Look deeply into the Internet.
Swim across time and space…
We can see our earth to which we root
Or to go to the ends of the universe
We can see the connection of the stars to us.
We can connect back to our innocence.
With blogs, social media, virtual realities, news, stories, the reaching out of our presence… It’s possible to dive into and swim so deeply into that pool of data that we avoid living as the fuller option of connecting us to the reality that the data represents. To swim so deeply to take all that data and fill the emptiness we feel inside that we forget to live.
And now back to the mirror: the Internet.
It feels easy to bypass our own actions, use this source of information to find, refine and define ourselves: In a Wiki-reality sort of manner.
We can fly, and we should use the tools we can…but never mistake the tools for the experience *of actively living life*.
In being human, only living fills that empty space that drives each one of us onward to explore.
We are living in amazing times. But our times will challenge us, push us and test us deeply. Don’t let your empty space be filled and then defined by fear.
As we face the challenges ahead, don’t forget you are interconnected with so much more. That we are actually greater than the challenges, we face. Don’t lose hope, strive to live simply but with compassion. Working it out as how to best live together on a world facing challenges. Living with each other, our world and our challenges. Helping each other live through our challenges ahead.
The path ahead isn’t about endings; it’s simply about being brave enough to face our challenges and then continue to push ahead by living in a manner we will call graceful in retrospect.
Challenge the times with how you live!
