    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yes Moon?
    Vertigo Ethaniel: everyone has their token element :)
    Vertigo Ethaniel: mine is storms
    Vertigo Ethaniel: yours is the moon
     Moon Fargis: yes seems so :)
    Vertigo Ethaniel: whats yours, gaya?
    Gaya Ethaniel: hm... a good question Vertigo. I'm not sure. How did you find yours?
    Vertigo Ethaniel: i just had a connection to thunderstorms since i was a kid...
    Vertigo Ethaniel: maybe it was good memories
    Gaya Ethaniel: And Moon?
    Moon Fargis: same here... but also conneced with bad memories
    Gaya Ethaniel: To be honest... I haven't got a clue...
     Vertigo Ethaniel: i think you probably do, just that it isnt coming to mind :)
    Vertigo Ethaniel: theres no rush of course
    Gaya Ethaniel: Well... nature in general
    Gaya Ethaniel wrote a poem about Moon and won a prize at school
    Moon Fargis: yaay !
    Gaya Ethaniel: Everything in nature thou... nothing in particular
    Gaya Ethaniel laughs
    Vertigo Ethaniel: yes i think im very similar gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel: Care to say more?
    Vertigo Ethaniel: i feel close to trees in particular
    Vertigo Ethaniel: when im standing in a forest, i feel surrounded by old souls
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah...
    Vertigo Ethaniel: theres wisdom there that we may never know
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Gaya Ethaniel: I get that with certain tress... not all
    Moon Fargis: yes, i be at the opinion that threes are another large being where we could reborn to
    Gaya Ethaniel: Deeper connection with certain species of trees*
    Gaya Ethaniel: Perhaps yes Moon
    Vertigo Ethaniel: i would be happy to live for a thousand years as a great tree
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yew perhaps <smile>
    Moon Fargis: well i would miss my daily cup of tea as tree :)
    Gaya Ethaniel laughs
    Moon Fargis: but so...it seems the tree is also the best example to explain the buddhism theories so far
    Gaya Ethaniel listens
    Moon Fargis: hmm didnt i told my visualisation of the dharma in form as a tree?
    Gaya Ethaniel: nope
    Gaya Ethaniel: Mountain of stones only so far
    Moon Fargis: oh
    Moon Fargis: darn i really have to make a notecard i can copy and paste hehe ok ...lets imagine a short time.. we being.. all being are a leaf on a tree, the tree would be the placeholder for the whole universe
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Moon Fargis: from this sight of view, as a leaf on a tree you can explain mostly everything with it...karma,death,rebirth, enlightment
    Gaya Ethaniel sees Vertigo stepping out to meet the rain
    Vertigo Ethaniel: hehe
    Moon Fargis: ah i see
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Gaya Ethaniel listens
    Moon Fargis: hmm so you as a leaf on a tree... grows, depending on the karma you produce... good karma let you grow, bad karma let some of your leaf parts getting brown and die,
    Moon Fargis: as death comes the tree takes you back and transform your size into new enery to create another leaf, depending how much energy he can get from you (becasue your karma made you grow large or let most of you die) e will create a new leaf from it, a small one with less potential when you colleced manny bad karma or a large one with higher potential when you collected good karma.... this would describe the death and rebirth in buddhism,
    Moon Fargis: but then it happens a leaf get enlighted.. it starts to know that it is a leaf..and see the connections between the karma stuff and death and rebirth and that it is connected throught the tree witl all other leafs, so it starts with meditation and try to produce no karma.. this would lead that the leaf grows to a little branch of the tree wich will carry new leafs again...this would be the nirvana in buddhism

    I wondered how often i will type in that description by hand until i finally decide to create a notecard.

    Gaya Ethaniel: ah
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Moon Fargis: well..and so on :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Gaya Ethaniel thinks Moon's notecard idea is good
    Vertigo Ethaniel: im not really talking much because im trying to sort out some network issues on our home network
    Vertigo Ethaniel: so sorry :)
    Moon Fargis: just created one so i get this basic description saved at least :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: np Vertigo <smile>
