I think 'sheeple' is a term for someone you don't know, have never spoken with, but are certain they exist and are closed off to every
profound, progressive, challenging idea you have.
In other words, Sheeple do not exist.
It depends, of course, on how one personally defines what "Sheeple" means to them. According to your POV; I would have to agree that sheeple do not
exist. However, according to how I personally define it (which I mentioned in both my previous comments), I see them existing everywhere in the form
of "Daily Commuters" who are not living a fulfilled life.
In other words; Sheeple do indeed exist.
Also, I have never entertained or presumed
to understand what people do or do not know. I keep track of myself and only myself since my own
awareness (self reference) is all I have full access to. I also have never
been certain of others being closed off to every profound,
progressive, challenging idea I have had.
To project my own definition of what it is onto others reflects arrogance.
I think a lot of people grew up in loving families, have wonderful memories (the ups and downs), find their best friends are their siblings as they
grow older, appreciate their spouses/significant others when they need to be completely real with someone, and feel enriched for living an
ordinary life that is rewarding.
This is one of the many aspects that reflect the true currency of life that I mentioned in my earlier post that I feel should be invested
Relationships of all nature are key and also living joyously in the simple moments with others as well. Yet, it adds more to life when one can
experience even more abundance with loved ones that go well beyond the mundane.
I grew up in a very loving family. It was a foster home, but my siblings come from many backgrounds. They are indeed my best friends up until today
and forever. Kind of like the movie "Four Brothers" we are.
and feel enriched for living an ordinary life that is rewarding.
Anytime one feels enriched and finds life rewarding they are NOT leading an ordinary
life but an extraordinary
However, how one defines "ordinary life" is personal. What is an ordinary life
according to you?
But I admire people who take other routes in life, too. Like women who decide they will never get married or have kids, or people accomplishing goals
to travel and see all the places and the cultures.
I became aware early in life through silent observation that "Daily Commuters" usually do not get very far in being able to express their highest
dreams; so I decided not to succumb to that herd instinct. Common paths lead to common destinations....carving out my own path takes (took) me to
where I want to be.
I have friends who don't want to get married or have kids. I have friends who love to travel the world. I am like them as well. Yet, all that can
change. I have friends who have accomplished setting up a life of freedom
but still have the wife, husband, kids and all that jazz. Basically,
what I'm saying is:
You can have all of the above without compromising or sacrificing marriage, kids, etc. It doesn't have to be one or the other. Here, just to emphasize
I feel that anybody who believes they have to choose either
A) Feel enriched for living an ordinary life that is rewarding.
B) People who take other routes in life, too. Like women who decide they will never get married or have kids, or people accomplishing goals to travel
and see all the places and the cultures.
But, why do you believe it is one or the other?
Most of my family and friends seem to have all of the above without compromising.
Again, how do you define "ordinary life"?
