Chinese charater for myth

myth : dreamtime

Dreamtime is the time you get into when you go to sleep and have a dream.

Dreamtime talks about permanent conditions within your own psyche as they relate to the physical conditions of your life now, at this moment.

If you are concerned about overcoming an obstacle you may have a dream about failure.

Failure will be associated with many other failures in your life all piled up together there in your subconscious so the images may not relate to the current obstacle but rather refer to it.

The dream is an inexhaustible source of spiritual information.

Everyone has to pass over the threshold of personal self-limitation.

That is an archetypal thing, a basic mythological theme, even though this is a personal dream.

These two levels of dreaming which relate personal obstacles with general cultural social problems are found in every social culture.

To understand your dream all you have to do is remember.

Take one or two images or ideas and associate with them.

The dream is based on a body of experiences that have significance in your life that are welling up from your subconscious that you have not conscously resolved.

Soon the next dream will come along, and your interpretation will go further.

Ever since Interpretation of Dreams was published, there has been a recognition of the importance of dreams.

Dream interpretations have existed for millinium.

People of all cultures have succumbed to superstitious notions about dreams.

A dream, arising from the subconscious mind, is a personal experience of that deep, dark ground that is the support of our conscious lives.

The myth is a social cultural dream.

A myth is a cultural dream and a dream is a private myth.

If your private myth, your dream, is not in accord with the culture, you are in out of sync with your social culture.

You are in for an adventure in the deep dark forest ahead.

Visionaries have moved out of social cultural protection and into a reality broken down into it's basic elements, a reality of first hand original experience.

As original experiences have not been interpreted you have to work out reality for yourself.

Either you are forged in this fire of original interpretation of reality, seeing things anew or you become lost and must return to the previously known social cultural interpretation of reality.

Leave the culture's garden path and you find culturally difficult situations.

To embark on the Hero's Journey takes the courage to face cultural trials.

Dreams are wrapped up in imaginative speculation.

There are certain characteristics of dreams that are similar, no matter who is dreaming them.

There is another, deeper understanding of dream time - which is of a time that is outside of time which is simply just an enduring state of being.

The biggest estate on earth: how Aborigines made Australia

"Initiation is equivalent to introducing the novice to the mythical history of the tribe; in otherwords, the initiate learns the deeds of the beings outside time, who, in the dreamtime, established the present human condition and all the religious, social, and cultural institutions of the tribe.

All in all, to know this traditional lore means to know the adventures of the ancestors and the other foundational beings when they lived on earth.

In Australia these adventures amount to little more than long wanderings during which the beings of the dreamtime are believed to have performed a certain number of acts.

As we saw, the novices are obliged to retrace these mythical journeys during their initiation.

They thus relive the events of the dreamtime.

For the Australians these primordial events represent a sort of cosmogony - although, in general, the work of the dreamtime is one of completing and perfecting: the mythical ancestors do not create the world; but transform it, there by giving it its present form; they do not create man, they civilize him." - Mircea Eliade

The Dreaming is a sacred time outside living memory when ancestral heroes traveled across a formless land creating sacred sites and all the living things out of their own essence merging into the Mother of all things - the Earth.

All life is part of a vast and complex single network of relationships which can be traced directly back to the great spirit ancestors of the Dreaming.

In this Dreaming lies the sacredness of the Earth.

The life spirit of a human being is derived from connections with ancestors and the Earth.

Each human being is an incarnation in human form of the original ancestral spirit.

This eternal spirit existed before the life of the individual begins, and continues to exist when the life of the individual ends. Both before and after life, it is believed that an ancestral spirit exists in the Dreaming and is only initiated into life by being born through a mother. At death, the ancestral spirit returns to the Dreaming to commune with the other ancestral spirits.

Every individual in an essential way exists eternally in the Dreaming.

When the mother felt the child move in the womb for the first time, it was thought that this was the work of the ancestral spirit of the land in which the mother currently stood. Upon birth the child was considered to be a special custodian of that part of the land and was taught the stories and songlines of that place. Songlines travel across Australia, through as many as six to ten different language groupings. The songs and dances of a particular songline are kept alive and frequently performed at large gatherings.

The expression 'Dreamtime' is often used to refer to the 'time before time', 'time outside of time' or 'the time of the creation of all things', as though it were the past.

But Dreaming in a real sense is also of the present and of the future.

Aboriginal people call Dreaming the all-at-once time because they experience it as the past, present, and future existing at the same time.

The everywhen of the Dreaming is considered to be objective, while linear time is considered a subjective creation of the wakeful consciousness of one's own lifetime.

The Dreaming is often used to refer to spirituality.

The Dreaming stories are stories about creation of sacred places, landforms, people, animals and plants, law and tradition.

The Dreaming includes a complex network of knowledge, faith and practices derived from stories of creation which dominates all spiritual and physical aspects of Aboriginal life.

The Dreaming sets the structures of society, the rules for social behavior and the ceremonies performed in order to maintain the life of the land.

The condition that is Dreamtime is met when the tribal members live according to tribal rules and traditions, and initiate through rituals and songlines a state of mind relating their subjective consciousness directly to the objective Dreaming of the Dreamtime.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
