2. Return of the Ancient

In the face of our current crisis of values, the question remains: which other values should we replace these with? This creates the need to recover ancient wisdom; not in order to take the place of our current knowledge, but rather to complement it, so that by combining past and present we can progress into the future. This is how life evolves: by adding what is current to what existed before, so that the future unfolds by the magic of that union. It is a pattern known in nature as the Fibonacci sequence.

The Toltec Warrior

In a world in which physical matter is fleeting and ephemeral, and the subsequent reality belongs to the spiritual realm, the conscious human being faces life like a battle, fought in order to move on toward the spiritual plane, where the soul is immortal. Such was the Toltec view.

Toltecayotl

The Toltecayotl symbolizes the ‘balance between the spiritual and material aspects of the world, as well as the intuitive and the rational. This is expressed through the ‘harmonic encounter’ of four butterflies. As the butterflies take flight, the divine breath from the center detaches the spirit from its earthly bonds in order to lift it up to heaven.
