    Adams Rubble was the guardian and the comments are from Adams

    Steve and Angi were already at the pavilion when I arrived

    Angi Dreadlow: Hi Adams
    Adams Rubble: Hello Angi
    Adams Rubble: Hello Steve
    Adams Rubble: Angi, I don;t think I have met you
    stevenaia Michinaga: Hi I;m still rezzing
    Angi Dreadlow: It is my first time here.
    stevenaia Michinaga: I invited Angi
    Adams Rubble: Oh, welcome then
    Angi Dreadlow: Stevenaia has been kind enough to extend an invite.
    Adams Rubble: Has Steve told you all about us
    Angi Dreadlow: Thanks Adams
    stevenaia Michinaga: I gave her the wiki,
    Angi Dreadlow: He has send me a couple of links.
    Adams Rubble: whoops, lag
    Adams Rubble: Great
    stevenaia Michinaga: take a moment and check them out Angi
    Angi Dreadlow: But I am afraid there is much more i suspect (which might be interesting ) than the quick reads update me abt
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Adams Rubble: Have Steve told you that we log our conversations
    Adams Rubble: do you have objection to your comments appearing at our website
    Angi Dreadlow: But i might not stay for long.
    Angi Dreadlow: None
    stevenaia Michinaga: have a seat
    Adams Rubble: Terrific!

    Gaya and Doug join us

    doug Sosa: got it, hi.
    Adams Rubble: Hi Doug
    Adams Rubble: Hi Gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have been away for a week at the shore and have only been reading the emails
    Adams Rubble: Steve, it has been quite a week here :)
    doug Sosa: shore, so evocative.
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    Adams Rubble: Pema's experiemnt has brought on many different expereinces for different people

    Pia then walked in and joined us

    Adams Rubble: Hi Pia
    stevenaia Michinaga: the shore is about the only time I read for pleasure
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, I have been following that thread
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Pia
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Pia Iger: Hi, all. and wb, Steve
    doug Sosa: hi pia
    Angi Dreadlow: Hello Gaya,Doug,Pia.
    Adams Rubble thinks Steve looks well rested
    stevenaia Michinaga: I thought I would focus on the 9 second moment while on vacation,,, alas my book consumed me instead
    doug Sosa: hi angl

    At times I was having two or more conversations at once as people were coming and going

    Adams Rubble: your book?
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, I was reading Pillars of the Earth. a book about the middle ages (Fiction)
    Adams Rubble: Angi, not to put you on the spot, do you have any questions about our group?
    Adams Rubble: oh yes, Steve, thanks. Any relation to PaB?
    stevenaia Michinaga: none at all
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Angi Dreadlow: Adams,Thanks for checking.None yet.I will mostly try and absorb and perhaps read your website later when i find time.
    Adams Rubble: a good vacation then :)
    doug Sosa: no way, everything is connected in one or two steps! :)
    Adams Rubble: OK Angi, plase feel free to ask :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: true doug
    doug Sosa: sometimes it feels right and good just to sit here quietly.
    Adams Rubble understands Doug's sentiment
    stevenaia Michinaga: this book had an unusual sense of reality for me, more like a good movie, never read a book and had that experience
    stevenaia Michinaga: but then, that could also be a residual affect of SL
    Adams Rubble: You mean the fancifulness of SL?
    stevenaia Michinaga: this place reads like relaity too
    Adams Rubble: Oh yes
    Angi Dreadlow: This place has a possibility of reality.
    Adams Rubble: These meetings are very real
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    doug Sosa: and they are.
    stevenaia Michinaga: No, aspects of of the book I related to on an emotional level, like when you get teary eyed while watching a movie
    Adams Rubble: Has everyone here had a chance to talk about their experiences with Pema's You see, Being sees experiment?

    I introduced the topic of the You see, Being sees experiement but I was in one of those non-stop typing modes. I stood up to stop and instead shot up into the air

    Adams Rubble: whoops
    Pia Iger: woops, I thought Adams wanted to perform.
    doug Sosa: can you say in a sentence what it is?
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Adams Rubble: haha Pia
    doug Sosa: wow you are tall!
    Adams Rubble: the experiement, Steve?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I read about it this week, but I can say I took it very far
    Adams Rubble: We were asked to see though our eyes for a minute; then for another minute to see what Being sees
    Adams Rubble: People started having wild experiences
    stevenaia Michinaga: tried it once, and there was a nice contrast in my perception
    Adams Rubble: You must look at Storm's blog
    Gaya Ethaniel: through our eyes, we notice mostly bodily movements such as heartbeat, think through Being's eyes, other things around us are seen
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have
    Adams Rubble: Have you seen mine?
    stevenaia Michinaga: no, I just go back on the web today, I just had email in vacation

