The other thing I’d like to share here is a lesson I’ve been learning from mainstream people.

And that’s to freakin’ keep it light and keep it fun.

This is something my soul has been missing… which is now something I realize has been going on.

Overall, things have gotten too serious and too in depth.

I’ve been re-learning how every conversation doesn’t have to be deep and meaningful.

Although I like these conversations, I also like light and fun conversations as well.

This is the fun of being a human, you can laugh at things, joke around, just talk about surface level things like…. “the manager wouldn’t turn on the sound on the game, what a douche bag”

There, simple, no big deal.

In the spiritual world, this would be a no-no.  Hey, it was just a joke.

I get it, it’s harmful.  It’s a form of violence.  (note, 7 day violence video), but yea, it’s also a lighthearted way of joking around.

I’ve also realized that I don’t need to tell everyone my business.

Whereas spiritual people appreciate those details and heart to heart conversations, many mainstream people don’t give a shit.

I’ve discovered that this is kind of freeing.  It doesn’t have to be that heavy energy of sharing all my business.  There’s no pressure to share or you’re not going heart to heart with someone or that you’re holding something back.  You don’t owe anyone, anything.

If I don’t want to text (which in my case it’s email to his phone which comes out as a text) back this basketball guy right away, I don’t have to.  If I want to ignore his text, than I can.  If I want to invite him to watch the game with him, I can.  If I don’t, then whatever..

Whereas with spiritual people – which in my eyes is synonymous with more sensitive people – I feel more concerned about these things, wanting to take care of them.  Not wanting to leave them out.

…. but again, this is my “stuff” and again, this has to do with that other post I made about boundaries and taking care of my emotions and energy and separating that from other people’s emotions, not being responsible…
