Learning from the Past

Written by Mathew Naismith

While in discussion with another person about my last post mythology, biblical prophecies & the antediluvian period came into the discussion mainly because it relates to the way a lot of spiritually aware people are feeling today.  How would past human history reflect on the way we feel? In timelessness there is no past or future obviously so everything that seemed to be in the past is still very much of the now, also the past in time didn’t occur by accident I believe, it was for us to learn from.  Let me put it this way, do most of us learn from our mistakes in our lives? Human history is no different from living a normal human life accept in time it’s much longer however if we think beyond time we see the whole of human history likened to one human life lived, now look at human history again.

Yes of course if we look at human history as a lesson to be learnt, just like we do in everyday life, we can see it occurred to give us guidance in time however what has happened is our egos have taken the past as just being of the past & is seen to be antiquated even though a lot of the technology in the past has been shown to be quite advanced. The ego doesn’t want to know that in certain points in the Earth’s history we were more advanced than we are now in a lot of ways especially in awareness, this brings us to the antediluvian period of time in Earth’s history.

The following link has a problem with the home page but in my mind is still worth a read.

Most people don’t know or don’t want to know about the antediluvian period of time in Earth’s history mainly because of the ego is telling us how could there be anything else than what our belief system is telling us, there can’t be anything more grandeur than what my belief system is all about surly.  This brings us back to the antediluvian period of time before the great flood, did there ego cause their demise? I’m going to theorise it did mainly because we are doing the same thing today.

I believe in the antediluvian period of time they acquired knowing we are still on the brink of knowing & most importantly understanding so how did they cause their own demise? To answer this we should ask another question, if we look at our own period of time what is going to cause our demise bar a natural disaster?  It all comes down to the controlling factors of the ego & always has right throughout human history. How many different cultured people have been wiped off the face of the Earth in human history because of ego? We couldn’t have wars if we didn’t allow the ego to take control of us, that would be an impossibility.

In the antediluvian period they were quite advanced mainly because of their awareness beyond knowledge, knowledge didn’t hinder their advancements because of their awareness beyond their current knowledge at any given time. And no I don’t believe knowledge & awareness are the exact same thing as knowledge is more controlling than awareness as explained in past posts of mine, knowledge denotes control & control of any kind can hinder one’s awareness beyond our knowing. However this didn’t seem to occur in the antediluvian period mainly because of influences from other sources to begin with.  What I think happened is they were so aware of advanced technology they became unaware of the self especially of the ego self & how it can be quite controlling & noticeably destructive. The ego self is quite constructive until it becomes controlling. I believe the ego self, through it’s constructiveness, was why the people of the antediluvian period became so aware & knowledgeable however the knowing of so much high tech knowledge overwhelmed their egos turning their ego self’s into controlling egos. If you look through the known & accepted part of human history this kind of occurrence is quite prevalent, the Roman Empire is a good example.  

I think this is why we are so aware of the controlling factors of the ego today especially in relation to spiritual awareness so we don’t make the same mistakes of the past however just because the controlling ego is noticeably destructive doesn’t men the ego self is. Demonising the ego all together isn’t the way to go I believe, understand the controlling factor of the ego is. Any extreme action is only going to bring more extreme living conditions like the controlling ego has done however complete awareness can only bring us balance. Will we learn from our past? That is a question yet to be answered in time but is already known out of time!!
