I believe one of the primary intentions of people in this world today is to find and have a genuine experience. It’s nothing new. This desire has been around for years, but seems to becoming more aloof in today’s changing landscape.
Ironically, the experiences we are having today -via technology – can be the opposite of that. We are communicating more and more through our phones, laptops and Zoom meetings now than ever. I’m not sure of the long term effects of such methods, but I can assure you it cannot replace human to human connection.
The problem with such technology is that when we tend to like something for it’s convenience and time-saving aspects, we think more is always better. That’s not always the case.
Let’s not forget what’s important here.
After a long day of travel to distant countries or even across a few states in the U.S., the best way to reset your circadian clock’s and reconnect yourself to your world and your body is to walk the earth in your bare feet. Feel the ground beneath you and reconnect physically, emotionally and spiritually. This is absent from many electronic interactions.
The definition of genuine: Sincerely and honestly felt or experienced.
I value authentic and honest people in my life as well as genuine experiences and I would be willing to bet you do too. Then let’s strive for those.
