From the esteemed pages of Wikipedia:
YOLO is an acronym for “you only live once”. Similar to carpe diem, it implies that one should enjoy life, even if that entails taking risks. The phrase and acronym are both used in youth culture and music, and were both popularized by the 2011 song “The Motto” by Canadian rapper Drake.
The phrase “you only live once” is commonly attributed to Mae West, but variations of the phrase have been in use for over 100 years, including as far back as (the German equivalent of) “one lives but once in the world” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in his 1774 play Clavigo…
I recently encountered this popular idea in a slightly altered form on a site run by a guy named Tyler Durden and referred to often on Jean Haine’s blog about “the coming changes” before she recently stopped adding material to it. Durden’s version goes:
On a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.
Now, I wish to make my position on this issue very clear:
This idea is incorrect, unethical, and untrue!
And in particular, it is unethical. Ethics has to do with the making of pro-survival decisions. If one truly believes that he only lives once and thereafter is “out of here” forever, one will make very different decisions about survival than if one was quite sure one would be returning again soon, and probably many, many times.
Moreover, the idea expressed in the Wikipedia article that this phrase supports living the life of a carefree risk-taker makes absolutely no sense to me. One might just as likely believe that having many lifetimes would allow for taking more risks in this one, than the other way around. Indeed many Christians apparently believe that after you die out of this life you must wait somewhere for the day of judgement, when your actions this lifetime will determine whether you end up in heaven or in hell. If I really believed that, I’d be ultra-careful, and that’s actually how I see most people behaving. They’re scared shitless they’ll screw up their one big change to get it right!
The latest from David Wilcock, and past lives
On the evening of 7 February, David gave a long presentation to a big room full of people at an event in the LA area called Conscious Life Expo. The presentation included data from “new insiders” about the oldest known ET invaders of our solar system, dating about 5 million years ago. They were giants (compared to us) and lived in the area for a considerable amount of time, until they caught the attention of their enemies (who thought they had been successfully banished) because of the rings they were building around Saturn.
David also revealed that the US runs a secret space program that controls several ships and has visited many places in and around this solar system.
During a follow-up interview David did on Coast-to-Coast AM with George Noory, David mentioned a doctor who had done extensive research into past lives based on cases he saw in his deep regressive hypnotherapy practice. (I subscribe, by the way, to the LRH viewpoint that hypnotherapy is not safe for patients.) The doctor’s name is Michael Newton and he has a website (of course) and sells books (of course – though one or two have been scanned into PDFs available online) and is very sincere about his findings but not very circumspect about them. In other words, he sees the between lives process as necessary and desirable, including, apparently, the memory wipes that he works so hard to penetrate through with his therapy! In any case, this is a resource for those who don’t want to take Hubbard’s word for it on the subject of past lives and between lives.
Remote Viewing ET
Courtney Brown has recently started releasing videos about his latest project (the last being on 9/11) on remote viewing ET. He started with the “face on Mars” in the present and in the past. Sure enough, the remote viewers found Mars populated in the past, though not, I think, the original builders of the oldest ruins that exist there (remember – that could be 5 million years ago!).
The material obtained was pretty good considering how it was procured, and I look forward to the next release.
So, we have the Top Guys apparently willing to talk about a track of human experience extending back about 5 million years. That doesn’t quite match the 76 trillion years of track plumbed by Hubbard, but it is longer ago than most ET or other sources were discussing in the recent past. Sheldan Nidle’s sources, for instance, talk about 1 million years. Billy Meier’s contacts mentioned a few events of 22 million years ago, including an invasion of giants into this solar system. But most of the events they mentioned are less than a million years ago. After all a million years IS a LONG time!
I’m not sure what to make of these disclosures. This is not a complete list. But the predictions of coming doom are too prevalent to be worth mentioning. Yes, some sort of “doom” will arrive here sooner or later. The question is: How prepared will we be for it?
