About Zen Benefiel

Zen is the curator for UfologyPRSS with a penchant for asking questions and presenting poignant ponderings.

Cosmic Conundrum – Who Am I?

Who are you? Really… Who are you? This workbook is an expository guide to facilitate multidimensional awareness. Are you a spiritual being having a human experience? Would you like to wake up the human to the spiritual experience? A point of perspection (introspection/perception) dances in the balance of the seer’s vision.

Have you suffered from the limited experiences and thinking of others? Is it possible that you might have galactic origins from elsewhere in the Milky Way?

Many are awakening to the potential of galactic citizenry and/or spiritual connectedness beyond the notion of reincarnation. I can help you engage contact experiences and garner opportunities for developing your personal abilities and/or ‘gifts.’

This psychospiritual coursework is designed to bridge worlds, build relationships across dimensions and transform lives. What you may think you know about extraterrestrials, guardian angels and spiritual beings will be challenged as you explore the pages of this book.

Points of view differ regarding our origins and the development of human beings through their ‘dominion’ on earth. What if there was more to the story that we haven’t even explored yet because we’ve been too terrestrially focused in our ‘outer’ living environment? What is your natural state of being? Is there more? Would you like to find out?

Clearing the cobwebs out of the soular mind begins with questioning the very foundation of one’s belief system. It doesn’t hurt at all and it does lead to deeper understanding. This path is not for the timid, but your courage will definitely be rewarded.

A great companion book is StuBBing My TOE on Purpose – A Seminal View of Consciousness, Cosmology and the Congruence of Science and Spirituality, available on Amazon and CreateSpace.

Author Zen Benefiel offers a healthy dose of spiritual wisdom for an “out-of-this-world” reader experience. Some dynamics which make this book a helpful guide are the author’s out-of-body experiences, his education and unique intelligence, combined with (but not limited to) an aptitude for research, diverse content synthesis and organization, complete with workbook opportunities for reflection on the provided material.

Zen embraces psychological, scientific, intuitive and mystical explanations, offering practical exercises for meditation, releasing emotional blockages, mentorship, deepening the experience of “flow,” and more. Where relevant, Zen gives simple and effective definitions of spiritual terms for comprehension, and methodical processes for readers to achieve similar results with the suggested exercises. The author’s knowledge of mental-emotional transformational methodologies makes for well-explored and deeply penetrating lessons on the self-help topics.

Woven by the common thread of his mystical experiences, Zen continually provides insightful logic regarding the ultimately inevitable connections among science and spirituality, connecting within, and galactic citizenry. Meaningful personal stories from the author’s physical life experience are steeped in wisdom. That said; the author’s emotional vulnerability is a great asset to humanizing the mystical experiences he lives out.

Zen’s authentic sharing creates a good foundation for us (the readers) to contemplate and realize the unique reality to which we have embraced and have been exposed. The book reveals compelling evidence that we can each go beyond our normal waking consciousness to connect in higher and finer ways. The material provided ties into an overall cosmic picture, complex enough to stretch our ideas of reality and cosmic responsibility while, at the same time, practical enough to not lose accessibility in the lessons offered.

Ethereal experiences are occasionally scoffed at due to popular misconceptions of an ethereal person’s resulting incongruence with normal reality (aka, “airy-fairy”). However, sound reasoning and pragmatic advice ensure that readers like us can learn from the offerings even if we aren’t able to relate the material in its entirety. For example, Zen offers practical guidance on the most basic and often overlooked necessity of balancing and resolving our emotions. Since such healthy (and practical) behaviors aren’t yet common sense for mankind, we could clearly argue that not only is a person’s reality highly relative to the beholder, but reality is also highly relative to how many people are beholding it. In other words, common sense is relative to what a group considers common. Even then, a high commonality doesn’t necessarily indicate truth.

The book finishes with a long anticipated, full-blown explanation of the author’s involvement with the Ashtar Command and galactic citizenry at large. It completes with thought-provoking inquiries that are artfully designed, not to coerce, but to make the reader ponder their own spiritual and galactic responsibilities. At minimum, the existing platform from which the author invites the reader to make positive considerations for spiritual living is a love-based one. If you are a fan of the Ashtar Command and the Celestial Alliances, you’ll like this book even better. Regardless of what you believe or experience, this versatile book can be of benefit to you.

Curious? Check it out.

Secret Space Program… What are we to think?

There has been speculation about a secret space program for decades. Some information and proponents (whistleblowers) have entered the Ufology scene on many occasions over the years. It seem the debate is reaching epic proportions now with the various ‘experts’ in the field.

I have to profess I do not know Corey Goode, but I do David Wilcock. I’ve known the latter for over a decade and I find his sharing of information seems to be solely based on regurgitation rather than sincere research. He sure has the attention of a lot of folks, but is it a genuine and sincere representation of the facts that are ‘out there’ for us all to discover?

