1  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / Boundless Energy for All on: June 16, 2006, 20:17:24
The notion came to me in a flash as I was on a walk trying to absorb energy on a beautiful spring day. In a moment of, "Duh! Why didn't I think of this before?" the revelation felt like a veil lifting from my consciousness.

The next morning at Mass I attempted it and immediately felt rejuvenated. It was as simple as asking the Holy Spirit during prayer/meditation to fill me and "recharge my batteries" so to speak.  Then I focused on my energy centers, opened everything full bore and drew in an overflowing pureness from all directions.

After a couple weeks of this and feeling generally better about just about everything I missed a week of church and I could feel a gradual "powering down" so to speak. I experimented a little by trying it every other week and found my energy/spirit was high for about 7 days afterward. Though there were weeks when it was less. These were usually weeks I had five or six too many beers on a couple nights and little sleep due to my World of Warcraft addiction.

I was apprehensive about sharing but felt directed to offer this up for those who might be receptive. I hope it can help those who are.

Cheers!  :celebrate:

Quote from: Frank
Hi:

The problem with the "commie" thing is a lot of people in Europe have long since moved on. I'm not sure if Mr MadLordNad actually realises that a number of ex "commie" countries are now actually formal members of the European Union.

I do think it is a tad ironic that one of my good friends is an American living in New York, and her husband is an Iraqi citizen. From her I am assured that our friend is not representative of anyone she knows, put it that way.

People in Europe are used to dealing with different nationalities living on their doorstep. For example, I drive a few hours one way and I'm in Spain, the other and I'm in Italy, go north east and I'm in Switzerland, turn right just before I get there and drive for a bit and I'm in Germany.

If you live in the USA, imagine the overall landmass split up into states as it is now, but think of each state as being a completely different country with their own history, own government, own laws, own language, own customs, etc., and up until a few years ago, their own currency. That is how it is like living in Europe.

As such, people in Europe are very much more used to thinking in terms of diplomacy and negotiation between governments, and embracing the differences between people of many different nationalities.

We have long since embraced the notion of bringing the ex-communist countries of the old Soviet Union into the European fold. Plus, people tended to see the Cold War as generally an "American thing". So when it all stopped in the late 1980's we all kinda breathed a sigh of relief and got on with the building of relationships with our neighbours. Because in Europe these countries you speak of are actually here, right next-door to us, sitting on the same land mass.

Because of the vast differences that exist, people in Europe have lived with terrorism for as long as we can remember. Particularly in England with the troubles in Ireland. Several decades ago, the IRA was branded by the English government as a terrorist organisation, and this organisation has been responsible for exploding many a bomb. Killing and maiming all manner of people over several decades.

But people in the main, both English and Irish, have now embraced the idea of negotiation and the bringing of the leaders of this organisation into the political fold. Because thatís the only real way the fighting is going to stop. You canít have a police officer or a soldier on every street corner, 24 hours a day.

I think what people generally, especially in Europe, are beginning to realise is that fighting simply leads to more fighting; and when the US government talks about protecting world interests, what they actually mean is: protecting American interests.

In the midst of all the bluster that surrounds the conflict in Iraq, there is one fact that shines out like a lighthouse. Hardly anyone in the USA, government or otherwise, would give a stuff about Iraq, its government, its people, nothing, they wouldn't give a damn. If it were not for the fact that Iraq has the second largest oil-reserves in the world. And that's what it all boils down to. All those people are suffering and dying, not in a fight for freedom, but in a fight to control the oil flowing out of that country.

There are many, many other countries in the world where gross atrocities are committed. Plus, thirty seven and a half MILLION children die every year in the world from lack of basic needs, such as food, shelter, and basic medicine. So put your atrocities argument away, it doesnít wash here.

You talk about France. The French people, as a rule, are very independent minded and they do not take kindly to other governments telling them how they should conduct their internal affairs. Thatís why I like it here. In the main, itís the people that rule here, not the state.

Unlike in my home country, England. Parliament there has become nothing more than a US puppet regime. Many people are reacting against it. You would never see the French government acting in such a way. The French people simply would not stand for it. There would be another revolution!

Yours,
Frank


My problem with people who disagree with the actions of my country right now is that they're NOT outraged by murderers. But Rather blame the victim for the crimes committed against her. How is it wrong to wage war against those who would and have killed us (that's right you too)? And if I sound like Donald Rumsfeld now good! This isn't about oil? That's upsurd! Besides we get more than 50% of our oil from Canada....

The fact is those who are against this war just aren't upset at all about terrorists and couldn't care less if they kill Americans or whoever. And if we act in our own self intrest and defense (gasp -- countries have never done that) then it must be about money...  evil Please...

Our enemies are evil. We've been attacked by them for over 20 years all the while trying it your way. We've negotiated and talked and gotten UN resolution after resolution. NOTHING GOOD CAME FROM IT. The time for talk is over and in my mind if you thwart us you're in league with our enemy. BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT ENEMIES DO. Its not too hard to figure out.

