“Cry, Heart, But Never Break”: A Remarkable Meditation on Loss and Life

Published

on

There seems to be an overwhelmingly dark energy surrounding the concept of death because society teaches us that it represents “goodbye.” In reality, when a loved one dies, our souls aren’t saying goodbye to each other, but rather, “See you soon.” Even though death may represent our final chapter on Earth, our souls continue on and will eventually reunite. We are all fundamentally connected to one another, so in a way, we never really leave one another.

Part of the human experience includes our emotional bodies. We have a full range of emotions on a very broad spectrum and often times, when dealing with loss or grief, we cast our emotions aside. By not allowing our emotions to pass through us, they imprint on our hearts, which in Sanskrit is called a “Samskara.” This imprint, or Samskara, creates an emotional blockage, which prevents us from enjoying the joys in life because life is always competing with that emotional block or event. A crucial part in accepting death and saying “see you soon” to another soul is to accept our emotions. This can be difficult for adults to understand, let alone to try to explain to children. Thankfully, the following books can help children and adults alike to accept life and death, as they illustrate the beauty in these counterparts.

Cry, Heart, But Never Break by Glenn Ringtved

Inspired by his own experience in trying to explain his mother’s death to his children, Danish Author Glenn Ringtved wrote this enchanting tale, teaching us the importance of accepting death and the beauty in duality. The title Cry, Heart, But Never Break was actually a phrase his mother said, emphasizing that we can feel our emotions without our world crashing down.

The story starts with Death entering into the home of a dying woman and her four grandchildren. It’s clear that Death has come for the older woman, but in an effort to not frighten the kids, Death leaves its scythe by the door, showing that Death isn’t this dark energy we often perceive it to be. The children quickly realize what’s happening, so they continuously pour Death cups of coffee, trying to stall the inevitable. They sit around the table drinking coffee together, a clear display of the normalcy in Death and how natural it is.

One of the children asks Death, “Why does Grandma have to die?”

In response, Death tells a story of four children, Sorrow and Grief, who lived life sadly and slowly, and Joy and Delight, who lived life happily but felt something was missing because they couldn’t fully enjoy their happiness. Once the couples finally met, they fell in love because they are perfect counterparts, Sorrow and Joy, and Grief and Delight.

Death explains, “It is the same with life and death… What would life be worth if there were no death? Who would enjoy the sun if it never rained? Who would yearn for the day if there were no night?”

The book reads, “Some people say Death’s heart is as dead and black as a piece of coal, but that is not true. Beneath his inky cloak, Death’s heart is as red as the most beautiful sunset and beats with a great love of life.”

The book ends by Death taking the grandmother and the children experience a moment of immense sadness, and then a wave of peacefulness washes over them. They accept Death and, in a way, come to appreciate it, a lesson we could all find value in learning.

The Little Soul and The Sun by Neale Donald Walsch

What is essentially Walsch’s infamous novel Conversations With God transformed into a heart-warming short story, The Little Soul and The Sun explores reincarnation, duality, oneness, and the beauty in finding lessons within every experience.

The story starts off with a dialogue between a very young soul and God. The Little Soul is curious about its identity and even though it knows it is The Light, it wants to experience what it’s like to feel light. God compares the Little Soul to a candle that is one of millions that lights up the Sun, and without the Little Soul’s bright candlelight, the Sun wouldn’t be the Sun.

To satisfy the Little Soul’s curiosity, God creates darkness. God tells the Little Soul not to fear darkness because ultimately, it is an illusion, that which we are not. Since the Little Soul can’t remember ever experiencing darkness, God explains, “It is a great gift, because without it, you could not know what anything is like. You could not know Warm without Cold, Up without Down, Fast without Slow.”

The Little Soul decides that in order to satisfy its desire to feel The Light, it needs to experience forgiveness; however, it has nothing to forgive. God explains that everything in creation is perfect, there is not one soul that’s better or worse than another because they are all equal in their perfection.

A crowd of souls gather around to listen to their conversation. Then, the Friendly Soul emerges from the crowd and volunteers to come into the Little Soul’s next lifetime to give it something to forgive. However, the Little Soul is confused as to why the Friendly Soul would voluntarily become “dark and dense.”

The Friendly Soul responds, “Because I love you… you have done the same thing for me. Don’t you remember? Oh, we have danced together, you and I, many times. Through the eons and across all the ages have we danced. Across all time and in many places have we played together. You just don’t remember.”

In return, the Friendly Soul asks for a favour, requesting the Little Soul to remember who the Friendly Soul really is, a beacon of light and love. In the moment that the Friendly Soul does something perceivably unforgivable, the Friendly Soul will have been pretending so hard that it will forget what it truly is. The Friendly Soul asks the Little Soul to remind it of its inner beauty, The Light.

