It seems in today’s world all 5 of these things are prevalent more than they have been in the past.

When you walk down the street no one is talking or looking at each other. They are looking at their phones. When going out alcohol seems to be the focus of the evening. When loving someone there are conditions (they have to be rich, tall, beautiful, etc.) Drugs, especially opiates, are at an epidemic. And everywhere you look someone is taking a selfie instead of looking around and smiling at another human.

Seems to me we need to try to cut down on all these things to be in the ‘here and now’ and to enjoy people and surroundings.

How about trying it for one day?
