In last week’s post , we began exploring the build of an earth oven. An Earth Oven is a simple structure, made of clay, sand, straw, stone, and fire brick, that you can use to cook foods in a traditional way. Last week’s post walked you through the first set of steps for building your…Building an Earth Oven, Part II: Insulation, Finish Plaster, and Cob Mosaic — The Druids Garden

When Atlantis and Lemuria sank the survivors scattered around the world. The Mayans say sixty million people died in Lemuria during the cataclysm that sank Atlantis and Lemuria. I can’t find a record of how many died in Atlantis. There were survivors. If there wasn’t survivors we would not be here today. Let’s look at just who the survivors were.

An earth oven is an oven made of cob (a mixture of clay, sand, and straw) with insulating features (firebricks, bottles). It is an extremely efficient and sustainable method of doing any baking you might need to do. One firing of your earth oven can allow you to bake different things for hours (pizzas, bread,…Building an Earth Oven Part I: Foundation, Dome, and Structure — The Druids Garden
A druid walks upon a landscape, barren, cold, with trees cut and plants uprooted. Tears in her eyes, she surveys the damage that others have caused: the homes of so many animals disrupted after logging, the wild ramps and ginseng roots damaged, and the remains of the logged trees laying like skeletons on the earth.…A 21st Century Wheel of the Year: Regeneration at Beltane — The Druids Garden
The Vulcan salute was a hand gesture made by the character Spock in Star Trek. It is a hand gesture where you put the pinky and ring finger together while holding the index and middle finger together making a V with the hand. Spock would say “Live long and prosper” while making the symbol. What is this symbol? Where does it come from? You are about to find out.

As the light grows dim this time of year, as the days grow short, many people find this particular season a difficult one. Without the light, our thoughts can spiral into the darkness, our spirits long for the warmer days. The cold and dark are barely here, and there is so much winter ahead. Just this week, I had three separate conversations with friends about this exact issue: it is a hard time of year, particularly the time between Samhain and Yule, when we know there is much more darkness to come. It is a hard time this year, in particular, when so many of us are beyond stressed and burned out due to the unfolding events of the last two years. It also was a strange year, in that we had temperatures that stayed well above freezing, which kept the leaves green–and suddenly temperatures that plunged…

What is history? It is said to be the records of things that happened. Problem is that history is not as accurate as we would like it to be. We didn’t have an adequate way of keeping records in ancient history. So the first problem we have with history is the material it was written down on. The second problem is the people who recorded history. All ancient history was recorded from either religion or royalty. In these records they always keep themselves in a good light. When a dynasty fell or was over thrown those records were destroyed. When new religions were started the records of the old religions were destroyed. When history is written by privileged or prejudice groups it is never accurate. All of our history is from biased accounts.

The Americas have been inhabited for a very long time. The people of the Americas have been here just as long if not longer than the people of the east. The Native Americans traded with others around the world. There have been many artifacts found in the Americas that are considered Asian, Egyptian and Viking. The Bering Straight is one big lie. The ancients were very good seafarers.

Our ego mind is what limits us. We are our own worst enemies. We can’t be wrong. We have to have others think like us. The ego will get itself into trouble constantly. Science is not immune to the ego. In fact science is being run by one of the biggest ego trips ever in history. Until we get science and the human race out of the ego, we will not advance.
