Colonialism: The English Hoarde
Anastasia refers to "the Technocracy" frequently in the Ringing Cedars books. 'Technocracy' takes us away from our Pristine Origins. The Technocracy is 'the machine' of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" album and of Fritz Lang's movie "Metropolis" (1927).
OUR UNEXAMINED THOUGHT
Challenge now your personal unchallenged beliefs and paradigms around these topics of: Industrialisation, Urbanisation and Globalisation.
Think about what these REALLY ARE:
When did they start?
For what purpose?
For whose benefit?
At whose or what's expense?
We need to think about these things, as Anastasia says. Many times in the books, Anastasia implores Vladimir to just "think about it". It is his/our God-given connection to those things anchored in us of our Pristine Origins that will show us The Truth. Jesus says much the same thing: "Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you." We tend to be so lazy and not look in depth at these things because our lives are so 'fine'... and there seems no point to challenge anything when life is 'just fine' as it is.
My challenge to you now is to join with me in a dialogue that maps these origins of 'Industrialisation, Urbanisation and Globalisation' and re-orients for us our place in the world as we stand. By clearly recognising where we stand currently, my hope is that we can find a compass-bearing for ourselves as individuals and as Conscious Co-creators that will ultimately lead to the shattering of our fetters tying us to this Technocratic World where arrogance, greed and selfishness dominate.
COLONIALISM: THE ENGLISH HOARD
This was a thought I woke up with this morning and knew that I needed to make a Group so I could add this discussion. I've not thought so clearly about English Colonialism before... probably because I am from 'noble' English stock. And then it strongly occurred to me how England owns America !! Does this seem illogical ?? Let's go back a bit:
In the early 17th Century, there were 5 great ocean-going nations:
England, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, France
As well, I thought about how English (the language) dominates the world today and also as a bit of a side-track, how the 'son of Donald' has forever changed the way that 'food' is mass-delivered to an un-conscious consumer. Well, McDonald is a son of Scotland, but Scotland is a part of the "United Kingdom of Britain, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland" ... so yes, I make an assumption here that the 'son of Donald' has at least a 'smidge' of the ravenous English blood pumping through his veins.
So what is it that makes us so "English", 'stiff upper lip' and all?
My first response is "deception". I think it's the ability to hold up a mask to one's face and tell a lie, without flinching. I think this is what confused the native peoples most of all from what I have seen and read. I'm sure we all know the American First Nations addage: "He speaks with 'forked tongue' " that we grew up with from old American 'westerns'. Also, in the movie "Mangal Pandey" about the Indian uprising in the British colony of 1857, there was a frustration brewing under the surface.
There are so many examples I can think of where what was being said by the Colonial Brits was not in alignment with what was being done... here in NZ as well, of course, with our own pre-European culture, the Maori. I want to explore this idea a lot more... about The English Hoard. How did they become so 'unconscious' ?? Was it because of the Roman blood that was mixed with the Celts during the occupation of Rome in Britain (c.30BC - 500AD)? Or maybe the Egyptian mix brought through from the Roman occupation of Alexandria, Cairo and Thebes prior to Rome occupying Britannia? ...or is it something else? To my mind, it seems very strange that the whole Aristocratic line of the British Monarchy and Aristocracy should hold this same peculiar trait of 'not seeing clearly' the plight of the common people. I guess that's why the world fell in love with Dianna, because she saw us.
Something seemed to grow in the English heart that was insidious. Maybe that's true for other Colonising nations at the time too, and i'd love for Caroline (ND) to add her knowledge of Dutch maritime history to this conversation as well. I'm looking for a 'cause', a reason, and a 'thread' of how the English got to be like this... domination, lies, incongruous behaviour. Even the art of the period romanticises this deception ~ of how the new settlers were such a great help to the 'noble savages'. Horrible really. Ido wonder if the painting here was a 'commissioned' work ie: propaganda.
It's the first time i've consciously approached this subject about my own blood-line so strongly in this way. Please help me figure it out. I'd love for you to join me in this conversation with the knowledge you have. Thanks all ~ Bronny
When will we break free?
So much is happening in the world at the moment and in our own little country. We are together all part of a great unfolding cloth. We are all individual components that have been woven in together over many centuries.
The political story of the world is an old one... the political story of our own nation, less so... but we still dance to the beat of the drum of those who hold the 'old story'.
When will we break free from the colonisers, the story of the Technocracy ?? When will we mark a point in history where we make ourselves a Sovereign State, beholden and liable to no-one. This is not the case at this current time. We are still in the thumbscrews of Britain, Germany, France, the Vatican, Spain, and The United States Corporation ~ all who are keepers of the 'old story'. They have tied us up in their webs of deceit and fraud, their fine words and their well-practised smiles. They 'speak with forked tongue'.
