The complete recapitulation of a life is vital to the strategy necessary for transformation. Here are some Toltec aphorisms pertaining.
Toltecs have long been contemplating the deeper implications inherent within the act of incarnation. Although it is true that, since they are attached to the wheel of rebirth, the majority of beings have no choice in this matter, how do we define the urge that drives free beings into incarnation as if they too have no choice?
A difficult question this and one that appears to have no easy answer.
Toltecs have for a long time known that, in dealing with life, technical answers are but a convenient way in which to arrive at clarity. But technicalities cannot explain, much less probe, the subjective. Therefore our models of both man and the universe are just that, models of objective reality that allow us to explore our past, and map out the unknown. But how does one build a model of that which gives rise to the objective universe? How does one build a model of life? How does one model that which is pure feeling?
Therefore, although we can define the cause of existence, we cannot define that subjective something which gives rise to that cause, other than to say its expression is love in action. But although love in action is clear to see, love itself is as irrational as is life. We know neither the purpose of life nor the intent which imbues it with that meaning we term love in action.
This card points at how all the arrogance and self-importance of man can bring about his downfall. The lessons that come when this card is “in play” are often of a harsh nature. It corresponds to universal intent and therefore the consequences are not minor. The only safe way to approach is with genuine humility, if not there is danger that you will be knelt and forcibly so.
