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.

“The most lucid vision of the future will reach you and you will understand what each mystery is about, placed before your eyes”

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

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.

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.

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 Celestial Symphony (Reflection)

Every symphony orchestra requires coordination, will and discipline, but let us see each human being as part of the whole and at the same time as in charge of an instrument to share with humanity with a great harmony

“Each moment consists of different energies, take advantage of them in the best way; then rise above all problems, move away and analyze what you see clearly from above, there is the answer to your question “

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

Let us remember the words said to Painani by Hora:

” The world that lives above us would have been left without that image to be able to transform something unique according to their own cultures and traditions. “

This phrase carries various connotations, if we look at the structure that Hora is creating with the help of the Lightning, we perceive that what we see in our territory like an animal of power, when reaching the top, as far as possible and penetrating the world of the stars becomes what my mental structure can conceive and I am not the same inhabiting different latitudes on the earth plane.

However, I am going to marvel in the same way no matter where I am when the crescent moon appears before me with bright Venus on one side and I am fully aware that another human far from me in another country or continent will be looking at the same thing.

Crescent moon and Venus

Now, as the Messenger says:

“Go away and analyze what you see clearly, there will be your answer”

For all of us, the cultures of the planet are different, not all of them understand each other, the diversity of beliefs makes us unique and in this way, we preserve our identity, but since ancient times when looking at the sky, we can identify the astral zoo as a legacy of humanity for future generations that will inhabit the Earth and to share with those who visit us in the future and who will undoubtedly they do not know that fabulous fabric in the celestial vault. Of course, it would be very poor to think that in other systems with one Sun or two at the centre, life does not exist, at least I refuse to accept it as an immovable truth.

Let’s go a little further with the phrase from Hora: “The world that lives up there” and now let’s reflect by adding that of the Messenger: “From above, analyze what you see.”

With these two phrases, it is true that everyone who moves away to look at the reality that we are from another perspective, will admire the Earth from a silent place, they will see it as the inhabitants of the International Space Station like a beautiful blue globe, without borders, with rivers and diverse nature, surrounded by a transparent layer of atmosphere.

With this reflection, I want to emphasize that anyone who sees the Earth from space will admire the unity and richness of a fortunate world located in a strategic place from which life made its way.

At the moment the International Space Station is one of the places where the celestial symphony is created, I do not mean anything angelic, I mean that heaven is the place where humanity is twinned, there it does not matter the mixture of genes of which you are formed, the race or the language you speak, you are a human working in unity with other beings who are committed to a high feeling that we call science, they are a group of instrumentalists who, following certain indications, achieve fascinating compositions.

That is why the human being of all times has felt a special admiration when looking at the stars and imagining that they are their reflection, that they can access them to look from above what they can see.

The future of humanity is attracted by the high heaven, for some cultures, it is the heaven of eternal rest, for others, it is the world where all those who fought for their ideals have to receive a lavish banquet, for the Lords of Light it is the place where they will meet those who already inhabit that space without limits and borders, as immaterial beings where they create strategies to enhance the spirit of men who in terrestrial life need to exalt their humanistic values, they are the defenders of that vital energy that transforms us in something more than flesh and blood beings with primary needs inhabiting the Earth.

Of course, we Asgardians are looking to the future in a habitat in Earth orbit as the possibility of extending the expectations of survival to the inhabitants of the Earth and with a different dynamic, learning to look at ourselves from above as what we are, just humanity, one whole peacefully sharing life, ideas, culture and traditions.

Every symphony orchestra requires coordination, will and discipline, but let us see each human being as part of the whole and at the same time as in charge of an instrument to share with humanity with a great harmony

Unconditional?

Never feel that your hands have been tied, even in the thickest darkness, you will always find a way to see the light and use it to your advantage.

“Letting out what we are is sometimes very difficult, we become strong when we are weaker; What logic guides what we are and feel? “

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

Painani’s rebellion grew with the passing of the days, she did not understand that attitude of unconditionality that Hora maintained in the face of the Lightning’s designs and therefore her anger grew more and more at every moment.

Especially since she had fought against the established with the patriarchs of her homeland, who even sacrificed human lives to please the deities.

Few things ignite our hearts and Hora was one of her great passions, despite recognizing that life is made by different paths, she had linked hers to that of that person.

Outside forces now imposed their rules and she was ready to go into battle. For Painani, what she firmly believes in, even with closed eyes, she had to defend herself, so she set out to try to understand that dark and dense space that made her weak and for which she felt powerless.

-Hora, why are you unconditional of the Lightning?

The man who loved her looked at her attentively, he knew that she would not accept evasions:

-Honoring promises is a virtue, in our position, not everyone behaves with nobility, fear paralyzes. There are times when you will realize that only your intuition will understand what this is all about.

I am not talking about a scammer who snoops to take advantage of me, it is a supernatural force that I asked for advice and the lighting, with its force, will do everything to comply with the rules of our agreement, just like me…

Painani was still obfuscated and she snapped:

The Lightning

“If those rules stopped serving you, what would you do?”

