    Wol Euler recovered this session from the autologging database. Dakini appears to have been GoC.

    Dakini Rhode: hi Eos

    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Dakini

    Dakini Rhode: please pardon my lateness

    Eos Amaterasu: That's fine! NP... I was feeling kind of tired, but thought I'd sit in for a while

    Eos Amaterasu: How are you doing?

    Dakini Rhode: very well! Today I retired from my former career and shared a delicious dinner with a good friend

    Eos Amaterasu: Oh - congratulations!

    Dakini Rhode: just as I was saying I want to do something of importance with the rest of my life, a perfect rainbow appeared over his head

    Eos Amaterasu: The elements conspire with you

    Dakini Rhode: smiling

    Eos Amaterasu: Are you shifting careers/work/play, or retiring in a more general sense?




    Dakini Rhode: well i did just retire, and I'm sure a shift is happening, but unsure of the direction as of now

    Eos Amaterasu: state of suspension

    Dakini Rhode: haha a bardo

    Eos Amaterasu: we're in it right now

    Dakini Rhode: useful to recognize it, i think

    Eos Amaterasu sees Dakini emanating some purple objects

    Dakini Rhode: o i was "looking" at the picture frame embedded in the pavilion ceiling

    Dakini Rhode: anyway, how are things with you?

    Eos Amaterasu: O

    Eos Amaterasu: I'm totally lost in camera viewpoints... :-)

    Eos Amaterasu: another bardo :-)

    Dakini Rhode: :-)

    Eos Amaterasu: I was out of my body :-)

    Eos Amaterasu: Would you say the 9secs is a little bardo?

    Dakini Rhode: o that happens once you start camming around

    Dakini Rhode: if i understand the word correctly, yes! the little bit between one 15 minute chat and the next one

    Eos Amaterasu: yes.... between one pre-occupation and the next

    Dakini Rhode: but hmmm if you don't actually pause but try to keep in mind what you wanted to say before, maybe it's not a bardo

    Dakini Rhode: haha

    Eos Amaterasu: or, if you're int the little bardo, and things are coming out of that, they can stay coming out of the bardo as they come out, so to speak

    Dakini Rhode: so even when things are coming and going it's still a little bardo

    Eos Amaterasu: Actually things never really leave the big bardo anyway

    Dakini Rhode: what is the big bardo?

    Eos Amaterasu: Being with a big B :-)

    Eos Amaterasu: there's the bardo of before you were born

    Eos Amaterasu: and after you die

    Eos Amaterasu: and you haven't really left that even now




    Eos Amaterasu: I was thinking about "dakini", "sky dancer" - could also be "bardo dancer" or "Being dancer"

    Dakini Rhode: wondering if we don't really leave that bardo, what would it be "between"?

    Eos Amaterasu: I think we experience it through "between-ness", like a 9-sec gap between aactivities, but actually it's pervasive

    Eos Amaterasu: and activity comes from that, and doesn't really leave it

    Eos Amaterasu: and isn't even separate from it

    Eos Amaterasu: bardo as cornucopia :-)

    Eos Amaterasu: I think that's also dakini aspect: fertile chaos, playfulness, also scary messaging

    Dakini Rhode: :-) what i'm getting is that the experience of a bardo is a matter of where we place our attention

    Eos Amaterasu: Yeah, we tend to place our attention on seemingly solid things

    Dakini Rhode: interesting to look at it from that perspective

    Dakini Rhode: amused by the scary messaging bit, but uncertain what it means

    Eos Amaterasu: dakinis have fangs :-)

    Eos Amaterasu: and sharp implements

    Dakini Rhode: o that might seem scary

    Eos Amaterasu: I think the idea being that they keep you in reality when you try to avoid that

    Eos Amaterasu: the phenomenal world is communicating with you

    Dakini Rhode: after i chose the name dakini for my avatar i realized i didn't know nearly enough about the topic

    Dakini Rhode: good thing though about the phenomenal world, and rainbows, and dakinis fangs

    Eos Amaterasu: yes, who's zoomin' who? :-)

    Eos Amaterasu: I have done study/practice of Vajrayogini, seeing myself as her

    Eos Amaterasu: or is it her seeing me?

    Dakini Rhode: just when you think you're separate... where is the separation?

    Eos Amaterasu: that's the nice thing about SL, we can do such things as well...




    Eos Amaterasu: yes, playing with that

    Eos Amaterasu: Dakini, I must leave, enjoy your tiny and big bardos, retirement and re-engagement, whatver that may be

    Dakini Rhode: thank you Eos, enjoy your evening and be well

    Eos Amaterasu: Caio!

    Dakini Rhode: nite :-)
