Following you up here in Inward Quest is a true tangible joy for me as I am from those who enjoy reading, as I feel words and letters, I chase the writing idea not just the core.
Lately I am having struggles while reading, in focusing, feeling the words and also the meaning, even in superficial reading where I might chase entertaining only, I am feeling that I can focus for second or third row then lose my attention and stop reading. During the last weeks I related that to my tiredness in my work but by time I am noticing that I am losing my interest in reading which I was fond about and was reading pages without boring in no time.
I admit that I am becoming more familiar to tapes and videos Abraham/Bashar. But I love site here and its components.
So did anyone face it? And is their a technique to refresh my reading mettle since reading is an important issue in my life?
Hi @r0la - Maybe it isn't you... maybe we just really are boring! LOL! Nah, I'm kidding. I know what you mean, I love reading so much, and this site sooo much, I hope I can always conquer that distracted feeling. You're not alone, I encounter this too.
I think that, for me, the answer lies in deciding what I truly value. Like meditating, eating right, excersize. In my opinion, reading in general, and reading here specifically, is just plain good for you. At least, I know it is for me, so I try to appreciate it.
One way I focus on things of value, is to think of these as the good old days. If IQ were to disapppear, I would long for these days. I try to enjoy every minute I'm here, every person. Perhaps it is about being fully present, mindful of the blessing it is to have all this wonderful information, and easy, free interaction with these good people, right here at our fingertips, whenever we want it. We are the first humans, as far as we know, to enjoy such a thing - it truly is something to treasure.

Let’s keep the good things alive! Yes…Take us back to the good old days Grace. There are so many distractions out there and press button entertainment at our fingertips. Things are changing so rapidly in this age of technology. We do have to decide what we like to do. There is nothing better than getting lost in a really good book…but there will be times when we just can’t settle to reading. I feel that there will be a generation in the not too distant future where children will not read books by choice. I can see it now in my young grandchildren where tv and computers play a large part in their lives. Parents are busy … life is hectic. IQ is a great site and altho there are many of us who don’t write in often, there is an interaction of thoughts in our heads on topics we can relate to. That makes us feel connected. Thanks to you all.
