Do not allow technology to separate you as a society. Do not let technology isolate you. It causes separation, isolation, misunderstandings, lack of sensitivity and confusion. Technology is good for many things, but it is also a detriment to many things.
Time spent with others should be a time that is uninterrupted. There are sacred moments that you share when you are together and they should be treated as such. Allowing technology to get in the way of these moments causes a divide between two people. There needs to be understanding.
There is a time for everything and everything a time. Keep this idea as you travel through life. Everything has its place and its time. Choose to limit technology to times when you are alone and are in the working mindset. This is the time that you should dedicate to answering emails and checking messages. The times spent with family and friends need to be reserved as sacred moments that will never happen the same way again. Remove the technology and connect with the people who are in your presence while they are there. Connection will lead to greater understanding and intimacy. Amen.