The story ends with God smiling at the two souls and saying, “Always remember, I have sent you nothing but angels.” This tale is a beautiful reminder of what we truly are; The Light. We are all the same and duality is merely an illusion, one that can teach us invaluable lessons.

The Heart and the Bottle by Oliver Jeffers

Jeffers spins a thought provoking tale we can all relate to. The Heart and the Bottle illustrates how many of us bottle up our emotions instead of facing them head on, ultimately preventing us from truly experiencing and embracing the ups and downs in life.

The story starts off by giving us a glimpse into the relationship between a father and his daughter. The father inspires the young girl by educating her on the wonders of the world and all it has to offer, spiking her curiosity and thirst for knowledge. However, one day the father disappears from the picture, and the weight on the little girl’s heart becomes too much to bear. Instead of grieving the loss of her father, she removes her heart from her chest and places it in a bottle for safe keeping.

At first, this fixes things, but she eventually realizes that by locking away her deepest pain, she in turn locked away her ability to feel other extremities such as love and happiness as well. It’s not until she enters into adulthood that she is reminded of her once curious Self. As she watches another little girl curiously explore the beach, something her and her father used to do, that same curiosity she once had ignites within her.

She decides to set out on a journey to free her heart, but she learns that the more time passed, the more difficult it became for her heart to escape the bottle. As fate would have it, she reconnects with that same little girl she once saw playing in the sand, who helps her unleash her heart from its confinement.

Whether this little girl was her inner child waiting to be healed or an actual human being, this story still sheds light on the emotional traumas many of us experience in childhood, which we then carry with us into adulthood. This tale also reflects how common it is for people to bottle up their emotions. Many of us don’t realize that by failing to acknowledge the “downs” in life, we cannot truly enjoy the “ups.”

Final Thoughts

Society has a tendency to talk down to children because we assume they can’t handle real emotions. This teaches children that emotions are somehow scary and that they shouldn’t feel them to their fullest extent. We even shame each other for our emotions, encouraging people not to cry or get overly excited.

You can articulate the truth compassionately to children without hiding the gravity of a situation. If you’re struggling with how to do so, I suggest reading these books to your children. Even though you’ll find them in the Children’s section of a book store, I guarantee you will learn just as much from these books as any child would!

“If you are protected from dark things then you have no protection of, knowledge of, or understanding of dark things when they show up.” – Neil Gaiman, Author

Video: The Most Significant Leak About Extraterrestrial Craft Just Went Public

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A recently leaked document has exposed notes taken by legendary scientist Dr. Eric Davis during a meeting he had Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson, who was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, regarding extraterrestrial space craft.

  • Reflect On:

    UFOs used to be a conspiracy, now they are quite mainstream and their existence is backed by tremendous amounts of evidence. The next question is, where are they from, and who made them? Will this information be suppressed too?

A quote I love to use in many of my articles comes from Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell. He said, “yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered.” (source)

The thought that governments and/or rogue agencies around the world have been involved in taking down and even possibly revere engineering possible extraterrestrial craft is nothing new. Available to the public are statements from the highest ranking positions within government and the military, and there are also declassified documents that hint toward the same idea.

For example, former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer once told the public that the protocol with regards to UFOs was to “shoot first and ask questions after.” Dr. David Clarke, an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in England who was also the curator for The National Archives UFO project from 2008–13 uncovered documents showing that the Royal Air Force was desperate to capture one of these UFOs and reverse engineer it. You can see those and read more about it here.

Most Significant Leak?

Check out our video segment on this new leak, or read more below.

More recently, what some are calling the most significant leak in UFO history has been made public – and it may be one of the strongest documents linking UFOs to extraterrestrials.

The document goes into detail about a meeting that was had between Dr. Eric Davis, and Vice Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson. Who is Eric Davis? He is a very well known scientist, and quite the legend. For many years he was a member of the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (NIDS)(Owned by Robert Bigelow), the Chief Science Officer of EarthTech Int’l, Inc. and the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin in Austin, Texas; and he is the Owner/Chief Executive/Chief Scientist of Warp Drive Metrics who consults and contracts for the Department of Defense. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Early Universe, Cosmology and Strings Group at the Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics & Engineering Research at Baylor University in Waco, TX.

Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from July 1999 to July 2002, prior to that he was the Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The document is in the form of notes that were written by Davis after their meeting that took place in 2002, regarding a series of events that took place during the spring of 1997, when Wilson was Deputy Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Since the leak of this document, there has been no denial publicly by Davis regarding the authenticity of these documents, and the focal point of the document is about a meeting (and what happened after that meeting) that took place in 1997 between UFO researcher Dr. Steven Greer, Admiral Wilson, Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14 astronaut) and other high ranking individuals within the military. This meeting was spoken about by Dr. Greer and Dr. Mitchell nearly four years prior to the leak of these documents, so it’s all very interesting. In the episode, we actually play footage of Mitchell confirming and talking about this meeting as well as Greer.

