    Bertram Jacobus: "all and nothing" ? ;-)
    adoro Rhapsody: well that is not to nwrite in words
    Darren Islar: hi all :)
    Bertram Jacobus: hi darren
    adoro Rhapsody: and u have to involute
    Lacey Setsuko: but we talk in wods, dont we?
    Calvino Rabeni: Our main topic is really - our own lives - meaning that the group favors a contemplative and "experiential" way of looking at things
    Io Larkspur: Hi, Darren.
    adoro Rhapsody: ok
    Bruce Mowbray: Yo, Darren.
    Calvino Rabeni: So what comes to mind about Tao?
    Bruce Mowbray: Or, what comes to your experience concerning Tao, adoro?
    adoro Rhapsody: just inner peace
    Bruce Mowbray: Yo, Fox.
    Io Larkspur: Hello, Fox.
    Calvino Rabeni: I see the audio bubble above adoro there, but don't have my sound on
    Calvino Rabeni: since most of the meetings here are text chat
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi Fox
    Bertram Jacobus: hello fox
    Darren Islar: just background noise
    adoro Rhapsody: just birds singing
    Fox Monacular: hello everyone
    adoro Rhapsody: in background
    Fox Monacular: sorry I can't stay (dream workshop)
    Bertram Jacobus: hi and bye fow ;-)
    Fox Monacular: :)
    adoro Rhapsody: bye
    Bruce Mowbray: ye, Fox,
    Darren Islar: but maybe you better turn it of then adoro
    Bruce Mowbray: Bye. Fox.
    adoro Rhapsody: do u have also inner peace experiences ?
    adoro Rhapsody: i dont know how to shut down voice
    Calvino Rabeni: There's usually a button to turn it on and off
    Calvino Rabeni: on my viewer it says Speak and is just right of the text entry box
    Sartre Placebo: hey everyone
    Bertram Jacobus: right down you have the "talk" button, left beside a little lock - click it for on and off adoro
    Bruce Mowbray: Yo, Sartre.
    Darren Islar: hi Sartre
    Io Larkspur: Hello, Sartre.
    Bertram Jacobus: hi sartre ! ;-)
    Lacey Setsuko: are we sure we will talk about tao'
    Lacey Setsuko: btw, tao and dao , is it difference, or just dif spellig?
    Bertram Jacobus: topices often can change , also few times lacey ...
    Calvino Rabeni: just spelling
    Lacey Setsuko: ok
    Bertram Jacobus: only diff. spelling
    Bertram Jacobus: and the more people are together, especially in chats, the more topics can change or some run at the same time etc. ... ;-9
    Calvino Rabeni: One thing I like about tao philosophy, is the idea that there is this abstract "big Tao" that does not really have any qualities, and then, everything else has its own nature or "little tao"
    Calvino Rabeni: Part of the idea of tao, I think, is that one can find peace by going along with the many conditions of little tao in the world
    Bertram Jacobus: never heard that - "little tao" ! :-)
    adoro Rhapsody: inner voyage
    adoro Rhapsody: instead of outer voyage
    Bruce Mowbray: The little Tao of this sim will have us be in silence for 90 second s in about 2 minutes.
    Calvino Rabeni: The idea gives a kind of way to respect everything that happens, letting it be as it is
    Lacey Setsuko: is it ok to talk about that what is beyound words? ...well i heard about IG ZEN, is it somehow related, Calvino?
    Io Larkspur: Let it be.
    adoro Rhapsody: wow
    adoro Rhapsody: thats great
    Lacey Setsuko: i meant BIG ZEN ;p
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Bertram Jacobus: and adoro - late answer : i would say : yes - don't we all have them (inner peace experiences) ...
    adoro Rhapsody: TAO says there is no defference between big or small
    Darren Islar: whatever it means :)
    adoro Rhapsody: so size doesnt matter
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    --BELL--


    Qt Core: hi all
    Bertram Jacobus: nut nevertheless : i like those words from you of the little tao of the 90 seconds here (!) :-))
    Darren Islar: hi QT :)
    Bertram Jacobus: hi qt ! :-)
    Io Larkspur: Hello, Qt.
    adoro Rhapsody: hi qt
    Bruce Mowbray: Yo, Qt.
