Why?

Source:

I have been reading a book by Jeffery Deaver this morning called The Never Game and the part I am reading about at the moment is about the world of video gaming and its prominence in the world today. I mean BIG money involved as well a huge following. I must say, personally, I don’t like this direction the world is taking and if this is considered progress, I am one of those old stick in the muds refusing to go along. WHY? Because in my mind this is not the direction the world should be taking. We are being driven and lured into a techno world that offers us an escape from reality. I suppose that is okay to many, but what concerns me is the fact that NOBODY ever asks WHY we are so desperate to escape reality! Nobody ever looks deeply into what is wrong with reality that we need to escape from it. Herein lies the answer to so many of our problems as a society and yet we never ask why or look for answers.

A large  percentage of society is suffering a massive void within that has metastasized to the point of where we find ourselves today, empty and lost and asking what is the purpose for being here? This feeling is very distressing, but if we distract ourselves enough, we can make it go away for the moment.  While technology has been hugely successful with moving us forward in connecting with one another, it is also driving us to live in a world of disconnection. I know, that sounds like a huge dichotomy and it is I guess, but it is still what is occurring. Yes we can connect with anyone in the world via the Internet, but at the same time we rarely connect face to face, handshake to handshake with people or even with ourselves. We exist in our own little worlds and communicate via social media in one form or another. Obviously not everyone is like this so I won’t generalize it, but far too many do to feel comfortable about it.

I hope people will think about such things and revisit their own situations to see if they are getting the most out of their lives or are they just blindly going along unaware of their plight and what direction they are going in. The more we seem to connect with others in the world the more we seem to disconnect from self and that is a very dangerous position to find ourselves in. Especially in this crazed world that demands our attention to stay free and safe yet we are lost and not even aware of what is happening to us. Enough said. Open your minds and THINK for yourself, ask the important questions nobody seems to ask anymore. It may save you.

Blessings to all,

Visionkeeper ❤

I guess I should have mentioned why I think this is all occurring in the world. It seems to me people feel like their lives and the world are so out of control, they can at least  can control the video world in which they find themselves. Sad.

  1. I agree with you VK.. Another great write and observation..
    While on one hand technology is enabling us to connect quicker, it also is separating and dividing us. As the younger generation especially are being drawn into the virtual reality, while not engaging in the Real World.
    Like you say not all are like it, but we went out early yesterday morning, it was the time children were walking to school.. It was a rare to see a child walking looking where they were going, most had earplugs in and were eyes down into their mobile phones..

    Goodness knows where its all going to end.. But you see these Fantasy Films of the Future Realities.. We are not so far from being there..

    I often ask the Question WHY?? If only people would wake up to Nature’s reality, and begin to see the pollution and wake up to ways in which we can all contribute to make our world a better reality..

    Much love dearest VK.. For ALL the effort and love and concern you always put into your posts..
    I took another break from blogging they are getting more and more..
    We had a few fine days, but this evening we have an Amber weather warning of bad thunderstorms and more heavy rain, just what this area doesn’t need as many rivers are overflowing not far away and homes have been flooded.. Thankfully we are not affected, 🙂

    Love and Blessings dear VK

    • Thanks DW ! I keep hearing about rain over your way and I can’t help but think of the allotment and I hope yours is not getting ruined! Weather wars personified.It really is amazing to watch all that is taking place, especially the differences between those who are awake and those who are not. Makes you scratch your head and wonder how on earth they can think the way they do. Baffles the mind for sure! Just imagine the world if everyone was awake. Doubt we’ll ever see it. We’ll be living like the Jetson’s soon, flying about in our autos….God help me….Give me a small cabin and a bit of land to tend and I’d be happy….Glad your breaks from blogging have been good for you! I can totally relate! Be well my friend and stay dry over there….Thinking of you. Hugs and love….VK ❤

  2. Excellent post and I LOVE your thoughts, VK. Why. One of my favorite words as I attempt to figure things out. Just today in fact, I found myself asking why about something in my life. I haven’t received answers but I did put those questions out! Yes people are so empty and it is so sad. Yet I am seeing others that are not and really determined to change the direction this world is going in. Again, excellent write!!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

    • Thank you AR ! I appreciate your comments a great deal, so few people come here anymore…I often wonder how long I will keep blogging. Yes why is a favorite word of mine as well…I am forever searching for answers which I can only do if I ask why first! I often say these are amazing times to be living in , and they are, but they are tough as well as you know….We will prevail and accomplish our goal of change in one form or another. There is always hope if we carry it in our hearts. Hugs to you & love…VK ❤

    • So glad I was able to help in some small way! You were pondering upon a wonderful belief we all need but we have had hope repeatedly dashed by the darkness. That is why we must keep it alive quietly within and feed it daily…Perhaps the new park will have more answers for you 🙂 much love…VK ❤
