I think with Pyschopaths double figures would get yer into the club.

With Sociopaths it's not about the counting (Sociopaths don't care. either way ).

Re: Why you should never give up on dreams.

I think that the OP is so full of love and understanding and sweetness that he makes Mother Theresa look like Keith Richards.

Re: Why you should never share your dreams.

This thread has taken a strange turn........


To get back on topic - I think the thread should be retitled:-

"Why you should never share your dreams."

That mostly because will always be a long line of people just waiting to p#ss all over them .

Re: Why you should never give up on dreams.

just read through this whole tread and all i can say is fair play to the op as if you dont ask you wont recieve. give the guy a break and dont read more into things than need be. people now a days are so focused on what the cost of things are and put monitary value on everything when really things are only worth what someone else will pay for it. heres one for all those people so concerned with money if you were dropped in the north pole with a million dollars what would you do with it
? burn it to keep yourself warm cause really money is worth nothing . hey if i had a boat spare i,d give it to you..............best of luck

This guy is far from being a dreamer, he has his two feet on the ground . He is just a profiteer, a scam artist badly disguized in a new age low level philosopher.
Not sure how he is doing all that . He doesn't even want a boat at the moment (or for the last 2 years), free or not.........

Just have a look at it and you'll see.
A link would have been useful........

His post seems pretty "normal" to me - or at least not wayyy out of the ballpark. Cynical to you maybe, pragmatic when boots on the ground........Admittedly my travels never took me down to Bali / Indonesian, so if it turns out that they are in fact bastions of legal propriety then I will apologise. and will also eat my hat .

I know Indonesia, i know Bali, i have been gal manager for a multinational for south East Asia during a full a decade based in Singapore.
The point is not that what he is describing is true or not, it is the way he embraced it so vividly.
Pragmatic when boots on the ground? Yes , my point exactly! How do you fit that with disinterested dreamer? Totally antinomic for me
The guy is a fake.

Alec out.

Because many people's minds are trapped in fear, doubt, disbelief, and negativity, they are a prisoners of their own minds. Fear is the dominate force. That's all. Not one person has sent me a PM asking about what many would consider a dream of a lifetime. Not one. Why? One person who is trusted on CF could PM me, even a trusted mod. Verify, done. Then everyone knows. How difficult is that to do?
Fair call! And I have to agree about the fear thing too!
