Your shiny electronic thing

Your shiny little electronic thing may be connected to a universe of information – but it is limited. It has no heart, no soul, no emotion, no discernment for what really counts, what matters, what meaning lies beneath the incessant cranking out of “content”- more words and images each day.

What are you missing?

Do not allow your shiny hand held smart – but not wise devices – to take over your lives, to substitute for real connection, true feeling, heart to heart conversation.

Do not let them babysit your children or substitute teach in place of a real human being with a heart, wisdom, emotions, kindness and compassion.

These sleek little objects take you from knowledge of the feelings in your body and tells you what to think, what to pay attention to, who is trending, who is on top, who matters, who you should like.

All those shiny images and catchy words take precious moments from your life. Are they worth it?

These are moments you could cuddle your beloved child, play with your pet, climb a tree, lie in a hammock in the shade, have a heart to heart talk with your best friend.

I know you will say it is useful, important, helpful. Yes it is a tool and perhaps a toy, yet you make a mistake when you allow it to rule your lives.

No matter how sophisticated your shiny little expensive electronic thing, it will never replace your heart, soul, and feeling which make you human!
