We are by nature a sensitive species. Every last one of us. We learn through cultural conditioning to ignore and shut down what would be our highly sensitive natures — our birthright. The conditioning we learn from our parents and our community (and the TV and internet and mass media) further encourages additional habits that appeal to us in particular. School furthers the conditioning. Later we develop more habits to reinforce the conditioning and keep ourselves numb. We use food (highly processed and toxic and developed to encourage craving), drugs (both legal and illegal), alcohol, video games, porn, TV, internet, shopping and the pursuit of more, more, more stuff to keep ourselves numb to the lies we’ve been told since the day we popped out of the womb. Breaking away from all this runs the risk of being ostracized in a multitude of ways. And so most of us just keep at it and here we are today with epidemics of psychiatric “illness”, addictions and chronic physical debilitating illnesses of all sorts. Here we are today with a planet that is becoming uninhabitable for its many citizens of all species. We are a sensitive species who have forgotten who we are. We are killing ourselves. We must remember. Those of us who understand this have a responsibility to love those who are still in the dark haze…to love them the heck out of their toxic sleep. We have all been born into this and we are all required to turn it around.
It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society. – Jiddu Krishnamurti
AND yes, I could use some compensation for the many 100s of hours I’ve worked with folks over the years. Working like we do and not getting any sort of compensation that I might live more comfortably in the face of continued challenges continues to teach us what we’ve learned from psychiatry. We must not be worth it. Let’s change that patterning. If I helped you or a loved one out, please help me back now. thank you.
****We could use some financial support at the moment! You know, for things like the mortgage so that we can maintain a roof over our heads. Yup. I do this all for no other compensation than what the readers want to offer in support. Thank you!****
