I call this process the domestication of people. And through this process, we are now learning to live and dream. “Your life is the manifestation of your dream, it is an art. Dream masters create a masterpiece of life; they control the dream by making decisions. Everything has consequences and a dream master is aware of the consequences. By changing the basis of your own chords, you master your own dream. Thousands of years ago, the Toltecs created three championships to lift us out of suffering and bring us back to our true nature, which is happiness, freedom and love. The Toltecs encouraged us to see us with the truth, and they created a championship for consciousness alone. The first championship, the mastery of consciousness, is the first step towards personal freedom, because we cannot be free if we do not know what we are, where we are or what kind of freedom we are seeking. In this championship, we realize the fog that is in our head.
We realize that we dream all the time and that everyone dreams. The mastery of consciousness can also be called the mastery of truth. Ruiz says it is the most important and difficult agreement to meet. Thinking about speech brings the idea to life. To be impeccable with your word means to use your energy towards truth and love for yourself and therefore for others. “The abuse of the word is the way we kill each other and keep each other in a state of fear and doubt.” It`s like poison. We use the word against ourselves through negative self-speech, and we use the word against others through gossip; The support of others to support our point of view. “Tell yourself how much you love yourself. Use this word to break all the chords that make you suffer. In his book, Ruiz explains that children know nothing better than to agree with the adult realities in which they are indoctrinated. All children are born perfectly affectionate, playful and real. However, parents set their children with standards of behaviour that they must follow to receive love and avoid criticism. These norms are eventually internalized in an unconscious series of instructions for life.
Ruiz says that the reason people of shamanic traditions in America call themselves “warriors” is that they are at war for independence and the right to use their own spirit and free themselves.
