    stevenaia Michinaga: finding one's path
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Paradise Tennant: great choice !
    Ewan Bonham: hhmmm..lol
    Ewan Bonham: I think the only way to find my path is to start walking..
    Paradise Tennant: nods yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: and I suppose, more importantly, finding the patience to wait for it
    Paradise Tennant: nods
    Ewan Bonham: perhaps notice where I am walking..
    Ewan Bonham: And if i want to be there again..
    Paradise Tennant: they always say when you are ready the teacher will appear :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, fate has its ways
    Dream Wrexan: waiting... patience
    Dream Wrexan: being comfortable with not knowing
    Ewan Bonham: And like all paths, it canges and turns and twists
    Ewan Bonham: changes
    Dream Wrexan: yes, and we don't care much for those turns, do we?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I learned so much anout so many things here at Play as Being, there is a cornacopia or perhaps a smorgasborg of pathes to see and touch upon here
    Ewan Bonham: hard to see around the turns
    Paradise Tennant: yes each one valid
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    Dream Wrexan: yes - life as a maze
    Ewan Bonham: and which is MINE?
    Dream Wrexan: lol, Ewan
    Dream Wrexan: yes!
    Paradise Tennant: hmm think surrender plays a big part
    stevenaia Michinaga: the one that fits, like a shoe
    Ewan Bonham: surrender to the process of discovery
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    Paradise Tennant: accepting where ever you are .. is the right place to start
    Paradise Tennant: perfection in its own right
    Ewan Bonham: ã‹¡ para
    Dream Wrexan: Paradise - I like the concept - starting where we are
    Dream Wrexan: over again with each step
    Dream Wrexan: life with new eyes
    Paradise Tennant: yes ! life with new eyes
    Paradise Tennant: open eyes :)
    Dream Wrexan: there was a commedian many years ago who used the term "new eyes"
    Ewan Bonham: changing eyes
    Dream Wrexan: imagine what things must look like to a baby - everything new
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Dream Wrexan: no preconceived notions
    Ewan Bonham: And...all the time
    stevenaia Michinaga: welcoming the everything
    Dream Wrexan: some of my alzheimers patients are like that too :-)
    Paradise Tennant: delight in every new thing .. a fresh discovery ..full of wonder :)
    Dream Wrexan: yes!
    Dream Wrexan: a world of wonder
    Dream Wrexan: like the birds chirping here
    stevenaia Michinaga: I usually hear them clearer during the 90 seconds
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Paradise Tennant: being on the right path .. means progress ..of sorts .. with each defining that a little differently I think
    Ewan Bonham: Each being willing to define it as we go along
    Dream Wrexan: I do hope you'll excuse me - but I need to say goodnight
    stevenaia Michinaga: I was just thinking of it not as a direction, but as clothes that fit, what you wear
    Dream Wrexan: enjoy your discussion, everyone
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Paradise Tennant: good nite dream
    stevenaia Michinaga: ight Dream
    Paradise Tennant: sweet dreams :)
    Ewan Bonham: good night, Dream
    Paradise Tennant: hmm ... in buddhist .. thought eventually even the path falls away .. you are at the destination .. no longer need it and it is part of the illusion too :)
    Paradise Tennant: sort of a diappearing path :) like footprints that .. erase as you walk through wet sand
    Ewan Bonham: reminds me of being with a good friend...and it doesn't matter just where you meet...it is all the same
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: in stevieism they way you are seems perfectly applicable in every situation
    stevenaia Michinaga: like an old friend, yes
    Paradise Tennant: tell us more about stevieism :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: smiles
    stevenaia Michinaga: seems more like a daoist approach as I understand it , since I have done little study, but jsut let things be and things happen
    stevenaia Michinaga: resolution seems to only requilt ever so slight movment sometimes
    stevenaia Michinaga: *require
    Paradise Tennant: ahhh like tai chi :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: and Wei Wu
    Paradise Tennant: smiles

    Ewan Bonham: Me too
    Paradise Tennant: nods .. smiles ..
    Paradise Tennant: sometimes .. I get a sense of .. deja vue and it always makes me smiles somehow gives me a sense yes ..this is the suppose to be how it is now .. this is right
    Paradise Tennant: hmm
    Paradise Tennant: wonders at what motivates us to try .. sometimes
    stevenaia Michinaga: it;s the the trying, it;s the waiting that sometimes brings things to us
    stevenaia Michinaga: it;s not the trying, rather
    Paradise Tennant: ahh lol so he who waits will win :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: perhaps, sometimes
    Paradise Tennant: smiles .. once .. you achieve enlightenment than all of this disappears .. as though it never happened you wake up from the dream .. like we wake up from sleep
    stevenaia Michinaga: I find that patience often brings opportunity
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Ewan Bonham: waking up...but still wanting to turn over..
    Paradise Tennant: the reward of patience is patience .. samual beckett :)
