The Desert of the World of Matter
Most people in the world today strive to accumulate
things. This search is a vain one, according to the
teachings of religious masters like Buddha and Jesus,
who advocated spiritual detachment.
The Existentialist philosophers also bemoan the
fruitlessness of worldly things. But usually they arrive
at a form of despair, which gives them no comfort.
The image above is a loose interpretation of religious
icons from Russia, showing a crouching man seeking
water in a dry streambed in the desert.
