Toltec Teachings

Toltec quotes:
by Kristopher Raphael

"Our Dreamer is much, much larger than we are. On the level of Destiny the Dreamer is the one in control. As the leaf is a part of the tree, we are part of our Dreamer. However we are a part with a "mind of its own". It is this mind of ours with its beliefs, wounds, patterns, attitudes and ego that get us into trouble, and convince us that we are separate from that which we really are, our Dreamer."

"The elements of the world don't exist the way we assume they do. They exist only because we discriminate them from other things. As separate things they don't exist. As separate things WE don't exist. The problem is that the world we live in is so linked with our concepts that we cannot separate who we are and the world we live in from the content of our minds. We are not just living IN the past, we are living the past."

"Within the human the Nagual aspect is the unstructured part of self. It is UNLIMITED. Our tonal is our personality aspect, which consists of our mental, emotional and physical bodies, is our structured aspect. Our personality contains our POTENTIAL. If we fully align our tonal to the Nagual through the Dreamer we have UNLIMITED POTENTIAL."

"The jaguar moves silently following every movement of its prey. The prey is unaware of its presence. When stalking we, like the jaguar, must also observe in silence. If we begin to judge or try to change what we observe, we lose our stance as the stalker. We become that which we are stalking."

From don Miguel Ruiz:

+ Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

+ Your life is the manifestation of your dream; it is an art. And you can change your life anytime if you aren't enjoying the dream. Dream masters create a masterpiece of life; they control the dream by making choices.

+ Christ called it heaven, and Buddha named it nirvana. But they mean the same and what they tried to express is that experience that they had when they experienced the truth. And whoever experienced the truth, he will explain in their own way, but whoever listens, whoever is explaining the truth will understand it right away because they were there.

+ Be aware that even if you meant your words as honey, other people can turn what you said into poison.

+ You face life depending on who you believe the main character is, the way you learned to be. Your father tells you that you are this way. Your mother tells you that you are that way. And that's what you become.

+ The infinite, the absolute, is a living being and the only one living being that really exists. And we all are part of that living being. And from that point of view, the way I see the universe, the way I see God is as perfection, like only perfection exists and it's not difficult to understand at all.

+ At the present time I really have no religion at all. But I love and respect all religions and philosophies. I see how they get formed, how they grow up, and how powerful they are. But for me to believe in a specific god.. no.

+ I can tell you that we have only one mission and that is to make ourselves happy. The only way we can be happy is by being who we are.+ Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive.. the risk to be alive and express what we really are.

+ Every human is an artist. And this is the main art that we have: the creation of our story.
