I think Mr. Chekov’s words are more relevant than ever, with all the airy-fairy, faux enlightenment we are encouraged to pursue in this culture of every-thing-is-a-business, including health (care) and spiritual practices.
Industries like ‘health food,’ ‘wellness,’ and yoga also come to mind… but there are so many others…
Oh those Russians… ;)
“”Do silly things. Foolishness is a great deal more vital and healthy than our straining and striving after a meaningful life.”
-Anton Chekhov
