    Pema wrote the following note:

    Moon was the guardian that night, which was great, since I could not be at the tea house in time, given that I was taking a bullet train from Kyoto to Tokyo, letting me get into my hotel a quarter of an hour after the starting time of 1:00 am SLT. Here is the log with commentary provided by Moon.

    Arriving at 1 AM on the tea house, none where online so far, so i just sit down and made some tea. Soon hotaru showed up for a little talk.

    This part is from Hotaru’s log because I nearly crashed and had to relogin:

    Moon Fargis: hi hotaru
    Hotaru Myoo Hi moon
    Hotaru Myoo com se va?
    Moon Fargis: uhm ?
    Hotaru Myoo how are u?
    Moon Fargis: ahhh thanks im fine, and how are you?
    Hotaru Myoo well
    Hotaru Myoo I fell asleep on my best friend…
    Hotaru Myoo feel a bit sheepish about that
    Hotaru Myoo woke up just short of saying goodnight
    Moon Fargis: hehe i think your best friend wont be mad with you about that
    Hotaru Myoo hope not hope to see him in a few hours
    Hotaru Myoo how is the PaB thingy going for you
    Moon Fargis: ohw why not hoping to see him when he is your best friend?
    Hotaru Myoo ?
    Hotaru Myoo good point
    Moon Fargis: good… seems pema didnt made it today, are you a guardian too?
    Hotaru Myoo yes
    Hotaru Myoo teusday nights
    Moon Fargis: ahh
    Hotaru Myoo for now
    Hotaru Myoo life will become chaotic pretty soon
    Moon Fargis: okay please hold on a second sl acting up strange atm i need a relogin or i crash
    Hotaru Myoo you are on European time yes?
    Moon Fargis: yes brb
    Hotaru Myoo k
    Hotaru Myoo take your time
    Hotaru Myoo I will hold down the fort
    Hotaru Myoo hi Logan
    Hotaru Myoo com se va?

    from this Part my log continues:

    Hotaru Myoo: Hi moon wb
    Moon Fargis: re
    Moon Fargis: ahh pema is online
    Hotaru Myoo: si
    Hotaru Myoo: i see
    Moon Fargis: so you said your life will be chaotic in the near time?
    Hotaru Myoo: traveling
    Hotaru Myoo: hope to meet up with pema in kyoto
    Moon Fargis: ahhh yes

    Soon Pema also appeared.

    Hotaru Myoo: hi pema
    Pema Pera: Well, when I hear my name, I appear!

    This sentence reminded me from a german speaking wich says “Wenn man vom teufel spricht…” wich is translated like “If you talk from the devil…” This speaking comes from the old belief that when you call the name of the devil he will appear.

    Hotaru Myoo: com se va
    Moon Fargis: huhu pema
    Pema Pera: Hi Hotaru!
    Pema Pera: Hi Moon, thanks for standing in here for me :-)
    Moon Fargis: np:)
    Hotaru Myoo: greetings and salutations
    Hotaru Myoo: btw moon..
    Hotaru Myoo: I notice your wheel
    Hotaru Myoo: I know you have worn it for some time
    Hotaru Myoo: during sittings…
    Hotaru Myoo: I have noticed it
    Moon Fargis: well its hard not to notice it i think :)
    Hotaru Myoo: we talked about a wonky wheel
    Moon Fargis: wonky wheel?
    Moon Fargis: whats that ?
    Hotaru Myoo: dukka
    Moon Fargis: aha?
    Hotaru Myoo: a friend had talked about a wheel in context
    Hotaru Myoo: wobbling offcenter
    Hotaru Myoo: stil attached
    Hotaru Myoo: but wobbly
    Hotaru Myoo: and in the context of reality
    Hotaru Myoo: it became a metaphor for suffering
    Moon Fargis: the wheel?
    Hotaru Myoo: the movement of the wheel
    Moon Fargis: ahh
    Hotaru Myoo: ancient sanskrit described it as dukka
    Hotaru Myoo: I am not so familiar…
    Moon Fargis: ofcourse alsways depends on the kid of buddhism you are in.. some see this wheel as a sign of tifferent hells/heaven of rebirth
    Hotaru Myoo: but I thought you might have a reflection on that thought
    Moon Fargis: some just see it as a sign of buddhism, i see it as a metapher of the 8 fold path
    Hotaru Myoo: you know Isen
    Moon Fargis: each branch one path
    Moon Fargis: ofcourse i know isen :)
    Hotaru Myoo: yes
    Moon Fargis: our babbling monk in itsari
    Hotaru Myoo: it was his discovery
    Moon Fargis: well well hehe

    At this time i remindes that isen sells books and got alot of
    time for thinking/reading about such things:)

    Hotaru Myoo: a sort of epiphany
    Hotaru Myoo: in the context of PaB
    Hotaru Myoo: what are your thoughts?
    Moon Fargis: well atleast its always a think about what people think from their social knowledge… do you know the hackekreutz from hitlers regime?
    Hotaru Myoo: no
    logan1717 Yoshikawa: tnx
    Moon Fargis: hackenkreuz i mean.. the symbil from his regime
    Moon Fargis: i dont know how you call it in english
    Moon Fargis: the sign he had on al of his flags
    Hotaru Myoo: swaztika?
    Hotaru Myoo: yes
    Moon Fargis: yes i see you already noticed it that its somek ind of uck bringing symbol in india
    Pema Pera: Logan, we get together here a few times every day, and anyone is welcome to join us
    Moon Fargis: so its always a mater of context how you see signs
