 from a comment thread about the national debt…

Living on credit! But who IS really LIVING at all? We all might as well BE the federal, or for that matter, the WORLD DEFICIT, because most of us ARE “LIVING” on “FUMES” OF life,anyway. IMHO, even the 1% are hardly alive, emotionally. Look at any young child, (very young, thst is,Honey Boo Boo is old before her time) if you want to see what real life is, before spirit crushing ego and drama quality of life issues takes all, or most real life away.Capitalism CON SUMES our life in place of us having a life at all. All the resources in the world lack the ability to PURCHASE the spirit of ego and drama free play of the child, and until we all “become like little children” we will be un-alive, so it makes little difference if we are all unalive with or without debt.

that’s one pole of the polarity – paradoxically, perhaps poetically, we have free choice (as holocaust survivor victor frankl says in “man’s search for meaning”) — we have the choice how to respond. i choose to surrender ego and sacrifice drama, practice stillness and accept inner peace. i am content with what i have – feel no need to consume to avoid any feeling of loss and i embrace the void for therein i find all possibilities.. .
