The 'Thoughts of the Week' are often strangely appropriate for my own (far less inspired) thoughts of that week! Thank you for these lovely little gifts.

Helpful thought. I always seem to have problems with motivation, (actually sitting down and starting to meditate), and boredom during meditation. I will try to think of them differently.

A very timely email for me, as a the last week or so I have been feeling overwhelmed by all the things that 'need to be put right' in the world. I am a little confused at the last paragraph..it is good advice, but seemingly starts a completely new train of thought.
 

Do-Nothing Cultivation, by Masanobu Fukuoka

I agree there are many things, such as agriculture, that would benefit from less interference from humans. And it is true that many illnesses are caused by an unnatural way of life. But it's too simplistic to apply this idea to everything. Children are not just educated 'so they can get along', although it sometimes seems that way. They are educated so they can think for themselves. (For example reading, analysing and commenting on philosophies they find on the net!) And I feel that a musical education can only have a positive effect on someone, making it EASIER for them to hear the beauty and music in the sounds of nature. It surely would not stop them. I don't think human culture is as purely destructive as it is suggested here.

So true. It reminds of the Bill Hicks quote: [talking to audience]'If any of you are in advertising or marketing - kill yourselves.' I just watched a documentary on TV, where a young man seriously said he'd like to get a 'D&G' logo tattood on the back of his neck.
