Why do people go out for entertainment?
Why do people plan to get away for a weekend?
Man needs to escape routine. And what is the so-called routine, if not the repetition of circumstances full of new acts (although they are different), but seen through the eyes of the same state of consciousness?
Why then, do we arrange to go out?
It seems we always need to do something different; it is anxiety… Maybe in order not to be in emptiness, in inaction, one goes for action.
Although pleasure or displeasure may be found in entertainment, that search can only be unconscious, because consciously one would only seek pleasure. It would be a natural search for pleasure, maybe in the consciousness of nature; therefore, an act dictated by the universal mechanism itself.
We know by intuition that pleasure or displeasure may be found. And what makes us constantly search for something is a natural force of the great mechanism.
Then comes the question: Why? For the search for knowledge, in an incessant search for identification with the Whole.
Since it is not a man’s force, the human being can be seen as the one who has the need for that search, motivated by anxiety and driven by a natural force in search of knowledge.
The control of that anxiety is given by total education, which eliminates anxiety, because it brings Knowledge.
So, the anxiety generated by routine, motivated by the lack of knowledge, makes us go for action, and consequently, education, as we go through experiences that lead us into acquiring knowledge.
What does this mean? Going through evolutionary cycles, from phase to phase, when you then have the opportunity to expand yourself.
That happens through the very vibration of the universal system, that drives the earthling to a super-anxiety and, inexorably, to knowledge.
The exercises and everything else there is in PRÓ-VIDA come as accelerating factors to this condition of being always receptive to receive the natural forces that will always come to propel you into evolution.
Is that search for different kinds of entertainment good or not? The answer can be yes or no. It depends on each person. The repetition of any subject may or may not be routine, as long as one can understand that a statement made for a second time may expand knowledge.
