At the beginning of time, Beings rose from the earth and exclaimed, “I Am”!  They each sang out their name, I am Snake, I am kangaroo.
Thus, they created their sacred songs and began moving across the barren earth bringing all things into being  by mentioning their name.

As they walked about, they sang mountains, rivers and all beings into existence. Wherever they went they created the Dream time. After all things were created, the beings sang themselves back into the earth where they can be seen as land formations. Sleeping.

Aboriginal art
really involves story telling, myths, rituals, sorcery, and magic, where the artist describes their Dreaming, the stories of creation, their beliefs, and their spirituality. The strong relationship between the ancestral beings of the
‘time before time’, the Dreamtime, with the landscape and every living creature they created forms the basis for this
art. The ancestral spirits came to a land devoid of features and created everything — the rivers, hills, plants, animals,
people, and the relationships between people and animals. When finished, they changed into landforms, animals, stars,
or other objects. To the Aboriginal people, the past is still alive and will remain so into the future

Camel Killed by UFO

There’s a lot of stuff falling from the sky these days, but it usually passes with little more than a blurb and a shrug. Last year, however, a news flash out of Somalia prompted Frank Warren to do a double-take.

Your store for things from the OTHER SIDE.

According to Shabelle Radio, something crashed outside a town called Buulo Burde in March 2007 and allegedly killed a grazing camel upon impact. The report stated, somewhat awkwardly, that the thing glittered during the day and “in the nighttime it turns lights and speaks a strange language which can’t be understood by the villagers.”

Warren, who runs a UFO Web site in Sacramento, posted the news immediately. What intrigued him most were the
government visitors tuning into the story: U.S. Central Command, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, NASA/Cleveland, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory.

“They all stacked up on top of each other within minutes, and I can guarantee you that was no accident,” says
Warren. “It may have been something as simple as somebody making a call to a friend and saying, ‘Hey, check this out.’ But who knows.”

Warren says the Somalian mystery crackled along the Internet for about 72 hours. “Then it went black. There was no more news. I tried to track it through local forums asking, ‘Have you heard any more?’ and they said no. I even e-mailed one of the local papers and never heard back.”

Lacking additional data, Warren suspects what slammed into east Africa was a spy satellite, and that it was recovered by rapid-response teams. He hasn’t seen such a concentrated crush of government traffic before or
since. But authority-type people are clearly trolling his page for the latest developments on the UFO frontier.

In today’s world, many resort to abusing drugs and alcohol, why are so many becoming addicted and not only destroying their lives but the lives of others around them as well?

I saw this many time while touring the outback, at this particular site there were hundreds of hypodermic needles floating in the river.

The aborigines have lost their way, not only is their way of life disappearing, but after living in the bush for thousands of years, that way of life is becoming not only impossible but unpopular as well. The problem is that after living for that long in the bush, it is hard for them to adapt to another way of life.

Once example is that instead of sleeping in the free housing supplied by the government, from force of habit, the aborigines will continue to sleep outside on the ground.

The Australian government has tried to help by providing them everything that is needed, but in consequence  the end result has been  they don’t need to work.

Not only do they not have the skills for modern day living, there is no motive to improve since everything is given them. The end result is a high rate of drug and alcohol use.

It is a problem that will probably only be solved after several generations have passed and they gradually adapt to a new way of life.

Generosity

Generosity: Access to an Abundance Mentality

How does generosity impact our ability to fully
experience living life from an abundance
mentality?  Can knowing this allow us to fully
receive all the wealth possible for us?

Generosity is expressed many different ways and
each of those ways usually has something to do
with us giving something of ourselves –  whether
it is money, time, compassion, etc. – and
expecting nothing  in return. True generosity is
giving freely both to ourselves and to  others
and is one of the best ways to cultivate an
abundance mentality.

One way of looking at this is that generosity is
really a two way street. Being able to be
generous with yourself is just as important as
being  generous with those around you. If most
people are happy to give to  others yet reluctant
to receive, it creates an imbalance that can
block  the flow of abundance.

Many people are willing to give to others freely
but when offered the same thing, they deflect it.
For example, has someone ever paid you  a
compliment only to have you brush it off by
saying something like  “Oh, it was nothing”, or
“It was only because of my great team.” or  some
similar statement?

Ask yourself this question…how can I expect to
receive a million dollars in revenue from my
business or experience the love of my  life if I
am unable to even accept a compliment?

This brings to mind a client who had suffered a
very traumatic experience with her family a
number of years ago. As a result of her
experience, she cut herself off from everyone,
and felt totally alone.  Even people close to her
were afraid to help her or even acknowledge  what
had happened. She lived this way for seventeen
years – alone,  isolated, and suffering.

