Recapitulating Knowledge

There are lots of things that you do now which would have seemed insane to you ten years ago. Those things themselves did not change, but your idea of yourself changed; what was impossible before is perfectly possible now and perhaps your total success in changing yourself is only a matter of time. In this affair the only possible course that a warrior has is to act consistently and without reservations. You know enough of the warrior’s way to act accordingly, but your old habits and routines stand in your way. Everything we do, everything we are, rests on our personal power. ~ Don Juan, Tales of Power

Personal power is what we gain through recapitulating. A couple of years ago I posted an article called Freedom through Recapitulation that had to do with recapitulating the personal. After we recapitulate those stories we begin to move into fluidity where we live in the moment and thus, we recapitulate in the moment. Holding on to nothing, we are free; mindful of the things that could potentially back us up and so, we let them go.

But, as warriors there is more to recapitulate than the personal. We have to recapitulate our knowledge of everything we have discovered, everything we know. This includes the stories that others have created which have become patterns anchored in things like religion, politics, health issues, food issues, environment; even our belief structures as recently posted in Apocalypto – 2012 by a fellow warrior. Suffice it to say, we have to recapitulate everything and that’s why I so often say recapitulate and when you are done, recapitulate some more!

There are so many layers, most of which we don’t identify with personally, that affect the freedom of a warrior and they have to be released too, in fact, it takes so much personal power to do it that it has become the ultimate task for the warrior. I don’t know why Carlos never talked about this because it seems as though he and his party would have engaged in recapitulating at this level but perhaps it is because they had so much energy invested in transforming and releasing the stories and patterns of the old seers to ensure the evolution of this lineage that they just never got around to it.

We are conceived within a pattern, born into patterns, taught patterns from so many directions and then expected to maintain the patterns. Failure to do so has many consequences; however, maintaining the patterns is ultimately more destructive than breaking free of them. Patterns are maintained by consistently giving energy to a system of power. It only has power because of the fact that so many people maintain it. How do we diffuse the power of a system that is outdated? We stop feeding it and then we recapitulate it.

With this in mind, let’s stop the world. By so doing we can collectively see and then break the patterns that keep us prisoners to the stories of the patterns. This will liberate the earth and her inhabitants from a story of false power that is preventing the purity of the lineage from transforming, changing, evolving.

We are beings who are going to die. There is no more time for what we used to do. Now you must employ all the not-doing I have taught you and stop the world. People tell us from the time we are born that the world is such and such and so and so, and naturally we have no choice but to see the world the way people have been telling us it. Seeing happens only when one sneaks between the worlds. ~ Don Juan, Journey to Ixtlan

  1. “There are so many layers, most of which we don’t identify with personally…”

    Yes, very true. The content of recapitulation at times can be seen as a seemingly endless warehouse of (sometimes bizarre) non-personal content that nevertheless must be cleaned out. It includes issues such as “the human condition,” the human form, and the propensity to associate oneself with other beings, the enigma of unity through separation. And then the separation through unity (the age-old bilateral way of looking at things).

    All are extended forms of repetition and useless pattern, which serve to “flatten” us out (as mentioned in the Apocalypto – 2012 posting).

    Wipe it clean, move on. And then wipe clean again. Cycles ending cycles. Even then, the end of cycles…

  2. Far better than recapitulation, is to talk to those who took the power from you. Having dreamed with don Juan, I believe it is/was one of the biggest errors of his line of naguals and allowed the Conquistidors to continue the subjugation of the Native Heart. (Consider: now they’re operating gambling casinos on reservations — see New Mexico, for example).

    • For some this is true. For others it may be better to just reclaim the energy and release the “story”. As for recapitulating knowledge we often don’t have “access” to the creators of age-old patterns.

  3. Clarification on recapitulation. Recapitulation is not done solely to recover energy from someone “taking” power from you. Every act we have ever engaged in needs to be recapitulated. This can be good things, bad things, fun things, walks in the forest, work experiences, dinner parties, etc. It boils down to reclaiming expended energy, ALL of it. Some people use the word recapitulation combined with “healing” modalities as a means of reclaiming the power that they had lost to others or that had been “taken” from them but for the sorcerer, recapitulation is a restoration of the total energetic essence of which we were born with.

