Hi Donald: It's a pleasure to "meet" you. Thank you for accepting my friend request. I am just getting ready to go to your web page, and I have read your "About Me" post, which I find most interesting and sort of exotic. I am a poet/writer, with one book of poems published, and another almost finished. I am also writing a memoir, and a book of very different non-fiction. I am a wife, mother, and grand-mother to a 15 and a half month old little girl, who has stolen my heart. *smiling* She is a delight. I have 2 children, a daughter who is 27, and a son who is 26. I am 56. I have been married for 19 years, and we have been together for over 23 years now. I like to read, write, and I love good music. I also love to dance. It makes my body and soul feel good. That's enough about me. Thanks again, and I wish you the best, and hope to hear from you soon.

If you are living with lupus, you are no longer "living." You are waiting. Waiting to recover from one flare or for your next one to begin.

Be Positive To Be Creative

Negative attitude I strongly condemn
As it brings hope to the bottom
Moults confidence like an autumn
And makes heart a melancholy-drum
Our potential becomes infinite
If we strongly hope every minute
Will-power is mind’s main kit
Which makes success definite
Free the mind of cowardice-mask
With great care study the task
Will efforts suffice? Every day ask
With complacency never bask
When the task to achieve is mammoth
The road to reach it can never be smooth
Stones will laugh with sharp teeth
Determination alone can close each mouth
With rules of hard-work have strict compliance
Use brain which is the very best appliance
Ever develop with confidence an alliance
In goals never at all make any variance
Compete, compete, and compete
Ever with a true winning spirit
Allow not courage to split
The task, we will surely complete
Happiness gives a shining skin
Hard-work powers the bone within
Hope supplies courage-vitamin
Thought and soul prayers pin
If thoughts run helter-skelter
Pray to God to provide shelter
Offer tears on the holy altar
Mind will alter as prayers filter
Chewing the past is a postmortem
Which will spoil your AM and PM
Instead pray through a hymn
And find in hard-work asylum
Let him be Newton, Milton, Dalton or Washington
For all of us God is the one and only captain
His blessings come through prayer-fountain
And give us strength to move a mountain.

Absolutely ~ Start a group and I'll be happy to hop in. You may want to be cautious to indicate you're talking "Ancient Tantric Living" not ... as you know.

I have not read any of the books you recommend, and look forward to it. Here's an introduction to Anand's tantric perspective:
Seven Tantric Keys of Awakening

The practices and rituals you will find here are doorways that reveal the inherent beauty and meaning of our ordinary moments:
• Say yes to life in all its erotic passion.
• Go with the flow of the life force within and all around you.
• Trust yourself, and allow your personal power to manifest in life.
• Open your heart in loving compassion to self and others.
• Authentically express your creativity and your truth.
• Look within to achieve clarity and insight in your life.
• Surrender to your Source and know gratitude, spiritual peace, and a new capacity to live at your maximum potential in every moment.

Her book talks about our anti-ecstatic world and how we can overcome that with even finding ecstasy in the mundane.

Have you read "The Art of Everyday Ecstasy" by Margot Anand? It was a great book on how tantric living can and should be part of our every day lives.

I love your last statement about learning the sacred practice of tantra. The (It's not what you think) tells me you actually have a passion for the authentic lifestyle of tantric living. Would love to share experiences. :-)

I think it is a good idea, we can have running bet about how long it will take before the born again people show up and tried to convert us.

Well, lets put it this way, my experience of having been blessed to dance in African Companies is a opportunity I cherish. The drumming was definitely healing to be around. I can only imagine what it must be like to have that woven into your daily life from birth to death.

I felt more of a spiritual connection in the Youruba music and dance that I did, since most of the songs, dances and music are dedicated to the Orishas as opposed to the Ghanaian dance that I fear often had more of a waring focus.

But I did have some what I could only define as outer body experiences while performing Modern dance.
