After something that Chad said the other day, I’ve been thinking. I have a pretty Non-Buddhist lifestyle for someone who claims “that Buddhism makes the most sense to me.” I will explain.
For someone that “hates” consumerism, I am a huge consumer. I am very materialistic. Want want want, buy buy buy. Luckily I am broke, otherwise I could see it being a lot worse. This does not stop me from obsessing over gizmos and gadgets. I fear that this is a slippery slope that I need to put an end to ASAP. I have seen where it can lead, and I don’t like it. I came across this article today that I found helpful, and on point. It even quotes Dharma Bums.
This lead me to this article which I also found helpful.
