In a world like ours, where the rich and powerful dominate the hegemony of our era, of society, and of the superstructure, there is a deep need for change. Imagine an epoch where the people and the people alone command the tide of history. Only by giving the masses the correct weapon can we begin a new age of enlightened living and responsible government. The world as we know it is at present being radicalized by the dire needs of the masses of people. Elsewhere I have said that I want to construct a magickal order of a new type. What this means in practice is that we should create such an order so that it can be the vanguard of shamanic revolution in each of our localities, but later throughout the rest of the world. I would like to help create a society where no one goes hungry, where the people are healed of their traumas and alienation through spiritual development as well as magickal empowerment. I would like to create a society where everybody was a shaman, or at least sympathizes with the shamanic current.

Suffering is the human condition. But to battle this condition and win is what the shamanic revolution is all about. Only the shaman can take the profane and find in it its inner beauty, its essence, and extract from it what he need in order to heal the maladies of his people. A social order that stays intimately connected to nature and our earth mother is a healthy order indeed. But for this to become a reality, we must first clarify what weapons the layperson and shaman alike have at their disposal in order to wage a battle with the oppressive forces of the present world order, that order that crushes the proletariat in order to feed the greed of the bourgeoisie. But ours is a spiritual battle which begins from within the individual. If we seek out the transformation of consciousness through the techniques discussed so far, we will arrive at a catharsis, an individual climax that will help us see in a new way and act in a way that is impeccable.

The shaman-sorcerer, or the revolutionary nahualli, understands that once we understand ourselves, we come to understand the plight of other people. Because of this, complete personal transformation is necessary before any act of revolution may be enacted. We could use strategy and tactics from afar in order to affect changed in the real world through shamanism, magick, and sorcery. A militant nahualli will master the three instruments of revolution before proceeding to any other revolutionizing activity. Once one has accomplished total mastery over the tonalli and the nahualli, we can say with certainty that the nagual has gathered enough strength and enough power to help the course of history along with their supernatural intervention. We will use the occult powers of the universe, first and foremost the aztec powers, in order to institute this change we seek in order to cleanse the universal human soul of bourgeois contamination and create our new hegemony, a New Power that will overtake any obstacle that stands in its way.

For the purposes of clarity, I have distilled the essence of what the instruments of the shamanic revolution are. These are: The Cholq'ij, Journeycraft, and Ritual. I will try my best to delineate what these are in the context of world revolution. Through the Cholq'ij, we will comprehend the immensity of the tonalli. Through journeycraft we can work in the background of modern civilization in order to change the world with the power of our thoughts, actions, and emotions. Finally, through ritual we build a bridge between the mundane and supernatural world. Of course, the New Power is increased through the prolonged practice of these three instruments and can be used against the control machine in many ways. It is up to the revolutionary nahualli to physically and spiritually muster up the correct amount of strength and will-power that it takes to instill the spirit of revolution into every human being so that we may lead them towards the path of change.

The Cholq'ij calendar, as said elsewhere, help humanity understand not only their purpose but what their connection to other human beings mean. The sacred calendar is many things, among them as the key to the ritual cycle, as a system of personal astrology, as a system of magick, and as a system of knowledge. The sacred Cholq'ij calendar is the greatest scientific legacy left to us by the great mesoamerican civilizations of the past. Through it, we can determine what our characteristics are, how we evolve, and how we interact with other people. The Cholq'ij is the key to the ritual cycle through which we practice. Worship and veneration of each of the nawales is paramount in the development of New Power, or an aetheric field that grows within our spirit body that increases our ability to manipulate the real world through acts of revolutionary sorcery.

Journeycraft is much like the classical shamanic journey but the difference however is that instead of focusing on personal alchemy and personal tranformation, journeycraft's main focus is to change the material realm towards our goal of world revolution and the construction of a spiritual socialistic society. The collective unconscious can be handled and manipulated by the experienced nahualli in such a way that results in material reality come out almost instantaneously, but one needs to be developed to a very advanced level in order to accomplish this. It is of course necessary to completely decondition yourself from the virus of capitalist hegemony. In order to crush capitalism we must journey to the supreme deity Ometeotl and ask for permission to travel down to the region of the dead, Mictlan, in order to make allies for it is in the underworld that we meet allies that can affect reality from nonordinary reality. Remember that our sustenance comes from the earth and only if we travel into it can we intimately understand the power that hides behind the veils of death. The trip to the upperworld and lowerworld is long and quite dangerous to ones psyche. Nevertheless it is a neccesary step in the creation of a world aetheric field of a revolutionary kind.

Through ritual, we may build a bridge between the worlds of the tonalli and the nahualli. This is the critical step that must be taken in order to foster world shamanic revolution. We can whistle to our guardian spirit and ask him to activate others in the middle world in which we live towards to shamanic path. We can use journeycraft in conjunction with the Cholq'ij in order to facilitate our intentions from the otherworlds into this one. By building portals from the spirit world to a certain class of individuals that have the potential to be at the vanguard of the cause of socialism and shamanism, we can radically alter our vibration and set forth the programme of a new, revolutionary society by building an army of nahuallis. How we activate these people is a whole other story. We can activate, through ritual, these people by sending out our vibration to their sign in the maya calendar. They will be initiated through the power of the aztec gods by doing rituals to this collective body by any means necessary in order to alter our perceptions and to truly see our society for what it is. Drumming, rattling, chanting, and intoning are methods we may use to alter our consciousness and engage the spirit world towards our goals of destroying the control machine.

