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!

I Write Words to Destroy Words

I write words.

These words are interpreted with the meanings attached to them.

What are the meanings of these meanings?

Are they ideals or concepts that are relative to a specific understanding?

Can we only get so far with the words before we end up right where we started?

The more words we use the more complex it becomes.

The more complex it becomes the more blind we become.

Definitions are a narrowing of potentials.

Repetition is the formula for conditioning.

How can I use the words against themselves?

Would they ever betray each other and sacrifice their riddled intentions?

We just want to convey a sense.

The words are our tools and we trust them to be sophisticated.

No need to use any other means to convey the sense.

No need to try to interpret a sense not conveyed by the words.

Each time we use the words our sense becomes more and more relative to the words.

We feel that in order to make sense our sense must agree with the words.

The words do not work for our sense, our sense works to appease the words.

We spell the words out but the spell is on ourselves.

What happens when we perceive without the words?

… Clarity, beauty, simplicity, sense…

I write the words to destroy the words.

At First Sight

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.

The only relevant truth of any story

is the result that it creates…. true story.

Medication for the Collective Psyche

Image

Sometimes i think we already know what is going to happen, we just don’t admit it.

When considering the many states, regions, and internal conflicts of an individual mind, and considering what is self inflicted, we can see that the same applies on a collective scale and that we are collectively self inflicting this process by what we allow, nourish, believe, follow, support, etc., just the same way it happens internally with an individual.  The mind has many facets, all with purpose but it is the collective appropriation of all facets, whether perceived as good or bad that will create a healthy collective psyche.  We can enforce all the laws we want, but it is like psychiatric medication, it will do more harm than good on a potentially healthy mind.  The real law is what we mirror and reflect to each other, just like mirror neurons, which shows us where the true power lies. 

The problem we face right now is that we are dependent on enforced laws/psychiatric medication to regulate our collective psyche to operate how we see fit.  We do not believe in ourselves.  We do not believe that we could become capable of becoming non-dependent.  This is addiction and it is extremely hard to overcome.

Insight, Outsight and the Art of Perspective Traveling

Image

Step outside of society and the constructed reality that confines us.  We can not see what we are inside of until we step outside of it.

A micro organism can not see if it’s environment is just a part of another larger organism by looking outward from within.  By perspective, it is nearly impossible to do so.  As humans, we have the same problem while we look out to space for answers.  The good news is; that is outsight and the limitations that apply to outsight do not have to apply to insight.  We can travel through empathy in order to gain new perspective and new insights.  Not only can we see through other known perspectives, but we can even see through unknown perspectives to some degree.  For example: We can imagine how we would perceive our world as if we were not from here.  All of the things which are normalized to us become fresh to our perception and we see, not as a citizen or member of society, but as a conscious being.

We have been inside, gainfully employed, educated and groomed since birth to be a part of this way of life.  Everything we perceive is through the lenses of our inherited perspective.  Everything perceivable reinforces and affirms this reality.  As long as our perspective is inside this bubble, it will be all that we know and we will be completely dependent on the managers to provide us with virtually everything we consume and believe in order to maintain this bubble of reality.  Our logic will be based on protecting this bubble and we will not empathize with any perspective that would potentially threaten it.

Understanding this difference in perspective allows us to gain awareness of our options and a truer sense of freedom.  In realizing that it has been a choice all along to maintain and support a constructed reality, we find many moral implications to the choices we have unknowingly made inside the bubble.  We may now truly see the logic in self empowerment and the confinement and moral repercussions of dependency.  

In conclusion; our outsight is limited by our physical senses and capabilities while our insight is limited only by our own personal will power and empathy.  Using empathy we can step outside of any situation we may find ourselves in so that we can see ourselves from an objective perspective which is not wagering on anything, but only receiving clear unconditioned awareness.

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.
