Last night I searched a term and accidentally pasted my last post here into google.
The NRG post showed on the search page as number one and 'this' was the next link.
'Five Grammatical Errors That Make You Look Dumb'
https://www.copyblogger.com/5-common-mistakes-that-make-you-look-dumb/
Oh ,CRAP!
But it could have been worse, it could have said;
'Five reasons everyone knows your (you're) stupid'.
Or
'Five reasons you should kill yourself'.
On the other hand, I saw a spellcheck error here that corrected Akashic to aka shit.
But nothing in spell check and google but binary code right? I wonder...

On a side note.
Today I am reminding myself how easy it is to be misunderstood here.
How this is a place for both horizons and mirrors.
How life is much about exploration of oneself, and of comradery, and little about conclusions.
I just had powerful wave of Deja-vu as I'm typing this.

My father took me to a lot of interesting places. But being a (Lawful-Good) Paladin
some places he never did. Later, giving rein to my (Anarchist/Good) Rogue side I found people like this.
Some of the best times I ever had. Honesty, loyalty, and more tolerance than some may think.
There were lines not to cross, maybe not the same lines as mine, but you understood where you stood.
I respect people who have boundaries, they tend to respect the boundaries of others.
I'm not sure about boundaries. If I'm an American, or Homo Galacticus, or something else.
Nick said something about a bird flying around and drunk on pollution. Not remembering who it is and shapeshifing to deal with stimuli of the moment. I tried to find inspiration in what he said, but I only found sadness. I tend to feel about things before I think about them. Still thinking.
In the mean time, it's Sunday, time to go to church.
By the way, if you are unfamiliar with this culture, and think this is vid is a caricature or exaggeration, it's not. Yet a lot these folk know how to be still too, and each is individual.

The first rule of book club is do not talk about the book club
I expected to hear that in the post :<
Hail Hat!
Im a new poster here too. Two months I think, I don't know time is weird here. Other than common courtesy I haven't noticed any other rules.
To each his own I would say.
I have two metaphors I live by here at the moment.

1. When I jump out of the plane(post), be sure to remove my parachute first.

2. When I navigate the threads I keep the weight on the balls of my feet, knees slighty bent,
upper body upright, and remember to breath.

Some of your posts lately have been quite intellectually stimulating.   Please tell me, do you use khufu breathing, fire breathing, holothropic breathing or is it another method that you use before you post?

This inquisitive padawan would love to know...

Who needs parachutes?
When I breath, I breath.
When I sit, I sit.
Intellectualy stimulating? Then perhaps I have failed to express myself. I ask you to look again, and look deeper
friend.

@Possible, have you read The Hidden Hand conversations?
Ack! I'll put that right behind language crystal, 170 Dragonlance books, All the harry potter. You folks are tough!

When I was a child... Huck Finn and Winnie the Pooh taught me everything I knew,
                      mighty mouse and betty-boop to stir the stew.
                     
                      Then saw a light distant but true,
                      I followed a trail old and new.

                      I thought in the forest, but it was the skies.
                      I came to rest my sword and eyes.
                     
                      I found old friends weary with tries,
                      Powered by nick-nukes and fireflies.
                                    Love, Possibles

