the fundamental interconnectedness of all things
Crowd Psychology dictates that everyone in a group tends to do the same thing at the same time ~ whether on not an individual member of the group intended to act in a certain way, crowd psychology means that they will follow the herd. This applies to people watching sports, people fleeing from disaster, crowds of protesters, and mobs of rioters. It even applies to groups of friends sitting around shooting the breeze. Crowd Psychology also applies to herds of buffalo, flocks of birds, shoals of fish, and swarms of bees. And today, wherever you are, whatever you are doing, awake or asleep, you are part of a group / several groups. Instantly connected to the entire world by TV news, social media, video chat, email, telephone, and the spiritual energies of the infinite shared unconsciousness….. You are never more than six degrees of separation from every other person on this planet.
My strongest spiritual / religious belief is in the interconnectedness of all things, that everything and everyone is connected through space, time, and their life energies. This is a universal concept and explains many things ~ like why we say to those that we care for; ‘you’re in my thoughts’, ‘you’re in my prayers’, ‘I love you…..’ It also explains the Titanic Disaster, 9/11, The Great Depression, Wars, Black Lives Matter, and the public outpourings of grief at the death of Princess Diana…..
Here’s the thing. During this COVID-19 pandemic the feelings and thoughts of us all, the news media and interpersonal communications have mostly been negative. Turn on the news and I get the number of coronavirus deaths, the rioting and violence in big cities around the world, the tales of personal tragedies, opinions on the economic doom facing us…..
This affects us all because of the fundamental interconnectedness of all things, group psychology, and the universal unconsciousness. No wonder so many people are unhappy, depressed, distressed ~ without really knowing why. It explains the weird and negative things happening today, like the protests and riots, why our politicians and others in authority are suddenly being exposed as liars, charlatans, adulterers….. Like why our Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s personal popularity rating has crashed by 45 points, going negative for the very first time.
And yet, amid all this negativity a few have risen above the herd and shown great personal courage and goodness. One needs look no further than 100 years old Captain Tom Moore’s gallant fundraising effort for our National Health Service. Captain, (now Colonel), Sir Tom’s efforts raised £32, 795, 065, and inspired a nation.
Some say we should stay safe, stay at home, obey lockdown, be afraid. And, that we can’t have fun, can’t go anywhere, can’t have sex. All I know is that I will not add to the negative spiritual energies flooding the infinite shared unconsciousness.
among his other honors Captain Tom was granted a flypast by a Spitfire and Hurricane from the RAF’s Battle of Britain Flight.
