I’m not going to say a lot here, as a couple of articles have come through on my social media feed today and yesterday which sum up my thoughts perfectly. This article is beautiful, not short but thought-provoking;
As I’ve stated before, I use and love social media. However, it’s a tool only and I feel there is a very real danger in overuse and over identification. When we are continually connected and stimulated, we lose the skill of being present and focussed.
“When you surround yourself with moments of solitude and stillness, you become intimately familiar with your environment in a way that forced stimulation doesn’t allow. The world becomes richer, the layers start to peel back, and you see things for what they really are, in all their wholeness, in all their contradictions, and in all their unfamiliarity.”
