    (I have had some difficulty being on my computer, staring at the screen, and so have not been around here much. Avalon for me is an in-depth place where I have to read a lot to feel like I have the pulse of each conversation. I do visit faceboog a little, as it lends itself more to a hit-and-run type of social interaction, and I just posted a note for US Thanksgiving that I thought would be valuable - and warm- to share here as well.)

    Hope to be back here more often, and soon!

    =========================

    A Thanksgiving Suggestion

    Allow me to make a suggestion, for Thanksgiving Day 2016 (for my US friends.)
    Let's all remember to raise a glass of pure water, and send a loving and thankful toast to the brave and strong souls - The Water Protectors - at Standing Rock. Then, think about that water in your glass for a moment, how incredibly precious and critical clean, potable water is. Take a moment to allow the concept of "Mni Wiconi" - Lakota Sioux for, "Water Is Life" - to be recognized as truth. And then, drink the water, that sacred water, and it becomes part of you.
    .

    .

    ...oh, and maybe send a few dollars to the Water Protectors, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and allies, if you can spare a few. And share this please. It isn't controversial or even political. We all need clean water.

    Hello, All -- I have an indirect message from Ulli, sent to me by Foxie Loxie, who asked if I could post it here.

    (context about Hurricane Otto: http://theguardian.com/world/2016/no...torm-caribbean)

    Hurricane


    Thank you, Foxie.
    But I believe we won't be affected by the winds, just get a larger dose of the usual November rains.
    The worst that can happen here in the mountains is landslides.
    Otto's eye is entering land in a few hours, just north of the Costa Rican border with Nicaragua. The government has been very good controling the crisis, with organizing evacuations, and even putting workers to look out for cattle and animals.
    No school today, nationwide.
    (you may share this on the Here and Now thread if you wish)

    Thanks ulli and Bill; I've been wondering where ulli has been lately. Me myself have not been very active but pop in now and then but anyway, the silence from ulli has been very loud esp. in this thread that she started.

    Now let's hope for the best that this hurricane won't affect her and nobody else too much...Years ago I was engaged in collecting items like clothes, bikes, wheelchairs and what not to Nicaragua. It's sad that pple who already have had a lot of trouble with war and dictatorship also often get afflicted from natural disasters

    POST TRUTH

    it seems to be used as a polite smug way of saying that something is BS. The mind controlled sheeple do not understand why there appears to be an erosion of objectivity in public life, for example Mr Trump, who gets away with talking BS off the cuff, and who relies on a lot of falsehood. what the sheeple do not appreciate is that this entire reality , and many of its fundamental tenets are really BS, and when an expansion, and revealing of greater truth starts, it appears to be an up-welling of BS.

    A timely video, Baby Steps. Only an hour ago I came out of a dream that reminded me of how to bust out of the matrix. Each of us has to walk out of this reality by discovering the custom-made solution for ourselves. Why? Because each has built-up a convoluted, personalized template that’s contributed to the false belief of self, life and after life by way of parents, community, education, religion, philosophy, mislabeled life experiences and sky-tech and AI tech.

    My approach is to keep asking questions. Not the kind of questions that collect more data and detail that keeps us going round and round at the same level. Ask the kind of questions that are relevant to both 1) unclog and 2) expand awareness and creativity. Notice how solutions arise in subtle ways all because one has committed to and acted upon the ever expanding perspective(s). Or is it dimensions? Or both? Both.

    Entertaining and at times a dizzying journey. Today was strange and literally dizzy. Here and Now. Sipping morning coffee @ 6:30 p.m.

    Just wanted to say last night I dreamt I was posting on the board and I posted a video of Opera Winfrey with new breasts. And someone said they wanted to watch it again to look at Opera's breasts. Kind of random, but theoretically possible, I guess.

    Magnetism....very interesting, but since I do not have a scientific mind, I can't quite understand what he's talking about. Does the Electric Universe theory fit in with what he showed? Just wish he didn't have to YELL so!!

    Yeah, he can't stop swearing. Makes it hard to watch. I guess he does not know the rules of debate or argument -and the major one is: never become emotionally involved in the data you are trying to share, for if emotion is injected, it will be rejected before you even begin. Emotions shut down logic, intake, and cognition, so they must be wholly avoided when trying to impart difficult data.

    Everyone has a different minimum of emotion where the data in the communication gets lost, but it is safe to estimate that quiet debate will illuminate 5-10x people over that of heated discussion.

    Listening to:



    We seem to have circled back to Tangerine Dream (sounding-ish music). Which IMO, is no bad thing.
