  1. The “captcha k THING on the question page was NOT my friend this morning so I’m posting my question for the Synch workshop HERE .....

    With so many “realities in play” now , how the HELL do I attract ,find, engage with / in MY TRIBE?

    I have been in participation with  the nouns ,(person,places and things ) ACTIVELY for over a decade! ( @ least half of that linear space devoted to your & yours) 

    This includes being/ loving myself AUTHENTICALLY !

    All of which has either cast such a HUGE fucking resistance shadow, that I nearly explode on entry ! 
    which I surmise means that I’ve not only gone through that shadow of resistance, but that I’ve gotten sucked in to a world NOT compatible with my  the design I’m intended for! .

    It serves no viable expansive purpose for all those involved to keep this game alive when the ends DO NOT justify the means! Besides, even with my (more often times than not) comedic prowess , even the laughs start to sound “canned” ! 
    I need  ( & actually , am entitled to) a REASONABLE  ACCOMMODATION to waylay and dismiss this lonely anatomy to which I’m unwillingly having to participate with! ( hey I didn’t get the book  deal! Sorry 😕 )

    Now what Teal? I’m ready to commit to TRIBE!

    Oh, &  as per your “note “ to me.....I have never (nor will I ever) stop seeking!
    BlissOut.

      Stace you sound very frustrated. When I have felt this way I have found it works best to let go of all my expectations and try to step back and see the bigger picture. This has shown me where the options and opportunities are for movement or growth and helped me overcome my feelings of anger and frustration.

       

  2. Maybe it's just me. Does no one else care that the Forum is missing from the new web page.? Is it because i use Firefox and not Microsoft?

    My heart is breaking for all those folks I used to hear in the Forum asking questions of their community. I could only answer a few, but I tried to help those i could and occasionally rebuked a few who seemed lost in anger and tangled in the need to judge others so they didn't have to look at their own pain. I love all you guys. I love you too Teal.

    peace

      Have a team who responds therapeutically to trolls and abusers. Add a button that sends them to a therapeutic team and blocks them from your Forum.

    to hello

    Dear Marianne,

    What a national treasure you are! No one has asked me to reply in my own words since Obama and his kitchen cabinet. I believe we are now too late to stop the coming environmental collapse we have caused by our disdain for life and failure to be good stewards of our world. Even if that is true we can't stop trying to mediate the damage and renew the natural systems that support all life on earth.

    Our currently fractured political system began when churches began to build their own schools to teach the Moral Majority values of creationism and obedience to higher authority that was embodied by right wing preachers and right wing politicians. The political solution involves recognizing that the fears of the people on the right are real and what they see and fear is true but that the 1% and their self seeking politicians have seen an opportunity to exploit these fears to gain power and manipulate the system for personal advantage.

    We need to love the right but hate the lies, we need to speak to the peoples fears but tell the truth about what it will take to save the world, you of all the candidates can do that because you feel the pain and know that Trump has tapped into the "shadow soul" of America. We fear the uncontrollable violent uncivilized Other, whether Black or foreign they are the source of all our problems because they are the source of our fears so it's easy to point that fear into a justification for banishing them from our shores, jailing them to protect our families, targeting their children, seeing them as inhuman and killing.

    The truth is the only way to combat fear is with love! We need to revision immigrants and minorities as our salvation, their working can save social security, their labor can rebuild America, their diversity can reignite the American Dream as available to all people all races all religions world wide. Their love of the earth as shown by their worship of nature can re-green our country and our world through wise use of resources and partnering with good science to mitigate the coming environmental collapse that "Inconvenient truth" that apocalyptic vision from Silent Spring and The Day after Tomorrow and others..

    It only takes a moment to kill, it takes a lifetime to grow a man or a tree. Love encourages growth and loving change, it encourages unity in our diversity, it encourages good stewardship of resources and points to sustainable practices as a way of safeguarding our grand children's future, it points to peace and it expects we will all share in both the bounty and the pain, it points to the commonality of fears and loves we all share regardless of color, language, culture. If we focus on what we have in common instead of our differences we are all the same  We can't kill those who are the same as us, they are us! We must share with those who have less by teaching them how to have more and they can teach us how to be happier with less and appreciate having time for family, friends and fun.

    I hope this helps! I'd love to continue the conversation but i gotta go now. Love and peace...

      Hey Teal what do you think of Marianne's campaign?

  5. Maybe it's just me. Does no one else care that the Forum is missing from the new web page.? Is it because i use Firefox and not Microsoft?

    My heart is breaking for all those folks I used to hear in the Forum asking questions of their community.

      So what can we do about it? How can we revive the forum without the trolls and the abuse?

    2. (See 1 other reply to this status update)

  6. What ever happened to the Forum. I realize it had gotten superceded by Facebook and other social media pages but it still served a need for lost souls to connect with needed support and encouragement. Haters had invaded but not taken over to my mind. I'll be very disappointed if it's gone. I thought Teal set that up so no one would ever be alone.

