    2009.06.13 01:00 - Seperate Worlds & Groups


    Travieso Sella: I feel a lot of frustration and anger I guess in dealing with most people. I like to think of it as a positive force at its best. But it creates this strange barrier between that and other beliefs of mine.
    Travieso Sella: Of course I know there's a lot of people who feel a lot of the same things and have a hard time dealing with people. Sometimes it can ruin one's life. But the world seems indifferent because of its short-sightedness...
    Nymf Hathaway: Well if you consider humans are lazy... always on the lookout for a quick fix or short term happiness... people who think are rare.
    Scathach Rhiadra: We talk a lot about just letting things be, dropping judgment and appreciating everything (and everyone) as they are, but it is not so easy to actualise that.
    Nymf Hathaway: People often feel attacked personal as well.
    Scathach Rhiadra: Become defensive, it is natural to protect ourselves.
    Scathach Rhiadra: You mentioned groups earlier, do you find they can lose their original freshness, and become more about 'the group'?
    Travieso Sella: Well, that's one of my big complaints, especially about SL. People still tend to gravitate toward the herd or mob mentality over individuality. I think this is at an unhealthy level as well, to the extent that we try to stamp out anything different or mysterious.
    Scathach Rhiadra: Try to make people conform, make the group stronger.

    Adams the G-ds

    Eos Amaterasu: Is this kind of experience important for the world?
    Adams Rubble: Which kind of experience Eos?
    Eos Amaterasu: The kind of thing we do here and in the 1% tax, etc
    Adams Rubble: The best I can do is that it is important for me.
    Eos Amaterasu: I guess it's also important for me - I instantly gravitated here.
    Adams Rubble: That may be all that is important.

    2009.06.14 07:00 - Socrates Don't Listen to the Cambridge Dude

    Adams the G-ds the second instalment

    Adams Rubble: It is important to bounce out of our petty concerns :)
    Nymf Hathaway: I agree. See the bigger picture, if we are even able :)
    Adams Rubble: At least remind ourselves that there is a bigger picture. Maybe that is all that is necessary. That is a change in me. hehe
    Adams Rubble: I used to worry about trying to think it out...that there would be some kind of answer. Maybe for the scientist that IS important :)
    Nymf Hathaway: Well it tickles them to find the answers :)
    Adams Rubble: I can appreciate the quest :)

    2009.06.14 13:00 - A few friends talking

    Aloha to you and you and you

    Pila Mulligan: Hawaiian traditions are full of what we may call magic, also -- including the art of setting broken bones so that they heal completely in a few days. Most of these invovle some aspect of ha or breath. Part of it is that the healer breaths through the skin and flesh to the bone to cleanse it so it will heal.
    Pila Mulligan: I saw this in a dream one night actually. A Hawaiian healer did it to me in a dream :) I was laying down and she was sitting beside me ... she would reach into my thigh for example and pull out the thigh bone ... whole, just as a bone. Then she would hold it up and I could see it had a few dark smudges on it. She would wipe the bone with a cloth and then breath on it so it was clean, then put it back in my thigh. She did this for several bones.
    Pila Mulligan: And when I awoke I felt remarkably refreshed :)

    2009.06.14 19:00 - Let the Sun Shine In

    2009.06.15 01:00 - A bit of politics

    Emotions are partial not whole

    Nymf Hathaway: I use the time before I fall asleep, 10 deep breaths in and slowly out again and try to fill my head with positive thoughts. Since I do my asthma almost disappeared ... I think asthma patients do not inhale correctly... since I discovered my better working lungs by this.
    Bertrum Quan: Perhaps there's also a reduction in stress as well.
    Nymf Hathaway: I agree. Stress makes it worse. Or maybe we should say Emotion does.
    Bertrum Quan: All emotion (or emotions)?
    Nymf Hathaway: Sadness, stress, anger etc seem to increase attacks, even laughing can.
    Bertrum Quan: Feelings of joy? I would think they might reduce attacks...
    Nymf Hathaway: No not always … I discovered the breathing doesn't go as deep as I should when I laugh or are sad.... so that’s why I think inhaling deep seems to resolve it. It does for me :) Slowly but deep.

    2009.06.15 13:00 - PaB and Metacommunication

    The group discusses re: Kenji. This time around how much did I learn about myself why/how I react in certain situations?

    Stim Morane: I agree that one can learn from such encounters, but there may not be any one lesson that is learned across the board re such situations.
