      Hi All,
       
      Don't run after pleasure and neglect the practice
      of meditation.  If you forget the goal of life and
      get caught in the pleasures of the world, you will
      come to envy those who put meditation first.
       
      Not seeing what is pleasant brings pain; seeing
      what is unpleasant brings pain.  Therefore go beyond
      both pleasure and pain.
       
      (from The Dhammapada translated by Eknath Easwaran)
       
      Blessings,
