It’s okay.

There has been some really good episodes but a lot of times they fall into couple bickering which even though that is reality it can be discouraging and the antithesis of zen. I think people seek this kind of show because they are suffering as a parent or in their marriage. Only white people would perceive their reality as zen which is rooted in enlightenment but they are far from it. They also talk about things that are completely irrelevant and take so long to get to the point. Like who cares about movie stars. Isn’t that part of the problem of constantly comparing ourselves to Hollywood? These people have built a shrine to that ideology.

High vibrations!
