"Impeccability of the word can lead you to personal freedom, to huge success and abundance, it can take away all fear and transform it into joy and love. You can attain the kingdom of heaven from this one agreement: Be impeccable with your word."

Did you hear about the Buddhist that refused Novocaine during a root canal?

His goal: Transcend-dental-medication


Greetings Everybody... Greetings Craigco~ (Now that was Funny)...LoL

My Mother is Buddhist & this reminds me of the time she & her GF was taken to the Dentist by my Father & his Buddy-
[before I was born] (Mind You First Dental Appt with this particular Dentist)

The Gentlemen dropped the Ladies off & said they would be back~ come to pick them up later however my Mother &
her Friend made a decision to 'ish nay' the Dentist & walked out... Made me think... they probably Thought... we don't
need Man's Intervention...LoL... (Transcend-dental-medication) might do the trick... LoL..

Oooooooooooooh~ One of my Dearest Friends who's a Theologian (who I call Doc because of his PhD in Divinity & Economics)-
actually had a root canal done without anesthesiaSurprisedor any pain blockers...
He told me how he did Self-Hypnosis to get through procedure... will not have any type of Intervention for future ones either...
(due to his Faith... so that is why I mentioned Credentials or would not have brought them up)
I gave that a Thought (Noooo meds... hmmmmm) & then it popped out of my Mind...LoL
He may not have felt a thing however... I am not quite ready to go without a pain blocker or two for now... LoL....

Thanks for sharing this... had me chuckling hard...
Happy Heart Day Everybody (I call Valentine's Day- Heart DayEmbarassed)  Blessings~

I don't know if it worked or not, since my post isn't here at the moment. 

China, thanks for posting those agreements.

 

In This Moment, I savor my senses.

My feelings are real.  They are the result of all that my senses report to my brain, based not just in the moment, but also on my history.  In the past, I could see and hear, but did not appreciate the way my brain brought all the inputs together.  My feelings and reactions build upon all of the information that my senses report.  I am aware of my senses and have learned to value them.  It is through them that I identify my feelings.

I want to add that I have not appreciated my intuition, but I've realized with awareness, practice and trust it will never steer me wrong.


Greetings Everybody~

I am working my way through the Threads & hopefully not miss anything that pulls at me to respond...

***Greetings Hepburn~
Re: In This Moment... especially in reference to savoring of senses... I'm reminded of how Some take for Granted what he or she is Blessed with when there are Others who do not have these Gifts working in its fullest capacity... I like Many have to rely on extra-sensory because of my Health...which I don't consider a hinderance but a Blessing... because it brings forth Appreciation...
When my Sight through my Two eyes are blurred... what is left to work with? For Anybody who has watched the series Kung Fu... for example...
or even Karate Kid... movies where the eyes are blindfolded... & inner- Senses must work... in high gear... Life depends on it...
The *Value* they bring... cannot be measured... Intuition I imagine can be pushed to the side when it should be in the forefront at least from my Personal Experience.
& Awareness- Practice & Trust... again brings me back to the Martial Artist... without this... he or she is Vulnerable...
*Awareness* of Surroundings... *Practice* skill(s) innate... Strengthening them... for like Sports Player... without practice... skill(s) can be lost...
& re: *Trust* of Own Instincts... the inner- Lie detector when Words are spoken by Another... how to discern the Truth...
Sadly Some wouldn't know the Truth if it hung on the end of his or her nose but maybe sometimes experiencing the Aftermath might Awaken.

Thanks for sharing this HepburnLaugh

***Greetings MisGuided~
Re: *D*'s work & I hope all works out in his favor... It is Good You are bringing forth Inspiration & being Supportive of him.
I imagine he would Greatly Appreciate that... I like Many Others wish him the Best!
Adore Your Avatar based on what You wish to bring forth...
& I was pulled for some reason to Symbolism of Lion- in reference to *Personification* & in same breath Authority & Command
over Subconscious Thought... as shown to me & the Lotus... which is One of my Favorite Floras...
born of mud... also reference to Divine Birth... & how its healing qualities in reference to Kundalini... I bring this forth to share how
I was pulled to notice...
Great Choice to accompany that which You wish to convey... Durga...