Wrong. Do the Japanese or Germans still attack us? This is an absurd statement because if you follow the logic defending yourself will only lead to having to defend yourself more... So give up now. That doesn't make sense. The benefits of our actions are obvious and speak for themselves. There is honest and good change happening in the middle east -- no thanks to the UN.

And while yes the death caused by said war is sad it is war after all -- one we didn't start by the way. In fact our excessive worry about collateral damage is hampering the war effort. No matter what though, we can't do right by lefty estimates so I don't see why we bother since its prolonging the suffering.

Ok, so I'm liberal with my commie usage. There's an irony there I think. But what I find more ironic is the fact that the "ex-commie" countries in the EU are more appreciative of their freedom than those who traditionally have had it longer and fought so hard for it just 50 years ago. It was France who told those new or prospective EU countries to mind their place when they supported our (the US) efforts in the middle east. So they don't like taking orders but they sure like giving them... I take issue with people/countries who say they're my/our friend in one breath and in the next stab us in the back. So call it "independent" if you want but I'll call it "coniving" and even "treacherous".

You long ago embraced the ex-communist counties huh? All on your own? LOL!! Oh, and up until the end of WWII Europe wasn't very good at playing nice with their neighbors. I'd say they still aren't though they can put on a good show.

You assume we here don't know what its like to live next to some one different.  shocked That's the most amazing thing considering we have citizens from every corner of the globe. I can go two blocks down the road and run into countless mexicans. We celibrate our contributing cultures here but its our commonality which binds us and gives us an identity. Do you consider yourself a EuroUnioner? I doubt anyone else in the EU does either.

What are the basic reasons these countries are in such straights? Could it be the people aren't FREE? And aren't we already derided for acting like the world police? I know there's a double standard where the US is expected to do the most for everyone when there's trouble but then when we do something we're criticized for not doing enough or not doing it right. If the French/UN want to be so great why don't they pool their socialist resources and do something...? Oh that's right they're already in Africa causing more attrocities... My bad.

You are correct. I was wrong to insult the french. Its their government (mostly) I take issue with. I ask you though, how is it an insult to name someone a communist if they are a communist? Is it a "bad" word? Aren't they proud of their leanings?

I do understand the differences between socialism and communism but since they're slight I group them both together for simplicity sake. I can see how that could be confusing in a heated discussion though. So I will be more specific in the future.

People have been saying around here there is an upcoming Paradigm shift in this planet. Well that change has happened in me. I refuse to sit back and take blatant ignorant Anti-Americanism. And just to be clear ignorant doesn't mean stupid it means uninformed. As I've said in previous posts I am here to learn about Astral Projection but will confront attacks on (since thats what Anti-Americanism is) my country where I see them. I will be sure to do so in the future in accordance to board policy.

I think its revealing on your part that any critique of US policy is dismissed as being 'communist'. The old 'communist' accusation only serves to make you come across as the typical jingoistic gung-ho type who blindly swallows all the rhetoric and spin churned out to you, without ever stopping to question it; a typical stance of this type of person is to proclaim everything that doesnt agree with their limited world view 'communist'.

This line says it all:
Explain how Iraq is a mess again? It looks like a HUGE success from my non communist eyes

Its all a bit dim really.


Critique? It sounded more like craven terrorist appeasement to me.  And who made you the sole criticizer and denouncer? I'm calling you lefties out. You say the liberation and subsequent fervent popular elections in Iraq are wrong then what is right? More talking? Give me a break. Freedom is on the march and socialists can't stand it but won't admit they can't stand it. Your hypocrisy is obvious for all to see though and the Iraqis will not thank you for your inaction. The Lebanese will soon be free and so will the Iranians. Freedom isn't free but its certainly worth fighting for -- your fathers and grandfathers know that but they are remiss by letting you forget.

The day I give a crap what a bunch of terrorist apologists feel about me or what my "commie" comments make me look like to them is the day I shoot myself in the head. So don't hold your breath. Commie in this instance is a catch-all phrase for all America-hating whiny crybaby socialists -- its hardly limited at all.

Quote
blindly swallows all the rhetoric and spin churned out to you, without ever stopping to question it;
Only the blind question the obvious... perhaps a seeing-eye dog will help you understand the world better since you are only able to see what the terrorists and those who want them to win, want you to see.

Ignore the free Iraqis and Afghanis, protests in Lebanon and Iran and Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Ignore Libya giving up their WMD plans and many other GOOD things happening. But none of that matters because PEOPLE ARE DIEING! OH NO! News flash commie -- They were dieing before , but now they've got a cause to better themselves. If I'm Jingo because I want them to succeed then I guess I'm guilty as charged. See comment above about not caring.