I’ve observed Andrew Basiago for some years now, always a bit uneasy in my perception of him, paralleled with what I sense with Randy Kramer. I love to believe stuff, though, so my spidey sense may or may not be correct. I tend to trust it although I don’t always have outright proof to back it up.

That being said, I’ve known Richard Dolan and Michael Salla for a while; Richard and few years and some time in personal conversations that were relevant as well as Michael, whom I’ve known for over a decade. We greet each other by name and pleasantries always. Both have done their fair share of research and have intelligent if not brilliant minds.

Their personalities are juxtaposed by their gullible and suspicious natures, it seems. Their professional admiration and respect for each other allows some interesting dialog about this [SSP] particular subject recently. There appears to be sufficient magnetizm to the subject to polarize many and, imho, perhaps manages to distract us from and obfuscate the truth.

It seemed to start with Bill Ryan’s bold statement and video a few months back. I also know Bill to be a relatively level-headed individual whom I’ve known about as long as Michael Salla. I met Bill and Kerry Cassidy during the early days of Project Camelot (no longer partners and the last time I saw Kerry she seemed out of control paranoid) during a conversation with Ralph Ring at the IUFOC in Laughlin in 2007. I didn’t know who they were at the time, but seemed to be lurking waiting to speak to Ralph, so we invited them to sit with us.

Nowadays there are many factions playing out in the field of Ufology and few of them, other than a few true professionals, focus on congruent and/or consistent threads of information that come from different sources, as a sign of potential reality in truth. Individuals with non-verifiable information and/or documentation that is only validated by one or two individuals still remains a bit suspicious, but does not make it false.

Richard Dolan has always seemed to be a consummate professional, as well as Michael Salla. Both have responded differently and have engaged an interesting public dialog, Richard in his usual straightforward nature and Michael sharing what he believes to be validation. It seems they both are getting extra press as well as the whistleblowers.

I tend to wonder just how any ‘leaks’ of information would really benefit the public. The programs are perhaps undeniable and, at best, spoken of only in passing interest but certainly not available as any transparent program as of yet. The public may not be able to handle the truth, frankly. It does provide for some very interesting debate and distraction from our daily travails, though.

I wonder if there is yet something more at play, beyond the ‘secrecy’ and more in the open for anyone to experience. We all are familiar with the best hiding places, right? That would be right out in the open and so incredulous to most that it is easily and quickly dismissed by nearly everyone except a few.

I think Ruth Montgomery and others wrote about such things decades ago and their topics still don’t see the light of day in hardly any organized Ufology events. As a final thought, I wonder how the secret space program got thrown into Ufology in the first place.

And the debate goes on…

Alien Agendas and Anal Probes

Aliens and Anal Probes – Jason Colavito

www.jasoncolavito.com/aliens-and-anal-probes.html

On the other hand, author Zen Benefiel self-published a book called Alien Agendas and Anal Probes (2014) that promised to investigate “the science behind the anal probes” and what these probes can tell us about why the aliens are really here. But his book isn’t a history so much as New Age-influenced fringe speculation, so it is of limited use in peeling back the layers of the abduction experience.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Jason was gracious enough to include my book. I think he missed the main point, though. The science behind the ‘probe’ is stated fairly simply and succinctly, probably too simply for peering eyes to grok. Moments after having the experience I was reflecting on why it happens.

The first thing that popped into my head was not some New Age influence speculation. I’m a math and science buff, intelligent and investigative beyond most. Math and science are so present in the constructs of the universe, beginning with the foundation of sound and light condensing, or lower the vibratory rate, into form.

Advanced races that can travel across time and space are familiar with the natural laws and order of the universe, so they are well aware of the effects of adjusting frequencies. If you consider the known quantities of information about the nature of frequencies and the subtle adjustments that produce amazing changes in our bodies and environment, it just makes sense that the same adjustments can be made with technology applied to our bodies.

The simple science regarding the anal probe is that the sphincter is an end point, as well as the genitals, of the peroneal nerve. The nerve is directly connected to the spinal nerve which, according to the ancient arts, is the path of Kundalini Serpent Fire when it is ignited. So, we can ignite this Fire (Divine as it is) with practice AND it can be accelerated by procedures.

What happens when the vibratory rate is adjusted by such measures? Usually an orgasm is the first thing. That’s why the mistaken idea of sexual experimentation comes, no pun intended. We are so oppressed in regard to considering or discussion anything of a sexual nature that folks haven’t been able to transcend their paradigms. In time, we will.

So, thanks Jason, I appreciate the opportunity to address the subject again.

