DhO Upgrade happening now! Stop posting until complete. Important

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

Happy Birthday, Daniel :)

Daniel,

I just want to wish you many happy, healthy returns of your birthday-- and that's basically just for my own benefit :] By setting up this site and sharing your training, your experiences, your re-considerations...you've made a huge and helpful difference in my life. And you've actually paid for us to be able to set up our practices here.

I simply would not have practiced deeply and sincerely for these past three and a half years without what you've set up, without your humility in replying to my first email something like, "More minds are better than one", your reading of old texts, your recommendations on training centres, and mainly your emphasis on honesty, sincerity, actually practicing over jabbering on and on, and actual, pragmatic outcomes no matter the label given to the practice/the experiences --- a huge beneficial effect on me. I also really doubt I would have done this without such a medical doctor in the emergency department (highly practical-outcome-oriented) putting himself out to the entire world sharing his experience and study of the mind from his personal work. To me, this ability to be so open (sometimes aka: "Vulnerable"), is a massive quiet true strength that I hope grows in the world, that I hope also grow in the world.

I can only hope to pay this forward and relax around my own many mistakes in it, too : )


Thank you,
Katy

PS: I hope in your second book you do not cut the humorous writing style, quirky descriptions.

Happy b-day.
I too would like to thank you. You have given an immeasurable gift to the world in your writing and the Dho. It has helped me immensely and has guided me thru the good and the bad. I wouldn't have gotten to where I am without your great input.
Keep it up, your changing the world in the best of ways. I am inspired to pass it forward in the small ways I can.
With Metta,
~D

Yes, happy birthday Daniel! Reading your book in 2010 was like stepping back into light – so many unformed questions answered, waves of relief and joy (and laughter) rolling through the body. Thank you very much.

Daniel,
Thank you for all you have done here. I remain inspired by your example, your efforts and your willingness to share these rare jewels with the world.

My life would be very different had I not had the very good fortune to have encountered this site and your book.

Cheers,

Tom Moylan

Hey! Thanks everybody! So kind of you to think of me on my birthday.

I am lucky enough to be hanging with some friends in Maggie Valley in the mountains of North Carolina just enjoying the place before I go back to work in Huntsville, Alabama, as my time commuting to and working in Tupelo, Mississississippi has ended.

I also benefit tremendously from everyone here and their input and perspectives, so thanks to you all for everything you post and contribute.

Happy early and belated birthday to you all,

Daniel

It's that ridiculous time of year again and everyone's older...

Thank you for the training site and many happy returns, Daniel. To me, it's not easy, it's bumpy, but thank for for creating the space and dialog for bhavana.

2/19/15 12:19 PM as a reply to DrewMiller (2/6/14 10:38 AM).

(Another time-warp thread, starting 2014 Feb 5-6, and suddenly resurrected, continued 2015 Feb ?)

So then Daniel's birthday is Feb 5th? (How old now is he / are you, if I may ask?)

Might as well celebrate this week – adding to the festivities:

13th Weibernachtstag ("Wives' night day") – German Karnival practice when women get to cut-off men's (e.g. bosses, husbands,…) neckties;
14th Valentine's Day (USA);
16th President's Day (USA);
16th Rosenmontag ("Rose Monday" -- climactic German Karnival day)
17th + MardiGras ("Fat Tuesday" -- climactic French/Cajun/Rio carnival day, aka Anglican/Episcopalian "Shrove Tuesday")
18th + Ash Wednesday (for Christians -- the party's over!);
BUT it's also just beginning:
19th Chinese (& broadly Asian) / lunar New Year (two week party, begins 2nd new moon after the winter solstice; ends at full moon; and the party begin/end days happen to be Uposatha days – Buddhist "Sundays")

Next, 40 days after Ash Wednesday, comes Easter; or rather: Ash Wednesday is determined as 40 days prior to Easter, which is the 1st Sunday after the 1st full moon after the spring equinox. (So that puts it into some fixed relationship to the lunar new year?)

Good time, too, to celebrate recovery from the DhO "Snow Moon Massacre" (Full moon on Feb 3, at about the time the thread "Q&A with Kenneth Folk [#1]" morphed into the thread "Money and the Buddha"!

Many happy returns Daniel, as they say!
or as others might say, NO MORE REBIRTHS!

Good catch, Chris! I think it must be Feb. 5, right, since his crazy tongue-in-check MCTB bio blub proudly announces that he is a double Aquarian.

Dear Daniel,

Happy Birthday, and many returns. As I try to find the words with with to thank you for all that you've been and all that you've done to help me and so many, for once, words really do fail me. 

Let them fail, so long as yours may continue.

All blessings,

Jenny

Ditto, from the many nameless ones who get great help from this website and book -- even though they don't write often. You are much appreciated!

Daniel, 


Happy Birthday!  And many thanks, for your book and your website.  Without reading your book I am unsure as to whether I would have started up a daily practice, I was meandering, and your book inspired me, made things real.

Thanks again, 

Psi

Thanks for saving my life with your awesome website! emoticon

I wouldn't have believed a word of this 'mumbo jumbo' about nanas and secret treasure maps from the 'orient' if it hadn't been coming from a medical doctor....

Your cause and effect of teachings has helped my cause and effect to go in the right direction. It's easy to forget.
