Recently we took a look at the phenomenon of ‘waking up.’ As well, as part of an ongoing theme, we’ve made it a point to get input from all of our guests on this idea of a global awakening taking place right this very instant. I wanted to take a closer look, as I think we’re beginning to see some pretty interesting dynamics.
Anyone who’s paying attention can see, and it’s a point we’re trying to illustrate here at Vibin’ Higher, that there is certainly an awakening of sorts happening across the globe. I believe that it’s happening at an exponential rate, and will only continue to grow. I see conversations being had on social media that I might never have expected only a short couple of years ago, and by people who were at one point just as firmly unaware as one could possibly be.
You see it everywhere. A popular forum that I’ve been frequenting for some years now has proven to be a great place to get a pulse on the status of society’s awakening. A sporting forum that offers an off-topic board, there are people from all walks of life, all ages, and located across the globe that converse there on a variety of topics. Issues that used to be marginalized with a dash of ad hominem attack, like fluoride, the Federal Reserve, or 9/11 truth, are now genuine concerns for a large swath of the population. The minority on a lot of these topics has become, somewhere along the line, the overwhelming majority. And it’s not only an internet phenomenon. More and more I’m able to have these conversations in day-to-day life, without even bringing them up myself.
Conspiracy, so to speak, has become more or less mainstream. And if it’s not that, it’s spirituality. Or food freedom. Or freedom in general, people have become restless and discontent with the way things have been going for all of us.
So, while our numbers swell, and perhaps to some sort of critical mass (100th Monkey Effect, anyone?), something curious seems to be happening.
The non-believers, the debunkers, usually found at the projecting end of those ad hominem attacks we spoke about, are digging even deeper yet into their positions. Flying in the face of not only this very visible global awakening, but a growing mountain of evidence to our favor, there’s groups of people that seem to be doubling down on their bets that we’re all making much ado about nothing.
The debunkers love to pathologize. To tell us that we’re crazy, or that we’re just too bored with the reality of things, so we buy into all of these grand conspiracies to spice up our life, or something. But I pose a question, what quality must one possess to write off everything going on these days as mere coincidence, or worse, as not even being real? It’s surely not a quality I want, and if you find yourself reading this article here at Vibin’ Higher, one I’d wager you don’t have either.
The proverbial lines are drawn, and fairly clear, though I don’t think they’re the be-all end-all. As I’ve said, I think this global awakening will continue to grow in its scope, and in an exponential manner, no less. So, it’s not that the lines can’t be crossed, but only that the more stubborn ones are retreating further and further into their position.
What can we do? Continue to spread what you’ve learned. Every little bit counts, and you never know what tidbit of information it is that you bring to the table that will pique someone’s curiosity and send them spiraling down the rabbit hole. I used this quote in the Waking Up article, but I think it speaks to our situation beautifully…
Speak up, speak often, and don’t worry about those that at this point cannot understand, as they can never un-hear what we tell them.” -Ron Paul
