This is the shaman controlled folly. What is stripped of so much confusion, product of the lack of energy, is "The warrior path". A warrior is a being suitable for war and is prepared through discipline, inflexible intent, self-control and tons of humility and wisdom. The war is against stupidity and arrogance, which suffocates and annihilate us. Personal history must be constantly renewed by telling parents, relatives and friends all one makes.

On the other hand, the warrior has no personal history, does not need to give explanations; no one gets angry or disappointed from his actions. And above all, nobody ties him down with thoughts and expectations. Death is our eternal companion. It is always on our left, an arm distance away from us. Death is the only wise counselor a warrior has. Every time the warrior feel that everything is wrong and that he is about to be annihilated, he can turn to his death and ask if this is true.

His death will tell him he is wrong, that nothing really matters except its touch. And, above all, deliberately avoid exhausting himself and others. A warrior does not use nor squeeze people until reducing them to nothing, especially the people he loves. When a man worries, desperately clings onto anything; and once he clings, necessarily he gets exhausted, or exhausts the thing or person that he is clinging.

A warrior hunter, on the other hand, knows that he will attract prey to his traps over and over again, so he does not worry. To worry is place oneself reachable, without knowing it.

A man, any man deserves whatever faith assigns to men: joy, pain, sorrow and struggle.

No matter his acts nature, provided he acts as a warrior. If his spirit is distorted, he should simply fix it, debugging and perfecting it, because there is no worthier task in life. Not fixing the spirit is to seek death, and that is equal to not seeking anything, because death is going to reach us anyway.

Searching for warrior spirit perfection is the only task worthy of our transience and our human condition. The warrior art is to balance the terror of being a man with the wonder of being a man. He says that it is an energy structure, such structure come from the ability to "see" energy. For this reason, "the warrior path" is a "superb conglomeration" of energy facts, irreducible truths exclusively determined by the energy flow direction in the universe.

Because without this wisdom, without this "methodology" the Toltec would not had been able to face the terrifying infinity mystery. It represents the archetype of physical and mental health, both for individuals and society. This is why, when the Mexica rules and laws of the 16th century are read, these are of a "Spartan" spirit character, which do not agree with human sacrifice and the Mexica "Florid wars " are a degenerated and degraded a shadow of the Toltec "Florid wars", in the classical period.

The common man seeks for certainty in the spectator eyes and calls it self-confidence.

To read Carlos Castaneda/15

The warrior seeks for impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humility. The common man is hooked to his peers, while the warrior is only hooked to infinity.

It is internal dialogue what binds people to the everyday world. The world is such and such way only because we tell ourselves that is such and which way. The passage to the shamans world opens when the warrior has learned to stop his internal dialogue. Our peers are black magicians. And whoever is with them is also a black magician, for sure. Think a moment. Can you divert from the path your peers have mapped for you? While you remain with them, your actions and thoughts are forever fixed on their terms.

That is slavery. The warrior, instead, is free from all that. Freedom is expensive, but the price is not impossible to pay. So fear your captors, your masters. Do not waste your time and your power afraid of freedom.

Human beings are perceivers, but the world they perceive is an illusion: an illusion created by descriptions told from the moment they were born. So the world that your reason wishes to sustain is, in essence, a world created by a description which has inviolable and dogmatic rules, rules that your reason learns to accept and defend. Only as a warrior can stand the knowledge path. A warrior cannot complain or regret anything. His life is a never-ending challenge, and there is no way that challenges can be good or bad.

Challenges are simply challenges. The warrior, as a teacher, teaches three techniques to his pupil to help him delete his personal history: losing the own personal importance, take responsibility for own acts and use death as a counselor.

Without the beneficial effect of these three techniques, erasing personal history makes one stealth, evasive and unnecessarily uncertain of himself and his actions. But mentions that more than detachment requires affection and abandonment. To efficiently penetrate this world, needs to be a cautious, restrained, indifferent warrior, tuned to the battles with the unknown.

And this is only achieved through forging the "warrior path". A warrior never disappoints himself when failing to change. It is the only advantage a warrior has over common man. The only freedom a warrior has is to behave impeccably. But impeccability is not his only freedom, but the only way to straighten human form.

The core of our being is the act of perceiving, and the magic of our being is the act of being conscious. Perception and consciousness are the same and an inseparable functional unit.

He mentions that she had the power and detachment necessary to refine it, in the finishing touches before the departure of the nagual Don Juan Matus.

In this text, Castaneda tells that one day he went to see a doctor over a fistula he had that due to a fall on a cactus a while back. He consulted Florinda on the matter and she tells him that a nagual has lost its power, if he requires a doctor to heal. This has to do with his "alleged cancer death". Of course that the nagual Castaneda did not die in in a hospital bed from liver cancer. It is also interesting to analyze what Castaneda says of the Don Juan disciples, who according to him, spent their time fighting over their ego manic outbursts and he defines them as an errant bunch.

