P.S. – FYI, I graduated from a famous university with a degree in science, and harbor no ill will towards either it or the system it represents.  LOTS of great things can be learned by studying courses offered at most universities.  However, actually paying an institution to train and condition you to fill a job for a large impersonal corporation whose legally sanctioned motto is ‘greed is good’ – well, that just doesn’t feel quite smoothly aligned with the basic tenets of Love and Life, now does it?  Regardless, no mainstream university, simply by its intrinsic nature (the fundamental relationships involved) — and in many cases despite truly sincere positive intentions — can impart the most important and valuable lessons about our life in this magical Universe.
