Now that you have had this epiphany and feel motivated to move, to let go of fear and move in a different direction, what is it you want to do? You can do anything! Anything is possible remember. Wait, there is a price to pay for everything you say? Well with every action there is an opposite and equal reaction, so yes in a sense, but if you look at it like its a horrible thing like "paying for it" than you will never make your dream come true. All this means is you need to alter your plans or think outside the box. It can happen, and it can be a win win, you just need to let your faith know exactly what it is you want. If you want that dream job but it entails you moving to another state you may be worried about how it will effect your family. Your children may have to go to another school and your parents and siblings may really miss you. So forget it! Never mind...I will just stay here and keep the same job I have always had and make everyone happy...except myself. Um, NO! Where there is a will there is a way! Go after your dream and find a way to make it happen and have faith that everything will be ok! You children will adjust and your family will be ok. It's unfair of you to stop living your dream so that everyone else can be happy.
So what is it you want to do? How is it you want to live? The choice is yours! You can do whatever you want! You really can!

Today I read a rhetorical situation where the author, Nicholas Carr, used facts to back up his theory about "How the Internet Is Making Us Stupid" (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/internet/7967894/How-the-Internet-is-making-us-stupid.html). I began reading the article with a very open mind until I came to the second paragraph where he states:
But our dependence on the internet has a dark side. A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that the net, with its constant distractions and interruptions, is turning us into scattered and superficial thinkers.
Everything happens for a reason. The internet and technology is not making us stupid it is moving us towards a new awakening, one that never will never be possible until we go through these stages of evolution. I am curious what the author thought he was going to accomplish by publishing he article. He was researching to write a book about his findings. Did he feel he would change the direction our world was aiming towards by stating how it is turning us into a horrible shallow society? If anything I feel his article gave people things to reflect upon and decide for themselves where it is our world is headed. There may be others out there who support and believe in his views, but if he were looking as deeply as he is claiming needs to be done he would be able to see that there is a much bigger picture going on here. I am not saying I am right and he is wrong I am saying that this is all playing out just as it should and that through negative persuasion people can be forced to look deeper into the darkness until the light is found.
What do you think? Did you read the article? What are your views on how our world is evolving?
