Learning from God Minos

Domine Sacra and Lady    

by Nataša Pantović

A Macedonian lady just told me that her name is Manče and that the name does not mean anything. Coming from such an ancient place, guarding goodness naturally, I was certain that her name hides a higher mystery. My research went back and found the name of the 13th century rulers of these lands (Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Albania) carrying the same name and all claiming supremacy over its origins. So this research, for me, became even more interesting, it went down the history lane of this amazingly mixed universe of Balkan countries.

Domine Sacra

Manče derives from Domine, that is the name we called the Lord or Dio or God for many centuries, governed by many rulers. So whenever there was a forceful conversion into any of the governing religions, the name was changed / converted / claimed. Mind you, during our past, all the conversions related to our religious sentiments were by the definition forceful, and our Lady Wisdom just can not live with the Force other than Love. Killing for the Queen is still killing, no matter how do you call your Queen. The true Queen will not brain-wash you into any killing, she will pass the Wisdom of the First commandment that we are trying to comprehend since the time Eternal.

In Greek mythology, Minos (Greek: Μίνως, Minōs) was the first King of Crete, son of Zeus and Europa. After his death, Minos became a judge of the dead in the underworld.

The Minoan civilization of Crete has been named after him by the archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans.


"Minos" is often interpreted as the word for "king".

The name Menče or the surname Menalo is a beautiful follow up of the Christian tradition mystically hiding the name Dominic. So we get Menčetić or the Montenegran Minić, still expressing the same meaning, Domino, for the Lord, or the King.

Going back in time, the name Minos follows the 'ascetic' of the ancient Sanskrit term “muni”, and it deeply resonates with the legend about Minos living in caves on Crete, with the Neo-Platonism and so much loved and respected Confucius of Ancient China, who all find wisdom within the drive of the “ascetic” life-style.

Some scholars go even further analyzing the ancient names of the founder kings, finding, Menes of Egypt, Mannus of Germany, and Manu of India, and even with Maeonia (can you see the resemblance with the name Macedonia).

As it usually is with our ancient rulers, Minos governed Crete over a period spanning many generations. I have already explained to you, my dear explorers, that this was the practice since the beginning of time, we have used the same name, basking on the glory of our ancestors, claiming own supremacy, re-writing history, when necessary, copying our grandparents works.

According to some of our scientists and researchers, the first King Minos was the son of Zeus and Europa, the 'good' king Minos, recorded within our 1,000s of years old mythological records, read artistic visions, read subconscious wisdom, he was held in such esteem by the Olympian gods that, after he died, he was made one of the three 'Judges of the Dead'.

The later, the 'Power-Thirstily' king Minos, who led the Cretans to the Trojan War, lived his life since, in the form of all our 'Power-Thirstily' kings or rulers.

At one point of time, when living in the UK, English people living there did not lie; at one point of time, while living in New Zealand, people of New Zealand did not lie. Traveling from South to North Island we could find oranges left in the middle of the road, by a farmer, who solely relied on the customers' goodness to leave some money behind. At one point of time, Ethiopians were known as the nation that does not lie, and I spent a month in the worst area of Addis, with no money to “guard” me, without once being insulted. At one point of time I hitch-hiked through the Adriatic coast, as a student, with not a single incident endangering my voyage, at one point of time Japan guarded the goodness within its land to such an extend that each one of us, travelers, would return with an amazing story of their honesty.

We as conscious parents, deeply and sincerely, wish to see our kids growing in an environment that expresses Truth as the highest Beauty, and yet “I as an individual know nothing” and we wake up every single day facing new changed circumstances within the conscious and subconscious patterns of humanity.

Following the Truthfulness, as the Highest Beauty, at one point of time, in the Phoenician Mediterranean countries not only Athens, but Mycenae itself, we were all culturally bound to the kings of Knossos.

According to Plato, after his death, Minos became a judge of the dead in Hades. His son Rhadamanthus judged the souls of Asians, the other one, Aeacus judged Europeans, and Minos had the deciding vote.

Learning from Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, a Croatian Independent Kingdom Town, was a rich and prosperous Kingdom of traders. In his Phd research, Dr Vujić tells us of a couple of interesting points that defined the area. The pilligrams of the time used to travel through the Croatian Coast, following their routes through the Adriatic coast. The city Councils could defend themselves only by following some wise decisions, paying ransom to the various Kings of the area. As the Papal Kingdom Protect oral, they followed the flow of the Papal decisions .

The Church was against all the Catholic slaves' trading, but has allowed the trade of Bosnian slaves, especially the trade of Bosnian “Patarene”, or “Bogumils”, and this trend has marked the 13th and 14th century Europe. Bosnians were exported as slaves, mostly women, but also the peasants. The slaves were legally exported into many ports of Mediterranean - Venice, or Barri in Italy, in to Palestine, Crete, Marseilles, or to the other major Spanish ports. The major piracy of the time was “Slave” related, using pure force when trading. You can just imagine the dynamics, the foreign paid armies, professional tradesmen, noble men pursuing their path of Justice, all became an official channel of this amazing “export”against the Slavs whose religion (Bosnians practising Bogumil, heretic Slavs, Shizmatic Slavs) was at the time legally punishable by burning.

For your further research, Bogomil (Cyrillic: Богомил, also Bogumił in Polish, Bohumil in Czech and Slovak) is a Bulgarian given name composed of the Slavic words 'bog' (god) and 'mil' (dear) and means 'Dear to God'. The sound change of 'g' > 'h' occurred in Ukrainian, Belarusian, Czech and Slovak.

Similar names include Latin Amadeus, Greek Theophil and German Gottlieb.

The name refers to: Bogomil (priest), medieval Bulgarian monk, founder of the Gnostic sect known as Bogomilism, or Saint Bogumilus who died in 1182.

The export to the west had a huge follow-up...

Very similar dynamics we later find with the export of black slaves to the New World Territories.

Her imaginary coffee shop was the major Historical mixing pot for the 16th and 17th century philosophers and artists, allowing the progressive researchers of the East and West to share knowledge.
