    OtB:

    I am very glad to read your personal work experience and thank you for sharing that with us. It is so seldom that we get to read or otherwise get exposed to first hand and from the heart reports from the financial front lines. Very sobering, indeed, and well stated.

    This is the kind of information that is trustworthy enough to be taken seriously in any of our personal thinking for the future as may regard a ‘Plan B, or C  …..or not, perhaps as the cases may be. I hope that there are more of you among us who will see the value to themselves and us ‘others’ to share current work-a-day experiences so that we can all benefit from a sense of community intellect to assist us each with our decision making process.

    Sadly,…or perhaps fortunately for me, my similar, but smaller potatoes types of experiences were decades ago, but in hindsight I can discern the ongoing disease of greed and lying that I was taken aback with, even from 30 to 40 years ago, so that observation is about all that I have to contribute to this thread. I really do hope to hear from more of you ‘youngsters’ because I feel that we TIF’rs need to become even moar serious about ourselves, our loved ones and our best insurance of developing small but strong senses of community.

    Mrs Cog; Please accept a huge tiger hug from the Southern contingency, TIF Antarctica Observation Station.  Besides, your new reality may have balance and focus built into it already.

    Hello MrsCob and OtB:

    This is a very interesting and ripening topic and I have enjoyed reading what has been posted.

    Since 1 Jan., 2009 I have been anticipating ‘failure’ and have had some of my anatomical parts handed to me on several intellectual platters, almost all have limited their prognostications of that ‘failure’ to some point in time that is an ever moving target. ‘Failure’, perhaps like beauty (or perhaps everything), is in the eye of the beholder, and also like everything, changes. I would be very interested in your own projections of the cycle lengths of times leading up into, during and reversals of these ever elusive ‘failures’.

    A point that I would like to add is that whatever form of ‘failure’ occurs and on whatever level, local up to global, it will inevitably be followed by recovery to some degree, since there seem to be no absolutes, golden rule exception acknowledged. And while I personally think/feel that hyperinflation could well be what follows deflation, I suspect however, that the greater the numbers/powers impacted, the faster some type of remedial action will be put into place – for better or worse.

    Japan’s example of extended prolongation of economic cycling could well be the model that avoids the crash/burn/dead fears being voiced. It’s just that it is so boring.

    Happy new year to you both,

    Hello Dis:

    Please forgive me, but I just scrolled down and saw that I had missed a question from you on the 13th of Oct., (# 9634)  so please allow me to respond at this late date.

    The town/city of Valdivia was founded on January 9, 1552 by Pedro de Valdivia, who named it Santa María la Blanca de Valdivia. I think that Valdivia was a common Spanish name and that’s how it got brought over to all parts of South America.

    My personal imagery and sense of energy is from reading Robert Heinlein and the name ‘Valdivia’ just seems to suggest a name he would have given to a remote galaxy which is sorta’ how I feel about where I am. I do draw a strong sense of energy from being here, just a couple of hundred meters back from a wild, windy, broad, roaring surf beach and being able to look out into strangely shaped trees that have twisted together in their journey upward. This is a remote area with original Pacific temperate rain forest ‘jungle’ as it is named in Spanish, Selva Valdiviana, or in English, Valdivian jungle. No monkeys, but rabbits and fox, with unique birds like the Ibis and otter in the streams and rivers. I have a good year around stream that forms my Western property line, but the woods are very thick and hard to walk through, so I seldom go down there as it is overgrown creek bottom.

    It is a unique and wonderful energy, and it warms my heart to be able to share it with you, especially ;>).

    Thank you for your sharing and your rebounding positivism. I am moved and now more attached, for better or worse, to you and fellow TIF’rs.

    My condolences and best wishes to you, and your extended family.

    It may be none of my business, and freely say so, but please define ‘little people’ as you used in your above reply. I cannot stop smiling as I contemplate the incredible diversity that I have encountered here on TIF.

    Ahhh CD, how well I understand what you are saying, and how well I agree with what you say. I’m just sorry that you short-stopped me, and the rest of the TIF membership, from taking that very position, or at least our own positions from our many, many years of, collective experience. And if Petero had become in any way abusive or disruptive, then step in and draw the line in an environment  open for all of us members to have had as a learning experience.

    My thoughts are that with responses from the quality of members that are on board TIF, everybody may have benefited from those exchanges, possibly including Petero.  After all,  personal change seems a big part of all of our challenges, well, most all of our challenges, and there’s something right with having qualified and experienced equals and coharts available to help effect that change and to guide dialogue to that end. TIF is rich in both and it comes through in our forums, at least for me.

    I truly consider this water under the bridge, and you had the extended conversations with him and I have put my trust in your and Mrs Cog’s hands.

    Thank you again for contributing to this dialogue between us, it makes me even happier and more proud to be a member of this wonderful community.

    Thank you CD for your very helpful explanation as to the basic outline of what went down with Petero. It was a long time coming and I feel that it is helpful for all members to understand that you are balanced in your decisions and transparancy always helps understanding. Keep up the good works.

    Hello Mitchbarr:

    I remember my first few, well maybe all of them, responses in the forums as being awkward and most probably un, or ill formed. Let me assure you that this is an understanding group of fellow members, we’ve all been where you are as a new member, and we welcome your energy. Join in and test the waters of what may be available to you. There is is an unbelievably wide bandwidth of thinking and exploring that is going on here, so welcome aboard.

