Here is how it works.... We go through the alphabet, and each add just ONE (Non-repeating) metaphysical word and its definition.
Once we reach Z, we can start over again with A, but.... no repeats. It keeps going, until we run out of words.

I will start with Letter A


Aura - The energy surrounding a person or the soul's 'life force'. It's vibration shows up in colors around a person, which reveals it's condition. It is omni present and has several layers. The normal layer to view is the physical first layer, but with practice, all layers can be viewed.

Bliss - according to Joseph Campbell, the essence of our life's journey/task is to 'follow our bliss'. How easy or hard is that ?! (Answer perhaps, as easy or hard as we make it !!)

Ecstasy - literally, to stand outside of oneself; Mircea Eliade described Shamanism as a 'technique of ecstasy', where the spirit ascends the World Tree and soars in at-one-ment with the Great Spirit. Sums it all up really !

Kundalini (ku??alin? ?????????) Sanskrit, literally "coiled". In Indian yoga, a "corporeal energy"[1] - an unconscious, instinctive or libidinal force or Shakti, envisioned either as a goddess or else as a sleeping serpent coiled at the base of the spine,[2][3][4] hence a number of English renderings of the term such as 'serpent power'. Kundalini is considered a part of the subtle body along with chakras (energy centres) and nadis (channels). The overall conception has many points in common with Chinese theories of acupuncture.

Yoga and Tantra propose that this energy may be "awoken" by such means as austerities, breath and other physical exercises, visualisation and chanting. It may then rise up a subtle channel at the spine (called Shushumna) to the head, bringing psychological illumination. Each chakra is said to contain special characteristics.[5] Yogis tend to attempt this alone, Tantrics in couples, both usually under the instruction of a guru.

When Kundalini Shakti is conceived as a goddess then, when it rises to the head it unites itself with the Supreme Being (Lord Shiva). The aspirant gets engrossed in deep meditation and infinite bliss.[6][7]

Loki or Loke is a god or giant in Norse mythology. The 13th century Icelandic Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, two of the very few sources of information regarding the figure, inconsistently place him among the Æsir, as his blood-brotherhood makes him a member of Odin's family. Although frequently mentioned in 13th century Icelandic sources, it is generally believed by scholars that it is unlikely that Loki was ever worshipped.[1]

In the Eddas, Loki is described as a son of Fárbauti and in the Prose Edda as also a son of Laufey.[2] Loki also had two brothers (Helbindi & Byleist) of whom nothing is known. Loki is introduced in the Prose Edda as the "contriver of all fraud". Tales regarding Loki in these sources often feature Loki mixing freely with the gods for a long time, even becoming Odin's blood brother before arranging the accidental murder of Baldr by Höðr in the Prose Edda book Gylfaginning. After Baldr's death, the Æsir restrain Loki with the entrails of his son Narfi. He is eventually freed and fights alongside the Jotun against the forces of the Æsir at Ragnarök.

Loki is not to be confused with the similarly named Útgarða-Loki, a king of the giants in Jötunheimr.

Phenomenology - "the study of structures of consciousness as experienced from the first-person point of view. The central structure of an experience is its intentionality, its being directed toward something, as it is an experience of or about some object. An experience is directed toward an object by virtue of its content or meaning (which represents the object) together with appropriate enabling conditions" (Stanford 2003).

- Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

UMS has a wonderful Phenomenology course too.

In Sanskrit, the words beginning with pronunciation ? begins with K rather than with Q. So if you are looking for meaning of any such word, please see words beginning with K. Hence,

K?la ??? Fate; death

Dear Spntl3 (can I call you something else - do you have a preference ?!x) - when you sau, we 'carry for eternity' - do you mean, we carry our individual soul for the whole (period?) of eternity, or do you mean, we carry it on behalf of eternity, I just wasn;t sure, as either seem potentially different, yet each interesting possibilities !!

