Too Much Information
We are living in times where we are being bombarded by information. However, is the information we are receiving really accurate? We are addicted to “digital information. This is information that, like a digital signal, is made up of bits and pieces broken off from the whole. There is another form of information called analog information, which comes to us as a wave. An article that I recently read by Philip Shepherd explains it this way, “Indigenous Polynesian sailors use information from the ocean waves to navigate their way across the Pacific and find an island up to five hundred miles away- an unimaginable feat to the colonial Europeans who first encountered them and still sometimes got lost even with sextants and compasses. This native navigational tradition was suppressed and prohibited by the Europeans, but it has survived. Navigators are chosen in infancy and are placed in tidal pools for hours, feeling the water’s rhythms and currant.”
They were attuned to the energy of the earth. Something we have forgotten.
Everything effects everything else. This is the butterfly effect. There is so much this earth has to teach us if we are open to receive this information as a whole and not in fragmented pieces. Listen from your Hara, your gut, and get out of your head. Be still and know that you are God.
