      Thats what it seems like, janesix. Thats what it seems like. I have actually had a visualization of myself splitting off from The Force.
      Now, its time (for me) to go back to The Force. And I still don't really want to. Isn't that weird? with all this suffering and stress, I still just want to stay as "I" am. And that unwillingness is apparently the major sin.
      Where is my actual salvation? Jesus and Krishna say love God. Love Spirit. How can we love what we do not perceive? How can we love what we only get glimpses of now and then?
      How can we keep focused on Spirit, when we are enjoying ego and matter?
      Oh, the dilemma.

        "I have actually had a visualization of myself splitting off from The Force. "

        So have I.

        I am in the same dilemma. I want to keep this identity, yet I am still drawn to the spiritual. I don't know why, but I've been dealing with this a lot lately.

    I used to work in labs such as these, though not bio. The memory of that, plus the rockin music starting at minute 4-forward is why this link, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7MSNEbl-hA

  10. paradigm search profile image59
    paradigm searchposted 2 years ago

    The music starts at 4 minutes, after that you are on your own.

    Upon further thought, there may be a misunderstanding.

    My enthusiasm was about the lab sequence with the music, as for the movie; I loved that, too. See Netflix or whatever.

                I think it could be playing when I look at the ants. 
                Contemplated them for years.   
                2014 was a bumper year.
                Killed many.

                  Kathryn L Hillposted 2 years agoin reply to this

                  Here's what to do:
                  Scouts pass along pheromones/signals in leading the army/troops of ants. You can create a 'mountain range" of flour mixed with baking soda, (no water,) in order to block their trails and pathways. If the troops manage to forge through one of your mountain ranges, just build it back up. These mountain ranges confuse the transfer of pheromones/signals which are sent out by the scouts and picked up by the troops.

                  For the ants, no signals, no following.

                  For us, no killing, no guilt. smile

                  What is your method for defeating little armies of single file-ers, C.O.?

                    colorfuloneposted 2 years agoin reply to this

                    I may need to remember that defensive strategy of "flour mixed with baking soda" to build mountain ranges.  I am anti-invasive ants unless I need to eat them to survive.  smile

    Tip 2: Mix powder cleanser (Comet, etc.) with vinegar. Place mixture in paths of invading single-file troops.

    Whatever works!
    (Its how we need to treat ISIS. Someone needs to stack some odds against them!
    Why should they be cut some slack or given an advantage?
    Same with Iran.)

      What other words of wisdom did your boy say?
    I'll be listening again.

    In answering the question, what is the meaning of our lives?
    He said,  "The meaning of YOUR life is what you make it … what you want your life to be.
    No one can decide what you will do,
    except you!"

    Has his dad been yakking to him or is he channeling God?
    Either way:

    Well, good!
