Truth Amnesty-A Higher Calling

There is a point that is reached when the release and learning of a truth is infinitely more desirable than anything that might be gained by punishing the offenders that covered up the truth of an event in the first place. It frees up people to talk without fear of implicating themselves, and in so doing, the truth is openly revealed. There are many examples of when such forgiveness has been used, and the end of Apartheid in South Africa is a well-known example of an effective use of Truth Amnesty. It is particularly effective in major paradigm shifts. The understanding and acceptance of the fact that we are not the only ones in the universe and the idea that we aren’t quite all we think we are is a huge paradigm shift on the order of magnitudes.

Alfred Webre’s recently announced disclosure strategy of Truth Amnesty regarding the ET issue is a necessary strategy if the Earth is ever truly going to go galactic. It’s time to put down our guns and play with the big boys. This is not going to happen as long as we have nuclear weapons and worse pointed at each other and into space. The concept of Truth Amnesty is a spiritual concept that runs counter to our own way of thinking. The putting into action of this concept will allow us to enter into a new plane of existence, a new way of thinking and being. A world of peace, forgiveness and grace as opposed to revenge, hate and war. As Webre so eloquently puts it, it is a shift from a war economy to a sustainable economy.

Webre recently contrasted retributive justice with restorative justice on his radio show Exopolitics Radio, Season 2, Episode 6, audio archive hyperlink He explained retributive justice as it relates to the death penalty, imprisonment or some other kind of punishment in return for wrongs committed. Webre explained that restorative justice comes out of aborginal traditions in Canada, being that when a wrong is committed, balance has to be restored to the community.

Relating to the question of ETs, military and government witnesses can be hesitant to talk by reason of security oaths, retirement, loyalty etc. At this stage in the game, the web of ET secrecy has grown into its own animal, and many witnesses have come out to either clear their consciences or to attempt to help unravel the complicated web. The most recent example involves the deathbed confession of First Lieutenant Walter G. Haut, stationed at the Roswell Army Airfield in 1947 when members of the airfield recovered a crashed disc and its occupants. An excerpt from his 20 point sealed affidavit:

I was permitted from a safe distance to first observe the object just recovered north of town. It was approxiately 12 to 15 feet in length, not quite as wide, about 6 feet high and more of an egg shape.

Also from a distance, I was able to see a couple of bodies under a canvas tarpaulin. Only the heads extended beyond the covering….

I am convinced that what I personally observed was some type of craft from and its crew from outer space.1

The problem of ET secrecy is a spiritual problem that requires a spiritual solution. Grace and forgiveness will represent a positive tipping point for our society when we can get there. It is a higher calling, and our departure from business as usual is long overdue and most appropriate to christen the Galactic Age. As we expect our leaders to step through this narrow gate, we as citizens must also let go of ‘eye for an eye’ and come out on the other side. Merely acknowledging an ET presence in our society is not enough if we cannot assume the responsibility of the changes that will come along with it. Dr. Stephen Greer of the Disclosure Project states in his book Hidden Truth, Knowledge that every aspect of our lives will change very quickly once this happens. For example, when we are faced with the reality that intelligent beings from other planets do exist, we will no longer see ourselves as disparate groups of people on a single planet, but we will see ourselves for what we are-a single family of brothers and sisters, all equal members living together on our shared home of Planet Earth.

For this reason it is of the utmost importance that we awaken spirituality within ourselves. Not necessarily religion like most of us have grown up with that has to do with rules, regulations, judgement, etc. Religion has and can help people find and nurture the spiritual self, but it is not the only road. It should only be used if it is aid to a spiritual path. Religion and spirituality are not mutually dependent terms. God is larger than the constructs of thought that we build for him.

There is a true story that reminds me about the importance of what we mean by the terms we use. Two men were talking about spirituality. The first said, “Hey, you sound like a Christian! Are you a Christian?” The second one said, “You tell me what you mean by Christian and I’ll tell you if that’s what I am.” The second one knew that it is important to have terms defined in such a conversation. Otherwise, two people end up talking in different languages and not even realizing it. A word is only as effective as what we attach to that word.

The spiritual side of man is the inner man. The body and the physical needs are the outer man. Just as man is created in two parts to make the whole-male and female, just as the brain itself is divided into two parts to form a whole-right and left, so it is with the spiritual nature of man. It is the unseen, but the spirit is the foundation of who we are and who we present to each other. Even though a man’s spirit may not be seen with the eye, it is all around and ever present along with the body.

It may be easier to understand spirituality in terms of death. When a person dies, that person’s spirit is gone, and they aren’t in the body anymore. What’s left is which the spirit used to occupy. It’s easy to think when looking at a corpse, ‘that isn’t the person we know. That person is no longer here.’ And that would be a correct statement. We put emphasis on the body, but that is only half of the equation. If all we were was the body, we’d be dead. It is the spirit that lives within and throughout the body, and it is the spirit that transcends the body.

The spiritual side of our nature is connected to every other spiritual presence in the universe. It is by this means that we are connected to each other and the Earth. The body can only be where it is, but the spirit is connected continously with everything that there is. The body plays this out by seeking out other spirits in bodily form. We are social creatures because we play out within our bodies what is already going on in the spiritual. We look for friends because we are connected already friends. We seek out people to help us, because the spirit is already connected to a higher power. The spirit is not bound by time and space as the body/mind construct is. The spiritual part of us already knows. The body/mind construct has to learn how to work with with spiritual nature, and many times it is simply a matter of getting our mind out of the way of the spirit so that we can understand what the spirit knows.

We must learn to acknowledge and feed the spiritual nature of man, Earth and the universe, just as we acknowledge and feed the body and just as we acknowledge and care for the Earth. Once we learn to do this, we will be able to assist in caring for and feeding the universal concerns. Until then we remain quarantined on our planet, fighting amongst ourselves and ready to do battle with anyone else we see as a threat.
