    New age Coolio

    How to be new age cool

    Coolio number 1

    Act as if you are neutral about everything, and say things like “there is no such thing as right and wrong, good and bad, positive and negative”…

    Observation

    I find this to be quite, interesting, how some humans will say things like this, yet at times, they act, react, as if something is bad or wrong, without using the words, right and wrong, good and bad…etc…it sais to me that they are either in denial that they do in fact believe in right, wrong, good, bad, positive, negative, because they have judged this to be negative, somehow…sometimes people don’t want to admit (with some, even to themselves) that they do have some bias…as if they are fighting it, but trying to ignore it…because they judge themselves and others to be wrong in having some bias.

    Is anyone totally neutral on everything, all the time? Or do some just want to be? Is it more a case of acting how you want to be, rather than expressing who you are in the now…?

    If people were really neutral about everything, would they argue, or have a heated debate, or try (indirectly or directly, with expectation or without expectation, consciously or subconsciously, attached or not attached) to get someone to see, to know, to understand something, the way that they do?

    Coolio number 2

    Be bisexual, some believe (though will deny it when confronted about it) that they are more loving and more evolved then mono-sexuals…boy, does this make them feel good!

    Observation

    Just another excuse for narcissism, in a “spirituality” wrapper…



    Coolio number 3

    Have several different, not committed to, partners (or say that you want that), expressing that you are not attached to anyone because you are so evolved and don’t need anyone

    Observation

    Sometimes, this is to do with fear of intimacy, fear of rejection, fear of attachment, fear of loss, fear of being hurt, fear of not being good enough, that does not allow one to be open enough to receive true love with one partner...so, they push it away…and it makes them feel better to tell themselves (and perhaps others), that this is because they are so, strong and un-needy, they boast “I don’t need anyone”…

    At times, this is because they have felt ashamed about them being too needy and attached in a relationship in the past…



    Sometimes, Coolio number 3, can also be to do with wanting many sexual partners as they will get bored with just one, another” spirituality” cover up story…to show us that they are not “dick heads”…

    Coolio number 4

    Act as if you don't care at all about what people think of you

    Observation

    BS (sorry, I don’t feel like writing anymore, wanted to keep it simple-o)

    Today, “Pluto” has come out to play, I have to give him some expression sometimes…

    Does my ego think it’s non age coolio for writing these stuffs? Sure it does! (I got there before you did! Just telepathically or written). Everyone has an ego for sultana’s sake…which reminds me of

    Coolio number 5

    “I don’t have an ego”

    Observation


    This ad goes away when you register.

    In denial of their own ego because of judging it to be negative and only belonging to the less evolved …and to say this, is coming from ego, itself…it’s an egotistical thing to say; only ego will say this…

    Ok, just one more…for now (lol)

    Coolio number 6

    Allow bullying and abuse, because it makes you more of a compassionate and non judgemental person (more than those “polarized” judgmental people who do not want to allow it…)

    Observation

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm…well….a few things…just one important one, is that it can influence people to turn a blind eye to cruelty…some people fall for this trap (the trap is not necessarily set consciously), perhaps partly because of their own deep down fears and insecurities?

    And another thing, to end, some people try and act as if they are no so called (fashionable new age word), “polarized in anyway at all, when it is so obvious, to those who can see/feel it at the time, that a part of them, is…

    To summaries, many people are not truly confident in who they are in the now…and they feel deep down shame of certain aspects of self, that they try to hide…

    This world is upside down in many ways…including new age coolio

    Of course, imo…(oh that’s another one, coolio number 7, don’t ever say imo and criticise it’s use when someone else uses it….ok, I better be done now, lol)

    I love people who say and do or have done any of this new age Coolios…just felt like pointing out some BS, and truths is all, lol

    No one is free of ignorance, no one is free of BS...

    Really well written critique of the newage movement, was it inspired by this site, or from general observation and experience in your life with newagers?

    I see some things, and I mostly don't talk about them...I am a watcher (as well as many other things)...I'm not as unaware as some assume...I most often do not want to interfere, and just want to let it be...sometimes, i want to express something...to reveal something...but don't like to do it as a personal thing...and i see some things that many,most,all of us have in common, the above post can relate to everyone, in one way or another...not just new age coolio...that's one directed expression of some of these deep down things, that can get in the way of love and truth...

    Of course, it does get in the way, with all of us at times (or are there a very small number of people that this is not true at all, ever for?)...with some more than others, with some, in some ways, and not in other ways...

    I do believe in right and wrong...I have tried to kid myself before "no, I don't agree but don't see it as wrong"...and then something didn't feel quite right, i asked myself "really, do you really not think it's wrong?" Yes, I did feel it was wrong" I called myself out, kind of thing..that's not to say that if i say i don't see it as wrong that I'm not being truthful, sometimes i truly don't see something as "wrong", just that there have been times when i wanted to not see/feel something as wrong, but a part of me did see/feel it was...

    if, for example, someone goes up to a stranger, and chops off their leg, to me, the action is wrong...if I was there when it happened, i certainly would not feel it was "ok", i certainly would not feel/be neutral about it...

    And yes, IS (including my own ego and wounds and ignorance!), and other stuff not on IS, has been part of inspiring me to write this...

    lol yes I think you are demonstrating the brainwashing technique in this..

    Like with saying "there is no right and wrong" is just a paradox, but obviously used by the person saying it to maintain control and superiority without appearing so.

    your op is much more interesting than my assumption....very good points
    Coolio #6 is a bit of a struggle for me. I came to IS fresh out of a very rough, ruthless world. At first I went clear to the other side...maybe I had to be as light as I was dark to regain my footing and find balance.

    yeah, this does happen sometimes, the brain washing thing.......

    some of the people who fall for it, conciser themselves to be strong, and tough, and not easily manipulated....but, very, very clever and intuitive manipulation, can get some of these people, sometimes...I see it, but I won't call it out to the persons...

    I can understand this pebble...I went a similar way (as in growing something i wasn't strong in) on here with asserting how i see/feel about things...in real life, lack of assertiveness has been an issue for me...(less so as "time goes by")

    Sometimes we do go from one extreme to another to find balance...I know...

    Thanks for the reminded of this...

    why on earth did i picture a naked butt when i read this. Are you naked or something? lol

    maybe it was the chunky choco that reminded me of poo-poo, and poo-poo reminded me of bum-bum (lol)
