Making, mending, sharing and gifts - or consumerism

Making, mending, sharing and gifts
or
consumerism


If you borrow a vast amount of money, to buy a large,
glossy, powerful car, you are likely to feel happier
for a few months.

Then feel no different to when you drove your old car.
Then realise what misery debt creates.

If you make or mend anything, no matter how small,
it could be decorative or practical - it will give
you, or the recipient, pleasure for as long as it lasts ...
then you can mend it again!

The sooner we learn this the less vulnerable we are to
the traps perpetrated by
#PathologicalWealth and #advertising.

consumerism devours the consumer, sooner or later

#SelfKnowledge leading to #wholeness.

Consider selective editing of the bible:

The (rejected) Gospel of Philip "The companion of the saviour is Mary Magdalene. Christ loved her more than all the disciples and used to kiss her often on the mouth."
