The Zen Of Mouse Pads

Mar 11, 2008
I know I can sound a bit eccentric, but anyone who has studied eastern thought, understands there is a "zen" to everything. What affects us we affect and vice versa. Everything as an energy, including mouse pads, cars, houses, and nearly everything that we use often. If it affects our lives, it is a good idea to align it with our own zen.

If we spend a great deal of time in our vehicle, we are going to shop carefully for a reliable, safe, and hopefully attractive vehicle. We may use it for business or pleasure or whatever, but if we use it a lot, we want it to be reliable. So we pay a fortune to satisfy our "auto zen". A Chevrolet may be perfectly aligned with our zen qualities or maybe a VW or a Mercedes. Each individual is different.

So buying a car is more than just buying a piece of metal with rubber wheels to take us places. It is a safe haven, like a moving home, in which we feel comfortable in it, and hence in our own skin.

What if we spent a great deal of time at our computers? Well of course we buy a nicer computer, and often with a good many bells and whistles to make it work hard and fast for us. We have a lot to do on this computer and often spend a bulk of our day on it.

So we look down at the crumbled up mouse pad in front of our thousand or even five thousand dollar computer. Why? Because we have not paid attention to our "mouse pad zen"! If you didn't think I had a few screws loose before, certainly now you do, but I am not being funny here.

Maybe you bought one for a few dollars, or are still using the one that came with the computer (not much better if any better), you are not listening to what your body and reflexes want. It wants the computer do to the work, not your arms and muscles and whatever else happens "when mouse pads go bad", and they do, often, if they are not very expensive; and quality is often very low.

In addition, our mouse pad need not be so plain. Why not have one that represents you? If you are a doctor, find a medical-oriented one. There are plenty of them out there that are funny and medical-themed. The same is true for doctors, computer persons, veterinarians, psychologists, farmers and ranchers, and everyone else.

For only a few shekels more, and well worth the price for several reasons. One is obeying their mouse pad zen, the mouse slides ever so easily over it, it is funny and keeps us in a good mood and positive while working, and we don't have to replace it all constantly.

I have my own collection from my own mouse pad store. I couldn't find a mouse pad that soothed my zen, so I created one online. And I'm glad I did.
