Our warm thanks to Tony Shin for the thought-provoking infographic below.
What kind of culture is compatible with instant gratification? Certainly not one that nurtures spirituality, because a spiritual life requires being still sometimes. Or one that promotes creativity, because prolonged focus and practice are needed for mastery over one’s talents.
In fact a culture of instant gratification is a culture founded on consumerism. The continuous intake of junk food, entertainment, online information, and even book information, appears harmless enough, although it dulls the creative impulse. The habits of our neighbors aren’t our business we tell ourselves, as more and more, all around us, fame gets achieved, not from any accomplishment but by the destruction of the famous or infamous destruction.
