Homo ‘Distractus’

One’s capacity to disregard is easily as remarkable as one’s ability to see or hear. That’s what makes overlooking the obvious so easy.
In this age of ‘homo distractus’, of screen addiction and short term spans of attention, competing with the outer is a Sisyphean undertaking. It is the fundamental lapse from communion.
You return to your practice for an hour or two or whatever and then you relapse.
