De film van Marcel Messing over de Katharen is vanaf vandaag te zien op.
De laatste Christen mensen gemeenschap in Europa, vernietigd door de katholieke kerk. Het goede nieuws is dat deze mensen nog steeds onder ons leven en weer zijn opgestaan met hun Eenheids boodschap!
meer Marcel zijn ego ervaringen verhaal dan van de Katharen en als je dat herkent is hij daarin vrij in

Wherever you go, whether to the mountains, the forests, the lakes or the seaside, if you wish to demonstrate that you are children of God who aspire to a more subtle and luminous life, you must show that you are conscious of the presence of the etheric creatures who live there.
Approach them with respect and reverence; begin by greeting them, then tell them of your friendship and love, and ask for their blessings. Enchanted by your attitude, these creatures, who perceive you from afar, prepare to shower their gifts upon you in the form of peace, light and pure energy. You will feel bathed and enveloped in the love and wonderment of these spiritual beings; when you return to the valleys and towns, you will bring all these riches back with you, as well as revelations and ideas that are broader and more profound.

Whenever someone gives in to a base desire, they shackle themselves and become a slave; this is why we find so many slaves on earth. Even if human beings appear to be free, the truth is that inwardly, they faithfully obey a master: their lower nature, which exploits them mercilessly. In order to justify themselves they say, ‘I couldn’t help myself’, without thinking that from the moment they utter this phrase, it is precisely because they are already enslaved, there is someone else inside who has taken control and who is holding tightly to the reins.
Someone who is free never says, ‘I couldn’t help myself’, because these are words of capitulation, a calling card on which is written, ‘I am weak, I am nothing.’ ‘How can that be? On my card it says that I am the president of this, the director of that, inspector of such and such’ Ah? Perhaps, but an Initiate reads something completely different.

Krijsende plant van Harry Potter is niet zomaar een verzinsel
De vrouwelijke en mannelijke alruin beschreven door Beck in 1530, in middeleeuwse stijl

Schrijfster JK Rowling putte niet volledig uit eigen fantasie. In deel twee van de bekende boekenreeks moeten Harry en zijn vriendjes de alruin verpotten, wat tot een heel stel krijsende alruinwortels leidt. In 16e eeuwse kruidboeken werd al geschreven over deze plant. Deze zijn sinds kort in langdurige bruikleen van Naturalis. Hier zijn ze niet alleen beter beschermd tegen diefstal, maar ze kunnen hier ook beter worden bestudeerd. Botanisch filosoof Norbert Peeters en botanica Isabela Pombo Geertsma leggen het uit.

Fuch en Bock
De kruidboeken die zijn overgekomen zijn geschreven in de 16e eeuw door Fuchs en Bock, volgens Peeters de "geestelijk vader van de moderne botanie". Zij hadden als doel om kennis over de geneeskrachtige werking van de Europese planten te bundelen. Bij de tekeningen, die door een houtsnijder in het boek zijn gedrukt en later zijn ingekleurd, staat in gotisch schrift allerlei informatie over de geneeskrachtige werking van de plant.
Een voorbeeld is de alruin. De wortels van deze plant worden vaak getekend als een klein mensje, en deze plant zou dan ook de mens in zijn geheel gezonder maken: de geest dus. Deze plant komt terug bij zowel Fuch als Bock. Deze plant werd verkocht tegen psychische problemen en was best wel kostbaar. Daarom verzonnen sommige handelaren een listig trucje. Ze kerfden een mensenlichaam uit de wortel van de goedkopere heggenrank en lieten hem vervolgens nog een aantal dagen in de pot staan zodat hij weer wat wortelhaartjes kreeg. Ze verkochten de plant met harig wortelfiguurtje vervolgens met winst als alruin.

De boeken leveren hopelijk nieuwe informatie op. Niet alleen over hoe men in de 16e eeuw over planten dacht, maar ook over hekserij. Botanici nemen nu aan dat giftige planten werden gebruikt door 'heksen', voornamelijk vrouwen die veel wisten van de geneeskrachtige werking van kruiden. Pombo Geertsema: "Nu wordt vooral de nachtschadefamilie in verband gebracht met hekserij, maar waarom? Er zijn wel meer giftige planten. Dus waarom deze?". Wellicht bieden de boeken van Fuch en Bock uitkomst.
Er staat ook veel symboliek in de boeken zoals Hercules bij de populier en de buxus met de haan

de schoonheid van een tienduizenden jaren oude offerplek op de Vuursteenberg,
voor zij die het lezen kunnen
Most people think that when they reach a certain age, their faculties will inevitably decline. Not only will they lose their teeth and hair along with the use of their legs, arms, eyes and ears, but they will also lose their memory and even their wits, and everybody believes this is normal. Well no, it is not normal. For the Initiates, in any event, old age is the best period of life, because years of searching and experience have not only brought them health, but also clarity, wisdom, peace and joy, and everyone comes to learn from them – even children are drawn to them and love them.
If the opposite opinion is prevalent in the world, it is because for most people, old age is indeed a very unhappy time as a result of the way they lived during their youth. If they spent their youth wasting their energies on foolishness and stupidities, what can they expect in old age? »