-----I am answering in your own post, to not throw off the sequence. LOL I feel it's different for what ever each of us wants to believe, since we really do not know for sure. I feel my energy (soul) stays me, while i may change shapes, my eternal intelligence is always present. I don't know how else to explain the way I see it. I liked how you wrote it too. ~ Supernatural3 (Doc J or Jill works too)

Druid - a member of the priestly and learned class in the pre-Christian, ancient Celtic societies. These societies existed through much of Western Europe, Britain and Ireland, until they were supplanted by the Roman government and, later, the arrival of Christianity. Druids were part of the cultures of the tribal peoples who were called "Keltoi" (??????) or "Keltai" (??????) and "Galatai" (???????) by the Greeks and "Celtae" and "Galli" by the Romans. These words evolved into the modern English terms "Celtic", "Gaulish", and "Galatian". In the communities they served, druids combined the duties of priest, arbitrator, healer, scholar, and magistrate. Both men and women served as druids.

Fenrir (one for Jill perhaps?): or, as it used to say in the old Thor Marvel Comics, the Fenris Wolf (one for Marty maybe?): the Norse Gods wolf-son of Loki & a giantess .. chained to a rock till Ragnarok (Doomsday) when he will break free and swallow the sun and Odin.

Faery: for Iris, the other-world in our midst of fairies, goblins, dragons, elves and heroes (and Midsummer Nights Dream, olde WS)

Falun Gong (NE - a long shot, but as near as i could quickly get; Chinese development of Qi Gong; protestors here ourside the Chinese embassy in Great Portland Street); maybe otherwise, Five Rings, the Book of - a Warrior's Book

Full Fathom Five (from, i thiink, The Tempest): for MollyB, why, i do not know

Eeyore : for Instinctual, because learning to spell might mean we are not yet Six (a Winnie the Pooh joke)

Frodo: for Chothuni because we havent heard from you for so long you must be on a quest.

Forest: for Rose, because of your love of nature & the Earth

Freshair: for Stillness, as a welcome

Hemp - (from Old English hænep, see cannabis (etymology)) is the common name for plants of the entire family of Cannabis, although the term is often used to refer only to Cannabis strains cultivated for industrial (non-drug) use. Hemp is cultivated virtually everywhere in the world except for the United States, and its cultivation in western countries is growing steadily. For example, Canadian Hempseed exports surged 300% last year. China and other eastern countries never prohibited its cultivation and use it extensively.

Industrial hemp has thousands of uses, including paper, textiles, biodegradable plastics, health food, and fuel, but it has not been the great commercial success that the enthusiast hoped for. It is one of the fastest growing biomasses on the planet, and one of the earliest domesticated plants known. It also runs parallel with the "Green Future" objectives that are becoming increasingly popular. Hemp requires little to no pesticides, replenishes soil with nutrients and nitrogen, controls erosion of the topsoil, and produces a lot of oxygen, considering how fast it grows. Furthermore, Hemp could be used to replace many potentially harmful products, such as tree paper (the processing of which uses bleaches and other toxic chemicals, and contributes to deforestation), cosmetics (which often contain synthetic oils that can clog pores and provide little nutritional content for the skin), and plastics (which are petroleum based and cannot decompose).

If I read it right, we missed G but I will forge ahead.....from Jillism....which I kinda like...as there is so much Jillism that it becomes a philosophy.....litttle do you know Jilly, that what you write on the Internet has a life that will far exceed ours.
K--------Kells, the Book of.......a magnificent book of the gospel, Saxon-Celtic influence, which the Roman Catholic Church does not want anyone to read. Why? Because it reveals the "spiritual" nature of the faith, mystical and supernatural...and the Pope doesn't like that at all.....

