“I Know My Galactic Family Is Here, Do You? (UFO Disclosure)”

I like what the presenter said in the video below: “Extraterrestrial beings are peaceful evolved spiritual beings and want to share their knowledge and technologies to help us heal our planet and to help all beings thrive.”

Video information

This video has been produced and released by InLIght Radio for you to share with all your family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues – and the world – to let them know that our Galactic family is here. Keep sharing!

You can now enjoy and share this video with seventeen different language subtitles thanks to Luisa, Christoph and the Family of Light Translators (for English, use the “English” option, not the “English-transcribed” option). Turn on Captions using the symbol on the right-hand side of the bottom menu bar above left and select your language. For English subtitles, use the “English” option, not the “English-Transcribed” option which is computer generated and inaccurate.

For too long, our governments, military leaders, religious leaders and the mainstream media have hidden the truth of our galactic history and the real presence of our star brothers and sisters from us. Not any more! Our Galactic family is here – and has been since the beginning of time, and they come in peace, love and friendship to help us fix our planet and create the world we all deserve – a world of peace, pristine environments, equality on every level (racial, financial, sexual) and, importantly, love.

This video features the InLight Radio on-air team – Graham Dewyea, Steve Beckow, Geoffrey West, Linda Dillon, Dave Schmidt, Sierra Neblina and Stephen Cook – as they share their personal disclosure stories and ask you to share this video with everyone you know via your social media and online resources. We know our Galactic family is here – do you?

Possibility of highly evolved and peace-loving extraterrestrial life

I was reading up on Carl Sagan in Wikipedia the other day, and I learnt that his best-selling novel “Contact” has been made into a film in 1997. I remember that according to the news, the film was well received back then for its depth and insight about the possibility of extra-terrestrial life that is more advanced than humanity. It was also a refreshing change from the usual Hollywood alien movies that portrayed aliens as harmful and hostile to humans.

Not alone in the universe?

Recently, in view of the discoveries about the expanding universe so far and the revelation about our oneness with the universe, I am inclined to think that there is indeed a high likelihood of life existing beyond earth. Especially after watching the video “We are all connected“, I am reminded that we are not alone in this grand universe.

[Nye]
I’m this guy standing on a planet
Really I’m just a speck
Compared with a star, the planet is just another speck
To think about all of this
To think about the vast emptiness of space
There’s billions and billions of stars
Billions and billions of specks

This article suggests six reasons to ponder the possibility that we are not alone in the universe:

  • With so many stars, alien life is probable
  • Water worlds abound in our solar system
  • Life evolved ‘quickly’ on Earth
  • Life thrives in extreme environments
  • E.T. might be calling from afar
  • Some see evidence that ‘aliens’ have visited

Extraterrestrial life on the moon?

According to the video in the blog “What NASA Doesn’t Want You To Know, UFOs And Base On Dark Side Of The Moon – VIDEO – 19 December 2011“, there appear to be signs of habitation on the moon.

In the article below, Dr Edgar Mitchell said he was aware of several UFO visits during his career, but each one had been covered up.

The 77-year-old, who was a crew member of the Apollo 14 mission, said sources at the space agency had described aliens as resembling “little people who look strange to us”.

(From “Aliens exist, but NASA covers them up says astronaut“)

Extraterrestrial life more evolved and advanced than us?

I also agree with the view shared in the below article about most Hollywood-invented aliens.

“Hollywood-invented aliens are, quite frankly, an abysmal failure of imagination; they are simply a projection of how our little minds think that creatures from the stars would look like and behave toward us.

Given the 10-billion year age of our galaxy, intelligent life forms could easily be hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of years more advanced than us.”

(From “Aliens are our own projections“)

My take is that these aliens are more evolved and intelligent than us earthlings, although we are catching up in our collective evolution. I believe that they are non-violent and harmless, and have been waiting for us all to have sufficiently evolved before contacting us directly. Otherwise, they might be mistaken as enemies by humans and get attacked. They are enlightened beings, and they mean well towards us. Hence, I can agree with the perspective of Carl Sagan about extra-terrestrial life being more intelligent than humanity and have been waiting to contact us, from his novel “Contact”.

