If it seems like it is over whelming, when the brain is racing and there seems to be an internal battle between the yearning for calm and rest and what feels like an out of control mental gymnastics competition, there is an open opportunity for magic.
Taking a step back, expanding our awareness and looking at the evolution of communication and the way in which we live our lives, there is a path with clear markers that lead straight to why we are where we are.
Before television and radio, options for mental stimulation were of a more paced and balanced nature.
Reading and writing lead the charge keeping the minds work at an organic pace.
Radio and television brought about the jelly brain, leaving no cooperation or partnership for the brain.
Now we could just shut off and have information chosen by a, key word, “programmer” pumped into our experience without any filter.
The brain would lay dormant becoming weak and prone to images and sounds that would create belief systems full of illusion and plant fresh seeds for compulsive consumerism and the degradation of personal self esteem.
While millions watched images of what people “should” look and act like, judgment of the self took on a whole new meaning.
Today we have the information super highway. We click and click and choose and click. images flash before our eyes scrambling the thought process at break neck speed. the average someone spends on a page is barley enough to even begin to know what is being shared.
This constant flow of information is to many, our life blood. it has shaped our world, the way we share, grow and are seen. it also needs to be respected.
Take a couple days every week away from your computer screen.
The new kill your tv is kill your search engine.
So much to reflect on.
So much beauty in this world…
