Resistance, cause of from Warriors' Experience


  • Resistance, cause of
  • Humility, lack of

Question:

Theun, it seems that my resistance is the result of identifying with the tonal. The true male is No-thing and Every-thing (I perceive) is female. I mustn't con-fuse the two, but instead must ensure that I split the sexes. I am learning that I am not my personal history. Am I on the right track in terms of freeing myself of resistance ?

If you feel that I can be of value to you and your purpose - while at the same time being able to unfold my own potential - I would love to join you permanently at the Temple of Peace. I dream of having a permanent home that I can leave for some time every year and travel without an agenda. This vision makes my heart sing. I will continue to work upon myself and we will see what happens. Thank you.

Also, I am excited to hear more about the groups that may be created in Canada and the US. I have very little tying me down - just the desire to save some money and the desire to learn more about Biodynamic and Bio-intensive farming.

I was wondering about a dream I had about six years ago.

The dream took place in the desert. I was a lion cub with vibrant teal fur and dressed in bronze/gold armor. I was being held toward the sun by a shaman monkey, as other animals watched the ceremony. My mother and father watched on - normal lions, one with a teal patch on its face (mind) and the other with a teal patch on its chest (heart). Everybody was waiting to see what would happen. It seemed like their was no response - and that than meant that I had to leave. Me and my lion parents walk off. It was not a happy time - but there was no anger or shame. It just had to be.

During this dream - it was as if I was narrating to myself my purpose in this lifetime. It was something about working with dysfunctional peoples - people who had abused drugs, where from divorced families, etc. It was about seeing the value in these challenges.

Does this signify that I am of the lion dreaming class? Am I meant to deliver the Toltec teachings to these "dysfunctional peoples"? Was the lion cub being sent away from the sun an illustration of being severed from the Nagal? Do the three lions in the dream represent the superlative trinity and the three bands of man? Is the teal lion cub in armor a symbol for the eye of the eagle? Did that moment in my life represent the end of destruction and the beginning of a new garden? Is the first insight of the three pronged Nagal the one I should focus on? Is the lion color indigo purple? Am I missing the point completely, LOL? This is one of the questions I've had for years.

I also had a dream where a being of some type told me that my purpose was called "white snow". Peace within the process of life? Something to do with the Temple of Peace?

Thank you Theun. I have so much more to say, but I will respect your time and leave it at that, for now! I awoke a few nights ago knowing that I just want to be part of the group. I feel that my selfishness will transform into selflessness as I learn about my place in the world.
Your friend

Answer:

You are correct in believing that resistance comes from the mind's identification with the form, or the tonal, as it is termed in the Old Tongue. But there is MUCH in both the books as well as the database concerning resistance. I am not going to reiterate here what I have already explained at length.

And now to answer your barrage of questions. LOL!

"I dream of having a permanent home that I can leave for some time every year and travel without an agenda."

You have me scrataching my head here. If you DO one day join us permanently, what travel are you referring to? If you join us you will be put to work, HARD work! Therefore you can forget about flitting around the globe, unless there is a need for you to do so.

"I am excited to hear more about the groups that may be created in Canada and the US."

You will be the first to know! Promise! <g>

"Does this signify that I am of the lion dreaming class?"

I very much doubt it. You should be looking at what the Dream Symbols mean, rather than jumping to conclusions about Dreaming Classes.

"Am I meant to deliver the Toltec teachings to these "dysfunctional peoples?"

How the hell am I supposed to know? It was YOUR dream, my friend, not mine! And let us get one thing clear, okay? It is true that I am a seer, but this does NOT mean that I am omniscient! LOL!

"Was the lion cub being sent away from the sun an illustration of being severed from the Nagal?"

No. I think you were just being shown that your role within life is NOT what you would LIKE it to be! Perhaps all this nagal business you are so hooked to? Hmmmm?

"Do the three lions in the dream represent the superlative trinity and the three bands of man? Is the teal lion cub in armor a symbol for the eye of the eagle?"

My friend, you CAN if you wish, make the Dream Symbols represent ANYTHING your MIND would like them to represent. But unless you wish to become LOST in a quagmire of mind-games, I suggest you ADHERE to the meanings of the Dream Symbols as given.

"Did that moment in my life represent the end of destruction and the beginning of a new garden?"

Possibly, for you do indeed have a very strong urge within you towards destruction. But I don't see this as meaning that you are a Lion. Instead I see it as coming from your HUGE resistance to PARTICIPATING within the process of life! But let us just call a spade a shovel, okay? Your HUGE resistance towards acquiring the HUMILITY of the true warrior! Your sense of superiority, my friend, is quite frankly, VULGAR!

"Is the first insight of the three pronged Nagal the one I should focus on?"

Now what sort of question is this? Hmmmm? The Rule of the Three-Pronged Nagal should be studied as ONE WHOLE, as in fact you should be doing with ALL of the teachings. So why this question? Are you trying to tell me something? And anyway, WHY, if you so desperately WANT to be nagal, do you go for the three-pronged nagal? Why not the four-pronged nagal? Or do you see that the three-pronged is somehow MORE important than the four-pronged? Or are you trying to say that you are bisexual?

"Is the lion color indigo purple?"

No, it isn't! And so as to put your mind at ease, once and for all, know that there are currently NO Lions within manifestation, for the simple reason that their energy would be too destructive within the world today! But is indigo purple the colour you see in your Dreaming Practice? If so, let me know.

"Peace within the process of life? Something to do with the Temple of Peace?"

I would say yes to both questions. :)

With warm regards,
Théun