    I begin to tell the group about my week

    Adams Rubble: I had two strong experiences, actually maybe three
    Adams Rubble: the first was that during a lightning storm I had my first recognition of Being
    Pia Iger: ah!
    Adams Rubble: then I had a wild dream where I identified two major identity/attachments
    Adams Rubble: They were a "I can't" and "I shouldn't"
    Adams Rubble: I won;t go into detail since most of it is in the blog
    Adams Rubble: Then most important of all I had what seems to me to be a mystical-like experience
    Adams Rubble: I was looking for God/Being everywhere
    stevenaia Michinaga: how often do you try?
    Adams Rubble: In one session I was looking for it in myself
    Adams Rubble: Nothing inside
    Adams Rubble: I began to pan around myself, sort of in a circular motion
    Adams Rubble: and all of the sudden I began to float
    Adams Rubble: I floated up into the sky
    Adams Rubble: more like shot into the sky
    Adams Rubble: through two clouds toward the sun
    Adams Rubble: then I hestitated, not knowing what I should be seeing
    Adams Rubble: suddenly I saw a traditional Judeo-Christian God
    Adams Rubble: sitting in a lotus position on the cloud
    Angi Dreadlow: Stevenaia/Adams/All ...I did know I would have to leave the meeting soon before i started today.And it is that time now.
    Adams Rubble: when God smiles it is contagious
    Adams Rubble: and so I started smiling
    Adams Rubble: he smiled at me
    stevenaia Michinaga: thank for joining us Angi
    Adams Rubble: and then I was interrupted (I was at work)
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Angi Dreadlow: Namastey Gaya.Thanks All.

    Angi leaves and James arrives wearing a tag that says "I do not like you"

    Adams Rubble: Hello james
    James Mai: hello
    Pia Iger: good to see you, Angi
    Adams Rubble: Bye Angi
    Adams Rubble: James, have you been here before?
    Angi Dreadlow: I will drop you a message Stevenaia,to learn if there is a group I can join to be back here,ones I have read more from the website.thanks for the invite today
    Adams Rubble: I hope your tag isn't directed at me :)
    James Mai: someone did it as a joke and i dont know how to change it
    Adams Rubble: Ah, that we can help you with

    Rajah and Ami were next to drift into the pavilion

    Pia Iger: Hi, Ami,
    Ami Poliatevska: H
    Adams Rubble: go to to your local chat and then to contacts and then to the group tag above and choose another group
    Ami Poliatevska: Hi
    Adams Rubble: to be activve
    stevenaia Michinaga: Hi Rajah
    Ami Poliatevska: Hi :)
    Adams Rubble: Hi Ami
    Adams Rubble: Have you been here before Ami?
    Adams Rubble: Hi Rajah
    Ami Poliatevska: no first time
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Gaya Ethaniel: terrible lags
    Adams Rubble: We are a Play as Being group
    Ami Poliatevska: Being what?
    Rajah Yalin: hi all
    Adams Rubble: we stop every 15 minutes and meditate for 9 seconds
    Ami Poliatevska: Cool
    Adams Rubble: We meet here every four houses and 1, 7, 1 and 7 SLT time
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    stevenaia Michinaga: this is your first day in SL, Welcome and happy birthday
    Adams Rubble: there is a website at htp;//playasbeing.wiki.is/
    Adams Rubble: is that right everyone?
    Pia Iger: yes.
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Ami Poliatevska: Cool
    Adams Rubble: We record the chat and it is put on the website
    Ami Poliatevska: I will have to check it out
    Adams Rubble: Do either of you, Ami or James have any objection to that?
    James Mai: no
    Adams Rubble: Thank you James
    Ami Poliatevska: No, But I will be going to explore a bit more
    Adams Rubble: Yes, of course. thank you
    Ami Poliatevska: Enjoy your meditation, peace be with you
    Pia Iger: enjoy, Ami
    Adams Rubble: bye Ami
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Rajah Yalin: take care
    Adams Rubble: Pia, how have your experiences been with the new experiment?

