The Seeing Individual
Truth is neither heard nor read – it is seen.
I was brought up unconsciously in an unconscious time.
It was a “I know best and you do as you are told” time .The church said it, the government said it, the schools said it, the parents said it. It was a time of cliché wisdom on the benefits of conformity. And the dangers of being an individual.
“But…..” was met with hostility.
No one encouraged one with “Be yourself”.
Most of my generation blindly entered the limited space of their sightless mentors. Drugged with convention they lived a life of fruitlessly seeking fulfilment in empty society approval and missed living a real life.
The present ‘Information Generation” is fairing no better. The world is awash with information masquerading as understanding and awareness.
