How have you all been??? It's been ages since I've been on here and thought I'd change that.

The pandemic, what a crazy thing. What are your views on masks? I don't mind wearing mine, in a way, I find it mysterious.  :rolleyes:

I've been fascinated by vampire 'lore for a while, but I've never heard the concepts of magic, Satan and vampires all brought up together like this. I'll have to think on this. Hmm.

Gaming / Re: Is it just me?

Wasn’t much into gaming but I liked Kingdom Hearts. No desire to play but it will always be in my heart. 

Maybe gaming isn’t as interesting to you because you have more going on in your life. I think that’s a good thing, actually. Spending too much time in one place, not moving, whether gaming or online in general, always leads to not exploring enough of life. But as a hobby on the side, that’s fine. Just my opinion.

Painted some picture this morning (pencil and crayons, plus a bit of Gimp) which I'm now using as a profile picture.

Just a variation on a well-known theme.

If anyone wants to see the high-resolution version: https://i.imgur.com/6of1MPW.jpg

I could take care of making the background more fully black, dunno.
I like the background just as it is, fwiw. I love the colors...and it has precision. I've never been very good at precision with sketching or drawing. Good work.

It's always raining these days. But, I like the rain, it makes everything quiet, all of a sudden. And then, the sun comes out, and it's like the storm never happened.

Working, and halfway through my day...so glad tomorrow is Friday.

I knew that show was a lie. But, in some other 'lore, I've read that to become a vampire means you would need to be bitten by one, and then you have to die your natural death, and you'd ''resurrect'' by being brought back as a vampire.

Well, no baby yet. We are tabling this because we might want to move overseas for a year or two, just because. Just to say we did it. With a baby, it might be more challenging. We are thinking of Sweden, Italy or Spain. I get mixed reactions when I share this with friends and my parents...his parents. There's a big world outside the US, and why shouldn't I explore it?

I don't want fear to keep us from doing this. That's the latest news in my world.  :)

I think a human becomes a vampire after being bitten by a vampire, but killed after becoming a vampire. I think one needs to ''feed'' on humans to ''stay alive,'' or stay energized. But, a vampire can be killed with a stake through the heart, etc.

Maybe I've watched Vampire Diaries one too many times.   :rolleyes:

I'd think consent comes into play, like with all other things. I've been fascinated by vampires and the folklore tends to be that they are selfish beings, but if 'feeding' is instinctive, would that be at all selfish?

General LHP Discussion / Re: Marriage without Paper
« on: August 12, 2019, 03:44:56 am »
I'm a ''wife'' on paper, but even if I wasn't...it wouldn't change the condition of our love. Honestly, I don't like the labels ''husband'' and ''wife.'' lol It sounds like property...''my husband.'' Making it legal on paper can feel special in an odd sort of way, in terms of...okay, I'm taking this seriously. I even want the government involved. lol

But, bands are important as symbols to me. Doesn't have to be expensive, or anything like that, but I like the symbol that my ring holds...it's like no other piece of jewelry that I own.  : )

Best wishes for a lifetime of love, X.

I find myself saying partner a lot. I'm a pretty big believer in free love, but I still say "My wife," at work just to eliminate confusion.

On rings,

We're tattooing ouroboros! I'm working on drawing them now. Never realized how hard it is to draw a ring :)

Ahhh, that sounds amazing!! (the tattoo ring idea)

Yea, I like partner...but then people might become confused. We become slaves to the social constructs, making everyone happy around us, don't we? lol  :rolleyes:

General LHP Discussion / Re: LHP and the kindness factor
« on: August 07, 2019, 08:09:33 pm »

I think there's some sort of focus on power in repression. I strongly think that when frustrations and things of the like are bound and then a person expresses in form ulterior to that they can feel a sense of empowerment that is just an illusion. Really the perception of being at the end of any kind of journey can make a person feel a little high and mighty and I've seen a lot of that in RHP. But LHP has a lot of focus on already being perfect, freedom of expression and freedom of growth. Really it's about believing that you can improve and that just knowing that means you're perfect. When I was  practicing within a RHP tradition, I sometimes felt that my journey defined me. It wasn't until I saw the world in many different ways that I started to see that I defined my journey.
This is very interesting. I never felt ''perfect'' when I explored the LHP. I felt...enlightened, perhaps. In following the RHP, and it depends on what spiritual system one follows of course, I feel like every day, I'm improving. But, the arbiter is God, for me, now.

The beauty of the journey is just that...it's a journey towards enlightenment and self...and it's perhaps, not supposed to ever end.
