Cool Communities

I would like to say a big THANK YOU! to everyone who read this post and joined up over at bdsm_lovers2. We had a huge influx of members from my f-list after that post, and it made my heart feel good. :) And if you haven't picked up dailyrumi yet (and you probably haven't), you seriously don't know what you're missing. A daily dose of Rumi can seriously change your world paradigm.

I have several new communities that I'm digging on lately, so I thought I'd spread the word.

Please take a look at mystic_cafe. It's maintained by one of my new friends, manifest_now, who turned out to be even cooler than her username suggested. mystic_cafe is a great place to discuss a myriad of metaphysical topics. Recent topics explore the afterlife, reincarnation, dreams, tarot, forgiveness, light/energy work... Good stuff. Bathe in it.

Also take a look at my favorite icon maker, little_shinies. little_shinies rocks the house. S/he is responsible for the icon I'm using in this post, which is my current favorite. little_shinies recently did a religious icon series and created several lovely Jesus and Dalai Lama icons that I requested. So many different gods and goddesses were represented - I even learned some new ones. Other recent goodies include gryphons, mermaids, faeries, dragons, angels, pulp fiction, food porn...(food_porn is yet another great place). If you join up at little_shinies, tell him/her who sent you. I'm secretly hoping to generate enough noise to be friended in return. (Shameless, I know)

god_and_sex is a really new community, and I'd love to see more members there. As you'd expect, this is a discussion group about religion and sexuality. god_and_sex popped up at an auspicious time in my life, as I was contemplating (and even discussing with a friend) how I would love to integrate my spirituality into my, er, private worship with my Beloved. This community has only a few members so far (4), but it seems to come from a predominantly Christian background. I would so love to see a more diverse mix - I want to hear what the Pagans and Quakers have to say! And Buddhists - Be Heard Now! What do the Sufis think? I know what Rumi would say:

Lovers share a sacred decree –
to seek the Beloved.
They roll head over heels,
rushing toward the Beautiful One
like a torrent of water.

* One Whisper of the Beloved

And one last newbie is viewsfromthetop. This is another BDSM group whose name pretty much speaks for itself. It seems to be a real open and respectful place, well moderated, and I'd love to see this one take off a little more, too.

Thanks for listening! I'm always glad to hear of more good groups, too, so let me know if you have a special gem that I've missed.

That god and sex group looks super interesting! I joined :)

Yippee! Thanks so much!

If you want your forum to be M/f only, don't call it "viewsfromthetop." Call it, like "viewsfromthemaletops." I can't get back those two minutes of my life.

Note that I'm not assuming you created it, I'm using the generic you there.

Gotcha. It says dominant females are welcome. It's just that the maintainers are a M/f M/s couple. They're friends of mine, and I feel it's better moderated and more open than several communities I've found out there. But it's still very new. I'm sure the members will begin to contribute more than just the owners, but the dynamics are still good so far. I like it.

May I add you? I follwed you over from viewsfromthetop.
May. 11th, 2006 03:47 pm (UTC)
Of course! Thanks so much. I've added you back. I don't like to be presumptious, so I only add people to the kinky filter if they specifically request it. If you want on, you can find the link in my profile.

I'll look forward to getting to know you better!

Long time no comment! I thought I would pop over and let you know that I joined your God and Sex community.
May. 11th, 2006 03:49 pm (UTC)
Hot damn!

You know, I've been wondering about you. I was contemplating nudging you soon. I'm glad to hear from you. :)

Thanks for joining up over there. I can tell it has the potential to be a great discussion group, but I'll be glad to hear some more voices.

I tried to update not too long ago, maybe 2 weeks or so and my entire post was eatten by LJ so I just gave up!
May. 11th, 2006 04:45 pm (UTC)
That sucks. They're supposed to have this auto-save feature now. You start typing and it should ask you, "Do you want to restore from draft?" or something like that.
May. 11th, 2006 04:50 pm (UTC)
It only freakin stored the first 2 lines!!!!!
May. 11th, 2006 04:52 pm (UTC)
Ha ha! I'd give up, too. :P
May. 11th, 2006 03:39 am (UTC)
Wow, you pimping me out!? LOL

I'm glad you thinking my belly-button contemplating is cool. lol

May. 11th, 2006 03:51 pm (UTC)
Could you not tell I'm a pimp? LOL But seriously - of course! I try to pimp well and often, if I find a group or journal worth spreading the news about. I've actually made it a goal to try to do more often. I've done it too rarely in the past. Your community is one of my new favorites. :)
May. 12th, 2006 06:07 am (UTC)
Well thank you that is most kind. I would trust anyone you send over to be a cool and open minded sort. :)

May. 11th, 2006 05:21 pm (UTC)
Hi you. I love that you're so activily involved in LJ and so willing to share. Will be picking up some of these. Especially under my new LJ...;-)
May. 11th, 2006 05:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad that you'll be joining up! Do I know your new LJ name? I have so many friends with multiple journals that I can't really track whose who. If I'm not on your other one, I'd sure like to be. ;)
May. 11th, 2006 07:24 pm (UTC)
