More vs. Better: Connections that matter

12cec6d09f2cf40e45a6c9847ef06866

We live our lives at such a fast pace. We seem to be working more hours and juggling more tasks both at work and home, with no relenting.

As part of the technological age, we are connected 24/7, and we find it difficult to switch off.

More work to do at work, more friends to connect to on social media, more TV to watch at home because of the fear of missing out.

The more we connect to the external world, less we connect to our internal selves, to our soul.

This has changed the face of how we live and work. Expectations are higher, the pace of life is quickening, and we are struggling to keep up.

We are more stressed, more impatient, and more miserable, our health suffers and we have less peace of mind.

In a world that encourages noise and busy-ness, we find it hard to be quiet and still.

More connections is not the goal of the creator. Better connection is the creator’s dream.

Better [not more] is the point of the work.

More stuff leads to a world of scarcity, while better connected creates abundance.

“The quieter you become the more you can hear.” ~Ram Dass

It’s about making connections that matter.

“A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life, for it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that true joy can live.”– Bertrand Russell, The Conquest of Happiness
