When we allow things to happen to us without offering any different viewpoint, then we are agreeing with it outwardly.
Accepting what is and surrendering to this moment doesn’t mean outwardly agreeing with everything and allowing others to behave in whatever way they choose.
Accepting inwardly allows inner peace no matter what, there is no denial of what has happened. However, it still gives us the opportunity, from a place of peace, to offer our view which can be different.
We have a world where increasingly there is just one voice and anyone who speaks against it is to be considered dangerous and a conspiracist.
Those who accept this outwardly risk a great deal. We need to have alternative views and we need to be able to question.
I wrote the post below about 2 years ago or so, and it seems even more applicable today, where it seems that the human race is so unconscious in thought and so plugged into the collective mind that we are no longer curious at all. We blindly accept anything and everything without question.
“Fish Don’t Know They’re In Water”
I was listening to a James Altucher podcast and his guest used a great quote ‘fish don’t know they’re in water’. They are surrounded by it and therefore they don’t see it.
The monoculture that has seemingly and happily been adopted by the human race en masse in the global village that our world has become, has led most to not see the ‘water’ they are in.
This is the danger of not being curious, not questioning, accepting and complying with the one voice, the one picture, you become blind to the real world.
This creates a distorted society where some humans matter and some don’t.
Jump out the water, maybe you’re not a fish.
