Look, tell yourself a Story you never told yourself before, and make it come True.
Tell yourself the Truth. You don’t have to caterwaul. You don’t have to exalt yourself either. You exist as much as anyone else. Whatever condition you may see yourself in, you can accept yourself as My Beloved. You are My Beloved. Extend yourself to Me. You know very well that I wish to bring you close to Me. You also know that I also extend Higher than the world. I am naturally Higher than the appearance of the world.
Remember how it is said that when a Stranger knocks at your door, invite the stranger in, for he may be a blessing to you. You never know Who it is knocking on your door. It can be Christ at your door in whatever guise Christ may be wearing.
The same is true for Me. Assuredly, I am at your door, for you and I and Christ and Buddha and Allah and every Great One, by whatever Name, in whatever pose, We are One and the Same if only you had the eyes to see. There are no exceptions.
Knock on My door, and I will welcome you. No matter how you are dressed, it is you who do not know Who You Are. You have no idea. You most are most definitely Soul. You may well surprise yourself as Christ. Hey, you could be Christ in wolf’s clothing.
One day, everyone will recognize himself or herself as Truth. Give yourself a break. Unto Me, a Prince was born. Be it then. Be a Prince. Now give birth to your True Self with the Honor due you.
The nine states are Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Washington. Each of these states does not currently issue a state ID that lives up to federal ID minimum security requirements, according to the REAL ID Act of 2005. That means these states have about three months to make changes to their state IDs or drivers licenses so that they meet federal government standards. Otherwise, you’ll need to apply for or renew a passport—or at the very least, find yours, wherever you stashed it after the last trip—before passing TSA and getting on a commercial airplane to another U.S. city.
If the High Court judges were serious about justice they would have at least checked the colonial historical records, which show that when issuing Crown land leases First Nations’ rights were to be upheld, in the sense that Aboriginal people were to maintain their continuing rights, in particular the right to live on those lands, hunt, gather and do ceremony. It therefore follows that the judges deliberately, and conveniently, erred when they drew their conclusions that the Minister’s intentions were such that he intended that perpetual leases were the same as freehold. This assumption lead to the ruling in Wilson v Anderson that Western Land Leases extinguished Native Title in the same way freehold title did. Once again Aboriginal Peoples’ rights were trampled on, given that First Nations Peoples’ rights were never genuinely considered after the 1841 R v Bonjon court case.
Now we return to the Native Title Act’s Section 47, which discriminates by stating that any extinguishment of Native Title by a pastoral lease is to be disregarded, if the lease is owned by an Aboriginal person or persons. It is bad law and a law that cannot remain on the books because it deliberately racially discriminates against First Nations Peoples, by setting apart and denying our rights as opposed to the rights of non-Aboriginal people.
Term leases and Native Title
On the other hand, term leases, be they 10, 20, or 40-year leases, suppress Native Title for the period, but the Native Title becomes active again at the end of that term and negotiations are to commence in respect to the future of that land.
Native Title claim groups, and especially the Applicants, need to be very careful when the lawyers for the local Native Title Service or Native Title Representative body ask the Applicant group to surrender future claims in respect to land when concluding a Native Title determination. That is, these non-Aboriginal lawyers, who represent these Native Title bodies, do not make any distinction between the different classes of land, therefore too many of our people across this country are being requested by ‘Native Title specialist lawyers’ to forego their inherent rights to future claims and future acts over these lands.
When the Moors Rules in Europe
Bettany Hughes (2011)
When the Moors Ruled in Europe corrects many common misconceptions about Muslim rule in Spain between 711 and 1492 AD. Historical and archeological evidence contradicts the prevailing belief that this 700 year rule represented a violent military occupation. At the time Muslim Berbers from North Africa invaded Spain, the Christian/Visigoth cities were collapsing into chaotic anarchy – all the evidence suggests the inhabitants welcomed the Berbers for the security they provided.
Owing to its favorable climate, Spain quickly became the primary agricultural hub for a Muslim Empire that extended from North Africa to the Chinese border. After introducing irrigation, Muslim rulers also introduced citrus, avocado and other exotic crops which quickly spread across Europe. Owing to a faith committed to learning, the Moors also introduced universal literacy (in contrast to the rest of Europe where only clerical elites were…
