They believed in ghosts. Not simple ghosts, but living animations of animals, plants, and minerals. Read more:

Four days ago we had an entry about BRICKS and their meeting in July in Fortaleza in Brazil and today I looked up information about Fortaleza and found out that it is one of the largest cities of Brazil. It is located in North-eastern Brazil. To the north of the city lies the Atlantic Ocean.

I then came across an article about that part of the world and in the article the following paragraph:

The farm occupies the former roaming grounds of the Tupi and Guarany tribes. Their collective mythologies were drenched in the anthropomorphic potentialities of life. They believed in ghosts. Not simple ghosts, but living animations of animals, plants, and minerals. Strands in the web of life. Everyday objects cloaked in the majestic tapestry of shamanic vision. The born and unborn. Werewolves, hummingbirds, and glowworms all carefully inscribed into an oral record, cursed and caressed in the same breath.

We deal a lot with consciousness and one of the tenets of spiritual writings is that all material things hold spiritual in them and that the reason of the existence of the material world is to provide opportunities for the spiritual to mature. And this maturation takes place by the spiritual using the embodiment in a material cover as a means of action and that in in a direction to develop love towards God and the neighbour.

The biblical description for this is found in Romans 8:19-23:

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

This knowledge about spiritual things coming to us from the Bible or from other spiritual writings is something that seemed to be the property of all people all over the world and some seem to have preserved this knowledge – it was “carefully inscribed into an oral record.”

Now this preservation of spiritual knowledge is a sign of spiritual maturity and having lost this spiritual knowledge is a sign of degeneration.

What we understand under advanced civilization is in reality a sign of decline, a decline towards materialism, and people who still have this spiritual knowledge are the really advanced human beings und are closer to the spiritual world and will therefore be in a more progressive state in the hereafter.

But such people, who are still able to understand spiritual things, are a witness to the fact, that what science tells as, namely that the human race is progressing, is not only an illusion but very misleading. The human race did not start on a very low and primitive level as science wants us to believe but on a level that, especially compared to our present state, was much superior to ours and enjoyed life that was real life and not misery as we know it now.

The best example is health. Health was simply not an issue and only with progressive spiritual decline something like diseases emerged.

When God came to earth to visit his children, at the time of Adam, he dealt with spiritual things. Physical problems like sicknesses were not solved because they did not exist. When God came to earth a few thousand years later, as the man Jesus Christ, then a huge part of his ministry was the healing of the sick. And today this dealing with the miseries of the human body is a big industry.

But these original people of South America are also witnesses that the knowledge about God was spread all over the world and was part of all the people on all continents.
