Pope Francis Gives A Surprise TED Talk Calling For A “Revolution Of Tenderness”

Published

on

Pope Francis has been featured in a lot of headlines lately, as he’s become a popular beacon of light for many non-Christians because he preaches equality and kindness, offering a very different (and frankly more compassionate) perspective than previous Popes. This has caused some confusion, given that the Vatican is perceived negatively by man due to its ties to sexual abuse, inequality, knowledge suppression, and more.

Nevertheless, Pope Francis has an important message for us all, which is that we need a “revolution of tenderness.” This time around, his message came by way of a surprise video that aired at the international TED conference Tuesday evening. Pope Francis delivered this message in front of a room full of scientists, academics, tech innovators, investors, and cultural elites.

Pope Francis’ TED Talk on Tenderness and Hope

The Pope started off the TED Talk by explaining our deep connection to one another, stating, “Each and everyone’s existence is deeply tied to that of others: life is not time merely passing by, life is about interactions.”

“As I meet, or lend an ear to those who are sick, to the migrants who face terrible hardships in search of a brighter future, to prison inmates who carry a hell of pain inside their hearts, and to those, many of them young, who cannot find a job, I often find myself wondering: ‘Why them and not me?’ ” he continued.

This is a question many of us face: Why are we so blessed while so many people suffer? There are so many extremities in this dualistic world we live in, and it can be easy to get caught up in them. Of course, there are many explanations like soul contracts, karmic relations, past lifetimes, or simply unfortunate circumstance, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t fight for equality.

“We all need each other, none of us is an island, an autonomous and independent ‘I’ separated from the other, and we can only build the future by standing together, including everyone.”

“We don’t think about it often, but everything is connected, and we need to restore our connections to a healthy state.”

Pope Francis even brings science into the equation, just as many other prominent religious figures and monks have in the past. “Even science – and you know it better than I do – points to an understanding of reality as a place where every element connects and interacts with everything else,” he explains.

The fact that everything is connected has been proven time and time again in quantum physics; even the Dalai Lama has expressed this. You can read more about how science and spirituality are intertwined here.

“How wonderful would it be if the growth of scientific and technological innovation would come along with more equality and social inclusion. How wonderful would it be, while we discover faraway planets, to rediscover the needs of the brothers and sisters orbiting around us?” the Pope continued.

The Pope could simply be referring to the brothers and sisters we have residing on this planet, though his question seems to be addressing extraterrestrial (ET) life and how we’d treat them. This wouldn’t be the first time the Vatican has hinted at the existence of ETs, and Pope Francis himself has spoken about “beings of the universe.” You can read more about the link between the Vatican and ETs here and here.

The Pope goes on to speak of solidarity and how we need to achieve it. We cannot just look at it in terms of social responsibility, but rather as the basis and the underlying framework for politics, economics, and our everyday interactions. Would there even be a need for a singular government if solidarity existed?

The Pope continues to say that through true solidarity, we could actually overcome our “disposable” attitudes toward food, the environment, and each other. He explains that solidarity cannot just be achieved through control mechanisms, nor can it be taught, but rather, it must be found within the heart.

“Love is the source and the meaning of life, how can they withhold their urge to do good to another fellow being?” he asks.

Throughout his speech, Pope Francis continually highlights the importance of memory when discussing how we can reconnect to solidarity and love, as we just need to trigger ourselves to remember the inherent love within us.

Perhaps the most interesting part of his talk was when he told the Parable of the Good Samaritan. As the story goes, a man who was beaten and robbed was left on the streets to suffer. A Priest and a Levite, two influential people at the time, walked by the man without offering to help; but, when a Samaritan walked by, an ethnicity that used to be looked down upon, he felt compassion for this man and stopped to help him. Jesus allegedly used this parable to explain to people that being a good person means you have compassion for all, regardless of your status.

Many people who follow Christianity choose to only abide by the staunch commandments and old belief systems taught by the religion, further perpetuating separatism, racism, and inequality. This often includes the people who are considered to be at the top of the chain like popes and priests. It’s fascinating that the Pope chose to mention this parable, as it paints a more negative light upon the “higher members” of the Christian faith.

“Each and every one of us can become a bright candle, a reminder that light will overcome darkness, and never the other way around,” Pope Francis continues.

“Feeling hopeful does not mean to be optimistically naïve and ignore the tragedy humanity is facing. Hope is the virtue of a heart that doesn’t lock itself into darkness, that doesn’t dwell on the past, does not simply get by in the present, but is able to see a tomorrow.”

The New Age movement, Buddhism, and other spiritual texts often encourage only focusing on the present, which is beautiful. Ultimately, once you realize that time is an illusion, the present moment is really all that is. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t learn from your past nor does it mean you can’t visualize the future and shouldn’t strive to create a better one for yourself and all of humanity. Part of focusing on the present moment includes creating your own reality and redefining your future, because the present affects the future, just as the past affects the present, because time is non-linear!

The third part of the Pope’s speech addressed the need for what he calls “a revolution of tenderness,” which is essentially a strong form of compassion and love for all. He describes a variety of examples of tenderness, including when a parent adapts their speech to talk to young children. They essentially lower their communication level in order to explain concepts to them.

