    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Roland
    Lucinda Lavender: Been here before?
    Roland Maven: Hi
    Roland Maven: Yes - one time
    Paradise Tennant: hiya roland
    Lucinda Lavender: we are in the midst of a silent 90 seconds...
    Roland Maven: High
    Roland Maven: and hello
    Lucinda Lavender: So I eagerly wait to hear more Sophia Sharon...as I eagerly await hearing of Katira...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    Roland Maven: Any get their burningman tickets yet?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: just an idea I had driving
    SophiaSharon Larnia: what is being?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :D
    Katira Silent: I feel that new uncomfortable feeling of not knowing what we are doing.. IM in that observation state of scoping out my surroundings and assessing my comfortabitly
    Calvino Rabeni: same here
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Roland Maven: While we are waiting - let's pick a topic
    Lucinda Lavender: many sessions here center around exploring being and awareness...
    Paradise Tennant: smiles yes that helps
    Lucinda Lavender: and sophia has just had an awareness she was describing...
    Lucinda Lavender: Katira...this has been a very lovely group for exploring ideas ...for me
    Calvino Rabeni: one piece of being - a very large one - is that second life "life" is and incredibly rich and complex social environment - all kinds of things are at play
    Calvino Rabeni: Its a musical ensemble
    SophiaSharon Larnia: just imagines every object or not objective thing experienced, wonderig what if all time was one moment, that would mean everything would be experienced at one time
    Calvino Rabeni: a collage
    SophiaSharon Larnia: even a collage has a pause
    SophiaSharon Larnia: im notsaying this very well tonight
    SophiaSharon Larnia: part of it is lag
    Calvino Rabeni: the pause is a time for me to slide the collage pieces aroung seeking the picture that is meant to be
    Paradise Tennant: smiles at sophia thought that was very well expressed
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but you see, it all one time, one experience
    SophiaSharon Larnia: its*
    Lucinda Lavender: the pause is for me a moment to pull my energy back ...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: in my imaginarium
    Calvino Rabeni: I work on the "glue" during the pause, because otherwise the little pieces keep falling off
    Lucinda Lavender: allowing ...lovely
    Roland Maven: thanks sophia for helping me to remember
    Miralee Munro: Sophia, so you have been wondering, "What is being?"
    SophiaSharon Larnia: as always
    Miralee Munro: You always wonder what it is to 'be'?
    Roland Maven: Being is Being Present
    Calvino Rabeni: Being - is a word that whispers a temptation
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but just wondered if each individual experience is perceived to occur separate from other experiences
    Roland Maven: I think all being IS Creation
    SophiaSharon Larnia: if there was no time, and no individual
    SophiaSharon Larnia: the all experience would happen at once
    Lucinda Lavender: see it as separate but actually connected...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: right
    Roland Maven: Aspects of the whole
    SophiaSharon Larnia: no aspects
    Roland Maven: ok
    SophiaSharon Larnia: just something rattling in my head
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Roland Maven: :)
    Miralee Munro smiles
    Miralee Munro: Rattle, rattle ...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I come here to talk about these ideas and they evolve over time
    SophiaSharon Larnia: this was dozy
    Miralee Munro: I used to think it was my brain rattling around in my head.
    Miralee Munro: lol
    Lucinda Lavender: once had a dream in which a man said to my dreaming friends...time to get ready for a time of transformation...which will be a little like being a mushroom
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :D
    SophiaSharon Larnia: a mushroom?
    Calvino Rabeni: could be.. most of the mushroom is invisible and bides its time under the ground
    Roland Maven: I love mushrooms
    Lucinda Lavender: and this brought me to imagine that there is this underground mycelium
    Paradise Tennant: smiles at lucinda .
    Lucinda Lavender: that does connect them
    Calvino Rabeni: the visible part that pops out is only sudden and occasional
    Calvino Rabeni: being is like that too
    Roland Maven: and at the right time
    Miralee Munro: Mmmmmmm .... I'm being all the time.
