I mean that when man’s assemblage point moves beyond a crucial limit, the results are always the same for every man. The techniques to make it move may be as different as they can be, but the results are always the same, meaning that the assemblage point assembles other worlds, aided by the boost from the earth. ~ Don, Juan, The Fire from Within

It’s been a long time since I’ve written, actually, the longest hiatus in the five year history of this blog. It is difficult to put words to the information that reveals itself from the silence. I’ve been trying to decide which direction to go with this blog and the only thing that comes up is forward.

I’ve written a lot about impeccability and those of you who are impeccable actually get it. I’m growing tired of the different distinctions I hear, and even those that I’ve previously defended, about old seers, new seers, modern seers, toltec seers, etc. Either you are a seer or you are not; and if you are, it will be clear that the only thing left is the continual practice of utter impeccability, the conservation of personal energy, and the alignment with intent.

Ordinary people play games to preserve their fragile egos, that’s what they do. It’s boring and laughable. Ordinary people want to rise up to power and “lead others” into a false state of freedom. It’s conniving and trite. In the end, even Carlos was manipulating the lines of awareness to ensure that his “legacy” would flourish in the hope, I speculate, to displace other belief systems. Yes, I’ve said it before; in spite of the genius of the works of Castaneda, many of these are stories and must be recapitulated lest they become the new “religion” as many Castaneda zealots are dedicated to accomplishing.

We’re Called Seers Because We See

Don Juan explained that, like everything in this universe, the path of sorcerers is evolutionary. For that reason, a nagual is always forced to refer to the teachings in new ways. As a consequence of that strategy, nagualism as a total system of practices is divided into breeds or cycles. ~ CC, Encounters with the Nagual

According to Don Juan, there were ancient seers, old seers, and new seers and he believed that massive changes in energy are happening now that inevitably cause the emergence of a new cycle of warriors. Carlos referred to these current day warriors as Modern Seers or The Seers of the New Era. I like the term New Seers of a New Era and as this term too shall evolve, I find myself drawn to simply Warriors of Freedom or even more simply, Seers. When all is said and done, it all comes down to seeing. When we align with intent there is no reason anymore, there is only seeing. Hence the word Seers.

Toltec Warriors

To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other. ~ Carlos Castaneda, The Wheel of Time

Toltec is a Nahuatl word meaning ‘master craftsman’ and this craftsmanship extends to all phases of a warriors existence whether it is through gardening, building, artwork, honing awareness, connecting to silent knowledge, writing books or creating the bridge that facilitates awareness between that which we know and that which we have limited access to.
