    2009.09.12 07:00 - Watching the Boundary

    doug Sosa: I've been thinking about transitions, like from watching a movie to RL.
    doug Sosa: going from RL through 9 sec is like a transition for me.
    doug Sosa: the way we hold on and let go of the experience we are moving out of.
    Eliza Madrigal: Hmm
    doug Sosa: i watched a movie last night filmed in washington, where i used to live.
    Pema Pera: can you translate that in an exploration we can do in the next 90 seconds, Doug?
    doug Sosa: roused memories, and when the film was over
    doug Sosa: i had a harder time letting go of the assumption i was in washington.
    doug Sosa: watch the boundary, how we tranlate from one to the other, in to and out.


    Eos Amaterasu: I was feeling a bit more clarity/softness within stuff (thoughts, soiunds) happening
    Eos Amaterasu: with tolerances/less-attachment to the details of the stuff, bit more able to be within their space
    Eos Amaterasu: *tolerance of
    Eliza Madrigal: Eos, that sounds a bit like Doug's equality of everything?
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes, I think it's in that direction
    Pema Pera: yes, tolerance is one of the simple hallmarks of PaB, I'm beginning to see that more and more
    Bertram Jacobus: for me, it seems to be a bit difficult, to get used with this short time, because i usually do longer meditation periods ... so the awareness comes only somtimes in the 9 / 90 secs. slowly often, too ...
    Pema Pera: it may be just a matter of practice, Bert
    Eos Amaterasu: With that kind of equality comes sense of resting
    Pema Pera: getting used to doing it for shorter times
    Eos Amaterasu: Also (re Bert) finding the short periods inside the long periods of meditating
    Eliza Madrigal: the shorter periods are good practice for building a different kind of precision maybe? toward immediacy.. very helpful
    Eos Amaterasu: But as I think happened in the RL retreat having a longer sustained time also has its effect, power
    Bertram Jacobus: "but" i like the longer periods so much (!) ... ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal smiles.... can do those too! :D

    Life is playing with you...

    Eos Amaterasu: Also with many short periods you find yourself sometimes not just entering the short period
    Eos Amaterasu: but also coming from that short period (to your surprise :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: in the midst of life
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: life is playing with you :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: and your "you-ness"
    Pema Pera: yes, very recognizable, all that, Eos, thanks for a nice summary!
