Perhaps that has something to do with the fact that online is pretty much the only place in Utah where porn can be found.

Yeah, pretty interesting huh? lol He became mainly a Mormon because of his alcohol and drug abuse, along with finding a hot looking woman. Nothing really more with anything else that has to do with that religion. One side note, kind of sadly funny that Utah has the most suicides than any other state, and they also download the most porn than any state. Goes to show what a wonderful godly so called religion they think they are.


They don't just think they are

Your even more wrong about the porn. I guess people will just make up anything to attack religious people these days.

WHATT??? Utah is at the bottom? hmm Guess I heard wrong. But this is not wrong.

Ha ha ha Yeah but suggesting UTAH is obsessed with porn is not accurate. Have you ever been to utah? Just try to find an adult book store a sex shop or a hustler magazine. I can understand why they download the most, it's about the only way they are going to get any there. They have very strict restrictions on that stuff. Funny though regardless lol


Ha! But come on! Who really goes to adult books stores now and buys a Hustler or Playboy or goes out and buys a DVD when it is online? So essentially it goes with all states.

Ultimately we remain divided and the catch 22 paradox is that it's only through that division that we can remain manifest here on this temporal and dimensional plane.

If we eliminate the divisions there is little reason, to not revert back to the one we are.

Perhaps it is simply my fault friend, I do not know, I like it here and do not wish to move on. Efforts have been made in the not to distant past, but I am just not ready to give it up.

If in our divided thinking we can accept our true inherent nature then yes we could leave this dimension and manifest else where some where else, perhaps even create the utopian garden envisioned, though it's always led to the same kind of boredom just being one leads to.

If we effect that here, then we loose the illusion and can no longer pretend that there is not just one.

I think the only thing that is going to convince us is letting the story play out as written and just accepting then that the time alloted was the time alloted.

In the aftermath it will seem easier to accept then, and we won't mind so much.

I still fear I will miss this, I have always been the sentimental type, I grow fond of things, and often lament the temporal nature of the good that we manifest.

It's only through the illusion that it's so difficult to acheive and contrasting it with the bad that makes it seem as real as it is.

I am just not ready, it will happen soon enough. Why hurry?

I like many things here as well and wish to maximize my opportunity to experience them. I don't believe divisions (polarities) are an all or nothing proposition. Hot and cold running water will still exist but imaginary borders will not. Do we require wars, poverty and hatred of one another? Do the rich really need the poor so they can be rich by comparison or can everyone partake of abundance? I'm not aware of any system of sharing the misery equally that truely produces levelling.

We'll be united in synthesis predominantly under tyranny or freedom. We have to choose which to favor and we tip the balance from the center whilst the great opposites of light and dark battle for supremacy. Either way the lesson will be thrust upon us over and over again until it is learned, at least for those that wish to repeat the grade.

I'm puzzled as to why you seem to wish to continue with a system that produces so much vexation on your part. Do you feel that you thrive in that sort of conflict?

I think people need to think for themselves.
People like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Keith Olbermann, etc aren't necessarily bad for America - if they weren't opinionating (yes I made that word up) the news, others would take their place.
The problem is those who put complete faith in these people.
The problem is most don't want to research anything, they want 'fast food' politics. They want someone to do their thinking for them.

There is only one way to see all sides of the coin, that is by experiencing all sides of the coin.

The story was written some time ago. So long it's almost been completely forgotten it's just a story! I suppose to that end it was a good story, though I agree it could have been a better one with a happier ending.

Once the forces are set in motion on these things it is hard to avert their course.

Like a hurricane the vortex has to burn and blow itself out.

That's what is happening now.

Very good point.

Yes, I understand. I have some good idea of what's happening now and it's big with a fury. I feel like it's well burned out for me though and that chapter came to a close much earlier in this life. I'm ready to move beyond bickering, violence, cruelty, hate, class, etc. in the world.

As far as G.B. in concerned I have to deal personally with a few of his now ardent fans on a daily basis, watching them fall into the traps laid in their path. They appear to be aging visibly by the day.


It's a story and there's alot of blank pages waiting. The ending is not really the ending. We get promoted to cosmic Writer status and can participate in the universal collaborative forum.

And that my friend is why you are where you are, with the challenges that you have.

You came to do something, and well that is what you must do.

I know it seems daunting, frustrating and at times hopeless and fruitless but we all volunteered.

Rome wasn't built in a day, first things first.

We have to save and rescue as many of the slaves first.

It's a process.

S&F

Beck is an entertainer and I believe his heart is in the right place. I wish he had somewhere else to go besides Faux though. Our choices are very small in the MSM. We have to be vigilant with the info just like on the internet.

There you go friend, it is a fun job, it's important to enjoy your work and find the humor in it.

Tis an excellent job that you do!

Good thread OP! S&F for you!
Beck is only interested in two things his ratings and himself he only cares about his fellow citizens insofar as he can make money off of them if he meets someone who won't buy into his quasi-populist bull he avoids them he's like every other self-proclaimed "man of the people."

Money seems to be the reason behind so many of these things and people.

If I didn't know better I would swear it's the root of all evil!

I don't think Glenn Beck is necessarily bad for America, but I do think, as with any news source people need to independently confirm everything they hear. I had not watched his show for a few weeks.. today I tuned in for about 20 minutes and he was talking about "refounders"? not really sure what he was going on about since I wasn't sitting down with all my attention to the TV but from what I heard it doesn't sound too appealing to me I don't think were at the point(post apocalyptic?) of needing to create a new country... also I think his smartass attitude could be better...the way he talks he sounds like he's mocking everyone around him.


all that being said, I take him as entertainment more than anything. Does he talk about important things? Sure, but try not to replace one overlord for another if you know what I mean.

During my meditation it occurred to me that this is a big key in the mystery of the nature of Angels and Demons and the reason for attempting to perpetuate the cycle by rebelling. I just came out and so it hasn't really congealed yet but I sense your fear, deeply. It originates in the terror of seemingly ceasing to be, but however, this is quite impossible if you are remembered. Nothing is lost from ALL.

I don't know if I'm starting to make sense or cracking up. Honestly I think the preservation of your beloved illusion of division what our "esteemed" FOX show host is working for. I don't know if he even knows. From that perspective, perhaps he is a little too safe for America for my liking.

But, fear not. The next step is not so extreme so there's really no reason for fear. It's just a new set of experiences not possible in this manifestation instead of repeating the same old ones in a vicious cycle. I've already caught glimpses and it opens up many doors for adventure.

Ok, maybe I really have cracked. Well, that is of my will so all is good.

If he isn't crazy, then the producer and writer of his show is. Just like all news, local or national, he reads mostly from a telepropter then ad-libs the rest.

I just find it wild how the guy contradicts himself at every turn, lies and is treated like the 2nd coming of Christ. One breath he claims the US health care system is so horrible it nearly killed him, next breath it's the greatest health care system in the world! sigh

I almost never watch TV anymore. From what little I have seen of beck, I would say he is less dangerous Than someone like Jessie Jackson or Al Sharpton. As far as I know Beck has not felt the need to prefixed his name as "The Reverend Glenn Beck" to make himself more credible.
