Breathe & Stay the Course
The Saber-tooth Tiger


A lineage of men and women of knowledge –or seers–
which originated in ancient Mexico regarded Saber-

toothed Tigers as beings with an outstanding capacity to
perceive non-ordinary realities. The sages of this lineage

affirm that such capacity is directly related to the
sabertooth’s breathing, which is very deep and expansive.
For them, breathing in this manner enables the body to call

in on the force that binds everything in the universe
together –a force they call Intent.

It is Intent that allows anyone who taps into it to enter non-
ordinary states of perception. The seers of ancient Mexico
called these states “Dreaming”. The art of Dreaming –it is an

art– can be practiced while one is awake or asleep.
Mastering it, however, takes a lifetime of the most arduous
discipline and purpose. Seers referred to this kind of purpose
as ‘Unbending Intent’, and affirm that Saber-toothed Tigers
possess such unbending intent that they did not actually go
extinct. According to those men and women of knowledge,
some members of that genus transferred their awareness,
through Dreaming, into another realm of perception. “It is

not they who are imprisoned”, seers say, “but us”.

Each one of us, however –if we so desire–, can reclaim our
rightful legacy as travelers of awareness. And, just like the
Saber-toothed Tiger of Intent, Dream our totality into a new
realm of perception. The name given to this realm by the

seers of this lineage is Total Freedom.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt

Barber-Scotia College
Atlanta Area Alumni Host Breakfast with the President

Breakfast Buffet with Host, Dr. Olah and Ms. Pat Spellen Adair, ’66,
Ms. Veronica L. Ransom, ’68 with Class of 1966 50th Year Memory Book

On Saturday morning, October 28, 2017, the Atlanta Area Alumni of Barber-Scotia College met to
have Breakfast with the President, Dr. David L. Olah. He learned of the alumni’s September
Founder’s Day Celebration and expressed a desire to share with the alumni. That wish was granted.
He was accompanied by the Chair of the College’s Board of Trustees, Ms. Karen Soares, and Mrs.
Sandra Olah.

The ambience of the gathering space was one of warmth and welcome to “Scotia World”—framed
pictures of landmarks, tee and sweat shirts displayed, table cloths and center pieces, paraphernalia
and archival materials. The setting both provoked and inspired.

It was a time of sharing on both sides. He gave an update on the “State of Affairs” at Scotia—as did
Ms. Soares—and the remarks were followed by a question and answer period. Dr. Olah brought
paraphernalia; we shared paraphernalia. We shared archival materials of the Atlanta Alumni
Chapter chartered in 1972 and non-functioning for nearly 20 years. The Alumni introduced
themselves and shared their “Scotia Stories.” The host presented Dr. Olah with a framed picture of
Faith Hall for his office. Ms. Adair, ‘66 presented him with the result of her labor with her class
reunion project—the Memory Book—and the note of their substantial monetary donation to
Barber-Scotia for their reunion year. This gathering was a highly productive event and in a phrase,
“. . . a great time for friendship and fellowship.”

Attendees were: James Adair, Patricia Spellen Adair, ’66; Joan Grant, ’67; Lillie Glover Jackson, ’67;
Arthur May Jones, ’68; Veronica L. Ransom, ’68 and John E. Watson, ’70.
