Deceived!

The lie of 1652 lies in the fact that there was engagement 180 years before 1652 with the local Khoe of South Africa. Charles Bell’s painting was painted 200 years after the fact! Deceived into belief is a crime against humanity too!

“Several dead men and various scattered weapons are located in a large arena. Near the center of the image is a man wearing armor standing in the middle of an arena looking up at a large crowd. The man has his right foot on the throat of an injured man who is reaching towards the crowd. Members of the crowd are indicating a “thumbs down” gesture. The arena is adorned with marble, columns, flags, and statues.”

ENTRAPMENT

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
