    The Guardian for this meeting was Eos Amaterasu. The comments are by Eos Amaterasu.



    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Stevenaia
    Eos Amaterasu: I was playing around with the pool and cushions
    Eos Amaterasu: Now I am the lotus-born :-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: you can make this place smaller you know (and drier)
    Eos Amaterasu: Doesn't always seem to work
    Eos Amaterasu: Now we can bow to each other :-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: nice for small groups

    Eos Amaterasu: Is there an aspect of PaB we could explore?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I am open
    Eos Amaterasu: :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: That is a big exploration!
    stevenaia Michinaga: grin, true
    stevenaia Michinaga: amazed you can always be more open, yet so many have a difficult time gasping that
    Eos Amaterasu: they gasp at it :-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: even in this group
    Eos Amaterasu: it is hard to grasp.... a paradox
    Eos Amaterasu: How about in the next 90 secs we "touch" openness?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have some distractions, but it might be interesting, how do you propose we begin, methodolgy is also interesting
    Eos Amaterasu: maybe just use "touch the openness" as an instruction?




    stevenaia Michinaga: touch openness, inages of fog parting at a movement of a finger though it
    Eos Amaterasu: heh heh
    stevenaia Michinaga: must be vision of the misting lotus, almost like a dream
    Eos Amaterasu: nice image
    stevenaia Michinaga: how does it touch you?
    Eos Amaterasu: I was finding that openness doesn't need touching, but allowing the touching that does happen is to touch that openness
    stevenaia Michinaga: metaphors are such an sweet way to communicate
    Eos Amaterasu: the lotus is a nice one 
    Eos Amaterasu: misting also
    stevenaia Michinaga: those were literal of what is before us
    Eos Amaterasu: I was in Cape Breton for Canadian Thanksgiving, experiencing the "triple point" where water, mist, ice come together: freshness itself
    Eos Amaterasu: both open and tangible
    stevenaia Michinaga: we also celebrated canadian Thankgiving with our canadian friends down here
    Eos Amaterasu: cool :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: I'm now looking forward to doing American Thanksgiving as well
    stevenaia Michinaga: seems we tend to eat more
    stevenaia Michinaga: my wife has been to Truro
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes, drove through it on this trip
    stevenaia Michinaga: she went to school in canada
    Eos Amaterasu: We could at some point have an RL retreat there
    stevenaia Michinaga: seems they are becoming world wide events
    Eos Amaterasu: There's one spot, Windhorse farm - has 600 year old trees - would be ideal for group up to a dozen or so
    Eos Amaterasu: http://www.windhorsefarm.org/
    Eos Amaterasu: Actually, you will be at Princeton, is that right?
    stevenaia Michinaga: for a day, yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: are you coming
    stevenaia Michinaga: PRinceton has a wonderful energy
    stevenaia Michinaga: I live quite close
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes, look forward to seeing you in RL, and to doing the retreat there
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, I enjoyed my time there last year
    Eos Amaterasu: Always an adventure to meet an embodiment of someone you know :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: Seemingly
    stevenaia Michinaga: true, ful of interesting suprises
    Eos Amaterasu: Stevenaia, do you have a suggestion as to how to approach the next 90 secs?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I am not sure 2 minutes is enough time to think about what arises
    stevenaia Michinaga: much better to continue on openness
    Eos Amaterasu: we could do it for longer
    Eos Amaterasu: oh, no boundaries with the 90 secs?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I was speaking about the suggestion, not the action




