    Corvuscorva Nightfire: they're exciting
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: at least for me

    Pema Pera: it's quite amazing how "rain" can turn into a wall of water . . . .
    Pema Pera: a three-dimensional wall, that is
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nods.
    Eos Amaterasu does the cgi
    stevenaia Michinaga: Hi Pila

    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Pila?!
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi Pila

    Eos Amaterasu: hi -
    stevenaia Michinaga: we need to coordinate our arrivals
    Pila Mulligan: hi Dash
    Dash Earthboy: hey y'all
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    oO0Oo Resident: Heya Dash
    Dash Earthboy: sry about b4 but my battery pooped out
    druth Vlodovic: we're talking about pema bringing rain
    oO0Oo Resident: no worries mate
    Pema Pera: :-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: is there a difference between a cyclone and a hurricane other than the location?
    Pila Mulligan: yo Pema
    Pema Pera: as far as I know, typhoon, cycloon, hurricane are all the same phenomena
    Pema Pera: a rose by a different name :-)
    Eos Amaterasu bows
    Pila Mulligan is curious about: [19:13] druth Vlodovic: we're talking about pema bringing rain
    Eos Amaterasu: of such refs are legends made of
    Pema Pera is happy to let Druth explain her cryptic remarks :-)
    Dash Earthboy: hey Susan
    Pema Pera: hi Susan!
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Susan
    Pila Mulligan: hi Susan
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    stevenaia Michinaga: it was preceeded by [19:08] stevenaia Michinaga: do disasters, preceed you, follow you or surround you Pema?
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi Susan
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi susan
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hey susan
    Pila Mulligan: aha
    druth Vlodovic: logically they would surround him since he can't experience them until he is there
    stevenaia Michinaga: but if they preceed him, we are all clear here when he returns to the States, the storms will have passed
    Pema Pera: rain was surrounding me, indeed, while I was happily indoors
    Eos Amaterasu: tropical storms do give you the feeling of being immersed in something that wouild take a long long time to traverse
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: ooof
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: that's just beautiful
    Pema Pera: it's kind of oplifting to look at a downpour :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: :-)
    Pema Pera: relatively speaking at least . . .
    Pila Mulligan: rain releases tension
    Eos Amaterasu: there's a lot of tension in the air these days
    stevenaia Michinaga: Flowing is a metaphor for so many things
    druth Vlodovic: are you tense eos?
    Eos Amaterasu: embedded in a world full of tensions....
    Eos Amaterasu: and relaxations
    oO0Oo Resident: calvino was saying that Space weather may affect our moods ~ Solar flares and such
    Eos Amaterasu: I was thinking of the energy that builds up in the oceans and just above, and how it relaxes as moisture
    oO0Oo Resident smiles tha tfelt powerful to read that
    Pema Pera: it's indeed very refreshing to "taste" the air after a typhoon -- as I'm doing today
    stevenaia Michinaga: sunny today?
    Pema Pera: mixed, more interesting that way :)
    oO0Oo Resident: wb Dash
    oO0Oo Resident: tasting typhoons
    Dash Earthboy: ty
    Eos Amaterasu: ~~, _
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hey Dash!
    Eos Amaterasu: let's taste the air in the upcoming 90 secs
    Dash Earthboy: ok
    oO0Oo Resident: ;P
    Pema Pera: nice idea, Eos
    stevenaia Michinaga: mine has insense to flavor it
    Eos Amaterasu: :-)
    Dash Earthboy: was on Vista b4 and was about to introduce some ppl looking over my shoulder when Vista crashed on me
    Dash Earthboy: drumming up interest in Second Life in general and Play As Being in particular
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Dash Earthboy: air tasted good...like BBQ :)
    Pema Pera: interesting to see all phenomena becoming a little more airy, roomy, lighter . . .
    Pema Pera: colors, sounds, . . .
    stevenaia Michinaga: sometimes 90 second pause lasts forever, other times it feels like the blink of an eye, like this time
    Eos Amaterasu: It felt so good to do this twice in a row, completely
    stevenaia Michinaga: barely had time for a lick
    Dash Earthboy: :)
    Pila Mulligan: 'the lead of the water region has but one taste'
    Pila Mulligan: (from a Chinese meditation text)
    Pema Pera pondering the different readings of "lead" . . .
    Dash Earthboy: *didn't like the taste of led when chewing on pencils in school :)
    Pila Mulligan: they mean the metal I believe :)
    druth Vlodovic: not sure it is good to taste lead too much
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: that's why there's only one
    oO0Oo Resident: the taste of no taste?
