2000 years ago as the Historical Jesus was standing up against the Psychopaths in Charge of his time and place, the Mississippi Mound Builders were hard at work, making megalithic magic; working from sunrise to sunset, carrying baskets of dirt and tamping the dirt down with their feet, day after day, year after year. Thousands of mounds were constructed over thousands of years. So-called progress, a destructive ignorance, damaged or destroyed most of them. Yet what we have left is awe inspiring.
Megalithic sites remind us of our true nature: creative, strong, determined, cooperative, ceremonial, connected and powerful. It is important that we know these sites, as well as all the megalithic sites around the world, were built by our ancestors. They not only built them for themselves but they built them for us. I chose the example of the Mississippi Mound Builders because as a person of Choctaw descent, I know that I descend from their greatness and because these are the least known megalithic sites in the world today. Each and every one of us descends from such greatness!
It is not only destructive ignorance that has stolen our birthright from us but a continued effort by the Lords of Perception to make us forget who we really are. The Lords of Perception would have us believe that these sites were designed by aliens and that it was “slave-race” humans that merely toiled to make them. The Psychopaths in Charge need us to forget the fact that our ancestors designed these sites too. Because knowing our ancestors designed, built and project managed megalithic sites to completion, reminds us of our true nature.
What are the mounds we are building today? What gifts and reminders of human greatness do we leave our grandchildren’s grandchildren?