Luba was reading one of my books just moments ago on this Sunday morning, coffee in hand, when she burst forth through tarmac toward the sun again. Okay, couldn’t help the Moody reference. Alien Agendas and Anal Probes is what she was reading, then announcing with every ounce of surety in her that she was shaken to the core and this was exactly what she had been looking for… in Tom Campbell, in Kundalini, all the books and videos, everything… that this was the core of our existence – why we are here and what we are doing.

Farbeit for me to resist the opportunity to share her excitement, and my amazement at her discovery and how much it meant to her as a keystone experience. She thought everyone needs to read this and see/feel for themselves how much sense it makes.

And so the excerpt:

We might see it as God dwelling in man again. I eventually understood it as cosmic consciousness condensing into form and becoming aware of it.

The result, according to the narrator, is a sense of oneness and willingness to operate free from intellectual pursuits driven by the desire to dominate the environment. Each individual soul has purpose, like a thread in the tapestry of life that is just as important as any other thread. The beauty of the tapestry is dependent on the threads, no matter the color, diameter or length.

When all the threads become aware of the tapestry, it becomes alive and whole – able to be viewed. Individuals are like fractals of the tapestry, able to contain the original yet finding form, fit and function within it as their own filaments combine to form the whole.

New Hope with The UFO Disclosure Advocates

Recently Dr. Joseph Burkes interviewed Dr. Lisa Galarneau & Russ Calka from The UFO Disclosure Advocates on IRN Radio. It’s worth sharing and providing information about The Disclosure Advocates.

UFO Disclosure Advocates Make Strongest Closing Argument Yet!

Monday, May 8th, 2017 at 9 pm EDT, EPIC Voyages Radio’s resident Medical Doctor, Dr. Joseph Burkes M.D. leads a discussion with Disclosure Advocates Dr. Lisa Galarneau and Russ Calka about the government actors who actively play a role in misdirecting the public about the existence of extraterrestrial life and the black projects assigned to studying the UFO phenomenon.

LISA GALARNEAU

Dr. Lisa Galarneau | Do You Believe Disclosure is the Key Issue of Our Time?Lisa Galarneau is She considers herself a socio-cultural anthropologist, futurist, US Army veteran, and experiencer since childhood, Lisa is committed to illuminating the truth about our extraterrestrial and extradimensional visitors as well as challenging the truth embargo.

Her employment background includes stints in cryptology, telegram singing, and commercial anthropology, which she currently works in today. When earning her PhD, Lisa studied the anthropology of online gamers, traveling to thirteen different countries to study behaviors in different environments.

We Believe Disclosure Is The Key Issue Of Our Time

“I have always taken it for granted that contact with extraterrestrial life is looming on the horizon for humanity. As an optimist, I tend to see this as something that would be full of possibility, and indeed the very thing we need as a society in these perilous times, rather than something to fear. “- Dr. Lisa Galarneau

RUSS CALKA

Russ Calka | Do You Believe Disclosure is the Key Issue of Our Time?Russ has been fascinated by the UFO topic since childhood and is an impassioned leader in the Disclosure movement. Previously an active member of the Disclosure Lobby, Russ has now taken the reins for the U.S.- based Disclosure effort.

Disclosure Will Advance Our Development

“Convinced by overwhelming evidence of an extraterrestrial intelligence engaging the human race since 10 years old, I have come to the final conclusion that the ONLY thing that will save this planet from self-destruction and and allow the Human species to advance our development amongst the stars is the formal acknowledgment of an Extraterrestrial presence. It’s called #Disclosure. It’s the law. It’s desperately needed.” – Russell Calka ​

The Disclosure Activists Manifesto (of course there is one)

The Disclosure Activists

We know without a doubt that our planet is being engaged by offworld civilizations that are extraterrestrial or extradimensional in nature. As an activist group, we are committed to uniting various research groups and organizations in ​order to get this story out to mainstream audiences.

We stand for the following:

  1. We do not support any truth embargo enforced by government, press and media, nor the scientific establishment. We know that vast amounts of evidence are routinely ignored or covered up by these organizations.
  2. We do not believe that there have been efforts to contact offworld civilizations (i.e. SETI) that have yielded no results. We do not accept that our space agencies, like NASA, are ignorant of these encounters with off-world civilizations.
  3. We do not accept arguments suggesting there is no proof of this activity nor do we accept ridicule or stigma when discussing these serious topics.
  4. We are convinced that our planet and civilizations have been engaged by offworld civilizations for millennia. We accept the extraterrestrial hypothesis as valid in many cases and while we consider terrestrial explanations ​for all things, we do not privilege terrestrial hypotheses only.
  5. We know that a variety of governments, militaries, and other organizations have had contact experiences that they have kept veiled in secrecy. We know that there have been recent efforts by government agencies (like the CIA),whistleblowers, and leaks to disclose the offworld presence, but as of yet, no world authority has given confirmation.This must change.
  6. We understand that our offworld visitors hail from numerous star systems and races and that our contact experiences with these others have been both negative and extremely positive. We know that Disclosure of the offworld intelligences engaging our planet and civilization could mean a quantum leap forward for humanity. This is both possible and desirable.
  7. We are aware that there are numerous unacknowledged and suppressed technologies that have been revealed by these interactions with offworld visitors and we know that some (e.g. free energy) could greatly benefit humanity.
  8. We attest that government truth and transparency are critical to the success of any democracy, and we have a right to know the truth about our offworld visitors. We believe that citizen resistance and effort are critical at this time in our evolution and a critical part of consciousness improvements to our species. – http://www.disclosureactivists.org/

