Buddhism and Smartphones

Buddhism and Smartphones

Do you find that modern technology improves or hinders your lifestyle?

Modern technology IS my lifestyle!!!

While I appreciate a great deal of Buddhist teachings, I do so mostly while driving. Right now I am up to lecture 21 of The Teaching Company’s introduction to Buddhist thought.

I find that I can have the body doing one thing (like driving) while most of my intellectual attention is doing something else (like delving deeply into Buddhist thought).
Providing what my body is doing does not require the use of language, this works very well – part of why I enjoyed fishing as an occupation.

Golf is one thing I do that requires total attention, mind and body as one, and the secret seems to be to use mind to give body a target, then to keep mind out of the way and let body deliver, without interference.
On the odd occasion that I achieve that, it works well.
