From an online men’s spirituality group at

During a radio interview recently, the guest speaker quipped, “We are trying to find God at the Gap”.

She was referring to idea that the American public seems to be trying to find spirituality through buying things.

To be honest, I have certainly felt uplifted and good after buying something for myself, though I didn’t think it was godlike.

If anything it was more druglike. In my personal religious practice it is a good thing to give up these desires.

How do you deal with the unending desire for stuff?

How does it reflect in your relationships and daily life?
