My GBCF thread

Postby Dan74 » Wed Mar 03, 2010 12:49 am

that's a "Good Bye Cool Forum"!

Anticipating an extended break due to time constraints etc so on an off-chance of anyone wanting to contact, the email is galton.watson at

May you all be well (and attain liberation by the next time I log in!)

It's been fun and very instructive!

Deep thanks to all those who keep this place running and who truly contribute.

Hi Dan
Have fun while you're away. And I hope you become liberated by the next time you visit!
kind regards

“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.

Take care Dan, thanks for the Dhamma discussions and the chess games. I look forward to seeing you back here.
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

Greetings Dan,

Thanks for your efforts - I hope we might see you back after a sabbatical!

You wouldn't be the first to leave, and then come back, and leave, then come back... :tongue:

Be well.

"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'."
(Snp 3.6)

"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)

See you soon Dan.
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)
