We’re here to fart around

I’m sitting here about to write today’s blog, which I have decided to be about not sitting in front of a screen, be it our mobile phones, tablets or PCs, and it’s ironic that you’ll read it on a screen!

We are not on this planet to just sit staring at a screen, mainly observing someone else’s life whether through the fiction of TV/Film etc or through reality of YouTube and social media.

We are here to jump for joy, climb trees, splash in puddles, dance on the beach, run through a field of tall grass, laugh, smile, cry, be with other people.

The being with other people is the real thing that is disappearing rapidly through the advancing erosion of human contact that we seem evermore keen to embrace through a digital world.

Instead of buying a book online, we could walk to the bookshop and talk to people on the way, we can observe others, we can enjoy being away from mental stimulus of our smartphones, we can stop and have a coffee and watch the world go by. All of these experiences teach us and enrich us. They allow us to bring our light to the world for others and for us to experience the light of others. The energies that we all transmit like beacons to light up others.

We won’t get this from shopping online.

Kurt Vonnegut once said ‘we’re here on Earth to fart around’, adding ‘we’re dancing animals…let’s all get up and move around a bit right now…or at least dance’.

We are not here to be stuck in a chair staring at a screen, go and fart around, and there doesn’t have to be a reason or a purpose. Just be.

13 and half years

We think that we do not have time to do things, but there is always time, it is now.

It is what we choose to do with our time and it means that we have to perhaps do less of one thing in order to introduce another activity into our lives.

It is what we choose and if we really want to do something, then we can find the time. But there is a difference between what our mind imagines we want to do to fit our story, image and ego and what our soul really wants to experience.

Once we listen to our feelings instead of the mind and its sabotaging thoughts, then we can, of course, find the time and it is now, the only time we actually ever do anything.

However, if we still think there isn’t time, we could always spend a little less time watching stuff like YouTube, Netflix, TikTok, Prime Video, TV and so on. On average a human spends 4 hours a day watching/looking at media/internet/social media. Thats the equivalent of 13 and half years over the course of an average life of 82 years. Imagine all the things you can do in the 13 and half years!!!

Still think we don’t have time?

Listen to your feelings, let go of the mind, its sabotaging thoughts and its stories. Be you, do what you love and do it now.
