News blasting at us, fragmenting us, dislocating us from our selves and the world around us
Daniel Popper: There is no denying how easy it is to be distracted in today’s world. Over exposure to phones, media, news blasting at us, fragmenting us, dislocating us from our selves and the world around us. The daily digital dementia leads to a scrambling of our senses.
This piece for me speaks to a return to stillness. For me being and connecting with Nature and meditation are essential in finding my center in the chaos.
And the awareness that there is no separation between us and nature .
