I just got home after watching Indian Jones, the last one where Harrison Ford acts as an older “Indie”. He does an excellent job as an actor, and as only Harrison Ford can; especially when he acts as Indiana Jones.
But what I came away with was an interesting curiosity in my mind. Could there really be an “El Dorado”? Or could there have been an El Dorado, at some time? And could that City of Gold have been created by Extraterrestrials? I have often wondered about the civilizations of the Mayans and the Incas. How did they create such extravagant cities and how did they reach a level of peaceful existence that we can only imagine today. Yes, they were wiped out by the Spaniards; however, they may have reached a higher level of consciousness, and were attempting to peacefully make friends with the Spaniards and to learn about them.
Unfortunately, the Spaniards did not realize who or what they had discovered. They were only trying to explore and conquer. They mistook the gentleness of the Mayans and the Incas for stupidity, and were convinced that they could be controlled. In the end, the Spaniards contributed to the decline of the Mayans. They brought with them diseases that the Mayans were never exposed to; the Spaniards also imposed Catholicism on the Mayans, and instituted a political organization into the society. The Mayans dwindled in number and were driven to farmland that was unused by the Spaniards.
The same could be said of the other ancient civilizations that have mysteriously dissolved, such as the the Egyptians, and the cities of Harappa, Mohenjo-daro and Lothal, all in southeast Asia.
Could we just be in a world where we relearn everything over and over again. Now for instance, our civilization wants to be more peaceful and it wants to reach a higher level of consciousness. People like Eckhardt Tolle who wrote “Power of Now” and “A New Earth” and others, like James Redfield, who wrote the “Celestine Prophecy”, are people who have caught a glimpse of attaining another level of consciousness. Other courses all across the globe are grabbing the attention of people, including “The Art of Living”, which are courses that help you to learn how to live a more fulfilled life and a happier life, just by tapping into your subconscious self.
Could the Mayans have already achieved this? And when some of us peace loving people do achieve this level that we so desire, will “our Spaniards” destroy us and destroy themselves? And then we will begin the cycle all over again….
