Dating yourself and those who recognize the reference. Conference could use a technological equivalent of the going.

Not for long. Weather is gorgeous and I have some outdoor chores to catch up on. But thanks for the recognition.

That could have been written by a talkmaker algorithm. Ballard, I meant. -10 for boring.

Re: Mushrooms and Mysteries

I forgot I have a conflict, so won't be making the solstice celebration either.

Re: Keeping up with Trump

It will certainly be a test of our republic. Literacy regarding basic civics in our country is abysmal, so it is not too hard to convince certain people to turn to violence. However, I think I would rather see Trump face charges that are appropriate and provable than have justice denied out of fear....

Re: Mushrooms and Mysteries

So maybe I would get more out of the solstice celebration. Tomorrow's weather is supposed to be beautiful so the church of the big blue dome might be better. I don't have much use for new age woo woo.

Hagoth, I think you're on the program for TDA Sunday. It's that correct? I can probably make it.

Re: Resignation Poll

It isn’t my mama that I don’t want to make cry, but my spouse. Edited to add that I marked that I have no plans to resign, because even if my sweetheart goes first, he asked me not to because that would wipe out our sealing. I promised him that I wouldn’t and I won’t. That's where I'm at. I won't d...

Re: Elder Kevin Pearson

This guy has been on my "tool" radar for well over a decade now. He was one of two visiting Seventies at our Stake Conference over ten years ago when my son was still planning on a mission. Elder Tool told a story from the pulpit about how at a mission meeting of some kind he asked a young elder to ...

Re: Adult Saturday Night Stake Conference "date"

The two times I've been to the Saturday evening SC sessions were the two most awful church meetings I ever attended. It seems like only the most dedicated attend that session and the visiting GA knows that and plays to that crowd. The last time I attended one of these, and I do mean last time, one w...

Re: Mushrooms and Mysteries

I noticed today that TDA has a meeting planned this Sunday that I might attend.

ETA: the info on the meetup is in the newsletter email they send when you join.

Re: Holotropic Breathwork

I knew I was asking you to describe the indescribable, but I think you did an admiral job of it. Thank you. This adds another tool to the spiritual toolkit that i will continue to use (using the word "spiritual" in a way that has nothing to do with unseen beings, in case Fluff reads this). But it a...

Re: Renlund story makes me mad

The example he gave that quoted the actual words of the Branch President is telling. Something about how the blessing could actually heal the person. I suspect the reason the "official wording" is so important is that the brethren have carefully removed any words that imply a promise of healing. Don...

Re: Husband accepted Primary calling behind my back!

The thing I am most attuned to is just how offensive it is to have other fallible human beings believe they can determine another's worthiness. That one is a hot button for me and was the basis for my last church-inspired serious disagreement with my wife. Let's see, you told primary children the tr...

Re: Holotropic Breathwork

Yes I do. I just joined the Divine Assembly, so that's a step toward taking the sacrament. Next step is figuring out how to tell DW without freaking her out. I was talking about How to Change Your Mind on Netflix with my kids on Sunday. I think I will find ways to work it into conversations more oft...

Re: Holotropic Breathwork

I just did your recording. This was my third time. I also tried two of the other recordings. I like yours the best. Your voice is very soothing, and the sound mixing sounds professional. I'm curious what the experience is like for you. This was as deep of a meditative state as I have experienced. Th...
