“The ability of great naturalists to intimately describe the macro and microcosms of our world teaches us that, if we open our senses, inspiration lies everywhere in the natural world.” ~ Katherine Keith
Crystal clear glass panes gazing back at her with empty eyes, the concrete jungle bustles by whilst her lonesome spirit dies.
Reaching out for the reflective barrier in front of her, a certain numbness travels through her fingertips and makes its way to her soul; dimming the tolerance for mindless city chatter in a flourescent flickering that never sleeps.
Discontent reverberated through her cells, well-versed with the heedless world. Restlessness of the hive and way of life shadowed now, behind her. Cotton-candy clouds underneath, the plane wings splitting through a canopy of white to unveil itself as the thick atmosphere dissipates. Lowering and lowering, the plane wings glide through foreign tree tops, a green she had not yet been blessed to witness.
Stepping into the rustic air, the concrete on which her heels tap reminds her of the past heavier than the luggage she carries on her arm.
From one transport vehicle to the next, she makes her way to the hills. Entranced by the viridescent shimmer of conifers and sprouting weeds, from the pocket of her jeans, she swaps her hand to trace the rough exterior of the trees. None of the city maps could have led her here but she’ll need one to leave. Is that what it’s like to be free?
She lost herself betwixt ever changing leaves, heady among the trees. She wept joyously beneath the wild skies as she saw the stars shining brightly. They shone and debuted stories of ancient times. She pinched herself, she could not live an ordinary life with an undisclosed universe camouflaged from her eyes.
Towing her luggage she knew they wondered why she left, to her but an alien, to them an alien species to her. In this clearing she knew that they were not sharing light, the glaring hive was sharing fears.

Jagat is a Sanskrit word that means “world,” specifically the physical world or planet. In Advaita Vedanta, jagat is understood as a persons’ subjective experience of reality in the material world. It is described specifically in contrast to Brahman, which is considered to be the Supreme Reality, Infinite and Omnipresent. In this understanding, jagat is considered an illusion and unreal in comparison to Brahman. Brahman is the truly awakened state, where individuals rediscover their oneness with Brahman.
If Atlantis existed, why is there no conclusive archeological evidence?
The short answer is: it’s simply not time. Humanity is not ready to understand its remote past. Such a discovery would change the fabric of society in dramatic ways and humanity as whole is not quite ready to take that step. Yet according to the Higher, the evidence is unmistakably there waiting to be discovered. There have been a few finds that have pointing the way and eventually this will open the door to the greatest archeological discoveries of all time.
What was Atlantis really like?
Atlantis went through several periods from primitive beginnings to genuine sophistication spanning vast stretches of time, far greater than the entire recorded history of modern civilization. Also, Atlantis was not an isolated civilization. It was part of a world culture and there were earlier civilizations reaching back to even more remote times.
In the end, Atlantis corrupted itself creating one of humanity’s the darkest periods. As Albert Einstein said about the danger of nuclear war, “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but world War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” In a sense, this is what happened with Atlantis. Its eventual demise along with natural geological cataclysms has been a major reason knowledge of Atlantis has been reduced to legend.
Yet long before its decay, Atlantis had a golden age. Science, spirituality and society blended together in magnificent ways. Most of all, the veil between the spiritual and the material was not so great and there was a natural understanding and cooperation with the divine. Challenges and trials were still there, but without question it was a marvelous time for humanity.
What is the significance of Atlantis today?
Atlantis shares much with today’s world even though humanity is older now. The rapid development of modern society reflects an unconscious rekindled of Atlantean achievements yet expressed on a grander scale. Civilization today is far more developed overall than it has ever been. There is more spiritual light on the planet than ever before and more opportunity to grow spiritually despite today’s challenges.
History is knowledge and knowledge is power. The significance of Atlantis is its eventual resurfacing will reawaken the recognition of our own potential and collective abilities. Eventually, our society will have to come to terms with its own past so it can take its biggest leap forward into a modern golden age.
According to Hindu cosmology, the universe is divided into multiple worlds known as Loka. The earthly world, or Bhu Loka, is divided into sub-worlds, one of which is Martya Loka.
This is the lowest level, at which souls live in human bodies on a material plane. As they transcend to other Loka, it is believed that matter transforms into energy.
According to Hindu cosmology, the universe is divided into multiple worlds known as Loka. Of these Loka, Naraka Loka is considered to be one of the lowest spiritual planes, similar to the concept of Hell in Christianity.
It is believed that after people die, their spirit’s Karma is judged in Naraka Loka, after which it transcends to the next Loka.
A trinity is a group of three related deities, concepts or people. The divine trinity in Hinduism is referred to as Trimurti in Sanskrit. According to some yogis, the Trinity combines and activates when the Divine manifests creation and is thought to resolve into the Ultimate Consciousness when creation ends. It is widely accepted within Hinduism that the three forms of the Hindu Trinity actually represent earth, water and fire.
There are an estimated 10,000 distinct religions worldwide. About 84% of the world’s population is affiliated with Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, or some form of folk religion.
