Is this boundary really necessary?

Okay, so my goal here is not to reiterate the fact that many of the "boundaries"  or "limitations" that seem to keep us from becoming all that we have been created for are within our own minds (sub consciously at times), but to just bring up some of those ridiculous things that we consciously set & which does create a boundary.

It is a boundary drawn between individuals or individuals & society.

Look around, do you see it? In today's world, it is EVERYWHERE.

That's right. practically everyone you see is wearing headphones. Be it listening to their favorite tunes, that inspirational podcast or that audio book that they have wanted to read.

They are everywhere; walking in some self created Zombie-like state. They are within themselves often oblivious to anyone or any thing around them.

What they have done, is created a boundary between themselves & everything around them.

And we wonder WHY communications on many levels have begun to break down (no, I am not talking about texting, tweeting or IMing). I mean REAL, PHYSICAL, FACE TO FACE communications.

When did this break down begin? Was it with our current generation or did it start with the previous generation? Is it the fault of the individual or their parents?

Well, after a bit of research, I may have found the answer.

We were weaned on them. back in the earliest days of our lives, we wore these head devices & we have never looked back!

Really now. One can't believe EVERYTHING that they read, right?

None-the-less, I actually do believe that there is an artificially created boundary that many in our society have created & I additionally believe that this boundary DOES AFFECT our communications with our society & with our envoronment.

God Bless You'
