and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.

than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.

Fear of the unknown is
the greatest fear of humankind,
and death the greatest unknown.

lies in living in the moment -
enjoying what you are doing today.
You don't need a reason to be happy,
just a choice.
