Social Media with People and their excuses, like “its complicated”

Posted in Blogroll, http://setapart.wordpress.com/, http:mindworthy.mypodcast.com, kendrajoy87, Uncategorized on September 21, 2011 by activeinspiration

We humans always have a plan or an end game in play.  There is always a reason for what we either are about to do or are doing.  We see this even more clearly as social media continues to evolve into who knows what.  I imagine in time, if not already, social media will have a resemblance to our experience as humans.  The challenge is, will we be able to keep up with all of the images, or portrayals of ourselves we produce attempting to accomplish the satisfaction of our own desires.

In the past when all we had, was basically written or verbal communication, by letter or phone. Where the “gift of gab” so to speak, was the art of accomplishing our end game.  The beauty of discovering the truth then and now is still observation of actions and remembering what has been said.  With social media documentation has improved.  We see this in all of those who have suffered old stuff about them gone viral on the net from what was said either written or in video or photos.   I think people will have to adapt, to protect themselves much better in the future.  But what about when your young?  That’s where the true danger is, be careful young people, what you say or do could come back to bite you where it hurts when your older.

My daughter who asked a question on a social medium of which I don’t remember verbatim, partly because its true, and to protect her anonymity.  Asked what it meant when someone used the phrase “What do people mean when they answer its “complicated”.  Here is my answer:

People don’t want to answer by saying its complicated.  People walk around like they are carrying a projector screen saying look at the screen that’s me.  They don’t want anyone to see who they really are, they prefer to present an image they can manage.  Thus the end game.  Figuring this out requires one to go for the ride for a while to see just what their motivation truly is. Being one who believes the Truth of God allows me to shed the skin of worldly pride and live trying to be honest about who I am and to others.

Being a Christian, I enjoy God’s Word, the Bible in how it works on me and helps me to become who God created me to be.  Anything else is to settle for second best, I don’t want to live an inferior life, rather than the one God has given me, and I find it difficult to understand why anyone else would.  My advise is to simply pick up the Bible and read, and while you’re reading, talk to God, and then keep reading to see what His answer is.

Is Apple a falling Star?

I’ve been seeing for about a month or two the lack of the normal leaks and energy associated with the up coming announcement of this years Apple upgrades.   In a short while I believe Apple will evidence their own slump in sales and the first confirmation will be the iPhone 5 sales.  Apple has hinted that they are planning on selling one iPhone 5 to three iPhone 4’s. I would attribute this to the public’s comfort-ability with 3G.   Of course one must ask what happens with their new tablet.  Which if they want to keep their lead should be a quad-core.  If they choose to stay with the pack, then they become just another one of the tablets.  If they do go with the quad-core their challenge is to maintain their price structure.  An increase means further decrease in sales, unless Apple has yet something else new and exciting up their sleeve.

After Hp unloaded their tab’s, the market realized that price has been the reason for stagnation, not competition, or their OS.  Hp might have something here, if they can make up their loss from the tab’s on apps and accessories etc, they might want to go home and rethink themselves.

I’ve heard all the hubbub over Mr. Jobs resigning, and yes I can go with the health issue but, its interesting the timing is when he is building their massive new campus in Cupertino Ca.  One could think his priorities have shifted towards his legacy rather than the company’s continued success.  One good thing is the apprentice has had some good on the job training.   So in closing, being that I don’t prefer Apple products, for several reasons, I do enjoy watching Apple and their success.  I am of late a bit concerned  about that so with a final ado, all hail the Emperor whose time now is spent building the death star in Cupertino Ca., isheep and clones are rallying to this event.

A beacon that provides for the needs of the people.

With the information age one of the byproducts rising to dominance is also the propaganda age. Not like in the cold war between countries, but between governments and individuals, between political movements and groups and agenda’s. 

We are no longer allowed the luxury of assumed truth.  Truth is a luxury like gold, that must be dug up from an earth of slander and misdirection.  From the claim found in the mountainous territory of liquid information.

But one of the benefits of this information age is the ability to seek out the truth. Not just simple relative truth, but absolute truth.  Not on a corporate level but on an individual level of effort.  Which is becoming the right and responsibility hopefully, of the individual.  Truth is still available to the individual if one will search and dig for it with diligence. 

Gone are the days of blind faith and trust. With so many players on the field, accountability is a luxury that accompanied honor, which has been replaced by deception and foolishness.

Honor and accountability? Is a fleeting character of truth looking for the shinning light.  My hope is that Honor and accountability will become that unusual beacon of the light of Truth that everyone is drawn to in times of despair and uncertainty. A beacon that provides for the needs of the people.  That light shines in the darkness, yet the darkness did not overcome it.  Gospel of John 1:5 (CSB)
