Make your suggestions to improve our site here.

I've created a Welcome pack, which is a sort of introduction Tour to Unlock Reality for new members, (which keep coming in droves ).

Have a look.


WELCOME PACK - Visit Here First

If you like it, my suggestion is that this could be red pinned to the home page, allowing you to unpin the links it provides, making things neater and easier to access. Just a suggestion.

I love what you’ve done with the welcome Arthor, its very slick and elegant, it really clears up the top of the page and will be a lot easier for everyone – thank you. I have pinned and re-pinned accordingly.

I should say here, for new members, that we really do welcome your suggestions.

Much of the recent improvements which have been made are a result of new members expressing some confusion when entering the site.

This new format, the FAQ's, the welcome for new members, even the form of the list are all results of previous suggestions, and we thank you for that.


If you see something that you feel could be better, this is the place to express it. All positive ideas will be considered seriously. If you are a member here, then this is your site too. We want to hear from you. We welcome your opinions. Don't be shy.

Suggestion: Open an Unlocking the Truth about the Reality of Spirituality
12 years ago

For us people who are spiritually minded, it is understood that human beings are the only animal that can conjecture thought, goals and aims...and hence the reason for our existence-to provide a way for all animals to have access to evolutionary growth, physically, mentally and spiritually.

We all need as many people as possible to think positively and to pass that thought process, sincerely, on to their animal friends, in their lives to all others and to reach out to all the less fortunate who don't have a good outlook on life, such as so many political and corporate entities who just can't help but continue to kill animals and make wars, for starters.

We think that, from now on, it is TIME for human beings to include even just a tad of space to vegan spirituality while you are at work. And during your personal time it is mandatory, paramount, absolutely necessary that each human capable of understanding this message of thinking positively, each must provide a sincere amount of personal time to the uniqueness of the human condition, and then pass the word on to others in every stage of development of experience.

We think it's time to discuss the Reality behind Spirituality.

Check out how far the BUEC has come since we incorporated with the above knowledge my higher powers have, in their behind the scenes way, provided to us as a stepping stone to enlightenment.

Our sites at various web portals we've made a home; we're cool, hip, loving, smart and savvy. There is no reason for all enterprises and people across the globe NOT to leave a space for us on their pages, in their minds and hearts, and in their day since we are what the Universe wants, must have, and needs to happen to make a better world.

It always has been time to live... really live... and not just a little.

I believe that every Person in the World, as well as ALL people in the United States, including our resource sources, corporations, churches, hospitals...all entities, should have, add, or should create a vegan spirituality dash of light to their policies, advertising, outlines and in all ways, including capitalistic and other products offerings. We, in turn, can give that touch of enlightened comfort to all our animals, be they lamb, tiger, fish, insect or somewhere else in the animal kind-doms.

The same must go for our governmental representatives, too. So don't think we are just coming to fantastic Unlocking Reality members and then leaving you all to fend on your own. This morning all Democratic Senators and Governors have begun to be reached. As we near the end of August, all party representatives and a few newspapers, magazines and so forth will have been initially contacted.

What do you say?

who is ABCD E?
12 years ago
why does "ABCD E" not have a profile on file? i find this to be slightly strange! although i agree with some of his/her opinions, it doesn't seem to be right that ABCD E can voice so many opinions, but no one can reach his/her profile. i'd kinda like to know a little more about this person...

Hi Gypsy W.

If you have any questions about why or what individual members do or do not do I suggest you ask them directly – as anyone else who comments will only be speculating.

Further – if you have any questions about Care2 in general and what they permit and why, the place to go is..........

Care2 Feedback and Suggestions

on that site you can ask questions directly and also help to co-create (through making sugestions) what goes on here – they are very nice and helpful people over there

didn't we used to have a thread with just the names of those who have read UR posted up?  I think it would be nice to have a list now of who has read it

Hi there Chris

Thank you for your suggestion We do have such a topic (link below) it is slightly behind – what with the current increase of readers but it will be updated soon



Who did read UR?

11 years ago

My dear friends, I apologize if this is not the correct place for this post.  I have been #62 on the list to read UR for such a very long time. Is there any chance that I will ever get to see the manuscript? I was a teacher for 35 years and have a great respect for manuscripts of any kind. If someone trusted me enough to let me read UR, I would take the best of care and return it promptly after reading it.                                                            

Thank you for giving me a chance.

