Polar Opposites, Fused

Daily Draw: Toltec Oracle ~ Ketsalkoatl Feathered Serpent

Feathered Serpent is the sum total, the highest aim of the Toltecs, and indeed the Aztec Maya and Inca civilizations. It shows the combining of two opposing forces, thoughts, beings, in this case by the fusion of the low moving serpent and the high flying eagle.

Who we become can only be known in hindsight as we change until we die. Who we are can be examined. If you do a outline of your life in five year increments you can see the sections of the physical, mental, and spiritual shape forming. And if you look back at that list a month later you'll be struck by the big things you forgot. That personal three-part-harmony is an amazing journey and well worth a review.

"The true portrait of a man is a fusion of what he thinks he is, what others think he is, what he really is, and what he tries to be." ~ Dore Schary 1905-1980
