If You Ever Feel Alone, Read This

My heart really went out to a girl tonight. over on VacTruth’s Facebook page a mother wrote:
“Okay, I need to vent. I am the mother of a child who was injured by the MMR vaccination. He has a rare form of epilepsy called Doose Syndrome. I have made it my mission to share our story of pain and if healing. However, whenever the topic of my refusal to vaccinate him, or my fully un-vaccinated 15 month old, I am ridiculed and judged.
I have been told I am being neglectful and even uneducated! This being said from the same people who will read the back of their cereal boxes but not the inserts of vaccinations! How do you all keep your spirits up when being so deeply ridiculed? I have even considered NOT sharing our story to protect my family from such harsh and uninformed judgement and hate.
I have no one in my personal life who opts for no vaccinations and am feeling pretty alone here. I feel like one person trying to fend off a pack of wolves!”
For what it’s worth, I replied:
OK mum, please accept a spiritual hug from me!
And another!
I feel your pain.
I well recall 44 years ago trying to convince my immediate senior to implement a change that would have led to greater efficiency and more production only to be told, “No.”
After rephrasing the proposal only to be greeted by the same response I asked, “Why?”
The answer I received rocked my world, “I don’t want to.”
It was my first perception that there was more to the mind than I knew of.
Since then I have studied much and learned volumes.
One of the things I learned is that there are some people so deeply inculcated into the absolute necessity of following authority that they will defend all opposing data and logic with the most extreme vilification. Nothing whatsoever to do with you.
As a matter of fact, a great many people go through life not even looking. You are obviously prepared to look and question. That is so far above where most people are at. Did you see the recent post on Facebook? “Common sense is so rare it should be classified as a super power!”
The ability to set aside one’s opinions, prejudices, beliefs and even data, to actually look at new data is a remarkably high ability.
To then be careful to retain the conviction of your own observation despite it being in conflict with any personal vested interest and despite opposition from others around one is a very high state of personal integrity. Congratulations!
Expect no less than what you are experiencing for that is the low state of most individuals who have been for decades indoctrinated into the subservience to “authority knows best”. For more data on this read Charlotte Iserbit’s book The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America. www.deliberatedumbingdown.com/?
If I may make a recommendation. You mission is not with those people. Sure, I could give you techniques for chiselling cracks in their armour of prejudice, and, if you get really competent with the people whose minds are not so firmly shut that you wish to tackle the hard nuts, come back to me and I will share those techniques with you.
I see your mission to be with those who are not so concrete hardened in their views. Those who are closer to your level of awareness. Those who will listen to your story. Sure they might ask a probing question or ten. But it from interest, not an attempt to find something to discredit.
Any time you are attacked, do two simple things.
1. Say to yourself, “They are not my target public.”
2. Erase that person from your communication lines.
Older societies had a method for dealing with trouble makers like that. They were outcast from the tribe.
No malice. No hatred. No lack of impetus to your forward progress. For you are the fire truck and your mission is to not be distracted by the curs yapping at your wheels. It is to apply some water to douse the deadly fires that consume the health of too many of our young.
