It’s become a terrible disease, sitting for hours staring at the computer. The digital age has caused deterioration of digits. Every joint in your body is a digit, and few use them anymore.
Instead of running and gardening and participating in outdoor activity, most folks click the keys and push the mouse around for hours on end. Life’s a crazy ride; sitting immobile at the computer is a copout.
Computer screens are pieces of glass that separate human beings from life. When at the computer, you don’t touch life, you type “about life” and email it to others.
We are forgetting how to move to create things. Immobile creation is mental masturbation. Stuff that comes from the head is dead, unless it inspires physical action.
Go to a rock concert and watch the musicians play their songs – great example of head-trips transformed into physical manifestation. We love it; that’s why so many flock to watch them perform.
What melody is yearning to express through you?
Step away from the screen; step back into life.
Give more time to doing things that validate your existence in the world. Take a walk. Plant a garden. Take up mountain climbing. Go ballroom dancing. Something!
Life’s an exciting ocean, but you’ve got to go through the motion if you plan to sail the high seas and enjoy the adventure.
Life’s a melody – sing it loud like no one’s watching.
Life’s a challenge – plunge into life, head first, knowing you’re bigger than any mountain.
Life’s a dream – transmute that imaginal act into actual fact.
“Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to experience.” What Kierkegaard’s saying – can you feel it? When you feel it, you real it – you make life real in your experience. And you can’t feel it, if in front of a computer you just sit and tweet quotes like that one.
Love life; it will love you back.
Love your computer, you’ll suffer an anxiety attack.
