I think of materialism, and how materialism and a materialistic society helps to destroy the
resources and splendor of Mother Earth. This goes from having animal products of furs, bones,
and animal parts to trees & cutting down of the environment. It all ties together. Materialism to
me is (1). Greed, conscious or unconscious. (2). We as a species, need stimulation. This means
new knowledge, new sports, new clothes, new stimulation. This entails getting new products,
which entails taking it from the environment. It gives an initial "fix," but it is only temporary.
Meanwhile, it is like a drug addiction. It has to be constantly replenished, re-stocked, to get
re-stimulated. It also piles up. We have to then clean and care for our possessions, which
ultimately, seemingly possess us. What if we as a society, chose joint shared (1). new experiences,
versus new possessions? What if we chose creating and getting in tune with our inner nature,
our inner reality?

maybe i should just make another deposit here.
may also be that non-attachment has quite a different meaning in another cultural context.
adjusting the rear view mirrors, perhaps.

See the World Anew

Your creative muse could be on fire today, making it easier for you to think outside the box. Being able to see a different way of doing the same thing might spark in you a desire to share your ideas with others. This may be a good time to further enhance and develop your ability to approach things differently. This way, your novel ideas become an integral part of your life by retraining your mind to view the world in a different light. A simple way to accomplish this is to do things that are different from your habitual way, such as using your nondominant hand instead of your dominant hand or taking an alternate route to work today. Altering your routine in some way can create new connections in your mind, which can make it easier to come up with imaginative and original ideas.

Making an effort to change the way we think and exist in the world infuses our ideas with greater creativity. If we go about our everyday habits in the usual way we can easily become mired in the same thoughts and approach to our lives. Changing even one small part of our lives, however, frees us from the limitations that bind us and paves the way for a more open, receptive, and innovative way of seeing things. Working to retrain your mind today will help you look at the world with fresh eyes and transform your ideas into inspired works of creativity.
