There are many perspectives from which to approach this subject and I am writing from the human point of view. In line with the researcher that I used to be, I left no stone unturned when I sough god. There could be layers and layers in this story and I’ve decided to write down some of the insights I had on the way, in case some of it may be of assistance to you, dear reader. All these are my own opinions and I do not claim they are the only truth. Also, I am speaking from the point of view of the culture that I grew up in and intimately know, but the insights can be adjusted to other cultures because the carousels work on same principles anywhere.
There are many spaces on the inside of self, where a person finds themselves stuck on a carousel. It happily does what it was made to do, take you on an endless spin…round and round and round it goes into a forever. Endless circle of the sameness making you believe that this is the only way to be. Until that day when the light of awareness starts imbuing your inner worlds and you become uncomfortably aware of these inner carousel mechanics. And so it beings; you start peeling the many onion layers. Some of the deepest layers are cultural and religious and have to do with god. They are buried deep in the unconscious and from there they silently, but with great control, rule and direct your life choices without you even realising it. That is their whole point. It is the job of the carousel to not let you easily see and realise that there is a much grater reality out there. But you start taking off its contraptions and you step off its turning wheel. One of its major tools to keep you in its grip is the fear of the unknown. Belief in the limitation that its truth is the only truth there is. That there is nothing else out there.
And yet, when the time comes and you become aware of its game you will also find that there are many solutions to what seemed like a closed circle.
Before we talk about god, let’s look at some of the issues of archaeology which will make sense down the track. Imagine if you will, yourself thousand of years in the future, in another great civilisation. You, the future archaeologist, come upon what looks like ruins of a huge settlement. Let’s say this place is called New York in our times. The future you, comes across an ancient wall and there are the remains of a writing. You have learned enough about this particular ancient culture that you know what you are seeing is a writing style called graffiti. The scientists of your time were lucky to find some buried picture books that mentioned this. And so you know that there existed a short time, a few decades, long time ago from your perspective, where in some places of the world, this particular style was popular. The remains on the wall say “60’s Rock”. From your future archaeologist self, you know how huge your gaps in the knowledge of this civilisation are. And so you, and your many archaeologist friends, wonder what this writing could mean. “Did 60 rocks exist in this location in the past? Was it a temple? Did number 60 have some significant religious meaning? Did the New Yorkers have rituals with groups of 60? Did they create rock formations similar to Stonehenge that included 60 rocks? “
So you see, the future archaeologist you, can go on and on with millions of questions about this simple writing that you found. To know what the sign actually means, you would have to find and know so many details of the current culture of New York. You would know that “60’s Rock” is not a religious thing. That it has nothing to do with worshiping or temples. That it is a simple practical every day statement of somebody who likes the period that was the 1960’es. To know this, you would have to know that our current counting started 2020 years ago. You would have to know the writing, both words and numbers. You would have to know the English language. You would have to know that there were few the decades within which a term ‘rock or rocks’ is a slang term for ‘awesome’ in English language. You would also have to know that the short version for a decade is to use only the last two numbers, so 1960 becomes the 60’s. You would also have to know the events and movements that happened in the 1960’s, and what the decade meant to many parts of the world. You would have to know why this person might consider 1960’s as awesome. And so the list of what one must know as background information goes on and on just to understand this simple statement of ‘60’s rock’.
And so, these are some of the issues and considerations of archaeology of today when we look at the ancient civilisations and the remnants they left us. This is also why there are so many ideas, theories, different viewpoints, interpretations and versions within archaeology. And why a new dig, a new find, can completely change the theories on the ancient beliefs. And why some institutions have gone to great lengths to hide many ancient documents and artifacts, and why many things were destroyed in the past to hide the truths. They also depend on the agendas of individual people and / or organisations that may have vested interest in supporting particular versions.
A huge tendency is also to mythologise everything that the ancient civilisations have left us and to make everything into religious symbols and myths rather than to try and understand their different points of view. Or to understand the day to day implications. What if the ancients have not been writing mythology, what if those were real every day events? Your perception and understanding of history completely changes when you read the old texts as if they were real events rather than mythology. We may have to change how we look at what they wrote and drew. To see them with new and clear eyes. What if what we call 'ancient temples’ were just the palaces and dwellings of the Lords and not places of worship for example.
The ancient remnants that still exist on all the continents today, suggest that the people who built them, were aware of each other on different continents. That there was communication and travel between them. Common statements like ‘we thought the world was flat until Galileo’ are misleading if one includes the whole world into the ‘we’. If by ‘we’ you mean Europe in a certain time frame, then yes. But you can not include all civilisations in that ‘we’ because other civilisations and peoples never thought that Earth was flat. That is clear in their depictions of the solar system. These depictions are ancient and from all over the world. Even European civilisations prior to the darkening times didn’t think that Earth was flat. First records for Astrology in India date back to something like 6000 BC, so it was alive and well then. Who knows how long it was practiced by then, for remember, finding a record from a particular time period is just that. The first found record. It does not mean that the actual thing started then. Astrology as you know, is based on at least partial knowledge of the workings of the solar system and not on flat Earth. This is just one example. The ancient architecture is another example, the knowledge that went into building them is astounding and can not be replicated by modern machinery. And so we continue to open our mind to other possibilities.
