Switched off the noise

Noise…there is so much of it now, that it actually has no effect.

There are gazillions of tweets, Facebook updates, Instagram posts, articles, blogs, vlogs, newsletters, emails and so on.

We hope that if we make enough noise someone will notice and project us into the limelight. We want things to go viral, we want to have millions of followers, we want everyone to know about us. The reality is no one cares.

It’s actually better to be genuine, to be heard by those who matter and they are small in number and they are the ones who will love our story for what it is, not like us because we’ll like them back or follow for a follow back.

Noise is about manipulation and the ones who you are trying to reach that might be interested in what you have to say have switched off the noise. Don’t be noisy be genuine.

Deception

Silence by Philip Dodson

‘Don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s raining’ a phrase that aptly describes what is starting to happen in the world today.

More and more people are becoming aware of the many false things we are told by the people we have been conditioned to trust. Starting to see beyond the facade that is the system, the established order, the so-called ‘trustworthy’.

We have and are so caught up in our minds and our day-to-day routines, that we are unable to see the reality, we remain in our subconscious. If we do realise, then often we do not want to admit it for fear of standing out or also we do not like to admit that maybe we were wrong in what we thought. Again our egos stop us from being wrong and keep us defending a position that needs no defence.

We are being manipulated constantly, but it is hidden in plain sight, it is so everyday that it has become normal and accepted without any question. Over time, it doesn’t seem out of the ordinary and anyone who questions is seen as weird, dangerous, extremist or simply wrong.

A possible solution is to remain curious? Be brave enough to be different, to be ‘weird’.

The mind and the collective mind is full of deception.
