Sleep?

When your tired and feel its time to go to bed and get some great zzz’s, have you found this sort of clearing house effect of all or most thought an asset in getting to sleep much easier or not. Or for one and half dozen other reasons, the clearing house (active mind) doesn’t always kick-in in the m...

Global Warming?

The reoccurring change in record breaking weather patterns such as prolonged, paralyzing subzero freezing snow and flooding rainstorms the east has been having as of late and so close to the summer and the excessive, surmounting hurricane activity in the southwest, plus the melting of the polar caps...

I too have noticed that as the years go by what you described becomes inbred in your nature. Only difference is that you become so conditioned to it that although periodic drops of consciousness cause you to drift into attitudes not exactly wanted, your standby seems to always kick in with its somet...

Wings, Feel free to address any problems I have posted on the forum. That is, if you are a man. I can't always say if it's a man or a woman just by their computer name. (smile) Gina, how does one with candor and politeness convincingly tell another that they’ve become a loose canon? Since I’ve come...

yougarksooo,

Word suffocation is no stranger to me and probably many of us. Unclogging with more of the same can cause vein-popping disfigurement not pretty in the mirror of life.

As a miserable word refugee of lost souls, a toast to life. :D

Some strands of earlier Gnostic Christianity who followed what we follow here (spiritual self-realization) went too far into denying all form. Some m...

Wings. You are a poet with words to your credit. Unfortunately, your words created a cycle like a gerbal running on a treadmill or a car in neutral flooring the gas pedal. Not a waste as far as you being a beautiful soul just a waste of all those beautiful words. Joel. Don't be afraid because you a...

The word ego is bandied around akin to something like one of those paddle balls with a rubber band attached to it. You beat on it as fast or as smooth or as technically correct with the kind of talent that keeps attentions too it, as it requires. Some handle the balance and stride of their movements...

I assume you meant you haven't experienced anything yet that would qualify as a miracle in your definition. Got it. Yes, I guess you can say that. It’s been like it’s probably been since who knows when. It is what it is and being aware, knowing or whatever you want to call it, it’s still the same a...

Enlightened, Now What! 'I' used to be quite ambitious - and by most worldy accounts, 'I' am very successful -- but now that 'my' ego is waning... what is ('my') point? Somebody's sig 'I' read was 'the meaning of life is a life of meaning' which really reasonated... but 'I' don't feel enough of a se...

I hardly believe that either one of us was identified too strongly with a position.

If you could stand far enough away from yourselves and look at the content of this abysmal thread, you and others could understand why there is war. Your hypothesizing and nauseous generalizations is the stuff of which friction, conflict was born and will persist as it’s meant to be. It’s really no ...
