Deepak Chopra is an acclaimed writer, speaker, and thinker about all things metaphysical.  In the following quotes he explores our relationships and the challenges we will often face and through is thoughtful and introspective style, offers practical guidance.

1. “Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.” (Deepak is well known for his exploration of all things related to relationships and this theme of meanings and connections within a person’s own life is a common  in his quotes and books)

2. “In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.” (Very good advice in the sense that the common reaction when things are getting a little crazy is to ramp up the chaos through one’s own behavior.  Sometimes it becomes necessary to swim against the current.  There is another quote, though not from Chopra that I am fond of.  It goes like this….when emotions run high, logic runs low.  So do not allow chaos to color your attitude and behavior.  Recognize if for what it is, part of nature.)

3. Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.” (It is not uncommon for any of us to lose sight of the importance of practicing modesty and not failing prey to assumptions about the future.  The sooner we realize that the future is always moving and that there are a wide range of potential outcomes, the better we will be in managing our future).

4. “Don’t try to steer the river.” (This is definitely the case of less is more in terms of wisdom.  Sometimes we can get too busy trying to do, too much).

5. “If you focus on success, you’ll have stress. But if you pursue excellence, success will be guaranteed.”  (I think many of us can attest to this truth.  By trying to hard, the very thing you may wish to attain or grasp, seems to move further away).

   

JFK Views Flying Saucer?

On a sunny afternoon in Dallas, Texas the President of the United States rolled down Elm Street on November 22, 1963.  Shots roared, people screemed, and within the next hours, the young American President had been slain.  Where aliens involved or was it the mob?

Or as Oliver Stone inferred in his his movie, ”JFK”, was it a vast government conspiracy?  As revealed by the infamous Zapruder film, John Fitzgerald Kennedy had been shot twice.  As the first bullet which struck, it was evident that JFK had been wounded in the upper back. The bullet exited the area around the throat area. The findings from the Warren Commission which later was set up to fully investigation the assassination, revealed that the first wound was not a mortal wound.  Kennedy likely would have survived.  The second bullet is believed to have missed, but the third shot struck the President in the back of the head, ending his life.  Volumes of books have been written since the event and several investigations by private citizens, groups and the U.S. government has taken place.  It was an event that shaped history and the world in a manner never seen before or since.

Shortly after the assassin was killed himself at the Dallas, Texas police station by a conflicted and impulsive night bar owner, Jack Ruby, conspiracy theories began to emerge. Even to this day, the event is clouded in mystery, though most informed experts subscribe to the single assassin theory with Lee Harvey Oswald being the responsible killer.

Nevertheless, there is a small, but very vocal minority of researchers, critics, and investigators that do not believe JFK was killed that November day in Dallas, Texas.  Over the years there have been numerous sightings.  While Kennedy’s body was presumably autopsied and photographed, there are believers that the autopsy was of not of JFK and that the photographs are not legitimat.

One report from UFOSNW.com, purports that an Air Force veteran photographer stated that he was asked to take photos of JFK with an alien in September 1963 at a secret airbase, which would have been a few months before the assassination.  Prior to taking the photos, he was accompanied by two men in black suits.  Ok, if you are thinking Men in Black, I understand.  Little is known about this veteran photographer as through his correspondence he was adamant about his confidentiality, though the person relating the story states that he was able to verify that his individual was stationed at Adair Air Force Station in 1963.

The alien was reportedly a “head” taller than President Kennedy and a saucer shaped craft was nearby. The letters A-TIPACIL reportedly appeared on the space craft. The meeting supposedly lasted about 30 minutes. The alien was also described as having very long, thin arms, large black eyes, and dressed in a grey jump suit. The Air Force veteran who snapped off the photographs (which are not in the public domain) speculated that Kennedy may have been assassinated  because he wanted to make the alien’s presence known to the public.  The story was allegedly kept under wraps because of death threats to the veteran, but as age and sickness has entered into the picture, the individual had little to lose, it was said.

There have been other stories circulate over the years to claim President Kennedy had been taken to alien crash site locations in the past and had interacted with aliens.  What really happened regarding Kennedy and any contact he may have had with aliens is left to each of us to speculate about given the sparseness of information.
