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 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.

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.

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.

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.

All the stories are seeds

Over time both will be a symbol, life is constantly changing but the roots of the trees are ancient and we must trust them.

“Sometimes we tell ourselves the happiest story, precisely when no one can spoil it anymore”

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

Not all of us are capable of changing our stories, sometimes monsters return and place themselves in your dreams to interfere and obscure the process, then there are two ways to recognize them and leave them where they cannot hurt you again …

Painani listened carefully to Hora when he explained all this, suddenly she put her hand on his lips to silence him and ask:

-Hora, They are not always monsters, on many occasions, they are fascinating entities that leave a bright trail in your life, give you teachings and help you enjoy the journey of life. Do you think there are brightly wrapped in veiled entities that are mistaken for monsters?

Reflective Hora replied seriously:

-Life is diverse, not everyone lives the same, nor are they capable of understanding that another entity can exist under a veil. So they isolate themselves and can damage something that could be appreciated in their lives, they can also guide the monster to another path and be free, we do not know.

Something is important talking about the sowers of ideas, we are that and in the world, we address others in that way, to change their feelings towards something.

I remember perfectly that at the moment that a group of humans pointed me out as a prophet at that precise moment I understood that my life illuminated by the Ray would serve a cause much greater than myself and now I have someone like you to communicate all that, and I feel happy about it.

Painani remained meditative and with some concern, she asked again: 

-Beloved, can you assure that all stories are seeds?

With a frank smile, Hora admitted:

-Of course, I can do it, what I cannot assure you is that all the seeds would be able to fall on fertile ground, much less than these seeds when feeding a group, everyone understands the meaning of their fruits in the same way.

I’m going to tell you about something magical that happened to me in the jaguar’s trap, I had a dream that allowed me to see the earth as something transparent, as if instead of a well made in the earth it was a site at the bottom of a lagoon, what I could observe where the roots of the trees, they supported each other to move the sap, some stronger than others and some group, understanding that only among mangroves could they survive, I could see some red cedars doing the same and if you realize they were all seeds.

What I want to tell you is that the enlightened group will find a way to remain united and connect with those who strengthen their sap and the other groups that are gregarious will do the same and that cannot be avoided, for example, the mangrove drags a lot of water to the sap, that is not good for everyone, but it strengthens them.

Do not fear my beloved, some stories will know how to connect with those who deserve them and monsters and predators will not be able to annihilate them, if I succeed in making my prophet spirit prevail, it will stay for a long time feeding the spirit of the time, today I learn from you and you of me, what we will build is based on the few certainties with which we advance, if the root penetrates deeply into the land we inhabit, it will take care of the rest.

Painani, happily, exclaimed:

-Each tree is a messenger that illuminates the path of the one who knows how to recognize it… And they kissed with passionate joy to enjoy that gift that kept them together.

Over time both will be a symbol, life is constantly changing but the roots of the trees are ancient and we must trust them.

The Magic Symbols

When you discover that there is no master plan but a constant movement that surrounds you as part of the whole, you will understand what your role is in what commits you and for which you are made.

“The moment will come when you will understand that something of you has to remain forever and only then will it be easy for you to do what you have proposed without stopping to look at what you could lose on the way”

The Messenger

Painani talked while they shared the delicious bites of fish and reflected that it did not matter where in the world they were found since each human being is free to remember and consider their deities, venerate them and make them part of the environment, visible to the eyes of their own.

The grilled fish from Hora

Hora  looks at her thoughtfully and stroking her hair, he pointed out:

-The history of the peoples is creating and building their way of seeing the world, with their beliefs they get used to living within them, they are common places that give them security and a sense of permanence, That is why they teach them to their children to keep them together.

So they accept that things can only be one way and not another, but there is a big problem, what do you imagine it to be, my love?

Painani got up and taking a few laps around the campfire carefully reflect on what she was going to answer, when she felt ready she pointed out:

– All deities live in a magical space, humans use mystical symbols to understand them, but not everyone has the opportunity to cross the portal between the two worlds.

Hora with a frank smile said:

– That’s right, there are privileges in people like you, a disciple of Erandi’s circle of enlightened and ascended, and like me, protected and custodian of the Ray. All other beings respect or follow those who cause magic but not all know how to interpret it and they limit themselves to respecting and repeating it.

The question remains unanswered, common people recognize themselves in the stories of their deities, they even attribute a different qualification to them: Gods, they take them as an example and try to imitate their feats and their teachings, many of them rigorously, they do not modify anything, even if they do not know who it was that recreated the scenario that they now follow.

