If a Galactic appeared before you and you had but one question would that question be about the past or the future?
If an angel came to you and you had one question, would you ask about the light or about the dark?
If you as a teacher could teach one thing to a class, would you teach about doing right or about what has been done wrong?
When standing in front of an ancient Egyptian temple wall I ask myself, am I looking at the past or am I seeing the future?
How can one examine the past without thinking about our future?
How can one plan for the future without referencing the past?
The same for the light and the dark.
How can one look into the dark and see without light?
And how would one know the light without contrast from dark?
Who is it that determines what is right? What is wrong?
I realize that at some point there will be no separation but how can dualism cease to exist?
How will we as humans actually come to that point of convergence?
Is truth ever a single entity?
Isn’t this what everyone thinks about while running around the Middle East?
Egypt does not reveal its secrets easily.
It continues to challenge the greatest minds as the past is hidden in full sight buried in the simplicity and complexity of hieroglyphic images.
The depth of meaning remains obscured from the general public as information as knowledge is a controlled asset.
Only by approaching the walls with an understanding that each figure, each wall has a place in a bigger story can one start to fit together the immensity of what has occurred and how much more is yet to be revealed.
We will not know what we do not know until we discover what can be known.
What is to be known will be in direct relationship with what energy you approach the question with.
And as long as the knowledge about our past remains hidden how could we know our future?
As record keeper of our story, archaeological sites preserve the past in stone.
Hidden artifacts buried deep under sand and jungle foliage, deep in caves or under vast amounts of water eventually are discovered.
These discoveries should be shared openly with the general public but it gets complicated very quickly.
First and foremost is the financial aspect of the game.
Costs mount up quickly with the resources required for excavation, analysis and preservation.
Funding can be a sticky business.
It is a wonderful idea that countries help countries to save threatened sites.
Or when collaborations give the public access to these discoveries.
Examples of these being the Valley of the Whales at Wadi Al Hitan or the Temple of Isis at Philae.
It demonstrates recognition that these sites benefit all of humanity.
This remarkable action supports universal love in cooperation.
But so many Temples have demarcations and vandalism.
Faces have been rubbed out, chiseled marks and even bullet holes have spoiled this ancient worlds’ art and record keeping.
Even Pharaohs were active in trying to erase information about other pharaohs from the walls.
It was an effort to place themselves in hierarchy and have power over others.
Erase and control information and you gain the control and manipulation of the population.
Rewrite the words of our history so it can change the future.
Withhold information from the people and you can guide them by introducing canned thoughts and perceptions.
Rulers, kings, pharaohs contributed to countless eons of mind and thought control.
This is helpful in governing the masses.
This has come at the hands of many governments but ultimately by the influence of religions.
This is the main course served to humanity today.
There are so many religions and so many different ways of looking at things.
But is there really?
If a story is carved in stone, isn’t that story exactly what it says it is?
Or are we at the mercy of the interpreter?
Or more importantly who is paying the interpreter. Eventually it comes back to funding.
So who controls the purse?
Given the opportunity to view historical records first hand, we are given the opportunity to bypass the control mechanisms of the past.
By looking past the information we have been told and using our own eyes, can we see the contrast between the artifacts and the narrative?
Can we look at what is in plain sight and adjust our ideas of what we have been told ?
Or will we continue to follow the narrative even if something does not add up?
It’s hard to know what we are looking at sometimes and we often need interpretations.
It is in these moments that we can do more than just rote learning.
We can practice listening and we can allow our hearts to help guide us.
Anytime you hear or see something that gives you pause, give yourself permission to ask, Why?
Give yourself permission to examine something with fresh eyes and new ideas.
Listen for the plausibility of truth that arises in that changed the way of thinking.
Maybe it’s not your idea but a seed from a fellow traveler.
Maybe you don’t agree with anything you’re being told.
What happens when something still doesn’t make sense to you?
Could that mean there is a story out there that is your very own?
The way we approach discovery matters much less than the fact that you are opening your mind to the possibility that there could be a different way. Another interpretation.
Some things are known, this is science in action. But perspectives can vary.
This person did exist, this battle did happen but what was it really like?
Is that a light bulb at Dendera? Are those glyphs of airplanes at Abydos?
We may never really know.
Then again, maybe you could provide that idea that actually helps solve a mystery.
Do you live your life in awe and wonder?
Do you look at things with fresh eyes and ideas?
Do you give yourself permission to have creative and original thoughts?
Do you want to get out there and start asking, “why?”.
Where in your body do you feel this question comes from?
Is it your heart? Your mind? Your gut?
Is it programming?
Are you running programs?
Do you trust your instincts?
What do you trust?
Do you believe everything you have been told?
Curiosity did not kill the cat.
It gave the cat more lives.
Funny saying that.
Egypt has many, many cats.
Be curious my friends.
