I cannot wrap my mind around the sale of happiness. It's everywhere. It's in our constitution - the pursuit of happiness. What is striking to me, is that we do not sell or market/promote our right to feel safe, to face our emotional pain without scrunity, judgment, and shame, and its the excruitiating amount of time it takes for human evolution to teach those that seem weaker, to fight back. Instead we are lured into ""pleasure"". Porn, shopping, alcohol, cigarettes, love, gambling, consumption of food, materialism, avoidance of anything to do with mental health, prescription drugs, sex, workalholism, violence. On and on.
We are so busy surviving, thriving that we do not have, or make the time, to stop - and face reality. Lifes not a Disney Movie or a cutsey comedic love story. Even behind the scenes of Hollywood, we have drugs, violent crime, abuse.
I talk about my own addiction, and my OCD tendencies toward "cleaning", and strong yearnings for "angels" and other healing modalities that can also be used to avoid, run away from and for some to "survive".
