I recalled when the world was much younger, matching my years; everybody was enjoying free will. The entertainment phase of that time boomed right when cable networking appeared. Food was splashed with msg and pretty colors, and the most addictive substance on the market, sugar, was sprinkled on and in everything. Folk were pulled out of nature and into their houses…to watch television…and eat. There was no such thing as recycling yet, and folk went wild with their imaginations; they wanted it, they got credit and they got it.
Nowadays, they’ve been “taught” to recycle their garbage and their beings; just throw away their feelings into the garbage. How else could they “protect” all they’ve acquired; even relationships?
Then came privacy and confidentiality. Privacy gives people a sense of hiding their THINGS and GOING-ONS from view of others. While confidentiality gives people a sense hiding the RESULT/CONSEQUENCE of what those THINGS and GOING-ONS have done to their/others lives. Anything from health, crimes,.habits, drugs, and even relationships and money (including lottery winners). It’s not all negatives.
Throwing away feelings throws away a sense of community. People have become just neighbors, and barely know each other; except to say hello should their eyes mistakenly meet. This is part reason why we who’ve been here all along, are coming to surface, are looked upon as “crazy” or “outsiders”. We say hello. We smile. We hug. We encourage. We notice. And noticing people, and giving compliments causes uncomfortibility—because feelings are stirred. Any heart-felt or spirited connection is abruptly disconnected.
Some of what happens in reference to trickery and formulating illusion on human minds, is sought through movies as entertainment; so they believe that if they didn’t see in the theater, on television or the news—“it ain’t true”. Humans are very suspicious of what’s not drenched in glitz and glamour and money.
In a music video I recently saw, a singer was drugged “into” buying a dream. Recalling my own experience, I thought, “Whew, I’m glad I didn’t do that!” So when I say I suffer because I’m determined, I mean it in the sense that I live in this world but not of it. I work for God. However, I can now easily see how that same statement plays out for the other team as well. I’ve had the opportunity on a few occasions, to have anything I can imagine, in this world. I refused every time. Because at the head of all in THIS world, is just man. I admit, I almost slipped up a few times, having had pen in hand, having been intimidated upon refusal. I’ve seen people I knew of here, over there, and I just think, “Just for THAT, she/he sold their soul??”
We feel tired sometimes being conductors “holding it together” for the sake of HOPING that ALL wake up soon. Now we’ve moved away from hope into FAITH; having increased numbers amongst ourSelves. Because we know the Light overcomes all darknesses.
