Kasjerka zwróciła uwagę starszemu mężczyźnie, że jego pokolenie nie myślało o środowisku. Jego odpowiedź jest genialna! - "Każdy kto ma około 50 lat powinien to przeczytać, może młode pokolenie również." Tak zaczyna się wpis na Facebooku opublikowany przez Szweda Andersa Sahlina w 2013 roku. Jego treść jest wciąż aktualna (może nawet z każdym rokiem coraz bardziej). Dlatego chcieliśmy, żebyście przeczytali to co już ponad 60000 osób udostępniło.

Płaciłem ostatnio za zakupy w sklepie spożywczym i młoda kasjerka zasugerowała, że powinien mieć własną torbę za zakupy ponieważ plastikowe jednorazówki nie są dobre dla środowiska. Oczywiście miała rację w jednym przypadku. Ale co za to mieliśmy w naszych czasach? Mieliśmy butelki na mleko, które oddawaliśmy do sklepu. Wdrapywaliśmy się po schodach ponieważ nie było wind we wszystkich sklepach, szkołach i biurowcach. Jeśli podobał Ci się ten artykuł , podziel się nim! W naszych domach był jeden telewizor i jedno radio.

The Michael Teachings Back in 1979, novelist Chelsea Quinn Yarbro presented a whole new framework for understanding personality and spirituality. This framework wasn’t hers, but had been “dictated” to a group of friends in San Fransisco through a Ouija board. The source of the information referred to itself simply as “Michael”. Rather like the ultimate computer in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Michael would readily answer any question about life, the universe and everything. Thousands of messages came through, giving clear, dispassionate, almost clinical, answers to every question asked. The Ouija board is now long gone but the questions and answers have never stopped. Messages from Michael tells the story of the origins of the Michael teachings. So where to begin? Let’s start with… Who – or what – is Michael? At the end of this learning process, when all there is to experience as a separate being has been experienced, the soul unites with others in its wider group to form an integrated “entity”. Essence

A Timeline of World Civilizations for Mythology Mythology seeks to explain the world and thus reflects the culture, events, and history of the societies that create the stories handed down as myths. Egypt’s Nile River and its cycle of overflowing its banks leaving fertile ground as it receded became the basis for Egyptian religion that demanded that the people help the gods prevent anything from interfering with the cycle. Myths form around the founding of cities, including Athens and Rome — about 10,000 to 2,500 years ago, respectively — and the founding of civilizations, including the creation myths passed down in virtually every culture. Chinese and Native American myths account for astrological occurrences as well as for more earth-bound events such as the Toltec invasion of the Mexican city of Teotihuacan in 900 CE. Famous poems, such as Beowulf and the Saga of the Volsungs are combinations of history and legend. And don’t assume that all the myths are hundreds, if not thousands, of years old.

There were originally only a handful, but there were thousands by the time they were disbanded in the 1300's. They were the first bankers. A person could deposit money at one Templar institution, receive a voucher, and turn it in at any other Templar institution. Eventually they became so wealthy, and so many royals owed them so much money, that they became a target. Interestingly, at the time the Templars were disbanded, the Swiss people (right across the border from France, of course) were mainly farmers with little or no military training.