    Bruce Mowbray: We are discussing Big and Little Tao.
    Bruce Mowbray: Little.
    Lacey Setsuko: well, since we PUT this into words, we can make some kinda "reflection"of words'quality towards QUALITY, otherwise NO MEANING TO TALK ABOUT UNTALKATIVE ISSUE^^
    adoro Rhapsody: TAO means u make no difference
    adoro Rhapsody: betwen small and big
    Qt Core: didn't knew there were two
    adoro Rhapsody: TAO is in unifying
    adoro Rhapsody: not splitting
    Bertram Jacobus: same here qt ;-)
    adoro Rhapsody: me too
    Bertram Jacobus: but "why not" !? ;-)
    adoro Rhapsody: its human to make differences
    Bertram Jacobus: playing with it ... must not be wrong (?) ... :-)
    Darren Islar: two Toas doesn't mean they are separated
    Lacey Setsuko: have you heard abot "wheels "in the Buddism?
    adoro Rhapsody: ok
    Calvino Rabeni: Tao roughly means the unifying force behind all the complex apearances
    Bruce Mowbray: Saying "big" and "little" Tao is a sort of play.
    Bertram Jacobus: not yet until a few seconds lacey (?) ;-)
    adoro Rhapsody: thats right
    Bertram Jacobus: + before ...
    Bruce Mowbray: When a child, we used to "play little" and "play big."
    adoro Rhapsody: ok
    Bertram Jacobus: i know a sentence "can you name it, it isn't the TAO" ... :o)
    Bruce Mowbray: Playing "little" meant that we played with little toys... like little soldiers...
    adoro Rhapsody: that did i mean
    Zon Quar: heya all
    Bruce Mowbray: but playing "big" meant that we played as if we WERE soldiers ourselves.
    adoro Rhapsody: hi
    Darren Islar: hi Zon :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Zon.
    Bertram Jacobus: hi zon ! :-)
    Qt Core: hi zon
    Io Larkspur: Hello, Zon.
    Lacey Setsuko: Mahayana how is called else?;p
    Bruce Mowbray: The "little vehicle."
    Bertram Jacobus: the big one (!)
    Bertram Jacobus: little is hinayana
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh -- so size DOES matter!
    Darren Islar: not as size
    Calvino Rabeni: If you look at wikipedia about Tao, you can see that the general idea kind of "unfolds" to give meaning to all the complex appearances
    Calvino Rabeni: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tao
    Lacey Setsuko: SO'^^
    Bertram Jacobus: in relativity - yes - absolute : no
    Bruce Mowbray: OK -- so it means Big Vehicle. What then....?
    Bertram Jacobus: what then ? what do you mean plz bruce ?
    Darren Islar: That's Buddhism, not Tao
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. not taoism
    Bruce Mowbray: Well, the idea was itroduced as Tao -- then switched to big and little vehicles -- so I'm wondering what next...?
    Lacey Setsuko: well, it will be difficult to "open"all this meaning < BUT SMALL and BIG appears:p
    Darren Islar: the diamant one :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Connecting tao and inner peace?
    Bruce Mowbray: yes... adoro was going there.
    Bertram Jacobus: ah ! :o) - we'll see bruce ? ... ;-)
    Bertram Jacobus: (and ty) ...
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Bruce Mowbray: please say more, adoro.
    adoro Rhapsody: i am in listening mode
    adoro Rhapsody: u give me harmony
    adoro Rhapsody: inner peace
    Lacey Setsuko: IF to follow all "vehicles" == there is no hinu, buddism, christian, islam hebrew etc, there is MIND which is READY FOR..
    Bruce Mowbray: No -- I don't mean say something in "voice" -- I mean, say more on the topic of Tao and inner peace.
    adoro Rhapsody: well TAO is inner voyage to find inner peace
    adoro Rhapsody: so u dont have to go eldsewhere
    adoro Rhapsody: alesewhere
    Darren Islar: ' Lacey
    Io Larkspur: Wherever you are, there it is.
