Computer Free Morning Pledge

For a variety of reasons I like to get up, work out, check my bank account, facebook, etc. every morning. The computer generally swallows about thirty minutes of my time at home in the morning. I’m currently facing sure insanity as I sit here typing this while sitting on the patio, doves are calling, the sunrise is beautiful, the flies seem to be having an awfully early morning. This isn’t working for me. I need a computer free morning before I go to work and use the computer for most of the day. Do we have any time for reflection?

I spend a few minutes in meditation and prayer each morning. Ifind that this really helps me to start the day with a good frame ofreference. As part of my prayers, I thank whoever is helping me – I’msure that somebody or something is – I express gratitude for all myblessings and try to forgive the people that I’m feeling negativetoward. I try hard not to judge anyone, and I try to bless everyone who is part of my life, particularly anyone with whom I am having any problems.

Will you make time for prayer, reflection meditation…or just some silence? I encourage you to take the pledge with me. No computers prior to work…if your retired set a time for reflection before you start into your computer filled day. Spend that time getting your day started right rather than starting out with useless information that can certainly wait until 0800.

Reflect, meditate, pray...

Reflect, meditate, pray…

About Hiram

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories
