It is time for a new conversation. We need this new conversation, badly. The conversation we are currently having is not only inadequate, but has become quite painful, and it is entirely obvious that this new conversation cannot wait. If we are to succeed in liberating the world from the grip of darkness, the new conversation is essential.
Before addressing the nature of the current conversation and the nature of the new conversation, let’s quickly look at the ‘we’, who is having the conversation. This ‘we’ is the collective population of conscious Souls, who is invested in dramatically improving the conditions of life on the planet. This ‘we’ is a diverse group of people, united by no other factor than their desire to heal the world. This ‘we’ is growing ever larger, as the chaos and corruption have become impossible to tolerate, and there is a growing sense of urgency giving rise to the impulse to take action. This ‘we’ will transform the world, because we deeply care and thus have the vision to do so, and we have the confidence that our will cannot be impeded.
The word ‘conversation’ in this context means the overall exchange of words and energy, whether it be through direct verbal interaction or other means. It could be chat rooms, social media, phone calls, blogs, videos, book groups, classroom discussion, town-hall meetings, or even hand-written letters delivered by snail mail. They are all part of this conversation, as they are all means of communication. In every encounter and exchange we partake in, we have the opportunity to levitate the conversation to a loftier place where consciousness rises and all parties benefit from their participation. In this sense, raising the level of conversation is crucial, and cannot be understated.
To better understand what the new conversation is, let’s contrast it with the best example of bad conversation: politics. Certainly on the national level, it is aimless, petty, and mostly left-brained. Although the players are well-groomed and well-dressed, the facade has too many cracks to hide from eyes that are willing to see. Beneath this facade is a foul decay, and hence there is no justification in giving away our power to them. The conversation they are having is flawed in every way, but it is more useful to point out that it is their vibe that is the major problem, and that their words are generally too idiotic to pay much attention to.
This brings us to an important distinction regarding communication, which is: content versus dynamics. Content is the meaning of the words themselves, whereas dynamics refers to everything else, including facial expressions, hand gestures, body language, rate of speech, tonality, range of pitch, eye contact, and a plethora of more subtle energies… The dynamics may account for well over 80% of communication, as revealed by advertising and marketing firms who are far more interested in targeting your emotions than your intellect.
Generally speaking, in politics the dynamic range of communication is very limited, and this is considered ‘proper’. This stiff vibe (or lack of a vibe) itself is dishonest as it does not reflect the nature of the radiant Soul, and it is also dreadfully boring. It has been stated that the body does not lie, but going a step further, a body which never moves naturally is a lie. The body follows the mind, and reveals the nature of its master. This ‘proper’ and dishonest kind of stiff, scripted, and heartless communication has infected most of society, and is endemic to all major institutions, such as schools and universities, the medical establishment, the justice system, and everything else run by the government. The suit and tie, and uniforms of all supposed authority figures are cut from the same cloth.
If we are to consider ourselves conscious, we certainly should not be following the lead of this insane role model. Our conversation must be more dynamic, and this inevitably means that the level of conversation will deepen, as it can only do so with greater dynamism. A lack of dynamics allows us to keep a ‘safe’ distance and is an unconscious means of placing barricades between ourselves and others, as benign as it may seem. Conversation which is lacking in dynamism feels disingenuous, as it is the nature of an awakened Soul to be honest and real, and to communicate with their full capacity. But make no mistake: a charlatan can fake dynamism…yet the stank of phoniness cannot hide. Discernment is always necessary in a world of deceit, such that overt displays of dynamics may be less powerful than a subtle gaze of the eyes. Open your heart and your eyes will see.
The way to become more authentic and dynamic in our communication is simple: be honest. By your honest example, you will encourage others to be honest as well. Honesty always frees up energy that keeps us bound in piddly communication, releasing blocks and allowing more flow. Mutual honesty cannot help but deepen our relationships, and as any conscious being knows quite well, relationships are the most important aspect of our lives. Indeed, we could go so far as to make the statement that life itself is relationships, and therefore our experience of life will largely be based on their quality. Relationships with people, animals, our body, the natural world, Divinity… Even the work we are passionate about means little if we do not share it with others and uplift them or add meaning to their lives, so ultimately everything is about relationships.
In light of the new conversation, the implications for our actions in terms of dynamics and honesty is quite naturally to practice being more dynamic and honest. As far as dynamics, this might mean taking more risks in your communication, mostly by means of playful interactions with others. Feel free to joke around and be unconventional. Allow yourself more liberties in your interactions with ‘strangers’, and if you have friends that are willing to be silly, have some fun! Be creative.
As far as honesty, you will need others whom are willing to be honest as well to have a meaningful exchange, but don’t skip over the ‘little stuff’, like what you had for breakfast, your favorite new song, or what’s happening with your pets. Often, it’s the day-to-day that serves as a good entry point for honesty, and the difference between ‘small talk’ and real communication is…you! How much energy and authenticity do you bring to the conversation? Are you always you, or are you compartmentalized into a ‘business side’ and a ‘personal side’? The new conversation has no more room for compartmentalization. A cashier, dental hygienist, or garbage man, cannot remain ‘impersonal’. The new conversation sees no boundaries, if they don’t exist in reality.
