“Toltec” means simply a man or woman of knowledge; so, by the term “Toltec teachings” we refer to a set of TOOLS that these beings of knowledge put together to assist their fellow human beings first in learning how to APPRECIATE Life and second in MAKING the BEST out of each individual life-time. These tools are at the disposal of EVERY single one of us. Actually, they constitute our birthright and all we need to do in order to exercise this our right is to just CLAIM it! To all intents and purposes, these teachings ARE humanity’s heritage.
As I was pondering regarding the second part of our communication, I came across the article that I am sharing below. It literally blew my mind and I felt what better way to follow up our communication than to LISTEN to the Female?
To be a warrior means that you can survive the machinations of power – an act which only becomes possible through listening to the heart. In order to listen to the heart you must follow your feelings; but as with anything that a warrior does, and which holds true power, listening to the heart appears to be so insignificant and trivial that average man never deems it worthy of his attention. Average man regards his view of the world, and acting within the context of that view, as infinitely superior to listening to the heart. Only by erasing personal history can one begin to see and eliminate the restraints of one’s view of the world.

WITHOUT A FLUIDITY OF PERCEPTION THE ONLY PERSONAL POWER YOU CAN GAIN IS THAT TINY BIT OF POWER PRESCRIBED BY THE LIMITATIONS OF YOUR VIEW OF THE WORLD. YET IN ORDER TO GAIN A FLUIDITY OF PERCEPTION YOU MUST FIRST CLAIM THE POWER THAT IS WITHIN YOUR GRASP. WITHOUT POWER YOU CANNOT HUNT POWER.
The assumptions that we made about life yesterday will not necessarily hold tomorrow. And as life shifts very rapidly both internally and externally, one has move very swiftly to dance with the unpredictable universe.
Théun, why do you never mention happiness, other than the book you wrote about this topic? But even then you referred to it as being elusive.
What I have written here is part of a project to introduce humanity to their natural heritage in the form of the Toltec Teachings. The Toltec Teachings have been passed down orally from generation to generation until recently. They are now available to everyone in written format in the books written by Théun Mares. Théun Mares also created a website where a huge amount of his guidance is held and this online facility is also available to everyone.
The only worthwhile change there is, is to change our knowledge of self, a change we initiate with recapitulation, and through the insights gained from our recapitulation, coming to the point where we realise full well that the only way forward is to erase our personal history by stalking our perception of self, which by definition means not-doing.
I suspect that most of our folly has to do with not using the Warrior’s Shield properly? Am I right in thinking this?
