Quote from: Ulrich on September 16, 2018, 21:00:05Well I've never been a big MM fan, but there used to be one song I kinda liked, I've forgotten the title though. I'd accept him if he wanted to join us for a Curefan meeting.

Quote from: tanyasmith on September 16, 2018, 15:47:31Sounds fun, Chemicaloverload! Although the truth is that I will never ever listen to more than one word or chord of a Marilyn Manson song. I had a dream as well. It was one I've had before, at least in the same location. It was in a smallish amphitheater with red seats. I recognized a smiling guy who was collecting little pieces of paper from audience members. The Cure was taking a while to come out. Then some people from behind the scenes came and rearranged the audience. I moved from where I was sitting to very close to the front row. Robert Smith came out for like half a minute, as if doing a sound check or something, looked at the audience, but then disappeared quickly. Then some performers came out on stage to do an advertisement and the audience was told to respond in a way to show viewers at home that we were into what we were watching. There were even paid audience members brought in, wearing business clothing. I had the sense that The Cure didn't approve of using the fans to do this and hadn't fully given approval. Then the advertisement was over, the stage was cleared and the audience went back to normal. The Cure had not come out by the time I woke up.
Quote from: chemicaloverload on September 16, 2018, 22:08:23It was as if the people producing The Cure show were using Cure fans to experiment on or for other purposes unrelated to The Cure. Kind of like when you give your email out for one purpose and it's sold to a bunch of vendors. It was as if the ticket agency was using Cure fans to promote outside interests or something. Anyway, I got the feeling that The Cure and/or Robert Smith didn't approve of Cure fans being used like that, maybe didn't have the guts to speak up against it or maybe didn't know that the audience would be used for outside purposes. I have been dreaming about The Cure for so many years! I didn't pay attention to most of my dreams about them until a couple years ago. One of the most interesting was when I dreamt last year that they were going to be playing in Orange (that's the county in California where I live, Orange County) and the next morning I woke up and had an email from my sister that The Cure in Orange was going to be playing in Hollywood with Lol Tolhurst giving a Q&A. I know not all of my Cure dreams are prescient, but some of them are. This video made it to 100,000 views today! I had no idea these little rusty videos would make a dent, but I'm grateful. <3 Hope you like it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQOM0xNnilI&list=RDMMYQOM0xNnilI&start_radio=1

Quote from: word_on_a_wing on December 01, 2018, 07:41:43Tanya, your discussions about love have stirred me to share this:"To love someone, even in the usual human manner, is to get a brief, dim glimpse of something within that person which is tremendous, awe-inspiring and eternal. ...we think that this "something" is unique. He or she, we say, is like nobody else. That is because our perception of the Reality is clouded and obscured by the external manifestations - the character and individual qualities of the person we love - and by the way our own ego-sense reacts to them. Nevertheless, this weak flash of perception is a valid spiritual experience and it should encourage us to purify our minds and make them fit for that infinitely greater kind of live which always awaits us. This love is not restless or transient, like our human love. It is secure and eternal and calm. It is absolutely free from desire, because love and beloved have become one". p31-32- Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood, 1953, from a book in which they were discussing the yoga aphorisms of Patanjali.❤️🌸💕This is certainly a teaching I've been trying to integrate into my life, as yes I have certainly at times found myself staring Googly-eyes towards RS before I catch myself and bring myself back to Reality 😆 I found something that helped me was not to cut-off from the loving feelings I may have towards a specific form, but to instead expand the feelings while also letting go of preconceptions and beliefs (incl who I am, who the other is, what love itself is etc etc ...just let it all go, and love) ❤️
