Living Toltec

Artists of the spirit

Welcome, Practice Creates the Master!

There are times when we need to look in rather then out. To do this we need tools and understanding. This website is dedicated to recapturing our personal truth and sharing the tools and path to that truth.

The books of Don Miguel Ruiz have profoundly change my life. The incite he has put down on paper has explained why we live the way we do. Then he gives us the simple tools to return to the truth, which has been lost by our domestication. Don's books The Four Agreements, The Voice of Knowledge, The Mastery of Love and now The Fifth Agreement are some of the tools that have made this quest possible.

I would like this website to be a place to share and help. Sharing our individual experiences and incites as we continue to find our way to the truth.

Please take a few minutes to become a member and make a post on our forum. If  you have any suggestions Please feel more then free to suggest them and I will do my best to add them to the website.

Thank you

Pete

Toltec Tradition

Attention: open in a new window.

 

Thousands of years ago, the Toltec were known throughout southern Mexico as women and men of knowledge. Anthropologists have spoken of the Toltec as a nation or a race. But the Toltec were scientists and artists who formed a society to explore and conserve the spiritual knowledge and practices of the ancient ones. It may seem peculiar that they combined the secular with the sacred, but the Toltec considered science and spirit to be the same since all energy, whether material or ethereal, is derived from the same source and governed by the same universal laws.

The Toltec came together as masters (Naguals) and students at Teotihuacan, the ancient city of pyramids outside Mexico City known as the place where "Man becomes God". Teotihuacan remained the Toltec center of spiritual knowledge and transformation for many thousands of years and still endures as a living repository of silent knowledge.

Over the millennia, European conquest, coupled with a brief period of rampant misuse of personal power by a few of the apprentices, forced the Naguals to conceal the ancestral wisdom and maintain its existence in obscurity. They thought it was important to shield the knowledge from those who were not prepared to use it wisely or who might again intentionally misuse it for personal gain.

Fortunately, the esoteric Toltec knowledge was embodied and passed on through generations by different lineages of Naguals. Though it remained veiled in secrecy for hundreds of years, ancient prophecies foretold the coming of an age when it would be necessary to return the wisdom to the people. Now, don Miguel has been guided to share with us the powerful teachings of the Toltec.

Toltec knowledge arises from the same essential unity of truth as all the sacred esoteric traditions around the world. Though it is not a religion, it honors all the spiritual masters who have taught on the earth. Though it does embrace spirit, it is most accurately described as a way of life. Unlike our familiar experience, this way of life is distinguished by the ready accessibility of happiness and love.
