“Every warrior has a place of his predilection which is soaked with
unforgettable memories, where powerful events left their mark, a place where he has
witnessed marvels, where secrets have been revealed to him, a place where he has stored
his personal power.
A warrior has the obligation to go back to that place of his predilection every time he
taps power in order to store it there. He either goes there by means of walking or by
means of dreaming.”
Carlos Castaneda “Journey to Ixtlan”
When I came across this quote¬† by Don Juan in Carlos Castaneda’s “Journey to Ixtlan” I was very touched and grateful that someone had put in words what I have a hard time doing – an answer for why I keep coming back to the Chico, why this place is magical to me.
