In this fast-moving digital world, we all have a tendency to get caught up in the hoopla of it all. Digital media has brought the WORLD into the palms of our hands, which makes us THINK we have more power over that world than we really do. For one minute, look down at the palms of your hands, yes your hands, your empty hands. What do you see? Do you see “the world”? No, you see the palms of your hands. Now look around from the palms to the rest of your body, to your feet, the ground below your feet, and then to the room you are in. Wherever your body is, is where you are supposed to be, is where you need to be.
We do not live in the digital world. We do not live in the fantasy world of our minds. We live in our bodies. Where am I right now? I am sitting on my couch, at my laptop and I am writing this and that is where I am supposed to be, doing what I am supposed to be doing and chances are by the time you read this I will be off doing something else somewhere else.
I suggest we all think big, but do small, do whatever is right in front of you now. Enjoy the moment for it is the only moment you can truly exist in.
