That which you call vital essence

Life is a beautiful path that is not limited to what you are physically, each step encourages you to strengthen what you call spirit, call it soul or inner essence, call it whatever you want, but it is in that substance that you will be able to transcend.

“Never worry about what you have not lived, the only thing you should avoid is to stop being part of life, there are many out there who forgot this and are only survivors”

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

Now there is calm and all is peace between the eight friends who wait for the entourage of the priestess of the temple of the moon to leave the caves of Cacahuamilpa, they are not impatient, their days are calm and without great ups and downs.

However, one of the men in the group is perceived by the others with nervousness and the talk that afternoon of the circle of the enlightened will have to address a special topic; their meetings take place under the dim light that reaches them or they simply invoke it in the middle of total darkness.

Evaristo urges Javier to comment with everyone else what is happening to him, for them it is clear that something distresses him and it is in this way that Javier sighs and admits his dismay:

-I am restless my friends, I have tasted the sweetness of a feeling and I don’t know if she will regret seeing me and neither if she will see me as a spirit that she shared with me that night of the offering.

Zila assured everyone that they were not beings without physical essence, but enlightened beings that would somehow be in contact with the disciples of the Erandi temple and asked him not to fear, but Javier continued with his concern, putting both hands to his face and with great concern He sobbed as if he were a teenager, at the moment he exclaimed:

-I am old for a lady to see my strength, energy, a long-lasting life in common …

His friends when seeing him in that state of despair were surprised and understood that the feelings of a human being are sometimes the only thing that can be kept as a treasure to protect everything that surrounds it.

We cannot recognize Metztli as the subject of their anguish, it could surely be someone else, what we can clearly understand is that what some beings learn from love marks them, projecting themselves into everything that they failed to preserve in their past. 

There is a gift for Javier that he does not yet know and that way he will stop thinking that there are last opportunities in life, he will be one of the first promoted in the group and with that, his vision of what ends will have another perspective, but he still does not. He knows and he will not know for a long time, so let’s continue with the very accurate comment by the way that Evaristo makes:

-We are in a new world, with new learnings, life has allowed us to leave behind what damaged us Our trip to Mictlán was the most enriching for each of us, so Javier, please forget what it was and live intensely what life offers you if perhaps that young woman was able to choose you for who you are, she saw your soul, she did not see the man with knee pain problems, she saw the spirit of an enlightened being.

Diego, who all recognized him as a man with the talent of the most robust intuition of the group, was encouraged to say:

-Javier in the past we were chosen by women who saw if we had strong teeth, or we had land and horses, perhaps they noticed Details such as who we sold the cattle to and if we did it at a good price, but when we lost all that, they didn’t see anyone, they needed suppliers. They couldn’t see what we were because they stopped seeing what they needed from us.

Now we are part of a group that sees with hope what we are building and we are going to be part of that world where magic is one of the best reasons to generate unity and attachments.

Finally, Javier looked at them with his face illuminated, assuring:

“True, my friends, I must not let the past envelop me in its traps, we have been born in a new light and she will be our shield and she will show us the way.”

 If we look at the same place each one of us, our goal is common and Dayami and the priestess of the temple of the Moon have shown it to us.

They all smiled happily and extended their hands towards the fire that they invoke with the passion of someone who understands how to look to a hopeful future.

Life is a beautiful path that is not limited to what you are physically, each step encourages you to strengthen what you call spirit, call it soul or inner essence, call it whatever you want, but it is in that substance that you will be able to transcend.
