Alternative views

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.

Is the collective affecting you?

Everything will depend on which end of the telescope you’re looking down…it’s all just a view. But views take on a power of their own once we attach to them.

Perspective is uniquely ours and thus most things are just that, according to our mind’s perspective or en masse from the collective mind’s perspective.

If we choose to just observe without evaluation, free from our mind’s take on it, then we can simply enjoy the observation and see what is, rather than what our mind is telling us is.

Opinions, views, and even wars come from one person’s view being adopted by the collective mind. We attach to things that relate to our mind’s story and then they become part of our own ego and must be defended, literally at all costs.

The collective mind is now freely available 24/7 via our smartphone…we are all connected to that matrix. So the collective mind is even more consuming and powerful. We become it.

If we are brave enough, then we can simply switch off that collective mind and see what changes in our life.

Worth a try if you find the collective affecting you in any way.
