“Observe your daily work, with it, you forget the pain, there you are rewarded with everything you have cultivated and sown; Amid everything, what you have achieved vibrates, it is your effort, enjoy it today, that is the gift of life.”The Messenger

That morning they began to wake up from that lethargy and the enormous effort that each one of the eight enlightened ones lived through, some of them thought that Javier would be the one who would take the longest to return from the abysmal depths of Mictlán, the presumption was that he would be the one who had treasured the most experiences and memories in his life and therefore it would be more difficult for him to get rid of them, however, it was different, He was one of the first to return.
What tied them to the past stopped impeding each of them, that was the spirit and the sparkle on their faces when they returned; the world magically opened for all of them, a new world, new relationships and of course for many of them the hope of the offering that each one had experienced, there was the desire to complete the picture with a variety of situations that they did not imagine.
Evaristo was the third to return since the first among all had been Dayami, she had undoubtedly already received previous training and for that reason on the way had become the guide of each one of them.
With a wide smile, he embraced his partner Javier and prepared to prepare delicious Xocolatl again for all the enlightened ones; As he looked at the grains of that plant that was impressive to him, he commented to Javier:
-Brother, profits have to come and they have to go in the midst of what we are about to live in these lands, everything can change from one moment to another, it depends on the perspective with which we see the events, we will all, just complete the circle, the path will show us how to move towards something completely new.
Javier thoughtful and hoping that the drink that Evaristo was preparing was ready, warned:
-There is no mastery in what we not doing, practice will give us favourable results and there will even be tasks that we do not know that will be beneficial to us, we will have new knowledge about the shoulders, we are among the people we should be.
Each one of the travelling companions and new adventures to come was waking up, Diego was the fourth and Zila the fifth, Jacobo the sixth and Timoteo the seventh and of course everyone clearly understood the reason why the last to return would be Patricio, they knew perfectly well, that for him material goods, attachments and control over the life he led and the one he would now face was fundamental, it took him immense work to recognize that the nakedness of the soul and body is an attribute for travelling light and with an enormous effort he had to admit.
Finally, they took turns providing each others food as the procession sent by Erandi came to them to lead them to the temple of the Moon.
Every new beginning is exciting and at the same time fills us with fears, if you have enough support, life will show you that anything is possible.
