then increasing its speed. ~Gandhi
There is more to life than increasing its speed. In our efforts to become more efficiently connected, we have lost touch with the most vital connection of all – to our innermost selves. And when that is lost, so is our connection to the Divine Source that is our power and supply. And you think you’re up a creek when you forgot to charge your smart phone!
We charge our smart phones so we can have meaningful, important conversations… so we can Google some answers to our questions… so we can navigate where we are going. Hmmmmmm. Sounds more than a little familiar.
Our technology is valuable and certainly has its place. But just for one hour per day, heck, 30 minutes, (I’ll even take 5 if that’s where you’re at) let’s go OLD SCHOOL. Put your phone on “airplane mode,” or turn it off, and plug into your BREATH. That’s where you recharge. Have a meaningful conversation with yourself. Ask some burning questions. Listen for a response. Get some input on where you are going and how to get there. But before you can know where you are going, it helps to know where you ARE, right?
You are right here. Breathe. Be with yourself. Connect. And from that profound experience, you will find a deeper, more authentic connection to your daily activities and relationships.
Are you willing to try? Make a commitment to yourself – something reasonable and sustainable, and let me know how it goes.