When I was a child... I had my 40th birthday. I remember thinking I should start to act like an adult. I sold a motorcycle and bought a car. I bought adult clothes designed for success. I let reason and intelligence be my guide.
Later I realized that it wasn't working for me so I dumped the posing. I lost some of my new 'friends', (some were quite attractive) but realized I didn't like being around them much anyway.
A was also reminded that 'If it's not broke, don't fix it'. I'd like to say that that adage was a lesson learned but Im still learning it. For me that rabbit hole runs way deep.
A friend here posted a Darth Vader vid with me in mind. I had not forgotten to address it and say thanks, I was just waiting for the right time.
Vader and Skyrim's Paarthurnax are powerful archetypes for me.
Vader's (Anakin's) fall was lamented by our man Obi Wan because Anakin was the 'chosen one', the one who was to bring balance (baal-lance?)(baal-ants?) to the force(Source). The consequence of that fall we see in the 'prequel' films. In the end it wasn't Vaders Dark Lord who redeemed him, it was his child (Luke's) faith in him. That never faltered, it was a faith that had no intelligence or reason but just was.
I wondered too, about what the balance of light and darkness meant. I dismissed the concept of 'means justifying the end' that some hold so I was kinda stuck.
Nicks persistent hint that Hegel's dialectic was misunderstood was were I found a clue. Looking at the dialect from a positive viewpoint clarified many things for me. One was that the dark-light thesis antithesis could result in a synthesis which is far more than it's 'con'stituant parts. So much more so that It makes light and darkness nearly irrelevant. I have my neck out here a little because I haven't digested this fully but I think it's close.

The day I saw 'Return of the Jedi' I visited a mentor. He wasn't there but his young daughter was. I asked her if she has seen the movie and she had. We talked about it for a while and I joked (half-joked) that if there was hope for Darth Vader, there was hope for me.
She said, "Yes, all you have to do is take off your mask." You could have knocked me over with a feather.

Paarthurnax too was saved (spared) by a child. Dovahkin can mean child of the dragons. You players spared Paarthurnax right? Say what?
It occurs to me at this moment that Anakin and Dovahkin sound closely related. But Ive already been too long winded.

Do you often stop running a meter from the finish line?
Thanks Coach, sometimes I still need a kick in the pants.

When I was a child, I acted more like an adult in many ways.

I'm learning to color outside the lines now.  Some days it's harder to go outside those semi-permeable walls than others.
For my friend Firefly who is learning to color outside the lines.
And thanks for contributing to this thread. It's intent was to encourage people to
talk about what they knew/learned/remember as a child. As a parent, you no doubt learn/remember from your children. I don't have that awesome privilege. I was born equal parts rogue and paladin. My early school teachers mostly got the rogue.

All you freaks muse this-- WTF is wrong with some men today can t or won't they talk to women   civilly today.Another actor won't shake hands but whips out and wants a woman to shake his Johnson! And even Sci-Fi has  its carloads of freaks as well nothing is sacred.Who's that sci-fi writer that ran off to the far East
  On the plus side Poland along with the Czech Republic -have a lovely lady friend from there-and Hungary
have all issued a huge phuk U to the EU !! All tough dudes and dudesses. Anyone know the name of the group on you tube I believe that sings of the Poles and WW2 and how brave they behaved.? I'm still looking for the band. Hope its in English.
People in the west have been stripped of their identity and power. I don't make excuses for rude behavior in myself or others but the fact is, men and women in the west have been tricked and put at each others throats. The substantial powers of both creation and nurture that is generated by male and female energies in a complimentary healthy environment is a primary target of those who live for chaos and destruction. There was some truth in the women's movement of the past and there is some in the Alpha 2.0 for men today but things are carried to extremes. Sometimes shock and awe is appropriate but most times, I don't think so. There is an desperation under the surface here because subconsciously we know how much we need each other. Every male has a little female inside and female, the male. These are also corrupted within ourselves I think. The danger here is more profound than any war or physical disease and the consequences of failure on our part I cannot begin to fathom. It takes a lot of faith to lay down your arms in the midst of battle but I see no other way here.

I saw this article yesterday. Im not recommending anything in the message, I just thought is was interesting.

When I was a child... I noticed the difference in behavior between a dog who had 'escaped' and was having a brief fling before returning home, and one who was lost.
One made me smile, and one frightened me.
Both dogs existed in me too.
Later on things never really changed.
Most day's I'm content with my place in life. But now and then I feel Ive lost my way, knowing I'm not where I should be, nor remembering the way back. Running or biting the hand that wants to feed and rescue me, not responding to my true name. But those times are brief.

