    However, it's about embracing the essence of those concepts and, as Martin (Minstrel says), having, I quote: "the wisdom and serenity to know whats really important in life" [clue: not money or material possessions], and not taking your eye off that ball

    Cool - and *that*, my friend, [and liking what you see, I don't necessarily mean in a physical sense, but as they say, your eyes are the window to your soul - and so only by liking who/what YOU are, can you hope to love or like others], is VERY important.

    And yes, I'm quite a perceptive person. Too many broken/damaged people out there, spending their 'lives' hating the world and everyone in it, as a result of not liking what they see when they look in that mirror....

    Getting rather deep today, aren't we?

    It's good Marco but it is no substitute for the real thing

    Yes, I'd think so. That's why I never say a bad word about enjoying a little bit of hypocrisy now and again

    But isn't that a bit like marking your own homework? Look in mirror, see self, happy with what you see, job done.

    But as Rabbie Burns put it:
    'O wad some Pow'r the giftie gie us
    To see oursels as ithers see us!'
