  1. I "met"Tavonia Evans on FB. She's a go getter. Have you invited the speakers to join AALBC.com
  2. I haven't shared posts from the forum but I have made astrological posts. Trump not finishing his term. Did get a lot of traffic. My forum is open so it is visible to anyone on FB
  3. The biggest companies in the world sell escapism. In The Depression movies were very popular.
  4. I am in groups some have a few thousand members others have a few hundred, including an Astrology group I started. In all of those groups post are generated by a handful of people. And perhaps ten that will comment. Every so often a new person will have a one off comment. We used to be a TV nation, now it's screen world. For the majority of people life is a spectator sport.
  5. In Greek mythology, Cassandra was one of the princesses of Troy, daughter of Priam and Hecuba. According to the Myth, Cassandra was astonishingly beautiful and blessed with the gift of foreseeing the future. Her curse was that no one believed her, a fact that weighed heavily on the destruction of Troy during the Trojan War. I tell my partner to call me Sandy
  6. Yes just like Cassandra, it is hard to get people to listen or think.
  7. Whether it is entertainment, news or pornography we are seeing the public's choices. I think I am less a fan of democracy and more a fan of meritocracy. Although I haven't seen either on a consistent basis.
  8. My curiosity and desire to have answer led me to the esoteric, then divination and then mapping time. When I was a preteen I used to have my mail addressed to Argyle Strachen. Thirty years later I was working in The Argyle Oracle, a New Age shop that employed psychics. I told the owner I used to call myself Argyle, she said I precognitised where I would be in the future. I later found out that the word oracle can the person, the place or the prophetic utterance. Jupiter in Astrology is considered the greater benefic and the planet of optimism and expansion. The Moon represents feelings and the public especially women and the breasts. So it is interesting that you write hope springs eternal in the human breast. Once again you are making a multivalent comment that you are unaware of it's correspondence. I don't feel hopeful, however I do believe in Magic.
  9. In the late 80's news became infotainment. This was the birth of MTV and CNN and billion dollar financial deals.
  10. What is the percentage of proactive people in your lifetime? The fact that there is only one AALBC speaks volumes. Pun intentional.

Grimoire were books of magic, and the translation into English is Grammar. So you are on the right track. Spells rhyme because it makes them easier to rremember and it creates a connection with the Spell caster. The other component to magic is having a strong will and a focused mind. @Cynique this is why I call you an unconscious Magician. Without knowing the precepts you live by them. The other thing is that being a practitioner of magic makes you charismatic. However you strike me as someone that requires more than surface adoration.
  12. Discipline isn't popular. Hope seems more inspirational and wish seems more magical. Religion gives hope genii give wishes. I am not certain if reality is objective.
  13. I hope that people can objectively see themselves and act accordingly. If your hope is for someone else to reach a goal. Then it is something you will never attain, since you are neither the subject or the object. This subtlety of this statement is invisible to the practical or myopic thinker.
  14. Not to worry, I live on the ground floor.
  15. No because you don't feel as though you are being delusional. The difference between genius and madness is results "The difference between insanity and genius is success." – Jonathan Price December 15, 2014 Verbal Selfie. The difference between a superstition and a belief. Is like the difference between a fire extinguisher and the ocean. The ocean can cool you off, it can relax you and it can feed you. A fire extinguisher is a substitute until the fire fighters arrive. Delano Strachen October 4, 2014 The question I ask myself. How can I tell the difference between a limit and a limitation. Delano Strachen May 4, 2014 Verbal Selfie. Opportunities exist in time. It's like a train. Which is why timing is everything. So if you got rid of the physical aspect of the train, what remains is transport. Missing the train or the boat has new meaning. So following the analogy you can't miss them because you didn't buy a ticket. You are unprepared. Or you arrived late. There is a difference between opportunity and fantasy. Your choice. I have to catch some different vehicles. Delano Strachen March 30, 2015. @Mzuri thanks for asking. I was searching for the quote on Facebook to answer you. What I found was the above quotes, which span a period of almost a year. Which was a transitional period between two major shifts in my life. That period being different from what came before and what followed after it was over. So it was a question that took me 7 years to resolve. Am I okay? I don't have a one word answer. Do you prefer a short. medium or realy loooong answer? Pioneer is not delusional he doesn't believe he is right he thinks that he is right. I would say of his positions are irrational yet logical, since they have an egocentric consistency. You can also be hopeful for something that you will never attain Cynique is not delusional, she can only be mistaken. since she is not emotional invested in the truth of her statement. I would say Cynique is disinvested in Pioneer.
  16. One of the participants brought this up in a discussion group. The other members agreed. I think you are right it's an easier process to lose hope than see your delusions. Would you differentiate between hope, plans, goals and objectives? That depends on whether you are conscious they are delusions, if not it is just hope. I came across a clip about thinking. It said logical thinkers tend to be more serious. Like I can't imagine Socrates being much fun at a party. Unless they are giving out shots of hemlock.
  17. If you no longer had delusions would you also lack hope?
