Who Are You Without Your Computer?

I have read several different Gurus’ on self-processing and they profess that if you process down to where you can hear your own blood pumping, you have created fertile ground in which to do self-processing work. In accessing the level of hearing your own blood pump through your body, you begin to think of things you might ordinarily not contemplate.

Today I decided to quiet myself down until I could hear my life force, my blood pumping in my ears. I didn’t have to sit quietly very long because I heard it. It was my own heart beating, pumping. I have heard it before, but didn’t really take the time to think that it is my body talking to me. I am a jumpy person and have to be up doing and saying something, or do I?

I hear myself ask? Who are you without your computer? The pounding seems to give me an answer. I am nobody. Oh sure you are someone, just someone different. With the computer I have lots of friends and a job. I can go to my computer everyday and find my work. I can find my website, my blogs, comments, questions, answers to life’s dilemma’s, history, philosophy and enter the world of others.
Again the question is asked. Who are you without your computer, not who are you with your computer?

Oh, I am a person who rises each morning, takes care of the getting ready for business and then, I go to my computer.

No, you have missed the point again.

WHO are you without your computer?

Oh yes.

I have become so involved with my computer that if it belches I start madly backing up everything recent. You still don’t get it. Stop talking about your computer.

So I have stopped, but I think what I am trying to say is that I must be mighty attached to my computer, but in reality, if I did not have the machine, I would fill the gap it would leave with other, perhaps more important life enhancing things of a relative nature. I hope I do not have to find out one way or another..

    Without my computer, I am calm, less agitated, but I won’t know my net worth without Charles Schwab.com.
    Again, without my computer, my left hand will be more fatigued from handwriting letters and other documents. Oh, but now without my computer, I can buy a new ribbon and refurbish my Smith Corona. Without my computer, scanner, printer my office will be neater because I will have a cleaner “desktop.”

    Without my computer, I am still the same person. I do all the necessary things that are basic for life. The computer has made my life easier, as I can search for things I want to learn more about and I can study, and compare. I can reach out to other people and communicate when ever I feel like it. They in turn can communicate with me, at a time convenient to them. I find that the computer can organize my thoughts and as I write, I actually learn more about myself.

    Who knew that with the encouragement of friends, some of my dreams might really happen?. Who knew that by sharing anothers experiences ,I actually feel like I am doing it too. So for me, the computer makes my heart beat faster,as I share and learn about life. It makes me laugh with those humorous e-mails. Now how do people think of all those funny things? When the computer gives me pain or sorrow, or even anger, I can shut it down in no time. Yes, I am in control and I have the power. Man, or woman in this case, can triumph over machine! Hear me roar!

    Hey you right. I got into hearing my blood passing by my ears. I asked questions and I got the answers, too. I think the answers are inside myself. I think I knew the answers, but I just didn’t know the questions to ask. I asked them. I am not afraid of the questions or the answers today. I was thou.

    OK, you got me, 2. I think this listening is meditation, right? I believe in meditation. That is how I figure out stuff. I can meditate anywhere. I can take meditation everywhere. I learned how to meditate even when I am giving speeches. I have a lot of speeches to give and I don’t get jittery anymore. I just send my blood pumping like you say. I really like my computer. They used to tell us in school that you always had a friend if you read a book, well, just nowadays, I have my computer and he is my friend. I know you know what I mean.
