  2. Truths. Black lives matter Transwomen are women Trans men are men White supremacy is bad. Capitalism exploits. Politicians lie. Fox news isn't. Work locally to change the world. Just a few off the top of my head.

  3. PSA for anyone who needs it -- reread the energy report if you feel like crap!! April has been weird. I've been going from feeling optimistic to feeling lost and drifting, then back again. I decided to look up the April dates of note yesterday and found it really helpful to reread the negative pole of Perseverance and realize that's how I felt -- pointlessness and lack of direction. Even though I had a direction in mind (specifically regarding my next writing project), all my old doubts and insecurities have been resurfacing. Reading this, I realized that it is my job to choose and

  4. As far as politics goes, as soon as I could rationalize, I've considered myself an Anarchist. Since middle school probably. Though I didn't really understand what it meant back then. I do now, and for the longest time I considered it just an ideal. Like yeah, in Utopia anarchy will just come natural... but only in Utopia. I'm not so sure about all that now. Just so I'm clear Anarchy literally means "no ruler." That's it. But there is more to it obviously. An Anarchist is as far left as you can get, but doesn't recognize leadership or hierarchy unless it proves itself absolutely necessary an

  5. An update on what I wrote on Friday -- I'm not sure what happened, but since later that day, I've been feeling fantastic and have a renewed sense of purpose and inspiration. Once I committed to my writing project (and to not putting pressure on my writing to make me a living), I started seeing the book I'm going to write -- about overcoming blocks to creativity -- and my brain has been running overtime fitting all the pieces together from all of my experiences and studies. I'm so excited to work on this for the rest of the year (approximately), and I feel like I'm finally doing what I was made

  6. Thank you Troy, I can't help but add a note of humourous observation for the predicted turbulence from May 23 to 25th ... I know it will be true for me. I am scheduled for a colonoscopy (TMI -sorry!) on the 25th so prep starts the 23rd. I can definitely see this time as being distinctly uncomfortable, lol! Regardless, I appreciate these forecasts and always find them very useful in helping me navigate and understand what is happening around and to me. It is just so intriguing that the energy aligns with my physical experience :-D!

  8. Got my first dose of Pfizer at a mass vaccination site very efficiently run by the Illinois National Guard on Friday and want to thank @Becca the Student and @Jeroen for suggesting having a heart to heart with my body beforehand. Rather than the run down feeling I was expecting, I actually got a boost in energy and ended up decluttering the house and garage until well after midnight. I had muscle pain at the injection site very similar to DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness after working out), but it was gone within 24 hours, and the lifting and moving things even helped relieve it.

  9. We have a lot more work to do and we can do this... together. Yesterday was a bittersweet day of celebration and justice in America. It was sweet to have a HUGE win and to finally have a police officer held accountable for murdering a Black civilian, but it was also bitter in that it took overwhelming testimony, video footage from multiple angles, professional perspectives, and the unnecessary murder of a Black man to get this historic moment of justice... and despite being able to see exactly what he did from multiple angles as he murdered George Floyd, we were still on the edge o

  10. I felt such a heaviness today, I broke out into tears with no reason at all, and nothing that I came up with eased my inner pain and weight. I found myself sitting on the stair steps, crying about this world, and the cruelty happening, and no justice in place, just exploitation to a degree unfathomable. Birds showed up, first a big old crow flying low over me, to see just one crow doing that, I live long enough in the wild, that never happened before to me so close, the crow made a point to slowly circling upwards. Three checkers hoped around very close for the whole ev

  12. I just got my first shot! I was scheduled for next Thursday, but we were walking around Green Lake near our house when we came across the fire department giving out their extra Moderna doses. My next shot is scheduled in a month. I know most of us in the US are getting our shots now, but I’m still so excited that it’s my turn!!

  13. That is interesting that you mentioned doing that. I did something similar before both of my shots. I visualized and spoke to the cells in my body letting them know about the upcoming vaccine and its intent.

