“Everything that you have travelled, the passages that have become the recurring path of an instant sustained in time, are the journey; very few have grasped in the midst of the hubbub that there is a common thread and a breath where you recognize yourself ”The Messenger

“Not all are born when they should and not all are born where they should”, with these words he contemplates the face of his beloved Erandi the man who is her confident and ally in all that she has accomplished, he has protected her from others discovering her true intentions, he has covered her to help evade those laws imposed by Huey Tlatoani where death must be offered to the deities.
Erandi looks at him with tears in her eyes and recognizes that it is true, arguing:
-Love, Quizari Taiyari, I agree with you, maybe our life would have been different if we were born in another time.
He only kisses her and takes her face delicately at the moment that reminds her of something:
-Erandi, my beloved, we could have been born in another place, but the soul of the being that we are, would be the same, would fight for the same, we are that class of people who must face their moment and make a difference. We have realized what it is not possible to repeat the same histories and that will be our fight, to be on the edge of the abyss and learn that the moment one of us push the other to jump, we will do it, we are willing to do it, since it will be the only way to learn to fly with our wings, to believe in what we are.
Tradition is many times a walking stick but on other occasions, it becomes the instrument that supports the blind and makes them feel safe, immobilizes them and prevents them from going beyond what provides them with security.
Erandi smiled and replied with an example that they had recently experienced:
-You did realize it, right? Yaocihuatl, trying to walk, realized that it was easy to fall and raised his arms in search of support, she did not look for support on the ground, she did so by raising her arms in the air until she kept them at the sides of her body and balanced, it was surprising; we are its essence, we know that support does not reside in what gives us security.
Quizari Taiyari emphasized the words of his beloved:
-The roots are already ours, we do not need to make them present, we must go to the next level and that is not easy, but it is necessary. To all this, you know what can happen, you are aware that this will not be easy, right?
Erandi lowered her gaze and wiped away her tears:
-I know, love, I know very well, I understand; I have clear visions of what we will see, I just hope to listen to the guiding voices with the necessary force not to be silenced the true message.
They both embraced passionately and enjoyed the calm that was still breathable at that moment in their history.
When all the signals have confirmed what you will see in the future, do not say anything, wait calmly and discover if the messages were apprehended in their proper measure, that is enough.