    Eos Amaterasu: This was interesting, being close up with mist
    Eos Amaterasu: mist is somewhat where things dissolve from solid to gaseous
    Eos Amaterasu: or they go back and forth
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    Eos Amaterasu: like touch and go
    stevenaia Michinaga: a great vehicle to explain things
    Eos Amaterasu: Maybe we should have misty places in the village
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have a fountain on my little plot
    Eos Amaterasu: I've noticed that that's a theme in the village, fountains and variations
    Eos Amaterasu considers he may want to get a mist generator
    stevenaia Michinaga: I am in the process of takeing building lessons
    stevenaia Michinaga: misting may be something I can learn
    Eos Amaterasu: great!
    stevenaia Michinaga: feels like something wizards should do
    Eos Amaterasu: :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: definitely!
    Eos Amaterasu: Point to a cloud and make it rain!
    Eos Amaterasu: I will check out your site...
    Eos Amaterasu: I'm building kind of a forest clearing
    Eos Amaterasu: a clearing is an opening in thingness :-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: at this point they are hard to locate except by touch
    stevenaia Michinaga: I will look for your forest..clearing
    stevenaia Michinaga: as you can't have a forest clearing without a forest
    Eos Amaterasu: I'm next door to Paradise :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: It's tricky putting up a forest in such a small plot
    Eos Amaterasu: Need viewplanes for avatars, so need some space
    Eos Amaterasu: You architect in RL?
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: hence my reluctance to build here, too much like my day job
    Eos Amaterasu: do you include PaB type openness in what your build?
    stevenaia Michinaga: wonders what that might look like
    Eos Amaterasu: boundary plus openness?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I think I identify with PaB openess and that is why I am here



    Eos Amaterasu: here there is circular form, with openess in the middle
    stevenaia Michinaga: but spaces need definition, as your clearing requires a forest
    stevenaia Michinaga: not sure mental openess, as one aspect translate simply into spacial openess
    Eos Amaterasu: the bells on either side of the 90secs define a special space
    Eos Amaterasu: just like a particular instruction can outline openness and make it more visible
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, a speace in time
    Eos Amaterasu: the openness doesn't reallly need a boundary
    Eos Amaterasu: but a boundary helps make it visible
    Eos Amaterasu: that must be the play of it :-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: there are many aspects of space, as we are illuminating here
    stevenaia Michinaga: avoiding the word "see"
    stevenaia Michinaga: space is all play, in that regard
    Eos Amaterasu: play and highlights
    Eos Amaterasu: maybe mischievous too?
    stevenaia Michinaga: Play is certainly that
    stevenaia Michinaga: it is what makes my job so much fun... defining space for a living
    Eos Amaterasu: and then you see people living in that space?
    stevenaia Michinaga: living, playing
    Eos Amaterasu: Was that an inspiration for you for play as being?
    stevenaia Michinaga: not sure I understand the question
    stevenaia Michinaga: "That"?
    Eos Amaterasu: working with creating space for people, how did that lead to play as being, or was it already that?
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, I came here only to find what I knew, it was nice
    stevenaia Michinaga: and what I didn't know, sometimes
    stevenaia Michinaga: I think finding new definitions was of great interest to me
    Eos Amaterasu: new definitions around openness?
    stevenaia Michinaga: openness, PaB, Being, and much more
    Eos Amaterasu: Can you describe one such definition, explorable in the next 90 secs?
    Eos Amaterasu: (I will have to leave after that)
    stevenaia Michinaga: will try
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Taliesin
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Tellesin
    Taliesin Python: hello
    Eos Amaterasu: Have you been here before?
    Taliesin Python: no i haven't
    Eos Amaterasu: We discuss and practice the nature of things
    Eos Amaterasu: I'm giving you two notecards
    Eos Amaterasu: Every 15 minutes we have a 90 second pause - there's one coming right up
    stevenaia Michinaga: we meditate for 90 seconds every 15 minutes, feel free to join us



    stevenaia Michinaga: hmmm
    stevenaia Michinaga: I was too distracted to sit into a concerted result
    stevenaia Michinaga: but directed thought was helpful
    Eos Amaterasu: 90 seconds over everything :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: directed thought?
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, think about "this" or that
    stevenaia Michinaga: structurd 90 seconds
    stevenaia Michinaga: as opposed to see what arises
    Eos Amaterasu: "No one can describe That by saying 'it is this'." - Rangjung Dorje
    Eos Amaterasu: (a fav quote)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I tend to respond construtively and creatively to direction
    Eos Amaterasu: Ah, that sounds great
    stevenaia Michinaga: part of what I do , and enjoy
    Eos Amaterasu: This was a great conversation - good night, stevenaia!
    stevenaia Michinaga: night. looking forward to meeting you in RL
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes!
