     Q U O T A T I O N S   O F   V A L U E 
=================================================

"The Binary Qabalah is the basic division of the Tree of Life 
into Right and Left, Above and Below, and Front and Behind, 
where two basic correspondences are brought out: Right = Above 
= Positive = 1, Left = Below = Behind = 0.  From these two basic 
divisions the complete Universe can be classified, which in 
essence is the basis for the ten basic divisions of the Tree of 
Life (referred to as Sephiroth, circles, or numbers)."

David Allen Hulse (The Eastern Mysteries : An Encyclopedic Guide to 
the Sacred Languages & Magickal Systems of the World : The Key of It
All, Book 1)

"No sooner did I sit down than Grandfather began to speak, 'So, 
you wonder how you communicated with the deer and knew where 
they were even though there was no logical reason or physical 
evidence that they were there.  As I have told you so many times 
before, all things of the Earth are connected to each other.  It 
is this connection that we call the spirit-that-moves-through-all-
things.  You were able to communicate with that spirit through your 
Inner Vision.'"

I will review some of these in greater depth in the future. Every one of the sites listed here is incredible in it's depth and content offered, or in it's mission. I recommend that you spend some time at each of these sites at some point in the near future to familiarize yourself with the awesome power that can wielded with the Internet and it's worldwide reach. Care2.com is a great place for connecting to other 'green people'. The site has been available for many years and now claims to be the "largest global community on the Web for environmentally conscious consumers" featuring 1.4 million members! The site started out as an online greeting card site, but changed to the environmental features with community, news and shopping in September 1999. I remember visiting this site when it was still care-mail. The site now features channels of information in Home, Pets, Garden and Money categories, free web- based Email for anyone. Check out the EcoInfo tab for a huge list of site information, links, and articles. Find a park, or locate other local information for environmental groups near you. Emagazine.com is the sister site to this print magazine which features well laid out online articles from this magazine which started publication in January 1990. There is an archive of back issues, a marketplace for Green goods and even an Ask E form for submitting questions to the editors. Sign up for a free trial issue to one of the longest running environmental magazines that still puts out a great magazine. Soundwaters.org is a Long Island Sound education website focused on providing quality education and events for those in the North East. I highly recommend it for anyone, and especially for teachers as the education ideas offered here are extraordinary. They feature culture, history, conservation and wildlife issues through excellent lectures, quality music events, and inspiring programs. Bioneers.org is run by the Collective Heritage Institute who has a mission that fits in perfectly with providing for a future of visionary interaction between the Earth and human culture. I highly recommend membership in this group which features a yearly conference and is working strongly to revitalize the spiritual man/nature connection that is so vitally important in our modern industrial culture. They also work to provide a resource for alternative agriculture and farming which brings together communities of people through economic models which support traditional and indigenous cultures. Visit the site for a quick overview of what they are working on, then sign up for a membership. Enn.com, Environmental News Network has been around for a long time - 1993, and since 1995 they've been hard at work alerting the world to environmental issues on the internet. The site is a treasure trove of resources including in-depth topics on global warming, alternative energy and many other topics. There is also multimedia features, forums, a marketplace of products, and up-to- the-minute environmental news - highly recommended. The Envirolink Network found at: Envirolink.netforchange.com provides in depth articles, progressive career information and environmental products. From the select box in the upper right you can choose from Animal Concerns, Envirolink, or Sustainable Business network. Each of these provide for an incredible amount of information, links, discussion forums, news, actions, and event calendars. They are also responsible for the GreenMarketplace, a huge list of Green products that is not to be missed. You will find anything you are looking for here, I promise!