    Dash Earthboy: oh, lead has taste
    Dash Earthboy: found a shotgun pellet in a beefsteak once
    Pema Pera: hi Arch!
    Dash Earthboy: hey Arch
    oO0Oo Resident: Arch :)
    Pila Mulligan: hi Arch
    Eos Amaterasu: ~~, Arch
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi Arch
    oO0Oo Resident: That was perhaps a mind stopper Dash?!
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Dash Earthboy: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: as they say, "eat leaden death"
    Archmage Atlantis: Lead. to some of us, has a taste
    Pila Mulligan: I read about your cat passing, Arch -- condolences to you
    Archmage Atlantis: To others, it is body important
    Archmage Atlantis: We havevovled
    Archmage Atlantis: We need to learn beyond scientific thought
    oO0Oo Resident nods
    Eos Amaterasu listens
    Archmage Atlantis: I woke up, and it was time to come here....Chester, he is here
    oO0Oo Resident waves to Chester :)
    Archmage Atlantis: The cat's meow
    Archmage Atlantis: i need to go now
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: bye Arch
    Dash Earthboy: *sends some virtual catnip
    Archmage Atlantis: blessings and namaste
    Dash Earthboy: bye Arch
    oO0Oo Resident: <3 Namaste Arch
    Eos Amaterasu: ciao & meow
    Pema Pera: bye Arch!
    Dash Earthboy: Chester is probably lonely too
    Pema Pera: how about tasting space, in the next 90-sec pause?
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: smiles, favorate meal
    Eos Amaterasu: a favorite of astronomers
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Pema Pera: easy to overeat . . .
    Pema Pera: in an expanding universe
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Dash Earthboy: just be careful of them Fireballs
    Dash Earthboy: they used to burn my mouth :)
    Pema Pera: Hi Santo!
    Dash Earthboy: hey San
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi Santo
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi, Santo!
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi Santos
    Eos Amaterasu: HI Santo
    Santoshima Resident: hello pema, dash, sam, susan, eos, corvi, druth, stevenaia
    Pila Mulligan: hi Santo
    Dash Earthboy: & pila
    Santoshima Resident: and Pila!
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Pema Pera: I switched between the taste of space and of phenomena arising in space -- similar, yet different
    stevenaia Michinaga: Iw as feeling the surface of the space defining surface with my tongue
    Eos Amaterasu: sinking into the perceptual quality of sensing space through taste
    stevenaia Michinaga: in my tai chi classes we are learning to lead with our tongue.. to taste the directions we are going
    Pila Mulligan: here's a fuller context of the previous meditation book quote: "The Great One is the term given to that which has nothing above it. The secret of the magic of life consists in using action in order to achieve non-action. One must not wish to leave out the steps between and penetrate directly. The maxim handed down to us is to take in hand the work on the essence. In doing this it is important not to follow the wrong road. The Golden Flower is the Light. What color has the light? One uses the Golden Flower as an image. It is the true power of the transcendent Great One. The phrase, 'The lead of the water-region has but one taste,' refers to it"
    Eos Amaterasu tastes directions
    Eos Amaterasu: feels like a paramecium
    druth Vlodovic swims off
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    oO0Oo Resident: Bye Druth
    Eos Amaterasu: bye druth
    Santoshima Resident: bye druth
    Dash Earthboy: bye druth
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: bye druth
    Pila Mulligan: bye Druth
    Pema Pera: bye Druth!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: follows Druth out ...getting sleepy!
    Pema Pera looks at his watch and realizes he needs to get going to
    Dash Earthboy: bye Corvi
    Pila Mulligan: bye Corvi, nice to see you
    Eos Amaterasu: bye corv - nice to see you
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Bye ya'll
    Santoshima Resident: bye corvi, pema ~
    Dash Earthboy: bye Pema
    Pila Mulligan: bye Pema, glad you weathered the storm ok
    Eos Amaterasu also looks at watch and joins the exodus
    Pema Pera waves to everybody
    Dash Earthboy: bye Eos
    Pila Mulligan: bye Eos
    Santoshima Resident: bye eos
    Eos Amaterasu: by thanks all!
    oO0Oo Resident: Bye Pema, Eos :)
    Pila Mulligan: Steve, in your tai chi practice do you curl the base of your tongue to the roof of your mouth
    stevenaia Michinaga: more lightly touch the front behing the teeth
    Pila Mulligan: yep, a tatse phenomenon :)
    Pila Mulligan: taste*
    stevenaia Michinaga: but she says the tongue leads the movement
    Pila Mulligan: the tongue also tastes the lead :)
    Santoshima Resident: do you practice taiji, Pila?
