Depth?

The pace of today's technology-driven life is rapidly accelerating, bringing with it ever-increasing levels of distraction, time-poverty, anxiety & unhappiness, despite an overabundance of material possessions for many in the "1st world".

Could the basic cause of our discontent be that fewer & fewer seem to understand, value, & prioritize quality over quantity, substance over flash, depth over speed, gravitas over image, and now sadly, truth over lies.

At some level, don't most of us know better?

"We must go down to the very foundations of life. For any merely superficial ordering of life that leaves its deepest needs unsatisfied is as ineffectual as if no attempt at order had ever been made ..." I Ching, Hexagram #34 "The Well" (circa 2500 BC)

"For all our rootedness in a physical body, we humans are spiritual creatures. As the psychiatrist Thomas Hora astutely pointed out, 'all problems are psychological, but all solutions are spiritual.'" Gabor Mate MD
