Julian Robles, my friend and fellow truth warrior passed away yesterday. He was way too young (27), and his passing (due to a medical condition with blood clot complications) was sudden and unexpected. I have not been able to stop crying since I heard the news.
Julian and his partner Justin are the founders of the Stillness in the Storm Blog. They have done an incredible job at bringing truth to the world based on their own experiences and an incredible set of combined skills. They have touched the lives of many people in many countries around the world.
I first met Justin and Julian in person when my family came to Morocco to build a QEG in the Aouchtam community. This by far was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had in my life. So many people gathered in one place for one event. What I remember most about Julian was his smile. He was always laughing and always had the sweetest demeanor. I loved being around both him and Justin and the work that they did together blew me away. Very few bloggers these days go into the depth and detail that these guys do. Justin says he is committed to continuing the work and that Julian’s passing gives him more motivation to do so. Justin my brother I stand right there with you.
Right now I know so many people are feeling the pain of this. Each of us grieves in our own way. As for me I wrestle with the frustration of how it seems like the “good” people die to young and the “evil” people seem to live forever. But in this case we are all suffering the loss of a fellow comrade in truth. I can only hope that wherever he is now, he’s in a place where he can continue to help us in our fight for freeing this planet from the other side.
At one point in time, the community of Aouchtam Morocco consisted of a close-knit group of friends who all came together to help change the world. Much like the mystical tale of Brigadoon, the community appeared from the midst of our intent to change the planet, and just as quickly evaporated back into the mist. Things did not turn out well for the community, as many spent time confronting personal truths and ended up dealing with sacrifices and betrayals that have left us all disenchanted.
Everyone went their separate ways and most of us don’t speak to each other anymore. I returned to Morocco almost a year ago to see the very ugly tail end of it. At the time I was going through my own personal struggles with losing our family home and relocating to a different country to start up our organization. The residual effects of the Aouchtam community fall out turned into a giant blame game that I did not want to be a part of. Also there were some harmful behaviors exhibited by some of the people involved that I would not tolerate and act as if everything was “love and light”. I have never spoken publically about what really occurred towards the end of the Aouchtam community because to do so would hurt other people, and I refuse to do that. I also do not support any of the public bashing that has occurred on various radio shows and facebook threads.
I choose now, in my deep moment of pain to think of my friend Julian and to remember his message: “Because we know the truth, it is up to us to be the change”. I ask, I beg, all of those involved in “lightworker” circles to stop fighting with each other. Stop blaming each other. And stop with the dramatics. Let us all remember the reason why we are doing this. We are trying to change the world. We are trying to get something done in the face of a formidable enemy: which is NOT each other. Its this system, it’s the controlling powers that have harmed humanity for so long. It’s the very work that people like Julian spent his short life trying to change. I will pick up the torch, will you stand with me?
Below is the post from Justin about Julians passing:
R.I.P. Jovan Julian Robles | “Because we know the truth, it is up to us to be the change”
I am sad and heavy hearted as I write this. Earlier today Jovan Julian Robles, my partner in life and the one who opened my eyes and many others, passed away today. He was a loving and compassionate man filled with dreams of a better world and a keen awareness that we were the ones to make it happen. All who came to know him could see the kindness in his heart. He was devoted to helping others, and we both worked tirelessly, on this blog and elsewhere, to do what we could to make this world a better place.
We brought him to he hospital last night and he seemed to be getting better. I left at 1:00am and he was happy and resting peacefully. Despite being on anti-clotting agents, his heart stopped at around 10:50am and the hospital staff tried to revive him for over an hours. I was able to be by his side and encourage him to come back for most of that time. I said I love you and that no matter what happens I’ll continue to stand for truth and serve others. Just after 12:00pm they stopped the life support and he passed away.
I honestly don’t know how I will continue to do the work of this blog without his help. He was a true partner, and helped make Stillness in the Storm what it is today. He had a constant drive to find the best information for empowering others. He had a take no ‘shit from anyone’ warrior spirit and refused to consent to tyranny whenever possible.
We met in 2009 while I was still deeply hidden from the world. It was his encouragement that caused me to come out and begin living my life openly. That choice was such a huge transformation in my life, and I am forever grateful to him for that. It was Julian who found the Gerson Miracle documentary on netflix in 2010 and insisted that we watch it, which was our red pill moment. Everything since then, all our research, discussion and activism has been hand in hand.
After researching for 6 months he had a moment of revelation and burst into tears. He realized back then that because we knew the truth we were the ones to make a difference and that it was up to us to help show others. All our work since then has been under that guiding light of hope and loving service.
We followed our passion by creating this blog and doing more work to help be the change. It was Julian’s encouragement that pushed us to go and visit others, eventually leading us to Morocco. And it was his encouragement that brought us back to the US in May of this year, telling me we needed to come home and continue the work in a bigger way. He was always looking to reach more people and touch more hearts with all he was.
I will do my best to continue maintaining this site, as his passing fills me with even more drive to help others. I will not let his death be in vein. I will not let another suffer as he suffered and I know others will be inspired to do the same. I will continue on with even more conviction to be a force for change and give his life meaning through my efforts, along with all those others who have came before him.
Thank you everyone for your well wishes, positive intentions and loving messages. I am will do my best to respond to each of you and know that it has touched my heart deeply to see how many people were inspired by him and our work.
The next few days, weeks and months will be a huge change for me, but I know that the spiritual essence of this Julian, whom I love deeply, continue’s on.
I will never forget the sentiment he shared that night many years ago when he realized we had to be the change for ourselves and others. He said:
“Because we know the truth, it is up to us to be the change”
I love you all so much.
