The Aboriginal Dream Time

The aborigines of Australia

The Dream time is very detailed and includes every aspect of the aboriginal life.

The aborigine who has been taught the Dream Time is very intuitive and extremely aware of his surroundings, Crocodile Dundee was all Hollywood, but not very far off on this perspective.

The Dream time has different meanings, sometimes you are just using memory, or if  into the  future it is imagination. Dream time is just anytime past or any experience.

All spiritual beings, instead of settling earth they say they dreamed it, when you go on trip, you dream it up first.

All travel costs in energy, time, and money.

Puerto Rico: El Yunique

The beautiful island of Puerto Rico

The only tropical rain forest in the United States, El Yunique, located in Puerto Rico. At nearly 29,000 acres, it is one of the smallest in size, yet one of the most biologically diverse of the national forests hosting hundreds of animal and plant species, some of which are found only here.

Yokahu Tower located in El Yunique, The Yokahú Tower is one of the two observation towers located in the park. Constructed in 1963, it is widely considered the better of the two with regard to the view offered.

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.

Newton’s Definition of God

a personal spiritual journey of self-discovery.

I’m not sure where I found this, but it is Newton’s definition of God.

The most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful being. And if the fixed stars are the centres of like systems, these, being formed by the like wise counsel, must be all subject to the dominion of one; especially since the light of the fixed stars is of the same nature with the light of the sun, and from every system light passes into all the other systems; and lest the systems of fixed stars should, by their gravity, fall on each other, he hath placed those systems at immense distances from one another. This being governs all things, not as the soul of the world, but as Lord over all; and on account of his dominion he is wont to be called the Lord God or Universal Ruler, for God is a relative word, and has a respect to servants; and Deity is the dominion of God not over his own body, as those imagine who fancy God to be the soul of the world, but over servants. The Supreme Being is eternal, infinite, absolutely perfect, omnipotent and omniscient . . . We know him only by his most wise and excellent contrivances of things and final causes.34 Newton had provided another description which did not conflict with my views of what a God could be – eternal, infinite, absolutely perfect, omnipotent and omniscient, yet refraining from miraculous meddling with the laws of physics. My Supreme Being was confirmed as Guardian of the Laws of Physics.

Mysterious Egypt, land of a thousand years

Ancient Memphis was founded in 2925 BCE by King Menes and was long known as the capital of Egypt and as such was the home to many of the early pharaohs including Ramses II.

Ramses II is generally believed to have been the Pharaoh during the Exodus, and as a consequence, many artifacts from Ramses time still adorn the countryside. Ramses II, powerful and ambitious, was the third ruler of the 19th dynasty.

The aborigines of Australia

Aborigines are the first people to live in a land. When you are born, the first animal your mother sees becomes your totem.Same totems can’t marry, Inbreeds become stupid.

After death, they were buried in graves, cremated, embalmed, or they wrapped up the bones and put them in a tree. Some tribes cut off their heads and buried it elsewhere.

Aboriginal Culture: Raising the Young

 

In the past only healthy babies were kept, they were suckled for seven years and if the mother couldn’t keep up with work and the child, the baby was killed. Most tribes contained 20- 30 people, with 4-5 in each family. Some lived to be 100 years old and some had more than one wife. If a husband passed away, many times the wife and family would be supported by another male.

It took about six acres of land to support one person, they survived by eating whatever was available, including termites, ants, and grub worms.

We even had the chance to eat a grub worm, it was prepared in the usual fashion, roasted in an open pit fire, it wasn’t too bad, tasted like chicken.

If the tribe became too large and there wasn’t enough food, the weaker ones were either killed or left to die.

In the dry years, women would not ovulate. They would have zero population growth. Sometimes the droughts would last 10 years, and there would be no children born during that time. The lack of food and environmental stress ruined the sex drive.

When a woman first felt the kick of her child, the first animal they saw was believed to be its totem or spirit animal, that is the closest source of energy. It could be a snake, kangaroo or anything.

The Pyramid of Unas

 

King Djoser was the first or second king of the 3rd dynasty of the old kingdom and ruled around 2650 B.C. He ruled for 19 years, which is believed long enough for his pyramid to have been completed before his death. His pyramid is unique in the fact it was built in 6 steps. it is the only pyramid in Egypt that was constructed in this way.

Unas built his pyramid, originally called “Beautiful are the Places of Unas”, near Djoser’s pyramid in Saqqara. Djoser ruled in the mid-2300s B.C. When he passed, the 5th dynasty came to an end, and although he had two queens(Nebet and Khenut) he probably had no sons.

Many ceremonies were performed in the pyramid of Unas that resembled the Masonic ceremonies of today.
