Becoming a Disposable Society

Becoming a Disposable Society, Lori Moreno,

Becoming a Disposable Society

Becoming a Disposable Society – I have found it rather disturbing how fast the World and it’s people have become a Disposable Society. It’s amazing how much trash we generate daily. Part of it is not our fault. By design, the focus has become sophisticated and geared toward one-use-only packaging. We’ve unfortunately become a society based on planned obsolescence and disposability.

If a vacuum breaks, it’s easier and cheaper to throw it away and buy a new one, than fix it. In the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, things were made to last and be taken care of and were also made to be repaired and kept. They had a longevity factor that is sadly non-existent today.

More importantly, this speaks to a much deeper issue. It’s an attitude that has become transferred into the deeper and more sacred parts of our lives. It’s not only become part of our daily lives, but also how we relate to everything including and especially our relationships with other people. I find this disturbing.

I noticed that when people are dating they are always looking over their shoulder for “someone perhaps better”. Why do they always look over their shoulder? What are they looking for? Rather than being in the present moment and looking at the value of the person that they are with, their focus is elsewhere.

Life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.

In some instances, I feel that people rather than dealing with the challenges that confront them in their committed relationship or marriage consider their relationships are disposable. Their issues and spiritual growth take a back seat to their unrealistic expectations. I think many feel that things should be great and smooth sailing. When sickness or illness, financial hardships or when losses occur they think they didn’t sign up or commit to this. These are the scary moments that define and form our character. These are the moments to shine.

Becoming a Disposable Society – We have become this because we are not encouraged to handle or deal with the issues at hand. We easily dispose of trash, friendships, relationships and personal issues thinking that they will go away. After all, we have disposed of them. The reality is, that is huge misnomer. If we are not encouraged to deal with and resolve these issues in our lives we must seek the courage within ourselves to do so. Until we learn to resolve life issues and confront all of those things that we want to readily dispose of (basically run away from), we will be not be free nor will we be authentically human. And that my friends… is what we are called to be: Authentic human beings.

Treat Other’s as Though They are You.

    […] What you give is what you get – In today’s world it seems that giving is a reluctant element of the human personality. Giving is as much a natural part of the human personality as receiving. Isn’t it interesting, though, that we become more human by giving than receiving? By giving, we allow the flow of goodness, grace and love to move through us. It’s time to own your greatness and stop playing small. It’s time to answer our call as human beings and become all that we were meant to be: Authentic human beings. […]

    Sometimes I wonder if I was born in the wrong era. I feel like I have an old soul as I do not care for living in a disposable society nor does it make me comfortable that my kids are growing up in one. Sigh. But I am meeting so many like minded people and I think if enough of us go back to the golden rule we can turn around this negative trend.