    Calvino Rabeni: Taoism is often considered a "nature" philosophy also
    Io Larkspur: No matter where you go, there you are.
    adoro Rhapsody: its not conumung fuel for driving a car
    adoro Rhapsody: consuming
    Lacey Setsuko: adoro, it seems you already DONE with this tao topic, just wana check it out with others', im right?^^
    adoro Rhapsody: right
    adoro Rhapsody: im done
    Lacey Setsuko: ok"P
    Bertram Jacobus: great
    Bruce Mowbray: Tao - it seems to me - is a very evolved form of pantheism.
    Darren Islar is lifting an eyebrow
    Calvino Rabeni: I see what you mean
    Bruce Mowbray: A very "high" honoring of Nature in all her ways.
    --BELL--


    Io Larkspur: I do wish I could stay -- I have a feeling this discussion is going to be quite relevant to my own life -- But my break at work is over and I have to go back to work now.
    adoro Rhapsody: ok bye
    Io Larkspur: Thanks, everyone.
    Darren Islar: Bye Io
    Calvino Rabeni: Glad you stopped by lo
    Bertram Jacobus: bye lo (for the log ;-) - come again ! :-)
    adoro Rhapsody: wonderful this opportunity to talk deeply
    Bruce Mowbray: Someone raised an eyebrow just before the break.
    Darren Islar: I did
    Bruce Mowbray: and. . . ?
    Calvino Rabeni: I thought Darren had a point of view on pantheism and taoism
    Bruce Mowbray: yes. go one, please.
    Calvino Rabeni: or was it just "say more"
    Bruce Mowbray: on.
    Darren Islar: about lacey's remark, I don't know who brought up the topic of Tao
    Bertram Jacobus: hi babbi - take a seat with us if you like ! :-)
    adoro Rhapsody: me
    Bruce Mowbray: ADORO, i THINK.
    Bruce Mowbray: YES.
    Bruce Mowbray: oooops. caps on...
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, babbi.
    Lacey Setsuko: adoro wanted to check his mind with other regarding tao, i guess
    Darren Islar: then why if you seem to know all about it?
    adoro Rhapsody: ok
    adoro Rhapsody: just hearing of others
    adoro Rhapsody: minds
    adoro Rhapsody: i am new here sorry
    Bertram Jacobus: i love such talks ...
    Bertram Jacobus: and ty for it adoro
    Lacey Setsuko: yes, i tink this how we "feed"our minds after all and this is how we are
    adoro Rhapsody: ok
    Bruce Mowbray: adoro asks us to share our 'experience' with Tao. . .
    Bruce Mowbray: he also said that Tao gave him a sense of peace.
    Darren Islar: okay
    Bertram Jacobus: and i love also when people are really knowing (!) ... - hm
    Lacey Setsuko: BUT are we ready to "hear" something what is out of already "prepared" mind?:)
    adoro Rhapsody: i think darren is right
    adoro Rhapsody: maybe he can give an issue he wanna talk about
    Darren Islar: that's okay
    Calvino Rabeni: Feeding the mind is a good topic also
    Bruce Mowbray: Seeing that we "have" a prepared mind is especially good to see.
    Calvino Rabeni: One might feed it "knowledge of tao"
    Bertram Jacobus: so many topics ! ... knowing, feeding ... :-) tao ... doubts ...
    Bruce Mowbray: don't forget 'pantheism".
    Lacey Setsuko: :P
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Calvino Rabeni: A bert, it is just one topic :)
    Lacey Setsuko: i guess after all it comes to the one topic - MIND^^
    Bruce Mowbray: Experiencing is as One Topic. . . Isn't that a central tenet of Taoism?
    Bertram Jacobus: bruce : the na'vi say : "it's not easy to feed a mind which is already filled" ... ;-)
    Calvino Rabeni: I think so, Bruce
    Darren Islar: I think Bert that was my point :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Ahhh. Indeed.
    Bertram Jacobus: whaow darren - hadn't guessed that - (nice!) :-))
    Calvino Rabeni: The navi got that from zen - it is the full teacup story
    Bruce Mowbray: But feeding does not necessarily mean pouring information from one vessel into another.
    Darren Islar: buddhism in general
    Calvino Rabeni: True
    Bruce Mowbray: It could be sharing of . . . Being.
    adoro Rhapsody: wow amazing you guys are talking
    Calvino Rabeni: Suppose, you wanted to feed your mind, knowledge of Tao - how could that be done?
