    Pema Pera: after waking up, and before we put on our clothes, we first put on our body and habits and judgmental attitudes
    Pema Pera: if one can catch oneself before taking on all that, the moments after waking up are a gold mine
    Maxine Walden: that may be but I think that those ’still in bed ‘ moments come before putting on the trappings of the self
    Pema Pera: yes
    Pema Pera: that is what I meant
    Pema Pera: “catch oneself” I meant “what we really are”
    Pema Pera: ultimately Being
    Pema Pera: not what we normally consider ourselves to be
    Maxine Walden: yes, thought we were both appreciating those earliest moments are so ‘real,’ so Being; no a purer sense of just being
    Pema Pera: yes indeed!
    Pema Pera: In RL we can shop for clothes and try them on
    Pema Pera: in SL you also shop for shapes and skin and hair, to put on before clothes . . . .

    Pema Pera: But in RL, too, in the morning, we put on our shape and skin!
    Maxine Walden: it is so interesting to sometimes feel the cloud of doubts and uncertainties just settle as if they are clothes of some sort
    Pema Pera: yes, it is all on a continuum!
