Wake up

20-30-40-50 years ago we might have had a house phone, a TV set, one car, one holiday a year, our ‘Sunday Best’ outfit.

We didn’t have a mobile phone (some have 2), a mini iPad, an iPad, a laptop, a home PC – that’s each. We didn’t have a car each, we didn’t have the internet, we didn’t have a TV in every room.

We have everything now, more than we can possibly use or value, we are connected to email, social media, the internet and the world 24/7 wherever we are. We have more devices, technology, connections and alerts than we’ve ever had.

Yet we are the most lonely, most disconnected, dissatisfied, inhumane, violent, hateful, distrusting and generally miserable humans to ever walk this planet. We are the most unconscious and mind-controlled ever.

If only we could wake up and see it. The reality of human’s insanity that we live on a daily basis is there for us all to see. Then it is a choice as to whether we want to stay awake or go back to the insanity of unconsciousness.

Confused

In countries where food is not plentiful, life is more simple, they have less of most things and people often sit in a group of friends or family and perhaps pray or say something to express their gratitude for what they have and what they are about to eat.

In other parts of the world, where food is plentiful and very often wasted, where people often sit alone to eat, the only thing that happens is people take a photo of their food and post it on Instagram for others to like. Then return to their smartphones and eat, not just consuming food but consuming yet more data.

We’re confused in our thinking that having everything equates to happiness. The people who have the least tend to have the most gratitude and joy in life and those that have it all are often unfulfilled.