One week I gave her an assignment to go out and
ask someone to acknowledge her for anything she
wanted to be acknowledged for. A week later, she
had still not done the assignment, a clear sign
that  this was an area of resistance for her.  I
told her to repeat the  assignment, this time
asking three people to acknowledge her.  Her
reaction to this was sheer terror, but
understanding that what  we resist will persist,
she took the coaching and did the assignment.

The next time we talked, her whole world had
shifted.  She had done the assignment and asked
three people to acknowledge her. She  actually
saw that people had wanted to help her for the
last seventeen  years but didn’t know what she
needed because she never asked for  help. She had
been stuck in a limiting belief that ‘It’s not
polite to ask’  and that she should wait until
it’s offered. She realized that she had  never
been taught how to ask for what she wanted and
was blocking  herself from the abundance of help
and support that had been there all along.

Sometimes, all that is required for us to attain
that which we most desire is to get that extra
push and encouragement from a coach, someone who
is there on our behalf, looking out for our best
interests. Once my client  was able to break
through her resistance, she was able to ask for
what  she wanted – a truly generous act – and was
then able to be a part of  the flow of wealth and
abundance that is available to us all.

Tropic of Capricorn

Tropic of Capricorn

Not far north of Alice Springs is this marker signifying the Tropic of Capricorn, or the spot that the tropics are entered in the southern hemisphere.

Your favorite AUSSIE store

Entering this zone one doesn’t get the feeling normally associated with the tropics,with temperatures hovering near 100 F and humidity a sweltering 3 % , and not a jungle within a thousand miles, one would never realize that he or she is in the tropics!
The Tropic of Capricorn lies 23 degrees 26′ 22″ south of the Equator, and marks the most southerly latitude at which the sun can appear directly overhead at noon. This event occurs at the December Solstice, when the southern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun to its maximum extent. The next day the sun starts it’s northern journey towards the Tropic of Cancer, arriving on the summer solstice.

Seems kind of boring to me, just going back and forth through eternity.

Democrats Admit: Saddam Harbored Terrorists

Just hours after Senator Clinton dropped out of the
race, and the news cycle was swamped with never-ending coverage of the
inevitable doing the inevitable something was released under the radar.

 

Back in 2004 the Senate Intelligence Committee began an
investigation into pre-war intelligence regarding Saddam’s regime, the
threat it posed, and how the intelligence was handled.  Democrats on
the committee did their best to politicize the investigation and give
it the appearance of a precursor to impeachment of President Bush under
some sort of Bush Lied conspiracy theory.  They did this for purely
political purposes despite being contrary to national interests.  Again
and again the committee came out with report after report.  Each report
showed that the problems with pre-war intelligence regarding Saddam’s
regime was not some grand conspiracy by a President who can barely read
a teleprompter, but rather the result of bad intelligence from agencies
that were as on the ball in 2002 and 2003 as they were on 9/11/2001;
they were out of touch, undermanned, ill-equipped, budget constrained,
and bureaucratically strangled.

In October of 2006, on the eve of the midterm elections, Senate
minority leader Harry Reid pulled a big political PR stunt and ordered
the doors of the Senate closed to discuss the classified elements of
the investigation.  Publicly, he claimed it wasn’t a stunt, but rather
that the Bush Administration was holding up the committee’s report to
avoid embarassment and to skew the upcoming elections.  In those
elections, Democrats took over the House, the Senate, and the
Committee, then…instead of releasing it, they sat on it for almost two
years.  Why?  Because they didn’t want the reality to make the news:
that it was Democrats who were deliberately misleading the American
people about the casus belli for the invasion of Iraq: the threat of an
Iraqi/Al Queda WMD attack on the United States.

Now, when everyone else was watching Hillary’s 1/2 hour speech again
and again and again, on 3 cable networks and every other news outlet,
the Democratic-controlled committee released the final report on
pre-war intelligence about Saddam’s regime.   In that report…they
finally admit that YES

Saddam’s regime was in fact harboring Al Queda groups and leaders, meeting with Al Queda groups and leaders, and more.
Thomas Joeclnyfires
the first shot at sinking the “no connections” lie that the Democratic
Party has deliberately created and perpetuated for their political
gains at national expense.  Naysayers will point to the source as
partisan, but the article cited gives plenty of quotes in proper
context for one to form an unbiased opinion, and to see with clarity
that the real misleading regarding the war in Iraq, hasn’t come from
the Bush Administration’s 6months of pre-war rhetoric, but from the
Democratic Party’s leaders and flag bearers over the past 66 months.
