Hey Lori,
OMG, thank you for such compliments, like Marty, sometimes ya just have to bring a tissue to clear the tears of happiness.

I do find just a great connection to all of you. I also LOVE seeing faces, it helps me remember who is who. I get many people so confused on who said what. So actually seeing beautiful faces, helps me FEEL closer.
I will give it a shot, but i fear leaving someone out by accident. Just remember. threads may be edited later, just in case my memory fails at this moment.

Here is why i love you all so much:

Aquarius - You have been here a very long time. I have talked with you many times on the phone and you are a beautiful and giving soul who just always gives. Your astrology is very wise and touches us all in positive ways. Talking to you personally has really made my day. Your accent is darling. It's always a blessing to read what you have to say.

Marty- You bring out my ornery side. Most the time i don't know whether to hug ya, or wrestle.... but it's always fun. Your wisdom and history knowledge is very impressive. Also, you work for a secular college, and your not cocky, nor do you treat anyone like they are below you. You are a fantastic teacher, even when you are not trying to teach, you have a natural gift for doing just that.
I still have much to learn from you. So.... you are stuck with us. Neener neener. :P

Tracy- I have never had the glory of actually talking on the phone with you, but we have connected very strongly through this forum and through email. You taught be how to be more patient, by showing me how it's done. I am the hot headed Leo type and you are the calm lamb, that lets the light in enough light the path better. I keep seeing your inner light shining brighter and brighter each month. Keep at it, you are in your right path. I feel the smoothness of that path you have created for yourself. SHINE ON! Should anything drag you down, I will jump out, tickle you and distract that shadow long enough to let you re-light that inner glow.

Lori - You came in and just had a warm feeling right from the start. You have humor and have no problem jumping in to help anyone feel more comfy. I would call you the forum COMFORT. I bet a crying baby would calm in your arms. You have a very nurturing personality. That is what i detect from you instantly.

Molly - You pointed out my flaws to me, but in a way that was acceptable. A humbling experience that was needed. Then you showed the understanding side, which opened up an entire new beginning, not just for our friendship, but for several others too. I see you as being the group balancer. You see both sides of the coin, even when one side is down, and speak up if it's not clear. You are the go getter type and I can see you being a leader or boss that people actually like.

Iris - I will admit, I was so furious with you in the beginning, but it made me re-evaluate myself, and give second chances to both others and myself. It's hard to try to understand a world that is different when you just got there. It's also not just you that takes things personally. We all do it, but are trying so hard not to. I would make you the group challenger, and with out challenges.... we never move forward. Thank you!

Rose - While i haven't had many one to one conversations with you, the information you give is always intelligently written. I feel there is class with your writing. Very elegant. That is what i feel when i read into who you are only by your words. I hope to learn more about you.

Nothingandeverything - You have a way with balance. Seeing through everything, as nothing being better or worse than anything at all. Your words strike such deep thoughts and are always unbiased towards absolutely everything. I wish people like you were in high places because you would be fair. What a great quality in my own opinion.

PJ - You bring out the humor and poetic side. You soften up the rough edges and then bring out your side of things. While i am not a poetic type at all, I have enjoyed and even shared some of your poetry. So somehow you have reached my soul, because the non-poetic Jill, actually gave your poem to another, to help them, as you did me. You touch people and have an friendly energy with in your posts. I might even add that your picture suites your friendly writing. I am thankful to get to actually see who my friends are.

Soulfire- Another intelligent soul. Perky, friendly and always using positive punctuations that help us know you mean so well. Your positive intent always show in your writing. When finally seeing your picture, it brought out even more of a spark. What a beautiful smile.

If there is someone I missed, i am so sorry, it is nearly 2am and I am wired, but tired. I tried to touch base on how people made me feel in their writings, and expressed just that.

This thread was a very lovely idea.

Supernatural! Thank you so much for the encouraging words. And observations that made me smile and shine. Now I want to spread this same happiness to everyone around me.

