You’re absolutely right about the blogosphere and social media being distracting. It’s distracting us from creating and exploring original ideas.
Your comment made me realize how meditation is an excellent way to reconnect with that place of silence, that realm where thoughts, dreams, and ideas originate.
We need to take meditative breaks from the blogosphere and from social media too. Even something as simple as taking a walk outside or a hike through the forest, with no electronic distraction, would be enough to help us reconnect with our inner selves.
