I’d agree, Evan! I wonder how often that dissatisfaction is actually interpreted as a lacking or a feeling of missing something. The logical answer to a feeling of lacking wouldn’t be to look inward, but rather look outward for something to fill the hole.

When you then add to the fact that society and the media is telling us, over and over, that what we need is right here — in this object and that object, in this pill and that pill — it’s easy to see why consumerism is a popular as it is! Looking inward is the answer. Looking towards the source of that feeling of lacking and disconnection, that’s how we’ll discover what we’re looking for.
