The Way of Zen

"One key question for breaking free of consumer culture’s hamster wheel."
Watch the remixed video entitled “What Would You Do if Money Were No Object” which takes Alan Watts' (1915-1973), the British philosopher and writer of the cult-classic The Way of Zen, ideas and remixes them into a short video which Brain Pickings summed up as a video where, "...Watts asks the seemingly simple question of what you would do if money were no object."

After viewing the film read the following quote:
"If you say that money is the most important thing, you’ll spend your life completely wasting your time: You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is, in order to go on doing things you don’t like doing — which is stupid!"
Do you agree with the statement or disagree with the statement?  Why or why not?  Don't forget, a minimum of five sentences is required.  Start Scribbling!
