I watched the video & found it to be realistic, which can bring dispassion (viraga) to the mind rather than aversion. To make such a video requires much giftedness & insight.

A good video. That person knows their Dukkha, scores highly on Samudaya, is quite weak on Nirodha, and fails on Magga.

A great movie but why not more movies about the positive side of things ? Modern people are infinitely better than people of the past. Why not a video showing the abundance of wealth we now enjoy, the huge life span, great healthcare, efforts done to help animals, etc.

When I was little, there was a sick stray dog living around my block. He was so sick that no veterinary in the city could help him. Fortunately there is an american non-profit association in my city that sent the dog on an airplane to america where he got treated by a good vet. The dog is still alive today and even has a facebook profile.

Just think about that for a moment. Am american non-profit organization from a random easten european city spent a couple of grand to save a stray dog. Such thing were not possible in the past. The period we are living now is a great one in terms of generosity and quality of life.

That was amazing thanks for sharing. Reminded me of Pink Floyds The Wall.

To practice is to know your defilements,

the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.
