Suzanne 4800 miles away. You show up in two places at once! Wish I could be in 2 places at once. Stop the world I want to get off!

Doug I've sent out lots of private messages. Less than 1/2 message back. know what I think? Why would anybody register on this site and then not respond? I bet that many of the "entities" here are crapflood and false registrations by the global cabals infiltraitors and their software programs.

Suzanne You are probably correct. Trust has been destroyed, the internet is owned. I do not see this going anywhere, every man for himself. Best of luck to us, we are going to need it.

Doug Why don't you flip a finger at the global cabal by installing linux on your pewter? Bill Gates and his wife are sticking needles into defenseless little kids in Africa. Why support them by using Windows?

Suzanne I am leaning towards flipping the finger at electronics. Want a simple life free from that type of 'connection'. Face to face human interaction would go a long way towards healing. This seems to have gone too far. Nothing is real, all fake.

Doug Ahhh, but that is what we are up to.......face to face. A few of us members are already using linux to communicate "face to face" on a program called Linphone. Our intent is to form "virtual" circles for members who are isolated and too far from the next member to practically meet over coffee. Of course it is better to get rid of the "electronics". But you are here Suzanne and there are members who you will click with if you find em.

Maks suzanne I think not jsut two places, but all places and placeless dimensionless and formless, however needs to be embraced, I m not best tutor on it, still getting knack at it..
Kae Linn Doug, Doug, Doug, you are just who Im looking to ask questions about Linux...is there an inexpensive version we can add to a machine & get rid ow windows? ty 💚

Dale of the Weald I know how you feel Suzanne, I too have sent out private messages to meet up locally, but no reply for over a week. I'm getting impatient! This website was meant to bring people together so they can meet face-to-face, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Lula OK-so maybe there are not yet many people signed up here in your area. Its still early days. Maybe the people you have pm'd have not yet responded. (so far I have not found that to be the case btw).....but surely you don't want to cop out so early? Use this as an excuse? I apologise for being on a bit of a rant, but come ON people- Whats difficult about understanding the principle of reaching out to your NEIGHBORS where you are NOW...and get relating and talking with them. Why wait? What are you waiting for?? Do you rub shoulders with anyone at all, anywhere? THESE are people too, really. They may be 'in a trance' but, its up to you you really don't need to wait. Just find initial points of interest- make 'em up if you must! Bake a loaf of bread and share it. Organise a kids activity outing...set up a local artists open day- use your IMAGINATION to bring people together, gain some trust and friendship, then ask (maybe gently) about common concerns. This is the doorway...now you are on your way to touching their troubles/areas of care and concern. Once you are speaking to people's hearts, you are there, in large part. Surely we are not here to bombard folks with more info which may seem dire or distressing (cos it often is, cos that's why its been created, right?) think it through...create commUNITY where you ARE. You can join up with more seasoned reinforcements as you go, but once you have a small local group- you're away. Don't wait for any website to DO it for you- its a really great vehicle and improving all the time thanks to Mat and his dedication, but it's a tool to support and help- YOU are the one that needs to activate. Once you really commit, things will work in favour of the truth-vibrations currently being expressed in so many ways. Do you think its the right approach to have things served up on a plate? The idea is growing; the website is growing; WE are growing; is it not true that we need help each other to grow the food, create a new recipe, cook it, season accordingly and only then sit down to enjoy a new dish? Whats the point in having it as a ready-meal? Get what I mean? Sorry my friends- I'm not wanting to sound preachy- just talking from my experience of just jumping in. Have a little (more) faith in the process- but don't be attached to the outcome. In Lak'ech

Lula I know that's a massive long rant ...here is the short version for those NOT wanting to spend long on the screen;-) " Wise as serpents. harmless as doves" Someone wise reminded me of this recently and it sooo works a treat- GO, try....

Rosie Dear Lula, don't you think I'v tried? My local Community is not ready. I've learnt this from experience.
Friday 11 September 2015, 17:26:20
Maks I follow Rosie on this, younger generations kind a grasp me, get the clue, however in my local community, I mean lets be honest, beside presence I cant give them anything at the moment. think globally act locally I have switched to think universally act globally and that exclude my physical presence and it as divident cures my egoism...
Friday 11 September 2015, 17:30:02
Lula Just out of interest (and to help the FCP pitch accordingly) what does a 'community that's ready' look like to you? Please don't think I'm being pedantic- I really want to hear... and, surely part of our 'task' is to set an example of what 'ready' looks like ourselves. If we do this in a way that vibrates with the truth (our own truth) then you radiate something that attracts people to the events and gatherings and meetings you propose. In my experience, in many places in many circumstances, this really, really works like magic. Cos it is!! ;-)

Rosie I don't demand much of the people around me but trust me lady there are some places where doing what you want me to do when you're all alone can be outright dangerous. I don't want my house set on fire for example.
Friday 11 September 2015, 20:54:26
Lula I hear you Rosie. Frankly, I'm willing to have my (wooden) cabin set on fire. Its quite possible. In my local village, people have been shot no so very long ago for speaking out as I am doing... and, I am a single mother with a 93 year old Mum living here too. My son is home-schooled (now 14) and frankly, could be taken away from me. I am still willing to risk the life I hold dear, because I see the future as bleak frankly, for my son and others his age...so, I am taking the risk... of course, I do not and cannot ask or 'want you' to do anything...only offering encouragement, support and suggestions. Surely this is why you, and indeed all of us, are here? In Lak'ech.

Lula I found that sincerely putting the things and the people I love most 'on the line' gave me a gift of courage and determination that I have never felt before. Its like a gift in return for the surrendering. I just would like people to get a sense of this as its so powerful and wondrous. Not New Age!!!! very Real. But, I found, requires commitment and heart-felt participation.
Friday 11 September 2015, 22:56:36
Maks I hear you lula but please understand I live in country devastated by civil war, and then killed to ashes in transition trough liquidation, there s a lot of agony, despair, these that so to say sold their faith for dinner and are majority are part of party which is tyrannical in it s order and is censoring on quite anything. these that had guts to keep whatever honor they had left trough this decimation that counts on since 1990 for 3 quarters of my life are desperate and cant be moved, granted they still try to put bread for their family on table while same time not to belong to political orgy and outright thievery but their desperation is impenetrable. I work better in small groups, but even then when hosting such people I just see they can't share "insights" they will stand for much longer but not much can be done, it s similar to position pat"" position in chess, no one moves and people look at me strangely I know they wish to be stubborn like me, dealing divorce over money but still pushing my non profit organization even my own wife run away with our kid because of hers material non-satisfaction. you see whatever bad can happen, already is either happening or happened already to me and I handle it with each passing day with more smile on my face, "I just had to fall and lose it all but in the end it doesn't even matter" (linkin park) but not all have this stoicism, I was prepared for all this trough many crashes of my life and what is mine can not be taken away from me "all comes back to me in the end" but to people in my country, they either lost their hope or sold their humanity for petty achievements and saddening I can't help it though I tried, so all I can further do is be an example in whatever life brings me further, sincerely, maks

Rosie You are right Lula. Do you have friends who stand with you where you are though? I have to choose my battles actively going out to the community in which I live now would be pointless, would have the adverse effect of what I am trying to achieve and would have devastating on a personal level that I would not like to discuss online. Though I admire your courage you would do wisely not to judge people you have never met and WHOs lives you dont know. I will not be idle, but I will choose my battles.