The State of Ufology Today

What do you think about the state of Ufology today? Does it meet up to your expectations? Sadly, it falls short for nearly every serious investigator. It falls even shorter for experiencers who wish the topics of discussion to be more focused on real interactions.

What has happened to what once seemed to be a burgeoning field of study for and with folks who’ve had some kind of experience or at least witnessed what has often been termed ‘UFOs’?

Some years ago, in a presentation in England, Bob Dean spoke of the fact that ‘they’ are no longer ‘UFOs’ because we know what they are… visitors in various types of interstellar and perhaps interdimensional craft. Paul Hellyer, retired Canadian Defense Minister, speaks openly about his knowledge from his prior position and current relationships.

Banal Banter

So many today banter about the past; opinions and research that have been so trampled they have lost their appeal to serious folks. You might be one of them. Unfortunately, the attraction to the curious has helped to develop an industry that supports speculators and storytellers as much as real information sharing. In the thirty plus years the author has been involved there have been at least three cycles of activity. Stephen Bassett does his best to keep it real as he continues to lobby for disclosure, but is he involved because it is a lifestyle, passion, or a way to earn a living and travel? Dr. Steven Greer continues to speak about his contact techniques and the familiar message he admits to receiving as well, but is he legit or just playing the crowd?

Each cycle starts with some real information, a new breakthrough or personage that suddenly decides to share their story. Then the attention gets distracted to old information that’s rehashed and then on to some sci-fi encounter that has something to do with a conspiracy. Whether it is a government coverup of interaction with aliens or a secret space program, the process repeats about every 10 to 12 years with new people. We’re due for a new spin. We all oppose deceivers, right?

Money for Nothing

What began in 1991 as the International UFO Congress in Tucson, Arizona has become a business venture. It spawned several others over the years, some doing better than others. They all tend to follow the pattern shared above. The better the marketing and/or story, the more intriguing the conspiracy or mystery, numbers flock and those numbers mean dollars. In loose surveys over the last decade or so, real experiencers and serious folk express the need for discussing the non-human intelligences and communication that reveals a common thread toward learning how to live in harmony with natural law and order, like the universe.

Is there a theme to all the communication including crop circles, experiences of sensory input still needing a language to articulate coherently, telepathic and virtual visitations? There doesn’t seem to be any disagreement with the aforementioned ‘message’ about learning to live together. That is, as people getting along, the entire gamut from planet (its elements) to living creatures with and without ‘consciousness’ or what we express as being sentient. It naturally occurs in the evolution of sentient beings, every planetary civilization capable of star travel has learned it.

Who Goes There?

Believe it or not, there are humans who have learned it as well, nearly every one knows of interdimensional as well as interstellar capabilities. They cut through all the Ufology industry stuff, usually by non-engagement, and look for other ways of more ethically-driven ways to gather. The events around the world today, as off-center as they are, still bring many folks who don’t know where else to find kindred folk. The names have been changed to protect the innocent and maintain anonymity so employment wouldn’t be jeopardized.

More recently there have been great efforts by an organization that was endorsed by Dr. Edgar Mitchell as one of his final acts to continue his work in consciousness studies. Through their surveys, which are anonymous, over 4,000 participants have shared their personal experiences. Now we’re getting somewhere with FREE information. The data from these surveys is available and getting some attention. Rey Hernandez heads up the organization. Perhaps it will give folks encouragement to speak more publicly, somewhat anonymously. Rey certainly isn’t shy.

The general sense in this ‘free’ population is that things are progressing toward a beneficial end. Statistically over time the perception of events even changes toward the beneficial. It seems that as consciousness develops, the perception of events can drastically change as the experiencer progresses. Long-term contact tends to result in a vastly different understanding, congruent with the theme above. Hopefully the Ufology industry will recognize folks with integrity and take a chance on elevating the conversation.

