DhO Hacked and Upgrade

General

ATTENTION!: It appears that our server has been hacked through this version of Liferay, meaning it is no longer secure, and so expect instability as we deal with this and attempt to upgrade to Liferay 7, which we failed to be able to do last year the last time the team attempted it, but we have no choice at this point, so bear with us as we try again. Save any long posts in a text file before posting them. You can follow me on Twitter at @danielmingram for updates if the site is down. Apologies for any complexity this causes. We will work as fast as we can. We have backups of the database, so hopefully nothing will be lost. Thanks to all helping with this complex process.

Shameful lack of interest in the fine arts round here....

This is what An Eternal Now refers to as an "I AM" experience.  In Theravada map terms this sometimes occurs during the A&P, but is not guaranteed or necessary.  I experienced it a few times during A&P phases.

Sounds of a glimpse of enlightenment to me, the very end of the path.  No idea in therava map terms.  I experienced something very similar, and it got me started on the path and provided the drive to keep on going.

I actually watched the video you posted, but I never responded, haha.  I marked it down to watch sometime - it looks pretty good. emoticon

It seems uncommon for it to be expressed so well and confidently in western art. I skimmed through Eugene O' Neill's biography but I couldn't find anything to reference it even though it seems undoubtedly autobiographical to me. I get the feeling that somewhere out there during his seaborne life he broke through his ego with no meditation needed. He obviously was no stranger to the dark night either.
