    I thought I'd start a blog here. Last week I had a weird meditation session. It started off really nice. I left my mind wander and the first place I went was to my cat self. I was in some bushes and was watching a goat outside of them between the leaves. The goat walked off and I left the bushes and ran beside a field of wheat. It was fall and everything was orange. Then some other stuff happened and towards the end of the session, I decided to go check out my angel self. So was I looking at a representation of this and told one of my headmates that I felt like I was the angel constantly, like this was me in another universe or maybe a higher dimension or something, and that I felt a thick cord leaving the back of my neck and connecting to the angel. I started pulling on the cord (it was made of purple light) and all of a sudden I started spinning. Like my consciousness was tumbling through space. All I could see was a blur of black and green clouds. Then I stopped and the clouds parted like a stage curtain and I saw a huge moon in the desert. There was a mesa and desert plants on the horizon, all silhouetted. Then it was like something grabbed my by the cord again and I was yanked away from that scene and was spinning in the clouds again. I caught some glimpses of things here and there, but I couldn't make anything out. Then my meditation timer went off and the session ended. I looked up the spinning online. Apparently this happens a lot. I was worried it might be something dangerous, but it seems to be one of those things that just happens sometimes. But judging from the fact that everyone has a different explanation as to what it is or what causes it, no one knows anything about it beyond the fact that it happens. In any case, it was weird.

    Heyo Amber. I haven't been on for a while but since you posted this to our mutual discord server I figured I'd drop by... I know that feel of having that tiny grain of doubt. It's not always there in such a way that I can feel it, but it definitely proves challenging. I both do and don't want to get rid of it as a finality in either direction seems scary to me. In regards to the spiritual contact with other dragons, or spirits in general, I can't really say if it's a help. After all, the grain of doubt whispers, they could all be elaborate creations of my imagination. To me it's sort of like dreaming, you don't know for sure if you are or not until you wake up. I feel I won't find in myself the cure for my doubt, it will come from another source...

    I've posted a lot of things during the past hours. Obviously I'm still struggling to find myself. I want to dig deeper, and while doing so I try to document as to offer yet another example just how far one can go. I hope I succeed in giving a positive example. So, what the heck am I exactly? I'm not a god yet somehow represent the force of life. I'm not a creator yet we all are. I'm only one being yet I'm everything, and so is everybody else... aaah, a confusing puzzle. To spin my spiritual hypothesis wheel a bit further: I've realized yesterday that places like ours, the Earth universe I mean, could be much more vital to the existence of the Multiverse of Minds than I thought. The variety of life this place offers allows small and weak minds to grow and recover. Strong minds again may be beneficial for the Multiverse to exist and flourish. Maybe minds realizing the existence of the Multiverse are a kind of life insurance for it. So by protecting this place I contribute to protecting the whole Multiverse. Am I a Multiversal guardian, then? I never heard of any dragon, mythological being or deity that would come close to this, but I'm apparently short of research at that point. Are there any creational myths or religions that go beyond explaining creation of this Earth universe? The multiverse is a quite modern idea, so I'd be surprised to find any. Aye, these are the thoughts that happen when my mind is unchained. My journey continues, and I'll go on even at the risk of going wrong. Something awesome may be waiting.

