Nearer, My God, To Thee - day 27
#27 - well, i know it's been a while, but i'm trying to get better ;) my life is kinda hectic right now.. so the challenge is extremely hard and i don't know how long i will last. go without your cell phone for as long as you can. whew. i'm here at school and i don't have it and i feel naked. (that word caught your attention didn't it?;) in this world you can't escape. we are always plugged in: movies, music, games, talking, texting. (don't even get me started on the tweeting thing... whatevertheheckthatis.) you go home and close the shutters trying to escape people but you can't! you always have to be communicating. with facebook or your phone or whathaveyou. you can't hide from the world. there was a time when you could just ignore your phone and people would leave you alone. our heads get so full with data they overload. when was the last time you just sat quietly listening to your breathing and just cleared your mind? not worrying about that guy who is texting you or that other guy who won't text you. you sit and listen to the silence. the sound of it will crawl into your head, your lungs, your bloodstream, and just open the tiny spaces in there. then the universe can rush in and you will think things you never thought before. you will be able to find peace, just listen.
