It is not made public in his profile but I don't think he would mind if I reveal it it here.

2 November is Retro's birthday.

Happy Birthday Retro!

Thank you for your hard work!

My sources told me it was tomorrow, but tomorrow is already today for some of you.

Happy B'day, Retro!

Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union

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

sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Happy Birthday Retro! :twothumbsup:
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things
