Happiness Vs consumerism

Today we live in the world of consumerism. Money is all pervasive. We want to buy everything. can happiness be bought over. this may be a question in everyone mind. happiness is a state of mind and emerges from the self.

Nature has provided us everything for living . earth to lay air to breathe , trees and animals for company and human being , the finest creation of god for company. but we have started hoarding goods purchased from the money and then want more if  even there is no need.

Consumerism is based on that , we think our survival is based on consumerism. if we will not purchase, goods will not be manufactured , if manufacturing will not be there there will not be jobs and we fear our survival. we fight for survival, but what about our happiness . We have sacrificed our happiness at the altar of our survival.
