How Does Technology Influence Our Spiritual Path?

YouTube video

In what ways does technology empower us … and in what ways is it the bane of our existence? How do the forces of social media and endless information that we can access influence our spiritual journeys? We are surrounded by technology left, right, and center. Most of us live and breathe it: we start and end our days looking at screens and getting lost in the infinite wormholes of the online world. Is there a healthy way of approaching technology that enhances our psychospiritual growth?

  1. Info was great. Have been following many forms os spirituality for a while. In many ways was taught not to associate with different types of people. Shut them out and only associate with positive people shut out all negative from your life. Also taught just to be a part and join community of spiritual group and shut out others. Now I have another way and that is allowing not shutting out. Thanks for the info

    • Thanks for sharing Marguerite, I’ve been told all of those things too. When you think about it, it’s a very cult-like mentality: to shun others and only stick with those who reinforce and validate your beliefs. Allowing (rather than shutting out) is a much more heart-centered approach that feels true and real to me.
