Toltec nagualism, as a particular form of Central American mysticism, is based on the myth of the Eagle as Creator and Lord of Life and Death. The Eagle is said to give life to humans, consume them after death, appropriate their experiences, and then dissolve them in himself. The only exception is the so-called Warriors, who:
1. abandon their Importance (and Poorness, since these are two sides of the same delusion of their superiority and inferiority) through a special way of life and demanding exercises,
2. increase their power,
3. collect all the energy wasted on various nonsense and become energetically whole,
4. they shift their Common Point of Attention from the everyday man to the Place of Silence and thus become an Abstract Being,
4. by recapitulating or thoroughly reviewing their life, they create a copy of their life for the Eagle,
5. they transform their physical bodies into luminous bodies of pure energy by recalling their waking dreams and thereby activating the focal points that arise each time they wake up, and then
6. fly past the Eagle into Freedom.
The myth of the Eagle says that the Eagle appreciates the Warriors and their efforts, accepts their copy of life in place of real life and lets them pass by into the Unknown.
We can see that the Toltec myth is very similar to the Christian claim that god creates the soul at birth. Since the incarnation, which speaks of life before life, incarnation into the present life, and multiple lives, was excluded from the Bible, they also had to adapt the story of the soul, which does not live before life, but is created by god at birth. The churchmen excluded the incarnation to gain absolutist control over the earthly life of believers. They have reduced their many past and future lives in which to make amends for their sins to one, here and now, now or never, given them only one opportunity to serve the Church, god, and Jesus, and have squeezed them tightly between two fires – the terrible, angry, and vengeful Yahweh and the equally evil Satan, god’s twin black brother. Since Yahweh is already the real devil, there is not much difference between him and Satan.
The Toltec myth of the Eagle is also very similar to the religion of the New Age god of Oneness, who split into several humans and animals to learn about himself through different experiences. When he has completed his self-discovery, he will draw all humans and animals back into himself and become the One and Only again.
From both these similarities, it is well evident that the karmic scriptwriters who invented both of the above religions did not have much imagination, as many religions are just variations of their predecessors. So it is with Christianity, which is a patchwork from many other religions, complete with “virgins”, “immaculate births” and dates. Despite the obvious and poor copy of the ancient Egyptian story of Horus, it does not bother the Christians that Christianity is just a reworking of previous religions because their faith in the sacred fiction is stronger than the many concrete proofs that the Way of the Cross is just fake kitsch.
Toltec nagualism is just another karmic religion
The biggest karmic scam is the false image of nagualism, which is supposed to be real, mystical, and exotic. Interestingly, many readers of Castaneda’s books believe in the myth of the Eagle, even though it is clear that it is only a copy of the myth of the Creator and the god of Oneness. The karmic scriptwriters have also written karmic scripts for the incarnants of Don Juan and Carlos Castaneda, associating them in advance as “teacher” and “disciple” and inserting everything necessary for them to play their roles. After their deaths, they were met by the karmicons, made to review their lives, and then turned into their incarnants. The process of changing one human being into another is very simple. The deceased, who has reviewed his life, is seated at a table and forced to watch the scenes on a monitor on the wall, and while watching, is literally turned into his incarnant. The man disappears and an incarnate appears in his place, who is then sent home.
If you are over 50 and like to read books, you probably remember what a sensation Carlos Castaneda’s books were, in which he described his encounters and companionship with Don Juan, a nagual, or sorcerer, who had superpowers. After the publication of Carlos’s books, thousands of Americans across Mexico were said to have sought out Don Juan to become his disciples. They were to cross many mountains and valleys, searching in villages and towns, but no one was able to find him. This is one of the reasons why many critics have accused Carlos of making the whole thing up and of saying that Don Juan does not exist. Despite the criticism and the lack of evidence for Castaneda’s claims in his books, his books have been read by millions of people all over the world.
As I write in my book Where are Don Juan and Carlos Castaneda?, in which I describe the comparison between the ancient Toltec system and my model for awakening and personal development, there are several very useful and helpful exercises in his books. As with all exercises, it is very important to practice them and to practice them regularly. In nagualism, the basic exercise is to stop the mind and achieve inner silence. In my model, observing the thoughts and stopping the mind is also a fundamental and most important exercise at the beginning of personality development, except that in my model, while in silence, we take it a step further and become aware of Pure Awareness, or become aware that we are aware.
Notwithstanding the many useful and helpful exercises in Castaneda’s books, most of the readers of his books, and people who are “into spirituality” in general, are just ordinary “couch warriors” who think that if they watch a “spiritual” video or read a “spiritual” article or book that they are already “spiritually” evolved. They think that if they understand what is being said, that’s it and they don’t need to practice. They could not be further from the truth, because understanding the words is nothing more than understanding the meaning of the words, but not yet the meaning of the message, which can only be understood through personal and concrete experience. You can read all the books and articles about strawberries, but until you try one, you will know nothing about strawberries. The same is true for personal development, where reading books and articles and watching videos is just information about different models of personal development, but the most important part is, of course, the concrete practice.
The reason for this behavior of the “couch warriors” is, of course, a lack of understanding of the importance of personal development, laziness, and indulging in harmful habits. This is also true of the readers of Castaneda’s books, for whom the main and, for 99.9%, the only “spiritual practice” is to quote Don Juan’s statements that they have read in the books. They say one quote and then imagine that they understand what has been said and that they are therefore “Warriors” themselves. Ha, ha, ha. They are just the quoters and no Warriors.
