Would you ever choose to be homeless?
That is a great post. Your experience sounds amazing, it reminds me of something I read a while ago, sorry for being vague as I can't remember to well, but it was s Something about ether Hindu are Buddhist living with no home or possessions and would only eat what was offered to them and rely on the kindness of others for a place to stay. What country do you live in? I would love to do this and try it out, I just have no idea where I would begin.

Would you ever choose to be homeless?
It is the only way to travel. When you say you where homeless, what do you mean? You didn't have a permanent residence and where just squatting with friends? What was the process of staying with randoms, did you just meet people and ask if you could stay? Did you have a job? To be honest I have thought about doing it a couple of times, more so just to see what it was like for a homeless person. To start from nothing and see what it was like to be able to get a job without owning a car or residence, and to how hard it was to get a place to stay without a job and not relying on anyone. Personally I am for the voluntary simplicity movement, and believe we have too much attachment for material things, I would love to spend my days living off the land, not being apart off all the issues of today. But unfortunately we live in a world where this is not easily possible. “Why can’t we lose the stigma about being homeless”, it’s very unfortunate that many people are homeless and live on the streets; many of these people also have mental illness. I could not imagine how hard it would be to own nothing, the only people you know are also homeless, what it would be like to find something to eat and a place to sleep for the night let alone try and get a job, and to top it off a failed system to support you and not many people really giving a shit. I don't mean to be rude but the “being homeless” you are talking about would be a dream for many of the people who sleep on the pavement every night. The stigma is on the mark, and should stay to show people what it is to be homeless. We can lose the stigma when we people’s rights are met and have a shelter over their head. Thanks for the great subject.

Is giving Junk food to kids child abuse?
Who is in full control of what they buy? That is not my plan, as I do not intent do put it into action (today anyway). But yes it is my idea that I thought was worth spreading. “Do you think that you buy stuff you don't want and don't need *because* corporations convinced you by advertising?” Yes, well i more believe that corporation convinces you that you need them. You’re not just going to but something if you don’t think you need it. But if i think i need that breast implant for all the boys to like me, that TV the of a cinema so i can see it better, or that double coated chocolate bad because you think it will bring me more pleasure than the carrot. That yes I’m going to buy it, i dint need it yesterday, but after seeing that commercial and reading that magazine i need it now... “Do you want to solve that problem with limiting how corporations can advertise their products?” Yes, to some degree, i would do my research first, or better yet leave it up to the experts. I do not think it would solve the situation but i don’t see how it could make t worse. If we only saw advertisement of fresh fruit and vegetables and where told how delicious they where, don’t you think that that would have some kind of impact? You have your ideas and beliefs and i have mine i, i don’t think we are going to change ether point of view, as i feel the lack of respect from both sides. But thank you for being a part in the debate, and I’m sure it was interesting for onlookers  Jesse, i will look up that book one day, thanks.

Is channeling real/possible or just a hoax?
Everyone already has there set beliefs and ideas, and it is very difficult to give them new ideas, let alone change their mind, or view on things. To a point yes my mind is set on the idea that what you see isn’t what you get, and science cant reduce everything to a most basic form, so there for be able to explain everything through equations, that point alone is to say that we think we are above and beyond the universe. We are vulnerable if we do not know something or can’t explain it, when we are walking home in the dark and we see a strange shadow. Vulnerability is seen as weak and insignificant, If we are able to expose something, understand it, and explain it, we are beyond it. We have broken it down to something smaller and are now superior to it. The scary shadow in the dark vs. oh it’s just a tree. We have reduced the possibilities of what it could be to something we can understand and control. Science wants reduce everything to something smaller and so we can understand it, there for we can control it, and are beyond it. We will be the master of the universe. How arrogant we must be. I have made up my mind yes, not is saying this is how it is, but more being open to new ideas and possibilities, not just saying “well science can’t prove it, so your wrong.” I’m sure your mind is set as well, but I could only guess that you haven’t put much research into the subject, as your reference was Wiki, which it states it’s self that it makes no guarantee of validity of its content. (Just wiki search Wikipedia). To look at limited sources of information and look for the parts you agree with will only add confidence that your ideas are right. I m not trying to put your method down as i and I’m sure many people do it, we listen for what we want to hear. I only encourage you to open your mind a little to other possibilities and not just shrug off an alternate idea by thinking you know the answer and are beyond it by saying “I leave it to someone with the energy.”

Your right, I did mention that there seems to be evidence. So to challenge that evidence whether it is real or not would seem only fair, that is what I also have done in a way, by asking the original question. The seemingly evidence that I referred to (but did not exactly reference or specify) have all come from text I have read, so your previous comment would be right, to a point , if you where only focusing on these types of “evidence”. Also keep in mind that the original thought was not can it be proven but is it possible? This is where the hypothetical spiritual master comes in. Is it possible that someone who is so in touch with spirit would live a material, egoistic life, and broadcast what we see as a paranormal ability, but what is only natural for him, by written text through book or internet? I would say yes it is possible, very possible actually. Because we don't have the evidence, we cannot test it, so there for it isn’t real??

I don't 100% believe in channeling or paranormal abilities, in saying that I don't disregard them on the basis that there is no Proof or evidence.  Somethings are beyond our perception, you only limit your self if you have the belief that everything has to be proven. Can you hear radio waves with out the use of an instrument? No you can not. If I was to tell a someone in the year 800 that I was able to send a sound half way across the world they would of thought I was mad. My point is that many phenomena exsist, just because we havnt developed a technology or instrument to measure it doesn't mean it is not there.  Here is an idea about the prize of a million dollars: I'm sure some people do pretend to be able to channel, and do so for many reasons, including money; so there for can not prove it. Let's look at a deeply spiritual master who is one with the universe, and can connect with trees and the stars, he can hear the flowers telling him that they would like a drink of water, he connects with a manifestation of consciousness from another dimension,  he can hear the universe tell him the secrets (which arnt really secrets) that we are all connected and one. Do you think even if this spiritual master could prove that he could channel different sources, he would be even slightly interested in 1 million dollars? If I where in that position I would be much happier sitting quietly watching the grass grow.