    Hello Zens & OtB,                         re: 10420 and Zens posting re: Castanada & Don Juan that OtB is responding to

    Thank you both for you meaningful contributions of your own energies in your discussion and question and answer give and take. For me, the more that this sort of exposing established concepts of society to discussion happens, the more meaningful this forum becomes, as I said, for me personally. Within this discussion between the two of you, I am finding within my own inner reactions to what is being asked and what is being offered, clarifications and occasionally examples of  behaviors that I am personally dealing with for myself.

    As an example, I see more clearly the difference between my own energies that are mindful, aware intentions, i.e., my thinking about various processes in the construction of my cabin home, and the loss of my energies when that thinking drifts into petty, judgmental condemnations of the attitudes and methods of some of the workers that may be on my site at the moment, or have been in my awareness for my recent, or past current history. I see the reality of that energy being lost, possibly to some unspecified non-physical entity, but certainly from my amount of energy directed to my personal expansion and development.

    OtB’s patient explanations here on TIF are condensing, for me, into an understanding of where I feel that I presently am within my own reality. And that is in trying to get a grasp on, and understand what my non-physical spiritual nature truly is for me personally. I have been wrestling with this primarily with my intellect….your laughter here is acknowledged as valid and understandable, but what has broken through for me, like the sun out of the clouds, is that I need to  – ‘on my own’, connect to whatever this energy is that is my personal non-physical nature via an opening of myself into Nature, just as OtB has been patiently saying, over and over.

    Thank you both for your energies.

    I hope I’m not too late to catch you for just a moment, I would like to say how enjoyable and stimulating it has been for me to read and correspond with you here on TIF,

    I embraced radical change in my life for my own self, in a real sense, as an act of survival. I send you energy to do whatever you feel is required for yourself to survive and be sovereign.

    I’m just WAAAAY happy for you, I kinda got that from your pic’s. My heartiest congrats and well wishes and I’ll keep an eye on you for my own inspiration if I ever get my cabin built and the out building that they call a ‘bodega’ here where I am hoping to grow indoors . They only get about 50 to 70 really sunny days here. It’s not always real cold, but almost always overcast, very much like the Seattle area climate.

    Maybe you could vent that room a little into you house for atmosphere / ambiance, I’m really envious of that aspect of indoor growing. I usta be that way in my little outdoor wine cellar for so many years in Napa, Ca., just loved the smells and the buzz from tasting. My first year making wine, I made 4 barrels and by the time that it was ready to rack and bottle, I had already drank one whole barrel, -gods truth, absolute word, bro.!!

    Stay strong,

    Hello Mr Pepper:

    Thanx for keeping on keeping on. Your latest pictures flashed me back to the old days when there were florist shops that had greenhouses attached to them and the inspirationally wonderful aroma of green life would wash over me every time I opened their door to go inside. Are you getting any side benefits like that from your grow room?

    Ohhhh, I thought I had deleted that after I realized that the kudzu food source could well be the entanglement potential, sorry ’bout that. I’ve had friends that sprayed a water diluted molasses solution even over dead wood for the goats to eat, but he needed to supplement their diet with some good food. The combo of staking out and spraying or painting  the target will work with goats, and then there’s the bar-b-que at the end of the experience.

    But Pepper, I’ve exposed my true self in that I know just enough to create new problems – thanx so much for the encouragement and I take that as permission to just keep on helping to create new problems. It’s the only thing that keeps me off the streets and the park benches.

    A steel corkscrew ground tether with a light cow chain will work like a wonder if you attach a spring clip permanently to the corkscrew and then you can lengthen or shorten the radius length of the chain to keep the goat away from trees or tangle obstacles as you relocate it throughout your food source.

    Hello Dis:

     

    That Yes article was very interesting to me, thanx for suggesting it. It really points out that it’s not a black or white world and we can find a place for what we each choose to believe we want. That statement just reminded me of the choice dilemma in flipping a coin and it doesn’t come down with what you believed, perhaps secretly, was what you wanted. Do I hear 2 out of 3?

    It also pointed out to me that there are good, well meaning people almost everywhere….with quite a few exceptions, I’m sure.

    Hello OtB:

    I asked haughtily, you responded sincerely, I receive with deep admiration and appreciation. The magnitude of what you have offered is indeed humbling to me, but I am also very proud for you and what you are going through in this sharing.  As I am also proud for the Cog’s for all of their facilitation efforts and hopeful for the effects that are possible for all participants.

    Hello OtB;         @ quote 9779 above

    Thanks for your prompt response.  And I eagerly await your coming essays.

    In defense of my presumptions as to your intents and meanings from your introduction of the term ‘War’ into the discussion about Archons, I plead guilty of having accepted the concepts of Victory, Defeat, or non-player.

    As you know, I am somewhat a veteran of these wars and have personally taken up the mantle of non-player in most every way possible by my actions. My emotions, and what’s left of my intellect however, are thankfully , still opening ever wider to changing, both in possibilities and probabilities.

    And in this latter sense, I gratefully acknowledge your  introducing the concept of the lessor of two evils in the last paragraph above. This I accept as a 4th concept of ‘War’, and a political one from my history of experience, which has usually meant putting off an inevitable conclusion of one of the first three. I hope that you will address at what point will we know when we may be wrong, as even I will recognize when it is right, hopefully within the time that I have remaining.