Since we human beings are also evolving in our collective consciousness, we may gradually acknowledge the presence of these extraterrestrial beings and even be able to commune with them.

Crop circles as a sign of aliens trying to contact us?

I think one possible sign of aliens trying to contact us (indirectly) is the evidence of crop circles. Whoever made these giant crop circles overnight remain a mystery, such as the examples shown in this article.

Crop circles (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

While some crop circles might have been man-made, there are other gigantic crop circles with intricate designs that seem to imply they are created by extraterrestrial beings of higher intelligence and supernatural ability.

According to astronomer Gerald Hawkins:

“many designs have a degree of complexity that humans would not be able to easily recreate on paper, let alone in a field at night. Some of the shapes of these formations are far too complex, and display a tremendously high level of precision which make it extremely difficult for a team of humans to create.”

(From “Alien Allies of Humanity“)

National Geographic also featured an article to explore crop circles about a decade ago. Since then, I think the mystery behind crop circles has been drawing attention to more and more people.

Meanwhile, here’s sharing Carl Sagan’s message in the video “Pale blue dot” about our unique home called Earth.

“Blessed are the weird people” – Jacob Nordby

“Blessed are the weird people–poets, misfits, writers, mystics…painters & troubadours–for they teach us to see the world through different eyes.”

Jacob Nordby

Yes, it’s an honour and compliment actually to be considered misfits by the society because it shows we are being true to our authentic self. Each of us is born unique, yet the society tends to favour conformity, so those who are bound by the society norms tend to lose their unique identity and authenticity. We are in the society but not of the society, and when we are true to our soul and rise above the norms and limitations of the society with our creativity and magnificence, some members of the society may get jealous and label us “weird” and “misfits”.

It’s actually a compliment, come to think of it, as it shows we have retained our originality and not lose our soul for the sake of gaining the world. We are also in good company with other pioneers, inventors and trail blazers in history such as Martin Luther King Jr, Carl Sagan, Mahatma Gandhi and Vincent Van Gogh. The society usually pays tribute to these brilliant people only long after they are gone, and that’s because the society is slow to catch up and realise their tremendous value in helping the world to think and see differently.

Having said that, we are not trying to be different and we just happen to be different in the eyes of the society when we are being true to our authentic and original self. I am aware that sometimes the society may want to encourage people to be creative by saying “dare to be different” but somehow the message may come across as saying “try to be different for the sake of being different”. I think a better way to look at it is to be our true and original self-identity. In that way, whether we end up being same or being different from other people doesn’t really matter so long as we are being true to ourselves.

In short, it is not so much about trying to be different but rather to not follow the system (or pattern or mindset) of the society (such as eating fast food/junk food, subscribing to consumerism, running the rat race, etc) and be responsible for our own well-being.

“I think the greatest people in (our) society carve niches that represent the unique expression of their combination of talent.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Words are powerful

Yes, words have the power to create or destroy a moment. I think this is because words, like thoughts, are spirit and can convey a person’s intention and emotional energies. It takes constant awareness or mindfulness for each person to choose words carefully when communicating with others in order to minister life and peace, though everyone falls short from time to time for various reasons (which is part of being human). Meditation practitioners understand the importance of words to create moments of inner peace, such as “om” or some other mantra, to help them focus and reconnect themselves to their true self and their oneness with the universe.

15-Year-Old Kelvin Doe – an encouraging and inspiring story

Video information:

15-Year-Old Kelvin Doe is an engineering whiz living in Sierra Leone who scours the trash bins for spare parts, which he uses to build batteries, generators and transmitters. Completely self-taught, Kelvin has created his own radio station where he broadcasts news and plays music under the moniker, DJ Focus.

Kelvin became the youngest person in history to be invited to the “Visiting Practitioner’s Program” at MIT. THNKR had exclusive access to Kelvin and his life-changing journey – experiencing the US for the first time, exploring incredible opportunities, contending with homesickness, and mapping out his future.

