more inspiration...

just finished an old (but new to me) classic: "way of the peaceful warrior" by Dan Millman. thx to Lisa Lipscomb for the reference (see her goal #16). it was a fun, easy and enlightening read. here's a snippet:

"There is no need to search; achievement leads to nowhere. It makes no difference at all, so just be happy now! Love is the only reality of the world... the only laws are paradox, humor and change..."

ok that sounds pretty flaky out of context; it is a hippy-dippy philosophy (similar to Carlos Casteneda's) but a good story nonetheless and I recommend it.

if you want something more logical, more cut-and-dried, try these lecture notes on free will and determinism I also read this evening (hint: he thinks we have free will).
