It must be my need to find an outlet for my competitive alpha drives, or to possess knowledge and superiority over others. Even my aura seems
negative. I have said nothing against you, bluesma. But you have continually tried to diminish me by turning the topic at hand to my writing conduct.
You do not have to read it.
Look at the ones who allow themselves to be provoked, who allow themselves to be disparaged, and allow themselves to be bashed. They allow words to
alter their feelings. I cannot be blamed for how they feel when confronted with words.
Not once did I say "your aura seems negative"- never even mentioned the word "negative" until correcting your paraphrase of what I said. I specified
that I see nothing negative about your posts.
I also clearly corrected your assumption that my usage of the word aura had anything to do with woo-woo magic energies- it was a description of my own
subconscious associations- I take full responsibility for those, and shared it in the spirit of being honest and forthwith on possible things that
could influence my perception falsely.
I find it insulting to twist my words and meanings as if I am not talking about serious and real events and experiences.
I am basically a down to earth person, and don't have beliefs in "fleeing the darkness and negativity" or the "colors" of peoples auras.
My participation in this thread was not based on defending such beliefs either- it was spirituality as introspection, self analyzation, and exercises
which can be of aid in becoming more 'in this world' ultimately.
It is easy to say, "if you don't like it, don't read it" I started out liking it ... so of course felt drawn to continue reading it and participating.
I did not expect the way it turned. Perhaps you felt insulted, not understanding what I wrote, and it was a reaction to that- I tried to correct
that. I apologize if you felt insulted. It was not my intent.
ETA- crap I used the word "spirit"- it was NOT refering to an immaterial entity, it was used with this sort of meaning-
a : a special attitude or frame of mind
b : the feeling, quality, or disposition characterizing something
I cannot be blamed for how they feel when confronted with words.
Not into "blame" , myself, but into the most realistic observation as possible. An observation on what specific behaviors, actions or words stimulated
other behaviors, actions, or words, is what I meant to point out. I think your OP was not as provocative as some of the other posts you made. I was
adding an observation to one made that I think did not include those in the conclusion they presented.
