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.

for me it takes two forms which can be easily conflated.  both sets of sensations are very warm and pleasant for me and centered around the belly and the heart.

the easiest and earliest have to do with doing metta towards those i love most on a human level.  in the times i was doing a lot of metta it was possible for me to feel almost completely free of the personal benefit component of metta and to reach a state where the sensations around my heart shone with a bright clear desire to benefit others exclusively.

it was finer, clearer and spacious and i would now compare it to the higher jhanas.
