Kent @ The Financial Philosopher

Andrew & Padre:

You both address, in my humble opinion, the idea of "being and nothingness," which is fundamentally a Taoist belief but also propelled in some ways by Hegel.

I like these quotes both from the same philosopher, Ram Dass:

"Resistance to the unpleasant situation is the root of all suffering."

"You spent the first half of your life becoming somebody. Now you can work on becoming nobody, which is really somebody. For when you become nobody there is no tension, no pretense, no one trying to be anyone or anything. The natural state of the mind shines through unobstructed -- and the natural state of the mind is pure love."
