This is Water


Commencement speeches are awe-inspiring, soar you to the highest heights and create a mystical idea of what "life after" is all about. I just saw this one and it is the greatest. It talks about real, everyday life and the freedom of real education.

Instead of life after (college), it talks about life before death: "It is about the Real value of a real education which has(almost) nothing to do with knowledge, and everything to do with simple awareness. Awareness of what is so real and essential,  so hidden in plain site all around us, all the time that we have to remind ourselves, over and over, this is water. This is water."
