The sorcerer, nagual, who was known as Don Juan to Carlos Castaneda, was a Yaqui Indian who carried on an ancient Mexican line of sorcery and shamanism.
Always profound, don Juan continuously pointed the way to opening our eyes.
DON JUAN MATUS
As long as a man feels that he is the most important thing in the world, he cannot really appreciate the world around him. He is like a horse with blinders; all he sees is himself, apart from everything else.
We talk to ourselves incessantly about our world. In fact we maintain our world with our internal talk. And whenever we finish talking to ourselves about ourselves and our world, the world is always as it should be. We renew it, we rekindle it with life, we uphold it with our internal talk. Not only that, but we also choose our paths as we talk to ourselves.
Thus we repeat the same choices over and over until the day we die, because we keep on repeating the same internal talk over and over until the day we die. A warrior is aware of this and strives to stop his internal talk.
I am already given to the power that rules my fate.And I cling to nothing, so I will have nothing to defend.
I have no thoughts, so I will see.I fear nothing, so I will remember myself.