    With that Ami departs and Starseed replaces her

    Adams Rubble: Hello Starseed
    Starseed Xue: Hello everyone
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Rajah Yalin: hi Star
    Adams Rubble: Starseed, you have been here before, correct?
    James Mai: hello
    Pia Iger: I was thinking of your "mystical-like experience'
    Starseed Xue: hi ryes, this is my second time
    doug Sosa: good.
    Adams Rubble: great Starseed
    Adams Rubble: yes Pia?
    doug Sosa: we were going to fix James's tag, but i don't know how
    Rajah Yalin: go to communicate, contacts, then groups
    Pia Iger: the images sounds out of the world, but the feeling is familiar.
    Rajah Yalin: activate a different group (or none) and it should change
    Adams Rubble: I somehow find that....don't know what word I want
    Adams Rubble: I am happy that is so, Pia
    Gaya Ethaniel wishes good day and leave quietly
    Adams Rubble: bye Gaya :)

    Gaya slips quietly away into the afternoon

    James Mai: thank you
    Rajah Yalin: take care Gaya

    I misunderstand that James is thanking Rajah and think he is leaving

    Adams Rubble: Are you leaving, James?
    Adams Rubble: nice to meet you
    Pia Iger: I was getting a message, when I do new YSBS, "that you are being loved", I feel it is similar to yours, though with different forms.
    Adams Rubble: oh, it's the tag. sorry
    Adams Rubble: That is interesting that we both got that message, Pia
    Pia Iger: yes, the essence of the message is same, different ppl has different images.
    Adams Rubble: yes, exactly
    Pia Iger: so I don't feel your mystical images are too far stretched.

    Then I misunderstand Doug; am I losing it?

    doug Sosa: does being see me? i can't figure it out.
    Adams Rubble: It was a wonderful experience and I was weak for awhile afterward
    Adams Rubble: I see you Doug :)
    Adams Rubble: Oh, I am dense
    Pia Iger: weak means mentally exhausted?
    Adams Rubble: Sorry Doug
    Adams Rubble: yes, mentally exhausted, physically weak
    Adams Rubble: Doug, I have a bit of that for the next part
    James Mai: hey i just had a rebirthing experience
    Rajah Yalin: oh?
    doug Sosa: nice.
    Pia Iger: how it feel, James?
    Adams Rubble: Pema wants me to go on. Yes, James?
    James Mai: like intense red pressure
    Rajah Yalin: wait... Pema? or is it just the spirit of Pema?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: One of them Rajah

    Starseed then departs

    Starseed Xue: gotta go, unfortunately
    Starseed Xue: namaste
    James Mai: You have to let it all go Neo, fear, doubt and disbelief...free your mind
    Adams Rubble: OK, bye Starseed
    Rajah Yalin: take care
    Rajah Yalin: Namaste
    Pia Iger: bye.
    James Mai: namaste
    Adams Rubble: Yes, exactly, James
    James Mai: I am the Archetect. I created the Matrix. I've been waiting for you.
    Adams Rubble: ???
    Rajah Yalin: lol
    Rajah Yalin: movie quotes

    Then Doug is gone

    doug Sosa: bye. apologies.
    Adams Rubble: bye Doug
    Rajah Yalin: take care Doug
    Pia Iger: why James quote that movie line?
    James Mai: Do not try and bend the spoon, that's impossible. Only try to realise the Truth:
    James Mai: What Truth? There is no spoon. There is no spoon? Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends it is only yourself.
    stevenaia Michinaga: you have a script ? James
    James Mai: i dont know
    stevenaia Michinaga: Can I ask you Adams.. you were one with little understanding of Being, has that changed now?
    Adams Rubble: It is changing Steve :)

    Then a strange interlude

    Adams Rubble: Hello Silvia
    Adams Rubble: Hello Geric
    Pia Iger: hope it not sound intrusive, I do sense Adams is much more relaxed than a wk ago.
    Geric Darkstone: very laggy
    Adams Rubble: Thank you Pia, for noticing
    Pia Iger: so there must be some changes happened.
    Silvia Numanox: yes we go then geric
    Geric Darkstone: hello
    Adams Rubble: Geric...I don't see you yet
    Adams Rubble: Hello Geric
    Pia Iger: I can't see any Geric.
    Rajah Yalin: behind Adams to her right
    Pia Iger: nada.
    Adams Rubble: Geric and Silvia, you are welcome to join us if you like
    Geric Darkstone: thx
    Adams Rubble: lag is fierce today
    Adams Rubble: Geric, is this your first time here?
    Pia Iger: he is gone
    Adams Rubble: Yes, he is..thank you Pia

