A Poison to “Destroy Bodies and Rot Souls”? | Is This a 900 Year Old Prophecy Predicting the Future?

Even if we are warned of the future, will we believe it? And even if we did, can we stop/change it?

Hello readers.

Because I am interested in the Truth, and because the concept of the “COVID vaccines” and the “Great Reset” agenda is one of the biggest deceptions of all of humanity, I have covered this topic at great length. And it is still an on-going pursuit that I will continue to cover.

However, I also like to provide other perspectives and information that some may consider a little unorthodox; and, perhaps, lesser well-known.

This is one of those posts.

In an attempt to research more about certain events that were predicted throughout the years, I wanted to see if I could find more information about the following topic that is of great interest to me, and that of which I have covered a few times already in previous posts:

As More People “Wake Up”, We Have Been Given Warning Signs of What’s to Come – They All Point to One Thing

Russian Prophet Predicted a Mark of the Beast That “Shines” | Says His Mother Will Live to See the Antichrist

Technology to Turn Human Remains Into Diamonds – Simply to Cherish One’s Memories? | The Pentagon May Know the Answer

Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov was a young Russian prophet who made numerous predictions and left quite a legacy in his hometown, and perhaps is gaining more recognition throughout the world as more and more of his predictions seem to be coming true. He also reached such status, that according to his mother, even government authorities took a huge interest in his eerily accurate predictions – and upon his death had most of his writings stolen from their house while his family was attending his funeral.

Because of this interest, while there are many fascinating references/predictions, I wanted to focus on the following statement:

Valentina Afanasievna Krasheninnikova (mother of Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov) @43:15: “I asked him, “Who are you? How should I perceive your nature?”

He said, “When the book of prophecies is discovered in Lavra then you will know who I am. You will get scared. You will be very scared. Then you will calm down and after some time passes you will be very proud.”

Everybody who knew Slavochka, he said, everybody in the military town where he used to live, will be proud that Slavochka used to live there.

“When you find out who I am, you will get very scared but, afterwards, you will be proud of me.”

Probably, he purposely did not describe this book to me so I wouldn’t tell anyone how it looks like and what is written there. And I did not insist, I am not that curious.

Slavochka described how it will be discovered. He said, “They will be looking for it for a very long time, and they will be doing it secretly. Then they will lose hope to find it. When they completely lose hope, a very tired monk, dressed in dusty clothes, will bring this book, put it on the table and ask, “Maybe this is the one?” And Slavochka said in a childish way, “And that book will be the one!”

A little about everyone will be written there and a little bit about me.

When this book is discovered, it will make a “big splash”. It will be announced on TV. It will be heavily spread far and wide. Masons will be silent, they won’t say a word. Nobody will dare to say a word.”

Now because of this particularly intriguing section, I have been attempting to research this “Book of Prophecies” to identify its validity.

At this time, however, I have not had much luck. (Though that won’t stop me from looking.)

But I did find the following prophecies, allegedly found in Zagorsk Russia, monastery of the Holy Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius in 1992-1993… right around the same time frame that Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov passed away, ironically… and purportedly found by a Russian professor named M. Galvieski.

While there are certainly many eerie correlations between these prophecies (which are claimed to have been written ~1100 A.D. by Jean de Vézelay or Jean de Mareuil (John of Jerusalem)) we must always be discerning that these may, in fact, be created for the sole purpose of misleading or deceiving whoever reads it.

A very skeptical note of these purported prophecies can be found here: John of Jerusalem Prophecies.docx on the last 2 pages. Contained within this doc is also a different translated version than the one presented below.

Again, please keep an open mind and a discerning eye. Regardless if these prophecies were created in 1100 or 1992, they do hold incredible parallels to what’s going on today. And we must also be alert of any particular motives that this writing provides.

Due to the nature of some of the content, I feel it necessary to add a WARNING that there are some triggering subject matter.

The following text was translated by Marilyn Kay Dennis and can be found here: The Prophecies of John of Jerusalem. (If the original author would rather me not use this material in a condensed form like this, please let me know and I will make revisions to accommodate this request. – Thank you to Marilyn Kay Dennis for translating this information and making it available.)

1. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Gold will be in the Blood.
Whoever looks at the sky will calculate how to profit from it
Whoever enters the Temple will meet merchants
The Rulers will be money-changers and usurers
The Sword will defend the Serpent.

But fire will be smouldering
Each town will be Sodom and Gomorrah
And the children of the children
Will become the fiery swarm
They will raise up the old banners.

2. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Man will have peopled the Heavens and the Earth and the Seas with his Creatures
He will want the powers of God
He will know no limit

But each thing will turn against him
He will stagger like a drunken king
He will gallop like a blind knight
And with his spurs he will push his mount into the forest
At the end of the road will be the fall.

3. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Towers of Babel will rise in all corners of the Earth
That one will be Rome and this one will be Byzance
The fields will be empty
The only law will be that of oneself and one’s clan

But the Barbarians will be in the city
There will not be enough bread for everyone
And games will no longer be sufficient
Then people with no future
Will light great fires.

4. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Hunger will squeeze the stomachs of so many men
And cold will turn blue so many hands
That these people will want to see another world
And dream-merchants will come who will offer them the poison.

But it will destroy bodies and rot souls
And those who will have mixed the poison with their blood
Will be like wild beasts caught in a trap
And will kill and rape and extort and steal
And life will become an everyday apocalypse.

5. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Each person will seek as much sexual pleasure as he can
The man will repudiate his wife as many times as he marries
And the woman will go from place to place taking whomever pleases her
Giving birth without giving the Father’s name

But no educator will guide the child
And each one among the others will be alone
Tradition will be lost
The Law will be forgotten
As if the Annunciation had never been made and man
Will become wild again

6. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
The father will take his pleasure with his daughter
Man with man, woman with woman
The old man with the impubescent child
And that will be known by all.

But blood will become impure
The disease will spread from bed to bed
The body will receive all the putrefactions of the earth
Faces will be gaunt, limbs will be emaciated
Love will be a great threat
For those who only know each other sexually.

7. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
He who speaks of sworn Oaths and of Law
Will not be heard
He who preaches the Christian Faith
Will lose his voice in the desert.

But everywhere will spread the strong waters
Of other religions
False messiahs will assemble blinded men
And the armed Infidel will be like never before
He will speak of justice and of right
And his faith will be burning and decisive
He will take his revenge for the Crusade.

8. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
The noise of killing will roll like a storm upon the earth
There will be barbarians among the soldiers of the last legions
People of different faiths will live in the heart of the Holy Cities
Each in turn will be barbarous, faithless and lawless.

There will be no more law and order
Hate will spread like a flame in the dry forest
Barbarians will massacre soldiers
Those of no faith will slit the throats of the faithful
Brutality will be everywhere and the cities will die.

9. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Men will judge each other according to their Race and their Religion
Nobody will listen to the suffering hearts of the children
They will be taken from their nests like baby birds
And no-one will be able to protect them from the rapid hand
By the gauntlet.

Hate will flood the lands which thought themselves pacified
And nobody will be spared, neither the elderly nor the wounded
Houses will be destroyed or stolen
People will take the place of others
Each one will close his eyes so as not to see the women raped.

10. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Everyone will know what is happening everywhere on Earth
They will see the child whose bones are piercing his skin
And the one whose eyes are covered in flies
And the one being hunted like a rat.

But the man who sees will turn away his head
For he will be thinking only of himself
That man will give a handful of seeds in charity
When he sleeps on full sacks
And what he gives with one hand he will take back with the other.

11. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Man will make merchandise of everything
Everything will have its price
Trees, water and animals
Nothing more will be given and everything will be sold.

But then Man will be no more than his weight of flesh
His body will be bartered like a side of meat
They will take his eye and his heart
Nothing will be sacred, neither his life nor his soul
They will compete for his dead body and his blood
Like a dead animal to be cut up.

12. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Man will have changed the face of the earth
He will think himself the master and Ruler
Of the forests and the flocks
He will have burrowed into the ground and the sky
And left his mark in the rivers and the seas.

But the earth will be naked and sterile
The Air will become burning hot and the water will stink
Life will wilt because man will use up the richness of the world
And man will be alone like a wolf in hatred of himself.

13. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
The child too will be sold
Some people will use him like a quintain
To get sexual pleasure from his new skin
Others will treat him like a servile animal.

They will forget the sacred weakness of the child
And his mystery
He will be a foal to be trained
Like a lamb to be bled, to be slaughtered
And man will be nothing more than savage cruelty.

14. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
The opinions and the minds of men will be imprisoned
They will be intoxicated and will not know it
They will take images and reflections for the truth of the world
They will be treated like sheep.

Then the flesh-eaters will come
Rapacious people will herd them
The better to lead them to the cliff’s edge
And turn them against each other
They will be skinned for their wool and their leather
And man if he survives will be stripped of his soul.

15. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Rulers with no religious beliefs will reign
They will issue orders to unsuspecting and passive crowds of people
They will hide their faces and keep their names secret
And their castles will be hidden in the forests.

But they will decide the fate of everything and of everyone
No-one will participate in the meetings of their order
Everyone will be a true serf and will believe himself to be a free man and a knight
The only ones to rise up will be those of the untamed cities
And of the heretic faiths
But first of all they will be defeated and burnt alive.

16. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Men will be so numerous over the lands
That they will resemble an ant’s nest
Into which a stick has been poked
They will swarm everywhere and death will crush them underfoot
Like frightened insects.

Great movements will push them from one country to another
Brown skins will mix with white skins
The Christian faith with that of the Infidel
Some will preach sworn peace
But everywhere there will be fighting among enemy tribes.

17. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Men will want to break down all barriers
The mother will have the hair of an old woman
The path of nature will be abandoned
And families will be like scattered grains
That nothing can unite.

It will therefore be another world
Each person will roam without ties like a bolted horse
Going in all directions with no guide
Unhappy the knight who mounts this steed
He will be without stirrups and will fall into the ditch.

18. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Men will no longer rely on the law of God
But will want to lead their lives like a horse
They will want to choose their children in their wives’ wombs
And will kill those that they don’t like.

But what sort of man takes himself for God like that?
The Powerful will seize the best lands
And the most beautiful women
The poor and the weak will be cattle
Each home will become a donjon
Fear will be in every heart like a poison.

19. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
A black and secret order will have risen
Its law will be of hate and its arm poison
It will want always more gold and will spread its reign
Over the earth
Those who serve it will be bound to each other by a kiss of blood.

Good men and the weak will be submitted to its rule
The Powerful will enter its service
The only law will be that which it dictates in the shadows
It will sell the poison even in the churches
And the world will walk with the scorpion under its heel.

20. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
A lot of men will remain seated with their arms crossed
Or will wander without knowing where, with glazed eyes
For they will no longer have a forge to beat metal
And no field to cultivate

They will be like a seed which cannot take root
Roaming around and owning nothing, humiliated and desperate
The youngest and the oldest often homeless
They will have only war to save them
And they will start by fighting themselves
And they will hate their lives.

21. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Illnesses from the water from the sky and from the earth
Will attack man and endanger him
He will want to revive that which he has destroyed
And protect that which remains
He will be afraid of the days to come.

But it will be very late
The desert will swallow up the land
And water will be deeper and deeper
It will flow some days
Taking everything like a flood
And the next day there won’t be enough for the land
And the air will eat away the bodies of the weakest.

22. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
The earth will quake in several places
And the cities will fall down
Everything that will have been built without heeding the wise ones
Will be endangered and destroyed
Mud will submerge towns
And the ground will open under the Palaces.

Man will persist for his pride is his folly
He will not heed the repeated warnings of the earth
But fire will destroy the new Romes
And in the accumulated ruins
The poor and the lawless will loot in spite of the Legions
The abandoned riches.

23. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
The sun will burn the earth
The Air will no longer be a veil which protects from the fire
It will be only a curtain with holes
And the burning light will eat away skins and eyes.

