The other party has not arrived yet, so I guess I'll write more, on my Blackberry - product placement, yo!
Know how to achieve peace? It's deceptively simple, really.
Nothing exists other than the present moment. The past is history. Who cares? You can never change it, anyway.
The future, is a mystery. No one knows what will happen. I might be struck by lightning in a minute or two. Or get a US$400 million cheque. Who knows?
What does exist, is this instance, this moment, right now. No one, and no thing can ever exist. They are just scenes and characters that act out as soon as you are there.
Nothing matters but what is in front of you right now, which in my case, is my third pint.
