    is the point of spacing out
    to create threads that don't make sense?
    -----------------

    A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
    A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    The point of spacing out is that to confine our attention to terrestrial matters would be to limit the human spirit.

    The point of spacing out is to avoid thinking about things that emotionally disturb you. Usually things relating to your sense of self esteem
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    I think it's good for your brain. It keeps you from being in a state of perpetual worry or excitement. It's your brain's way of making you go "om" without you actually actively meditating.

    Spacing Out and Spacing In

    By learning to space out at will, and come back at will, spacing in, is an important path to personal growth.

    For when we deliberately and systematically space out to follow our principles, we can grow as persons.

    For when we space out under the right conditions, we create a space where we are transparent and free. The perfect place to explore ourselves and explore the world.

    For instance, poetry, meditation and dance can be used to space out, but too often we focus on the words or the movements and don't let ourselves fall into the arms of ourselves.

    And we don't let ourselves fall because when we fall, we are vulnerable. And worse, being vulnerable usually makes others uncomfortable so they wake us up, and bring us back, all for our own good of course.

    The Saints of course are able to be spaced out and in touch with the everyday world at the same time. Saints are notoriously spiritual and practical at the same time.

    So rather than saying with false modesty, I'm no saint, we might say, I am learning to space out and space in at the same time like the Saints.

    Spacing out is good. Isn't it a natural response..for when you need a rest
    or something?

    Having said that, perhaps whatever it is that caused you the stress level that is the reason why you stress out maybe isn't ideal to have to deal with. Edit: But at least spacing out helps unless or until actively coping with the source of stress.