The sea will rise like boiling water
Cities and seasides will be covered
And entire continents will disappear
Men will take refuge on the heights
And they will rebuild already forgetting that which has happened.

24. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Men will know how to make mirages live
The senses will be deceived and they will believe they are touching that which is not
They will follow paths which are seen only by the eyes
And in this way dreams will be able to come alive.

But man will no longer know how to separate
That which is from that which is not
He will be lost inside false labyrinths
Those who will know how to make the mirages live
Will take advantage of the naive man by deceiving him
And a lot of men will become grovelling dogs.

25. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
The animals which Noah had embarked on his Ark
Will be no more in Man’s hands
Than beasts transformed according to his will
And who will worry about their lifetime of suffering?

Man will have made each species into what he wanted
And he will have destroyed numerous ones
What will the man have become who will have changed the laws of life
Who will have made the living animal a piece of clay
Will he be the equal of God or the child of the Devil?

26. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
You must be afraid for the child of man
Poison and despair will lie in wait for him
He will be desired only selfishly and not for his own sake or for the world
He will be tracked down for sexual pleasure and sometimes his body will be sold.

But even the one being protected by his family
Will be in danger of having a dead mind
He will live inside games and mirages
Which will guide him because there will be no more educators
No-one will have taught him to hope and how to act.

27. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Man will think that he is God when he will be nothing more than a baby
He will hit out, always overcome by anger and jealousy,
But he will be armed with the power that he has taken
And blind Prometheus he will be able to destroy everything around him.

He will remain a dwarf of the soul and he will have the strength of a giant
He will take enormous strides forward but he will not know which road to take
His head will be heavy with knowledge
But he will not know why he lives and dies
He will be like the fire always gesticulating or the child who whimpers.

28. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Whole regions will be prey to war
Beyond the Roman limes and even on the former territory of the Empire, men of same cities will cut each others throats
Here it will be war between tribes and there between religious believers.

The Jews and the children of Allah will unendingly oppose each other
And the land of Christ will be their battlefield
But the infidels will want to defend the purety of their faith everywhere
And opposite them will be only doubt and power
Then death will advance everywhere like the flag of the new times.

29. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
A multitude of men will be excluded from human life
They will have neither rights, nor roof, nor bread,
They will be naked and will have only their bodies to sell
They will be pushed far away from the opulent towers of Babel.

They will swarm like a remorse and a menace
They will occupy entire regions and will proliferate
They will listen to the preachings of vengeance
And they will launch an attack on the proud towers
The time of barbaric invasions will have come.

30. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Man will have entered into the dark labyrinth
He will be afraid and he will close his eyes for he will no longer want to see
He will be wary of everything and afraid at every step
But still he will be pushed onward for no halt will be allowed him.

Even though the voice of Cassandra will be loud and strong
He will not hear it
For he will want to possess more and more and his head will be lost in mirages
Those who govern him will deceive him
And there will be only bad shepherds.

31. In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Men will have at last opened their eyes
They will no longer be locked up inside their heads or in their cities
They will see and hear each other from one point of the earth to another
They will know that whatever strikes one of them hurts the others.

Men will be like a great single body
Of which each of them will be a tiny part
And together they will constitute the heart
And there will be one language which will be spoken by everyone and this is how the great human being will be born.

32. In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Man will have conquered the sky
He will create stars in the great dark blue sea
And he will navigate on this shining ship
New Ulysses, companion of the sun, for the celestial Odyssey.

But he will also be the ruler of the water
He will have built great nautical cities
Which will be fed by sea crops
He will live like this in every part of the great domain
And nothing will be forbidden him.

33. In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Men will be able to go down under the waters
Their bodies will be new and they will be fish
And some will fly high, higher than the birds
As if stones don’t fall.

They will communicate with each other
For their minds will be so greatly open that they will receive all messages
And dreams will be shared
And they will live as long as the oldest of men
The one of whom the Holy Books speak.

34. In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Man will know what the spirit of all things is
The stone or the water, the body of the animal or the gaze of others
He will have pierced the secrets that the ancient Gods possessed
And he will open door after door in the labyrinth of the new life.

He will create with the gushing power of a water source
He will teach the knowledge to the multitude of men
And the children will know more about the earth and the sky than anyone before them
And Man’s body will be bigger and skilful
And his mind will have embraced all things and will have understood them.

35. In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Man will no longer be the only ruler for woman will come and seize the sceptre
She will be the great mistress of the future times
And that which she thinks, she will impose on men
She will be the mother of this Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
She will spread the warm softness of the sea after the days of the Devil
She will be beauty after the ugliness of the barbarous times
The Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand will change into a gentle time
People will love and they will share
They will dream and they will give birth to the dreams.

36. In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Man will have a second birth
The Spirit will take hold of the human throng
Who will worship in brotherhood
Then the end of the barbarous times will begin.

This will be the time of a new vigour of the Faith
After the black days of the beginning of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Happy days will open up
Man will again find the path of Men
And the earth will be in order.

37. In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Roads will go from one end of the earth and the sky to the other end
Forests will be dense again
And the deserts will have been irrigated
The waters will have become pure again.

The earth will be like a garden
Man will watch over everything that lives
He will purify that which he has soiled
He will feel as if all the earth is his home
And he will be wise in thinking of the days to come.

38. In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Each person will be like a measured footstep
They will know everything about the world and about their bodies
They will cure illness before it appears
Each person will be healer of himself and of the others.

They will have understood that you have to help to be able to maintain
And man, after the times of narrow-mindedness and of avarice,
Will open his heart and his purse to the poorest
He will feel himself to be a knight of the human order
And in this way a new time will at last begin.

39. In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Man will have learnt to give and to share
The bitter days of solitude will be gone
He will believe once more in the spirit
And the Barbarians will have acquired recognition.

But that will come after the war and the fires
That will spring up from the blackened ruins of the towers of Babel
And it will have taken an iron fist
For the disorder to be put in order and for man to find again the right path.

40. In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Man will know that all living things are bearers of light
And that they are creatures to be respected
He will have built the new cities
In the sky, on the earth and on the sea.

