Social Media has shifted from “Should we use it?” a few years back to “How should we use it?” It’s moved from curiosity to trend to norm, an essential part of life for businesses, communities and individuals. I’m especially interested in the human dimensions of social media. Here are 10 spiritual advantages to social media in 140 characters or less.

  1. All Are Related- Social Media is turning six degrees of separation into 3 or less.
  2. Shared Wisdom- Giving starts the receiving process. It’s a sacred cycle.
  3. Law of Attraction- Be authentic, communicate clearly and you will attract the right people into your life at the right time.
  4. Authenticity- Present your highest vision to the world with every post, pic and personal interaction.
  5. Paying Kindness Forward- With every like, share, mention and retweet.
  6. Forgiveness- Social media is a creative rather than precise art, built for trial and error. Befriend the delete button.
  7. Presence- Spontaneous messages create intuitive flow of thoughts, feelings and wisdom.
  8. Brevity- Social Media forces you to hone your message to its essence.
  9. Consciousness- Think “out loud” in diverse circles that include easy feedback loops. Change your mind.
  10. Positive Energy- Feel the optimism when multiple people fill their feeds with positive and affirming thoughts.

    thank you Wayne. Great to meet you and see your work too

  4. Very interesting perspective has me really thinking. As I teach Social Media strategies one concept I teach is that givers gain. The more we share our wisdom, expertise, knowledge & the more we uplift others the more we get in return.

    Thanks, Ian. I’ve been using social media for years, now, and, personally, I find it an invaluable resource for keeping in touch with family and friends, both here in Australia, and abroad. Allthough some(not all, by any stretch of the imagination) of the religious stuff is a bit fundamenatlst oriented, quite a substantial majority is quite progressive, which I like,too.

    These are powerful creative thoughts about social media that I find provocative, meaningful, and helpful.
      I would prefer that you introduced it by saying here are 10 helpful and meaningful contributions of Social Media to The Evolving Helping Movement.  Calling them “spiritual advantages” just muddies the water.  What does a “spiritual advantage” mean?  I know you are locked in to people who are “spiritual but not religious” and therefore have to make that connection.  But focusing on helping and meaning are more generic terms and include everybody on the planet regardless of how they explain life.

    Fair point David

  12. neil says:

    ian,yes your right and the rules written above broken down in simple form are spookily exact and all the comments would be precisely what i would suggest to set novices off on the path of positive energy which is spiritually in my view divine and of heaven & whether a believer in a most high god/ultimate deity or not to me is serving the lord`s plan of what he wants us to do in our realm to do our best in bettering the world as best we can and it is light and cancels darkness and mastering it is the key to giving it`s gift to others and sets off a chain reaction and its power is doubled when it opens the mind & the eyes of the next then tripled in the next life onto being quadrupled and so on and so on & everybody involved in it anywhere in the globe even if they are alone just need faith that in time the difference that they are making which is only very small when they start as novices is potentially great in the long run because as they say knowledge is power but it doesn`t happen overnight.people who seek positive knowledge gain self improvement and quality people go places,well the most talented ones do anyway.
