Ever heard of a Social Construct? If you haven’t, it’s a really interesting topic…
*Concept or perception of something based on the collective views developed and maintained within a society or social group*
I am intrigued by anything to do with social engineering and whatsoever, oppressive which is determined by others, because of an imbalance of power, concerns me. However, in this case, I use this particular concept for the focus of ourselves. I have been noticing more and more over the last few years that there seems to be a ‘Social Awakening’ a conscious reality, that was once subconscious, is being gently nudged before I our eyes…
Okay, so think about it.. I am no political animal, nor am I a conspiracy theorist or, CIA intelligence officer. I am just a normal woman, who happens to think quite deeply about all things and sometimes comes up with conclusions based on intelligent thought, reading a lot and of which, uses evidence substantiated by google………lol Trustworthy? Who knows….
Stay with me on this, for a moment though!…… I ask you to examine your daily intake of life and consider your daily routine, including what your read, hear and experience or hear about others, in the world. How does it affects the rest of society locally, nationally and even globally?
When was the last time you were able to think for yourself, without being affected by an opinion based on other people’s thinking, thoughts, comments and theories. When did you ever feel like you were FREE from influences or biases based on something else. Yeah…. I had to think hard about that too. Everything I questioned and everything you question, appears to be based on somebody else’s influential take on things. This social construct is deep!
If a collective viewpoint is developed and maintained within a society, that means that, by default it is a tool, depending on how you look at it, in effect to create stereotypes, influencing social markets consumers, points of law, going to war, committing criminal acts. Determining what you wear, ‘how to think’ where to go, even down to choices you think you make freely, is often subtly influenced by this very concept. I suggest when you are conscious of this, as you will inevitably at some point, experience that very said ‘ awakening’ I mentioned earlier. That is when you know it is time to unplug…. to me its a sign of the subconscious, finally recognising what the conscious was trying hard to keep a lid on. That feeling you have, when you want to be sick, but you are able to use your body to control it from coming up… ( Sorry for the unappealing analogy) lol. But you get what I mean right?
Some say….‘ Something is happening’ while others, lament that that the world is going crazy. I don’t know about you, but whatever your persuasion , belief system or theory. Something is moving and shifting….. the unspoken silence is being broken down. Whatever you do believe, maybe its that time to unplug from the world and get back to yourself. What does that even feel like? Can you remember when you actually had a thought, that was all your own?
I mean the thoughts that govern your choices to do things in the world, having an opinion, to create or make changes.
Can you imagine what you will discover, how infinitely powerful you are and what you could achieve, if it wasn’t for all those social constructs that are planted to take you away from yourself. What an adventure it would be don’t you think?
So are your ready to unplug yet?