    Darren Islar: It seems to me there are a few full cups here
    adoro Rhapsody: about all things i am interested in
    Bruce Mowbray: some empty some full some hal;d empty some half full.
    Bruce Mowbray: half.
    adoro Rhapsody: tao zen full and half full
    adoro Rhapsody: when u have discussions about cup full or half full
    Bertram Jacobus: and i have also "flowing" in my mind ...
    adoro Rhapsody: it means u have a cup that is too l;arge
    adoro Rhapsody: its a luxury pronblem
    adoro Rhapsody: problem
    Qt Core: rl calling, bye all have cup, ops fun ;-)
    adoro Rhapsody: bye
    Bruce Mowbray: Walk in Tao, Qt.
    Bertram Jacobus: bye qt that was short cu soon *wave* :-)
    Lacey Setsuko: i think it is irrelevant adoro, just my thinking
    Darren Islar: bye QT
    Bruce Mowbray: I feel that adoro has passion -- and I really like that.
    Lacey Setsuko: we all had experience to see how water FLOWS on the spill
    Bruce Mowbray: the oil spill, yes.
    Calvino Rabeni: true, that is tao of water
    Lacey Setsuko: how does water flows on the spill?
    --BELL--


    Lacey Setsuko: i saw water flowing "without knowing WHERE TO" and without pushing FORWARD TO" ..
    Bertram Jacobus: oops - adoro disappeared ! - ah - there you are again - wb ! :-)
    Bruce Mowbray: welcome back, adoro!
    adoro Rhapsody: i had a black out
    Bertram Jacobus: sounds nice lacey - did it feel so ? (nice) ? :-)
    Bruce Mowbray: Perhaps there is also a 'flow' of new awareness throughout mankind - due to his horrific experience.
    Bruce Mowbray: this.
    Bertram Jacobus: yes bruce - i consider such, too (!) :-)
    Bruce Mowbray: It is as if the planet were hemorraging.
    Lacey Setsuko: IF it is not a river (water in the FRAME) it flows AS IT IS:)
    Lacey Setsuko: i have to go,
    Bruce Mowbray: bye, Lacey.
    Darren Islar: bye lacey
    Bertram Jacobus: bye lacey - come again if you like plz :-)
    Lacey Setsuko: have sharp mind and free heart to feel your life dears
    adoro Rhapsody: bye lacey
    Lacey Setsuko: bye bye
    Bruce Mowbray: It flows until it comes up against larger frames -- the beaches along the coast.
    Bruce Mowbray: as well as the 'frames' of people's minds.
    Bertram Jacobus: what means "hemorraging" plz bruce ? don't find it in my dictionary ...
    Bruce Mowbray: bleeding profusely.
    Bruce Mowbray: I probably misspelled it.
    Bertram Jacobus: ah ... okay ... ty ... *sigh a bit* ...
    Bruce Mowbray: BLEEDING really bad.
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Bruce Mowbray: Of course, we were already "bleeding" the planet by drawing out the oil in the first place.
    Bruce Mowbray: adoro keeps blacking out.
    Bertram Jacobus: heyy wol ! :-)
    adoro Rhapsody: just listening
    Wol Euler: hello everyone, sorry I'm latre
    Bruce Mowbray: No sorry --- that was just my viewer -- sorry, adoro.
    Wol Euler: -r
    Darren Islar: hi Wol :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Wol.
    Bertram Jacobus: latre like sartre ? ;-)
    Calvino Rabeni: The knowledge of ocean currents has grown a lot in recent years
    Calvino Rabeni: The more one looks at ocean currents, the more the earth looks like a large cell or organism
    Wol Euler: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: with a whole circulation system
    Bruce Mowbray: and so it is.
    Bruce Mowbray: so -- the whole ear, in a way, is like the ying/yand symbol of Tao.
    Bruce Mowbray: earth.
    Bruce Mowbray: yang.
