Monkey Sharpens Rock & Uses It To Smash Through Glass Enclosure At Zoo

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    At a zoo in China, a monkey uses a rock to smash its glass enclosure in what appears to be an attempted escape.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we treating animals on this planet in a way that we would want to be treated? If not, why? How does it feel to know we impede on the freedoms of living beings on a mass scale, and they don't like it?

Intriguing footage shows a Colombian white-faced capuchin at a zoo in China using a rock to smash through a glass enclosure in what appears to look like an attempted escape. The incident took place at the Zhengzhou Zoo in Central China’s Henan Province on the 20th of August 2019. Was it an actual escape? It’s hard to say, the monkey was surely surprised by the shattering of the glass, but why else would they be doing this if getting out wasn’t on their mind? Something to ponder.

In the video below you can see the monkey next to the glass, with a rock in its hand,  examining the glass before hitting it multiple times with a rock before finally shattering it.

According to Metro UK,  a bystander by the name of Mr. Wang told reporters that the monkey was actually sharpening the stone prior to hitting the glass. If this is the case, the attempted escape idea becomes much more likely.

‘The monkey was sharpening the stone, then it started hitting it on the glass. The monkey scared itself away, but it came back to take another look and even touched it,” Mr. Wang said.

Zhengzhou Zoo staff member Tian Shuliao said that this monkey actually knows how to use tools.

“This monkey is unlike other monkeys. This one knows how to use tools to break walnuts. When we feed walnuts to other monkeys, they only know to bite it. But it had never hit the glass before though. This is the first time. It’s toughened glass, so it would never have got out,[…]After it happened, we picked up all the rocks and took away all its ‘weapons’,” Shuliao said.

Monkey begins hitting the glass with a rock.

Glass is now smashed as a result of multiple hits with a rock.

Why it matters: If this monkey is indeed attempting to escape, perhaps it doesn’t want to be in captivity. There are certainly times when humans intervene in nature to help animals who are hurt or cannot survive in the wild. Providing them with humane and expansive natural, yet safe, environments to live in can be helpful. But how often is this really the case when so much of what we do to animals is abuse and murder?

Perhaps humanity is at a time where we must reflect on whether using animals or entertainment and profit is not in alignment with a heart centred humanity.

The conscious takeaway: When it comes to the CE Protocol, looking at step 4, Living Aligned, is key because it points to being connecting with our true authentic self, beyond programmings of societal norms, but instead focused and being from a space of the heart. In this space and state of being, we are living from our authentic self and make decisions from that state of being.

From that space, how do we feel about animal captivity and the way we treat animals? This isn’t a question of belief systems, rather it’s a matter of first getting connected with your true authentic self and asking yourself how you truly wish to act in relation to animals and nature. This is why our focus is on the protocol and using the 5 Days of You Challenge to learn connection. It’s through this practice that truths and decisions become self-evident, not based on what someone else tells you or what you have to believe.

Julian Assange Has Been Subjected To Torture & Violations Of Due Process Rights – UN

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A team on behalf of the UN has determined that Julian Assange has been subjected to psychological torture and has not received due process. Corporate media is ignoring the story completely.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are we not hearing the truth about one of humanity's most important and prolific whistleblowers? Is it because what he reveals hurts the global elite?

According to UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer, WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange has been subjected to “psychological torture” and his due process rights have been “systematically violated” by all the states involved in his incarceration. Melzer went to see Assange at Belmarsh prison in the UK on October 15th, 2019 with two medical experts, the trio determined that Assange had been exposed to a prolonged period of psychological torture.

Melzer presented his findings at the New York headquarters of the UN yesterday, and yet virtually no one in media showed as only a handful of reporters were there to hear the update about one of the most prolific whistleblowers in human history. Worthy to reflect on a possible media gag order that’s for sure.

“We came to the conclusion that he had been exposed to psychological torture for a prolonged period of time. That’s a medical assessment.” – Nils Melzer

Melzer has tried in the past to call attention to what’s happening to Assange. He wrote an opinion piece in June, yet it was also ignored or rejected by mainstream media outlets. As we often say here at CE, why is the public only ever informed on things that benefit the government or globalist agendas?

