Toltec Mysteries and Education

My understanding of Toltec mysteries derives mainly from inking meditations (ink therapy) with Tanda, who has transformed himself, below, into a black bird perched atop widely-spread Omega legs. 

As a Toltecian skeptic, I must question all forms in this world. This inking session points to 9 Mitote mysteries which simply state: life is not always what it appears to be.

The sensory world is fractured into endless dualities: matter and spirit, light and dark, day and night, positive and negative, hot and cold, conscious and unconscious, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. 

The education of Toltec Warriors and Artists began with learning how to navigate the dualities of right-brain vs left-brain and to recognize the world of Mitote.

The Toltec Empire and leaders created an unmatched mystique in the minds of the Central American people. The Toltec leaders were thought of as being alongside deities. Later cultures often revered them and copied their legends, art, buildings and religion. Many future rulers of other cultures, including Mayan leaders and Aztec emperors, claimed to be descended from the Toltecs.
