I came back to this thread tonight, to apologize for the flippant response to Synaps3 in this discussion. It was a bitter response, born of frustration, and the overwhelming tiredness of dealing with darkness because others refuse. I should not have posted at all. Debi's House deserves better from me. I am going to reply to Synaps3 again, here, now... with what my opinion of his situation is. Not pretty, but truthful. I will discuss my version of "free will" (what I am meaning) and Rules and Regs of Light and Dark. But not here. I will give a good effort to post that in the Spiritual Forum as soon as I can pull the Power to do it right - so soon... maybe sooner ~ and then I will return to my retirement for a time and half time, or half past maybe, or some such. That post will be out of respect for Debi and Her House... that the interpretation is clarified and semantics wiped clean. Synaps, the following is my opinion and my Voice, on this dark thing you are asking about here... since you asked. I have read over this thread many times ~ Real or Trickster matters not. The view is the same. I believe this is not They but One and it is YOUR Spirit thrust from you... and bound by you at the same time... And you are aware, on some level, that this is the product of your efforts. It would take an unimaginable power of will and hatred I would think... And it is the cruelest thing that has ever entered my Sight and that is saying more than you will ever know. I hope you are as aware, on some level, of what the real consequences will be. Within this whole thread you have thrown blame... to mushrooms, lack of love, loneliness, loss of free will, parents... I repeat Lynne here... the lack of love begins with you. And I say, Free Will can not be lost nor taken, only freely given. This is my Opinion and My Voice. If I am wrong ~ The Creator will weight my Feather and the judgement be His.