Marty - I spolied the game by going a bit wild with F the other evening; assoications just spilled out and I went with them (in honour, largely, of MollyB's 'Things I love about you'; but by the time I got to Tracy, I had run out of F's and dropped in Gaia ...sorry to confuse

... and sorry too in my latenight ramblings I only dropped onto those who had posted lately or that came to mind, so, no offence, I realized after that I had missed out John W. Kelly, Ongoingbattle, Cause, Aquarius ... that's the problem when the flow comes, it does its own thing;

Dearest Lori, not only do you say ever such nice things about me, thank you muchly, you made amazing connections here ... just for info, the M was unintended, but your link is better than great too .. as i think i mentioned before somewhere, I started off just meaning to post Fenrir, then thought of Jill, who seems to like the Norse stuff, then went on to the Fenris Wolf of the Thor comics [though my favourite i was never sure if it was Black Bolt of the FF Inhumans, or maybe the Silver Surfer], then thought of Marty , then went into another realm of association and went with It ....

Openness or Open minded- Something everyone must have to delve into our realm at which we all live in.

----------
As far as letting it flow.... PJ, that is what it's all about. I love your comments and everyone's. I got this idea from a different forum as they did it with music, I thought i would do it with metaphysics. We are learning so much from each other right now. The best thing about this way is, we will learn it better, because it's FUN! My only way of learning. In my Jillism, I have found that what isn't fun, caused procrastination. . . . So pop in what ever kick starts the engine and let it run. Marty, Thanks for the compliments... i do live in my own little world. Don't worry, you all are there with me. Last night I dreamed of a place that had three moons, I was trying to shoot a picture, because they were all aligned nearly side by side which was rare, so i kept trying so hard to take a picture and i kept goofing it up. Almost like it didn't WANT me to take a picture. So i thought to myself.... perhaps we are not supposed to be able to prove such things to people who cannot handle it. It is only those who are advanced (like all of us who live metaphysically) that can handle such lucidity with in their minds, knowing perfectly well, we really will be there some day.

OK PJ.... whoops. I accidentally let it flow too. Now if I could only go write my report due for school TODAY (with 4 reputable resources). I have to critique them and keep it written in APA format. Ohhhhh my, i have put it off till last day too. Yet I am in here... with you fine folks. Hmmmmmm, Jillism has kicked in. Think i will go make breakfast now. HA HA HA

Quicken - A term that a vampire uses when he feels the quick heal from the energy surge either feeding or the psychic energy connection of a loved one.

At least that is how I understood it in "Interview with A Vampire" (Ann Rice 1973).

Dear Jill - I vaguely recall (without going to the dictionary), just if you don't think me rude or patronising (my sons always tell me I am), that the early English usage of 'Quick', is being drawn on by the Vampires; ie, 'Quick', used to basically mean, 'alive'; hence, the phrase, 'The quick and the dead', didn't mean those who can run faster; it meant the difference between being alive and dead; just an affirmatory amplification, if that's ok ?! ... also, the Quickening, in the Highlander series ... ok, I better check the etymology hadn't I? [pause whilst going into the library, back now]... which very interestingly tells us, Quick is from Old Norse (ah them again), kvikr, living, which became Old English, cwic (source: Chambers) ...

It's all good. I think we are still thinking alike.... Because energy of feeling alive would be healing. As well as a rush..... Isn't that what you are talking about? I recall when Armand asked Louis to stay, although Louis said it quickened him, he would have to regretfully decline. He wanted to keep the human feeling, instead of letting go of the last human feeling he had left. Which i take it as it must be love. This can get deep..... ha ha ha. Thanks for making me think. Then again, maybe it is giving up the pain, becoming numb. Losing a loved one is too hard, but he wanted that feeling of pain, so he didn't let Armand Quicken him. Hmmmmmm ????

I move along....

[not part of the game but a response to Jill's reflections] ... yes, quite so ... when we are in a powerful emoption that emotion feels like it fills us for that eternal moment; whether it is love, or perhaps too, rage, or hate, or whatever .. could it be that is why we have chosen life, to experience those emotions; and then the recognising them is the spiritual/eternal self, knowing the bigger picture of wholeness. Loss meanwhile, drops us quickly into that ocean of Nothingness, which, if we have not prepared ourselves for it, catches us unawares, and can drown us ... hence the Tibetan Buddhist imperative, to meditate on our own deaths .. and equally the fascination with vampires, who live for ever, yet at huge cost to life itself. Back to the game maybe ..