Now tell me, what do you see, what do we see that others don’t understand?

– None of us consider ourselves protectors of what does not move, it is not possible to accept the static, Erandi does not belong like us to the group that venerates and preserves, that is the reason why she saved me from death on the stone of the sacrifice.

Hora excitedly jumped up and exclaimed happily:

– That is why you are here my beloved, your task is to save others from their need to remain with fixed ideas and repeat them, that is why you are so special to me from the moment I sensed the heartbeat of your heart despite the distance that separated us.

You have to know that the lightning when it realized that it was time to move, did not let me think twice and pushed me in the best way that its nature knows, it did it in such a way that I had no choice and now I understand why it was so.

We notice that in some way he is explaining what has to happen in those matters that cannot be postponed in life that does not stop for anything and anyone; do not know if it was in a new attempt to prepare for what would come, but Painani is intuitive and therefore not left unanswered her couple:

-Hora, we are not going on this world totally, we are part of the group that would transmute,  that is my hope and in it, I trust that all my preparation should not be in vain, those who have shown us the way are proof that it is so and not otherwise.

Even far from my group, my training tells me that I will be able to cross the Mictlán portal.

That said, she looks at him tenderly and they both embraced, realizing that their understanding of transcendence was working even when there are situations that cannot be part of any premonition and neither be part of a plan cleverly devised for our benefit.

When you discover that there is no master plan but a constant movement that surrounds you as part of the whole, you will understand what your role is in what commits you and for which you are made.

The splinters of the flint and the deity with the headdress of fire

With those who have shared your days, you will recognize enduring teachings that can transform your life when everything becomes difficult and you feel that your course is not the same.

“What good is flint in pieces to you? If you do not know that it can be useful in many ways, you will never know, your analytical gaze will be lost thinking that what you had is no longer useful “

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

Now we go back to that place where they coexist and have fun meeting Painani and Hora, at that time They needed her flint knife to be sharp, the right-handed couple of Painani prepared to hit it with another stone to achieve a suitable edge, but to do so he blindfolded himself and Painani was very surprised by this attitude and asked:

-I don’t understand how is possible that it could be well sharpened if you do not see what you are doing

Hora removed the bandage from his eyes and affirmed:

-If a splinter penetrates my eyes then I will never be able to see what I am doing, neither your beautiful face and much less the wonderful landscape that surrounds us, I also need the shards to show you something unique.

Painani smiled and realized that Hora was indeed a very wise man and she waited patiently. When he had finished sharpening the flint knife, Hora prepared to place the fragments of the precious dark glass on a large leave and said:

-Come, my darling, accompany me to the river and you will see that what I am telling you is impressive.

They both walked to the river and Hora took a fist from the splinters and dropped them into the water, some were carried by the current and others of a larger size sank and got stuck between the stones, at that moment Hora warned:

-When you have a tool powerful, each of its pieces will be the same, in the water they are a danger to the living beings that inhabit the site, but if I place a net downstream I will have fish that will have died by the flint and not by my hand.

It is the deity with the headdress of fire that is the only one that can penetrate the skin of the river with its reflection, she makes the flint sparkle.

Having said this, he took Painani by the hand and led her to where the litter had dried in another part of the forest and placed splinters of the flint, I waited next to his beloved and said:

-The highest, perfect and intense point of the Lord the one you venerate and that I contemplate as the deity of the fiery headdress will do its work. (1)

Indeed, when the sun shone at its highest point with great intensity, the dry leaves began to burn and Hora surrounded them with several stones to contain his strength.

Then he went downstream where he had set a trap while they waited for the work of the deity of the fire headdress and he raised his net with various fish, which he brought to the bonfire and prepared to cook them.

Surprised Painani exclaimed:

-We have honoured the virtues of the flint utilizing which Huitzilopochtli saw the light when tearing the belly of the moon and your deity has summoned the forces of water and earth to feed us.

Hora smiled and happily warned:

When you see the magic in the elements that you thought had lost it, your path and mine will be great, you will learn that in the transformation the essence remains, I need you to know it perfectly, that way you will have to perceive me, and you will do it with the elements you work with.

Without a doubt, Hora said this recognizing that the day would come that his transformation would make her lose her way, we do not know if she understood it, but at least it remained in her mind as something to remember when necessary.

With those who have shared your days, you will recognize enduring teachings that can transform your life when everything becomes difficult and you feel that your course is not the same.

“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

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

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.
