The power of interpretation

Life gives us talents to understand the way, it depends on the path your understanding capacity has been shaped, each issue will be shaped by amazing creations to enlighten you or lose you.

Hora meditated with his beloved about the allegory of the symbols that brought certain legends and myths closer to the people he had met through his travelled ensuring that his interpretations did not broaden the panorama of everyone, only of those who had grown up in a certain region or culture and their perspective placed them in a way of seeing things.

Suddenly he got up as was his custom and with a jump, he turned to look at Painani when he exclaimed:

-Imagine that we could extend the prism, expand the vision of the others, not everyone has chosen the reason to interpret their symbols, they usually do it with magical thinking or inclined to their beliefs and devotion to their deities.

He meditated a few moments and thoughtfully pointed out:

-There is a way of seeing that is logical, it is analytical, there are events that we can foresee and that not even praying to a deity can be modified even when the prayer is a pleasant subterfuge for the soul, that is undoubted; Of course, prayers and beliefs try to be a balm to change reality, but this is forceful, what it is, it is presented as it is. Everything we can intuit allows us to make profiles …

Taking a stick from the ground, he began to draw at random, it was nothing concrete, they were simple figures on the ground. 

Then he continues with his reflections:

But most of them are based on a method that he learned over time and which is called life cycles.

Painani was thinking about everything he said and asked: –

Do you think that what is a cycle for us is not for those who live in distant lands?

-Maybe there are differences, my beloved, but we don’t know, we can look for a more specific answer. Did you tell me that Dayami discovered some animals that the Castizos call horses on the other side of the wide sea, right?

Painani nodded and followed attentively to Hora’s comments, who enthusiastically pointed out:

-Imagine that both your trip and mine had been in one of those powerful animals, the cycles of time, our journey would have been different and our perception of the Time would also have been transformed, we would not have observed in the same way the life that surrounded us on the way, we would not have mixed with others in the way we did.

We would not have had the time to assimilate anything and our idea of ​​life would not have been mixed with that of others, it would have been difficult to change our perspective and our symbols would be the same, in another space, then …

Painani was terrified when hearing that and understood what Dayami had discovered, that those men on horseback did not come with the intention of understanding, but of imposing due to the lack of time to assimilate the life cycle of the others.

Then she firmly affirmed:

-Loved Hora, I understand what you are saying, reality has to be presented as it is for them …

Those loose lines drawn with a stick on the ground suddenly transformed into something different that they both observed with astonishment:

Hora raised arms and alerted Painani:

-We are before a clear vision of that reality that awaits us in a short time.

Painani threw herself into Hora’s arms when she warned:

It is precisely at that moment when the cycle will be equally covered for you, is it not?

The man, kiss her warmly the moment he smiled and happily whispered in her ear:

-Don’t live in fear,  you have been trained for the light, she is wise to understand that the cycles must complete stages, relax that what is rushing your life now, will take a back seat later, the light trains us for that, unless the weight of the present was more important to a human being, his step into the light will become painful. It’s not our case, now you understand, right?

Painani observed him with the gaze of someone who was illuminated by the wisdom of a being who knew perfectly what he was saying and they observed that figure where they recognized the power of the beast and reason, the illuminated duality of the human transforming the universe with a thrown arrow in the air.

Life gives us talents to understand the way, it depends on the path your understanding capacity has been shaped, each issue will be shaped by amazing creations to enlighten you or lose you.

The forced agreement with Huey Tlatoani

When you take for granted that history cannot be looked at in any other way, there will always be someone who will come to you and tell you, take a good look, there is something you haven’t seen, take another look at the landscape and discover it.

“There will be times when you will do everything in your power to get away with it, your most favourable quality is intuition and you will use it intelligently to achieve the goal”

The day came that arrival of the eight Lords of Light was present at the majestic Tenochtitlán, all of them were surprised by the structures of that city supported on the skin of a huge lake and were amazed, Zila remembered the moment when the whale held them In his barge, in the middle of the wide sea, that was the feeling of warmth that he felt when he arrived at the impressive site of the Mexicas.

Zila compares the huge city with the whale that helps them in the middle of the sea

The inhabitants made a fence to observe and greet them, they were guarded by the entourage of the priestess of the temple of the Moon and that journey surprised the locals, since on other occasions when foreigners arrived at the big city, they were generally prisoners whose destiny it was to turn them into offerings of the flowery wars.

