    The Guardian for this meeting was Gaya Ethaniel. The comments are by Gaya Ethaniel.

    I found Moon sitting at Playgoda when arrived but seemed to be afk.

    Gaya Ethaniel: Morning Moon :)
    Moon Fargis: eep.. morning gaya:))
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Moon Fargis: aww cute av :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks, I'm taller than you now :P Having tea?
    Moon Fargis: *giggles* ok ^^

    Moon changes his AV which is bigger than me.

    Gaya Ethaniel: rofl
    Gaya Ethaniel: That's not fair!
    Moon Fargis: it is :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: How are things? Been ages since we met at PaB last.
    Moon Fargis: yes :) ah so far all is well, beng in the middle of my practical exam now... which I took 2 weeks vacation for.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Glad to hear it!
    Gaya Ethaniel: When is your last exam?
    Moon Fargis: I’m in the middle of it.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah yes
    Moon Fargis: after the written exam we got the practical exam, where we have to design and produce different things
    Moon Fargis: in this case some signs and some flyers
    Gaya Ethaniel: I bet you can't wait to get all finished.
    Moon Fargis: yep :)
    Moon Fargis: but I have time.
    Moon Fargis: this week is also my birthday so i will enjoy my vacation :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: What are the themes for the design? You choose or it is given?
    Gaya Ethaniel checks Facebook ...
    Moon Fargis: it’s given :)
    Moon Fargis: ahh some green energy company wants some signs and some flyers also and I have to design this
    Gaya Ethaniel: Indeed your birthday is this week!
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah, sounds interesting.
    Moon Fargis: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Any plan for the birthday?
    Moon Fargis: nope
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ok :)
    Gaya Ethaniel is sure something will be 'cooked up'.
    Moon Fargis: hmm Facebook… I remember I should open this also sometimes
    Gaya Ethaniel laughs!
    Gaya Ethaniel: They are deleting accounts with SL names btw.
    Moon Fargis: eh?
    Gaya Ethaniel: Guess I will lose some of my SL friends on that.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yep apparently no warning, they are deleting them, saying FB is based on FL identity.
    Gaya Ethaniel: brb some more tea ...
    Gaya Ethaniel: back
    Moon Fargis: ^^

    I asked if Moon saw Pema’s email about APA during 9 seconds for next 100 days.

    Gaya Ethaniel: Not sure if you saw Pema's recent email re: appreciation.
    Moon Fargis: yes but had no real time to read it so far
    Gaya Ethaniel: How do you include appreciation in your practice Moon?
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yeah I can imagine.
    Moon Fargis: I appreciate that things are like they are
    Gaya Ethaniel: Can you explain what you mean by 'appreciate' here a bit more please?
    Gaya Ethaniel: In practice, how do you do it?
    Moon Fargis: ah very simple, just being thankful :)
    Gaya Ethaniel ponders ...
    Moon Fargis: ok try this pillow
    Gaya Ethaniel: ok :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Moon Fargis: normal pillow for you yes?
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yes perfect size and pose :)
    Gaya Ethaniel laughs!


    Gaya Ethaniel: Love it :)
    Moon Fargis: and now, same pillow for you? :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Not quite.
    Moon Fargis: back to old state, still same pillow, you might appreciate that you’re sitting right :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yes, the pillow is the same except ... what's the word ...
    Moon Fargis: the pillow didn’t changed, just a point of view
    Gaya Ethaniel listens.
    Moon Fargis: and I appreciate that things in my life went like this and still going, upside down and normal
    Moon Fargis: cus it makes no difference just another point of view
    Gaya Ethaniel still thinks ...
    Gaya Ethaniel: Somehow I think changing POV isn't quite enough for all situations.
    Gaya Ethaniel: So to appreciate, you look at things from different angle when you meditate.
    Moon Fargis: yep

    Now the cushion is being rotated continuously back and forth.

    Gaya Ethaniel: ok [bit dizzy]
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Moon Fargis: ;)
    Gaya Ethaniel: ok quite dizzy now. :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: That's interesting. I have done appreciation by being inclusive during mediation.
    Moon Fargis: *smiles* just be thankful for your life ^^
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Changing POV in meditation sounds like too much 'thinking' in a way ... am I making sense?
    Moon Fargis: hmm let’s say hmm maybe changing point of view is a bit wrong… starting to see all points of views without thinking might be the better one
    Moon Fargis: realizing
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ...
    Gaya Ethaniel: Think I understand what you mean a bit more ...
    Moon Fargis: realize how much could happen while you sitting on that pillow and appreciate that it is like it is now :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: I was just thinking back about the pillow. :)

    Moon’s ‘radio’, which turns out to be pretty nice to listen to.

    Moon Fargis: btw I actually hosting a little shoutcast server
    Gaya Ethaniel: Shoutcast server?
    Moon Fargis: yes internet radio
    Gaya Ethaniel: oh, how do I listen to it?
    Moon Fargis: http://s10.pop-stream.de:10570/listen.pls
    Moon Fargis: try this link
    Moon Fargis: if it’s not open with the used program, like winamp or mediaplayer you have to open it there
    Gaya Ethaniel: Doesn't work with Mediaplayer :(
    Moon Fargis: try http://s10.pop-stream.de:10570 with media player

    Finally I hear something!

    Gaya Ethaniel: oooooommmmmm
