Thought of the Day

"How I will be at the moment of my death is completely dependent upon my actions now, in this present moment. . . . [W]hen death arrives the only thing remaining to do is simply merge one's present awareness with the clarity of mind itself, for the past is complete and the future unknowable."

--Matteo Pistono, In the Shadow of the Buddha (Dutton, forthcoming January 2011)
