    The Guardian for this meeting was Riddle Sideways. The comments are by Riddle Sideways.

    [Note: the bell sound and --BELL-- words were working, but the fountain was not dry icing nor was the "please pause for 90 sec..." chat things working today].

    BTW - I like the phrase "Dropping outside Gravity". 


    Riddle Sideways: good morning, Listener
    Riddle Sideways: It was such a nice evening in SL that I thought I would walk, jog, run over here from the new village square.
    Riddle Sideways: On the way I saw what I have always thought happens but could not prove.
    Riddle Sideways: "All your stuff goes away when you don't need it and comes back when you do..."
    Riddle Sideways: I was running past my plot.
    Riddle Sideways: Must have moved up on it sooooo faaast
    Riddle Sideways: that my stuff did not have time to get into place :)
    Riddle Sideways: This time I was able to watch all the stuff rez into place. Just like it had always been there waiting for me, instead of the other way round.
    Riddle Sideways: For hours now, I have been watching thoughts do the same thing.
    Riddle Sideways: Thoughts that I did not need (loaded word, but don't stop too long on the word "need" (it will hurt))
    Riddle Sideways: came popping back all night
    Riddle Sideways: good morning, Bleu
    Bleu Oleander: good morning Riddle
    Bleu Oleander: how are you?
    Riddle Sideways: I was just telling Listener Master about thoughts that come back seemingly out of nowhere
    Riddle Sideways: when given space, time, need
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Riddle Sideways: happens all the time, but seemed to watch it since last night
    Bleu Oleander: I think it happens more than we realize
    Bleu Oleander: once you start paying attention to it you notice it more
    Riddle Sideways: oh yes, paying attention is the part
    Riddle Sideways: last night a stray phrase "spirit guides" came into
    Riddle Sideways: please forgive me, but I had not paid attention to spirit guides for some time
    Riddle Sideways: we had been on auto-piot
    Riddle Sideways: pilot
    Bleu Oleander: happens
    Riddle Sideways: I know yesterday morning things were spilling alot, trying to get attention
    Riddle Sideways: but not til the evening did I pay attention
    Riddle Sideways: then all these guides started speaking
    Riddle Sideways: [hope am using goodly words]
    Bleu Oleander: that's where the 9 sec pauses come in handy!
    Riddle Sideways: exactly
    Bleu Oleander: I've been more consciously using them lately
    Bleu Oleander: but it takes a while to make it part of your day
    Riddle Sideways: they were firing off quicker then 15 min tho
    Riddle Sideways: and started noticing how many guides we have
    Riddle Sideways: many times thought about these SL guides
    Riddle Sideways: sometimes I think, "Bleu, is a real person..." when you are just my spirit guide :)
    Riddle Sideways: need to pay attention
    Riddle Sideways: of course it does not matter
    Riddle Sideways: you are going to guide me whatever I put as a meaning, justifaction, reasoning
    Riddle Sideways: just that you seem so real
    Bleu Oleander: real spirit reaching you via Bleu in SL
    Riddle Sideways: seems so easy to think along that line
    Riddle Sideways: good morning, Calv
    Bleu Oleander: morning Cal
    Calvino Rabeni: Good morning Bleu and Riddle
    Bleu Oleander: I have to go, but thank you Riddle for our conversation this morning :)
    Calvino Rabeni: What has the conversation been?
    Bleu Oleander: enjoy your day, c u Riddle and Cal
    Riddle Sideways: easy to think that the envisionment before us is a real Calvino come to guide us
    Calvino Rabeni: Bye Bleu
    Riddle Sideways: ok, sorry to scare you off
    Riddle Sideways: was rambling on about spirit guides
    Calvino Rabeni: So, that's good, what was the gist of it?
    Calvino Rabeni: How are your relationships?
    Calvino Rabeni: Or was it, do they exist? :)
    Riddle Sideways: 1. the number of guides we have in different parts of us
    Riddle Sideways: 2. that they carry on whether we paying attention or not
    Riddle Sideways: there are dream guides that visit nightly whether bidden or not
    Riddle Sideways: a safety guide that was spilling things yesterday to get me to slow down
    Calvino Rabeni: :)
    Riddle Sideways: an education guide that made me pick up that book of short stories last night
    Riddle Sideways: then I got to whether SL is yet another extension of
    Calvino Rabeni: I had that a few days ago - I dropped coffee more than one time :) Until I dropped it by not drinking it, and slowed down
    Calvino Rabeni: Listens
    Riddle Sideways: years ago read about needing to find your true spirit guide
    Riddle Sideways: sit on a mountain, fast for 20 days, take a special drug, chant
    Riddle Sideways: and a little teddy bear would link with me
    Riddle Sideways: well the teddy bear just joined the hundreds of other guides
