The Sounds of the World

Female Warrior - The Toltec Path

Someone recently said to me that Don Juan advised Castaneda to put a great deal of importance on listening to the “sounds of the world” thus achieving inner silence through them and then asked what my opinion or experience is on this aspect of the Toltec path.

I think the sounds of the world was discussed in Castaneda’s book A Separate Reality. Daniel Quinn, author of Ishmael and whom I have referred to in other posts said: “Once you learn to discern the voice of Mother Culture humming in the background, telling her story over and over again to the people of your culture, you’ll never stop being conscious of it. Wherever you go for the rest of your life, you’ll be tempted to say to the people around you, “how can you listen to this stuff and not recognize it for what it is?”