You're the best! I make reference of you and what you write quite often to my family and friends. I refer to you as "the Doc".

Always insightful and more, I really appreciate how you shared that very personal experience of yours...you probably know which one I'm referring too. But I experience you as someone who is very open and not at all afraid of vulnerability which makes you a very strong person.

Love and blessings to you..have a great Holiday weekend.

Well, here I am back, not seeking to pour cold water, but just with a wondering, that, although this group on-line encounter group type thing is nice when it is nice, and so on and I do not want to party poop (ha ha) ... but there is an elecronic concern I have which is that if we were all in a room together, there would be room for mutual bio-feedback ... I just have this slight tinge of concern that we cannot have that kind of unspoken, reflective feedback, sitting together in a room, so, words/feelings/expressions come and go out, each and whichever way, without prior or a-priori, or post facto checking out. So though I feel the thread and comments are wonderfully intentioned, I have come to the postion of to registering a perplexed & not quite understood caution.



Love
Paul

photos - just to say, am not sure about photos - the medieaval practice was that all Art was truly anonymous as recognition that all true Art came from the divinity; so photos, can lead away from the anonymity of message; mine slipped in, as a mix up when I was trying to send NE a photo of my little holy pond where I swim; so I transposed a gorse bush with my pond, then my face (from my work web-site) slipped onto the site; yet too, we are human, and we communicate humanly ... still not sure about the photograph thing. But then again, its a good indentifer, I suppose - to prevent fraud...

Concerns are valid and understood, PJ. These computer screens can act as shields and comfort zones. A much different energy comes into play when our personalities are all physically together. I personally have encountered that in the 1990's when the personal computer became a must have item. Grant you, I met wonderful people from all over the world, people that I befriended in chat rooms that either I went to visit ( all over the states and to the UK- took a ferry from the White Cliffs of Dover to Calais, then drove to Paris ), or came to visit me (In Connecticut at the time ), from as far away as Perth, Australia. It is wonderful, but different. I however do not think that feelings expressed in this safety zone are contrived, but we are safe to express our spiritual "Light" sides, which are truly much more open and loving than would be outwardly shown in person for people you have never really met, but that you "know". You know?
Please indulge me for a moment, but perhaps you are concerned about what feelings you have shared with others online and how they might manifest in "person "? Sometimes it may be safer to maintain the safe screen protected relationships you have developed with people, than to potentially change perceptions and levels of admiration. Thoughts?

Peace and all that sort of really good stuff-!

Lori

Maybe Lori; not so concerned about what i personally myself have said, or not; just aware how PCs and personal interaction offer different ?modalities/opportunities/concerns/vulnerabilities ,etc.

But if music be the food of love, play on.

Yet again from a consciousness perspective, I also, differently wonder, what goes on with the server here -and whether it is somehow affected positively or negatively by our inputs, or, differently again, whether it is some kind of negative energy seeking to interrupt the flow - hence my occaisonal little experiments trying to pin down where & when the glitches of delays/repetion occur?

Well, if and when any of you meet me, we will probably end up in some social enviroment, be it over a cup of coffee(or expresso) in a local coffee shop (One of my passions is fine coffee and the entire culture, im still learning though) or over a drink at the bar (I also enjoy fine scotch(which Japanese have done a brilliant job of learning ie.Yoichi 20-year) and its culture). I love the art of conversation and love to create an entire sensory experience. Youll have to taste from the cup of my personality in person to truly enjoy or dislike the flavor. As i will be "cupping" your person in return. But this forum does provide a great place to "break the crust" and explore each others aromas, and how very appealing they are!

Oh Paul, I see and feel what you say. Perhaps I was projecting my personal experiences unconsciously into your thoughts, not intended and so sorry if that's what happened....
Maybe I should just rewind the last 24 hours and start over !!!

Help.
Keeping in the meaning of this post, what I love about you Paul is your gentleness and sweetness and kindness and candor and intelligence and the total presence of your Spirit self and an absence of ego thoughts.

Thank you and All for being here.

