    The Guardian for this meeting was Adams Rubble. The comments are by Adams Rubble.

    I sat alone for a few minutes until Qt arrived,followed by Adelene and SophiaSharon

    Qt Core: hi
    Adams Rubble: Hi Qt :)
    Adams Rubble: Sorry I had stepped away :)
    Adams Rubble: How are you?
    Qt Core: fine, you ?
    Adams Rubble: I am very good, thanks
    Adams Rubble: It is a bright sunny day here
    Adams Rubble: Hello Ade :)
    Adams Rubble: Hello DSophia :)
    Adelene Dawner: hi all :)
    Adams Rubble: Sophia
    Qt Core: a little cloudy here (but it was expected, there are a lot of traditional sayings that tells that if the olive sunday is sunny easter will be rainy/cloudy)
    Qt Core: hi adele, Sophia
    Adams Rubble: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: It is sunny here :)
    Adelene Dawner doesn't know what it's like out, here... guess I could check weather.com if I wanted to know. *chuckle*
    Adams Rubble: Well, we had quite a couple of sessions yesterday :)
    Adams Rubble: hehe Ade
    Adams Rubble: It is like that for me when I am at work
    Qt Core: how many thousand further away than the nearest window is that server ? ;-)
    Adelene Dawner: hehehe
    Qt Core: miles
    Adams Rubble: At work there are no windows :)
    Qt Core: i have some but not in fromt of me (and i like it that way)
    Adelene Dawner: I have a window, but I keep a blackout curtain over it... easier to just ping the server :)
    Adams Rubble: Has anyone been doing the Being Seeing exercise?
    Qt Core: i may not be a vampire but i don't like very much direct sunlight
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I haven't heard that tradtional saying before Qt...
    Adams Rubble: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: no what is that Adams?? the wiki is down right now btw
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh!! nvm
    Adams Rubble: nvm?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: im slow (hung over from preparations for dinner today)
    Adelene Dawner: nvm=nevermind :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Qt Core: whell, literally it say "water on olives sun on the buttock" (the buttoks refer to the peeled boiled eggs
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i got you, too quick to type
    Qt Core: traditionally eaten on easter
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh really Qt? interesting :p
    Qt Core: sometimes it is inverted but the main ideas is always the same olive sunday and easter will have opposite weather
    Adams Rubble: We have more March winds today :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: to answer your question Adams, I am didn't think of it I'm so new, the 'seeing being' part is what I've concentrated on, but isn't that what we all have done, in a way..... so it is exciting stuff to me to think of it the other way around!
    Neela joined us
    Adams Rubble: Hello Neela :)
    Adams Rubble: Nice to see you :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: typos and bad grammer sorries
    Neela Blaisdale: Hello everyone
    Adams Rubble: Great Sophia. Could you say more about the other way around?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: only that it will have to be a delinated, purposeful exercise, i think i need the stucture
    Adams Rubble: whoops. missed the stop
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i didn't hear the ding either time
    Adams Rubble: yes, we do need that often
    Adams Rubble: Something interesting happened to me yesterday
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh?
    Then Pema rezzed in
    Neela Blaisdale: Hi Pema:)
    Adams Rubble: When Pema first suggested the exercise I did not see it as helping me
    Qt Core: hi Pema
    Adams Rubble: Hello Pema..We were just talking about you :)
    Pema Pera: Hi Neela, Sophia, Adelene, Adams, Qt!
    Adelene Dawner: Hi Pema :)
    Pema Pera getting curiouser
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Hi Pema, hi Neela if I didn't say :)
    Adams Rubble: Then Pila suggested the Ancestor Seeing
    Adams Rubble: I immediately thought "Just what I need" since I was having issues with stuff an ancestor had passed on
    Adams Rubble: But an interesting thing happened
    Adams Rubble: as the day went on, looking at myself through eyes of ancestors
    Adams Rubble: they began to tell this voice in me to hush
    Adams Rubble: they did it for me
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Adelene Dawner: neat :D
    SophiaSharon Larnia: that is so amazing Adams
    Pema Pera: that's so great, Adams!
    Adams Rubble: When we try things we never know what to expect :)
    Pema Pera: exactly!!!
    Qt Core: end even when we are trying nothing reality has this bad habits to hit us ;-)
    Pema Pera: we all together have to learn to trust the process/spirit/momentum of Play as Being, what IT wants to tell us, through us
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes that reminds me of what I thought of last night, it is a matter of trusting
    SophiaSharon Larnia: sometimes that is extremely difficult to do
    Adams Rubble: I had a similar thouught Sophia only of trusting love
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes
    SophiaSharon Larnia: my walls feel like cement and any breach in it feels like a meltdown...I spin... trust in being is the only thing left to do
    SophiaSharon Larnia: well, maybe you know what i mean
    Adams Rubble: it seems formidible at times
    Adams Rubble: but they break down bit by bit
    Adams Rubble: doesn;t all have to happen at once
    Adams Rubble: lots of time
    Pema Pera: trust doesn't mean blind faith -- it means a willingness to try something new, even though we don't know how it works and what can happen -- we try, with friends we also trust, in a trustworthy environment.
    Adelene Dawner: I found an interesting... quote? saying? String of words, anyway... yesterday, that seems interesting here... "The best decision I ever made was letting you love me."
