Do you get annoyed when you see people on their cell phones? Wonder why they can’t just unplug and be in the moment? Think everyone needs to stop scrolling and start living?
If so, you might be sancti-phone-ius: one of those who people who assume people who are plugged in are somehow less present or spiritual than you. Kinda like those people smirk with pride as they declare that they “don’t watch television.” Yeah yeah, I know…not watching television makes you better, smarter, blah blah blah.
Here’s the deal:
When someone is on their phone in public you have no idea what it’s all about – and frankly, you can’t assume they are less spiritual or present than you.
For some people, that phone is their computer. They might not be able to afford a laptop or a desktop. The phone is their only option. It may be the sole way they can search for a job, stay in touch with their loved ones…or with what’s happening in the world.
Perhaps they might be reading the latest novel (yes, you can read books on your phone – there is an app for that). Or trying to research something for a college paper.
For others like myself who run businesses online, the phone is a way of dealing with a client concern quickly – rather than leaving them hanging.
You just don’t know.
Sure it’s easy to assume they are obsessing over some social media crap but is that so wrong too? Is it your business to police other people’s phone habits or to judge them harshly as less-than-spiritual if they are a bit too into their phones?
Really people…let’s drop the judge-y sancti-phone-ius schtick. Who cares?!
Everyone can be spiritual, whether they are on the phone or off the grid. Let ‘em do their thing. (Psst…if you’re really busy being in the moment, you probably won’t be so busy worrying about what someone else is doing or not doing.)
