INSPIRATIONAL TRUTHS

Power rests on the kind of knowledge that one holds. What is the sense of knowing things that are useless ? They will not prepare us for our unavoidable encounter with the unknown.

Feeling important makes one heavy, clumsy and vain. To be a warrior one needs to be light and fluid.

A warrior lives by acting, not by thinking about acting, nor by thinking about what he will think about when he has finished acting.

When one has nothing to lose, one becomes courageous. We are timid only when there is something we can still cling to.

I am already given to the power that rules my fate, and I cling to nothing, so I will have nothing to defend. I have no thoughts, so I will see. I fear nothing, so I will remember myself. Detached and at ease, I will dart past the eagle to be free.

Above Quotations from 'The Wheel of Time' by Carlos Castaneda

If our minds are upset, the natural functions of our bodies also become disturbed. When the mind is calm, the body is relaxed and spontaneous, free and easy. A PURE MIND controls the body and a mastery of the body leads to a pure mind.

Do YOU have trouble relaxing and letting go of the stress and tension in your life ? You can learn easy-to-apply techniques to put you back in control and truly achieve self-belief with Supreme Confidence

FEATURE ARTICLE
THE WARRIOR SHAMAN

Carlos Castaneda was an Anthropology student in 1960, carrying out research into medicinal herbs and plants in the Mexican desert. Here he met the Warrior Shaman and Indian sorcerer Don Juan Matus, whose knowledge and direct lineage of the Toltec traditions traced its origins to ancient times and went back thousands of years.

Don Juan Matus knew about the existence of another realm of reality, which he learnt in his studies of the Native Mexicans, Americans, and the ancient wisdom of the Yaqui and Yuma Indians. He initiated Castaneda through a 13 year apprenticeship that was increasingly difficult, challenging his belief systems until they were completely disassembled and replaced them with a reality beyond question and based on practical truth.

The years between 1960 and 1973 recorded in Castaneda's books were a significant part of his training where he learnt another way of viewing the world, the environment and reality. He was taught the techniques of the Warrior Shaman - and became a man of immense wisdom.

Carlos Castaneda showed us the way of the Warrior Shaman, which reaches beyond everyday existence into a world of possibilities and total freedom. He was one of the most profound and influential thinkers of the modern world and his insights into the nature of reality have shown a new direction for the expansion of human consciousness.

Do YOU want to learn meditation skills that usually take many years of discipline to master ? Here at last is a method tried by many with great success in achieving peace and tranquility quickly and easily ! Think outside the box and believe that you can really reach your goals !

THE WORKS OF CARLOS CASTANEDA

Carlos Castaneda wrote many books on the subject of Shamanism based on his initiation into the world of reality laid down by his master Don Juan Matus. His influential books included :

The Teachings of Don Juan, A Separate Reality, Journey to Ixtlan, Tales of Power, The Second Ring of Power,The Eagles Gift, The Fire from Within, The Power of Silence, The Wheel of Time, The Art of Dreaming, Magical Passes and The Active side of Infinity.

Warrior Shamans learned to perceive energy as it flows through the universe, an energy free from the bindings of socialisation. Pure vibratory life force energy allowed Shamans to SEE the reality of truth. The pathway opens up to a new world as the Shaman learned to shut off the internal dialogue, which allowed extraordinary power and energy to come to the surface for their use in many practical ways.

Don Juan Matus taught that the most important principle and element in the universe is INTENT, which intervened in every aspect of time and space, the impetus and motivation behind everything. The Shamans of ancient Mexico realised that the only way to influence this intent was to live an impeccable life and only the most disciplined practitioners could attempt this. The first aim was to focus the attention with unwavering discipline which allowed the ability to move the 'assemblage point' or world perspective at will to gain immense knowledge.

The energy of the universe flows in and around us in our environment and forms a pattern that we can study and learn about the mysteries of the universe. We can see the world in a new way with clarity and develop the ability to alter the nature of our existence. SEEing energy leads to energetic facts that are final and true and cannot be fit into a distorted interpretation of life. The process of our 'normal' perception are the products of our upbringing and schooling and not reality, yet we base our whole lives on this programming as if it were factual and true.

