Today’s Sunday NY Times has an excellent article today (see link below) about the dangers of modern technology and what it is doing to the brains of young people today; it is creating distractions that are literally dumbing them down.
Anyone who has read my book The Way Home—Making Heaven on Earth http://www.amazon.com/Way-Home-Madis-Senner/dp/1846942489/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1290367758&sr=8-1 knows that I feel that the distractions caused by technology are much more damaging. Digital technology is disconnecting our young users from Source, Mother Earth. By disconnection I mean that avid texters/youtubers/cell phone users are depriving their subtle bodies of all the essences, energies and consciousness that they need to maintain and flourish. Thereby they are making themselves vulnerable to disease and not elevating their consciousness as much as they should. When the H1N1 scare struck a few years back and hit young people hard, I believe it was not so much that they lacked immunity, but rather that they were disconnected from source. They are very vulnerable.
If you want to survive all the tumult forecast by many from increasing devastation of the environment, to war, to …… Develop your immunity—begin connecting with Mother Earth. Think about all the studies that show the benefits of practicing mindfulness!
