Is there a place for handwriting in this changing time of progressive technology? Perhaps if we view both forms of communication with an open-minded perspective, we can perceive the benefits of both handwriting and technology when appropriately honored and valued.
It is time for us to let wisdom guide us in realizing the importance of handwriting in maintaining or sustaining us as waves of changes are happening. Through this art and science we can develop and/or strengthen character qualities that support us in being responsible and enlightened citizens of the world.
How well do we understand how handwriting can activate and/or strengthen brain/mind neurological patterns, functions, and activity which, ultimately, influence all of the physiology. Is it in our awareness that when we write with presence we can enlarge the capacity of the mind to create, explore, and receive intuitive knowledge?
Handwriting promotes focus, accuracy, attentive listening, and memory. It creates awareness of attitudes and encourages self-reliance. Confidence, motivation, effective willpower are strengthened as the mind is thoughtfully engaged with defined writing movements.
In writing, we are engaging the alphabet letters. What is our knowledge of these graphic symbols as channels and codes for universal wisdom and knowledge for all people and for all time? In activating those codes through attentive handwriting and a supportive alphabet system, we can receive the wisdom and knowledge that helps us to remove ourselves from the wheel of repetitive challenges. New doors of understanding and solutions are available for us to transcend these challenges through multiple channels. One of these helpful channels is handwriting. Learn about these channels in future articles.
