“Ordinarily, if an average man comes face to face with the nagual the shock would be so great that he would die. The goal of a warrior’s training is not to teach him to hex or to charm, but to prepare his tonal not to crap out ... You call it explaining. I call it a sterile and boring insistence of the tonal to have everything under it’s control. Whenever it doesn’t succeed, there is a moment of bafflement and then the tonal opens itself to death. What a prick! It would rather kill itself than relinquish control. And yet there is very little we can do to change that condition.”

Soul & Soil

n

Just noticed how close the words “soul” and “soil” seem to be.

In Hebrew the root word for man is אדמ “adam”.

The feminine version of that word is אדמה “adama” which means earth.

Unlike english the word for soul נפש “newfesh” does not seem to be directly related.