    Please understand that this attitude is the product of almost one half century of resistant activism that has been hoping to see a true light at the end of an almost endless tunnel. You can also see that I am not without hope, maybe just without a lot of patience ;>).

    Hello OtB:

    MAYBE, just hopefully, this will appear directly below your  post#9755, dated 16/10 /14.

    to quote you above; ” The primary issue is the connection between you as a physical individual and your psychic energetic connection to the larger non-physical public space. ”

    I want very much to think about this specific question that you have posed, but for me to feel effective at this, I need you to define what you mean by…..”to the larger non-physical public space”, and include your past warnings of venturing into “larger non-physical public space.” within this framework, as I confuse easily. Are you saying that if a personal energy connection is not made via the tree/dog/nature route it’s suspect? Maybe there’s confusion in my head about the elusive differences of ‘connection’ and ‘communication’ that you are familiar with, but I’m not.

    ” Those very few that could never would because they understand too well what the result would be if they were successful in defeating the real non-physical bad guys behind this all.” Could this be that we need to learn to not ‘defeat’ !

    And here I was thinking that was what it was all about…. So, what’s it all about, Alphie?  Riddle me that, Batman!

    Hello OtB & Mrs Cog:

    Thank you both for being willing to test your jumper cables for live sparks with this forum.I must be gone for 4 or 5 days, but cannot walk away from such electric stimulation without testing my own newly sprouting cables that seem to be acting like rain-forest vines twisting and turning in space seeking a grounding.

    I feel qualified to speak from experience about the specific subject of Buddhism only from my own point of having gone to the source Dia Hon Sojiji Temple in Tsurumi, Japan and lived there for 19 months sitting in zazen for 2 – 2hour sessions per day every day. I was given access to the Abbot who spoke English and accepted me as an acolyte and eventually offered a life position there as the Foreign Guest Master which I humbly declined, this in the late 1960’s. Reading John Lamb Lash’s words prickled me at first, but with reflection I sensed that the very passivity of Zen was part of why I declined to stay in that proffered pathway, at that time in my life. I find agreement with the assessment of JLL and OtB today because today is very different from the awareness of what ‘today’ was for me in the 60’s, and I am 73, not 26 any longer.

    On a second point, I would suggest that ‘knowing’ is really just ‘believing’ voiced in strongest possible personal terms. And what this is suggesting to me by my own experience in changing myself is that we all go through any period of our lives in one of 3 ways;  1.) no change,  2.) relative change, and 3.) radical change.  And the only changes that matter are our changes in beliefs because those are the precursors to all actions of choice.

    So from my present view, the big questions we each have to ask ourselves almost moment by moment is: “Am I sooo happy that there is nothing that I would change?” or “What do I want to change, big or small, about the ‘who, what, when and where’ that I feel is me at this moment, and what beliefs am I willing change to make this happen?” I personally sense that the suggestions of OtB about connecting through nature to my larger self for true help with these decisions, is the only viable option left from all my years of trying on changes in every department of life as I knew it and have lived it through the golden years offered to me in this life.

    My best to all,

    Glynn

    Hello to both Dis and Urban Pepper:

    You guys are two of my new heroes, Dis for his prolific reading, and Mr. Pepper for his prolific growing. My hat’s off to both of you kind and generous gentlemen.

    Mr. P, let me know if you ever decide to build your own, because one of the rough ideas that I mentioned would maybe need to be refined to provide some lateral support for the tall back wall side, but this would be very good for supplies and materials storage space and possibly allow for raised beds on the ground and your staggered shelving onto the wall and hanging beds above it all, & for very little additional footprint in you productive work area. I think that you can get rolls of reflective one sided thick paper to more cheaply provide reflective light surface without trapping quite so much of the heat from your lights with that added insulation factor. Just a thot about any future project.

    Don’t be too surprised if you get a police/DEA visit from your hot-spot, heat-venting signature from their overhead drone activity if you expand too much more. The more “inspired” growers that I have known ‘of’,  force vented through underground perforated drain pipes like septic or roof drainage systems utilize to cool their exhaust down to mild uproars ;>). The games people play!!

    Hello Urban P:

    I’ve just worked my way down your whole forum and I am soooo proud of you. I want to ask about the green houses, I was able to get the price of the tall, large one from your text, but the Harbor Freight website was down for maintenance and I’m wondering about the price for the small one.

    A thought about the big one is that you could rig a simple overhead beam system that would allow you to raise and lower beds up on pulleys, but your climate may build up too much heat at the top. Or, you could install it in halves up against your house or garage, or for footprint space management and sun alignment. If 2 half sheds worked better in your yard space you could frame the backwalls out of 2×2’s and cover that with visqueen.

    Altho I’m in a generally cloudy rain forest environment, all the locals build visqueen green houses over 2 x 2 framing lumber. Keeping it simple and keeping it real and they gather the ox shit off the streets. There are NO tractors or bob-tail trucks here, just beautiful pairs of oxen and a happy man working them. That’s how they pull 4×4 townee’s out of the sand down on the beaches.

