mikenz66 - helping out as a global moderator

Postby 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. :)

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Great choice! Welcome Mike!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Fantastic!
