Trying to stay positive...
The 51 page thread is locked, very well, I am glad for that. Whatever there is to say about that, well, should have already been said in that thread. Too late to go back to it now.
However, it does coincide with something happening in my world outside this forum, lovely synchronicity, some effort to retake control over my own destiny, if that's a reasonable way to describe the tribulations. The story begins in the year 2006, and the appropriateness of telling it here... Well, let's just say that I got back to the point where I was before things went terribly wrong (or terribly right via silver lining), and everything is steadily turning towards the positive. Some inner strength, I like it.
You see, it's all about positive. Solid optimism, the glass is 100% full; that's 45% water, 45% air, and 10% the glass itself. (Gotta include that, too) I notice, the more positive I become, the more the negative people start falling by the wayside, like they simply no longer exist on my radar scope, the stealthy bastages, I know they're still out there, and I feel like I need to reach out to them, to lift them up out of the depths of hell. How to do that?
Seems that for the longest time I've been having to process the negative emotions of others, it's like their glass gets 100% full of bitterness, and so to keep it from overflowing, where do they dump it out? Well, would it be so bad if they refilled it with clean water instead of sludge?
And, that's what I felt about that thread, it begins with a negative about how wrong something or somebody else is, and then procedes to cast aspersions against others who would disagree, and how does that make sense? I find it's best to reserve that tactic to use against the warmongers, that they're the ones who deserve the shame. Yet, others seem to use that tactic for every conversation they have, regardless. Has little to do with male/female, liberal/conservative, religious/scientific, etc. Has everthing to do with optimism/pessimism, could be anyone at any time according to their mood.
Is it strange I see that happening on the forum most often when I see that happening in the real world here? What's up with that? Seems to be what the posters are on about in this thread so far.
Of course, there is something in/of the power of suggestion, but I feel we are grown ups here, the general awareness we are all self-sovereign, the only rightful authorities are mods and admin. Beyond that, what goes outside the boundaries of the forum, would be the governments of our respective countries, which happen to be free countries, so that we're all within the laws and regulations as far as we can see.
That leaves only the emotional objects of fear and temptation, what things 'jump out', what things 'strike a nerve', what echoes inside the skull, so to speak. Hmmm...
I've registered for other talking boards before where I've yet to hear back from the admins to activate my account. I suppose if I was a teenager trying to ask a girl out on a date, I would feel bad about rejection, but do I sell myself short? Or, can I help it if I'm too strong a stage presence for them to handle? Sure, that's anecdotal, but that's self-confidence, knowing one's own power. (Would only be narcissims when I'm in proximity to others who are more self-loathing, you see?)
Something I've always had, a personal magnetism, is why I am open minded about concepts such as 'indigo children' and 'channelling', is also why I am sensitive to the feelings in the posts of Upagainstit, there is a passion there about being solid in one's own way, and how that fella must have been surrounded by jealous fools or something, would cut him down for being more beautiful than them.
(Is that to blow smoke up Upagainstit's ass, you bet it is, the most original writing style I've ever seen, deserves some kind of salute.)
Anyways, I could ramble on for another ten pages of fluffy nothings here, so you can put that debriefs in your pipe and smoke it, baby.
