CHAPTER XXII - The Living Huitzilopochtli

parrot. And to one, the dead carcase will ever smell good; to the other, the fruit.
`Priests who will come to me do not forsake either faith or God. They change their manner of speech and vestments, as the peon calls with one cry to the oxen, and with another cry to the mules. Each responds to its own call in its own way '
To the socialists and agitators he wrote:
`What do you want? Would you make all men as you are? And when every peon in Mexico wears an American suit of clothes and shiny black shoes, and looks for life in the newspaper and for his manhood to the government, will you be satisfied? Did the government, then, give you your manhood, that you expect it to give it to these others?
`It is time to forget. It is time to put away the grudge and the pity. No man was ever the better for being pitied, and every man is the worse for a grudge.
'We, can do nothing with life, except live it.
`Let us seek life where it is to be found. And, having found it, life will solve the problems. But every time we deny the living life, in order to solve a _problem, we cause ten problems to spring up where was one before. Solving the problems of the people, we lose the people in a poisonous forest of problems.
`Life makes, and moulds, and changes the problem. The problem will always be there, and will always be different. So nothing can be solved, even by life and living, for life dissolves and resolves, solving it leaves alone.
`Therefore we turn to life; and from the clock to the sun and from metal to membrane.
`This way we hope the problem will dissolve, since it can never be solved. When men seek life first, they will not seek land nor gold. The land will lie on the lap of the gods, where men lie. And if the old communal system comes back, and the village and the land are one, it will be very good. For truly, no man can possess lands.
`But when we are deep in a bog, it is no use attempting to gallop. We can only wade out with toil. And in our haste to have a child, it is no good tearing the babe from the womb.
'Seek life, and life will bring the change.
'Seek life itself, even pause at dawn and at sunset, and life will come back into us and prompt us through the transitions
