The womb is the way female animals sense things and regulate their bodies. Through the womb, women can generate and store power in their doubles to build or destroy; or to become one with everything around them. ~ Nelida, The Sorcerer’s Crossing by Taisha Abelar
This is true. When we sit in the breath with intention and open our wombs to receive the life flow energy we become one with everything around us with so much fluidity we can no longer discern any separation. According to sorcerers, the womb makes it easy for women to enter into exotic areas of awareness. This makes perfect sense since the womb is a creative universe unto itself. In an interview, one of the witches said, “Sorcerers maintain that, due to the presence of the womb inside the body, women have the facility to displace the assemblage point to a new position.”
If we were able to transcend interpretation and face pure perception without prejudice, the impression of a world of objects would vanish. In its place, we would witness energy as it flows in the universe. Under such conditions, the chain of other people’s thoughts would no longer have the smallest effect on us and we would not feel obliged to be or do anything. Then our senses would have no limits. That’s seeing. ~ Carlos Castaneda
So what are we waiting for? If the cause of all human suffering is bound to a world of objects, and it is, then let’s get our collective ass in gear and perceive energy directly! Oh wait, hold the phone, we can’t do that can we. Well we can and some of us are. And what I have come to find is that those of us who are happen to be considered muy loca.
You are the sea of eternal awareness lapping on the shores of time. You are the way universal energies interface with a geographical world. You are the being of life touching a temporal domain, interpreting a matter world through a filter of humanity. As a human being you objectify the relationship between local spirit and local matter, projecting a body to assist you in becoming a lens through which universal consciousness can view localities of ever-unfolding dimension. You are a wave of eternity splashing upon this temporal shore, the Star Maker awakening beneath a sensuous film of water and biologically textured clay. You are a single field of awareness containing multitudes of constituent beings, each of whom individualizes certain of your qualities, aspects and interests.
Any movement of the assemblage point means a movement away from excessive concern with the individual self. Shamans believe it is the position of the assemblage point which makes modern man a homicidal egotist; a being totally involved with his self-image. Having lost hope of ever returning to the source of everything, the average man seeks solace in his selfishness. ~ Don Juan, The Power of Silence
It is the assemblage point where reality is constructed. The assemblage point is not as complex as Castaneda had made it out to be. You don’t need to find a nagual, or take loads of entheogens, or have a near death experience in order to move the assemblage point from its fixated position. Although these are methods that can assist, all you really have to do is have enough energy to move it on your own through the use of a strong will and unbending intention.
The ancients started with an understanding that we are transitory, but they allowed themselves to become corrupted by seductive ideas of survival. As a result, they were filled with self-importance and lapsed into exclusivity. The new seers discontinued all that by giving the fluidity of the assemblage point first priority. They had observed that, as soon as that point moves, the idea of secrecy changes into idiocy, because in the realm of energy there are no rigid limits between conscious beings. In consequence, what became most important for them was to get rid of all speculation and emphasize the practical side of the path. ~ Carlos Castaneda, Encounters with the Nagual
The exclusivity of the sorcerers’ party in the Castaneda paradigm basically became their demise as they attempted to remain in isolated separation from the rest of the world. They diligently worked at honing their skills towards connecting more deeply with intent and silent knowledge for their goal of ultimate freedom but guarded it intensely as though they had been carefully chosen to be the sole warriors of awareness from a long lineage that preceded them. They lived within a concept that they called “the Rule” and were dedicated to a tradition of people of knowledge that stretched back thousands of years, however, they were extremely private and believed that everything outside of the strict adherence to the teachings was a waste of time. And then when Carlos left this world his party disappeared completely!
