Recently I had a conversation with a friend. We were talking on Facebook and I realized this is something that I should blog about. #telepathynation #enlightenment #awakening
I spend time talking to people of all ranks and backgrounds.
Recently I realize that sometimes I enjoy talking to outside field workers more than I do, office workers. There are a variety of reasons.
The most prevalent one is: privacy. I’m still assessing which individuals are open enough to share my alternative life path. Not being the trusting type, I tend to be introverted, focused on observing people.
The other is energetic: Most people have ambitions to build financial wealth, get promoted, buy a home, have children, or retire wealthy. Being an old soul, I have learned and long stopped obsessing over these issues. I also sometimes sense that some people do not want to be fully actualized. They soldier on to get with their day jobs without making any changes. This leads them to carry themselves around with a “cup” half-full both in attitude and energetically. They would take the wisdom I’d see about them and do nothing with it. It’s like those mediums, who channel important messages from beyond, and the receiver only wants the answer to their inane question. Or worse, to make your broader observation fit their small reality.
People who are more in touch with Nature
Workers who spend time outside seem not only more #balanced but they are able, through their hair, eyes and skin, to take in Vitamin D and universal energy. As a result they seem to age slower than their office counterparts, and sport a growth mindset when it comes to knowledge and lifestyle of the more spiritually evolved.
Two individuals that exhibit this come to mind. One is my gas attendant. Prior to working at my local gas station, he held a middle management position in customer service for the gas company. On my weekly re-fueling trips, he would share stories about how you just don’t know what going on until you step outside the office. There is so much more people will share with you that they probably are too angry or frustrated to share over the phone or at the store. From that, he developed an excellent people sense and history of dealing with a variety of souls and their life lessons. You can sense a much deeper understanding from this man. We don’t need to share lengthy discussions with deeply philosophical memes or exchange ideas on spiritual literature. No, it’s more saying the profound things at the right time. This is a person who observes for a living and gets information directly from the source. The empirical data gives him a wisdom about people and life cycles that gives him a broader perspective on life, and one that obviously keeps him young and vibrant — even at 68 years old.
The other would be one of the FEDEX messengers. While noticing me watching a video on ancient yogic breathing, we started talking about aging and fitness. He even shared with me a new brand of #water called AquaHydrate. I learned something new about a drink, which is supposed to be non-flouridated, and thus better for your pineal gland. Surprisingly, he knew what that was and even knew about the matrix and societal brainwashing we have all been through. All that, and he delivers packages.
It’s all in where you invest your mind at leisure.
How much does the grey eminence really know?
So I stated on Facebook: The more evolved people really are not the ones you would suspect. A friend of mine commented in a very insightful way, which I will share with you.
He is a prodigious artist from upstate New York who has seen all ends of the New York City night life, from the lowly to very effete. He said:
“There is a quote I can’t remember who it was but it goes like this ‘what wisdom we have lost for knowledge, what knowledge we have lost for information.’ … Education in this country is misnomer.. liberal arts, English, history, philosophy, archaeology, Greek and latin, were the areas that taught people to think… Current things like business administration, even the law, are essentially the replacement of trade schools that taught plumbing and welding etc.. that is why you meet people with college degrees or advance degrees and they don’t seem to know shit… the truck driver usually knows his ass from his elbow and the MBA seems confused about that.”
Even though I’m not sure that is the cause, I agree with his conclusion. Somehow intelligence doesn’t equate with conscious evolution. Isn’t that ironic? Considering we should be using our smarts to survive, I asked the Universe why the smartest individuals are so steeped in such ass backward ways?
A few days later, the answer came in the quote above from the Internet and I began researching David Suggs and his content. An awakening, indeed, isn’t for everyone. As he writes, it’s more the aptitude for soul searching and truth that you will find Earth’s enlightened souls. There is some truth to that.
Most wealthy or outwardly successful people probably have no need to search deeper. Their ways have earned them material success. There probably is no need to look deeper if you are the accumulation cycle of your consciousness. We’ve all gone through this; that is the striving hard, the learning to be successful with money as the end.
But then surprisingly, from individuals who come from poverty to those who have come from privilege alike, once they attain their goals, it doesn’t seem enough. A top performing salesperson notes that his superiors don’t look any happier. A millionaire banker celebrates his milestone only to find himself miserable and alone in a prestigious ski chalet. What is it about these individuals that make them search for more?
Many point to emptiness as the leading cause of unhappiness. The soul realizes that there is vast amount it is not expressing, while mired in earning a living, and thus it begins to reflect upon itself, turning all things upside down in its search for meaning and continuous improvement of a less material form.
That really is the definition of evolution — that of consciousness; and while I don’t want to judge negatively, those who have not reached this point in their awareness, I do notice very clearly sometimes that the most intelligent are lacking in the wisdom of previous generations’ intelligentsia.
The other part of my answer came in an article about how our society is drugging our visionaries and prophets. From Earthchild.com:
“Were she alive today, Sylvia Plath would be on anti-depressants. Salvador Dali would be on anti-psychotics. Beethoven would be on Lithium. Newton would likely be committed as well as heavily drugged for his multiple, pervasive mental illness symptoms.”
Not to mention scientific geniuses, such as Tesla, Copernicus, etc. would probably need to be institutionalized. That, too, is how we treat autistic children. On a spectrum they vibrate differently with radically different skills but are geniuses on another level. The answers keep flooding in from Suggs’ daily posts. We honor the normal individual so much that we are willing to go on a witch hunt for the open minded, free thinking individuals who challenge society’s norms. First, on a community level; next, institutionally, next as a public health concern, making for mediocre solutions to world problems, and depriving us of leadership for this vastly challenging new world.
I’m writing this on the 70th anniversary of the mass genocide of the intelligentsia of my countrymen in Taiwan by the Chiang Kaishek forces. That was a forced movement, in which many geniuses were murdered. Now that violence has been eradicated in most First world nations, the warfare against the above average individual is conducted in a systemic, state-supported medical methodologies, from vaccines to pharmaceutical drugs. Just as with Taiwan, schools inculcate what the ruling elite want of an orderly society willing to consume all that it produces at an insane pace that profits the few.
Either way, increasingly more it is those who do not complete the college system or who educate themselves in esoteric sciences, that you find the more evolved.
That is just my opinion.
You probably have radically different experiences and can feel free let me know what you think.
