The original meaning of words in ancient texts is often misunderstood today because our idea of what these words mean has changed over time.
A perfect example of this comes from the word "Apocalypse." Today, this word often initiates ideas of the destruction of the whole world.
The original meaning of "Apocalypse" actually sounds nothing like the end of the world.
"An apocalypse (Ancient Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apokálypsis, from ἀπό and καλύπτω meaning "uncovering"), translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, i.e., a lifting of the veil or revelation. In religious contexts it is usually a disclosure of something hidden.
In the Book of Revelation (Greek: Ἀποκάλυψις Ἰωάννου, Apokalypsis Ioannou – literally, John's Revelation), the last book of the New Testament, the revelation which John receives is that of the ultimate victory of good over evil and the end of the present age, and that is the primary meaning of the term, one that dates to 1175.
Today, it is commonly used in reference to any prophetic revelation or so-called end time scenario, or to the end of the world in general."
To realize the true nature of reality.
By definition, the word "Enlightenment," implies that most people do not perceive reality as it truly is.
A THOUGHT TO CONSIDER:
Does the true meaning of apocalypse come when we, as individuals, become enlightened & begin seeing reality as it truly is?

Violence is a primitive reaction,
NOT a conscious course of action.
Violence revolves until we evolve.
Peace is a choice &
it begins within you.
Terrorism is carried on by those who choose a narrow perspective while refusing to attempt seeing things from other perspectives.
People's tendency to look at how things are different actually keeps them from noticing how much they are the same.
Violent people are functioning in the more primitive parts of the brain. Their actions are rooted in fear of anything different, so literally people reject/attack anything that fear might be different. Yes, I really am saying that they are clearly operating from a lower level of the brain... their actions tell on them, I didn't really have to!
Violence is a primitive reaction, not a conscious course of action.
Attempting to control the masses via fear, may appear successful for a while but what they are really doing is inspiring people to look for other solutions!
Looking for those solutions?
We covered some on my radio show last week!

Whenever exposed to info about invasive species in lakes & waterways, I can't help but shake my head knowing that the way humans think to remove such things is by poisoning them. Hello? Poison is poison. What are the long term effects of poisoning our waters?
I wonder if these invasive species are so bad, why aren't the people starving without fish populations in areas these invasive species came from?
Anyone else noticing the increasing water clarity in lakes infested by zebra mussels?
Zebra mussels filter and clean the water. Much of what people believe to be true about zebra mussels is not fact.
Found this interesting article separating fact from fiction on zebra mussels:
I can't help but wonder if this is Mother Earth's way of cleaning up the mess humans have been making while polluting & poisoning the waters directly or indirectly via the run off coming from the areas where people continuously spray chemicals & poisons on crops & lands. When all those different poisons & chemicals mix together in the water, what long term effect will that have?
I am a Twin Soul noticing syncronicities with other Twin Souls after having spent time with my twin. Sharing a brief summary of my experiences.
If you've been feeling poorly physically and/or emotionally, crabby or sad lately, something has been shifting with earth's energy and I've been feeling it since last week, noticed lots of others are feeling it too. Has felt kind of like a full moon and raging pms added together and then multiplied considerably.
I don't watch the news, but last week was so overwhelming to me that I finally asked someone what was going on in the world to explain what I was experiencing.
I suspect the big riot in Baltimore really affected the Earth's electromagnetic field.
Whatever people are feeling is shared in their electromagnetic fields which is generated by the human heart and scientists have measured these energy fields up to 15 feet away from the body.
A while ago, the scientists began looking at how the human's electromagnetic field is causing an affect on the earth's electromagnetic field. It only makes sense that the human electromagnetic fields would also affect each other too.
I think that's probably what we are experiencing lately. It's really felt overwhelming, but then again, I am an empath, so I'm always more sensitive to what others are feeling.
When feeling down or upset, please let's all try really hard to choose what we want to feel instead of feeding negativity, OK?
If you are wondering how any of that could cause others to feel physically poorly, consider how getting really upset makes you feel... tired, low energy, etc, right? Well, that's partially because it's physically taxing on your bodily functions, it slows digestion, sleeping patterns, increases cortisol which affects the endocrine system/blood sugars, etc.
Now that scientists have discovered that the energy frequency of our emotions is actually being broadcasted up to 15 feet away from the body in all directions, which then interacts with the electromagnetic energy field of others up to 30 feet away from you... your negativity, anger & sadness just might be the tipping point for those who have weakened immune systems or are in poor physical health anyway.
The cumulative affect of this spreading from person to person is likely the same as a highly contagious virus. I'm serious about this, it's important, let's get a hold of this before it gets too far out of hand. ~♡~ Jen Kruse
