Many males get impressed with their pseudo wisdom of acting as if they are the last word on a subject and usually without first hand knowledge! This behavior gets revved up when the talk is of conscious matters of life. Walking the talk with demonstrated proof of the talk is a whole ‘nother ball game that separates the ‘talky talkies’ from the real ‘McCoy’s’. It’s been said, ‘talk is cheap’, and give a man a little ability to gibber jabber and the ‘bull’ flies. (Let it be said that it’s a different jibber jabber form from ‘gossiping’ – if you get the drift!).
The world’s mind has been controlled by males who put themselves in the position to control by words. Examples that come to mind would be two of the ultimate ‘snake oil salesmen’ – politicians and ‘religious salesmen (men of the cloth)’. Oh, and the pontificators of the ‘coverup’ – wandering husband! To ‘know’ from experience and positive wisdom is quite different than ‘intellect babbling’. Better to spend time examining the inner and seeing the results of manifestation than spending life pontificating what amounts to meaningless conjecture.
Give a person a ready made belief system or ideology (might even be money investing!), and they’ll devote all portions of their brain to ‘hardwire’ themselves much to the exclusion of all other information, much of which is likely to objectively counter what they claim to know. Religious pundits can be the worse. Those who make money selling god are usually well educated and primed from religious biblical college indoctrinations on how to sell the masses. It’s shameful but they only tell the followers in the pews what they want to hear to keep donations flowing in.
Go it alone without the intruders of the mind. Love is always a welcome ‘intruder’ for the open heart. Move with ‘watchfulness’ while letting go of judgement which is like a boomerang always seeming to come back as a judgment. As in the piece ‘Desiderata’ by an Max Ehrmann in the 1920’s –
“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence….Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit.”
Silence is the best teacher – listen to your heart!