He will have the memory of what was
And he will know what will be
He will no longer be afraid of his own death
For in his life he will have lived several lives
And the light, he will understand, will never go out.

“The Cassandra metaphor (variously labelled the Cassandra ‘syndrome’, ‘complex’, ‘phenomenon’, ‘predicament’, ‘dilemma’, or ‘curse’), is a term applied in situations in which valid warnings or concerns are dismissed or disbelieved.

The term originates in Greek mythology. Cassandra was a daughter of Priam, the King of Troy. Struck by her beauty, Apollo provided her with the gift of prophecy, but when Cassandra refused Apollo’s romantic advances, he placed a curse ensuring that nobody would believe her warnings. Cassandra was left with the knowledge of future events, but could neither alter these events nor convince others of the validity of her predictions.”

ONE LAST NOTE: There are some awful, awful things related in these prophecies, but at the end it seems as if an “enlightening age” will be on the horizon. Again, I cannot verify what the sole purpose is for these prophecies – though I will say that there are indications that imply a spiritual awakening of sorts.

Of course, the one thing that is crucially missing in these prophecies is the mention of Jesus Christ as our Savior. There is no mention of this AT ALL. There are only a few sections mentioning Christians and the land of Christ. But NOTHING that mentions the Lord Jesus Christ as our salvation.

I find this concerning. Most of these verses seem to elude to mankind being able to attain this elucidation on their own. No credit or glory is given to God.

While I do believe that we will eventually have a blissful Utopia with God/Jesus Christ at the helm, and that a lot of what is stated in these “prophecies” are eerily accurate to the age that we’re living in right now, I have my reservations that this writing is a Holy prediction. Some have considered it may be a forgery to mislead believers/non-believers alike. Another implication is that it could be a protocol/guideline for certain secret societies to follow.

With all of that being said, I understand that some readers may not believe in God/Jesus Christ – so I have to reiterate that this is just my opinion, belief and assessment only (which my assessment is subject to change – but my belief in Jesus Christ is not); and thought it was interesting enough to post here for others to wonder and consider about.

In the meantime, while there are a multitude of subjects I’d like to address from the above versed statements, there is one specific topic that I have chosen to focus on in my next post. (And I will, of course, continue to keep an eye out for news of the real “book of prophecies”.)

Much love, and God bless.

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.

Is The World Ready for a Divine Revelation? | A “Warning” to Wake Us Up?

“In that moment, we’re going to see our conscience. You’re going to see everything wrong that you’re doing and the good you’re not doing.”

First off, I want to thank my readers for their attention, awareness and support. I appreciate all of you more than I can say.

Secondly, as some may be aware by now, I am an unabashed follower of Jesus Christ, and will refer to his teachings and versus from the Bible from time to time.

Today, I’d like to take this opportunity to really expand on His teachings of Love and following in His footsteps, so that we can be reminded of the most important aspects of Life and the key attributes to pursue.

Conscious Awakening

Embellishments have been added for emphasis:

“Jesus spoke of the need to believe in God, in God’s order, in other people, and in love and understanding among people. He emphasized the need to believe in the good, but not only to believe but to do good deeds and live accordingly. Words themselves or declarations in accordance with the enumerated nonsense do not mean anything without deeds. One should do good deeds and live according to these principles. One should live in love and harmony with other people, and spread positive energy through words and deeds. He said that all people are equal before God and should act accordingly. He kept repeating that only faith in God, faith in love among people, living by these principles, doing good deeds, and showing love to others bring reward at the end of life. All who adhere to these principles will be rewarded for their good deeds, and especially those who still in this life experience the knowledge of connection with God. He has mentioned many times that life is eternal and that the position of every man after death depends on the behavior and deeds done in this life.

He talked about all people being connected to God, they just need to experience the knowledge of it. Everyone will experience it, but only at the moment of death. Those who come to this realization while they are still alive are extremely lucky, but in order to reach this realization they must deserve it with their faith, effort and deeds.

Marijan H STE

Now, I want to bring special attention to Marijan’s testimony in which he states that “Everyone will experience” being connected to God. He does mention that this only happens at the moment of death, but then adds that there are some that will realize this when they are still alive.

This hits home for me since there have been times where I will be hit with a brief flash of insight that I know for a fact did not come from me, but rather… outside of me, but within me at the same time – if that makes sense.

My own personal knowledge at that time did not match with what I was being shown. My mentality at that time was one of bitterness, anger and frustration. This “insight” quite literally showed me a different way. And that was through love, patience and understanding.

Again, I have to reiterate, this insight did not come from me. I cannot take the credit. Some other being was gently guiding me in the proper action and emotions to take.

Therefore, I cannot simply disregard people’s personal testimonies when it comes to accounts like these. While they are anecdotal, my own personal experiences is what led me into researching NDE’s and STE’s to begin with. And I am not saying that all NDE’s/STE’s are real – discernment should still be used and a reasonable amount of skepticism, but one should also not just dismiss other’s experiences but rather keep an open mind that it is a possibility.

Now, to further expand on Marijan’s experience, I want to mention a prophetic “warning”/vision that allegedly appeared to 4 young children in Garabandal, Spain of the Virgin Mary giving them signs and predictions of what is to come.

The following list are the warnings that Conchita Gonzales says she was given during these visions:

The “Warning”

– The Warning is a thing that comes directly from God and will be visible throughout the entire world in whatever place anyone might be.

– The Warning will be like a revelation of our sins – and it will be seen and experienced equally by believers and non-believers and people of any religion whatsoever.

– The Warning is like a purification for the Miracle.

– And it is a sort of a catastrophe. It will make us think of the dead, that is, we would prefer to be dead rather than to experience the Warning.

– The Warning is something supernatural and will not be explained by science.

– lt will be seen and felt.

– The Warning will be a correction of the conscience of the world.

– For those who do not know Christ, they will believe it is a Warning from God.

– The most important thing about that day is that everyone in the whole world will see a sign, a grace, or a punishment within themselves, in other words, a Warning.

