Humans as transitional beings

“In a book I read recently, the author talked about humans as transitional beings — beings who are neither fully caught nor fully free, but are in the process of awakening. I find it helpful to think of myself this way. I’m in the process of becoming, in the process of evolving. I’m neither doomed nor completely free, but I’m creating my future with every word, every action, every thought.”

Your spirit, your consciousness, is always free

“When you turn directly toward your own true nature, you discover that your spirit, your consciousness, is always free. With that discovery comes a wellbeing that manifests as joy.”

~ Jack Kornfield

I like my platform freedom

As I've started to work on designing an HTML editor I'd like for the Mac platform, a little irony has set in: I find that I don't want to write it in Objective C. Given my history with Java, I find that I don't want to be tied to one platform, even Mac OS X. What if I install Ubuntu later this week (as scheduled) and fall madly in love with it? I want my application to work there also.