How Serendipitous then, dearest Sunbeam ... Serendipity means something like, that I have been thinking of you and that you haven't posted for a while, and whether i should mention that and you help me by posting this and not being sure what it means !! It means exactly that, being in and at the right place at and in the right time for something meaningful to happen; it's a little bit like synchronicity, but in my book, slightly different too. Really good to hear from you

Valley of Tears

A stretch of valley in the northern Golan Heights where an Israeli force of 100 tanks was decimated by the invading Syrian army in 1973. Only seven tanks survived, but they continued to fight. Thanks to similar courage in the southern Golan, the Syrians were routed within four days and nearly 600 Syrian tanks were left in ruins in the Valley of Tears.

P.S. In that area of the world, Romanians speak a Romance language, much the same as Spanish, French and Italian...and Latin, it's derivative. They do not understand the Cyrillic languages, never spoke it, and never will. No amount of Russian soldiers  could ever make them abandon the heritage of the Holy Roman Empire.

Xiao, or maybe Xaio (I may have that spelt wrong, no offence if anyone corrects me!?) - a Chinese version of the Japanese Shakuhachi, a bamboo flute often used to help focus and still the mind in meditation. The Xaio is notched, the Shakuhachi has a carved sharp edge for blowing across. Hauntingly lovely sound.

(and ps Rose, your reference to Middle East geography is interesting; you and others may know, but in case not, that the Plain of Armageddon referred to in the Bible as being the site of the final Earth conflict is name derived from the plain of Ha Megiddo in Northern Israel)

It is easier to play - slightly - but the Shakuhachi has a much more resonant sound - mind you I only have a cheapo Xaio and a very expensive Shax (hand made, signed by its creator, a special being it is too !!) ... the UMS have my playing on a tape somewhere; if I could techonlogise I would send something over to you; let me reflect (I am not the world's greatest exponent, to put it mildly) ...

...you may know, but if not the Shak .. was adopted by the Samurai when their swods were banned, carried in their sleeves for self-defence; given what is happening to spiritual workers in the UK, maybe we should all carry one ...

haha, My shak is very heavy, its nothing special like what you or my tribunal of sensei had. My main Sensei told me his shakuhachi was over 200 years old and priceless. Mine is a common student shakuhachi. The hardest part about playing Shakuhachi for me is sitting seshin style..Im very tall, 2 meters, and sitting on my legs is murder. After about 3 min I can no longer feel them anyways, but after the session I cant stand up, I dont let them know any of this, but I think they know and probably laugh about it afterwards.

What a great idea Paul to get this running again.

Courtesy of the Dictionary of Metaphysical Healthcare, we have-

curanderismo (curanderismo healing system): Mexican-American "healing" tradition. It encompasses acupuncture and homeopathy. Its theory posits natural and supernatural sources of illness; alleged supernatural sources include evil spirits and brujos (practitioners of antisocial magic). The word curanderismo derives from the Spanish verb curar, which means "to treat," "to cure," or "to heal."

Ha! Good one! Forgetting ..... love that!

on we go to G-

Gnosis: The "philosophy of the universe," as old as the world, according to the Gnostic Association of Anthropology and Scientific Studies (AGEACAC), a bilingual (Spanish/English) organization whose National Center is in Elmhurst, New York. AGEACAC holds that humans cannot develop their faculties if they lose "sexual energy" in any way (e.g., masturbation), that religious principles are eternal and universal truths, that there are no false religions, and that "Cosmic Religion" vibrates in every atom. Gnosis supposedly permits the "harmonious" development of "infinite human possibilities."

[Dear Lori, just off thread for a moment, in Joseph Campbell's The Mythic Image, he has a small section on a shamanic practice in a South American tribe, where the young identified as being shaman, go through some enforced repeated masturbation process, along with other austerities, to debilitate them sufficiently as to become 'jaguars' fit to mate with the Divine spirit - complex stuff, but an interesting divergence from the tradition you cite ].

