    That evening, Threedee was the guardian. He sent the chatlog to me (Pema). I put the log on the wiki, and I added a title. He provided one line of comment and a number of line breaks. Note that Tahuti’s report solves the mystery of the previous meeting: there were indeed two people, but no Play as Being guardians, it seems.

    Threedee Shepherd: Hello Tahuti
    Tahuti Thor: hi
    Threedee Shepherd: May I ask where in the physical world you are now?
    Tahuti Thor: east coast, america
    Tahuti Thor: you
    Threedee Shepherd: are you an early riser? I am in Colorad, and tend towards being a night person.
    Threedee Shepherd: Colorado
    Tahuti Thor: night person
    Threedee Shepherd: ahh
    Tahuti Thor: there were only 2 ppl here last time
    Tahuti Thor: me and someone else
    Threedee Shepherd: By last time you mean six hours ago
    Tahuti Thor: yes
    Threedee Shepherd: I usually come at that time, but was out for the evening.
    Tahuti Thor: k
    Threedee Shepherd: well, two are very different than one :) Was there something you want to bring up?
    Tahuti Thor: no
    Tahuti Thor: you?
    Threedee Shepherd: In the past few days I have spoken much with others about the distiction between fear and fear-of
    Tahuti Thor: hmm
    Tahuti Thor: whats the distinction
    Threedee Shepherd: fear-of relates to something that might happen. fear seems to be an unavoidable part of the primal fabric of being.
    Tahuti Thor: i c
    Threedee Shepherd: does that make any sense to you?
    Tahuti Thor: yes
    Tahuti Thor: few people in the world do claim they are fear-less
    Threedee Shepherd: true, and yet they typically link that fear to some-thing, which then becomes a possibly false focus.
    Threedee Shepherd: When I link a fear to some thing, I can make all sorts of efforts to avoid or overcome it, usually to no avail because I still retain a sense of fear, which I am coming to understand as one of the components, or essences of being that just IS.
    Tahuti Thor: so you saying that to claim u are fearless…..u still have to conceive there being a fear inside your being
    Threedee Shepherd: fear as a part of the whole fabric of being, I would propose

    Others arrive:

    Threedee Shepherd: hello Fael and Gaya
    Fael Illyar: Hi 3D, Tahuti :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Fael Illyar: I’m finding the balance on how much thinking is still acceptable.
    Tahuti Thor: hello Fael
    Fael Illyar: Thank you for yesterday, 3D :)
    Fael Illyar: Gaya as well :)
    Gaya Ethaniel sees the necklace on 3D
    Gaya Ethaniel: Pleasure Fael
    Threedee Shepherd: you are welcome.
    Threedee Shepherd: Yes, I live in a part of the USA where Native American cultures are strong and their jewelry is prevalent.
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Gaya Ethaniel wonders if 3D and Adelene are related :)
    Fael Illyar: Hi Wol :)
    Threedee Shepherd: No. However, we are very close to each other and strongly connected.

    Wol Euler: morning all!
    Threedee Shepherd: Hello Wol.
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Wol Euler is not here for long, sneaking time between meetings :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles at Wol ‘thank you’
    Threedee Shepherd: Adelene and I met in SL a while ago and grew towards each other. she also works with me on building projects in SL.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah

    Threedee Shepherd: , I am going to get a world timeclock so I know what time it is where others in the PaB group are :D
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah that’s a good idea 3D
    Gaya Ethaniel: Would it be hung somewhere for everyone to see?
    Threedee Shepherd: could be, if we agree we want to. Of course, some Avatars simply say they are here now and do not identify a time-ofRL-day
    Fael Illyar: :)
    Threedee Shepherd: Somehow I strongly merge RL and SL, and having a sense of the time-of-day that another is in adds to that integration
    Gaya Ethaniel: oh
    Tahuti Thor: hello Gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Tahuti
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ok 3D
    Wol Euler: hello Tahuti
    Gaya Ethaniel: I’m more like you so would like to have the clock if you are willing to share
    Threedee Shepherd: I will see if I can find one that works in SL, I know they exist on the web for normal download.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hm… I fade out here… too much techie stuff :P
    Threedee Shepherd: np
    Gaya Ethaniel: I have world clock on my computer… I guess it’s something similar to that
    Threedee Shepherd: yes
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah got it 3D
    Gaya Ethaniel: I don’t need one in SL in that case :)
    Threedee Shepherd: mmhmm

