A warning against putting faith in special meditative experiences

2021.10.17 17:49 chakari10 A warning against putting faith in special meditative experiences

I have learned, rather painfully that it wasn't helpful for me to base my faith in dhamma on the special experiences I had during meditation.
There were times when I experienced equanimity, feelings of utter safety, and an effortless awareness of impermanence. For years I was convinced that the dhamma was a true refuge and I had so much confidence that nibbana was attainable. Even when I stopped experiencing these things I still believed this for years.
However, what I learned over the past few years was that these experiences weren't based on a deep letting go due to practice. Rather, I was already going through a hugely contented period of my life and that's what supported me going into these trace-like experiences. Because I practiced dhamma so intently at a time, the experiences took on the flavour of Buddhism and I believed it was all because of my practice. This was a difficult pill to swallow because I thought my practice was advanced and I lost a lot of reason for thinking that practice is worthwhile.
I now have a more rounded understanding of this and I am appreciating the tiny relief from letting go which happens when practicing moment to moment. I don't need any big experiences to tell me that this is a valuable practice.

It’s not like she could wear it anywhere in public with all the news around?
It doesn’t make much sense when you really think about it.

Apparently they REALLY loved the chicken soup for the soil I put here in summer because they're popping up all over those spots now that it's cooler.

2021.10.17 17:49 Jam-in-boi I wanted to ask if this is a good idea to jump in a server with a random person and go 1v1

So long story short I wanna do a usa vs japan game but have it 1v1. As in go into console commands and give asia to japan, the americas and australia to the usa, and let switzerland be a mega neutral in europe and africa to trade with. Tried to do it with the AI, but the AI does not like massive navies being in one fleet as I found out. And after lots of testing and mod searching I didn't get anything. So now I am just like fuck it, I will do it with another person. But I wanna make sure this is a smart idea first. After all I don't wanna do it and then have the person I am playing with tell me they are leaving cause they are bored.

2021.10.17 17:49 throwawayyy223442 My boyfriend won't let me buy a vibrator

Hi I'd like some advice on weather this is normal and perhaps how to start a conversation about this with my partner, as the title says my partner won't let me have any sex toys, the reason for this is because he says he doesn't want me using them while he's not at home or not with me, not sure why he feels this way but okay, the problem is when we have sex it's just he does what he wants finishes then goes to sleep and I've not really gotten anything out of the interaction he's the only one that's been satisfied, I've tried to tell him this but he cut me off and said "I don't want to talk about how shit I am in bed", I didn't say he was shit I was trying to say that not all women get enjoyment out of only penetration and to make it more enjoyable for both of us perhaps I could get a toy, he of course is having none of it and we don't really have sex anymore because I don't really enjoy it, he complains about the lack of sex but won't allow me to try and make things better, im a pretty awkward person so I find it hard to talk about with him does anyone have any advice for me about how to start a conversation about this?, is it reasonable to not let your partner buy a sex toy?.

If I trade with a villager it locks its trades, but if I turn it into a zombie and back will it still keep its trades or no?

2021.10.17 17:49 _DBA_ Consoles can only log if there’s no queue

So long story short. Yesterday I was able to log on ps5 at around 00:00 UTC.
Most likely the cause is simple - they applied the patch for PC and on the server side, but not for consoles, consoles just time out.
So whenever there is a queue we can’t log on consoles, it will just error out…

2021.10.17 17:49 cherry-pick-me Get £40 for signing up to Coinbase through Topcashback

You will get £40 when you sign up to Coinbase via Topcashback and make your first trade of any amount (no minimum). This is better than using a Coinbase referral link to sign up which requires an ~£72 trade and you'd only get ~£7.
Once you've signed up to Coinbase, you can earn an additional ~£22-24 for free just by doing some quizzes in Coinbase (see Learn and Earn tab) which requires no spending!
Additionally, you will earn a £5 Bonus when you join Topcashback and reach a treshold of £10 cashback. This is not related to the Coinbase offer, so regardless whether you continue to use Topcashback or not, you will get your £40 for signing to Coinbash through Topcashback.
They offer CLASSIC (free) and PLUS accounts (for £5 a year, which is deducted from your cashback earned).
Here are their Terms and Conditions.

  1. Sign up to Topcashback (for the CLASSIC - fee free membership) using my referral link. Alternatively, you can use a non-referral link.
  2. Switch off any ad blockers and tracking protection in your browser.
  3. On Topcashback, search for Coinbase and open the Coinbase offer.
  4. Click Get Cashback Now and sign up for a Coinbase account. Verify your identity and make your first trade of any amount. I bought Dogecoin for £2 (including the trading fee which was 99p if I remember correctly). Make this trade before exiting from Coinbase’s account otherwise your £40 cashback will not be paid (so do not sign out of Coinbase until you have traded to ensure your purchase tracks through Topcashback).
  5. Your purchase should track within a few days, and the £40 should then be paid the following month. I signed up on 1st of September and my cashback was paid to my Topcashback account today, 17th October. If your cashback doesn't track automatically, submit a "Missing Cashback" query with Topcashback within 30 days of the transaction.
  6. Once your Coinbase cashback becomes payable, you can withdraw it to your bank account for free.
  7. Additionally, head to Learn and Earn tab in Coinbase to get another ~£22-24 in crypto for completing some short quizzes. This bonus is instantly withdrawable.
If you get stuck or have further questions, please DM and I will promptly reply/help you out!
Happy topcashbacking and enjoy the free money!
❤️ ❤️

2021.10.17 17:49 Ultra-1 We Need to Talk Part.1

Good Morning /Good Afternoon Family. I was clearing out my phone of photos this morning and I came across a photo that really ticked Me off. Infact, it's a screen shot of something I was watching that made me take the photo. Because in all of my 30 years plus of being in the sport of horse racing and following it just made Me feel that something was drastically wrong with this list. See, more than any other sport. Horse racing media and fans tend to be prisoners of the moment and remove all logic and reason when they make cases for their favorites. For some reason whatever reason it may be. people want to believe that what they have seen in their life is the best version that there's ever been. Totally dismissive and absent of the facts.
