    The Origin of Internal Dialog-Don Juan Matus-Carlos Castaneda and others

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIa9ae2WLmg


    This video is an editorial that is for educational purposes. Carlos Castaneda and Don Juan Matis have given us great treasures with their words. Don Juan explains to Carlos how the human mind works from a shamans point of view. Don Juan's line of thinking opens up new possibilities that will help a person understand their internal dialog and how it affects their lives. I have used short clips from the movie Revolver and the movie, The Matrix to give a modern point of view that will help explain the old shamans way of thinking. I am also reading from the book Active Side of Infinity by Carlos Castaneda. More great information can be found at Eckhart Tolle TV on youtube. Elkhart Tolle explains silencing the mind.

    Stopping the World

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9EW5kz-hT4


    Gerry Starnes, an Austin Texas area shamanic practitioner and teacher, addresses the internal dialog - the incessant internal chatter that most people experience. By halting the internal dialog long enough, one can "stop the world" and come fully into the present moment to access wisdom and power.

    Honoring Dr. Carlos Castaneda by: Aerin Alexander & Dr. Miles Reid Director John-Roger & Jsu Garcia

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXNToxWeXvY


    Dr. Carlos Castaneda was an anthropologist, visionary and author whose work continues to resonate and live on.
    During the 1960’s Castaneda developed a unique relationship with a Yaqui Indian leader, who infused him with the knowledge of the shamans of ancient Mexico, a practical type of shamanism focused on the development of one’s attention and energy in order to liberate perception and regain vitality in life.
    We (Aerin and Miles) met Castaneda in the mid 1990s and became his direct apprentices.
    We were part of a small group who knew him personally and intimately, and from whom we learned how to adapt these ancient shamanic teachings to our modern needs, to expand our consciousness and to re-establish our link to the universe at large.
    Castaneda changed completely the direction of our lives, and we are immensely grateful for the opportunity to learn to see the world in a different, more expansive and encompassing way.
    Castaneda taught us to shift our consciousness to the heart, a shift of the assemblage point, as he used to say.
    That means having our heart as the main center for perception, as a brain that communicates at a higher speed and reaches out farther than our rational mind.

    An integral part of our training with Castaneda involved the daily practice of specialized movements by which the mind becomes more open and fluid and the body stronger and more vital.

    “I (Miles) was a young medical doctor from Argentina when I met him, and I was trying to find my place as a healer and as a person. Serendipitous events led me to meet him and at the onset he said there was a reason for our encounter, that one day I was to bridge science and shamanism.
    My apprenticeship under his tutelage was a 24/7 demonstration of what it means to be fully available to life as it is meant to be for all of us.
    He taught me hundreds of movements that had been part of the ancient legacy he had learned, and asked me to demonstrate and teach them to the public. My memory of him, even today, is intrinsically intertwined with the vitality he exuded and the love he had for these movements.
    Castaneda taught me discipline, elegance and what it means giving one’s best, and then some more.”
    In body, mind and spirit Castaneda was an unparalleled role model. His curiosity, sense of humor, expansive mind, and generous heart are beyond any words we could use to describe them.
    What was most striking for us was that there was no distance between his actions and his words. He lived the legacy of the ancient sages with humbleness and sobriety.

    His unbending purpose for freedom from pseudo idealities has been a great source of inspiration for us. “In my case (Aerin), I was in my early twenties when I met him and I felt limited by my interpretations of the world and my upbringing. I couldn’t find a way to feel connected to people; I was depressed and lonely, struggling to fit into a cold world. Castaneda guided me to gather energy through the practice of movements and recapitulation, to suspend my negative self-talk and long-term negative habits. He inspired and supported me to educate my mind with science and literature.
    And he taught me to shift my center of perception to my heart by, first, learning to love the trees in his house.
    For four years I was invited daily to practice movements for long hours and to learn to prune and nurture his trees.
    By learning to care for nature, I learned to care for others and myself.
    That was the first step on shifting my consciousness to a higher purpose.”
    Castaneda urged us to find our own way of living the teachings, to validate things through our own practice and experience; to not take anything for granted, to find what we loved and to follow and share with others the possibilities of paths with heart.

    'The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity.'

    The Universe is a Giant Fractal
    Posted on February 20, 2018 by Lorraine

    Patterns are maintained by consistently giving energy to a system of power. I choose freedom from the routines, from the patterns, from the human collective. My life is about walking each moment in full awareness, forever touching it, honing it and knowing it through the grandeur that is our existence here upon this earth. –  Becoming Awareness

    I like to imagine the entire Universe as a giant fractal. Each component within the fractal is a pattern that constantly flows and becomes more than it is as it continues to touch the original pattern and while eternally morphing into something different and new.

