Expanding horizons or the same old rut?

New, spiritual views of life help us break out of routine and discover the laws of limitless progress.

Most youngsters delight in learning new things. I've often been amazed at how quickly they can adapt to electronic games and computers. Friends and relatives were amused when a twelve-year-old assured her grandfather, who had just bought a computer, "I'll teach you how to use it, Granddaddy." Although "Granddaddy" had only recently retired from a senior position in a large corporation, we all agreed that the twelve-year-old could competently instruct her grandfather in the use of his new computer.

For a long time I put off getting a word processor because I thought the benefits it offered would not warrant the time required to learn to use it. But increasing demands on my time made it clear that this was a useful tool I needed without further delay. And I'm delighted at the way it helps me day after day. (This in spite of the fact that I've had to lean heavily on the word processor's manual to know what to do next.) So I've found that children aren't the only ones who find it exciting to learn to use modern inventions.
