New Year, New Views

This year,

let’s replace consumerism

with a generalized version

of Buddhism.

Instead of having commercials screaming at people to buy products,

let’s have breaks between television shows of

flowing streams,

condors flying,

salamanders playing in the water, or somebody ringing a bell for three minutes.

There could be billboards that say things like,

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think.

When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”

or,

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may.

We ourselves must walk the path.”

Just a thought.

Happy New You.

Mi’iwi ❤
