Giggle Giggle

It makes me giggle a bit (just a bit) when I read or hear someone who teaches right thinking saying they are “sick and tired” of something.  When people use language like that it tells me there is some level of disconnect between what they teach and what they think.

Often when I see this it is just marketing, playing on your fears.  They are describing their own emotional reaction to something they think you are also emotionally reacting to.  They are trying to build rapport through a common bond – a common sales tactic I have used myself selling life insurance and securities.  You are not alone in whatever ails you and that, they think, creates the common bond which in turn makes it easier for them to sell you something.  We usually like people who are like us, even if the similarities are the negatives we feel and experience.  We buy from people we like.

But think about this… someone is going to try to sell you something to teach you how to not be sick and tired of things, yet they are sick and tired of things?  Isn’t that like your parents telling you as a child not to smoke and drink as they smoke and drink in front of you?

“The only thing more expensive than education is ignorance.”

Benjamin Franklin

It is my understanding that when you reach a certain level of awareness (or awakening) things outside of your own thoughts and focus do not make you sick and tired.  In fact, to me they kind of pass unnoticed or at least without the effect of making you sick and tired.

Of course, since I’ve noticed this and brought it to your attention means I may have just pulled you and I one step in the wrong direction.  Maybe.  I am by no means sick and tired of the hypocrisy but it sure does give me a giggle.
