They gave us chocolate, corn, guacamole, and chiles, and have even more to offer spiritually.
The people who inhabited America before our contemporary civilization were as complex, intelligent, and lovely as any who live today, and their cultures were as varied, contradictory, and expressive. They were great artisans, poets, warriors, thinkers, astronomers, mathematicians. Yes, the ancient Americans degenerated, exactly like our beloved Greeks and Romans, yet the former cultures of the Americas remain widely ignored. Most importantly, at its heart the mysticism of the ancient Americans is completely in harmony with the mysticism of the Egyptians, Buddhists, Christians, Greeks, Jews, Hindus, and so on, and when we study them all, we start to see the place they come from: the one, universal religion.
In Aztec Christic Magic, Samael Aun Weor illuminates many of the significant symbols of the Aztec spiritual tradition, while also providing a series of practical methods to awaken consciousness and experience the truth for ourselves. Through meditation, awakening in the world of dreams, and transmuting the sexual energy, anyone can rise out of suffering and establish a life of happiness.
“The world of ignorance is governed by fear, hate, greed, and lust. In it wander men and women floating listlessly, to and fro, upon their passions only. Only when the human being realizes the spiritual verities of life does he then escape from this underworld... The sun of truth rises in the human being and illuminates his world when he lifts his mind from the darkness of ignorance and selfishness into the light of wisdom and altruism." —Samael Aun Weor
When I first read Samael Aun Weor’s books they were very different from any spiritual books I had read before. The style in this book as well is unique and direct, with infinite number of parallels to other world traditions that a westerner may be more familiar with. The story of Quetzalcoatl is for me new, fascinating and so rich with symbolism of ancient America. There are plenty of illustrations, and explanations provided by the publisher to help understand the vastness of this doctrine. It takes time reading and rereading just to begin grasping this book and the teachings.
This is a must read for anyone looking to grow spiritually!
