Mindfulness in the age of bits

Mindfulness in the age of bits and infinite information requires letting go and releasing our attachment to the need to know.

  1. this hits the mark with me. I am always thinking about what I what to learn and complete before I die. Letting go of that would be great. Concentrating on the moment at hand is where it’s really at. Thank goodness I have finally realized this. I am making progress in this arena!

    • Thank you for sharing your thoughts here, Cindy. 🙂

      The reality is that we cannot and will not learn everything before we die and the sooner we embrace that, the sooner we will be able to start living in the now, learning the things we’re passionate about exploring and understanding.

  2. this resonates so much with me!
    I’m eager to know everything and constantly frustrated because I can’t fulfill this need.
    I figure I should put more effort in letting go of this need than in trying to fulfill it.
    tnx for the reminder!

    • I’m so happy this resonates with you! 🙂 The sooner we recognize that we cannot learn and know everything, the sooner we can start really living within each moment, perusing the things that really make us feel alive.
