Entrained Not Strange

Low, middle and upper class (*2)
spell-binding manipulation (*3)

(*1) We are given a name at birth which signifies our individuality. Not
suggesting it shouldn’t happen, but it creates the foundation for
everything else. If on the other hand, we realize that we are part of a
collective whole (Unified Field) and whatever actions we take we will also

(*2) Along with a name, we get a station.

(*3) Because consciousness is an active force under the natural laws of
quantum physics, we can become paralyzed into whatever status we may find

(*4) Yes, pretty gross, the vomit I mean; but it got your attention. Each
of the words in that line has an individual identity that our mind attaches

behavior, accepting only that which coincided with their own personal

When she is not serving customers, gazing at rocks, or visiting her grandchildren Linda is writing poetry. And even during all the above activities she has been known to write still.