Re: the PM's... Gosh... I am so on cloud bajillion with the PM thingy... (gently slaps Self in forehead)
I was looking for the stereo instructions on the gizmo... I prayed just for my Post to Post in its entirety & not look like it was
in need of an Exorcism... LoL...
Hope You were able to get the PM worked out... Mine had PMS... LoL...
Best Wishes with Your Treasure... (referencing Your Dog- Companion... which to Some is like their Baby... so a Treasure...
Heck I have my Betta Fish who is my Baby... LoL... He recognizes my VoiceSurprised)
It is Good You stood Your ground... I imagine it felt very Empowering!

***Greetings chinadoll~
Re: The Four Agreements...
Be Impeccable with Your Word... & You can measure the Impeccability of Your Word by Level of Self-Love...
What I read spoke Volumes because I have noticed like Many on this site how the Word is Powerful but also can bring Pain.
How easy it is to Speak... & spill without Concern also Speak... & spill with Compassion...
I like Many try to be Consistent in mannerisms also actions... with Follow-Through... On an Anonymous Site such as this...
Words can be Misconstrued & or Misused... It can be Mishandled... I take that Word... Mis... as Make It Substance...
or even Mental- Integrity- Soul... different ways of Interpretation... We can only be Accountable for our Own Actions I would
think... How One Interacts with me... gives a clearer indicator (to me) of his or her Own Character-

Yes I may Post Long or Short... but why should I or Another measure the Length of Post... I would think the Thoughts left behind
would be measured.
I'm used to Expression to Emphasize... Self- Love can be exuded through Written Expression ALSO how the Other might receive.
As much as I Love to read... There are Others who Love similar & a few Words may not Answer Questions in Mind...
Some things need further explanation...
I'm reminded that Some Words might be hard to hear from Another... so easy to push under rug... or slam door in Another's face.
So easy to Live day to day doing the same thing expecting different results... Self- Love lingering in the mirror hoping for a face lift.
Adore the reference to *Impeccable*... No Man is Perfect but to bring Best foot forward with Confidence... without mask worn.
I imagine that would speak even more Volumes of Self- Love...  I Personally don't think it is Vainglory to tell Self...how much You are
Loved (with Humble Heart speaking)... for if You don't tell Yourself... should we expect & or rely on Others to? I learned to have a
*relationship* with Self... to Better Understand where Self is coming from & Appreciate Self when Another may not...
Firm foundation built on Confidence not Ego-Pride... but Empowerment (not at Cost of Another) ...

Thanks for sharing that chinadollLaugh

Have a Great Happy Heart Day Everybody... Blessings~

Hey all,

 

Andii, nice to see you pop in.  How're you?

It feels like things have imploded on this site.  I was considering not coming here much but there is so much that I still need to work out in my own life that this site still feels like an important tool.

I'm having some feelings of being ignored/abandoned in my life.  I know it's just like here - people have their own reasons but it still doesn't feel good.  Logically, I know it's not directed at me.

Oooooooooooooooh You know when I read this Agreement~ especially in regards to *concepts* & *action*
Powerful there- Not trying to get all religious up in here (LoL) but reminds me of Faith without Works is dead... so basically
*movement* *action* One of the Keys...
the lips can move but without *follow through*... it becomes just a Word...
I was almost tempted to put a sticky on my forehead... *move it or lose it toots*... LoL

Hey all,

 

L & L - Thanks for your words.  Think it's tied to not having recognition by parents except only when things are wrong - then there is recognition.  I'm in a serous situation at the moment and I'm recognizing that I needed something from someone so I pushed the envelope to make my point known.  Now it exploded.  Life is such a tricky balance.

I just wanted to stop in and say a quick hello to all of you!!

I will post another "agreement" soon. I have to find my book! Surprised

 

Lani, I am sorry to hear you are in a serious situation. I hope things work out for the best. You will be in my thoughts. I am sending some positive energy your way!! I have had those same feelings of being ignored, from time to time (usually from some family members, unfortunately. Then when they need something, they call. The thing I don't like is when it is assumed that I have "nothing to do" and can somehow drop my plans when they have some kind of "emergency".  Sorry, but poor planning on their part does not make it an emergency on my part. I hope things have calmed for you.

 

CraigC, so good to see you!!

 

LoveandLight, I love the toddler laws! Unfortunately, my ex-husband lives by those same laws, as you well know!!

I also love the proverb, I had heard it once before.

 

I will be back when I can!!

Hey all,

 

Situation escalated - police are now involved.  Not sure where I am but I did get the name of another therapist my friend has gone to and I may try yet again.  Strange not to feel safe in your own home.

 

Thanks for your good thoughts China.  Went to my sister's for a couple of days and that helped some.

