All of Humanity’s Problems

“All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.” – Blaise Pascal

Imagine meeting someone who just bought the latest Mac, fully loaded with the top specs. You ask them what they need it for and they tell you that they are only going to use it to surf the web. Naturally, you think to yourself, “What a waste of money.”

At the same time, when we consider the power of our own minds, and how little we access its abilities, are we any different?

By taking time each day to sit quietly, whether in a room, a beach, or driving in a car, we allow our minds to talk to us. They have so much insight and processing power, but we usually miss out because it can be uncomfortable to slow down and listen. We are so used to rushing from one thing to the next that we are like that person who bought that awesome Mac, and all she does with it is jump from one site to the next.

  1. Here’s a writen gaffe I love: Many years ago in a school building that no longer stands, my principal had a document on her desk that needed to be sent to the su8tnineerdent&#p217;s office. Before doing so she managed to spill a little of her coffee on it. The note she attached read, “Sorry about the stain. I got laid on my desk.”
