Stuff is neat.
 I don't live in a place where whole families have to share one bed or you have to walk miles to get to a clean water source. Does that hinder me from being able to connect to myself and the universe? No, I don't think so. No matter how many tvs you have in your house you are still a part of "all this". It just may be hard to tap into a spiritual state when you have your head full of thoughts about clothes, car payments, the new iphone, etc... I do think you can lose sight of yourself and what is important when you start trying to fill the holes in your life with stuff. Conversely, I think material things can help you to get in touch with life, the universe and everything. Just the other day I found an old snow globe when I was cleaning and suddenly I was reeling back in time to when my mother gave it to me and the sweet sensations of nostalgia kept me giddy all day. I'm an artist and I use material things to both inspire and make art and without it my life would really not be complete.
 
However, there was a time when I learned my lesson the hard way when it came to spending money wisely. But that is another story  Tongue

It's like you guys said, balance!