– They will find themselves all alone in the world no matter where they are at the time, alone with their conscience right before God.

– They will then see all their sins and what their sins have caused.

– We will all feel it differently because it will depend on our conscience. The Warning will be very personal, therefore, we will all react differently to it.

– The most important thing will be to recognize our own sins and the bad consequences of them.

– Your experience of the Warning will be different from mine because your sins are different from mine.

– This will be a Warning to see what you have done with your sins.

– It will be like a purification before the Miracle to see if with the Warning and Miracle we will be converted.

– The Virgin told me that before the Miracle, God will be sending us a Warning so as to purify us or prepare us to see the Miracle and in this way we may draw enough grace to change our lives toward God.

– It is a phenomenon which will be seen and felt in all the world and everywhere; I have always given as an example that of two stars that collide.

– This phenomenon will not cause physical damage, but it will horrify us because at that very moment we will see our souls and the harm we have done.

– It will be as though we were in agony but we will not die by its effects but perhaps we will die of fright or shock to see ourselves.

– No one will have doubts of it being from God, and of its not being human.

– I who know what it is, am very much afraid of that day.The Virgin told us that the Warning and Miracle will be the last warnings or public manifestations that God will give us. This is why I believe that after them we will be near the end of time.

– To me it’s like two stars that crash and make a lot of noise and a lot of light but they don’t fall down.

– It’s something that’s not going to hurt us but we’re going to see it.

– In that moment, we’re going to see our conscience. You’re going to see everything wrong that you’re doing and the good you’re not doing.

Fascinatingly, her warnings seem to be extremely similar to that of what many near death experiencers claim is what happened to them.

They have a life review in which they see the actions and harm, (and/or good), that they have put out onto the world and the consequences/effects that it has caused. Many people have reported that they could feel the devastation that their actions have caused to other people – the amount of hurt and pain that they inflicted, even if they did it unknowingly. And they could also see how it affects others, because that action stays with who received it, and they (again, even if unknowingly) send that energy out onto others as well, which perpetuates the hurtful cycle.

Likewise, they could feel the amount of love and compassion that they have sent out into the world; how even the smallest act of kindness was rejoiced and praised by heavenly/divine beings and how it reverberated throughout the whole entire world. A chain reaction – carrying on the good, kind deeds so that others can feel it and send it forward also.

During your experience, did you gain information about life’s difficulties, challenges and hardships?

“Yes I experienced the difficulties and hardships of the behavior I was experecing in the past and all the people that I hurt thatwere still in some pain as a direct result of my actions.”

Frances Z NDE

Did you suddenly seem to understand everything?

“Everything about myself or others I always felt united and never conflicted with nature. I feel gratitude deeply. I was able to feel everything from the other person’s emotions. It changes you greatly. I am different in how I treat others. I have always treated others with respect, and thought I was very good to most people. I discovered that other people can accept things very differently, even though it was presented well, and with respect.”

Yves F NDE

Did scenes from your past come back to you?

“My past flashed before me, out of my control I learned tens of thousands of things I viewed them as they happened through a tv like viewer. you can learn anything you want you must just think the question to see it as it happened, the end of the world, any wars, plagues the birth of christ any thing you can think of. my life review was viewed the same way. one important thing that I will always rember after my life review is that (every thing you thought that mattered doesnt and the only thing that does matter is how you treat other people).”

Ron A NDE

Many times, that form of self-reflection is lost on us. We have no idea how other people feel, only ourselves, so a lot of people don’t contemplate on the potential effects that their actions are causing others. I myself am still learning how my actions affect others, and I work on trying to be more aware and cognitive of this fact.

But then there will be those who don’t consider these types of things at all. And while I cannot say that my “life review”/”warning” will be squeaky clean – because I am admittedly apprehensive of what God/my own soul will show me, I welcome this warning with all my heart, because I want to learn how to be better. And I want others to receive that enlightenment of how their actions/sins affect others as well.

And what’s interesting to me, is that I have often thought, “Why do people have to die, or be near death, to gain that insight/awareness? And why do some people have a spiritually transformative experience that changes their lives, while others don’t? Some people don’t seem to experience anything supernatural. Why? If God can send divine inspiration and enlightenment to some people, then certainly He can do so to everyone. So why doesn’t He?”

Now, I will not get into the “free-will” debate, because I don’t have enough wisdom to comment much on this, but only to say that our worldly knowledge is extremely limited, and cannot even begin to comprehend the Truth of what’s held in our consciousness and connection to God. So this matter I will leave to readers to ponder about.

But I will mention that God is sovereign, and while I, at one time, denounced God and rebuked Him, I am beyond grateful that He has brought me back from the brink of darkness and hatred, and has opened my eyes to His Love and Mercy.

And so I have questioned why some people seem to have profound near death/spiritual experiences, while others don’t. And I have considered that we all do, indeed, have incredible, unexplainable experiences throughout our lives; but only some pay attention and realize it, while others remain under the impression that it was a coincidence or a fluke.

And I have prayed, constantly, every day, that God sends us all a sign that will open our eyes, a conscious awakening, that we can see the error of our ways and the true path that will lead to our salvation. While many of us know that is in following Jesus Christ – not just believing that Christ died on the cross – so many of us don’t realize this. So divine intervention would be a wonderful way to approach this.

Again, I have prayed about this for years, before I even heard about the Garabandal visions. And it wasn’t until recently that I found about these prophetic warnings. And so I can only hope and pray that this is true. I, of course, don’t know about the legitimacy of these claims, but I know that God has the power to do this, and it will lead to putting an end to all of the pain and suffering, anger and hatred, division and chaos that is trying to take over.

In the meantime, the best thing we can do to honor God and Jesus Christ, is to live as lovingly and inspired by His commandments as much as possible.

“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” – Mark 12:30-31

What is “Being Successful”?

The answer may surprise you.

What does “success” mean to you?

Perhaps getting a promotion at your job? Rising to the top of the ranks? Getting good grades in school? Scoring a perfect game? Having a large family with a nice big house, perfect yard, white picket fence? Owning your own business?

