It’s What We Do

When I worked in a school, one of my worst experiences was a particular Maths class when they had a supply teacher. If the usual teacher was present, they were a nice class, but when they had a supply teacher, they became rude and horrible, out of control. On one occasion I was speaking to a girl about why they did this, and her reply was “It’s what we do”.

Since then, I have noticed this pattern of human behaviour everywhere. The going along with the group flow. It’s like a flowing river of group energy that you get swept along with. Or you struggle to resist. Or you step out and become isolated on the side.

Another example is in the book 1984, where Winston describes being sucked into the daily 2 minutes Hate. Even though he really doesn’t want to join in, he has to or it will be noticed, and by the end of the 2 minutes, he is actually starting to feel the hate that is being generated by the energy of himself and everyone around him.

In both cases the fear of ostracision is a driving force, but there is also a more innate feeling of a group behaviour pattern to go along with. It seems to me that it is a natural way to be, to be part of the group, and that’s the carrot, the lure, that can easily pull us in.

In the world of conspiracy researchers, I often find that a certain code of behaviour and thinking is expected. “It’s what we do” applies here as well as anywhere else. People get a lot of flak for daring to speak against the expected flow of the perceived group. I personally don’t like to view anything as a fixed group, or a movement, as it tends to set up walls and rules.

This pattern of human behaviour makes us vulnerable to hijack from powers that want to control humanity. If they can get enough people to behave, or think a certain way, then they have everyone swept away in the flow that goes in THEIR preferred direction. One big example is the death worship of 11/11. Another is sending your kids to school. Nearly everyone else does it, difficult to drop out.

With vaccines, a percentage uptake is always quoted as essential for the vaccine to work. I often wonder if this is about the group effect, getting enough people doing it to make sure the group effect carries the whole thing along effortlessly. That was why the MMR vaccine drop out rate was such a problem for the government. There were too many dissenters and they were stopping the flow.

This same group effect can work for good. I have been practising yoga for over 10 years, and I know it well enough to do it by myself at home. But somehow, going to a class makes a huge difference. It’s because there is a whole group of us doing it together. It’s much easier to focus, and much easier to achieve the more difficult postures. It also feels more purposeful. This is the effect of the group. It’s as if we are all feeding off each others energy, and everyone benefits effortlessly.

If the group behaviour is beneficial, then the group effect effortlessly perpetuates the good stuff. And no one wants to drop out.

The Continuum Concept is a book about child raising, set in the context of a South American tribe. It describes how the group effect naturally repeats over the generations. In our Westernised societies, we are often fighting against the group effect because of the way it has been hijacked to drive bad forces. But in this South American tribe, there is no need to struggle, because the forces are all healthy and good, and effortlessly sweep everyone along.

    I think of people as belonging to three groups. There are the majority who are sheep and act as a flock in exactly the way you describe. Then there are the sheep dogs who control the flock. You can easily see in society who the sheep dogs are. Then there are people like me: cats. The cats do their own thing quietly and stealthily. Cats have a natural aversion to sheep dogs. You never see a flock of cats.

      That’s hit a bit of a trigger with me George. I am a bit averse to cats, possibly because of that stealthy loner thing. I prefer dogs, and the sheepdog is my favourite! If I was to farm animals, I would pick sheep.
      I think there is more to sheep than we think. The Holy Lamb for a start… What’s that about? Maybe sheep were once what humans were, and then they got diminished somehow, so that they are now fearful and easily herded. I have recently had different sort of experiences with sheep whereby they come to me, instead of running away.

      I never noticed before that cats are never in groups. Interesting. Though lions are.

      The sort of group I was thinking of is less to do with categorising, and more to do with connecting to other human energy around you, whoever happens to be there. It could be whoever’s in a shop at the same time as you, or the whole population of your area. It always seems to have an effect.

    There is, in fact, a fourth group, George. This is the One the manifestation of which (apparently invisible to members of the first & much of the second group) on ocasions makes cats jump (almost) out of their skin with surprise! This fourth group is distinguished by its resolute inclusion of the former three , together with all other groups. Its known as Unified Consciousness. Perhaps its predominent characteristic, whereby it remains virtually invisible (representing as it does, also, the 99% of non-material reality on the 3-d plane), contributes towards explaining why, equally, it continues to remain virtually “out of sight, out of mind”. Yet this is where all cats too “flock” to in the end, un-a-VOID-ably…following, of course, their ninth life ! 🙂

    • suliwebster says:

      I think this is the sort of energy flow that I was thinking of. The one that connects us all.
      Cats are associated with witches too, as well as 9 lives and not being in flocks. There’s probably more to cats that we think too.

    UPDATE: Someone said to me today “It’s What We Do” !!! It was in relation to teenage (and older) excessive drinking, to the point of making yourself ill, and almost unconscious. It is something that troubles me, this acceptance of it as normal, something that everyone does. Just because it’s normal doesn’t mean it’s good. But you can see how it’s been sneaked in to the culture, and then it just runs itself on the group energy effect.

    It’s what differentiates an identification to being “we are” as opposed to an identification inasmuch as a sovereign “I AM”.
    This evokes the dual, apparently mutually exclusive (but not, in “fact” at all :)) status of the ‘human being’; at once identified with their physical body/ego incarnation – itself ephemeral- and (by some) with a sovereign, divine, immortal multi-dimensional being.
    As for : “Its what we do”, if there was only one way there would be only one person !

    • amosouldeer says:

      …and if there “WEre” only one way, it would at once denote a more grammatically acceptable expression and herald the re-unificatuion of “we” into “One” 🙂

  5. suliwebster says:

    The WE ARE works well when it’s something good. It doesn’t work so well when you instinctively cry out against the group flow, but feel swept along. That’s when its time to be I AM. I have to say that I enjoy both aspects within my life, I don’t see either as being particularly right or wrong.