    Great forum, thanx for your inspirations,

    Amigos mios,   @ OtB  #9603  &  @Dis  #9611 :

    The Valdivian forces are with you, and I hope that this post gets placed in proper perspective to it’s actual timing in relation to your posts mentioned above.

    I agree with you both from deeply heartfelt emotions that it is indeed time for us express ourselves, each from our own unique positions of experience and consciousness. Thank you both and the others of you aboard the good ship TIF, both passengers and crew.

    These are captivating awareness’s and important for us to receive them, acknowledge them and then to act upon them, or not, to our best abilities and interests for ourselves and those dear and near to us. It is never a good time for disruptive changes, but we as participants, having committed ourselves to consider new possibilities for ourselves, need to give very serious consideration to the levels of our personal commitments that may be required to achieve the change that first motivated us to become participants.

    Many of these revelations are dramatic and relatively extreme, but those as presented as core to personal change are not so much demanding on us as they may seem to be when blanketly included in the galactically big-picture that is unfolding for us here. The old saying that long journeys are begun with small steps taken one at a time needs to be calmly embraced, but acted upon, and that is to do the calming and regenerative discipline of relaxing into personal focus on whatever portion of Nature, be it trees, animals, peppers, fruits, flowers, etc., that has always had an element of appeal to you personally, and give yourself over to joining your total awareness with that natural object. This is the giant leap for (hu)mankind that is a requirement for us at this point, but for us individuals,  it is really and truly our necessary first small step.

    There is time for this, easily, but it could be getting shorter. So, I for one will not be putting it off any longer.

    Hello OtB:

    I’m back again with a question that has been in the background of my awareness of spirit energies interacting with physicals, but now has become much more complex with all of this focus on John L. Lash’s more mythological and grander state of affairs, and your own equally big-time, ‘Big Guys’ also, of course.

    I am getting to where I could use clarification about levels or gradient qualities as well as numbers that make up the players from the spirit cast of characters that are in contact with physicals, most generally through mediums. There are those spirits that lay claim to have been physicals and now there are those , such as your ‘Big Guys” and the whole cast of ‘Wars’, so can you break this down a little bit for me?

    Hello OtB:  I listened to the link you provided as to John L Lash’s talk and as to your comment about his focus on the consorting of the Archons with the early jews, as you say, seeming somewhat extended, I’m wondering how is that co-conspiracy time position in our history in comparison with early christians, early buddists, early muslims, etc., any ideas about that?

    Also, the timing thing with non-physicals has a reputation as being a coin-in-the -air with many mediums since ‘time’ isn’t a part of their existence, – what sense have you received from your connections about their coordination to our timing? JLL’s finish about his vision of a franchise of Mystery Schools would necessarily lend itself to more time than the train looming over the damsel in distress tied to the tracks.  …forget that I asked, it is what it is and I just need to do what I can do with what time is afforded me. Altho’ it was fun to theorize my new cabin as a Mystery School with you and Lion Lady as the alternating circuit speakers coming through occasionally :>) !!

    What’s next for us to be exposed to from this very interesting, non-stop workshop you’ve gotten going? I’m loving it, don’t let up.

    Hello OtB:

    After some steam gets built up from your essays and answers, I find myself going back to these points and looking at them again and again perhaps in an adsorption process of some sort. I remember reading or hearing that one of the characteristics of the human ‘mind’ was that it was 100% open to suggestion, 100% of the time – in varying degrees depending upon the circumstances. This sounds like it might be, in some part, that interface opening allowing counterproductive, or those unfriendly to our best interests, access to our control central. Might I be chuffing up the wrong tree with this one?

    Hello OtB:

    It’s good to see you coming right back speaking your truth – that’s what’s real for me. And for me, I really understand how easy it is to be sorry about how I said something. Every time I think I’m being clever, by the time I get to the top of the stairs I realize how I have just come off as being silly… we all understand, because we all do it one way or another, one time or another. But you’re different here, because it’s about ‘the elephant in the room’, in here with all of us and you’re the one with the magic eyes and the big heart that is telling us what you see not what you think we want to hear, but what you feel we have to hear…..because of what you see, and we don’t -yet. Not in the way, the expanded, experienced and trained way that you see.

    I’m hearing you, I’m feeling you and I’m trusting you. I consider you an invaluable resource and am honored to be a small part of this dynamic that now surrounds me/us,  and you are the one giving it shape and form by your encouragement and assistance in my/our changing myself/ourselves into being able to see that elephant for what it is.

    Your emotion coming through is what may be needed to help this dynamic take hold and allow us to see that we’re the ones we’ve been waiting for, each in our own way. And what I am hearing you say, is that we need to quit ‘waiting’! Primarily, we need to get it out of our heads that we are very intellectually cool physical humans and take the simple steps into the natural world to rekindle a deep personal belief in multidimensional aspects of who we truly are as energetic beings, that we are more, so much more, than our physical body. The second part is to take this set of new experience supported beliefs from being intellectually believed in our ‘mind’ into the heart energies of knowing, of living it without thinking, of being – eternally being. And that to carry our new found awareness of, and experiencing of, who and what we truly are from now on as our essential core unending being. I hope that I’m getting this close to what you said. I’m getting a feeling of how so much of what you, and others, have been saying is starting to coalesce.

