Nostradamus did not understand

26 Oct

In the 1960’s, as the first computers were being imagined and born, a very famous prediction was made. Someone predicted that the machines (Like Terminator) would automate many of our processes and the biggest problem people of the 21st century would be finding things to do with all our spare time!

Alas this Nostradamus did not understand that we are addicted to busyness and ambition. Maybe we are afraid of being still? I find myself constantly feeling guilty and pressured by all that has to be done each day… sometimes I think that I am addicted to this pressure.

It is good to carry our responsibilities lightly for they are ours only for a short time. I remind myself that if I keep faithfully putting one foot ahead of the next everything will happen at the appointed time.
