    SophiaSharon Larnia: nice way to wake up "today will be the best day"
    SophiaSharon Larnia: maybe I should make that my mantra
    Xirana Oximoxi: I don't like it... it seems the 'best' is only once... and getting worse... but maybe I'm doing a baad interpretation :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i know what you mean, i was thinking that too at the same time
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ;p

    Bleu Oleander: refreshing somehow
    SophiaSharon Larnia: the mantra was oh lord! let you be the director and controller of all my thoughts and actions this day, and she drew an OM sign with it..... not quite "everyday a festival, every meal a feast", but i think for her as important. :)
    Riddle Sideways: or you using/trying it?

    SophiaSharon Larnia: *blushes*
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Riddle Sideways: no need blush in this crowd
    SophiaSharon Larnia: it came about in an otherwise bland day
    Riddle Sideways: most do
    SophiaSharon Larnia: so you never know whats around the cornor
    Riddle Sideways: do we want to know ?
    Xirana Oximoxi: usually yes! humans, we are curious
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i think sometimes i do, ive called off work in the past for now reason for days that turned out terrible, but no, i dont think i do
    SophiaSharon Larnia: for no reason*
    Xirana Oximoxi: sometimes we keep thinking of what can be aroud the corner... and we don't see what we have just around too
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Bruce :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Bruce
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Bruce:)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Sharon.
    Bleu Oleander: hi Bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Riddle and Xirana and Bleu
    Bruce Mowbray: How's everyone today?

    Riddle Sideways: son acts likes he knows what is around the corner and is many times so disappointed when it is not exactly how he saw it
    SophiaSharon Larnia: aww, yes, that is a difficult one
    SophiaSharon Larnia: have a high expectation, or just want to be able to plan
    Bruce Mowbray listens to understand better what the topic is.
    Riddle Sideways: has 'best time', but did not get a pony
    Xirana Oximoxi: I was truing to thik of a sentence to explain the topic... but difficult:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: trying*
    Riddle Sideways: hmmmm. "is the party over"?
    Riddle Sideways: topic
    Xirana Oximoxi: and... do we want to see what is around the corner?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and, lol thanks slow thinker :/
    Riddle Sideways: or "have your best day"
    SophiaSharon Larnia: (points to self)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)))

    Bruce Mowbray: I have a very persistent woodpecker that has been pecking at my livingroom window for the past two hours. . . I think he wants to see what's around the corner.
    Bruce Mowbray: Want to see him?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: whoa
    Bruce Mowbray: http://hermitdog.com/woodpecker.htm
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh wow Bruce!
    Riddle Sideways: nice pictures
    Bleu Oleander: Woody!
    Bruce Mowbray: He's stil there!
    Xirana Oximoxi: ohhh so nice!! and he feels comfortable there:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes!
    Bruce Mowbray: Now -- back to the "getting around the corner" matter. . .
    Bruce Mowbray listens again.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: heh
    Riddle Sideways: when does planning or getting ready for... take over the enjoy "be here now"?
    Bruce Mowbray: Good topic.
    Bleu Oleander: planning is in the now
    Riddle Sideways: probably if the preparing for future deters from the now
    Xirana Oximoxi: I see two possibilities, one, when you are bored with what 'is here now'... and second, when you are worried of what's around the corner and don't see what you have in the near
    Bleu Oleander: we are always planning for the future
    Bleu Oleander: that's how we make decisions
    SophiaSharon Larnia: planning is necessary in a rl bodily sense
    Bruce Mowbray ponders Xir's comment. . .
    Xirana Oximoxi: about what I've said... 'bored' is not the correct word
    Xirana Oximoxi: maybe... better to say, what we have near is not what we need
    Riddle Sideways: bored not quite right word, but something near

    Bruce Mowbray: Are "hoping" and/or "fearing" possible outcomes examples of "not being present"? or can hoping and fearing be experienced as here-and-now experience?
    Xirana Oximoxi: then we muss plann and move on
    Bleu Oleander: they are emotions happening in the present Bruce
    Riddle Sideways: e.g. there is major cleaning going on in our house.
    Riddle Sideways: but we seem to be having fun at it
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :) welocme sprimg
    SophiaSharon Larnia: welcome spring*
    Bruce Mowbray: Another way to phrase it: Do our "planning sessions" take us out of the present -- by virtue of their "hopes" and "fears"?
    Xirana Oximoxi: in my personal experience.. for exemple I was 'stuck' with my paintings... so I've had to move on.. do other things
    Bleu Oleander: planning sessions are taking place in the present
    Riddle Sideways: yet planning sessions deal with futures
    Bleu Oleander: we are always in the present
    Xirana Oximoxi: probably it will lead me to paint again.. but differently:)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Yaku :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Yak
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Yaku
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Yaku!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning everyone

    Bleu Oleander: thinking about the future doesn't take you out of the present
    Bruce Mowbray: Is Yaku radioactive?
    Bleu Oleander: hey Yaku

    Yakuzza Lethecus: still something i got in yesterdays session
    Bleu Oleander: glowing today Yaku

    Riddle Sideways: bleu that is a curious statement. When the mind goes into past or future are we still in present
    Riddle Sideways: oh, see you wrote that while I was think ing
    Bleu Oleander: I think we are still in the present albeit thinking of the past or future
    Bruce Mowbray: If we are "always in the present," then being "stuck in memories" or "stuck in future hopes" is an experience we have NOW. Stuck now in past or future.
    Riddle Sideways: the time explorations have disturbed those thoughts
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: the now planning another now
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh yes they have, Riddle -- and how excellent a 'disturbance' those explorations have been!
    Bleu Oleander: the time explorations haven't disturbed those thoughts for me
    Bruce Mowbray listens for more from Bleu and Riddle.
    Riddle Sideways: thinks
    Riddle Sideways: disturbed not right word
    Bleu Oleander listens to Riddle
    Riddle Sideways: if past/future do not exist
    Bleu Oleander: who said that? hehe
    Riddle Sideways: what is present doing?
    Riddle Sideways: just playing with if they do not exist
    SophiaSharon Larnia: seeing?
    Riddle Sideways: zeroth time
    Bleu Oleander trying to see where Riddle is going
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Riddle Sideways: /me is wundering too
    Xirana Oximoxi: lol
    Bruce Mowbray: I don't mean to sound fill-in-the-blank now, but Present Time is presenting the presence of appearances for us to appreciate
    Bleu Oleander: what are you feeling now? do you feel like you are here now?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i understand the sentiment :)
