Life for the average man is nothing more than a dream and, being caught within that dream, his actions are nothing more than folly. All that is required to escape from the madness of this dream is knowledge of the four components of the dream.
These four components are one's challenges within life; the possibilities that come into being because of one's challenges; the Four Postulates of Stalking; and the Stalker's Rule.
To become proficient in the Art of Stalking, you need to learn how to listen to your heart. Therefore you must turn to the West; the place of the setting sun, and allow your death to guide you in erasing your personal history.
As you erase your personal history through the process of transformation, you will begin to grasp the riddle of the heart. Your heart will gradually reveal to you the meaning of space, and then you will come to realise that the Art of Stalking has its origin in feeling.
The Stalker knows that any view of the world is but a dream based upon the collective dream of humanity. Therefore the art of the Stalker lies in his ability to be able to slip into and out of any dream. He can do this because he has learned how to stalk, not only his own dream, but also the dreams of others. Having learned to stalk his own dream, and the dreams of others, the warrior learns the Lore of the Dragon.
Dragon Lore enables the warrior to enter the dream of the Eagle, and in so doing to learn to create possibilities that never before were present. The advantage of this is that in having to deal with the unpredictable whims of power, the warrior can always create a wild card whenever the need for one arises. Therefore Dragon Lore is the ultimate knowledge in the Art of Stalking - the ability to slip out of any trap.
Only one thing in the life of the warrior matters to him; and that is to achieve the totality of the self. Nothing else is of any consequence, and therefore even the Warrior's Path is for him merely a means to an end. Thus the warrior cannot uphold one view of the world as being more important than any other, for in the final analysis, it is not the description of life that is important, but life itself. Consequently everything a warrior does is an expression of his intent to achieve the totality of the self, by becoming at-one with the nagal, but without abusing the tonal and, above all, without damaging the body.
Having learned to control his folly, the Stalker never takes himself seriously, for he knows that his actions must reflect the continuous unfoldment of his awareness, as he strives to meet the whimsical demands of power. Thus the Stalker strives to be as fluid as possible.
