Elven World: Return of The Tuatha de Danann

Celtic Mythology, Earth Guardians

For a number of years now I've been slowing building a collection of jade carvings. Jade collecting takes a surprising amount of knowledge to avoid getting suckered by a bad deal.

The first thing an amateur jade buyer or collector needs to know is that many merchants have a tendency to call any green-looking stone "jade", when it may really just be serpentine, glass or even plastic. Sadly, a number of names for minerals are very misleading because they use the word "jade" but are not, in fact, either jadeite or nephrite.

Multi Dimensional Reality

The world as you know it - all that you see, taste, feel and touch, comprises only about 5% of all of the stuff of the universe. The other 95% is what we have considered "nothing" or the "firmament" or the heavens or mystic Other Worlds. This 95% is multi-dimensional and consists of potential realities that may be perceived.

Avatar's.. Soul 'Yugen'..a namesake of simply being..As for beliefs from various religions, because I dont follow or are infused by any religion nor belief system and are only lead by my own soul knowings and truths of my own experiences like many have spoken also, I can never find the terms to use to express my inner structure & thinking's...So here we have 'Eclecticism' ,Ietsism  it is to me the closest 'namesake' or terminology... as my soul can & will doubt these things they all…See More