The documents point towards a program that involves the crash retrieval of extraterrestrial craft, that are “not made of this earth, not made by man.”

You can view the entire document here.

if you missed the video embed above of myself and Joe Martino having a discussion about these documents in detail, you can watch it here.

The Takeaway

“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations.” – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

The fact that we are not alone has huge implications from science to technology, to history and possible metaphysical/spiritual implications as well. It really opens up Pandora’s Box, and it is one out of many examples that are allowing us to see how humanity has been conditioned to think a certain way, limit our reality, despite all of the evidence, that conflicts with long held belief systems.

At the end of the day, the idea that there are other highly advanced, intelligent lifeforms in the universe, or multiverse, and possibly other dimensions that are and have been visiting our planet, and others, for a very long time is most likely just the very tip of the ice-berg.

This is not a new discovery. We have had this type of knowledge of UFOs and ETs for a very long time, culture and elites have simply suppressed this knowing.

British Home Secretary Has Signed Extradition Order To Send Julian Assange To US

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    British home secretary Sajid Javid has signed the extradition order to send Julian Assange to the US. This now leaves the final decision to the courts. It's likely that the extradition decision process will take many months to decide in court.

  • Reflect On:

    Is this another step in harming the freedom of press? The freedom of revealing truth to citizens? Is this government overreach whereby they feel it's OK to pretend to the public that their knowledge of truth is not important?

The British home secretary, Sajid Javid, has just signed a request for Julian Assange to be extradited to the US where he faces an 18-count indictment, issued by the US Department of Justice, for charges linked to computer hacking and revealing government secrets in collaboration with Chelsea Manning, formerly Bradley Manning. The charges all fall under the Espionage Act.

“He’s rightly behind bars. There’s an extradition request from the US that is before the courts tomorrow but yesterday I signed the extradition order and certified it and that will be going in front of the courts tomorrow.” – Sayid Javid

Officially, Assange is accused of soliciting and publishing classified information and conspiring to hack into a government computer. “It is a decision ultimately for the courts, but there is a very important part of it for the home secretary and I want to see justice done at all times and we’ve got a legitimate extradition request, so I’ve signed it, but the final decision is now with the courts,” said Javid.

If you were to look entirely at the law, you might say “yes, technically if he did these things, there is a case to be made.” However, was Assange involved enough in this process to prosecute him? Did he do something that was a disservice to the people? Or did he do something that was a disservice to the powerful elite?

That is something for you to decide, ideally without the manipulative rhetoric from the powerful elite and the mainstream media they own. Attempts to suggest he threatens the patriotism of the US and the national security of the US might be something to observe as a clear sign of bait and switch: get upset at this, instead of looking at what he revealed about the powerful elite in the totality of the leaks he has put out.

Swedish courts had just recently rejected an extradition request for Assange to be sent back to Sweden for an alleged rape case dating back to 2010. Assange denies the accusation and has since the beginning. The decision out of Upsalla to deny his request was fueled by the claim that Assange did not need to be detained.

Assange is currently in jail for 50 weeks for skipping bail after he spent seven years in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He was recently too ill to appear at a hearing at Westminster magistrates court in relation to the US request. The hearing has been rescheduled for Friday, June 14th, 2019.

Thomas Garner, an extradition lawyer at Gherson Solicitors, said Javid’s certification of the request was “an important though merely procedural step” to start the extradition process.

“I would expect the court to set a preliminary timetable for the extradition process tomorrow,” he said. “It is likely to be many months before any hearing at the magistrates court and of course either side may then seek to appeal that decision in due course. Despite this, the Swedish authorities will be monitoring the process carefully as the further down the line the US proceedings get the harder it might become for the home secretary to give precedence to any competing request.”

The Takeaway

From a systematic standpoint, this is a necessary procedural step in extraditing Assange to the US and it has been granted. It could have been blocked but Javid felt it was necessary for ‘justice to be served.’

As we can see, this is an example of a spot where someone could have stood up and said “no I don’t support this given what it does to protect the powerful elite and given what it does to journalism and the maintenance of secrecy.” Obviously, Javid would have faced much criticism if he had stood up, perhaps legal problems too, we were not able to confirm that, but we are seeing a system play entirely along with the power elite in this case.

In the video below, there is an important discussion on some of the ‘Qanon’ ideas in relation to Assange. My analysis on that is that it appears to be heavily misguided, but you decide for yourself.

Top Cancer Research Advisor Compares Wireless Radiation To Cigarettes

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Doctors treating patients from over-exposure to wireless radiation joined scientists at Queen's Park to recommend the Ontario Government take steps to protect public health before the roll-out of 5G – the next generation of cell phone tech.

