What would you do with your life if money was not part of the equation?


Alan Watts was a great man. A truly brilliant teacher. This is really inspirational, but it always leads me to think of the next logical step, which is that if we all only did what we wanted to do, who would be there to take haul away the trash and bury the bodies of the dead? I do like this speech, though, on the level of making you think: What is REALLY the point of making sure we earn enough money? I mean, you need a roof over your head and food, but isn’t that kind of all I need? Do people really need to commute for 2 hours a day and do heartless and soulless work for some green pieces of paper with a pyramid on them? Seems stupid and a waste of valuable time that’s slipping away.

The Parable of the Tigers and the Strawberry


I love Daniele Bolelli and Duncane Trussell. Two awesome human beings. This moment they had together when Danielle explains the Zen story of the Tigers and the Strawberry is so cool. It’s so inspirational and so meaningful. Daniel told this story after explaining about how he and his wife dealt with her terminal illness. It was really touching in that context. Plus Daniele’s voice really lends something to the telling of the story. Please watch it so that it’ll be in your mental arsenal when you need it the most – like in a bad or frustrating situation. Wild strawberries are growing everywhere.
