    Pema Pera: how about doing YSBS right now, say half a minute You Seeing and half a minute Being Seeing, roughly?
    Pema Pera: So the first half minute you become more aware of how you normally see the world, you in the center, with a cone-shaped field of vision in front of you ; in the second half you let Being see, whatever that may mean, not trying to steer it, not telling Being what to see (not helping God, as I told Adams :) — and “seeing” for Being is obviously not literal, physical, Being doesn’t have our kind of physical eye sight
    Pema Pera: so take your time!
    Pema Pera: more than 30 seconds perfectly fine too
    Pema Pera: later it naturally packs into 9 seconds or so, after some practice
    Pema Pera: or less than 9 seconds, quite possibly

    Wol Euler: I see two realities, one of them very flat; in both I see myself. I see an appalling mess with myself sitting in a small cleared space at its center. I see toys and distractions in the place I call my office, and note that even while “playing” in SL I am distracting myself from this distraction from working.
    Wol Euler: I note without seeing it, that this exercise makes my hearing and bodily senses very acute! I am aware of my posture, and that my shirt has come untucked at the back, there is a breeze accross my kidneys.
    Wol Euler: so far only YS
    Pema Pera: very clear and recognizable, yes

    Another pause, while Wol was letting the BS exploration happen.

    Wol Euler: Being sees an island, and person who is actually comfortable on it. A person who is very hard on herself, highly judgemental, setting standards that she cannot achieve withiin the timeframe that she sets herself.
    Wol Euler: Being sees a pesron who is actually quite satisfied with herself and her life, but who will not say so.
    Wol Euler interjects, funny how Being has such a zoomed-out view.
    Pema Pera: (may I ask, how does she react by being seen so intimately by Being?)
    Wol Euler: Actually, it feels fine, it feels … free.
    Wol Euler: it feels like a child being let out of the house after a week of rain.
    Pema Pera: :)
    Wol Euler: Being sees the person surrounded by other people, their little bubbles touching and rubbing and sometimes blending.
    Pema Pera: wonderful images
    Wol Euler is suddenly getting teary, in a happy way.
    Pema Pera: oohhh
    Wol Euler: the connection
    Pema Pera: melting is another way of subtracting . . . .
    Pema Pera: letting go . . . . .
    Wol Euler: mind you, I do get teary at the slightest provocation.
    Wol Euler: (covering her tracks)
    Pema Pera: :)
    Pema Pera: Being is the slightest — and the largest :)

    Wise Wol words about moderation:

    Wol Euler: I could do this exercise. I won’t set it as a task or a target, I will just keep it in mind as a possibility and let it happen now and then, as the moment arises.
    Pema Pera: perfect, that’s a very good approach, I think
    Pema Pera: drink when thirsty
    Wol Euler: yes, but also avoiding giving myself yet another stick for my own back.
    Pema Pera: very important
    Wol Euler: If I say “ten times a week” and only do nine, I would be mad at myself.
    Pema Pera: haha, yes — the whole point of PaB is NOT to give time overload
