Are language and words the barrier that prevents people from connecting on a more spiritual level?
We all smile, make love and eat in the same language...
Social media is based off letters and writing, but lots of people are still lonely despite more connections all over the world through internet. People open their laptops and shut their doors, don't go outside to see their friends but instead start a group chat...
Eventhough the internet as a whole is beneficial to families businesses trying to connect with others around the world, do you think that it is starting to replace social behaviour with un-social media?
Social media connections help when there is nothing better, but they cannot replace face to face connections.
The spiritual and emotional essence behind language and words do not show up in an Internet chat; and what shows up in an Internet (even FaceTime) chat can more easily be acting than in a real-presence connection.
My thought is that people cheat themselves if they rely on social media for spiritual and emotional connection; it is worth the effort to work at connecting with someone who can hold hands with you.
