Bro what the heck are you talking about, that's not escapism with out that...what you see right there, we have nothing on our side...

None of your will goes anywhere unless you transmit it... Knowledge is nothing without connection, it just takes the shape of a lonely mind that eventually ends up bent the wrong way.

OP

Great thread btw

great song too, always happy when a bit of positive music comes my way.

Every positive thread has people come to it that for whatever reason are like BLACK HOLES

Don't be discouraged by it.

Perhaps my eyes have grown more cynical with my old age. I saw a guy dancing, alone. Another came close, the original dancer tried to bond, in dance, to the second, he was denied. They both continued their individual, yet courageous dance. A third arrives, they are all together, but still alone. In a matter of minutes, the crowd is too numerous to count.

What I saw here was not the intoxicating effect of freedom of expression, or the contagious nature of joyous oneness with one's god.

What I saw was fear. In a crowd of maybe a hundred people, ONE man had the courage to express himself. Others, undoubtedly with unexpressed scorn or ridicule, would not allow themselves to be ostracized until they were joined by many more. No one wanted to be the weird guy. Finally, when enough people had become involved in the dancing, the risk to others of being singled out was minimal and they could join the celebration. Eventually, even at the end of the song, there were more racing to be a part of the experience.

To me, it was a great video, but I found it a little depressing. It reminded me of fads, peer pressure and dare I say, sheep.

I think the original dancer was either very high, very brave, or a very free spirit. With each consecutive participant, the level of 'buy-in' required diminished. As more people participated, the easier it was for others to emulate the behavior of the original.

It speaks volumes to me about the level of conditioning present in our society and the fear possessed by the vast majority of us. At what point in ANY situation, is the level of fear minimized sufficiently by the level of acceptance of others for the action, opinion, or desire for change, to afford the individual the courage, real or perceived, to join his brothers in the dance?

But the dance isn't at a concert exclusively. It's on the discussion boards, in the boardrooms, lecture halls, politics, life itself. Anywhere we join in numbers, the dance exists.

How many people must dance before YOU do? How many others must stare bravely at the scorn, retribution or hardship before we all join in the dance? How do we reteach ourselves to dance, even when we are at risk of being the 'weird' guy?

yeah you know...

there's always masturbating alone in your bedroom constantly putting everything positive down in life.

That's far more inspirational than a random collection of people deciding to dance...

let's just.... tear it apart as conformity and mimicry and refuse to see it for what it really is



"And when you lose control you'll reap the harvest you have sown and as the Fear grows the bad blood shows and turns to stone... and it's too late to use the weight you used to need to throw around, so have a good turn as you go down all alone, dragged down by the stone"

I added this video to my thread found here www.abovetopsecret.com... .

I think it fits nicely.

The idea is look at the amount of JOY one person can bring to an entire group of people. If everyone here set out to bring even a small fraction of this kind of joy to everyone they encountered, the world would be much better for it.


S&F ... Great thread.

Oh yeah, the Where in the World is Matt videos are awesome too. Deeply inspirational.

Per your statement, you have been justly denied.

One person full of joy can spread it to over 10,000 people. TPTB do not want this kind of thing, so if everyone purposefully spreads joy, then we'll all be happier.

When I go places I like to carry a light bulb in my hand. I get weird looks, but it always makes people smile.

I am allways the first one on the dance flor and the last one off...... nothing wrong with some people waiting...

practice makes perfect...if they free themseles enough by getting up there at ALL, one day they may be the first one too....

I even dance and sing in the grocery store... (though I DO live in a small town where everyone knows me already and has seen me dance and sing a million times out on the town anyways..lol )
