Quote by the Dalai Lama: People exist to be loved; objects exist to be used. The world is in chaos because these things are the other way round.

Our Obsession for Things

When the love of things takes precedence over all else then a society is in trouble.  With materialism and consumerism running rampant it looks like we are in deep trouble.  Our societies fixation on stuff as the means to happiness and fulfillment is almost perverse.  Our souls yearn for meaningful and fun EXPEREINCES.  They came here to play and grow — to live, love, laugh, and learn.  The adoration of possesions over experiences, people, connection, and meaning makes no sense to our souls — for they know that you can't take any of the stuff with you — that all that comes with you is what was in your heart.
