Are we trying to OVERENTERTAIN ourselves?

    Just thinking about going back and forth on TV channels, internet, then reading books, then whatever else we can find to keep ourselves occupied.

    What would we be doing if we weren't always thinking about what we should do next? Your thoughts?

    Personally as I get wiser (older) I have noticed the benefits of trying not to think to much and in keeping things simple!! I prefer to keep my train of thoughts as simple and uncomplicated as possible. That is not to say I don't keep up with what is going on in the world, but at the same time whatever is going on out there it doesn't mean it will affect what is going on inside of my own world! so after having said all that I rather occupied myself with spending quality time with the people I love and love me back, and of course spending a lot of time meditating in total silence, anything else I block it out of my mind.

    . . . we are futiley trying to avoid the void . . . happy talk is the lingua franca of the day . . .

    . . . the sages all have said, in one way or another, that the contemplative life is the only one worth living . . . but the so-called modern age offers myriad distractions . . .

    . . . the question is why is such a thin gruel distracting to so many? . . . perhaps someone with a tattoo could answer . . .

    I need to remember that more often - the bold.

    One almost feels as though they are left behind when the television if off. "I don't want to miss my programs!". When I move, I'm not hooking up cable.
