    That afternoon, I was asleep in RL in Tokyo. Stim was the guardian for that slot, but couldn’t get in in time, so instead Fael later sent me the chat log. The comments are mine.

    When Fael entered, Adams, Delani and Sky were already there.

    Sky Szimmer: ok. haven’t been here in a while. have both of you been coming to this long
    Delani Gabardini: here comes fael
    Fael Illyar: Hello :)
    Sky Szimmer: wonderful entrance!
    Faenik: could be
    Adams Rubble: This is my fourth time
    Delani Gabardini: fael - u look like a mermaid
    Delani Gabardini: I have been here before
    Adams Rubble: Hello Fael
    Delani Gabardini: u look lovely fael
    Fael Illyar: thank you :)
    Sky Szimmer: How are the 9 sec been for you all?
    Adams Rubble: I started making a little progress today
    Delani Gabardini: going well
    Fael Illyar: I’ve been coming here for a little over a week
    Delani Gabardini: i think isen and moon are coming
    Sky Szimmer: great.
    Delani Gabardini: Moon is on the phone right now

    I was glad to see Sky playing the role of guardian, effectively, that session.

    Sky Szimmer: so what do you think so far, Adams
    Adams Rubble: These sessions have been helpful
    Adams Rubble: Yesterday Fael remarked about how when she started she was focused on the body
    Adams Rubble: That suggestion got me started to today
    Adams Rubble: Instead of just hearing sounds I became aware of myself
    Adams Rubble: I started a blog too
    Sky Szimmer: Oh? what do you mean? physically?
    Delani Gabardini: good for u adams
    Faenik: ah :)
    Adams Rubble: It showed I had some continuity between the 9 second intervals
    Sky Szimmer: wow!
    Adams Rubble: Somewhere in my brain the thoughts lingered
    Fael Illyar: Nice to hear you’re getting started :)
    Adams Rubble: Thanks
    Sky Szimmer: can you say more Adams about becoming aware of yourself and not the sounds
    Adams Rubble: Originally I was focused on the environmental noise
    Adams Rubble: At one point today I could feel the inside of my skull
    Adams Rubble: I was aware of the air rushing through my nose like a wind tunnel
    Delani Gabardini: awareness - good
    Adams Rubble: It made me think how glad I was to be alive

    How wonderful to hear these reports of things happening and stirring in so many different ways, soon after starting the PaB explorations!

    Sky Szimmer: that’s wonderful
    Sky Szimmer: there are so many new faces here. this has grown so much since Pema started a month of so ago
    Fael Illyar: seems to be growing quite fast :)
    Sky Szimmer: has it been hard to keep up with everyone?
    Adams Rubble: ?
    Delani Gabardini: what does that mean, sky
    Sky Szimmer: well, at the beginning, I got to know some of the people just through regular visits, but then it has been awhile,
    Sky Szimmer: then there are many new players joining, and was just wondering if you all have gotten to know each other over your visits
    Adams Rubble: Do you mean being aware of other people’s progress or just the people?
    Delani Gabardini: I knew most of these before PaB
    Sky Szimmer: both
    Delani Gabardini: that is why i am here
    Faenik: ah :)
    Delani Gabardini: except for u and adams
    Adams Rubble: I am getting to know people but I have not been regular in my attendance
    Adams Rubble: I have gotten encouragement from hearing other people talk about their experiences
    Adams Rubble: received
    Delani Gabardini: hey Moon
    Fael Illyar: There are a few people I see on the blogs in sessions I haven’t been a part of that I don’t know
    Adams Rubble: Hello Moon
    Moon Fargis: hello everyone
    Fael Illyar: Hi Moon
    Delani Gabardini: why is isen over there?

    Moon arrived, followed by Isen.