This time the procession gave them an air of dignity and respect, they admired the faces and clothes of the men, women and children of that beautiful city; at the distance in the Temple of the Sun the figure of Huey Tlatoani could be seen, a reserved man who, pressing his lips, remembered the words said by Erandi on the eve of the meeting with the newcomers:

“Those who are about to arrive are part of my group, related to a blood agreement where you offered the heart to preserve the life of Huitzilopochtli and I offered the blood in search of the answers Quetzalcóatl needs. First of all, you cannot do anything against the newcomers. ”

There is a history of confusion regarding the figure of the Feathered Serpent, called Quetzalcóatl, many say that it was a male with an appearance similar to the Lords of Light whose task was to end the atrocities of blood offered on the stone of sacrifices.

What I can argue in my story is that none of the enlightened, now named Lords of Light, were aware of what was happening and why such living offerings were made, the only one who did not agree with the sacrifices was Erandi, we can consider her the alter ego of Quetzalcóalt, in the same way, that Alnitak was in Odin’s life.

The humanistic part of history that we are as duality involves a mystery, we all have a feminine and a masculine side and in times of war and devastation the sensitive and intuitive side of these leaders was the one that skillfully made the difference, they made school and they held their groups together in search of answers to create unity, not devastation and war.

In the case at hand, Erandi used her cunning to make Huey Tlatoani see that precisely in the figure of Quetzalcóatl were the answers that opposed what he considered necessary; But as we all know, Erandi was not a public figure in the stories told by the conquerors and some dare to say that Jesus Christ himself incarnated the feathered serpent.

Although years later religious syncretism was championed by the conquerors, this strange comparison creates profound confusion. What I can assure in my story is that Erandi used magic to convey messages to Huey Tlatoani in his dreams where he would subtly understand that a change in values ​​was necessary and even when no one can assure that this was the true history. Anyway,  I would like to consider it as that alternate reality that is sometimes necessary to see history from another perspective.

When you take for granted that history cannot be looked at in any other way, there will always be someone who will come to you and tell you, take a good look, there is something you haven’t seen, take another look at the landscape and discover it.

The contemplative stage is about to end

It is enough to know that the will and the surrender are part of a group where each situation that is faced will seek to balance and vibrate in unison, simply learn to observe and believe that it is true.

“What do you want and what is the plan, how will you renew creativity? It is time to see what you have in front of you and what the path outlined offers you, time to take the reins and leave behind what does not work, that which stopped working for the group, trusting in abundance is important ”

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

Erandi remained on the esplanade of the deity of the Moon for several hours since dawn, she maintained a contemplative attitude and at the same time receptive to the forces and energies of nature and the stars that accompanied her from on high.

She focused on the energies of the men who approached her with enthusiasm and hope and was inspired by summoning the strength of the earth and trees to give them confidence in their journey.

Both they and their group need help to understand each other and they recognized the willingness of the delegation to collaborate in this integration. Some details would be easy to share and others that would remain in the evolution of each of the Lords of Light; Erandi called upon the spirits that surrounded her to gain power, giving a subtle force through an elaborate dance by her in search of balance and waiting for all thoughts to connect to do her work.

Of course, this reached her disciples, joining this call where each one of them heard within themselves: “Trust in abundance”:

Dayami, valued the connection achieved, Meztli, recognized that it was the only way to integrate what she was waiting, Painani discovered that beyond the distance that separated her from her land, a bond had been established that the blasts of the Lightning strengthened in the abundance of symbols to be rescued; Iztli appreciated the permanent contact of the priestess and observed the shine of his crosier with the sign of recognition to his honest answer delivered to the newcomers; Itzmin would discover in the course of that meditation of forces that he would be endowed with a new breath coming from Hora, Painani’s partner; then its name would be more than a simple representation of the electrifying force of the Lightning, a quality given to shape and change the forces of the environment.

In this way, a warrior with the command crosier would become a strengthened spear projected into the sky, but this has not happened yet, it is necessary to remain calm. The only thing we know was that Erandi was able to speak directly with Hora that morning when she exclaimed:

“Hora, the time has come to unify forces and abandon privilege, your gifts will be shared with those who are manifested in your same path, today I dance to give you the strength and the joy of being part of us ” 

Hora woke up with a warm sweat on his body and cheered up her beloved Painani when he told her:

“ She has recognized the unity we are with the universe and who I am. it will be shared in those whose talent can understand it and those who do not conceive of possessing it will be trained; Erandi dances this morning a fascinating and exotic dance that has called me; Come join me because the answer is in the body of each one of us.”

