What I like about ATS and related websites is that you meet a lot of people that think alike. I don't know many people in my immediate environment
who can have a conversation with me and actually stay with me on topics like this. Most don't even have a clue what I'm talking about.
I started to divide people into two categories: those who are aware and those who aren't. But aware of what?
It doesn't really matter...
I noticed that I've been dividing people all my life, as a kid I separated the other kids at school into two groups, I used to call them 'the real
ones' and 'the plastic ones', lol I'm not sure why I used this labels but I was labeling them already in preschool. When I look at my class
pictures from back then I remember who I labeled what, only now I don't see much difference between these children, however I did back then.
I guess I'm still doing that, using different terms now. Sometimes I would see a person and immediately know,' oh yeah, he/she is awake', while the
next person is obviously sleeping. It's a knowing, a recognizing, even without talking to the person I just know. Does anyone else ever get that?
I labeled my own parents as 'sleepers', but my mother has always been on the edge, always asking careful questions and never pursuing an answer.
Last mothers day something changed though....
Ever since my brother died, mom didn't want to celebrate anything, not her birthday, not mothers day... last mothersday I was on my way over there.
It didn't feel right to me to show up empty handed, but she requested that we bring no presents. I stopped at the mall, figured that I would pick up
a bouquet of flowers or chocolates, I wanted to give 'something'. But I walked right passed the flower store and into the bookstore and there it
was: a nice little book that covered a lot of spiritual topics, including the loa, the holographic universe, etc... all written for 'beginners'.
(I'm not sure of the title but I can ask mom and post it later). I bought the book and had it wrapped as a present.
She had an angry look on her face when she saw I bought her something, I told her 'mom, this one is very personal and just for you, you can read it
or put it aside but we are not gonna talk about it again today. She hasn't mentioned the book since then.
But last week I was in the car with her and I was complaining a bit about some things that went wrong, I said something like 'why did this
she replied "why don't you ask the universe?" I looked at her and she just smiled.. I thought "omg! mom is aware!" I guess she really did start
reading that book.. and actually gets it.
so, the aware and unaware... the awake and the sleepers, that's how I see the two main groups of people.
My own husband is a giant sleeper. He doesn't 'feel' the separation of body and soul and defines himself as being 'his body' and thoughts being a
product of that body.
I asked him why he calls it 'his' body? Because saying 'my body' sound like he is taking about an ownership , this is a clear separation of the
self and the body. Then he either goes blanc or Freudian. Sleeper.
My daughter on the other hand clearly states that she is 'inside' her body. Awake.
Does anyone else get that, That you see or talk to a person and immediately recognize in what group they belong? Is there a third group I'm
Or is this just insane?
Like I said, I have no idea why I'm doing this, but it's almost the first thing I look for in a person... always have been
