It's not that I am trying to force anything, I really do have a great time.
If you're having fun then do it I don't regret any of the dating (or sex - even the bad sex ) I had before I got married. Some people do and for them the answer would be different. But if you're having fun, go with it

Still need those good vibes this way guys. I haven't been able to keep up with the thread since life has been "coming at me". DS has now caught my virus. He seems to be getting over it quicker than I did. We have a few other issues going on that I won't get into, and I'm sure I'll get them all sorted out, but I just wanted to pop on and say hi.

Kerry, you are welcome to post your situations on the discussion yahoogroup. We have several mamas who have adopted children. I believe several with RAD. The fundamentals apply even in adversarial relationships or challenging ones. We'd be glad to help. Take what works, leave the rest, of course.

I have also manifested a dis-ease in my body temple ( Michael Beckwith), so I'm struggling with concentrating, between bathroom trips.

The little man ( -not little at all, that's what makes it funny) thinks that it might be ecoli from all the fresh vegetables I eat!

Why learn about the LOA and try to manifest things and attitudes? I feel like this : when I hear this.
Because the Law of Attraction expands what we focus on. So, I choose to focus on *joy*, and joy expands. It is merely a conscious choice, no "shoulds" attached.

Ooooo, see that resonates with me. But then that goes with my concerns on being "reckless" doesn't it? I sometimes do things quickly but I'd say mostly I "build up energy". The problem is that sometimes I get stuck in the "building up energy" part I guess.
IMO, "stuck" is an externally generated judgment. Not an internally motivated one. When we believe that we are exactly where we need to be, there is no "stuck", because we have the choice to manifest something else. See? "Stuck" is not about me, it is about *other's judgment* of me and where I am.



Quote:
not because I want to change them, but because I'm figuring out what I do and do not want in life.
Focusing on what you *don't want* brings... WHAT YOU DON'T WANT!

Quote:
In another example, I talk to the women on this list about things they are doing. On the one hand you could say that's them, not me and it doesn't matter to my life, but on the other hand, I am being inspired by them to figure out what I want to do and be so it does matter to me.
Choice where to spend our energy: WHAT WE DO WANT!

Quote:
I don't think it's my business changing other people but I do think I can be inspired by others. "Inspired" meaning either inspired to emulate them or inspired to do things differently.
Yep, we can be *inspired* to expand joy in our own life because joy attracts joy. And happiness is a choice. (There is an empowering book by this title: http://www.amazon.com/Happiness-Choi.../dp/0449907996)

Quote:
That's why I thought of "reckless action". I don't know if they are having bad results because they are "reckless" or because they aren't grateful, or because they focus too much on money or what. I just know I don't want to follow that path and I'd like to learn from them what not to do if I can. Does that make sense to anyone?
I have tried that road about figuring out what everyone is doing and what I don't like about it. It doesn't feel warm and fuzzy, for anyone.




Quote:
Ooooo, I got warm fuzzies there
Me too. Right here, focused on expanding joy in my own life!

Oh, you are too funny!!

Taradactyl: I am so happy that your whole family is back on their feet and feeling well, and you are back to a state of buzz buzz buzz!!

Did it work? LOL Seriously, just keep going up one level at a time, and take care of yourself!!

I do think that if it turns into more than just *dating* then you'd be stopping the process of finding the right one.

So. . if you think there's potential, I mean *really feeeel it* then continue dating the person. If you don't, then move on to the next.

You'll know. If there is a question like, maaaybe he's okay, or maaaybe he'd be the right one, cut him off now. There are no *maybes* when you've found the right one.
:

Devon, I would say, if it genuinely makes you feel good, then date them - whatever the reason. If you have a nagging "I shouldn't be here right now" feeling, well, intuition rules!

On other matters...can I just say

:

I carried on clearing that bureau (the one where my scarf drawer offered up $66.75), and I found $5 on the top underneath some mail. Then I got to the bags of receipts that I'd stuffed there when my pocketbook got too stuffed...I mean the ones from about 2005, and the other bag from about 2003...and I found a money order from American Express (which I have no recollection of them ever sending me) for


$250!!!

I mean....it's really starting!! I know technically it was there already, apparently, but I wasn't open to it, apparently. And now I am! I know it's just the beginning!

Wow! Tara, I had goosebumps the whole time I was reading your forward! It captures the mystery, the awe, and the gratitude that the messages inspire. Just wow!!


Wow again!!

Do you all think I need to use multi-quote, or what?!

But, I like this question too. It helped me to realize that on many things I just SIGH and think 'ok, what am I going to do with this?'. And that item certainly isn't bringing joy or smiles. I love these tools of purging, or rather, attracting joy into our home!

Hey, I see a coincidence?!?!, when you are away from this thread and us, your vibe goes down. Perhaps, you need to hang out with us more. ::

I was struck by a long quote of Abraham-Hicks on procrastination in the 30 day plan pdf somebody posted about. They say that procrastination is not at all a bad thing, it indicates that the timing is not yet right. And that there is no need to act unless it is inspired action--if it doesn't feel good, don't do it. Don't worry about the how--the universe will take care of that and that may include moving you to action.

I love how absolute they are about it! I think in practice it translates into something interesting. If I actually desire to do something, then the first step is to sit down, diminish my resistance and get in the zone of my desire. Rather than trying to force my way through resistance which can sometimes feed into the negativity. But I totally think that individual situations vary; some manifestations are right on the border so that pushing through resistance isn't that hard and brings them in quicker. Etc...

For us, there were plenty of maybes, and we even tried to give up on it... repeatedly. But our bond stayed just as strong no matter what happened. Life got a lot easier when we finally accepted it!

Just curious . . . was it a *maybe* right off the bat, or did you *know*?

Every single moment in your life has played a part in getting you where you are, and will continue to play a part in getting you where you're going. You are where you are, and where you are is just fine! Being content and appreciative of where you are now doesn't preclude joyous anticipation of where you are going tomorrow! When you no longer want to grow or add on to your experience, you're dead.

Quote:
The reason I'm looking at them is not because I want to change them, but because I'm figuring out what I do and do not want in life. The way my father and BIL manage their financial lives is an example to me of what I do not want so I take note of the things they do that lead them to the outcomes I don't want to have.
Looking at someone else's situation and finding a lesson in contrast so you more clearly know what you don't want is great! But putting energy into figuring out the how's and why's and what-for's isn't likely to serve you too well. Even making all the exact same choices isn't going to put you in the same place as another, so why bother trying to figure that out? Unless, of course, it brings you joy or inspiration to do so, in which case I think it a worthy endeavour.

WOW! That's awesome!!!

Love the comments on procrastination! I have some to say on that as well, but will have to come back to it in a moment.

I can't believe there were about 70 new posts while I was out this morning!!!
