    Mickorod Renard: I did the malta and the assisi retreats
    Korel Laloix: no one has givin men anything suggestions.
    Korel Laloix: wow.. let me retype that
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Mickorod Renard: I thought you were doing a follow up
    Korel Laloix: no one has given me anything to talk about.
    Mickorod Renard: re the first nation info
    Bleu Oleander: where are you talking?
    Korel Laloix: Well, that is the thought.. but not sure what people want me to talk about.
    Korel Laloix: At teh I ching thing.
    Bleu Oleander: interesting
    Bleu Oleander: when is that?
    Korel Laloix: I talked about seme aspects of First American thought a couple of months ago.
    Mickorod Renard: well,,i am no expert,,but in some ways I think the trend is to see if there are sort of similar contemplative methods in diferent cultures
    Korel Laloix: COuld be.
    Mickorod Renard: like the i ching is to the chinese
    Bleu Oleander: is i ching practiced across many cultures?
    Mickorod Renard: many people have adopted it
    Korel Laloix: My meditation is when I run.
    Mickorod Renard: and its even part of the national flag in korea and not sure maybe tailand
    Korel Laloix: No idea.
    Mickorod Renard: well korel,,thats an interesting thing yoiu say
    Korel Laloix: Why you say that?
    Mickorod Renard: because running and being in that zone,,past the pain barrier is a nice place to be
    Mickorod Renard: it reminds me of many things
    Mickorod Renard: but mainly a detachment of some aspects and a hightened awareness in others
    Mickorod Renard: but too deep to go into today,,methinks
    Bleu Oleander: one could say that about all of life
    Korel Laloix: I do get into a zone for sure.
    Mickorod Renard: for sure, but generally in mainstream life one gets caught up in thoughts that are perhaps not what you want
    Korel Laloix: It is when I pray and meditate and get seom things out of my system.
    Mickorod Renard: thats nice
    Korel Laloix: That is true.. been going ot srhinks now for 5 years to help get those thougts out of my sytem.
    Bleu Oleander: please excuse me ... must run early today :)
    Mickorod Renard: I think we all suffer with thoughts like that but in varying degree's,,funnily enough, they are relative to ones position,,so everyone suffers,,even those with little to worry about,,and those with much
    Bleu Oleander: thanks for the conversation
    Mickorod Renard: Bye Brue,,nice cin ya
    Bleu Oleander: take care bfn
    Mickorod Renard: Bleu

    Mickorod Renard: I was hoping to get out on my bike today
    Mickorod Renard: but its now too late in the day
    Mickorod Renard: being out on the bike also helps me ,,a release from the usual thoughts
    Mickorod Renard: what is your double masters in Korel?
    Korel Laloix: Agreed on that one... when I get out on the highway at cruise speed on my bike it is very calming.. opens my thoughts.
    Korel Laloix: In a different wya from running though.
    Mickorod Renard: yes
    Mickorod Renard: :))
    Korel Laloix: Epidemiolgoy and Biostats.
    Mickorod Renard: so to do with the skin?
    Mickorod Renard: pardon my ignorance
    Mickorod Renard: my skin is troublesome
    Mickorod Renard: had acne as a lad and still do sometimes
    Korel Laloix: No.. smiles.. the study of epidemics, not the epidermus.
    Mickorod Renard: ahh
    Mickorod Renard: he he
    Mickorod Renard: I am gonna have the flu jab soon
    Korel Laloix: I have pretty bad acne as well.. espeically for my age.
    Korel Laloix: It can be good for a lot of people.
    Mickorod Renard: what, acne?
    Korel Laloix: Unles you are contraindicated or travel outside fo your area a lot.
    Mickorod Renard: ahh the flu jab
    Korel Laloix: Yes... and I have a lot of bad scars as well that give me issues.
    Mickorod Renard: yea, I find,,like just at this time,,it crops up,,cos of the change of season
    Mickorod Renard: like I now have the heating on
    Mickorod Renard: and my body is getting adjusted all over
    Mickorod Renard: I was amazed at how many people died due to the plague,,(black death ) in England
    Korel Laloix: Well all over erupe and Asia is well documented.
    Mickorod Renard: its frightening to think that something like that could happen again
    Korel Laloix: And when they brought the plauges and small pox to the Americas, some thing that upwards of 60percent of the native population died.
    Mickorod Renard: I wondered at one time whether aids would become as bad,,but that seems to have faded away
    Korel Laloix: It is a possibility.
    Mickorod Renard: yes, thats scary Korel
    Korel Laloix: Not really.... aids still kills huge numbbers... it is just mostly in africa or in countries that don't track.
    Mickorod Renard: I see
    Korel Laloix: And talking about AIDS epidemiology is not politicially correct... frowns
    Korel Laloix: So it does not get the attention it realy needs.
    Mickorod Renard: I remember years back,,,there was rumours that it was purposly developed
    Mickorod Renard: but that I guess was just a conspiracy theory
    Mickorod Renard: but it , or that sort of thing could happen,,should some pwer have an adgenda
    Mickorod Renard: agenda
    Korel Laloix: Actually, I read an article that the idea othe AIDS was manumatured was a deliverate campaing by the USSR for political warfare in Africa.
    Korel Laloix: need to find a source for that though.

    Mickorod Renard: manufactured? as in a conspiracy created to have political benefit for the ussr?in africa
    Mickorod Renard: sounds possible
    Korel Laloix: Yes.
    Korel Laloix: But I do not have a source for that.
    Korel Laloix: Very hard to sort out the bs from the facts sometimes.
    Mickorod Renard: yes, I agree
    Mickorod Renard: and the reverse,,I find I am left thinking that I am not being given all the truth too..sometimes
    Mickorod Renard: and that is frustrating
    Korel Laloix: You do have to dig for somethings.
    Korel Laloix: OK.. Need to get to work or something... thansk for the chat.
    Mickorod Renard: I think, if many folk are like me,,at PaB I am looking for the answers to the meaning of lfe
    Korel Laloix: Nice o have a quiet morning.
    Mickorod Renard: ohh ok,,bye
    Mickorod Renard: nice seeing uanswers to the meaning of lfe
    Korel Laloix: That is not what I am looking for.. feel I already have found that.
    Mickorod Renard: take care
    Korel Laloix: But for each their won...
    Mickorod Renard: thats great
    Korel Laloix: Ciao bello.
    Mickorod Renard: ciao
