Quite a lot of memories here and posts from people now not here or have found a different identity to explore. it all brings back good memories though. Even when the presence of friends from the past is gone... we still can remember the unique spiritual and human vibration they gave to our lives. I feel I was just woke up to be reminded of that and give thanks for all the wonderful moments I had with others. Somehow I have this faith that we will meet again if not in this present life sometime in the great beyond and sometimes people do come back into our lives in the present. We can be very grateful for such support from such spiritual friends!

Namaste friend thanks for summing this up. There is much to read here. I hope all is well with you and want you to know if you have any way to get up here and back to see Amma this fall you are welcome to stay here and I can get you back and forth and provide a place for you to stay. Perhaps someday we will still be destined to meet. That would be nice. My offer extends to other friends here as well.

From the unity of religious ideals, food for thought

Quote
WHAT IS THE Message? Where does it come from? How is it received by the souls who deliver it? These questions often arise in enquiring minds. And the answer is that the message is like rain, and rain falls where it is needed and when it is needed. But does the rain come from above? It seems to come from above, but it first rises from below. As the vapors rise first from the sea and turn into clouds, so every aspect of knowledge gained by all beings rises upwards like vapor, forming into clouds as ideas, and again falling from above like rain. There are very many names for the seas, rivers, and streams, but they all contain water. And there are various names for religions, but they all contain the wisdom given at different times in different ways. There is lightning, there is thunder, and the rain falls; and there are wars and disasters before the message comes. Storms are very often warnings of what is to follow, and the different kinds of battles and revolutions are often warnings before the coming of peace.

Yum! This beautiful fruit is not only bright in color but packs a powerful punch both in flavor and nutrition profile.
First, look at this thing
How cool!

If you want a meditative experience with your food, try peeling apart a pomegranate.

On its own it is already tangy and flavorful- tonight I squeezed lime over the arils and this was like a very, very sour candy! Halloween treat y'all? Cheesy

The summary,
Quote
Pomegranates are one of the healthiest foods on the planet, packed with nutrients and powerful plant compounds.

They have wide-ranging benefits and may help reduce your risk of various serious illnesses, including heart disease, cancer, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.

What’s more, they may boost your memory and exercise performance.

The notion that someone other than the Saudi regime sanctioned this killing is frankly ridiculous," said Aaron David Miller, director of the Middle East program at the Woodrow Wilson Center, a Washington think tank.
Others said Trump was offering appeasement and credence to a ruthless regime.
“It’s an unambiguous green light to the world's despots & dictators that they can exact justice however they see fit, wherever they see fit," tweeted Ned Price, a former CIA analyst who left the agency in 2017 to protest what he called the Trump administration's "disregard" for the U.S. intelligence community.
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said if the Saudis offer that as an explanation, it would not fly with members of Congress.
“What kind of interrogation puts the person at risk for being murdered?" Shaheen told USA TODAY. "That is just not credible to suggest that that’s an answer to what happened here.”
In a series of tweets on Monday, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., suggested Trump was reluctant to press the Saudi’s on the missing journalist because of his longstanding business relationship with the Saudis before he entered the White House.
“Trump giving Saudis a pass on Khashoggi murder—maybe because he continues to benefit from Saudi rentals, hotel bookings & other payments to the Trump Org?” tweeted Blumenthal, who recounted Trump’s remarks during the presidential campaign about how much he liked doing business with Saudi Arabia.
“Saudi Arabia, I get along with all of them. They buy apartments from me. They spend $40 million, $50 million. Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much,” said in 2015 at Trump Tower.

I was reading up on "Insight Meditation" yesterday and found this,

"

SUSTAINING ATTENTION -- SITTING

Time and Place

Focusing the mind on the body can be readily accomplished while sitting. You need to find a time and a place which affords you calm and freedom from disturbance. Reassuring darkness show me your hidden forest where I can set and only be with you when all else seems to have no comfort.

A quiet room with not much in it to distract the mind is ideal; a setting with light and space has a brightening and clearing effect, while a cluttered and gloomy room has just the opposite. Timing is also important, particularly as most people's days are quite structured with routines. It is not especially productive to meditate when you have something else to do, or when you're pressed for time. It's better to set aside a period -- say, in the early morning or in the evening after work -- when you can really give your full attention to the practice. Begin with fifteen minutes or so. Practice sincerely with the limitations of time and available energy, and avoid becoming mechanical about the routine. Meditation practice, supported by genuine willingness to investigate and make peace with oneself, will develop naturally in terms of duration and skill.

I have an empty room with white walls and when the sun rises the light that peeps through the partial opened blinds is quite comforting. Alternatively, I've found meditating in complete darkness at 3AM to be a little scary. I've had wonderful meditations at this time though as well... So I wonder, does lighting affect our meditation?

The stillness and the darkness of nite can sometimes feel like my only friend. It is a welcome visitor when it wakens me to its solitude and takes me into its deep dark arms and presence.

I have come to wave my cape to break the spell of grunge and gothic despair.

This song is about the Aras Mountains that were taken away from Armenia in the genocide. The mountains are said to be were Noah's Ark set sail.

Liar!
Killer!
Demon!
Back to the River Aras

Someone's blank stare deemed it warfare

Liar!

Can you hear the Holy Mountains?

Someone's mouth said, "Paint them all red."

Liar!

They have all returned, resting on the mountain side
We have learned that you have no
They have returned resting on the mountain side
We have learned that you have no

Sodomizer!
Back to the River Aras
They have returned, resting on the mountain side
We have learned that you have no
Honor!
Murderer!
Sodomizer!
Back to the River Aras
Freedom
