    I feel special being a part of this outpouring of such heartfelt love and understanding!

    @Paula, I sent a personal message a couple months ago, however your mailbox wasn't accepting messages at that time. I'll send another one

    @Rachel, can you provide a link for those of us wanting to subscribe to your thread, "Experiencers"? I feel some of us may be greatly helped by participating!

    @Ken, I love you You have an ability to bring people together, both in public view and outside the scenes. I feel that you have continued the love born from friendships formed at Laughlin and on-line, and I deeply thank you for that.

    Laughlin enabled us to build the most meaningful, heartfelt, like-minded and spiritual relationships, even beyond the Forum, and I know I will never be the same. I am in direct contact (daily in some cases) with some of those I met at the meeting. These relationships have helped me enrich my entire life in ways that I havenít the words to describe.

    For what it's worth Runningdeer, you and a few other people are among a small group of people I truly appreciate. When my health went south you and a few people came to my aid even though we never talk (I never really chat with folks on the net). I'm more or less a regular guy so my words are all I have to offer but I wish I had some degree of money or power to make sure the wind is always at your back.

    In life and on the internet there are just absolute ****heads everywhere and I've become accustomed to this. I have a ton of people in my phone to call but only a very few are true friends. Hell, if any. Truly. I think we all intellectually understand this but not everyone gets it if that makes sense. You are one of the types of people that can be a true friend. You are Gods lifeline for people like me.

    I support your computer lite diet, it's a healthy one for sure. God bless you and may you win the lottery.

    Super brine

    Dissolve rock salt in water over night- about a third salt to two thirds water

    Apply to skin irritations, spots etc(not cuts or wounds )

    It is an anti septic - really brilliant

    I won the lottery when I walked away from the tick-tock-clock-world. I traded a larger retirement pension for a smaller one. When you donít require much because you no longer need to fill the beast of ďgotta have it to feel completeĒ, the smaller one nets out higher.

    Thereís more time for the immeasurables: peaceful heart, walks, study, even chores aren't chores. I wish that for everyone sooner than later.

    Default Re: Here and Now...What's Happening?

    I read this article from writer Elizabeth Gilbert and I think it will resonate with lots of people here. I think. I might be wrong.

    This is a map of the Mississippi River created in 1944 by cartographer Harold Fisk. It is called a ďmeander map ď It demonstrates all the various paths the Mississippi has taken over the millenian. The different colors represent moments in history when the river jumped her banks and change her course dramatically. Native Americans used to move their settlements along with the riverís constant shifts and changes , but Americans saw things differently. In the 1940ís the Army Corps of Engineers decided to lock the Mississippi River into a certain course. They built walls and levees and declared : ď these are now the official boundaries of the Mississippi River. She doesnít move and inch from here. ď Nature of course has had different plans.

    Elizabeth Gilbert says she is bringing this up because she has been thinking about controlling her own nature. She sees the rules and boundaries that she has set for herself over the years and how she has often failed. She thinks about the vows she had made for herself and others about where she is going to be next year or who she is going to be next year. Endless, expensive , stress-inducing efforts to civilized the river of her being. But if you were to look at the history of her life, it would look very similar to that map here. This map could be a portrait of her own heartís journey.

    In her own words she says ď I often say that after a certain age, every woman in the world could write a memoir called : Not What I Planned . We change. Life changes. We often feel shame , confusion , anger about all those shifts and pivots. But what if we just trust the river? She seems to know where she wants to go. Onward ď

    That got me thinking about my life. I have never been the type to plan too much ahead of time , never one to make a list of new year resolutions. No set of boundaries for myself. I trust my inner river and do not make long term plans. I think I am more of a go with the flow type of person.

    Edit. Added another thought.

    I won the lottery when I walked away from the tick-tock-clock-world. I traded a larger retirement pension for a smaller one. When you donít require much because you no longer need to fill the beast of ďgotta have it to feel completeĒ, the smaller one nets out higher.

    Thereís more time for the immeasurables: peaceful heart, walks, study, even chores aren't chores. I wish that for everyone sooner than later.

    I live the lottery. The kind thatís important to me. Time. Time to do and not do. Watch. Sit. Sharpen imagination, creativity, silence, inner voice, sensations, wind songs through trees.

    Last week, a little woodpecker guy came knocking at my screen door for an afternoon snack of bugs and what-nots. The ping-ping drumming on to the window made me hold my breath just so heíd stay a bit longer.



    The day before yesterday, I met up with a frog who sat on the country road a foot out from the edge. We were face to face for an eternity. It tickled my belly. When a car came around the bend, I scooted him back to the safety of the marshy grasses. I wished him well and reminded him to look both ways before crossing.

    Iím grateful, for the lasting memories created with all people both on line and off and places Iíve had the opportunity to travel. Theyíve help to round out this experience - life.

    All a priceless lottery.
    Hi Paula and Strat and All who are hanging out in what's happening...

    I said THE SAME THING about the lottery... I won when I was fortunate enough to be positioned where I am now. Yesterday on my walk I saw a TINY box turtle, frogs, a HUGE hornet paper nest up in the trees, 3 deer, heard so many insects, smelled the earth and felt the coolness in the shade of a hot afternoon in beginning fall. It felt as breathelessly exciting as my run-on sentence!