Belief in quotes
I am a member of several Carlos Castaneda Facebook groups and I can see from the comments or quotes of most of them that they are not practitioners, they are just believers in the Church of Carlos Castaneda. Instead of feeling sorry for themselves, they are on their knees – even when they are standing – begging for prayers and making abundant crucifixions, as the Christians do, they quote. The repetitions of Don Juan’s quotations from Castaneda’s books are their prayers. They get this far and no further. The very useful and helpful exercises are too tiring for them, so they content themselves with quotations. They like more talking about the strawberries than the strawberries themselves. Like the Christians, when they utter a prayer and then place everything in god’s hands, the Castanedans utter a quotation and imagine that the Eagle will let them pass by when the time of their death comes. Ha, ha, ha.
One such quote is a well-known paraphrase of the old Slovenian and discriminatory saying, “He who does not work, let him not eat!” (I prefer the version “Whoever does not work, at least let him eat!”): “Nothing in the world is a gift. Whatever must be learned, must be learned the hard way.” This is, of course, just the karmic lie that life is hard and that suffering is necessary for life. It is true that in personality development it is necessary to practice, but my practices are very simple, easy, and understandable, unlike those of the Christians, which do not exist, or those of the Toltecs, which are also life-threatening.
Quoting or repeating prayers is not helpful for personal development, but only more harmful, giving the believer the false image of being a good believer who tries hard and then imagines that he should be rewarded for his “spirituality”. As a system for personal development, Christianity is useless and is a formula for personal decline. Christopher Hitchens, in a YouTube video, lists dozens of crimes committed by the Christian Church, proving that it is an Evil, criminal and terrorist organization that has caused the evilest in human history. The Crusades, the Inquisition, the witch-hunts, the Conquistadors, forced conversions to Christianity, collaboration with fascists and Nazis, hatred of homosexuals, sexual abuse, and the selling of indulgences – ha, ha, ha, what a mess – etc.
Understandably, such an organization cannot be a role model for anyone, let alone have a personal development system to help people let go of harmful behaviors and old Ego personalities and create new, honest, kind, friendly, and loving personalities for themselves. The Pope, starting with the Head, the Cardinals, the Bishops, and the Priests are as corrupt today, if not more so than they have been in the history of the Church. The Internet is burning up with news of the criminal acts of the Church and its members. There are thousands of sexual abuse lawsuits in the courts, numbering hundreds of thousands of abused children in one country and one period alone. Based on the solid evidence of the Church’s history of violence and sexual abuse, I can safely say that the Church is not an organization that benefits people and helps them in their personal development, but is an extremely harmful group of personality-impaired, conservative, and primitive selfish people who systematically, and in an organized manner exploit and abuse naive believers and their children. Because of the fundamentally harmful character of the Church, it is understandable that even the faithful cannot develop personally, but sin, and sin big, along with their Teachers of Sin, from the Pope on down. When they commit a bad act or sin, they just confess – most don’t do even that, as more and more Christians are only on paper, as the churches are empty – ask god for forgiveness – if they could, they would rather buy an indulgence – and then go on with the harmful behavior again.
It is similar to the faithful in Carlos Castaneda’s Church, except that they do not communicate directly with the Eagle, in the sense of confessing their sins and asking for forgiveness. In this mystical religion, sins do not exist – if a person does something harmful, he does not have to do anything, because he owes nothing to anyone. The only thing is that his harmful behavior has wasted precious time, which he could have used for practicing and preparing for the Great Flight when he will fly past the Eagle being transformed into a being of light. It is very clear from the postings in the Facebook groups that most of them do not even think about it, that they get lost in other and less important quotes, and that they do not know or do not understand the final goal.
Quoting Don Juan is very similar to quoting the Bible, where even Christians think that repeating the “word of god” is one of the most important religious activities. Just repeat Jesus’ statement and you are already blessed among the virgins. You have to be careful to be as sad, emotional, and dramatic as possible so that god will take you more seriously. “God so loved his Son that he had him killed on the cross.” And that is a “god of love”.
Although both religions originate from karmicons who invented them to mock, subjugate and exploit the faithful, in Christianity, self-pity and rolling in one’s mud is of utmost importance and worth: “God, have mercy on me, a worthless sinner!”, while in nagualism one must get rid of it as soon as possible and become an immaculate Warrior. The same is true of Importance, which Christians cultivate like marijuana and get stoned with regularly. All the kitsch pomposity, ostentation, and puffery of the Church, the Pope, the cardinals, and the bishops, the cheapness of the “holy” props and the absurd dramatic rituals, where, for example, wine is turned into blood, which is drunk by the cannibalistic faithful, demonstrates the emptiness and hollowness of the Christian ideology and its utter uselessness for everyday life, let alone for real personal development. Naive and ignorant believers think that if they go to mass in church, then they are better people. It’s like quoting quotes from the Bible and saying prayers – even if you repeat the whole Bible a thousand times, it doesn’t make you a better person, it just makes you more stupid, because you think you’re on the right track, but in reality, you’re failing, you’re wasting valuable time that could be used for real personal development, and you’re throwing money away by feeding greedy clerics who are getting fat at your expense.
The 10 “commandments of god”, some of which are self-evident to all who are honest and therefore unnecessary, are not obeyed by Christians, but broken constantly, regularly, and everywhere. The Church is at the forefront of public opinion against homosexuals, despising and persecuting them at every turn, and behind the scenes, according to some estimates, as many as 80% of priests are homosexual. I read in Richard Dawkins’ book The God Delusion that there is a growing number of religious people in America who are demanding the ‘right’ to kill homosexuals and not be punished for it.
To be continued.
All the best to all.
