Are You a Part of the Herd? … Or Standing Apart … and Just Trying to Be Heard?
Even if you have fully found your own authentic and distinctive voice … being heard these days can be especially challenging. ‘Herd behavior’ now runs as rampant as the once free-roaming buffalo … with only a few voices distinctly heard among the masses. If you feel lost in the crowd … and wonder if, how, or why … this seems to especially be happening to you … the truth is -*- you are far from alone.
Going unnoticed now routinely happens at many levels: 1) Near-instant ‘critical breaking news’ reduces ‘The Evening News’ to a mere recap and update of a select-few, already-known events of the day; 2) the few people who gain public attention are briefly showcased, elevated and highlighted … as notable winners, misfits, and even partial losers; and 3) new LinkedIn ‘Connections’ and Facebook ‘Friends’ are constantly added, yet few people claim to feel more connected … to more truly-close friends.
Getting and keeping attention is more difficult. Winning happens less, and attention spans are shallow and short-lived. Win or lose, well-intended or otherwise … our technology and quest to be more connected in life … has also left many feeling less noticed … less successful, less fully alive … and less connected — to others -*- and even to one’s life spirit.
Many who continue the struggle … go as unheard and unnoticed as those whose spirits have quietly shriveled. And the ‘biggest violators and complete losers’ who occasionally emerge … are clearly branded as ‘ill exceptions’ to the herd, and quickly dismissed, hidden, and discarded.. Good or bad, all in all, far more people feel left out, alone and even broken … than we hear about and acknowledge.
We continue to look to others for inspiration, validation, and support; and as this remains missing, we wonder … what has happened … why we’ve been left unheard, undiscovered, unfulfilled, and uninspired … and what, if anything, we can do. Progress that seemed doable in the past can seem nearly impossible now — leaving many to assume something must be wrong with themselves. We have collectively accepted ‘the competition game’ as our inherent required ‘path for life’; and few are stepping up to question this, change, seek, explore, try out, or champion other connected positive life pathways.
In the past we could do nothing, wait, or find something fun, relaxing or soothing -*- to prompt our inspiration to return. Now even these steps can fail to restore one’s spirit: The weight becomes heavier as the wait grows longer; what entertains is often short-lived; and what soothes us … can also continue … to drain the very life out of us.
A Senior Citizen Advocate recently described how this loss of life spirit often plays out among increasingly-passive residents in some institutions. As one’s life-directed actions lessen, life spirit silently fades; and lives become impaired and literally shortened. And while this ‘passive proceeding’ is already blindly leading to life-reducing and endangering consequences in such facilities, little is being noted about how this is also now happening at large … across human life. The growing loss of spirit is widely apparent: There’s more than a fiscal cliff ahead; and there’s little positive redirection … among the wandering human herd.
Beyond our quest to be competitive, we have also mistaken ‘what passively informs, entertains, and soothes’ as ‘what actively supports one’s life’. We are neglecting to actively nurture what positively connects and steers us -*- our own human spirit. This life-endangering ‘detachment’ is unknowingly happening at large. No protests, no demonstrations, no wake up calls … Not this time — Nobody seems to be saying much.
‘Staying actively involved with life’ has transitioned for many … to simply ‘being passive’. This leads to … less and less … championing of life. Our entire herd … including all who are wandering, unnoticed and ‘unheard’ … may be … nearing … a deadly avalanche.
Something more is needed now — to connect, guide, and support one’s life: Life is calling: The time has come to rally around ‘This Life Calling’. Active, self-initiated, well-intended, life-engaging, inviting, and supportive -*- ‘Nurturing One’s Ongoing Life Spirit’ -*- is now more than a self-investment or even a life mission: This is our life-saving answer -*- to own this ‘Calling for Life’ -*- and our shared opportunity to support and extend life as well*.