Lani,

I am sorry you are going thru this. I only have a minute or so, but I saw this and wanted to offer support. I know that feeling of not feeling safe. I hope things get better for you soon and you can relax and go back to enjoying life (don't we all want that?!).

 

I will check in with you when I can. If you ever want to talk about it, you can send me a pm and I will check it when I get a chance.

Take care!

Hey all and the crickets,

 

Besides giving the needed attention to the crickets, I wonder what it's like for the people that aren't posting anymore.  Have they found other outlets or have they found the inner peace that I still look for?  L & L, what do you get out of these boards?

 

A friend of mine journals and that doesn't work for me but this seems to let out a little of the stress.

 

The same friend has found a boyfriend that is the "right" type of Christian.  After several years of being divorced, this is a definite plus for her.  However, although she is progressing in the "right" way (not having sex, trying to keep her friends in her life, etc.), I am uncomfortable with our conversations.  She started the whole thing by doing mass emails detailing everything about their dates.  Now, she turns everything in the conversation to him.  I start a whole different topic and she makes the comment about him.  I understand her excitement but something feels off.  I haven't made any comments because last time she started to date someone and asked for my input, I was blasted.

 

I have stepped back and not called so much.  I'm hoping the shine wears off soon.

You bring forth a Good observation re: have they found other outlets... I imagine they are also observing from the *outside* & when it
*feels* just right... (almost like dipping toe or fingers in tub water to sense if right temperature)
& whether or night that tug to leave Comment... whatever pulls at them to respond to they would.
Blessed to have them here...

I know in the Asian culture... Crickets are Good Luck~ My Elders would mention & how they are kept in bamboo cages like One would do
with a bird... Admiring their Gifts...

Re: what do I get out of the boards?

***It seems to be A LOT Calmer & with lessened Animosity along with Nonsense beyond Unbelievable has seemed to quell. The Energies
that appeared like tsunami receded to the Peaceful oceans for now & I pray will continue to be as such.
I had to pinch myself before to remind... I am not in Kansas anymore... do Grown Adults actually act like this in a *Civilized Society*... LoL
or are we back in Stone Age? This is not the 1800's... & I Thought Man evolved in Conscious where the *obvious* was *obvious* & Salem
Witch Trials was a Travesty of the Past to NOT repeat in the Future. (or am I wrong on all levels- I asked myself... LoL)
Maybe a jumbo enema was needed... LoL

For awhile I was branded with a Vicious Scarlet Letter but the Lord took matters into His Own Hands... Fingers pointed curled & retracted.

I prayed & He answered... I would think the Boards would be a place to exchange Ideas- offer Support & help those in Need... not a stage
to Humiliate- Defame Character etc... the curtains for now have been closed & there is a new *clean up* Act... which I hope continues to
perform so to speak (my Metaphoric Mind... LoL) Hopefully my exhale helped Answer Your Question...

Re: Friend who journals & airs Personal business about *New Boyfriend*

***What You have spoken of reminds me of a former Close Friend who was demoted to Associate due to her behavior & the aspect of
*Sharing* Some might call or *Bragging* about this *New Boyfriend* can have both a Positive & or a Negative taste to it based on
how she receives *feedback* on her excursions with this Man. I imagine You are Happy for her to have found Someone she might be
equally yoked with however the manner in which she is dispelling this might be a bit over the top. Based on sending *mass emails*...
Why let Everybody know Your business in such detail? Now IF she wishes to place this Man on a *pedestal* that can pose a situation
when it comes to her Faith... if You know what I mean... No Man comes before God... (based on reference You mentioned about *right*
type of Christian) for I experienced similar with now Associate who spoke of this Man she *worshipped* above all else... & in the end
he was NOT what she placed him up to be... she became his doormat- footstool... what else... Oh... cauldron to catch his spit...
called Repercussions of her actions... (she had done similar to Others)
he fell off her *pedestal* & she fell on her face... in the dirt she once walked upon & left Others who supported her
through the so called *Lonely* Days... she left those Loyal with Love in palms to give... behind... I remember that tumbleweed crossing
my path... LoL... & dirt kicked up in my face... (I looked Surprised standing there holding the shirt off her back that once belonged to me)

If You are not Comfortable in conversation with her... I imagine there is a reason her Words don't sit well... I felt similar with the Associate
I was in contact with. At the time it was because she was more engrossed in him & became Insensitive to Others... basically it was ALL
about her... that usually falls under Word: Selfish...  when Others would speak... they weren't heard because her ears were turned off
however her mouth was still running... (key in the *all about me* ignition)... & being *blasted* is no walk in the park either...
hopefully she will see the Light & not just in his eyes but within the Lord (based on her religion)