I ... could be just that I, as in I AM That, a sacred identifier, and in Gurdjieff's, 'Life is only real then when, I am'

"to which I respond hmmmmmm" was secretly and humorously meant to be the representation for "H"...meaning to ponder, question. I live in a happy place in my head! However, Jiller's Harmony is perfect. In fact I sense harmony emanating from Jill because of her inner strength despite her obstacles. You rock, lady! anyway...(also please note that the endearing nicknames I often refer to Jill as are the same as I refer to my daughter, Jill)

Based on the definition I provided of Gnosis and your further explanation Paul, I come to the conclusion without further exploration that being fit to mate with the Divine Spirit does indeed require the recognition of what masturbation can symbolize- primal power and strength, and a "letting go"..hence as well the experience one must have with the feeling of orgasm, if indeed that is the end result of said masturbation!

Ok...on to J! Next?

(Lori - ignoring the temptation to continue the 'm' dialogue with a couple of playfully rude 'j's' though the synchronicity is funny !!):

Back to thread:

J: (not sure if spelt correctly -) Jallaludin, the middle name of Rumi, great Sufi mystical poet .... and to keep the balls in the air ...
Jonah .. very short prophetic book of Old Testament about being swallowed by a whale, hence, the dark night Journey, and the sense of someone being a 'Jonah' or - a Jinx - a bringer of bad luck ... : Though I feel seriously, that for the true metaphysican, there is nothing such as good, or bad luck; Lady Luck (so-called), brings us what we need to be transformed to the true Self ! ... inded in the biblical story, Jonah is reproved by God for being too negative !

.. aah dear MollyB (& January is her/his month ! ...) ... thank you for giving me K, I had wanted K, but now the moment is upon me, I, forshame, have no idea what was the profundity I had erstwhile, long-times past associated with K

(and not wishing to repeat past, lovely K's of spirit that might or might not have been used , yet can I even say them without risking censure, internally or externally)

.... there are some out there, but to save me raising myself from my sleeping day-bed, I may go - please - can you forgive me, all thou kindredst spirits out there (making up words now just for the beauty of word play - as in Jabberwocky [Ha, a retrospective J !!) and the lovely sing-song lilt of word-music that needs no music with it ... so may I be pleased to go with

K, as in Agent K, of Men in Black, senior agent, who makes it all happen ... the last defenders against the unknown of the Universe (until Dr Who appears)

Your very respectful Servant

ye ancient of days, blackwite barrow Knight from the seven realms of darkness, Eastern shores and mountains, the once and future pooh bee, to be, or Not

I shall take that in the best possible way, Cara ... not an Ouch ... since we seem to be on good terms .. but sorry if I sounded like I was trying to be too clever ... so then how's about

Quest -

upon which, making a presumption, i guess, we are all engaged ... the Quest is the tradiitonal form of putting the spiritual story into both an everyday yet also a mythic context ... the Quest for the Grail, the Quest for our inner unity, which paradoxically, we already have, the quest for the Philosopher's Stone, aka our Soul, the secret treasure in the cave guarded by the dragon that must be loved not slain, becauase it represents the wisdom of our unconscious .. (oops, am I doing it again?!) xx

ps, best blessings with the puer eternus - the innocent child, who also represents our inner child, yearning to grow into the Light ..

There is a great poem by A E Housman that goes,


WITH rue my heart is laden
For golden friends I had,
For many a rose-lipt maiden
And many a lightfoot lad.

By brooks too broad for leaping
The lightfoot boys are laid;
The rose-lipt girls are sleeping
In fields where roses fade.

Thanks for reassurances ...

... our children are always our children .. (mine are grown up now also)

Marvellous sentences on parenting and children in Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet - something about them being bows from our arrows ...yet then having to fly free, or some such, cannot recall exactly ..

Hmmm .. an upside down death poem then (reminiscing back to NE and his Death Poems) ... and I wonder if he influenced Lewis Carrol's 'Father William' - "you are old Father William the young man said ...'is that why you repeatedly stand on your head' "
... that's not qute right from memory .. now from wikisource ... & Alice in Wonderland ..