Quote from: Gandalf
I think this is all just rhetoric from the bush administration.

This is because Iraq has been such a mess and so much more difficult than Bush ever thought it would be (remember the ineptly named 'mission acomplished' speech anyone?), that anything on a similar scale for iran is completely out of the question.

This war has actually shown the military limitations of the US more than anything.. the US military is already stretched to breaking point by Iraq and there is no way they could possibly afford to wage the same level of conflict in iran at the same time.. impossible.
That was probably the original plan, i'm sure, but iraq is turning out to be so costly, both in terms of money and lives, that a full scale attack of iran or even syria is totally out of the queston.. the army simply couldnt handle two iraqs on the go at the same time.

So they are resorting to secondary tactics, which is scare-mongering... only i dont think its really that scary... perhaps worst case scenario, they might afford to spare a few missile launches and air attacks on certain alleged facilities within the country, but thats about it.


As for Blair joining Bush again for Iran, I think that if he went for this a second time the British people really would lynch him!

Doug

PS Also,  taking potshots at Iran and Syria is not exactly what i call a sound strategy when you are trying to bring stability to Iraq. Have they ever bothered to look at the geography of the region? Iran shares one of the biggest borders with Iraq, with Syria close behind...  You need to be cultivating safe borders and a positive relationship with Iraq's neigbours if you want any hope of stopping suicide bombers and other fanatics from getting through, but US swaggering at Iran and Syria isnt going to help, in fact by doing that you will just create a situation that allows more of these people to slip through, while the Iranian and Syrian government do little to stop it. And if you think an all out invasion is going to help you've got another thing coming.. most likely an all out jihad.. not the best strategy under the circumstances.

I think a lot of people dont realise that there is a massive difference between Iraq an Iran. Far from all the crud about connections between al-queda and Iraq, the reality was that Iraq was a secular military dictatorship, that in fact fundamentalists like Bin Laden etc actually hated! They detested Sadam and Bathists as infidels and not proper muslims.
Iran on the other hand is an *islamic state*.. attack that and you are attacking Islam.. a WHOLE different kettle of fish.. the US is stirring the hornets nest with this strategy!



Sigh...  Wars are based on campaigns of which can have multitudes of missions. The invasion was complete and successful. IE -- Mission Accomplished. NEXT MISSION...  

Explain how Iraq is a mess again? It looks like a HUGE success from my non communist eyes. And I had to quote this twice it was so ridiculous,

So what. Its ALREADY stirred. Kick it again then set it on fire. You may think pooping your pants and running away because the bad people are coming is the best way to deal with people who murder hundreds of school children and saw off people's heads for fun and profit. That might be OK with you commies and you can hide in your world of puppy dogs and rainbows all you want. Those of us with balls and a spine will take care of you... like we've always done.  But that's pretty damn sorry if you ask me. Lame, yellow and Frog eatin' sorry.

'Iran attack? Just Say No, Tony

Tony Blair can't Say Sorry for taking us to war under false pretences. Now George Bush is talking about taking action against Iran. Perhaps Tony Blair can be encouraged to 'Just Say No' to George Bush on this occasion. OWOS is running a major campaign calling for Tony Blair to stop being an instrument of US foreign policy.'

As for beer, anything in excess is harmful. Too much oxygen makes your lungs weak and unable to cope with the natural atmosphere. Its people who abuse it which makes it bad.

The self appointed governing country of this Earth?  cheesy  cheesy  That's a good one.

Its obvious you hate my country so I'll bite. I accused him of being a commie for several reasons some of which I'll attribute to you as well. You see, communism in its modern forms -- even its b@st@rd half brother socialism, is the antithesis of what the USA is about. Which is living your life as YOU see fit without the government's interference. Its called freedom. You may want to surrender your freedom to appointed UNaccountable corrupt international bureaucrats but I'll pass thanks.

You can keep getting upset too because I'll continue to call people out when justified. If you don't like it tough. I'm here to learn about Astral Projection not put up whiny crybaby anti-Americanism.

Perhaps you should take an economics class from a non-leftist professor.

How am I arrogant for being indignant to inane hostile Anti-American comments? I call it, "Not putting up with it!" I don't believe I should have to tolerate something anyone else here wouldn't have to. If the tard above had said something against Canuks or Frogs then you all would have jumped on him for being racist or mean but say "I hate America" and that's alright. Its called the commie double standard. I'm saddened no other Americans here called him on it or accept such treatment. Perhaps they will in the future.

Don't go to the UK Komrade. They don't need any more commies. GO TO CHINA!

Or maybe you're just a hateful person. If you can't get anywhere in life maybe its not everyone around you but yourself instead. You asked for help then rebuffed those who offered advice -- even those who may have been kindly Americans (imagine that)!

Being an American myself, things seem to usually go right for me... that must be because I need validation from you to feel superior... OR I'm a psychic vampire!  cheesy
