My iPhone Does It Five Times a Day, Why Don’t I?

Checking for mail…Connecting….Updated.

It was about the 5th time in an hour that I was checking for emails on my iPhone. Call me compulsive, call me needy, but I love the thrill I get seeing a new email in my inbox.

For the first time though, my thoughts lingered on the Connecting… What exactly this machine is connecting to is a separate conversation entirely (the internet scares me). But I was left asking myself, how often am I connecting to my source? Whether we choose to connect with Buddha, Allah, or a giant squirrel in the sky the, the only concern is that we are connecting to something. Plugging our spirit into its source for updates is crucial.

My iPhone is now a source of spiritual inspiration? What doesn’t this thing do?

The Power of Intention

“It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there’s nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized. ” Wayne Dyer

Dr. Wayne Dyer is one of the biggest reasons why I think the way I do today. If it wasn’t for him my views on life, my energy, and my thought process would be way different. If you know me, you know how highly I think of this man…I used to talk about his books nonstop. I stumbled upon him in 2004 when I randomly picked up his audio book Power of Intention at a bookstore. Listening to him lit the flame under my ass and helped me realize that I cannot let my EGO get the best of me. Because of Dyer, I became interested in learning more about Buddhism, Hinduism, the Bahai Faith, different thoughts on spirituality, karma, reincarnation, and the way I carry my own energy. Emerging myself into this frame of thought really opened up a lot of doors for me and I feel much happier and mentally stronger. What a life changing book. -AM
