I would like to thank everyone who have been consulted with regards to the forum changes that include all of the admins, founding members, and moderators and a number of long-time members including Nana, Daverupa, Kim, Dan and others (forgive me if I do not mention you by name). Restructuring the meditation forum was something that had been on my mind quite a long time and it been given quite a bit of consideration by all concerned.
And thank you to Retrofuturist who implemented the changes. It was on my list of things to do but as a result of limits on my time and some ongoing connectivity issues, it wasn't happening in a timely manner.
“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.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