Cosmic Comedy

In other areas, still cyclical and spiraling up the experience peak, Grant Cameron speaks and writes on the patterns of contact and the style and type associated with each ’round’ of the cycle. Is his research authentic and objective or putting a new spin on old information? Richard Dolan has become an expert in the history and he expresses an intellectual curiosity toward an optimistic quest of intentions and potential interspecie work. Is their research authentic and objective or just putting a new spin on old information?

Although it’s talked about religiously in some circles, the general public doesn’t seem to understand there have been those living among us for millennia. Even those who do admit the possibility or even reality, they don’t engage it any further. I find that suspect, or maybe a bit fearful of revealing their worst fears of prejudice toward others. Are we really learning how to get along or just hide our deceptive separative notions better?

It seems that the world continues to spiral out of control in our efforts to control our path. Many individuals are awakening to an understanding of holistic systems that permeate our lives. If consciousness evolves and the thoughtmosphere expands, what is the critical mass that would begin to right the ship, ‘our’ relationship that is. The ability to manage machinery with a mixture of galvanic response, psychokinesis and telepathy is just one example of understanding universal law and order, using built-in features of our very nature. It is currently way out of our ability to be disciplined to that degree. We like to argue too much.

Conspiracy theories always have an argumentative nature. Debates run high amongst those who believe in them, real or imagined. They take away from the more pressing need for transforming our way of doing business and educating our children on planet Earth. They give us a way to consider and discern, seeking the sensation within that reveals their truth or not. I hear that a lot from the grapevine, the contact underground that Dr. Joseph Burkes has engaged for a couple of decades.

More internet radio hosts are exploring the grapevine, giving us more information to analyze and discern. Randy Maugans and Chris Holly have been doing their own thing for a while with Off Planet Radio. Inception Radio Network has also done a lot toward contributing to the effort, but we have to use our discernment still; the loudest mouths still get too much time. I’m sure there many more. I’ve got to go to work now…

 

Phoenix Lights – Celebrating 20 Years

Probably the most notable person that keeps the event alive is Dr. Lynne Kitei, the force behind the documentary ‘Phoenix Lights.’ She is a regular at the Harkin’s Theater in Scottsdale, Arizona in mid-March every year. With the help of many actual witnesses, the Phoenix Lights documentary is rich with evidence that ‘we are not alone.’

Excerpt: On March 13, 1997 something extra-ordinary happened in the skies over Phoenix & across Arizona. On that clear evening a parade of low flying, mile wide V-shaped arrays of orbs & craft glided silently overhead, attracting the attention of at least 10,000 people. This is the detailed account of that evening & the ensuing cover up of what is now being hailed as the largest mass sighting of UFOs in modern times – but there is much more to the story.

Dr. Kitei and Steve Lantz have crafted a story for the history books, with real-life witnesses that number into the hundreds. It is estimated that thousands of witnesses exist, many of them remain silent for fear of ridicule. The brave and courageous witnesses that have come forth make for a compelling pile of evidence, even without the physical proof, that we are not alone.

What has happened since that eventful night, the apparent cover-up and the relentless efforts of then City Councilwoman Francis Emma Barwood to get to the truth? Governor Fife Symington scoffed at the event initially, showing off an alien-costumed cohort at a press conference. Years later his story was much different. It is funny how things can change when public opinion is not so important.

Fife recounts his experience, “It was enormous and inexplicable,” he said in an exclusive interview from his home in Phoenix. “Who knows where it came from? A lot of people saw it, and I saw it too.” Symington says he saw a large triangular “craft of unknown origin” with lights, moving slowly. “It was dramatic. And it couldn’t have been flares because it was too symmetrical,” he says. “It had a geometric outline, a constant shape.”

Perhaps it was the bank fraud conviction that nullified his actual testimony of the event and made it less important in the public eye. So many witnesses remain baffled, not by the sighting, by how little attention has been paid to such a phenomenal event. Dr. Lynne speaks and shares clips and photos at many UFO events around the world, but she seems to be overshadowed by the sensational stories of those who may likely be intentional distractions to the truth.

What we are left with are obvious signs that something literally out of this world was present that night. What were ‘they’ doing? Was it a test to see how the public reacted or responded to a visible craft, large enough to leave no mistake about it? There were paradoxical and polarized results, from evidence of scrambled jets to complete denial of anything happening. Humans in power are fickle, evidently.

I, as an available interested party and personal friend, was present for many of the interviews conducted at Village Labs by Jim Dilettoso and Michael Tanner in the days and weeks following the event. The stories were consistent in what witnesses saw; the shape of the craft, the immense size, the silence and the apparent ‘particles of light’ darting around inside the actual lights as they passed overhead. The accounts were too similar and witnesses had no contact with each other prior to their interviews.

