Taken from the blog article: Where to find God.

"You don't need a book, or a course, or a church, or anything else to find God. You can find God right where you are, with nothing at all. It's simply a matter of surrendering. Simple doesn't mean easy though. It's not easy to surrender to God. We're stubborn. But there's no substitute for the peace we seek. Let go, and keep letting go every time you notice yourself resisting. We are our own enemy. There's no devil, it's just us."

Down below at the practice green.

I could easily shave off 3-4 strokes a round by honing my short game around the green. Time to work on those bump and runs, chipping out from the thick rough, and don't forget those tricky shots from the bunker.

In view of my upcoming assignment next month, it's time to get serious about the Ruby programming language. Although I already consider myself pretty good and gain great pleasure when coding amazing stuff with this wonderful language, an in-depth refresher from beginning to end would be useful and fun.

That's why I decided to give in and splurge, expanding my computer library collection by ordering the famous book.

This thick tome of more than seven hundred pages is the perfect medicine for me. It also looks real nice next to all my other Ruby books. I've now read about a third of this book and am sawing through it nicely with speed and agility.

Taken from the blog article: Beware of Extreme Rationality.

"All of us are irrational at times. Sometimes a lot of us become irrational together and this leads to extreme group behavior. What would be nice to see is a contagion of rationality. But it has to be rationality tempered by empathy and compassion. Otherwise, even rationality can cause extreme negative behavior. Extreme rationality is itself irrational."