    1. Pastor George

      Pastor George

      I guess I have to admit it served my need to be needed and to help others who are struggling with anger, depression, isolation and rejection as i did in my teens and 20's. Childhood trauma is just becoming a topic of research and the need for building Resilient communities seems to parallel Teal's work in self love and healing the hurt by embracing the pain as a way to the root cause. Authenticity anyone?

  7. I have been thinking about this for a while. This, I feel, is nothing new, just it has my attention and interest now....
    People each have a story about what affects them and how and what that then means to them personally, all the while thinking they are alone in how they feel. And so many people write about the same thing, how alone they are and what they have to face - often times, not realising that in our own, separate little worlds we all feel the same way.
    I'm thinking what keeps us separate is the shame associated with an event or way of being that the even and subsequent thought patterns has laid neatly over the top to make each of us feel what we feel and think we cannot ever convince others of what it feels like. Meantime, someone else is feeling the same feelings, going through the same angst but unable to make people realise the pain they are in.

    Then you hear Teal talk about 'Potential' that each of us has if we are able to lift our heads high enough to 'see' further down the track, that things can change but only when you make it conscious to do so; make a Choice to want to change because you now see there can be other possibilities.
    'Potential'

    I have seen Teal write about 'potential' and talk about 'potential' but it has taken some time (and the timely Blog by Teal or comment), for me to realise that because Time is a Law of this Reality and not other Realities (you have to have listened to her talking plus understand what she's meaning by concurrent Time and things happening in patterns as opposed to happening in a timely one AFTER the other sequence) to fully grasp what we all are faced with.

    What I am meaning here is that Teal has proposed the thought process to get us out of our Human Collective Dilemma. So who gets it? Who is none the wiser? I'd say most of us may see a faint glimmer of understanding only for it to quickly vanish again by overriding thoughts or our mind saying "Nah" because it's too out there and so we start concentrating on something else, more understandable.
    But my thought on this is that as a Jigsaw puzzle, we are offered what meets the criteria we impose on ourselves and presents the puzzle piece for us to realise where it fits or to discard because we do not see the fit and do not want to acknowledge it or simply have not reached the stage where we see the "Ah-ha moment".
    So like any jigsaw, someone walking along and seeing you 'puzzle' over where it goes will scan around and see the fit and tell you. Some people like help and others simply get annoyed they didn't see it and shoo the person or dismiss them entirely.

    OK, so that's ONE jigsaw puzzle. We like help or we don't. The universe still presents or correct piece whether we take it up and fit it or not; it keeps on presenting the same piece, the same piece and the same piece. Do you get it yet?

    No, OK.
    Imagine two Jigsaw puzzles going at the same time. Tip all pieces down in the same pile. Try to work out where to even start.
    Perfect answer! You have the box lid to match small pieces to - scanning the finished image to see the fit.
    Now take one finished image away. Much more difficult.
    Take the second image away and where the heck do you start!
    Most likely most of you reading this will say you'd walk away. How can you do even one puzzle if you don't know what the finished result looks like! Correct. Even if you didn't think this the body reflex of sinking in disappointment is imagined this end. An Impossible task you'd say. Better things to do you'd say.
    What if "better things" was not possible. What if this chaos of even one jigsaw with the box lid was your Life so far?

    Got your attention? Good. Lost your attention, just stop reading.
    Now how do you know where you're going if the box lid is not there in front of you? And that question is for those whose box lid vision of a future is even partly clear.
    For those that have a scrap of box lid, for those that have a faded half a lid and those that only have a corner of a box lid the going is made that much tougher, harder and more desperate. Even a part of lid can have the average person want to give up. Those are our fellow Teal Tribers or Teal FaceBook users who can't see any possibility of a future and just feel like they are dying.

    (Let's take for granted that we can all live in parallel realities and feel that we can't break through to someone else so they can see our reality rather than just their own...)

    Question: How can you possibly know how to get somewhere if you do not know where you are on a Map in relation to where you need to go?
    (that was a general question that just seemed to be appropriate to ask at this point)

    Back to 'Potential':
    When Teal talks of potential life lines she has used that there are 3 direction potentials at any given moment. The potential of one of 3 lines with a single choice means what is further along is simply a 'Potential' that it may happen or may not happen.
    So if the second line matches the first one, then the 'possibility' of what is to happen is strengthened. If all 3 life lines match then it is going to happen. And that's if those 3 potential choices match again, and again, and again. At any point, if even one of the potentials changes that decreases the strength of that future happening.
    This was discussed by Teal about seeing her own life potentials.