When I was a child... I would ride my bike to the church for confession once a week. Sometimes when it was slow the Priest would take me to a private room in the back and hear my confession. Sometimes he would ask me if I had any sins 'down there' and he would touch me down there. I had no idea what he was talking about, but he was a nice man and it was the 'house of God' so it must have been ok. It never got any heavier than that but it was the first time I ever experienced a shapeshifter. The shapeshifting being energetic and not physical. I was too young to understand what was happening but I remember noticing the change in energy.

I've never been much for ritual;
Maybe a wind-up on the pitchers mound,
or cleaning my 'sporting goods',
or a glass of wine (or three) with one of the beloved,
or sitting quietly before teaching or just because.
Just a few years ago I did a house cleaning and gathered a bunch of old documents(contracts) that had my name or signature on them, one document was my First Communion Document. I don't remember the priests name but it would have been on the paper somewhere. I didn't bother looking, I just burned the hole stack. I cried but I'm not sure for whom.


When I was a child...Children could play outside after dark. Parents had to drag us inside for meals and bed.
One time (around time of the Priest thing above) a nice t-bird pulled up to me and two of my young friends. It was new, maybe a 63. A stranger asked if we wanted to go for a ride. There was no way I was going to but it was obvious my friends were about too. I started screaming and crying. The driver paniced and drove away.
It was weird, I wasn't really scared, and I felt like a fool afterward. Later on I realized that playing/being the fool could not only save youself, but others.
I never told my father about the t-bird or priest thing, even though as a father and because of his chosen profession it was his business to know and I understood that. Being emphatic I knew the burden my father carried though he never showed it. I didn't want to add to that, and by my fathers example I learned to bear my own burdens. My father looked a bit like a very athletic Dean Martin. He was a singer and dancer too. Women loved him.
As a personality he was like Bill Cosby, loose and fun but you didn't dare cross certain lines. In his professional life he was straight forward and honest but he sometimes reminded me of Detective Colombo. Pretending to know less than he really did. He acted like that around people who feared or patronized him. I didn't know why some people feared my father. Now I do. Poetic Justice of the Peace should have been his title.
After he retired he lived in a few esoteric communities. He was trying to make sense of what he had experienced I think.

When I was a child... As family we used to go swimming at an outdoor pool. This property was about fifteen miles from where we lived. It was a spartan but decent country club setting with a nice rec hall too. Lots of people worked there. They had thier own softball league and fields.
This place was on property which was surrounded by four barbwire topped fences. The two interior fences were electrified. A few people worked at guard posts and patrols, the rec center and grounds maintenance but most worked inside the mountain or underground. Inside was one place my father never took me and any conversion about it was strictly taboo.
One day we were swimming and one of my fathers acquaintances joined us in the pool. An officer that looked and sounded like an American but wasn't like any American, or any other person I had ever met. My childhood was very multi-cultural, but I don't think this dude was from 'around here'. I distictly remember him smiling at me and then laughing boisterously for no particular reason. The music 'The new Fifth Dimensions song .Up,Up and Away. was banging out on the speakers. I felt a short moment of paralysis but quickly broke free. He laughed again.
We played catch in the water for a while and I had a grand time. My father and mother watched quietly but silently from lounge chairs. I asked my father about him later, he shrugged and dismissed him as a co-worker.
In my entire life my father never lied to me. But I knew when/what not to ask. I never thought that introduction
was coincidence, I think it was purposeful.

Some here might think (and I wouldn't blame them) that I was/am compromised by handlers. And that I am not my own person. I assure you that is not the case. Freedom of choice is prime and, for me anyway, Ive made that plain to many whom, over the years have tried to bind me to agendas. My sins and virtues are my own.
The only clown I like is Homie, and 'Homie don't play dat'.

Right, but for the wrong reasons. Face to face with an unredeemed spirit, it will challenge your authority. You must assert your will as an individualized consciousness of Creator, without fear, without apology, without uncertainty. It will abide.

Ive had to learn to walk alone most of the time. I'm real picky about who I have along when I'm in the shit.
But I'd be your wingman any day, any time.