Inspirational children and teenagers such as Kelvin Doe are a testimony of how it is possible to remain relatively uncontaminated by the self-serving and limited ideologies of the society as they seek to use their creativity and curiosity about science and technology to invent and innovate to help make the world a better place and fulfil their dreams. I admire his aspiration to have a radio station for his community to debate about issues affecting his community and Sierra Leone as a whole. (It reminds me of my teenage aspiration to become a music DJ, but that’s another story, probably for another time.)

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey” ~ Paulo Coelho

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of Infinity. Life is Eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in Eternity.” ♥

~ Paulo Coelho

Here’s sharing this part of a thanksgiving prayer that I like.

“For today. . . I do my best in all things
For tomorrow . . . I honor and heal the environment
For my life… I work to be a healthy cell in the body of the Universe

I honor the journey of my life with conscious living
and honor the lives of all I meet and those I will never know.”

(From “A Prayer of Thanks“)

When we journey through life with conscious living, we may never be fully happy in good times since we are aware of the sufferings of humanity and the degradation of the environment. We can only do what we can to help and heal humanity and the environment, such as spreading awareness and avoiding consumerism wherever we can.

I also like what is said here in this blog about the sacred balance.

“As said before, we live to die. But we live to heal – spiritually – our soul heals and the souls of others heal from us; from our experiences. We share with the next generations the adverse experiences so each year our community strengthens.”

(From “The Sacred Balance“)

Yes, perhaps the best gift we can give to our next generations is to share the adverse experiences with them so that they may also learn, so that each year our community strengthens. While not every person may heed the lessons in life, others may be ready to help heal humanity and our habitats too. Whether humankind lives to see the next century remains to be seen.

Like what an Australian Aborigine proverb says:

“Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.”

Gentleness is a mark of true strength

Yes, rudeness is the weak person’s imitation of strength because the person is resorting to using rudeness to put down others instead of engaging in a discussion with them in a rational and civil manner. It reminds me of some examples given in Darin Hufford’s book “The misunderstood God“, in which many preachers project a rude or abrasive god in their sermons, one who chides or criticises his creations routinely and dismissively. I think it reflects the mentality that the preachers have about “strength equating rudeness”. But that is not so in reality because gentleness or gentility is true strength – it is said that “gentleness is strength under control”. It takes a truly strong man to conquer himself than to conquer a thousand men in the battlefield, as a proverb goes.

Transcript:

Hillary Clinton: How we treat women and girls is absolutely essential to who we are as a people.

Ruth J. Simmons: The issue of gender equality globally must be addressed if the problems that we share across the world are to be solved.

Dr. Helene Gayle: It’s the way that we can bring greater peace and balance in this world.

Gloria Steinhem: We’re at the point of freedom and that means two things. One is it’s maximum danger and the other is we’re not going to stop.

Mary Robinson: What Nick and Sheryl have been able to do is tell very compelling stories of people that they empathize with and understand in their context.

Eva Mendes: Well I got an email. I remember the subject being “Sierra Leone” and I opened that one because I was like, “Well, that’s interesting, what’s that all about?” And then it was the invitation to come on board and I immediately said yes. I love what Nick and Sheryl say in the book that women are not the problem — they’re the solution.

Gabrielle Union: When I started reading what Half the Sky is about and what the message is and the story. “You are so beautiful and so smart. I know you’ll be very successful.” You can’t say no.

Nicholas Kristof: I shouldn’t ask but can I ask, “Did your husband ever hit you?”

Olivia Wilde: Nick and Sheryl kind of revolutionized the way people talk about aid and made people very fired up and inspired and certainly made me want to get out there and be a part of the movement.

Nicholas Kristof: So you were a commercial sex worker from when to when?

Jane Ngoibi: From 94 to 98.

Olivia Wilde: I’m just curious how much you were paid for that work.

Jane Ngoibi: 50 shillings.

Sheryl WuDunn: It’s a tough topic. The challenge that women and girls face around the world is not an easy topic to talk about but we really think it is the moral challenge of the century.

