    Solobill was the guardian, that afternoon. The comments to his chat log are mine, while the title is his.

    Adams, Fael and Moon seem to arrive at about the same time that Solobill appeared.

    Fael Illyar: Hello Solo :)
    Solobill Laville: Hello!
    Adams Rubble: Hello Bill, Fael, Moon
    Moon Fargis: hi everyone
    Solobill Laville: Hello!
    Fael Illyar: Hello Adams :)
    Adams Rubble: What is jealousy?
    Moon Fargis opens his dict
    Solobill Laville: Craving
    Adams Rubble: Is that all?
    Moon Fargis opens his dict again
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Solobill Laville: Yes, really
    Adams Rubble: OK, then
    Solobill Laville: :)
    Solobill Laville: What do you think it is Adams?
    Adams Rubble: I was wondering it was just a result of desire
    Adams Rubble: If it is craving then it is
    Adams Rubble: It seemed to be something more
    Solobill Laville: I think there is a great deal of psychology in the middle there
    Solobill Laville: All sorts of things that can help to determine whys
    Solobill Laville: But ultimately, yes, desire = craving
    Solobill Laville: Of course, *my opinion*
    Solobill Laville: ;)
    Adams Rubble: :)

    Back to jealousy.

    Solobill Laville: Have you been focusing on jealousy Adams?
    Adams Rubble wonders what Moon’s dictionary thinks
    Adams Rubble: Not really Bill. I am focusing on things in the way
    Adams Rubble: Kind of identifying them
    Solobill Laville: That is really wonderful
    Solobill Laville: Have you been able to clearly identify some of things to yourself?
    Moon Fargis: hmm i think, 1 my tea is too hot, 2. why i am sitting that uncomfortable on this pillow 3. jealousy is just a mixture feeling of desire, ownership needment and fear of losing something
    Adams Rubble: ah fear, that is one thought that had come to me earlier. Thanks Moon :)
    Solobill Laville: Fear of loss is still ultimately an attachment to that which is potentially lost
    Solobill Laville: THus the desire to keep it
    Adams Rubble: yes, still ultimately desire
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Solobill Laville: But, I understand that is a sweeping statement
    Solobill Laville: The other day
    Adams Rubble: I am not much of a philosophical bent
    Solobill Laville: I was sitting in my bedroom
    Solobill Laville: and I was frustrated with something
    Solobill Laville: and I felt a quick rise of anger in my chest
    Solobill Laville: and I said, “Ah! there is a feeling of anger!”
    Solobill Laville: And it was gone
    Adams Rubble: That’s great Bill
    Solobill Laville: It is like you catch the feeling with its hand in the cookie jar
    Solobill Laville: Then it slinks away…
    Solobill Laville: poof, gone
    Moon Fargis: or hug the crying child
    Solobill Laville: Yes, I have a lot of hugging crying children at my place too
    Solobill Laville: :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Solobill Laville: Just learning to ride bikes….
    Moon Fargis: are you a teacher in this?
    Moon Fargis: driving bikes?
    Solobill Laville: hehe, no pretty much self-taught in most things
    Solobill Laville: But we are our own best teachers ;)
    Solobill Laville: Lovely flowers in your hair Fael!
    Solobill Laville: :)

    Back to Play as Being.

    Solobill Laville: How goes your PaB efforts Adams? I am way behind in my reading…
    Fael Illyar: Thank you solo :)
    Adams Rubble: Well, it has its ups and downs (she says uncommitted)
    Solobill Laville: :)
    Adams Rubble: I have been trying to sum everything up
    Adams Rubble: what I learned in the last 3 weeks
    Adams Rubble: It may be a futile effort
    Solobill Laville: You have had some real progress on things, then? :)
    Adams Rubble: I have had a few, what I term “breakthroughs” in the 3 weeks
    Moon Fargis: ahh good
    Solobill Laville: Wow, that is wonderful
    Adams Rubble: and then there seems to be a lag
    Adams Rubble: and then some readjustment
    Moon Fargis: rl lag ?:)
    Adams Rubble: haha
    Fael Illyar: Sorry, I’m doing some IMs so mostly not really here
    Solobill Laville: that’s ok, Fael
    Adams Rubble: so I am in a slow down period today
    Adams Rubble: or trying to be :)
    Solobill Laville: Slow down periods are important

    Faenik impersonations!

    Adams Rubble: Faenik isn’t here?
    Adams Rubble: ah
    Solobill Laville: could be
    Adams Rubble: indeed?
    Moon Fargis: i love wells
    Solobill Laville: ;)
    Solobill Laville: hehe
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Solobill Laville: i love wells too
    Moon Fargis: well..
    Adams Rubble: meh :)
    Solobill Laville: Oh, don’t get me started!!!
    Solobill Laville: meh!
    Solobill Laville: :)
    Solobill Laville: Moon, do you have a timer for every 15 minutes? Or how often are you PaB-ing?
    Moon Fargis: i time myself.. since mostly got a clock in front of my view
    Solobill Laville: Ah
    Adams Rubble: Hi Pia
    Moon Fargis: at work i only have to look up and see the clock so its easy and here are our pabbells
    Solobill Laville: Hey there Pia!
    Moon Fargis: hi pia
    Solobill Laville: Yes
    Pia Iger: Hi, hi, hi
    Adams Rubble: hai

    Pia joined the group.