    Lucinda Lavender: did not know about the mycelium before the dream tho had to look that up
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hehe
    SophiaSharon Larnia: wow luci thats funny
    Paradise Tennant: do you remember more of the dream cinda
    SophiaSharon Larnia: amazing what the subconcsious unearths
    Miralee Munro stands up and slips away during the pause .... gently smiling and throwing kisses ....
    Katira Silent: tippy toes out also
    Katira Silent: thankyou
    SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Miralee and Kitira
    Calvino Rabeni: Goodbye Miralee and Katira, take care
    Paradise Tennant: good nite miralee :) katira
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Katira sorry
    Lucinda Lavender: started with seeing the dreamers sitting together...one had an orange drum she made a sound with...then the man spoke to us...about the mushroom. Bye Miralee and katira:)
    Paradise Tennant: were you all dreaming the same dream
    SophiaSharon Larnia: in a drum circle ?
    Roland Maven: played drums last night - wonderful
    SophiaSharon Larnia: kewl
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Lucinda Lavender: don't think so but these are just the elements of the dream...drum, sound, man, mushroom, transformation
    SophiaSharon Larnia: wonders if all experience at once is like a big bang moment.
    Lucinda Lavender: maybe we were dreaming together!
    Paradise Tennant: fungi to clarity
    SophiaSharon Larnia: giggles
    Roland Maven: I do believe creation is the big bang
    Aubergine Mint: big bang dreams
    SophiaSharon Larnia: beginning is the end
    Roland Maven: Creation never stops
    Roland Maven: we are creation
    Roland Maven: Of course - that is my perspective
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...and destruction?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes, mine too your milage may vary :D
    Roland Maven: Yes, destruction and creation
    Lucinda Lavender: decay...
    Paradise Tennant: or transformation
    SophiaSharon Larnia: only in a world of change is decay possible
    Lucinda Lavender: that about says it all...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: to change it has to have its opposite
    Lucinda Lavender: birthdeathbirthdeath
    Roland Maven: on going expansion
    Roland Maven: contraction and expansion
    Roland Maven: Love and fear
    SophiaSharon Larnia: rebirth is only possible in a world of change
    Roland Maven: Stevenaia - say's hello to everyone
    SophiaSharon Larnia: says hello back :D
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi steve
    Paradise Tennant: smiles :)) waves back
    Lucinda Lavender: waving through to you...
    Roland Maven: :) I told her
    SophiaSharon Larnia: my brain is cracking today
    SophiaSharon Larnia: laughs
    Roland Maven: Share some with us
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hehe
    SophiaSharon Larnia: while i sit here calmly <shrugs>
    Roland Maven: Tell us more
    Lucinda Lavender: cracking sounds like fullness somehow...
    Paradise Tennant: letting moonlight in :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I get ideas and they stay with me for a while, think about them, turn them over in my head
    Lucinda Lavender: allowing words to show the way
    SophiaSharon Larnia: words dont mean anything to me lol
    SophiaSharon Larnia: which i realize is an extremely odd thing to say
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...do they seem separate from experience?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: no, just so vague and multifaceted at the same time
    Aubergine Mint: depends on how you use them
    SophiaSharon Larnia: on a daily living level, take it as its intended perobably
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but when trying to talk about experience its a lot more difficult
    SophiaSharon Larnia: maybe im just autistic lol
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...thinking I know what you mean perhaps...
    Lucinda Lavender: about the difficultness of talking about experience
    Paradise Tennant: well words are hollow constructs a poor .. tool to express something so broad as experience
    Lucinda Lavender: Curious if anyone has had a seemingly new experience to day...
    Aubergine Mint: have a nice evening
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks Aubergine...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Augergine, nice to see you!
    Paradise Tennant: and you aubergine :) namaste

    SophiaSharon Larnia: you too!
    Paradise Tennant: and dream of mushrooms
    Paradise Tennant: !
    Lucinda Lavender: Today I went to the Puppet Theater...
    Lucinda Lavender: and heard a show about Anansi the Spider
    Paradise Tennant: smiles and listens
    Lucinda Lavender: very funny and good!
