Education is knowing where to go to find out what you need to know; and it's knowing how to use the information you get. - William Feather

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Symptoms of Inner Peace
Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace. The hearts of great people have already been exposed to inner peace, and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.
Some Signs and Symptoms of Inner Peace
A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences
An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment
A loss of interest in judging other people
A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others
A loss of interest in judging self
A loss of interest in conflict
A loss of ability to worry (A very serious symptom!)
Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation
Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature
Frequent attacks of smiling
An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than to make them happen
An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it
If you have some or all of the above symptoms, please be advised that your condition of inner peace may be so far advanced as to not be curable. If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting any of these symptoms, remain exposed at your own risk!

Thousands of Pakistanis who applied for citizenship to the country of Ladonia were disappointed to find out that the "northern European" country exists only on the Internet. A Swedish artist created the country in 1996 to protest the Swedish government.