The ancient civilisations have left us many remnants and writings in cuneiform, some on walls, others in scrolls etc. One of the interesting things that many don’t realise is that there is a break in the knowledge between the ancient civilisations and today's peoples. Modern archaeologists have had to work out how to read the cuneiform anew as the nations that live in those locations, no longer had that knowledge either. This seems to be the pattern all over the world for whatever reason. There are gaps instead of the continuation of the knowledge down the generations. Lets look at pyramids for example, and at how they were built. There are many modern theories but not the real working knowledge.
I have heard it said that currently there are only the Australian Indigenous people who at this stage have not had that thread broken. Their stories and dances of Dreamtime, talk in their own cultural way, of the events that are a direct knowledge and experience from their ancient past. They still understand the stories, the language, the symbolism of their ancestors. Although the current times are doing their best to destroy their living language which would destroy that thread.
There has been an interesting development in the location where I live. The local Indigenous Dreamtime story tells of a cataclysmic weather event 10.000 ago. During this event the shore has moved to where it is now. Apparently it used to be few kilometres deeper out into the ocean. This event created the foundations for the Great Barrier Reef, it grew on the sunken remnants of the coast. Before that, the modern western scientists theorised that the Reef slowly grew from the very bottom of the ocean as the sea waters rose. But in this last decade, the local western scientist have now changed their theory in line with the Dreamtime stories, and confirmed this with their own methods.
So what does all of this have to do with god you might ask. We are getting there.
Now that we have covered some of the difficulties and issues to do with archaeology , you can let go of the tight ideas of truth that were taught to you by mass consciousness. That any particular version is the correct one and that you have to tightly hold on to your version as if your life depended on it. You can relax your mind, you can relax and open yourself to different perspectives. To the realisation that perhaps what you thought about the history and by religion may be quite different to what happened. It doesn’t mean that you have to take on my ideas, you can make your own. All it means is that perspectives make huge difference, they can either be freeing or they can keep you on a carousel. Go ahead, play with this. It can be a lot of fun and not a serious subject at all.
Let's now tackle the incorrect translations. If you pick up the Bible today, you will be reading versions upon versions of translations. Or rather mistranslations, due to very specific self interested agendas of those translating. Of their own or those of their masters. This is not about going into a blame game, but it has to do with clarity and freedom. And truths. And discernment. The mass consciousness teaches you to put aside your own intuition, your own discernment, because it claims it has all the truths already figured out on your behalf. But the blessed discernment is when you look at the mess straight in its eye, which also means that you often times experience shocks at what you find. The shock at just how much you have been deceived by power and at what your culture is based on. When you look at just how much the truths were twisted on behalf of agendas of power and control. I experienced many intense emotions of all sorts as I was working my way through all of this over the years. It no longer needs to take that long, and that is the good news.
Christianity. It means so much to so many people and the wonderful feelings in the churches can be palpable because of the energies that people bring there. This article is not about putting down the wonderful experiences that people have within this religion. Or any other religion. It also does not mean one has to let go of beautiful traditions, rituals and churches or anything like that. This article has to do with the deeply embedded beliefs that god is on the outside. Separated from you. The wonderful feelings and experiences have more to do with the nature of who people are rather than the religion itself.
Christianity is largely based on the texts in the Bible. Bible is a collection of a number of ‘ancient books/texts’ which have been translated over and over. The powers in charge of translating have had huge self interested agendas. Did you even know that the old, more original texts, don’t even have the word ‘Satan’ in them for example? It has been added by the translators just for you. Yes you.
The texts that were used to translate the biblical documents come from different periods and cultures that are not as ancient, cultures that were not the originators of those texts, but have themselves inherited the stories. If you would want to know what the ancient civilisations thought, the ones that actually experienced and lived what is written in their texts, then you would want to read their versions. You would want to read the oldest versions that exist today.
The first book of the Bible, Genesis, which explains creation of the world and of the human, was an ancient Sumerian story. It predates Hebrew culture who inherited Adam, Eve and other characters of Genesis from the Sumerians. It was a highly developed civilisation that came up with the creation story as we know it today, with the names of Adam, Eve, Abel, Cain, Enoch, Noah etc. There are many more documents about these characters than is included in the Bible. It was the Sumerians who came up with the name of god; Yhwe, with Elohim who created the word in 7 d
