Effort happens when the mind fights with itself, when two inimical desires feud with one another, e.g. “Do it!” “Don’t want to!” No natural process involves a descent into civil war. Politicians like to say they’re working hard. A damaged planet pleads: Stop that!
Gentlemen: Now we know that the planet has its own intelligence and we are improperly aligned with it; that a more horizontal way of doing things is overdue; and that we’re tired anyway.
Up to this point, humans have not been a blessing on the planet.
We say, “I’ll throw this away” without realizing that there is no ‘away’.
