Facebook: A Multi-Dimension Zoo

It has been prophesied that humankind is awakening to its true nature as multi dimensional beings.

Beings of light that have been constrained and restrained and trained not to know their true nature, we are slowly becoming aware of our divine nature and the divine nature of all that is. We are becoming “homogalactus” or “homodivinicus”. We are shifting away from the thought that we are humans evolved from apes, to hue-mans… evolved from light.

Interestingly, it appears as if social media has played a large role in latest part of that evolution. However, Facebook seems to now be the equivalent of people watching at the zoo, except admission is free, parking isn’t a hassle, and no one is stepping on my shoes.

I get to see adorable children and animals doing funny and amazing things. I get a little inspiration, and every now and then, I even get to see people arguing over their interpretation of current events.

The truly amazing thing though, and again, this is just my opinion, is that random funny videos and pics aside, everyone seems to truly believe in what they are sharing, regardless of their political, social, or spiritual views.

In 50-60 years from now, when kids are using it to mine data for their “social media history” class, I wonder what they are going to think when they see that we were some of the meanest, cruelest, misguided, callous, and uniformed people on the planet, and simultaneously some of the most hopeful, humorous, compassionate, and caring.

I hope they see that we were all doing our best, and maybe… just maybe, see that while we were slow to rise from our waking dream, we realized early on that it doesn’t really matter what we share, it’s the sharing itself that makes a difference.

With that that though, I must say, I’m not going to the zoo everyday anymore.

Instead, I think I’ll take my dog for a walk and continue to try and wake up from this dream… a dream of contrasting truths and subtle fictions. For me, Facebook has served its purpose, and it has served it well.

If Facebook is any indication of the collective consciousness in America, it appears as if we are quickly trying to resolve our culture of separation through a drone of non-stop sharing and commentating that is bringing some kind of non-homogenized yet unified field of awareness closer and closer through a incessant torrent of “likes” and “shares”… a place where every color is seen with the awareness that regardless of what we see, the truth is known that all is light.

Comprehending and Dealing with “Selling” Syndrome

In this post I’m going to discuss a frequent and common problem that happens to many of us once we start to wake up to the truth of the reality that we live in.

I call it “Selling Syndrome”, or “Come With Me! Disorder”.

SYMPTOMS

It usually happens this way.

“Person A” reads a book, or blog, or watches a film that profoundly effects them to the point of making real changes in their life. In the midst of making those changes Person A reaches out to their friends, family, and pretty much anyone that will listen, a.k.a. “Everyone ELSE/The Public”, and begins to tell them about this GREAT NEW WAY of seeing and experiencing the world and how THEY SHOULD JOIN THEM ON THIS INCREDIBLE JOURNEY.

Person A tells Everyone how great it is, and how much better the world would be for Everyone IF THEY WOULD JUST DO WHAT THEY DID!

The Public, being very accustomed to being told what is best for them, look at Person A and their eyes glaze over. They listen politely until person A is done “Selling” them on whatever epiphany they had, then they go about their way. Sometimes, Person A will encounter someone that actually listens and then a few different things usually happen.

They tell Person A, “I knew that already.”

OR, they disagree with Person A which causes even more turmoil for Person A than The Public not listening.

OR, they label Person A with whatever convenient term they think applies to him/her. Common labels are: “conspiracy theorist”, “new ager”, “kook”, “Jesus freak”, etc.

The reason this is happens is two-fold.

Person A is excited, energized, and enthusiastic about their discovery AND SINCERELY BELIEVES THAT THE WORLD WOULD BE BETTER, if Everyone would just _______.

CAUSES

Another reason SS/CWMD occurs is due to our cultures predominant exercise of looking outward for validation and verification of an internal truth. We have been told that our external world is a reflection of our worth, therefore, it’s only common to WANT OTHER PEOPLE TO RECOGNIZE OUR GROWTH.

How else can we be sure that’s real?

It’s kinda like going to the gym or exercising regularly. At first, no one notices the changes taking place. YOU KNOW CHANGES ARE TAKING PLACE because you are sore, tired, etc… Yet, no one can see it.

After a few weeks of consistent exercise, people that know you may notice a difference, but, for the most part, the world doesn’t respond any different to you.

After a few months, the people closest to you cannot help but remark on how you have changed AND NOW THE REST OF THE WORLD SEES YOU AS A FIT AND LEAN PERSON. The rest of the world had no idea what you were like before you started working out, they just think that YOU’RE IN REALLY GOOD SHAPE, and probably always have been.

Internal, spiritual, and cognitive shifts are perceived in a similar manner.

When we find something we really like, it’s only natural to want to share it. The problem though is that UNTIL WE INTEGRATE THE CHANGE INTO OUR LIFE COMPLETELY, no can believe us.

We look like out of shape people telling Everyone how great working out and going to the gym is.

TREATMENT

Treating SS/CWMD is quite simple.

Read that again. Note that I did not write EASY.

There is a difference.

Treating the disorder requires an understanding that while the event, truth, realization that you had is valid, true, and poignant for you, IT MIGHT NOT BE FOR EVERYONE ELSE… RIGHT NOW.

A friend recently put it this way,

“…we are all taking different routes, to the same place.”

It’s totally normal to be excited and and enthusiastic. Real growth actually REQUIRES that type of energy behind it. We don’t need to convince Everyone else though. They are already on their journey.

If they look at you and notice a change and ASK you what you’ve been doing. By all means, share, inform, inspire! There’s nothing wrong in trying to educate and inform. People make entire careers out of it.

The difference is found in the gap that exists between TALKING about something, and actually DOING it.

I like to say that leading a horse to water is a kind and generous, life sustaining act… anything beyond that though is just talking to the wrong end of the horse.

SUMMARY

We all want to change the world for the better. That is a great thing.

The change will come from DO’ing and BE’ing the change. It can feel isolated and lonely at first, and that is because we a literally between two worlds. Once we fully enter the new world we’ve carved out by living our truth, we find “like minds”, and often “family” that we never knew we had.

Yes we need to talk and get the word out, that is important.

If we change ourselves though, with consistent practice, sincerity, enthusiasm, and excitement, we won’t have to sell anything though. People will be lined up asking how they can get some of whatever it is that we have.

At that point, it’s not even selling. It’s simply offering.

And which do you prefer? To be sold something or to be offered something?

Now…