Without waiting for Painani to wake up completely, he lifted her in his arms and carried her under the starry sky to ignite the spark of the dance that would connect with Erandi’s energy and in that frenzy the world was surrounded by a special force. 

Alnitak smiled into the distance and recognized that this would no longer stop from anything, or anyone else.

It is enough to know that the will and the surrender are part of a group where each situation that is faced will seek to balance and vibrate in unison, simply learn to observe and believe that it is true.

In your memories, there will always be the bent rod

It is possible that the society they address is not what they expect and many of the rituals and experiences will dislocate and terrify them, but the group that gives them strength is the one they have joined even before arriving, remember that was all due to a bent rod.

“You will want to discover secrets that go beyond the limit of loyalty, then you will understand where you are standing, and what you should expect”

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

Javier, as we well know, was the most concerned in matters of love and he wanted to find out once they had some confidence with the Mexica who made up the procession if they knew what like the young women who had been part of the offering and how they were.

Precisely one of the men from the Tlaxcala neighbourhood, which in Nahuatl means “Place of cornbread,” answered him. His name was Itzim whose meaning in Nahuatl is “Thunder”, the young man seriously pointed out, trying to explain himself with mimicry, some words in Spanish and others in Nahuatl:

-Erandi, the priestess of the deity Ometeotl, which for us is the union of the man and woman, as she has taught us, intelligence, wisdom and fullness emerge from them; Erandi is aware of the customs of distant villages, as you know she recently visited the Lady of Fire who lives in the heights of very distant lands.

Well, we are not given much information, we are part of the group of messengers, what has become clear to us is that she understands that every seed needs a territory to flourish, that is why she organized the offering.

Something very important that you should know is that Mrs Erandi made a show of ingenuity because all of you are the first to visit us from such a distant place and under the mystical safe-conduct of the river deity, the maiden Dayami.

Itztli, whose name means obsidian, was the only one of us who was on the threshold of the enclosure where the young women were on the day we were summoned to undertake the journey to the Cacahuamilpa caves, then, out of the corner of his eye, he observed his companion with a penetrating gaze, to whom he gave the floor:

-I am holding the messengers’ command crosier, that is why I was summoned by the priestess at dawn that day, I cannot break the rules of the Ometeotl deity and I cannot offend the privacy of anything that will form a bond as strong as a boulderstone and it is not up to me that this happens is a matter of the feelings of those who lived it.

Javier, somewhat disgruntled, accepted that the loyalty between two people is unique and, bowing his head, decided to take the comments of the Nahua men willingly.

Diego added with emotion, we have already lived those relationships where you know that what sustains them is not a private matter and we have understood that in them there is something more than a union, there is a declared matter of interests that in the end have nothing to do with love.

There was a deep silence and everyone looked at each other with certain complicity as they understood that where magic elaborates its work, the will and understanding are different, each word said was understood in the same way as you accompany the person you understand in a  dance. you don’t need too much, just follow him at each step to create a beat.

Finally, Zila pointed out: 

Erandi’s bent Rod at Zila’s call

-There is a will to create an atmosphere of understanding and if the ladies, like our new friends, have been educated in the same school, the magic will be working in our favour, do not fear Javier that the universe has connived something great, again we meet the Thunder in the figure of a friend, Itzim has especially enlightened us tonight and has given us renewed hope, also with the word of  Iztli,  thank you very much. 

It is possible that the society they address is not what they expect and many of the rituals and experiences will dislocate and terrify them, but the group that gives them strength is the one they have joined even before arriving, remember that was all due to a bent rod.

Abundance, the best gift to share

When no one has told you that the one in front of you is an enemy and you have the opportunity to meet him, you will realize that in front of you there is a human being who is your reflection and you will not see antagonism or hatred in his words. But others will arrive whose education and traditions have challenged them: Annihilate, erase the one who is different, mark him as a stranger and hate him, but that will happen years later.

“There are stories that cannot be told without religion, there are religions that would not exist without believers, that’s what there is, if you can look you can understand what you can change ”

The road to Tenochtitlán was not easy for the newcomers, training for long journeys on foot was one of the faculties of the Mexica, the people who lived on the other side of the wide sea used the help of horses to achieve this activity. However, they were moved by the enthusiasm and intelligence of the men who with great agility helped them along the way.

