Day 1: Chengdu, China

After years of meandering on mind and foot, I have come to the realization that ancient civilizations around the world have shared ideas. How was this done (via ships, aircraft, portals, inter-dimensional contact, dreams, collective unconscious… ) is what the discussion should really be about. The parallels of Angkor and Mayan architecture. The talk of an ancient flood. Trees of Life. Mummification. Jade’s connection with the afterlife. The proof flows longer than the Nile.

This is what brought my latest meanderings to Chengdu, China, where the ancient Shu lived over 3,000 years ago. Very different from the Shang Dynasty (who lived 700 miles northeast at the time), the Shu took a shamanistic approach to life, connecting with spiritual realms through elaborate ceremony and sacrifice and building monuments very similar to those found in Central and South America (but how?).

Today’s blog include Shu artifacts from the Jinsha Museum. Enjoy!

Day 11: Goodbye, India

While exploring the ruins of Maharishi’s ashram, I came across many trippy murals which made me wonder what folks were on back in the day.

Who knows? Maybe they were simply high on Transcendental Meditation.

Before leaving the ashram, I thanked all the creative souls for sharing their visions of beauty, bliss and the great beyond…

…and contributed a few words for the future.
