Following my sustained meditation on four letter words, I saw a book in a bookshop. I felt I just had to mention it here:
According to the author, saying the blunt little mantra that adorns the cover (minus the polite asterisks) 'is like massage for the mind – relaxing you, releasing tension, giving up on things that aren't working... it is the perfect western expression of the eastern ideas of letting go, giving up and finding real freedom by realising that things don't matter so much (if at all).'
I'm not recommending it; a quick flick gave me the impression it's mostly quasi-spiritual, self-help guff.
But it made me smile - especially after what I'd written.
