“Red and Blue Raven” by Toltec artist Don Voss at RavenCircle.org)
One way to perceive things within the human perceptive framework is in terms of seeing energy emanating from the luminous “egg” of human awareness – as paraphrased from the mystic philosopher and Toltec shaman Carlos Castaneda:
- “Dreamers” are able to shift the activated bundle of fibers of awareness in the form of an “assemblage point” to different positions in the human energy egg to different positions associated with certain worlds or experiences.
- “Stalkers” (no, this has nothing to do with stalking people or things) are able to “stalk”, or fixate, the shifted energy perception. Stalkers are people who are able to stop the assemblage point from moving (as a result of the act of dreaming) in order to assemble entire worlds within the band of human perception,
From this point, an explorer could have a solidified real-m in which to explore.
(See the accompanying art depicting a human able to perceive a change in the world in which one is traveling in the form of a raven. Or… better yet… neither as human nor raven, but sheer perception itself.)
Both stalking and dreaming work hand in hand. One is worthless without the other. Where people are usually born with a mixture of stalking and dreaming abilities, the primary limitation here is in truly being within one’s sense of personal power, and the volume of energy we work with or develop.
“What we need to do to allow magic to get hold of us is to banish doubts from our minds. Once doubts are banished, anything is possible.”
– Carlos Castaneda – The Power of Silence)
Thus… Be a human being. Be within your personal power.
NOW… Take everything I have written here and throw it entirely in the trash, because the language I’ve used here is limited, the ideas they point to entail a limited perception and as beloved Dolores Cannon said:
“Perception is containment.”
Nothing beats the actual experience…