Learn HOW to unravel some of the mysteries of the universe and develop a spiritual foundation and understanding from which to lead your life. Do You wan't to Develop new skills in your life that give you a clear understanding that leads to self-realisation and enlightenment ?

THE TEACHINGS OF DON JUAN AND DON CARLOS

The origin of the world of Don Juan Matus is rooted in the mysterious ancient Toltec universe of the native tribes who lived close to nature. The idea of truth and reality made up of fields of energy has been experienced down through history by humanity in religious visions, oriental philosophies of Yoga, Qi Gong, Martial Arts and much modern theories of physics, thought and teachings. These fields of energy were known to Don Juan as the Eagle's Emanations and were composed of 48 dimensions, two of which are accessible to humans through normal perception. The bands of energy outside of ordinary life were known as the 'Nagual' a separate reality, the left, intuitive side. Part of the work of the Warrior Shamans was to align and experience these vibrations.

Our perspective on life and how we view the universe is called the assemblage point. This is the point of reference that determines our perception of life. The ultimate goal as laid down by Carlos Castaneda is to affect deliberate movement of the assemblage point to free the self from the confines of ordinary perception and understanding. The entire system of Don Juan's teachings are aimed at this goal and are divided into two areas, the Tonal (right side) and the Nagual (left side).

One way used to shut down our internal dialogue and to change our ordinary understanding of the world is to approach silence by not-doing. This interupts the flow of our internal description of our world accumulated through habitual repetition. Not-doing is the tool that opens the path to the unknown left side - a separate reality or awareness of our higher self. This brings us to the middle path and integrates harmony to the positive and negative energies resulting in the totality of self.

The discipline and training of not-doing helps suspend the 'I' or ego, which keeps us chained to a form of being and behaviour that is illusion. This interruption or suspension of our 'normal' perception opens up unlimited possibilities in what we can be or do and represents an open door to freedom and change, Recognising that we are energy, free and fluid.

HOW to choose the BEST path to base your life on is an individual decision that brings your past experiences to the present moment. Boost your energy and ability to reach your goals and achieve success. ACTION is the KEY to your success. Move closer to your GOALS and Think Right Now

THE MYTH OF THE WARRIOR

The Warrior may be a myth that reflects our most noble aspirations as mortal beings on the planet earth. It serves as a rare guide and invitation to transform ourselves into magical beings. These myths are stories transmitted from generation to generation and are real in that they serve as a function of hope and belief of the ability to develop power, magic, freedom and to be enlightened beings. Myths represent the dreams of human beings - the myth of Christ, who was transformed through a life of purification into a God-man. The myths of all great saints and leaders follow the same theme of the aspirations of their spirit and the struggles, tests and doubts through which they must pass to transcend the chaos of the human condition.

The myths of Warriors serve as a guide for action to promote methods of conduct to finally achieve and reach that place of rest, silence and freedom. The way of the Warrior represents a magical being living in everyday society. This reflects our most worthy and dignified aspirations as mortals, but we never reach the end product and are always walking further along an infinite path to glory.

Don Juan said in Castaneda's books that a man goes to knowledge the same way he goes to war - with fear, respect, awareness and absolute confidence, and those who follow the path of knowledge are Warriors. The spirit of a warrior is a central theme found in the works of Castaneda and is the attitude required for the discipline of the path of knowledge. This has nothing to do with violence or war as we know it, but the warrior is always struggling against personal and individual weaknesses and limitations where we can choose how we want to live and be. It is a struggle to achieve harmony, peace, and freedom and the battle is inside of us, the search for impeccability and perfection in every action. This implies optimum use of our vital life force energy.

This way of life challenges us to transform our smallest acts beyond our limits, each time to be better, more real, gentle and powerful. Once we have used not-doing to achieve silence we then have the ability to be detached from life's problems and use this knowledge to help those around us in any way we can. This method of living brings positive energy to the people, environment and the universe in which we all reside.
