See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil

The Tuned out self!

The Tuned out self!

We know so many people who just don’t want to deal with the messiness of other people and the world at large. Time and again friends telling us, I just can’t deal with this or with that. Sentiments such as these are responses to world events local and global. Instead they seek out!

Now all of us certainly need time off the carousel of life to recharge our often depleted psyches. Nothing wrong with this. However, when outsourcing yourself to another dimension the moment you feel you can’t handle whatever, it truly is a cop-out!

Our brain deadening culture wants us to do this so that nothing ever changes for the better. When we disengage we are allowing those negative forces that are engaged to run the show. If we don’t like what’s going on, we have to show up and work to change it.

We, too, have smart phones, I-pads, I-pods, kindles, nooks and what not at our disposal to use to zone out. But, at some point we have to turn them off  and engaged with reality.

All of us need to get involved and zone in. Use your devises to engage; e-mail your representatives, share with your friends, join groups working for positive change, blog, volunteer and get back into the world.

As yourself, are you doing all you can to make the world more livable for all of us?
