The grand task of seers is to bring forth the idea that, in order to evolve, man must first free his awareness from its bindings to the social order. Once awareness is free, intent will redirect it onto a new evolutionary path. ~ Don Juan, The Art of Dreaming
Once awareness is free, intent will redirect it onto a new evolutionary path. What does this mean for the warrior? To free awareness one must recapitulate, erase personal history and allow for the assemblage point (AP) to shift significantly. When the AP shifts the warrior is able to perceive in a different way, free from the impositions of a long line of stories that had been conveyed as the right or only way to live for a very long time. Think about it. If you ever watch any history shows you will recognize the patterns that have been maintained and perpetuated from generation to generation.
Once awareness is free… no longer bound to the social order, you are free to perceive energy directly. Perceiving energy directly becomes different when you no longer attempt to define, label and compare every single experience as it unfolds. This act of perceiving is alignment with intent, to be in the ultimate flow of knowing that things are the way they are for a reason that lies beyond our ability to attempt to control or change it. This is not to say that warriors should not take responsibility for their actions; what it means is that we can only be observers, witnesses to an indescribable force (intent) that is much greater than ourselves while living with integrity and being impeccable.
Animals in the wild are aligned with intent. They roam, they play, they hunt, they eat, they mate and birth, they run, they sleep, they die. They pay attention to the forces of nature, the seasons, the energy that surrounds them and they don’t try to control or change anything. They are in the flow as not only witnesses to the mystery but as part of the mystery themselves.
Once awareness is free, intent will direct it… because when a warrior is aligned with intent, truly aligned, the warrior, like the animal that we are within the realm of earthly beings, will flow like a river to the sea, aligned with the current of that flow. It is when we fight against the current that we become unbalanced and deranged. In the movie Avatar, Mo’at, Neytiri’s mother said to Jake Sully, We have tried to teach other Sky People… It is hard to fill a cup which is already full. Learn well, Jakesully, then we will see if your insanity can be cured. Empty the cup, recapitulate, surrender, release the insanity. It is then, and only then, that intent will direct your awareness.
Once awareness is free, intent will direct it onto a new evolutionary path. When we recapitulate the stories of the social order, when we align with intent, our awareness will be free, flowing with the current and bringing us out of the patterns and into a new evolutionary path of awareness and perception. This will ultimately allow us to come to recognize the human potential that exists within us all but has been subverted by an unwitting agreement that we made to the social order.
The sorcerers’ revolution is that they refuse to honor agreements in which they did not participate. Nobody ever asked me if I would consent to be eaten by beings of a different kind of awareness. My parents just brought me into this world to be food, like themselves, and that’s the end of the story. – Don Juan, The Active Side of Infinity
Our evolution has been challenged on so many levels and warriors are connecting once again to the deep awareness that they are gleaning from silent knowledge. We must look deeply into the abyss, in silence, in order to reconnect to our true human lineage. The goal: total freedom, the evolution of awareness which enables us to travel through the ocean of cosmic energy, perceiving all that is accessible to us. What we choose to experience is to satisfy our own need to know and to evolve. As warriors our commitment to evolve is to ourselves, not to another.
Evolution is possible when we have personal power. As La Gorda said in The Eagle’s Gift, “…there are no steps to anything a warrior does. There is only personal power.” Recapitulate and…
