@Dollar Bill, excellent. I agree, thank you for sharing. Very enlightening.

@Dollar Bill - Interesting - but not just because of what it is...I actually knew what this was going to be even before I clicked on the link. It's that good old IQ synchronicity at work again :)

(24 Aug '12, 17:20) Stingray

@Dollar Bill - Yes, I'm sure :) I first saw it a few years ago and when I saw your posting I "knew" what it was straightaway without needing to click the link. I seem to be naturally picking up on more and more "impressions" these days. My wife finds it quite frustrating (and scary) when I'm answering her thoughts before she's managed to say anything verbally. Might sound like I'm making it up, but I'm really not :)

@Dollar Bill, there are no links in those comments. You might have some adware/malware running on your browser or machine. Can you try it with a different browser?

@barry allen I think it IS my problem. Resetting my browser. Sorry for the inconvenience.

@Stingray does your wife call you on the phone when you think about calling her? That's always fun...

@Dollar Bill I still can't get the link for this - when I put the address Ahg69c etc into You Tube I came up with a couple of men who appeared to be on the verge of watching something unsavoury - should I keep watching "Haitian v watches 2 girls 1 cup" or can you suggest a title for the video you want us to watch?

@Catherine- Try this link Catherine

@Satori - thanks - not at all what came up the first time! @Dollar Bill - very good!

(26 Aug '12, 13:18) Catherine

@ursixx - "does your wife call you on the phone when you think about calling her?" - Sometimes, but it's usually worse than that...I often know when she is about to call and what she is calling about...which makes the phone call irrelevant :) But the paradox is that without her clear intention to make the call added to her physical action of starting to make the call, I doubt I would feel her clearly enough. So the actual call becomes both necessary and unnecessary at the same time :)

@stingray and @ursixx - have experienced this phenomena also. Sometimes when Anne and I are driving on a long trip, I'll say, "Ok, ok, we'll pull over at the next rest top." It is as though she said she needed a bathroom break, but she did not vocalize it. I often get a response, "Yeah I need to go, but did not want to say anything because I realized when would be pulling off the x way soon and we could stop then."

(28 Aug '12, 10:09) Dollar Bill

But the intent to speak powered her remark. Sometimes I will finish her sentence without really knowing (from other clues) what she was about to say. She remarked that she was thinking about buying a copier. I said "Canon or Mita?" Her eyes got big and she said, "HOW did you know I was down to making a choice between just those two?"

Distance does not seem to matter. We can communicate over a long distance.

(28 Aug '12, 10:13) Dollar Bill

Before we met, and I was dating other women, this also happened. Often with people I barely knew. The usual response was fear and they expressed a desire to go home.

Particularly because I seemed to find their consternation very funny.

Anne loves it. Guess this is why we have been together a long time. She also greatly enjoys unusual manifestations that accompany being around me.

But it never seemed to go both ways. No one told me what I was thinking or about to say.

@Dollar Bill the awareness test that you posted.

(28 Aug '12, 11:34) Fairy Princess

Mmmm, nice memory.... I had a love whom I was so close to, we read eachother's minds like this. We also used to waltz around a crowded dancefloor with our eyes closed, and never bump into anyone. It was like we had our own energy field, and people sort of glanced off it. Really fun. :)

similar to a question i have ask before Dollar bill. keep on that path the more aware you are the more truth you can handle. the only problem is that sometime people fall one side or the other and they do not accept the other view. if they would split that pieces of wood and lift that stone it would not happen. ontil they do it they are stuck in that darkness to different extent. let there be light, be the light that you can be.

Thank you for sharing! Enlightening..... :)

Thanks brother @white tiger, we all need to work on ourselves. If you see something you don't like in another, look within yourself. If you can neutralize your "problem", you will not be able to see theirs.

If you judge them, you will not be able to free yourself from your similar condition.

(30 Aug '12, 11:29) Dollar Bill

you are welcome brother Dollar Bill,but even when you have no problem does not mean that you do not see other people problem. it just mean that you can accept them at their level of understanding and give them a hand by telling them the truth, if you think they are ready to progress. after that they are responsible to make that choice or not make that choice. the light shines in the darkness but the darkness did not understand it.

(30 Aug '12, 19:25) white tiger

@Dollar Bill Makes a good point.

I did it and wow, thats all i will say ! WOW!!!! It is amazing, truly amazing.

@white tiger - Only If they are ready than can hear you. If they have eyes, they can see the Truth. It is always worth trying when we sense contrast. But we can't judge or blame them if they cannot. "EAE"

(02 Sep '12, 10:19) Dollar Bill

@Dollar Bill .did i not said: do not judge, but stay in truth with a good soul(heart and mind) do not blame,split that pieces of wood and lift those stones and you will find me there. for some that have to much darkness and evil stored in their heart they have to much to bear and they cannot handle the truth,and they produce evil from the over flow of their heart.but know this only the truth can set them free. so they need to make that decision for them self to seek the truth.

@Dollar Bill the narrow gate is always there but fee will enter that gate and many will enter the wide gate of destruction. when the whole world is born of water and the spirit and enter the narrow gate their will be no more darkness,and the builder will make the below as the above,worshiping in spirit and truth.