    Pia brings us back to topic

    Pia Iger: I have not found what Storm and you said very strange, anyway.
    Adams Rubble: I was surprised my my experience
    Pia Iger: quite natural, maybe instead.
    Adams Rubble: Pema wants me to go the rest of the way
    stevenaia Michinaga: but considering how focused you were, with your blog and how open you are Adams, it is not unexpected
    stevenaia Michinaga: at least to me
    Adams Rubble: Thank you very much, Steve
    Adams Rubble: For me, I had to step back from the sessions a bit this week
    Adams Rubble: I was comparing myself to others who seemd to be "getting it"
    Adams Rubble: So it helped to just be off on my own a bit
    Adams Rubble: It also was a good exercise just reading the logs
    Adams Rubble: i saw places where I might have interrupted the flow of the conversation
    stevenaia Michinaga: and I could say the same for Pia, since I see you two most consistantly
    Pia Iger: oh, I got compliments, too. thanks, Steve!
    Adams Rubble: and Fael :)
    James Mai: afk

    Steve goes next

    stevenaia Michinaga: well I must go, a pool and friends in RL call, good to be back
    James Mai: afk
    Pia Iger: bye, Steve.
    Adams Rubble: Great to see you Steve, take care :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: great to see you all again
    Pia Iger: Adams, I agree, as to be offline for a while and connect with ourselves.
    Adams Rubble: It actually was hard to do :)
    Pia Iger: why?
    Adams Rubble: When the time came around, I just felt like coming into SL and coming to the session :)
    Adams Rubble: There should be a warning label
    Adams Rubble: Maybe it is habit forming :)
    Adams Rubble: Be careful. This may become a habit
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Pia Iger: hehe.
    James Mai: Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet, you are a plague - and we....are the cure...
    Adams Rubble: I missed everybody

    Neela arrived

    Adams Rubble: Hello Neela
    Rajah Yalin: hi Neela
    James Mai: hi neela
    Pia Iger: why James keep giving quotes?
    Neela Blaisdale: Hello all, just got back from RL, how is everyone?
    Pia Iger: Hi, Neela.
    Adams Rubble: We are fine...it is good to see you Neela
    James Mai: i dont know what to say
    Pia Iger: I feel better to exchange our personal experiene, instead of giving quotes.
    Rajah Yalin: do you feel like you have to say anything, James?
    Neela Blaisdale: You too Adams. Hello James don't think we've met before. Sorry if I interupted the discussion
    James Mai: its the end of the world and i feel fine

    Meesha comes next; I am having trouble remembering who is here and who is not

    Pia Iger: Is it the chatbot??
    Rajah Yalin: hi Meesha
    Adams Rubble: James, you are very welcome here, but please try to go with the flow of the conversation
    Adams Rubble: Hello Meesha
    Meesha Cuttita: hi everyone
    Pia Iger: Hi, Meesha.
    Neela Blaisdale: Hello Meesha
    Meesha Cuttita: :)
    Adams Rubble: Meesha, I don't think we have met, have you been here before?
    Meesha Cuttita: yes, but seems there's a different crowd today
    Meesha Cuttita: I only remember Rajah
    Rajah Yalin: :)
    Pia Iger: I read about you on blog, Meesha
    Adams Rubble: Oh , yes, there are always a different group of people from sesion to session
    Adams Rubble: It makes it interesting
    Meesha Cuttita: nice
    Rajah Yalin: diverse crowd that comes
    Adams Rubble: I lost the thread, ws there one?
    Rajah Yalin: hi Pema
    Meesha Cuttita: i didn't realise so many people practiced this

    Then Pema arrives and we discuss the session late Friday night and the Saturday morning session

