    You are such an inspiration Paula, thank you for realising you are YOU, despite going 'fishing' to take yet another strong breath,

    I agree Foxie. Paula is right on. And it should be shared, even if to those of us posting, upon a quick review of what we've written, recognize that we are stating the obvious, or repeating something well known. It can't be stated enough, especially when it is colored with our personal experiences.

    Who knows how important shared cognition is to those who are not active participants on this forum, but whose energy is still shared by those of us who write here. If we are anything beyond the words written here, AND WE SURELY ARE..., we feel the effect of the perceptions of others we share with.

    I have the habit of first seeing my part in the whole and my whole in the part of the narrative we are talking about. I do see myself as very different but at once the same, sensing the need to share those things that should be, and most often turn out to be, common in our collective realities. I know this from talking enough to be able to prompt and then hear the stories of others. In many moments of shared realizations we find a great sameness in our perceptions, our experiences and our intentions. I have then gained much and lost nothing in the process.

    Thanks to all here who share and those who work in an apparent silence by reading. A Warrior's Creed involves a duty way beyond the sense of self, as the self is defined to us as the journey with others.

    By the way, it is totally cool, correct, as least from this one man's singular view, to spend your entire time here alone. You may or may not gain all you can in the process.. and we all may or may not be the better off for the singular focus.

    What many do not state, which is obvious when going deep inside, but often hidden from our shared comments, is the power of singular contemplation and living. Why does anyone ask, or even put a moral judgement upon a soul who walks alone. If you have been deep within... "alone" is most often experienced as an illusion, a delusion and not possible. In my experience of alone I gain the gift of responsibility and interaction, not separateness. If it is possible then, at least with me/from me, enjoy the journeys!

    The Creed! I'd say we need to keep this up front where we can all refer to it on occasion more easily. There is so much wisdom here!

    WELCOME 2018!!!!

    A poem by Marianne Williamson

    "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure!
    It is our Light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

    We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
    talented, fabulous?
    Actually, who are you NOT to be?! You are a Child of God!
    Your playing small does not serve the world.

    There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
    people won't feel insecure around you.
    We are all meant to shine, as children do!

    We were born to make manifest the Glory of God
    that is within us!
    It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone!

    And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
    give other people permission to do the same!
    As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence
    automatically liberates others."

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Don't forget to go back to the beginning of this thread & read through ALL of it to gain some wonderful wisdom shared one year ago!!

    Just a Bump for those who haven't listened to it yet
    I'm a simple easy going guy that is very upset/sad with the worlds hidden controllers!
    We need LEADERS who bat from the HEART!
    Rise up above them Dark evil doers, not within anger but with LOVE

    This reminds me of a story told by Joseph Campbell, about a samurai charged to find and kill a man known to be spreading lies. Upon cornering the now terrified and desperate man, his target stands as tall as his rattling bones allow, and delivers a glorious wad of spit into the samurai's face and armors. The Warrior feels everything you or I would, but stays his killing hand at hip. He speaks to the criminal, evenly and calmly. "You will die without the false dignity you attempt to rob from me, by lowering me to your station with your filth. Next time you see me, please have prepared yourself as a man would." Then he left.
