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.