    Solobill Laville: You know, I just had a though
    Solobill Laville: *thought
    Solobill Laville: I don’t use any timer
    Solobill Laville: SO I “let go” (that’s what I call it) when it occurs to me
    Adams Rubble: I have trouble either remembering mine or it not working correctly
    Solobill Laville: So what happens now, and has for several weeks
    Solobill Laville: is that I have conditioned myself in a way
    Solobill Laville: When things get stressful, or I get “Caught up in the weeds”
    Solobill Laville: I feel it is time
    Pia Iger: I thought that way too.
    Moon Fargis: ah one thing i noticed when i once started zazen yeaaars ago.. i began to see the beauty in things.. like a little branch wich leafs on it
    Pia Iger: a while ago
    Solobill Laville: And - lo - I’m back and centered
    Moon Fargis: please tell me when this happens to you too
    Solobill Laville: Moon, that is a lovely vision
    Pia Iger: what is wich leaf?
    Adams Rubble: It happens to me after cataloging a number of Japanese paintings
    Solobill Laville: My experience is similar, but I can’t describe it such
    Moon Fargis: pia: just look at a tree and focus a little branch outside of it and soo how its grown.. and blows in the wind…
    Faenik: indeed?
    Pia Iger: ok.
    Moon Fargis: before i started with zen i didnt even noticed the tree as nice
    Solobill Laville: That is a great example Moon
    Solobill Laville: Would you call that attention, perhaps?

    Attention, appreciation, awareness.

    Pia Iger: Seems we all feel this way after PaB for a while, appreciation of beauty
    Pia Iger: Solo, not just attention. also appreciation
    Adams Rubble: It is a matter of seeing
    Adams Rubble: yes appreciation too
    Moon Fargis: + awareness:)
    Moon Fargis: 3 A words
    Moon Fargis: maybe we should call that Triple A effect:)
    Solobill Laville: They are all good!
    Pia Iger: cool!
    Solobill Laville: There was a Zen master, I forget who
    Solobill Laville: whose teaching he summarized as
    Solobill Laville: Attention! Attention! Attention!
    Solobill Laville: :)
    Moon Fargis: :)
    Pia Iger: my elementary teachers said that too:))
    Solobill Laville: lol!
    Solobill Laville: Mine said - detention!
    Solobill Laville: just kidding…
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Pia Iger: that was not his fault.
    Adams Rubble: I must leave you all. bye everyone. thanks for good chat. bye:
    Solobill Laville: Bye Adams

    Adams left, and Pia brought up boredom.

    Pia Iger: I feel bored, recently.
    Solobill Laville: Ah, with what?
    Fael Illyar: try dropping the boredom :)
    Pia Iger: Fael, any tips?
    Fael Illyar: well, to me it seems boredom is desire for something to happen so you just drop the desire :)
    Solobill Laville: Boredom, also, is a feeling like others
    Solobill Laville: It can help sometimes to identify it
    Solobill Laville: Ah, boredom
    Faenik loves wells!
    Solobill Laville: Is this a RL boredom generally?
    Pia Iger: yes.
    Pia Iger: maybe I am not hung onto anything now, feel empty
    Pia Iger: how to live with nothingness?
    Moon Fargis: live zen :)
    Pia Iger: Moon, can you give more hints?
    Moon Fargis: well… living with nothingness reminds me on zen.. when you reduce your ego to nothing.. maybe this emptiness in a unusual state during your daily routine is boringness because you brain didn’t come down yet and wants something todo..do i zen you learn yourself to reduce this feeling of boredness
    Solobill Laville: Moon and I share a Zen bias, Pia
    Pia Iger: We are quited used to outside stimulation.
    Pia Iger: Now I kind of distance myself from those stimulations
    Pia Iger: feel not much happening to my mind.
    Moon Fargis: well human mind always DESIRE for something new
    Moon Fargis: new to learn.. new to know
    Moon Fargis: if that also doesn’t happen it get bored too
    Moon Fargis: so we have to differ 2 kinds of boredness
    Pia Iger: right
    Moon Fargis: the one that desires new and the one that desires more action
    Moon Fargis: or a mixture of it can also be possible of course
    Moon Fargis: ah darn emotions right ?:)
    Solobill Laville: Yep

    Pia gave an interesting interpretation to her boredom, in terms of dropping the old.

    Pia Iger: It can also mean the time for me to explore new territories.
    Solobill Laville: In those kinds of situations, which we all feel I’m certain
    Faenik: why not?
    Solobill Laville: I do try to settle my mind as much as possible
    Solobill Laville: It seems sometimes there are ‘outside’ things that affect us
    Solobill Laville: though, really, it is just something ‘within’ us
    Moon Fargis: well yes mostly you body affect you :)
    Solobill Laville: Right
    Pia Iger: in what way?
    Moon Fargis: solo: your eyes see nothing new.. Your ears hear nothing new… then our mind gets bored
    Moon Fargis: same with all other senses come from body
    Moon Fargis: atleast you trust your body and what he tells you
    Moon Fargis: if you get the awareness that your body “lies” you … then you wont be attached to it that much anymore.. this is the first step to a greater being of awareness
    Moon Fargis: aware that your body tells you how reality is..what reality is
    Solobill Laville: An awareness of the miracle of the leaf on the twig on the tree
    Solobill Laville: That is always a new thing
    Pia Iger: I have heard the strong language from my body
    Solobill Laville: :)
    Pia Iger: fatigue,
    Pia Iger: stuffed,
    Pia Iger: energetic,
    Pia Iger: …
    Faenik loves wells!
    Moon Fargis: body babbling :)
    Pia Iger: it calls my attention
    Pia Iger: and it is important, I believe.
    Moon Fargis: its important not to ignore it.. its wise not to be attached to it
    Pia Iger: well said.
    Faenik: ah :)
