Random quote: "where are you going to fixate your attention? where are you going to obsess? are you going to obsess on an illusion with your brothers and sisters? are you going to make their opinion about you... God to you? or are you going to switch your fixation to God..... whose Voice is in you...... whose Voice IS you. are you going to begin to fixate on the Place of Excellence in you that is the Excellent You that you are...... and embody that..... and let the chips fall where they may." ~ Raj

Dear Amena,

The words you have expressed here hold the greatest of truth for me. If I recall correctly, I was reading them under a thread in which I was feeling attacked by them. As I went through the week I was inspired to believe they were not meant to attack, but rather to respond to another post of mine where we were posting on the subject of the power of thought. In either case, I choose for joy. And if that means not posting or not visiting TGP as often, because of my personal feelings of reading attack into contrary postings of authors other than Jesus or Raj, then that is what I need to do.

My life is busy with family life and job responsibilities, in addition I am in the process of rewriting some old manuscripts. I don't have much time to put into  writing eloquent posts and therefore may come across as blunt. I came/come here to fellowship, to read and present different perspectives on subjects I am interested in, and to once in a while find nuggets of golden thought from various written words. I don't like contention, and prefer to avoid it like I would avoid cow dung on the road, but sometimes I do step in it when I am not paying attention and have to cleanse myself before continuing, or hope it wears itself off before I get to where I am going.

Some people here, including you, Dear Amena, seem to carry an aura of respect and authority on the board. I have no desire to get on your bad side, or anyone else's because of my posts. At one point last week I felt like my words were being twisted and softly fed back to me, and I became very defensive, to say the least, preferring to withdraw from the subject. If it was while in this defensive state of mind, that I took your words to be anything other than an expression of your opinion on the power of thought, I appologize.

Peace to you,