Though I do believe that children deserve more honest communication when it comes to dealing with more difficult topics, I think that his definition of tenderness speaks to the importance of being able to accept all levels of consciousness and learning to guide people without belittling them. That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t strive to educate people, but rather that we can do so with more compassion and understanding. Tenderness can be used as a tool to create positive change in a more loving, peaceful manner.

Final Thoughts 

It’s no secret that the Vatican has a dark past, one that’s filled with sex scandals, secrecy, and other crimes. In fact, the Vatican has paid approximately $4 billion to settle child molestation cases, and these are only the publicly known incidents. For years, children have suffered at the hands of child predators who remain safe in the authority of the Christian faith. So, if you’re skeptical of Pope Francis’ words, that’s completely understandable.

However, it’s important to remember that change can come from within, meaning he could represent the shift we want to see within the Vatican. Yes, his words could be a PR stunt, but they could also be genuine and honest. Either way, he’s clearly inspiring people to be more compassionate and kind to others, which is beautiful!

The “Unmasking Antifa Act Of 2018”: The Nonsense Never Ends

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A bill has recently been submitted to Congress that specifically targets groups of people wearing masks who are preventing others from exercising their constitutional rights.

  • Reflect On:

    Can we see how much of what the government is doing with regards to violent protests and counter-protests is complicit with the way these protests are being used to prevent us from dealing effectively with the real issues?

Last year, in an attempt to condemn the ‘violence and domestic terrorism’ that took place during events between August 11 and August 12, 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Senate tabled the ‘Charlottesville Resolution’ whose main purpose was ‘rejecting White nationalists, White supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups, and urging the President and the President’s Cabinet to use all available resources to address the threats posed by those groups.’

Wow. Those Senators are really earning their salaries, aren’t they? Bravo–they’ve given the government more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.

Unmasking Antifa

Now this year, in an attempt to stem the rising violence perpetrated by the group called Antifa, Congress introduced Bill H. R. 6054:

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018’’.

SEC. 2. INTERFERENCE WITH PROTECTED RIGHTS WHILE IN DISGUISE.

(a) IN GENERAL.—Chapter 13 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by inserting after section 249 the following:

‘‘§ 250. Interference with protected rights while in  disguise

‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, while in disguise, including while wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both.

Wow. They’re really getting to the heart of the matter here, aren’t they?–the masks. Granted, threatening the ‘free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to <any person> by the Constitution’ was already a punishable crime, even without a mask, but let’s not let that get in the way. The government should be congratulated for their accomplishment here, which again is doing nothing except giving themselves more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.

Who Supports These Groups?

I personally don’t know of anyone who supports White Nationalists, White Supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, or other hate groups. I also don’t know anyone who supports Antifa.

To be perfectly honest, I’m not even sure if many of the people that go out to protest and counter-protest in public are necessarily ardent supporters of their respective group’s fundamental ideologies. I believe many are paid mercenaries. Others may be looking for an opportunity to vent their own suppressed anger.

Can We Ignore Them?

Ideally, we should be completely ignoring violent groups with such extremist ideologies. But there is a reason we have a hard time doing so. It is because it is these groups that get to star in the mainstream media circus and in the political discourse, at the exclusion of the vast majority of citizens who are moderate, reasonable, and have legitimate grievances. Isn’t it farcical that we are still talking about the Ku Klux Klan? That they still exist?

There is a reason that groups like the KKK seem to be getting recycled from the dustbin of history, at the same time newer extremist movements like Antifa are being well-funded and supported: their violent confrontations continue to be used by the financial elite as a smoke screen to grab our attention and fill the headlines, all while discouraging the moderate and reasonable majority from actually speaking up in public about the real issues that face us today, about the real and obvious tyranny the financial elite continue to perpetuate.

Embers Of Fear Dying Out

For the financial elite, the agenda itself is irrelevant; as long as violence, chaos, and polarization are created, they are able to keep their game going and hold on to power. But it’s getting harder and harder for them to stoke the fires of fear and violence, as they need to infuse more energy and resources than ever to bring these events together.

As we awaken and evolve, more and more of the population is turning away from angry and violent opposition as a way of dealing with issues. It’s important that we remain conscious and avoid the temptation to participate in the false left/right dichotomy that is constantly on display in the political arena and in the mainstream media. As we see these violent confrontations fundamentally as staged events, and stop giving our emotional energy to one side or other of the polarity, these techniques will no longer have their intended effect, and we can look forward to the day that they will have eventually petered out.

Newly Discovered Crop Circle Has A Message For Humanity (July 2018)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new crop circle was recently discovered in the UK on July 8th, 2018. It was the exact depiction of the chemical weapons warning symbol.

  • Reflect On:

    Does this serve as a message for us to put down the chemical and nuclear weapons for good? Do we need to be using these weapons? This may also cause us to consider the poisoning of our planet in other ways.

A new crop circle was recently discovered on July 8th in Coneybury Hill, Nr Stonehenge, Wiltshire. This circle is the exact same as the chemical weapons warning symbol.

