You know what annoygravates me? 
Planned obsolescence.
When I was a kid (Oh gosh, did I just write that?), things were built to last. A Lifetime Warranty was a thing. My clothes were hand-me-downs, and we actually outgrew our shoes long before they fell apart.  In today's world, to maximize consumerism, everything is made to break. Everything, it seems, is considered disposable: from plastic wrap to relationships. Even the human body—the most amazing miracle—is treated like its  expendable; as if we can just go in somewhere and have body parts fixed or replaced as needed. No biggie.

Yes, maintaining the balance between spirit, mind, and the reality of the body. Now, there's a challenge! Thank you for articulating this so well, Shakti.