It is Good You have provided an ear & shoulder... It is Good You wish the Best for her... & I imagine it Understandable *the why* as to
decrease in communication... the ears & shoulders can burn with constant rambling when it is All about Her...& IF she does not
demonstrate Concern or Interest in what You have to say... becomes somewhat One-Sided... & that is not balanced...
nor does it help with raising the Vibrations~  becomes a drain after awhile...
(remember how Spongebob looks when he visits his Peep Sandy in her tree dome) [not a pretty sight...] LoL

Once she comes down from Cloud 9... hopefully what You Enjoy- Treasure about Your relationship with her can resume in a Positive
Light- direction & IF IF IF not... then I imagine there would be more *steps back* where You are NOT hindered in Your walk...
she can choose to remain behind trying to figure out what path to take...
Bless Your Heart for being there for her in times of need... Now she might want to remember Your Insight counts & You do as well.

Wish You the Best with this! Have a Great OneLaugh... Blessings~

Hey everyone,

L & L, you are one of a kind.  I like your verbiage - demoted to Associate.   I suppose part of my fear here is that I'm in a place similar to our past host, Hepburn.  I'm finding that many of my friends are being demoted out the door.  I'm finding that the idea of having new friends is nice but I am really not up to the challenge.

Are the boards cleaned up or simply abandoned?

I still read .. what there is to read, but I  haven't posted much because I'm not comfortable with the thought of military
and civilian police watching the site.  Hesitant to say anything that could be
misconstrued as harassing or threatening someone in the miitary, I feel too
inhibited to say anything other than slightly generic.  I posted lyrics, and
they were removed.

WEll shoot, what's the point of pOsting if they're just going to be removed?  Z said on another thread that there's a gazillion "reads" but few posts on some threads.  People are here, just not posting.  I have to agree bevdee, police watching the site is unsettling.  For me, what's most unsettling is Destiny calling the police on Chinadoll-I haven't gotten over it, and her full scale attack on MaStrong- and let's just take the rose colored glasses off, she did that to lash out and hurt a poster here.  That's beyond crazy, beyond flame warring, beyond even obsessive.  It's I don't know- the most unsettling thing I've ever seen in an online forum.  That somebody would enter into my personal life uninvited and unwelcomed, just to cause grief- now THAT's scary.

 

The little bully ring had nothing going compared to THAT.

 

Then I read that Chinadoll and Destiny and auto99 are the same person and I wonder- is Destiny doing this to bring the site down?  Because if she is, it appears to be working.

Hey Andii,

 

Yeah, I know that's like three posts of mine that have been removed.  THe first two were when the site was all glitchy and irritating.  THe third was the other day.  Confused

 

 I probably haven't been as careful, as I should have been, about my giving
out personal info, but I've tried to be careful about talking about my job. 
THere's HIPAA and confidentiality to consider.  I mean there's no way I would
post or even email about work from a work computer, because they have authority
to keystroke what I do on their pc. (Remember when that happened to Free2choose?) And because I have posted from work, I
haven't posted much about my job, especially anything negative, or that would
give away where I work. If my employer ever found out that I was posting from
work,  objected to it for any reason, or was trying to ascertain my state of
mind, I  certainly wouldn't go on FB or here and talk about disciplinary actions
my job was taking because of that, etc.  My bosses could check on that.  
Well, I hope I haven't

Hello all,

I am also feeling distressed about the situation that happened with Chinadoll.  I can completely understand people abandoing these posts.  What is truly disturbing is the idea that Hepburn created this post with the intention of guiding people to think about their lives.  I cannot control what anyone posts but just simply state my feelings.  I feel sickness at the clash between Chinadoll and Ma Strong.  It turned into something ugly.  I also feel angry that Destiny or whomever the poster is can infect this site with such vile intention that people felt compelled to leave. 

I can understand the compulsion to talk about this situation but for myself, I'm coming to the conclusion that it keeps the ugly feeling going which is the intention of Destiny or whomever it is.  I'm struggling with the power I have given bullies in my real life so this quote is to help me and anyone else that would take a moment to consider this.  I'm writing this also to honor Ms G and Hepburn that have left this site.

 

In This Moment

I let go of what others think about me.  When I seek attention and praise, or fear ridicule and rejection, my connection to (I'm choosing to insert my own word here) to the universe is wearkened.  I find myself treating others as if they were my universe.