    Fael Illyar: Hi Isen
    Delani Gabardini: hi isen
    Adams Rubble: Hello Isen
    Isen Enzo: Greetings all.
    Moon Fargis: ok phonecall over.. lets pab :)
    Delani Gabardini: go for it
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Isen Enzo: We are it!
    Delani Gabardini: is that what I think it is
    Moon Fargis: so what did you talked about already?
    Delani Gabardini: we r a quiet group today
    Moon Fargis: ohh
    Isen Enzo: We could meditate…
    Delani Gabardini: but we won’t be for long I suspect
    Moon Fargis: :)
    Moon Fargis: adams: did we met before?
    Adams Rubble: Yes
    Adams Rubble: I am dressed quite differently
    Moon Fargis: hmm i really cant remember names:)
    Fael Illyar: I’m dressed rather differently too :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Sky Szimmer: Wanted to talk about being relaxed as part of dropping
    Moon Fargis: yes ariel..ehhm i mean fael
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.

    Sky focused on the notion of stopping and dropping. I had mentioned those a few times before, and in turn much of what I know about them I have learned from Stim. Sky in RL has attended many of the teaching sessions of Stim, Steven Tainer in RL, so she has heard them before as well. Of course, in PaB we will have to find our own way of making these ideas come to life.

    Sky Szimmer: What have your experiences with dropping?
    Sky Szimmer: or stopping?
    Moon Fargis: what do you drop ?
    Sky Szimmer: self, ego whatever delusions there are
    Fael Illyar: :)
    Isen Enzo: The BIG drop!
    Delani Gabardini: ego is like velcro
    Isen Enzo: sticky?
    Sky Szimmer: the Big drop. i like that
    Delani Gabardini: yes hard to remove
    Isen Enzo: feathers are natures velcro…
    Moon Fargis: do you think the ego is dropable? wouldnt that mean you have to pick it up again ?

    The topic of dropping was dropped quite quickly.

    Isen Enzo: yes- and what about “relax”- does that imply that we need to “lax again”?
    Isen Enzo: lax on…
    Isen Enzo: lax off..
    Delani Gabardini: deep thinking isen
    Isen Enzo: i worry about these things…
    Isen Enzo: am i too lax?
    Delani Gabardini: that is just your ego
    Sky Szimmer: it is a good point Isen
    Isen Enzo: relax about the laxity?
    Delani Gabardini: I don’t think u have too much lax, IMAO
    Isen Enzo: like “recreate”…. I like that idea…
    Delani Gabardini: brb
    Isen Enzo: re-create…
    Isen Enzo: nice idea..
    Isen Enzo: play as recreation…
    Isen Enzo: play as re-creation…
    Isen Enzo: PaBing?
    Sky Szimmer: that is an interesting thought about play as recreation
    Faenik: ah :)
    Adams Rubble: and re-creation
    Isen Enzo: mostly we think, I think, of play as a recreational activity..
    Sky Szimmer: sorry folks, but I got to run. nice meeting you all.

    After this re-creative session, Sky had to leave, and so had Adams.

    Adams Rubble: Sorry, I must slip away. bye everyone
    Moon Fargis: ok bye sky
    Moon Fargis: uhm bye adams
    Isen Enzo: my deep thoughts run the avs away…
    Sky Szimmer: BTW who is the guardian for this session?
    Isen Enzo: maybe not so deep…
    Moon Fargis: no they just re-create theirself
    Sky Szimmer: it was deep Isen. I appreciated it. kid needs attention

    Sky was refering to her infant in RL who she needed to look after.

    Moon Fargis: hm well i guess fael
    Isen Enzo: over and over again..
    Isen Enzo: ok
    Isen Enzo: np
    Moon Fargis: fael?
    Moon Fargis: Fael?!
    Moon Fargis: FAEL?!
    Moon Fargis: ~`~*Rooaarr*~`~
    Isen Enzo: fael may be more comfortable in the pond…
    Faenik loves wells!
    Isen Enzo: Well, Moon- it looks like you and I…
    Moon Fargis: gonnng
    Isen Enzo: We can let it RIP!!!
    Isen Enzo: go wild…

    Fael returned, and so did Delani.

    Fael Illyar: oh, sorry, was talking on phone

    Delani Gabardini: Hi rajah

    Moon Fargis: well heh me either.. but since you where here since the beginning i guess your log is more complete now
    Fael Illyar: ah, schedule says it’s stim’s shift

    And so it was, but Stim couldn’t make it, so I’m glad that Fael caught the script. Thank you, Fael!

    Isen Enzo: That’s better…

    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
