Trapped in a Paradigm
We’re a world in fear right now, perhaps rightfully so with the trends of conditions we feel helpless to change. It is a polarity paradigm, full of suffering. Is it by design or negligence in our own development? Is there a cross-over in fields of study, a synergy of discoveries and knowledge that we’ve missed somehow? Conversely, is there a happiness paradigm? The author’s opinion is there is indeed a virtue in contact that can impact our future in positive ways.
Our world has a convoluted past and severely limited present with the kinds of information that keeps us from moving beyond the separative notions that seem to keep us afraid, angry, ignorant and immobile in unifying our efforts toward a virtuous path. For some, it is obvious that this virtuous path does indeed exist and has been either ignored or purposefully obfuscated by those who are still in the command and control paradigm.
So many ‘experts’ are caught up in conspiracy and phenomena, leading us away from a concerted effort to become more self-aware and fearless toward our future. The concerns for our planet and people are real yet many, if not most, feel powerless to change our current course. “Be The Change,” still echoes in the memes and themes across the Internet.
Being the Change
How do we ‘be the change’ in the face of the relentless onslaught of misinformation and intentional distraction from a collaborative and cooperative movement toward harmony among people and planet? Too many feel the ‘harmony among people and planet’ is an incredulous notion we will never be able to manifest as human beings on Earth. To the contrary, there have been statements and inspired presentations of a ‘new age of enlightenment’ for decades.
Ufology has been an environment where money talks and bullshit walks in step with the would-be soothsayers who seem to just want to argue and discredit those who have had real engagement for most of their lives. This was hidden for years and with the latest NY Times article, a new realm of questions and unknown realities emerges.
In spite of the known issues in Ufology, countless folks have attempted to enter the fray with open hearts and genuine intention of serving a greater cause, which includes becoming part of a universal order amongst the stars as we evolve into a planetary civilization worthy of such. That just sounds like being a good neighbor. Would that lead to a happiness paradigm? Sounds pretty inclusive.
In a fairly recent interview, the Sociology of Ufology, we discussed the history of Ufology and the path it has taken via the promoters and presenters within the community. The same themes are regurgitated with different personalities over time, nearly all of which leave a skewed view of the reality many face. It is often, but not always, steeped in fear of the unknown rather than embracing opportunities to learn more about ourselves and the universe. It’s a prime example of the human reticence to explore.
I use Ufology as an example of addressing fact or fiction and the fear that emerges with the unknown. Perhaps it is a bit intensified in the ‘contact’ experience, as noted in most TV shows depicting abductions or contact. Is it really so. Is it just our imagination, running away with us? Most of our fears are self-created and never come to pass. So, if there is really nothing to fear, why not put your attention on what makes you happy? Work with that.
Talking in abstracts and theories delight some, though there is an objective reality for each of us. It is the one of our choice. The notion that attention, intention and action formulate the equation for how we experience reality is true. Where we put our attention, our intention feeds regardless of the focus. When we put our attention on what makes us happy, it doesn’t matter the environment or scenario, it is a practical choice. So, why not put your attention on what makes you happy, intend to follow through and take action toward that end? Experiment…
Of course if you have challenges in adjusting your mindset, that’s what a coach can help do. Specifically, a transformational coach assists in making the process enjoyable and practical. Many think there are secrets to self-awareness and personal growth. There is no panacea or secret, though we do keep things hidden because we aren’t thinking well. A conversation with a transformational coach, especially me, will expand your horizons and free your mind to experience greater happiness.
