No doubt putting down one's weapons is the saintly thing to do. But right now Tess, I feel my friends and family, especially the doctors can go to hell. Forgive them when they tell me "that's interesting" when I send them something shocking, then gayly jet off to some tropical paradise or recount a party they threw when people like James Roguski are working so hard for all our freedom, and injured people are suffering so terribly? When poor moms are being bribed to get their babies jabbed, still. Sorry, but they know precisely what is happening. It's just too inconvenient to do something about it. Just like at school in South Africa during apartheid when I was told that " ladies don't discuss politics". Or like when they laughed my father out of the doctors' tearoom for saying he would not be using Thalidomide on his patients, then never apologised. Or like when hardly any of our doctor friends spoke up when Steve Biko was murdered. Yeah, well maybe on another day I will do some gardening with people like that. Right now I will spend my precious days with people of courage who care.

I do understand your frustration and as mentioned in another comment, I hope my post reads as a suggestion and not a prescription. How we respond and what we do is always up to each of us.

I do love this, Tess, and am working on it. Part of the difficulty for me to “throw my weapons down” - particularly with close friends - is that their beliefs are a direct threat to my freedoms. Their beliefs have enabled the loss of my job and the denial of my entering certain establishments (unless I could prove I’m not infectious). They still believe, even at this late date, that these things were justified. So while I love these people dearly, and still interact with them, I find my heart is heavy and sometimes my defenses rise quite easily. It’s not what I want; I do want to simply love. It’s just not always that easy.

I’m looking forward to listening to Dr. Dubois’ presentation. Another good resource for understanding why these conversations have been so difficult is reachingpeople.net.

Editing to add that this verse resides on my desk as a reminder: 1 Cor 16:14 “Let love and kindness be the motivation behind all that you do.” (The Passion Translation)

I do understand and I hope my post didn't read as a prescription. Every situation is different and context is everything. Thank you for sharing the verse, it's beautiful. Warm wishes to you and your loved ones.

Your first paragraph expresses exactly my own reaction. I frankly fine Dubois' presentation useless as he doesn't even acknowledge this. He seems to live in the "both sides have their reasons/truth" camp.

I just watched the first part of the presentation, and sadly I agree with your assessment. I do find the short videos at reachingpeople.net to be more helpful in at least explaining why our conversations have failed.

Thanks, Lori. I will def check this out.

We need to get away from the willfully blind fools. They are dragging us down to Hell with them. Kick them off and let them fall alone.

Yes! Thank you, Tess and Dr. Dubois, because that confirms what I said many months ago in response to Steve Kirsch's heart-felt plea that went, paraphrased, 'I have not been able to red-pill anyone! Why not? I love polls and analysis, so please tell me what have your successes been so I can tabulate them into working formula?'

I observed that rational and logical argument to change anyone's mind cannot work because their fear has removed all energy from the thinking part of the brain. It is now in the amygdala and in that place there is no thinking. Simply reaction.

Arguing with them to 'change there mind' is a form of 'himsa', a kind of violence because to change one's mind is a form of death of something, and so to *change* there mind a kind of killing. They are already afraid, and so arguing will exacerbate their fear. No good.

So, what to do? I didn't use Tess's words, which are lovely. Instead I said to become absolutely free from intention and expectation, to be completely calm and at peace. And without any expectation, check their curiosity. My go-to question is to ask if they know how the current 'vaccine' works and how it is different from historical vaccines. If the answer is 'No', then we are free to talk about the weather. If it is 'Yes', then I ask if they understand normal vaccine technology and usually check their understanding, again with questions. Engage them and deepen their curiosity, have them participate in the conversation. So, in explaining the technology, some details of mRNA and how the artificial mRNA is built and how it works. If I am truly coming from a place of peace and love and total acceptance of them, they will open their minds and let some light in. Don't go too far, and allow their thinking brain to begin to act again.

That won't always wake them up because they can begin to see the implications and many simply do not want to admit that they have been tricked by someone of trust into taking something deadly.

And be compassionate. The psyop of fear has been inculcated for decades. For some it is very deep and fearmongering with weather, war, bank crashes keeps it deep. The effort on our part is to be loving enough for the person with a little room to be able to move, even incrementally, out of fear to feel safe enough with you to be curious.

Our 'side' with fearmongering is only feeding the cabal's plan. Drop our fear, becoming love, and be compassionate. Sounds like the teachings of Christ and Buddha. Interesting.

(For the curious, I wrote that in my substack. https://gduperreault.substack.com/p/thoughts-covid-reset-yogic-and-uncategorised/.)

Again thank you Tess.

Da nada. I had an 'aha' yesterday. I will expand my thinking around this issue. 'We have met the enemy and the enemy is us.' How does this fit into this challenge?

And again, thank you, Tess, for the energy you are contributing to this time that has focused or clarified that being alive is spiritual journey into self awareness. Peace and gratitude.

Thank you Dr. Tess. We need people like you to hold the torch high. Behind the scenes is a sinister

force that has caused confusion and delusion on a global scale. You and others like you keep reminding us to follow the path of reason and light and truth, Please do not give way to discouragement or weariness. You have been given a noble task to help so many sort out truth from falsehood.

Partly the issue is that people don't understand the over-arching manipulation that's happening. They believe in a narrative that's circulating-- "well, we all did the best we could and we're back to normal now, for the most part, aren't we?"-- and can't bring themselves to consider that their perceptions are being manipulated, that they're actually being told what to think.