    Adams Rubble: Hello Pema :)
    Pema Pera: hi everybody!
    Meesha Cuttita: hi Pema
    James Mai: hi pema
    Pema Pera: wow, what a large group, more than an hour after the session started!
    Pia Iger: hi Pema
    Rajah Yalin nods.
    Neela Blaisdale: Hello Pema, good to see you
    Pia Iger need to return RL, but also want to listen more. What a dilemma.
    Adams Rubble: Sessions seem to be going long today, Pema :)
    Pema Pera: yes, did you tell them?
    Rajah Yalin: that is a dillema Pia
    Pema Pera: about our 4 hours plus session this morning?
    Neela Blaisdale: Oh my
    Adams Rubble: I told them that you anted me to go on
    Pema Pera: :)
    Pema Pera: anted -- I like that, upping the ante !
    Adams Rubble: haha
    Adams Rubble: wanted
    Rajah Yalin: me and Gaya saw you parked here late last night, thought you were afk Pema
    Pema Pera: we anted for hours!
    Adams Rubble: yes, we did
    Pema Pera: yes, I was afk
    Rajah Yalin: thought it might be late in the USA and you fell asleep hehe
    Pema Pera: haha, no, RL interfered
    Pema Pera: it was a strange session, three avatars who had to leave for RL, but all three wanted to keep listening to catch the chat log
    Pema Pera: very unusual
    Pia Iger: I read the log.
    Pema Pera: nice poems by Adelene
    Pia Iger: yes. she is very impressive. I am so glad we keep having new ppl come.
    Adams Rubble thought there seemed to be many passing through today
    Pema Pera: yes, Pia, for sure
    Pema Pera: actually Threedee is impressive too
    Pema Pera: her friend
    Pia Iger: yes.
    Pema Pera: who here has met Threedee?
    Adams Rubble: yes, both
    Adams Rubble: just read the log
    Pia Iger: they two are not passthrough.
    Neela Blaisdale: No haven't met either
    Pema Pera: they are here to stay, I guess :)
    Pema Pera: Meesha, I'm really glad that you keep coming back as well
    Meesha Cuttita: :)
    Pia Iger: oh, Pema, i just told Adams, that I sense Adams are much different from last wk., much more relaxed.
    Pema Pera: wow, Pia, that is wonderful!!!
    Pia Iger: *is
    Pema Pera: perhaps just tired from fighting :-)
    Neela Blaisdale: :)
    Pema Pera: for four hours of anting
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Pema Pera: ranting from my side ?
    Pia Iger: no, not just tired.
    Adams Rubble: Yes, I am afraid a little of that :)
    Pema Pera: oh, good!
    Meesha Cuttita: It's strange, I never look at what time it is, but when I come by there always seems to be a meeting going on
    Pema Pera: the nice thing is, we had a meeting by the beach
    Pema Pera: in Adams house
    Meesha Cuttita: I must admit I come by more by chance that plan
    Pema Pera: outside near the camp fire
    Adams Rubble: Meesha, that is how I started :)
    Neela Blaisdale: I didn't realize that all the meetings werren't here
    Pema Pera: oh they are
    Pema Pera: we were here for an hour, Neela
    Pema Pera: then we had a spontaneous party at Adams'
    Meesha Cuttita: Really, Adams? Interesting
    Pema Pera: to talk with Wol, a new guardian
    Neela Blaisdale: Sounds great, love the beach
    Pema Pera: Meesha, would you be interested to join our guardian group?
    Pema Pera: all the others here that you see are "guardians"
    Meesha Cuttita: what would I have to do?
    Pema Pera: nothing :)
    Pema Pera: hehe
    Pema Pera: only perks no duties
    Meesha Cuttita: so what's the point?
    Pema Pera: the point is that you become part of an email group
    Pema Pera: and we also have weekly meetings
    Meesha Cuttita: oh ok
    Meesha Cuttita: i see
    Pema Pera: and only if you like, you can be the main guardian for some meetings
    Pema Pera: the main role being to guarantee that someone is always here for each time slot
    Pema Pera: 7x4 slots a week
    Meesha Cuttita: oh i can't really promise exactly when I'll be here
    Pema Pera: so we need 28 guardians for weekly slots
    Meesha Cuttita: my work schedule is very flexible
    Meesha Cuttita: i never quite know ahead
    Pema Pera: plus other guardians who are willing to jump in
    Pema Pera: when a standard guardian can't come
    Pema Pera: 2/3 of the guardians have a weekly slot
    Pema Pera: 1/3 doesn't
    Pema Pera: so you don't have to -- no duties :)
    Pema Pera: so that's fine
    Meesha Cuttita: ok
    Pema Pera: and the greatest perk I haven't mentioned yet . . . .
    Meesha Cuttita: yes?
    Pema Pera: you can get a piece of land on our territory
    Meesha Cuttita: lol
    Pema Pera: shall we move over briefly to someone's place? How about yours, Pia?
    Adams Rubble: and one of these great tags over your name :)
    Pema Pera: like "Go Player" as in go go play as being!!!
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Pema Pera: (wonder whether people know about the game of go . . . .)
    Meesha Cuttita: what is it?
    Meesha Cuttita: go player?
    Adams Rubble: only that it exists and you play it :)
    Pema Pera: chinese board game
    Meesha Cuttita: ooh
    Pema Pera: go in Japanese
    Adams Rubble: and it is in some paintings
    Pema Pera: weichi in Chinese
    Pema Pera: yes
    Pema Pera: wonderful game

    We all then went to Neela's House and then visited Solobill's and then Fael's. Then we went to mine where we talked for another hour and a half. Personally, I rather enjoy seeing what other guardians have done with their plot
