You got a partner on your wavelength!? You lucky pixie you!!
On a tad more serious note, I know exactly what you mean. It seems as though superficial life is more prominent than profound life. Even though every
person can probably talk about the same subjects in the same depth and share the enthousiasm, normally such a conversation would have to end in order
to get back to the soothingly mundane world. I did find a partner once who'd enjoy talking about 'deeper' subjects, but she would get really tired
pretty fast, as if it drained her to think deep in a uncharted way (although maybe it was just me tiring her
). I now believe most people are like
her, and possibly avoid these kinds of subjects because they do not want to be tired. On the other hand, I believe simply training this 'expanding
through thought' would end the tiring - it's just something they don't do, so they tire quickly. I guess. Not to mention they might not want to
entertain the possibility of life-changing thoughts - fear is a mindfreezer.
I've been able to collect some like-minded friends though - most of us don't really watch TV, read magazines - you know, 'popular' culture. I
don't know if that is a cause, side-effect, or simply coincidence. We do enjoy a lot of pop culture, movies and music etc., but most of it conveys
some kind of message or is simply thought-provoking. Ok, and on sunday evening we enjoy no-brainers
Not sure what I'm saying here, but like-minded
people are out there.
Maybe you could benefit from something like Mensa (www.mensa.org...
Supposedly, there are a lot of places where intellectual people can meet, ways to unite. Although maybe you meant something else with "no single
soul (other than partner) on my wavelength"..
About that wavelength.. I've found I can talk 'freely' (you know what I mean!) to people when I just stay away from subjects that are sensitive to
them. Most of them are perfectly able to discuss profounder things in life for at least a short period of time, and just to resonate with them for as
long as possible has come to be enough for me. The thought that resonating might extend their wavelength (along with mine) is a big silver lining as
Just don't give up on other people - it might be a lot tougher to resonate, but the ability to find the resonating spot remains important. Also, the
path to this spot can be very strange to us.. For instance, if I want to bring up certain strange processes in capitalism, I would use an actual event
like the economic crash. In that way, whatever is in the MSM is something you can talk about, because its already 'enabled' in people their minds,
and they may have even thought about it already.
To conclude, I suspect that to most people it's our thoughts are unimportant - because usually they do not amount to anything. Reflecting on
perception for example might seem essential to us, most people would say the perception itself is the important part. I don't expect this to ever
change, as a lot of people like a simple life.. Share simple joy with those, resonate intellectually with others - that's the best I got.
I hope you made it through my garbled post - it got kind of messy :] trying to rewrite while holding on to the content doesn't really work with a
weird headache. I may not have made any sense at all, but rest assured my intent was well ;]