“We asked for all the involved states to investigate this case and to alleviate the pressure that has been done on him, and especially to respect his due process rights, which in my view have been systematically violated in all these jurisdictions.” – Nils Melzer

Assange has stayed in prison at Belmarsh passed his September 22, 2019 release date as a judge felt it was necessary to keep him until his February 2020 US extradition hearing takes place. If charged in the US, Assange faces 175 years in prison – for doing the right thing and exposing the crimes of the elite.

Why it matters: Assange has never broken any laws or done anything that caused harm to anyone. This hasn’t exactly been the mainstream narrative however, as the media and politicians have tried to oust Assange for his exposures of government, elite and globalists around the world.

This is important because both media and politicians’ coverage of Assange’s story reveal the attempts to distract people from what information he has brought forth and what implications it has on society. Point blank, Assange’s WikiLeaks has revealed enough to the public about the wrongdoings of their government that there should be no faith in government, yet in a society that is largely shaped by public opinion, and when media controls public opinion, these secrets stay safe, even when they become public.

The conscious takeaway: Why are there truly such great efforts to silence someone who exposes the wrongdoings of the elite? Why should we not know about these things? This story links greatly to step 1 of the CE Protocol called Breaking The Illusion. We have to begin to realize that our world does not function the way media and politicians claim they do, and when whistleblowers like Assange come forward showing us that evidently, we must pay attention and not fall back into the manipulation of the media, calling Assange a terrorist or threat to national security. These are simply cover stories. You can learn more about the protocol here, it’s how we structure all of our CE news and video content on CETV.

Why should we wholeheartedly take part in a system and process where we are being manipulated to not see the truth? Do we truly want to stay unconscious in this way? Is it going to lead to a world where we can thrive? This all starts with breaking that illusion and realizing something has to change. From there, the rest of the protocol continues, but turning a blind eye to stories like this only furthers the suffering humanity is experiencing.

Game Of Throne’s Sophie Turner Pokes Fun At ‘Influencers’ In Recent Instagram Story

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Sophie Turner, Game of Thrones star, took to Instagram just last week to express her perspective on social media 'influencers' and the products they promote.

  • Reflect On:

    As we are virtually being sold something every time we look at our screens, it's important to note that even some of the people we follow on social media play their part in pushing not-so-amazing products to the masses.

Sophie Turner took to Instagram on Monday, October the 7th to poke fun at (and bring light to) social media influencer marketing. The ‘Game of Thrones‘ star went on her stories and shared a silly but message-driven video while wearing a typical ‘influencer look.’

“Hey you guys, just kind of going for my influencer look today,” Turner said in her Instagram video.

“Today I just wanted to promote this new powdered stuff that you put in your tea, and basically it makes you s**t your brains out,” she said.

“(It) is totally really really bad for me to be promoting to young women and young people everywhere but I don’t really give a f**k because I’m getting paid money for it,” she added with a fake laugh.

She ended the video by throwing up a peace with grey gloved fingers and stating, ‘Influencer life.’

Why it matters: The more aware we are of the constant outpour and push of products that are not good for us, the more conscious we can be of said influencer tactics. The truth of the matter is, influencers and celebrities get paid lucratively for helping push (usually) toxic products to the masses. Whether it is the latest powder to get you to lose weight or make-up filled with harmful ingredients – we see it all and most of the time are sold on the idea that they (influencers & celebrities alike) actually use these products to attain their looks or physiques.

Conscious takeaway: It all comes down to being a grounded individual rooted in truth. When we see the latest and greatest craze going around, we should think to ourselves, ‘what is my reason behind wanting this product or lifestyle? Does it serve my highest good, or does it feed my ego?’

With more and more of our reality being curated by those of influence, it is crucial that we become more conscious of what we view, follow or believe, and more importantly why. ‘Keeping up with the Joneses’ has become ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians,’ and while we seek the unattainable we must tune in, within, to really understand what it is we are searching for. It is in our moments of deep reflection that we find what we have been looking for is there, within – genuine peace and gratitude for who we are, what we have and how we are naturally becoming all we have ever wished to be – without need for the external or material to create that peace.

That said, we can reflect on step 1 of the CE Protocol, Breaking The Illusion and also step 3 and 4, Deprogramming Limits and Living Aligned. These steps refer to getting clear on how our world truly functions, deprogramming the limits that we accept and believe about how we must act in our world, and then learning to align and tap into our true authentic self and live through this state of being. You can learn more about the protocol here, it’s how we structure all of our CE news and video content on CETV.
