We consume too much. We have lost our ability to do things in moderation. We continue to enslave ourselves in the name of consuming more stuff. It has to stop.
This isn’t a matter of over consumption of natural resources. It is about losing a piece of our humanness. We are more focused on consuming than creating. This imbalance is making us emotionally, physically and spiritually miserable.
There are two steps to restoring balance.
- Start creating. That’s right. Make stuff.
- Support other creators. Give them moral support and financial support. Stop consuming faceless/nameless stuff and start valuing the relationships of creators.
