Today's Meditation Quote



Remind yourself that acceptance of the present moment has nothing to do with resignation in the face of what is happening. It simply means a clear acknowledgment that what is happening is happening. Acceptance doesn't tell you what to do. What happens next, what you choose to do, that has to come out of your understanding of this moment.

- from Wherever You Go, There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn.

Now Reading: No Place To Hide by Glenn Greenwald

“The ability to eavesdrop on people’s communications vests immense power in those who do it. And unless such power is held in check by rigorous oversight and accountability, it is almost certain to be abused. Expecting the US government to operate a massive surveillance machine in complete secrecy without falling prey to its temptations runs counter to every historical example and all available evidence about human nature.”

Excerpt From: Greenwald, Glenn. “No Place to Hide.”

You Should Read This

“The weirder something is, the more I want to know about it. The less likely it is for a guy like me to be a part of something, the more I want to get involved. My philosophy has always been “Why say no to anything?” The only things you have to abandon in order to live by it are common sense, a command of reason, and social acceptability. Not a bad trade.”

Excerpt From: Chris Gethard. “A Bad Idea I'm About to Do.”

CUSTOMER MOMENT OF YESTERDAY

"Can I have a sugar-free honey latte?"

"Ma'am, we can't do that sugar-free. We use real honey."

"But isn't honey naturally sugar-free?"

"No, ma'am."

"You sure?"

"Yes, ma'am."

"I'm not sure I believe you, but oh, well."
