A quick note to ponder in your free time. I saw an ad on my computer today talking about a new app that alerts you to the best deals in shopping to save money and time. I think it is fair to say since television has been getting a bum rap by so many people who no longer choose to watch its plethora of lies, that our savvy corporate world has now stepped in to make cellphones be the new TV’s to control us. Everything they do is often so subtle we don’t even realize what they are doing, but that slowly is changing thank God. They are creating apps now for everything, creating a fantasy life at our fingertips. Why not have that shopping alert app on our phone so now we can buy even more stuff we don’t really need? REAL life is not at your fingertips! You have to interact with it, be aware of it or big trouble lays ahead. The distraction and intrusion into people’s lives by cellphones has become dangerous at this point, the same way television was. They entertain us and do everything for us so we can live our autopilot lives totally unaware of life around us in the world.
This distraction is what got us to where we are now, in a very bad place with power standing over us making laws that restrict us from living the lives we choose. First it was colorful and fun cellphone covers and ringtones that grabbed everyone’s attention and dragged them in. Now we have apps to put on the phones to live our lives for us essentially. It is time we open our eyes and see we are being dragged into states of non-living again by their offers. If one is already asleep they are oblivious to these tactics and they get sucked in even deeper. Stay awake to what they are doing and quite frankly disconnect with technology as best you can and reconnect with real living. Maybe then we can save our world. It is all about simplicity and remaining connected. I’ve never owned a cellphone and I’m really glad I never did. One less addiction to overcome. The internet is hard enough.
Blessings to us all,
