“Reason is rich in ideas, contemplates from the shadows what may be feasible and remains in control of its desires”The Messenger
By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa
Zila will recall with his group of friends a series of reflections that will make you intuit new realities, each of the men who have now been enlightened for a valuable reason to move on will let themselves be carried away by intuition, it offers them to fantasy and ingenuity where something is needed to be understood; with it, they have to work out alternate realities and protect their true intentions.
At the centre of the place they inhabit, they recognize that a new voice has been born, whose experience can change the course of things and become a fascinating ally, their reality navigates between a calm port and another full of possibilities, however, they are aware that it is not all will be easily achievable.
Zila pointed to the group that night with the full moon:
-I have the impression that someone else received the message, when Jacobo touched the conch, his impulse is tremendous, for all of us he could be an ally but his ambition may not understand our intentions, I don´t know. But she whose name should remain among us is Dayami, the deity of the river has contacted him, she told me clearly:
“Let to Bormanicus, protector of the clan and the house, lord who inhabits the depths of the seas who solve every mystery and bring them to fruition, he has heard Jacobo’s call for unity.”
Jacobo with a wide smile exclaimed to all the companions whose faces were illuminated by the strengthened reflections of the full moon and at the same time by the fire of the bonfire that for them had become a symbol of ceremonial unity:
-We are not alone, our roots do not belong to the same cradle, each of us can evoke in their traditions the soul of their deities and in that way transform everything for the common good!
Zila pointed out, this is how Bormanicus is the protector of the healing waters, but at the same time he can be brave like no other; in (the site he refers to is what is now known as Caldas de Vizela, Portugal) to the north of this area where we are, his initiation rituals give strength to the warriors, I feel him, he is part of my Celtic roots.
All of them observed each other in silence and Diego warned:
-Each one will know about the other’s beliefs and will find a link in them, Jacobo woke up to the call of the conch without knowing that his lineage was a brotherhood of some way with that shell; I suppose that Dayami will speak to you closely since she found in your blood how to reach you and do it with all of us; Santiago will be the one who preserves each symbol, he will be the diffuser of who we are in ways that we still do not know; Evaristo will be guided by his knowledge and intuition of what is good for us and what will keep us alive; the messages we receive unite us and are the richness of what we illuminate.
Patrick with wide eyes pointed out:
-We will know when it will be necessary to invoke whoever we need, she told me that I would be a builder, brothers we do not need to go up under the command of anyone, we can make our ship, if perhaps my talent exists to build, I will, we will sail under the invocation of the allies.
The trees of that forest that inhabited whispered in a way that seemed different to them, each one took a fist of earth and threw it to the bonfire that raised graceful dancing figures celebrating their discoveries.
When your plans are those of others when your life is linked to a project, nothing can stop you, nobody can limit you, just advance that today the opportunity is yours, such belong to the group that is strengthened.
