you in person to thank you.You were such a help to me if there is
such a thing as good karma you've got it. A day with the grandkids
is so precious. A day healthy without pain and misery enjoying the
weather a movie or shopping etc. You know what I've learned from
that God awful group where the eckists deal with the "detractors"
endlessly- That I just can't be bothered addressing people that
don't agree with me. I don't need to hear from Cher, thick as a
brick. Sparky there replying to me hasn't been where I've been
and he won't be going where I'm going. But he spent considerable
effort on his reply and thats better I guess then being ignored.
I was alone, cut off from my family.I was so sure I had found the
" way" based on sounds and fuzzy lights being fed bedtime stories
in eck books I always gobbled up. I volunteered at the open houses at
our eck center and seldom did anyone come while I played a hu tape
loudly or read a book off the booksale shelf. I'dlook at the photo
of Harold on the wall and wonder why I didn't hear him like others
did. I'd come to worship services that had little to do with my
life or improve anything.
I suffered for a long time when I left that damned cult and the
outcasting from people I knew for many years still smarts a bit.
But I still get their damn mailings for events in the area.
That really heavy cultists can't be helped til they make a move
to help selves for the most part. My former friend Kyley came
over to say hello in a spirit of goodwill and HE chooses not
to ask me why I left so I choose to leave him in peace. I don't
tell the Joes Witnessness in our downtown either
that they are wasting
their time in a cult freezing their ass off trying to give away
the Watchtower. I have better things to do...
Liked the new main photo replacing the buff Santa, the kitty has
had her day.
The smartest warriors choose their battles carefully and realize
life is precious and just because they chose to not cut off
someones nuts doesn't mean they can't. After losing 25 lbs I have to
watch to keep it off and I spend more time on health sites now then
here after my fathers best lesson for his son, his own gruesome
cancer death because he didn't take better care of himself. Better
care of myself emotionally also means life affirming communications like
this one for you and others. Re that response to me I knew it was
coming when he dissected
my little message like a dead frog in science class.
But this is here for the freshly ex eckists who will have
to deal all over again over and over again with the fresh wound
of a bitter divorce but a necessary one. People like you and me
can tell them they will heal and get through and life will
be greater again. Neither do I set myself up as an authority ,
I'm a musician and work at a desk job , I found more satisfaction
in tithing my talents in a youth band and senior service at
church then years of sitting at home on my ass chanting hu while
the world continued to go the ashcan.

Nice post, Mike. I enjoyed your thoughtful ruminations. It appears the
veil is beginning to lift for you. The travelling should be lighter
from here on.
I like that picture of klump in the shithouse, too. It suggests to me
he's gathering more material for the shariyat 3. The faithful have
been waiting a long, long time.
- Hi Everyone!
First of all - for Liz & anyone else with little ones, check out:
I started out showing my grandson, Codybear, some adorable animal
photos in my email, and now whenever he visits he starts yelling
"animals"!! I was looking for interesting websites to try to avoid
the Cookie Monster letter game <gg>, and this looks like a good one!
It's so amazing how he so quickly "got" that the mouse controlled the
arrow, and at 18 months he can actually maneuver the mouse pretty well
to send the cursor where he wants it to go! Kids definitey *are* born
with a computer gene!!
Just wanted to share this before I forgot.
But mostly, I popped in here to tell everyone, *do not* miss "Grizzly
Man" on Discovery - it's on tonight! Ohmigod, it's *so* awesome!!
First of all, just the incredible scenery is worth it - I have a
"thing" for Alaska, a long-ago dream was to "homestead" there.
Anyway, for some odd reason, it sort of connected with the whole e-
kult thing for me but I'm not going to go on a long ramble about it.
I'm laughing here, because anyone who's been familiar with me for a
long time knows how incredibly prolific I used to be. Hard to believe
I've sort of run out of things to say! Well, not really - but I just
don't feel like saying them until I'm doing it for the website.
Sometimes I'll get started writing something, either for here, email,
or another group - Eckankar Survivors Anonymous is *great*!! But I'm
rarely able to finish anything, and this past week I've been "blessed"
24/7 with my niece's 8-month-old daughter, which gives me another good
excuse to ignore the computer, except I'm missing FreeCell!
Arrghhh...love the little sweetie, but she just woke up & I gotta go -
I'd forgotten how busy those little ones keep you when you're the
"mom"!! I much prefer being the Grammy, it doesn't interfere with
naps & couch potatohood! <gg>
Well...I was planning on a few more comments but they'll have to wait!