It's an issue I'm trying to understand more. It has a lot to do with the misguided trust in "Science," when this is trust is now being used to manufacture consent.

So yes, we do have to "act normally" and I don't believe the fight mode is always the best response. At the same time we have to understand the nature of the broad manipulation that's capturing so much of the population.

Breathtaking simple and here's how I know for sure it will be successful: it's exactly what the fearmongers are afraid of. I'm in! Thanks Tess. Straight from the heart, as usual.

You’ve certainly piqued my interest regarding Patrick’s presentation, which sounds like a great complement to your revelatory conversation with David Charalambous (https://drtesslawrie.substack.com/p/tess-talks-with-david-charalambous).

Thank you also for sharing our collaborative labo(u)r of love, Tess 💞 I think the worldwide resonance with this piece shows these were the right words in the right voice with the right vision at this pivotal moment in history 🙌

The idea is wonderful, and I've been doing it for a few months now. When I see someone I haven't seen for a while, they generally come up and want to shake hands, I immediately reach out and offer a hug. It hasn't been declined yet and it is truly wonderful.

One question, any idea how to reach out to those who live far away? I'm originally from the UK but now live in NZ, I hellhole during covid. I have pretty strained relationships with all of my family, we used to be quite close, particularly my brothers and sisters. But now we can't have a conversation. We aren't allowed to mention anything that happened in the last 3 years. I've tried different approaches but always meet denial and resistance. It breaks my heart that it's like this and I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions welcomed.

MOVE FORWARD in compassion and LOVE... these persons are related to you by blood, yet are now strangers. If you are able, treat them as such. Sometimes we treat strangers more kindly than family. Therefore be as kind to them and patient with them as our generation had learned to be with complete strangers. There is no reason to bring up the past. It is DONE, the issues are DONE...it is OVER move forward with compassion... no one wants to hear they Fucked up EVER, especially in the manner in which these poor souls were duped. We cannot change hearts or minds normally, let alone those that have been brutalized by outside sources and the like. They are co-existent persons with you on this planet...but not your 'type' of persons... be Gracious give them no need to anger, or agress at you. Love them for who they are now...bring them a full heart, keep yours full and protect it from any slings and arrows regarding the past 3 years. Kindness towards them while they are well and functioning.

Vinnie - I do treat them as such, I've never once said to them that they fucked up, never. I've tried very gently pointing out things like masks don't work, why are you still wearing them? I always tell them I love them because I do, whether we agree on things or not. But the total inability to even acknowledge that there may be issues and is apparently something we aren't allowed to talk about is what is so frustrating.

I know for a fact, I have never in my life said to someone we aren't allowed to talk about an issue. We can have a difference of opinion, have the conversation and if required, then agree to disagree. But never refuse to even acknowledge there is an issue at all. Total denial which is the part I struggle with.

You are absolutely correct, in that we need to change tack on how we “present” ourselves. ‘They’ have the media on their sides so we use ‘people power’, old fashioned touchy feely stuff to spread the “we’re not frightened” vibe. They’re boxing people into homes, devoid of anywhere to go outside of their “zones”. Caged animals. We need to restore our “humanity”, and I don’t mean ‘woke’ stuff, some of them are less than awake! But we need to help them t understand, and WE need to listen too. Maybe we ALL are potentially slightly cognitively dissonant!! Anyway, don’t let them divide us to conquer us, there WILL be agent provocateurs(shit stirrers) so beware in whom you trust. There WILL be false apostles, or wise men, or the Bushes again.... 😁❤️✌️

Personally, I think Thomas Gordon's Active Listening method works very well. It involves replying to the other person by saying what emotion they appear to be experiencing and what it's about. Like: "You're annoyed at people who question authorities?" One needs to avoid sounding sarcastic. It has to sound genuine. You can look it up.

In the mean time, would anyone like to comment on RFK Jr for President at https://rfk4president.substack.com/ or https://rfk4president.substack.com/p/rfk-jr-4-president? Do most of us agree that his candidacy will help End the Jab, whether he gets elected or not? And Republicans at the county level to Ban the Jab can make it a bipartisan movement?

Thank you for this reflection. This resonates with so many parts of myself. I long for that lost connection and dearly miss so many relationships. And so many parts don’t know how to connect with people who may believe it was justified that my small family of 3 was in fact denied full participation in society. Parts of me seek a reckoning. It’s all so layered.

Having watched the first half of Dr. Dubois' video, I'm so far unimpressed, to put it mildly. He painstakingly explains our human need for belonging and a propensity to huddle together against threats of pathogens (which is disputable: the wealthier among us have always dwelled apart from the "dirty" masses). He offers that we "each have our own beliefs, which we need to re-examine". As if to say; truth is subjective, according to our experience.

So, I won't be bothered to watch till the end, which Tess's write-up reveals his point to be just to spend some pleasant time with those who have rejected us. Really?

Fair enough, though I will say I just focused on one point and there's a little more to his presentation than that.

Is there any other medical therapeutic that hijacks the bodies operating system, forcing it to create something unnatural to the human body? My understanding is most interventions either interrupt something (pain receptors) or encourage something that already occurs (ovaries to ovulate or immune system to dial up or down) or is external to function, as in radiation kills cancer cells - is there anything comparable to these mRNA coded shots?