I think that we should first think about where these teachings came from. The Hawaiians speak of passing down the information verbally, like many earlier cultures recommend. It is important to note that this seems to be the only way that these traditions were passed on, yet why was that required? Was it because the teacher was able to transmit more information when the lessons were taught by their own voice? Is something passed on 'in person' that cannot be received from a book? I like to think that both of these are true. Part of the importance of the huna philosophy is the nature of sound and how it is used - there are many Hawaiian chants that are known for there powerful and great healing powers, so it seems quite clear to me that the importance of vibrational healing was very highly regarded by the Polynesian people. The roots of the huna wisdom were reportedly passed down from 812 generations - an incredible 26,000 years! While searching for a root race, it seems that this one, along with the aboriginal teachings are some of the original teachings to appear on the planet. As I like to go back to the beginning to find the source of all things. Many westerners speak of similar principles such as the collective unconscious that we have discussed in previous articles, and the connection to the mind/body aspect of healing. But those teachings must have been learned or recognized from before, perhaps from the huna abilities that we all hold within our DNA? The word huna has as it's root a word that means peaceful unity, in a cooperative sense. If we can achieve this unity with all living things, then certainly we would be at peace, for we would truly understand and empathize with every living thing on the planet. The kahuna teaches of an instant healing, one that happens instantaneously and that allows the shadow body to recreate or heal the part of the body that is diseased or broken. Before this type of healing can take place though, it is important that there is no doubt or sin, and that all guilt has been cleared away. The kahuna refers to these elements as a complex or fixation which must be healed. This may be at work when other creatures such as salamanders or frogs are able to grow new limbs, or tails if they have been injured. Are the animals pure in their thoughts and knowledge of truth to facilitate the healing easier than humans! Remember from the first article in this series that it is necessary to have the correct attitude of joy and appreciation to communicate or have a connection to the Aumakua (over-soul or God spirit). The kahuna believes that any complex, or fixation at the lowest level (the Unihipili or heart self), prevents the higher self or over-soul from activating the healing. Certainly in modern psychology we can see this same definition and explanation of lower self complexes, neuroses or illnesses as preventing us from growing, or healing ourselves at higher levels. The higher level healings are those which seem to be more permanent, effective and powerful. If we can learn to remove the lower level complexes we will eventually be able to heal ourselves at all levels and allow our souls to go back into alignment with the higher soul or God spirit that watches over each of us. Again, we see a strong connection here to modern religion and spirituality. Have the ancient traditions passed down from Polynesian culture, and others such as Aboriginal Australia, and Egyptian been part of our own genetic makeup? The connection from huna philosophy and the beliefs of the trinity (lower, middle, higher self), or the four worlds of experience (objective, subjective, symbolic, holistic) as well as the seven principles of huna seem to reflect a deeper awareness that is similar to modern religions and philosophies. Perhaps some of the aspects of the principles of the teachings were lost as they were passed to those who did not respect them in the same way. <*>REDUCE-REUSE-RECYCLE this newsletter ===>FORWARD to FRIENDS<*> M U S I C R E V I E W ================================================= Spirit of the Forest 1993 by Baka Beyond Review by Brett Simpson There is not enough good words I can say about this recording. It is simply incredible and needs to be heard to understand. Martin Cradick a guitarist with the group Outback went into South East Cameroon, Africa to live for a while with the Baka Pygmy people of the region. What resulted was several CD's of recorded material which Martin later re-worked back home in the studio. Follow up trips and collaborations have resulted in the indigenous people creating their own record label, side musician recordings and even 'bootlegs' of some of the original Baka material and concerts. Certainly Martin's guitar work adds tremendously to the music here, but it is the rhythmic patterns, flutes, talking drums, limbindi and voices of the Baka people which hold my attention throughout the entire CD. Each song has a unique style to it, that is hard to describe. I would say the sound is somewhere between steel drum music from Jamaica, Celtic reels and jigs and the distinctive rhythms of Africa that many have heard on later Paul Simon albums. Overall though it's a joyful sound, one of inspiration, happiness, and one that wants you to get up and dance: the Baka do not have a different word for song/music and dance. It means the same thing to them; you will soon hear why. The CD begins with sounds of the crickets in the forest and quickly leads into the voice of a Baka woman singing deep in the forest which repeats throughout the track. The songs are quite long (5, 6, 7 minutes each), uplifting and fascinating to hear at first. After the first play though, I'll bet you get just as hooked as I did, and it seems like you could leave this one run all night without growing tired of what you are hearing. I recommend that you visit the Baka website to make your purchase as the sales/profits go directly to help the Baka people establish an education center and to further guitar music and song recording in the rainforest. You will also be treated to some great pictures of the people and the life in the rainforest. RATING: 5/5 - Magnificent Baka Pygmy recordings with guitar, flute and sampled sounds added to create a truly unique and inspirational CD.