    And the ‘inner’ work you refer to is what each of us needs to do to find and effect the resolutions to our various conditioning’s such as self image, self confidence, permission, self esteem, etc., etc., that may have to be addressed to some degree to allow for the soul energy to fly free and take us, mind and heart, on to our appointed rounds.

    OK, can you imagine how silly I feel about my oh-so-clever reply to Dis and Mr. Pepper above.

    Thank you, On the Beach, for allowing me to feed back to you how your kind and pointed presentations are giving me more hope and clarity about my own path to trod.

    @ Dis;  Hello Dis, I may have a permanent grin on my face since I started imagining you chuffing away and shaking your bushy tail at those squirrels. That’s way more active than my standing still and swaying with any breeze! You better be careful, there could be a big ole’ 3 nutted boar squirrel eyeing you from afar.

    And Mr. Pepper, thanks for the level headed consoling, I needed that what with imagining Dis the way I do now!!!

    OtB, that’s a mouth-full to chew on for awhile, but we’re your fellow travelers here, so you don’t need to sugarcoat it so much just for us !!

    My first reaction to reading your words was along the lines of ‘whoa big fella, settle down’ like being on a horse that just saw a snake crossing in front of him, or like gettin’ inta’ gold cause the crash is starting….back 5 + years ago. I understood and heard your pain and impatience, it’s mine too, but I recognized my conditioned reflex to ‘not rock the boat so , give it time, Rome wasn’t built in a day, cooler heads will prevail, etc etc, ad nauseum. Then I finally realized that that was just the kind of thinking by the governing boards that led me to propose to the California Green Party Convention to adopt our colors as Black and Blue, since that was all we were getting from the expending of our energies.

    But as I leaned back in my desk chair and began to ponder on your points a bit, I began a step by step agreement with all of the many parts that I have known about for so many years. Some parts are very new to me, the characters and names up out of mythologies, as I commented on earlier, after my introduction to the Fallen Goddess Sophia writings of John Lamb Lash as to how deeply that resonated within me filling in so many gaps lingering for decades from my early outright rejection of christianity (small c very pointedly). Rejection of all the ways that I saw it being presented, i.e., hypocritically and with what I always termed as being ‘ignorant and proud of it’, which I think you are calling ‘arrogant ignorance’ – sos.  And so your characters of Aeons, Archons and Kali references are a little over my pay grade of knowing, I’ve only experienced the early flush of wanting to believe and opening up to believing at this point.

    But still, it’s not an easy pill to swallow being confronted so unswervingly direct as you did about all the conditions that my personal knowing acknowledges to you and to any other readers. I felt the pain of putting off my own declaration of personal sovereignty for all those decades, and wishing that I had met with the support and akinship that is blossoming around me now 40 years ago. I really just don’t know if it would have been so different for me, I’m sure that I would be blacker and bluer.  I made my stands the best that I could for as long as I could, until I couldn’t stand it any longer. That’s when I reached deep and embraced my belief that I could change myself if nothing else in the world around me, and look where it got me. I’m now a participant on TwoIceFloes and grinning like a Cheshire cat and talking to trees….. they’re not talking back – yet, so I intend to just keep on talking, telling ’em shit they don’ wanna’ hear, Like my Bro’ OtB -WORD , Bro’!!

    Awwww  Mrs Cog, you’re tooo much:   Yet another smile producer…thank you. On an almost serious note, I did have a flash today of feeling as being the tree when a wind came up and they all started such a beautiful swaying. I swayed with them in the initial instant. Well, itza’ start, what can I say ;>)? I am living in a Pacific temperate rain forest region and the trees here grow tall and unbelievably thin as they rush all together upward thinking that there may be a sun up there – seldom tho’. I’m talking a 30 foot tree that will be about an inch in diameter all the way up, maybe an inch and a half at the base and be a really hard wood, like a mahogany wood. The creek bottom thicket that I live in is a mix of lotsa different sizes  and different types of trees but these grow so fast and so thickly bunched together and interwoven with vines that with wind it produces such a wonderful subtle movement amongst them.

    Always love your sharing, thank you,

    Hey OtB;  Thanks for your considered re-thinking of a prime requisite of future communities – today you’re calling it spirituality and back up stream, on Aug 28th I was calling it magic. I think we may be starting to bump each other. Now I’m really eager for Lion Lady to come back and spend some time with this child, it could be starting to grow legs and need a mothers touch ;>).

    My reasoning for attaching myself to a seemingly esoteric or extreme concept is the extreme changes in the social environments and the headlong rushes into potential catastrophes that will have a huge impact on the psyches and memories of all participants and leave a wall of distrust about any forms of former societal living above survival. Free health and free energy ( maybe even free travel ) seem likely candidates for adhesion within a community. Those kinds of targets are already in some folks sights, right now, and they still appear to be magical, even if it truly is spiritual energy.

    I’m going out and look at a tree, I’m too old to keep on hugging ’em.

    Thank you OtheB:

    That touch, now looked at from eyes that have found support and affirmation through being led, not having ‘found’. but being led through portals of ‘there are no accidents’ awareness was HER gift of expansion, – the hallmark gift that just keeps giving. In many ways, I am daily reinforced that my decision to change my life away from and out from the State of Lies was my small light, lit from within that may have given me the courage, when opportunity presented itself, …..let me change that here and now and for all time to, when opportunity presented Herself, that I had the small light of change shinning just enough from my own volition that went with my plea to ‘No, don’t go’ allowing me to receive Her validation and amplification to my ‘change’.

