“Entertainment”

Ponder this quote for a moment. What were your initial thoughts and initial responses to this? Do you agree? Disagree? And why? Were you surprised by your initial response? After some time pondering the quote and your response, did anything change? What was your view on this type of entertainment before this quote and after it? And why? 

There is no right or wrong answer. Just a deeper awareness of yourself and your mind. 

If you’re asking why I do this sometimes…it’s because knowing yourself is the start to something much more beautiful in our lives. And knowing yourself doesn’t come in any one way. It takes some time and some practice. 

If you were not familiar with our contemporary civilization, if you had come here from another age or another planet, one of the things that would amaze you is that millions of people love and pay money to watch humans kill and inflict pain on each other and call it “entertainment.”
Eckhart Tolle
