It's a lesson in emotions. You're being shown how strong they are in the NP.
I still get the sadness one and it normally precedes a disaster. Two recent ones before the earthquakes for example.
Try to understand it as a message and not become too attached to the way you were shown it.
Keep an eye on the news too. You may find something very familiar.

 I see we have been going to the same "school" my friend!  wink

 Just to answer a quote of yours in your "Beginnings" portion of your website here. "Should I let others know? Am I meant to do this at all?"
 Most people don't care to know. They seem to think that there is nothing to be learned of importance from the past, since Humanity is dubbed and thinks it is the "Master Race". They are sorely wrong about that. But only time will show that to be true to all.

 The people that "need" for some reason to be shown the truth are getting the information on a subconscious level or with this practice a "Non Physical level", where it can't be blocked by those that wish this info to remain stifled.

 Humanity always pushes to go forward. Progress is good. But we shouldn't ignore or allow our ego to for-go what we have been taught in the past either. The same goes with this practice of Astral Projection in general.

"Justice" is one of those words that gets people into trouble..."
 Other loaded words I avoid are god and truth. I'm not as svelte as I used to be, so to tussle with another is to be avoided.
  And, Mr Water, you may not be the wind beneath my wings but you are certainly a refreshing breeze.

"Justice" is one of those words that gets people into trouble... not the least of which because different people think of different concepts of it, and then have a conversation about it as though everyone else in the conversation has the same concept in their head as they do.

So to even start the conversation, the definition being used must be discussed and agreed on first.

That is primarily what Plato's Republic was about actually... figuring out a definition for the concept of justice that makes sense.

Thrasymachus, one of Plato's opponents in the discussion, didn't believe there was such as thing as justice. He asserted that when people use that word, they are really talking about the tendency of the stronger to force their will on the weaker through law (thus he called justice the "advantage of the stronger"). Sadly, in my country this seems to be a large part of what law is for.

His answer by the way, was sort of strange to modern ears. He basically said that justice was when everyone did the job they were best suited to (everything in its proper place), and that within a single individual, when that person was motivated by appetites, but ruled by reason tempered by noble emotions.

Plato's idea of justice was more about what people contribute to society.

I think the modern concept of justice is more concerned with everyone receiving what they are believed to be due... be it money, or debt, reward, punishment, etc. But of course that opens up a whole new discussion about what people actually deserve, and how we know this.

Quote
A non specific example. If you had two factions, each with competing belief systems. If those of both factions were acting justly, they would operate with the understanding that the others beliefs are as legitimate as their own and would leave out ideas of who is right or wrong. By acting justly you would commit to a personal examination of the situation where you try imaginatively to see through the others eyes. To cultivate empathy, to nurture it and to take satisfaction in its growth in yourself is to be just. When you you look out of the eyes of another and see yourself, you will act justly.

This idea of justice has more to do with Plato's concept than the modern notion I think, insofar as it is concerned with how a person would best act, rather than what they are due.

I agree with it to a point, but of course there is the caveat that not every opposing position is justified or defensible. For instance, say that I am arguing to you that you do not exist. From your perpective, questions of solipsism aside, you know conclusively that you exist. Other people will be demonstrably wrong, and in situations that will have major consequences. Learning to understand their perspective is helpful, and it will help explain where they are making errors, and how to best reason with them, but I think often this does not mean that we should consider their position equally valid alongside our own. 

But outside of that, the principle applies pretty broadly. To use my own country as an example again, I think people in the US are often guilty of not fully understanding the viewpoints of their political opponents. People surround themselves with like-minded people, and frequent the same media outlets and idea exchanges. Very few people are reasonable enough to learn how their "enemies" think.

Hello everyone. I used to be active here in the past, when I shared a common view with most of the members of the Pulse. Some years ago I left in order to proceed with my own researches. Since then, my understanding of things changed so radically that ended up isolated, and kept most of my ideas to myself and a few close friends.

But I have learned so many things that I simply can't keep them all to myself, so I decided to share, and I don't care if people are going to believe or not.

One of the things that I've learned is that if you cannot find the truth for yourself, then there is absolutely no hope for you. Who can you trust in a world where everyone is after his own interests? If I say one thing is true and another person says it's false, how do you decide who is right if the answer is not so obvious?

I believe that there is hope, and if you really want to know the truth about something that is out of reach, whether because it's in the past or a place far away, a divine part within you can show you the answers, as long as you seek them with a pure heart and a sincere desire to learn.

You can check out my website to understand what I'm talking about. I have all the evidences to back up my claims, and I'm going to gradually share them. As a monk I dedicate myself exclusively to developing my spiritual abilities and knowledge.

My astral experiences deal with a lot of these spiritual and unconventional things that I study, so I feel uncomfortable relating them, but when it's possible I'll continue giving my perspective on other people's experiences.

Don't be indifferent to this.

Will justice ever lead too peace or is there too much desire for power and selfishness in this universe that every time justice has succeeded a new war or some sort of conflict occurs each time
For me, as I've observed historically and currently, justice is a euphemism for revenge and as such, is reactive. Again, to me, true justice is active, in that if one were acting justly, many poor outcomes need not happen. A non specific example. If you had two factions, each with competing belief systems. If those of both factions were acting justly, they would operate with the understanding that the others beliefs are as legitimate as their own and would leave out ideas of who is right or wrong. By acting justly you would commit to a personal examination of the situation where you try imaginatively to see through the others eyes. To cultivate empathy, to nurture it and to take satisfaction in its growth in yourself is to be just. When you you look out of the eyes of another and see yourself, you will act justly.

You mean like... graphically dark? Like dark background, light text?

I expected you to be talking about something else... like dark vs light content, whatever that might mean, lol.

I think I prefer dark background, so I will vote assuming that is what you mean  wink


I too prefer a darker background because, like me, it's easy on the eyes. I see your wink, Stillwater and raise you a self satisfied smirk.

You are talking to yourself. Seriously... It can actually be far more interesting than you think.

Gabriele explained it to me like this. It's your voice and you can use it anyway you want to. You can intentionally lend it to someone else to use but it's still your voice.

It can be a useful thing and or  it can be a pain the posterior gluteous maximus

The more you pay attention the better your little system will become.

It's the basis of all psychic work
It's believed to be a survival mechanism which originally helped humans avoid danger and find food.
All higher mammels exhibit this trait.
It can be developed and refined
The inherent accuracy is about 60% in most people according to parapsyc studies.
