Re: M2aS’ Journal

I think maybe you live in the same neck of the woods as my adult children and one of them is in the local LGBQT support choir and otherwise involved in the community if your daughter would like some contacts. I was over there last night watching their performance for Pride Week.

Re: AE's Journal Round 5 - Finding Freedom To

Maybe try to come up with some more adjectives that best describe your preferred aesthetic? For instance, I think of my masculine energy as being more juvenile, like a 12 year old Tom Sawyer looking for fun or freedom from dull convention, so even though I am a 56 years old, I frequently wear overal...

Re: A Jacob Mention

Being an 85 and thinking you’re an 80 has more chance of success in anything in life (including understanding ere) than being a 150 and thinking you’re a 180. The latter are the ones that always end up self destructing/shooting themselves in the foot I think that there is some truth to this observa...

@Alphaville: Happy that we are good buddies still. Maybe you don’t grok Jacob because you have never been in long term relationship or employment situation with extremely introverted dominant type? You have to give that type “the gift of silence.*” The good thing about forum format is that you can b...

Re: A Jacob Mention

@white belt: True, but in other lower energy/relatively higher population situations, a lot of humans were the serfs and a few humans were the lords. The word “husband” is derived from the concept of having enough independence/assets to be bound only to your own house. The word “family” originally r...

@Alphaville: Don’t leave angry. Everybody can come off in a manner they don’t intend on the internet. For instance, I was flaming mad at you for a hot minute, because I initially “heard” your comments to me on ella’s thread as variety of slut-shaming, but then I realized that it was likely miscommun...

Re: A Jacob Mention

@jacob: I am 100% on the same page with you in terms of comprehending the problem and hoping that ERE or ERE along with other spear-heading solutions can offer solution. Yet, I myself, can’t consistently bring my expenses (or rough energy flow equivalent) down to 1 Jacob or less. Maybe the general p...

Re: A Jacob Mention

In the real world, at the most micro size of business, “capitalist” micro-business owners do not plan that way. Labor is an input they purchase on the open market in competition with other employers and opportunities for potential employees just like other inputs. When you are an owner/operator or g...

Re: Methods and examples of highly developed social capital

Why I am currently planning on developing two different co-housing/work compounds with the last of my vigor. One in the city with other humans interested in permaculture and one in more rural/recreational area with my sisters. There are only 5 members of next generation and they are all adults who h...

Re: White Belt's Military Journey to FI

A lot of us have all sorts of conflicting preferences. One of the most commented upon columns in Savage Love was one where a guy revealed that he had married very thin woman for class/status signaling reasons, but he was truly sexually attracted to thick women, so was having secret affairs with them...

Re: White Belt's Military Journey to FI

The weird thing is I get the man candy even when I really don’t tit-for-tat deserve it because I currently look like Mrs. Santa Claus. When I was younger it made more sense, because I was shapely although not in shape. I think INTJ is more like fit-for-a-nerd, but there are a couple other types that...

Re: Methods and examples of highly developed social capital

@Campitor:

Maybe your perspective would be different if your primary love language was Acts of Service rather than Quality Time? For instance, I have friends with whom I can’t/don’t share intellectual conversation, but they will always make me a bowl of soup.

Re: A Journey of Mindfulness--the Remaking of Life in Midstream.

If this journal was the script for even a very long play porn movie, somebody would have slapped you on the ass while urging “Give it to me, baby!” about a bajillion posts before now. IOW, you need to focus on release to pleasure and let yourself become a bit excited about possibilities. For example...

Re: White Belt's Military Journey to FI

Re your dating dilemma, the best answer would be to try to find somebody(s) who, like you, have advanced in maturation towards inhabiting more than one table in the lunchroom. Equally important would be self-aware differentiation between seeking value vs validation in relationship. That said, you mi...

Re: Systems!- Level 6 towards 7

One important, sometimes neglected, difference between a yield and a stock is that a stock must have an appropriate storage vessel or ...
