“The mystery of the message sent will not be the same for everyone, but everyone will know that it obeys what they know; in the right measure of things the magic arises ”The Messenger
By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa
Today it is important to reflect when we see that what I did not dare to look at and wanted to turn into a short story, has managed to extend beyond all predictions, well it is to analyze that long-lasting relationships are like bulky books, the endpoint is not reached, simply because it is not necessary.
It is well known that the message for everyone is not the same and neither is the way it is received. Blood becomes a relevant factor in the first novel when Camino receives an arrow through his back that pierces his heart and his blood is that crimson thread that bathes the bones of the whale, the representation of the totem that inherits the ancient history of the Celts and later will become the means of language that discovers the mysteries in the runes.
Another inevitable fatal sacrifice as part of a millenary ritual is the one suffered by Dayami, whose blood is kept in a clay container by the priestess Erandi to be later poured into the waters of the Papaloapan River and become the vehicle and message that will cross the wide sea until finally reaching Zila who watches her at the end like a crimson thread.
For other characters in the story, symbolic gifts will give strength to its members, Jacobo and the conch, it will be their ally and their strength; Now you will find at the dawn of science that on many occasions you will not have to communicate with words when you discover in details of the daily life of various peoples that there is a universal language whose practicality helps you to look beyond yourself.
They have already put into practice each of their discoveries that in the right measure of things, they have realized that this is how magic inevitably arises.
We are approaching the moment when the full moon will demand in Metztli the intuitive strength to recognize itself in the lands where it was born and to illuminate the feeling of freedom that the moon requests when it connects with the rabbits in a magical ritual:
Tochtli (rabbit), would be the course designated on this occasion with the gaze towards the South; or huitztlampa, “place of thorns”, the complex site and the hazardous terrain that Painani runs towards the house of the Sun; in the same way Tochtli is represented by the colour: blue, the exact representation of the water through which Dayami sends his messages.
It is important to note that in the sacrifice of what is now the river deity, Dayami, a new century was being celebrated, this happens every 52 years and each of those centuries has its name formed by a numeral from one to the other. 13 thus the following four signs: tochtli (rabbit), ácatl (cane), tecpatl (flint knife) and calli (house). they will form a course and path through the universe, in that particular way.
In every detail, we once again observe that the right measure of things allows magic to emerge. Later we will hear a statement that for now, I will not tell you who will say it and under what circumstances, but these will be the words:
“I will turn one year of your life into an experience in 13!”
What we know for sure is that Metztli, who represents the serpent moon and water, is near the Otomí ceremonial centre with its basket where it carries two rabbits, a female and a male, united they represent Ometeotl and at the time that The moon appears glorious, they will undertake a sidereal journey to meet the libertarian luminosity. The present that we live is a full moon in Aquarius.
Each symbol, regardless of the culture you belong to, will tell you about extraordinary similarities, let yourself be carried away by the whispering of nature and you will understand the magic that inhabits your time.
