Thoughts for the new year

Rapine, avarice, expense, This is idolatry; and these we adore; Plain living and high thinking are no more.  – William Wordsworth

 

How well said. And so true in all its simplicity. We are turning into machines on auto-pilot and consumerism is our new religion. We haste through our lives without getting in touch with our thoughts, emotions and dreams. It’s all about keeping up appearances, being successful and showing off. I choose to step off that train. I want to engage in what really matters. So in 2012 I want to figure out what that means for me.
