* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Ack, sorry guys. I meant to respond sooner. How does tomorrow (Tuesday) sound? Would 8pm Eastern time be an okay compromise between the East and West coasts?

I'll be there!

 
My stomach is really upset from lunch- I puked most of it up, so I'm feeling a bit better, but really tired. I'm going to take a nap, and hopefully I won't sleep through my alarm for chat tonight. If I don't make it, I'm very sorry!

Here's the log from last night's FAQ chat!
 
FlameKeeping FAQ
Tuesday, 20 September 2011, 08:00 PM Eastern (US)

You say, "so, first item is..."
FierFlye says, "first question, what is FlameKeeping?"
You say, "oh man"
You say, "Shad has an answer to that on the website...let me look it up"
You say, "FlameKeeping is a pantheistic religious philosophy. It starts from the premise that we are all Divine, all part of the same greater Whole, and then asks questions about what that means and how to live inside that.""
You say, "that's from the site."
FierFlye says, "are you logging this? can you?"
You say, "sure!"
You say, "we could also incorporate the things from the "You Might be a FlameKeeper" post."
FierFlye says, "that sounds like a good idea"
ierFlye says, "why is it called FlameKeeping?"
You say, "I think we have an answer to that too"
veggiewolf goes to the site...
You say, "well, I know she answered it in the SIG..."
You say, "FlameKeeper because I've always seen soul as flame - and we're taking care of our own soul and the greater Soul of everything. We keep the Flame.""
You say, "that's her answer - can we tweak that?"
FierFlye says, "err..yes"
FierFlye says, "hmm.."
You say, "soul as Flame with two parts?"
You say, "internal soul and external soul?"
You say, "or...inward, outward..."
veggiewolf flails.
You say, "keeping the Soul"
You say, "tenders of the Soul?"
FierFlye says, "We see the flame is a metaphor for the soul"
You say, "ok"
You say, "and as we tend the Soul, we tend the Universe"
You say, "?"
FierFlye says, "by nourishing our soul and improving the Universe, we are keeping the sacred flame"
You say, "there you go"
FierFlye says, "why is the K capitalized?"
You say, "because the Keepers are as important as the Flame"
FierFlye says, "for one, to distinguish from Brigidine, but also that, yes"
You say, "and also to distinguish ourselves from the Celts"
FierFlye says, "sweet"
veggiewolf winks.
veggiewolf laughs at the next question.
You say, "do I have to burn a candle?"
Gelfling has connected.
Gelfling waves.
You say, "Hi Gelfling"
You paged FierFlye with 'should we move to the Shoe?'
FierFlye says, "hey Gelfling, we are having a FlameKeeping chat"
Jenett has disconnected.
Gelfling says, "Oh that's right, it's Tuesday."
FierFlye says, "you are welcome to join if you like"
You say, "it is Tuesday"
You say, "emphasis on is"
You say, "so, do I have to burn a candle?"
FierFlye says, "No. A FlameKeeper's rituals are improving the Dark Flame, Bright Flame, and Universe
You say, "I like that!"
FierFlye says, "there are no other set rituals"
You say, "the next question, about core beliefs, we can take from the You Might Be post"
Devo wonders back in from the conference room wing.
Devo has arrived.
You say, "I think we answered it there."
You say, "Devo!"
Devo says, "yo"
You say, "Ca va?"
FierFlye says, "hey Devo"
You say, "so, we're up to..."
You say, "?"
FierFlye says, "is the dark flame negative"
Devo says, "I don't think it is."
You say, "No! The Dark Flame represents our inner selves, our inner soul. It is Dark because to know oneself truly is to delve into the dark."
You say, "one has to step through the doorway into the Dark to see what is there"
Devo says, "Step through, and let your eyes adjust"
You say, "oh yeah"
You say, "feel the comfortable Dark, breathe it in, and embrace it."
Devo says, "be one with it XD"
You say, "absolutely"
FierFlye says, "absolutely"
You say, "tonight, if I can, I'm going through the doorway"
You say, "as an aside"
Devo says, "Define going through?"
"well, I've been dreaming of a doorway that I've not gone through
You say, "well, I've been dreaming of a doorway that I've not gone through"
You say, "I tried to ward it with statues of Ganesh...in the dream"
You say, "and Wepwawet was on the other side"
You say, "so, when I next dream of it, I'm going through."
Devo says, "Cool. You'll have to keep me posted"
You say, "I will."
Devo says, "I felt like I was opening a door last week when working on my dancing meditation work"
Devo says, "it was really really odd."
You say, "really?"
You say, "share?"
Devo says, "Well, my movements started to get more... instinctual, less thought out. It's like my brain was letting go"
Devo says, "and when I would let go, the room would feel different. Suddenly, it's like there were entities there, things around me. You could see movement out of hte corner of your eye. Or it'd feel like someone was standing behind you, etc."
Devo says, "I was never able to completely let go- I got interrupted."
FierFlye says, "wow"
You say, "how fucking cool is that???"
You say, "that's the Divine right there, and Big Red watching (probably)"
