I would love to follow the Tao every moment of my life, but distractions abound. Everything and everyone clamors for my attention. This keeps me caught in a fear-based attempt to work my way to safety, to spend my way to safety, or failing at these, to distract myself from my fears. This is why culture is failing. The return of my life to peace and the return of my culture to sanity will depend on where I choose to focus my attention.
