There seems to be a big dichotomy in our society between materialism and spiritualism.

We seem to be obsessed with acquiring a lot of “stuff” in order to make ourselves happy. Just think of the buying frenzy that happens every year at Christmas!

Another illustration of this is the only seemingly facetious remark, “He who dies with the most toys (cars, boats, motorcycles, etc.) wins.”

Does the road to happiness really lie along the path of materialism?