Village Labs was also a hot-spot for UFOlogists at the time. Photo and video analysis was a forte’ of the duo, Dilettoso and Tanner. Jim had appeared on numerous TV shows regarding his analysis of popular ‘evidence’ provided by many from around the world, including many still on the ‘circuit’ today. Guys like Lt. Colonel (USAF Ret.) Wendelle Stevens and Jaime Maussan were regulars. Jim and Michael were instrumental in the sharing of information with Dr. Lynne as she developed her documentary files.

Something that Jim revealed to me was that there were actually two ships that visited the Valley of the Sun that night, one that traveled along I-17 and another that traveled south following Scottsdale Rd. That information isn’t shared in the documentary, but the single mass-sighting is certainly enough to keep our attention. So many witnesses, so little attention by the media and researchers still.

The question remains, “What was the purpose for ‘showing up’ in Phoenix?”

Oldies But Goodies in Ufology

Has Anything Really Changed?

So many years ago Mike Wallace interviewed Donald Keyhoe about UFOs and Government coverups. The recommendations of the original focus group to study the UFO phenomena was to reveal everything that had been found to date to the public, then move forward with continued and deeper investigation of the phenomena. Listen in…

Only a short time later…

George Van Tassel, an airport operator and businessman, was interviewed about his contact with ‘others’ in 1964. So, Donald’s reluctance to discuss the ‘contactee’ aspects of the UFO phenomena in his interview, although some had indeed happened, is ‘trumped’ by these experiences of Mr. Van Tassel.

A decade or so later…

The Brits have been a leader, of sorts, in pretty much everything that involved global expansion. They’ve been doing it for centuries, so it is only logical that the next event was aimed at them. Well, it was a British television station that was interrupted with an important message from an off-planet source.

What have we learned?

The original recommendation to share the information with the public has still not been honored, the military as tight-lipped as ever. It makes it easier for folks to create stories and find an audience in those who delight in any information, true or false. Nonetheless, the Disclosure Movement is continuing to grow through the efforts of Bassett and Greer among others…

There seems to be a tremendous upsurge in the idea that disclosure isn’t necessary. There are enough folks who either claim contact experiences or have evidence enough in how they frame their own questions of incredulity that the believability factor is higher than usual. The Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research in Extraterrestrial Encounters even has anonymous surveys that provide the most incredible credible information available about contact experiences.

Perhaps in the next few years or so the acceptability of contact experiences will grow enough to be included in the major ufology gatherings around the world. Some at least have ‘contactee’ opportunities for sharing, but they seem to be more about hypnotherapy needs than direct contact. Make sure to check those events out over in the event scroller on UFOlogyPRSS.

CONTACT NETWORK HISTORY PROJECT

A Close Encounter of the Third Kind with Love.

Joseph Burkes MD 2015

It has been said that consciousness is the “golden thread” that ties us to UFO intelligence. After all if the ET hypothesis is correct and UFOs are an extraterrestrial manifestation, then we are going to be very different from them. We don’t share a common history, language or biological evolution, but what both humans and ETs have in common is that we are awake and are aware of that wakefulness.

Perhaps we can share states of being that come from that clear quiet place that we call consciousness itself. For those of us who have met the visitors face to face, there exists the possibility of sharing a sense of peace or joy. Although it may sound corny, as this narrative suggests we may also be able to communicate with, and share love.

“COMING OUT” OF THE UFO CLOSET

My initial enthusiastic support for CSETI ‘s contact efforts led me to a rather daring action. Some would call it foolish. I decided to set up a CSETI information booth at the American Public Health Association’s annual meeting held in Washington DC in November of 1992. I was accompanied by my medical group partner “Dr. Daniel.” He was in our Los Angeles CSETI CE-5 Initiative Working Group.

The APHA’s meeting draws about 10,000 health professionals whose political views are more to the left than mainstream medicine’s views. The APHA has historically championed the health rights of women, ethic minorities and workers. During the first few years of my medical career I had actively participated in the Occupational Health and Safety section of the APHA. In 1979 I was co-founder of the Los Angeles Committee on Occupational Safety and Health, a coalition of health care and legal professionals that endeavored through education and advocacy to make the workplace safer.

WORKING THE CROWD

At a beautiful new convention center in the nation’s capital, under a royal blue banner embroidered with the slogan, “ One Universe, One People!” Daniel and I “worked” the conference participants. A small TV monitor played dramatic footage of UFOs, while I called out to passersby, “Would you like to see a UFO video?” Apparently quite a few did, over 250 nurses, doctors and administrators watched the film clips and chatted with us during the 3-day conference. About forty signed up for more information and the bravest shared their personal stories of sightings and other contact experiences.

A CLOSE ENCOUNTER OF THE THIRD KIND WITH LOVE

A Ph.D. professor of nursing gave the most impressive report to me. From her convention badge I identified her as a faculty member from a major university. She watched the videos for a few minutes and then allowed me to interview her about her personal contact experience.

