Would you consider continuing that ONLINE during the pandemic with meetings continuing in people's homes AFTER the pandemic?

After 9/11/2001, I closed it down. Too many people were afraid. Conspiracies abounded. I had a core group..... even they saw the writing on the wall.

I had 3 corporations and this was one of them.


Another corporation was a newspaper. After 6 months from 9/11/2001, I closed that down. Advertising sales plummeted.

The third corporation survived. I put my heart and soul into that to keep it a float. Similar businesses like that failed.

That's what you need to do if you want to keep your religion alive John, come out with a line of breakfast cereals. That would do the trick.


It seems as if you may have had too many "Quaker Oats" this morning and are really "feeling your oats" today.

I am sorry to hear that those efforts were closed down as there really is a need for such organizations.

Would you be interested in setting up a CHAT group here in the Spirituality room at a time convenient to others in order to discuss this further in real-time?

Your advice is excellent. It worked for me as well as for many of my interfaith friends.

50 - Whoah!

Only enough energy to tell others what they should do.
That way I don't tire myself out.

Makes sense though, people will always have to eat, and man does not live on oatmeal alone.

This is true. "Man does not live on oatmeal alone".

I have visited a considerable number of countries.

I just do not know how many.

All I know is I was constantly going to the Embassy to get more pages in my Passports.