Interestingly this crop circle was found shortly after the death of Dawn Sturgess who had come into contact with a deadly nerve agent.

While we can’t know for sure, this crop circle certainly appears to be a message to humanity about the dangers of chemical weapons and the catastrophic damage they can cause, regardless of who you believe made it. Perhaps this circle symbolizes the fact that these weapons have no place in our world, and it’s time we got rid of them, for good.

Check out some amazing drone footage of this newly discovered crop circle below.

ET Intervention?

It is not all that surprising to see this message show up in a crop circle, as in the past we have seen deliberate ET intervention when nuclear weapons would have otherwise been used. We have covered this topic before, and the following is an excerpt from an older article,

One of many previously classified reports -out of the thousands in existence -that is now available in the public domain is the intrusion at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, on August 24, 1966. Air Force personnel were concerned about a light in the sky. A team went to check it out and confirmed the object, then saw a second white object while doing so. The object was tracked on radar and moved vertical several times; each time it descended, an air force officer in charge of a missile crew found his radio transmission interrupted by static. The object eventually descended to ground level, and the Air Force sent a team to check it out. They saw the object either on the ground or hovering very low. According to the official report:

“When the team was about ten miles from the landing site, static disrupted radio contact with them. Five to eight minutes later, the glow diminished, and the UFO took off. Another UFO was visually sighted and confirmed by radar. The one that was first sighted passed beneath the second. Radar also confirmed this. The first made for altitude toward the north, and the second seemed to disappear with the glow of red.”

Here are a couple of more articles that go into greater detail regarding the connections between UFO’s and nuclear missiles:

“The United States Tried To Detonate A Nuclear Weapon On The Moon & Somebody Responded When We Did”

“Strong Evidence Shows Extraterrestrials Have Been Shutting Down Nuclear Missiles Worldwide For Decades, But Why”

Why Are They Stopping Nukes?

It seems that these extraterrestrials know just how damaging nuclear weapons can be to our planet, and possibly to our entire solar system. There is information that says that UFO’s have been deactivating nuclear weapons since we created them and started to show up a lot more often when we were testing the atomic bomb. Thankfully, someone or something has our back and is helping to stop us, humanity from making a huge mistake.

The Deep Truth Behind Why Trump Is President

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Since Trump's presidency, we have seen many of humanities shadows thrust into conversation. Not just shadows of Trump, but each and every one of us. The media has been aggressively opposing Trump almost all the way through.

  • Reflect On:

    What is Trump's presidency showing us about ourselves? Why are we seeing a full out media attack on Trump? Is the cabal losing power? Are we beginning to see the first stages of big shifts away from oppressive regimes?

A little backstory before we get into the video below. Back in 2016, following the election, we had stated that there seemed to be a pretty large shift in power given that Trump made his way into office. How did this happen? Here is a brief outline.

There is a divide taking place within the Cabal/Deep State. This divide is causing power struggles as some facets work to move away from the entirely destructive means of the previous many decades, and instead work towards a different path. Is this an entirely ‘good’ path? No, but we’re going to see this as a HUGE welcome improvement as we continue to shift our consciousness.

This divide works its way through intelligence agencies whereby ‘white hats,’ as you can call them, begin to bring forth leaks, information and dealings that help break apart the extremely oppressive end of the cabal. White hats are essentially everyday individuals, like Snowden was, who work inside intelligence agencies and who are also having a shift in consciousness within themselves. No longer do they wish to support the ways of the old, the ways it would have been if Hillary made it into office.

So we begin to see a power struggle, one that is obviously coming as a result of having an ‘outsider’ in office that is shaking things up QUICKLY.

How Did Trump Get In?

First off, what I mentioned above is a big part of it. On top of that, was the flip in electoral college manipulation that usually takes place when a president is chosen. Was Hillary Clinton furiously angry after the election because she didn’t get enough support from the general populace? No, she was furiously angry because her side of the Cabal/Deep State, who promised her a win and bought the entire media to help make it happen, flipped in part, causing enough of a change to have Trump get in.

Now typically people tend to think that when you talk about things in this manner it means you are in favor of Republicans and Trump. But this is primitive thinking in that it only looks at one tiny layer of what’s happening to apply an explanation we can then be comfortable with. When in reality, all that is happening here is we are looking at what is ACTUALLY happening, not what we are being told what is happening.

You do not have to be pro Trump, pro Republican, or even in support of politics at all, for that matter, to see what’s truly taking place here.

Regardless, questions have been coming in for months and months to CE, asking what we think about Trump, whether we are in support of him and what all of this ‘chaos’ means. Of course, some, because we speak about things honestly and from a neutral perspective, tend to think we side with Trump because SOME of the actions of his administration and who’s behind him are actually in favor of humanity, and we report on them.

But regardless of the amount of explanation we have tried to bring to this somewhat complicated situation, I felt we needed something VERY clear. So I created a video expressing what Trump’s presidency truly means for our collective consciousness and 3 very big factors that are being brought forth through his time in office. This video will answer the topic this article is titled as.

Please take the time to watch and digest this, as it will answer so many questions regarding Trump and what is taking place.
