      Sitting with my group tonight. Sunday was cancelled, so tonight will be a trial run with about 5 sitters.

      An interesting experiment in sitting in one place and time with a group with folks around the world, no here and there. Let us know how the experiment goes.

      We had a small group of three last night. I think they were very curious to see me walking into the "zendo" with laptop in hand. Once I explained my plans, they were very open to it. It was a very pleasant experience (despite the echo) that I hope to continue regularly. I do have to sort out some equipment issues as I borrowed my daughters lap top last night. She's starting college the week of labor day and taking that with her. As soon as I get it sorted, we will incorporate our sits with tree leafs sits. Unfortunately due the schedule and availability of the room, I wont be able to do it live. but, that's OK. Now is always now, no matter what anyone tries to tell you.

    daitetsu, you just said that depending on how god is defined you are a believer or an atheist. What are you before anything is defined, believed or thought

    Theism, Atheism, Painting and God

    Daitetsu, I'm putting your post here because I think it's important and I have to respond.

    I'm more akin to that idea of God presented

    It does not matter whether one is a non-believer, because one has no concept of God or because of a consious decision - both cases are Atheism.
