The truth of how life works has been recorded and handed down by many sources of ancient wisdom and from indigenous people from around the world. The essence of this truth has a remarkably similar overlap, allowing for local traditions and practices. Many such versions come from different parts of the planet at a time when there was no known way of intercontinental; travel. Our own culture has experienced major schisms in the handed down understanding of truth which have led to societies that are not based on timeless practices, proven out of belief systems that provide sustainable life templates.
