Waiting for the train

Waiting for a train, a plane, a bus, a friend to arrive, for your turn in the queue…the majority of the human race use this time to stare into a screen on their smartphone, to be connected to the digital matrix. To avoid the ‘boredom’ of the mind not being occupied.

Most of that time will be spent on social media/messaging apps.

In itself there is nothing good or bad about this. However, we spend plenty of time waiting in our life, yet instead of being in that moment and experiencing our surroundings, perhaps an opportunity to interact with another human, read a book, or simply just be and be at peace and see the amazing world that is all around, we are sucked into the unconsciousness of the mind and the drama and toxicity that a great deal of the digital world is for most of us.

We are often inducing stress and anxiety at the same time as missing our real-life moment.

Wait for the train in peace by just being in the moment and experiencing our real life and being aware of the beauty and amazing things that surround us always. Just think how many things we missed or real humans we didn’t talk to because we couldn’t stand to ‘wait’ without being occupied by something to stimulate the mind.
