The timing, the synchronicity … The “I” can only gawk in astonishment whenever witnessing it.

"It usually is not predictable and many people can share in some needed lessons."
Yep. And also on different ‘levels’ simultaneously.

"I never assume anybody has control over spirit".
Yet anybody or everybody can tune into it. Indigenous do not own it, yet Real Elders do move in synch with it and people imagine it to be the Elder’s power, but that is just mistaking the pointing finger for the moon itself.

"Maybe a healer needs some humble pie and a new ager gets to find their gift."
Maybe. “I” better not assume as I am familiar with humble pie.

"The most unexpected things can blow your mind in some of the weirdest ways".
Sure can.

Nope, no Real Power belongs to "I".. They (Spirit) just let us wonder around like we have some control and a few things figured out about Power...LOL..

Yeah, I get me a piece of humble pie usually after I've spread out the ingredients for the 'ole' knuckle sandwich...LOL...


I often wonder exactly how much signal and sign I actually miss from Spirit.
I am assuming a whole bunch.

Besides; -


Like I stated before, I started writing stories in poetry form out of my innerbeing and started rhyming.
Love me some Horses. Always making weapons.
Megaliths and agriculture? I am more of an opportunist, worker of metals and a traveler who Loves being on the Ocean...Pirate maybe....
Plus I love the Mushrooms and the Springs and the wee peoples and I am a joker and was a large consumer of the liquid spirits but abused me privileges.



Oh wait, Megaliths and agriculture, yes I see it.
I go to the Seasonal solstice Stone Circle gathering to check out the farmers daughters...LOL..


I did have a leprechaun best friend that brought me luck or at least made me feel lucky to have met him but he died about 5 yrs. back may he R.I.P.!
He was in that vid. I PM'd you , he was in the tie dye shirt.(@10:40mins. to 10:44 mins.)

A (Near-Eastern origin) European descent agriculturalist with an agriculturalist worldview and mentality … (going back to that earlier video) ….
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOvCFDA1Gn8

No doubt here, a well-intended soul, thinking from the heart and all that @ 1:04 thinks it an amazing idea to try and create change for the ab-original peoples by planting non-native fruit trees, so that the “ab-original people will be able to have their own food, to have access to their own food, because food is like a base note to culture”.

^ That to me sounds like somebody who is absolutely clueless about the original land use & culture and the abundance of the seasonal bushfoods that were there, which kept people well fed:
https://img.delicious.com.au/vK6EDsb...h-148716-1.jpg

Although this is assuming the volunteers knew what type of trees they were planting, but perhaps they did not know and believed to be planting native fruit trees?
And perhaps the "B.Bay Movement" had asked the local tribe as to what kind of trees they wanted to be planted (?)

Planting non-native fruit-tree orchards is a good idea also, communities do have them for their own and commercial income reasons, now that people have had to become sedentary.

But still. People in general do live in their own conditioned cultural prism bubbles … we all do - often not realizing it and knowing of no other ways.

These very early dates prove that the practice of constructing megalithic monuments in Ireland began on the west coast.

I'm thinking you have expertise in this area...Very Cool.
Environmental remediation with your eye on culture seems an interest for you.

Me too!
But as you see from the maps, we up North East did not have that Megalithic Culture thing happening - fascinating as it is.
Somebody else has to convey it to me ...

I am very proud of my 88.++ % hunter-gatherer genes, hence I should have a hunch, a feeling or know something about it.
No expertise, but the trees were my concern in that earlier video.
It takes more than just - plant a tree - have a party to celebrate and get wasted.

A good environmental group has its indigenous and non-indigenous experts & will educate ‘Feral’ volunteers also about which tree, scrub or plant suits to which zone and to which desired outcome.

They look like they know what they are doing:
https://www.rainforestrangers.org/bigscrubrainforest

The few environmental groups I have been involved in have all been about fighting for indigenous rights also.

Proper right respect is shown both ways. We work for the same goal:

I certainly have no pulling interest toward Megalithic structure building.
Though I do Love Circles and Rocks and the Sun. But to do all that work???
One has to have a lot of time on ones hands which would mean life was good to have that much spare time.
Or the purpose was of such magnitude that it required that much effort.
Also it makes one wonder about the giant stories to move all those big Rocks.
I am also reminded of the Mound builders of the Ohio river valley.
Also the Mississippian Mound builders and others.
