Original Entries Estimated around 100 BC


Entry 1: Day of 1 Jaguar, Rain Season


Today, I mark the beginning of a sacred journey, guided by the dreams bestowed by the feathered serpent. I, Atl Xolotl, chosen shaman of our tribe, venture into the deep jungles that the spirits whisper of—a place of great power and profound mystery, known only to those who listen to the earth’s pulse. Blessed by the elders and the spirits of our ancestors, I take the path less trodden, toward the heart where the earth and sky sing.


Entry 2: Day of 3 Monkey, Rain Season


Many suns have passed as we trekked through the dense embrace of the jungle, a verdant realm where the roots of the sky trees delve deep and the cries of its creatures fill the air with life’s song. We have reached the monoliths carved by no known hand, their faces shaped into the visage of the Rain God, Tlaloc. Here, I performed the rituals of passage, offering jade and quetzal feathers, ensuring our journey is watched over by the gods.


Entry 3: Day of 5 Reed, Rain Season


The journey has led us to ruins older than the tales told by the fireside. Massive stone heads, as tall as five men, gaze solemnly through the jungle, their eyes set in eternal vigilance. We camp beneath their shadow, and as night envelops us, the stars weave tales of ancient times. The spirits are restless here; they speak in the rustling leaves, telling of battles fought and wisdom gained.


Entry 4: Day of 9 Wind, Rain Season


We reached a clearing today, where the earth breathes mist and secrets. At its center, a dark pool reflects not the jungle, but a starlit sky even under the heat of the noon sun. The air thrums with power, the kind told in sacred whispers. I, alone, approached the edge, and the waters spoke of a time before man, when gods laid the foundations of the world. Their voices echo in the water’s ebb.


Entry 5: Day of 11 Alligator, Rain Season


Last night, the visions were strong. They carried me into the depths of the cosmos, where the Dance of Creation unfolded. The pool, a gateway of sorts, revealed the interconnectedness of all life, the cycles of birth and death, overseen by the dual god of night and day. The understanding of such mysteries requires sacrifices; thus, I have prepared offerings of my own essence.


Entry 6: Day of 13 Rabbit, Rain Season


The ceremony at the pool brought forth the Serpent of the Infinite, a manifestation of knowledge and eternity. Its coils seemed to encircle the very fabric of reality, its eyes piercing the veils of mortality. The deity imparted knowledge, foretelling the rise and fall of empires yet to be, and the eternal cycle of the suns. I am tasked to guard these truths, a beacon for those who will one day seek enlightenment.


Final Entry: Day of 1 Jaguar, Dry Season


My journey is at its end, but a new path unfolds — that of the guardian of these sacred mysteries. I have inscribed the visions and divine dialogues upon the walls of my temple, hidden deep within the cloak of the jungle. These scrolls shall remain here, protected by the wilderness and the spirits that roam it. Only those chosen by the cosmos may find their way here, tracing the footsteps of the stars.

The Scrolls of Atl Xolotl,
though eroded by time and the relentless embrace of the jungle,
were eventually uncovered by descendants of the Olmec,
who revered them as profound sacred texts.
They hinted at an understanding of the universe that transcended their era,
suggesting a deep connection with cosmic and earthly cycles that would influence Mesoamerican thought for centuries.
Atl Xolotl’s words,
etched in stone and spirit,
continued to resonate as a testament to the profound spiritual legacy of the ancient jungles.