    Lucinda Lavender: Cal do you know about Anansi?
    Lucinda Lavender: kind of a trickster fellow
    Paradise Tennant: yes !
    Paradise Tennant: the myth was retold in American Gods
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...
    Lucinda Lavender: curious about that...
    Lucinda Lavender: a program?
    Paradise Tennant: no a fantasy novel and a great one
    Lucinda Lavender: I will look that up...
    Paradise Tennant: http://www.amazon.com/American-Gods-Novel-Neil-Gaiman/dp/0060558121
    Paradise Tennant: good writer
    Lucinda Lavender: yes..
    Lucinda Lavender: in todays play anansi created a web..
    Lucinda Lavender: and I thought about www
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Paradise Tennant: find it rather amazing still
    Paradise Tennant: like some kind of magic
    Paradise Tennant: a mist that connects :)
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...
    Lucinda Lavender: bringing us into a flow...
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Lucinda Lavender: thought for the next pause?
    Paradise Tennant: flow
    Calvino Rabeni: The flow I encountered is ...
    Calvino Rabeni: (end of statement, sorry)
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Paradise Tennant: actually .. flow is :)
    Paradise Tennant: is perfect
    Calvino Rabeni: nameless .. but. Can be acted within and through
    Paradise Tennant: always feel it as acting through me somehow
    Paradise Tennant: when I get that sense there is always a feeling of rightness
    Paradise Tennant: o000o is saying hi to you lucinda
    Lucinda Lavender: ok:)
    Lucinda Lavender: I say hi to him...
    Lucinda Lavender: just had message from him about the found poem yesterday evening
    Paradise Tennant: lol I am a conduit of hi's
    Lucinda Lavender: Yep the conduit
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, tell o thanks for that poem, if you can
    Lucinda Lavender: certainly have to say...that there are times of stronger sense of flow than others...
    Calvino Rabeni: how is it now?
    Calvino Rabeni: or maybe the question is where?
    Lucinda Lavender: steady sort of flow now...nothing seems too stirred...or pushed. Somtimes I sense it sort of in the air...or my stomach
    Paradise Tennant: do you feel it most in music cinda ?
    Lucinda Lavender: quite a bit...yes
    Lucinda Lavender: and in the awareness of darkness and light in a room
    Lucinda Lavender: emptiness and fullness
    Paradise Tennant: I find it music a lot .and often when I am working with numbers .. and sometimes in the placement of things and how i move my body
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding
    Lucinda Lavender: numbers!
    Paradise Tennant: often in groups too .. when ideas or solutions are brewing
    Paradise Tennant: or communication being shared
    Lucinda Lavender: interesting place...groups yes
    Lucinda Lavender: have noticed that when I try doing something with attention/intention there is a stronger sense
    Calvino Rabeni: A wide river seems barely to move ... in the shallows it becomes turbulent and spits water every way chaoticaly ... and in a narrow box canyon it flows deep and straight
    Calvino Rabeni: the focusing of attention intensifies the felt sense
    Paradise Tennant: yes when you lay out what you want to do in your mind first .. find the flow comes more easily
    Paradise Tennant: cooking too
    Paradise Tennant: there is flow in cooking
    Paradise Tennant: wb cinda
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks:)
    Lucinda Lavender: thinking about that time...I had a dream about going to a bookstore with Cal...
    Paradise Tennant: smiles and listens
    Lucinda Lavender: and saw the book...be here now on the shelf
    Lucinda Lavender: so one week later...cal invited me not knowing I had that dream...
    Lucinda Lavender: and so I said well I better...
    Lucinda Lavender: be here now...
    Lucinda Lavender: ha !
    Paradise Tennant: smiles a big smile
    Lucinda Lavender: lovely time there...music, poetry, stories...
    Lucinda Lavender: that does not happen that often but feels like flow
    Paradise Tennant: hmm there is definite flow in stories lyrics
    Lucinda Lavender: oh...for got...this morning upon waking saw the computer screen and there was a message from Arch...
