    Hi Ulli, just wanted to say (re the first bit in bold) I wonder how many lurk that used to post often?.... I read The Village every day and really miss taking part (I'm pretty sure I've read the whole thread at least once). I feel part of The Village but seem to have lost the what-ever-it-is to write, I think I know what it is but words don't come... I admire WCBD, Flasky, Norma and many others for their posts about their past, I can't, hence being the lurker I am. But, I'd love you all to know how much you do for those like me, peeking in, The Village is such a beautiful example of how life should really be.

    My love and gratitude to every one of you.

    So you want me to think less? What do you suggest I do? Have my frontal lobes removed?
    Only by thinking hard can I even begin to understand some of your cryptic messages, and so far the one about the "tasty razor blades" I'm still clueless.

    Forum fatigue would be a side effect of too much pub crawling, so I can see what might have happened there.

    The way I see it is that you get to know yourself here. Get in touch with yourself. That's all you have left when you leave this world. So to find that you can write here what's going on with you at the moment of writing. You get to choose what you want to say of course. You might be sitting on the toilet while writing on an iPad, something which was not possible in the old desktop computer days, but you don't have to share that. Guard your privacy.
    But maybe some of us then can respond to whatever you do write, even if only with a thank you. And with that response others learn about what it was about your post that they could identify enough with to be prompted to write back.

    And so it goes on. Even in the most intimate settings one can only get to know oneself, the partner is there, and shares thoughts once in a while but in partnership there can ultimately only be mutual maintenance, but never full knowledge of the other person's inner processes.
    My husband has no idea about what I'm writing here, while he is clicking through his various local TV channels, and I can only guess at his thoughts, assuming, perhaps, but never knowing what they are.
    So jump in, even if only to talk about the weather. Or your garden, or your pets. All of that is our human reality.

    This is definitely a scroll thread. And sometimes one has to lift a ton of dirt to find a diamond.
    Yesterday I did some practice runs with the Avalon search engine which resulted with some surprise discoveries.
    One only needs to know what one is searching for... then it is easy.
    So, having discovered what I want from life and what I want to offer in return my motto is now:
    "first find your own agenda, people!"

    I know I don't have to tell you that, as I can see you are already well on your way.

    I also wanted to clarify the earlier statement of mine:

    Quote This is definitely a scroll thread. And sometimes one has to lift a ton of dirt to find a diamond
    Just so that no one thinks that I was thinking of their contribution as "dirt"- I was not.
    I value all contribution that is not deliberate spamming with malicious intent.

    What I was really thinking of here was the space taken up by the original quotes we are responding to,
    when they become longer and longer, and one is not deleting the older irrelevant stuff.

    I am one of the guilty ones, but am now trying to remember to be more conscious of what baggage a post is carrying
    when I hit the "send" button.

    For the gardening post a few post back.

    I support local organic farmers and I am working on my own organic garden. Love the feel of dirt between my fingers. I can't bring myself to wear gloves. Dirty fingernails. Guess you would say I am low maintenance.

    I do scroll down through the post, occasionally landing on something that interest me. I would be here and now all day if I let myself. I will read short post, sometimes long ones. I love the photos and allow myself to watch a video or two.

    I try to thank everyone for their contributions, if I miss someone it is not that I don't appreciate your thoughts.

    This thread is large and in charge!

    There is a whole big wide world out there and I do try to enjoy it!

    When you're smilin'....keep on smilin'
    The whole world smiles with you
    And when you're laughin'....keep on laughin'
    The sun comes shinin' through

    But when you're cryin'.... you bring on the rain
    So stop your frownin'....be happy again
    Cause when you're smilin'....keep on smilin'
    The whole world smiles with you

    The great big world will smile with

    The whole wide world will smile with you

    I’ve written how no matter where I go, were all together. I’ve always had a Group since I came to the planet. Now, our Avalonian Family and beyond come together 24/7. That’s not a metaphor. The greater the number that gather, the larger the Light essence. Which attracts more of those ready to ramp up their essence.

