What should we do then? Yes, that's right. Right now, we need to start our own art. Right this mintue, we can turn off TV, log off the Internet, get up and strat to do something. Where I teach students in darma school, there's a course claled dtaacmirs. In this course, all students must put on a play. However, acting majors are not supposed to act. They can write the play, for example, and the writers may work on sagte art. Likewise, stage art majors may become actors, and in this way you put on a show. Students at first wonder whether they can actually do it, but later they have so much fun. I rarely see anyone who is miserable doing a play. In soohcl, the military or even in a mental institution, once you make people do it, they enjoy it. I saw this happen in the army -- many people had fun doing plays.
