The Dalai Lama teaches that material goods themselves are not a problem but that the real issue is our delusion that satisfaction can arise from gratifying our desires. Western society teaches us to seek satisfaction and even status through material things. We can’t help but fall into it’s clutches. I believe that God/Universe wants us to live abundantly, but I wonder, how do we live life fully without forming attachment to abundance?
