Don Jose Ruiz, Author of the Fifth Agreement and Teacher of Toltec Traditions
Toltec wisdom is about healing with spirit, and Toltec practitioners serve as an extension of the divine Mother Earth. The fire within is there to protect us from ourselves. Follow that fire. The Toltec of today has evolved as the world has evolved—kept alive not with blind faith repeating traditional beliefs, but by how the world is dreaming right now. There are many challenges to unlearn. Toltec is an ancient common sense where you know the truth. It's an autopsy on the illusion of today.
Don Jose speaks of two types of consciousness: personal consciousness—a personal dream—and impersonal consciousness, a field of interaction which includes all life on Earth and all life in the cosmos. “We have the ultimate respect for the ultimate dance of detachment, which dances with the angel of death in the music of life. And from this point, we live with gratitude, not with a fear to hold on and miss everything that is around us."
