I kid. I'm not gonna drink after 31 years. It's not even 2011 yet. I have enough illusions to freak out about already.
Check this heavy duty passage out:
"To limit the mind to what it provably knows is to reduce it in size and influence so it becomes one's servant and not one's master. It becomes obvious that the mind actually deals in presumptions, appearances, percieved events, nonprovable conclusions, and mentations which it misidentifies as reality. No such reality as that constructed by the mind actually exists.
The mind tends to be expansive and credits itself with 'worthy' thoughts and opinions. When carefully examined, one finds that all opinions are worthless. They are all vanities and have no importance or intrinsic merit. Everyone's mind is loaded with endless opinions, and when seen for what they are, opinions are really only mentations. What is of more importance, however, is that they stem from and reinforce positionalities, and it is these positionalites which bring on endless suffering." ~ D. R. Hawkins, Phd, Md.