    From my many years of seeking the ‘solutions’ from outside of myself through 40 years of environmental, social and political activism and the growing sense that my ‘life plan’ wasn’t working all that well for me, or for those around me either, that my commitment to ‘change’ to the absolute best of my abilities, was my key for the opening of my door of perception. This is all coming to me within these few weeks of connection with you people and your stories within this environment.

    Thank you all,

    Hello OtB, Hello Zenscreamer and Hello Lion Lady:

    I’m weak from reading this column of postings and am sitting stunned by my fortune to have the honor to be able to share in your lives. Not to share in by only reading , but by absorbing what I have read into my being and to ask humbly for permission to be considered worthy to join into your circle and share a part of me with you and with any others of like mind in hopes that the circle grows.

    Ten years ago I began a dance with prostate cancer that led me away from western medicine after 3 fail therapies. However, one was a blessing in disguise. This blessing was hormonal deprivation therapy which had me without any testosterone for over 2 years. I grew breast buds, I cried at some point with every movie, I began to see men around me being real jerks and I saw how I had been a very real jerk to my wonderful wife for way too long. Unfortunately that die had been irretrievably cast for our relationship. She understandably divorced me after 37 years. No regrets, some hard feelings at the time, but I’m sure that she’s very happy with her new man.

    About 5 years ago, as I was meandering my way back to Napa, Ca. from Uruguay via Bolivia and Peru, I was offered a friends large furnished home that was sitting empty in Arequipa, Peru to rest and relax as needed. While there, I did meditation to rejuvenate from weeks of buses and hostels. It was in one of these sitting meditations that a unique event happened to me. My meditations seldom ever had any visual component, but in one afternoon session I suddenly was clearly in a hallway, like a school, and as I walked along I saw a hooded, long robed figure ahead with their back to me. I was filled with anticipation and had a distinct “wow’ surge of emotion, which alerted the figure to my presence and they turned and looked at me for some moments. I saw no face or features of any kind because the face was shadowed. Then the figure turned and began moving away down a hallway and my heightened anticipation turned into one of my most heartfelt pleas which I remember distinctly as being “No, don’t go…”. The figure stopped instantly, turned around and moved directly toward me and my anticipation raced back up. As the figure neared me the right arm raised as if to touch me and did, on my left temple. ZAP, I was jolted to my right and regained full awareness as I was going forward leaving my chair as if to rise, but continuing forward to the carpet on my hands and knees !!

    WTF was that? It was all so unexpected, from out of nowhere. I honestly didn’t know what to think and didn’t have near enough experience at being aware of my feelings to remember much at all, except that I knew it was special and I suppose that was enough for me for where I was, heading back to finalize my divorce and get out of the house, stuff loaded into my old business storage area and head back to South America to cure my cancer.

    That changed recently when I read the Fallen Goddess Story on John Lamb Lash’s website as a link from one of these forums. I even commented there that something was happening to me that was illuminating for me, and it is starting to come to me more and more.  Your stories above are fleshing out my emotions and giving me a strong sense of confidence in myself. Looking back since that occurrence, so many things have fallen into place for me. I am so very at ease with my life, which is not a life of ease.  I hope others can relate to what is going on here on this unique site and with these unique individuals above.

    Thank you all,

    Hello Lion Lady:

    A fortnight has passed and I am still thinking about this forum and would like to say that having guidance from ‘other’ aside  – plan B is how do we behave without it? Within my alleged mind, I have been seeing that you seemed to be looking ahead with your infinite female wisdom to the possibility of a total reset being required, and if so, what might that look like, as a better/best working model?

    Please allow me, if appropriate, to reset my responses in hopes of becoming more in tune with you about this. From my experience there are 2 main necessities, first; matriarchal and second; small/local.

    I am reminded of a video sequence that I saw years ago shot in Africa, that was tracking a pride of lions, and in their territory was also a pack of hyenas. It showed the daily life of the lions with the females doing all the work and the male enjoying his leisure. One day, the pack of hyenas cornered a lone female and were working her down when the bushes nearby exploded and the male lion burst in under full power, and hyenas began flying as he flung them left and right and shook them like rags.

    There aren’t many human men like that, but there are some few worth latching onto, and I would venture a third necessity as possibly the inclusion of one of those men. Please excuse any obvious maleness in this or any of my other replies.

    Blessings of kindness,

    You have the key to my chest. You are playing my heart strings like a harp…., thank you.

    @ On the Beach;       re: # 8730 above

    This acknowledgement to our friend, Disenchanted, is so well placed and well deserved for the many ‘tuning-in’s’ that he is sharing with us. By bringing John Lamb Lash to the party, for me, because of the 1-2 punch that JLL has affected along with ‘On the Beach’, and the many offerings from so many others on this TIF site, my struggle to open my self to another level has been given a shot-in-the-arm. I have felt plateaued out for some time and now I feel that I see why – for me anyway. That was because I never felt included in a big picture, a really big picture, THE biggest picture, that had the clear ring of purity of truth to it like this Gaia-Sophia gestalt, now confirmed for me in my heart as coming from source. It excites me greatly to feel able to throw myself completely into this fray without lingering doubts that I am contributing to my own demise by not being able to totally separate from what permeates this world with death….so move over Nature, because Dog-Boy is bringing 3 live-in angels with him on board as soon as possible.

