It's all about balance, as bad as it is in suffering, it's just as bad in very bright light, the middle is the sweet spot.

Addiction to past stories, and fear of future events, is the ultimate distraction from this moment right now, the only true time there is.
The truth is, that everything is true, and personal belief governs experience. What I believe about others takes away space and time from what I can believe about myself. The most advanced belief system is 'there are no others'.