    The above quote comes from my book in a chapter entitled Habitual Patterns and Thought Forms. I’ve often discussed the importance of recapitulating the historical patterns that have been handed down from generation to generation. Many people allow these patterns and associated thought forms to serve as the foundation of their reality without ever attempting to become aware of their own true nature free from these patterns.

    In order for us to hold a pattern in our minds, we must push away the rest of the fractal. When we do, we are no longer fluid; we become fixated or have fixated the position of our assemblage point. If you define someone with a word, you negate them. By giving someone a label, you eliminate all of the other things that they could be. At the same time, you are creating them to fulfill that definition because you have defined it to exist. You have defined them as a single pattern within the fractal.

    Don Juan told Carlos Castaneda that, The New Seers are the only ones who have the sobriety to see the mold of man and understand what it is; the pattern of every human attribute we can think of and some we cannot even conceive. We are what it stamps us with.

    Don Juan told Carlos that he had to go beyond the mold, that the mold was merely a stage, a stopover that brought temporary peace and serenity to those who journey into the unknown, but that it was sterile, static. It was at the same time a flat reflected image in a mirror and the mirror itself. And the image was man’s image.

    We are each taught to live our lives based upon the myths that have been passed down through centuries. There are thousands upon thousands of myths and their primary function is to provide us with a model that helps us to activate our unconscious. When this occurs, we can then integrate the unconscious into our consciousness. When we connect with our unconscious, we move beyond the patterns that we have upheld throughout our lives and our unconscious allows us to realize the unlimited potential that lies within each of us.

    I hear everyone constantly complaining about the state of our country, our world, the earth, ourselves. We fight and fight to attempt to bring about change. We are human beings, not human doings. Gandhi said BE the change you want to see in the world, not DO the change you want to see in the world.

    Buckminster Fuller said, You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

    Our true crisis in this world is the inability to experience consciousness.

    Let go of the patterns within the fractal and free the fractal, of which we are each a part, so we may continue to flow, change, and create ourselves into becoming the most of what we are capable of truly being. We must rise to the task of being the true creator beings that we are each meant to be.

    Keep Dancing!

    Victim Consciousness or New Level of Awareness?
    by Lorraine Voss

    And now the battle continues, since we are trapped by the forces of this world. One part of us is fighting to disintegrate and die, while another tries to maintain life and awareness at any cost. There is no peace! A warrior realizes this, and uses it to his advantage. His goal continues to be that which inspired the spark of life that created him: Access to a new level of awareness. – Carlos Castaneda, Encounters with the Nagual

    The world is being consumed at a rapid rate by a foreign, energetic line called “victim consciousness.” In my book there is a chapter entitled The Lineage where I write about the multiple lines of awareness that exist and how those that glow or shine the brightest aren’t necessarily the best ones to connect with. Rather, they glow brightly because of the amount of energy they receive. Here is an excerpt from that chapter:

    The brightest lines are the lines into which people place a lot of energy. This makes them shiny and brilliant which appeals to the subconscious and attracts people to them easily, like moths to a flame. People provide a lot of energy to those lines by being exposed to the constant bombardment of subliminal messaging they receive through the stories, realities, beliefs, and judgments of others. These subliminal messages are fed to the public and the public, without even realizing it, attaches a lot of importance to those lines. They become brighter as the result of collective consciousness feeding them. It’s been going on for centuries. Many of those lines are man-made and have increased energetically through the world of reason and have become anchored in reality. Some of the lines are of anger, fear, greed, despair, violence, and unworthiness, to name some of the brighter yet less virtuous lines.

    The victim consciousness line is ridiculously bright at this time. Do not confuse victimization with that of being a victim. Victimization occurs when someone is targeted and has prevailed by not becoming reduced to being a perpetual victim as a result of the victimization experience. But a person who functions in the world as a victim is one who becomes the experience of victimization and as a result, chooses to perpetuate that story. A person of victim consciousness lives in the place of pity and becomes, by the habitual behavior of portraying themselves as just that, a victim. They become a victim to external forces that they have become aligned with to the point of viewing the entire world as the enemy.

    Again from my book, One of the biggest lies that has been imposed upon people for centuries is that they are unworthy and incomplete as human beings. The idea of unworthiness is a deceitful maneuver that was set in place by the system, the man-made matrix. It is insinuated that from the moment people enter into this beautiful world that they are not whole, are born in sin, and that there are countless expectations to be met and adhered to through a lifetime of obedience and compliance in order to ensure their salvation…