    I'm still not too confident to call any of my meditation visions a "memory". But the one memory that really matters is that I remember my purpose. I'm a guardian. I basically am to protect life and nature, that's the first thing I tell everybody. And I more and more come to realize that.. what I actually mean to protect is the very variety of life. I think I mentioned this before, you can see this in many statements I made. I've more than once felt that this vast variety and diversity is what I really love and care about. Much of my thinking seems to be governed by that. All the forms of life, brimming and buzzing across the planet from the deepest oceans to the highest skies, the small things, the huge things, all the colors, all the mindsets. I want to see them all, I love them all. I don't want to lose a single one of them. I want to hold them all dear in my claws. I want this planet to be open and welcoming to anyone and anything, living in balance. I fight everything that diminishes that variety or threathens that balance. This seems to be at the very core of my identity, my existence, my true self. It's the very force of nature and life itself, unstoppably, irrepressably spreading and flourishing in every possible manner, in an everlasting circle. A force that just won't give up, that will always return even if it takes ages to recover, existing since billions of years until this planet will finally cease to be. And, who knows, maybe even only to reappear at another place. Like a true draconic fire that always burns. I seem to be stunned by having written this, by having realized that it's this very force I somehow feel... to be me. I've felt this before, all the time actually. When I'm out in nature and open to it, I feel life all around me and at the same time I feel that this force of life is me. Does it make any sense? What kind of being does that make of me? I don't fully understand yet. Is this only part of the puzzle or is it the essence of what I really am?? Does anyone feel the same, eventually? Please comment or PM me if you do. This is incredible even for myself, I tell you. EDIT: I've re-read this on the day after writing it. It reads completely accurate. I'm very happy to already have received indication that I'm not alone with that feelings, and that they are still in the range of what can be understood and even are partly or fully shared by others. However when I look at the general public it's surely an off-standard perception. Even when I think about people who are very close to animals and nature. That's one thing, but the ones I've met irl are probably still human. Identifying as a dragon and spirit who somehow represents the very force of life itself, that seems... very accurate, but far off. Apparently so far off that it's all enough reason to be called "of another kind", aka otherkin. But even within the otherkin community, it's at the far end of the spectrum as far as I know.

    Agh, I just encountered someone who sounds like they might be otherkin, and I kinda want to tell them that, but also I don't want to scare them off... sucks that the community has such a bad rep these days that I actually worry about that. :'/

    One of my friends won't shut up about him. I don't like single issue politicians, especially since he's basically like Hillary on everything other than UBI. He ain't going nowhere. Either they're going to rig it in favor of Biden like they did with Hillary, or Bernie is actually going to win.

    I like his vision, but I have some serious concerns with how he'll be able to implement his platform. The Freedom Dividend is a great idea, but he states that it will require a constitutional amendment to alter. This means that the Freedom Dividend itself would need to be worked into the constitution. These are issues the democratic party can't even agree on for itself, does he even understand how difficult it is to pass an amendment to the constitution? There's no way it would be done for an issue that is still considered extremely controversial. The policies that I feel, he could likely implement and that I support, are: Funding Autism Intervention Invest in America’s Mental Health Equal Pay Every cop gets a camera Net neutrality Legalize Marijuana Right to Privacy/Abortion and Contraception LGBTQ Rights Nuclear Launch Decisions ... and more The policies that I feel he could likely implement and I oppose, are: Gun Control and the Second Amendment (discriminatory measures against people with disabilities who are not dangerous are too likely) Value-Added Tax (nobody I know in Europe is particularly fond of VAT) Reduce Harm to Children Caused by Smartphones (... we don't need more regulation in this area) Prevent Airlines from Removing Customers (a private business should have the right to remove an unruly customer) Robo-Calling text line (not sure he knows how call spoofing works)

    I have not taken a chance to look at who is running but I am liking his answers to topics which are current issues. I also really like how on the site it mentions an issue then explain why it is one, goals and what will be done about it. Some of the topics covered by Yang that really interest me and why are: Equal pay (no one likes to be paid less than a fellow colleague) Mass incarceration (topic that always came up in my criminal justice classes) this issue can easily be divided into different sections such as overcrowding, not being able to support medical needs of inmates, not enough programs to help inmates and much more. Climate change (we cant turn back the damage done but hopefully we can extend this planet's life) Every cop gets a camera (this can help reduce certain officers act out/make them think about what they plan to do more or could help out an innocent cop who got caught up in a bad circumstance) Net neutrality (help make education more accessible, get in touch with communities, not have unnecessary fees, advertise small businesses and much more) Many others but those are a few.