    Pila Mulligan: there is an accupressure point there that is like closing an electric circuit
    Pila Mulligan: yes Santo
    Pila Mulligan: you also?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have chosen to pactice Tai Chi for my 99 days... if you have read about that Pila
    Santoshima Resident: it's a yoga practice ... curling the tongue in that way ... i can't recall the name
    Pila Mulligan: nice :)
    Pila Mulligan: yes, it is a mudra, I forget the exact name also
    stevenaia Michinaga: http://wiki.playasbeing.org/Classes_and_Sessions/The_99_Days_project
    Santoshima Resident: yes, mudra
    stevenaia Michinaga: can you say more Pila
    Pila Mulligan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khecar%C4%AB_mudr%C4%81
    stevenaia Michinaga: :
    stevenaia Michinaga: 0
    Pila Mulligan: well, Steve, I've heard different approaches, but there seems to be a place where the tongue and the top pof the mouth set off a kind of taste response
    Pila Mulligan: you can move the tongue around up there and find places where it is stronger
    stevenaia Michinaga: tickles
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Dash Earthboy: :)
    Pila Mulligan: I also use it when hiking -- avoind thirst
    Pila Mulligan: avoid*
    oO0Oo Resident: Does anyone else notice an increase in saliva production... talking about all this?
    Dash Earthboy: no but good point Sam
    Pila Mulligan: yes
    Dash Earthboy: that's how thirst is averted
    Pila Mulligan: Kechari Mudra is actually a bit more drastic than the simple touching part
    Santoshima Resident: "the tongue is the switch between the gross and subtle and between the central and peripheral energy systems. [ ... ] control of the sixteen through connection between the tongue and the sinews, one can influence and direct movement of the body parts using pranic force rather than muscular activity."
    Santoshima Resident: shandor remete / shadow yoga
    Santoshima Resident: yes, kechari mudra, that's right
    Santoshima Resident: after "sixteen" should be the word "sinews"
    Santoshima Resident: typos about, sorry
    Pila Mulligan: that's the chi of tai chi -- pranic force
    Pila Mulligan: or energy
    Pila Mulligan: of breathing
    stevenaia Michinaga: a rose by any other name
    Dash Earthboy: *is getting a refresher course in keywords :)
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Santoshima Resident: taiji and hatha yoga, similar roots
    Pila Mulligan: yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: nothing quite like it in the west
    Pila Mulligan: breathing and energy and movement
    Santoshima Resident: milder form of kechari mudra is jiva bandha ~ same name for you?
    oO0Oo Resident: Got to get moving.. going to follow my tongue, and sense the ocean as I go.
    Pila Mulligan: bye 0
    Pila Mulligan: nice to see you
    oO0Oo Resident bows. Gassho _/|\_
    oO0Oo Resident: Nice to see you all :)
    Pila Mulligan: yes, San, you are quite right, it is jiva bandha, not kechari mudra
    Santoshima Resident: bows to sam ~ namaskar
    Dash Earthboy: bye Sam
    Dash Earthboy: my onlookers are suggesting we head out for other things
    Dash Earthboy: pax et bonum y'all
    stevenaia Michinaga: enjoy Dash
    Pila Mulligan: bye Dash, nice to see you
    Santoshima Resident: enjoy the evening, dash
    Pila Mulligan: have you practiced tai chi much Santoshima?
    Pila Mulligan: or is this the begining?
    Santoshima Resident: i practice yoga, had not realized the overlap in terms between taiji and hatha yoga
    Santoshima Resident: but it makes absolute sense
    Pila Mulligan: yep, they are complementary
    Santoshima Resident: have only studied a little of taiji ... think it was called 24 form, very basic
    Pila Mulligan: chi kung is a variation
    Santoshima Resident: so enjoyed the round, flowing movement
    stevenaia Michinaga: seems every family has its own form
    Pila Mulligan: mostly just Chinese styles of yoga
    Pila Mulligan: yes Steve
    Pila Mulligan: the tai chi lineages are family based
    Santoshima Resident: yes
    Pila Mulligan: but yoga is too :)
    Santoshima Resident: very much so
    stevenaia Michinaga: is it the same w/ Yoga styles?
    Pila Mulligan: Krihsnamacharya gave birth to several styles from his home in madras, thru his fmaily
    Santoshima Resident: for those that acknowledge lineage ... yes
    Pila Mulligan: BS Iyengar and Deskacharya
    Santoshima Resident: and Sri Patabhi jois
    Santoshima Resident: bks iyengar
    Santoshima Resident: : his sister was married to Krishnamacharya
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Santoshima Resident: Desikachar is his son
    Pila Mulligan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tirumalai_Krishnamacharya
    Santoshima Resident: Patabhi Jois was a longtime, devoted disciple
    Pila Mulligan: have yuo seen photos of his asanas?