The Landscape of the Valley of Mexico

Patricio who always went ahead to put worldly matters first began to ask with mimicry the names of the things that surrounded them, it was not easy for Dayami to keep up with them and she needed a certain calm in the body of Zila to be able to communicate, Patricio hated to depend on holding hands in a group, it was not easy to organize an improvised circle to interact with his translator and therefore he decided to learn during the trip what he could of that extraordinary unknown language completely to them.

Of course, the others followed suit and we may well think that the best training a man can get on a long walk is his enthusiasm for learning something new.

It was not easy for everyone, in Javier’s case things got complicated, his legs got tired more often and his knee began to bother him and it was a good time to investigate the endemic flora of the site by Evaristo that in a few hours he had a very helpful ointment, called toloache.

One of the men of Tlaxcala origin who was in the group felt great joy when he was able to repeat something that Diego mentioned in Spanish:

“We are made of stars.”

Moving into a new world was fun, hazardous and dazzling, each space and all the landscapes recharged the energies of the newly appointed Lords of Light; the world offered a new opportunity to both those at home and newcomers to learn together and they did not waste it.

They shared a gift of abundance, understanding the beliefs that they had abandoned and the reasons why they had done so, definitely helped the Mexica to understand the value of a belief seen from the gaze of power and they realized that what they lived in was not entirely different.

The one and the other turned out to be magnificent teachers of their own cultures, they shared the source of knowledge and the enlightened ones recognized the central notion of the Erandi school in all of them.

They recognized the strong discipline that she imposed on each of the tasks that she put in front of them and they realized that connecting turned out to be a unifying task and an achievement in their lives.

When no one has told you that the one in front of you is an enemy and you have the opportunity to meet him, you will realize that in front of you there is a human being who is your reflection and you will not see antagonism or hatred in his words. But others will arrive whose education and traditions have challenged them: Annihilate, erase the one who is different, mark him as a stranger and hate him, but that will happen years later.

The Pact with The Lightning

If you know the origin of your traditions, in them you will find strength and power to create new talents and preserve them over time, modify their meanings to turn them into something powerful and forget about dogmas.

“Before you, new paths will open, feed your intentions, manifest everything you want to make reality; walking the path of wisdom is not easy, it is full of obstacles, learn to expect what you have wished for, work for it “

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

That morning Hora got up very early and went to wake up Painani who had not agreed to accompany him in the hammock that he loved so much, he addressed her with sweet and happy words:

-My beloved, it is time for your sadness to disappear, today I will summon the Lightning to make a pact together, he must know clearly that you have decided to Take Control therefore when power is shared, you must know that you will be with a huge responsibility in your life journey.

We have to know if Lightning offers you the benefit of leadership, at that moment you will become a protector that with humility you will have to achieve important advances in the tasks that you have proposed.

He took her by the hand and led her to the clearing in the forest and raising his arms he exclaimed the presence of the Lightning with these words:

“Lord who enlightens everything, for whom nothing is hidden, let your presence appear before us, I must bring Painani, the woman I have chosen to continue the space of life that corresponds to me on this earth and she has decided to stop being an observer, she wants to participate, take control of the decisions we have, for this she will be surrounded by the power to share and need know if you offer part of the leadership summon through magic”

The sky was obscured by storm clouds that hovered in the landscape, the beam does not hit the ground spread throughout the horizon and there was total silence, suddenly before the astonished look of Painani, Lightning with precision defoliated the rod of a leafy tree and then surrounding it in a spiral and cutting it with precision, he threw it with force towards her who immobile did not know if it would be pierced by that spear that shone like fire.

Painani closed her eyes in fear but did not move, she was holding the hand of her beloved Hora and stood at the foot of the storm that was roaring up in the heights but that did not produce rain, only impressive bursts of lights that were part of the body of the Lightning.

When that kind of arrow came close to her, the tones of fire were transformed back into wood, and rolling on the air they were able to observe that it had countless colourful and mystical engravings, being close to Painani it stuck in the ground near her feet, in the same way, that he had done when he planted himself with force before her to not allow her from entering the lagoon where her beloved Hora was defending himself from the serpent, but this time he placed before her a crosier of power and in this way offered her leadership that she had requested.