This might sound a bit like a cop out, but I think it is worth expressing. It was over a year ago when we heard about Unlock Reality, and started the first list. Those at the start went through the excitement of hearing the first reports from readers and the disappointment of having our first copy stolen.

For a time there was no book, but the group continued to grow and eventually Dscape joined us. She had a copy and developed a unique way to share it.

My point here is that UR is what it is. At the moment it is not released yet. The manuscripts which were provided are still a preview, and we must be patient. My copy is being passed around friends, as I know many others are. We`are all doing our best.

Many who have had to wait have said it really is worth the wait once they read it.

There will come a time, soon no doubt, when UR will be as close as your nearest bookshop or library, and in a way, on that day, this special expereince we are having will reach a new chapter, and the door will close on this one. Those of us who knew about it before its release will become a finite number. Rather than be sad that you have not read it yet, why not be happy to be among them that knew about it first. I know I am, and I love the friends I have made in the process.



Till then, I would suggest you do as we have done up to now. If you want to read it, then post mesages saying so, and someone like Dscape, with a copy will come along.

Hi there Karen

There is some good news for you regarding the list! It is now moving & we have found that some people on the list have read UR through other means or cannot be contacted/found so will not be taken up there place on it. These two factors together means you should get your turn sooner then your number on the list would indicate

I also put together a short list of other alternatives (link below) – offers made by kind members – that you might try also. I am sorry for you wait, but I’m sure your patients will be rewarded and that you will enjoy the experience all the more for it

what about the new guys? - how do we read it?


Please understand
11 years ago

I did not intend for my post to sound like I was whining or expected some priority treatment. I was simply asking a question. I do treasure the time spent and the friends made on the group and I expect to patiently wait my turn like everyone else.

Thanks for the welcome.

I would suggest updating a couple of your threads as some of the links you provide are no longer available. Also, much of it is dated in 2005 which states there will be forthcoming updates in 2006, which leaves the reader (at least, me, lol) wondering if those things happened or not.

Thanks for all the hard work which has gone into this group!!

Hiya Kim,

Do you think you could be a bit more specific please so our hosts and others can go to the threads in question and clarify things. New Year is a good time for this suggestion, it would seem. Good to hear from you.

Hey,

I had a question?  I hope that this is not taken in offense; as I AM the Queen of Questions.  So, I appologize if it appears rude, because that is not my intentions.  There are some "sacred texts" out there that I have not read before, but for the most part, it is quite easy to obtain a copy!  The bible is or was the #1 selling book, and it said in there that many will read it, but few will understand!  "The Great Mystery of Babylon". 

I was just curious why this "Text" is so hard to get a hold of!  Is there only a sacred few who are allowed access to them?  ect....

ALL MY LOVE

Hey, when did I get upthroaned as "Queen of Questions"?

Hi AnnMarie,

The Unlock Reality book has not been released yet. As a experiment, IDST who inherited it decided to leave a few copies on park benches with Bookcrossing stickers on them, so they could get some feedback.

(Do you know about Bookcrossing? It is a way to leave books for people to find, and report their impressions on the net. See Bookcrossing.com)

The manuscripts started being passed round, and these groups started, like this one. We campaigned to have manuscripts released cause we were asking the same questions as you. ISDT released 7,000 which sold out in 6 days.

They have said plans are underway to publish it worldwide soon, but these things do take time it would seem.

Normally only a small handful of people know about a book before it comes out, but due to the BookCrossing release loads of us found out about it before it being published and have had fun passing it round the world.

Sorry to those who are familiar with all this. It is easy to forget that we have gone a long way since 18 of us formed this group and created the first round robin.

Speaking of which,I spotted a new Round Robin starting at:

http://www.freedomcrowsnest.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=681587&highlight=#681587

My suggestion for you AnnMarie is that you go over there and join the list, which is quite short at the moment. Best of Luck
I'm getting tired of the political roasting going on here
11 years ago
A "Drive Bush Out Regime" thread?  What is going on here?  I am an American, as I've made abundantly clear.  I am not a fan of Bush but I am really wondering why the group hosts continue to allow political discussions of this nature here? 