  14. Three weeks from my second shot of Pfizer. Just a sore arm and temporary low level headache. Same with my wife. Glad to hear most of us are doing well. I wish my neighbors would get vaccinated. Trump supporters. I vacillate between patience and kindness and wanting to just smack them upside the head. I can hear Roy Masters "overlook, and be outspoken, with firmness, kindness and patience"

  15. Little update: I ended up getting the Pfizer shot last evening. Everything at the facility ran super smooth. It was their first day so it was surprising. Everyone seemed giddy...or maybe it was just me and the hubby. No side effects to be seen so far except a very sore arm. We have our next shots scheduled for the end of the month. Very relieved to have had it. Feels surreal.

  16. Giving and receiving are the physical manifestation of our breath patterns. Only when you have enough for yourself can you truly give without expecting anything in return. Sometimes the most appropriate form of giving is silence. You have to be honest with yourself. If you feel that you are not being nourished enough, then you have to learn to give more to yourself. Giving does not only travel from the centre to the periphery but also from the periphery towards your centre. Rest is an example of you giving to yourself.

  17. In an Instagram post Thursday (April 22, 2021), Alexei Navalny called people who turned out to protest in his support “the salvation of Russia." The 44-year-old who is President Vladimir Putin's most well-known critic said he hadn't known “what was really happening” outside the prison because he only has access to one TV channel, but his lawyer visited him Thursday and brought him up to speed. “And, I will sincerely say, two feelings are raging inside me: pride and hope. ... People are marching in the street. It means they know and understand everything," said Navalny.

  18. I do agree there will always be leaders and followers but I don't agree that then translates into leaders having power. If we agree as humans that we need people to lead or settle disputes, etc., fine but we don't need to make that person or persons special because they have that role. When everyone participates and is able to lend their own natural skills and talents, then being a leader is a role just like being a care giver or lifeguard or chef. There is no need to elevate any person. It's just like with our essence roles, no one is better than another but they all work together

  19. I've been feeling like Charlie Brown lately, and it came to a head yesterday, with so much (still) going on in the world that feels unloving, unmoving, ....unrelieved. How many more mass shootings in the U.S. can we withstand? How much more can humanity take? Will we get through this? Will we be able to stop voter suppression in the U.S.? Will we put an end to White Supremacy, the Patriarchy, once and for all, as it is so writ large? How will we get through this? When this happens over time I try to remind myself what future lives of mine are teaching me, specifically my next life in Japan. 和平

  20. My ex came down today, and we went to Costco - we're both fully vaccinated, but we still wore masks, of course. After we came home and put his frozen stuff in my freezer, we went out to eat. Restaurants are open here at 50% capacity, but most of them are still requiring masks when you enter and up until your food is served. All was well until one specific customer came in. First off, he wasn't wearing his mask properly; it barely covered his mouth, and his nose was not covered at all. Then when he was seated and had ordered his food, he told the waitress he was expecting a friend to join him.

  21. I get my second Pfizer shot on Monday and have arranged my teaching schedule on Tuesday to be light in case I have a reaction. With the first, all I had was a sore arm for a couple of days. But then, I am not sensitive to much, physically. No medication allergies, a few food sensitivities (some tummy trouble), but no allergies. But with the vaccine, I think the stronger reactions may mean that your immune system is doing its job.

  22. I got my first shot of Moderna on Monday. Felt pretty exhausted the next couple of days, and felt a little feverish and warm on Thursday. Ended up sleeping a lot all of those days, but I can't say for certain in was because of the vaccine shot. I'll be getting my second one the very first week in May.

  23. My husband and I are getting our first shots (Moderna) this evening. I am in the U.S. (Wisconsin) and our state opened up the vaccine eligibility to anyone over 16 on the 5th. I was fortunate to get an appointment right away, although we will have to drive an hour from home to the facility where they are administering it. My mom works at an inner city school and is now fully vaccinated which makes me happy. We haven't seen each other since early November. Most of my friends and family have already made appointments or gotten their first shot. I think summer will be a slow return to

  26. Those are very interesting questions and can add a lot to our understanding about how events unfold, but the topic was about Agreements, and no one "agrees" to events like this. So that's what the emphasis was for the show. I think it's important for a lot of new age and religious people to stop looking at such horrific events as something that was "meant to be" or is about "teaching us a lesson," etc. It really strips the humanity and humans from the reality of the situation. I am all for discussing the metaphysical mechanics behind the scenes but only after we understand that suffering, pain

  27. April 12/21 I had my first Pfizer vaccination yesterday in Toronto. Everything went well, my arm is a little bit sore and I am very grateful to have received my first shot. Even when I get my second dose I will continue to be just as vigilant. Our COVID numbers have climbed drastically since the Easter long-weekend. This global pandemic isn't going to be over any time soon.

