Bless Me, Ultima

Where does the end of the novel leave Antonio?

What has he learned? How has he grown older or wiser through the course of these events? Is there a quote that supports any of this?

When Ultima dies, Antonio is finally able to understand this link between change and violence. His time working on the Luna farm has taught him the importance of harmony in nature, and he realizes that Ultima’s death will reinstate the natural harmony of the world. He no longer fears death because he knows that it is a natural cycle of life and a change that is necessary for life to continue.