Through applying the three instruments of revolution we can totally change the world from inside out partially through our own meditations but actively through personal or group ritual. A system of magick must be concentrically constructed and tailor made for the endeavor that we are about to undertake. We can mold reality to our liking to the sheer power of our thoughts but it takes practice and severe discipline. First and foremost we must invoke and work with the Spirit of Revolution so that it may guide us as we pass into the abyss from where miracles happen. It will not take a miracle, but practice. The contradiction today is between the spiritual and the non-spiritual, between the real and the superstitious. But remember that superstition is a tool that can be handled diligently for our own purposes. Become a master of superstition and you could effect the whole planet, because whether a superstition is true or not is beyond the point. The point is that belief is what makes change in the middleworld realm, and if we could bend belief to our liking, we can engage the bourgeois from a true position of power, from where they cannot touch you.

Long live the shamanic cultural revolution!
Long live the Cholq'ij calendar!
Long live the broad masses of people!

Yours in the struggle,
--Teopiltzin

Can you explain the specific objections you have to capitalism, in a spiritual context?

Capitalism exploits the working class or proletariat by keeping them as wage slaves. The worker cannot function to his most full potential because he is under the spell of the Spirit of Capitalism which makes him alienated from the product of his labor. He is kept poor and property-less. Also, capitalism destroys our environment and pollutes mother earth. There are many other reasons, but these are just some.

Capitalism...
That enterprising spirit of competition that support fair trade and flourishes best in a free trade environment.

...well, at least that's what we have been taught.

The ultimate expression of success in a capitalistic system is the monopoly/trust, where an entity controls every aspect of the market and can lower the quality of their product while increasing the market cost to maximize profits across the board. (Think: company town, where companies paid workers less than the cost of living to create a form of debt slavery. See also Coal Towns)

This forced a change of national policy as a reactionary move to enact anti-trust and anti monopoly laws that are intended to limit, if not outright prevent, companies from having unfair advantage of the consumer market.
(See: Break up of AT&T... American Telephone and Telegraph)

Modern examples of a companies taking unfair advantage of a growing, and influential market share to the detriment of the consumer and the advantage of profit for the companies...
1. Microsoft
2. WalMart
3. Any Pharmaceuticals Company

Where once, companies were more or less subject to the laws of the countries in which they were born, the modern mega conglomerate is, for the most part, resilient against the individual laws of countries, if not outright immune from them.

And while the individual officers may face some charges and fines, the company itself, a paper entity, is difficult to prosecute as a whole. (See Enron, in which the non-culpable employees were reduced to homeless poverty while the bulk of executive officers faced little in the way of liability, much less prison time)

But...
I don't want you to get the wrong idea...

I do believe the Capitalist economic system (in a general sense) is the most effective system a National structure can employ. It should never be employed without a conscientious balance of controls and back stops to prevent unfair and unethical practices, which, unfortunately, are a necessity. The capitalist system is intrinsically a system that supports more than competitions, it functions best with overt and covert agendas supported by corruption and graft. In fact, it is the corruption and graft (greasing of palms) that enables the system to function as a whole.

Capitalism has its problems, but as far as environmental damage goes, have a look at the damage done around factories in the "workers paradise" of the People's Republic of China. The little information that has leaked out reveals staggering amounts of pollution. To the Central Committee, the long term struggle for control of the planet is the priority, with environmental cleanup to be carried out at some unspecified time in the future after they are victorious.

A new form of governance must be conceived, that allows us to organize and operate with the greatest amount of freedom and creativity, while providing for the protections that teopiltzin mentions. But forget anarchism, it requires too much responsibility and intelligence on the part of the citizenry. Remember, the audience of the Jerry Springer show votes.

The 'people' on the whole are, unfortunately still like frightened, selfish sheep. Responsibility has to emanate from good leadership. However, the world is a very varied place and we differ in our opinions as to how best this can be achieved.

Radicalized? How? Not sure what you are saying here.

Everybody can't be a shaman and why should others sympathise with shamanic practice? We each have a right to have our beliefs accepted, that goes for other beliefs as well as shamanic ones. There are a lot of "I want" and "I would like" in the above paragraph. Is this about you or about how your spirits are working with you for the greater good?

Many spiritually enlightened people from different cultures have been doing this for millennia. It is not exclusive to shamanic practice.

This sounds like all the other revolutionary, communist, anarchic rhetoric bandied about. Where is the balance? Where is the respect for other people's opinions? It honestly sounds like the start of a cult, not a balanced and genuine concern for the Earth.

And we all do what we can, all shamanic practitioners around the world are doing their small part to bring back balance and harmony. It just takes small steps, adaptablility and courage to keep going even when your efforts seem like a drop in the ocean which can never turn the tide.