    Anyway, you may now react and say "But that makes for infinite possibilities and it also makes for nothing you ever choose not happening stronger than it ever actually happening!?"
    Bravo! Yes is does. And doesn't.
    We have human nature and some laws that can either help or hinder us. For example there is a human collective nature to err towards the negative. Part of that is social conditioning and part of that is a conditional response most humans have to certain things they confront. In that way, certain mass human population events can be predicted. Certain cycles of human behaviour can be foretold - this is what Future psychics and Soothsayers and witch doctors and people like Nostradamus could predict human events way into the future - some were simply based on cycles of the past and some we accurately written down and cycles observed that could be used as future predictions.
    We also have the six basic human Needs all of us possess: the need for Certainty, the need for Variety; the need for Significance; the need for Love; the need for Expansion; and the need for Contribution. Teal has written about these - she explains each Need in more detail; should be easy to find.
    'Potential' though, I now believe exists in each of us; the potential to be cruel, the potential to be kind, to love, to hate, to hold, to abandon, to be healthy, to be ill. It all depends on our life experience and where along the Path of Expansion that our Soul has decided to drop us back into a 3D Reality to experience what an Opposite of what we have already learned is like.

    To those of you that find you are desperate, know that you are like this for a reason. For those of us that see no point, that IS the point; that is what you want yourself to experience.
    But whatever excuse you make for not participating in Life and finding your Joy, that is not meant to be the end of it... the whole point is that you are meant to suffer and see obstacles - you only truly learn when you make mistakes but have the balls to carry on and keep trying; when you pick yourself up and work towards a strong desire you have - mostly based on not being where you currently are.

    The point though, is to know where you are. Some people have to know absolutely every detail and know every pitfall and have everything planned out so they cannot be tripped and fall. But I have to say here that that is not how life is meant to be lived - safely. Risks have to be taken, the unknown has to be confronted otherwise the 'potential' just falls away. The possibilities that something else could happen even better, is never given a chance.

    'Potential' lies in each one of us. Simple as that. Each Potential you can ever imagine.

    I had a client who did not ever consciously in her memory have a dad as a father figure to her growing up.
    I see my role as helping people because I know I make a better granddad than I did a father. But without being a father I would never have been a granddad.
    To this one client, this person thanked me and said it made this person feel like I was a father to them. I have never heard any higher praise. I am there for this client and this is known that I am there when needed. That means this person has gone through life to this stage wanting the very thing I can offer. Yes, in a partial sense I can be a father when the true one was an unknown - it also allows the experience of the good side of having a father to finally be experienced by this client.
    I think if this client was asked, you'd find that money can't buy this feeling; only the ability to give of yourself can allow someone the potential of experiencing something thought to be never possible. And for that alone, my work so far has been made worthwhile.

    Even the criminal murderer put away for 20 years who has finally been let out, hearing a car crash into a river and a mother call for help for her and her trapped child in the back, can be the saving of a criminal who saves two lives through a selfless act. Was he ever truly just the condemned murderer? Is he now only just a life saver?

    Potential.
    So, what could possibly be your potential given that is may be lodged in what you might call your 'past'..? What possible in-fill can you go back to then leap far ahead - by this Reality's Law of Time standards..?

    Potential lies dormant until you activate it. What creativity or Joy do you need to think of possible to activate your Potential...?

      I was recently invited to be on a community advisory committee for the Department of Corrections addressing best practices in Reentry programs to lower recidivism. I also met with a member of the Governor's staff who recruited me to help bring awareness of the documentary Resilience which addresses building resilient communities to help treat toxic stress. If you haven't seen the documentaries Paper Tigers or From Shock to Awe they are all worth watching. The first two address ACE's Adverse Childhood Experiences that can have a life long effect on children physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. The third is about PTSD sufferers finding relief through Shamanic treatment.

      Physically i continue to struggle with joint pain and limited mobility but recently changed doctors and hope to make better progress with rehabilitation soon. We continue to live in community but that community is gradually transforming into a more spiritual network of healers and helpers. I have been encouraging the very traditional United Methodist Church I attend to be more open and flexible in its outreach and they are tolerating my newest experiment called Hippie Church. It's an effort to provide a spiritual presence in the wider community by sharing food music and discussion of spiritual questions and issues without any of the structure or dogma found in the traditional church.

      I find the young people i meet to be artistic, intelligent, innovative and energetic. The folks on line are often those who've failed to find support in their physical surroundings and are clearly needy but don't forget we were young and impatient, angry, independent, rebellious in our day and we turned out okay, mostly.

      Be Blessed, safe, sane, and sober, enjoy the ride.

      Hi Rob, good to hear from you here. Yes, guilt and shame are big hurdles for all of us. They are a great source of relapse within the addiction community and a great source of pain for us all but if we use them as a path to find the root cause of the pain then we can begin to realize the potential we all possess and reach out to each other in shared suffering to hold each other up, forgive ourselves and share the forgiveness, heal and reveal that potential of all that we can be as spiritual beings temporarily bound by time in this reality but able to travel into other dimensions of timeless existence. Join me in this journey of exploration and together we will create a new reality, a new dimension of humanity. Hold on and enjoy the ride, wheeeee!
