We perceive. This is a hard fact. But what we perceive is not a fact of the same kind, because we learn what to perceive. Warriors say that we think there is a world of objects out there only because of our awareness. But what’s really out there are the Eagle’s emanations, the Indescribable force, fluid, forever in motion, and yet unchanged, eternal.

People tell us from the time we are born that the world is such and such and so and so, and naturally we have no choice but to accept that the world is the way people have been telling us it is. For a sorcerer, reality, or the world we all know, is only a description, one that has been pounded into you from the moment you were born. The reality of our day-to-day life, then, consists of an endless flow of perceptual interpretations which we have learned to make in common. Things are ‘real’ only after one has learned to agree on their realness.

We are a feeling and what we call our body is a cluster of luminous fibers that have awareness. As long as you think that you are a solid body you cannot conceive what I am talking about. We are luminous beings and everything we are or everything we feel shows in our fibers. Humans have a brightness peculiar only to them. That’s the only way to tell them apart from other luminous living beings.

Again, we are perceivers. The world that we perceive, though, was created by a description that was told to us since the moment we were born. The world had to conform to its description; that is, the description reflects itself. We have learned to relate ourselves to our description of the world in terms of what sorcerers call habits of intentionality, that is, the property of human consciousness whereby an object is habitually referred
to, or is habitually intended.
