From our previous post we learned a little about Carlos Castaneda and his background. While a controversial figure in his own right, it is clear there is a golden thread of truth woven throughout Castaneda’s work. Something rings true about Don Juan’s ‘Creed of the Warrior’. The way of the warrior looms large in any discussion of Don Juan’s philosophy. Don Juan’s teaching is based on an ancient Toltec’s warrior way of thought. The Way of the Warrior could teach a young sorcerer how to think, talk, and act appropriately, in every possible situation.
According to Don Juan’s teachings, humans are pure energy. You and I are in fact swirling balls of light energy. The Toltec process of ‘seeing’ allows the seer to experience how things really look, that is, the totality of our reality can be observed. When your skills at ‘seeing’ progress to the choice moment you can observe people as luminous balls of light and energy. The central part of the luminous egg swirls either clockwise or counterclockwise. All the while emitting luminous strands of light from somewhere in the egg’s mid-section. You can ‘see’ that some luminous eggs connect with other luminous eggs in a strange transference of light energy.