  4. recapituòate knowledge.
    Yes
    it comes a time where one has to shift from the recapitulation of purely “negative” experiences to the recapitulation of the “positive” ones… which often are even more charged up
    keep recapitulating

    • If we don’t recapitulate knowledge or what we think we know then we are only continuing to uphold and repeat the patterns. This prevents us from seeing and perceiving energy directly.

  5. There is a reason for not recapping culture and patterns of belief….. we don’t have the ability. But we can recap personal history and acquire the power to shift. This shifting detaches the tonal anchors (beliefs and culture) when enough shifts have occurred. One saturates the tonal with the Nahual, filling the empty space and leaving no opportunity for the flier to re-enter.

    “With this in mind, let’s stop the world. By so doing we can collectively see and then break the patterns that keep us prisoners to the stories of the patterns. This will liberate the earth and her inhabitants from a story of false power that is preventing the purity of the lineage from transforming, changing, evolving.”

    The Earth is already free (relative to our concept of freedom). When we learn to SEE, we join the collective universe of beings and energies. It is always one person at a time. The patterns and cultural beliefs that block us are symptoms of the duality that is the tonal. It surrounds the Great Sea. We are here to conquer it, moment by moment,… piece by piece,… and expand the Nahual. We are probes of infinity.

    • Seeing what you are saying here, it makes sense that we must recapitulate personal history which ties us to the beliefs and culture a monological story of conflict and salvation based in fear. As we gather more and more personal power we recapitulate ever deeper the engrams that are culture and belief to include those that have nothing to do with the personal. Through seeing we eliminate the mold of man that demands constant attention just by being in the world.

      While seeing that the earth is a being hosting us, it seems that she, it, is not free when the host which she is so generously housing is consuming all life base on the monological story of culture and belief. So the earth is not really free, though she may be freeing herself as she shifts geologically to respond to the host’s illness.

      Yes, let’s probe infinity for better awareness and be responsible for the way we work with energy while here for our brief stay.

      • Just a couple of responses to your post aruntabear-

        “Seeing what you are saying here, it makes sense that we must recapitulate personal history which ties us to the beliefs and culture a mono-logical story of conflict and salvation based in fear.”

        The personal histories we recap are the many events that we have allowed to siphon off our energy. These events are triggers that bleed us over and over. These triggers/events/energetic infections are not the anchors that lock one within the consensual band. Those anchors are more deeply seated; belief in natural laws, definitions of living organisms, reliance on senses (or devices that mimic and amplify sensory perception), dependency on form, and so on.

        These limiting concepts can be released via the process of entering higher attentions. This is the necessary means, because our inventory does not reach beyond the tonal and recapping will not encompass them. For example, while I can say that there is no need for water, food, sunlight, moderate temperatures and sensory identification for life to exist…. one won’t grasp that without the experience. A mental realization is not knowledge. It is continuous higher experience which saturates the tonal being and forces the flier out.

        “As we gather more and more personal power we recapitulate ever deeper the engrams that are culture and belief to include those that have nothing to do with the personal. Through seeing we eliminate the mold of man that demands constant attention just by being in the world.”

        True, but even those impersonal beliefs are only mental concepts and epiphanies. Short-lived and easily forced out by the flier mind. If you can grasp a concept, it is tonally based. Right now, your flier mind is seeking ways to encompass higher concepts so it can remain in charge. We cannot use the mind to get beyond the mind. Thus as always, I say learn to shift!

        “While seeing that the earth is a being hosting us, it seems that she, it, is not free when the SPECIES which she is so generously housing is consuming all life base on the mono-logical story of culture and belief. So the earth is not really free, though she may be freeing herself as she shifts geologically to respond to the host’s illness.”

