We live in a strange world. Is it just me, or each year we become more distanced from ourselves and others? We connect to our phones while disconnecting from real life? Could we save ourselves before it’s too late?
Gandhi once said “Be the change you want to see in the world.” and I constantly wonder how many of us really do that. We are used to complain about everything, starting from the weather, to politics even lifestyles. We get swapped by the Web ob deception that turns us into negative Nellys. And in all this process we forget about us.
When was the last time you stopped, on your way to work, and admired the flower that desperately tries to grab your attention? When was the last time you listened to the birds tweeting in the morning? When was the last time you did nothing, just be one with the world?
Instead, we like flowers on Instagram and Facebook, Tweet our thoughts first thing in the morning and try to multitask most of the time. Are we on a speed train that has no destination? Are we about to lose who we are whilst becoming someone just like anyone else?
I hope not, I hope we will stop the speed train and derail it into a better direction, to a destination that will benefit us as individuals and the humanity as a whole.
