    Pema Pera: I was reading through older chat logs, and found an interesting quote from Calvino, a week ago, Dec. 20, 1 pm:
    Calvino Rabeni: The things appear just before they can be dropped - so I barely see the things I "cannot drop"
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, it is about the possible meanings of belief I suppose
    Calvino Rabeni: Also perhaps same for perception
    Pema Pera: yes, seeing and dropping seem to be two sides of the same coin
    Pema Pera: you can't drop what you can't see yet
    Pema Pera: and also while you can't drop it, being glued to it, it is likely you can't see it either: so what to do? :-)
    Pema Pera: as I see it, it's like a bootstrapping method: you begin to drop a little bit, you don't quite know what, in the 9-sec; then you begin to see a little bit more, vague misty contours, you don't quite know what yet; but somehow these give you a bit more courage and incentive to explore dropping further; then seeing yet more; etc.
    Calvino Rabeni: yes, gradual revealing
    Pema Pera: most religions have adult language learning approaches, with dictionaries and list of does and don'ts and lots of theory -- PaB is more child-like in its approach, perhaps
    Pema Pera: and the two are complementary, of course