Some 7 years before she reportedly had a Close Encounter of the Third Kind. After nightfall while camping with her fiancée, her tent was filled with a very bright light. All around the campsite she could hear footsteps. Apparently from prior encounters she immediately realized that she was having a contact experience. The professor reported not being able to move but was fully awake. She could not stir her friend that was sound asleep. One humanoid stuck his head into the tent. By her description the being was the typical so called “Gray,” big head with wrap around eyes. My nursing colleague told me that she was happily excited and frightened at the same time.

The being quickly retreated but she could see his shadow and those of several others on the walls of her tent that was illuminated by the campfire light. She told me that she sent out the thought, “ I love you.” In a flash she felt a forceful burst of electric type energy. The sensation surged through her body from the top of her head down to the tip of her toes. The beings left her campsite and the encounter was over.

There are on the exhibit floor, under the bright lights with hundreds of booths and thousands of participants around us, she had described the experience simply, matter of fact, with just a touch of amazement. I was a perfect stranger to her and yet she was willing to share her recollections of an intimate contact with what she believed were non-human beings. I described to her the ambitious goals of CSETI’s CE-5 Initiative. She listened politely but chose not to sign up for more information. After all she was a professor at a major university and the notoriety of being a contact experiencer might cause her considerable harm. She wished me well in my crusade and walked away, disappearing into the crowd.

About the author: Joseph Burkes MD volunteered as a Working Group Coordinator for the CE-5 Initiative from 1992 to 1998. He has continued to study the flying saucer phenomenon working with MUFON and the Peruvian contact network now called Rahma. He is co-author of the book “Paths to Contact” edited by Jeff Becker. Dr Burkes retired from the Southern California Permanente Medical Group after thirty years service in 2008. He is a board certified internal medicine physician and is licensed to practice in California.

Compatible History

and response from the curator….

Dr. Burkes knows far too well that the consciousness we call ET is so connected to what we also call ‘unconditional love’ that it seems surreptitious that others would engage in fear-based conspiracy theories, imho. The frequency response of such deep levels of love can initially feel so intense that they indeed are a bit frightening; the unfamiliar sense of being totally and unconditionally ‘loved’ by high-frequency beings.

We ‘see’ them in many ways, from humanoid-looking (most appeasing) to reptilian (most challenging) and even non-bipedal creatures as well. It’s been said that we/they present themselves according to the viewer’s capacity or willingness to see. A lot of the current focus, though, is still on the lower vibratory realms, the research on encounters, sightings and such. Bridging the professional realms, like Joe did with the APHA, is critical and I believe mandatory today.

International Association for Near Death Studies

I had the opportunity to do the same a few years ago, with the International Association for Near-Death Studies. I applied for a presentation spot at their 2010 annual conference in Denver and got the nod, unexpectedly. After some scheduling rearrangements (initially having an hour, then a half-hour, then being put on a panel with two others and given 20 minutes as I stepped on stage) I felt a little uncomfortable with such demands that I felt were a bit unprofessional. Still, I was there and on stage.

I had a feeling things were going to go awry, so I didn’t put my powerpoint together until during the speaker just before us. It turned out to be perfectly timed… I came in just over the 20 minutes they allotted. During my presentation to the clinicians and medical professionals I introduced the notion of how the OBE’s, NDEs and STEs were all related and easily lended themselves to accessing what we call ETs and more, including cosmic consciousness.

I noticed some shades drawn with some of the audience but one individual in particular who was a long standing expert in the field, P.M. Atwater, was smiling from ear to ear and nodding continuously as I broached the delicate bridge. I knew I was going to hedge the edge of acceptability with this particular crowd, yet afterward there were several who congratulated me on bridging those worlds. No one to date had attempted to do so at the IANDS annual events.

Btw, I wasn’t invited back, either. 🙁 Still, the information was shared. Having multiple close encounters throughout my life has been both a blessing and a curse. I’m blessed with a greater understanding of the ‘non-humans;’ their perspective on universal law and order. I’m cursed with the misunderstanding and projections of others who are unable to hear from within.

Keep up the great work, Joe!

Here’s the video if anyone is interested…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlvkmP3eZkE

Dr. Burkes and I had a great conversation a couple of months ago on Inception Radio, too… https://youtu.be/ozQ-HH4jXGU

Arrival – How do we communicate?

Arrival’s Plot: Linguistics professor Louise Banks (Amy Adams) leads an elite team of investigators when gigantic spaceships touch down in 12 locations around the world. As nations teeter on the verge of global war, Banks and her crew must race against time to find a way to communicate with the extraterrestrial visitors. Hoping to unravel the mystery, she takes a chance that could threaten her life and quite possibly all of mankind.