    Paradise Tennant: music there is of course flow but sometimes I find it almost bigger than that ..like a wholeness
    Paradise Tennant: listens
    Lucinda Lavender: wholeness yess
    Lucinda Lavender: not sure what Arches message was...but it was on a gray background
    Lucinda Lavender: this was a dream...
    Paradise Tennant: in your dream there was a message from arch
    Paradise Tennant: wow
    Lucinda Lavender: just trust that much of dreaming is in the flow...
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Lucinda Lavender: and music too
    Lucinda Lavender: the vowel sounds...
    Lucinda Lavender: the concentration
    Lucinda Lavender: the love that is pouring forth
    Calvino Rabeni: that's very interesting, to get a dream message like that.
    Lucinda Lavender: I then wondered what the message had been
    Lucinda Lavender: sorry bell:)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles poor bell
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding...
    Paradise Tennant: maybe just his presence
    Lucinda Lavender: and on a gray page...
    Paradise Tennant: powerful to have someone reach you in a dream
    Lucinda Lavender: the mixture of dark and light
    Paradise Tennant: sort of like planes of reality colliding intermeshing
    Lucinda Lavender: this evening is foggy here...misty
    Paradise Tennant: where pema is they get vog
    Paradise Tennant: voggy days
    Paradise Tennant: sulphur mist from the volcano
    Lucinda Lavender: ah!
    Paradise Tennant: have been waiting a long time for a word like that for scrabble
    Lucinda Lavender: interesting!
    Paradise Tennant: sorry sleepy where pila is
    Lucinda Lavender: will tell my husband as he is a fan..
    Lucinda Lavender: pila yes
    Lucinda Lavender: Cal ...curious what you are thinking about...
    Lucinda Lavender: sorry should not put anyone on a spot!
    Lucinda Lavender: sorry
    Paradise Tennant: smiles what are friends for though ?
    Lucinda Lavender: but feel I get excited and chatty...:)
    Lucinda Lavender: true...connection and flow
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes what are friends for ..
    Calvino Rabeni: keep me on my toes :)
    Calvino Rabeni: I was thinking about poetry and writing
    Calvino Rabeni: still
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...
    Paradise Tennant: listens
    Calvino Rabeni: William James metaphor - the stream of consciousness - I wonder if he chose it for the flow aspect
    Calvino Rabeni: And there is a bigger river, the people we know are rivers within rivers
    Calvino Rabeni: currents perhaps
    Paradise Tennant: water molecules ?
    Calvino Rabeni: More than a molecule, less than a river ... and partly self-chosen
    Lucinda Lavender: interesting...it is how the presence passes on...a medium for our beingness
    Calvino Rabeni: I was also noticing, sometimes the process of multiple threads and chats and emails and all that media presents, has a flow, other times a jarring fragmentation
    Lucinda Lavender: at the hour I will take my leave...
    Calvino Rabeni: I was also thinking about those "on the verge" experience states
    Paradise Tennant: smiles thank you cinda ..
    Paradise Tennant: you were really thinking cal :)
    Paradise Tennant: so many thoughts ... tumbing almost
    Paradise Tennant: sigh will have to chase the dog around to get him boots and sweater :) very very very cold here :)
    Paradise Tennant: listen for more on the verge of experience states
    Lucinda Lavender: thank you both also...good luck with that Paradise:)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Calvino Rabeni: I've been on the verge of getting up and going grocery shopping all evening
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Paradise Tennant: perfect
    Calvino Rabeni: the feeling started easy then intensified
    Paradise Tennant: verge of experience
    Calvino Rabeni: and now either I'll go, or it will turn into something else
    Calvino Rabeni: become stale or transform - no way to know
    Paradise Tennant: smiles always the case it happens or morphs
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes
    Calvino Rabeni: anyway off I go ... :)
    Calvino Rabeni: "Goodnight room. Goodnight moon. Goodnight cow jumping over the moon. Goodnight light, and the red balloon..."
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Paradise Tennant: thank you cal ..perfect way to close the session
    Calvino Rabeni: :)
    Paradise Tennant: will try dream of cows and red balloons :)</shrugs>
