Wake Up and Realize the People Around You, Are People Like Yourself

By Jesse S. Somer

Most people in the world these days are living in cities, some upwards of 30 million individuals as in the case of Tokyo, Japan. Chances are you are in a city right now, as this type of living has become the prominent choice for those of us on Earth, especially in developed countries. That is not to say that there aren't many other ways of existing in our world, but for now this seems to be the structure that we adhere to. In tribal times we lived at one with nature surrounded by trees, plants, and animals within a close-knit community where everyone was very familiar with everybody else. Now, we are still surrounded by aspects of nature, but it is the people that mainly represent the living energy around us in daily life. One imperfection that I have become aware of within this social scenario has to do with how humans now see and treat each other.

O.K., you are surrounded by people in suits and business attire rushing to get to their jobs. There are so many faces that admittedly if you tried to take the time to connect with all of them you would either go crazy or be completely drained of all your available mental energies. However, we have reacted to this situation in quite a questionable manner. We have begun to treat each other like we treat our livestock, (also a questionable relationship) as if we are just a mass of faceless, nameless bodies. In many moments of our modern technological lifestyle we are now being faced with the prospect of talking to machines on phones, being referred to as a customer number rather than our given names, and having conversations with each other that are totally devoid of all real meaning and caring.

Take for instance the last time you bought groceries at the supermarket. You stand in line, a sheep being let out to pasture. Finally it is your turn. You stack up all your food (energy source) on the conveyor belt and the checkout clerk "beeps all the items with their magical laser that will tell how many energy credits (money) you are to trade. Now ask yourself honestly, how often do you speak to the cashier? Not just, "Hello, how are you? to be polite, but really speak to them as fellow human beings, fellow spirits with dreams and loves like your own. How often do you see these people as equals, as creatures of the same form as yourself, made up of exactly the same light energy molecules? How often do you realize that they are a person that deserves respect and attention as much as any other family member or friend that relates to you in any moment of your life?

Why have we lost this act of recognition for our fellow beings, our human family? You'll probably reply that we are too busy to think about some "stranger that seems to have little connection to our goals in daily life. The checkout line for you is a place to contemplate the future, think about tasks that need doing, and find solutions to problems that need taking care of. Who cares what that person we don't really "know thinks of us?

This brings about another challenge that I don't wish to talk about too much right now, (maybe next article!) and that is the fact that we are rarely totally conscious in the present moment. If we truly understood the significance of every moment and every person we interact with in our lives, we might start to see life as something special and magical-even in everyday situations, and the idea that every moment we have is an opportunity to learn more about the world and ourselves.

It is time for us to once again realize that every person we come into contact with is another individual, not exactly the same as anyone else in the world. I'm not saying we should try and talk to each and every soul that comes within our body space. What I would like to experience is attentiveness by my fellow humans that involves doing the best we can to treat all who we do come into contact with real sincerity.

If we want society to evolve to a state where our systems of interaction cause good feelings instead of dread and frustration at being treated like something of little worth, the time has come to realize we are all human, all together, and each different and special.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
