Limiting Thoughts Are Just History

Earlier thoughts about your self-confidence or lack of it are just history.

It's how you think right now that makes a difference.

Thinking that you are limited by your history is just that: a thought.

It's a thought about a thought. Your current positive thought about your upgraded self-confidence can replace and override a needlessly limiting thoughts.

Last week I messed up in repeating a daily prayer. I have said the prayer thousands of times, but that morning the words wouldn't come out of my mouth. Should I throw in the towel? Maybe without the confidnce that Judasim teaches me I would. The next day I climbed back on my horse and did it right. Don't let anyone, including yourself, stop you from getting back on your horse.

Gateway to Temple of the 'God' Pan May Have Been Excavated at Golan National Park

Has the gate to the compound of the god Pan been discovered at Sussita (Hippos) National Park in the Golan? A monumental Roman gate discovered in the excavations by the University of Haifa at Hippos may cast light on the bronze mask of Pan – the only object of its kind found anywhere in the world – that was discovered in the same site during last year's excavation season. "Now that the whole gate has been exposed, we not only have better information for dating the mask, but also a clue to its function. Are we looking at a gate that led to the sanctuary of the god Pan or one of the rustic gods?" wonders Dr. Michael Eisenberg, the head of the expedition.

Last year, researchers from the Zinman Institute of Archaeology at the University of Haifa made one of the most unique and unusual findings of recent years. They unearthed a bronze mask representing Pan, the god of shepherds. Half man and half goat, Pan also represents fields, music, and merriment. The discovery was huge on a global scale. It also seriously complicated efforts to date the item or explain its possible function.

Dr. Eisenberg notes that for the time being it has only been possible to suggest hypotheses regarding the mask's original functioning and to use artistic and stylistic criteria to propose a possible date for its casting.

Israeli Lifeguard Discovers 900 Year Old Oil Lamp During Beach Run

By Naomi Altchouler/TPS

Ashkelon (TPS) – An Israeli lifeguard found a candle estimated to be about 900 years old during a morning run on the beach in Tel Ashkelon National Park in southern Israel last Tuesday.

"During the run I saw some planks washed up from the sea, and I stopped to pick them up", lifeguard Meir Amshik said. "Suddenly, I saw part of the new cliff deteriorating. I made my way there and saw the intriguing candle lying there in its entirety. I thought it might be an antique, so I picked it up. I went back to the lifeguard's tent and together with Avi Panzer, director of the lifeguard station, we contacted the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA)."

"The ancient oil lamp, which served as a light source, is dated to the 12th century AD (early Crusader period)," said Sa'ar Ganor, IAA archaeologist of the Ashkelon district. "You can really see the signs of wear and soot on the mouth. The candle was discovered as a result of receding coastal cliff, battered by the seasonal forces of nature."

"The candle represents part of the cultural richness of the ancient city of Ashkelon, which was a city of commerce," Ganor explained. "In Ashkelon, the port's function is to import goods from the sea, as well as to export manufactured goods from all parts of southern Israel. In Ashkelon Coast National Park you can find evidence of preserved life starting from the Canaanite period 4000 years ago, until the modern era."

Guy Fitoussi, of the IAA's Robbery Prevention Unit, praised the lifeguard for reporting the ancient treasure.

"The lifeguards of NPA and lifeguards as a rule, are our eyes on the beach. They are not just saving people, but even antiques," he said. "People must understand ancient fossils they find in the case, belong to the state and the general public. This finding could be very valuable for research and historical knowledge for all of us. Fortunately, more and more people report finding antiques ".

Amshik, for his part, is thrilled to be involved in this historic discovery.

"Finding such a treasure, it is very exciting," he said. "Just to feel a part of history, It fulfills a sense of appreciation for what was here before. It feels like being a link in the chain."
