The Materialism Trap: “You buy furniture. You tell yourself, this is the last sofa I will ever need in my life. Buy the sofa… Then the right set of dishes. Then the perfect bed. The drapes. The rug.

“…feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear…(could be)…very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in… They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are.” Pema Chödrön
