365 Inspirations—361: Completely Unplugged

"The more ways we have to connect, the more many of us seem desperate to unplug."—Pico Iyer

Have you ever completely unplugged from all your gadgets for one whole day? How about 10 days?

Today is DAY TWO of my 10-day silent Vipassana meditation course. I've written many posts about Vipassana, but you can read more about it here.

This is a prescheduled post, so I wrote it ahead of time.

I'm out by Yosemite at the Vipassana center near North Fork, CA.

I don't have a phone or computer.

I'm without books and writing materials.

My life here will be rather simple.

I will meditate, sleep, eat and tend to calls of nature. That's about it.

After writing blog posts for almost 365 days straight, I am so looking forward to this time of being completely unplugged.

Have you ever unplugged completely for any length of time? How long?


  1. I don't have a problem disconnecting. If anything, all the junk from life tends to overshadow what's important and it's really nice to just have that down time. That quiet time. Sounds very nice right about now...

  2. I unplug from the world overnight, but rarely for long periods. People have interesting things happening in their lives, and I want to share them.

    This coming year will be the beginning of a more contemplative life. I don't know what that will bring.

    I hope you have had a wonderful time being unplugged!

    Blessings and Bear hugs!
