Juan Matus (don Juan)*


“Many people on the Earth, who became involved in religion just superficially, believe that their ‘religious duty’ is to weep.

“Yet, a spiritual warrior neither weeps, nor complains, nor pities himself. He sees his defects and — without stopping to fight — gets rid of them once and for all!

“When we are concerned only with seeking our defects and grieving about our imperfection — we miss the possibility to perform really serious work on helping people and developing ourselves.

“We have to be able of taking our attention off the personal ‘I’ — and looking at the One Whom we love! We have to learn to live and to act by His example and follow His precepts!

“We have to ask Him to help us to understand our mistakes and to reform — yet, we should keep in mind that the success depends, first of all, on our efforts.

“And the main thing — we have to change our attitude toward events which look unfavorable to us. We have to learn to regard this — from His standpoint, i.e. from the standpoint of the Evolution of Universal Consciousness and spiritual growth of individual consciousnesses on the Path to Him.

“… Do you know, for example, how to master the art of perfect control over matter? This is very simple! One has to learn to laugh!

“I like to laugh! Do you want Me to tell you about the laugh of Nagual?

“A spiritual warrior from the very beginning must learn the laugh of Nagual: he laughs at his own vices and thus makes them burst like soap-bubbles — they burst together with the inflated feeling of self-importance!

“Many people believe that it is weapon that makes man strong. This is wrong! It is laugh that makes man strong! The laugh of Nagual turns the envelope of ‘I’ into nothing. The only thing one has to add is calm and laugh — and then… There is only infinite, flowing, free consciousness

“Search for the personal power is just a hook, a trick which the One Power* uses for ‘catching’ and teaching him who does not hear when he is told about Love… or Tenderness…

“If he does not learn this from the Power, he is not going to progress…

“There is the following law: the Power does not belong to anyone, only you can belong to the Power.

“The Power just is, and it is the Power of Love.

“When you gain Freedom, you just merge with It into One… Your desires and the desire of the Power become the same; your choice and the choice of the Power become identical …

“He, who tries… to ‘command’ the Power, falls into Its trip. The Power catches him by this desire, and he becomes Its tool, even without knowing about this. He lives as a blind, stricken by the feeling of self-importance, and he may never become sighted.

“And the process of growing coarse power can become irreversible like a cancer process…

“… On the other hand, the ability of laughing at one’s own vices, making fun of them is the first step to the real mergence with the Power!

“He who has learned to laugh so that his vices, which he laughs at, cease to exist — he is about to perform great deeds!

“A spiritual warrior can laugh only at himself; he never makes fun of other people!

“From the Truth, which lives in him, he looks at that which is imperfect in him — and he laughs! And when in him there remains nothing of that which he laughs at, — he becomes Everything, he becomes a true Nagual; his laugh unites with the joy of Beingness, with the Freedom and Power!

“Then he gains the ability of affecting the particles of the Great Whole, removing that which prevents the joy of beingness, prevents the Radiant Light of the Power from manifesting in others whom He feels in Himself — those who entrusted to him, to the Nagual, the leadership on the Path to the Freedom.

“See how beautiful the laugh of Nagual is: it heals souls, ridding them of burden and pain, it makes them capable of flying into the unknown

“Do you understand now the basics of the art of perfect control over matter?

“When you have mastered this, I will tell you further… And do not forget to put on My hat*: this can help.

“… Impeccable acting of a spiritual warrior in interaction with the Power fills his life with special acuteness and silent passion.

“And the life of Nagual becomes a manifestation of the action of the Power.

“One can learn wisdom in universities — and this is good. Yet, one can and should learn the higher Wisdom interacting with the Power. When you seek solutions for the Nagual’s party, when you find methods for teaching the students — you gain Wisdom.

“Genaro and I are Those Who live and act, and not just speak about this. We have always lived and live now the life filled to the brim with the state of impeccable Love and Power.

“Feel this state of Nagual’s life in the moment of ‘now’, feel that the Power of God fills every moment, everything:

“… This burning fire…

“… The quietness of the forest…

“… Earth under your body…

“… This place of power, which allows one to cognize the living consciousness of the Earth… and further, deeper… more deeper…, where there is only Great Love and Power of the Creator!

“… This cannot be conveyed to others by means of words. This has to be ‘tasted’: as one bites off, chews, and swallows a piece of bread — only then you can know it.

“Such is the spiritual Path: if you have chosen it — chew it! Then every moment of life in interaction with the Power becomes invaluable experience for the soul.

“In the life of a true spiritual warrior there are no holes, he never feels bored, he cannot be depressed by past failures or worries about the future. He has only life which he lives to the end with maximal efficiency, with full awareness of the Goal, with full responsibility for his decisions! And then the Power fills this life to the brim…”
