Here Comes the Sun

I had a hard time sleeping last night and I started to think about this whole Earth in 20 years business. I think I may have come off as pessimistic (blame the indigestion). I don't want you to think that my outlook is so bleak. After seeing so many beautiful things and witnessing what human beings are capable of when they have chosen to do good things... it's a beautiful planet.

The key for me over the last few years is to strike some sort of balance. Life is ups and downs, beautiful and ugly, easy and difficult, yin and yang. I want to do my best to be a good human being. I think if there are enough people making this effort, the planet will find more balance. I left LA a few months back because something was way off. Now, I feel things leveling off a bit.

The morning sun has warmed up Vashisht. I need to head out and find some mellow food to get my strength back. Tomorrow night I'm jumping on another night bus back to Delhi.

    It�s almost mid-night here in California. I am attending to my patients as I am commenting on your page.

    I will make you a wager; come January 20 when you still refuse to agree that I am right about suggesting that your trip will be a sham I will donate $10,000 to fund your paypal account. In all honesty, you and your perfidious friends are very careless when it comes to planning for long-term career options.

    All the best, Anteater.

    Maybe because we have long term careers already Doc. Did you ever consider that you aren't the only one with a career. Maybe spending careful attention to your patients would be advisable. Are you attending to patients or are you surfing the web again. Seems to me that your patients might appreciate the undivided attention.

    So all he has to do is refuse to agree with you and you will fund him$10,000. I think you are a sham. You won't pay the money. But nice try, sounding like you are well off enough to give money away. I will make you a wager. I'll match what you promise to give. And I'll even wager that you renegotiate the terms when the time comes. We are learning that you are just a bunch of hot air. Well why don't you just go fund a meal now, you cheap bastard.

    I didn't realize that the only sound long-term career is a Dr.

    You should stop claiming Anteater because fellow Anteaters don't appreciate your claims. We aren't impressed by your so called donation. If you can't even donate a meal, don't start making outlandish wagers that you don't plan on keeping.

    Prove your worth and donate to

    Oh, you probably don't have the money right now, huh?

    Hoang Nguyen is pathetic. Still don't have a woman to call. Just a web blog to keep you company.

    Hoang- have you already planned the next 40 years of your life? sounds pretty boring to me.

    I'm going to wander into the religious for a second, so anyone who might be put off by that should stop reading now.


    I don't know if you're a Christian, but what I assume to be the best known prayer in Christianity is the Lord's Prayer. I say this because it advises us against the temptation to worry about our entire future, or even next year, next month, next week, or even tomorrow. It expresses gratitude for what we will receive today, "Give us this day our daily bread." In Matthew we are told to take no thought for what we eat, wear, etc. Jesus assures us that God know our human needs and will take care of them. "Seek ye first the kingdom of heavan, and all these things will be added unto you."

    It might come as a shock to you, but your entire fixation on your career, wealth, status, not to mention your fixation on Tony's adventure (or to you misadventure) is a violation of the first commandment. You have made a god of your career and put it before God.

    If you aren't a Christian, or a religious man, then I haven't said anything here you care about. Just remember, "Judge not, lest ye be judged."

    I agree with the orthopaedic surgeon: Don't make promises no one believes you will keep. Provide some daily bread by making a contribution to FeedTony.

    I am also fascinated with the whole 2012 thing. The Incas and Mayans both believe that this will be the end of the 4th (maybe 3rd) age of man. We will be leaving the industrial age and entering the spiritual age of man. I look forward to that.

    Hey Tony--

    Whoo whoo!!! Looks like you just got funded to go to South America at the end of January!

    Did you happen to read an article in USA Today near the end of July about how many people hide behind these blogs -- saying things they wouldn't say face to face - rude and insulting things, at that? (sound familiar?) It's sad. Is the art of civilized conversation fading into history?

    The Internet is a weird place. I can't wait to see how it's effected the psychology and behavior of society. You can be anything or anyone on here and really push people's buttons... at the push of a button!

    Peace be with you all.
