Lost Civilizations: Atlantis: Timaeus and Critias

Lost Civilizations: Atlantis: Timaeus and Critias
[ Introduction || The Dialogues || Cast of Characters ] Timaeus and Critias, two of Plato's dialogues, are the only existing written records which specifically refer to Atlantis. The dialogues are conversations between Socrates, Hermocrates, Timeaus, and Critias. Apparently in response to a prior talk by Socrates about ideal societies, Timeaus and Critias agree to entertain Socrates with a tale that is "not a fiction but a true story." The story is about the conflict between the ancient Athenians and the Atlantians 9000 years before Plato's time. The dialogues that follow were written by Plato some time around 360 BC and are English translations by Benjamin Jowett: Note: The pages and paragraphs of the dialogues are a convenience created by myself. Serves only as a brief introduction to Atlantis, a preface.

The Atlantis Heritage – Jeshua – channeled by Pamela Kribbe @ Aurelia | Pauline Battell – Star Seed – Lightarian (TM) Rays Master-Practitioner – Reiki Kundalini Master-teacher – Spiritual Channeller – Lightworker ART : Martin Bridge ____________ The Atlantis Heritage Jeshua channeled by Pamela Kribbe Dear friends, I AM Jeshua. I would like to be of support to you in these challenging times. This time of transition on Earth brings many old things to the surface. I would like to speak of these old times today, to bring you to a deeper understanding of yourselves, of who you are here-and-now. Please let me take you back to the beginning. I am taking you to the time of your birth as an individual soul, as a separate ‘I’. In being vulnerable and prone to illusion, you gather an enormous amount of experience, which enables you to really understand what oneness means, what love means at the level of experience. I ask you to go back to the time that this ‘being an I’ took shape for the first time. I now take a big leap in time, as I can only give a broad outline of this extensive history. Now imagine that you were contributing to the development of life on Earth. Atlantis – the second Fall into Experience

Atlantis - The Lost Continent Finally Found Adept-School of the Past Lecture by Dr. RUDOLF STEINER, delivered on the 7th of March, 1907. From stenographic notes unrevised by the lecturer. The spiritual-scientific movement has arisen in our time not because of the arbitrary act of this or of that individual, of this or of that society, but because it is connected with the whole evolution of humanity and, as such, it should be considered as one of the most important of cultural impulses. If we would penetrate into the mission of the spiritual-scientific movement, we must transfer ourselves into the past and future of mankind. Just as the individual human beings have evolved, from the moment when they first descended as individual souls from the bosom of the Godhead, so mankind as a whole has also evolved. We should first explain that what we are accustomed to name “mankind” is only the product of the so-called fifth root-race. Simple folks of to-day still possess a fine feeling for the inner, spiritual and occult power of words.

Sodom and Gomorrah Updated -- 15 February 2005 (and 6 June 2005) The absolute destruction and total obliteration of two cities to the point where there is minimal evidence that they ever existed, is a singular point in the story of Genesis. Much is made of the alleged decadence of these two cities (but in comparison to New York or Los Angeles... who knows?). It is, unless one is attempting to justify the wholesale destruction of two or more cities, complete with their complement of human inhabitants (accept for Lot and his daughters who managed to escape the alleged wrath of God). In the context of history, however, Sodom and Gomorrah, were not wholly different from Minneapolis and St. The only difficulty, apparently, for Sodom and Gomorrah was that both cities chose the wrong side in a much wider conflict. Basically, Sodom and Gomorrah were bombed into oblivion with the use of nuclear or atomic weaponry. In the written records from the time, meanwhile, there is simply no question. Forward to:

The Celebration of Soul-Filled love and the adoration of the Beloved….. | Judith Kusel Love at its very core loves to be celebrated, for it extends exuberant joy, that rapture, the bliss and the infinite euphoria of the coming together of the masculine and feminine God and Goddess within and without. There is a certain type of adoration of the Divine within each other, which is there in the eyes of the Beloved. It is the depth of the Mystery of Love itself, reflected in the eyes of the other, in that the depth of soul is revealed. Two souls who have know each other from the very beginning within the conception of the Goddess and then birthed as one. We are heading into a totally new paradigm shift, which is already making itself felt and it is here truly that souls will come together who are destined to be together and more important work together: “Love is not so much gazing at each other, but looking outward into the same direction.” The adoration of the Beloved can take many forms and many expressions. In Atlantis the soul was taken out of the woman. Soul meets souls.

Shinar Shinar (/ˈʃaɪ.nɑr/;[1] Hebrew שִׁנְעָר Šinʻar, Septuagint Σεννααρ Sennaar) is a biblical geographical locale of uncertain boundaries in Mesopotamia. The name may be a corruption of Hebrew Shene neharot ("two rivers"), Hebrew Shene arim ("two cities"),[2] or Akkadian Sumeru. Hebrew Bible[edit] In Genesis 14:1,9, King Amraphel rules Shinar. Shinar is further mentioned in Joshua 7:21; Isaiah 11:11; Daniel 1:2; and Zechariah 5:11, as a general synonym for Babylonia. Jubilees[edit] Jubilees 9:3 allots Shinar (or, in the Ethiopic text, Sadna Sena`or) to Ashur, son of Shem. Other possible attestations[edit] References[edit]

The Fall of Atlantis and their use of Crystals Greetings Masters, I am Archangel Metatron, Lord of Light! I greet you all in a vector of unconditional love! The Fall of Atlantis & The Master Temple Crystals of the Sacred "ARK" Atlantis is indeed the missing link of Pangaea, located in mid Atlantic. Dear Ones, these crystals were saved from destruction, and now you are offered the memory of why. You see, Atlantis existed for over 200,000 years. The Golden Age of Atlantis We tell you in fact that the Golden Period of Atlantis was the highest level of Light Consciousness ever achieved on the Earth Plane in any advanced civilization; higher than Lemuria, higher than Mu, higher than Rama, higher than Ignacious. So when you consider Atlantis, DO NOT only remember it's sad demise!

Ziggurat of Ur Its remains were excavated in the 1920s and 1930s by Sir Leonard Woolley. Under Saddam Hussein in the 1980s, they were encased by a partial reconstruction of the façade and the monumental staircase. The ziggurat of Ur is the best-preserved of those known from Iran and Iraq, besides the ziggurat of Dur Untash (Chogha Zanbil).[3] It is one of three well preserved structures of the Neo-Sumerian city of Ur, along with the Royal Mausolea and the Palace of Ur-Nammu (the E-hursag).
