Shows how crazy our society is. College coaches are payed way more than professors. Sports figures are worshipped like gods. People go crazy over games even to the point of killing each other (South American or European football examples). Kids taking steroids. People cheer for and act like they are part of a specific team only because they live nearby. Or attended a specific school. I'm not just talking about "average" people, I see doctors, engineers, business executives, etc also going crazy. All because someone hits a ball with a stick or kicks it or runs with it or throws it.

It's like we live in a really big insane asylum.

Insane asylum sounds depressing.

I look at it like a really big cartoon.

Reality is led by mind, made by mind.

Depressed\depressing states of mind create depressing realities. (Nothing to smile about!)

Yeah, insane asylum. We are just talking about sports here. We left out war, crime, religious fanatics, etc etc etc.

I'm not saying absolutely everyone is crazy, but there is a lot more crazy than you would like to think.

If you think I am wrong, you just need to meet my wife's family. That will change your mind.

Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things
