For the first time in history, all of the information and knowledge on the planet is available to most of the people on Earth. This power makes us God-like. However, we do not have the emotional maturity to handle this much power.
Forty years ago, we had seven television channels. Motion pictures, print, television and radio were the only media available. The messages were very controlled and the rules for living were well defined and easy to follow.
Now, with infinite access to different cultures, lifestyles and ways of being, we do not know what to think or believe, or how to act.
It used to be that finding a Playboy Magazine was a titillating secret. Now any child has easy access to every type of pornography. The access to information is overwhelming. Isis is very effectively using social media to recruit and train. The rest of society does not know how to respond to this new and unique threat.
Facebook and other social media has connected us with our friends and other groups in powerful ways which would have seemed inconceivable just a few years ago. Yet at the same time we feel disconnected, disaffected and isolated.
There is only one solution to this crisis. Spiritual awakening.
There is too much information to process and too many variables and possibilities to handle. We cannot figure out the way to live by thinking our way through it.
The only way to handle the ocean of information without becoming neurotic or psychotic is by choosing to turn our attention away from thought and towards presence.
Technology is changing so fast that there is no way to keep up with it. However we can handle all of these changes by adopting stillness. When we live in presence, we are in harmony with Universal Intelligence. Life unfolds exactly as it is supposed to for the highest good of all concerned. We are able to fulfill our life's purpose. We experience peace, love, joy and freedom.
Let's be still.
