This is a funny confession, but technology inspires me both creatively, and spiritually.
I used to live in a tiny bubble that was comprised of my immediate neighborhood, my city, occasional forays to other cities. Now, thanks to technology, I'm connected to a vast web of people, through my blog, email, and social networking. I've got ghostwriting clients in LA, students in Nashville, and friends all over the world. People say technology is the death of intimacy, but I say the opposite.
There's no escaping it--we're all connected. Quantum physicists tell us that everything we do impacts even the tiniest atoms of matter. Technology proves this to me, over and over again, every day. Because I have physical evidence of our interconnections through technology, it is much, much easier for me to believe it in a spiritual manner.
As above, so below, the ancients say. As technology, so spirituality.
