1.These days it is far too easy
To get lost in the forest of ‘things’
Things that don’t really matter
Distraction is the modern day curse
It will Hypnotise you
It will paralyse you
It will change you for the worse
2. So.. why can’t we stay still for a few more moments?
And let our thoughts float out into space
To dream of all those things that are really our own
And not something we saw on a digital interface or platform
With a bit of effort we can interact with a grander view
That includes nature ,everyday conversations and observations
With more gratitude and less expectations
3. It can start with a daily walk in the park
Without carrying your phone
You can take your dog
Don’t be afraid to spend quiet time alone
What a novel idea!
It is not dying – it is not dropping out
It’s getting back in touch with your own true self
A private revolution of sorts
Could provide a solution I guess
To the many problems that be-devil us in this modern world today
4. Recover , restore and re-set your life
Only one life
Just so many heartbeats
You have only so many days
How are you going to choose to spend them ?