    Life in my little world is so good. I LOVE my new career as a massage therapist. I have as many contacts with people as I like and and have animal friends who trust me and are happy (dogs, cats, mini-dinosaurs).

    I listened to a video about Alex Tanous last pm. He talked about the presence of an energy that I feel too, often. I LOVE that the world can be so paranormal when we are willing.

    What I cannot quite understand is why everyone does not have the life I imagine is most suitable... one where we are not FORCED to do and behave a certain way BUT we just naturally act towards ourselves and others in a BEAUTIFUL synergy of love and wisdom. I really feel "the reality" where we decide from deep knowing of truth and then act based on our deep self confidence. I consider this KIND of truth to be like the golden rule... not "content" but a principle to be applied....It has occurred to me that I just cannot believe that a GREAT WAVE is not flowing to wash away what looks TO ME as confusion about what we can be, do and have?

    Thanks for pulling me in Paula... I usually just lurk here.

    Love is real and practical and I am SO GRATEFUL for this energy in my life.
    Going to post a cool video about Alex Tanous I am listening to again as I write....

    There are wetlands and streams where I live, so itís not uncommon to see Blue Herons stealthily cut through the skies. To this day Iím unsure if it was the angle or if one of them slipped through a slit in the earth fabric. It was quick. First, there was a long beak, grayish head and neck, and then the rest of the body and legs appeared. He flew low and close enough to the second story window that if it were opened, Iíd smell his silent wings in flight.

    Itís the same area and window where a white crow came for a quick visit in the pine tree. A few months later, a black deer on the country road waited for his buddy to cross the field thatís by the waterfall pond on the other side of the property. (photos below)

    It was a kismet day this past August 1st, when two Blue Herons stood on a sand bar in the river across the road. Typically, theyíre loners. And a couple of days back, a Blue Heron made an unusual 3 or 4 zig-zagged flight pattern before he decided to head to the water-fall pond.

    So, so many blessed critter teachers around here that encourage one to stay present and with an open heart. ♡

    There have been quite a few situations recently where animals--fish--have "asked" humans for help and where animals have helped humans.
    Think there is a raising of consciousness going on.

    A few years ago while living in the mountains I went outside to catch any cool breezes on a hot summer night. In past years I would drop into the hammock, but in the spring the squirrels had chewed up the strings and completely destroyed it - just for fun!

    That night I tossed a beach pad onto the ground near a cedar tree and lay gazing up at the stars in a meditative mood. Suddenly I heard a thumping just a few feet from my head. I knew that sound; it is the warning thump skunks make with their front feet. It was telling me that I was scaring it and if I didn't stop I would be sprayed. I didn't move, too scared although I appreciated the warning. The skunk thumped again, both of us even more scared. But, heart thumping, I slowly moved behind the kindly sheltering cedar and got out of the skunks way.

    The skunk moved on and I regained some composure and moved back into the house.

    No more hot nights summer on the ground.

    Hi Rosemarie and Maggie. I lurk, too. Thanks for the video. Iím still watching.

    Elizabeth Gilbert says she is bringing this up because she has been thinking about controlling her own nature. She sees the rules and boundaries that she has set for herself over the yearsÖ
    Both your posts resonate with me. If this place is a construct, why not create my own paradise?

    Iíve posted before. It feels like Iíve lived 4-5 lives in this one life. Much growth in each. This one is the longest and the best so far, all because I rewrote the rules in my game.

    The animals, the dreams, the synchronicities are some of the confirmations that demonstrate my little corner of the world continues to flourish in health and creativity and knowings that itís not just another a cross road, but an expansion of the one Iím building.

    I feel special being a part of this outpouring of such heartfelt love and understanding!

    @Paula, I sent a personal message a couple months ago, however your mailbox wasn't accepting messages at that time. I'll send another one

    @Rachel, can you provide a link for those of us wanting to subscribe to your thread, "Experiencers"? I feel some of us may be greatly helped by participating!

    @Ken, I love you You have an ability to bring people together, both in public view and outside the scenes. I feel that you have continued the love born from friendships formed at Laughlin and on-line, and I deeply thank you for that.

    Laughlin enabled us to build the most meaningful, heartfelt, like-minded and spiritual relationships, even beyond the Forum, and I know I will never be the same. I am in direct contact (daily in some cases) with some of those I met at the meeting. These relationships have helped me enrich my entire life in ways that I havenít the words to describe.
    justntime, thank you SO much for this! It started my day in such a lovely way!!

    And to everyone else reading this Here and Now, as Delight and Paula have captured so beautifully, above, spending as much time in nature as you can is, IMO, so very important!

    Edit: It has enabled me to become more in tune with the magical qualities of this ďholographic ,Ē or, as I prefer, malleable ďreality.Ē Iíve found myself open to the flow of, and moving with, the positive energies all around. Following the pull of my intuition which in turn enables synchronicities to occur..

    Rosemarieís post, above, touches on this as well!

    Take off your shoes and walk, stand, or sit barefoot, allowing the soles of your feet to remain in contact with the earth.. ground yourself!.

    Paula, what an absolutely beautiful place you live in!! Reminds me of where I lived for a time, in Arkansas..

    This may have been posted before but it is such an amazing film!
