"Sometimes you have to disconnect to stay connected. Remember the old days when you had eye contact during a conversation? When everyone wasn't looking down at a device in their hands? We've become so focused on that tiny screen that we forget the big picture, the people right in front of us."—Regina Brett
Hello fellow Earthlings,
I'm unplugging today from Facebook. I think I have a mild addiction and I want to unplug for about one month. I will post here about my experiences NOT ON IT...(it can be like a drug, right?) I hope to post weekly.
I have so much to do today and I spent a great deal of time scrolling through Facebook pages and clicking on links, etc. today.
LOL, ROFL, WTF....
Has this become our lives????
What if Facebook disappeared? What if the world wide web STOPPED WORKING?
What would happen to us all?
First, I'm sure, there would be widespread panic. "Oh, no, NO SERVICE....I can't get in touch with: my mom, sister, boyfriend, husband, mother-in-law..."
In touch with....get in touch with? Hmmmm....are we really IN TOUCH?
Are we really tasting, smelling, hearing, feeling, seeing, LIVING our lives or is it all in this screen of ours?
Internet Connection....my internet connection is DOWN!
Hmmm... when I stop connecting through this box, suddenly I can hear the birds, I see the cherry blossom tree in full bloom outside my house, I feel my bare feet on the cool wooden floor, I taste my hot tea....earthy, floral, orange....I smell the lilies on my dining room table.
I'm connected to this earth through my senses and through my senses I'm also connected to YOU and everyone.
And there is a sixth sense...intuition. When I ground and connect through all my senses, I feel what I really need to DO! It's always there and available.
This is the REAL world wide web, dear earthlings....
We are missing out on DIVINE experiences as we check out of our senses and check into technology.
Turn it off....just for awhile....and TUNE IN....what do you notice?
