8 Interesting and Strange Unexplained Mysteries – Part 1/3 (Weekly Awareness Guide)

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

I wrote the following for the 262nd issue of the Weekly Awareness Guide, a written document distributed weekly via email that I offer for $11.11 a month.

Income from the guide helps me get by and ensures I can continue to offer free content, and every subscription is appreciated. The option to subscribe is given at the bottom of this post (learn about subscribing with cash/check here).

Unexplained mysteries are fascinating; especially when they’re centered on the paranormal. It’s fun to think there could be more to the world than the monotonous existence we put up with and secretly hope contains something more meaningful. This is the reason I’m interested in spirituality and all manner of things science can’t explain.

Even I can admit, however, that the world of the paranormal can be ridiculous. Some paranormal topics you just can’t take seriously. If you’re going to discuss those topics, I recommend doing it in the most down-to-earth way you can. Continue reading

Art Is a Bridge (Meditative Writing)

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

I wrote the following “meditative writing” for the 260th issue of the Weekly Awareness Guide, a written document distributed weekly via email that I offer for $11.11 a month.

Think seriously about why you enjoy writing, art, and music. What is it about creative work that seems to send your soul soaring? It’s as if some inherent quality in creative work connects you with a long-lost and forgotten part of yourself.

Have you ever been moved by an inspiring piece of literature or brought to tears by a piece of music? There’s a reason these things affect you the way they do. Continue reading

Hurting

I won’t lie, I’m hurting bad on the inside. Have been for the past 8 days. But even with all its pain, life is so beautiful. I couldn’t imagine not being on this planet with all of you incredible people.

Stay strong. We are love. ❤

RIP Chester Bennington

Chester Bennington of Linkin Park has tragically passed away. His death was ruled a suicide.

This will sound cliche, but Chester and Linkin Park got me through more hard times than I could count. The world and the lives of millions of people (including mine) will not be the same without him. Our hearts are heavy today.

The Messenger Lyrics:

When you feel you’re alone
Cut off from this cruel world
Your instincts telling you to run

Listen to your heart
Those angel voices
They’ll see you to you
They’ll be your guide
Back home

When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind
It keeps us kind

When you suffered it all
And your spirit is breaking
You’re growing desperate from the fight
Remember you’re loved
And you always will be
This melody will always bring
You right back home

When life leaves us blind
Love, keeps us kind
When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind

– Chester Bennington, The Messenger

In this video, Chester sings One More Light in honor of musician Chris Cornell, his dear friend who committed suicide in May of this year. The new song seems prophetic in light of Chester’s untimely death.

The story behind this performance is that the band was set to perform their single Heavy on Jimmy Kimmel Live when they learned of Chris Cornell’s suicide. Devastated by the news, they decided to play their song One More Light in honor of Chris. His suicide reportedly hit Chester hard, and you can feel the emotion in the performance. Have tissues ready.

One More Light Lyrics:

Should’ve stayed, were there signs, I ignored?
Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
We saw brilliance, when the world, was asleep
There are things that we can have, but can’t keep

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

The reminders pull the floor from your feet
In the kitchen, one more chair than you need oh
And you’re angry, and you should be, it’s not fair
Just ’cause you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it, isn’t there

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

Well I do

– Chester Bennington, One More Light

We should all care if one more light goes out.

Rest in Power, Chester. You will be sorely missed.