"You are old, Father William," the young man said,
"And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head -
Do you think, at your age, it is right?"


"In my youth," Father William replied to his son,
"I feared it might injure the brain;
But now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again."


"You are old," said the youth, "As I mentioned before,
And have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door -
Pray, what is the reason of that?"


"In my youth," said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
"I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment - one shilling the box -
Allow me to sell you a couple?"


"You are old," said the youth, "And your jaws are too weak
For anything tougher than suet;
Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak
Pray, how did you manage to do it?"


"In my youth," said his father, "I took to the law,
And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength which it gave to my jaw,
Has lasted the rest of my life."


"You are old," said the youth, "one would hardly suppose
That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose -
What has made you so awfully clever?"


"I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
Said his father; "don't give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs!"

.. i must pray, beg forebearance with introducing Alice, Father William and elsewhere Jabberowcky ... my assoicaitons tend to run free and wild when the Barakka hits me on the site, and takes me anywhere the Divine It, or Thou wills .... isn;t that part of the metaphysical fun ?

Also, Lewis Carroll's real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (I think) and he was a mathematician, and we have also writen elsewhere as to how maths reflects the Divine ... & isn;t Alice a symbolically metaphysical text?

... we have written elsehwre on how poetry means, making, creation, the word, and in employing the word creatively we are reflecting God's Work ... well that's my excuse anyway and I am sticking to it ..

But I do admit, I am very hard work (on myself more than most), and many say, far too intense ...

Is that clearer ? Hope so; let me know if not ....

I pressed onc,e then it took a long time, then it went off and it said, page expired, so I pressed again. Then it came back, so I pressed agaain. So in answer to your question, yes ... but I see that inadvertently last night I did not log off propoerly so may have been logged in all night, when I ws asleep (Ha ha!) ... so maybe the system gets tired if it is left on too long ...

more than happy to oblige Cara dear -

W = William Shakespeare, poet, playwright, dramatist, sometime property owner in Stratford on Avonm, married to Anne hathaway, whose poetical works, in my humble opinion, spanned the range and gamut of humanity, plumbing depths and heights of metaphysical awarenesses in most subtle of ways .. especially his Hamlet ... and those sonnets, dedicated to the Dark Lady ...

Namaste

impossible to know how he did it really

(if W for a first name doesn;t count let me know and I'll do another !)

"Y"  Yoruba religion

Yoruba believe in a supreme being, in primordial divinities, and spirits that have been deified. God is known as Olodumare (the one who has the fullness of everything) and Olorun (the owner of heaven, the Lord whose abode is in the heaven above). Other names are also used that reflect the Yoruba belief that God has all the possible attributes of a person.
As the Supreme Being created heaven and earth, he also brought into existence hundreds of divinities, and the spirits (Orisa, or Imole, and Ebora). Other historical figures, such as kings, culture heroes, founders of cities, etc. were deified, and are invoked along with personifications of natural forces such as earth, wind, trees, river, lagoon, sea, rock, hills and mountains. As in other African societies, Yoruba also believe in the active existence of the deceased ancestors.

"Z"   Zeitoun...Egypt.

In 1968 thousands of Copts witnessed a vision of the "Virgin Mary" at Zeitoun.

F..ollowing on from"E" I think,

Fox sisters (Kate, Leah, and Marggie) played important role in founding of the Spiritualist Church.

"G"...Golem...Jewish legend that certain Rabbi's can create a human slave from clay.Are never allowed to leave the house and are kept in by having word "emeth" (truth) written on their forehead.Golems do not stop growing and when they get too big the letter "E" is removed leaving "meth" (he is dead) and the Golem returns to clay.One supposedly grew so big that when he crumbled he crushed the Rabbi.

Hello Chothuni - phew thanks ... was feeling lonely out here in the Cosmic Forest today ...

George Fox also, was, wasn't he, the founder of the Quakers ? any relation I wonder ? There was a good X-File about a Golem ... and Gollum was in Lord of the Rings ...wonder if Tolkien knew about the Jewish legends ?!

Interesting ...

