Spirituality has a great deal to offer. Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Taoism, etc. take your pick, they all deal with what it is we are looking for. But, how do we know what we are looking for? Many religions offer answers, but are they the answers we not so much want, but NEED?
The post modern, post industrial world is a complex one, and it would seem we are entering a new Dark Ages. With the likes of Desperate Housewives, Kardasians, Big Brother, and Survival on television along with the long list of absolute garbage films made in Hollywood such as Men Who Stare at Goats, it would seem the golden age of the middle 20th century is over. Looking at such a situation we would think that the world, and especially society is gone down the tubes. It would seem that those in the past, Humphry Bogart, Fess Parker, James Arness, and James Garner that stood for the better aspects of humanity are gone.
What can we do? There still is hope. While the entertainment industry is certainly gone to hell, that does not necessarily mean that we have to follow suit. There is an inner voice telling us what is wrong and what is right. It’s just up to us to listen.
