I haven’t seen a movie in awhile but lately movies that have been coming out seem to be part of a series. Even movies that are already in a series have individual books broken up into two or three parts. And now that I am older I realize old movies keep being remade again and again. While obviously the movie industry is thriving, how come we rarely step back and think about why we are caught in such a meaningless entertainment cycle? The simple truth is that our desires and attachments are getting stronger. We are trapped by our own desire for entertainment. So if you like watching lots of movies, maybe it’s time you try breaking free from a very time-consuming habit. You may experience internal struggle and cravings, but it’ll be good for your practice. Your true self will thank you.
