Stargates, Ancient Rituals, And Those Invited Through …
Metaphysical nonsense, or high-tech mechanisms built by "the gods"?
Stargates, Ancient Rituals, And Those Invited Through The Portal
by Thomas Horn (Author of "The Ahriman Gate"), RNU - Opinions & Editorials.
|Some wondered of "metaphysical" stargates where astral soul projection could occur while others had questions about etheric energy alignments between points in interstellar space allowing vibrational energies to pass through distances of space along the space-time continuum. This is what I was talking about from the moment I mentioned time-dimensional doorways, and the entities that can and do move through them. |

Munro believes that an enormously powerful ley line runs through Rosslyn and that its presence has led to the construction of many different sacred sites here through the millennia. He thinks that Picts, Druids and Romans all venerated this site and that Sir William Sinclair, the man who built Rosslyn in 1446, choose to build here to tap into its powerful properties.

| "The whole chapel is completely straight forward," says Oxbrow. "If people continue to fictionalise history it's a bad thing, not least because the real stories are more interesting. Anything else about the Templars is just rubbish built on sand."|

In the opening pages of Dan Brown's blockbuster novel, The Da Vinci Code, he claims: "Fact... all descriptions of artwork, architecture, documents and secret rituals in this novel are accurate." Not so, according to the Da Vinci code breakers, Ian and Mark. "The Da Vinci Code is a great book but it doesn't tell the truth," says Ian. Here, Ian and Mark set the record straight.

|Perhaps the most famous carving in the whole of the chapel is the Apprentice Pillar. It is said that when the master mason saw the extraordinary work of his apprentice, he killed him in a jealous rage. High on the ceiling it is believed that the apprentice's head is remembered in a stone carving. The master mason too is carved - his gaze fixed forever on the pillar that consumed him with jealousy.|

|Kalachakra means Time-Wheel, as "Kāla" is Sanskrit for Time and "Chakra" (or Cakra) is Wheel in Sanskrit (In Tibetan his name is dus.'khor). It is also translated as Time-Cycles. Much in this tradition revolves around the concept of time and cycles: from the cycles of the planets, to the cycles of our breath and the practice of controlling the most subtle energies within one's body on the path to enlightenment. The Kalachakra deity represents omniscience, as everything is under the influence of time, he is time and therefore knows all. Similarly, the wheel is beginningless and endless.|
International Kalachakra Network
In Tibet, the Kalachakra astrological system forms one of the main building blocks to compose astrological calendars. The astrology in the Kalachakra is not unlike the Western system, where for example, complicated calculations are required to determine e.g. the exact location of the planets.
Guidelines for the Kalachakra Initiation
|From beginning to end, attending a Kalachakra initiation involves visualization. As a participant, we visualize the teacher, the place, ourselves and everyone around us in special ways. As an observer, if we wish to gain the maximum from our experience of attending, we can also do likewise. Therefore, let us begin our discussion by examining what visualization means and how to do it.|
First of all, the English word "visualization" does not convey the full meaning of the Sanskrit or Tibetan term, since it connotes working only with the visual sphere. Visualization practice, however, involves sights, sounds, fragrances, tastes, physical sensations, mental feelings such as joy, and senses of who and where we are, what is around us and what is happening. The word "imagination" is perhaps closer to the meaning. Imagining is not just an intellectual activity of trying to bring into focus tiny details of a mental image. It is a process of complete transformation, involving equally the mind, heart, feelings, sense of identity and spatial orientation.

Your Divine Destiny
This is an interesting article - but if someone claims to receive messages from Archangel Michael - I am very critical.
We know it is difficult for you to not focus on the negativity and destruction occurring in the world, but we ask you to also be aware that all of those who have experienced these cataclysmic events agreed at a soul level to make the supreme sacrifice so that you and the Earth can move forward.
Your Divine Destiny
During the coming years many prophecies, both positive and negative, will come forth and it is important how you perceive and accept what is being said. Yes, each and every thought, expression and action has an energetic signature and adds to or detracts from the overall radiance of the Earth. The Earth is being monitored carefully as well, beloveds, to see when your planet will be ready to move forward to the next level of illumination. As you all are aware, there has been much devastation and cleansing on the Earth over the past decades and, yes, it will continue as a necessary part of the overall plan for the greatest good of all.

