I had a gal mention her frustration with with how superficial our relationships have become, overall. Basically, people agree on very little, or so it appears. Consequently people keep all discourse, lite!
I suppose this is may be relieving for some. No one wants to live in a war zone. The problem is, just the little top of your skull is being stimulated and like it or not, skills of all kinds, degrade when they’re not utilized. It’s quite terrifying if you think of the affect of this on a deep level.
Scorpio is supposed to be about depth. Exchange of energy. If 4% of your brain engages with 5% of the other person’s brain, what is that?
To me, it’s akin to the conversation you have with the clerk at the grocery store. Dull and ordinary, but safe. The worst sex ever!
Now, real, regular people have nearly been eradicated from the internet. They’re there, but “de-boosted” until they no longer exist. This is true, whether you can see it or not. I don’t have a solution. I’m presenting this for discussion.
Real people are all around, in life, but they don’t leave their houses that often. I had another client, considering a move to a new state. She’s enjoyed, while traveling, some years ago. But she was smart enough to note, life today is not like it was five years ago. What good is going to live among “sunny” people going to do for you, if none of them leave their house, or let you in?
Five years ago, I has slews of people around here, once a week, at least. I’m talking about dinner parties, and groups coming together for band practice and such. No one does this anymore or if they do, it’s extremely infrequent.
I’m trying to think of a way to better conversations, but it seems they have to had, one on one. I mean, I try on this blog, as everyone can see. I do my best. But I feel people have laid down the bulk of their skills, to primarily focus on “saying no” and excluding other people. They just don’t want to foster relationships and goodwill and I ask myself, why?
I don’t know! The first thing that comes to me is they hate people, but that is generally self-hate. It’s personal!
In whatever case, what can we do?