I realize that UR is about enlightenment and we certainly wish our world leaders could read the book and find enlightenment about a lot of things but do we really have to read political threads like this in this group?  I mean, R E A L L Y?

Can't you all just start a group called "Europeans who think America Sucks" group and discuss all of this there?

I suppose there is a fine line between what is related and what is not.  My vote is that threads related to ousting any political leader are inappropriate.  Aren't there special interest groups that do that?

If I want to read about how my government is in the toilet, there are lots of places I can turn to for that.  I choose to come to the UR group for more positive information.

Let's talk about how to spread enlightenment not how to get rid of a president.  That sounds a lot more on topic to me.

See Jade, you did a wise thing by posting your discontent here and not on the topic. While our Tony only deletes things which are obviously against the Care2 rules, cause he has to as host, we have a sort of natural democracy here, which means topics which are not commented on sink out of sight. See something you don't like and you can help it to sink by just not commenting. It is generally felt that this should be one site were people can express anything decent they like, but on the other hand, nothing says we have to support them.
11 years ago
Jadonia – Arthor is right – we hosts on this site only delete things that are agents the...

Care2
Code of Conduct

This is a UR site and UR is a book that covers a massive spectrum of subjects – surprising for a book of only 122 pages. Unlike a lot of books that people place in the same genera, UR does not just focus on techniques for the individual – though they are in there – it also address politics, history, science and the future (to name a few).

I have often thought that it has been embraced as a useful and enlightening book because it addresses several relevant issue surrounding – ones personal journey – IMO UR's holistic approach avoids some of the pit falls of some of the older and more narrowly focused books out there.

Sooooo – ‘Impeach Bush’ topics are not off topic here, if we are going to have a better inner life, we will need to sort out the ‘outer ones’ as well, nothing exists in isolation…

11 years ago
p.s.

Jadonia – “Can't you all just start a group called "Europeans who think America Sucks" group and discuss all of this there?

The vast majority of this group is not European and you will find that as a consequence the vast majority of those who start/contribute to all the topics here – including the ones you highlight – are not European.

Jadonia – “I choose to come to the UR group for more positive information.

You’re choice is well based – there is much positive stuff here and we always say, if you feel there is something more that you would like to see, please bring it – ALL CONTRABTUTIONS ARE WELCOME ‘be the change you wont to see on the site ’ this place is what WE make it.

I really hope you are not offended – I’m sure no one wishes to offend you. And I hope that your comments will inform future discussions and that all will learn from you voicing your sensibilities – I for one am grateful and thankful to you

I appreciate your responses and understand what you are saying.  That said, I must express that I am frankly tired of the political bent this group has taken. 

It causes me to avoid visiting because there is a lot of negativity about my country and my country's government here that is not helpful or solution oriented.  The funny thing is, I share many of the views expressed but it is HOW they are expressed which gets really old, really quick. 

So, thanks for the response.  I really do appreciate it but I am probably going to be an infrequent participant here until there is a topic that inspires me in a positive way or until I feel an urge to start a thread. 

There are enlightenement groups on Care2 who don't allow political witch hunts.  I'd rather spend my time there than here, wading through cloddish political conversations before I can find something of greater substance.

Hi everyone

I only  just realised this thread was here so a big to Arthor for having the insight to start it.....

Now I notice we have over 3000 Members which I must say is very impressive. Now I dont you dont mind me asking here but has anyone got any suggestions for  some new threads? For example the lovely Elizabeth has put some of her wonderful poetry on here, but I was wondering whether you would welcome a poetry thread where you could either post some of your own or perhaps some of your favourite poetry?

Or maybeyou  would like a sport thread?ie funny stories or memorable  ones about any sporting activity you enjoy)  Anyway please if you have any suggestions for new threads perhaps post them here or contact me via the link on the main page of UR or if you simply want to start a new topic please go ahead.

Much appreciated

take care

Hello, dear Suggestion Box.
I just added a little post to Alphabet Game V, and I thought that it would be lots easier to keep up with if the date order were reversed to Most Recent First.  Of course that would deny new readers the joy of all of the wonderful words there, but it would be oh-so-much-easier for those of us who track and contribute to it.  Perhaps the Most Recent First order could be applied to other ongoing games.  ¿Qien sabe?
Please let me know what you think and decide.
