Most people around the world as more isolated then they were in the old normal. I know some people like it but I am not sure the realize the cost.
First, this is not just about staying home more. We’re also in a digital prison whether we realize it or not. Whatever you like or dwell on, multiplies. This is done for you. Heavy lifting on your part is unnecessary.
Unfortunately, your capacity to affect change in your life erodes. Your skills erode in your digital hall of mirrors. It’s also profoundly addictive. You’re the master of your world, seemingly.
I decided to write this because of my Chiron in Pisces post. My husband made a remark… he’s willing and able to make a remark; this is becoming quite rare. Real people will real insight who are willing to share. I understand why they’ve clammed up. I do this myself and I’m beat for it on daily basis – not fun!
So my husband makes this remark and it absolutely liberates me. Would I have got there without him? I don’t think so. The “prison” is too complete. It’s effective! We’re all set up to avoid anything abrasive or challenging. This is detrimental, especially over time.
I know I have Libra, but I really don’t think it’s good to avoid others. This made me think of my old posts about sin eaters. Some of those posts might be gone, I’m sorry, but the sin eater was cast our from society, which was the ultimate hardship. So now, many are convinced, life in isolation is the way to go. They’ve been influenced, I think.
Point is, I needed my husband to trigger me; to stimulate my mind and stir my soul. I am so often seen as a dark figure, I know this. I know I am shadowy, at least it may appear this way online. But one of the greatest gifts a person can give you is to wiggle the root in your psyche, you need to pull.
Should you be mixing it up, more?