    Riddle Sideways: isn't that "mother' voice in the back your head one of the guides too
    Riddle Sideways: [note: the fountain and log did not 90 sec pause, but the bell rang]
    Riddle Sideways: so, is PaB our guides
    Calvino Rabeni: Can you clarify your main concern about this?
    Riddle Sideways: no :)
    Riddle Sideways: but can try to work thru it
    Calvino Rabeni: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Well the more guides there seem to be, it seems there could be a loss of focus or clarity
    Riddle Sideways: am putting forward the hypothesis that Calvino is real
    Calvino Rabeni: And maybe some of them don't have the same status and importance
    Calvino Rabeni: Some might come from different "worlds"
    Riddle Sideways: at different times they have different use, need, status, importance
    Calvino Rabeni: Then discrimination might be an issue
    Riddle Sideways: the coffee spill guide seems to have no embodiment
    Calvino Rabeni: I'm agnostic about them insofar as philosophy goes
    Calvino Rabeni: But I favor their appearance
    Calvino Rabeni: whether it is invoked or unbidden
    Riddle Sideways: your attitude toward them is an entirely huge subject
    Riddle Sideways: that we discuss a lot here
    Calvino Rabeni: And I think they may need a little affirmation
    Calvino Rabeni: And they are on a spectrum of appearances, somewhat on the "personal" side
    Riddle Sideways: they seem to get very loud when not getting enough attention
    Calvino Rabeni: the impersonal side is where everything is said to be "energy"
    Calvino Rabeni: I ask my various friends to what degree they consider them "real"
    Calvino Rabeni: As contrasted with something like a psychological projection or motif
    Calvino Rabeni: but, it's not as important as talking to them
    Riddle Sideways: hmmm, you may be on to something
    Calvino Rabeni: or invoking them, praying to them, knowing when to stay out of their way, knowing when to make conditions welcoming to entice them to come closer, etc.
    Riddle Sideways: on the general level of G-d, Being, Gravity, Time, etc. they are energies
    Riddle Sideways: on the personal. "My special little friend..."
    Calvino Rabeni: or Qualities maybe, to use a less "physics" metaphor
    Calvino Rabeni: Not all are teddy bears
    Riddle Sideways: true
    Calvino Rabeni: some might be approached with caution
    Riddle Sideways: that money one, is very dangerous
    Calvino Rabeni: I was considering how this relates to the idea of "dropping" in PAB
    Riddle Sideways: yes, was thinking about an impersonal energy we have labeled gravity
    Riddle Sideways: we could 'drop' gravity in SL/PaB
    Calvino Rabeni: Gravity gives the important messages - it is gravity that informs when other things have been "dropped"
    Riddle Sideways: you can fly here
    Riddle Sideways: objects do not spill
    Calvino Rabeni: So it might be tricky - to have dropping outside gravity
    Riddle Sideways: true, dropping can or might not have anything to do with dropping
    Riddle Sideways: gravity
    Riddle Sideways: typos are funny
    Calvino Rabeni: The relationship is interesting - insofar as the "giving over" aspect of it
    Riddle Sideways: so many different attitudes you can take
    Calvino Rabeni: To release or let go may require another entity to take things over and carry them off - that is one of the things to be grateful to "gravity" for
    Calvino Rabeni: And many of the "guides" may be willing to provide that service
    Riddle Sideways: yet another guide that takes things away
    Riddle Sideways: you don't need that...
    Riddle Sideways: while another guide is giving you stuff
    Calvino Rabeni: Some give, some take away, and perhaps more importantly, some do safekeeping of valuables
    Riddle Sideways: a Calvino, that I never quite know what is going to say
    Calvino Rabeni: One of the signs of an intelligent entity - that its behavior is in some way unexpected and unforeseen - otherwise it could be a projection of some habit
    Calvino Rabeni: We like the entities because of the freshness they bring into the circle of self
    Calvino Rabeni: keeping things circulating
    Calvino Rabeni: Were it not for their generous services, things would get pretty stuffy "in here"
    Riddle Sideways: circualating enough so there is fresh air
    Calvino Rabeni: An organizing capability of the self, one might allow
    Riddle Sideways: inhale the fresh
    Calvino Rabeni: to achieve a middle way between being hermetically sealed, and outright posessed and invaded
    Riddle Sideways: exhale to curculate to others
    Calvino Rabeni: That's a nice metaphor, with breath as spirit
    Calvino Rabeni: Anyway, I GTG catch the shuttle to the office
    Riddle Sideways: and thanks for the fresh thoughts
    Calvino Rabeni: good talking to you - hope I meet again with you while I'm in this time zone
    Calvino Rabeni: Bye for now
