Besides all this talk of 'one-ness' simply dictates a lack of individual spirit.

It is the quick path to a decaying of identity, and only the foolish would want to be classified as the same as everyone else.

It seems this pseudo-spirituality is aimed at breaking down our individual needs, whilst suckering us into a false field of unity.

Stay individual people, it is the ONLY way to survive. We are NOT clones, we are not sheep, we are people.

There has always been these people, but why they labeling them now, who knows. If i was you keep your mouth shut, as the world still is a rotten place for outsiders.

IMO, if the whole 'indigo phenomenon' is valid, these chosen individuals would be much more humble, genuine and sensitive than they come across. For the most part, I have found that people declaring themselves 'indigo' seem to be arrogant and not very spiritual, which should NOT be among the characteristics. I have found that most truly 'gifted' individuals are very low key and do not blatantly advertise their talents, nor are they the attention seekers we often see around here broadcasting their unprovable skills. This isn't to say that everyone that claims they have 'gifts' is being dishonest. I KNOW that there are a great many of us around here that have some inherent extrasensory ability. I just don't buy into alot of the individual claims that come across the forum, simply by the tone/attitude of the poster. I guess for many of us the BS antennae goes up pretty fast

Like I said, opinions about One-ness don't matter. It is what's there underlying all of reality. The only thing keeping everyone from seeing this is the mind and ego, both of which die when the body dies.

All we are, is a bunch of waves in the ocean, soon as we crash into the beach, we go back into the vastness we came from losing all sense of identity. Scary thing for those who aren't ready for it.

Scary for those with big ego's, that inherently we are all the same. That saying that you have one, but we all have ego's, simple cloaks and masks we wear while on earth.

Eventually you all will see this when you leave here. Most NDE's see the exact same thing. Self inquiry. Know thyself and you shall see that there is no "you"

Yes I would classify Indigo children as some new age movement,for people who need to feel special,it's a load of crap right there with global warming,what a hoot

The whole Indigo thing is just funny. Basically it boils down to: Do you think you are special? If you do, then you are an Indigo child!!!!

Wow...what a concept. Specialness. Who would have thunk it.





How can you tell if you are an Indigo?



Are you always searching for your greater purpose in life but feel like the world isn't set up for your kind?

Do you sometimes feel wise beyond your years?

Do you have trouble conforming to the ways of society?

Do you feel out of place in today's world?

Do you perceive the world very differently than most people around you?

Do you have strong intuition about certain things that most others do not?

Do you often feel misunderstood when you try to talk to people about what's real?

Are you a truth seeker?

Do you feel like you were born to accomplish a special mission in life?

Do you feel isolated and alone in your beliefs?

Misunderstood by family?

Do you feel anti-social unless you are with people of like mind?

Are you emotionally sensitive?

Did you have a difficult childhood?

Do you often feel disempowered by too much authority?

You can be One and Individual at the same time, your doing it right now.

The trick is to be mindful of the concept of One, whilst going about your normal business, the aim is to actually have the awareness of One and Individuality at the same time at least partially.

In regards to the original point, its a good one, labels of any kind are not helpful and far too readily applied these days. However people who have chosen to take the label onto themselves (not just Indigo Children but any label) need to come to understand that themselves, some labels can be positive, teacher, healer, but airy titles or something which binds you to an ideology is something to be wary of.

Isn't saying eveyone needs to be in "oneness" and then saying the next generation of children will be superior to us, contradicting yourself a little bit?

The whole Indigo/Crystal children nonsense is a lot of BS fabricated by psuedo spiritual people and groups who practically rape the ideas, concepts and practices of other cultures to make themselves seem superior, "special" and less of a failure than they currently are. Have you ever heard of the saying "all is vanity"?
It's a very profound and apt figure of speech.

I have yet to wrap my mind around the whole Indigo children thing... I don't think you are far off in your statements.

Baaah!

Seeing an underlying oneness makes you more accepting of other people's differences, and freer to be different yourself.

It's seeing people as utterly other than causes the fear and mistrust that underlies most intolerance.

