  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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"

  4. 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.

  5. 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!!

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. I got my second Moderna shot 2 days ago. Arm soreness was less than the first shot. I felt kinda yucky yesterday but really it could have been just normal yuckiness. 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 was also moved by the experience. As I sat during my 15 minute waiting period I felt

  10. For those of you still iffy after the energy shift, I thought I would share this article I read about the cynic attitude since it is a theme for this year. 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.

  11. First shot down! I haven't felt any negative side effects so far. 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

  12. @Wendy Yeah, that 15 minute waiting period was a nice time to look around and reflect on everyone there. Also, the end time of mine was 4:33, which is also the title of John Cage's famous/infamous silent composition, so I felt like that was a good gag from the universe.

  13. Pfzir first shot on Sunday the 11th of April at 9:00 AM in North Vancouver, no waiting. Mild aftershot symptoms, arm a little sore for a while that's all. Remembering that getting the shot PROTECTS OTHERS as well as yourself.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. One week after my second moderna shot - no side effects! Even my arm was less sore after the second round. Like @Becca the Student mentioned, I drank more water and I think it helped! Little anxious that our school district is planning for us to go back to in-person teaching on a hybrid schedule next week. We have less than 30 days of instruction, so it seems like an unnecessary risk for the students and their families at this point. I would be more comfortable if we started fresh in August after everyone who wants to has a chance to be vaccinated, but so grateful to be fully vacci

  17. @Juni, this would be a good question for Michael. How does he do it? Remote Viewing came to mind as well as perhaps his own special sensing. It would be interesting to see the Essence Roles/Roles Oscar represents for his Entity. Here's an excerpt from a session where I asked Michael about a friend's cat who didn't like people all that much but couldn't get enough of me on first meeting. It was so strange (to me) I asked Michael about it. Here's the link to Cat ~ Acting as a Medium or "Familiar". Maureen: When I was visiting my friend Aaron last year – at his brother’s place – his

I'm on a waiting list at my GP's, not hoping for anything yet, still so many issues with vaccinating the elderly, the first attempt at a mass vaccination center was quite the clusterf*¤%. We've been in lockdown for over a month? now. I don't even remember! The numbers were 1,500 positives a day before lockdown, now it's down to ca 500 a day, which is better, but still terrible...

  19. Haight-ashbury is a great example. I read a piece in the Atlantic by a guy who was there. The bad faith actors were rich Suburbanite kids who hated their parents and probably never worked in their lives. They took advantage and didn't contribute to an already fragile system of free clinics and subsidized rent. A better example was what the Chicago Black Panthers under Fred Hampton were doing. Organizing, free breakfast for kids, free clinics for people that lived in the area, peace treaties with the gangs, cop watch patrols to keep the CPD in line, etc. The panthers sti

  20. Got my first Moderna shot yesterday, at the very New England-named Dunkin Donuts Arena, or, as it is apparently calling itself, "The Dunk". I am extremely pleased with this very New England turn of events, it's very homely and nice and brings back memories of hot gross nights in Allston, MA in the '90s, getting off work or going to a friend's house late at night and the scent of half-stale donuts filling the air. I was very moved by the entire experience. A lot of people are working very hard at every level to get us these vaccines, and I could feel that there. I also felt slightly

  21. Got first my first p f i z e r dose two days ago. I had a little bit of fever (only got to 99.8*F) for a couple of hours the day after. My arm is still sore at the injection site, but only when I touch it or bend my arm a certain way. Hopefully the second dose in May will be similar, but I'm prepared for the side effects to be worse as I've heard multiple first hand accounts of the second one being a smidge more intense. Will update to let y'all know:)

  22. 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.

  23. 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

  24. I think a big step toward compassionate overhaul is trust. Many people are fed up with capitalism, but they don't trust their fellow humans to participate honestly in a different system. Part of that wariness is because of previous experiences where fascism used a cloak of socialism to gain a foothold, or where anarchists used violence to try to overhaul a system; another is because they're operating on an understanding of human psychology that's arisen out of capitalist hierarchical teaching and experience, and not an actual snapshot of who we are as a species on a base level.

  27. Ever since the energy shift and last week, my brain has felt a bit lobotomized. I kinda feel like I'm in a place of purgatory with this whole soul age level shift thing and everything feels sort of detached for the moment. I was delivering pizza during work one day and this song came on my shuffle and I felt one of those gut instinctual resonances that felt like a probability of what I'm realizing I want to do with the rest of my life after this level shift is done. It just feels so true with me and for the first time I actually resonated with lyrics that are actually optimistic. For as long a

  28. 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

  30. 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.

  32. @ckaricai I definitely see your points and just like any other political lens Anachism is just as multifaceted and diverse. There are many schools of Anarchist thought. And I tend to avoid the word "Libertarian" because it's been hijacked by conservatives in the US. "Libertarian" used to apply to the left in my understanding. There will always be power systems, either natural or manufactured. The point of Anarchy, in my opinion, isnt to remove these natural systems or change human nature but to at the very least not have a system in place that is literally designed to

I can really only speak about my locality and peers when I say this, but I see a ton of apathy around me. All the people I know and love resent capitalism in some way, but all who I speak with dont see any other way... there is NO alternative in their eyes. And I suppose "speeding" the thought revolution up would entail helping people realize there is an alternative... many actually. How did we live before the last 300 years of capitalism?

  37. A world with no leadership is not possible. Even within a lateral political structure there will be leadership and/or representatives. It may be that instead of one ruler there would be a council of representatives. In a world with billions of people at the very least there needs to be someone or some group of people to arbitrate disputes - those will never go away. It may be that disputes don't lead to wars but lack of production. Meaning things that projects that need to get done just don't get done because people are at impasses. Someone or some group will need to organize people when it's

  43. @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

While I find The Greatest Showman itself to be an okay movie overall, this part tends to get me. I noted this once already when Bobby mentioned this song in his dream thread, but this is a song (and scene) that for me resonates with something deeply, wonderfully human. There's the context of the song itself (recognizing and redeeming/returning to what matters in life, namely loved ones), but part of me could see a reflection

[Excerpt from Energy Report: July 2016 ] The Cynic Attitude in itself is not inherently unpleasant, but for those not familiar with it or are uncomfortable with contradiction, even the best of Cynic energy can feel inconvenient at best, but when Cynic is moving through the Negative Pole, Denigration, it can be an invisible, heavy weight that seems to strip the joy and life from everything and is exhausting. July begins with Cynic in the Negative Pole. This appears to be showing up as our students feeling a concerted effort to “stay positive,” to keep their vision intact
