This society generates all sorts of toxic patterns, which are reflected in the operations of the mind and senses in words and thoughts, and in individual character.
So it’s safe to predict that when you track out your feelings, you will discover various negativities.
Most people recognize that this culture stimulates more and more cravings—it operates on that basis and couldn’t really function otherwise.
You can see it most easily with drugs and other forms of addiction, but in fact the same dynamic operates in countless other ways.
Growing up in this society, we learn to want more goods and services, better vacations, more exciting news, more approval from others.
It never stops.
The craving itself becomes toxic—even if what we want seems harmless enough, the craving causes us harm at the deepest level.
We become slave to our own desires.
