iNATURE AND iLIVING
by Miles Patrick Yohnke
"Happiness is a dead cell phone battery."
God really is the greatest artist. One looks at nature and you realize this. It's all around us. In the smallest of things to the the sound of songs performed by birds. The vivid detail and fragrance of flowers. The fragrant breath of pine, fir, cedar, and poplar trees. From the blue dreamy sky to the glorious mountains. You just have to open your mind and go out into nature and it will take you in. In it you can tap into your own self. One can get a real understanding of their own beauty. Peel back the endless layers of the beauty that God created in us.
This is one reason it's terribly sad to see people just staring at their cell phone screens. Walking aimlessly. They're missing the point. The big high definition picture. They want to live. They want to feel. All they really need to do is lift their heads. Walk proud. Look all around. How spectacular is this?
iPads and devices have their place. We could talk about the wonderful library one has at their fingertips. An endless resource of materials and knowledge to build our minds. Or we can talk of the 86% of people that use it for porn.
It's nice to get information in a heartbeat. But it's troublesome to see so many folks bury their lives in facebook and other social networks.
Technology is great when used properly. Or it can take one down a dusty back trail to nowhere if one isn't careful.
Just something to think about.