This must be assessed, because if they worked hard for years with naguales such as Don Juan and Don Genaro, and yet, they fail to acquire sobriety and wisdom, what can be expected of us "readers".

That is why it is necessary to solidly set foot on the ground, and realize that dealing with the "warrior path", is an almost impossible task and that it is confined to very few people. That one thing is reading about the warriors and something very different is living as warriors.

Anyone who wants to follow the warrior path must be free from the compulsion to possess things and stick to them. When a warrior ceases to have any kind of expectations, people actions no longer affect him. A strange peace becomes the force that governs his life. He has adopted one of the warrior life concepts: detachment. A warrior is never besieged. Being besieged implies that one has personal possessions to defend.

A warrior does not have anything in the world except for his impeccability, and impeccability may not be threatened. The first stalking art principle is that warriors choose their battlefield. A warrior never enters a battle without first knowing the surroundings. Remove all unnecessary is the second stalking art principle.

A warrior does not complicates things. Searches for simplicity. Applies all his concentration to decide whether he enters a battle, because his life is at stake in every battle.

This is the third principle of the stalking art. A warrior must be willing and prepared to make his last stop here and now. But not without order or concert. A warrior relaxes and lets go; he does not fear anything. Only then the powers that guide human beings open the way for the warrior and help him. Only then.

This is the fourth stalking art principle. When faced with a superior force that cannot be fought, the warriors withdraw for a moment.

Let his thoughts run freely. Deal with other things. Anything can serve. This is the fifth stalking art principle. Warriors compress time; This is the sixth stalking art principle.

Even a single instant count. In a battle for their life, a second is an eternity, eternity which can decide victory. The warriors pursue success; therefore, compress time. Warriors do not waste even an instant. To apply the seventh stalking art principle one has to apply the other six: a stalker is never at the front. He is always watching from behind the scene.

Applying these principles produces three results. The first is that stalkers learn not to take themselves seriously: they learn to laugh at themselves. If they are not afraid of ridicule, they can ridicule anyone. The second is that stalkers learn to have inexhaustible patience. Stalkers are never in a hurry, never are concerned. And the third is that stalkers learn to have an inexhaustible capacity for improvisation. Castaneda and many of his readers, are lost between "the pseudo indian talk " that Castaneda wanted to hear, the inaccuracies on the nagual area and the lack of energy.

When the work is reviewed again and again, it is clear that the techniques to "sweep the tonal island", are the "critical path" to start feeling the Toltec teaching. The first thing that is required is "fixing the bad tonal state", we generally have, from our personal importance, behavior social patterns and "matter inertia" itself.

Wisdom without kindness and knowledge without sobriety are useless. Men greatest enemy is personal importance. What weakens is feeling offended by what peers do or fail to do. Personal importance requires that one passes the greater part of life offended by something or someone. Nothing can temper a warrior spirit better than the challenge of dealing with impossible people who occupy positions of power.

Only in such circumstances can warriors acquire the sobriety and serenity necessary to withstand the pressure of what cannot be known. A mature warrior must be a discipline paragon in order to overcome the almost invincible laxness of our human condition.

More important still than seeing is what warriors do with what they see. Impeccability begins with a single act, which has to be premeditated, precise and sustained.

If this event is repeated long enough, one acquires the sense of an uncompromising intent that can be applied to anything. If this is achieved, the way is clear. So, one thing leads to another until after the warrior develops his full potential. The worst that could happen is having to die, and given that this is already our unalterable fate, we are free; those who have already lost everything have nothing to fear.

In this way, it can be seen that after Don Juan and Don Genaro, Florinda Matus has a great influence in the construction of his warrior path. Castaneda takes the nagual Julian life as a reflection point, who was a libertine, vicious man and even a coward. But when he is about to die from his excesses, nagual Elias saves him and gives him a choice: either decide to dramatically change his life at once or will die. The nagual Elias warns him that he can never heal, will always have to walk on the edge of the abyss, that a false step, an error or a small abandonment or insubordination and irresponsibility display, will be the end.

The author says that he was shook, when discovering the fierce battle Julian always lived in. Step by step, he had to go to fight "his licentious inertia" and learned to walk "the warrior path" That is the mood needed to "straighten our deformed tonal". As this is "something special", not because we cannot do so, any human being has the ability, but because of our weakness, stupidity and lack of energy is immeasurable.

The easy and common, which is to fall in fantasy, consciousness alternate states induced by entheogens and disconnection from reality. Or on the other hand, can give us a life pattern through discipline, inflexible intent, moderation, and humility in our daily actions. Truly becoming human beings. Not as "reader-warrior", but as human beings aware of their limitations and knowing they are going to die, but with subtle nostalgia for the infinity.

This energy will allow him to manage some of the energy fields that normally are inaccessible. Shamanism is a consciousness state, the ability to use energy fields which are not used to perceive the everyday world as we know it.

