Make Peace - Be Content

This is certainly a time of goodwill and sharing. Instead of running around in a manic state trying to buy loads of stuff no one needs, perhaps we should just stop.

Stop, and give ourselves the gift of enough down time to pause and consider what we are doing, and what our true priorities are.

When we are at peace with ourselves, we can be at peace with others, and with what we have.

Then we can all be content.

    I killed my tv some years ago. Now I realize that that is what was making me want things. I wanted to live in a real house, not an old trailer (Oh, the shame). I wanted lots of friends even tho people drove me nuts. I wanted to be like those good-looking energetic dancing people I saw in a Starbucks ad. I even wanted anti-depressants because, since I wasn't happy happy all the time, I must have been depressed. Tv convinces people of a fake, impossible world. It causes strife and misery. It locks the door to peace, in fact, it hides the door, at least the real door. Tv is full of fake peace doors. -Old Woman

    1. Old Woman, Well said. You speak the truth. We have to escape ubiquitous advertising, or transcend it, in order to find out what we really want. Usually what we find is that we only desire peace and simplicity.

      In Ernest Callenbach's 70s utopian novel "Ecotopia" people were changing their world after being “literally sick of bad air, chemicalized food, and lunatic advertising". In the story advertising was strictly controlled and only FACTS were allowed. Also, no appeals to Drs in white lab coats, and using adjectives was banned.
