Mother Earth is an amazing spectacle of miracles in every form... whether the lighting, the flora and fauna, the scenery, the natural wonders. There is something innately soothing about being connected to the outdoors, and if you've ever heard of Earthing, you will understand why this is. There is a natural exchange of ions that occurs from the earth into our bodies through our feet, etc when we stand on the 'earth'.. the earth helps to balance out the negative ions in our bodies, leading to a healthier internal environment; truly becoming 'grounded'. Science has backed these claims and we know the importance of this connection.
Disease and strife have increased steadily as we've encompassed our selves in concrete jungles: cities. We've 'disconnected' ourselves from our healthy earth by placing man-made materials between us and the earth's surface: asphalt, concrete, floors, linoleum, metal, the soles of our shoes.. all of these, a barrier between the natural, and necessary flow of energy between us and the earth.
I saw an article the other day and was rendered speechless by what it said... it was a survey to find out whether Vancouverites (in Vancouver, Canada) were for or against having WiFi available in parks around the lower mainland.. surprising amounts of people were for the idea! I was stunned! The idea of filling our few natural remaining spaces with radiation waves is so appalling, but even more so, that the majority don't seem to care what we're exposing ourselves to, as well as the flora and fauna in our warped desire to stay technologically 'connected' 24/7.
The true connection that we should be discussing is one that is void of technology, harmful waves of radiation from WiFi, cell phone towers, microwaves, Televisions and computers. It is one thing to honor the advancement of the human existence and our ability to create amazing technologies, but we must find a balance between greed and need, from a holistic perspective.
