mikenz66 - helping out as a global moderator

Post by retrofuturist » Thu Jan 27, 2011 8:54 am

Greetings,

Due to unprecedented traffic here at Dhamma Wheel, Mike is going to be filling in as a Global Moderator for the time being.

We'll review the situation in the near future... taking into account factors like site traffic and whether we're overloading him with things to do (given that he's also very active as Study Group leader, as I'm sure you've noticed).

Please make Mike feel welcome in this new role.

:thumbsup:

Metta,
Retro. :)

Great choice! Welcome Mike!

To practice is to know your defilements,

Great! :smile:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Fantastic!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
