the space we’ve built between ourselves was filled by mass media. you see now how they’ve used that against you/me? it is so very easy to divide a culture (or society), even within the home. how is it then we’re surprised when the dysfunctional system that is barely holding it together continues to disappoint? on some level, we live in some state of desperation and anxiety, unless we’re diligent enough in our efforts to “unplug” as it were, from the noise. we hate how it works, but we hate the idea of taking responsibility for and of it, and nevermind putting heads together and talking about it… who’s got the time?
social media isn’t much of a connection to anyone – not really. chats, hangouts, voice, video, and such are great at keeping us safe, at arm’s length, but still able to simply “log off”. yet, as we transition past mere superficial “friendship” perhaps we remember the value of real conversation, real communication, real leadership, real substance… perhaps it is time.
if anything, our modern, evolving internet, social media, and information sharing is proof that the deeper web we wove even before we took any sort of breath is emerging. you can’t deny it. more and more we share, more and more we discover how integral we are to each other, regardless of pretend lines on maps, or distorted globes.
we can afford ourselves the benefits of touching the spirit of what we are deep down. we deserve at least that much…
love your life,
