Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone. Makes me feel really wonderful.
- I added my website to my profiel, but it's only 1 page while I'm working on a "real" website. And I PMd you with my email address.
Yeah, 50 years. I am 59 this year (born in 1948), and I grew up Catholic but with a mother who was very much into "occult" things, and her mother as well. She never interfered with my Catholic upbringing (which she had to promise would happen as a condition of marrying my father), but once I started answering questions, SHE ANSWERED THEM! I really respect her for keeping her promise with never a groan or a roll of the eyes, but also for answering my questions honestly and openly. So I was going to seances by 6th grade. It was way cool. HOWEVER, as you point out it wasn't anything I could talk about with most people.
I never expected in my lifetime for things to change as much as they have, and it's miraculous to me, and makes me feel simply ebullient when I think of the changes I've seen in the "acceptance" and (relative) mainstreaming of metaphysical subjects -- not to mention the explosion of newly rediscovered ancient knowledge along with all the brand new knowledge in starting probably in the 60s.
You're so right about judgment. It's something I need to work on much, much more. I remember one channeled bit of information (don't remember the source) which has always stuck with me on the subject of judgment. We were told that "even after this lifetime is over, when you're reviewing your life, even then you don't get to 'judge,' just observe and note what you'd have done differently." I thought that was simply astounding, but it did make sense.
From what I've read elsewhere on the site PappaB is apparently doing well keeping a straight face in this thread.
Hahah. Well, if it's any consolation, as I read thru the thread as a whole, it seemed quite a bit like the posters here were toying with HIM a bit. It was a little as if you were saying, "Go away, little boy, you're bothering us. But if you won't, here's something to keep you busy." I LOVED the comment: "No more questions until you've got a stone in your hand." Very smart.
- Thanks for the welcome, and YOU GO, GIRL (re laying down the law!)
Well, that's enough for now. Peace and Love,
