The Seiker Podcast, Ep 107:
Presently, a protest or rally is the most dangerous place to be because it leaves us vulnerable and susceptible to a force we are currently unaware of.
Nietzsche once warned: “He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee.” Such a statement rings true today, more than ever, as we watch the mob-mentality infest many of the protesters, even those who attend for peaceful purposes. Furthermore, this virus spreads through the forest of social media, further consuming those who consume the videos, blog posts, and memes surrounding these events.
What is the Monster?
In essence, the monster is us – the human being.We are not all monsters, but we all have the potential to become the monster if we are not mindful, and protective of our vulnerable emotional system. The abyss represents our emotional energy, which is freely exposed through our human heart, as demonstrated by HeartMath studies. We are constantly transmitting and receiving emotional data from one another. When in a crowd, it takes only a single emotional explosion to create a wildfire of change across the moods and behaviors of participants. Until we learn to be mindful of our emotional state, we find ourselves vulnerable and susceptible to the manipulative agendas of others.
What Can We Do?
When we apply our energy to stop the energy flow of others, we exhaust our resources. We focus all of our efforts, intention, and focus on stopping the energy of our adversaries. However, if we instead take the energy of those we oppose and use it to fuel a new direction altogether, we are expending less energetic resources and instead contributing to something that is not rooted in conflict, but instead rooted in change. There is real power here. In addition, there are wonderful studies surrounding the Maharishi affect that have shown (through research) that when just 1% of a given population is engaged in meditation, rates of violence and crime significantly reduce in that area. Imagine if we could organize ourselves to mediate and directly impact the energetic field surrounding our communities!
It is time to stop reacting to the symptoms of a greater problem and instead start treating the cause!
