In this society, we look to the outside for just about everything: love, entertainment, well-being, self-worth and health. We stare into the TV set instead of speaking of our own dreams, wait for a vacation instead of appreciating each day, watch the clock rather than listen to our hearts. every livelong day we are bombarded with realities from the outside world, seemingly nonstop. Phones, car alarms, pills, coffee, beepers, ads, radios, elevator music, fax machines, gunshots, bright lights, fast cars, airplanes overhead, computer screens, sirens , alcohol, newspapers. One hardly has the opportunity to look inside for love and peace and other nice things like that.
