The Hustler's MBA I've been saying that college is obsolete for a very long time. I dropped out in 2000, because even back then I could see that it was a really poor value proposition.

School is outrageously expensive, leaving graduates with a debt (or net expenditure) of tens of thousands of dollars-- sometimes even one or two hundred thousand. There are some things that are worth that amount of money, but for many people school isn't one of them. In fact, apart from very specific cases, I think that school is a bad thing, not worth doing even if it was free. That's not to say that school has no benefits whatsoever. Let's say that when you turn eighteen, it's a good idea to take four years to develop yourself. 1. Poker will cost you money at first.

Shaman Links - Information on Shamanism, Links to Shamanic Teachers and Shaman Healers By State The Public Domain Review | Daniele Bolelli - Home documentary A documentary about the root causes of the systemic value disorders and detrimental symptoms caused by our current established system. The film details the need to outgrow the dated and inefficient methods of politics, law, business, or any other "establishment" notions of human affairs, and use the methods of science, combined with high technology, to provide for the needs of all the world's people. “If we are genuinely concerned about the environment and the fellow human beings, and want to end territorial disputes, war, crime, poverty, hunger, and the other problems that confront us today, the intelligent use of science and technology are the tools with which to achieve a new direction; one that will serve all people, and not just a select few.” — Jacque Fresco Paradise or Oblivion, by...

Different cultures may express their views on the two realities in differently, but the basic idea is the same. Shamans are explorers of doorways from ordinary reality into non-ordinary (NOR) reality through portals leading him from the physical to the spirit world. They are moving between those two worlds.

50+Ways - home Sound, Synchronicities & Shamanism "He made the whole world an instrument of sound, and an instrument for carrying messages, resounding praise to the Creator of all. - Frank Waters - The Book of the Hopi Sound There is something called the Sacred Sound Current which correlates to the spiritual Hindu "OM" and the Sufi "HU", and the Sant Mat "Shabd". This Music of the Spheres, Logos or Word as called in mystical teachings, goes beyond our limited spoken language. Such ethereal music is referred to also as the Sound of God or the Breath of God since the sound permeates all things. And as we know, all things are composed of energy.

Light and Sound is also viewed as synonymous with each other in the ancient scriptures. Synchronicity Shamanism Related Articles :

After the book Black Elk Speaks was published, people thought they could become instant medicine men and women. Little do they know that Black Elk did not tell the whole truth to the book's writer.

Selling the Sacred: Get Your Master's in Native American Shamanism? - Indian Country Media Network New Age spirituality has been building momentum for more than a century, according to scholars—who don’t like it any more than Native people do. Author Harold Bloom called New Age practices “the American religion” that “has been emptying our politics and our private lives of meaning.” A reviewer of another author, Catherine Tumber, said New Agers are “fungus-like, out of our uncontrolled capitalism.” There is one thing the critics missed though, and that is what New Agers are doing in Indian country. A case in point is the Divine Blessings Academy, which objectifies and quantifies spirituality as a product for sale.
