Charles Eisenstein: We Are Here To Heal, Not Harm

 Image result for Charles Eisenstein quotes with pictures

We have bigger houses but smaller families; 
more conveniences, but less time; 
We have more degrees, but less sense; 
more knowledge, but less judgment; 
more experts, but more problems; 
more medicines, but less healthiness; 
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, 
but have trouble crossing the street to meet 
the new neighbor. 
We’ve built more computers to hold more 
information to produce more copies than ever, 
but have less communications; 
We have become long on quantity, 
but short on quality. 
These times are times of fast foods; 
but slow digestion; 
Tall man but short character; 
Steep profits but shallow relationships. 
It is time when there is much in the window, 
but nothing in the room.
