Sitting quietly seems the best, and in a way that's "processing" too.

Got married to a super exotically beautiful woman back in March of last year. She is from Guyana. Was a long distance relationship for a total of just two months under 3 years. Finally have her here with me for a month now. Life's great!

Oh, as for Guyana, it is more than Jim Jones. VERY interesting country. It's Africa and India without going as far as those two land masses. It is for the intrepid type and those who love wide opened spaces, deep jungles, waterfalls, massive rivers and such,

So, when I hear bits and pieces about my brother's process over the last few days, I understand it in that framework. It has been a labor of love, for everyone there, I'm sure.
I say it was a birth and I don't care if you believe me, he got birthed into a big warm light of love.


Thas what I really believe, so there!

I pretty much believe that when people die, they suddenly remember who they were before they were on this Earth and the Lord comes up and says,'' Do you understand now?''


Like we were sent down here just to gain a perspective, that's all.

Heaven, to me, is others loving (loving = no judging) you until you can forgive yourself. It's funny, I may be in it right now, I have a normal crazy family, but just as I think I will be ok I do something stupid again.

yes, I agree with that last line. We are the universe having a human experience.

It's like walking out into a warm rain when you see isn't it. My shift happened while starring at the periodic table and running the standard model, chemistry, and bio (the cell) through my head. Oh my god ... OMFG ... that's the image. Its ME!!!! That's our looking glass.

That's when I understood it can't be any other way, there must be "something". All lines of logic start there, at the P.T.. It is incomplete but it's all we have. And it's as real as it gets.

I find you and trout so amazing because everything you guys say can be directly linked to the P.T. peroid, for me ...lol
