In fact, it would be fair to say that nothing, in this Universe that seeks continually to create energetic balance as a principle of its Oneness, is random.
At one time, the tree that fell in the forest was felt in small vibrations, by those living in the forest, or those thinking about the forest. Nowadays, the tree that falls in the forest is likely filmed and put on YouTube within the hour.
We’re not more interconnected than we used to be; we’re just more aware of this connection—as if we’re being presented a new understanding of Oneness.
I've been thinking lately about Oneness, interconnectivity and how social media and the internet have been game changers these last decades.The thing is, it's almost impossible to get out of the game.
Sure, the connectivity was all there before—we just couldn't see it, hear it…we weren't cognizant of our connection. But now, the game's on 24/7, in ways we sometimes can't get clear of, even when we unplug, turn off, disengage.
For some of us, when we begin to use social media (which is basically connection via the energy,) we may start to intuit or have a flash or hit of knowing or recognizing information or details about each person we come in contact with. So that every single Twitter feed arrives with a full picture or sense of the person who’s sending it.
This isn’t always pleasant or desired.
It's similar to what happens when you head into a crowd. If you stop and take in the energy of the crowd, if you open to the connection—then all of the information about everyone just floods in.
Again, it’s not always pleasant or desired.
The difference is, we used to have this sensation in public, whenever we sought connection. But now, social media has become a template or a trainer to allow us to recognize the bigger connection—to everyone, all things, all time, all events, to everything—that's always been there.
It can't be turned off, because it's what we are.
There is discomfort, as we all move to this realization.
There's also a lot of excitement, as we understand that we are changing.
