Early Man did alot of Shamanism as well,,,

they had no real specific deity,,,zero,,,

thing that always got me,,,

was how similar they were,,,

all over the world,,,

at different times,,,



there seems to be a theme on the conspiracy sites,,,

about the aliens or whatever out in space,,,

snatching souls,,,and how to try and get around it,,,

and if you don't,,,well,,,not nice,,,

it brought up some memories for me,,,


interesting this addresses the issue,,,

yeah I Know,,,Carlos was a college student,,,

but seems to have known some Arizona Native American,,,

or got this from somewhere,,,

anyway,,,

I am already given to the power that rules my fate.
And I cling to nothing, so I will have nothing to defend.
I have no thoughts, so I will see.
I fear nothing, so I will remember myself.
Detached and at ease,
I will dart past the Eagle to be free.



the story is they saw the "Eagle" consumes your awareness,,,

and recycles it,,,

the point of all the writings,,,

is to prevent this,,,

and the process to go through to become a "Warrior",,,

kinda a Gnostic,,,figure out how to save yourself,,,

anybody else read this "new" idea for the soul snatchers???,,,

you guys/gals are more up to speed on the current deals,,,

than I am...

Read his books as they came out

got pretty dizzy

However

he was also defining certain highs to the wrong plants

he had the high correct

and the plants correct

but he ascribed the wrong high to the wrong plant each time .

except for datura

which no description is possible for .

and yes
Shamanism was world wide and had many attributes correlative to
each geo-physics that matched each other no matter the distance
between them

The sensitive in a tribe would attune to the same frequency any other
would in their own area .

Drugs or other enhancers were not always necessary however .

th reason I ask
is that once the world believed in polytheism....
the Greek mythology,
native Americans etc etc etc

Egyptians.....


then all of the sudden Jesus comes along and says "ONE God"

and yet this "ONE God" has 3 parts....
supposedly the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Therefore our modern day "One God" theory is REALLY POLYtheism
because it is 3 in 1.
Isnt it?

Be fluid, at ease in whatever situation you find yourself. Your challenge is to deal with people with ease regardless of what they do to you. Remember what I have said, that it is of no use to be sad and complain and feel justified in doing so, believing that someone is always doing something to us. Nobody is doing anything to anybody, much less to a warrior.

You must let go of your desire to cling. The very same thing happened to me. I held on to things, such as the food I liked, the mountains where I lived, the people I used to enjoy talking to. But most of all I clung to the desire to be liked. Those things are our barriers to losing our human form. Our attention is trained to focus doggedly. That is the way we maintain the world. Now is the time to let go of all that. In order to lose your human form you should let go of all that ballast.

Yeah,,,Roger,,,the power plants,,,but just for a little bit,,,

just to show the change in perception,,,

then stop,,,but the popularity at the time was based on

those who did more,,,not sure many got the message,,,

or didn't want to hear it...


and sorry for the highjack,,,AnonK,,,

the Egyptians went Mono for a time,,,

and went back,,,one Pharaoh,,,

selling something different,,,or they got

tired of trying to keep track of it all,,,

and wanted an easy out...

He is especially noted for abandoning traditional Egyptian polytheism and introducing worship centered on the Aten, which is sometimes described as monotheistic or henotheistic. An early inscription likens the Aten to the sun as compared to stars, and later official language avoids calling the Aten a god, giving the solar deity a status above mere gods.

Modern interest in Akhenaten and his queen, Nefertiti, comes partly from his connection with Tutankhamun, partly from the unique style and high quality of the pictorial arts he patronized, and partly from ongoing interest in the religion he attempted to establish.

The claim: Monotheism, the belief in one god, is not a Hebrew original, but was borrowed from the Pharaoh Akhenaten.

Sun god,,,not even close...


Losing the human form brings the freedom to remember your self. Losing the human form is like a spiral. It gives you the freedom to remember and this in turn makes you even freer.

A warrior knows that he is waiting and knows also what he is waiting for, and while he waits he feasts his eyes on the world. The ultimate accomplishment of a warrior is joy.

I've read some interesting things that make me think Moses and Akhenaten may be the same person.

Detachment does not automatically mean wisdom, but it is nonetheless, an advantage because it allows the warrior to pause momentarily to reassess situations, to reconsider positions. In order to use that extra moment consistently and correctly, however, a warrior has to struggle unyieldingly for a lifetime.
A warrior is someone who seeks freedom. Sadness is not freedom. We must snap out of it. Having a sense of detachment entails having a moment's pause to reassess situations.
Formlessness is, if anything, a detriment to sobriety and levelheadedness. An aspect of being detached, the capacity to become immersed in whatever one is doing, naturally extends to everything one does, including being inconsistent, and outright petty. The advantage of being formless is that it allows us a moment's pause, providing that we have the self-discipline and courage to utilize it.

We unwittingly focus on fear and distrust, as if those were the only possible options available to us, while all along we have the alternative of deliberately centering our attention on the opposite, the mystery, the wonder of what is happening to us.
