Read in April, 1994

The spiritual slumber, that seems to be the condition of the
late 20th century, is caused by the transition from spirituality to technology.

We get our sustenance from technology as opposed to 'the land'
where we would feel a closer spiritual connection.
Previously that was the only choice, the land, God , there were not many
alternatives or time to think of alternatives, as work & survival was a full time job.
Now we have a relatively new notion of free time and science
has led us to believe that a God is not needed to provide for us.
This causes confusion in spiritual choices.
