Conscious relationships and socialization

Postby jtightlips21 » Sat Apr 02, 2016 6:08 pm

Basically how to remain conscious when relating to others? To be honest, I have a hard time relating to people who show any traits of the collective ego, such as excessive conformity, groupthink, or expressive disapproval(Such as constant criticism and lecturing, or treating others like outsiders). The collective ego is even difficult when I am in a state of consciousness. I find it worse when a friend gets taken over by the collective ego, which is like the analogy of the trojan horse where the collective snuck into me.

By realizing that awareness / consciousness is never not present. By noticing that what is seen is not only seen by but is also the one consciousness even when appearing as an other person identifying with common thoughts.
