“I exist even when no one is looking at me.” This is one of the many enlightening conclusions Esther Emery came to in her year living without the internet. Determined to find rest in her tumultuous world, Esther decided the way to begin would be to detach from her online self. No internet, no social media, no credit cards. She would live in a world without the readily available GPS, without a cell phone, without any of the online contact that our generation seems unable to live without. Esther believed that the only chance she might have at discovering true rest, something she didn’t even think was really possible to attain, was to go to the opposite extreme of the world she resided within to find the balance. So, she cut herself off from a world dependent upon technology for one full year, not knowing exactly what she would find or truly what she was looking for. With this lack of understanding at the start, though, by the end, she ultimately found everything she needed.
How did she do it you might be asking? Or even why did she do it? Well, I guess you will just have to listen to find out. I hope that you enjoy my discussion with Esther Emery.
