No, I do agree with you (that makes a change!!) about dark thoughts and lighter thoughts. Bon chance!! :-))

Bienaimee

It would be more accurate to say, "No thoughts are neutral. All thoughts create in the material world according to their nature." That's how you can recognize them. Lighter thoughts~ higher vibration thus a lighter, more joyful life. Darker thoughts~ lower vibrational, darker creations such as illness and dis ~ ease with living. :O!!!
Of course, I realize your pragmatic mind will fight you on this! C'est la vie! :) LOL!!!

Still trying to make it 3 dimensional, huh!?! There is a spiritual reason behind everything that happens in the material world!!! But that's okay! You don't have to believe me, pragmatic as you are!!! :)

Actually it was, probably, from a salad that was washed in tainted water. It was a cruise up the Nile and aboard that ship there were no issues, but we had a meal and cruise in Cairo on a different vessel and that's when I think it happened.

Bienaimee

See what I mean! I knew you would have a reason for it!
Even I know not to drink the water!!!! LOL!

parrotman22

No, it was drinking unsafe water and I had been so careful during the rest of my time there!!

Bienaimee

You are right about the scene! ;-))

Gastric problems metaphysically mean that you cannot digest/stomach something~ it was probably too spiritual a place for you!!! LOL!!!

(I know, you are going to say it was something you ate. Again, there are no accidents! Everything happens for a reason!)

parrotman22

BTW this scene should go with a massage!

I've heard that about Orion and the pyramids. I did go to the Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza but I was taken violently ill while I was there . Gastric problems - best not to go into too much detail!! :-((. My favourite pyramid is the one at Sakarra (sp) an earlier stepped pyramid

I just looked out the window and saw Orion! :) I was reading about Alnilam since your comment of wishing on it as a child had called my attention to it. The fact that it is blue makes it very spiritual. But more than that, it is the star that you go to when you go through the 11:11 Gateway in Ascension, which I did not know, but I needed to know that! :) That is why you were drawn to it as a child. It IS HOME!!!! Orion's Belt aligns perfectly with the 3 pyramids of Giza even to the detail that they (the stars and the pyramids) are not in a straight line! Did you know that? Did you see those pyramids when you were on your balloon ride in Egypt? The 3 stars of Orion's Belt hold our universe in place. I could not believe I was reading all of this because it all has to do with a book that I am studying right now, The Book of Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch (not an easy read for the faint hearted! LOL!!! ) There are no accidents ~ I was supposed to hear that from you!

LOL! I guess I just wanted to see if I could do it. And I could. It was just not my preference to finish it. AND . . . I knew THAT would surprise you!!!!! :-) LOL!!!!!!!!

parrotman22

I don't blame you for not finishing, Liza. As a matter of fact I'm surprised that you started!! LOL

Well, John. . . I just wanted you to know that I got half way through your "From the dark side. . ." (the skull in the aqua water) just to do it. It is a bit of a paradox as blue green is very healing and the skull, well, death, I suppose, for the worldly.
Metaphysically a skull represents Golgotha (the place of the skull) where one goes to deny one's personality in favor (favour - LOL!) of spirituality and unity. So not so scary when seen from an enlightened perspective. I just didn't care for the visual as it was forming in the puzzle and my psyche and therefore, let it go. That is to say I didn't finish it! I prefer the feeling that I get from this puzzle! Have a peaceful, beautiful, tranquil day!

parrotman22

That's a shame, Katy. What type of things do you paint? Enjoy your R&R.

Thanks for the good wishes John but unfortunately I didn't make any "bob" yesterday - lower case or upper case. Especially enjoying the tranquility of your "tranquility" today. I'm going to take the vision as I go to horizontal mode again now.

parrotman22

Thanks for that nice comment, gemstone.

gemstone

Lovely.

parrotman22

Oh, that was much more of an op. Katy! You may appreciate the photo of "the beastly thing" when you are further away from the associated pain of it.

You are being "saucy" now with your "high excitement value"! I'm sure I cannot imagine what you mean!!lol

That's why we don't get shadows here - no sun!! 'Orrible.

I enjoyed batik work when I was at college. I sometimes do batik jigs but they never look as good as the real thing. Hope you make a few "bob" tomorrow. That's slang for shilling!!

Thanks John, you gave me some tugs to play with. Beautiful pictures.

No, my Twisted Cyster was internal and took a few days stay in the hospital but will be fine now and I'm really looking forward to getting back to a more comfortable and productive life. My doctor gave me a picture of it but it isn't really very photogenic.

You never lose creativity - you just forget to let it out. I've drawn and painted since I was very young - and even won some awards - but now, I don't take any lessons because I just want to develop and let out my own visions. Even though I get incredibly frustrated, nothing is so exciting as creating something (well, maybe one or two other things also have a high excitement value)

Amazing the differences in our "common" language. And your light switches are reversed - and your driving direction is just irrational - to a rational, North American mind.

Now it's time for another rest period and then I think I'm going to just do a little more to a couple of canvasses I have in a Show/Sale tomorrow.

I'm keeping the vision of this "tranquility" in my soul. Thanks
Yes, the "shadow" is me in sunshine. Can't have shadows without the sun.

parrotman22

i notice the shadow in your logo - you? i like your stubborn comment, katy. very funny! i share many of your traits, too. i used to be very creative when i was younger. i could/should have gone to art college but didn't.

it's a shame you can't spell humour properly!

i'm assuming the cyst was, basically, external, what a relief for you to "get rid"!

it sounds as if your friend has a creative mind with the "twisted cyster"! very clever and, yes, i like the group a lot.

light and dark - that;s me. it's good to have your comments again. i thought that i had gone deaf!!lol

John, I'm NOT a Gemini - therefore I have no dark side ;))))). Amazing though how many Geminis are (or have been) in my life - both family and close friends. Perhaps it's because I would have been among your group but was born three weeks early. I missed the Dark Side - except for my Shadow. I'm curious, creative, independent, determined, and I laugh from the humor that is such an intrinsic part of life and I laugh just for the joys and pleasures of being. I also cry at the horrors that humanity causes itself and the world. (notice I used the term "determined" rather than the perjorative "stubborn" - I am NOT stubborn and I will never, never change my mind about that) - more humor???

Thanks for the "welcome back" Yes, I'm sort of "good to go" now, but will be much, much better in six weeks or so. Hope this doesn't make you quesy but I had a grapefruit sized cyst removed from my abdomen - and it had evidently become twisted which was causing all the pain. So it's gone now. A friend thought I should wear a t-shirt that says "I survived the Twisted Cyster". (do you know the musical group - Twisted Sister?) Anyway, "Twisted Cyster" is such a groan that it really made me laugh - which isn't very comfortable physically yet but is so good for the spirit.

And John, I see another puzzle today that must have come from your dark side - not visually "dark" but cruel to solve. Show me a tug boat - please. (and stories to go with it) Katy

parrotman22

welcome back, katy. i hope all went well and you feel "good to go"!

your dark side or mine?!! good to hear from you again.

mpilnadyful

This is sooooo lovely. I'm ready for this pleasure now. But is the "Dark Side" watching?
