Indigenous Knowledge and Ancient Spiritual Awareness

Indigenous Knowledge and Ancient Spiritual Awareness was and still is passed on from generation to generation in many cultures but lost in Euro and Americana conditioning. A new search is on and becoming mainstream though to find answers, new or old, yet many old ways and disciplined spiritual practices as well as disciplined ways of life cultivated the wisdom, peace and love of all life and of life's lessons that many search for today.

Native American Spirituality as well as Aboriginal Spirituality and many more of the earliest recorded people, saw all as one and all interconnected in life and with the earth and The Great Spirit.

buddha quote, meditation, spiritual knowledge
Meditation has been suggested by some authors as with the emergence of capacity for focused attention, which is an element of many methods of meditation, may have contributed to the final phases of human biological evolution. That was the stone age so now that we have advanced our mental and spiritual knowledge and abilities to the 21st century, what then would it take to bump us up another notch or two? Perhaps the same "magic pill"?

quotes by Marcus Aurelius, the Gladiator, roman emperor, philosopherMarcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus, author of "Meditations" (26 April 121 – 17 March 180) which is a culmination of his notes and philosophies going through many of the same questions and realizations that we search for today, though he was a Roman Emperor as portrayed in Gladiator. The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.
Marcus Aurelius 

meditation quote, hindu vedas, spirituality,

Within the Vedas and the Upanishads, original and second of the ancient Hindu writings was stated;
Beyond the spirit in man is the spirit of the universe, and beyond that is the spirit supreme. Nothing is beyond the spirit supreme. He is the end of the path, he is in everything, and he is beyond definition. When a mortal knows him, then he will find peace and be free from all sorrows.

i ching, tao, chinese spirituality, spiritual guidance

The ancient I Ching Scriptures which seem to predate all other writings, enlist the help of an unnamed source to answer any of your life's questions or for solutions or guidance.

So where do you look for peace and connection, or understanding and guidance? May I suggest to not look, but merely surrender to it? Accept that you do not have the answer and then accept that the answer will be given to you. Expect it but do not look for the answer, for it may come in another form.
