      I am Corvi, and I'm responsible for the mess below.  As much as anyone is, anyway.

    • 2010.02.27 19:00 - Sharing in between Space
    • Archmage Atlantis: We hide our inner selves in soft words
    • 2010.02.27 13:00 - Final Retreat Theme Meeting
    • Mickorod Renard: I enjoyed discovering that in RL we were all pretty normal people, cos I had a suspician we might be wierd when we met
    • Pema Pera: the bottom line is that both Stim and I are feeling quite strongly now that PaB can really be a viable alternative for more traditional forms of meditation/contemplation, even though it bypasses in some sense the years of meditative training required in more traditional approaches
    • Pema Pera: IF
    • Pema Pera: and there is a strong if
    • Pema Pera: IF we are willing to really go all out in an intensely personal exploration
    • Pema Pera: trading in the years of sitting on a cushion for an intensely felt personal exploration in daily life
    • Mickorod Renard: is that intensely or insanely?
    • 2010.02.27 01:00 - Nada Yoga / Sounds are fun!
    • Aztlan Foss: i've been learning how to make music
      Aztlan Foss: and when something starts to sound well it almost feels like I didn't make it
      Aztlan Foss: because if you know the rules you pick what's been established that goes together
      Aztlan Foss: I think it's also because I'm not totally sure what's going on. I do it on the computer and I get sounds and I put them together then the computer plays it. As it's coming together, since i don't quite know what 'm doing, it just works.
      Aztlan Foss: OH! think o it this way, like your computer is broken and you start clickon on stuff and suddenly it works again.
      Aztlan Foss: you fixed it but youdon't know what you did
      Scathach Rhiadra: so like randomly creative?:)
      Aztlan Foss: i imagine if I was to be painting I wouldn't be able to do it this way. It would be like picking colors based on color theory, arranging them and not knowing what's going to come out till I look at the painting.
      Aztlan Foss: so I'm wondering how it works in the minds of real musicians
      Aztlan Foss: intresting thing about music is that it's visual in your head but you can't direcly look at it.
    • 2010.02.27 07:00 - hour of silence
    • 2010.02.26 07:00 - "I Really Don't Know How to Make Sense of Myself"
    • Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, the negativitiy is the issue, the motivation it triggers is good
      Yakuzza Lethecus: so what i need to drop are the nagative emotions that make stuck
    • 2010.02.25 19:00 - Aspiration!
    • Paradise Tennant: hmm there are two ways of looking at it .. the world being independent of thought .. a concrete reality that we take in
      Paradise Tennant: or another perspective - the world as a creation of our thoughts - so not so concrete not so independent. I just think the physical reality is a little more unusual than we can understand with our current sensory set up
    • 2010.02.25 13:00 - lucid dreaming
    • Lia Rikugun: ok i was reading a book
      Lia Rikugun: where it is written that the soul leaves the body during the sleep
      Lia Rikugun: this sounds very spectatcular
      Lia Rikugun: but i wanted to try out
      Lia Rikugun: what it would feel like if this was true
      Lia Rikugun: so somehow what would be the consequences
      Lia Rikugun: so this is what i thought of
      Lia Rikugun: and somehow my dreaming because more aware
      Lia Rikugun: i was very present in my dreaming
      Lia Rikugun: i dont know why or how
      Lia Rikugun: maybe it is also due to jetleg which i still have
      Lia Rikugun: it was just interesting to feel that
      Lia Rikugun: one problem:
      Lia Rikugun: i wake up in the morning and am completely tired
    • 2010.02.25 07:00 - Friendly night critters
    • 2010.02.25 01:00 - Working with Emotions
    •    Zen Arado: you reminded me of a bit where he says that problems are illusions
          Zen Arado: there are no problems - just situations to be dealt with
          Zen Arado: he says
          Zen Arado: we make situations into problems with all the things we add on in our minds