All of these are very ambitious goals to have.

And, ultimately, don’t matter.

The Key to Success

If you’re familiar with this site, you’ll know that I cover a wide range of different topics to spread awareness. Some are more of a guideline into becoming more kind and compassionate – to change the world for the better; and some take a trip down the dark side – going into awful, depraved things that are going on that the world NEEDS to know.

Both of these go hand in hand because how do we improve our future, if the darkness remains and is allowed to run rampant while we all turn a blind eye?

“Why is all of this relevant to my success?” you may ask?

It has EVERYTHING to do with it.

Let me explain.

I already know I will get doubters and naysayers thinking that this site is just another woo-woo site. And I’m perfectly okay with that. After all, who said the universe had to be anything but “natural”? It most certainly isn’t. Or is it? Perhaps the “supernatural” simply doesn’t exist, and everything is, at it’s core, “natural”.

With that being said, I am also a huge proponent of near death experiences. Why? Because I have personally had a few experiences that I could not simply explain away as “natural”. And they were eerily similar to nde’s. Let me be clear. I was not near death. I don’t drink or do drugs. I wasn’t dreaming or hallucinating. How else could I explain it?

Oh, right. I must be crazy!
I'm not crazy! I swear!
Crazy people don't know that they're crazy. I know I'm crazy therefore I'm not crazy. Isn't that crazy?

That’s obviously the only other rational explanation here. Right? Even more obvious than there really is something more going on than meets the eye, and we’re all just full of our own pride and hubris to admit it. Because, after all, it’s been admitted by scientists and researchers all over the world that we know absolutely everything there is to know about the universe. Case closed, everyone. No more mysteries. Everything’s been solved!

Oh. That’s right. That’s never been said in the history of ever.

(Yes, I may show a slight sarcasm at times. My apologies.)

Getting back into it, my own experiences forced me to take a look outside of my own scope of understanding. Now for those who have never had an unusual experience? I cannot say. If I had never had this happen to me, would I be the person I am today? Most likely not. I was heading down the WRONG path. And I actually surmise that ALL of us go through these unusual experiences at least once in our life, but we explain it away with a “logical” explanation. Therefore diminishing the actual impact it may have had on our life.

I know the topic of near death experiences is a controversial one. But isn’t it interesting that SO many people come back with a message that contradicts the way they were living life on Earth? Let’s take a look at one of the more prominent examples of Howard Storm.

His idea of success was like most people. Do well in school. Have a great career. Make a lot of money. Be respected and revered in his community and among his colleagues.

But during his near death experience, he was met with a HUGE wake-up call:

Howard Storm

My life was shown in a way that I had never thought of before. All of the things that I had worked to achieve, the recognition that I had worked for, in elementary school, in high school, in college, and in my career, they meant nothing in this setting.

I could feel their feelings of sorrow and suffering, or joy, as my life’s review unfolded. They didn’t say that something was bad or good, but I could feel it. And I could sense all those things they were indifferent to. They didn’t, for example, look down on my high school shot-put record. They just didn’t feel anything towards it, nor towards other things which I had taken so much pride in.

What they responded to was how I had interacted with other people. That was the long and short of it. Unfortunately, most of my interactions with other people didn’t measure up with how I should have interacted, which was in a loving way. Whenever I did react during my life in a loving way they rejoiced.
 
Most of the time I found that my interactions with other people had been manipulative. During my professional career, for example, I saw myself sitting in my office, playing the college professor, while a student came to me with a personal problem. I sat there looking compassionate, and patient, and loving, while inside I was bored to death. I would check my watch under my desk as I anxiously waited for the student to finish.

I got to go through all those kinds of experiences in the company of these magnificent beings.

When I was a teenager my father’s career put him into a high-stress, twelve-hour-a-day job. Out of my resentment because of his neglect of me, when he came home from work, I would be cold and indifferent toward him. This made him angry, and it gave me further excuse to feel hatred toward him. He and I fought, and my mother would get upset. Most of my life I had felt that my father was the villain and I was the victim. When we reviewed my life I got to see how I had precipitated so much of that, myself. Instead of greeting him happily at the end of a day, I was continually putting thorns in him in order to justify my hurt.

I got to see when my sister had a bad night one night, how I went into her bedroom and put my arms around her. Not saying anything, I just lay there with my arms around her. As it turned out that experience was one of the biggest triumphs of my life.

– Howard Storm (near-death.com)

In his testimony, Howard Storm is basically admitting his shortcomings of what was expected of him. He realized that his idea of success was met with indifference and did not matter in the grand scheme of things. What actually mattered was how he treated others. Which begs the questions, “What does “success” really mean for us?”

My friends then said, “Do you think that we expect you to be perfect, after all the love we feel for you, even after you were on Earth blaspheming God, and treating everyone around you like dirt? And this, despite the fact that we were sending people to try and help you, to teach you the truth? Do you really think we would be apart from you now?”

– Howard Storm (near-death.com)

It’s also interesting how Howard Storm refers to himself and how he treated people. He acknowledges that he “treated them like dirt”. It takes a humble and insightful person to come to this realization. (Or a person who has been enlightened by a divine encounter…)

When he [Jesus] told me that I had to come back to the world and I was trying to convince him not to send me back to this world, I asked him what would I do if I came back… Before he had a chance to answer, I said, you know I am an artist and I would like to build you a shrine… I would make this shrine so big and beautiful and bizarre that people would come from all over the world out of curiosity to see what it was about. And what they would find was it would be about you. And that would make them think about you. That’s what I would like to do if I came back.

He said, I would rather you didn’t do that.

And I said, WHAT?!! People have been building shrines to you forever. There are lots of shrines. Why can’t I build a shrine? I would like to build a shrine.

He said you spent so much of your life hiding out in the studio, avoiding people, I would prefer it if you didn’t avoid people by building this big shrine… I don’t really care about shrines. People like to build shrines. I understand that. It makes them feel good. It does absolutely nothing for me or for God. We don’t have any use for them whatsoever. If that’s what amuses you, I guess that’s what you gotta do. But don’t do it for me. Don’t deceive yourself into thinking it’s something I want or need, because I don’t.

