    Riddle Sideways: we did work up a little something
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll bet
    Agatha Macbeth: Any interesting explorations?
    Riddle Sideways: a little work, but could be a great theme session
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed
    Riddle Sideways: Aph, is a great artist that can take our explorations and words and draw them on paper
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh wow
    Agatha Macbeth: I didn't know that
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe she will post some of them
    Riddle Sideways: on a long butcher paper roll
    Agatha Macbeth: On a *what* ? [giggles]
    Riddle Sideways: one section cut out of the middle, but still aboout 14 feet long
    Agatha Macbeth: Good heavens
    Agatha Macbeth: What does a butcher use that for exactly?
    Riddle Sideways: probably will not publish it, cause it has some personal stuff
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww
    Riddle Sideways: but that would be hard to understand
    Agatha Macbeth: She could always edit it :)
    Riddle Sideways: maybe
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Agatha Macbeth: We must prod her a little...
    Riddle Sideways: Mt. Rainer was in the distance
    Agatha Macbeth strokes FC's head
    Riddle Sideways: and the weather kept changing
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah yes...
    Agatha Macbeth: Kenneth Arnold and all that
    Riddle Sideways: so first there was a mountain
    Riddle Sideways: then there was no mountain
    Riddle Sideways: then there was
    Agatha Macbeth: No UFOs I take it?
    Riddle Sideways: - old Donovan song

    Riddle Sideways: san had been traveling at start of retreat
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Agatha Macbeth: Your guitar playing didn't put her off then? :DDD
    Riddle Sideways: kept asking about fc but San would not say
    Agatha Macbeth: We all know he's a cutie :)
    Riddle Sideways: made San stand on her head
    Agatha Macbeth: OMG
    Agatha Macbeth: Did all the loose change drop out?
    Riddle Sideways: lol
    Riddle Sideways: actually did not play guitar while San was there
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Agatha Macbeth: I think Luci enjoyed herself

    Agatha Macbeth smiles
        --BELL--
    Riddle Sideways: Cinda seemed to enjoy

    Riddle Sideways: western
    Agatha Macbeth: she is
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, ty
    Agatha Macbeth: Wonder where everyone is tonight?
    Riddle Sideways: hiding
    Agatha Macbeth: We usually have a full circle at this time

