The Present Moment and the Higher Self

Above is a brand-new video I've just published entitled "The Present Moment and the Higher Self."

It explores some of the amazing aspects of the myths and characters contained within the Gilgamesh cycle from ancient Sumer and Babylon and the cultures of ancient Mesopotamia.

The Gilgamesh series was re-discovered during the nineteenth century after thousands of years, inscribed upon ancient clay tablets in fragmentary condition. These tablets and their texts constitute some of the oldest, if not the oldest, extended human writing to be found anywhere in the world thus far, and us contain some of the oldest, if not the oldest, myths to have been written down and to have survived -- and yet their message is as relevant and important to our lives today as this present moment in which you and I are living right now.

Some of these tablets were inscribed close to the year we call 2000 BC, and the Gilgamesh cycle itself is thought to date to some time prior to 2000 BC. The fragmentary tablets were first deciphered, in part, by George Smith (1840 - 1876), whom scholar and translator of the definitive translation of the Gilgamesh cycle Professor Andrew George refers to as the "first professional Assyriologist" in this lecture regarding the ancient material, and whose life and achievements were discussed in this previous blog post written on George Smith's birthday, which is well worth re-visiting on this occasion.

I hope you will enjoy this new video about the vitally important subjects of the present moment and the Higher Self, and the ways in which the ancient myths and sacred stories entrusted to humanity in remote antiquity were designed to impart understanding of these concepts to our "intelligence-of-the-heart" (as Schwaller de Lubicz called it) through esoteric metaphor.