    Pila Mulligan: he has some beautiful postures
    Santoshima Resident: photos of krishnamacharya i the book: Health, Healing and Beyond by TKV Desikachar / and in this 1938 news clip of BKS Iyengar in which Krishnamacharya also appears: iyengar 1938 / practice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmOUZQi_6Tw
    Pila Mulligan: thanks
    Santoshima Resident: you are meaning Krishnamacharya, right , Pila?
    Pila Mulligan: yes
    Santoshima Resident: actually, on reviewing, that clip seems to be lacking K. here is a better choice:
    Santoshima Resident: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cd_eTupTCbI&feature=fvwrel
    Santoshima Resident: bye Pila
    Santoshima Resident: wb
    Pila Mulligan: thanks
    Pila Mulligan: and hi Susan
    stevenaia Michinaga: jsutg saw you leave
    stevenaia Michinaga: just
    stevenaia Michinaga: wb
    Pila Mulligan: I tihnk it was one of tose stealth crashes Phoenix does sometimes
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    stevenaia Michinaga: soon there will be new viewers to crash :)
    Pila Mulligan: does your yoga practice get into the role of shakti, Santoshima?
    Santoshima Resident: shakti, yes
    Santoshima Resident: shakti, in essence is cosmic energy
    Pila Mulligan: to me it is analogous to yin in the Chinese scheme
    Santoshima Resident: yes, i think that's so
    Pila Mulligan: the relationship between prana and shakti (or chi and yin) is a subtle part of the practice
    Santoshima Resident: as in yoga as well
    Pila Mulligan: yes, that was my menaing too, in most such practices :)
    Pila Mulligan: Steve, it was interesting to read the chat log where you discussed anima and animas
    stevenaia Michinaga: it wasn't much of a discussion, but perhaps a begining as it was something new
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: new in the sense that jung thought about it
    Pila Mulligan: maybe we can continue the discussion Tuesday at the I Ching workshop
    Pila Mulligan: Jung was much influenced by yin and yang theory
    stevenaia Michinaga: don;t know much about it other than what I live :)
    Pila Mulligan: ;)
    stevenaia Michinaga: sounds like homework, but yes, there is the ying/yung components to it
    Pila Mulligan: Jung used Eros and Logos as his correlates at the perosnal level, for yin and yang ...
    Pila Mulligan: but his freind and correpsondent Richard WIlhelm used anima and animas in describing personal yin and yang
    stevenaia Michinaga: would be interested to hear what Rhi has to say about it
    Pila Mulligan: Jung was already using anima and animas for his ownpurposes then
    Pila Mulligan: but the descriptions are similar
    Pila Mulligan: is Rhi a Jung fan?
    stevenaia Michinaga: not that I know much about either but Jung seems so much more _____(fill in your own word) than Freud
    Pila Mulligan: hippy?
    Santoshima Resident: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: she said she lead a discussion of it
    Pila Mulligan: ahh, anima ... yes I think I recall
    Santoshima Resident: stevenaia, is that past or future tense for the discussion?
    stevenaia Michinaga: her discussions remind me of scien tific ameria articles, fun to begin, dificult to get to the end
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: in the past
    Santoshima Resident: ah
    stevenaia Michinaga: she hold weekly discussion in another land
    stevenaia Michinaga: on a variety of topics
    stevenaia Michinaga: ethics, morals, philosphy
    Santoshima Resident: must one attend nude, or is that just her?
    stevenaia Michinaga: clothing optional, but she usually has kick-ass heels on
    Santoshima Resident: :)))
    iwandertoo Resident: lol
    Pila Mulligan thinks of the hot tubs at Esalen
    Santoshima Resident: heels? in the tub?
    stevenaia Michinaga: nice that my officemate (in RL) brough it up
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: but I should see if she is available to stop in for our iChing discussion on Tuesday, if that's ok
    Pila Mulligan: sure ... I am interested in pursuing the WIlhelm version, but the Jung version is also worhty of pursuit
    stevenaia Michinaga: Santos, and susan, if you are intrested in IChing, Pila holds a monthly discussion on that very subject
    Pila Mulligan: same foundation
    Santoshima Resident: i have only seen the Wilheim version
    Santoshima Resident: and would be interested in coming to the discussion
    iwandertoo Resident: thank you
    Santoshima Resident: ty
