Stay Connected


This week’s message is ironically about not using “electronic devices” (Facebook, email, instant messaging, texting, etc.) as your main source of human interaction. It’s ironic because I wanted to announce a new Facebook community page I created. I have to admit, I’ve definitely had the experience of being pulled into the vortex of Facebook, and done my share of mindless googling (sorry if that sounded dirty), yet I combine that on a daily basis with real in-person conversations. Like most technology, the internet and all of its offerings can be a great thing, but it can also distract from living life out in the real world if you let it. All things in moderation, I suppose.

This being said, I just created a new Facebook community page that I have lofty dreams of turning into magazine someday (more on that later). My idea is something like The Sun meets Common Ground, with a touch of Rolling Stone thrown in. I know, a little all over the place, but that’s the point. I want a forum for everyone to express what’s important to them, what they love, and what inspires them. I get excited hearing people talk about what they’re passionate about. It fuels me, and I like to think it fuels everyone else as well.

I’ve been playing around with a website for this idea for a while, but haven’t been able to settle on anything. This led to the next easiest outlet, Facebook. So for all of you on Facebook who’d like a place to showcase your talents, your upcoming events, or simply your thoughts, head on over to [Random] spirit and hit the “like” button. If you’re not on Facebook, maybe it’s a good time to join?

And while we're on the subject of community, wishing everyone a very Happy and Deliciously Healthy Thanksgiving!

From Over There:
“Humankind suffers from the misconception of separateness. To remind the spirit of this interconnectedness it is imperative that a network of community is created. Through this community there will be support throughout the challenges of life, and sharing during times of celebration.

During this current age there are more ways to connect than ever before, yet greater numbers are feeling alone and disconnected from humanity. This illusion is intensified when an individual retreats from true physical human interaction and relies solely on electronic devices for connection. Allowing these methods of communication to be the primary source of contact diminishes an individual’s accountability and creates relationships that are superficial.

Components needed to create greater human intimacy are vocal sounds, eye contact, and the sensation of touch. It is the responsibility of the individual to only use electronic devices as additional tools to enrich communication and to build a stronger community, not as a substitute for personal interaction.”
