    Caledonia Heron: if a someone is near death and clutching to "you" how do they get to Being?
    Pema Pera: best to start well before dying
    Pema Pera: like what we are doing here
    Caledonia Heron: well, yes, optimally ... but that is not an option for this person
    Pema Pera: I don't think there is a single answer, in general, Cal
    Caledonia Heron: agreed
    Pema Pera: I would say: be present yourself, as much as you can, open up to Being, and be a conduit
    Caledonia Heron: yes, again, agreed

    Maxine Walden: I believe the main emotional experience which so moved me this morning was that in being open to just sit with what I feared were messages of disaster, that is just sitting, trusting in ‘being with’ that there might be a wider view, Cal, maybe that opening of space, a wider view which transformed ‘potential disaster’ into valuable information…guess that is what I felt grateful for and just felt I wanted to share it here…
    Pema Pera: that is a beautiful description of an inroad to Being
    Pema Pera: seen from our side that is
    Pema Pera: or of the way Being is available and in some direct sense reaching out to us
    Pema Pera: seen from Being’s side — to the extent you can put that into words
    Pema Pera: without making it too religious sounding
    Pema Pera: it is actually very simple and direct
    Pema Pera: Part of getting older seems to be to learn to just be open in situations of worry and anger and shame and all that, to trust what IS rather than whatever skills you may have acquired . . . .
    Maxine Walden: there is a simplicity to the experience, sort of like’ oh yes, it has been there in the background all the time’…
    Pema Pera: yes indeed!
    Pema Pera: to let reality speak for itself
    Pema Pera: the Universe, Being
    Pema Pera: whatever term you like to use as a pointer
    Pema Pera: I am so glad that we can share our experiences here, about those central aspects of reality!
    Maxine Walden: yes, and for me it brings awe and gratitude to have access to that ’simplicity’ as the more central reality.
    Pema Pera: yes, it is really awfully awesome!!

    Pema Pera: to let go of our own intentions and goals and plans is so important
    Pema Pera: but exactly how to do that without just shrugging and not caring is something we have to learn
    Pema Pera: Openness is a more positive term than emptiness
