The Beothuk

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

Canada is an emancipated country inrepparttar relative scheme of things. But it has a dark history that some people aren't aware of, and others would like to keep it that way. Inrepparttar 140864 early 20th centuryrepparttar 140865 last Beothuk Indian met her death after various parties encouraged other Indians (Micmac) to hunt people to their extinction. It is true thatrepparttar 140866 Beothuk stole merchandise but it is also true that their culture assumed that what wasn't being used was forrepparttar 140867 common people to use and that those who weren't usingrepparttar 140868 canoe or boat wouldn't mind if it was borrowed. In time they returnedrepparttar 140869 goods if they were given a chance.

The debate in scholarly journals would suggest this was part ofrepparttar 140870 difficulty and that there is little proof there was a concerted effort to eradicaterepparttar 140871 Beothuk. What truth in that suspicion of mine actually exists is up to you to decide. Clearly there will be no conclusive documentation I can provide; but there might be a reason to eliminate these people who are probablyrepparttar 140872 cause ofrepparttar 140873 moniker 'red-men'. They would smear their body withrepparttar 140874 spiritual red ochre that had been part of their cosmogony sincerepparttar 140875 time ofrepparttar 140876 ancient copper trade to Isle Royale. This was a protection from evil spirits. Obviously it didn't work in this world whenrepparttar 140877 European heathen arrived to dispossess all natives and their quaint attitudes that had built up over thousands of years. The ‘protection’ was inadequate to protect what may have beenrepparttar 140878 remnants ofrepparttar 140879 Keltic 'Brotherhood' that first inter-mingled in North America. Their canoe or boat construction is unlike any other and Farley Mowat certainly thinks they were in touch withrepparttar 140880 Scots and Celts sincerepparttar 140881 8th century AD. There is a burial that archaeologists have found that interests me and I hope some day they do genetic testing onrepparttar 140882 body to see if they can track or tracerepparttar 140883 genetic material to Ireland or Norway. This body had been disinterred or taken out of its grave and thenrepparttar 140884 bones were covered with red ochre. I believe this was a high priest or shaman who hadrepparttar 140885 knowledge of his ancestors from Druidic Europe. The crouched position ofrepparttar 140886 skeleton is reminiscent of some Scythian and Keltic burials as well as those near Mt. Carmel Neanderthal back to 150,000 years ago.

The fact is, no real

Many people spend a lot of time worrying. The strange thing is that they are always worrying about something or someone of which they have no control.

You see if you controlrepparttar outcome of your worry, you would, and therefore, you would not need to worry. The key word there is control. When you set a task in motion, you don’t have “total” control ofrepparttar 140764 outcome. (I wrote “total” because if you know how to use your mind and your thoughts effectively you can increaserepparttar 140765 “control” that you do have immensely. To learn how to do that go to:

Worry is an emotion. And you can always change your emotions or change your feelings about something or someone. Whatever can be changed can be controlled. Therefore you are in control as to whether or not you worry, doubt, or fear anything.

The problem arises in that when we set out to do a task, we worry about whether or not it will work according to “our” specifications. You have set-up in your mind a certain parameter for whichrepparttar 140766 result must fit. If it doesn’t fit that “specific parameter,” then you will feel as if you have failed.

How many times has something not worked outrepparttar 140767 way you “originally” intended and instead you ended up with something far better than you “think” you imagined? (Or did you really imagine that better outcome and forgot?)
