Entertainment is a state of being. When we become deeply absorbed in something in a passive way without exerting controlling effort, this is entertainment which is synonymous with entrainment. The passive part matters, being receptive. It takes intention to be receptive. When you get receptive, you give over your ideo-motor response to whatever it is you have focused your attention on.
By our choice of entertainment, we choose our every activity. We chose our world by choosing the ideas we will fill it with. We can choose based on self-awareness and seeking, or we can have our entertainment chosen for us. You will ultimately build a collection of entertainments, and these will form a sort of spiritual genetic code that you will expend your energy through.
“We aren’t in an information age, we are in an entertainment age.” Anthony Robbins (American advisor to leaders)
“Nothing is so intolerable to man as being fully at rest, without a passion, without business, without entertainment, without care.” Blaise Pascal (French Mathematician, Philosopher and Physicist, 1623-1662)
