~ Carlos Castaneda, Encounters with the Nagual
Since many of us have recapitulated the stories and patterns of the foreign installation and are choosing to reside more fully in the moment we are amassing personal power and becoming impeccable with our energy. I can understand how some may think that we’ve reached the goal, I can understand how some people don’t believe there is a goal and due to the wondrous nature of each beautiful moment I can understand why some may decide that further work towards total freedom may seem pointless and that we are chasing after our tails.
What I see is that we are indeed entering uncharted territory and we are assisting each other in this whether we think we are or not. I’m reluctant to say that what we are embarking on is the creation of a new paradigm and yet, a paradigmatic shift is exactly what must occur in order to remove ourselves from the slavery of what has become an innately repetitive meme that holds humanity prisoner to the foreign installation. Since paradigms typically embody concepts, models, structure and consensual agreement, even a new one will, in time, become a pattern.
Since I’m not trying to save humanity or the planet, I’m not really fond of the idea of creating a paradigmatic shift, it would take too much energy. I’m just trying to continue to deepen and hone my awareness and to keep dancing along the lines of awareness. This shift or new band, for seers, is not comprised of a “plan”. It does not have structure. I have come to find that the only thing we can do is align with intent. Period. It takes work, it takes discipline, it takes an extreme measure of mindfulness, diligence and awareness. And then, when we give ourselves over to the unfathomable sea of awareness in total fluidity I trust that the shift will simply emerge in the form of new lines, new energetic fibers and new possibilities. And I look forward to seeing and experiencing what that will be like. In fact, I already am. The new band of awareness already exists, all we need to do is align with intent and we are there. There are no words, it just is.