    Bertram Jacobus: sry - i'll leave too now - ty - was a very nice meeting again - have a great time and - may all beings be happy plz ! :-)

    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    adoro Rhapsody: every
    Wol Euler: not always the same people, obviuosly :)
    Bruce Mowbray: yes, we meet every six hours - 1,7,1,7 SLT.
    adoro Rhapsody: i see
    adoro Rhapsody: can be interesting
    adoro Rhapsody: with all kind of people of the world
    Bruce Mowbray: yes... we are the world.
    adoro Rhapsody: i see'
    adoro Rhapsody: and u make peace
    adoro Rhapsody: this way
    Wol Euler: among other things :)
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-) --- Gosh, I sure hope so, adoro.
    Wol Euler: some of us are just searching for tools to deal with anxiety and stress.
    Wol Euler: meditation is pretty good for that
    adoro Rhapsody: me too
    adoro Rhapsody: but this seams relaxing by talking
    adoro Rhapsody: what is on our mind
    Bruce Mowbray: yes, adoro, I agree. and also seeing harmony in our being with each other and the larger world.
    Bruce Mowbray: seeking.
    adoro Rhapsody: i agree
    --BELL--


    Bruce Mowbray: You (and we) are free to say anything here. . . with respect for all.
    Bruce Mowbray: and also free to wear anything -- right Wol?
    Calvino Rabeni: I've always liked the book of Ecclesiastes in the bible, as an expression of a Taoist philosophy - it's almost as if it could have been written by Lao Tzu
    Calvino Rabeni: To me it has much the same meaning and feel
    Wol Euler: yes, cal, absolutely
    Calvino Rabeni: perhaps with a little more christian flavoring added
    adoro Rhapsody: me too
    Bruce Mowbray: a time for everything under heaven.
    adoro Rhapsody: the jesuits ricci did much with tao
    Calvino Rabeni: And before chapter 3, the section on the vanity of knowledge
    adoro Rhapsody: right
    Calvino Rabeni: very reminiscent of Lao Tzu saying - "Do you think you can improve the Universe?"
    adoro Rhapsody: excellent
    Bruce Mowbray: I know that I need much improvement -- so that's improving just a tiny part of the univers... I hope.
    adoro Rhapsody: yes when we r part of nature
    adoro Rhapsody: and we are !
    Bruce Mowbray: always!
    adoro Rhapsody: so we have peace here
    Bruce Mowbray: let us being.
    Bruce Mowbray: let us begin.
    Calvino Rabeni: Please don't think I proseletize - but this bible site seems good - it has versions in many diferent languages
    Calvino Rabeni: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ecclesiastes+3&version=NASB
    Bruce Mowbray: We've fulfilled the prophesies for war long enough -- let's get on with beating out swords into plowshare.
    Bruce Mowbray: our.
    adoro Rhapsody: right
    Bruce Mowbray: Will check it out, Cal. Thanks.
    adoro Rhapsody: and daaren how do u look at it ?
    adoro Rhapsody: darren
    adoro Rhapsody: bible or tao does it matter ?
    Darren Islar: I think they are both interesting
    adoro Rhapsody: thnx
    Bruce Mowbray: "He has also set eternity in their heart."
    Bruce Mowbray: powerful.
    Calvino Rabeni: "bible or tao" - it doesn't matter - what matters is what you want to mean and to communicate
    Bruce Mowbray: agreed, Cal.
    adoro Rhapsody: i think thats the same as timeliness
    adoro Rhapsody: eternity = timeless
    Bruce Mowbray: yes.
    Calvino Rabeni: Setting eternity in the heart - is a way of expressing - setting truth in the heart
    Bruce Mowbray: Eternal Now. Eternal always.
    adoro Rhapsody: ok
    adoro Rhapsody: i see and feel it
    Bruce Mowbray: all over the planet -- in every culture -- in every time period -- the same truths emerge.
    Bruce Mowbray: doesn't matter what their labels are -- or what books are written.
    Wol Euler excuses herself and slips away quietly
    Wol Euler: enjoy the evening, my dears.
    adoro Rhapsody: bye
    Bruce Mowbray: Bye Wol. Love your golden peacock dress!
    Calvino Rabeni: Fly well, Wol
    Wol Euler: ty bruce!
    Bruce Mowbray: So. . . Play as Being is, perhaps, one way to allow those truths to emerge in ourselves.
