Unintentionally, social media is creating a culture of addicts on the status, location, and doings of others.
This “look at their life” and “look at their stuff” and “look at their dreams” adrenaline appears to be unquenchable. Do we do this to avoid looking at ourselves? Do we do this to avoid clicking the “like” button of us? Do we do this because someone convinced us at some point that we are not @ mentionable?
We need to look at ourselves more.
Looking into a book we sort have to look at ourself.
Having tough and great conversation we have to look at ourself.
And staring at vacant canvases, trying to start/make something from nothing, makes us look at ourself.
I guess what I’m getting at is we do ourselves a lot more good to read ourselves than to constantly read others through tweets and instagrams. Not so you constantly look at yourself from a place of arrogance or pride, but so you look at yourself from a place of wonder and awe as to where you can plug into the world that is evolving, not revolving, around you.
Live your life. Don’t live someone else’s. Find things that read you and report back to the universe with that.
And while you’re at it, look up from your smart phone and experience this place.
