The Disconnection Age

Some claim we are in the information age.  Others sat we have moved through that and are now in the technological age. I disagree.  We are neither.

We are in something much bigger.  Much darker.  And whether we like it or not, it’s the reality.

We are in the disconnection age.

While self-help and 'how-to' books are at all time highs, all one needs to do is take a stocktake of our society to see we are the most medicated, depressed and disconnected humans in history.

But….Why?

Why do we have social networks with hundreds and even thousands of friends, yet can count our real friends on one hand?

Why does Facebook need to remind us of our so called friends’ birthdays?

Are we really that self absorbed we need a computer to tell us to feel an emotional connection?

We use our social media to arrange a catch up, only to spend the whole time browsing our news feed wondering what could've been.  Asking ourselves; What else is out there?  What are we missing out on?

Why are we always chasing?

Looking for that which we perceive we don’t have in a constant search for 'happiness' as a destination point.

Why can’t we be content with what is already there?

To be grateful of what is happening right at this very moment.  

The truth is, you are, and always have been, more than enough.

So as you look down and stare at this screen, take a moment to pause  and discover what is already right in front of you.

For it is there that you shall find what it is you are looking for.

Hayden.
