A lineage of men and women of knowledge –or seers– which originated in ancient Mexico regarded Saber-toothed Tigers as beings with an outstanding capacity to perceive non-ordinary realities. The sages of this lineage affirm that such capacity is directly related to the sabertooth’s breathing, which is very deep and expansive. For them, breathing in this manner enables the body to call in on the force that binds everything in the universe together –a force they call Intent.
It is Intent that allows anyone who taps into it to enter non-ordinary states of perception. The seers of ancient Mexico called these states “Dreaming”. The art of Dreaming –it is an art– can be practiced while one is awake or asleep. Mastering it, however, takes a lifetime of the most arduous discipline and purpose. Seers referred to this kind of purpose as ‘Unbending Intent’, and affirm that Saber-toothed Tigers possess such unbending intent that they did not actually go extinct. According to those men and women of knowledge, some members of that genus transferred their awareness, through Dreaming, into another realm of perception. “It is not they who are imprisoned”, seers say, “but us”.
Each one of us, however –if we so desire–, can reclaim or rightful legacy as travelers of awareness. And, just like the Saber-toothed Tiger of Intent, Dream our totality into a new realm of perception. The name given to this realm by the seers of this lineage is Total Freedom.
