Weekly Homework for the Students of the Way for June 25th, 2011

Last week's homework went pretty well!  Let's get even more this week!

We often find ourselves in places where we see drama and we have an option of entering it or simply observing it.  The problem is, with only observation, no one in the drama can learn anything.  The solution is to understand just the right thing to do to help the participants learn how silly or misguided or cruel their actions are.  This will be discussed in following weeks, but for now, just watch this movie.  Yes, it means you have to spend money, but trust me, it's worth it.  This is one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen.

 "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring"  is a Korean film about this kind of situation and how one of the way can see just what to do and how to do it to solve the problem without really being involved.

Please, buy a copy (they are pretty cheap for a movie that will likely be added to your favorites list) and remember to write what you thought here.  Feel free to watch it in groups or alone.  Either way, discuss it here.   (Also, use this link to buy it, it's the cheapest I've found.)