Feeling unified with oneness means not bowing to anything. If god, or "the source of oneness" wants to boss me around, he/she's so out of luck. If I'm one with god, then I have a right to tell god where to go, and live by my own conscience. And the same goes for for any other manifestation of this oneness.

However if I see god as "other" then I am inferior to god, and probably should bow down and obey.

I agree. It's a bunch of foolishness designed by bratty children and the parents of bratty children to justify their horrible behavioral problems.

Anybody who genuinely believes that they are an 'indigo' and therefore somehow special should seek counseling immediately. Maybe you'll learn a thing or two about yourself, perhaps even the answer to why you need to identify as some sort of New Agey, metaphysical being in order to feel good about yourself.

Well if the Indigo Children see themselves as "oneness" why does it seem they think they are "different than everyone else" and possibly here to lead the other ingorant humans on the path of spiritual evolution?

Doesn't sound like "oneness" at all, but quite the opposite. Sounds like a heck of a lot of ego (or fragile egos that are overcompensating). Just as beginner Karate students think they take take on anything, beginning metaphysical types often believe they are destined to be "great teachers" for the ignorant masses.

Sonya I quite agree with you.
I was not discussing indigo children. I was simply responding to another poster's expressed reservations about oneness.

The most wonderful people I've known have been much too humble to think of themselves being special. They just quietly get on with their lives and do what they can for this world and the people in it with no thought of ego or reward, just because that's their nature.

Thankyou for your reply, and please understand that i was not bashing the truly spiritual, instead i was aiming my thoughts at the people who grow from other peoples gullibility.

Certainly, as many members have already posted, i too believe that there are many people who are aware and try to exist in a peaceful life style, and these are not the people i criticise.

However, there are also members of the 'spiritual community' who exist in their own dream of spiritual awareness, an illusion of spirituality born from literature and not life experience.

Thanks for your reply.

Mr L

It's difficult to understand. That Oneness already is there, its underlying all of reality. Some glimpse it for seconds, others eventually have it fully realized. Saying the kids of the future will have this more fully realized, doesn't make them better than us nor anyone else. Spiritual evolution at work

In reply to Kailassa,

If your one with God, then there's really nothing else to be said. You are that already right now, its just that thinking about it, the ego, the mind, personality, conscience all gets in the way of the simplicity and pureness of it being realized.

Fair enough my friend. No worries. Just saying, I'm glad I'm not born of literalism but of experience of what I discuss. I completely understand where you are coming from with those self professed guru save the world cause they just read a book types.

Indigo simply refers to an energy color in an Aura.

Any of the other descriptives - - such as Crystal - Rainbow - etc - - only refers to new energies "souls/beings" entering this world in human bodies - - that are more aware of their energies and may come from higher vibrations.

Separation - - is a physical term.

Good for You!!! I'm so tired of nonsense "I'm better than you" content filling these pages. I've noticed more articles with substanence(Sp) rolled of the screen due to vanity, and ego!!!

A flag, and star to you.

I dont know anything about this Indigo stuff, but I do know from what little I have read that IF it were to be true your response would probably be the common one.

Does the Op have an axe to grind with the Indigos? You know the term comes from the Aura these kids project. They are highly intelligent, and have no respect for authority figures, not even parents. They seem to know a lot more that they have learned or studied, and speak often of talking with other kids that the parents cannot see. I consider myself one, as are my two children. We have nothing against anyone else, and love everyone on the planet. We are trying to wake up the people to things they do not know. We are not a cult, nor a religious movement, and we have no agenda. We only wish peace on Earth and an end to war...we wish everyone to have enough to eat and drink, and for all children to have proper medical care. We are creating a new world with our thoughts, as everyone should be doing. You can put us down as a passing fantasy, that is your right, but we all send love to every being.


So you are some sort of Anarchist Utopian spiritualists? Sounds very much like a cult. I've met quite a few 'indigos' they were all fluffy and annoying. I'm a rebel so I must have powers! GO ME!
