I disconnected from electronics today.
Ho. Lee. Shit.
This little vacation from all my devices just blew my mind. I was already in the practice of not looking at my phone and taking social media naps, but a whole day sans electronics? IT SUCKED! I felt empty. I needed my fix. A few hours into it, I was going to listen to a podcast, but that'd mean I'd need to power up my...CRAP! I just bopped to the beat left in my head. This was a difficult day.
Towards the end of the day, I felt loads better. I didn't miss anything too important. I didn't interact with anything digital or robotic except when I went outside. My neighbor Steve said hi. I got some good work done. Overall, It was really quite liberating.
This morning, after eating breakfast and exercising, I immediately got online to read some nonsense and felt the world fighting me again. I checked all my messages and notifications to make sure I was still connected to the world. I felt bad, but comforted as well as more aware of the sensations that I was feeling.
I am back in the Matrix, but now I can travel in and out at will. Things are good.
