We are living in a world where people are tired of feeling separate and anxious. Religion and traditional beliefs systems are in decline. People are discovering new ways to raise their own self esteem and awareness. Having all the so called 'trappings of success' just isn't enough to sustain your soul.. those trapped in materialistic superficial worlds are suffering from depression and finding it hard to lift themselves out of bed each day. Shopping does not fill the void. We all need something more substantial. It's like eating a packet of crisps when you need a quality 3 course meal... (they taste alright, but you're still starving afterwards).
I checked out of that materialistic motel years ago. Every time I stepped outside, people would be asking me, what car I was driving, or how much money I was earning. It made my stomach churn and I felt under pressure to be 'superficially successful'. I didn't want to be a part of it anymore, it was exhausting.
I just wanted someone to ask me... how I was feeling, not how many holidays I had been on. I really detest all these egotistical posts I see on social media. It's just not healthy for anyone to be that obsessive about themselves, plus its exhausting posting crap about yourself every day, not to mention boring.
I say, go out their and live your life, stop sitting behind your computer at home, pretending to have a great life. It is easy to get into spirituality and mindfulness once you realise, the majority of information you receive via the mainstream media, is utter garbage that is designed to distract you from realising your full potential. No one can reach their full potential if they are caught up in this narcissistic fishing net.
Often social media leaves people feeling more anxious than they where to begin with. I would rather spend time with my family or read a book than post what I had for dinner that evening. If you want to use social media fine. But don't let it use you. Where is all that information going? Who are you building this online profile for? Where is your money for doing all this work, for these huge corporations?
My advice is be careful and don't spend too much time in the matrix, always leave one foot out, just so you can feel the fresh air on your big toe…its the little things that matter and the little things always make us happy.
