Enclosed are writings from Ramsey Muniz, which cite sources about our ancient spiritual roots. Please forward to advocates and friends.–Irma L. Muniz
"What do you want, mi gente? For me to do the work that will be applauded on earth, or for me to live, gnawed by rancor, without the sound of applause, without the profits of one who bows low and serene and doing the work whose applause we will not live to hear?"
Mexicano vemmana (sacrificio) does not ever reject any form of struggle movement. Even in this mode of dark imprisonment I move with it. At the end, when the sun sets and the dawn rises, it will matter because my sacrifice for my people is revolutionary
in a cultural and spiritual manner. It is written and verily I
say unto you that Mexicano cultural/spiritual power is greater
than power on behalf of present day tyranny and oppression because our power from the very beginning of our creation as a race, as Mexicanos from Aztlan and our Holy Land of Mexico, real power comes from conviction which produces uncompromising action from our hearts.
It also produces vemmana "sacrifice" against the oppression in everyday aspects of nuestra gente. Only through the rising or our cultural and spiritual power will we as a people will end oppression in the present 21st century!
Our ancient Mexicano history reveals that throughout our struggle to the present, our vemmana never takes a step back. Our sacrificio for liberation, justice, or the present day demands the return of our land (Aztlan). It doesn’t back up in the face of a threat, confinement, or when the political odds are against us in America. Historically, it is not the nature of vemmana (whether through traditional Latino/Hispanic leadership or their Anglo-American sponsors) to back up in the face of anything when it pertains to our liberation as humans in this world of ours.
Mexicano history reveals that because of our sacrifices it recognizes only cultural/spiritual power of today’s movement. De cierto les digo, "Paradise is under the shadow of our Mexicano cultural/spiritual revolution." Our Mexicano present day cultural/spiritual holy struggle is la raza’s most positive form of prayer. Yet the greatest Mexicano holy struggle from the past to the future is the spreading of truth. This is our 21st century Mexicano holy struggle for liberation, land, and justice. En verdad, from the dungeons of America les digo, "Mexi kan yn neltihuani, neltihua Mexi. Esto quiere decir, "El soldado Mexicano/Mexicana (Kan) de Dios (Mexi) representa la verdad (Neltihuani), la verdad de Dios (Neltihuamexi).
In our ancient writings and manuscripts we find in "La Monarquia Indiana" (p. 293 del primer tomo), declara Torquemada que "los mismos naturales afirman que Mexi (God) es el Dios principal." For those who continue to deny who they are and/or where they come from or what they should be called, refer to "La Monarquia Indiana" p. 79. See where it is written, "Ya estais apartados, y segregados de los demas y asi quiero, que como escogidos mios, ya no os llameis Aztecas, sino Mexicas (Mexicanos). Why is it that all races on this earth can refer to their ancient past in confirming the truth of who they are and the origins of their name?
Yet we have been labeled, named, and branded with every possible name except that which reflects what we truly are and were from the beginning of our creation of the mighty race that we are * Mexicanos! Until we return to who we really are we will continue to be oppressed and divided by those who seek to oppress us in all facets of life. This is the reason that throughout all Aztlan and in our Holy Land of Mexico our spiritual/cultural revolution has become a reality in that we are finally accepting and confirming that we are one * todos somos uno!
The one great spiritual/cultural embracing quality that is
absolutely necessary for the task of restoring our land of Aztlan to its original state of creation is the consciousness of such a mission.
Hermanos y Hermanas, the consciousness of such a mission cannot come from human resolve. It can come only as the emanation of a super personal Mexicano soul, the organ of a higher destiny – a spiritual divinity. That super personal soul is referred to as Mexicayotl (consciousness), our divine Nahuatl organ. Nahuatl power, from its ancient creation to the present, is spiritual in origin. In our history, going from the spiritual to the political is but one step. Solamente por medio de Mexicayotl podemos realizar la unificacion espiritual de Aztlan.
The Nahuatlan will to power, is destined to shield against the
mighty oppression confronting Mexicanos in Aztlan and Holy Land of Mexico. The blow that the oppressor historically has dealt the Nahuatlan organism is well known. The values of this nsymbiosis are purely anti-Mexicano spirituality, anti-raza, anti-culture, anti-heroic, anti-Mexicayotl. They appeal to the worst element in the Nahuatlan race and to the worst in every individual Nahuatlan. With the spiritual ethical values of "Maya-illusion," the oppressor symbiosis is planning
to oppress the Nahuatlan organism, which is la raza. But the past can never destroy the future — nunca. It can only attempt
to thwart it. That means that oppression imposing the anti-cultural interregnum on Aztlan and therein lies the possibility that for Aztlan will follow decades of degradation, chaos, darkness, stultification, miseria, and wasting away. Mi gente, que vamos hacer? Mis Hermanos y Hermanas Mexicanos, remember that our most powerful Mexicano spiritual mobilization is Mexicayotl (consciousness)!
The motivation of the global power struggle in our age of
absolute politics lies in cultura! The time has come for us to return to our spiritual/cultural power within the masses of our people. The oppressor and so-called leaders used by the oppressor must come to understand that we of the 21st century have decided to seize the time of our cultural liberation and land. Speak to us about our freedom, our education, justice, and about a plan for the ultimate return of our land. The issue of Aztlan will never cease to be forgotten until it is resolved by the masses of our people here in America and our sisters and brothers from our Holy Land of Mexico. We must never forget
that we are and were Mexi’s (God’s) chosen people from the beginning.