Hora exclaimed raising the arm that was joined to that of his beloved on high when he said:

“Let the engravings of this crosier of power be the inheritance for those who in the future possess the strength and talent to Take Power and respond to the call of the Lightning.”

(Reminder)

They have to remember in the third book of the series the moment when Ana Pérez Riv visits the classroom of Zila’s students, who receive her with amazement and in her hands, she carries a strange crosier with various mystical engravings, for now, they know the origin of the Crosier of the Lineage of the Enlightened.

If you know the origin of your traditions, in them you will find strength and power to create new talents and preserve them over time, modify their meanings to turn them into something powerful and forget about dogmas.

The Entourage

The world forgets solidarity not because it does not know it, it does so because it lost reasons to admit it and discovered sophisticated ways to separate itself from others.

“We all have goals to fulfil and a community in which to prosper and cling to build in unity”

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

Dawn was breaking when the entourage arranged by Erandi arrived, in this way they announced themselves at the entrance of the Cacahuamilpa caves; the cinnamon-coloured men exclaimed that they felt honoured to receive them in their lands, and they were called the Lords of Light.

All of them were happy and thanks to Dayami who interceded as a translator, Zila was able to explain to her companions what the entourage expressed to them. When each of the burly knights greeted them with kindness, the one holding the crosier of command addressed the group:

-In the name of the Priestess of the Temple of the Moon who has put all her trust in all of you, I welcome you.

He continued:

-The time has come to leave the shadows and forget what they once thought to be true, to relearn in this new space inhabited by all of us.

Let us leave these majestic caves, without a trace of all of you, let us free your steps from curious glances. Having said this, the man who held the staff with one hand, made a sign to his people with the other urging them to begin that task and then continued:

– The will is a tool of incalculable power, never forget it, creativity will always be your ally.

Having said this, the man with the feathered headdress invited the Lords of Light to sit in a circle, the last to join was Evaristo who was guarding the leaves Amatl, some healing items and a saddlebag with xocolatl.

Finally, with a great exhausted sigh, he warned:

Encourage everyone to share with me whatever you want, but keep it brief, we must rest from the long journey we made on foot from Tenochtitlán.

I understand that there will always be a new challenge to dust off, a path to be travelled and you Lords of Light must have countless stories, I listen to you but remember that the journey awaits us very early along paths that will take you by surprise.

All of you will show your true face, the light expands through you and in the face of an affront that we may have, we are here to defend you.

Everything was calm while the Lords of Light shared some anecdotes and drank together with the delicious xocolatl that Evaristo prepared for all of them, their happiness was notorious in that meeting where no one was seen differently, it is a story lost in the time before the invasive actions that would come years later.

Remember that in matters of magic there are details that no one knows, but some settlers would share these memories as an oral tradition, although many have forgotten them.

The world forgets solidarity not because it does not know it, it does so because it lost reasons to admit it and discovered sophisticated ways to separate itself from others.

Discover the light

No matter what comes, the construction of your path is a place where your dreams will always be and in the force of its projection, you will achieve the unity of others with your ideas, however difficult it may be.

“No one wants to remain in total anonymity, you will realize that being who you are for the group where you have grown up, cried and sometimes struggled more than a responsibility is a way of bringing yourself before the light, your actions are the reflection of your Thoughts “

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

While Painani was still meditating what would be the best request she would make of the Lightning through her beloved, indecisive, she did not opt ​​for one in particular and was the most personal one such as:” That I can listen to you in silence when I need it ”, even a more forceful one:“ Let the Lightning make the peoples resistant to the attack of the conquerors”; in this way, between desiring and duty, it was debated in irresolution.

Logically much is expected of the future and of work done with patience, dedicating time to someone rewards us with wealth in learning and assets; every moment in the lives of all humans has led them to overcome obstacles that have sometimes been unfathomable.

In dreams there is solidarity, the pain of loneliness and the limitations of various kinds, something is certain, no one in life is frustrated, all of the beings know that have the opportunity to pursue their dreams and that is what all this is about.

Now let us return to the caves of Cacahuamilpa were one of the men most reluctant to change and accustomed in the past to material goods, anxiously wondered how he knew the power that would accompany him, so he approached Evaristo in search of answers:

– Brother, something is bothering me. I recognize my gift as a builder, but I don’t know what I am going to build, how will I know the voices of my materials?

