El s’mbolo de Dulcinea/Gaia:

 

En los "esp’ritus sensibles", habitualmente, sus ÒemocionesÓ son comœnmente utilizadas, manipuladas por terceros. El "pathos"(¹ατοσ= la pasi—n, sendero, camino) es "atra’do", "distra’do" (como dir’a Tomas Merton), por distintos centros de gravedad EXTERNOS a nosotros mismos : "ideolog’as", Òcampa–as pol’ticasÓ que, para aprovechar la energ’a del alma humana hacen uso de cualesquier Òcausa justaÓ. TambiŽn son atra’das por identificaci—n con ÒyoesÓ internos, como "me siento mal, tengo "c—lera", tengo "pena", estoy "triste", o "estoy alegre", producidos por nuestras propias "asociaciones" subjetivas. La Novela de Caballer’a, y el "amor cortesano" de los inicios del Renacimiento, la "Alquimia" de aquellas Žpocas, esa otra Žpoca de cambio y Apocalipsis (¹οκάλυψις= Revelaci—n de lo Alto), NOS PROVEE DE UNA HERRAMIENTA, DE UNA "CLAVE", de una "tŽcnica" que EVITA QUE NUESTRA ENERGêA VITAL, nuestra "l’bido" sea consumida, sea absorbida, tragada, por cualquier evento EXTERNO a nosotros, imaginario e interno o supuestamente "REAL" y externo. Por m‡s JUSTIFICADO e incluso "ALTRUISTA" que Žste sea. No voy a "salvar" a ninguna humanidad sin antes "salvarme" a m’ mismo (y la raz—n me dicta que si creo que debo hacerlo antes debo poseer la energ’a suficiente yo mismo). Esta CLAVE, esta tŽcnica, este "truco" de aquŽl Mago del Tar—t, es aquŽl que emple— el QUIJOTE: ƒl se estableci— una META, un OBJETIVO para sus emociones, las que no ser’an dirigidas por nada ni por nadie, sino por aquella elegida por el Hidalgo Caballero, con el prop—sito de mantener su coraz—n abierto, no cerrado:ÇSe cree, que en un lugar cerca del suyo hab’a una moza labradora de muy buen parecer, de quien Žl un tiempo anduvo enamorado, aunque, segœn se entiende, ella jam‡s lo supo ni le dio cuenta de ello.È ÇLlam‡base Aldonza Lorenzo, y a Žsta le pareci— ser bien darle t’tulo de se–ora de sus pensamientos; y, busc‡ndole nombre que no desdijese mucho del suyo y que tirase y se encaminase al de princesa y gran se–ora, vino a llamarla 'Dulcinea del Toboso' porque era natural del Toboso: nombre, a su parecer, mœsico, peregrino y significativo, como todos los dem‡s que a Žl y a sus cosas hab’a puesto.ÈAl elegir este "pat—s", este "intento" indeclinable e insustituible, esta caballeresca empresa, este hiero gamos (ερς γάμος, ερογαμία) devolv’a la creaci—n del mundo, la manifestaci—n del "logos" hasta sus dos componentes iniciales, Ad‡n y Eva, retrotrayŽndolos, en su aventura, hasta retornar al "pardes"(para’so) original.

 

The symbol of Dulcinea/Gaia:

 

In those "sensitive spirits" emotions are commonly utilized, manipulated by third parties. The "pathos" (¹ατοσ = passion, road, path) is "attracted", "distracted" (as Thomas Merton would say), by different centers of gravity external to ourselves: "ideologies", political campaigns, ingeniously "produced" in order to take the power , making use of any Òjust causeÓ. These also got identified with the several ÒegosÓ as "I am feeling bad", I feel "anger", I am "sad", or "I am happy", produced by our own subjective "associations". The Novel of Cavalry, and the "courtly love" of the early Renaissance, the "Alchemy" of those epochs, that other epoch of change and Apocalypse (¹οκάλυψις = Revelation from above), PROVIDES OF A TOOL, A KEY ", of a" technique "that impedes OUR VITAL ENERGY, our" libido " to be consumed, absorbed, swallowed, by any EXTERNAL event to us, imaginary and internal or supposedly" real " and external. It does not matter how JUSTIFIED or even "ALTRUISTIC" that this may be. I will not "save" any humanity without first "saving myself" (and reason tells me that if I think I should do it before I must possess enough energy myself).

This key, this technique, this "trick" of that Mage (Μαγοσ) of Tarot, is the one that used the QUIXOTE in order to keep his heart "open" and not closed: He established a GOAL, a TARGET for his emotions, which would not be directed by anything or anyone, but by that chosen by the Hidalgo Caballero himself:

"It is believed that in a place near his own there was a working girl of very good opinion, whom he had once been in love with, although, as it is understood, she never knew him or [in some editions] accounted for.

She was called Aldonza Lorenzo, and it seemed to him that it was well to give her the title of mistress of her thoughts; And, looking for a name that he did not throw away much of his own, and that he would throw himself and go to that of a princess and a great lady, he came to call her 'Dulcinea del Toboso', because it was a native name of El Toboso: a musician, a pilgrim, All the others that he and his things had set. "

By choosing this "pathos", this irreplaceable and indeclinable "Intent", this chivalrous enterprise, this hiero gamos (ερς γάμος, ερογαμία) returned the creation of the world, the manifestation of the "logos" to its two initial components, Adam and Eve, retrograding them, in its Adventure, until returning to the original "pardes" (paradise).