A Tribute to Hinduism
There are no physical remains of ancient Indian aircraft technology but references to ancient flying machines are commonplace in the ancient Indian texts. Several popular ancient epics describe their use in warfare. Depending on one's point of view, either it contains some of the earliest known science fiction, or it records conflict between beings with weapons as powerful and advanced as anything used today.
Hinduism is often labeled as a religion of 330 million gods. This misunderstanding arises when people fail to grasp the symbolism of the Hindu pantheon.
|In the Vedic literature of India, there are many descriptions of flying machines that are generally called Vimanas. India's national epic, The Mahabharata, is a poem of vast length and complexity. According to Dr. Vyacheslav Zaitsev: "the holy Indian Sages, the Ramayana for one, tell of "Two storied celestial chariots with many windows" "They roar like off into the sky until they appear like comets." The Mahabharata and various Sanskrit books describe at length these chariots, "powered by winged lighting...it was a ship that soared into the air, flying to both the solar and stellar regions." |
Hindus worship the nameless and formless Supreme Reality (Bramh) by various names and forms. These different aspects of one reality are symbolized by the many gods and goddesses of Hinduism. For example, Brahma (not to be confused with the over-arching Bramh) is that reality in its role as creator of the universe; in Vishnu it is seen as the preserver and the upholder of the universe; and Shiva is that same reality viewed as the principle of transcendence which will one day 'destroy' the universe. These are the Trimurti, the ' three forms,' and they are not so much different gods as different ways of looking at the same God.
Symbolism in Hinduism
The recital and chant of mantras has been an essential element of vedic ritual throughout the centuries. According to Indian philosophy, the ultimate goal of human existence is moksha, liberation of the atman from the life-cycle, or spiritual enlightenment; and nadopasana (literally, the worship of sound) is taught as an important means for teaching this goal. The highest musical experience is ananda, the “divine bliss.” This devotional approach to music is a significant feature of Indian culture.
In ancient India, women occupied a very important position, in fact a superior position to, men. It is a culture whose only words for strength and power are feminine -"Shakti'' means "power'' and "strength.'' All male power comes from the feminine.
|Sound (nada) is believed to be the heart of the process of creation. In Hinduism, the sacred syllable Om embodies the essence of the universe - it is the "hum" of the atoms and the music of the spheres - and sound in general represents the primal energy that holds the material world together. Nada Brahma is a primal word in Indian spirituality, a primal word that also refers to India's great classical music. Since the most ancient times, music in India has been practiced as a spiritual science and art, a means to enlightenment. Sangita, which originally meant drama, music and dance, was closely associated with religion and philosophy. At first it was inextricably interwoven with the ritualistic and devotional side of religious life. |
Literary evidence suggests that kings and towns were destroyed because a single woman was wronged by the state. For example, Valmiki's Ramayana teaches us that Ravana and his entire clan was wiped out because he abducted Sita. Veda Vyasa's Mahabharatha teaches us that all the Kauravas were killed because they humiliated Draupadi in public. Elango Adigal's Sillapathigaram teaches us Madurai, the capital of the Pandyas was burnt because Pandyan Nedunchezhiyan mistakenly killed her husband on theft charges.
In Vedic times women and men were equal as far as education and religion was concerned. Women participated in the public sacrifices alongside men. One text mentions a female rishi Visvara. Some Vedic hymns, are attributed to women such as Apala, the daughter of Atri, Ghosa, the daughter of Kaksivant or Indrani, the wife of Indra. Apparently in early Vedic times women also received the sacred thread and could study the Vedas.

This are only some impressions from this recommendable website - much MUCH more you will find here:
My name is Ms. Sushama Londhe, and this site is my personal endeavor to provide appropriate collection of information about Hinduism, as well as to attain correct appraisal of India’s rich cultural heritage. Furthermore, it is to create awareness among Hindus and non-Hindus about the world's most ancient living tradition.

