With best wishes

Only in a vertical view, straight down into the abyss of his own personal existence, is a man capable of apprehending the perilous insecurity of his situation; and only a man who does apprehend this is prepared to listen to the Buddha's Teaching.

Dear friends

I'm posting this early but will stay online till the time comes.

Thank you DhammaWheelers for your friendship and support for the past year. Thank you for putting up with my often long-winded rants. Thank you most of all to the mods and admins for maintaining such a conducive environment for kalyana mittata.

May DW continue to grow and help guide seekers and wayfarers on the cyberpath of the Dhamma.

What will 2010 bring if not more happiness, sorrow, success, failure, jubilation, disappointment, and all the rest of it? But what possibility is there for celebration--for marking the outgoing of the old, for welcoming the incoming of the new, for embracing the impermanence of life--if not for these impossible things?

May we all be well.
With metta,
zavk

“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.

I suppose the day/s chosen wasnt exactly the easiest to get a turn out


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Greetings,

I suspect 80 might be the most number of members we've had on at one time, regardless.... I suspect the 99 record involved a whole lot of computer-generated bots etc.

:ugeek: :spy: :geek:

It was nice seeing you all here.

Metta,

Happy New Year Everyone! :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

- Ajahn Brahm