    Kindness’s to all,

    Hello Lion Lady:

    When I was cogitating on that subjects question to you, I felt a tug on me somewhere that made me qualify it with what I said. OK, so now I’m patting my pockets to locate my ticket to ride, because now we’re are talking ‘miracles’ and from where I’m sitting, that’s what it’s going to take, and that’s what makes me feel very positive at just this moment.

    So let me cast out another experience in my past that I feel is a necessary component for this kind of ride. I am the newby and least experienced in the ‘miracle’ field, but I am experienced, so please bear with me (Texans only know how to talk around a bush to define it without rudely calling a spade a f**king shovel).

    When I made my commitment to throw away convention and seek my personal expansion into the realm of miracles to deal with my cancer, I began with shot-gunning for ‘answer’ and that took a couple-o’-three years, but finally an intuitive in upstate NY, that had studied under Jane Roberts, with Seth,  took me on and I got an ‘answer’. Read ‘goal’. I wasn’t prepared with my physical conditioning of 60 years to deal with the ‘answer’, that I “believed that I deserved to die” and so I jerked myself around in so many ways including discounting the intuitive and what she had said. But, earlier on with her, I had asked her for how-to’s, and she had recommended 2 books to me, one of which I had read early on. But when I got so frustrated after months turned into years of my ego negating her and her advise and me finally sitting in my room alone in a big farm house on a remote farm in south central Brasil having read every ‘how to’ book in my collected ‘how-to’ library, except the second book that the intuitive lady had recommended, did I begrudgingly read it. It turned out to be Seth’s self proclaimed  ‘how to’ book that he had dictated to Jane Roberts 50 years earlier for us mortals to have in hand, that allowed my expansion to explode, in an instant, beyond my ego to my miracle of the cancer disappearing.

    I want to address 2 points from this long-winded dissertation that I feel are germain to a solving of this challange we are choosing:

    First: That “How-to’s” are tools that need to be in the tool-kit of any solution seeker, and that the tool maker needs their tools out there in as many kits as possible for the seekers to have ‘at-hand’ when they are ready for the tool, not waiting for the tool manufacturer’s agent to decide if they are ready or not. So, lets open up a little on the pooling of our tool supplies and maybe that will accelerate how effectively we arrive at our sought-after solutions, collectively or individually. And I want to acknowledge that we have the Cog’s to thank for whatever opportunities come of this meeting of magic that may emerge.

    Second: That magic is the tool that is needed for this solution and that we are the seekers that are qualified to use these types of tools, acknowledged that some much more than others, but we all have experience in magic, which makes us magicians, so instead of re-definning the ‘goal’ for an umptheenth time, lets reach into our tool box for the action item tools that are prescribed to us from the source of all magic.

    Do I find any agreement about this, or am I flying solo here?

    Lion Lady:

    I can’t help but sense that we are all looking at this from gigantically big, broad and bold perspectives but that our approaches to achieving this are wonderfully different.

    I was enthralled with your posting and it has bubbled up in my alleged consciousness a number of times. I think that you took a long first step in answering your question about why deal with established communities as opposed to starting afresh and informed, at least to me you did.

    Lion Lady, you darling, you -where among your peers/peeps are you going to find people who will sustainably react and feel and think like African, Native American or any other relatively remote ( least effected by modernity) tribal group other than that person in your mirror?  Now, I’m sure that there are several more just like that person in your mirror in the world and if anybody could bring them together you could. And, if you do, I want to marry your cat just to hang around in your kitchen. Because what you wrote was LOVELY to read. So count me in for a ticket on that ride, even if it’s a far rear seat.

    On d’ Beach, you too, you darling, you ! Start small, do what you love, lead by example. Be able to change easily, then do it again, or something else. Your Big Guys said the key was in the doing. Did they say bigger was better?

    You guys are already applying this to solving the worlds problems, who’s gonna’ clean the toilets?

    You two are also very easy to love.

    @ OtB  re;   # 8308

    Please help me understand how I can follow your earlier advise to me about something-or-other for me to be gentle to myself, when you are, in rapid-fire succession, giving me months, if not years of work to do to realize my own solutions to whatever questions that I may have asked you. There isn’t much gentle about my journey as it seems that the further I try to go, the behinder I get.

    I lovingly view your responses as encouragements and am in awe as to the beauty and love that comes through with each and every one from the openness and straight forwardness of your answers. I will always be indebted to you for allowing me into your life through your writing.

    My hand is up as high as I can stretch it to indicate my interest in you opening a dream state forum.

    Thank you for these truly beautiful answers, and I will now begin my written transcripting so that I can carry your suggestions with me as I dig my septic systems, chase parts for my randomly appearing workers and re-do most of what gets done in my absence. You know the drill, doing something different from the way ‘they do it here’. Dreaming may be my best shot as ‘real life’ seems to be getting a little ‘compressed’ for me, and it effects my energies and ability to focus for in-depth periods of meditation.

    I will begin tonight to try what you suggested to me above, and thank you so very much.