Carolyn Miles: Nick and Sheryl are out there talking about this issue. And not just talking about it kind of theoretically but they have all these stories about actual girls and women that are going through some of these struggles. That really brings it to life for a much wider audience.

Nicholas Kristof: Is that red door, is that a brothel you think? Do you have a supply of condoms here?

As long as the victims are poor, rural, female, illiterate, they don’t have voice.

Diane Lane: To be physically present in a place is irreplaceable. Nicholas is right — you have to show up.

Edna Adan: This is like a war map, a strategic map. Where do we need someone to fight the enemy — disease, death.

Diane Lane: Celebrities can bring these issues into the limelight. That’s just a no-brainer, that’s your job, to shine a little light on people that are actually doing the hard lifting.

Meg Ryan: You can’t come up with something more beautiful than a young, innocent girl. And to inflict that experience on that human being is unspeakably cruel.

Somaly Mam: I want to empower survivors to stand up and say no if they want to say no.

Amie Kandeh: We shouldn’t allow the violence that has been inflicted on women to continue. It must stop, because it can stop, and they need to be part of the solution.

America Ferrera: Sometimes the problem feels so big that changing one life doesn’t feel like enough. But it is.

Urmi Basu: So every person, every corner of this world, needs to raise a voice and say this has to stop.

Sheryl WuDunn: This is not rocket science. This is not a problem that is unsolvable that we have to invent something new. It just takes political will.

Rebecca Lolosoli: The rights we want. We want to choose our husband. We want to own the land. We want to go to school. We don’t want to be cut anymore. We want also to make decisions. We want to participate in politics, to be leaders. We want to be equal.

Desmond Tutu: The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. If we are going to see real development in the world then our best investment is women.

We are connected by a bond of sympathy

“From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: that we are here for the sake of each other – above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built upon the labors of my fellow men, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.”
~ Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein’s quote resonates with me about the interconnectedness of life – who I am today is shaped by the lives of countless souls. Yes we all share a common bond of sympathy as we are expressions of the energy of love and compassion. My own happiness indeed depends on the smile and well being of others, so I am always indebted to them.

I think society often tends to focus on individuals’ accomplishments in history books and records, yet in actuality credit also goes to the many people behind the scenes who supported and helped them in one way or other. No one is insignificant or unimportant in the grand tapestry of life. We all have the power to make a contribution to humanity and the environment – we are the ocean in a drop of water.

Finding the secrets of the universe

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla

I agree that when we think in terms of energy, vibration and frequency, we can find the secrets of the universe. For example, the video “Mysteries of the heart” noted that human emotions are (like) electromagnetic waves (that can be felt from a distance), which I think can be described as vibrations. Everything in the universe is energy, and we can sense whether the energy coming from other people is positive (or affirming) or negative (or critical). Some people may term this as “psychic ability”, whereas those in the religious circles may say things like “I feel the holy spirit is telling me…”, but I believe we all have an intuition within us. Our innate intuition goes beyond the confines of religions and philosophies, because it is universal (or a universal principle), and each of us can follow our intuition of the heart for inner guidance by thinking in terms of energy, vibration and frequency.

From what I learnt about quantum physics, we live in a holographic universe, and what we see around us – the trees, buildings, computer, people – exist in our consciousness only as long as we are aware of them. Hence, when we choose our thoughts, we choose the kind of reality we live in. Our thoughts and emotions are energy, and we can sense the energy of other people’s thoughts and emotions, through verbal and non-verbal cues. We can also sense the energy of the natural phenomena such as weather. It is said that hurricanes may be caused by the collective energies of people’s thoughts and emotions.

Metaphorically speaking, storms can be stilled through knowing our true identity. Jesus calmed the storm in the sea because he knew who he was. “Be still and know I am.” All the manifestations of energy, frequency and vibrations that we see outside in the world come from within. Peace within produces peace without.

The secrets of the universe are within each of us. Peace comes by resting in the truth of our true divine self that is beloved, beautiful and blameless, and knowing we are one with Divine Love and we are one with one another.
