Well 10 years ago we were all worried about Y2K. Now some are worried about 2012 and the Mayan Calender’s end of the world. If we make it though 2012, I believe 2016, 2034 and 2047 are the next few up as far as the end of the world predictions. As a Buddhist I don’t fret about these, for I’m living in the moment, not concerned what may or may not happen in a few years. This does not mean that I don’t plan for the future or prepare for it. It is just that my main focus is on the here and now. Just as a professor or a monk prepares for an upcoming speech, so too must we prepare for tomorrow. I read somewhere back in the Y2K era that there had been over 200 different years predicted as the end of the world already. I’ll be out with some friends, to enjoy a meal at a restaurant, enjoying good conversation, followed by watching the fireworks at midnight. I’ll be one of those waking up bright eyed and feeling great, unlike a large majority who will over indulge tonight. So to all may you enjoy peace, and good fellowship tonight. I am looking forward to further adventures or misadventures in blogging next year.