  • Reflect On:

    How are technologies like this approved by federal health regulatory agencies without any appropriate safety testing?

It’s truly astonishing how the health concerns regarding wireless radiation, which are firmly established in scientific literature, are often ignored and not addressed within the mainstream media. Given the fact that mainstream media controls a large amount of people’s perception and awareness with regards to multiple issues, the health concerns regarding 5G are still largely off the radar on the minds of many.

We’ve seen many examples of how federal health regulatory agencies have been completely compromised by corporations, and the new 5G issue appears no different at the moment. This is how certain products and services get approved without ever really going through any appropriate safety testing.

A great example of this type of corporate corruption in the United States, for example, was outlined a few years ago by a group of more than a dozen scientists from within the CDC who put out a public statement, while remaining anonymous, outlining the big problem of corporate influence and the effect it is having on health policy decisions. They were referred to as the Spider Papers.  The authors heavily stressed just how big of a problem this truly is.

Fast Internet, But Huge Health Risks

One of my latest articles on the subject of 5G brought to light a report published by Martin L. Pall, a PhD and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, who stated that “Putting in tens of millions of 5G antennae without a single biological test of safety has got to be about the stupidest idea anyone has had in the history of the world.”

These health concerns are exactly why a Belgian government minister announced that Brussels is halting its 5G plans. Even before the 5G rollout, multiple countries banned Wifi & Cell Phones around schools, young children & fetuses.

With so much information and initiatives out there being created, it really goes to show that we do no live in a democracy at all. Various “things” are imposed on the populace without our knowing, and politicians never address the real concerns that the people have. Take Donald Trump for example, who recently stated that “5G is a race we will win.” On CETV we analyzed why Trump is pushing so hard for 5G, you can watch the segment here. I also recently wrote an article regarding Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau and 5G, where he also completely ignores the well known health concerns.

The truth is, doctors have been treating patients from over-exposure to wireless radiation for a while, despite the fact that many out there still, unfortunately, believe it to be a mental condition, which is misguided given all of the published science and clear harm that’s being inflicted. Scientists and doctors recently came together at Queen’s park in Toronto, Ontario, urging the provincial government to take steps to protect public health before the roll out of wireless 5G – the next generation of cell phone technology. That being said, 5G tech is already rolled out, a lot of people are using it for their internet connection, for example.

You can watch the full hearing below.

“My clinic is already assessing patients from across Ontario who are sensitive to microwave radiation from their wireless devices including cell phones, Wi-Fi, and an increasing number of smart appliances,” said Dr. Riina Bray, Medical Director of the Environmental Health Clinic at Women’s College Hospital in Toronto. “We expect wireless 5G to add to this burden.”

Scientists and doctors from dozens of countries are now coming together to warn their governments about what is going on. The only issue is that governments have been compromised by corporations, but awareness is still charging ahead. The initial 5G infrastructure in Ontario is set to begin in the Toronto to Montreal corridor. Without this implementation, daily human exposure to microwave radiation is already much higher than a trillion times higher than it was before cell phones.

Dr. Anthony Miller, Professor Emeritus with the University of Toronto, and adviser to the International Agency for Research on Cancer said: “Many scientists worldwide now believe that radiofrequency radiation should be elevated to a Class One human carcinogen, on the same list as Cigarettes, X-Rays, and Asbestos.”

The doctors advised the province that increased health care costs can be avoided if the government takes precautions to protect the public from exposure to wireless 5G technology.

You can get a transcript of the event and more at Canadians for Safe Technology C4ST.org http://c4st.org/ontario-doctors-warn-of-rising-health-care-costs-after-5g-roll-out/

As always, if you want to find out more information and science about this subject, as well as ways you can reduce our exposure and protect yourself, a great place to start is with the Environmental Health Trust.

The Takeaway

I am a big believer in the mind-body connection, some say it’s simple as, “if you don’t believe it’s harming you, it’s not.” Although that thought does have truth in it, I believe that type of mind-body effect, the ability to alter your own biology amidst environmental toxins, requires deep meditation and practice. We are so heavily bombarded with this stuff regularly that it’s simply not reasonable to overcome these effects while keeping up with daily life.

This why when highly skilled mind-body practitioners are used by scientists in the lab, still only small effects are observed. At the end of the day, there is a reason why various rates of disease ailments are on the rise, and it’s quite clear that our environment is the problem.

Again, you can protect yourself, your home by reducing your exposure. You can even purchase EMF protective paint, there are a number of ways to protect yourself but at the end of the day this is a big problem, and awareness is key. In an age of extreme censorship and a lack of coverage by mainstream media on the most important issues on our planet, it’s up to us to continue speaking up, and doing so in a credible way.