    Breezer had been sitting quietly all this time.  Now he steered the conversation in a whole other direction....
    Breezer Tomsen: Can I share something with you, or ask a question ?
    Riddle Sideways: of course
    Agatha Macbeth: Please do Breezer
    Breezer Tomsen: ok thank you
    Breezer Tomsen: let me first tell me something about myself
    Agatha Macbeth: Ok
    Breezer Tomsen: I am dutch 32 years,
    Breezer Tomsen: busy with nonduality and stuff now for around 12 years... but I am sick of it now :-)
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Breezer Tomsen: actually I don't have a question, got to the point where I see I can't do anything anymore
    FcSeeker Resident: understand
    Breezer Tomsen: but I still suffer, very tired and exausted
    Breezer Tomsen: some days are good and there where some openings few weeks ago
    Breezer Tomsen: but most of the time I am just doing nothing
    Breezer Tomsen: don't like to watch tv, seems like I lost all of my interests and now also the interest for nonduality
    Breezer Tomsen: it looks like al I can do is wait, or do nothing...
    FcSeeker Resident: maybe that is because this world is dual...
    Breezer Tomsen: I heard about a thing called dark night of the soul, did anyone heard about that?
    FcSeeker Resident: meaning both; SL and RL
    Agatha Macbeth: I have heard of it, yes
    Breezer Tomsen: ok, I feels like I am in it, somethimes for a few weeks it hits me and then after a while I feel better, but then it comes back again
    Breezer Tomsen: I almost smoke 2 packages of cigarettes a day now ...:-)
    Riddle Sideways: wow
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh dear
    Breezer Tomsen: What do you think about the waiting thing? do I have to wait , It sure feel like I can't do anything...?
    FcSeeker Resident: what would you wait for ?
    Riddle Sideways: waiting takes a lot of patience and always seems it is not coming
    FcSeeker Resident: hi Korel
    Agatha Macbeth: Osiyo Korel :)
    Riddle Sideways: is there a way to be calm and stillness in the waiting
    Korel Laloix: heya
    Breezer Tomsen: good question, I think I am waiting for the silence, I had a silence period before
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Korel
    Breezer Tomsen: hi korel
    Korel Laloix: Heya
    Riddle Sideways: Korel, thanks for the beautiful poem in the exhibition hall
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    FcSeeker Resident: do you mean the silence in which there is 'everything' ?
    Riddle Sideways: or the silence where there is peace
    Breezer Tomsen: yes, few weeks ago 'I' had the experience 'I' was gone, it felt silent and very light, now its gone again (well it looks like its gone...)
        --BELL--
    FcSeeker Resident: when you shine for that kind of silence, you are great light, and great light 'calls' darkness...sorrows and fears and pains from other people who knows you or are phycically near...both ways; other souls see you better and come to get help...
    Riddle Sideways: Korel, it was a sad and anger producing and action motivating poem.
    Korel Laloix: You are welome.
    Korel Laloix: It was what I felt at the time.
    Agatha Macbeth: It sounds like you have come to the right place if you are talking about 'dropping the I' Breezer :)
    Korel Laloix: There is a part two that is not realy a poem... if you want to see that.
    Agatha Macbeth nods to Korel (wado :)
    Riddle Sideways: yes please
    Riddle Sideways: Breezer, silence is hidden by noise
    Breezer Tomsen: yes aggers, but I can't drop it I see, I sometimes pray to set me free and I try to accepts thing, be quiet and silence
    Riddle Sideways: (taht is a stupid thing to day]
    Riddle Sideways: I meant my comment
    Breezer Tomsen: I a way I feel like there is some surrender but it is not complete yet
    FcSeeker Resident: <3
    Riddle Sideways: yes
    Agatha Macbeth: I don't think it was silly Rid
    Breezer Tomsen: somewhere inside I know you folks can't help me, but sometimes it feels nice to talk to someone about this stuff I guess
    Riddle Sideways: it sure does
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes Breezer, agreed
    FcSeeker Resident: <3<3<3
    Korel Laloix: Finding the right person or people is tricky.
    Agatha Macbeth: There are always more questions than answers
    Breezer Tomsen: and new answers lead to new questions, and there you go again :-)
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Riddle Sideways: personally have dropped the "I" for a few months now. It helps see with 'eyes' not 'I'
    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed :)
    Korel Laloix: I went though several counselors before I found someone that could really work with me.
    Agatha Macbeth: Nice, Rid :))
    FcSeeker Resident: that is also that there are answers that are true to many different kind of questions
    FcSeeker Resident: and imo the most urgent 
    FcSeeker Resident: 'key' answer is that 'the medicine is love'
    Agatha Macbeth smiles and hugs FC
    FcSeeker Resident: one is said also in the bible;
    Breezer Tomsen: yes fc, very true
    FcSeeker Resident: the truth shall release you
    FcSeeker Resident: not meaning to preach at all; no...I'm not religious to any religion...
    Breezer Tomsen: I also feel that there is a lot of builded up tension inside over all those years (had 5 psychoses and been in hospital for mentally ill) , I would like to cry but somehow I can't, I have the feeling that it will al be released , but when I don't know...
    FcSeeker Resident: if love is not religion
    Agatha Macbeth smiles @ FC
    Agatha Macbeth: Sorry to hear that Breezer...
    Breezer Tomsen: yes it's sadd, but it is my way so in someway I feel fine with it
    FcSeeker Resident: <3<3<3
    Breezer Tomsen: whatever must happen happens...
    Agatha Macbeth: That's good :)
    Agatha Macbeth: As someone I know always says 'It's all perfect' :)
    FcSeeker Resident: imho you have choosen very great lessons to your this life...
         --BELL--
    FcSeeker Resident: and the most urgent thing I think that you truly have learned; that you dont blaim anything or other people of what you are now going through <3<3<3<3
    Agatha Macbeth: <3
