Default I just don`t understand some people..

Hi all

I have been trying to spread the word on different topics, swin flu vacine as one of them, this I am trying to do on various sites I am a member of.

Seems a lot of people just don`t want to hear it, some sites wont give permission for me to upload youtube and other information links, saying people will fall asleep reading this sort of rubbish

To spread the word and make people aware is such a hard thing to achieve.

You're right they don't want to wake up.
They are happy watching X factor and EastEnders.
If you tell them things they don't want to hear you just **** them off and they even try to make fun of you. Twats.
I've given up now

Hi Ammit

All you need do is keep on doing, those that are meant to recieve will, those who are deep in the arms of amorphous will stay there....

Remember one thing, you are a blessing to them that need what you have to share.

LL&P (as always)

My sympathies!
I often get "yeah yeah yeah yeah" while I'm explaining.
However, my mother is now refusing vaccines, and that's a result believe me!
My OH now believes, and takes colloidal silver.
Don't get in a panic about your nearest and dearest, they have to make their own decisions - but if the information is drip fed to them, they can make informed choices.
I am noted for promoting D3 and vitamin C in a few forums, and people are listening. Some folk have refused Tamiflu and Cervarix because of my 'drip-feeding'.
You can change the world 1 person at a time - good luck, don't give up

Did any of you 'flip to consciousness' like a light switch because someone told you something?
Or did you slowly 'morph' your consciousness to your current thought patterns because the path you walked through life led you to this point?
To me awareness simply means 'exposure to information'.
And that's all you can do is expose people to information be it your opinion or facts you gathered and if their path leads to similar conclusions so be it,
if not so be it, you still made them 'aware'.

I do find it disheartening, I wouldnt mind if they posed an argument amount the information or even looked at it from a different angle, but most just raise a hand and tell me im nuts or that they are just not interested.

I suppose I also have to look at it from there point of view.

Ammit: I agree, its very frustrating when they don't even want to listen to what you have to say.

Interesting though, how they are quite happy to share something they are passionate about with us, & they expect us to listen to them & participate in the conversation. They are incapable however of giving us the same respect. Very one sided indeed.

I don't waste my time/energy on such people now.........I am happy to let them wallow in their ignorance. I just focus my energy on my own life & staying sane throughout all the changes.

There is plenty of info out there on the net, that cannot escape their attention, if they want to read it.

I have a blog...I localized it (language)...gathered data from variety of sources...wrote about stuff in a logical way...explanations, commentaries...step by step...with pictures, embedded videos, links to official and less official news pages...all in one place in our language...something I always wanted so I went and did it myself...

Now the language of the blog is a native tongue to a less than 2 million people...which means that number of visits was not that great..but out of those visits...the bounce rate of the blog was/is 73-75% and the comments are almost non existing.

So I stopped posting stuff on the blog about a month ago. It took me a lot of time...

I live in a small country...the word goes around quickly...if the media wants it to... I was hoping to slowly reach out to more and more people...but nothing happened. So after 226 days I stopped. I never even got an e-mail message from any of the readers....

I also comment on the web issue of our most emm biggest and "intellectual" news paper (you can comment under the articles)...and some people see the "truth" but are ignorant about it (do not care much..and make fun of it...) but the majority is blind and also there are people that directly oppose my comments and try to discredit me and they do in a extremely obvious way, like writing: USA No1. god save the USA, etc

This seems to be a common phenomena in the world. It can be very "sad" and extremely ungrateful to talk with people about possibilities (just possibilities), let alone the "facts" and I never even mention the ET subject..the whole debates are about politics, economy, social structure, global events, history...etc

I have reached a "conclusion" that it is far from worth it. Do not misunderstand this..my blog is not a Christmas three (no commercials on it). I am not in it for money. I dislike money.

People need to get a harsh lesson. While their asses are nice and warm they will not change a thing or care about truth even if you write, draw, read and sing it to them.

Even now I am watching the Brussels conference with PC and people in chat room behave like a bunch of retards...sorry but they do. They also did yesterday and they also did during the LA conference and it is just sad. I even recognize some of the nick names from the LA and the same names here now...making obscene, immature, stupid, insulting statements about the conference and people on it (including Bill and Kerry)

In all of places...one would expect that people interested in spending the weekend watching the live stream of a Ground Crew conference would show more "light".

You are one third My age... Honey is an endearment... If You have a little Boy You do not call him, Honey ? Really... If he should have a problem at school or with a friend; whereas, he Needs support... Just, what term of endearment would YOU use.

See, its Not what One has between their legs... Its what one has in that
gray matter between the EARS... And, they say 'what percentage' of gray
matter is used. Me I was Honey to Uncles and family, friends, cousin's etc.
Well, into My forties...

You want to wake up people to what...? And, they call U what...? and, Why?

Trooly,

Tango is from the US also......I don't want to put words on Tango's paper but I think it's time our egos get thrown away.

We were put here to serve others before ourselves.....we turned into self serving wimps.

"What about me...Where's mine??...That's not fair"....you hear it all the time.

I struggle with this daily...to shed the ego that the whole world is centered around me.....and it does but we are all connected.

All one.....the good for one is the good for all.

So giving to the next person is really giving it back to yourself.

So is Honey....A blessing of nature

Blessings

Trooly,
OMG your 135 years old.

Lol, you do not have to explain yourself Tango my friend, its just a strange hard place over here, I just look at my 8 year old son and he knows i am there 100%, all loving daddy, i look at his friends and they usually appologise and come round for bbq`s.

Lets have a look, yup still a big hairy mass, lol.

I do understand fully what you are saying but you have to be so carefull over here otherwise you get a name and probably even a free stay in a local establishment that has next to your bed ensuite and a window with bars.

People dont seem to want to wake up, tv programs and fast food during the intervals are all that is required by some.

Swanny.... This one kinda, knocked My socks off... Here, I did My best,
with your back.... Knee...

For every Name on the Healing List... Think I care, care which is of what...
Maybe, I'm wrong... Maybe, I should consider THAT in doing the Healing of
this forum.... Well, that's a male... He doesn't NEED my help... He has balls.
Or, That sick child... If I try to HEAL them its about male; female....

Well, Now, I guess... I should question My self.... Maybe I should consider.

As, You have... My Intentions.

I spent 8 years heavily involved on debate boards (mostly parenting and political), so I understand your frustration. It doesn't feel good to be harshly rejected and criticized.

After many years of bantering back with my own attacks, I tried something entirely novel. I started responding to personal attacks with love and understanding. And this is when I really became effective.

Ultimately, I decided that my desire to reach people was more important than my desire to retaliate...and the insults began rolling off my back without much effort.

I posted for the lurkers. I was never going to change the minds of my opposition. That was never the point. I needed the opposition to supply the counterpoints so I could address them publicly.

So, I hope you won't give up on this. There are people who will consider your views if you present them in a loving and logical way. Do it for the lurkers.

I shall indeed keep trying to reach them but now in a different way, Thankyou.

At the end of it all, if I did not feel love and compassion for this human race then I dont think I would even bother to try.

Ammit,



Be assured that the universe salute's you and your efforts. It is a fantastic thing your are doing, but it can be a bit like pushing water up a hill with a rake. Everything happens for a reason though...

Take it one step at a time.

One breath at a time.

The light you bring will do its job eventually - and little matches start big fires.

Just keep soldiering on - but keep using your intelligence - review your actions - prioritize - question everything - become more efficient.

Every step you take, every word of truth that you utter which strikes a chord in the heart of another is a huge and worthy success. You only need to help one more person for your efforts to become worthwhile - but you will in fact help many.

Welcome to the law of allowance and the freewill of others!

A..