Highly recommend this informative and colorful site on the meaning of Hinduism.

Die “Paläo-SETI-These”, außerirdische Besucher hätten in die menschliche Vergangenheit eingegriffen, ist im deutschsprachigen Raum untrennbar mit dem Namen Erich von Däniken verbunden. Daß Däniken keineswegs der erste war, der Spekulationen über außerirdische Einflüsse auf die menschliche Geschichte veröffentlichte, ist seit längerem bekannt.
Seit mittlerweile 6 Jahren präsentiert das Magazin Mysteria 3000 Themen der PaläoSETI-Forschung und der alternativen und interdisziplinären Archäologie im deutschsprachigen Internet: Mysteria3000 (German)
Neu gibt es jetzt das Online-Lexikon
In Form eines Lexikons wollen wir Themen der PaläoSETI-Forschung kurz und prägnant vorstellen, um Internetnutzern einfache Recherchemöglichkeiten zur Verfügung zu stellen ... Da wir noch ganz am Anfang stehen, suchen wir Autoren, die uns bei den Lexikoneinträgen unterstützen wollen. Wer also Lust hast am Lexikon mitzuarbeiten, kann sich gerne bei uns melden.
|Mysterious People is devoted to the lives of mysterious, strange and unusual people. It consists of a series of biographical articles, with sources and further reading listed at the end of each piece. The sections are Strange Powers, Psychics & Mediums, Occult Personalities, Poltergeist Girls, Feral Children, Eccentrics & Impostors.|
In the main I have tried to write about those who were, experienced or did things, genuinely, sometimes startlingly, unexplainable or unique. I have also included a number of characters whose exploits are not as widely known as perhaps they should be. So you will find shadowy occultists rubbing shoulders with enigmatic imposters, poltergeist girls with feral children, psychics and mediums with eccentric travellers and mystical writers, the king of the gypsies with a princess from Javasu.

Maya - Place of Mirrors
Journey back to a time when gods spoke with men and one of the world's greatest civilizations flourished. This is Place of Mirrors – a place where people look at life, and their place in it, from a very different perspective. Yet, there is something of ourselves to be found in this place. Even as the tiniest atom is a reflection of the solar system, which is a reflection of the universe, so we are all mirror images of one another.
"Place of Mirrors" is an historical novel about the ancient Maya that is based on solid research. Much of the rationale for this story can be found throughout this Website.

Having traveled through various Buddhist cultures of the Himalayas since 1980, I have been impressed with the warmth, generosity and beauty generated in settings that would be deemed poor by casual observers. The lasting strength and commitment of Buddhist societies are exhibited in the devotion and artistry of time-honored skills used to create statutes, thangkas, rugs, singing bowls and other items of daily and ritual use. Now more than ever the political and economic situation in Nepal and Tibet demands attention. The commitment of this business to support the artisans who create traditional works will continue without interruption.

Are Wormholes Tunnels for Time Travel?
|Gott, the Princeton scientist, envisions the wormhole effect as being like that of a mirrored garden ball. When looking through the wormhole, however, one would not see a reflection of that same garden, but instead a garden on, say, Alpha Centauri, the star closest to our solar system. |
"You can jump through the wormhole and pop out on Alpha Centauri, and you've just gone through a very narrow tunnel that connects these two very distant places," Gott said. "The shortcut of the wormhole allows you to beat a light beam to Alpha Centauri."

Hello - I’m back
I reached the Alps: the soul within me burned,
Italia, my Italia, at thy name:
And when from out the mountain's heart I came
And saw the land for which my life had yearned,
I laughed as one who some great prize had earned:
And musing on the marvel of thy fame
I watched the day, till marked with wounds of flame
The turquoise sky to burnished gold was turned.
The pine-trees waved as waves a woman's hair,
And in the orchards every twining spray
Was breaking into flakes of blossoming foam:
But when I knew that far away at Rome
In evil bonds a second Peter lay,
I wept to see the land so very fair.