Drinkwaterbedrijven slaan alarm: geef geen vergunningen voor aardwarmteonderzoek
woensdag 1 december 2021
Amilcar said. "It really grabbed my attention. It didn't look natural." Amilcar couldn’t match any processes with the structures. While he was studying his findings, Heinrich Frank from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil found another unnatural-looking cave in Novo Hamburgo. This wasn’t his only find. Huge Structures Heinrich found hundreds of similar tunnels in the Brazilian wilderness and eventually ventured inside them. This was when he realized how large they were: they’d extend for 300 or more feet with smaller branches that led to separate rooms that snaked from the main section. Shallow Grooves During these trips, Heinrich noticed grooves carved in the granite, basalt, and sandstone rock that comprised the tunnels. After getting a closer look, he realized they were claw marks. "Most consist of long, shallow grooves parallel to each other,” he and his team wrote in their group research paper about this project. Some Irregularity “[They were] grouped and apparently produced by two or three claws," Heinrich wrote. "These grooves are mostly smooth, but some irregular ones may have been produced by broken claws." Where did these ancient claw marks originate?
Niche Animal Homes Further research revealed the tunnels to be palaeoburrows — which surprised the archaeologists. "I didn't know there was such a thing as palaeoburrows," Heinrich said. “I'm a geologist, a professor, and I'd never even heard of them." Since he authored a massive study on them, he’s probably familiar now. Size Differences At least 1,500 palaeoburrows have been found in southern Brazil. The tunnels are either 3.5 feet around or six feet tall and 12 feet wide — there’s definitely a noticeable size difference between the types. The burrows are complex systems and some are longer than others. Accidentally Finding Something The one discovered by Amilcar was the longest palaeoburrow in Brazil. It's twice as large as the second-place system. He may not have realized what he found initially, but his curiosity drew him to a nearly unbelievable feature made by animals. They’re Megafauna After studying the markings, researchers believe they were made by now-extinct giant ground sloths and giant armadillos! These tunnel systems were actually their burrows. The creatures who made them were certified megafauna — they were at least 20 feet long. But that begged the question: how did a slow-moving giant sloth build a tunnel this complex? What’s Your Secret? Day and night, that question began eating into the paleontologists' brains. The size of these primitive creatures alone couldn't account for the hundreds, or thousands, of miles of caves in a single system. Leaving it Behind If one sloth burrowed through the soil by themself to make the tunnels, they’d have to spend most of their lives making these structures. Scientists theorize the sloths may have handed down their burrows from one generation to the next. This created a complex, multi-generational home-building strategy. Still Observing When their children took over building a tunnel, they were free to add chambers and passages of their own. This would help their home continue to expand. Researchers aren’t sure about the accuracy of this theory and are still learning more about the animals to confirm or deny it. Another Mystery Linking these caves to giant animals also solved another long-running paleontology mystery: where are the animals’ burrows? Experts knew about these sloths, but they had no idea where they'd lived. Plenty of fossil evidence for creatures with digging tendencies had been uncovered by researchers, but they didn’t find these animals’ homes. Now, they could get a complete picture of the beasts. Through the Strata Besides their size, these burrows are impressive because the animals dug them in sedimentary or volcanic rock. Some were able to make their way through sandstone — something a human would need an ax to accomplish. Linking these tunnels to the giant sloths was a huge relief for paleontologists. They finally had answers to a question they'd long been dwelling on. Where are They? Though the animals were prevalent, researchers couldn’t find their homes for a few reasons. They likely didn’t know the best ways to look for the ancient burrows and with the passage of time, a majority of them likely collapsed under the weight of the shifting soil. Big Boys Some of the biggest palaeoburrows were made by sloths from the Lestodon genus. They reached 15 feet in length and weighed 5,709 pounds.
Their size is almost incomprehensible when you compare them to modern slow-moving sloths. Imagine standing near one of their ancestors. Well-Preserved The enormous burrows dug by ground sloths and giant armadillos were large and apparently well-structured enough to maintain their shape after thousands of years. It also helps that both of the animals went extinct about 10,000 years ago, not too far in the past. But it's a misconception to think that all the most bizarre animals are already extinct. In fact, there's plenty of creatures that roam the earth right now that are more wild than anything from prehistoric times
