Zen Gardener speaks on apathy, societal controls and behaviour conformity among a vast majority of the American population. He encourages those who can, to help people wake up.
As many wonderful Americans as there are who have snapped out of the trance and are doing fabulous things to awaken and empower others as well as expose the truth of what’s really going on, I’m dumbfounded at the willful abject ignorance, consumerism, apathy and shallow selfishness of the vast majority.
All I need to make my point is the following video. Many of you have no doubt seen some of Mark Dice’s “man on the street” surveys, but this one takes the cake, or should I say bar of chocolate – this time over a 10 oz. bar of silver bullion currently worth $150:
I rest my case.
As powerful as it is and perhaps he does this in some manner I don’t know, but it would be great if he handed people an envelope for them to open later with an explanation of what just transpired. It would be eye opening and helpful for them to know that they just passed up a silver bar worth 150$ right in front of a Coin and Precious Metals Exchange shop and they could have waltzed in there and redeemed it – or better yet kept it for when the dollar turns to dust.
Still, the entranced ignorance is stunning.
Don’t Give Up Trying
It only takes the right conditions, some initiative, and a little wisdom to get someone started on, or encouraged along, the path to awakening on any and all levels. Never give up trying, but do definitely avoid the full, frozen cups and armored souls who will just waste your time, suck you dry and discourage you.
Learning to find that introductory opening is a bit of a skill but it’s learnable. Dropping hints, being honest but not brutally, speaking up instead of going along with what you know is wrong, all lead to finding those who have a hunger to know what’s really going on and are starting to get it.
It can be extremely inspiring, and as I’ve often said and many have found out, there are sincere, open, receptive and massively awakened people everywhere. Just don’t take things at face value. The societal controls and behaviour conformity is so strong it’s easy to do that, but it’s wrong and very misleading.
This goes for anywhere in the whirled. It’s a way of life. Another really cool thing that happens is you become known for your perspective and those you’ve touched will often refer people they think would be receptive to what you have to say, either to you or suggest you contact them even when they themselves don’t agree with you but like you and your sincerity.
Passing It On
That’s how it works. One interaction at a time. Then if you also write about it in an article or on a blog or website or post it in social media it reaches that many more!
People talk about paying it forward, but what more profoundly empowering thing can we pass on than the truth?
Keep on keeping on. You’ll encourage the heck out of yourself the more you respond and engage in this. And the rewards that come from helping someone along the path are immeasurable, both for them and yourself and an endangered world in constant flux that needs all the vibrational uplifting we can help facilitate.
That’s a win win and win!
