Just got back from a walk along the beach with a
couple clients. While trapsing across the sand and
shells – and avoiding the jelly fish that are in the
shallow waters, I explained to them the importance
of “taking a pause” from technology.
As great as our computers, cell phones and other
gadgets are – I believe they can also be a curse.
People today are MORE mesmerized by their gadgets
than anything else. And with this techno-hypnosis comes
amnesia for WHO and WHAT created the technology.
People created these gadgets with the power of thought.
But those who use the gadgets forget that YOU are the
owner of the greatest Super Computer in the Universe.
YOU are both broadcasting and receiving station. YOU
are the one who creates – not the other way around.
In my seminars I don’t allow any techno gadgets of
any kind. At first, the techno-addicts are irritated.
But, if they’re open, they soon realize that I’m doing
them a favor.
Some cannot stand it so they try to sit in the back row with a
Blackberry, or some other gadget on their lap, scrolling
emails when they could be listening to the message. Even
if the person gets away with it, which is only temporary, what
has he gained?
I carry a cell phone with me much of the time – yet I rarely
answer it unless it is family or someone I am expecting a
call from. I have no problem pausing and letting the thing
ring without answering. Doesn’t bother me if someone
is angry about this either.
The other day I was talking to a guy who said, “You know,
remember when we didn’t have voice mail, email or FAX. If
you weren’t home and the phone rang – you still managed to
go on living. Now with all the technology, people feel
they can’t get anything done even though they are “on call”
all the time.”
Use technology to enhance your life – but don’t let it control you.
Know when to say no.
Take a pause. It’s good to give yourself space.
Take time to sit quietly and breathe. Breathe into the Super
Computer within. Delete the garbage. Make space for new
Do this and I guarantee you’ll get more fulfillment out of life.
