I thought that you might be interested in this because I saw that one the interests of this community was Eck. My grandmother was an Eckist. She passed away about two months ago.

My grandmother's dying wish was to publish a book of her poetry, and the day before she died she was told from the publisher that her dream was going to come true. 2 months after she passed away, the book is published.

If we sell 500 hardcopy books, it will appear on the shelves of Barnes and Noble. So please, consider buying this book. It truley is amazing, and it would mean alot to the memory of my Nanny.

I think this book is amazing. It is poetry about spirituality and her journey through Eck, love, and life. I have grown up around my grandmothers poetry, and I have always found it so emotionally moving and inspiring. I honestly think that others will love it just as I have.

Love and Marriage

Why do people have to get married to be in "love"? If these people getting married were all in love, then why is the divorce rate so high? The only reason people get married is to feel secure, and im not saying that it is wrong to try to feel secure, but should you do it at the expense of other peoples feelings? Is that right? That is why, to me, marriage means absolutely nothing. Sure, marriage would be great if it was actually between two people in love, but most of the time it's not. You can never tell when your in love, the only time is when you die and the "special" someone is right next to you, and you know they are there becuase they want to be there, not becuase the feel obligated to be there, that is the only time you know when two people are in love. All marriage does for you, besides the sense of security, is make someone fell obligated to do something. Call me crazy but i would never want anybody to do anything for me if they didn't want to. I would never want anyone to do something just cause they feel obligated. Love is something that you want not something that is enforced upon you by this "holy matromony". Don't be decieved, the other percentage of people that don't get divorced aren't in love. Love is almost is almost impossible to obtain, you can't just walk out the door and look left and right and even get close to seeing love. There are some lucky people who may have been in love, but it isn't anywhere close to what the successful marriage statistics tell us. I may be wrong, you may say "andrew you are to harsh on the word love, its not that hard to find", if so then i dont' want to work hard to obtain it, I mean if it is not special then I don't want it, and it has no appeal to me. I believe in what the word "love" represents but I don't believe in "love" the way everyone else describes it, no that is called lust. Maybe everyone else is smarter than me and has realized that true love can not be described in words so they use the word "love" as something less. If that is true I just wasted a lot of time trying to explain the unexplainable. I think that true love can only be obtained through a life long friendship, that is made into a sexual relationship, but only after TRUE LOVE has came. Until then I want to have just a sexual relationship with people I know I wont ever be in love with. Then when I fall in love with that one person, then that is when the sex will do something other than physical pleasure. That is what will make my sex with someone I love special. I don't have to fool myself and say it wont be special if I have sex now. It wont make any difference how many chicks I have sex with, but the first time with my TRUE LOVE will be uber special, and indescribable. Thanks for reading this long useless garbage ^_^.

Love and Sex

Why is love and sex associated with one another so much? Why isn't anything else associated with love more? Why is sex such a big deal to everyone? I think that sex shouldn't be associated with love as much as it is. I think kissing should be more associated with love than sex. The reason is this: Sex is a natural instinct of humans, kissing on the other hand isn't. Why isn't kissing the one that is associated with love? What is with abstinance also? I mean I get why some people do it, but most have no reason exept that someone told them it was the wrong thing. So why can't friends have sex with one another without making things wierd? The answer is cause people think that love goes hand in hand with sex, wich a close friend you could also love maybe even more than sexual partner. Who ever reads this is prolly never gonna want to go out with me for fear of cheating and deception, but I say this "I have never cheated on a girl that I liked, and plan for it to stay that way". I'm not saying that im perfectly without self-deciete and propaganda, but im on the road to becoming that way, wich is good enough for me. Ya I would probably subconsiously associate sex with love, but are instincts tell us to have sex. Back when we were neandrathals the chicks would have no say in wich man the would have sex with or how many times. Now we put all our love into a sexual relationship, which is much more dangerous then putting all your love in a deep friendship. I say go with the friends, if you are friends with the person you are having sex with on a totally equal level then you are far luckier than most on this planet. Have I made my point? Is anyone confused? If so then comment.

dont believe in god..does that mean i dont believe in george bush???

Watched a little of the campaign today. As i live in australia i only get a little bit of it from sbs the day after it happens.

saw a noticable difference in the two. kerry treated bush with respect and attack his opponent with dignity while Bush totally ran kerry into the ground making offensive jokes about him. Unfair Mr Bush. Like kerry a whole lot more even though i am a dean girl.

Bring back Che Geuvara...he will save America.

conservative leader Howard just got back in here in australia....Unfair need che to liberate us too