I have tried to send this post or a vairant of it around 8 times now and it just disappears into nowehere - I am trying to say, dear Lori, that is so phenomenally kind and lovely of you to see and say that, thank you ...

.... and NE, expresso, white tea (as in, Yellow Mountain, or Peony White tea), or green sencha, or a good malt, are equally my cup of tea, so i shall look forward to that cupping - which, as with the sacred visitation to heal the plastic lake of pollution in the middle of the Pacific, we are each doing kind of astrally anyway, by virtue of these amazing posts , communications & responses ...

Namaste All

What I love about you..is that you cannot see me when I am so intensely involved in the stories and emotions of my own mind that your presence is barely acknowledged. I am a very introverted person.

I feel myself to be on a very important personal journey of transformation, but all my importance flies away in the face of death, silence, stillness, the Unknown, beauty, and the suffering of others.

What I love about you is that you cannot see my physical flaws and my social ineptitude. I don't drink coffee or alcohol (although I did have several servings of saki a few weeks ago that surprised me by not making me sick!) It usually takes a long time for me to feel safe enough to chit chat. I have struggled with intense low self-esteem. The stories I have to tell are very personal, about depression, ignorance, and self-abuse and coming out of decades of suffering.

What I love about you is that you can read about my  successes, the growing peace, the steady removal of violence from my thinking and feeling, the bliss I have at our intrinsic oneness, the blossoming of personal power and compassion. I love that I can share a little bit about my highest lessons and most beautiful thoughts.

What I love about you is that you teach me about the many experiences of being human, you jolt me and stun me with your compassion and your hurt feelings, and you help me to find the best in me.

Tracy, you are the meaning of beauty on the inside and outside. I wonder why us human types, particularly women (maybe because we are more emotional and verbal about such things and because we are born with those darn hormone producing reproductive organs-definitely worthy of a new thread) simply cannot be completely happy and present and content with ourselves. Some mechanism built into our psyches to propel us further on our journey, I suppose...but it sure can get rather ugly inside our own heads! I wish you sooo very much love and peace on your journey. You are a shining Star. You are loved. You are thought of fondly, looked up to and admired.
I wish we could travel freely to that space where we could see ourselves the way others do. You would smile about yourself, trust me

Fondly,

Lori

Tracy, i have always had a gift of jib jab. Or chit chat..... People open up to me (in person). I don't know why, but if i see someone closed up, I usually will walk right up to them and say hello first. By the end of the talk, we normally give hugs, before parting again. Specially if i knew their personality on line first. I have a lot of experience of this because of my own organization being by internet. I have many best friends that i only have met in person about 5 times, or less. YET, everytime i see them, we have such a great time, even if it's doing nothing but talking. We communicate like crazy on-line, and via phone.

In the hypnosis field, i have very depressed people with no confidence come to see me. By the time they are done, they are smiling, loving themselves more and opened up and feeling better. Even before I did hypnosis, I did permanent cosmetics. My clients would come in a little scared and I would make them laugh by telling jokes, or just having a heart to heart conversation. Next thing you know, they are giving me a hug before they leave. It is very rewarding. That was a real kicker, because i put them in pain for that one.

Yet the way inside of me is NEVER that confident. It's like something else takes over. I guess i never let my insecurities show on the outside, but they are there. I used to be worse, i was a sport nut and was very competitive. I was good too.... i hit three home runs in one game. My bowling average was a 191. My volleyball serve would be feared. Then I started to think, gee.... i am not letting anyone else's light shine. So I started to enjoy playing, instead of being so stressed to be the best. Now i do things for just fun. I don't even care if I win or not, because it is all about friends and teamwork and helping others. Now i think my light is brighter and it's less effort. You will find the true path, just happens naturally. It will not be hard work, but will flow like mild smooth stream.

Tracy, we all have our own paths. Your's is beautiful, with flowers, nature, and sunshine. I see it all around you. That is exactly what i see when i think of you.

