Update Update

It has been a while since i have posted.
While i do not feel as stronmg, energetic, or physically together as i did last November, i have regained much of what i lost during the Winter and "Spring (including some of the weight).  I have resumed most of ,my normal activities except the homeless shelter gig which i should resume later this month.

Having learned that two cannot live as cheaply as one, i find that money is literally burniing holes in my pockets   I have started giving it away at a higher and faster rate.  Recipients  of my "largesse" have been my favorite poetry website, The Monastery of St Gertrude. Doctors Without Borders, The Southern Poverty Law Center, Heifer  International, and The Catholic Worker neewspaper.  I am scouting other charities and progressive groups.

My perspective on Al Alon is becoming more "realistic" (ii.e. delusional) as i become more deeplty involved, but i am still convinced that it will continue to meet my spiritual and emotional needs.

Love, peace, and joy to all.

It is good to hear from you sir, and to know that you've regained some of yourself (and your weight) since last Fall. Thank you for your time, and the blessing of you sharing who you are.

Namaste.
Michael

Good to hear your voice in here, Bob. And I bet those charities and organizations are happy that "money is burning holes" in your pocket and that you get rid of what you don't really need. ;-)
great stuff.
Blessings and love
all-ways

Thank you so very much for your words from your journey.

If you feel like telling more about the "more realistic/delusional" I would love to read it.

O.K. I need to do it for my own clarification, anyway.
But i need to ruminate about it a bit, to compose both my argument and myself. It starts with my acceptance of non-duality as a basic frame of reference, my paramount reality, so to speak. If the material world (at least as presently constituted) is an illusion. how should i behave "in" it; what is my responsibility toward it? By continuing to pretend it is reality, i merely u
uphold and contribute to the myths that keep it functioning as it is.

What a wonderful way to be led to share your resources.

I'll admit i am still recovering from last November, and i haven't been sick. I'm glad you are feeling your strength return.