Evaristo stayed for a moment looking at him strangely, Patricio’s gaze was one of insistence:

-Patricio, how did those trees that a lightning strike threw across the land in our distant home on the other side of the wide sea speak to you?

There are countless ways to create connections to receive messages, do you agree?

Listening closely to the talk was Diego, who approached them and exclaimed:

-Brothers, every magician is an observer, a seeker of the spark that lights the fire in the middle of the darkness. we are discoverers of light where it is difficult to find it, make it shine and grow.

Patricio looked at them in amazement and a bit embarrassed for asking these kinds of questions, simply with a nervous laugh he replied:

-I’m a fool, I was the first of all to talk to the materials …

Zila approached the group and hugged Patricio affectionately:

-Brother, we are facing something that makes us see the world differently, if we had been immersed in our survival routines we would not have known it.

What I would like to know the most is if this awakening will help others in the same way; dreams and the road, all our intentions, sometimes I feel that we are living in a different time than everyone else.

Timoteo seriously raised his hand to declare:

-You have said it, if we were immersed in every day we would be people of this time, we could not see in advance and in good part that is what we do.

Evaristo stared at the group with a thoughtful attitude, while Timoteo added:

-It would be very difficult for us to see beyond ourselves; they live now day by day they have done it.

Javier warned:

-Maybe behind us others did it and have formed us, their intention is ours, it is as if we had launched a bolt that long ago was also fired to illuminate the future.

Over time, the arrow was transformed. It is not necessary to argue much.

Jacobo smiled and pointed:

-An arrow lit in the fire that illuminates wisdom!

They smiled happily, their destiny was looking at a place that no one had inhabited before, ready to dialogue with the universe amid the total uncertainty of all that they could not control.

No matter what comes, the construction of your path is a place where your dreams will always be and in the force of its projection, you will achieve the unity of others with your ideas, however difficult it may be.

Amatl and the encounter with freedom

In life you always have to find a group from which you can learn what will serve you in the journey of your existence, it is enough to know how to see, sometimes it is not necessary to clarify anything, the envelope of the beings that will surround you can be transparent or not, you will have the power to penetrate without the need to let them know, without aggression and with the truth in your hands.

“You will discover that it is not necessary to depend on anyone when your spiritual journey is the way where you can find tools and allies of great power”

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

Evaristo, walking in search of food, discovered on the outskirts of the caves a tree with unique characteristics, what attracted him the most was the rustle of its branches that somehow brought to mind memories of distant times; That meeting was impressive not only because that type of tree was unknown to him.

He understood immediately that a good part of this acquired skill was due to his gifts as a healer, and as an enlightened person, these qualities were much more evident.

He could not stay outside for long, there was the latent danger of being discovered by the villagers who surrounded the area, but before retiring he prepared to speak with that marvellous tree:

-Lord, you have allowed me to connect with ancient stories, which not only belong to these vast territories, I can inquire into the depths of your feelings if you help me to connect with the deity of the river so that she intercedes between us and in that way to understand each other much better.

Evaristo waited a moment for an answer in the whisper of the branches of that unknown prodigy, the only thing that happened is that the tree dropped one of its branches at the feet of Evaristo, who took it in his hands and threw it running …

Without looking back, he went back into the caves to share the fascinating event with his friends, with great joy he came to them recounting what had happened:

-Brothers I found magic in the tree that Dayami showed us in dreams

Zila with surprise exclaimed:

– You mean the Amatl?

-Yes, of course, the tree in some strange way without words spoke to me and pointed out that it was the magic tool of offerings, I don’t know how I could understand it, then I asked if I could contact Dayami to intercede between us, but I couldn’t to hear his whisper again in that special way in my head, he just dropped a branch of his lush foliage in front of me, I would love to have more conversations with him.

Amatl

 Zila, somewhat absorbed in the comment, raised his hands to wait for Dayami’s response, they did not have to wait long for her to answer:

-Evaristo, I have Dayami’s message, let’s listen carefully, said Zila:

Holding hands as already they had gotten used to it, they got ready to listen to Dayami who with great joy declared something that kept them especially happy:

-My friends have achieved their independence, you do not need me to connect with the mystical forces, each one of you  will hold an instrument with the magic in the future, which will create a wonderful synergy; Between the Amatl and Evaristo there is no need for an intercessor, you are free to connect with his strength and his mysteries, is the same for all of you will be delivered  a kind of instrument as Evaristo does.

