The old seers saw that the earth has a cocoon. They saw that there is a ball encasing the earth, a luminous cocoon that entraps the Eagle’s emanations. The earth is a gigantic sentient being subjected to the same forces we are. ~ don Juan, The Fire from Within
Everything has a luminous cocoon, emanations of energy that seek to align with the familiar patterns of our daily lives ultimately settling into the customary position of the assemblage point. As warriors of awareness, we strive to keep our assemblage point fluid in order to avoid repeating the patterns that a fixated assemblage point maintains.
Routine is a comfort to most people whereas a state of flux is often dreaded and feared. Routine ensures that everything remains status quo and predictable and offers one the opportunity to remain in control or at least, feel as though they have some control over their lives. This has been my challenge for the past nine months, relinquishing control in order to completely loosen my assemblage point from the position of what is familiar and instead, move into a state of perceiving energy directly while completely aligned with the sea of awareness. This is one of the most difficult and arduous things I have ever done on my path as a warrior and I am constantly kept on notice to not fall back into the safety net of predictability, comfort and control.
A sorcerer asks himself: What is the sense of all this? Why invest my resources in something which won’t help me at all? The appointment of a sorcerer is with the unknown, he cannot commit his energy to nonsense. While you walk the Earth, collect something of true value from it, otherwise it wasn’t worth it. ~ Carlos Castaneda, Encounters with the Nagual
This past weekend was spent in communion with the earth; deep, heartfelt, intended unity. The earth is very abstract, abysmal, unfathomable and capable of escorting one into silent knowledge on a level that varies greatly from the silent knowledge that can be accessed by going up and out into the cosmic void of infinity. She is profoundly grounding and wise in the ways that allow you to fully grasp what it means to be in the world but not of it.
The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it. ~ Morpheus, The Matrix
What is the Machine? It’s the US government, the federal reserve, religion; an illusory perception of monolithic proportion that needs to be destroyed. The Machine is a gigantic predator, or inorganic being, that is sucking the life force out of humans in order for it to grow and thrive. It is so effective that it has an enormous population caring for it, feeding it and sustaining it. If we don’t take the necessary actions to eliminate it, it will align itself with the governments of other countries to become one of the biggest inorganic beings that has ever existed.
The sorcerers of ancient Mexico saw the predator. They called it the flyer because it leaps through the air. It is not a pretty sight. It is a big shadow, impenetrably dark, a black shadow that jumps through the air. Then, it lands flat on the ground. The sorcerers of ancient Mexico reasoned that man must have been a complete being at one point, with stupendous insights, feats of awareness that are mythological legends nowadays. And then everything seems to disappear, and we have now a sedated man. ~ Don Juan, The Active Side of Infinity
Carlos and don Juan discuss a predator that exists in the depths of the cosmos and rules the lives of humans, holding them as their prisoners. Though the word predator would not necessarily be my word of choice to describe this particular energy, we’ll use it for the time being to remain consistent with the label keeping in mind that it energetically infuses humans with the foreign installation.
This predator not only feeds off of human awareness; it also manipulates humans. Don Juan said that there are a lot of outside forces controlling people in every moment and that this control is something that exists outside of the domain of language because these experiences lie so far beyond syntax.
The task which my teacher gave me, and my mission as a nagual for the era which is commencing, is to move the assemblage point of the Earth. Just like the other world has its mobile unit– the inorganic beings– Earth also has one, and it’s us. We are children of the Earth. The movement of the assemblage point of a sufficient number of warriors can change the modality of the time, and that is what I am working towards. We are children of the Earth, it is our ultimate source. The option of sorcerers is to unite with the awareness of the Earth, for as long as the Earth will live. ~ Carlos Castaneda, Encounters With The Nagual
Shaman, medicine people, seers and spiritualists of long ago and to this day hold the awareness that we are all connected in the intricate, elaborate and delicate web of life in spite of the fact that so many people believe that we are separate and that we are born alone, live alone and die alone. Many have lost the connection of oneness and no longer or refuse to perceive the fact that everyone and everything on this Earth is a necessary piece of the whole.
