Pushing Air Out of the Way

There are times in life (if not always…) when we should just go with the flow. In this short clip from a short while back from Building 43 the focus is on Solar Energy driven cars. I was intrigued by a sentence in the middle of the clip at marker 1:55 in. The line? “60% to 80% of the energy of a car is used to push air out of the way”

I find this line most intriguing. Is it not true that we seem to spend so much time and energy just “pushing air out of the way”?I believe it comes down to simply making the right decisions. Living a life of our higher selves. Once we are in line with the “truth”, that is the truth of our own integral life. Then and only then will we stop pushing air. Then and only then can our energy follow the Pareto Principal, or the 80/20 rule, in a more positive way and rather than spending 80% of our energy pushing air the way we spent 80% of our energy making progress in the most efficient way possible. Here is the clip:
