Introduce Yourself

I agree with the others, and Baba's comment is spot on - dreadlocks should be hair you DON'T have to stress over or think about very much. No need to comb yours out...give it a few days before you make a for-sure decision, don't think about your hair...every time you start to fret over your hair, immediately picture a pretty flower or some object that makes you feel safe and happy.

Then just let your lovely locs be your friends and, like dear friends, accept them for who they are.

I love the concept of dread piercings. Something different and creative. Welcome to etsy, too! I've been a seller on etsy for almost a year & really enjoy running my shop.

The Weight?


General Questions

Thanks, SE. What we learn form our dreads amazes me. I realized, after posting my question above, that the times I feel the weight of my dreads...when it feels like my hair is being pulled...is when I am tired and need to lie down and rest. When I'm feeling refreshed and well-rested my dreads don;t feel heavy at all.

My hair's been talkin' to me!

The Weight?


General Questions

Hi dear ones, I've had my wonderful dreadlocks for many years. They are quite long. My only real concern/problem at this point is the weight of my locs. Perhaps I just have a sensitive scalp, but I wonder - does anyone else feel uncomfortable from the weight of your locs?

Solace of the Solitary


General Talk

Adam, I'm sorry for the loss of your grandmother.

I have lost many loved ones in my life, especially during the recent decade. Interestingly, my experience of being in the presence of loved ones as they passed was quite different from the one you've described. I saw tremendous peace and beauty on the faces of those who had just died. In some cases, the peace was extremely powerful.

Perhaps we perceive death as we perceive life, who knows. "I think, therefore I am....."

Solace of the Solitary


General Talk

Adam, I sense a lot of anxiety and fear in your belief system. I wonder about the intense need to place such limitations upon yourself. You certainly don;t need to respond to my musings; they are, after all, just thoughts that are in my mind.

Whoever wrote about the bible - shortly put, I've spent a number of decades studying biblical history, including living in Israel for some time to further my studies. The bible is a wonderful account of history, that's for sure. Everything else about it is up to interpretation due to translation being done in so many languages throughout time, and also because of alterations made by the Catholic church in the 10th century (stuff added in, stuff taken out). And when it comes right down to the nitty-gritty, no one knows anything about God's existence, what that means, doesn't mean, etc.

Last, regarding Native Americans in VietNam - my husband of 31 years is a Viet vet, my bil is, too, and I've spent all of my adult life around Viet vets. It is entirely true that oftentimes Native Americans were placed on point when the guys were humping the boonies.

This discussion is, in itself, a spiritual discussion. And an excellent one, too.
