"feel motivated"

to be excited by some element of the seed as in "that love rap really motivated me"

"Motivate"

To wave your arm frantically back and forth in an exaggerated fashion in hopes of being called on.

Wow - I was in straight and about 90% of those sayings and meanings made their way to straight.  What a blast from the past!!    :eek:

i remember singing that year on Las Olas- mitch was behind me and cookie, It is strange but that was probably the closest any of the chicks were allowed to be near the guys, we also sang at the broward mall, the same year. we practiced for HOURS on end-
Do you remember the year all of the girls learned the dance to thriller.?
I have a horrible singing voice so I hated when I would be picked to start 'Jingle Bells' after the weekend meeting- which we stopped having and started going to Dania Beach instead for Football.
'Being full of yourself' = having an original or independent idea.
It is interesting it seems those who were in the program earlier and stayed for less time have a very different prospect than those of us in the 80's who spent several years in the group. the group was much smaller and the scrutiny/ control was very intense. the fact that we all lived /worked/ spent every minute together was overwhelming. the only time I was in our house alone was the day I fled, and i was running frantic from one end of the house to the other- I left most my belongings as I felt panicked to get away-

SORRY I WENT OF TOPIC- one door leads to another.

"Everything Happens for a Reason"

"It was meant to be."

"It was destiny that brought me to the Seed."

Ohh, these are tough. I don't like them, and I see them in other religions and New Age beliefs.
However, they are tricky. Here's my thinking:

1. It's good to believe the 'everything happens for a reason,' because it's easy to get depressed and think life is meaningless. However, if you think you KNOW the reason, you get in trouble. You can think, "I have to marry this person, we're both Aries, and we have the same birthday, and we both like cake - it's meant to be!" I've gotten in trouble myself with 'magical thinking' like this (marriage number one, for instance)!

2. Destiny - yes maybe, and karma too, but if I start believing that I have the 'gift of instant awareness' or that others do - look out! And don't drink the Kool-Aid!

3. Almost all religions have some of this mystic mumbo jumbo, and sometimes I even feel 'the spirit'. But I remind myself, if there is a God (and I hope there is), how could I presume to know what the plan is? Instead of believing in 'destiny' I will try to be as aware as possible, make the best decisions, and be a rational human being!

Thanks, end of soapbox...

Does anyone remember the congressional hearings about SEED funding and how did that affect day to day operations at SEED towards the end of the SEED reign of terror?

It couldn't have effected much of the day to day things. Everything was donated. The building,the food (if you could call it that) transportation,the fostering of newcommers. All they had to do was keep the lights and the water on.

I'm guessing they kept you all in the dark and you probably had no idea there was anything going on in Congress regarding SEED?
