Spirituality and Technology
Can and should spiritual teachings and philosophies be integrated and taught in conjunction with technology in a sacred way?
Well, I AM using technology as a medium to share my own spiritual awakening and to fulfill a divine task before me. I have used technology to further my knowledge and love of self. I and everyone can attend a favorite spiritual center from home. This proves to be especially helpful for less mobile citizens, and others who may not have flexibility to go to a specified location at a specified time. Technology can be an efficient way to buy a product or hire someone for a job. Technology assists and provides quality of life for many who live with different abilities and needs.
The answer must be "Yes!" Technology and Spirituality can be and should be integrated and taught together in a sacred way. Some people believe Spirituality and Technology are one in the same.
While technology can be misused and overused - just like anything else under the sun. I believe we, humanity, are here relying on technology to extract information from the universe, to share with others and to connect, and we therefore, must vow to integrate it, in its many forms into our lives with purpose and with an open mind.
How do we go about talking about technology with our children in an elevated way that addresses potential problem areas, such as diminished communication or socializing skills stemming from "overuse"? How do we listen and learn and implement our children's ideas about technology? How can we evolve technology and its use in a way that promotes sustainability and preservation of our Earth's environment? What special projects could educators offer? What types of technology are needed in every community?