Evaristo will understand that his voice is not and cannot be human, the whisper will come to you so that you can interpret everything, in the same way, that you achieved it a moment ago.

Evaristo smiled satisfied when hearing those words, Dayami continued: 

-All of you will always find people on your journey who will not tell you everything you will see in them, some are thieves of energy and others carriers of encouragement and wisdom.

Dayami paused before continuing:

Evaristo is able as a healer to recognize the difference and that is part of your strength, in due course each of you will be able to recognize that magical instrument that will make you see reality differently.

-Each one of the enlightened ones felt great satisfaction when hearing that and Dayami finally added:

-I will be among you as now if you need me you will find me, but I am not the only force from which you can learn, consider me the initiator of your power of the same way that I consider you since from you I am now who I am.

Each of the enlightened ones understood that the journey is a force from which something new is learned every day, nothing is static and everything contributes if the breath of being with others is part of the whole and persists in your mind.

In life you always have to find a group from which you can learn what will serve you in the journey of your existence, it is enough to know how to see, sometimes it is not necessary to clarify anything, the envelope of the beings that will surround you can be transparent or not, you will have the power to penetrate without the need to let them know, without aggression and with the truth in your hands.

Life as you known could be changed

When you think that what dies ends in nothingness, meditate on what that person or beings who shared your life left on you as an indelible mark, not to suffer, but to leave them in another way and under other rules.

“In each journey of the world that we know almost nothing will remain forever, only what you manage to place on the tip of your arrow will have to reach considerable heights to illuminate the new horizon”
The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

Before the astonished gaze of the couple that formed Hora and Painani, the lightning illuminated the space they inhabited with a kind of spiral very similar to the snake that was travelling downstream in that piece of the trunk.

For both of them, the light of the Ray had been recreated in the serpent and drew it grandiloquently in the firmament, tearing the peaceful calm of the skies and in that way, he again sealed the pact that he promised to his custodian, even though he did not know the way. how it would be taken and at what time to the ends of the universe.

Hora had put his entire trust in the strength and power of the lightning that without words knew exactly how to make himself understood by the prophet and his beloved who was now part of that enchantment.

With tight lips Painani stared at the frank and happy smile of her beloved when he told her that the ray knew perfectly what it was doing, then she tried to articulate words and it was very difficult, she took a deep breath and after a while and before Hora’s attentive gaze exclaimed:

-I felt a deep fear that he would impede my way and make me see that I cannot be on his grounds or I cannot do anything, just accept that he has absolute control over what may happen and from the time that he decides and that made me feel devastated.

Hora looked at her tenderly and took her by the shoulders sighing at the moment that he pointed out:

-Don’t feel that you are facing a force that you cannot control, it is better to change the perspective of all that, realize what the Lightning did in the end, simply moved towards that place that we do not know and that may be the place where what we do now is taken advantage of, there are many places that we do not know that will have to take initiatives, it will depend on the strength of our talents to make people understand that there are glories among sorrows and there are good wills where people decide that it is not possible to do it in any other way and are driven to annihilate someone who is not like them, that’s what this is all about. 

Painani was reflective and understood that Hora was trying to tell her that he was an instrument just like her of something much greater, she hugged him tightly when she said in his ear:

-You are stronger than I thought, you were not afraid of losing me, you trusted in the force of the Lightning and now I understand that he will do nothing to take me but will put within my reach everything possible to keep me safe. I am an instrument of the teaching that we both build now.

Hora could not avoid the tears, a strong emotion seized him at the moment that he affirmed:

-You are Painani for something, the woman who knows the messenger and the secrets of the temple of the moon, for something you are the one who understands the value of duality, where what I am, you are and what you are for me I will be.

Let’s continue building what will be the inheritance for the house of the future!

Each step in the journey that both valued, defined, wrote and shared with the world in which they lived was the path where the clan that they formed with distant beings was enriched and with those who were close in the same way illuminated the understanding of their lives and the reason to protect the only light that stands out from the darkness, that of understanding where we are all the same essence within flesh and blood that will break with the passage of time and the only thing redeemable will be that light within each thought.

When you think that what dies ends in nothingness, meditate on what that person or beings who shared your life left on you as an indelible mark, not to suffer, but to leave them in another way and under other rules.