Hi P.J., Sorry I did not see you through the trees, I did try to reply a few minutes ago but when I hit the reply button I was returned to the main page and was showing as being logged in as a guest! Strange things happen in these enchanted woods.

Yes, George Fox did found the Quakers (only he knew they were missing obviously) and he travelled in North America for a while around 1671, I believe. His wife's name was Margaret as was one of the Fox sisters so it's quite possible there is some relationship, but as far as I know his sons lived in Nottingham and Leicester and were tradesmen so I don't really know. Now I sound like Mavis.

But wasn't Tolkien Jewish himself? (sorry S.F.)

Haven't seen the X-Files for years but I see a new movie is about to be launched, should be good, I used to like that programme.

Enchanted woods indeed ... they spiral directly down and up into the Cosmic Soul !!

Didn't know J R R Tolkien was Jewish ...learn something new every day

As for the band of Foxes, I was born near Leicester, so there's a thing & sometimes think I knew Robin Hood in a past life (he of Sherwood Forest, nr Nottingham)...

Haven't seen the X-File film yet, have gone off cinema, cannot wend my way out of these deep woods ...

Shame you cannot get Dr Who over there, it really is very good metaphysical TV .. now have quite lost the next word or letter ? ...

It's all those old threads again;

Quite lost the thread in these very deep word woods or wood words ... have you any idea what letter we are on ? We might get into hot water for losing the plot ..! It could be G, but then after G, you said Hi, so that could be an H, in which case it could be I, but frankly

I dunno; but it's been great fun !!

I think we need an index to all these threads, or an annotation, or some such, 'cos its getting quite hard to remember what has been posted and what not, the themes have become so interesting and complex, that it's a worry that some good stuff gets missed, or overlooked, or might even be repeated without knowing it ... there are so many K's coming to mind, but I don;t want to insult anyone by repeating .. oh hum maybe I'll just have to look back; unless anyone knows how we might create a search facility if there isn;t one ..

I so agree Marty; the books are even more graphically culinary [Len Deighton, the author, had been an air steward, amongst other jobs)

- my dad, who had been in the merchant navy, obtained a 'percolator' once and we felt very cosmopolitan (1960s) ... also, in Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, Steve Martin makes Alan Ladd the meanest cup of Java ... did you see that scene .. egg shells & all (my dad used to put egg shells in too!!) ...

... as i've said elsewhere, now i drink mostly Macchu Picchu Cafe direct Fair trade organic, or if it is tea, black tea, (no milk), or if at home, Chinese white tea (ie, not with milk, but a peony leaf, or some such, from the high misty mountain tops) !!

Doh ! There's me being clever (ha, or rather trying!) and I completely missed Kiddo's word ... (what is Zell please?) ... shall we end this game here or carry on ? We may repeat ... good game for learning new things though ...wracking my brain for a new A ... maybe

Akhnaton - pharaoh, that some suggest may have been the actual Moses of the OT (but I am open to correction on that one as I am not primarily an Egyptian scholar)

(I delve into the tasks given to me by Spirit - too bad I'm also a bit of a procrastinator so I have several tasks stacking up in different stages of completion. Darn monkey-mind of mine). LOL

I found it!!!

Somehow I wound up at the very 1st post and didn't know it was supposed to go in ABC order.

Here is how it works.... We go through the alphabet, and each add just ONE (Non-repeating) metaphysical word and its definition.
Once we reach Z, we can start over again with A, but.... no repeats. It keeps going, until we run out of words.

I will start with Letter A


Aura - The energy surrounding a person or the soul's 'life force'. It's vibration shows up in colors around a person, which reveals it's condition. It is omni present and has several layers. The normal layer to view is the physical first layer, but with practice, all layers can be viewed.



So I will begin again using 'B'.

Bloodstone - Bloodstone is a variety of opaque chalcedony, a type of quartz. The circularuty system is most affected by this stone. It helps purify toxic flood and detoxify the kidneys, liver and spleen. It is also said to increase courage and help in avoiding dangerous situations by soothing the mind.
