Moment of Clarity: How To Make Your Life Better and Other Trivial Matters

TRC contributor Lee Camp

I struggled with the title of this video. It's about life and religion and change and stability. So I guess it's about how we do everything. Maybe the title "How We Do Everything" would've been a little less broad.

[Editor's note: Cheers, Lee -- you summed up a lot of what is wrong with the culture in this short video.  And I heard an infamous Zen quote, "Let go or be dragged" echo in my head.
It's kinda popular with a few peeps at TRC. ~ Gabrielle]

“The prison is your culture, which you sustain generation after generation. You yourself are learning from your parents how to be a prisoner. Your parents learned from their parents how to be a prisoner. Their parents learned from their parents how to be a prisoner. And so on back to the beginning in the Fertile Crescent ten thousand years ago.”

TRC features media analysis, social critiques and spiritual refreshments focused on the socio/cultural impacts of a post-9/11, post-carbon, ponzi scheme world teetering on the edge of mass awakening or mutually assured destruction.

In the spirit of mass awakening, the following types of comments will not be approved:

- Comments that criticize any class of people as a whole, especially when based on an attribute they don't have control over
- Comments that explicitly call for violence
- Comments with links to third party sites that are not relevant to the content of the conversation. No spam.
- Because we moderate comments does not mean we do not have a sense of humor. The Royal 'We', you know, the editorial...
- know...take it easy, man. We're all in this together.
