A secret of Toltec shamans
It seems Toltec shamans either discovered or were given a long time ago a peculiar secret about "luminous beings", a secret about humans, animals and other beings of light (those composed of atoms/energy). So what's the secret?
It's simple: Everyone has a twin, a double that is dreamed by a person (called the dreamed). Moreover, this very double can dream about his own twin (himself) in his dream. (A dream within a dream.)
What does that mean? Well, it may mean that we (our bodies) are light that may reflect itself just like regular light.
So yes, this secret appears very simple... yet it's the awareness of the twin that counts, and the practice to make oneself aware of him, which is the other part (99%) of the whole secret.
The art of stalking
The one who received and mastered art of dreaming (being aware of the dreamed twin, and interacting through it) and art of stalking (watching one's routines, thoughts, feelings, addictions in order to trap them to either have control over them or to get rid of them) was called a Toltec. Anthropology seems to be very little aware of that meaning of the word "Toltec".
What is the art of stalking? It is an art of watching one's mental, personal surroundings: one's own feelings, thoughts, and also addictions.
Once a useless or negative routine, a thought, a feeling, or an addiction is trapped by one's own personal undivided attention, the problem can be easily dealt with and dropped.
If you examined closely your own addictions or notorious unpleasant thoughts (those recurring ones), you see that they have most power when they go without any notice by you. Once you set your utmost focus on them, they are trapped.
For example, person who drinks too much seems to be powerless as long as his attention avoids being focused on the problem. And yes, the same person could make thousands of excuses and create thousands of distractions to avoid facing the problem, even telling himself that he really *knows* about the problem! Knowing about it is nothing; it's the attention on it that counts! Also, person must be willing to do anything, first. Without the said person's decision and own free will the attention seems to remain useless and headless, like a ship without a captain. Dropping anything whether it seems "positive" or "negative" requires one's choice.
Toltecs would also stalk their own daily routines simply to get rid of them, and live a more mysterious, exciting life. :-)
