Hey Now Everyone,

Just a tid-bit of a thought that I'd like to share with the lot of you's.  I've been in and out of the post briefly because Dez is home, he will be leaving soon...but during my journey in and out I have seen many of us insulting others.  Please stop that because it saddens my heart. 

It never cost any of us a dime to be kind to one another.  We are here to help one another in the wonderful forum and make great connections that can last a life time. 

So please, consider these things:

  • If someone post in the wrong place, let the webmaster do his job.  Don't get upset about it.  Todd leaves a nice little note that says "Moved to......."
  • If you don't like a poster, don't read their thread.
  • We are the most important lottery family on the web!
  • Don't create a bad influence for the visitors.
  • Give the same respect to other posters that you'd want given to yourselves.
  • We are here to build up, not tear down.
  • Remember this is a privilege, and it is our responsibility to respect the priviliege not abuse it.
  • This place is user friendly, so please, stop breaking my heart.

I telling you this because I love this place and the posters in it.  So let's send off positive vibes, one to another and leave the negitivity in the trash.  Just consider this, is all that I ask.  We are family!

Thanks,

PaTrice

        hey now J,

        um good:)  i just want the lot of us to respect and help one another, and be able to really enjoy being here when we show up, that's all.  as we all know, life is way too short for anything else.  most of us talk about how great it is to frequent here, how we love the tools, and we even write about the great friends we've made.  so to me, that is more than enough reason to walk in the expression of respect and appreciation.  so i guess that i have high hopes and expectations of everyone of us here.  and i guess one could say that i have a tender heart.  and i do get upset sometimes, but when i do, it's usually with the lottery makers/officials and when people say mean spirit things to hurt others.

        thanks for your reply.

            It's something nice to hope for.

            But we're all operating under the limits of the human mind and flesh.  We behave as humans, which includes a whole spectrum of interactions outside the range of brotherly love.

            Same as humans interacting anywhere, towns interacting, nations interacting.

            Utopia isn't in sight yet, though we've telegraphed ahead, trying to get it built before we arrive.

                    oh yes, J:

                    it is something nice to hope for.  i can agree with that.  but most of us are so very misinformed in thinking that what we call reality is really the walking dead.  to me, the walking dead is just a person who lives in illusional lies that they presume are true.  the whole idea of what i am saying here, is Exercise your choice to treat others they way you expect to be treated and enjoy one another.  this is not impossible and is within everyone of our grasp, simply by making a choice and i promise you, that the outcome will be nothing less than perfect. 

                    most of us think of an answer to a question before we even get a grip on what the question or comment really was.  i am the perfect example, being here has really taught me to think all things through before i execute a choice, because once i make that choice, that's it, i have absoloutely no control over the outcome.  now that is what shakes me up and down, knowing that i have this great power of choice and i abuse and or misuse it. in life, the only control we really have, is by making a choice.  once the choice is made, the outcome carries the weight of the remains within a day, and sometimes it carries weeks and even months.  so i believe that there is an element of control within everyone of us, if we choose through consideration the choice of speach and activity before we execute it.  and at times, it may not be easy, but the bottom line is that we have a choice and we have control over the choice we make. 

                    it's like my son made a choice to join the US Military, the outcome of a choice he made years ago became WAR.  he has no control today of that choice made, like karma or justice, the outcome showed face of a choice that was made.  sure he walks on the prayers and hopes of a lot of members here at the Post that have prayed for him and I soley depend upon the outcome of those prayers, but more-over, those people on the post chose to pray for him and what i know is this, those prayers will have an outcome.

                    at and besides, who says it can't be Utopia right here at the post and our everyday lives. not only is it something nice to be ahead of us, but a place where we can choose to live right now, if we could just slow down a -tad- i honestly believe the lot of us would see a whole lot of what you call Utopia it is not impossible and it is within our reach!

                    you made a choice to reply to this post, you didn't have to, but you did, so responses are the outcome of the choice you made and same applies to me for posting it.  we may disagree to disagree without being cruel and stinky about it.  anyone of us can take a moment and ask ourselves, "if i say this, will it offend or hurt this person" now, um not saying that this is the soup of the day, but what i am saying is that it can, and should be done, just by a simple choice of consideration. 

                    i considered what i would post here not just based on my emotions, i asked myself, "would this offend me?" "what will i do if someone responds with a cruel response?" and i considered many other possibilities, because i knew, once it was posted, i could not take it back and  but with the hopes that some may read this post and find their own harmony and share it, just like me.  "It's Just A Choice We Make"

                        Couldn't have said it better myself,ducksafloat! I'm pretty new here and was surprised by all the negative stuff. We're here to learn and for information,aren't we? I think we should all keep an open mind to all the great people here who share their techniques, systems, theories and ideas. If they don't work for us,oh,well. If they do,great! But give them a chance before making the "choice" to comment. Thanks,ducksafloat. You have a lot of love,I can feel it. All the best to you and your son!!US Flag

                          lottolaughs,

                          you are exactly right and you are what i call "Cookin' Wit Oil! and that is exactly what i don't want, is for the newcomers and the visitors to get the wrong idea about this place, because we really are the best on the web! 

                          i would never be able to tell the story of all the great people i have met here, so great in fact, that when i am not here i am thinking of being here and the great posters!  just like the movies,  "As Good As It Get's"
