September 2021 Newsletter
Hello, and a stupendous September to you!
Are you connected to your environment?
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter.
Today's issue is about being connected to your environment, or not.
Most days I take at least one walk through my neighborhood, to get outside and enjoy the trees and sky, and to get away from my computer.
Quite often I encounter a neighbor who looks at me while asking a greeting-type question, like "So how are you doing?". It's only after
my friendly answer that I realize they were talking to someone on their phone! The neighbor was connected to me visually, at least briefly,
while their attention and their main connection was with the person on the other end of their phone conversation.
This guy with his face right up to his computer screen isn't paying any attention to what else is happening around him, no matter how interesting
it may be. He might even consider lovely music or a pretty sight outside his window a distraction from what he's trying to do. His entire environment
right now is the screen! Are there times when you're so immersed in electronic or virtual reality, you forget it's not real?
When I was growing up, even though there were no computers yet, I was often "lost in a book", ignoring everything outside of its pages. My mother would chase
me out of the house with instructions to go play, so I'd take a book with me and climb a tree to read it in peace. Then she'd call me and I didn't hear
her, being so caught up in whatever I was reading.
When I'm reading or writing an article now, I take frequent breaks to look out the window or get a drink of water or go for a short walk, just to change the
focus of my attention. Otherwise I might miss seeing the full moon rising, or a spectacular sunset. I'm also more available to interact, whether it's with
my guy who wants to chat, or a neighbor walking by when I'm outdoors mowing the lawn. The book will still be there for me when I return.
For some of us, it's easier to "connect" with a book or screen than with another person, whose energy can be overwhelming, or in conflict with our own. We
don't all have as much peace or playfulness in our relationships as the boy and his father with the fake mustaches! Be easy on yourself. If you're not
comfortable in a crowd, maybe being with one friend, or talking with her on the phone, is enough connection for today.
In the image above, the dog is more connected with his environment, while the human has a brain full of many distractions. In my vision practices, I am often
pulling myself back to the present, to look at and connect with what's right in front of me and near me, to "be here now", like this dog naturally does. I invite
you to connect a little more fully with your surroundings, whoever or whatever they may be, and see what you've been missing. If you don't look, you won't see!
