This part is not a lie. I am closing the forum down. I will remain personally available through my email and will respond to pretty much anyone who cares to write me. This will change the dynamics quite a bit. It was great fun, but I just love to mix things up. Almost 500 members and over 30,000 posts is not bad.
I thank all members, contributors and lurkers, but now it's down to a little more serious work. I promise you I will not go 'lite' on you. Maybe it's time for you to let go of everything. If you need a little kick in the butt, let me know. I just let go of the forum... what's next?
So, write me if you wish. Strangely, I never seem to tire of reading your thoughts and feelings. I only ask that you keep your focus on the subject; You, your self-realization/enlightenment/Truth, whatever you wish to call it.
I will also plug any books, authors, events or such as I feel offer genuine value. As many of you know, I have already mentioned Scott Kiloby, Greg Goode, Tom Stone, Noah Elkreif, Jerry Stocking, Marc Leavitt, Peter Ralston and Byron Katie. All of whom I hold in high regard and feel they have something real and valuable to share. Pick and choose as suits your taste. You can also forward suggestions to my email.
I feel that a blog-type site utilizing your emails may be appropriate but who knows what will happen. You can check back here as I intend to write more when called for. I'm also thinking of inviting other contributors, with a focus on the aforementioned folks as a starter. I am not the last word on 'Truth' as there is no last word. However, I am rather intolerant of folks who are trying to sell tomatoes from an empty cart. You won't find them mentioned here. For those who think I am arrogant and full of myself, you are only half correct, I am full of you.
Love ya, Jed. firstname.lastname@example.org
