"she's baaaaack" - feeling better; got my gruntles back

God Help Us!
Another Fake Mesiah is on the Rise

Just when you think it's safe to come out of your house we have yet another self-appointed Guru selling us his notion of "enlightenment"... don't these guys know that you cannot achieve englightenment by reading a couple of self-help books, or attending a $350 weekend seminar?

Apparently not.

Now Oprah (bless her billion dollar soul) is endorsing this weirdo named Tolle. I saw her show where she encouraged everyone to sign on and get ready for his internet seminars starting in March. Feeling a bit suspicious because of his first name I checked out his website. I was not impressed/convinced. Then about a week later a friend phoned me, all exited, and asked if I had heard of this fellow. I said I had and that it sounded too much like Landmark/EST for MY comfort, and encouraged her to check out the rickross "cult-buster" site before she got involved. I told her that we detach from our ego at our peril, that we need a certain amount of ego attachment to survive in this complex world...but I don't think she "gets it"... and she has not phoned me since then, so i surmise that she was not impressed with rickross. Well, her money, her problem, whatcha gonna do if the "sheep" want to be led to the slaughter?

Pitt Polder

lots of weird dreams last night...this morning i figured out that my discontent is boredom! I am just plain bored with everything...except...birds, sky, clouds, ocean, mountains, trees...well, nature as a whole I guess. I have lost interest in most things unless they pertain to nature...and I am not happy unless I am out in have a difficult time ahead of me as I start to sort through all my "junk" to get ready for my impending move....*sigh* - wish me luck please!

funny mood - imminent springtime?

I'm in a funny mood today, lots to do, want to Post something new but cannot think of anything is what you get...

My practicums went well (i think)...i learnt a lot, about Dental Reception and about myself. I know more than I thought I knew, also less than I thought I knew...all in all it was successful for me. I was very nervous on my first day, but people were very generous and patient.

Now I have a long list of "tasks" I have to attend to during the coming months, as I prepare to embark on another phase of my life....

The sun is shining and it is a fairly warm day...but I am wondering if anyone else saw the eclipse of the moon?

cheers for now,
