Greetings all! It’s a pleasure to meet you. My name is Chraeloos, pronounced Kray-loos. You can call my Chrae (pron. Kray) if you’d like.
I’m a freelance event host in Second Life and InWorldz, which basically means that I host at all different venues in order to promote the venues and let people find neat places and neat people. If you have a venue or event suggestion please let me know. My schedule has a habit of changing (I also do many impromptu events), so you can join my group to stay more up to date: “Creativity; Karma” (SL) and “The Art of Bowing” IW.

Many people think of karma as fate, or determinism. But, really, karma is creative. It is unbounded. The common interpretation is when someone has something bad happen to them, we call it “bad karma.” But this interpretation of karma is misunderstood. We typically see karma as an uncontrollable factor in our lives. But, the literal translation of karma is “action” – human action. It does not control us. In fact, we control it. When we utilize action (even non-action is a form of action), we are influencing karma. When we are compassionate and friendly to others they are more likely to be compassionate and friendly in return. The reason to be compassionate should not be in anticipation of receiving it in return, but because it’s the right thing to do. Invite into your life what you want to share with others; we are all connected. If any one of us suffers, all the rest of us suffer. Everything you create in your life, every intention, thought, and action, will shape the rest of your creations. In every moment there is rebirth, in every moment there is death. We are always changing. But we are in control of that change. We can be whatever it is we want to be. Be creative with the way you live your life. Be aware of every moment, every thought. Be the witness, but also be the creator. So, the group is called “Creativity; Karma” because I want us to have a forum where we can explore ourselves, our ideas and our beliefs freely and openly, so we can expand our idea of what we want to bring into our lives, and share with others our thoughts without being put down. Since I believe that there is no such thing as teaching, we will experience mutual learning. I learn just as much from each of you as I may share with you. Let’s share some creative karma!
