- that sense of inevitable victory over the
forces of old and evil. Not in any mean or
military sense; we didn't need that. Our
energy would simply prevail. We had all the
momentum; we were riding the crest of a
high and beautiful wave. So now, less than
five years later, you can go up on a steep hill
in Las Vegas and look west, and with the right
kind of eyes you can almost see the high-
water mark - that place where the wave finally
broke and rolled back."-Raoul Duke
"Ashes to dust you wonder who's to trust
My sense of self, and my mental health
is much more powerful, than any hint of
wealth"-Gang Starr-Peace of mine

The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time-a tremendous whack.
All by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill.

Your mind is all you have. It's all you've ever had. It's all you have to offer other people. This might sound callous to say when there are many other aspects of your life that seem in need of being addressed, whether you are struggling to find a career, or you are sick, but it's still true. If you are perpetually angry, and depressed, and confused, and unloving, it doesn't matter how much success you have or who is in your life, you are not going to enjoy any of it.
I suspect you could all make a list of things you want to accomplish, of things that really need to be changed about your life. What is the significance of everything on that list? Each thing on the list seems to promise that if you could only do it, you would have reason to just be happy in the present moment. We are all trying to find a path back to the present moment and good enough reason to just be happy here.
The practice of meditation, often called mindfullness meditation, is just a trick for doing that. It's a trick for setting aside your to do list, if only for a few moments, and actually locate a feeling of fulfillment in the present. Again, I'm not saying that everything on your list is absurd, or not worth accomplishing, but how dissatisfied with the present do you have to be in order to prepare a satisfying future? How neurotic do you have to be? How unhappy do you have to be? How much stress do you have to feel? How unpleasant do you have to be for other people to be around?
If you are constantly ruminating about what you just did, or what you should have done, or what you would have done if you only had the chance, you will miss your life. You'll fail to connect with it. You'll fail to connect with other people. When other people talk, you'll be waiting for them to shut up so that you can say what's on your mind to say. Even when you don't have an opportunity to talk, in a moment like this, when you just need to listen, the conversation as an automaticity continues. You have a voice in your head that keeps saying things. Haven't you noticed?
The conversation we have with ourselves every minute of the day comes at a cost. I'm not saying that discursive thought is not necessary or useful, but it is the mechanism by which most of our suffering is inflicted. The sorrow, and the self-doubt, and the anxiety, and the fear. Thinking is useful, but being perpetually lost in thought isn't. The mere hostage of the next thought that comes careening into consciousness isn't useful.
The continuation (later on in the talk):