  29. Reporting from Toronto, Canada, I got my first Pfizer shot today. The second shot is scheduled for July 28. After admission, as I was waiting in line for the vaccine, I looked around me and found myself, surprisingly, in awe. I started to cry but stopped myself as I didn't want anyone to think something was wrong and come over to help me. It was a large, simple, quiet space, warehouse-like, and I could see all these people, every shade of colour, from all over the world, some looking after others, doing paperwork, administering the vaccines, etc., and others receiving the tender ca

  31. Michael Speaks: June 2008] Excerpts: Old Soul politics return to a state of no politics, but more of what might be considered Anarchy. We use the word "anarchy" in its true definition, not as the Young or Mature soul might exploit the term. The anarchy usually takes on a form that would be recognized as Tribalism. From what we can see of other populations dominated by Old Soul Ages and paradigms, there are no governments that you would recognize beyond being more tribal groups in communication and exchange with one another, but with no discernible leader or authority.

  32. What do you mean by revolution? What do you mean by speed it up? In Capitalism, revolution has meant the violent overthrow of a ruling class. This often results in vengeance killings, destruction of infrastructure, supply chain destruction, and very often the people who take control are more interested in the collection of power than sticking to the ideals that brought them to power. See Lenin. Accelerationists exist. To give you an idea, many of these people open advocated either not voting in last election or voting for Trump. The unironic logic was a second Trump term wou

  33. I'm an anarchist too. RBE is essentially what has been called "common ownership of the means of production" in anarchist thought. I do think we need revolution (reformism from within existing mechanisms of power won't cut it), but I don't think that revolution will necessarily look the way we might imagine. While there may inevitably be some violence involved, I don't think this is going to be a case of "anarchists band together, fight a war against governments and corporations, and win." I think it will be a much more organic, decentralized, and long-term process of people just r

  35. Checking in... I got my first Pfizer shot early in March and the second one the third week of the same month. I was fine except for some lymph node swelling that started about 4 days out. That meant it was working. I had a day and a half of dizziness that came out of the blue but disappeared. One of my brothers insists he won't ever get a vaccination because he's afraid of being "microchipped". I had no fear. I stepped right up when it was my turn. What's the sense of living in the 21st century if you can't take advantage of our medical advancements?

Guilt is fear-based and, although a valid method for experimentation, does little in regard to what it appears to be accomplishing, which is determined by most as “learning a lesson”. Many believe Guilt helps generate a certain amount of consciousness about one's behavior, but from our perspective, it is a false awareness. There are 7 forms of Guilt, each relating to the Chief Feature from which it stems. There are 2 sour

I had no appetite and ate very little yesterday though. My stomach hurt because I was so hungry but I still couldn't eat and I got into bed early. I woke up today feeling raring to go (something I can't remember feeling in ages) but after an hour up that was gone too LOL. @Leela Corman I'm so glad you got your shot finally!

I've honestly felt it's presence more so than perseverance with the energy shift but I suppose perseverance is a great way to sort through the contradictions the cynic attitude presents so we can aim for a more active ever evolving intelligence in our lives.

My family also have had zero to no side effects, except one member who had a headache with dose one and fever and muscle aches with dose two (for about a day). Everyone else just experienced some tiredness. We've all gotten either Pfizer or Moderna. Most of my friends have also been vaccinated with at least the first shot. Our trick is to drink a bunch of water and electrolytes throughout the course of the day after getting the shot. Like, double the amount you'd usually drink. I also had a little chat with my body d

  49. @Sam K I tend to agree with you. I think it might be possible for certain types of legislation to lay the groundwork. I'm thinking how we elect officials to be one example of reforms in the current paradigm that could help. But the systems as it stands, no matter how much reformation, won't and can't get the job done alone. I think most people will and can agree with Anarchist ideals, but, that's a big BUT, many if not most feel helpless withing the current system. There is no escape because there is no other way. How can we make these ideals less ideal and more practical? All it will take is
