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.

NPR Invisibilia: Secret History of Thoughts

Okay, well, I made my way into the kitchen again tonight to make another huge coffee (trying to kill a virus with coffee when sleep doesn't quite do it.. probably not skillful, but I'm awake!) and I heard my second Invisibilia story on National Public radio: http://www.npr.org/programs/invisibilia/375927143/the-secret-history-of-thoughts 

It is 33+ minutes long.

And it follows a man who started having very violent thoughts towards his wife and how he learned to deal with this and how common it is thought (!) that such disturbed thinking is.

To me, the article touches on a number of practical theories, and ends on a sort of mindfulness note.

This reporting, too, may be useful to other meditators, like the "Ghost Boy" Invisibilia article linked here yesterday about and with Martin Pistorius. http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2015/01/09/376084137/trapped-in-his-body-for-12-years-a-man-breaks-free