I’m like, OK, you shot down my idea, what’s you’re idea of what would I do?

And he said, love the person that you’re with.

And I said, OK, great, I’ll do that. No problem. What do you want me to do?

He said, I just told you what I want you to do: love the person that you’re with.

And I said, Yeah, but after I do that, what do you really want me to do?

No, that is what I want you to do: love the person that you’re with.

I said well, that’s simple enough, that’s easy, I can do that.

And he said, oh really. Well, that’s what I want you to do. That’s enough.

And I said, how is it enough?

He said, if you do that, you’ll change the world.

– Howard Storm (near-death.com)

Again, Howard Storm admits that his idea of how he wanted to honor God/Jesus was shot down. Instead, he was given a very direct task. That didn’t have anything to do with Howard’s profession or what he actually wanted to do – what he thought was the best way to honor God. No, he was simply told to “love the person you’re with”.

Dr. Dianne Morrissey

Dianne Morrissey has also experienced a life review in which her acts of unselfish kindness overrode anything else she did in life.

“At the same time, to my amazement, I was re-living my entire twenty-eight years simultaneously! The best experiences brought me feelings of great joy, as if God were talking to me through the angelic being, sharing the highest moments of my life. I felt as if every spirit in Heaven was watching with me, applauding me and letting me know that God approved of my caring, unselfish deeds. It was then that I asked myself, ‘Am I dead? Am I really dead?’

“As the life review continued, I was shown two very special deeds I had performed. As these scenes were displayed before me, every emotion I had originally felt returned in full force. I also felt as if God and the angelic being were honoring me for having performed those deeds.

“The first deed I witnessed had occurred the day I stopped my car to help push a woman’s stalled station wagon out of mainstream traffic and into a supermarket driveway. The driver had been struggling to push the car by herself, and I felt compelled to give her a helping hand. After I had helped push her vehicle to safety, I rushed back to my car, afraid of getting a ticket for being double-parked. In my haste, I hadn’t given her a chance to thank me. While reviewing this scene, I was filled with indescribable feelings of love, which seemed to be directed to me from angelic beings high above me.
 
“Then, my angel showed me a second vision, a scene I’d forgotten. I now saw myself at seventeen, when I’d worked at a convalescent hospital after school. I had grown fond of a toothless old woman who was no longer able to speak clearly, and who never had visitors. She liked to suck on graham crackers before going to bed, but no one wanted to serve her because when she had finished, she would drool as she kissed the entire length of the arm of the person feeding her. While others avoided her, I willingly fed her the cookies she adored, seeing how happy this made her.
 
“When that scene was replayed for me, I felt as if every loving spirit in God’s kingdom was thanking me in unison. I was amazed that such an act could have meant so much to God – and to me. I felt humbled and very honored.

Dr. Dianne Morrissey – (near-death.com)

During her return to her body, Dianne comes to the revelation that the “American dream” she had attained no longer mattered. And she regretted not living more meaningfully by reaching out to others:

“I finally found myself back in my house, once again looking down at my physical body. This time, I realized that my physical body had the potential to live again. I had begun to care less and less whether I returned to my physical body, but at this moment, looking down at my body, my attitude underwent a change. I thought, ‘How sad; she has done so very little.’ I realized ‘Dianne’ hadn’t touched as many people as she could have while alive. And I realized how life could be enriched by touching others lives more deeply and meaningfully.
 
“While alive, as Dianne, I had always known that my life was full of certain pleasures: a beautiful home, a good job, a nice car, warm friends, a wonderful family, a beloved best friend, and a musical career I loved. ‘But none of these matter any more,’ I thought, reversing myself again. Only the Light mattered. Only God mattered.

Dr. Dianne Morrissey – (near-death.com)

Daniel Rosenblit

Daniel explains how he felt towards his fellow man before he had his near death experience. He admits how condescending, inconsiderate, and rude he was to those he felt were “inferior”. He also explains how easily “success” came to him.

After my spiritual self died, I was neither interested in God, nor concerned about spiritual matters whatsoever. As I grew older it appeared to me that religious people were weak and used religion as their crutch. I considered myself to be a strong, self-reliant person who did not need any crutch, so I felt superior to them. I grew into puberty a purely carnal creature. Pretty girls and squeezing the gusto out of life became everything to me.

I was the type of person who was successful in everything I did. I was a good student and an excellent athlete – as a wrestler and football player. Though I was short in stature (5’6″), I won awards as a wrestler and was an exceptional running back in football. God blessed me with being an excellent football player and many of my classmates admired me for this. But instead of acknowledging God’s hand for my skills, I was becoming puffed-up with pride. I was not grateful to God, nor did I give Him any credit for anything (At this time in my life I doubted whether a Higher Power even existed).

I considered my friends and myself to be upper crust people, and I looked down with contempt on people in school who I viewed as physically weak. Additionally, I considered ugly or fat girls to be utterly useless. A few of my classmates would regularly make jokes directed at the mentally retarded and physically handicapped kids, or racist jokes directed against blacks or Puerto Ricans. I grew up in an all-white school. But I never laughed to their faces, but I laughed along with the crowd behind their backs. One exception was that I belittled a black fellow who was in my troop when I was a boy scout. I believed that there were a few winners and mostly losers in life, and I considered myself one of the winners.

Note:  At the time of my death experience, I was your typical narcissistic college student who was solely seeking personal pleasure and personal goals. Like most middle class young people in America, I had no responsibilities. With all my spare time and energy, I desperately tried to squeeze the most fun and pleasure out of life than I possibly could. Spiritual matters meant nothing to me.

Daniel Rosenblist – (near-death.com)

Here Daniel realizes that everything he strived for, everything he thought that mattered, was actually completely contradictory to what he was shown. And that he was doing everything wrong!

In this new divine light, I saw more Reality. The Reality was this:

My entire life had been one huge test and I was now being graded on literally everything! Every word, deed, and even thought!

