St. Petersburg Seed, December 15, 1973, 10 days before my 16th birthday.  I sang Jingle Bells because every day I was straight it was like Christmas AND my birthday!  My oldcomers' parents bought me a nice birthday gift and Christmas gift.  Closing in on 31 years.  Unbelievable.

Anon, you were there when I was. You must remember the big christmas party.  I was already an oldcomer and you were on perhaps the second row?

Gawd how I hated that  place, especially at christmas! Every day I was straight in the Seed was like hell to me, not christmas.

If you want to talk, perhaps we know each other. My email is rocky93@tampabay.rr.com.

I will be out of town and unable to check this until monday.

Peace.

I don't think you'd want to talk to me about our shared time at the Seed because we have totally different opinions.  I wrote a positive "testimonial" about my post-Seed success, Army life, and family, and there was a flurry of bickering about it.  In fact, here's a quote that I found a bit unpleasant from one of the posts that followed mine:

"Testimonials to me are almost meaningless because every group including the KKK, the american Nazi party, right down to your local AA branch will have people ranting and raving about how much they love it."

I find it interesting that folks in this forum talk about how they hated being "come down" on by fellow Seedlings while on the program, and then it's done very quickly within this forum if anyone posts something the rest don't agree with.  I've seen people who have positive things to say about the Seed be compared to members of the Third Reich.

No one can tell me that my life post-Seed is less productive than the life I would have led without the Seed.  I was truly a screwed up girl who was on a highway to hell.  I thank Art and the Seed for putting me on a path that led to a good life.  I figured out the rest of it pretty much by myself, and by God's grace, but I give the beginning credit to the Seed.

So, therefore, I don't feel it's profitable to socialize, but thanks anyway. You probably didn't know me, because I was one of the few from Clearwater/Largo area.

Robin,
         I started the program march of 73 on SR84  3I years ago , glad to hear life  is good for you,
Where do yo live in CA ?
People forget how crazy the times were back then,  I needed the Seed , I ran from the seed twice ,  they called me by phone and asked me back, because they knew I was confused and desperate and probably not going to survive. I needed that call. That call came , and it saved my life. They accepted me back with open arms. I am forever grateful to Art and  Shelly & staff
We sat in the same meetings if you went to the Seed on SR84 73 to 74
Where did you live in florida?, I lived in hollywood before I went to the seed.  We probably crossed paths hitchhiking about.


It's nice to know some people from the Seed live in California.

Hey rjfro22, I live in Long Beach, CA. Have lived in CA since 1975.  Have visited Clearwater, FL a few times since moving but not for a long time now. Yes, I was desperate also and condsidered the Seed my "last chance" at survival...not by their observations but mine alone.  Where do you live?  Email me privately if you want.

Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path. You must climb towards the Truth. It cannot be \'stepped down\'