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Adams Rubble: friends here have been so important in helping me see more
    SophiaSharon Larnia: trust to me is surrender, in the sense i feel it, having little to do with blind faith
    Adams Rubble: sometimes I feel almost "touched"
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes :) me too
    Adams Rubble: a healing touch
    SophiaSharon Larnia: or poked, hard sometimes
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble: yes that too
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yup
    Qt Core: (thinking about the big manga stykle 5tons hammers)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hehehe
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes some things have been like a big gong over my head...that i felt all throught to my cells
    Qt Core: juat likw this ancestor things
    Qt Core: while you were talking about it i realized i never have a feeling of it from my house... and it is a very old one and it was always owned by my family (used or not)
    A new avatar came but did not give permission to use his name
    Adams Rubble: Hello New Avatar
    Qt Core: hi New Avatar
    Adams Rubble: I had done a bit of geneological work so it is at my fingertips so to speak
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Hi New Avatar
    Neela Blaisdale: Hello New Avatar
    Adams Rubble: come oin us if you like New Avatar
    New Avatar: thanks
    Adams Rubble: Hello Scath :)
    Qt Core: hi Scath
    Pema Pera: Hi New Avatarand Scath!
    Adams Rubble: Have you been here before Anachie?
    Neela Blaisdale: Hi Scath
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Hi Scath
    New Avatar: smiles, No and I'm not entirely sure where I am
    Adams Rubble: I will give you a notecard :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello all:)
    New Avatar: thanks Adama
    Adams Rubble: We record our conversations. Do you have any objections to that?
    Pema Pera: Sophia talked about her cement walls . . . there are two ways of working with cement walls -- chipping away at them, or gently allowing Being see through them, and it feels totally different.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh?
    Pema Pera: we can let Being see from the inside, so to speak
    Neela Blaisdale: Chipping can feel like butting one's head into a wall...
    Pema Pera: yes
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes it does
    Neela Blaisdale: but I think is usually the first instinct, altjough nt sure why...
    Pema Pera: it is so hard to imagine that we can let ourselves be seen . . . .
    Adams Rubble wants to say we are tyoauht to use our heads
    Adams Rubble: taught
    ..and then our title for today
    Pema Pera: by Being, by ancestors, by God, and by golly by ourselves!
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Fefonz was next
    Adams Rubble: Hello Fefonz :)
    Pema Pera: hi Fefonz!
    Qt Core: hi fefonz
    Neela Blaisdale: Hi Fonz
    Fefonz Quan: hi all :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Hi Fefonz
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Fefonz
    Pema Pera: Hi Fefonz!
    Adams Rubble: Hello Steve :)
    Pema Pera: and hi Steve!
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Steve
    SophiaSharon Larnia: HI Steve
    Qt Core: (thinking about those walls more like the firewall we use on our pc... they let something in only if it was "invited" from the inside)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes that is it
    Qt Core: but that means that we can also send something out.. like probes ?
    Adams Rubble: yes like Pema's story :)
    Pema Pera: or bypass :)
    Steve arrived
    Neela Blaisdale: Hi Steve
    stevenaia Michinaga: Hi
    SophiaSharon Larnia: brb food in oven
    easter morning_002a.jpg
    stevenaia Michinaga: did spring just arrive or was the grass there all morning?
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Pema Pera: spring sprung
    Scathach Rhiadra: just arrived
    Pema Pera: all of a sudden
    Neela Blaisdale: :)
    Adams Rubble: I felt inspired to use Moon's flowers :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: as it usually does
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :) someone is wearing Moon's garden I love it :)
    Pema Pera: "wearing a garden as a garland"
    SophiaSharon Larnia: remined me of wearing the world lightly, although there is little connection
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Qt Core: nowadays in "civilized" cities the spring is more visible from the elbows that sprung from cars windowsthan from flowers ;-)
    Pema Pera: it's a very nice connection, Sophia!
    Pema Pera: "wearing our garden lightly", that's lovely!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: haha
    Pema Pera: hehehe, Qt
    Qt Core: rl calling, have to go, bye all
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes Qt 'civilized', that is a whole other topic I could rant on about....
    Adams Rubble: by Qt :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Qt
    Neela Blaisdale: Bye Qt
    Pema Pera: bye Qt!
    Scathach Rhiadra: bye QT
    Adelene Dawner: cya Qt
    Qt Core: i used "ranting" quotes ;-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Pema Pera: would be nice to be able to use ranting quotes in RL, to show the track of your mind . . . .
    Adams Rubble: Hello Eos
    Pema Pera: Hi Eos!
    New Avatar: Hey Eos
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Hi Eos
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes Pema lol
    Pema Pera: <rant>this and that, arggh</rant>
    Then Eos came...
    Adams Rubble: Have you been here before Eos?
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes, I've taken part in one conversation so far
    Adams Rubble: great! nice to meet you :)
    Eos Amaterasu: :-)
    Neela Blaisdale: Hello Eos
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Neela
    Fefonz Quan: sometimes entering a sessino in the middle, and so many people are quiet, is a strange feeling
    Fefonz Quan: like 'did i interrupt something' :0
    Fefonz Quan: :)
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Isn't life like that?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes :)
    Pema Pera: hahaha, yes
    Anachie Easterwood smiles
    Fefonz Quan: like interrupting, or like quiet Eos ? :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Like finding yourself here, alive
    Adams Rubble: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I find is usually leads to the new person saying they will listen.... leading them to talk much more than they imagined
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Fefonz Quan: reminds me of a great comment i put yesterday on my scribe : ' it is so quiet, are we all thinking deeply?'
    Adams Rubble: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: so Eros, feel free to "listen"
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Eos Amaterasu: thnx :-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: Eos
    Pema Pera: that is one limitation of a chat log without time stamps -- you can't see if there was a three-minute pause . . . .
    Pema Pera: and some conversations then don't make sense any more
    Fefonz Quan: Frued would love that one steve
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