    All of this is an outward manifestation of Inner Soul’s play.

    The energy signature is all one in the same. Integration of all past and futures are in the One Soul. Another way to see this is that the parallel lives awoke to see there is no dividing lines. Aspects work in unison for no specific purpose. Only what is assign to these cut out paper dolls.

    Why the paper dolls? To gather experiences all to awaken inner knowing that “this body” and the “parallel play worlds” is One Soul creating experiences. All spidering out in endless play.

    What’s the purpose for the paper dolls? None. We assign purpose and play it out which ends up taking us on journeys. It’s neither good or bad. It’s just play. There’s no itinerary. Just a journey of our own making because we are co-creators. It’s a natural state. We turn away from what it really Is:

    Scene from "There Will Be Blood". Dramatic, hilarious... or both.
    I love the acting, specially if you had seen the movie.
    I wonder what says Daniel Day Lewis to Elia on 3:29.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0469494/






    Hola Dan. Is this what it feels like to you every time you visit the Village? Hey, maybe practicing this stunt by Jim Carrey...
    might relieve some stress, too.

    Daniel, an oil tycoon, he should be baptized as a payment to buy a land rich in oil. This is the tension of the scene. Daniel hates Elia, the priest.

    No, Ulli. I don't feel like this in the Village. (but "something" in me, makes me (?) run away when i´m in a "spiritual place". "Run or you'll be caught and locked".
    I was "educated" in a religious school (Opus Dei...scary), so this kind of scenes make me laugh a lot. I see on Daniel Day Lewis character ...the Yes and No!! at the same time. Great actor. "Gangs of New York" is not a dramatic picture, NO, it's a Terror Movie just because of him.

    There's another angle from the movie "Elmer Granty". Burt Lancaster Such a Wonderful Actor.

    My question would have been: do viruses have mirrors?
    Besides, although some tunes punch holes in my allegorical aura I do not forget that, even in no-mind, the shadow stalks.......
    Posted once before, but addresses your question:


    Using the mind to look for reality is delusion. Not using the mind to look for reality is awareness. The mind that wants to free itself from all programs is itself a program, just as that which wants to dispel the mind virus is itself an expression of that very virus, the disease of the mind.

    There is no “original” thought, nor is there any such thing as an “original” deed. Every thought that any being could possibly entertain has already been thought innumerable times over, and likewise any action. This universe of phenomena is a grain of sand on an infinite beach, and this beach is but a grain of sand in the totality of manifestation, which is itself of the same nature as last night’s dream.

    Furthermore, in this so-called realm of apparent phenomena, there is nothing but delusion, which itself is utterly empty of any inherent self-nature. Upon careful inspection, some other phenomena apart from the delusion of human beings cannot be supposed nor demonstrated. Because that is so, all apparent phenomena are only delusions. There is no truth, only dreaming.

    Moreover, it cannot be proven that, having removed delusion, there is no delusion. Because delusion is pure by nature, it is self-illuminating. Because that is so, all phenomena are actually perfect props in the dreamy projection of mind called self and world. Because that is so, phenomena appearing in various ways simply represent the synchronous opera of the phantom body and mind – the engaging delight of That which is dreaming all of this.

    Likewise, even the apparent Awakened of the past, present, and future cannot transcend the complete purity of delusion, since it is nothing but a virtual reality, a non-binding, transient, and empty modification of consciousness itself, so when the fist is opened, what is there but empty air?

    Except in the degree of sense of humor, a difference between ordinary deluded beings and the so-called Awakened cannot be distinguished by the nature of phenomena. Just as the causes and results of a dream appear individually, under the power of complete imputation, determined by one’s angle of vision, filters, memory associations, preferences, and so forth, the individual appearances of the intellect are only flowers planted in the air, consisting of nothing enduring or substantial.

    Hey, we can always test Village thread knowledge by asking members if they know about the Village Barn
    and the fact that all Villagers can go in there when in need.

    And this one is a good policy, too, but not quite as good as ours.