Hollywood Reporter:How refreshing to watch an alien contact movie in which no cities are destroyed or monuments toppled, and no adversarial squabbling distracts the human team from the challenges of their complex interspecies encounter. Anchored by an internalized performance from Amy Adams rich in emotional depth, this is a grownup sci-fi drama that sustains fear and tension while striking affecting chords on love and loss.

So what does this have to do with real visitors, our star families as some call them?

The on-going saga of First Contact, even Disclosure, has been presented through so many channels and mediums in the last decades; books, crop circles, movies, tv shows and more. Yet, there is another aspect to this picture that few even consider, except those who are in the midst of it. I’m referring to the continual engagement of non-linear and non-local intelligence with humans and would-be humans.

Why do I say would-be humans? Because there are those who’ve been seeded here for some time, a few at a time, that try to be human but grapple with things beyond human. Confused? Try being one who, since childhood, has been a part of another reality alongside the one most people experience on a daily basis, parallel and even woven into it synchronistically. Acknowledging that ‘something else’ is going on brings labels and projections in spite of practical performance, academic and athletic excellence.

The movie ARRIVAL demonstrates this conundrum through the language barrier with the visitors, who arrive in 12 locations simultaneously with no fanfare or aggression of any kind. As usual, the pundits jump to conclusions and go into military mode where everything outside ‘normal’ command and control structure is perceived as a threat and prepared for accordingly. Contrary to perception, there is no threat at all. In fact, the opposite is true. We become a threat to ourselves and the notification that we have the ultimate weapon is given.

The weapon turns out to be language. The visitor’s language is far superior and has reached the data storage capacity for volumes of information to be displayed in a single circular ink blot. Imagine if we are able to receive data in such a way, only we get it through light pulses, just like data being sent through glass tubes now… fiber optics. We know light pulses can contain zettabytes or even a googolplex of information. Our brains and bodies function through light pulses traveling the speed of thought (841 trillion miles per second perhaps) across our personal neural nets.

Humans tend to truncate data streams before getting the whole picture. We experience or listen to respond rather than be engaged or immersed into something bigger than we can imagine yet have moments of its reality nevertheless. Next-level humans, those with the capacity for engagement beyond past systems, are well aware of this non-linear and non-local method of information exchange. To those, the universe speaks in every moment as eloquently as any master communicator and more… it’s visceral; every fiber of our being is engaged.

Why can’t everyone experience this? It’s largely do to choice… and fear of the unknown. As in the movie, when things were suddenly shifted and no one knew what was going to happen next, the prime characters chose to remain in a state of childlike curiosity and explored possibilities without the threat of fear. They ‘knew’ something more was happening. We, as humans BEing, can experience that same place, too. It starts by taking a conscious breath, perhaps many, and being in the present moment.

Now this may all sound like some spiritual gobbledigook. I assure you it is not. It is a practice of patience and perseverance… the present holds no past or future so multiple dimensions open as non-linear and non-local expressions of space/time. Non-linear communication, spoken of by Louise as well, is the preferred method of universe communication. It happens across multiple tracks as well…. dreamtime, visions and even waking consciousness when one is still. These kinds of communication are commonplace to the experience, rare if at all to the reporter and most sages on stage today.

The thing about experiencing these kinds of activity is the near inability to articulate it and, when attempts are made, it sounds like a bunch of jumbled thoughts and the person is labeled and summarily dismissed as some kind of lunatic or unbalanced personality. I’ve had to deal with that in my younger years, including some time spent on a psychiatric ward as a result of not being able to articulate my experience clearly enough to create a comprehensive expression that was easily understood. Today, it’s vastly different.

Back to the movie… Once the communication methodology and understanding is at least minimally in place, the revelation that ‘language’ is the ultimate weapon is presented. It is SO true, especially ‘how’ we use language can either create or destroy relationships – the only thing that matters in the dynamics of harmony among people and planet. We tend to divide and disperse rather than coalesce and coagulate. So, if one were to consider the notion of harmony among people and planet from an off-planet viewpoint that arrived only to assist… what, how, who might be involved to share their messages?

One last consideration that I found to be significant in the overall ‘real’ experience of multidimensional non-linear and non-local engagements. Once the ‘message’ was received and the ‘threat’ was removed to the extent that communication between governments across the world was restored and even evolved into a new order of trust, what happens next? The craft that had basically shown up ‘out of nowhere’ returned to their space. They simply melded into ‘clouds’ and disappeared.

What that might say for our current day experiences, eh?

I had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Joseph Burkes on Inception Radio recently, discussing how we communicate and what is communicated with us. You’ll hear about a conversation I had with Dr. Edgar Mitchell about his experience with a non-human intelligence while descending toward the moon so long ago.
