Twelve hours ago, Hotei expressed it eloquently. Eloquent in Spirit. This evening I will try and post the quote.

You have done well. I knew you would come through helping me with this simple message. That is why I called for you at the opening of the “other” thread. 
great respect

When we stop othering ourselves, we stop othering others.

 

Because we ourselves and others are parts of...

 

The TAO as ONE?

Beautiful song Lima, it so Rumiesque ala Cat Stevens. Originally, it is set to a Scottish Gaelic tune. words by Eleanor Farjeon. the song is often sung in children's services and at funerals; which is quite interesting imo

 

In 2019, I learned of the speed of dark. And I pondered upon: "The light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not."

 

It was a year where I won many battles, stayed two steps ahead of adversaries, avoided snares. traps, pitfalls, had spectral allies, had supernatural allies, and lost everything.

'others' lost more than that.

 I came to new understandings, 

I had a song that helped me through that year, I drew comfort and strength from it (Your song video opens with a house in background, same as the one I share)

Spoiler

 

 

The song asks deep profound questions:

Is it Dark already?

How light is a light?

Who is the Alpha?

 

Spoiler

 One thing I know for certain, ooh I'm pretty sure: It ain't over, I'm not done.

Technically against the rules, but they didn't count the entire group but participants of separate seminars. So far, 104 documented covid infections. 

 

Still counting...

Good morning Nun,

 

Thank you for the lightness of questioning #WeThe15

 

6 : 40  ?  ~ if you are referring to  breakfast ~ I will have some cereal

 

 

8 : 35    ? ~ if you are referring to dinner I may opt for a pizza

 

a pie chart showing 15% of  'othering '  ?

 #WeThe 15 is a global human rights movement which aims to make persons with disabilities visible as 1.2 billion, or 15%, of the world's population.

I will not let my mind bothers me about 'othering' others.

 

Tomorrow is another new beginning. Why bother?

The Dangers of "Othering"

 

 

What are some of such dangers in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic?

Those that see clearly and/or think clearly are surely disheartened, shocked, appalled at the dynamic trend rearing its head, the ugliest monster of all--othering.

No ~ it is very bright.

 

How light is a light?

When it is a heavyweight.

 

Who is the Alpha?

Delta.

 

Are there "other" questions?

I will have to disagree with at least one of the answers you provided.

I do thank you for participating on these couple or three threads I started.

You certainly provide thoughtful and thought provoking replies.

 

Who is the Alpha ?
 It is not Delta. I’ve had my eye on this thing, whatever it is, since February 2019. There is a much graver one biding it’s time, I hate to say. Waiting.

Alpha is not the virus or any of the variations.

 

it will probably be tomorrow afternoon before I will return to these threads and the forum.

Apologies in advance for redundancy, sometimes redundancy is required.

February 2019 is pre-pandemic.

 

So it is "other" than COVID-19? 

 

It is graver than the pandemic?

 

So what is this thing?

 

This thread warns of the dangers of "othering"...

 

So that thing must be part of...

To include...

I am not waiting for whatever that thing is.

 

I have no time.

 

I am getting out.

Whatever it is, no matter what comes down the pike,

we all need to stick together and not turn against one another.
