DhO Upgrade happening now! Stop posting until complete.

General

Dear All, The remarkable Manish is about to backup and upgrade Liferay to Liferay 7. This is the fundamental platform on which the DhO runs. As such, anything posted from about now (January 23, Saturday, at around noon Central Time) will likely be lost until the upgrade is complete. Thus, stop posting anything you wish to last now until this is done! Thanks! -Daniel, Owner of the DhO

Not sure why you think its spam.

It's a page long PDF on how to turn a room in your home into a meditation cell which you can lock yourself into for an alloted amount of time. It's very useful.

First time poster. 2 identical threads. No other words like "hi folks I am ... introduction" and only a link to click. I can't see if it's uploaded to DhO. 

So, yes, emoticon I'm likely mad bro emoticon

My optimistic side says this is another account created by Ni Nurta himself! Mind games! It's all silly as Dream Walker said though.

Perhaps bringing in a small rock hammer (sort of like a fire axe) to break open self locking container in the rare case that someone is screaming for help outside of the room, lol.
Awesome idea for meditation accountability

That is not the important question. The important question is, why did you (or someone else, if it wasn't you), create these 3 threads with attachments.

Don't you think me recommending locking oneself to meditate would be completely out of my character?
Besides attachments are unskillful emoticon

I just posed a question to you. It's up to you to answer it or not, that was it you that created these 3 threads with file attachments or not? Simple.

If you do not like attchments on dho then go to site administrator.
Also please do not accuse people, it is unskillful.

And no, I did not create these threads and did not add any attachments.

Now I will ask a question: feeling well today?

Hi Pawel,
I wanted to apologize you for accusing you in this thread.
It was pretty damn unskillful, and I am sorry that I did it.
I've noticed since then that the fact that I was ignoring this impluse to apologize publicly, was uglier than the action itself.
I wish you could forgive me.
Thank you.

Though I do not hold any grudge against you or anything like that.

...anyhow, author of this topic wrote about locking oneself in some place without distractions (so also without telephone/internets/etc.) to meditate and haven't written ever since... hope she did not overshoot her practice and go directly to parinibbana... emoticon

Hi Christie, and welcome to DhO, where every door out is always open, lol.

I see that you haven't been here since late October, and I hope you didn't set the timer wrong on your self-locking cell! If so, I hope you emerge better for the retreat. 

Balzac used to chain himself to his writing desk, when he was determined to finish a novel. So the self-locking idea in the service of a higher aim is not unprecedented. Odysseus had himself tied to the mast, so he could hear the sirens' song as his ear-plugged crew rowed past them, another self-locking in the service of art and contemplation. So you're in good company. I have been in a few locked cells myself, but other people had the keys. still, we meditate where we find ourselves.

There are a few meditators here as well, lol. Feel free to join the mayhem.

best, tim
