Happy Birthday Individual

Hmmm... just noticed that at the bottom of my index page it says that it is Individual's 25th birthday!

Happy Birthday, Individual!

You're now officially, an old person!

“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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Happy birthday, friend.

Metta,
Retro. :)
"When we transcend one level of truth, the new level becomes what is true for us. The previous one is now false. What one experiences may not be what is experienced by the world in general, but that may well be truer. (Ven. Nanananda)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...

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

- Ajahn Brahm

Happy Birthday, Individual!

Thanks everyone!

I remember at E-Sangha, people always mentioning others' birthdays... I felt left out, then I noticed it here. I wondered how anybody knew and it was seemingly because a person put their birthday in their bio. So I did that.

I half-expected you all to forget.
