    Act 1 Scene 1


    Bolonath Crystal: i like silence. it is a form of peace

    Since I am often silent at PaB meetings, I am sorry to have missed this one, as I think I would have fit in nicely.

    Act 1 Scene 2


    Crusty well defined my goal in life:

    Crusty Goldshark: better than yesterday and not as good as tomorrow

    Act 1 Scene 3


    I am glad Zen shared this quote, as love is a very important part of me:

    Zen Arado: Loving ourselves opens us to truly knowing ourselves as part of a matrix of existence, inextricably connected to the boundlessness of life. When we keep opening past any version of who we are that is crafted by others, when we see that we are far bigger than the person that is delineated by family or cultural expectations, we realize that we are capable of so much more than we usually dare to imagine. - Sharon Salzberg, The Force of Kindness

    Act 1 Scene 4


    No one showed, which made the atmosphere even colder...

    Act 2 Scene 1


    I like Calvino's image of the earth as a living cell:

    Calvino Rabeni: The oceans have so much structure, it made me think of the earth almost like a giant cell

    Act 2 Scene 2


    Storm gives a good reason to listen to others:

    Storm Nordwind: Second opinions can indeed be beneficial. Sometimes they give us fresh insight. Sometimes they help reinforce our existing view. They are always valuable... if we give ourselves time to listen. :)

    Act 2 Scene 3


    As usual, Pema knows just where to focus:

    Pema Pera: if you only focus on the content, you forget about the now, but if you see both the content (the past) and the time at which the content presents itself (the now) you can have your cake and eat it :)

    Act 2 Scene 4


    doug puts his finger on the difference between awareness and consciousness:

    doug Sosa: I do. i think we are - here i am in a minority - not getting a growth of social consciousness despite the rhetoric. We are getting some larger awareness but the loss of detail and culture is extraordinary.

    Act 3 Scene 1


    Calvino comes up with an interesting idea, a variation on the TV game show "Wheel Of Fortune":

    Calvino Rabeni: It would be interesting to have a big wheel here, to spin it, and select what mode of attention to have - or which of those minds to use

    Act 3 Scene 2


    Wester discovers one of Buddha's problems:

    Wester Kiranov: that's the thing. it somehow loses its essence by communicating it, yet NOT trying to communicate is not an option either

    Act 3 Scene 3


    Pema has a beautiful interpretation of learning a new language:

    Pema Pera: learning a new language is like entering a new world,
    Pema Pera: learning to think in new terms
    Pema Pera: think and feel and express

    to which I would add that when one enter's a new world, one grows as a result

    Act 3 Scene 4


    genesis gives a wonderful statement of what PaB means to her:

    genesis Zhangsun: my emphasis is a little broader or narrower depending on how you see it, an emphasis on how to use the process of PaB to bring more awareness about the issue of sustainability into daily life
    genesis Zhangsun: broader in the sense of general applied PaB and narrow in the sense that it is a call for individual action or practice
