I had/have no interest in most of what society feels is important – political issues or being either for or against certain seeming good causes, like saving the whales or feeding the hungry or being vegetarian or any of the myriad of so-called concerns and interests. I very rarely read the newspaper or watch the news. I have no interest in social media – Facebook, Twitter etc.
I don’t recall creating this energy bundle of what is termed ‘my’ personality traits – my likes, interests, abilities or lack of abilities – my motivations, urges and desires as well as my repulsions and lack of motivations.
There has been an apparent shift in this perspective of being special; to simply being nothing special at all.
For whatever reason, my invisible Zen stick rattles when I hear people speak of “they”; as if there is a “they and them separate from me and mine”. And pushing off responsibility for “things” on to some obscure THEY.
