For many reasons, I need to run a repeat today. I’ll tell you about it later. Next week will be a good one, and this actually leads off some of what I have to say well.
Our current world, at least in developed societies, rarely has time for reflection. Far too often we are expected to mechanically keep going through our daily slog. The only antidote offered is selfishness, rebellion and retreat back into our own skin for a few moments of pleasure.
That system is obviously not bringing happiness to many people’s lives. I would like to propose an alternative outlook on life which I will call “extasism”.
