Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' into the future

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' Into the future -Steve Miller Band Is it me or have the last 2 years just flown by? The days, weeks, and months just keep going by. The clock keeps ticking, the world keeps turning and crazy things keep happening. There's a whole sect of our population right now planning to spend the great majority of their lives in a virtual reality. The internet along with grocery and food delivery services, and let's not forget the great and powerful Amazon, have made it so you really don't have to leave your home for anything anymore. And to be honest that is scary to me. I feel like the future that we are headed into is going to be more disconnected, more desensitized, more dehumanized, and more depraved. I always aim to be light and encouraging here on the blog so I don't want to be a downer, I'm just concerned that as we slip further and further into this future we need to get a hold on our humanity. Like NOW. We just celebrated what I consider the most important event in history- the death, burial, and resurrection of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And as one minister stated so eloquently, it was His humanity and His humble servitude that allowed Him to sacrifice His life for the entire human race. Not once did He rely on His deity when it came time to do the deed that would save us. So in going back to humanity I long for real connectedness mentally, spiritually, physically, and emotionally. I know that normal as we once knew it is not coming back, but can I request that we put a concerted effort into having and showing genuine care and concern for our fellow humans? We have to share this earth with other people, there is a whole entire world outside of your door, outside of your devices. Those people are more than food prep and makeup tutorial videos on social media, they're more than picture bubbles in your comments section. They are more than jokes and memes on your timelines. They are sons and daughters, people with families and feelings and histories and challenges and issues. We need each other and we cannot let this new normal, this new future, make us view one another as disposable. We are interconnected and interdependent. We are social animals. That's how it was always meant to be from the beginning of time. So why have we gotten so far away from that? Why are we so afraid to let people in? Why are we so afraid to be vulnerable with one another? What do we think our honesty will get us? We so want to be accepted and we so fear being judged. Why is that such a scary part of our human existence? Do we still have time to get it right or are we too far down the path to destruction? Time waits for no man. We're getting closer and closer to destiny will it be all that we imagined? As for me I always want to be of service to my fellow humans and especially my fellow believers. I have not relinquished my mission to guide others along their purpose discovery journey. I want to share transformational experiences with others. And I want them to carry the torch to ignite others in their inner circles and communities. I believe that when individuals become confident and well adjusted they become leaders in their own right and the more self-assured leaders we have in our communities the better. That is when we will get out of comparison politics, covetous materialism, oppression, and violence. I pray that we can get back to basics where kindness, compassion, and generosity are enacted values that secure our future. Until then I'll just fly like an eagle 'til I'm free. atb
