Does anyone have the right to ‘speak on the behalf of’? | Aeon Essays

A very thought provoking essay

In the tapestry of diverse social groups, the loudest and most extreme get heard. To whom should we actually listen?

“When we look to social media and news media to find out what a social group thinks about an issue, we should bear in mind that we’re not getting a balanced picture. We’re getting a small sample of people who happen to be motivated enough to write something, or who are confident enough to write, or who have been empowered (or have empowered themselves) to write. If we want to know what members of the wider social group think, rather than just a few individual members who might or might not be representative, then we’ll have to do more.”

Exit From The Matrix: the stage-play of Self and the global mystery

Exit From The Matrix: the stage-play of Self and the global mystery

by Jon Rappoport

March 31, 2018

Consider that everything happening on planet Earth is an enormous stage play.

The mystery is: what is the theme? What is the payoff? What is the climax?

And even more deeply, what is the role of Self, the individual, in this play?

The key phrase is “in this play.” Because most people are, indeed, inside the play. They have roles. They may not be aware of the parts they’re playing, but that doesn’t change the situation or the dilemma.

How unusual would it be if, in a theater, in a city, citizens were led on to a stage to audition for parts—and the director said, “Well, we want you in this production, but we can’t show you the script. We can’t tell you your role. You’ll just have to feel your way…

Nature noticing – forest schools

I have always been a walker, a wanderer, an observer of nature large and small. Each morning as I head off with B.B. (Billy Bounce my life coach ) my eyes touch softly on plants and birds and animals and insects. It is a joy to stop and observe and even communicate with these beings.

But it continually surprises me how few people allow themselves the time to see the life around them. Many times a neighbour or stranger striding past will stop and (if they are brave enough) ask quietly “what are you looking at?” And when I point it out they are delighted too. But how can folk walk around and just not see, that astonishes me.

Recently I have connected with a young woman who is a trained teacher and who is exploring the idea of Forest Schooling, or Wilding or what ever title you give it. It is an incredible concept I hope to learn more about and maybe find a role as a Nana-storyteller or Nana-play companion.

Quite exciting for me. As basically the concept seems like what I used to call common sense parenting. I treasure my memories of the freedom of school holidays when ever schedule was thrown aside and the days were our own. We could choose pjs all day, or forest fantasy adventures or ANYTHING.

Looking forward to how this develops

A letter from Albert Einstein to his daughter: about The Universal Force which is LOVE

Ahh
The power of love ❤️

You Are The Light That You Always Have Been

In the late 1980s, Lieserl, the daughter of the famous genius, donated 1,400 letters, written by Einstein, to the Hebrew University, with orders not to publish their contents until two decades after his death. This is one of them, for Lieserl Einstein.More can be found about Lieserl here

…”When I proposed the theory of relativity, very few understood me, and what I will reveal now to transmit to mankind will also collide with the misunderstanding and prejudice in the world.
I ask you to guard the letters as long as necessary, years, decades, until society is advanced enough to accept what I will explain below.
There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been…
