                            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.

-From The Eagle’s Gift by Carlos Castaneda

My first approach to parallel perception was Carlos Castaneda’s books. I remember when Don Juan said that human beings were mediocre to be educated in the art of life to become warriors.  That idea stayed in my mind for a long time.  Sometimes, I felt as Don Juan said: a leaf sailing in the wind. Some time after that, I had a conversation about that subject with my husband and he told me: “But if you use energy, you have to be very carefully because it might be dangerous”.  That is why I think we need an experimented master as guide in ours first steps in the path of knowledge.

There is nothing more important than to wake up, take control of our actions and responsibilities as human beings. And the main responsibility is to be aware in every moment. For me, the best way to help other people is to be educated and cultivated ourselves. World is energy, if you cultivate energy in a positive way, I think you can help to make the world move to a healthy tune, like a symphony. People are part of the orchestra, but we need to play the music of life’s joy and not the music of concerns, stress, hate or paltriness. It is simple, but not easy because we need to learn. I am willing to learn.

I have listened that when the student is ready the master appears. Maybe this scholarship with Lujan Matus or when my husband recommended me to read The Art of Stalking Parallel Perception were a signal. I do not know. I just can say it was shocking to me realizing the existence of shadows beings when I read The art of Stalking… I learned those beings feed and drink from our emotions. We are not ourselves most of the time. But then, who am I?  Who is this person that moves her legs? Who is thinking? Where am I? The other is waiting for me to conscious to of his presence? And that presence, is it me?

The Parallel Perception Scholarship Program is an opportunity in the truth’s path.  Among people there are many gourds that seem good but they are not because they get broken easily. Then, there are many people that want to know but not all can sustain themselves on the path to knowledge. In conclusion, the teacher chooses the strong gourd. No matter what how many classes or how many books you have read about the subject, the most important thing is to know, really, if we are ready to knowledge.

There is no better battle than the battle to acquire the knowledge and to wake up the warrior we have inside.

Right now I feel prepared for battle, because I want to help, helping me, cleaning myself; my clarity, because I have felt when the emotion takes control of me; many times of my life I have not really been myself and I regret it. But there is no more time for regrets, just for actions. I consider this essay as my action towards knowledge. I want to return to the beginning, at that being unattached and conscious that is only watching.

At the same time I would like to contribute to recuperate this objectivity in this reality, learning to control my own energy; being aware; cultivate my inner silence. Because if there are more people that learn to be aware and take control of his or her energy, then that intention, that action might be transmittable to every one like a vibratory field. That is why I think the best every one can do to help others is learning to be aware to transform this reality in a symphony of perception.