    Threedee Shepherd: This was a powerful day for some of us here now, as I experienced it.
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Wol Euler nods. I read the transcript.
    Threedee Shepherd: Such prolonged intensity is rare, and leads to much reflection
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hm… what you just said got my heart beating slightly faster 3D ‘[1:38] Threedee Shepherd: This was a powerful day for some of us here now, as I experienced it.’
    Threedee Shepherd: awakening, realization, what?
    Gaya Ethaniel tries to bring her heart beating like that again. One sec
    Fael Illyar: I’m not going to forget yesterday :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: What you said ‘clicked’ ‘resonated’ but on a deep level?
    Wol Euler: quite right.
    Threedee Shepherd: Tahuti, The other four of us were in many conversations with each other today, though never all at once. We shared powerful being.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Heart beat was heavier and went ‘thump’ like this for longer than usual
    Gaya Ethaniel: thum….p
    Gaya Ethaniel: like that
    Threedee Shepherd: Is that unusual Gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel: Let me think
    Threedee Shepherd: The way you describe the sound/rhythm, it sounds like a very definitive beat.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Each time it’s different… it can be thum…p when I’m feeling bad too. Just now I was feeling calm and went thum…p
    Gaya Ethaniel: yes that one beat I just heard very clearly for longer
    Gaya Ethaniel: like the end notes of a piano piece…. sounds lasting diminishing for longer
    Gaya Ethaniel: echoing in the ears
    Threedee Shepherd: I resonate with your sense of calm. Throughout the rest of the day one sense of calm or another was the pervasive observation in my 9-second times
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah
    Gaya Ethaniel: So you felt when I started to feel calm after you left me?
    Threedee Shepherd: I think you, I and Fael eventually shared a sense of calmness
    Gaya Ethaniel: I did… yes
    Gaya Ethaniel: Fael?
    Threedee Shepherd: Wol, did you have any such sense?
    Wol Euler: I’ve only had time to skim the log, but yes, that was my impression. You arrived at a position of calm and stability.
    Wol Euler: (plural “you”)
    Gaya Ethaniel: this log Wol?
    Wol Euler: mmhmm - or am I misunderstanding something?
    Gaya Ethaniel: Just checking… we shared many logs :P
    Wol Euler: in any case, that was my impression.
    Fael Illyar: I was feeling very calm for the 5 hours yesterday
    Gaya Ethaniel nods

    Threedee Shepherd: I have been trying to practice 9-second regularly and I find it brings all of PaB into the essence of my life now.
    Gaya Ethaniel: all of PaB?
    Threedee Shepherd: It seems to be a way of allowing me to regularly reflect and recollect on all of these conversations.
    Gaya Ethaniel: yes PaB did that to me too
    Gaya Ethaniel: Meditation alone couldn’t do it… 9 sec throughout the day expanded the meditative states between 15 minutes gaps
    Gaya Ethaniel: Eventually I was able to be aware most of the time during the day
    Threedee Shepherd nods
    Gaya Ethaniel: Before I was focusing what I am doing right at the moment - mindfulness I thought
    Gaya Ethaniel: Now it’s a bit more than that
    Gaya Ethaniel: I sense being more often not just being purposefully mindful
    Threedee Shepherd: yes
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles

    Threedee Shepherd: Tahuti, we switched away from the conversation you and I were having. Is there more you want to say?
    Tahuti Thor: no ….jus sittin here
    Threedee Shepherd: ok

    Gaya Ethaniel: Unfortunately I’m PaBed out already.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks for the conversation and good day
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Fael Illyar: See you later then, Gaya :)
    Wol Euler: ah, bye for now Gaya.
    Threedee Shepherd: Yes, we can leave, and being 3 AM here, I can go to bed with calmness
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Threedee Shepherd: Fael and Gaya, thank you for your trust, today.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Thank you also 3D and Wol
    Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks Tahuti for being here also
    Gaya Ethaniel: Good bye
    Wol Euler looks at the clock. Yes, I too will have to jump out soonishly. I’ll be back in the SL afternoon.
    Threedee Shepherd: same here, in the SL afternoon
    Threedee Shepherd: This seems a good moment to say _/!\_ :)
    Wol Euler smiles
