This is not the world the baby boomers grew up in, this is not the world of generation X. It is the world of the millennial. A world far different from anything before it, something more impactful than the industrial revolution. It is an era of technology, and consumerism, where the two shall intertwine and never be the same.
Many people only know of the giant redwood trees, or sequoia’s found in California, gigantic lumbering behemoth trees that tower far above the normal tree line we are used to. They are trees so large you could drive a car through one.
When I was a young boy I made it a habit to stretch, pray and meditate for at least 15 minutes a day. The prayer was to remain spiritually vigilant, the meditation was to calm and relax nerves and body. The stretching was to unwind and relieve muscle tension. Just 15 minutes a day is all I needed, sometimes I would take as long as 2 hours. I would practice different meditation techniques or I would spend some extra time stretching, or praying. Whatever, the time spent was my body, mind and soul were in unison with each other.
