    And the tower is still a mess. Needs railings and lots more work. The stairs are done.

    Hi PL. Ernie Nemeth, hello!!
    Everybody has been too too sweeeet. (Too too sweeeet is a Barbadian expression. Barbados was once a sugar island)
    I’m deeply touched by this welcome.
    How ARE you all, and how have you BEEN?

    Yesterday when I saw Bob’s post I wondered what he had meant when he mentioned “ details”.
    And last night I guess I found out, having woken up at 1:00 AM, and traveled mentally to a certain casino in Laughlin, Nevada.
    I guess I will have to find extra nap time today, to catch up on sleep.

    I had no idea that there had been an Avalon Conference.
    And within a UFO conference!!
    Could I have survived that much stress? Would have been total overload to my Aspbie self... physically, emotionally, mentally, psychically and perhaps even spiritually.
    Plus I have come to hate airports, and those awful security lines.

    Knowing myself I would have searched for the fun people, which to me means the “boys”,
    and probably would have ended up hanging out with Target, DNA and Axman.
    Nothing personal, but having fun, for me this is the best way to remedy stress.

    My interest in the UFO phenomena has faded with the years, and I see it more as just another reference point, like a water cooler that people can gather around. Just like soccer, which Costa Ricans are crazy about, is just nothing more than a reference point.
    The interactions of individuals create energy fields that keep the river of life flowing.
    This thread is such an energy field.

    Life has changed a lot, and for the better.

    My business changed hands in 2016, and the new boss is a nice guy who cares more about good service than anything else, and his birthday is only 3 days after mine. So, it has almost been a lesson in how to better communicate with myself, ha!

    I have developed a profound love of smoking meat, although I tend to reserve that type of grilling for cooler weather. I have created a bbq sauce recipe that has all the family and friends begging for more. And another great recipe for southern fried greens which is to die for (literally, as it involves frying a pound of bacon, then frying the greens in all that grease).

    Every chance I get, I am renting a kayak or taking my raft down the lazy creek that runs through the area where I live. Such peace, especially when I'm going alone. It feeds the soul.

    The magical practice has gone to ground and re-emerged as a pure act in consciousness. The mind recognizes the need, and universe follows suit, or universe is tickling the mind ahead of time with what's coming. It's hard to say. But, two nights ago, you had a cameo appearance in what was otherwise a weird and nonsensical series of dreams.

    Like I said in the PM, I sense great times ahead!
    God bless the Fae

    I absolutely thrive on new beginnings. What made the last few years appear so stale was not only that I missed the stimulating and thought provoking atmosphere of Avalon but also this darn thing called the aging process.

    And how time seems to be speeding up. And how I don’t want to leave a mess behind for others to curse me when I’m dead and gone.
    But then, not too long ago, I found some videos on YouTube that deal with the subject of longevity and that perhaps the research being done on telomeres will lead to a simple and inexpensive pill that when ingested daily will add another 80 years to my life. 80 years of healthy life. Imagine!!

    Well, just imagining such a scenario pulled me out of depression, and I was flooded with fresh ideas. Not only gardening ideas, but about construction, and about developing real estate. And once I felt that excitement I could feel new energies coming my way.
    This is the power of hope. Hope raises consciousness, and higher levels of consciousness create new worlds.
    Anyone else have had such or similar thoughts?

    Not there yet but yes the aging thing is constantly on my mind these days.
    My solution so far is exactly the opposite of yours.

    I have decided that all evidence points to this being a ride. I think me and mine are on vacation at a theme park. We've been standing in line a long time. It's finally our turn. We watch the arrival of the car ahead of us. All the participants are laughing and exclaiming how real the ride seemed. Some want to go stand in line again for another ride. And in the car we are whisked away, memories wiped, powers removed, and we begin the ride we here call life.

    That's the best I can come up with. I cannot accept that life is defined by death...

    Either way, Ernie and ulli, y'all are pointing to the value of treading lightly in the world. It brings to mind the verses about being strangers, in the world but not of the world. Hopeful on the one hand and detached on the other.

    Interesting take, Ernie. To me the idea of a theme park brings mixed memories, and some even filled with horror. To do with vertigo. One even is of a vivid dream, which I had around the year 2000, where I was in a crowded theme park, and was being chased by a small UFO. Had to run and hide inside a tent. ( That reminds me...I once worked as a fortune teller (astrologer) in a tent in Barbados in the early nineties, at a fair at government house.) Maybe the dream has to do with that Another story)

    Gurdjieff would have said “which I is talking?” So maybe we can agree that we are multi-dimensional beings, and with our shifting levels of consciousness talk from whatever level we currently occupy. The reality of this dimension comes more into question when we see its absurdity, but when we see our own progress from lessons learnt, and face our challenges full on we enter another reality, where it doesnt even matter anymore whether we are dead or alive.

    Of course, some of us talk about having made a pre-life soul contract, and don’t want things to end until that imagined contract is completed. Others have powerful memories of more perfect worlds and can’t wait to get back there, and have perhaps forgotten that they had a deep wish to come here initially, either to help this world with its transformation, or to develop certain virtues that they were lacking, or both.
    As an individualist I would never want to insist on making everyone’s belief the same.

    But I would like for people to question what they are doing here in the first place. Serving the greater good can be done in numerous ways. And the greater good will benefit not only ourselves, but also our children and grandchildren.

    Eventually we will live within our deeds.

    I go by the belief that the human body is like the cosmos, with trillions of individual cells, all different, all have their function, all have their membranes (walls) and all transform eventually.
    I don’t think that there will ever be one single answer for all.

    It's like I don't even know what to call you. Welcome back, friend. Maybe Rad could reapply, now, hahaha!
    Hi, Reilly!

    So much has changed in the world and in my life that 'Belle' no longer fits.

    Seems we all have grown and achieved better balance and peace in life. Feels great!

    And a big hello and welcome back to you, ulli!

    Great things to come...indeed. Somehow I feel we are being called back for a reason.

    In the words of an old and departed friend...All is well.

    For me, hope is a word that means just out of reach. What raises consciousness is elimination of beliefs and choices that tax the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual faculties.

    Higher levels of consciousness comes through actions and deeds, creativity, love, self love, knowledge, discover new ways of doing and living the ordinary day-to-day, do whatever brings joy, exercise in whatever form that has life-long staying power, reflection, meditation, moving meditation (Tai Chi), yoga stretches, and food and drink that contributes to health, healing and longevity, etc.


    I finished up Gigi Young’s on-line courses on the "clairs". I spend part of my day experimenting with and journal it. Some benefits are: vivid dreams, ideas, solutions, increased synchronicities and the time between Q&A’s is often immediate.

    There’s a lot of free information over the internet from many sources that’ll help you either become aware of or brush up on your natural abilities. Usually there’s one or two clairs that are the strongest, but all can be enhanced with practice.
    • clairvoyance - inner sight
    • clairsentience - inner feeling
    • clairaudience - inner hearing
    • claircognizance - inner knowing
    • clairaugustus/clairsavorance/clairscent - inner smell and taste

    For me, hope is just shorthand for joyful expectation.

    I sure hope that beer will be nice and cold, when I get off work! Start with the small stuff, and don't forget the gratitude that should immediately follow such fulfillment great and small.

    Preaching to the choir, I know. Y'all just don't know how much I've needed this back in my life. Got me misty eyed, shucks.
    God bless the Fae
    God bless Me