Interestingly enough, my judge was not some immense being on a great white throne. Something had emerged from within myself which I believe was my soul, and “It” sat in judgment of me. I had never recalled ever being in touch with this part of myself before. My soul showed absolutely no partiality towards me, even though “It” had resided within me my entire life.

My own soul sat in Judgment of my entire life. It assumed a totally objective and impartial role. At this time I was fully aware that this soul of mine would just as soon plunge me into Hell rather than offend God. “It” knew perfection, which is God’s standard, and all of my actions were compared to this standard. By “perfection,” I mean pure, untainted Love.

Also, because I was living contrary to God’s ways, I learned that all of creation considered me their enemy and was poised to persecute me! I learned that all of creation serves God except for human beings. This is because we are the only creatures with free will. But most of us choose to misuse it!

I was shown that pure love was serving God and others without any self-centered motives. Even if one was motivated to perform a good deed in order to feel good about one’s own self or to attain future treasures in heaven, this would be considered to be a tainted act; totally unacceptable to God. I was shown that God only accepts selfless acts of love. God is Love. Love only recognizes love.

Daniel Rosenblist – (near-death.com)

So what are we striving for? What is the REAL definition of “being successful”?

Since most of our neighbors – the entire human race – live their lives in darkness and are headed for very great sorrow at the time of death, we are real fools if we compare ourselves to them! God showed me the wise alternative is to compare ourselves to the holy ones … the saintly – people such as the eastern mystics, Mother Teresa, etc. Truly, God expects us all to become like these holy ones! I’m not kidding!! Indeed, God’s expectations of our character are far, far higher than most realize or want to admit! Jesus taught people to ”be perfect as your Father is in Heaven.” My friends, this is not an opinion. It is a commandment! He fully expects us to sincerely strive for it!

The Holy One showed me that throughout my entire life, my ego had occupied the center-stage of my life. I had lived solely for gratifying myself. I was motivated by self-interest in everything that I did; though, I had never consciously thought about this before. The foundation of my life was myself and all of my actions were performed to obtain some type of reward for myself; either tangible or intangible. Either I wanted money, sex, a pat on the back, a wink, a smile, someone to think well of me, etc. Thus, all of my acts had been polluted by selfish motives in varying degrees. Thus, until this point all of my life’s deeds had been totally unacceptable to God!

Actually, I was shown that I had not even performed one deed that was acceptable to God my entire life; not even one! I was shattered, speechless, and panic stricken all at the same time. I cried, “I cannot believe it, I have wasted my entire life!” I had absolutely nothing to show for all my entire time spent on Earth.

Fun and pleasure, which were once everything to me, were not in my mind anymore. At this point, all that mattered to me was to find pure acts of love to offer up to God so that He would accept them. I feverishly searched, but to my dismay I could not find any!

If I would have attained the kingdom of God, I would have passed the most important test one will ever encounter. Compared to this test, all other tests are worth less than nothing. Only if you pass this test has your life been successful. This is the test of your character or the “Test of Life.” Believe me, whether we like it or not, the Lord is testing us all! Having an impeccable character is far more valuable than winning the Powerball Lotto! It is the absolute prerequisite to attaining God consciousness.

Daniel Rosenblist – (near-death.com)

I highly encourage you to check out these testimonies in full, as well as research these in general. Another informative and enlightening account is by Howard Pittman, a Christian minister who actually realized that all of his preaching meant nothing in the eyes of God, simply because he was doing it as a self-preservation. Very detailed and harrowing look into what we think makes a good, successful person, as opposed to the reality.

Even if one is an atheist and doesn’t believe in God, these are still key lessons to live in life. Although, in my humble opinion, the “belief in God” should at least be considered. After all, perhaps “God” as we assume the term to mean, isn’t correct. Perhaps “God” simply means “Love”. If you know and live in love, even if you’re an atheist, then you still believe in God, whether you realize it or not.

The below links also gives us an insight into what a lot of people thought on their deathbed without having a near death experience. Taking into account the way they lived their life and the things they wished they would have done differently.

Hint: None of them ever say, “I wish I had worked harder.”

Notice how none of these life reviews ever mention how well they did on those tests in school. Or “congratulations on getting that promotion”. Or, “Wow! All that money you made was great!”

Same with the deathbed confessions.

Most of the insights from both of these avenues is that it’s all about how we treat each other. Or how little time we spent with each other and the regret that arises from that.

It reminds me of this incredibly sad, but relatable song:

My child arrived just the other day
He came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
And he was talkin’ ‘fore I knew it, and as he grew
He’d say, “I’m gonna be like you, dad
You know I’m gonna be like you”

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home dad?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then son
You know we’ll have a good time then

My son turned ten just the other day
He said, “Thanks for the ball, dad, come on let’s play
Can you teach me to throw”, I said, “Not today
I got a lot to do”, he said, “That’s okay”
And he walked away but his smile never dimmed
And said, “I’m gonna be like him, yeah
You know I’m gonna be like him”

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home son?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then, son
You know we’ll have a good time then

Well, he came home from college just the other day
So much like a man I just had to say
“Son, I’m proud of you, can you sit for a while?”
He shook his head and said with a smile
“What I’d really like, dad, is to borrow the car keys
See you later, can I have them please?”

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home son?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then, son
You know we’ll have a good time then

I’ve long since retired, my son’s moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said, “I’d like to see you if you don’t mind”
He said, “I’d love to, dad, if I can find the time
You see my new job’s a hassle and kids have the flu
But it’s sure nice talking to you, dad
It’s been sure nice talking to you”

And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me
He’d grown up just like me
My boy was just like me

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home son?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then, son
You know we’ll have a good time then

Yes, at the moment, we are tied to societal rules of having a job in order to “make a living”. At least until we step away from this man-made (“man-made”? Some people would refute that…) heirarchy and start working together.

Until then, our main purpose is clear. The way to success, the only success that matters, is to treat each other with love and compassion. Everyday that we strive to become better, kinder people, no matter what arena of life we’re in, we will be successful. And we will be building an even more successful future for the Earth and humankind.

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.
