I will always remember some words offered to me as a child. My parents told me to ‘do things in moderation, keep learning and you will live to be a ripe old age.’ Over the past 10 – 12 years, I am finally getting what those words really mean. I am one who believes that if I eat relatively healthy, get some exercise, proper sleep, I don’t overdue my vises and if I keep expanding who I am; I will be on this physical plain for many years to come.
I hear a few of you saying, where is Wayne going with all this?
Let me speak to you for a bit about some of today’s technologies, more so the little magic box that most of us in the civilized world carries around with them. Yes, I am referring to the magical mysteries of the cell phone. During the past few years, it has become a marvel of technology for all users. Let me just give you a few of the basics of what my phone/mini computer can do. Yes, it is a phone that I can call people with, it has a camera and a pretty darn good one, video yes, GPS check, texting for sure dude, music, calendar, reminders, appointments, internet, gaming, a ton of storage. There are millions of apps I can get, I can use social media of any variety, get a map to anywhere and have the phone talk me to my destination. Damn, I can even ask my phone a question and it will give me an answer or take me to a page that has the answer.
What I am attempting to get across here is simply that the cell phone makers have incorporated or integrated what people desire in their fast-paced lives. We as humans have accepted this as part of us. We will continue to grow and learn with most new technologies to benefit our life. This is who most people are or have become.
Now here is my question to all you readers, what are you doing with yourself to learn and grow, to become a greater person in life? I do not mean a guru of technology or the fastest cell in the west. What I am referring to is, like the cell phone makers, how are you integrating yourself in life?
I can only speak for myself on some of the stuff I do. I love to listen to, read about and or experience many facets of learning whether it is old Einstein material or the latest new guru talking about their philosophies. It does not matter if some it is old rehashed ideas or some brand new spanking thought, I receive all information with great thanks. I take this information, mull it around and maybe even play with it for a bit to see if I can bring it into what I call my personal sandbox.
The wonderful thing is that my sandbox just keeps growing and growing to the point that my personal learning is what my life has become.
Don’t get me wrong, I can still keep up with most advances in the techno world but what kid does not these days? LOL
I am finding out so much about spirituality, quantum physics, energies, healing, meeting and connecting with others of like mind. I now understand more about inner peace, love, my emotions and how they play a key role in my life. The list goes on in many directions and never seems to end.
I have lived in the fast lane of life and abused my body beyond belief but the adventure I am now on is far more satisfying to me than any other event I have already experienced.
To me it is not just about the smiles I bestow upon others but the smiles I bring unto me.
What I am truly wishing to convey to you here, is that I have a need to incorporate many things into my life. I am not speaking just technology but finding out more about me through new knowledge. In doing so, my desire is that other folks will take a little piece from my sandbox and take it into theirs to play with for a bit of time.
Integration of all facets of my life will give me my greatest expansion of my physical being.
Peace and Love Wayne
