the answer to your last question is I don't care.
I don't have to fit anyone anywhere only be true to myself
and what I understand as my creator.
Elsewhere I have said though that it is a personal decision
to continue to follow the mystic and "voices " as many people
do including Shirley Maclaine but it is equally valid to
go to a show it prove it status accepting no others experiences
that we haven't had. Who made you such an authority on my or
our "search anyway?
