Let’s choose to use words that are kind, polite and courteous. Kind words will bring about a kind heart. Beautiful Words Make for a Beautiful Soul.
Often when I look around, I see people engrossed in their electronic gadgets, intent on receiving or sending a message. I saw one woman pushing a stroller with one hand while holding the phone to her ear. In the dress shop, another lady was talking away while she pulled out one garment after another to inspect. A young man was hurrying through the mall, coffee in one hand and his iPhone in the other. I wondered how he could text with the one hand, and still maneuver through the crowd and not bump into something.
If we are constantly tied to a phone, when do we allow the mind/brain to chill? If taking a walk through the park, we are distracted having an electronic conversation, do we see the flowers? smell the fresh cut grass and lush vegetation? hear the call and singing of the birds? A friend told me that the way her family communicates with each other is via text. Does that mean that we no longer enjoy personal contacts/visits. Is tea time a thing of the past? If I’m the person on the other end of the line, are you really connecting with me, or are you shopping? Just wondering………
Relaxation is total peace.
When you relax completely, there is total silence.
This overwhelming sense of tranquility is really what meditation is about. (mindfulness)
Neutral stillness of the mind, renews the tired soul, (regeneration)
