Patriarchy versus Matriarchy

Patriarchy represents the root of human failure. Matriarchy represents an eternal possibility

Please do not be misled into thinking of matriarchy in terms of modern feminism, this is more to do with women adopting a patriarchal attitude and going to war with men. The matriarch in all societies, insect, animal and human leads her species, community or society on a path of sustainability for long-term survival. In other words she wants to create a comfortable nest, ensure a future for future generations and pass on the wisdom required to ensure continuity.

Patriarchy on the other hand is more egotistical and selfish. Men want to compete, to be heroes and lord over things with very little concern for their survival unless

Liberal Media Hype

To those blissfully ignorant of India

Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism) is flourishing in most countries yet modern India is stressed, more so because of its location, its aggressive neighbour and 20 to 30% Islamic population that is becoming increasingly militant and pushing to make India an Islamic state as per the Islamic agenda.

There are of course many political ideologies at play that are hyped up by irresponsible media organisations painting India and a negative light. These organisations are believers in the colonialist narrative of India, are divorced from actual knowledge and therefore their opinions erroneous and often biased.

Along with Islam, Christianity is fighting for its share of the take, because both of these religions are colonialist seeking more land,

A Failure in Archaeology

Categorising ancient science as religion

The world’s population by and large are being duped, brainwashed and educated with a large amount of false information in regards to world history. Schools are still teaching that the development of India only took place due to an Aryan invasion. This has clearly been disproved and in fact it is knowledge from India which gave rise to modern civilisation, a bitter pill for the colonialists to swallow because they still believe they are right.

In the field of archaeology in addition to finding, dating places of human habitation from antiquity and getting them into some kind of global picture, they have the audacity to classify evidence of ancient knowledge and science as religion. Religion

Grapeseed Oil

Fruit of the vine

Grape seed oil or grape oil is pressed from the seeds of grapes, and is a by-product of wine making. Unfortunately grape seed oil is usually extracted from grape seeds using a solvent rather than being pressed from the seeds which aromatherapists say makes it an inferior oil for aromatherapy massage.

However; for some, grape seed oil is a preferred cosmetic ingredient for control of skin moisturization and it is a popular massage medium as its nice to work with. It also contains more linoleic acid than many other oils.

The oils are usually extracted in factories by crushing the seeds and using solvents, but a healthier oil is gained by cold-pressing or expeller pressing.

Some

Jojoba Oil

A beauty industry favourite

A shrub native to southern Arizona, southern California, and north western Mexico, the name “jojoba” originated with the O’odham people of the Sonoran Desert in the southwest United States who treated burns with an antioxidant salve made from a paste of the jojoba seed.

Today Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) is commercially grown and its seeds collected from the wild for what is commonly called jojoba oil, however it is not actually an oil; its seeds contain a wax which is more similar to the sebum produced in our own skin or to whale oil than any vegetable oil. But as everyone calls it an oil, because it looks and feels like an oil we will call

Coconut Oil

A perfect food and body oil

All across the world all across the world coconut as well as being a popular food yields its oil that is used extensively for cooking, in confectionery and as a food in its own right. Interestingly in a recent BBC documentary, Doctor Michael Mosley conducted an experiment with saturated fats and found that those who consumed a modest amount of coconut oil on a daily basis actually had reduced levels of the bad cholesterol that some people go on about.

There is no doubt that coconut oil is a healthy food and it’s also ideal for skincare as a moisturiser and massage oil.

Coconut trees have traditionally been grown as a semi wild

East vs West

Spiritual truth in the East and the lack there of in the West

Gaia as the world tree by Alex GrayThe tree of life giving life – East but being destroyed by human greed, the West

The philosophical and lifestyle differences between East and West are apparent particularly when travelling from any western country to India. It is such a crazy chaotic place and yet there is something wonderful and transcendent in India not in addition to the resplendent colours and the joy on people’s faces.

I’ve written several posts on the subject and now thanks to a line by Chaman Lal, the penny has finally dropped in regard to what I’m attempting to

The Story of Omar

One man begins a global transformation

Young Omar was said to have been something of a precocious child yet he was also uncannily charming and got away with things that other children may have earned some reprimand. But children were loved because their parents saw them as an investment towards an unforeseeable future.

The village where young Omar lived was inconspicuous, the wall of woven twigs that kept lions and other creatures out of the village at night was in the process of being replaced with a much more solid mud brick wall. Omar and the other boys his age helped their elders as they were capable although much of the time they played as they watched.

The village was

Tracing our Origins

Where did modern Humans originate?

In early April 2019 I posted reference to an article in National Geographic on Facebook about stone tools found in the Philippines that pre-date the arrival of modern humans to the islands by roughly 600,000 years—but researchers aren’t sure who made them and the following note:

Do you think we all came out of Africa? There are other theories so we should be circumspect in what we believe……

From the same period: Homo Erectus is discovered at Lantian, China. Homo Erectus is discovered at Tighhenif, Algeria. Anglia man is located in East Anglia, Britain. Paleolithic sites are found in China as early as this date. Zhoukoudian, about 50 kilometers (31

The Hindu Gods

Creating balance in our universe and our lives

Who are these Hindu gods and are they significant? Some say they are and some say they are not and there are perhaps tens of millions of conflicting opinions as to the nature of these gods so let’s examine them in the light of science and reason.

Siva-Shakti: It is said that before this universe was created there was a state of nothingness or emptiness yet this emptiness was not completely empty because it contained the potentiality from which existence emerged. It is perhaps an argument of logic and reason that seems to defy reason and yet modern science has an inclination to agree.

This state of emptiness or nonexistence is
