Slave to our desires

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.