Hora looked at her thoughtfully and added:

-The skills I possess are his gift, being able to talk to you and make myself understood without being Nahua, recognize the voices of the wind, perceive your presence in the distance, look under the veil of simple reality, all of this is part of the gifts that the lighting of the thunder has given me.

Hora lowered his head and crossed his hands as he pointed out:

-You make me doubt and meditate, if perhaps a normal life without so many flights would have made me happy, perhaps I would not have known you, understanding your words would not have been so simple; possibly the water snake would have devoured me and the world that lives above us would have been left without that image to transform something unique according to its traditions and cultures.

Not everyone has the fortune to see what we have seen, what we have both shared,  somehow my friendship with the Lighting is not something you should be jealous of. I do not know what else to tell you.

Painani with those sincere words of Hora realized that she was comparing her inseparable friend the Lighting with how the Tlatoanis saw the deities and he felt that he had been wrong.

Between the Lightning and Hora, there was a creative agreement, it was not a submissive position of accountability and collection of human lives in exchange for preserving an immeasurable power where the priest of the temple would be willing to do anything to obey his master, the deity.

Then she looked at him steadily and affirmed:

-Now I recognize the difference between the forces that accompany you and those that I have suffered in the past, therefore I only see one way: Take control.

Hora embraced her with a smile at the moment he exclaimed:

“Is that your request for the Lightning?”

Painani with great seriousness asserted:

I have no idea how, but my duty is with the light, I owe myself to it and the truth dwells in it. You already told me that it is a brutal force, difficult to tame but it can be a tool in the skilled hands of magic.

Never feel that your hands have been tied, even in the thickest darkness, you will always find a way to see the light and use it to your advantage.

Painani´s song

Maturing is a path that not everyone structures in the same way, there are places where they form and transform you, if perhaps your rebellion is not willing to enter that territory, you will choose the most winding and adventurous way  until you discover that the best school in life is your path.

“It is not necessary to fight against what cannot be avoided, something will be revealed to you, the apprentice does not know what the master knows, that is your destiny.”

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

Take control!

Why me?

I have asked myself constantly …

I have no answers, I don’t know who could explain to me

I depend on an unknown force

I wander from darkness to gloom

No answer explains what happens

All I want is to take control and

go ahead

All voices revolve around, they’re mirrors of smoke

When I get closer they are shattered …

Someday I’ll know why it happened to me

and at last to take control

This happens at the moment that Painani wakes up restlessly at dawn and observes her beloved Hora who is sleeping pleasantly by her side, she looks at him carefully and realizes that she does not see him sleeping in the hammock that he values ​​so much but in the edge of a sword.

She remembers the words that were said before going to sleep and she has to understand that things are like that and not otherwise and again it will be magic that saves moments of anguish.

Hora took her by the shoulders and stared at her when he pointed out:

-The only difference between us is that I know who will make me disappear from this plane in which I exist as a living being, but like you, I do not know the how and the when.

Painani sighed and did not answer anything when Hora questioned her:

For you there is someone who takes care of that in general terms, right?

-Yes, the lords who reign the death world: Mictlantecuhtli, Lord of the Underworld, together with Mictecacihuatl, who lives on the 9th level of Mictlán, she takes care of the bones of every being that has left life.

To which Hora pointed out:

-That lady must be a brave and attractive deity, the moment he kissed her and with a big yawn he went to sleep like a child placed in the hands of the universe.

It was then that she answered insistently moving Hora’s heavy body that was sleepy:

-How can you accept in such a good way ceasing to be what you are, when you know that I am a survivor of the death that had been agreed upon in a sacrifice?

Hora looked at her with bewilderment and pointed out:

– Sorry my love, I did not want to hurt your feelings, something is evident, nobody leaves on the eve and the most important thing is that even though life teaches you little, it is your only opportunity to express it, to share all that you learned.

In our case, we are fortunate we have been enlightened with something that not everyone understands and that connects us with something special. So my good advice, my beloved, is that you live and let life flow and when it ends, allow the energies to be recycled with that world that we do not know and that will lead us to a new adventure.

Again he kissed her and caressed her back when he said now come and sleep with me, but she refused to enter the hammock and sang in silence what her intimate and very personal feeling dictated. Her path will take her through a painful learning process until she understands that we are not in control of everything and it never happens the way we want and desire, precisely because we are not all made of the same substance, we do not inhabit the same dreams, although life we can be surprised over time.

Maturing is a path that not everyone structures in the same way, there are places where they form and transform you, if perhaps your rebellion is not willing to enter that territory, you will choose the most winding and adventurous way  until you discover that the best school in life is your path.

Dependence?

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.

 “Everything immovable drags you and compels you to inertia, you must reject it, it is absurd to follow what has been paused”

The Messenger

By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa

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.

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.
