Sometimes changes mean that we need to steer our path towards some things meant to be included in our lives and to be remembered as important in our lives, and sometimes, it might also mean that its time to turn away from choice others that aren’t quite serving us well any longer.
Recently I made the very difficult decision to turn away from facebook and its influences if at the least for a while.
I’ll be open about it all. After a long and deeply introspective period of thought and meditation on this, I came to decide that facebook was starting to weave its maneuvering way into my unfolding path in adverse ways and when such matters of my life also begin to influence those most crucial of my relationships, its time for such a so-called social network to move its way into the sunset!
It really is a fascinating thing you know, how such an imaginary virtual world of the machinations of technology can to begin to flex and manipulate its way into our thought processes and our feelings up to and involving those relationships and the things we value most!
I recall some passages I’ve read from persons who for their own reasons departed from facebook choosing to head to others instead. I now can “relate” as Dennis Hopper used to say in 1969!
What I found myself most concerned with aside from the preservation of my own dearest of friends and family who I had remained connected with there, was the potential loss of producing and furthering a positive message out to the world!
I still have and will retain active connections on other networks and websites, namely Twitter, LinkdIn, Tumbler, Instagram, my own website www.wdallan.com and others where I still am able to keep my expressions active, a bit reduced for certain, but still getting out there to the world.
I simply found myself constantly weighing the immediacy of facebook’s influences and commanding expressive power against the influences it seemed to be both creating and also beginning to hinder within myself. I have a path that is insisting upon my attention now and included among my major goals is getting myself down to my new home in Salem as well as to finally get my books published!
For these reasons, after investigating facebook’s help section, I settled upon the choice to “deactivate” my profile instead of permanently deleting it.
Never burn a bridge you may one day wish to turn back toward again it’s been said!
I have met many incredible souls on the pages of facebook! From America to Britain, Ireland, Germany and throughout Europe! From South America to Australia and to the East, facebook has introduced me to good and powerful souls and for this reason I found myself unable to wipe it entirely from the future possibility of my path!
I simply at this moment cannot allow the pages of facebook to stall either the critical importance of the work that lays before me and nor can I allow it to alter the strength of how I feel about those who are most important to me in my life!
Priorities are priorities after all.
I heartily apologize to any of you who may have searched for my facebook profile and found it gone!
Please think of it this way. It’s not gone for good, just on an extended hiatus while its owner gets some very needed work done!
More than anything else…
I want to THANK YOU FOR BEING MY FRIENDS THERE!
I value you in my life more than you could ever know!
All my love, light, and the brightest of all blessings to you!