    Glynn & his 3 Dog Nights

    PS to my fellow forumer’s – I have 3 dogs and they have 1/2 of my double bed at night. They wake up early and slowly since every night is cold here. We all take about an hour to gently and lovingly spend time with each other and I view it as a gift to me to experience this time with these angels before getting on into my days. These dogs personify pure love, and for a stranger in a strange land, it is some blessing to receive every morning.

    Od’B:

    You got me on that, I quickly left Texas, and went to Haight/Ashbury by way of Carmel Valley, breathing (inhaling) much more easily!

    OK, from above re; entering existing communities: SO far, from my experience down here, every community will be expecting you to contribute something practical and tangible as a skill or service, over and above that you will be spending some money there, at least initially.

    Place, or environment will be the large factor as to the perceived value, quality and longevity of all communities, i.e., climate, seashore, mountainous surroundings, touristy, cultural, density of population, remoteness from services….. These factors will be key influences of the kinds of people that are already there, attracted to, or can settle into and thrive, and in what numbers or with what turnover. For me, these factors became more and more important because they are more fixed and outside the influence of any negotiated or political environment established within a compound. I found it nigh on impossible to escape having the LIE sucking away energy outside of strongly indigenous centric areas. Probably because of the money part of the LIE, and the most abused get by with the least reliance on that. And the strong indigenous identity as also resisted the LIE of religion.

    Where does that leave us? At a place where very few outsiders are accepted or encouraged, so we must deal with what it is we are truly looking for within ourselves and that ‘within ourselves’ is our spirit

    One advantage that shopping existing communities is that you can evaluate what you are getting into and how your spirit is responding to that known. It’s like picking a new dog. You can go with a puppy hoping that you can control it’s maturation with certain given costs such as chewed up precious treasures or shop more developed dogs with a greater sense of getting more immediate gratification by seeing what you are getting. WOW, that sounded like we are looking at the difference between how a female spirit approaches this decision process from how a male spirit might. I think that I suddenly am in over my head as to who’s in charge of the what, when, where and how – so lets get back to just plain spirit.

    As to course correcting an existing community, that seems like a lot of energy that could be spent on your own spiritual core as long as you are spiritually in tune with the environmental part of place and can find sufficient spiritual balance potential with an existing community and focus your energy on your contribution(s) perhaps by example only. Remember, no expectations….no disappointments.

    Lets also try to keep in mind the most macro of environments; – the whole world situation seemingly coming to perhaps unimaginable changes and that best laid plans of mice and men and all that. As Od’B has said to me, …”be gentle with yourself(ves)”

    Maybe the organism of ‘community’ is not one that can be pre- anythinged, each individual has to approach it decision by decision and all primarily based on cellular acceptance of decisions made by spirit coming from a place of knowing. That sounds good to me. What is working now is my acceptance that I have been, in all my past, unaccepting of my singularity with every aspect of my environment and am at this late date, having decided what environmental zone I want to explore by living in and while there, work to solve common(-unity) problems that obviate themselves – almost always by time exposure!

    I think that I just echoed 4 or 5 of your paragraphs above, and also, all those gods know that I’ve seen my fair share of hijackings, but we just cannot live our lives in fear. Just think of those possibilities as opportunities to taste the sweet wine of revenge if that becomes any reality that I’m involved with, even if ‘just’ by friendship.

    So, from what you wrote above Lion Lady, and you seconded Od’B, what is it you guys want that you don’t feel that you already have (besides the slam-dunk roadmap that I want too). Lets play with those toys next. ….and don’t Bogart that joint!!

    Many thanks, Od’B (Please accept my colloquialism of your nom de plume, it “floes” thru my alleged mind so much easier without that hard ‘T’);

    Your use of the term ‘lucid’ fits everything that I have read or understood, but did I understand above that a.) you can initiate contact with your Big Guy during lucid dreaming, b.) Big Guys initiate contact, or c.) both occur? What was the chronology of this occurring for you? How did you get introduced to lucid dreaming?

    The why of any warnings has escaped me and my books are packed away and unavailable, but my memory of it had to do with warnings that very complicated scenarios could arise that might leave a person’s psyche locked in places without an ability to exit. Or, maybe it was just some ass-covering that the publisher’s lawyers insisted on being in place. It did remind me of similar warnings circulating about LSD, back in tha’ days, so until I uncover my books, it’s an open question. But then, weren’t any warnings to you about “…not nice entities” an open question to you prior to actual confrontation, and maybe there is some similarities within this analogy.

    I still remember a very vivid, but not lucid, dream where I protectively stepped in the line of fire from a roof sniper shooting at my wife, very dreamy stuff,  and when the bullet impacted me I woke up having screamed  “NO, NO”  just prior to impact, waking my wife ! That is sorta’ a built-in safe-guard with regular dreaming as I can remember ever hearing / reading about, the waking up at any death experience.  Now, if an experience like that lucidly went on into the after-death experience what do you think would happen ? Just wondering from an inexperienced perspective is all? My experience is just in having a boring or repetitious dream and stopping it and going to something else, whenever I have tried to bring up dead friends or relatives, – nowhere. I was thinking tho’, of the possibility of trying to bring forth the prior image of an entity as maybe a stronger connection than I am able to do meditatively. Am I exposing my ignorance about all of this by any chance? It would be no surprise what-some-ever if that’s the case, since I so truly am.

    My best wishes,

    Glynn