These sea-faring nations made themselves Commanders of the World. They ran the 'race of time' for supremacy, against each other, in Maritime 'battles' for dominance of any piece of Earth that had the 'Noble Savage' living in that place, as its only defender. All that these Commanders were capable of was to steal, pillage, maim, rape, brutalise and lie to those they had subjugated. The agenda was "to dominate".
The character and works of those whose suit is now of a different cut, hold firm to the same agenda. There is no heart within a single one of them.

There would come a time when the Earth would be ravaged of its resources, the sea blackened, the streams poisoned, and the deer dropping dead in their tracks. Just before it was too late, the Indian would regain his spirit and teach the white man reverence for the Earth, banding together with him to become Warriors of the Rainbow.
There was an old lady, from the Cree tribe, named "Eyes of Fire", who prophesied that one day, because of the white mans' or Yo-ne-gis' greed, there would come a time, when the fish would die in the streams, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, and the trees would no longer be, mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist. There would come a time when the "keepers of the legend, stories, culture rituals, and myths, and all the Ancient Tribal Customs" would be needed to restore us to health. They would be mankind's' key to survival, they were the "Warriors of the Rainbow". There would come a day of awakening when all the peoples of all the tribes would form a New World of Justice, Peace, Freedom and recognition of the Great Spirit. The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would spread these messages and teach all peoples of the Earth or "Elohi". They would teach them how to live the "Way of the Great Spirit". They would tell them of how the world today has turned away from the Great Spirit and that is why our Earth is "Sick". The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would show the peoples that this "Ancient Being" (the Great Spirit), is full of love and understanding, and teach them how to make the Earth (Elohi) beautiful again. These Warriors would give the people principles or rules to follow to make their path right with the world.
These principles would be those of the Ancient Tribes. The Warriors of the Rainbow would teach the people of the ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding. They would teach of Harmony among people in all four comers of the Earth. Like the Ancient Tribes, they would teach the peoples how to pray to the Great Spirit with love that flows like the beautiful mountain stream, and flows along the path to the ocean of life. Once again, they would be able to feel joy in solitude and in councils. They would be free of petty jealousies and love all mankind as their brothers, regardless of color, race or religion. They would feel happiness enter their hearts, and become as one with the entire human race. Their hearts would be pure and radiate warmth, understanding and respect for all mankind, Nature, and the Great Spirit. They would once again fill their minds, hearts, souls, and deeds with the purest of thoughts. They would seek the beauty of the Master of Life - the Great Spirit! They would find strength and beauty in prayer and the solitudes of life. Their children would once again be able to run free and enjoy the treasures of Nature and Mother Earth. Free from the fears of toxins and destruction, wrought by the Yo-ne-gi and his practices of greed.
The rivers would again run clear, the forests be abundant and beautiful, the animals and birds would be replenished. The powers of the plants and animals would again be respected and conservation of all that is beautiful would become a way of life. The poor, sick and needy would be cared for by their brothers and sisters of the Earth. These practices would again become a part of their daily lives. The leaders of the people would be chosen in the old way - not by their political party, or who could speak the loudest, boast the most, or by name calling or mudslinging, but by those whose actions spoke the loudest. Those who demonstrated their love, wisdom, and courage and those who showed that they could and did work for the good of all would be chosen as the leaders or Chiefs. They would be chosen by their "quality" and not the amount of money they had obtained. Like the thoughtful and devoted "Ancient Chiefs", they would understand the people with love, and see that their young were educated with the love and wisdom of their surroundings. They would show them that miracles can be accomplished to heal this world of its ills, and restore it to health and natural beauty
The tasks of these "Warriors of the Rainbow" are many and great. There will be terrifying mountains of ignorance to conquer and they shall find prejudice and hatred. They must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, and strong of heart. They will find willing hearts and minds that will follow them on this road of returning "Mother Earth" to beauty and plenty - once more. The day will come, it is not far away. The day that we shall see how we owe our very existence to the people of all tribes that have maintained their culture and heritage. Those that have kept the rituals, stories, legends, and myths alive; It will be with this knowledge, the knowledge that they have preserved, that we shall once again return to "harmony" with Nature, Mother Earth, and mankind. It will be with this knowledge that we shall find our "Key to our Survival". This is the story of the "Warriors of the Rainbow" and this is my reason for protecting the culture, heritage, and knowledge of my ancestors.
I know that the day "Eyes of Fire" spoke of - will come! I want my children and grandchildren to be prepared to accept this task. The task of being one of the........ "Warriors of the Rainbow."
