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 “

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”

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.

Hora, paid special attention to the remembrance that related Painani when she observed him return to shore of the lake, she commented:

-I was watching your return to the shore of that lake with my labored breath, you did it gently without haste, giving you all the time in the world as if hoping that I would be less anxious upon your arrival.

The swaying of the waves made me reflective, that constant movement within that site that possibly has its channel heading towards a space that we do not know.

At that moment I wondered about the motivations of life, the events that have united us and those words that you said to the Ray, alerted me and at the same time I felt an attachment that I do not like to feel for you.

Hora, surprised, looked at her without understanding what the idea of ​​not wanting to feel attached to someone who loved her really meant and replied:

-It is one thing that Ray is helping me to show you a path that I intuit and in which I am looking for meaning and another very different is that when the 13 months are over I should leave, at least I don’t think this is so.

But what Rayo knows, obviously I do not know, perhaps he feels that his mission and mine on earth is limited to that, to fulfill the task that I have proposed, then he will disappear in a way that only Ray knows … What would you like to ask the Ray if that happens?

Remember clearly that he is not human, he is a powerful force, with an electrifying talent, but he moves on impulse and is somewhat gross, he does not take things with human limits, it is not possible, he cannot do it but I can ask him to.

Painani was thoughtful and did not know what to ask, in fact the question itself took her by surprise, frowning she replied: 

“I depend on a brute force to agree to grant a favor?” Perhaps his outburst does not understand subtleties, the truth is I do not know what I can ask him, I will think about it.

Hora took her by the hands and placed them between hers, large warm, and kissing her and  warned her:

-My beloved, every magician has the power to tame the forces that govern nature, just think what you have asked of him in infinity occasions to the Sun, as much as we admit that he can do whatever he wants, for me, that image, wears a golden headdress and is a divine lady with great power and for you, he is represented as the feared warrior Huitzilopochtli.

Before our eyes they carry the aspect with which we dress our dreams and sometimes even on a cloudy day we can feel their light and talent, we are the beings who understand them best.

Painani looked at his beloved with an illuminated smile and understood what he meant, however, she took time to think with total certainty what she would ask of the daring and euphoric Lightning.

Sometimes you will have a huge force before you and you will not know that with a certain talent on your part, you can tame it and achieve what no one would dare to do.

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.

Today you will know your limits

Life has limits and death is one of them, sometimes understanding that you cannot go any further is raw reality, inevitable and real.

“They say that nature is wise, it also has its own rules and moves with a dynamic that will not always be in favour of humans, it can be cruel when you least expect it and decisive when it decides that a cycle has to end., you can do nothing unless magic accompanies you on the journey, possibly so you can make a difference ”

The Messenger

Painani and Hora lived under the effects of the new moon and recognized in their strength that changes would come that they would have to accept, in no time. They realized that the drastic moment they would live and that would make them recognize their limits, especially as a couple, not as individuals within the world that saw them learn and grow during the experiences.

It was thus that sunny morning Hora entered the lagoon that was near the palm hut that they had been built to share life, Painani distractedly preparing utensils for food when she heard that the waters in the peaceful lagoon were stirring violently, When she turned her gaze to observe what was happening, she realized that her man was surrounded by a large snake, she was holding him immobile in the water and the man was trying, by all means, to get rid of that enormous force.

Deftly she took her flint knife and ran to reach it and nail the weapon to the snake, but she was surprised when her path to enter the water was impeded by a bolt of lightning that appeared out of nowhere and planted in front of her feet on the edge of the pond, the woman fell backwards and the knife flew overhead until it was lost in the nearby bushes.

She immediately realized that it was not a matter where she could intervene and she just watched what would happen, suppressing her desire to scream in desperation.

Hora,  was able to liberate his arms from the snake and raised them in search of answers from his custodian and protector the powerful  lightning … A few minutes passed before the lightning appeared again pointing to a nearby branch and with a single impact the wood dropped into the lagoon when that log arrived near Hora, he was able to place the snake on that strong branch that floated in the water and pointed out:

-May our lives, lady snake, unity in the face of despair, may both in their differences be the reason to celebrate a new moment in the teachings that I will give to my beloved, today we have both understood that there will be situations where we will not be of help to each other and for my part, I understand that in your jaws, lady Snake, I don’t have to finish my days.

Looking up he said:

I appreciate your signal lord of the electrifying light, somehow you defended the lives of the three involved at this moment, I understand that the snake is the symbol that I will be able to deliver to the month that is about to begin and its strength must shine in the spaces that I do not know and that is in the world of the stars that illuminate our nights and that remain there even when the sun prevents us from seeing them.

Today we know that each culture observed from its special perspective and way of seeing things a snake in the high sky, the constellation of Ophiuchus and that this is to a fortunate coincidence, by his part  Hora and his mystical relationship with lightning would have reasons to appoint the serpent as the representative of the following month and with this, he would again seal his promise to give his beloved one year turned into thirteen fabulous and enriching teachings.

Let us remember the exact phrase that he says to Painani when he met her:

“I will turn one year of your life into an experience in 13”

Life has limits and death is one of them, sometimes understanding that you cannot go any further is raw reality, inevitable and real.

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.

The uncertainty before the silence of the feelings

Let the hours of preparation be what gives you a glimpse of what you intuit and not otherwise.

“A broken heart usually presents itself when the information you receive is what they let you see, not what it is”

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

In the temple of the moon, they receive Erandi who was penetrated in that trip astral that showed her an exceptional reality and with which her communication and magic networks would expand considerably.

Upon arrival, she found joy among her disciples and a veil of sadness in one of the enlightened women, precisely the one who travelled to the Otomi lands to celebrate the fertility ritual of the full moon, I mean Metztli.

Erandi took her by the shoulder and separated her from the group to find out what was keeping her tense and unsettled, suffering from something in particular, and asked her:

-Dear Metztli, what keeps you down and anxious?

Metztli with great tribulation commented to the priestess of the  Moon´s Temple:

-I am not sure that he can recognize me, that what we had in our soul, it wouldn’t be the same when we will see each other physically and maybe everything collapses, it worries me because I like him.

Erandi looked at her tenderly and with soft words expressed what she could say to her and that at no time could be decisive or accurate:

– Talk, to make some decision and imagine, create the balance, you do not have to worry, if he is unable to see beyond what they had is not for you; There are two options in all this, take the heart and immerse it in the storms of passion or let it sail in the calm waters of reason if you manage that balance,  you can expect what comes with confidence.

It is not you alone choosing, there are two souls in this and uncertainty is part of life, it always turns around everything that exists and surrounds us. Remain calm and surround yourself with good thoughts, the choice may have already been made, you do not know what he is thinking, remember that the richness of the soul does not shine outside but inside every living being.

We still do not know who he is, perhaps those who have followed the story without missing any details can guess who is the possible Metztli couple, whose meaning of her name is Moon of the water serpent.

Painani will have in a few days the first warning of the power of the only one who will have between them the last word.

Meanwhile, in the place where Hora and Painani remain, a relevant event will take place that will mark the sky with another type of snake in a few days, the time is approaching when the moon in the sky is hidden from everyone’s view and it is a perfect atmosphere. so that predators go out at night without being seen.

The confident Hora knows that the determining and energetic light of the ray will always be present in every event that prevents what he has agreed with the astute prophet, but Painani does not know it, she will have in a few days the first warning of the power of the only one who will have between them the last word.

But it is still too early to talk about this, since everything is gestated in due course and not before or after.

Let the hours of preparation be what gives you a glimpse of what you intuit and not otherwise.

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

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

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.

“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.
