WHAT? Can a writer even survive without this 24/7 multidimensional playground? What will happen to me without all those cherished Cosmic updates during this most auspicious time in human evolution?
OK– so those are just two of many questions that are bouncing in my head as I come out of meditation and begin to recall the inspiration received while tuning into my own sacred channel.
I know people. Real people. People who used to be on Facebook and then deleted their account. Permanently. They are still alive, but just don’t connect in that way anymore. How. Is. That. Possible? (or MAYBE they created a new super-secret identity account and didn’t invite me to play…hmm…)
How can one possibly exist without the plethora of positivity plastered upon the virtual walls? And who will listen to the words of comfort and wisdom I have to offer? What will my value be if I’m not present on Facebook? Will anyone even know I exist beyond these walls? Will I be…FORGOTTEN?
Well, that may be a bit dramatic, considering I’ve been much less active in the last several months and still seem to enjoy a pretty amazing life. It’s not that I don’t Like Facebook, or value the opportunity to connect with friends and family, expanding my interests and social horizons. That’s all really great, which is why I’m not deleting my account.
PSSTTT…come here…let me tell you a secret… Here’s the thing. I’ve grown a bit weary of reading all the wonderful words of wisdom, yet seeing its apparent absence in “being.” Yeah, I know, a bold statement STEEPED in duality. THAT’S why I’ve decided to see what my life looks like sans all the flowery words and, instead, use that time to bask in my own garden and see what sprouts.
I’ve noticed something about myself. Not only have I been writing my own words, so similar to saints past and prophetically posted, but I’ve also been experiencing deeply the essence behind the words. So I can’t help but wonder…what is it that keeps me coming back and…is the coming back actually HOLDING me back (self imposed, of course!)
All questions and secret obsessions aside, I am game for this adventure and feel it to be a well timed inspiration. I plan to start my Facebook Fast tomorrow, 11/24/12 and will check back into the game on Christmas Day (maybe).
Seeing how there has been this burgeoning urge for me to get up close and personal on the real meaning of Christ Mass for ME, I can’t help but wonder if the vision I had to create a Holiday Gift Booklet has something to do with this whole experiment, and the fast is all part of a greater process I’ve yet to fully appreciate. We shall see.
In the meantime, I plan to be blogging a little (which will be shared on my Facebook feed automatically), and writing a LOT. So, if you want to stay connected, you are cordially invited to follow me at Writing Real Life.
Thanks for indulging my divulging!