You say, "that's amazing"
Devo says, "it was different than normal"
Devo says, "I'm used to set watching like a creeper. Maybe the addition of Asar is what is changing it."
Devo says, "Once my shins have healed up (again) I hope to try again."
FierFlye says, "are you using some kind of guide for your meditation? or just turning on some music and dancing?"
You say, "I want to try that"
Devo says, "Just dancing. As long as I can, until my body can't do no more"
You say, "what music?"
Devo says, "Just dancing. As long as I can, until my body can't do no more"
"what music?
You say, "what music?"
Devo says, "It varies. Usually it's music with a beat- things you could find on the radio"
Devo says, "some japanese stuff."
You say, "Japanese pop?"
Devo says, "Yeah, usually"
You say, "do you know Shonen Knife?"
veggiewolf is totally sidetracked now.
Devo says, "lol, Nope"
You say, "ohhhhh...find it."
FierFlye says, "i think that totally sounds worth trying. the dancing I mean"
You say, "you know what would be seriously cool? A group dance meditation"
Devo says, "I will look into it"
Devo says, "Fier, I love it."   
FierFlye says, "i think that totally sounds worth trying. the dancing I mean"
Devo says, "It opens me up to so many things. grounds me out like nothing else. Let's me see and feel things I can't do any other way."
You say, "I seriously need to do this"
Devo says, "lol. It's definitely worth trying, IMO"
Devo says, "Just so I'm on the same page- are we doing the FAQ thing here, or in FK or not at all? lol"
FierFlye says, "shall we move on to the next question?"
Devo says, "I can't guaantee how long I'll be on either"
FierFlye says, "we are doing it here"
You say, "we're doing it here"
FierFlye says, "we are onto..."
You say, "sure!"
FierFlye says, "are there any holidays?"
You say, "Not particular to FlameKeeping"
Devo says, "lmao. go me XD"
You say, "if one's other tradition has holidays, go for it!"
Devo says, "Holidays- every day is a holiday"
Devo says, "Holidays- every day is a holiday"
Devo says, "but more seriously, I'd say no. Though I think that perhaps it's important to keep track of seasons, or connected to the world around you- which culd be classified as holidays."
veggiewolf nods.
You say, "but FlameKeeping itself has no holidays"
Devo says, "technically no"
You say, "what rituals or practices are involved?"
Devo says, "Living? Doing? Do those count?"
You say, "I think there are no particular practices except recognizing the Divine"
You say, "and trying to Improve"
Devo says, "Yeah, I would agree. Perhaps adding introspection, but that kinda goes hand in hand with recognizing the divine"
Devo says, "and improvement"
You say, "Fier? you there?"
FierFlye says, "yes, just thinking"
You say, " 'kay."
FierFlye says, " i think we stick with the no particular holidays"
FierFlye says, "every day is just as important as the next"
You say, "I agree."
Devo says, "as do I"
You say, "rituals, we should all adopt animals"
FierFlye says, "hehe"
You say, "esp kitties"
Devo says, "XD Done!"
FierFlye says, "yes, the next question is, "what rituals or practices are involved?""
You say, "except Renegade so needs a dog of his very own."
FierFlye says, "heh"
You say, "I'll bet he'll tell you that."
You say, "how many cats, Devo?"
Devo says, "2, because that's all the apt will let me have"
You say, "awwwww"
Devo says, " I want to foster one day"
You say, "me too...but I know I cannot because I'll want to keep them all"
You say, "I so admire you, Fier."
FierFlye says, "aww"
Devo says, "I am too... tempermental to work at a shelter. So fostering seems like the next best thing"
FierFlye says, "it's pretty cool"
Devo says, "I'd go btwn crying and killing people for doing this."
veggiewolf nods.
Devo says, "lol, I'll probably have that issue, too. But I'ld like to try."
You say, "do we have time for another question or two?"
Devo says, "if it's fast, I can stay :)"
FierFlye says, "well we haven't answered the last one, and it's a bit more complicated"
FierFlye says, "so let's finish that one"
You say, "so, no rituals"
FierFlye says, "but practices, yes"
You say, "yes"
FierFlye says, "nourising the flames and improving"
You say, "recognizing the Divine"
FierFlye says, "so how do we word that?"
FierFlye says, "yes, in ourselves and others"
You say, "it is the "job" of the FlameKeeper to look for the Divine in all things."
You say, "in oneself, in others, and in the workings of the Universe"
You say, "and in recognizing it, to look for ways to help it improve"
You say, "or is that too pollyanna?"
Devo says, "I think it sounds good."
Devo says, "Well, I have to jet :( If you want, you can PM me the last quesiton/s, and I can answer them later this evening. Sorry I couldn't stay longer"
You say, "no probs - we'll have to do another chat"
Devo says, "and by answer, I mean add my input"
veggiewolf waves.
FierFlye says, "byes!"
Devo says, "See ya later everyone! :)"
"Fier, should we do another one next week?
You say, "Fier, should we do another one next week?"
Devo has disconnected.
You say, "and I can post the log from this week?"
FierFlye says, "yeah, for sure!"
You say, "okeydokey"