The art of stalking consists of learning all the peculiarities of your disguise, and learn them so well that no one knows you are in disguise. To achieve this, you need to be ruthless, shrewd, patient and sweet. Being ruthless does not mean roughness, cunning does not mean cruelty, being patient does not mean neglect and being sweet does not mean stupid. Warriors act with an ulterior purpose that has nothing to do with personal advantage. The common man only acts if there is a gain possibility gain.

Warriors do not act for profit, but the spirit. The men problem is that he senses his hidden resources but does not dare using them.

This is why warriors say men problem is the counterpoint created by their stupidity and ignorance. Men needs now, more than ever, to be taught new ideas that have to do exclusively with their inner world; shaman ideas, not social ideas; ideas relating to men confrontation with the unknown, with his personal death.

Now, more than ever, needs to be taught the lace point secrets. But there is one that powerfully calls the attention.

In fact when Castaneda says: "Infinity will swallow me and I want to be prepared for it. I do not want infinity to dissolve me into nothing After much punishment they came before the death Lord, Mictlantecuhtli and told him they had completed the trip.

Then Mictlantecuhtli told them, "So well, your punishment is completed, go, then sleep you deadly sleep. Florinda sentences Castaneda, tells him that perhaps, when he becomes an immaculate nagual, you may outwit the Toltecs and their wisdom.

Or you may even renege Don Juan and Don Genaro. This is very interesting, as it totally breaks the probable dogmatic frame that might be contained in the "don Juan Teachings". So, ancient Mexico seems to be only made of archaeological areas, museums and boring books, and "tourist posters". Because it will be with the essence of that knowledge that we will build the 21st century Mexico.

To the Castaneda question regarding what he should do to become man of knowledge, Don Juan replies that he must challenge and defeat his "four natural enemies". Don Juan says that knowledge is never what we would expect.

At each step the apprentice is caught in a quagmire, and his fear grows without mercy Thus stumbles with its first natural enemy: He will be full of fear and, however, must not stop. Then the time will come when his first enemy withdraws. Men begins to feel self-assured.

His purpose becomes stronger and the learning task ceases to be terrifying. At that time men has beaten his first natural enemy This is his second natural enemy, clarity!

The clarity of mind may blind him because it forces him to have no doubts about himself. This security encourages him to do whatever he wants, because he sees everything clearly.

But clarity is a "power" illusion to which he can surrender; if he does, he will have succumbed to his second natural enemy and may not learn, due to his clumsiness. To avoid this he should challenge his clarity and wait patiently and cautiously before proceeding further; must think that his clarity can be an error.

Then comes the moment when he can understand that his clarity is only "a point in front of his nose". He will have thus defeated his second enemy. He will have reached a point where nothing can harm him. The desired power will be his at last. He may do anything he wishes with his power. He can dominate his ally and his wishes will be the rule. He will then encounters his third natural enemy: At this stage man can barely notice that his third enemy lurks.

See a Problem?

Suddenly, without knowing it, he will have succumbed in the battle. The power will make him cruel and capricious.

A man in such circumstances comes to death without actually handling his power. Men has to intentionally challenge his power. He must realize that conquered power is not actually his. If he manages to understand that without self-control, clarity and power are terrible enemies, he will reach the point where he will dominate everything.

He will know when and how he should use his power. He will then have defeated his third natural enemy. By this time men will be at the end of their knowledge path and, almost without noticing it, will face his last natural enemy: He will have lost fear to clarity and will no longer be impatient, all his power will be controlled, but he feels a constant desire to rest.

If he accepts his desire to relax and forget, lulled asleep by fatigue, his enemy will turn him into an old and weak creature. His clarity, power and knowledge will be defeated. If men can dust off fatigue and fulfills his destiny until it the end reaches, he may consider himself a man of knowledge, even if for only a few brief moments in which he manages to defeat his last enemy, one he may never overcome. Don Juan tells Castaneda that in life there are many ways to go, but a man, before embarking on a path, must be free of fear and ambition; then, he should question whether the path has a heart or not.

Once the question is made, he will know the answer. A path without a heart is never enjoyed; on the contrary, it turns against us and destroys us.


A path with a heart, on the other hand, it is not difficult to enjoy. The path without a heart throughout its way, gives us pain and anguish. The path with a heart gives us harmony and well-being. When Castaneda has his first encounter with the world of witchcraft, full of the most terrible fear decides to abandon learning.

His western conception of the world already lacked an absolute certainty. He thought that on his way to become a man of knowledge had succumbed to his first natural enemy. Now I know that I can accept your only desire as a good reason for learning I have secrets that I will not be able to reveal to anyone if I can't find my chosen I myself had a teacher, my benefactor, and I also became his chosen by performing certain feat.

He taught me everything I know It is a mistake to go in any other way to knowledge or war, and who does it will live to regret his steps A man who, without hurry, without hesitation has gone as far he can to untangle the secrets of power and knowledgeThank you, for helping us keep this platform clean.

A man, any man deserves whatever faith assigns to men: joy, pain, sorrow and struggle. It is imperative to stop feeling this way. Don Juan was trying with plants of power, to "shake" Castaneda and uncover his perception levels.
