In the Toltec tradition, there is nothing to learn except to unlearn everything that takes our inspiration away. Toltec means artist, and we are all artists of life, creating our lives through our thoughts, perceptions, and actions.

Palettal Prose: River of Positivity

Return to positivity

with gratitude to negativity

for letting us know what to change

for letting us know what we don’t want

for reflecting how we are eating our own poison

Lady awareness

thank you for introducing me

to the story teller that tells me my story

to put my attention to what the river took away

I will let life be thy witness

like an out-of-body experience

but not like in sleeping dream

but in awakened state of lucid dream

letting the waterfall flow

in what force she feels like

she free and we feel her within us

life throws us into the river to swim in her

looking into our honest eyes

smokey mirror is getting cleared

the spirit can be felt in everything

especially in the space between words

so let us close our eyes

and dream and beautiful

and then open them

and look what the river

is bringing today

…first key to transformation: Acceptance – I will accept myself where I am today, without judgment…

Once you are able to practice full acceptance – accepting reality the way it is and giving up trying to control things that are completely out of your control – you begin experiencing the next key to transforming your life: Honesty – becoming your authentic self…

The third key to transforming your life is Discipline – taking responsibility for your own thoughts and actions…

Last but not least is Respect – enjoying the mysteries of life.

I used to think of a dream catcher as something mystical and outside of me that would create my dreams for me. Then I realized that I am the dream catcher, and if I pay attention, with full intent, I have the power to choose what dream I am going to catch next.
