Well simply that the best teachings and philosophies and thinkers seem to be from way back in ancient times and all we do is pick them up again dust them off and give them new cover and put them out again. After awhile of these thought of mine the phrase there is nothing new under the sun appears to be very real!
Everything we read in books or great revelations that we get bombed with at seminars if you dig a bit you'll uncover that it had been written or taught many many centuries ago. All this makes me lead to believe then that the world were full of super beings and over the years this knowledge and power had been forgotten. Maybe that explains the pyramids and Stone Henge and many more things we can't seem to explain.
But of course everything happens for a reason and if we are now rediscovering these lost treasures of wisdom and ways to use our mind coupled with even deeper knowledge of how the mind actually works then truly the time of the super-being is going to be here again.
An ex-girlfriend of mine had an interesting idea regarding the supposed end of the world that was to occur at the end of the Mayan calendar a few years ago. She believed that rather than the end of the physical world that we know was going to occur but the end of our present way of thinking, that the mindful consciousness was to be the new world in which we live. I think that this can not be disregarded. The end of dumb humans and it also made me want to let the brakes off on my own thinking and gallop towards this new world. A much more positive slant and way of seeing the future I think.
