That Which Moves Me

Archetypes of Socializing

Reflecting on our understanding of socializing.

What do we generally think of when we say socializing?  We think of talking and interacting with one another.  But what is it that we are really doing from a broader, more objective angle?  The answer is in the definition:

1.  mix socially with others.  (this is what we generally think of)

2.  make someone behave in a way that is acceptable to their society.  (this is what we are actually doing)

Now think of the second definition in terms of macro and micro.  This is important because as soon as we think of socializing from the perspective of being a governing/control mechanism the perspective becomes reluctant to light up on the micro end of the spectrum.  Every word we speak to another person has the inevitable ability to influence them toward or away from one’s perspective, which can be called their personal society.   Now we can modify the second definition to fit a micro perspective of socializing:

2.  make someone behave in a way that is acceptable to their perspective.

This is not to negate the former second definition, but to shed light on both macro and micro perspectives of the word.  And being that the micro perspective is the one that effects us at a higher frequency, it seems to be more relevant to our general understanding.  Much of this may seem obvious but the point is to make it more conscious.

note:  Macro and Micro are always reversible due to relativity and perspective.  The governing/control mechanism perspective could be considered micro and the other macro.

There is also a flip side to this.  It does apply to one’s self as well.  We are the programmers of our own minds, though we demonstrate little awareness of this fact.  We may put something out there and if we receive affirming responses, that something will make it’s way into the more permanent seats of our perception of reality, even if we know that we influenced the response to our wishes through incentives or other tactics.

Now for the fun part.

Everyday self reflection with the micro understanding of socializing being an independent marketing campaign to spread your perspective to others and/or to influence/affirm your own.  And remember… Self image is the opposition to self reflection.  Enjoy!

Now is Never

We only experience the transition or movement of states, but we may never experience the current state.  Movement is the code of time and space and all that we can perceive here.

Now is a moment between memory and speculation.  It exists in a space that is nonexistent.  There is no time for now because all of the movement, which is time itself, will not stop in it’s path to rest a moment to allow there to be such a thing as now.  We are always becoming warmer or colder, older, taller, more tired, more energized, richer or poorer, happier or sadder, etc.  So, as much as we want to “be”, we can only “become” and all of the things/ideas we attach ourselves to will always come into reach for some time before going back out of reach at varying frequencies.  The moment when that attachment is halfway out the door feels completely different than the moment when that attachment is halfway in the door, even though, in that moment the state is the same, it is only the motion, the energy of the current state, that is relevant to our perception.  It is our attachments that create resistance to the motion which is interpreted as pain, fear and stress.

One of the most effective practices to reaching a more expansive perspective is to shed the conditioned normalization from our lens of perception.  See, as if for the first time until all forms before you appear alien in nature. 

Non-Linear Awareness of the Third Eye

With eyes closed

enable the Z axis

Fall from the known

into the unknown

where nothing is true

and nothing is false

where there is only the spectrum

of awareness and creation

and upon returning to X and Y

it is fully realized

that we are all blinded

by the compression

of our own will…

Listen

Everything perceivable is communicating with us

The ability to interpret it is our evolution.

Based on a True Story

The only relevant truth of any story

is the result that it creates…. true story.

Doing as we please…

There is a constant relationship between events in that, similar causes always produce similar consequences.  War must result in war, not peace…  Then why must we say this lower destiny is essentially benevolent?  If war must always produce war, then it is eternal in itself.  This, we do not wish to believe.

If every mistake we make results in a catastrophe from which we have learned nothing and about which we make no thoughtful consideration, then the viscous cycle of circumstances will go on indefinitely.

We like to hope that we can do as we please and that all will come out well.  This is possible only in a person so enlightened that what he pleased to do is the greatest good for himself and everyone else.  Until this is the basis of his pleasure, pleasure will alternate with displeasure down through time.

It is loss you seek, not gain.

It is not words that will be the catalyst for your transformation. It is not logical or strategical thinking that will bring you to clarity. You need nothing beyond what you already have. It is just that what you already have is blocked by what you have defined. Reboot your mind…

Beyond Approval

Look far past the approved truths. Approval often means it suits a motive.
