    Adams Dubrovna: Pema often talks about using Being as a resource
    Adams Dubrovna: When I was younger I used to feel I could use God as a resource
    Adams Dubrovna: I lost that feeling
    Adams Dubrovna: a long time ago
    Adams Dubrovna: but I am connnecting the two
    Adams Dubrovna: I wonder if you might have any experience along those lines
    sophia Placebo: resource of what ?
    Adams Dubrovna: hehe
    Adams Dubrovna: well I once thought thaat God could affect my life
    Adams Dubrovna: I don;t know what Pema means yet
    Adams Dubrovna: I believed I was guided by God
    Adams Dubrovna: I could relax and put myself in his hands
    Adams Dubrovna: Hello Wol :)
    sophia Placebo: hmm
    sophia Placebo: Hi Wol
    sophia Placebo: there was a number of instances when this happened
    sophia Placebo: the feeling was at its peak i mean
    Wol Euler: hello sophia, adams
    Adams Dubrovna: It is a good feeling when it happens
    sophia Placebo: usualy thats whats we do daily , our God is the -resource of every gift -
    sophia Placebo: but at certain momnets one is uncertain which path to follow
    Adams Dubrovna nods
    Adams Dubrovna: That, of course, is the tricky part :)
    sophia Placebo: some times it might be spritual path but at many times just a a life crross roads
    Adams Dubrovna: one of the tricky parts
    sophia Placebo: you might call it a trick
    sophia Placebo: but in most times i felt lost
    Adams Dubrovna: Looking back I seemed to feel it helped me look outward
    sophia Placebo: outwaord?
    Adams Dubrovna: from a less selfish point of view
    Adams Dubrovna: that God wanted something of me
    Adams Dubrovna: that I had a duty to consider others in the picture
    Adams Dubrovna: that could be worded better
    Adams Dubrovna: but I have been connecting it to love, to looking with the heart
    sophia Placebo: hmm yes the heart part
    sophia Placebo: thats whats matter
    sophia Placebo: God dont look to our shapes or clothes but whats within our hearts

    Tarmel Udimo: you know in the 'olden' days people use to get handfasted
    Tarmel Udimo: they would have a ceremony where a ribbon was tied around their hands
    Tarmel Udimo: and they would be together for a year and a day
    sophia Placebo: year !
    Adams Dubrovna: Oh my, now people try to keep them apart before the wedding
    Tarmel Udimo: then if after that they decided to stay together they would repeat the custom
    Adams Dubrovna: :)

    Story time

    sophia Placebo: wanna hear a story ?
    Wol Euler: sure
    Adams Dubrovna: I need to go meet Storm in a minute. Nice to see you all. Take care :)
    Adams Dubrovna: sorry to miss the stiry
    sophia Placebo: bye adams nice to meet you too
    sophia Placebo: On a frigid and snowy winter day Mullah Nasruddin was having a chat with some of his friends in the local coffee house. Mullah Nasruddin said that cold weather did not bother him, and in fact, he could stay, if necessary, all night without any heat.
    Tarmel Udimo: bye Adams
    Wol Euler: bye adams, take care
    sophia Placebo: We'll take you up on that, Mullah Nasruddin . they said. If you stand all night in the village square without warming yourself by any external means, each of us will treat you to a sumptuous meal. But if you fail to do so, you will treat us all to dinner. - All right it's a bet, Mullah Nasruddin said.
    sophia Placebo: That very night, Mullah Nasruddin stood in the village square till morning despite the bitter cold. In the morning, he ran triumphantly to his friends and told them that they should be ready to fulfill their promise. But as a matter of fact you lost the bet, Mullah Nasruddin , said one of them. At about midnight, just before I went to sleep, I saw a candle burning a window about three hundred yards away from where you were standing. That certainly means that you warmed yourself by it.
    sophia Placebo: That's ridiculous, Mullah Nasruddin argued. How can a candle behind a window warm a person three hundred yards away?
    sophia Placebo: All his protestations were to no avail, and it was decided that Mullah Nasruddin had lost the bet. Mullah Nasruddin accepted the verdict and invited all of them to a dinner that night at his home. They all arrived on time, laughing and joking, anticipating the delicious meal Mullah Nasruddin was going to serve them. But dinner was not ready. Mullah Nasruddin told them that it would be ready in a short time, and left the room to prepare the meal. A long time passed, and still no dinner was served.
    sophia Placebo: Finally, getting impatient and very hungry, they went into the kitchen to see if there was any food cooking at all. What they saw, they could not believe. Mullah Nasruddin was standing by a huge cauldron, suspended from the ceiling. There was a lighted candle under the cauldron.
    Adams Dubrovna: :)
    sophia Placebo: - Be patient my friends, Mullah Nasruddin told them. Dinner will be ready soon. You see it is cooking.
    sophia Placebo: - Are you out of your mind, Mullah Nasruddin? they shouted. How could you with such a tiny flame boil such a large pot? - Your ignorance of such matters amuses me, Mullah Nasruddin said. If the flame of a candle behind a window three hundred yards away can warm a person, surely the same flame will boil this pot which is only three inches away.
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: Nasruddin is a delight :)
    Tarmel Udimo: very nice story:)
    sophia Placebo: hehe he is
    Adams Dubrovna: yes
    Wol Euler: may I tell one too?
    Tarmel Udimo: nods
    sophia Placebo: what amaze me about him is that he is a real man ad did these things physcally

    Wol telling another story

    Wol Euler: Mullah Nasruddin was sitting one day playing chess with his friends in a cafe.
    sophia Placebo: sure wol
    Adams Dubrovna waves
    Wol Euler: As a funeral procession came by, he stood up and faced the street, removed his turban and bowed deeply.
    Wol Euler: then sat back down and resumed his game.
    Wol Euler: His friends were awed. "A magnificent gesture, truly worthy of a mullah!" they said.
    Wol Euler: "well, " he replied, "it's the least a man can do for his wife."
    sophia Placebo: hehe :))
    Tarmel Udimo: hehehe
    Tarmel Udimo: :))))
    sophia Placebo: what a mullah
    Wol Euler: yeah, a very wise and sensible man.
    Tarmel Udimo: well I hate to be a party pooper but back to RL for me
    Wol Euler: bye tarmel, have a good day.
    sophia Placebo: buy tarmel
    Tarmel Udimo: grins
    Tarmel Udimo: back to bed:)
    sophia Placebo: next time i'll bring poetry
    Wol Euler: what? ah, of course, it's saturday already for her
    Wol Euler: plase do!
    sophia Placebo: hehe
    Wol Euler: it would be great to have a regular literary PaB session.
    sophia Placebo: is tarmel in east ?
    Wol Euler: we could make it a theme, everyone presents a book
    Wol Euler: yes, she's in Ausralia
    sophia Placebo: that would be lovely thing
    sophia Placebo: or present a quoet
    Wol Euler: mmhmm, that would be good too
    Wol Euler: well, I too must get to bed.
