    I'll share this with you as someone who has never used fb, and not as a criticism of any one person, but the words of someone who has seen the beginning of almost all manipulated social platforms for what they are, an insider's view. That view is with someone who has raised himself from the inside and not the outside..

    That's an interesting phrase you use, taking a nap. For many of us, my son and most of my friends, we consider the nap being on FacePlant, Palms on the Face, etc. knowing the artificial construct being so obvious to us. I get the myriad of reasons people use it, but I've never seen fb as doing what it says it does, as relying so much on these written words to actually convey the one on one personal reality we desire to share and have shared with us. Yes, this is a criticism of many social platforms as they act as if they are something they are not. The only one I know well who uses it does so only for his profession and even in that case I am critical of his 'need' to use it. If I had a business that I thought needed such a platform I would create my own and be honest about it. It also has been the rare occasion for my son to use it to contact someone in our estranged family, a very large one at that, and he got no response from that. It is not odd that a platform, superficially, externally crafted to supposedly give insight into people did not do it at all for him.

    We do put out some personal detail of ourselves here on Avalon but this is based on a real depth of personal accountability, inspiration and a comfortable amount of heartfelt sharing. I doubt that fb has the same social recognition, certainly not the same amount of allowance for a differing set of views, something that fb now is doing it's best to censor, purely for social control, political narrow mindedness and commercial dominance. May those who have felt the need to use it find and make their own platforms, ones that reflect the true intention of their expressions and sense of community.

    I have never been affected in any depth on any social media, including Avalon, and this is certainly not a knock on it. It has it's depth as far as the media of it all can afford, but it is not a song I hear in this room, the music I make, the people I love, nor does it even come close to my personal contact with people who I meet in the real world of what many would, in their words, call impersonal personal contact, out in the atmosphere, away from this house.

    Most often words pretend to be something they are not, nor are they ever going to be, and for us all we accept the truth of our human depth beyond mere words. These words in the true value of their intent only have validity when they live inside of us in the affirmation of our self-acceptance, the inspiration of our real world lives, the senses alive in the moments that imprint upon our souls' memories. I am not a Face in a Book, nor the image of myself, even as I see it in a mirror. I am a Heart in the Soul of a Body Shared.

    What is red brick dust used for?
    Red Brick Dust is a traditional protective and cleansing powder used to clean your front steps, window sills or other entrance or doorway. It can be mixed with floor washes or sprinkled directly to ward off evil, curses, and keeping enemies away.
    Make Red Brick Dust


    *****

    "What is Red Brick Dust and how do you use it?" - snippets
    “…Red Brick Dust, it is really another form of protection but it has a history that is very, Very, VERY old, like about 32,000 years old, but back then it wasn’t red bricks but the mineral that we’d call red ocher.  It is believed that the use of red colored powders and minerals originates back to ancient man's use of red ocher as a sacred and protective colorant. Red Brick Dust continues this tradition and it is added to powders and mojos for protective purposes and is a modern substitute for henna powder, ground hematite, Red iron oxide powder and red ocher,  which are far more updated from the ancient idea of the protective power of menstrual blood.

    So red brick dust derives from the ancient use of red ocher clay for sacred purposes. Now where did this practice come from? Well a brief walk through history reveals that red ocher clays have been used medicinally and ritualistically since the earliest of times. For example, medicinal use of red ocher clay is described in the Ebers Papyrus from Egypt, dating to about 1550 B.C.   And ocher pigments were used by Cro-Magnon artists who painted pre-historic cave paintings in southern Europe between 32,000 and 10,000 years ago.  Also there have been found early primitive burials where red ochre clay was smeared or applied to the body or bones of those who have died as a ritual belief that it would help revive them in the spirit world…”

    “…It is also believed that it will magically prevent evil, especially one's enemies, from being able to cross it and gain entry into one's home. Other means of deploying red brick dust are to add it to one's mop or scrub water or to add a pinch of it to a protection mojo hung near or over the doorways in the belief to make it "brick-house strong”…”

    Good Day to You, Hym...Wonderful Sharing, Thanks!

    I primarily used facebook, a number of years ago, to keep in touch with Folks I met in South America.
    It became a platform to express my experiences and feelings and thoughts and views, primarily softly.
    I keep in touch with some immediate Family and Friends, mostly privately. on there now...
    and continue to post about the 'changes upon Us' in a positive and helpful manner,
    expressing the importance of each of Our Own Unique Abilities of Spiritual Heartfelt Influence.

    I feel We can 'affect' the Transmute and Transform and Transcend Energies in an upward and positive manner,
    wherever We may Be,
    in the 'helpful expression' of Our Personal Promptings : )

    https://www.facebook.com/eagle.spirit.507

    ...
    ...here and now,
    moved to the Lake house of my Sister and Brother-in-law's in my hometown and started breaking ground for the interior stairwell addition to basement that had been 2/3 finished with bedrooms and bath. It currently has outside concrete steps from the house with an entry cover over the door to basement.

    A little rainy the last couple of days but jack-hammered concrete stairs and walkway that will be removed by a Friend helping with his backhoe and dump truck...He operates machinery with his right hand and knees and 'whatever works', since he lost the use of his left arm in a snow mobile accident about ten years ago.
    He is truly a Giving and 'never giving up' Spirit...I am grateful to have his help!

    Funny, I need some brick dust right now to patch up some brickwork. I think I’ll just call in at the tennis club, where they will have finished redoing the clay courts. There’ll be a pile of the stuff waiting to be thrown out.

    Jordan Sather would say, “Hope? Hope not, Foxie Loxie." "It’s only a taste. I send you on your way to research and ponder. Godspeed with your discoveries.

    I’ve listened to about six of his videos. My sense is Jordan is a natural teacher. He’s good at summarizing the research. His knowledge base is diverse. And at times, he offers an interesting and fresh perspective.


    Jordan reminds me of many Avalonians.

    A not so important announcement:

    After god knows how many irritating years of getting interviews cut off at around the 45 minute mark, ive finally subscribed to whitley striebers 'dreamland'...so I can listen to the whole damn thing for once. It's actually a relief HAHA! It feels like load off. Its 5 bucks a month....why the hell did I wait so long?

    Anyway, go on guys..tell me how proud you are of me

    Mike, I am SO proud of you! And I finally replaced some burned out light bulbs in two lamps in my loving room after stumbling around in the dark for 2 months. What took ME so long? So weird.

    Glad you left it in......made me chuckle. And congratulations on the new bulbs too

    This might be a good time to announce that I finally steam cleaned my car after literally a year of staring at some unknown streak of something or other on my front passenger seat. That stain drove me mad. Day after day I stared at it...and stared at...and stared at it. And did absolutely nothing about it. Why???

    I know...why? I don't get it. I used to have a bad habit of never fully completing anything. I would always leave like .005% undone. It couldn't clearly be described as unfinished, but neither could it be declared to be utterly and unambiguously complete. Some part of me, though I am organized and tidy now, wants to hold onto the slob I was as a child.
