It’s quite a different world that we are living in indeed! But you won’t find me ranting here about the so called good old days, because if the truth be told THESE are the good old days!
…….and if you attempt to disagree with me I will probably tell you to shut down your computer, pad and smartphone to restart your life.
Think of how much time is spent on our gadgets that connect us to the internet, have you ever wondered to yourself what did you do before this thing called “cyberspace” was made accessible as it is to every average working person in the world?
Didn’t we have less drama in our lives?
Sure, we now have many advantages that we didn’t have before the invasion of technology happened to us in such an undetectable slow-burn fashion. But it seems as though things were so much more wholesome and nutritious for the soul in those long gone tech-free days.
Friendships seemed to last longer back in my youthful days and those cherished unions went so much deeper than they do now. The younger generations who grew up never knowing what it is to do without a cyber connection seem to be so desensitized to truly bonding with their “friends” and seem to be able to toss their friendships aside so easily at the slightest suspicion of an inner violation with will quickly get them labeled as a hater!
We don’t seem to know what is reality anymore. The human touch has been replaced by the stimulation that comes from the high of indulging in all that is pretend.
That cyber-high goes far beyond what is done right in front of the computer. It continues long after the user leaves the scene of the mental infection. The daze that the cyber trip leaves on the human mind is invisible yet felt very much in low levels to remain as a membrane and barrier on the mind in the manner that a condom blocks those involved in sexual intercourse from infected each other of any diseases that could be transmitted during the act.
This mental barrier keeps one from truly seeing reality for what it is. No matter how hard one tries, you just cannot be totally receptive on a sensory level with the outside world after being online focused on things that hit your brain directly. A detoxification is needed and it cannot happen briefly or overnight!
So because of this we have the majority of people walking around in their on daze and they don’t even know it. They are in their own realities. Their own videos. Their lives have been reduced to texting at the red light in their cars and even while they drive merely to see what others are doing in a way that rivals a drug abusers need for a hit.
This escape from our true lives is literally sucking away any chance for us to truly live. Like a baby with a fake rubber nipple in it’s mouth, it will keep on sucking but never receiving the milk that it craves for its sustenance. We think that we are gaining from our cyber experience but in actuality we have traded in the real live social experiences that we can feel for the illusionary sensations of this thing that we call social media that does nothing for us at all except to arrest our normal human development. Nothing more. Nothing less.
So we now have to do what we do when our computer freezes up on us or just glitches out……we have to RESTART IT! Shut it down and start it up all over again. Shut down on the dependence to this artificial life sapping medium called cyberspace and restart our new pure fulfilling lives as God meant it to be!
Yes! and we can STILL enjoy the internet and all of the awesome advantages that it can bring into our lives but only in limited dosages that can edify our existence instead of damning it as it has done to many of use on a wholesale direct level.
Learn to reject the artificial substitute way of life that can never bring you the deepest joys that your Creator intended and embrace the total experience and full range of living that only the total awareness that developing the full person on a mind, body, spirit level can bring.
…….there is no download or app that could EVER bring you this type of deeply saturated happiness bar none!
