How has comfort become more important than ever in today’s world? Comfort, and having it with modern technology, today gives creature comforts a whole new meaning.
Let us take a look at the meaning of creature comforts in today’s Webster Dictionary-1. a state of physical ease and strain and and freedom from pain or constraint. 2. things that contribute to physical ease and well-being. 3. Prosperity and the pleasant lifestyle secured by it.
Daily Wisdom Word Definition-1. those things in our life making everything easier and less troublesome.
Comfort, has become more important than ever in today’s world. The coined term, “user friendly”, means our comfort in using any device or object. Comfort, emotionally, from others, unfortunately it seems is needed less. Why do I state this?
It seems that everyone is receiving comfort from themselves, because they are now, more than ever, receiving it from their cell phones, computers, modern conveniences, making financial comfort to buy these things more important than ever. We, including myself, find ourselves self-absorbed in the comforts involved in our careers as well. If we work behind a desk, We have office massage chairs, or thickly padded cushion like chairs. Compared to 20 years ago, when comfort was appreciated, but not sought out, Comfort today is the number one reason people will purchase one brand or type of item over another.
How does this tie into comfort from others? Because we are self-comforting ourselves, it seems we need others less. I don’t view this as a positive thing, because of what we have replaced comfort we get and give to others, necessarily a positive thing. I feel people getting and giving comfort to others is more important than anything in this world because God created us and our emotions and feelings. The comfort we seek today, comes from creations that are man-made.
This is simply my opinion, but it does seem to be supported by the facts in the world today. We will buy a car because its comfortable and has more gadgets to make us feel more comfortable, over one that has less. We would choose to wait and have our car, for example, until these comforts could be available.
When we focus on “things” in life, other people are less significant, and that is not a positive thing. If all the comforts in todays’s world but the basics were taken away, we would have a stronger family unit, stronger friendships, and be less dependent on these creature comforts seeking human comfort instead.
Us needing one another, should be the most important comfortable thing in this world, besides God, because family and love and relationships are tied to needing one another. This is why a mother loves her baby so much, and vice-versa. making it the most powerful bonding experience in this universe. We need “things” to be as comfortable as possible, especially our cell phones and devices and this does either directly or indirectly affect how much we need others, because we are soothing ourselves.
Comfort, should come from God, first, and people second, again just my opinion I wanted to share with you. I ideally, wish I could say, I was living my belief system, but find myself the same as everyone else, with less time to listen to someone talking to me when I am focused so deeply in my cellphone, or listening with my headset the music it provides, games, ETC. Even though this goes against my core beliefs and values.
I hope this Post has given you food for thought, because as I write it, I find myself renewing my commitment to others and their needs, first. Thanks so much for reading daily wisdom words today, and have a beautiful and blessed day!