        This idea, while popular is misconceived. We ARE consuming a lot of life AS WE KNOW LIFE, but that idea is the product of our miniscule tonal perception. She is a stupendous being with such a vast field of energy and perception that our own is nearly non-existent in this form, relatively speaking. It is the flier that applies the tonal conceptual matrices to the infinite. We continually attempt to carry our folly into the Nahual! As probes, we are probing from the Nahual into these peripheral dual realms. We are “Infinite Probes”! We are not probing the higher worlds from our tonal fixation; its the other way around. Inside out, inside out, inside out.

      • I believe it is our responsibility to free mother earth by assisting in the shift of her assemblage point. She has one too and it has long been fixated as a result of the stories that are maintained by humanity.

  6. “endless dreaming possibilities…….”
    “”Dream your intent of me.
    Intend me forward.” Perhaps, the earth is asking us, as the death defier asked Carlos to dream her forward. Should the new bands of awareness achieve freedom, so shall the earth.

  7. Its always appreciated to share this. I personally feel the needing of “finding new evolution path” using our creativity, meanwhile together keep on recapitulate, save energy,rise awarness,load internal silence…but if we dont use our limitless creativity (of course in unknown new mode for a common Intent), the evolution path continue to be blocked. We are already in a totally new step forward CC and that previous step of warriors. That is not my personal idea, but it was the Spirit (the Eagle,call it as you want)has changed everything,and maybe we already didnt realize it very well.
    Anyway i repeat,its a pleasure to read this ,it always brings me something to take in mind.Thanks

  8. Saludos de Sonora, Mexico. Aqui estoy ahorra mismo mirando la Vía Láctea. Esta muy bonita. Por lo general no hay internet aquí pero ahora hay! Dulces sueños guerreros compañeros!!!! Y baila para siempre!

  9. FemaleWarrior-
    What experience leads you to this conclusion?

    “I believe it is our responsibility to free mother earth by assisting in the shift of her assemblage point. She has one too and it has long been fixated as a result of the stories that are maintained by humanity.”

    Its true that we are part of her and she is part of us. Of course that is also true of the millions of life forms she hosts and many are greater than humans! I would suggest that the best we can do for the Earth is to become free. Efficient and impeccable living is a natural result of becoming free. Additionally, freedom also results is respecting others freedom and not ‘saving’ other entities…

    When one is absorbed and encompassed within the nahual, one no longer considers responsibilities toward entities. One no longer perceives other entities. One no longer perceives. One is no longer. One is. One.

    The Star-trekian save-the-world concepts are the misplaced self serving works of the flier mind. The real battle is the struggle a warrior engages for awareness. It is a battle that the warrior must fight moment to moment. If said warrior is not awake and engaged fully at death, said warrior is consumed. If said warrior DOES survive consumption, THEN said warrior assumes responsibilities beyond the survival of the individual.

    Will the nahual use open vessels? Of course, but the nahual can only use an empty vessel. A vessel without agendas, intentions, and preconceptions.

    • Hi Jaggg,
      My experience leading to this conclusion will take too much time to write and I actually want to save it for my book. I have come to know that the Earth loves us, her own creation so much, even at the exclusion of herself. I am not trying to save her or any other living thing upon her but her incredible beauty, balance, poise and heartbeat itself so compliments this galaxy it would be a shame to see her destroyed by the predator mind that lives so fully within man. The immense awareness that she herself holds and makes so readily available is no different than that of the impeccable warrior who walks it into the world while continuously striving towards total freedom. I love this incredible Mother earth and would like to know that she is able to persevere as a healthy planet, the sentient being that I have come to know her to be. To not have her presence drifting through the cosmos would surely be devastating to many planetary systems.

      I appreciate your responses, as always, and everything you say does make perfect sense to me. I do completely understand what you are explaining here. I no longer question my deep love and extreme gratitude for this Earth and in spite of these feelings, I have no attachment to her. Thanks for the continual dance.

  10. “This question is one that only a very old man asks. My benefactor told me about it once when I was young, and my blood was too vigorous for me to understand it. Now I do understand it. I will tell you what it is: Does this path have a heart?

    All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. They are paths going through the bush, or into the bush. In my own life I could say I have traversed long, long paths, but I am not anywhere. My benefactor’s question has meaning now. Does this path have a heart?

    If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t.”

    Do what works.
