If you think of how we have ruined this planet with our incredible greed, evil and stupidity, you will feel depressed. The holocaust, the gulag, the slave trade, the inquisition trials… It is terrible to think of it. So don’t. Don’t think of it. Put your attention somewhere else. On love, maybe, or something fun. Become like a child. Don’t worry. Be happy. Be optimistic. Positive thinking can do the trick. Bring in the clowns. Or train your mind like you train a dog. Teach him to sit, teach him to avoid shit and, for Christ’s sake, teach him not to eat it. If you happen to see an ugly street fight, just walk away and pretend you didn’t see it. Try to become innocent again. Try to become like an idiot: I don’t see anything, I don’t hear anything. I don’t say anything. You have to have an strategy.
