Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Be the mystic I want to be

it’s been a loooong looong path and marking it as done does not mean I’m a mystic or I have all knowledge at all. It means I feel I have for such a time, followed a path and I’m inside a rutine of studies and prayers and behaviour that is necessary in my description of “mystic I want to be”.
I embraced Islam on the way, and it’s happened to be, to me, a comprehensive neverending mine of knowledge and spiritual and daily life pleasure.
Wish you all find a path into spirituality, as it makes you live in other way and very often you will find yourself so much happy and not affected as you used by passions and other stuff.

Celtic ChristianAre mystics dangerous?

“As long as we believe in the dirty rotten system, we’re going to have problems. For we don’t question it. We think we can genuflect before the system but go say our private prayers. But it won’t work. There is probably no one more truly radical than real persons of prayer because they are beholden to no ideology or economic system, but only to God. Both church and state are honestly threatened by true mystics. They can’t be bought off because their rewards are elsewhere.” ~ Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM

I never thought about how true mystics can viewed as a threat to both the church and state, which demonstrates the power that they yield. I can understand how a person can be so centered within God that they no longer have any fear of governments, but I never thought about it being the next step beyond to get to the point that one’s life is so centered within God that they also no longer fear the church (the church as an institution and not as the body of Christ). 2 years ago
