Hello my friend...all I can tell you is my own view on things. When I refer to love, I do not refer to the transient 'romantic' love but true unconditional, Universal Love. While Romantic Love has the purpose of bringing two people together, it is the unconditional love that sustains that relationship. It is unconditional love that asks us to care for eachother and to help and support those less well off than ourselves. Caring for this earth and all who inhabit her....without thought or satisfaction of our own needs, volunteering to help those things that need sustenance or protection or caring. In order to receive love we must become love.
This is just my own truth I speak here and a very basic overview dearest but I hope my brief explanation helps somewhat.
And remember one thing, you are Love by the very nature of being human my friend, and it is human 'society' that changes this in us.

Hi Bob, please don't feel badly, it was me that removed her from the site. I wrote her a very nice letter and gave her links to a few great teen witch/pagan/occult sites that are geared towards teens and young adults, but still tackle all the grown up issues, and have the same great info. I also gave her links to scarlet teen for issues relating to sacred sexuality, etc. So she wasn't left hanging high and dry.
This site is 18+ for various legal considerations, so it's just not possible for us to allow members to remain when we're aware they are under age.
You did the right thing, the sites that I referenced her to are really good ones, I know some of the admins there, and she's going to be better suited there in the long run exploring with peers.
For sure, thats the ticket really, and the only way to find other non-conformists is to be openly non-conformist.. lol, if we hide ourselves then we don't find each other either, so that's no good! Personally I think 90% of the world are probably non-conformists in hiding.. that's the big irony. We're all not 'normal' it's just that most of us are still trying to pretend.. *smile*
One of the things I'm hoping the Temple will do in time is bring people together in person as well as online.
We have a group for Canada and one for the UK, maybe you should start one for the US? As the site grows you could have a thread for every state, and if we get really big, we can end up with a group for every state. I know some people in the UK group have already made some efforts towards in person connections.
I think a lot of people here would be interested in meeting like minded people in their area.
Thanks bob for a such a kind and heartfelt comment.
I think a lot of people would like to be living in different kinds of relationships, but actually taking the plunge and doing so can be very intimidating in our society. There are all kinds of discriminations people face and I think it can be a hard step for many to make.
I think in time, I hope in time, this will change and our world will be more welcoming of allowing people to decide what kinds of bonds to form with each other and what kinds of families and lifestyles they want to create.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better, and thanks for your sweet words.. !
