Deceptions of Life

I am really sure that producers think very different than writers, and this difference have spoiled many wonders, because what should be a great message is changed to an advertising machine. When writers notice this fact, they start to feel discouragement.

Thomas Alba Edison said "Anything that won't sell, I don't want to invent. Its sale is proof of utility, and utility is success", but also, I think vices and money keep spoiling bright minds and ideas, and writers are not the exception. I am starting to feel that we need to forget everything about Utopia and Perfect World, and learn to live with all prejudices that Money brings, as we also live with the "Divine punishment" of "By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return."

Buddha also fought against great sources of suffering like birth, age, disease, death. We also need to add to that list things like people's greed towards Money and Power; to accept that people associates Quality of Life to Money and Power; to accept all of them as part of the process of life and not get too attached to them in order to reduce suffering ... but we also keep trying to find meaning and purpose of everything! Then, why do we feel good enough to get attached to things? It is because is not the right thing to get attached to? Maybe God is an egoist Who punishes everybody that don't pay attention to Him by giving them bad feelings. (God: If you don't pay attention to Me, then suffer!!)

Greed is a natural process in our lives. Everybody needs to suffer and pass through all this deceptions of life, surpass and overcome them, and leave evidence of their existence for other people, maybe new generations, to see them and either improve them, or find new deceptions.
