Meditative Monday: Getting Lost

entangled plants,
There are two over-arching things that people truly want:

Good health

Supportive community

Again and again, I've seen that these are the things that really matter to us.

But our society is lost. We are lost. We think comfort, consumption, individualism, and continual action make us happy.

They don't. They are making people increasingly sick and disconnected.

Then people come to the spiritual path hoping to feel better while still clinging to comfort-seeking, consumption ideas, and the rest. And they get lost here.

Right when they could be finally finding themselves.

There is a way out, but it means sincerely looking at ourselves and who we think we are.