I tell you, one day we will meet. I cannot wait, because i will walk over to you and give you the biggest hug and THANK YOU! Then i will bust out a joke, that will have you rolling on the floor.... while we pee our pants. LOL Then we will laugh about that for a while.

I DO have flowers all over, on my porch, walkway, and two garden areas. And I have great yellow bursting flowers surrounded by brilliant orange blossoms in a vase on my desk which sits in front of a picture window looking out on a few Redwood trees, plum trees, apple trees, and other unidentified trees and the roofs of about five houses. The flowers keep telling me that they are divine blessings of love and joy for all beings, and I am feeling that energy so finely! Even the cut ones are pouring out their beauty and gladness and blooming more and more every hour. There is a rhododendron flower in my bathroom. And, this morning I made my smoothie with a bowl of water I had set in the sun with a large rose in it, and a handful of soaked raisins.

You will definitely make me pee in my pants Jill! I am already tickled!

Thank you Lori and Jill for your kindness and humor. I have changed a lot over the past few years, even more so having worked with the UMS courses and Christine Breese's meditations. I am also enjoying the work of Eckhart Tolle, Marshall Rosenberg, and Byron Katy lately. Check some of their work out on YouTube. Often I surprise myself now at how well I do interact with others. A lot of fear is gone, and most my 'low self-esteem stories' have lost their truth. I certainly have more confidence that I can just be me, whatever that is in the moment. I do attract wonderful people into my life who really do like me.

I'm bragging, but this is just the other side of the story, which also loses itself in the enormity of eternity.

Rose, what I love about you is that your spirituality is brought down to earth to the community level. You have a fine sense of the world as one human family and you are looking to stimulate creative and enriching solutions to long standing problems. I'd vote for you to be President in a second. You are a clear and passionate voice, an inspirer.

This IS what I love about you.
And it is the result of your introversion.
"What I love about you is that you cannot see my physical flaws and my social ineptitude."
Your right, but your physical flaws are beautiful and "small talk" is cheap, you provide the type of stimulating conversation that moves and inspires. You embody the spirit of Chanoyu.
To get to know such an amazing being such as yourself requires patience, listening, and positive energy, and once one gets the privilage to become close to you, they have found a brilliant force to be allied with forever.
"What I love about you is that you can read about my successes, the growing peace, the steady removal of violence from my thinking and feeling, the bliss I have at our intrinsic oneness, the blossoming of personal power and compassion. I love that I can share a little bit about my highest lessons and most beautiful thoughts."
Success, peace, intristic oneness, and compassion mean nothing to me.
What I love about you is that you are the embodiment of those elements naturaly and they radiate from your every pore.
"The stories I have to tell are very personal, about depression, ignorance, and self-abuse and coming out of decades of suffering"
You have a beautfully healthy self esteem, I can see it truly. Only one comfortable with themselves and open to the world can discuss such subjects, to reveal your scars to us reveals your bravery and deep wisdom.
"What I love about you is that you teach me about the many experiences of being human, you jolt me and stun me with your compassion and your hurt feelings, and you help me to find the best in me"
What I love about you, is that you do this for me.

What I Love about Thee is

Thy Divinity:

your love and hate, and the reconciliation in between

What I love about You is physicality, spirituality, nonsence and Reality

What I love about You is truth, falsehood, the imagined and the phantasy

What I love about You is illusion, darkness, pain and not knowing

What I love about You is finding, discovery and everything here

What I love about You is everything there, that I do not know

The sound and the silence

The light and the dark

The knowing and not knowing

The shadow and the spark

What I love about You

I must allow to ignite, within me.

It seems to be a rather slow day on the boards, a lull so to speak...every busy with their responsibilities, in their own lives. Going through old threads and this one is the one I was looking for, and I wanted to resurrect it..

May this Love Child thread of Molly's be a demonstrative example of her and our ability to express high vibrational energy!

What I love about you all is that I am me and I am accepted as such..I am given food for thought, tools to grow, and courage to speak, in my most authentic voice.

Smooooochies, Love and Gratitude to my partners here!
